Here it is in front of station 6, and the last time I saw her... when trying to buy her. Such a sad way to die, I would much rather see them go to scrap than this.
Argh!, and to think all the times I saw that rig responding...
I know one old Bethesda truckie (retired 1988) who would be sad to see that rig in that condition, he had a little to do with the subject of the attached article from the May, 1981 MFRI Bulletin. This project was actually completed the previous fall of 1980.0012.jpg

Nice, story, Rodger Runkles was my Cub Scout leader, and would stop and pick me up in front of my house to respond the the station for calls. I couldn't drive but I could ride on calls, what a time. As I read the article I can't but help see my SCOUND biggest pet peeve, fire apparatus with no roof and NO DOORS are "open cabs". If it has doors... it's a half cab or semi-cab, but calling them open cabs... one of those things that has stuck I guess and can never be corrected. lol

Brucobuff, I wish I had ALL the correct info to go with all the pictures I have. I would not be so nervous to post things, I can barely remember what photos I took. :oops: No clue who took all of these in my collection, it pains me.

Just post em up, we'll figure them out. I can always "phone a friend", if need be.
