    Look here thats a good starting point, sweet! Now if I could only figure out if I could move the front mounted pump to the back.

    Ok I have another Quest but this one is easy:

    http://www.ebvfd.com/tradition/c2.htm Go here and help me find anyone of these trucks if you want. If you don't thats cool because we found the truck that I really wanted.

    Anyways the link is to East Banks Fire Department web site that I built for them. The link is to the section that has photos of the trucks. I'd love to find everything we had.


    Thanks:thumb: :wave:

    That website is a fine piece of work. I grew up in a similar house in the late 60s thru the 70s. The first color TV I ever saw was there and I got to sharpen my billiards skills on a genuine 9x5 slate table---even watched Apollo 11 land on the moon there. I'm sad that my little ones will never grow up with those memories that I have.
