It has been in my family for quite a while, but has needed extensive work to get it back to something like its former glory.  This section of RustyTrucks is all about an old Fire Engine and what has been needed to save it from extinction.

This photo was kindly sent to me by a contributor to the Dodge section of the Classic Car Forum
I have some other hard-copies of older photos that I will be scanning and adding over time, but in doing so I am reminded just what a difference digital photography has made to the restoration game!

A full photographic record of the stages of this restoration is available by clicking the RustyTrucks area of photobucket.com.
For ease the photographs are broken down into time periods and an index can be accessed by clicking here or by selecting the "Recent and Ongoing Projects" button on the left.
You will see that not all the photos there are captioned at the moment, but that process is on-going (it takes quite a while!)  In the meantime, if you want to know more about any particular image, then please e-mail me.
Finally, by all means download photos for your own enjoyment, but if you want to use a photo for any other reason, please ask permission first.  Thanks.
