No one ever listens to me, least of all my kids!! I was interested in that LaFrance because when I 1st joined our local Fire Co. 44 years ago as a kid, they had just taken out of service a '40 or '41 American LaFrance Engine. She had a big Flat Head V-12, dual ignition engine. Supposedly LaFrance built their own engines back then. I think it had a 5-SP tranny. I never got to drive it, but heard it purr some before they sold it. It had a 1,000GPM pump & they said she would really pump.
