Love it! It looks exactly like the real thing!!!
Thanks... I actually live in Moravia and my father is the chief. We just took her out the other day and she is puring like a kitten. It was also my parents wedding car. It was fully refurbed in '09 and is our parade piece. and it only goes to calls if the 50ft banger ladder is needed. It was also our first motorized ladder truck and was on first alarm for everything in the whole county. Back then there was only 3 ladders in the county.
