YAK Car (actually, Fire Truck) Pic of the Day

.

.

Been passing this thing on Grand Island for a number of years now. Finally, someone moved it to where I could get a good photo. It’s an American LaFrance fire truck (as if I have to tell you that!), circa 1970s (I’m guessing — they all look so much alike) Series 90 (also a guess, but a more educated one). Over the years, whenever I think of a fire truck (which admittedly isn’t that often) it’s one of these. AMF began business in 1873, and for a number of years, one of their manufacturing facilities was in Hamburg (they closed it in 2009).
