I'm glad you brought this one back to the light. It's raining and tornado warnings are out as well so a good time to reread this one. I sure hope you folks can save those survivors from the ravages of the scraper or weather. If they weren't so far away I sure would be thinking that way as these are really unique.

This truck turned up several years ago on SmokStak. Do some research on the old postings. It turned out to be very unusual but I don't remember the details.

Just reread this thread from the start and the story is told.

Here is a picture of a fire truck that is in the Rose Parade today. I think it says Crown on the front. I think it has something to do with Fageol trucks. Did anyone catch the year or name of the truck?

I think I am wrong, I don't think the Crown bus or truck has anything to do with Fageol trucks.

Have you saved that poor truck yet? It needs to be gotten somewhere it can be at least looked over in detail and preserved.

No, the guy that owns it says he won't scrap it. It would be nice to be fixed up.
