1/19/14 Ride of the Week

This weeks ROTW goes to an old 1969 firetruck that was customized and converted into one heck of a beautiful truck.

FTE user ricevilian took this firetruck....

Obviously, your not a fire buff. Did it have a pump and a booster tank
We owned a 55 Peter Pirsch open cab pumper. It had a 1000 gpm pump
and 35 years of history with the Waukesha Fire Dept. It stood tall and proud
whenever it was on the road or display.

I'm not sure who that question is directed at, but why does that matter?

Or was that more rhetorical and you're asking because you're saddened that a truck like that was modded and converted?

I would have restored it as an emergency vehicle fully equipped.
I owned a Peter Pirsch open cab pumper with a 1000 gpm pump, booster tank and all
of the equipment as it was in service. That's a truck with a purpose.
