Not exactly a true truck shot but it's the only shot I took today lol.

Friday 4-19-19

The shop in the back is Fairfax County's South Apparatus shop, they had all the reserves pulled out today for some reason. I work occasionally next door at DVS' Newington.

I'm not saying a fire truck is lesser than a real truck, just saying it doesn't get the same standing here as it does elsewhere. There's a legion of fire apparatus photographers the world over, that I've met online, and in real life, and the dedication they put in to keeping up with all the apparatus is insane compared to what we do here. They can tell you the specs on pieces of apparatus from 20 years ago, and as someone who works on 100 different fire trucks where only 20~ or so are spec'd the same I find it mind-boggling how much attention to detail they have. 'Round here all we have is the fire thread, and that's Dave's domain. PS Dave if you read this I still appreciate your dedication to keeping the fire thread alive. :D

Sharp LT Ford, is that on the farm? You have quite a stash on the farm, 72 Gran Torino?

Thanks Jim, yep, the Ford's stored on the farm. The Gran Torino is a '73, and is in decent cosmetic condition, but I have no idea about the mechanical condition.  ::) ;D
