  1. Thanks to the Oldsmar Fla. fire dept. I went down to the fire dept. with another member of our fire truck club and met the onduty Lt. and crew and they let me put my Crown in the bay and on the apron for some pics. Had a great time. Here is a pic on the apron. Frank and one in the bay
  2. Thanks FDNYMACK, that Crown is a sweet rig to drive, nice shifting, pretty good pickup, brakes well. I just have to be careful in turning, it does want to heel over and put alot of weight onto one of the front wheels during a turn. So I just gotta take it easy. Frank
  3. That is a CF from Mohnton, Pa., not sure how long it's been in our club, it pumps great and is fun to see out on the road, it definitely gets the looks !!!
  4. Barry, got some pics from the delivery, and just last Weds when a friend of mine and I took his '72 Mack Cf, and my Crown Squirt out for a little drive and pump check. The Mack and Crown drove and pumped great. The Crown got a nice flushing out, we checked all the valves, and then the ladder and squirt worked great !!!! The Mack you see in the pics is Penna. rig former Mohnton, Pa., nice truck !!!!! Let me know what you think. Frank
  5. Think I could get away with a bulldog just above the front bumper
  6. Well, I tried and tried over the months to look for a Mack but either found something not to my liking, or what I did want, an older squirt or closed cab pumper was just too expensive. I had a backup truck from my days living out in California and that was a Crown Firecoach. And just recently got word from a friend that a telesquirt just came out of service in Carmel, Ca. 50' telequirt, auto trans, diesel, power steering, 1500 gpm pump, and from the exterior shots and the hose, nozzles, ladders are attached, and I also believe there may also be eqpt inside. It was scheduled to be picked up by the hauling company yesterday in Benicia, Ca. where the auction was held and she should be on her way to Tampa to our fire truck club's storage facility on Monday or Tuesday. Here are some pics from the truck at the auction. I will post some more once she gets to her new home ! Frank
  7. Any idea what the disposition was of the old CF? I've been looking to get a 'squirt for a fire truck collector's club I belong to here in the Tampa area and it sounds like that truck might be right up my ( our ) alley. Any information and contacts would be greatly appreciated. Frank Tampa
  8. Hi, my name is Frank Hutton and I belong to a fire truck collectors club here in Tampa called the Dalmingo Society. People who collect, maintain, and operate fire trucks. There are Fords, A Seagrave, Amer Laf's, but my fav's are the Mack's. There are 3 kept inside a garage area which we like to call the "firehouse". One Mack is not kept here, it is a CF series but I am not sure the year, it is green. I will try to locate a pic of that one. But here are some pics for all of you to see. There is a '63 C series Mack, a '72 Mack CF, and another is a '74 Mack closed cab. Some are from in the garage, and 1 is from a pumper run we did in Sept of this year. Enjoy.

  9. I put the message below in the Mack truck stories section, but I think it needs to be in here also. Good to see other Mack fire truck enthusiasts !!!! When I was a jr. fireman in Surf City, NJ during the early 80's the Dept's first line truck was a Mack C series fire truck and it was a monster. Looked great, ran great, you know, it was a Mack. But what was unique about this f-truck and I've never seen it on another Mack fire truck even to this date. Is that this unit was ordered with a front winch system. The bumper was extended to have this winch put on and it really gave this truck a unique look. Years went by, I left the dept. and this Mack got replaced I believe by an MC Mack. I wish I could find out what happened to this Mack C. I just joined a fire collectors club here in Tampa, Fla and if this truck was still in decent condition I would love to add this truck to the collection. BTW, this site is great. Look forward to talking to you all on the board. Frank H. Tampa, Fla.
