My fire company recently purchased back a 1955 (some say 56) B85 Mack 707 Thermodyne Ladder Truck (seen in my avatar). A lot of pics are located on my website at: http://www.vinniemiller.com/ladder2.htm.

It is currently all orgional except for the beacon which we have and need to repair. It is only on the first steps of restoration, but it is far from not running. She may not look great now, but I know all of us think she is just gorgeous. Enjoy the pics. I will update from time to time when I get more pics as repairs/restoratoin go on. I am also a new member thanks to Firemack!

Very Nice!  Looks like you got a good truck to start with!  Welcome to the forums!

Thanks on both! I just got the rebuilt starter back today. I am hoping to get it back in this weekend so that I can move her around more easily. I have a long list of items to work on before we work on getting her totally repainted, but she is a blast to drive still. I just need to start working on all the systems on it to assure it will be safe to take places. I will continue to post as I do the work and keep up on the pics where I can. Thanks again for the "welcome"!

She's magic mate, absolutely magic! One of these days I hope to own a fire truck, hopefully it's a Mack. Don't have too much fun with her, you'll make us all jealous!

Too late!!!!

Whatever rubs your buddah.

I have had her out and about quite a lot. Some little bit of work done to the body courtesy a local detailer. More pics are up on the site. Have to get her out on a good sunny day. Also setting up a site to rasie money to put into her.
