Mack-Pierce, 1972 Mack CF-600 after Pierce Refurb. Not sure the exact (circa mid 1990's) year the truck was refurbed but it was still complete Mack Chassis and Running Gear.

Great truck and I remember it fondly.

I recently attended the annual fire apparatus festival at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC (June 22nd).  Just under 100 apparatus were on hand, including five Macks.

It has been a while since my last post here, but that is because I have not photographed any more Mack fire apparatus.  This past Saturday, I photographed two Mack pumpers.  The first one was the first Mack MC chassis equipped with the 285 horsepower Mack diesel.  At 41 years old, it is still in front line service in this rural Georgia county, but there is talk of replacing it, due to it having a standard transmission and only a couple members are able to operate it.
