    I know that we can't seem to have a meeting of Studebaker folks without food around, but I never knew they consumed this much fried chicken!

    Great old Firetruck. Another picture that just starts the day off right. Thanks.

            There's something you don't see every day. I mean the fried chicken bucket.
            Actually, it's a neat fire truck. Thanks.

              I live in Hanover Township in Beaver County PA near Raccoon Creek State Park. When I moved here in 1976 the local VFD had an M series truck like the one pictured that was still in service. When the water tank eventually failed they removed it and after installing lights on it used it for portable lighting at fires in this rural area. It was also used for many years as a parade truck.

              They still have it in the basement of the fire station, but the engine is stuck. It overheated and seized. Not enough discretionary funds to fix it -- too many other needs. I've often wondered if grant money could be obtained and a cooperative venture with local Studebaker clubs to get it back on the road.

                John, you get some steam built up with your idea and I'll contribute a set of rings to get it running again. Maybe others would chip in to provide parts for it as well.[^]

                          this looks like the truck Tom Karkowicz had for many years and then sold a short wile back, it was at the fairgrounds last year in May for the swap meet show in South Bend, New owners are a father and son from the area, if I remember correctly they were firemen and use this truck for pleasure and parades, I just referenced my South Bend pics it is the same truck the gentlemen told me his son made the wooden ladder for it, neat truck
