The truck was originally in service in Menominee, MI and was restored by my father, Don Herson and Paul Bromund, in the mid 1980’s. It had VOGUE FIRE DEPT on the hood. This truck was auctioned off in 2013 and resold and not sure where it is now. I would like to share the history of this truck with whomever is in possession of it now. Please contact either Valerie Herson at 847-514-3314 or Paul Bromund at 847-513-4862.

A buddy and I just purchased this fire truck. It’s a 1967 General Fire Apparatus on an International Harvester with a Cincinnati cab. It’s Marked as Carmody Engine one but we believe it is from The City of Crystal Minnesota Engine #6. We are looking for any information about the truck but mostly interested in on the ramp or in service photos as we plan to restore it to original.
The Napa, Ca. firefighters are working on restoring our 1904 Nott steam fire engine. A local auto body shop, Lito Auto body has offered to assist us in painting the engine, but we have very few images of the steamer in it’s original paint scheme and they are not detailed enough to show the trim design. Does anyone have pictures or prints showing typical Nott paint designs clearly or pictures of restored Nott steamers? Any help would be appreciated. Please contact me at email

Hello – I’m looking for information on my Barton fire Pump. On the name plate, it says size 2 1/2 inch-B 1 A and the shop number is C1909 3 and on the casting it says T 30. I’m also trying to mount the pump to my 1925 Ford Model TT, but I need info on how to mount the pump and make a shaft from the pump to the crank of the motor. I’m also looking for a basket that a booster hose would have been rolled up into on top of a hose bed or chemical tank. Thanks Brian DeBosschere email or phone 630 834 4156Wanted Category: Information.
