Lake Brickmont Engine 829 is a 1988 Ford C with E-One Bodywork. This rig is used mainly as a reserve rig, as well as for training.
This truck started out as the Ford Squrt that I had made for Cheyenne Valley. I made some changes to it and was in the process of trying out a Snorkel idea for it just for the heck of it when I was informed that the entire fleet of Brickville Fire (Christian C.) was destroyed. I immediately stopped the snorkel project and converted it into this. It was sent off to him today, on loan, until the department is back on it's feet.
The bad news...
How it looked when I stopped.
The almost finished product. I felt the cab was too high compared to my other trucks, and lowered it and the pump by one plate. (Real Ford C's are smaller compared to today's modern rigs.)
When I heard that from CC, all I played in my head was.... People be careful bit of story coming along... *CC's girl friend who we will call CC's girlfriend, walks in the room with a base ball bat, CC himself who we will call CC, is in the kitchen because, I mean who isn't hungry most of time? CC's girl friend mutters... "got me a $200 gift because he spent the rest on you little trucks? a heck no!" CC who is probably eating that one thing his mom say's "Christian I put some left overs in the fridge, just dont pick that pulled pork BBQ, its for your brother" eats away. CC's girl friend then takes aim, smash kaboom, smash, boomkaboom. CC who hears the noise rushes to the fridge for one last bite, before investigating the sounds. CC's girl friend counted on her boy friend(CC) to take an extra bite and tosses the bat out the window, places her self over the damaged trucks and puts the, "I wuve u!" face. CC walks in, and is like, no!!! then goes back to the fridge, gets some more meat, maybe a drink and returns to see that it really isn't his hunger playing tricks on him. He then turns to his girl friend fall for "wuve" face and slowly starts putting his trucks back together. Then... you guessed it, eats, all the pulled pork BBQ from the fridge.
Oh, if you actually took the time to read all that, then you rule, and demand for a like button around MOCpages comments, because you know this deserves it!
In loving memory, Brickville FR...
