Wanted: Photos of Western Mack fire dozer transport tractors (1-22-18)

I’m looking for photos and/or whereabouts of Western Mack fire dozer transport semi tractors from the late 60s through the 70s. In particular, I’d like to find photos of Mack RS700Ls (or similar), Mack FS700L coes (or similar) and Superliners. These models were popular in the Los Angeles County area and perhaps also in other western states. Hope to learn if any of these older Mack tractors still exist. I know at least one was retired and sold only about 10 years ago. Does anyone know where these trucks ended up? See photo for an example of what I’m looking for.  Email

Looking for Info on Truck We Purchased (9-19-17)

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.

Nott Steam Engine Paint Schemes (4-12-17)

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
