From Mike:

       I see your looking for pictures of Big Bolts working for a 2007 calendar. Does a Fire Truck count? John Vannatta, Garry Callis, Eddie Guy and myself all went to the Westminster Fire Truck Muster earlier this month and we pumped my truck. I was grinning from ear to ear! We had a great time!

       See the BIG VIEW of the fire trucks in action. Here's Mike's and here's the ATHS Baltimore-Washington gang. ~~ Editor

       Then I made the news paper this week!  A friend sent this to me but didn't name the paper it was from. I think it was the local Carroll County (Maryland) paper.

Mike has some good Task Force identification information on his web site, Mike's Garage.

From Mike:

       I thought you all would like to see the latest picture of my 1957 Chevrolet Fire Engine after a 1-1/2 year restoration. I just had it lettered and now only have a few minor things to complete. Yeah!

From: Mike,

       Here is a picture of my fire engine. It is a '57 Chevrolet 10500 Series with a John Bean 500 GPM main pump and a 850 psi fog pump. It is powered by a 322 Buick V8 with a 5 speed transmission and a 2 speed rear. It has 13,800 original miles.

       The original owner gave this truck the nickname "Hurdy-Gurty."
