On my way to the the Le Mans races at COTA last week, I passed a wrecking yard, Special Truck and Auto Salvage, on FM 812, found a few good ones including this 1953 B-Series Dodge pickup, last of its series that ran from 1948. Considered very advanced for the time.
This fire truck has spent a lot of time at this garage at S. 1st and Live Oak. The versatile mechanics there are working to get the V-12 running. American LaFrance was an old American fire apparatus manufacturing company that folded last year. This one, marked “Foamite”, was built in Canada in the 1950s but it is a party truck — see the beer taps at the left side just forward of the back wheels.
