Meriden, CT Firefest

Postby chariots of fire on Sat Jul 22, 2017 7:59 pm

Got back from Meriden, CT about 2 hrs. ago. Had a great time, thanks to Mike Quinn setting up the show for vendors and some full size apparatus for a photo shoot. My favorites were a restored 1954 Ward LaFrance and a Squad 51 replica for the Lost Angels Fire Department. Yes you are reading that right! Will post some pics soon!

The Squad is only a replica. They could not letter it for LA County. Note that it says 'LOST ANGELS" Fire Department.
