I wonder if the ladder is still functional? Old fire trucks just go begging for buyers. We recently sold our 1985 Pierce for $3500. The 1992 E-One went for the minimum bid of $2000 and was just scrapped.

100 ft ladder would be great for cutting tree branches. But where on earth would you park the thing when not in use...

I think it retracts and stores on top of the fire engine, doesn't it? :mrgreen:

Don't get me thinking how to justify the purchase of one! Indeed the challenge would be storing the vehicle.

You could be a food truck for apartment buildings. Hot and fresh to your balcony or window! :bounce

My office used to be a house of someone in the local fire department. He had an old firetruck and added a garage to house it.
