The great Walt McCall has a notable new book, the Illustrated Encyclopedia of American Fire Engine Manufacturers. It's big and pricey. Hardbound, 304 pages, 1270 photos, 100 smackers. Click above to read more, and/or order direct from publisher. FSP Books is also stocking same, as are likely other specialty retailers. Will it be released in less-expense softcover, some day/some year? Unknown, but this blogger would bet dollars to donuts on it. McCall is the author of American Fire Engines Since 1900, the "bible of fire apparatus" published in 1976. That one built many a buff.

Looking at the cover, the 1958 GM/American caught my eye. Same paint scheme used on the Western Blvd/Fairgrounds 1957 Chev/AMerican and the Six Forks Rd 1956 Ford/American.
