Parked for the occasion of a retirement party at Station 18 yesterday is a 1982 Mack CF pumper, the last of 15 closed-cab beauties that were first delivered in 1970. Has it really been 40 years since? The other engine is a 2000 Quality/Spartan MetroStar, one of eight delivered between 1999 and 2002. Or should that be listed as Spartan/Quality? See more photos from yesterday, and congrats Capt. Bailey. See you on the other side! Click to enlarge:

You know, those Macks (and the ALFs) had character. Something the new ones, well, don’t. I would, however, like to seet hem take that silly light bar off of the Mack and put one fo the old Federal 184 beacons on it.
