    I was not impressed with Tony Lukes. I heard that Delasandro's in Roxborough was just sold so I hope that doesn't go downhill now.

    I was in Cobo San Luco last week and the hotel's poolside bar/restaurant had the audacity to have a "Philly Cheesesteak" on their menu. I couldn't get myself to try it. Was in Minneapolis a few years ago and the menu there listed a "Philadelphia Style" Cheesesteak, shaved roast beef on french bread with swiss cheese. (UGH!)

    Ok....I'll let out a little secret here. The BEST cheese steak is NOT in Philadelphia. It's right outside the border, (and I mean RIGHT outside) in Delaware County. LEO'S STEAKS, 1403 Chester Pike, Folcroft, Pa. (ph-610-586-1199)

    When you are IN the city......If you are down at the sports complex for a Phillies Game, a Flyers Game, a concert, whatever......TONY LUKES, about a mile away at 39 East Oregon Ave., Philadelphia PH.-215-551-5725. It's right under Interstate 95.

    In NORTHEAST Philly: STEVE'S PRINCE OF STEAKS, 7200 Bustleton Ave. (1 block south of Cottman) (215) 338-0985

    In the LOWER NORTHEAST: CHINKS STEAKS, 6030 Torresdale Avenue. Philadelphia PA (215) 535-9405

    And, a special mention has to go to Gaetano's Steaks (609) 871-5588 498 Beverly Rancocas Rd, Willingboro, NJ. But shhhhhh dont tell anyone that there is a good steak in Jersey!

    Eat at any of the above (and may I add MORE FOR LESS) and you will throw at those two overpriced tourist traps.

    Whats this "two of you schit?" The day that she who must be obeyed totaled my 1998 Toyota 4-Runner, it had 187,798 miles on it. It did not burn ONE drop of oil in between changes. Let me repeat that- it did not burn, leak, or otherwise discharge one single solitary drop of oil in between the changes. She was well taken care of and repaid me with loyalty. Her suspension was solid, alignment was straight and true, and was a BEAST. I think one of the best times I ever had with her was one of the rare 2 foot "blizzards" that hit the Philly area......TC ask the Chief Engineer how many lawn mowers he has blown up!!!!

    The thing with Kangaroo meat is that you can't cook it thorugh, it nearly had to be hopping to make it taste nice. The meat is also a bit spongy, but I could give it a bash, try and get it thin enough.

    Yes they tried the green peppers, I did not partake, just didn't seem right.

    First page of the brochure:

    The existing booms, platform, superstructure, waterway,
    outriggers and cylinders will be fully disassembled, inspected
    by third party, then overhauled and refinished.
    The electrical system will be updated with our state-of-the art
    aerial controls and NFPA interlocks. New hydraulic system
    including new swivel, pump, tank, all hoses, and reel will be
    installed.
    Our new body structure and torque-tube will be installed on
    a new Marauder II chassis.
    Choice of engines up to 500 HP which is a significant
    improvement over the original Mack power

    Seagrave offers chassis in 6x4 or 4x2 configurations.

    The first part of the brochure, which I believe would be the last page on a folded brochure references rebuilding current Aerialscopes. On the last page it only mention tandem axle weight ratings.

    I'm sure by choice they'd put it on a 'screw for a whole lot of reasons INCLUDING increased PROFIT.New and improved NFPA ELECTRONIC interlocks and controls. Well, there goes the neighborhood.And NO WHERE in the brochure does it say they WON'T build it on a single.I like the new body style. T.C.

    Ok, I guess my eye sight needs adjustment. It seems this would be " feature" they'd want to sell, given so many would be interested. I need to see it featured to believe it, I can see them talking anyone out of actually building one.

    T.C- when's dinner? I'm in E-one country right now! Beats snow and ice any day!

    Post Seagrave Remount Program

    I talked to a fire department here in the New york/New Jersey area, they recieved bids from Seagrave & Pierce for a refurb/re-chassis 75' Aerialscope. Pierce won the bid at $ 715,000 and Seagrave came in at $ 770,000. A new Aerialscope II costs about $ 970,000 plus !

    I have the drawing. I don't know if it's mine to share, but I'll comment on a few highlights.

    It is indeed a single rear axle. It is a 62" MII cab, with an overall vehicle length of 502" Front bumper to the tip of the bucket's monitor. OVH is 10'6", and compartments very reminiscent of Mack / Baker scopes (except with roll-up doors). Front bumper is 22", which I think is necessary for the fold-out front jacks on the tilt-cab.

    Ground ladders are vertical. There does not appear to be a rear transverse compartment (originally for the stokes).

    It's simple and compact. I like the concept, and am in the process of learning more.

    HI hfdchiefone,

    Thanks for the up date on there scope. Do you know how long it is taking Seagrave to build the Scope. Wondering how many months it takes now. When we got our Scope in 1995 I think it took around 18 months or so from Baker. Plus FDNY had just got few before ours with the single big jack in the front bumper.

    The one thing I didn't see in the Hazlet pics where any new Scopes for FDNY got to see there pumpers. I thought Seagrave had started to build the new Scopes for FDNY already.
