Antique Fire Engines
Hi! I've seen several posts where folks were looking for a starting point for information, parts wanted, etc. on antique fire apparatus. The 2 sites that you should look at first are the official SPAAMFAA (Society for the Preservation And Appreciation of Antique Fire Apparatus in America) and the Unofficial SPAAMFAA web site.
Both of these sites have wanted and for sale ad areas and are regularly updated. There are also listings of antique fire apparatus musters and fire flea markets across the U.S.
Another good site to check into is the Fire Museum Network. They have a very nice bulletin board for posting questions. Their BB is a good place to find answers about old, weird fire related topics.
To visit any of these terrific sites, use the URL's shown below!
Thought these might be of interest......

The Mad Max Bingo Hall can be reached by exiting at Hopple Street (exit 3) from I-75. At the end of the ramp, turn left and go 1 block (there is a White Castle on the corner). Turn right, you are now on Central Parkway, and head down about 1 1/2 miles. Mad Max is on the left (newer looking brick front building).
