    It should definitely be painted red, and all three designs are lame.

    Default It's great to know there are so many open minds here

    Yes, this is "for real". I got a big laugh out of everyones comments. Just keep in mind that over 120 companies have sponsored over $40K worth of products and services to help build this truck. So it's about as real as it gets

    Oh, and not every fire truck has to be red

    Thanks to those of you who voted and also for those of you that signed up to get a shirt or two when they're done.

    Smile On Second Thought.......................

    My first impulse was to ask if I could vote for "None of the above" but I looked again at the whole thing, not just the shirts. This would appear to be a legitimate question, from a legitimate business, one that deals in warning devices, and vehicle modification. No, I don't want a free "wackermobile" catalog, but if you folks build Pickups, SUVs, etc. into command units for Chiefs, there is a good reason for equipping a rolling demo mobile. And, those who know me will attest, there ARE other colors for Fire/Rescue vehicles. (Like Black over Chrome Yellow)

    Default Thanks for the last comment

    The goal of this project is to develop the concept into a business of customizing emergency vehicles. So far, it seems to be viable opportunity, but we won't know for sure until the truck gets out on the show circuit where we can gauge real interest. The responses so far have been overwhelmingly positive.

    The shirts are part of the overall marketing of the vehicle and the concept. The more we can do to get people to our website and to come out and see the truck, the greater chance we have of taking this concept and turning it into a thriving business.

    I really do appreciate all of the comments thus far. Some have been downright funny and we really do appreciate all of the support we've recieved.

    btw, design #3 seems to be the winner so far.

    Fire trucks = red

    hey chris, i forget, what color are many of the syracuse fire trucks? and what color were most of them when you were in pre-K?
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    Many of the City of Syracuse trucks are red. You've been gone long enough that very few are still yellow. And yes, while I was in Pre-K, all of their appartus was yellow. After seeing how it's done in volly land, they finally jumped on the bandwagon and now purchase everything in red!
