    Cool Guess who has an ALF?

    None other than Jay Leno, the host of NBC's Tonight Show and certifiably car crazy afficionado of anything on wheels!

    Here is a link to his website's photo gallery...

    You have to love the lines of that era fire engine. A true American classic.

    He drove that to the show one night. Very nice old girl for sure.

    And any old topless engine is cool in my book. A whole different breed of truck and FF.

    Only if they still built them like they were built back then.

    We still have a 77 and it out performs our 2003 model. Hell the newer model has been in the shop more than the 77 ever has.

    The truck was restored by Andy Swift who owns Fire Fly Restorations in Hope Maine. The two of them keep in touch quite a bit.

    Incredible....the City of Burbank actually gave it to him. Originally this truck was the Warner Brothers lot truck. In the 1950s, it was used by the city of Burbank . Then in the 1960s, it sat unused on the runway of Los Angeles International Airport for nearly four decades.
