    Default American LaFrance collection of antiques

    Thought the below note would be of interest to those who may live along the route these vehicles will be traveling.

    Take care, and be SAFE

    The American LaFrance collection of 18 fully restored antiques is coming to town !

    Please come and welcome our antique collection of fire apparatus as it arrives at the new North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center on Sunday, January 14. The museum is located at 4975 Centre Pointe Drive, North Charleston, near the Tanger Outlet Mall.

    The convoy of open flatbeds carrying the collection, many of which are antiques themselves, will leave Cleveland, NC at 7:00 am on Sunday morning and travel south on Interstate 77 through Charlotte, then Interstate 26 east towards Charleston and continuing on Interstate 526 westbound with entry to Centre Pointe via the International Blvd / Interstate 526 corridor.

    The expected arrival time to the museum is approximately 12:30 to 1:30 pm.

    Unhappy ALF Museum
