    But in the year 2007, cooler heads prevailed.......Our original red was demanded by the masses (by the way, the color began with the 1948 Ward Lafrance above....When the 1958 FWD was ordered, a paint sample was taken, and it was determined to be "1956 Chrysler Tango Red") By company vote, I present, the 2007 Toyne/Spartan ala "1956 Chrysler Tango Red."

    PS: (allow me to brag for a moment ) The 1958 F.W.D. pictured above as it appears today (which, by the way, is parked out in my garage. ) It was sold to another company in 1978 when the "period of darkness" began with the 78 Hahn. The company that bought it had another truck already that was this "ALF Maroon" kind of a color........

    God as my witness, it WILL return to the '56 Chrysler Tango Red before I die!!!!!!!!!!And NO Harve, it aint getting painted yellow!

    FWDBuff.......Beautiful rigs (except the yellow one )!

    When did fire trucks stop becoming so pretty looking? I loved the old ALF Centurys, and older Hahns and Seagraves. They certainly don't make em like they used to.

    On the subject of color, ask any kid what color a fire truck is.....they will have only one answer!

    Imagine how heart broken I feel when my kids ask me what color fire trucks I drive, and I have to tell them white! The only thing worse was when I had to tell them black and gray!
