I am Truck Officer on a 1987 LTI 75' straight stick rear mount with a prepiped water way. She's old but still truckin' and we love every bit of her. We know her reverse lights don't work and her speedometer reads that she is going 35 mph at all times even when parked or in reverse. We know that her left turn signal sticks in the on the position sometimes and that when you use her air horn, it bleeds off the brakes. We know these and even more of her problems, but we love her anyway and we are honored that we are allowed to be a part of her history. We are scheduled to get a new piece with the next grant, but whether or not that happens or not...we are still happy to be her escort to each and every dance.

Hey Brother Irish Truckie, I have to agree with you, We do, do it better.
I went from driving a 100' Tiller truck up in NY, to driving a 50" Squirt

I just love how the engine companies think there is no need for a truck company. But when it comes to the dirty work of overhaul who's the first ones they look for. I'm no longer a member and past captain of a vol truck company in NY. Would never have belonged to another company.
