What is the Oldest Fire Apparatus You Have In Service In Your Department?

In the department I belong, we have a 29 year old American LaFrance Ladder Truck. You would never know that by looking at it, and it is still in great machanical shape as well.

We have an American La France 1924 pumper. It was our first "horseless" pumper. Our oldest reserve is a 1990 E-One Cyclone. Most of our front line apparatus is 3 to 4 years old or newer.
Hey Jeff, Thank you for responding to the discussion. and for
the picture of your KME. Looks good. Thanks.stay safe Brother.
Hey Cody, Thanks for responding to the discussion, do you have
any pictures of the American LaFrance, I would like to see it.
1982 Seagrave rear-mount aerial. It still looks good, although it is a workhorse. It is the first piece to roll on mutual aid calls.

This is the wife and I on the 1924 on our wedding day.
1976 Mack with Manual Transmission
Hey Cody, How cool is that, very, very nice. Thank you for sharing
that with us. You be safe out there Brother.
Hey Becky, Thanks for responding to the discussion,
Do you have any pictures of your Seagrave to share ??
Down Here our oldest is a 1985 Ward '79 Limited 3500 Gallon Tank 750 GPM Hale Two Stage Pump on a 6x6 Chassis.

My Dads department back home has a 1924 Ahrens Fox (First truck i ever learned to pump), a 1931 Segrave Quad and a I believe 1890 Horse Drawn Steam Engine( I could be wrong on the date)... None of these are in service anymore but they are still operational and are also housed at 2 of the cities fire houses.
Hey Dewayne & Dianna, Thank you for responding to the discussion.
Do you have any pictures of your 1976 Mack, As you may know, that
was the bicentennial year.
PS: Thank you for the invite to your friends list.
Hey Mike, First off, thank you for responding to the discussion.
Second, Do you have any pictures of some of those trucks that

I was with, what a truck. Thanks again Brother.
