General Discussion / Re: NYC Dept. of Buildings, Emergency Vehicle
« Last post by raybrag on Today at 10:45:45 AM »
My daughter worked as an investigator for the federal Office of Personnel Management for several years.  These were the folks who conducted background investigations for people who were applying for security clearances . . . certainly not anything involving emergencies.  Point is she was issued a government Crown Vic with the complete police package . . . interceptor engine, and a whole host of emergency lighting controlled from a switch in the ash tray.  Oh . . . did I mention the siren?  Damn thing lit up like a Christmas tree when you hit the switch.  That's the kind of thing your government does.  Instills confidence, doesn't it?

Vintage San Fransisco lid with distinguished markings of a truck company firefighter. This color combo remained as a tradition.

 "heck, maybe Willy could use one in his garden"  :)

 Dan, maybe not in the garden, BUT the "Buff Mobile" sure needs a good hosing down.

I remember seeing Colonial concrete mixers in Queens when they'd show up at sewer construction projects that my father was the city inspector for.  This was the early to mid 50's, and Colonial was still running chain drive Mack AC concrete mixers.

Below is a lid design that could be considered part of a "summer uniform", perhaps a lid for tropic firefighters or even stylish for Amish firefighters...heck, maybe Willy could use one in his garden...check it out...







Highly Recommended!

Indeed. Colonial was across the street by the Flushing river and you could always see barges loaded with gravel, etc. tied up there. If you recall the Whitestone Parkway (now Whitestone Expwy.) bridge right there was a draw bridge as was the Northern Blvd. bridge just down the road.

I remember passing it as a kid several times. I think I actually ate there when I worked as an asphalt plant inspector for a couple of weeks at Colonial Sand and Stone which was nearby.  They were supplying the State DOT asphalt for the Buckner interchange project st the Hutchinson River Pkwy in the Bronx - right over the Whitestone Bridge when the car toll was a quarter
