Antique Fire Engine

This 1944 Ford American LaFrance was originally purchased in 1944 after a fire in Loganville Borough had destroyed three houses and businesses. The new fire engine replaced a 1924 Brockway four-tank chemical fire engine. In 1963 this engine was sold to a Gettyburg amusement for $1,000. Fantasy Land used the fire engine as a kiddies' ride. In 1980 the park closed and the fire engine was sold to an Ohio company. The fire engine layed in a field in Ohio rusting until an Ohio antique vehicle restorer gave it new life. After contacting the fire engine's manufacturer he then contacted the Loganville Fire Company.
