    Last week we made the floor form wood sheets.
    And fixed the steering column support in the dashboard.
    These will be the last works until the end of the coronavírus pandemia.
    I’ll be isolated in my home as well as my mechanic.
    I hope all my H.A.M.B. friends stay well during this crisis and soon can go back to your family and machines.

    Yes sir, same thing! You are from Elmira, New York! Home of the AMERICAN LaFrances Fire engines! I attended a school there, in 1979. At a volunteer fire dept ,where they held the Factory school, they had a keg of beer available to fire fighters! After touring the factory we took a lunch break and went to a burger joint right across from the ALF factory and had lunch! I watched ALF factory workers swig down 3 or 4 beers during lunch!
    I then understood why ALF trucks were a piece of shit! Now don’t get me wrong, as long as Muskogee had ALF trucks..... I had a job!
    The odd thing about that trip was , here in Oklahoma, we bought four trucks made ... in the Elmira , New York. At the fire satiation in Elmira, New York, they had a Boardman ladder truck made in Oklahoma! What up with that?

    I stare at this pic and can’t help but wonder if there is still a way to force charge some air into those two carb inlets.

    I love this big monster it’s like a Mighty Piraiba! Or maybe Arapaima?
