Firefighters of a certain era …

Open cab Seagraves with a Jake Brake


Uploaded by roof15top on Sep 20, 2010

Creuising in the Seagrave. Detroit with a kickass Jake – what's not to love?

Let's go rattle some windows and scare little kids!

When I got on the job, these were righteous.

    Looks like the driver kinda fudged the stop sign at 1:30, and again at 2:03. Not even close to a legal stop at 2:31. At the end at 3:28, it looked like he was nudging the car ahead.
    If any of our guys fudged stops like that, we’d be having a little meet-n-greet with the officers… and it wouldn’t be for cake and ice cream.

    The good old days when you saw a fire truck and knew who made it. Today they all look the same and have no character

      And most of them had their own “sound.”
