1926 American La France























July 13, 2012"If Prometheus was worthy of the wrath of heaven for kindling the first fire upon earth, how ought all the gods honor the men who make it their professional business to put it out?" ~John Godfrey Saxe

This is an amazing and beautiful 1926 American La France fire truck fully restored, and owned by the city of Waxahachie, Texas since it was new. It is amazing and beautiful, and a real tribute to the men and women who fight fires for a living, we all owe them a great debt of gratitude.The local Firefighters brought this to the recent Cars in the Park car show and were offering children's photos in the seat for $5. The entire amount collected was donated to our charity recipient of the car show, the charity for this show was Campfire Creek Therapeutic Riding of Waxahachie. Campfire Creek provides therapy for adults and children with disabilities and it has achieved some truly stunning results. Our car club does a number of car shows each year, and we focus on children's charities around our immediate area. We were fortunate enough to raise a good deal of money for the Campfire Creek cause. Have a blessed and rewarding day today my friends!Linda
