    That's majorly cool. Is that figure supposed to be a normal sized human? If so, that's a huge vehicle.

    Wow I'm surprised that so many cool American fire engines ended up in Germany. It's too bad there wasn't more of a history for each of them. The Ahrens-Fox the most surprising because so few are known to exist today. Thanks for sharing!

    I've actually ridden in one of those. Wisconsin Dells has a company that gives rides in the "Ducks". Very cool.
    There's no apology for stupid, boy!

    Anytime.

    I think some of these American firetrucks ended up in Germany because the museum either imported them or bought them from the US Army in Germany, which probably had their own US-spec firetrucks here.
