In one day, in the same group we welcomed 3 car clubs to the Museum on Saturday June 16th during our regular open house. From Wyoming, Brighton and Fort Collins, we were pleased to provide a stop, restroom facility, and tour of the Museum for about 50-60 guests (and their beautiful automobiles from the teens to the 70's).
Director Klink led the tour, and related some of his better stories about how he fell into this adventure- of fire trucks and restoration.
We wrapped up their 90 minute visit by starting up the Sandusky Ahrens Fox. A deep rumble of pistons and blow of the siren called the tour to a close.
Demonstrating how fast the tillerman could jump free and set up the back end to raise the aerial. The windshield swings away to the side, the seat lifts and flips over the side of the ladder and the steering column pulls straight up and out of the way.
The Beverly Hills front bumper is a great podium to spread Fire Engine stories, and explain how the Museum came to be.
