We're getting ready for the Pistons and Pumpers Antique Truck and Fire Truck Show on Saturday, October 10th, in our lower level parking lot. It will be a fantastic show, hosted by the Gateway Fire Historical Society and the local region of the Antique Truck Historical Society, and will feature antique fire pumpers pumping for our lake. We will be hosting a special exhibit in our Earl C. Lindburg Automobile Center featuring fire trucks and antique trucks.
Earlier today, we brought the 1977 Seagrave hook and ladder truck on loan to the Museum from the City of St. Louis Fire Department. After several years in storage, we put a new battery in it, and it fired up immediately. Listen to it purr and watch the lights run in this video.
