2 Fire Trucks to Ireland

Please read below from the Importer

"I happened to cross the 1967 Mack pumper while browsing the net. It was on auction and I really liked the look of it. I placed a bid not really expecting anything to come of it and was very surprised and excited upon winning the bid but with absolutely no idea on how to ship the truck. Thank God for Joe and Hill Shipping!

Since getting the Mack I found myself searching through American vintage fire engines and a year later came across the 1970 Hahn. I've become a real enthusiast on all things fire engines and my next endeavour is a ladder truck. (Don't tell the family though I'll be in big trouble..... 😉)

The trucks are a hobby really, to bring to shows but have been used for demonstrations in Dublin Fire Brigade and for many Charity Events. I also drove my youngest son to his wedding last July in the Mack which was great fun.

I'm throughly looking forward to the American car show in Kilbeggan the end of April, both trucks will be there and it's always a great day out."
