Nice one! Who built it? When I worked for Travelers Insurance in Roanoke back in the 1980's we insured Grumman, and I got to go through their two plants regularly and see the trucks built from the ground up.

I'm not sure who put it together. Thats over my pay scale. My only regret is that its at the one station I dont work out of very much.

Cool truck. Never have seen a red & black one. Ours are all red. Be nice if all you had to do is play with it, but nice to know it's there to save lives.
