I like Winsor Fire Department's low budget bed. Most fire depts. would have to spend at least $100000 on a simple bed.

Continuing the totally off topic remarks...............

I revisited a Lithuanian site I had not looked at for a few years and decided to look in their photo files.
Found dozens of pre WWII US and European cars still in use after the end of the war. I am only on page 6 of some 60 pages so hope to get a lot of good photos.
Tons of truck photos also, mostly Russian from the immediate post WWII era as well as a lot of Russian passenger cars.

You can access the main site based on the watermark information if you wish.

Sadly not, Mr. T.

I have a few hundred images of vehicles from Poland, Romania, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and so on that I never see on the current sites dealing
with restored WWII vehicles or collectible vehicles in general.  Tons of US/British/German and even Italian vehicles but virtually nothing from
The Eastern European countries.  Even the civilian passenger vehicles of these countries plus US and other European brands that I have in my photo files from the pre war era from this area are rarely seen as collector cars today.

Not to get political, but I have always attributed this to the takeover of that region by the then Soviet Union and their "State Ownership"
of all vehicles.  The State owned them, they used them up and they scrapped them.  You may have noted that it is pretty rare to see
restored/restorable Russian vehicles from that era today as well.

Bill,

I think you're spot on. What was not destroyed when the Germans invaded was taken over by the Wehrmacht who had a chronic shortage of vehicles (see here: http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepage_english/Motor_Vehicles/USA/usa.html . Very few vehicles were left with their original owners (fire fighting vehicles were among those, as even the Germans needed to allow occupied towns to have some fire fighting capabilities), some (very very few) were retrieved after VE day but - particularly in East Europe - they were indeed used until they could no longer be repaired and then scrapped... There is however restoration in Russia now, belatedly they woken up to the significance of their history.

Cheers,

T
