10/28/09 94 W, 1 I - + 14 - 10 Forest City Engine 1

Reporting from Rutherford County, here's the first motor engine of the Forest City Fire Department. It's a 1928 GMC/Boyer triple combination with a Buick inline, six-cylinder engine, and a Hale Type S, two-stage 500 GPM pump. The apparatus was restored in recent years by Alloy Welding Company in North Wilksboro, NC. Click to enlarge. More pics of this beauty later, which is housed at the Forest City fire station. Nice guys, there. For more pictures of Boyer fire apparatus, check out these discussion forums on youngstownfire.com.

Beautiful truck and the area of the state you are in. The folks in Rutherford and neighboring Cleveland County are a great bunch. I sold several trucks in that area back in the early 1990’s… Sandy Mush, Cleveland, Grover #7, Waco. I’ll have to check your photos out for this trip!
