Found for sale on eBay are these vintage color slide images. Top to bottom, left to right are a 1987 1983 Chevrolet/E-One pumper tanker (Parkwood), a 1982 Kenworth/E-One telesqurt (Parkwood), a 1974 Chevrolet/American LaFrance pumper (Altamahaw-Ossipee), and a 1972 Ford/Atlas tanker (Bunn). Click once or twice to enlarge:

For Parkwood that is actually a tanker, which was a 1983 model – not 1987. Not sure why it was labelled engine on the hood, guess that’s just what they did. P-22 was a tanker, noted by the narrow pump panel. Also, the highside doors are barn door configuration as that is where the drop tank was. Typically, Chief Rudisill and others like to have those door as lift doors for better access and a dry place to stand when it rained! There was a closely matched Engine which was P-21 which is still in service. Both were at the Farrington Rd. Station behind the Five Oaks community off Old Chapel Hill Rd. When I started there they also had a type 2 ambulance there – Medic 2.
