  World's Largest Fire Truck?

Worlds Largest Monster Truck?


The sign says it all

From Jalopnik

I wonder how many gallons per mile it gets?


Lock up your arsonists. It's Big Red, possibly the world's longest (38') and heaviest (29,960 lbs) monster truck in the world.

The sign also notes Red is the world's only fully functional monster fire truck, which could prove handy if a blaze ever erupts atop a double row of crushed cars.

It's the product of Monster Truck Rides USA and Liberty-1 Motorsports, which reports the massive rig will depart from New York City on September 11, 2007 for Los Angeles on a cross-country fundraising trip for children's charities.

Are you going to get out the hoses or just run over the fire to put it out?

Ya' know, I'll bet it is!  My father was a member of the Collins Radio communications team for all Apollo missions, and he actually got to ride on that crawler.  Darnit, he wouldn't let me skip school to go ride!!

I want to drive the other truck, the one that's vertical.  One of the world's fastest!  :)

That firetruck is pretty cool.  It looks like they need a pretty big ladder just to get in and out of the thing.  I wonder if those massive tires would melt if they got too close to a blaze. ;)
