This from Mike Summa:

Here is a picture of Oak Lawn Truck 12, a 1970’s rear mount aerial.  This was built by American Fire Apparatus of Battle Creek, Michigan. I believe this was built on a low-profile Oshkosh chassis.  Enjoy and comment.

Hello,
This is a 1978 Mack 1250/500.  Very plain by today’s standards.  Correct me if I’m wrong on any of the specs.  Enjoy!
Thank you,

This from Mike Summa:

Hello,
Here is a photo of an early Oak Lawn truck.  Again, I’m sorry that I have no specs on it.  I know that it’s on a Pierce Arrow chassis.  If anybody knows anything more about it, please feel free to advise.  Thank you, hope you enjoy.

This from Mike Summa:

Hello there,
I took my family to a fire show in the early 1990s in Chicago Ridge.  I snapped this picture of Oak Lawn’s then-new Ward LaFrance engine, turned into a squad truck.  Thought that I’d like to share.
Thank you,
Mike S.
