Excerpts from fox61.com:

John Gasper spent 23 years as a volunteer firefighter and is the owner of Gasper’s Automotive Restoration in Manchester, CT, where he brings old firetrucks back to life for a living. 

“We do everything from an oil change to a full truck restoration,” said Gasper “We preserve fire history, these fire trucks come in as antiques from the 1920s, ’30s, or 40 and they want to get them restored or repaired so we make that happen.”

Open now for seven years, Gasper said he’s getting calls from across the country from private collectors and departments looking to restore their antique firetrucks to their former grandeur. 

John Gasper also has a YouTube Channel and posts videos of some of his firetruck restoration projects on it – to learn more click.
