University Park Fire Department history

This from Mike Summa for #TBT:

For TBT – This was the University Park Fire Dept.’s Engine 73, a 1980 Hendrickson/FMC 1500/500. This is a very old picture, the color does not show the yellow paint scheme very well.  The engine is also lettered Park Forest South before the name change.

20th Annual Chicagoland Emergency Vehicle Show (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in on Saturday. Mainly police cars but a few rigs, some new to the show. The organizers put a lot of work into setting this up each year but the current venue in downtown Oswego makes quality vehicle photos pretty much impossible to get due to some very tight space limitations … that being said I managed to get a few mediocre shots. all are posted here
