It's a great looking Corvette, but the baby stroller is "best in class."

10 Little Corvettes All in a Row
The first one is a ZR1 with a sticker price of $143,000. That's not a lot for 755 hp.

The Taylor Fire Department and the 1916 American LaFrance Ladder Truck Restoration Project.

The Taylor Fire Department has one of the most colorful histories in Williamson County. Some form of firefighting equipment and personnel has existed since the city was established in 1876. The first fire truck was a wooden fire wagon which was pulled by a trained fire horse named "Dan." The Taylor Fire Department founded in 1887 was then operated by 6 volunteer fire companies with over 100 volunteer firefighters. The first company, Hook and Ladder Company No. 1, was established in 1887 followed by the City Hose Company No. 2. Then in 1899, the F. W. Adams Hose Company No. 3 was established. In 1907, the Hugh Burns Hose Company No. 4 was established followed by the C.M. Hose Company No. 5 in 1913.

In 1914, Taylor made "the big change" and acquired the first horseless fire wagon built from a Moon motor car. In 1916, the Volunteers realized the need for a more modern fire apparatus and in that year, purchased the American LaFrance Ladder Truck. The truck, a 3-speed manual transmission with reverse and equipped with a hand-operated parking brake and electric starter made responding to emergencies much more efficient and safer with the addition of the hand-operated siren. The ladder truck is equipped with 221 feet of wooden ladders and a 150-gallon soda acid fire extinguishing system, various hand tools, portable fire extinguishers, and a front center-mounted search light.

The 1916 American LaFrance Ladder Truck will be restored to its original condition strictly by generous donations.

Since the suspension system in the "car" stroller was a little too stiff,
that couple switched it out for a softer ride.

The wood dash is a nice touch.

I think there is a better balance for wheels.
