From Mike Levy comes this picture of the New Hyde Park (NY) Fire Department Termites Drill Team's class 'c' hose wagon. Yes, it's a fire truck! It has a custom tube chassis and is powered by a 430 ci BB Chevy and is used, along with a larger class 'b' pumper, in competitions consisting of 8 events, 2 of which include the 'c' truck. Some might remember seeing them on ABC's Wide World Of Sports many years ago. For more info go to WWW.FDRACING.COM where you'll find links to teams, pictures, videos and much more about this 'sport.'
