Fire Truck Toys for Men and Boys (Catalogue of Toy Fire Apparatus)

Catalogue-of-Toy-Fire-Apparatus-227x300Every young man has a period in life when he wants to be a firefighter. Normally, it strikes his fancy in the early years when is is greatly impressed with the clamor and excitement associated with a fire apparatus clanging and the banging its way down the street. Sometimes it strikes in his early teens when his budding knowledge of mechanical things makes fire apparatus a marvelous wonder to behold. The chrome and steel and the power of fire equipment is intoxicating and exciting. Some of us just never get too old to enjoy fire trucks.
