Just got my First Gear '51 Ward LaFrance from the Perry, Iowa VFD. Wonderful model at a very reasonable price for a First Gear premier ($40 + $11 shipping). The model looks great, replicates all the emergency equipment on the real one, including large twin spotlights with clear plastic lenses and a portable fan. Odd that the truck has a blue dome on the beacon instead of red but I'm sure that's authentic. Thanks to Larry for posting the earlier notice about the availability of the model!
