Your favourite 'weird' vehicles, some real, some "photoshops"

Seeing the LTI on the side of the pump housing makes me think it may have some sort of snorkel or boom hidden away uptop as well

That just makes it all the better. Now I have to have this! I wonder if they'll ever put it up for auction once it's out of service? They'd probably take all the cool stuff off. I totally dig the AeroDynic Model 22 at the front. It's like icing on the cake.
 
I believe it is already out of service, and in the hands of a private collector. there are photos of it in water, with just "City Of" on the bow

Edit:

Those guys look a little out of uniform...

I also question what the one guy's drinking. It may appear to be water, but it could be the old vodka in the water bottle trick. Once saw a guy try that one at his sentencing hearing for impaired driving causing bodily harm as well as a few other charges. Showed up wasted and tried to bring the bottle into the courtroom three times. Judge said if he tried again, he'd be facing more charges. Ended up getting a nice stay in our old county jail. That place was an absolute hellhole. No water bottles allowed there. He even tried to get his "water" bottle again before he was taken into custody! The bailiffs were not amused. Ended up with a couple of extra charges and more time lol! The bailiffs were amused. We all were. He must have been badly dehydrated! Turned out to be gin. Might explain why the courtroom smelled like an evergreen forest.

Also, the other guy is showing BLATANT disrespect for that Aero 22!! Can't tell if it's a 22H or 22I, but Disrespect of an AeroDynic is a criminal offense. These pinheads are completely undeserving of such a wonderful craft!

It's our duty as eLB members to pool our funds and rescue this gem before these idiots disrespect it even more. I bet that they use the lights and sirens for parties, too. I swear, if there's a Q on that, I think that we'll all be more than a little miffed. If there is, these cementheads probably use it to announce tequila shots.

I mean...not that pulling up on a beach for an unplanned beach party would be a bad thing...but these 2 look like they are 1 DUI away from an lengthy stay in a state facility..
 
Throw in the fact that they're not wearing life jackets, too. Maybe they think that because they're on a decommissioned fire boat-truck that they're immune to drowning. These two clowns look like they'd believe that type of thing.

The one guy leaning on that Aero 22 still really gets under my skin. It's not a bloody armrest!

So I blowed up the pic and it appears the guy isn't leaning on the bar.... He's rubbing it....

It all depends how. If it's in admiration of the bar, that's a bit odd, but fine. If that's the case, then he's probably an eLB member. If it's in any other way, not fine. The dude looks like he's rubbing the bar like he's trying to get women's attention. Dude looks like he's a David Faustino impersonator trying to play Bud Bundy.

Correction: the only David Faustino impersonator.

Thats the WW2 type DUKW trucks, developed in 1942-43
The LARC-V came about in the 1950's. the hulls are farily different, with the DUKW having a near flat bow, while the LARC-V has a traditional "Boat"m shaped bow

I sort of meant the general style. The mark II DUKW had Austenitic stainless steel (type 316L) bolts on the motor mounts, whereas the mark III had...

So they are either looking straight down or drive laying down

That's why it's so dark so you can't tell they are in their sleeping...
