Like my Fire Truck?
 
Cost me towing which was about $100.
 
They took the 1000L tank and pump off. They wanted to keep that.

Yeah I couldn't imagine riding shotgun on the left side. I'd be scared driving over there, think your getting use to it and then slip up and find yourself on the wrong side of the road quick.

That is the hand brake. That was when I was at the previous owners. It was a modern plastic tank with a cage and a tiny pool pump used to put out spot fires. Nothing I wanted to show. I have done heaps of right hand and left hand driving here as my business truck was once a fire truck. All I have added is a small hydraulic crane a welder and some tools. Nothing special. The previous owner has reported 9000lbs on the back sitting on the axle. It was tested once at 4t (12,000lbs) and that burst the rear tires. They figured 1 1/4t was enough weight on the back.

If I find some doors I will enter it as is. Until I can get a decent collection of parts. It runs fine after I drained the unleaded fuel and switched to leaded, I had a temporary number plate ($100) and it drove the 30 miles home without any problems.
