The famous "Dominoes" truck.  A 1930 type 30-6-1 75' tillered wooden aerial, this truck was owned by Dominoes Pizza and painted accordingly.  The truck is powered by a 1200 cu. in. "P" type Fox T head engine.  It originally had solid rubber drive tires but was converted to duals after an accident in the 1940's.  The two section wooden stick is raised by a Dahill air hoist.

The fourth Fox is a 1925 J-S-4 that belonged to Collinsville, IL.  It was purchased in "kit form" and awaits restoration.  It is similar to the N-S-4 at the top of this page.
