"This will be the granddaddy of all auctions," said Jim Derstine, president of the Pennsylvania National Fire Museum in Harrisburg.

"This will be the granddaddy of all auctions," said Jim Derstine, president of the Pennsylvania National Fire Museum in Harrisburg.

...
The trucks that are likely to attract the most attention at the auction are the open-cab vehicles built during the "golden age" of fire truck construction, Derstine said.Manufacturers stopped making those vehicles in 1985 for safety reasons.Most of the vehicles to be auctioned date from the 1940s and 1950s.
People who buy fire trucks are usually civilians, but many fire departments, particularly volunteer departments that were forced to sell older vehicles to raise money, are in the market to replace what they lost, said Derstine, a retired federal firefighter.
The price someone is willing to pay does not always depend on the condition or make of the fire truck, he said.
"Somebody might go out there and that might be the piece that their father rode when he was in the fire service or whatever and it might have sentimental meaning, so that might outweigh the value and the pocketbook," he said.
While acknowledging "there's great interest out there" in the auction, Derstine said it might have attracted more interest had it been conducted as a live auction instead of through sealed bids.Sealed bids will limit the number of participants, he said.
