Whakatane Volunteer Fire Brigade Vintage Fire Engine: The gearbox has clapped out and the brigade has asked for our help.
 
Brent magnanimously offered the help of his son in law who is a diesel mechanic.
 
The vintage engine is used in the Whakatane Rotary Christmas Parade every year and carries the jolly old fella himself.
This engine was originally the engine for the Whakatane Board Mill and when their brigade was disbanded it was gifted to the Whakatane Brigade along with many of their fire crew.
 
Mark is to liaise with the fire brigade
