Andrew Leider has a unique, one million dollar worth collection of 450 antique firetrucks.
I started purchasing old fire trucks 13-years-ago after I worked with the fire fighters on 9/11, and I greatly appreciated their heroism and I felt they should be honored by my purchasing one antique firetruck in their memory, says Leider.
But soon it became an addiction. Andrew sources the trucks from fire departments around the U.S.; most he bought at scrap value, but some were rather expensive. Now his collection is so large, it takes up takes up space in three warehouses in New York and Pennsylvania.
He says it’s a lot of fun to drive the trucks, but it’s actually more fun to see other people looking at the trucks and appreciate them.
Next on his agenda is to set up firetruck museums in New York and Pennsylvania.
