This is the most beautiful Cadillac I've ever seen. All the chrome garbage removed, back to the basic lines...

I can only speculate as to how a Jeep fire engine from Newfields, MO, ended up in the UK.*

Having done a bit of digging around, it appears it was at a show in Kettering, Northamptonshire, organised by the Military Vehicle Trust.

There's also a few stills on the LiveLeak page.

* I'm making a huge assumption that it is the genuine article and not a vehicle restored in the guise of a fire truck according to the owner's whim.

Good find Carruthers! I'd never seen one, but, it appears they're a thing.

Speed trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats, many of the really fast cars have to be push started, because the battery and starter are eliminated to save weight and/or they're geared so high starting from a dead stop is problematic. so you have to have a push vehicle with weight for traction and power to push, usually a pickup truck. But some crews want to be a little classier.

Roll 'em out, Fire 'em up, puuush, puuush.
Send 'em off, Haul 'em back, puuush, puuush.

Yes.
Yes.
From the looks of the engine, wheels, stance, paint, and interior, I'd guess the money he put in that would buy several nice Caddys.

There is a website to identify instrument panels, and another to identify taillights.

The Bugatti Royals were to be limited at 25, and designed for Kings, Rajahs, their courtesans. Building reproductions is difficult except for the engines, hundreds of engines were built for railroad power.

Da fuq izzat red button?

Either the overdrive lockout button or the ejection seat button. Not enough information to tell of they have the "Double O" option package or not. :)
