    Hallback, I don't know if any of you out there have gone onto this site but the majority of our old IPL Trucks are listed under "Jenna Equipment" now Just google that and it will come up. Sometimes you have to fool around to get some of the stuff to load. The fire tankers are listed under Misc equipment. The real sleeper that was among them was the 245, The sister truck to 246. I see it is now listed as SOLD She was a 1973 HDX I was actually going to buy her if she didn't get sold soon but alas she is gone
