It is August 1st, 1960, north of Encino, New Mexico.
Marge Coyote and the cubs; Jed, Clarence, Rex and Donna are travelling southbound on Highway 285 toward Encino in their brand new 1960 Plymouth station wagon.
This is shortly after Marge and the cubs rode past an accident scene where a 1958 Chevy carrying a beaver couple had overturned. They had already met two ambulances rushing to the scene. They now met a fire truck dispatched to the scene in case the overturned Chevy catches on fire (which it didn't).

Here they are riding past the home of the family of Rufus and Laura Opossum...The Coyote cubs know Rufus because he is the janitor/maintenance opossum at the school they attend.
In this scene is shown all members of the opossum family;
In the foreground is Lisa, Lester and Vince...Vince is on the minibike.
On the other side of the highway, near the house and '53 Plymouth wagon, are youngest siblings, Dora and Sheila, playing with their dollhouse and dolls...Dora is to the left in the pic.
Daddy Rufus and Mama Laura are loading their '55 Dodge pickup to make a scrap metal run.
Presently, the opossums are watching the fire truck go by.
Marge and the cubs are travelling between 75 and 80 mph.
The fire truck it going at 60 mph.


Counting Marge and the 4 cubs in the 1960 Plymouth, there are a total of 16 characters in this pic.

And counting the old bus and the minibike, there are 6 vehicles in this pic.

I've seen rural firetrucks with big tanks like that... they need them!

How true that is when there are no hydrants around.

I actually wonder how many artists would have thought of that when drawing a fire truck in a rural setting.

Rural ones I've seen usually have a standard one and a tanker truck. I dread too see the crash, not so survivalable then.

Oh sheesh...That tank would tear loose from the frame and crush the cab.

It's probably more well secured then any driver/passenger.

Considering they didn't have seat belts back in those days.

Coming in at the time but only taken seriously in the US in the last 25 years.

There were some limited production high performance cars in the 1950s that were optional with seat belts.

I remember it was about 1964 or 1965 that seat belts were mandatory in all new cars. Sometime in 1966 or 1967 was when shoulder harnesses were added, which the rear seats still were belt only.

Something like that, the US is still one of the loosest in the Western world in usage though.
