I had a few friends that have fantasized about buying a used school bus off of Ebay and roadtripping in it (presumably after they saw the movie Road Trip). This one would be even better - a fire truck.

The town of Shrewsbury is auctioning off a decommissioned 1982 firetruck with a funtional 75 foot ladder. And before you get too excited:

All sirens and lights are functional, but not legal for use by private buyers.

As of right now, there have been 22 bids and the current high bid is $3,390.02 - sounds like a quite the bargain to me. I'm racking my brains to figure out two things.

1. What kind of lawful shenanigans could me and my friends get into with an old fire truck. I'm guessing probably not much.

2. Where in the world would you park this thing?

It's probably better off going to a small town that needs a backup firetruck and doesn't have the dough to purchase a new one.

Click (here) to go to the ebay site. The auction ends in just under 24 hrs.
