Yesterday, Jeff Holbin, a Clio firefighter, got the keys to a bright yellow,1968 LaFrance Flint Fire Department firetruck.

According to, Jeff bought it from Flint Fire Department Quartermaster Rico Phillips, who bought the truck in a 2003 city auction.


The best part? Jeff bought it as a wedding present for his fiance Marissa McAlister.

Probably just like I bought a .38 Special for my wife on our first anniversary.

Both presents are (IMO) beautiful tokens of true love.

Here's the story.
