Diva Clutch :: Red Fire Truck

0.00

Ever wondered why fire trucks were red? 

Although no one knows for sure, one theory is that volunteer fire fighters wanted/needed their vehicles to stand out.  And because they were volunteers, the service was not funded so paying extra for a coloured vehicle was out of the question.  Recall that back in the day, Henry Ford famously proclaimed you could get a Ford a vehicle in any colour, as long as it was black.  So without funds, the volunteers painted the truck red because it was abundant and highly visible.  

Another theory proposes that they are red because they have eight wheels and four people on them, and four plus eight makes twelve, and there are twelve inches in a foot, and one foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth I was a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was also a ship, and the ship sailed the seas, and there were fish in the seas, and fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians, and the Russians are called red, and fire trucks are always “Russian" around, so that's why fire trucks are red!

Whichever theory you subscribe to, fire engine red sure makes for a colourful and distinct wallet.
