Jay Leno’s Garage features 1914 Christie Fire Engine

I admit that I’m a big fan of Jay Leno’s Garage and am extremely envious of this guy and what he owns and gets to drive. This week’s show is very awesome in that it features a 1914 fire engine whose designer is one of the early engineering geniuses who brought automotive to life. This huge, steam-driven water squirter with a likelihood of causing as many fires as it put out, is really great to see fully restored and in working order.

Check it out in the video below or visit Jay Leno’s Garage to see more.
