|Old 104 Rides Again by Carrie Steinweg
Old 104 is an antique fire engine who wants nothing more
than to be able to race to a fire again. Because he’s been

engines and trucks do all the work. He enjoys being admired
at parades and special events, but one summer day he finally
gets the chance to show what he can do.
