Jaap + fire engine
'Just like a kid's drawing of a truck: a bit angular'
How many people have a fire engine standing in their garage? A real one, I mean. Well, Jaap Schröder, fertilizer expert at PRI Wageningen, does. It's a bright red General Motors CCKW 353. Nostalgia for his childhood, says Schröder. 'We used to live next door to the fire station.' And as well as one real fire engine, Jaap has a big collection of miniature GMC trucks, most of which he made himself. Take a look at www.gmccckw.nl.
