Why did this fire truck need such big tires? Because it was in Antarctica. In 1974, this fire truck serviced McMurdo Station. It's one of ten of the oddest fire trucks ever built, including one built from a Rolls Royce, one built from a T-62 main battle tank and a tiny fire truck used inside Grand Central Station in New York City. You can view photos of them and more at the link.
