Here is the link where they discuss the Kern Co by TWH: http://www.modelfiretrucks.net/smf/index.php?PHPSESSID=05f55b970f496d89f5d7651b45073fb1&topic=8774.0
The earliest uses of "Black Friday" were in Philidephia and referred to the heavy traffic on that day, a direct comparison to the stressful and chaotic experience of Black Tuesday in 1929 when the stock-market crashed. In more recent history, it is the day named for when most retailers go from being in the 'red' all year to finally being in the 'black'.
But, for the Christmas shopper, it's the day to get GREAT DEALS!

"I am very pleased to see that replicas of Kern County's Fire Apparatus are being produced and made available to the public," says Deputy Chief Mike Cody. “TWH Collectibles has really produced an outstanding model of our actual Fire Apparatus. You really have to study a picture of the model to determine it is not the real thing. These are a very accurate representation of our Pierce Quantum Engines.”
Functions and features of the Kern County 1/50 scale Pierce(r) Quantum(r) Pumper include details such as an opening cab that reveals a detailed diesel engine and transmission, opening hose crosslay doors, steerable front wheels, functioning suspension, detailed inner cab, realistic hose and wire placement, accurate gauge panel with fills and discharges, a photo-etched grill, and much more.
"It has been a distinct pleasure working with Chief Cody on this project as we appreciate his passion for his community and its people," says Nicholas Neumann, V.P. of Sales and Marketing for TWH Collectibles. "We hope these replicas allow the community of Kern County to experience in a small way, the pride of the department. We look forward to the replication of many other vehicles that Kern County Fire Department employs to serve its community."
