Very interesting truck, but probably 12-14 mph flat out.  I definitely like it but not quite sure what a person would do with it other than trailer and display. Not nit picking but I think the Buda is probably a 1920's re-power. It looks much to modern for 1912. You definitely would be the only kid on your block to have one.

"Also known as a Hook and ladder truck"

 

I've always meant to ask what the "Hook" in Hook and Ladder refers to?

In the 'head on' picture, there's an engine on the right side of the frame.  What is it, if I may ask?

Can anyone make out the large embossed letters on the hood and know what they might stand for?

If it's originally from the greater Seattle area, Tacoma perhaps?

This seems like a pretty elaborate garnish from a manufacturer.
