Fax Machine Commercial

Nyack has served as the backdrop location for the filming of many movies, television shows and commercials over the years.  In one particular venture, Mazeppa and Empire Fire Companies teamed up as the backdrop for a 1980s FAX machine commercial.  Mazeppa's 1963 Seagrave Pumper was parked in the Empire firehouse with members from both companies filling in as extras.  Stardom shined on Mazeppa's own Bob Schettig and Robert Kolessar.

Hollywood took some liberties with reality.  If only it were that easy to get detailed information of the scene as you headed out the door.  Thirty years later and we still don't have a FAX machine.
