That is just too cool, thanks for doing that. I'd like to find the originals to scan... they are somewhere within the family. The one I posted was a scanned print. I tired to fix the pic, but couldn't figure out the right filter to get that line out.

If you could scan the original I could do a better colorization.

My dad is thrilled, thanks for doing that. He said they were bullhead catfish.

Are those 2 planes the same, only repainted? Are they Pipers? I live in the town the the Piper planes were built in until they moved to Fla in the mid 80's....

The first one was my Grandpa's first plane. The second is a local plane they give instruction in. Both are Cessna 172 Skyhawks.

My dad and I are kind of on the hunt to recreate this truck. Anyone know of any for sale?

You're in the middle of farm country, I'd bet it wouldn't be too hard to find one on Craigslist and keep an eye on eBay. The larger pickups don't usually command too high of a price.

Just look for the rust in the seams of the front fenders and cab floors. Those are the worse parts. Also, read my warning about F-3 stock wheels I posted ealier. If you are set on a F-3 do a search of this site for "F-3" and "Widow Makers".

You might not want the original, you know the drilling business is rough on trucks. The local water well company in the town where I grew up had a monkey face boom truck they used up until at least the 80's.

If you think your's is still in the Esbon area, you might run an add in one of the local newspapers. If you don't find the original, might find another one; or get a good story.

Lebanon Times; 409 Walnut St Lebanon, KS 66952 (5 miles)
785-389-6631

Jewell County Record; 111 East Main, Mankato, KS 66956 (15 miles)
785 378-3191

Smith County Pioneer; PO Box 266, Smith Center, KS 66967 (22 miles)
785 282-3371

I like getting off the beaten path whenever I go somewhere, never been to Esbon but might have to go through there the next time I go down 36.
