The Richardson museum is not open to the public but I have been told that they are reasonably responsive to people with a genuine interest.

Of the COEs in NZ I mentioned, one is at the Richardson museum and I am told that the other restored example is still in Blenheim. I don't know what happened to the third. It was complete and in good condition. Apparenly there was another very rusty example but I'm not sure about that.

I think you'd find if you were from the other side of the world and enquired to the right person well in advance you'd have little trouble getting through. The first time I went through there was about '96 and I'm not sure if the Airflow was quite finished at that stage, but Bill Richardson was one of the most genuine people you could ever hope to meet, and gave many a tour personally to clubs and groups. He was a great loss to the community here - as was shown by the procession at his funeral.

I was only recently given a copy of the book that was produced about the museum and I haven't had a chance to read right through it yet, but it's an amazing collection that I hope continues to be well looked after and and added to.

And to totally hijack the thread Invercargill is pretty underrated - Queens Park is one of the best things they did when they set out this city - it's part of a 'green belt' that runs right through the middle of the city to right near where I live that will never be built out.

On a more serious note, please return some of that Ford tin that you've pinched from down here Ted, I'm in desperate need of some of it right about now!

Here are two 34 pickups. One photo is a 'driving' shot from the cab of "the beater" and the other is a photo of a friend's pickup that he finished restoring a couple of years back. It is a NZ pickup that had been off the road since 1957. My friend has owned it 25 years or so.

I have been trying to upload other photos but for some reason they are rejected. These are jpg images well within the file size and no different in that respect to the two that have been accepted.

Hi guys not to poach this thread but I went through the Richardson museum just before Bill died.A bunch of us were touring the south island on our motor bikes and I called Bill and he told us to come around.The most amazing collection and he told us all about each truck and were he found them.As I'm into 37s he had several.He was really into the dual axil trucks and showed us all the different ways drive was transmitted to the back axil.Thornton was one company that ford used but there were others.My film camera shredded the film so I lost all the photos.The most amazing thing was the beauty of the american trucks as compared to the english and european ones.Even in the 50s and 60s the english trucks had no driver comfort what so ever.Cheers Tony.

Pickups have always been my favorite. 'Lil Red in the snow is my current driver. The wine colored was my first 34pu found on a farm in pieces near Huntingdon PA. There was not enough left to put back together original so I did the next best thing to get it back in service. Wish I had her back!
Oh yea - my hair was a little darker then!
