That is so cool to read this in your Dad's own words. Do you still have the tie clip? I've said it before that this truck has to be the best family and vehicle history ever and still think so.

Hope all is well.

Dad still has the tie clip according to my sister who lives near Mom and Dad in Wichita, Doug. I'm hoping he'll pass it on to me.

Thanks for the kind words!

You're welcome Ed. I'm glad they are still doing well! I'm sure he knows it belongs with the truck. I can't blame him for hanging on to that little piece of recognition he got for submitting such a cool story.

I got a surprise in the mail from my sister today, Doug. She was able to convince Dad to pass ownership of the Golden Hammer award on to me. Here's what she wrote:

"Dad asked me to send you his prized Golden Hammer. It shows signs of wear because he used to wear it as a tie clip to work. No doubt he told the story to many co-workers. I hope you enjoy it as much as he did."

Dad worked as a systems engineer for the military division of Boeing in Wichita for 41 years before he retired in 1989.

Something like that should have been worn proudly I'd say! The wear just adds to the history of the truck's story.

If I would have been awarded that little prize, I may have taken up wearing a tie!

Good for you to get another piece of the history!
