    Check this out.

    I found this listing in a Profiles auction catalog. Read the description. Look at the painting.

    I remember that movie - didn't they run a salvage company and fly to the moon to pick up all the apollo crap that got left behind. IIRC the command module was from a cement mixer truck.

    Silly rabbit - don't you remember that scene in Apollo 13 where Tom Hanks dreams about sending Andy Griffith to the moon in a cement mixer? :D

    Quest?

    That was just the fuel they used.

    You may be mistaking that with the Robinsons always drilling for duetronium(sp?).

    Well my memory may be clouded but I thought they had a hard time making/getting the fuel but heck wehn I was a kid I thought it was cool. Yeah Quest is probably inaccurate.

    Could that have been an in-joke on Ron Howard's part? He is Andy's "son" after all...

    Now that would be cool.

    But that painting has been around way longer than Apollo 13. I remember it being in magazines and article about Salvage back when it was made.
