“I can’t help but notice you two didn’t waste any time recreating the buckskins they wore,” Boomer had been admiring the well-made replica tunics they were wearing, “very nice.”
“We found those in our attic as well—they’re not replicas—the replicas are being made for us on the Rez. These will be given to the Reservation Museum when the new ones are finished.”
Hiram & Kiwi had many more questions and the boys answered as best they could. Boomer was taken aback by, “Your son seems to enjoy flying your Mustang.”
Season VI, Chapter 2, Episode 8:
“I really need to get to the airfield, Hiram, may I get a ride?”
Before answering, Hiram looked up to see a broadly smiling Lar Farkleberry, who had left the café moments before, walking in with a broad smile on his face, “Yes, Boomer, I think we can get you a ride.”
Chris, Sarah and Erik had just left to go, respectively, to PawZ, Cooper’s General Store and the SS Duluth (Erik’s 1920’s steamer yacht) to attend each to their own business—while they had the chance—not knowing when, not if, they would be drawn back to 1873.

Boomer barely heard Farkleberry telling him the story about how he came to possess the car several months before they were sent into the past. He’d won the car along with another Buick, a 1956 Buick Special ex-California Highway Patrol cruiser from a foolish car-collector who’d bet Lar that he couldn’t get the ’56 to run. Being a kind man, Farkleberry gave the collector a ’58 Mercury he’d grown tired of, to soften the blow.
That one was refurbished and sold to the town of Williams’ Station for their yet-to-be-hired Township Marshal.
“You want ‘er?”
