Ronny is right, Piedmont never had a B737-100. Lufthansa had the first 737-100s. Essex Wire, Corp. had the first corporate B737-100. NASA had a -100 which is in the museum at Washington Dulles Airport.
I have a 8X10 picture of a Piedmont B-737-200 (N734N) with the old Darter thrust reversers (short pylon). The first 737s had air bags to seal the main landing gear wheel wells, but were removed, as they would rub the air bags on gear retraction.
If anybody is interested in a picture of N734N, I will scan it and send it to you.
