Wow! The only way that could have been better is if you rolled a bone stock 32 three window out of the ground floor!

Interesting he left all the engines, would have to guess they were considered scrap.

Sure, he did good, however, the beneficiaries of the deceased, have been ripped off haven't they? All you hoarders out there that can't bear to part with your stuff should start to think what's gonna happen to all your treasure when you kick off. The poor widow, who's tolerated all this madness, all these years, just wants the 'junk' gone....
Not trying to be negative, I have a good mate [a knowledgeable car guy], roped in to address the sale of all my crap on behalf of the widow I leave behind, just so she receives at least a fair price.

Might want to do it before. Get down to what ya need not covet. Just went through this with a neighbor. All the stuff went for nickels on the dollar. Felt bad for the widow. I bid up stuff and bought some nice stuff. But I didn't need 12 tractors so I couldn't bid without owning. Kept my hand up till no one bid on a snap-on lower cab, ended up at 60$. I was lucky enough to go through first before the contract and buy some stuff. Full price to what I could afford. It can be weird and not step on any toes and be polite.

The results are of poor planning and advertising on the auction companyís part. I donít consider the buyers as ripping off anybody. They paid the high bid on each of their purchases.

It's a crap shoot for the seller. There can be a lot of stuff people think is valuable, but isn't also. Auctions are great!

Anything of value that you have and collect , put one of those little cardboard tags with the sting on it and attach it to the item with what you think it is worth. Saves a lot of head scratching for your family.

Hi; I may have already seen some of the 'stuff' for sale else where. Some visitors to my 'hoard' noticed," He's got price tags on everything!" It's all tagged guys- dates, prices, and ids of the part. Just do it as the parts come into the barn. My 'relatives' are all gals and they just want Money. Newc

Thanks for the share guys. I’m keeping and putting as much of this to use as I can. I wish I had enough cash on me to buy it all but that’s what happens sometimes when you get into these sort of deals! I can’t wait to put this stuff back to use!
