Did anybody here make it to day #1 in Zanesville?
I had to work today, tomorrow, and Monday. I really want to go but couldn't get off.
I did and I have all the STATS!!
1926 4 Dr - $7500 They were able to start it.
1915 2 Dr Touring $4500
1922 Grocery Truck $4200 - IMO I thought it went high for the condition. Did not run.
1916 2 Dr Touring $1500 Engine serial number was in the 13 million range.....
1920 2 Dr Touring $975
1926 2 Dr Touring $1300 - Had a Coke Cola sign for a roof. It was also a 4 Dr cut down to be a 2 dr with a truck bed.
The auctioneer sure did not help the family out by loosing the crowd early selling some of the dollar stuff off of the tents. They should of had two rings going early on not wait till the end and have two rings running on T parts, what where they thinking?? I am not going back the second day! But I bet it will all go cheap, they said there is 10 more trailers of car parts, but what kind, no one knew.
Joe - not sure what to believe, but I spoke to one of the daughters of the man that passed away. She did confirm there were 10 more trailers. I asked how many were T stuff and she thought at least 2. She then turned to someone else and asked him He said there were 6 trailers of T's but I did not get the feeling it was genuine. It felt like he wanted me to come back for the crowd.......
OK I am stumped - what is a 2 Dr Touring? All the tourings I am aware of have either three doors (USA production) or four doors (Canadian, British).
Royce,it was a 26 body,cut off and hand fabed metal cab. Would have made a nice beater.
You can see photos of the 2 Dr Touring cars at:
Apparently that is just the way the auction co. labeled them.
Sunday sounds like the day to be there for parts.
Looking forward to hear about the deals today.
What went on at the Auction on Sunday?
The auctioneer stood up in front of a group of people while displaying item and yelling out dollar increments trying to get someone to wave hello at him
Just getting back to the PC I went both days but only had my camera Sunday. Took a few photos, did meet a couple forum folks. Auctioneer was good but late Saturday some people were moving things around to get them to sell Saturday. I missed two ruckstell shifters like that, ebayer got them, and a nice stop light. The old fellow who had this stuff marked most everything, I think that added to the value of the non-T stuff he had, especially to the people who was buying to resell only.
Thanks for posting additional pictures. I wish I could have attended but I had to work.
I apologize for being a smart a$$. I guess when they finally throw dirt over my face I'll stop. Well if the undertaker carries out my last request I may still get the last laugh.
My motto is "Life is too short to be taken serious"
Looks like a good sale. Too bad it was four states away.
Dennis I got a good laugh out of it...I'm sure I will repeat it.
Good pictures,I should have drove the 500 miles.
Any one know what the express truck went for?
The auctioneers were idiots. Doing buyers choice on 2 dollar items is insane and wastes time. Missed bidding on many items due to his jumping all over the place with the dual ring system.
Plus the damn truck broke down on the way home adding to the disgust. Don't know if it could have gotten worse but it could have I suppose.
