I don't have any connection to this auction and I have to work and can't attend so I hope someone will post the results.
Assets of Walt Pazda's Estate in Silver Creek NY
Details at www.hgpauction.com
Look for the block that lists Walt Pazda's estate and click on it. There are 20 or so Model T's and Model A's plus parts.
Sorry Jim we must have been posting at the same time.
20.5% internet Bid? WOW!
so much for that auction???
You have to click the photo to see what the item sold for >>> https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=79826&p=3&sort=0#cnTb
From what I can see of the items I looked at, it appears to have been some good deals even adding the 20.5 percent.
If anyone one here bought the T wheel lot, I am looking for 2 good rear 23" TT wheels. Let me know.
Looks like a lot of CHEAP TT's and others, I'm like Donnie, its on the other side of our world
I was there though I bought nothing. The first cars to go sold for quite low amounts; the ESSO truck went for only $1700 for example. The tank leaked, or so I understood.
There were some good bargains but a lot of bidders were discouraged by the gigantic sizes of the lots. You were out of luck if you came looking for, say, a set of nice rims: all the wheels and rims were together in one giant lot. The photo shows only about 1/4 of the whole thing.
One negative was that the terms of the auction kept changing right up to the opening. The site clearly said "13% buyer's premium" and the Internet BP was 19% or so. But in getting started, they said that the on-site BP was 16% and the Internet BP was 17.5%. He then went on to say that if you bought one or two things and wanted to cash out and take them right away that that would be fine. It was, until folks tried to do that. They were then informed that they would not be allowed to move anything until the auction was entirely completed. There was some grumbling, I can tell you. But overall there were a lot of bargains to be had if you brought your semi with you.
Instead of separating stuff, like in the workshop areas, the auction co. just threw up yellow tape around different areas and you had to bid on everything in the taped off area as one lot.
