Family of Towing Brothers and Dad before them had auction. One of brothers died recently. They have properties all over with junk all over. This auction was only Some of stuff! Lots of old items been setting in couple barns derilect for years. There was some trucks, usable backhoe ad crawler, a brand new almost 2720 deer and tiller with 15hrs on it!! It went for 18,500 for tractor with loader. The tiller got $1600 alone. A few 2 wheel rigs, no names, look like Clinton engines on them, very small. Attachments for some I guess. One bigger one with Wisconsin engine and open spinning blade for amputations. Some GP Deere's, one with loader, some plows and cults and such. Grader box went for $250. Was nice, but not that cheap. The JD blade by it went for $350. Was a big Autocar Truck body, setting on a frame with I-beam on top of frame whole length. Said Autocar V-8 on hood. Had V-8, but looked Fordish in a way, yet too heavy I think. Odd double carbs on it. Think was a transplant, along with the two tranny's under the cab and rear end was diff and had neat almost new odd tires on it. Was a fixer upper made of many things, ha! Here's some pix in random order. I had to leave, no $$ and going real slow, and have a wedding today.

Dad used to call those Autocars " Aufull Cars". He said they were a bear to work on. Neat pictures. Looks like it was fun. Thanks. Roger.

Did you watch those Deere GPs go? What did that Hit n' miss bring sitting behind them?
I wonder what that Wisconsin powered rig was. Did it sell well?

Sorry, didn't stay long, just wanted to see what was there. Nothing was very cheap like Me! I had my Son's wedding today and couldn't hang around long. Would have taken all day to see most go, was kinda slow moving. I did take pix of couple more 2 wheelers, but guess they got messed up in phone or something and didn't come out. Those had the small Clintons on them. Shame they had the Auction same day as the wedding! What were they thinking??

Hope the GT stuff went to good homes and not to scrap yard. I see a Wards reel mower attachment, wonder if the rest was there.
So, are you starting a different thread on the wedding? Did everyone say I Do when they should?

Wedding thread?? Nah! He's in his 30's, but first wedding for both. Never thought He would ever connect! They act like 18 year olds. Won't be boring you with that stuff. Hey, maybe a pix of Me in a Tux???
