A friend of mine has built cars that went to Mecum and Barrett-Jackson. One set a record at the time. A lot of it is about guys wanting to be seen on tv spending a lot of money. The people that spend cash like that, don't work like we do. There's a lot more rich people out there then you realize. And some aren't neccessarily rich. They've saved their money, the house is paid for and the kids are gone and they decide to splurge. Now whether the money is spent wisely, that's another story.

    Half of that stuff goes for ridiculous sums but never actually sells, they have a waiting period before the sale and most back out before sale.  bunch of BS if you ask me.  rich boys taking the hobby out of the average joe's hand.

100% Right. See it on ebay all the time. Here, I suppose it may be a way to get ratings or raise expectations.

Maybe I should have them see my big tractors. I have a MH30 that is in at least that good of condition, with a parts tractor... that I can't give away for 1000. That's less than what my parents have in it.

That "H"  might have been a real bargain afterall.

 

I just heard on the radio that the license plates from the Lincoln limmo JFK was killed in brought $100,000 and a menu from the last meal served on the Titanic brought $118,000.   I'd much rather have the tractor, and for less money too.

The only problem with that is IH made 1000's of H's, there is only one of each of those items.

I think whoever bought those things should take whatever money they have left and go buy a clue

The story on that H is that it has less than 200 original hours on it. That would make it as close to "original" as one could get. By the looks of the thing I would say it might be about right. At least two people must have thought it was worth more than your average H in order to get the price up that high. Serial number 504 just sold last month for a little over 11,000. That would make it the 4th H built but it was in its work clothes. This one was a 52 model making it one of the last straight H's built. That being said I wouldn't have paid 40 grand for it either.

 I try to catch those auctions on RFD whenever I can and I've noticed that the sale prices vary greatly with the location that the auction is being held. Did anyone else see the Harrisburg Pa episode? I thought those tractors were going pretty cheap compared to what they would bring out west. That being said, 40 grand is still a pile of cash no matter what the tractor color may be or were it's sold. Just a little outside my price range.
