I know I'm not the only one that saw this on their news feed this AM.

Auction Catalog

The title of the article was needless spam bait. This collection is pretty unique. Cool motorcycles, sprint cars, midgets, parts, engine, Peugeots, Alfas, Maserati, Citroen, and more. Because of the breadth and depth, there may be some deals to be had here. 

Too many faves to post all the picts, but here is a taste.

And many, many more.

This is as odd a collection as that Norwalk auction last year.  I think it is the same auction company.

I’ll be in Ludington on that day, grab me something cool, as long as it goes for less than $2k.

I think I would get along very well with whoever put this collection together.

I prebid a few items about a month ago.  I don't see any hope of getting any of them.

Wow, that dude was really into midgets, flat heads and wierd stuff.

I think the Lotus v8 would be right at home in the Elan or a TVR

The Peugot 504 looks SO much like a Fiat 124 Sport coupe.

There has to be some cars that will go at challenge prices.  Heck, I  would not bid more than 2k for the Alfa.  Way too much work to bring that back.  Even better that there are so many other cool cars, bikes, and engines being auctioned off.

That’s exactly what I was thinking. You gotta be able to pick up something that would blow challenge judges/entrants minds for less than $2K.

There are a lot of Maseratis from the Biturbo era being offered! devil

There are like 8 Quattroporte sedans. That should be enough to make one runner.

She is awesome, I talked to her fifteen years ago and she said she has a team that go out make sure the auction offered is cool enough! We went to a couple in Iowa and Minnesota that blew our minds.

VanDerBrink always has a few sleepers, but the auction house is well known, and the serious players always show up.   Multiple rings are common, so it is a good idea to bring a friend or three to help keep track.   

Or to check it out in advance, and prebid.  Plenty of people get caught up in bidding, sometimes to make up for one that got away, so they overbid something that they didn't check out/research properly.   Figure out your max bid, and be prepared to let it get away.

Oh... Those Peugeot wagons are calling my name. One of them could be fun to play with. But I'm not in a position to get one now. The race van needs sold to free up money and the truck needs to be running. Oh, well. Add them to the list to look for later.

At the hackenberger auction we probably got the best deal by lowballing about 40 cars.  We got the 41 Studebaker President blasted with no rust and fresh paint for $700.  

I have my bidding approval.

I have to update my card information with them today, but i am planning to bid on an interceptor 

That's one of the best strategies possible.    Never fall in love with anything at an auction.

I'd love to have one of the Jawas for a display bike in the living room.  The space seems naked since I sold the Guzzi Monza...
