Passion is definitely the word for it how else can you explain it to an outsider. The money thing all started I believe at the Earl Mahanka sale many years ago. This sale was the real begining of the whole money trend. When one of the bigger machines, I believe an Altman Taylor, didn't bring enough money the Elder Cruse started to talk about how the prices on these tractors will always be going up and related how much the value of a Duesengurg car had increased in the last few years and kept the speel going until the buyers in front of him started to BOO. He finally gave it up and Kermit Kebler I think finally won the bid. I hate to say it but looking back Mr Cruses remarks have come true. The problem is the true believers are finding it harder and harder to surport their passion today. Ed B.

I think this thread has drifted away from the Gary Parker auction itself.........

I've got to be REAL careful here because sometimes she looks at these boards when I'm not around. My demise might get some unwanted assistance!!

Very true Ed. But it was all about passion and still is to a few of us. I still love old stuff and always will. I love the chase alot also. Just plain clean fun. And for those who do it for the fame, I hope they get the rust fever and change their ways.
Though I must admit I like seeing my toys rise in value and it doesn't hurt!

Here's a couple of pics of the 30-60 AT at it's new home in TN. Saw it and the new owner last weekend, and he couldn't be happier!

It's two years now since one of the best sales i have been too(altough the prices where high) but the Collections was superb and i had the pleasure to met many stakkers there and kind a liked the idea to put this thread back too life.

What happend to some of the Tractors sold there? guess everyone knows what happend to the stuff i got from the sale.

Hope there will be a similar Auction like this one next year.

George

I got the Indiana that had the wrong engine but since then have gotten the correct engine. I am still missing the clutch and after seing other Indianas out there I think I need the same clutch as a Star tractor since the ser# is so low. Anyone have a pic of the clutch in a Star?

I also got the Gile tractor AKA Stearns tractor. Turned out to my surprise even the funny looking radiator was correct. I just need to find a Stearns engine from a 18-36 Huber. Or part out a complete Huber to get the engine

Cool Re: Gary Parker Auction

The Aultman Taylor is still in Tennessee, and the owner is still happy! At the Portland TN show he led the parade with it on Saturday, and I followed second on one of my traction engines. He looked like he was on top of the world driving that big Aultman leading the parade!
