There are a bunch of Hart-Parrs going to Germany. I sat right behind "German George" and once he started bidding he didn't stop! Only one time did he not get a tractor he bid on. That would make for a very fun auction. As for myself, the only thing I bought was lunch!

Titan, I looked for you today, and didn't see you. All I bought at the auction was the Tom Thumb, 8-16 Plow Guide, and this air cleaner (privately)...

I was sitting in the last row of chairs on the floor. I was within 10' of where Gary Parker was sitting. Interesting to watch his expressions as things sold. I saw a LOT of people I know but with the crowd it doesn't surprise me that you would miss someone. Very nice air cleaner by the way!

Does anyone know where the Mogul Type C, Galloway, Massey No.2, Gray, E-B, Allwork and Moline Orchard went? Did George Schaaf have all of these??

I took some vidoes on my phone and posted them to youtube last night. I was busy talking when the big Mogul went so I missed that one, but I pretty much got the rest. I've uploaded five so far and will get the rest up this evening.

It was great seeing everyone!

Loading was a bear, George Shaaf's henchmen just took over loading proceedures... Their semi trailers were there before the sale began.. Anyone bidding against the all mighty George were doomed from the get go...

Here is my perspective. The layout which was fine for the viewing, provided a lot of talk about what a bear the load out process was going to be. Most of the tractors were in a building that all had to funnel out thru one door. However, in that doorway, was the Mogul 45, Minneapolis, Galloway, and Hart Parr 30-60...once those were move around, a JD 830 and row of shepard diesels and 2 other hart parrs had to be moved. I will say that I observed German George moving the Hart Parr's that he purchased into a spot that was vacated by moving a different tractor so his would be out of the isle.

So, if the tractors that George purchased were in the way, don't blame George or the truckers he hired to do the hauling for doing their part to get the tractors moved out. It might have helped to have someone directing the load out process with the authority of the auction co. I am sure that lessons were learned and this problem won't be repeated at other auctions (right...I have had problems getting loaded at other auctions by different auction companies). I noticed one pickup truck & trailer that was empty in front of the building that had to be moved back and forth who knows how many times because they were "waiting to get their load". I also will note that the parking field that was to be used, but couldn't due to the rain also was a major factor in the mess.

As to parking...I guess it pays to get there early.

As to Bidding, I was up in the cheap seats and was watching the bidding...There are tractors that George did not get as he/his bidders backed out. I have no problem with people spending money that they earned on what ever they want. If my numbers had come up, I would be spending like a drunk tractor collector and you could complain about me.....
