    Amazing what some of the license plate lots went for.

    1.4 million was just 1 day, the day the sold the bikes. the whole auction brought in just shy of $4 million.

    some of the cars were resold on ebay already. Some didn't meet reserve and are relisted.

    I went through the listings pretty quick but it seemed some of the stuff was fairly reasonable, some a bit high. Would have been fun to have been there. Thanks for posting the results, was interesting to look through.
     
  9. I cant see the prices on the bikes. It wasn't too long ago that you could buy a running Indian Chief for 4500 or so now they are a fortune. Recession my ASS its proof positive that some one has the money out there, unfortunately its not me.
     
  10. Hay dont sweat it, it's gonna "Trickle down" :rolleyes:

    I thought it was opposite on the memorabilia and vintage car parts and such.

    I did buy something there though! Got caught up in the auction heat. Ouch!

    A cool 4 Million $$$.
    And the neighbors probably talked it up saying he was a goofball hoarder with a bunch of old cars and shit. I love it.

    Check out the 1950 Spohn-bodied Veritas. $195,000!!?? That thing looks like a sperm whale on a skateboard.

    How about the Edwards sports car for $145000? "Might" be the first Pebble Beach winner?

    Looks like the 1%-ers were there.

    Most of the Fords went for reasonable prices. Pretty much everything else was way over market. And those prices don't reflect the 15% seller fee and 9.25% sales tax.
     
  16. I'm just over- whelmed on the prices of those scooters, HOLY SHIT who o thunk that those two wheelers would have brought so much money!!!
     
  17. Thanks for posting and proof that if you hang onto someone else's shit they didnt want for long enough,..you will make millions. After you die,..hardly seems fair!

    He could have sold it before he died and had the money-but chose not to.All the same, they're still making more money, but no new NOS Deuce parts.

    That Veritas was at Hershey this fall-pretty cool-and maybe ChevyGirlRox sitting along with it-but I was far away and wasn't sure.
     
  21. Good on him for that, a true collector - its not about the money the collection is what matters.
     
  22. I was going to say... cripes the price raised faster than a bidder could raise his hand!

    Good to see people with money again.

    A few lots had NOS deuce parts but most lots were large and had to dig a bit. I know one lot had a NOS speedo,cylinder lock n keys 4 of them ,a gas pedal, pads,tail light and a bunch more 33-34 stuff if I recall.

    Final chapter of the Hartung story:

    http://www.showcase.com/b/commercial-real-estate/Tim-Wagener/2950854

    When they announced the auction, I figured the property would be worth as much as the collection, but I wasn't expecting $4 million for all the goodies... Whatever gets built there, I'll bet you will still hear the sound of ghostly four-bangers on moonlit nights...
