There is a more complete story on external links, but due to the heat and humity around here, I spend quite a few hours pouring over the auction web site http://www.vanderbri...ons_current.php

Hope that I can reply to my own topic...... in addition to this list of new pickups, there are a bunch of used ones, including a 1955 Dodge with 57,000 miles

Because this sale would appeal to the other guys, I bet this Dodge goes cheap.

I also spent a lot of time looking at the pictures for the Day 2 auction where most of the stuff is used, like a junk yard. There are a couple of 53/54 Plymouths, a few Studebakers, a couple of chrysler convertibles. And for the Hamb guys there is a 49 Merc sedan and a 46 Ford Sedan.

Here is the details on the 1955 Dodge Pickup

I'm of mixed opinion, Ram.

 

Word of the auction has definitely gotten around, but it's in Pierce, Neb., and that's a couple of hours from anywhere, let alone any really major city. And it's been so frequently billed as a Chevy auction that until Dennis did all this legwork, I doubted there were many non-Chevy models in the mix. ... But there are quite a few.

 

I think the Chevy stuff will go dear, but Dennis might be right that the other makers will go much cheaper. There are some restorable Ford pickups in the sale, about a '68 Torino (I think) that looked fairly solid, etc., and I think those could be very reasonable.

 

By the way, I just noticed you can bid online for the next 30 days, to set a baseline I guess for where the live bidding starts. Some of the cars might be won online, I suppose. But there's a Chevelle SS 396 that's already at $10,000.

My wife said that I should go, but I told her that it would be like visiting a whorehouse, not In my league and what would I do with one?

I could meet you there and we could be accountabilibuddies. Keep each other from committing any mortal sins while taking in the sights.

Pierce, NE is 125 miles NW of Omaha and 75 miles SW of Souix City, IO.  Thus, while 'isolated' yet accessible. It is beautiful corn country and lots of polka music on the local am stations. Lots of Germans, Bohemians, and Polish folk up there. We called them "Krouts", "Bohunks" and "Poles" back in the '50's before the term 'politically correct' was coined. 

 

Note to the administrators, this is a history lesson, not an political statement!.

I can't imagine what a logistical nightmare this could be.  It's gotten to be such a big deal that the History Channel is going to be on-site recording the event for posterity.  Iola, Hershey, and Carlisle are bad enough, but they do this every year and they know what they are doing.  I'm imagining backed-up traffic for miles getting into Pierce NE, and parking being a complete cluster.  Think: the original Woodstock.  I'll watch the highlights and commentary on the History Channel!  If it were a MoPar dealer, I'd consider going just so I could tell people that I was there, but I don't want to be any where near this mess.

You might be right. And I just noticed you are in Hiawatha! ... I have kinda-kin in Hiawatha.

We moved to Hiawatha earlier this year after commuting from Topeka to Sabetha for three months.  My wife works part-time in Hiawatha so she knows a few people, but I don't know folks in Hiawatha.  I would have preferred to live in Sabetha since that is where I work, but the housing rental market is tight in small-town America (no one wants to risk renting out their house to strangers, only to have it trashed).  Very hard to get in contact with home owners looking to sell to discuss rental possibility, and then convince them that we will treat property well.  Current landlord has been great to work with: career National Guard. 

 

Landlord in Topeka pretty much an absentee slumlord.  Collected rent, never fixed any thing, and then withheld security deposit citing disposal of items left behind that were on-site when we took possession.  He even expected us to show the house for him while in process of moving out since he lived in Wichita and couldn't be bothered to do himself.  I noticed that some one finally moved in this summer after house vacant for 6 months.  Items warranting disposal still on-site.  I only hope that they didn't buy the house from him for any where near his inflated asking price.  Landlord asking $130K for $60K house: rotting front porch, leaky windows, cobbled wiring, poor amateur renovations of kitchen and bathroom, rotting plywood playcastle in back yard, dangerous dying huge maple trees in front yard, and overgrown bushes blocking ill-situated garage.  The house has gorgeous original woodwork on 1st story, and lots of potential, but was a $130K property only after pouring about $80K into it.  What was once a desirable upper middle-class neighbourhood when our cars were new is falling into disrepair as elderly homeowners moving into nursing homes and selling at loss to slumlords and unprepared home-buyers.

Sounds like small-town Kansas and a lot of landlords everywhere, yep.

 

My brother's niece is a department manager at Walmart there and her husband is something of an old-car guy and owns a wrecker service. He's a good guy and knows his work, so if you ever need a rollback to get 'er home, call Hook-Up Towing.  ;)

My mother tells me now that Laura may be the assistant store manager. ... I see her a couple of times a year at family events and haven't talked to her much about work. But I've always liked her a lot and I like her husband, Scott.
