Just one of those attempts to cater to the bigger is better idoliadgy that has taken over EMS. we cringe at campers place a commercial chassis buy stand in awe of a van with a nose produced by a major company. They look top heavy and clumperson to a to me but I will reserve judgment till I can walk around and look at on in person.

Default Yvette

Yvette has read this thread. Said she had a computer program that didn't recognize some of these old car names so it would correct her spelling. I understand because that happens working on TPC! Anyway she said she would work on improving the spelling. I got a chuckle out of that. I think some of us are going to go down to this auction. Should be fun to watch.

Hundreds of auction images added over last few days. Up to 746 lots. Short videos continue to upload. Yvette will have a preliminary list published soon, although again, itemized auction lots will not occur until April.







Bolt cutters, aisle 62 please.

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen a picture of the back of an M-M Guardian. After all that styling, smooth lines, and big rear overhang, do I see that the back door is really just....flat?

Interestingly, it has the same corner cut in the back door that a Eureka Hi-Boy of the same era does, too (see below). I guess to clear the overhang.

The combination lock would be awkward on a run though. Like I said hoarders are a different kind of people. He was after the unusual though. I would grab the pacer. Had a couple of then not bad cars

Looks like someone was using it as a mini storage shed!

The rear & back door of the Guardians are not flat. There is curvature, as you will better see in these photos.

Just an observation.....quite a few of the vehicles that were in the outside lot at the old Bargain Center site have been moved. Don't have a clue where, just not there anymore.

I've also been trying to find out (with no success yet) if anybody knows for sure where the auction is going to be held. Neither one of the properties currently housing the vehicles is big enough to properly "spread" them out for proper viewing and evaluation. An auction of over 700 vehicles is going to take some space, at least to my way of thinking. Not only for the vehicles, but one has to think there are going to be a lot of folks attending this thing. Just sayin'!!!!

I'll keep checking.
