Pair of '38 Stude Coupe Express pickup (Projects). First one brought $30,000 and the second one brought $15,000. Goofy looking Panhard brought $22,000 and it was also a total project.

We drove out by Summit today around 1130, the crowd wasn't as big as I expected anywhere on the property, auction or cruise-in. I'm not really sure why I expected a larger crowd.

Drove by Avery also, there were quite a few folks there looking through the fence at things. There is a 1952 American LaFrance pumper on that lot that didn't attract any on-line bids as of late last night. I'll check later and if it still hasn't gotten any action I'm gonna throw a low ball up there and see what happens. Maybe I'll have a fire truck AND an angry wife!!!

Nice to see the Guardian proved me right, I thought $10,000 it went for $9,500. Haven't been following the auction we've been gone all day.

Haven't heard anything from Jeff and Derrick yet.

At least at $9,500, we know that the Guardian is not going to be parked under someone's carport to further deteriorate for the next 20 years! What a huge project that thing is going to be! I just hope that is restored correctly.

At least it's not going directly to the scrapper. Hope someone we know got it and will do a good restoration.

I doubt that a single car sold on this 2-day auction will be going to be scrapped!

Prices on everything were on the high end. The '47 S&S ambulance was probably one of the deals of the day at $3500. Looked to be a rust-free rig from the South-West that even had its original(rare) attendant's seat! A lot of these cars were from the South-West which makes me wonder if he didn't buy a lot of them from Desert Valley Auto Parts over the years.

Talked to Jeff and Derrick this morning, they both used the same word to describe the whole affair........CRAZY!!!!!

The 1952 American LaFrance that I tried to "low ball" went for $ 1,750, not a bad price but more than I would spend on it considering the heartburn it was gonna cause me with Barb.

As I have said before, NO ONE gets more money for project cars than Yvette Vanderbrink! She does a great job for the seller!

She has the secret down. Just like a auction in Nebraska , way above any value it should have. So now we know whose auction to walk away from. I have seen crazy before , it does my Hart good to know the community is as good as it is. Now I'm going to wait for her next one and see if she will take a consignments. That looks to be the way to move a car.

It was an enjoyable two days. While I didn't go for the professional cars, I did come home with a new project - a 1962 Studebaker Diesel with a Detroit 4-53 diesel engine. I also picked up a '62 Studebaker flatbed truck (gas) that came out of Montana with a much better body - plan is to make two into one.
