Default It's back and he's still NUTS! (Case Traction Engine)

The 60 case is back on ebay and he wants a 130,000.00 he just out of his mind # 130224211241. I am thinking something like 20,000.00 is just about the right $$$$$ iam thinking that hes just going to keep this engine for a long time if he add's a lot of water and it grows in to a 110 he just may get what he wants !

out of pure curiosty i called him a few minutes ago... i asked him if it was a mistype or something, he flat out told me if i didnt like the price quit looking at it.. nice guy. HA. gets better, he says hes never operated it but has owned it for several years, 3 of the flues have been puttyed in, the crown sheet needs replaced and the grates are good. kinda odd to me...

and he also informed me that he has seen them sell for 110,000- 175,000 bucks... now i think this guy seems to be an idiot. no offense to anyone.. but the real idiot is the one who buys it..

the guy also said hes having a boiler inspection done in a month... and the boiler also needs a few stay bolts and rivets.. laides and gents.. i dont think it will pass....

im not a professional but... this is stupid. plain flat out stupid.

I think the seller needs a good whack with that "original" coal shovel to bring him back to reality.....

i had to call him too, after all the mumbo jumbo was over with, i told him i was going to offer him a reasonable offer for what i need it for. i told him i was thinking of opening a bbq place and needed something to smoke bbq with and this would be the thing and he hung up on me. i thought it was a good idea.

Michael,
I think you're idea's pretty funny! A friend of mine with a half-scale told me one time his garbage collector looked at his half-scale, and told him "You're gonna win Memphis in May BBQ Cook-off for sure with that grill!"

I bought a 60 HP Case back early 2007 off e-bay, missing half the traction components...but didn't pay $60,000 for it!

You ever get up to the Adams TN show? I see you're in Nashville TN....

Mike M

hi mike
yes i go to Adams TN when i can, didn't make it last year though. i try to atend most all around here in TN, i also go to the tri state show,fla,ga,nc. its not the same at adams show after the ohio misshap,the year that happend the BI liked to had a cow with one engine it had several rivets missing and steam leaking made him put the fire out right then i realy got laughed when the owner of it said ITS BEEN LIKE THAT FOR YEARS. did not know how dangerous it was till the insp. told us. ya i miss all them steam engins. i remember the first show they had man was it great esp. the prade of the tractors,(EPA WOULD HAVE A FEILD DAY NOW LOL). the best one i remember was a few years back when a man drove his steam tractor to adams i think he was from clarksville. i remember billy and alot of the older men with their steam tractors that have passed on to steam heavn,or not there any more maybe 1 or 2 of the grandkids. hope they can carrie on the tridition. i miss talking to the older ones learend alot from these guys.i had the privilage of hauling the 65 CASE that sat under the sign at MID TN CASE on what is now I-24 by philips metals. i hauled it when mid tn sold out, to a man in ern tn and then it was sold at auction again and i hauled it to beaver dam ky for the new owner that i can not remember his name. i grew up in upper east tn around steam and always loved it, my all time favorit is the Southern 4501 now in chat. tn sitting at the shop in a mess, always said if i won the lottery i would donat the money to have her fixed back like it was. its sad to see her like that. ya there is a long story behind that engine that has to do with me. later keepm steamen

It might just be that HE was the one who overpaid and now he is trying to get his money back!

You could buy a case with a shot boiler cheap and pay to have a new boiler made and still come out cheaper than buying his...
