So who's going to have a guess at what the Blackstone sold for?
A really good thing to note was the number of young people bidding throughout the sale
Very encouraging for the preservation of rusty stuff

Cheers Scott
PS: there was a sausage sizzle.

Glad they had the sausage sandwhiches on the go for you but sadly no hot chips.

Scotty we are going to have to have a good talk about what is a ute and what is a flat bed truck.

How much did it sell for? If I had to guess I'd say 5k.

In 2002 we visited Port Neill SA to look at Vic Fauser's museum which included restored Blackstone engines, a line up of each size.
Vic was not a well man then, wonder what happened to them?

Wow, that seems to be a bit of money, is that because it's an early one??? Or somebody just wanted it. Wish I had a few in the shed.
