Default Slim Burge Auction, Creston, Iowa

Slim had his auction yesterday. Weather was fine, and the crowd was standard . I was after the D, but got a bad case of the cheaps when it sold nearly last thing. I had saved my money for it, and let is go for $1,800. I wanted to bid again, but Merv allows no time to think, it's either bid or sold. They did not start it, which always peaves me. Some hiccup with it, ya right I always misinterprete this for some misanthropic reason.
Lukey Larry showed up and won the 3 hp Deere for a reasonable price.I had the bid at 500 on the Associated, and an whose on how much battle which was occurring all day insued, and instead of agreeing to $600, I stuck my foot in my mouth and said it was 500, he was about to say sold, then they started bidding again, and it went for $1,600. The 1 1\2 Gade went for $1,500.

We were all bidding on the $25 (every thing started for $25) LB with add ons, but when it his $175, I leaned over to make sure it was not cracked,in wonder of what was wrong, and that made Merve mad, so sold it was .
The FBM SALT block went like 140, and the 3 hp needing help around $125.
I bought the rusty headless I won for my thread on using water to unstick rusty pistons, its going to the pond later ,for $25, and found the carb in a bucket down the line. All the junk had engine parts in them from one end to the other. Who knows how that happens.
The good headless went around $500, trucks, mag igniter, nice engine.

I had made the Aermotor rocker arm years ago, it is brass. It went for $1,500 .
All day it was typical 83 yo auctuoneerness , he kept saying show me your number once, and I will have it, which he use to be able todo, but it seamed like he kept getting them wrong. So the crowd helped the clerk by always clarifying who had the bid, and what there number was, and how much. I only got screwed once, they were selling on the trailer , and no one removed anything, and when he went around the edge, they kept going back around and resold some of it . One old wiskery fellow who would not allow his picture taken said to let them have it, as it brought more than he paid, and he had the item he wanted pulled out.
In all it was a fun day, except for all the people charged for things they did not buy, and the people who bought things not on their tickets and all the people who hung around for the fictitious barbecue the auctioneer had said was going to be after the auction,hmm.
I got to fallow the junk man home so I could continue buying engine parts out of the buckets he bought.
Now I really do not thunk anyone needs to respond, nor start a bitch fest, we all know. For those that seen the add in the GEM for the sale,and said "no way", just pat yourselves on the back and say "no pains in my heiney", and be done with it. Most of it sold fairly well, as Slim and tooty had a lot of friends and none of the mistified bidders knee who the auctioneer was, but they all kept asking me if I did.

The larger Economy buzz saw was canibalized, but very nice and ran well.It went for $1,600 and the 6 hp FBM auto buggy built in 1982 was very well done,went for $2,600 to the family.
My load was sparce, as I was saving space and money for the D.
The triple axles are torsion style 7,000#, and had under 1,000 miles on them, for less than the state sales tax on new ones.
I should have stayed on the super nice 630 JD, for around $2,750. Dumb of me.
