A crabby neighbor here had an old Super M in his barn yard for years just sitting, was a decent tractor when parked for a bad rear tire. Any time when asked about it he would run them off. One day last fall I saw that they were cleaning up the yard and I caught him in the yard so I asked again about it. He got all grouchy and walked away but did say to come back later. A few weeks later and still not being able to get in touch, I saw it was gone. asked another neighbor and found out they rented a skid loader and shoved it into a roll off scrap container! So much for being a helpful neighbor.

There was a very early 9n across the road from my house as a kid. The old dingbat wouldn’t sell it and would put the run to anyone who asked. Finally my father saw her son cleaning the yard and asked about it. He said it was for sale but wanted crazy $$$. My dad asked about buying parts... he got all the “old” parts, dash and steering box, bald axles, dog legs, trans cover with no dip stick... all the good stuff for $100 but buddy wouldn’t budge on selling complete

I think the grouchy buggers are afraid some one might get a nickle's worth of good from something they don't use anymore.

Those guys that wont sell something until it rots to the ground are everywhere, seems like. And the value never drops until it hits the Scrapyard scale, unfortunately, while the condition turns poorer with every passing day. After you have collected up outside stored equipment for decades you can sure see what time does to equipment stored in the big shed.
Folks should know that selling these items and using the funds before they pass on is the best way to go, you never know when that day will come and if its that important to own its equally important to save, in their shed or somebody else's.

We have a person like that in our city.Matter of fact,he was featured on American Pickers last year.If I mentioned his name,some of the steam folks might recognize it.The woods near his home are full of old trucks,steam traction engines,tractors,parts,etc.He won't sell any of it.The boilers are decaying as each year passes.Pretty soon,most of it will be worthless.It's sad to see.
