A post from Kelli–
Last weekend I told you about the auction that Jason’s Grandma is having this weekend. I showed you some pictures, but I definitely didn’t show them all to you. I have about 50ish more, and that doesn’t even cover everything on the sale. Jason said that all week they’ve been having people stop by and check things out. They had a guy from Southern Illinois come up to check out the gas station that Jason’s Grandpa had bought at one time.
If you haven’t seen the sale bill, you can find it here–https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/3212a7_089617e228c44d15a0424ae733b27773.pdf
Here are the auctioneer’s photos– https://www.sweeneyauctionservice.com/09-15
And here is a link to my previous post–https://www.joscountryjunction.com/september-15-the-auction
It was kind of funny–I was looking through the auctioneer’s photos and I don’t think I’ve even seen some of the things that are on the sale….And I’ve been up there and through everything twice!
So below are more pictures. Lots of them are cars and tractors which I don’t personally know a whole lot about. Jason said that when they started, there were over 100 tractors. There are 68 on the sale, some went to family, and some went to junk. Believe me when I say there is really something for everyone.
If you have any questions, let me know and I’ll try to get Jason to sit and answer some questions, although I haven’t seen him much in a few days and work overnights for the next few nights, so I’m not sure that I’ll see much of him, but I’ll try to get him cornered and sat down to answer questions!
Here’s the gas station I was talking about–
This is a view down one of the aisles–
Lots of farm implements!
And lots of threshers–I think 20 will be on the sale!
Then there was this little red box for a jeep–Which his Grandpa never had, but maybe wanted to one day?
And cars–and cars–and cars–
And trucks too–Lots of those!
This one Jason called the Happy Hooker–I gave him a weird look and then he showed me–
An old Army Jeep–
Some Dozers and graders–
Some miscellaneous car parts and things….
A little cart…
Jason said that they used to use this to put tile lines in as the weight on the back would dig the ditch for the lines.
Some gas pumps–
Enough equipment to probably start a carpentry business…
Lots of steel wheels–
An engine to a fighter jet–
A completely unused manure spreader. I told Jason he should buy this and fix it up for Tractor Days and kids could sit in the back for the parade!
A helicopter frame—Because you just never quite know!
A big ole air compressor truck!
I don’t quite remember what this was, but it was made in 1853, which was neat enough on its own!
I think that this was a rock crusher, but I could be wrong!
If you need milk cans, we’ve got them too!
This old safe they believe is from the bank in New Albin–About an hour away. It’s where our favorite meat market is!
Made in 1849…yes, 1849!
Here’s a smaller little safe–
Here’s a bomb trailer from the Korean war–
And here’s the label on the trailer–
Jason said that this is a stump puller–
Lots and lots of cable–
I even remembered that this was a bandsaw all on my own!
There might be a few duplicates in there and for that I apologize, but it’s hard for me, a not very mechanically inclined person to remember what I’ve shown or not. Again if you have any questions, let me know!
