Weekend Edition – An Estate Auction in Central PA, Featuring Interesting Fords…

Recently Updated49

This will be the last post for this weekend, but I think it is one of the most interesting posts I have written about since the Lambrecht Chevrolet Company Auction I did last year (Which was an internet sensation…) but this is on a much smaller scale. Still, the Fords being offered are interesting, so take a look after the jump…

Welcome to another Weekend Edition here at the Hooniverse. When you think of Classic Car Auctions, like the ones that run in Arizona in January, you think of very polished classics that sell at ridiculous sums of money, often going unsold because the seller thinks his (or her) object of lust is worth more than the market will bear. Well, there is an upcoming auction in which each and every vehicle will be sold without a reserve, and it’s the The Paul J. Burt Collection Auction that will be held on Saturday, September 21st, in Lake Forest, Illinois. Let’s take a look at a sampling of some of the vehicles being auctioned off…

Weekend Edition – Ex-Danish Army 1988 Mercedes-Benz GD 240

g1

This weekend I’ve posted a couple of ex-Norwegian Army vehicles. This 1988 Geländerwagen is Danish, for a change. It too is army surplus, as the paintjob can tell a well-trained eye.

It’s pretty worn, but comes with service history as military vehicles often do. Check it out.

Video from the Mecum Auction Floor: Wrong car for this crowd – German drop-top edition

 bmw 328 mecum

Most of the machines that cross the block in a Mecum auction are muscle machines. Big engines and bold styling grab the crowds, and also grab their dollars. Sometimes there is a vehicle that arrives and is a bit unique. Occasionally this turns out well for the seller, and a nice profit can be had. This was not the case, however, for the owner of a 1997 BMW 328i convertible that rolled up to the auction floor.

It’s the wrong place for this car. In fact, it shouldn’t be an any auction unless it’s the type that has vehicles with grease pen writing on the windows. Click past the break to watch the oh-so-sad German sled make a short-trip to No-Salesville.

Long Shots: A Twofer Tuesday Special

So the location where this olelongrooffan schleps trailers is located almost right across the street from Motorsports Marketing world headquarters. Every morning as I pass by their cool retro office building, I always check out whatever cool shit is in their parking lot.

Hooniverse Wagon Wednesday – One of None; A 1948 Hudson Commodore Wagon

Welcome to another Wagon Wednesday at Hooniverse. I don’t think I have to tell you that we all love the Station Wagon here, but when I discovered this particular Wagon over at Hemmings, you bet I had to feature it here. Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting a one off, custom built, 1948 Hudson Commodore Woody Wagon, and it’s about to go up for auction…

Sold Off, Priced Accordingly – 10 Picks From the Saab Museum Auction

The Saab Museum, for sale. Some assembly required.

Hello, and welcome to yet another edition of Killing Saab Slowly With His Song. Today, it’s not the future of Saab that’s in jeopardy, but the past. We’ve (alright, some have) waited to know what will be the last Saab built; this listing enclosed here includes the first ever Saab built. In addition, here stands nearly every single milestone that has ever existed in Saab’s history.

It doesn’t matter if Saab is ever resurrected – if the museum’s contents are sold off to anybody who comes up with a qualified offer and scattered around the world, there will be no history onto which any future can be built on. I don’t doubt for a minute that the most important cars here will end up in good hands, but still in my mind they should remain together, for they are the cars that built the company – however sorry and farcical the end is.

Now that the required wrist-cutting with a Saab brochure is done, let me pick out the ten cars I would scavenge for myself were there a brick building and the required funds.

Hooniverse Weekend Edition – Is This Cord L-29 Worth Saving?

Not the car in the Auction. This image is used for illustration purposes only.

Going through the Clars Auction Gallery Catalog, there was one lot that was perplexing. At the very end of the last page was a Cord L-29, that was disassembled. I know that the L-29 Cord was one of those Classic Cars that is near the top of the collectible tower, right along side its stablemates Duesenberg, and Auburn. Would you save it?
