Default Military Collection from an estate in Dundee

A couple of my friends are doing this auction on April 27 in Dundee. I will be working the auction as well. Some SUPER cool stuff.

I lived 10 minutes from here and had no idea this stuff was even there. The military vehicles and guns are amazing. My favorite from the pictures is the 1961 AMC M422 Mighty Mite. Too cool. Glad I don't have the money or space to buy anything...

Here is a link to American Eagle Auction & Appraisal Company who is handling this auction. Click on Upcoming Auctions to see all of his listings.

Here are the direct links for this event on April 27.

Some very cool stuff indeed. I sent the links to my wife's uncle who has a pretty extensive Model A and Model T collection in case he is interested in the Model A (or anything else shown). I may have to hitch a ride and head on out there with him if he decides to go.

Showed this to my pops. He needs to add to his collection....


Edit...

Apparently my dad helped with some of this and knows about it. I remember meeting the owner "Mike" many years ago.

I don't have the inside scoop on this stuff, but I would doubt there are any reserves since it is an estate. This is going to be a massive auction. I am dying to just get there to see all this stuff.

They will take absentee bids if you can't be there. Contact either Kenny at American Eagle Auction or David at Braun and Helmer Auction Service for that. I have personally never seen stuff like this in person and I have been to some pretty amazing and weird auctions. This is one I am looking forward to!
