Seems like I am seeing more and more of these large collection going up for auction.
The owners bought much of this stuff when it was still affordable and now they have passed on and the family has no idea or interest in any of it.
Or in the case of one posted on the hamb recently the older guy finally realizes he will never get to all of it and decides to thin the herd.

Sometimes the best you can do is just inform those around you what some of it means to people like us and trust they do the right things when we pass. I'm going to have some projects around when I leave. What happens after I die with it will make no difference to me, but may make some like-minded people around here happy to get it. My daughter Holly is the executor of my will and I'm trying to teach her some things on value. She knows how I want it to go and I trust she'll do whatever she can to make it happen. I know she's got some sense. She's already got dibbs on my old trucks...

If I had money, I tell you what I'd do, I'd go to all of the auctions and become a
hoarder myself... I mean, on a much larger scale than now...

Not many vehicles worth having, 4-5, but what a bunch of old time speed parts! Most will sell for scrap prices because they probably don't know the value of them, like the Fenton intake. Thing about it, I could look at all the piles of parts there and I wouldn't have a clue to actual value either.

I don't know bama.
With the internet it's not hard to find out what stuff is going for these days. My friend and I were talking about this the other day.When I check sites for pricing I base it on what things sell for. Not what is being asked.
I used to spend a lot of time going to auctions looking for Antique furniture to repair and resell. And one thing that seemed to stand out was the fact that the "Little" items usually sold for more the they were worth vs the supposed "Big ticket" items. It seemed like many times people were afraid to jump in on the large item bidding because they figured it would go for high dollars.
It's a funny world.....

Agreed smallfoot.
I don't have anywhere near the stuff that I used to. And what I do have is mostly tools that my wife or daughters will keep.
When my heart crap really kicked in I decided that I wasn't going to leave my family with the burden of having to clean up my mess after me so I have really culled what is not needed.
I have a pile under my work bench listed right now on CL and would love for it to sell.
I went thru that ordeal with my Mom and it caused nothing but hard feelings......
