HUGE AUCTION - Ken Robinson Collection

Recommended Posts

Paying sales tax in Massachusetts negates the sales tax in NY so I come out 2.5% on the plus side buyer fee is 15% on site less the 2.5% I save on tax so a buyers fee of 12.5% is the same as Mecham or RM auctions. On the down side CRG can charge up to 25% fee depending on payment method.

How do you save 2.5%?

15% in person goes directly to Auction plus 6.25% MA Sales tax not sure if they do a city tax but if they do that is probably another 1 or 2%. If not just the premium and state tax comes out to 21.25%. Not being a math wiz, it looks like at least $21.25 for every $100 spent so if you buy a truck for $5000 you would be paying an additional $1062 for it for a total of $6062.50. Last I knew when I was buy from RB if it sells for more than $2500 it is 2.5% and 10% on items that sell less than that.

Just about CRG and the auctioneer making $$$ it's a combined fee for the 2 companies. Heck of a lot of money. My interest is in the '16 AC and the late 30's AC.One of the first and one of the last. For me it' a ferry ride and a few hour ride there so it's an easy trip.

Mike, you don't have to drag it all the way home right now. I know a place in N.E. Indiana that you can let stuff set until Wendy drops her guard.....

may just take you up on that,I'd love to have one of those D30's

Mike,

I don't think my old men will let me get rid of my D model. But it will surely make you a good one. All there all complete with heavy axle and air brake. It slipped out of my mind that we had it..

There was one close by here that I lost track of and supposedly it got scrapped too.This was 20 years ago,I spotted it behind the fence of a junkyard near Washington,IA.I stopped and asked about it,but it wasn't for sale,it was being used to erect a sign,it had a knuckle boom crane on back of it,and only 20k miles,damn solid,just faded.It belonged to a guy from Marengo,IA,it went back there and I haven't seen it since,tried tracking it down,but from what I could gather,it had been scrapped.

does anyone know if what kind of shape the trucks are in? Did this fellow have them running or have they sat for years? I like that red lj-swx

Most likely like the KEMP auction. Some long idle and some probably easily brought back to life. Paul

Here is the auction catalog.

Interesting that the LJ #1 wrecker has a chassis number of 4XXX. Either the listing has the wrong picture or the frame has been swapped at some point.

Thanks, now I've got to bring more money, a bigger truck and trailer and help.

8 are stacked and welded together for 2/3 rds of my shop, So since I need to get 2 more, it'll be best if they're filled with AC's and AC parts

Hey that is a bunch of BMT members all in one place at the same time. What if Something happened? We better get some insurance on this gathering just in case...Dam shame its the same time as Hershey, where I'm headed Wednesday. Stopping a the Mack Museum on the way out on Wednesday which I am stoked to do but would love to look these trucks over just once...

Dang.

I'll be up early Friday morning . I'll take the ferry to New London and almost a straight shot from there.

This auction is making me miss Hersey the first time since 1982, at least my buddy will be using my spots. Paul

I am not sure which day I can get down to preview. I believe it will be an interesting auction.
