  • A little late, but Asa Hall sale pictures

    I was cleaning (err straightening) up earlier today and came across a CD that had bunches of pictures on it. I have uploaded about 60 images I took at the Asa Hall sale in September 2005. I am sure many folks saw some of these last year but wanted to share them for those that didn't.

    Thanks for the pics! I've been waiting for a while for pics of Asa's collection. Just curious, (I wouldn't think they did) but was Bumble Bee sold? I surely would think that it above others would stay in the family, considering its history.

    The very last pic is of a fire truck. Is that the one that Dr. Cade bought? I heard he got one from Asa's collection. Man oh man would love to have that water wagon!

    Lotsa really neat trucks!

        The Bumble Bee stayed, the '51 fire truck went to Dr. Cade, Sharon kept the Avanti and Asa was working on a M series (I think prewar) that was in the restoration shop when he passed away that I understand Sharon has now. Frank Drumheller may know more about this truck, I haven't talked to Sharon in about 4 months but perhaps we will see her in Reedsville.

                There were a fair number of bidders. I took my 12 foot enclosed trailer as I went to the sale at Asa's dad's place the day before and bought everything from boxes of wrenches to a riding lawn mower.

                I had not planned on buying any of the vehicles but bid on the '49 firetruck when he reduced the opening bid to $1000 and got no takers. My winning bid was the last one that I was going to place. In retrospect I should also have bid on the M-17 (I think it brought about $300) as well as the diesel Zip Van. At the end of the sale I bid $5 on a whole pile of stuff to get 2 big truck bumpers (one NOS) but told the auctioneer I didn't want the rest. Turns out there was some good stuff in the boxes and I think he got around $150 for the pile when all was said and done.

                    The firetruck looks real good! What are you planning on doing with it? I guess the crew cab Transtar was already gone before the auction?

                        Prior to the auction Bo Markham had already gotten the crew cab, Chester Bradfield got the '58 4x4 and '42 M-15 railroad truck, I got the '62 4x4 and Mike Burton the '45 M-15 C-9. I think Sharon donated at least 1 truck to a museum and Dr. Cade got the '51 fire truck (though it was still there at the time of the sale). Those are only the ones I was aware of, there may have been others.
