Caught the tail end of an estate auction in the mountains of Vermont while chasing features for the paper today. An antique car and tractor collector died and then his widow sold them all to men like Doug here on a hill in the rain this morning. Almost everyone said they were going to restore their purchases but when I asked Doug what he would do with this chipped up B61 Mack truck he said he was going to put it in his front yard. “No power steering, it’s got a 450 lb. push though,” he said. “You had to be a real human being to drive a truck like this.”
