Auctioneer Notes
Lyle and Ken Parker have spent years gathering and building a fantastic collection of steam engines, gas tractors, mining equipment, sawmills, implements, parts and anything else that fell into their laps. Growing up both brothers and their father played key rolls keeping these iron dinosaurs from their demise in the scrap yards during the second word war. All of us in this hobby are very fortunate to have gentleman like the Parker men who seen the value in preserving out-dated, "non-valuable" tractors and equipment and drug home load after load! The Parker Family has decided its time to pass their collection on to new care takers at absolute auction. Friends, this will be a fantastic sale and one that offers something for everyone, make plans to attend today! I look forward to seeing you all at the Parker Ranch in Sandy, Utah. - Gib Thurman
