Don Dougan estate auction marks the end of an era
The large, grungy, three-bay shop was stocked with every tool, engine hoist, and welding rig anyone could ever need. The land around the shop was crammed full of old cars and parts. And whether they were waiting for the day they would find their way into the garage, or halfway through the process, every car and truck had a story to tell.
My dad and I went to Stilwell over the weekend to check out Don’s estate auction. And in a way, the whole affair was sad. We were seeing a lifetime of passion being pieced-out and sold off in the course of one afternoon. Another bit of history gone. Another era comes to an end.
Of course, I took a few pictures for you, which are in the slideshow below. Or click on this link to see a better version of the slideshow.
