One thought on “It’s all over. The Krause Jeep collection is SOLD

  1. "Greetings & Salutations!" Why am I not surprised that the winning bids exceeded the opening bid for each vehicle or trailer? I believe had members of the California Military Vehicles Collectors and other groups had attended the auction, those final bids would have doubled or tripled and may more? Do the owners really make back for the parts and time to replace things really god full value? Maybe not? Imagine if Jay Leno the television talk show host had focused on military vehicles like antique and collectible civilian vehicles? Hopefully we are all caretakers and these vehicles will end up in a reputable military vehicle museum where vehicle pilgrims can make their pilgrimages to see? Maybe someone will the skill to illustrate could make paper diagrams for each part just in case they might want to build a "museum cop" for exhibit purposes? Sarge of Tujunga
