Following is the text of the ads that are running in various papers.  That's why it invites you to go to the web site, where you obviously already are.


  


After several days of fighting with the computer - a thousand dollars worth of new computer - and Godaddy's website builder I managed to delete the header and info so here it is again.

Note that on all the photo pages we load them at a fairly small size in order to allow people with slower connections to view the web site, as there is a ton and a half of material on here.  We also do not load color background pages and panels that repeat information from page to page so the photos and information load faster. 

DUE TO PROBLEMS WITH VIEWERS WITH SLOWER CONNECTIONS HAVING TROUBLE LOADING THE PAGES, WE HAVE HAD TO REMOVE SOME OF THE PAGES OF RECENT AUCTIONS AS WELL AS SOME SHOWING SOME OF THE GORGEOUS CARS WE HAVE SOLD IN THE PAST FEW YEARS.  If you would like to see some of those pictures I can email them to you along with prices realized. 

Also, I had a page up with a list of most of the auctions we have done in the last 30 years.  It also got pulled trying to get the web site to load faster.  I'll try to get it up again later. 

We have conducted most of the major collector car auctions and many of the high end antique auctions in Montana in the last 30 years.  Many of them were before digital photography and web sites, cell phones and wireless sound systems.  Some day when I get time I'd like to add some photos of those early auctions we did for David Burnham, the Marguerite Revear Collection, The Eva Brooks Estate, the Crane Mansion, The I G Baker decendency, Tony the Traders, The Maxine King Collection, etc., etc.  We did most of the big ones. 

It's fun to look back after 30 years at this and see how young I was and how much fun we've had in the auction business.  Sometimes not a lot of profit, but almost always a lot of fun.

Here is a picture of our new little sound and sale truck.  I had this built up by the Call Brothers in Helena and the Missoula auction was the first time we used it.  We've used it in Miles City, at the car auction in Laurel and a couple other sales. My Dodge 4 x 4 is too high off the ground to get in and out of easily so I had this low flatbed built.  We really like it.  I also bought a new Megavox sound system with two wireless mics and capacity for 3,000 people out doors that we used in Laurel for the first use. I don't know abut 3,000 people but it handles 500++++ easily.  No dropped signal on the wireless and clear as a brass bell.  My old sound system was getting old enough that I was getting worried about reliability so I bought the best of the best for a new one.

 We all have these matching jackets and caps. 



This is the registration line at the Redensek Auction last year. 





Here we are selling the last few cars at the Redensek Auction




Look good in all those red and black jackets, don't we? 
Easy to tell who is working for the auction company. 
No greasy bums on my crew!

THANKS TO THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED THE REDENSEK AUCTION IN GREAT FALLS in October of 2009.  

SELLING prices are posted on the Redensek Auction car list as well as with many of the pictures from that auction.  In order to keep the pages at reasonable size so they will load fairly quickly, we have deleted many of the pictures from past auctions that were on the site but the main pictures of the cars will remain up for a while.

This was one of the most successful and fun auctions we have ever had, lots of people went home with the car of their dreams and a good time was had by all!!  We had about 300 registered bidders from all the surrounding states and two Canadian provinces as well as Florida and California.  Cars went to Minnesota; Idaho, Florida & Wyoming but most stayed in Montana. The Studebakers--both the Hawk and the Speedster, stayed in Great Falls; the Auburn went to Havre, the MGTD to Joliet & the Huppmobile to Judith Gap.
