Can you please put this in to context?

IE Tim is closing is doing a tidy up or closing the business?

Some of us don't understand what is going on to cause this sale.

Thanks in adavance

Hi Robin,

I gather it is stock reduction, but I haven't asked Tim why he's undertaking an auction at this time.

All I know is I'm not going to be able to be there!

Mike

Mike,

Thank you for your response, as usual, sadly, if I had read the pdf I would have found an explanation like you did!

Shame there aren't pictures for each lot with numbers, or perhaps I have missed them somewhere.

Some interesting items that i am sure he wants to unload and move along.

As a local to Tim (a lazy 100k's away from me) he is NOT closing down just thinning out his stock and cleaning up the area. I like other MLU Aussies particularly we Victorians have had the pleasure to climb through his sheds, shipping containers and hidey holes to full fill our restoration dreams and see first hand the well catalogued and extensive collection.

Their is a hell of a lot more stock and I will confirm that Tim is not closing down at least that is what he told me.

Cheers,

Dave.

Listing, plus a host of piccies. That ARV is - to me - the ultimate tank-toy!

Cheers,

Thanks Hanno,

The ARV is very complete, a good runner, and has an interesting service history. I had the chance to look over it in some detail in company with Tim last time I was in Aust.

Will any of our Australian comrades be attending this auction? Looks like there will be no chance of intenet or phone bidding, on site only is how I read this..

John

John,
When I saw Tim Vibert recently, he said there was no internet or phone bidding, so you would have to get someone to bid for you at the auction. So you have it correct.

regards, Richard

Thanks Richard, that was my take on it and Tim confirmed that today. Were you planning to attend Dave?
