Thumbs up Super Auction - OkCity - GM plant

If you are in the market for a Miller welder of all kinds, heavy work tables, vices, anvils. Over 600 items up for auction over three days, pictures of all items.
Chance of a lifetime.

It was an assembly plant for cars and suburbans, they shut down the entire plant. You haven't seen anything till you look at the entire list, pipe benders, Miller 225g welders, all kind of presses up to 75 ton. Drill presses floor and table.

Please stop this! I'm a pretty strong person, but we all have our breaking points. We're only human, mostly.
For the most part, my life is peaceful. The kids are raised & gone. The grandkids are a wonderful blessing.
Between you and Cutter posting these links to all the "eye candy", you're threatening my peaseful future.

(I'm working on a buddy of mine, who is not as strong as I am, or as sneeky
I told him if he went, "Do not let anybody steal all those work tables!! and maybe a couple more things. I'll make a list"
I can tell my wife I found em in the ditch. Yeh, that sounds good.)

Probably big buck from big boys looking for big profits down the road.
Poor guy might pick up a scrap though.

Everytime I think about the OKC GM plant I think about the "Boz" and him putting bottle caps in the hollow places in vehicles and laughing about the future owners trying to find rattles.

Sure did like watching that boy play the game though. Too bad he was a 'roid head.

I guess the Boz and bottle caps are probably another reason they are selling more Toyotas. And maybe why there is an auction.

Yep. I'd say you're right about that.
Shame. Graduated with a "B" in Business from OU, a year early.
Could have been a positive role model. No telling how many youth saw the wrong way to reach goals, and took it.

Well, I think ol' Bo kinda showed the Boz the light, or maybe it was lights out.
