Default Big Ole Pile of Junk

I'm not sure if this is a valid listing. But I have an old farm just south of Calgary and there's 100 years of junk laying about. Here's a brief synopsis...


2 antique International trucks
3 junker cars
1 decent car

2 campers
1 boat
a Massey Fergusen tractor (very decorative)
hay rakes and farm equipment
tools...so many tools

trampolines
a d-40 k mobile well rig

glass insulators
hub caps
license plates
about a million fasteners
horse stuff
cow stuff
2 million books
pianos
tv's
lawn chairs
bbq's
100 tons of scrap steel


Prices are 100% negotiable and all over the place. For example the International trucks are $200. If you want to fill the truck up with junk they're free. If you're looking for something in particular, I can price it for you. But it all has to be seen.



It's kind of a mix of old and newer stuff. I need to keep it small but if you want to come out for a look on Saturday send me a message. It's about 45 minutes from down town Calgary...just east of the Okotoks turn off.

What are the beater cars and decent car? I'm wondering if they are worth fixing up/restoring.

I think beaters but there are some cool ones...I found out the Lincoln continental is banned from smash up derbies cause it's too solid and kills all the other junkers. The pedo van still has shag inside. I guess the other ones are are probably lawn ornaments. I have no paper work on any of them so likely just scrap at this point. The antique trucks are neat.



Some picker guys came out and filled a half ton with some cool stuff I hadn't even seen. The place is puking junk.

That would be cool I think someone is coming to get them tomorrow though. I'll let you know but there are some other really interesting looking settings out there. It could be quite dramatic in the right light. Just message me if you want to give it a go.

Hey, is this over now? The pile of junk is all gone?

We are looking for some old license plates for our son. He is collecting them and I noticed you had that listed.

Thanks.

Hey sorry for the late response...No really interesting license plates...the oldest was from 1974. Some cool hubcaps though.


And yes the books are pretty much down to the paperbacks...but oodles of them if you want them.



I still have the road grater, bull dozer and d-40 k well truck. Good deal if you take all three. And one really cool hay rake.

Can you send a picture of the hay rake and what do you have for cow junk?

Sorry I just gave away the last of three hay rakes on Monday. The scrap guy was eyeing it up so I just wanted it to have a home. Pretty much down to pianos and paper backs now. 103 tons of steel and still counting. Had to trash one of the campers, three cars, two vans, horse chutes, bull dozers and the grater. The oil well derrick found a home which was amazing. It's kind of sad but nice to be out from under the pile.

Do you have any old barn wood that can be salvaged? That stuff can sell at a pretty good price.

Yes there are a couple buildings that have some good looking barn wood. I have some tenants there too and I meant to ask them if they'd mind salvaging some of the wood. I will let you know for sure when I get back on Monday.
