Sold out

... or nearly so. All but three of the vintage military fighting vehicles are sold at Littlefield auction Story by Dave Boyce | Photos by Michelle Le

T

he bright and airy warehouses at the estate of the late Jacques Littlefield at 499 Old Spanish Trail in Los Trancos Woods will slowly empty of Mr. Littlefield’s huge collection of military vehicles now that the auction is over. Total receipts were $10.2 million, including for the sale of all the spare parts and 119 of the 122 vehicles on the auction block, said Amy Christie of Auctions America, the Indianabased collectible-vehicle auction house that ran the show. About 300 registered bidders and guests gathered on July 11 and 12. The action included bidding by phone and bidders from other countries. A Soviet SCUD-A mobile missile launcher sold for $345,000, Ms. Christie said. Among the five items that had minimum bids, a restored Sherman tank decorated with war paint sold for $345,000 and a

German World War II-era troop carrier sold for $1.2 million, she said. A Sherman assault tank and a German Panzer tank were not sold and will travel with the 80 or so vehicles not up for auction and headed to the Collings Foundation in Stow, Massachusetts. All auction proceeds go to the foundation, Ms. Christie said. The nonprofit is assembling a 60,000-square-foot building for indoor display of the vehicles and has plans for an outdoor amphitheater at its 69-acre home, Executive Director Rob Collings told the Almanac in 2013. Re-enacted battles could include scenes from the Battle of the Bulge in Germany, Desert Storm in Iraq and the Korean War, he said. There will be gunfire, but not with live rounds. All but 12 of the auctioned Continued on next page

TANK AUCTION continued from previous page

vehicles with weapons had had them permanently disabled. Sales of vehicles with working weapons are final only after a background check and months of dealing with federal agencies, said Mark Barnes, an attorney and international arms dealer on site for the auction. Sales to foreigners require export licenses, he said. For the next six weeks, passersby on Los Trancos and Alpine roads may encounter trucks loaded with the purchased military vehicles. They’ll be headed to a regional staging area for shipment to the successful bidders worldwide. Bidders

John Fink, 62, traveled from Auburn, Indiana, to buy a spare engine for his British Chieftain tank, for which he paid $30,000 10 years ago, he said. (The auction included a Chieftain with an estimated price of $50,000 to $75,000).

Mr. Fink’s tank is operable, but he no longer drives it, he said. While it’s physically demanding work, “it’s fun to keep it drivable,” he said. He also owns antique cars, he said, but gets a bigger kick working on the tank. Mario Saviano, 62, is a dental technician from Salinas and had come to the auction with a friend. “We’re interested in purchasing a vehicle,” he said. A wheeled vehicle, but armored, he added. Tracked vehicles are too hard to work on and opportunities to drive on a road are very limited, even with rubber tracks, he said. With a wheeled vehicle, there are more options. As a child, he built models of armored vehicles. He was standing in front of a British Ferret, a light-duty reconnaissance vehicle used, he said, to scout front lines or look for potential defensive positions. It’s got wheels, but he wasn’t interested. “It’s too small and I’m too big,” he said. He said he may bid on a Saracen, a British command

vehicle. Nick Duguid of San Jose was there to begin his goodbyes. He’s been a volunteer at the Littlefield Collection for about six years and has ridden in the vehicles at shows and civic events. He hasn’t driven them because he never learned to use a manual transmission, he said. Mr. Duguid also built models of planes and tanks as a child, and heard about the collection in high school. At the moment of this interview, he was standing in a Littlefield warehouse in front of an American halftrack — a truck, sometimes fitted with machine guns, with tank-like tracks in the rear and rubber tires in front. “Half-tracks are kind of neat,” Mr. Duguid said. “They’re an anachronism, tried in World War II and abandoned.” In theory, the tracks in the back would allow the vehicles to traverse rough terrain while the wheels in the front would provide better and easier steering, but the theory didn’t work out as planned, he said.

He’s been a passenger. “When you’re riding in the streets of San Jose and not getting shot at, it’s kind of fun,” he said. What did he see when he looked around the room? “I see Jacques,” he said. “I see passion. I’m going to miss this, coming up here to see them. It’s kind of

coming to see all this history in one spot.” A

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may

charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714573-1965 for information regarding the trustee's sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-13-601371-BF . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of California Civil Code.
