    Howard Pipkorn auction

    Ok, since I found this on the site, I'll put it on here and HS Forums.

    Howard told me about this a couple months ago, but I did not want to post till it was on line.

    He told me "everything is going, wall to wall, floor to ceiling". There should be some interesting items there.

    Yeah, crappy job of promoting for sure. I know he sold the Virage mold recently and the guys have already popped a flyweight hull and deck out of it. It's a few miles from here.

    I'll call Howard if the auction site does not put something up.

    They are at Extreme Paint in Wyoming Mn. They also build the Vampire race hull.

    There is a note about "Carlson Contender and contents of 3+ semi trailers" at the end of thre listing. I don't remember a Contender when i was there (I left 3/90) but I do remember those 3 tractor trailer loads of stuff. There's a lot of junk as I remember, but also some DRs, Stackers, Twisters, and other engines. I remember them as being pretty rough, missing parts, not in running condition, etc. but they were there. Of course no telling what is there now, it's been 20 years. Most of the more modern engines (i.e. 80s-up) were picked over for parts or sold outright even when I was there.
