I would totally buy this (currently: $100, reserve not met) if it wasn’t all sold as one lot. Actually, I would still totally buy this, but I lack the apartment space, truck, or friends to move and store 10,500 pounds of street signs. I’m not sure what I would do with it, mind you, but I’m thinking extremely elaborate, neighbor-alienating roofing or aluminum siding. As it is, my desire for an Ashland street sign will have to wait until I can figure out something like Groupon for auctions of random public junk.
And come to think of it, this ain’t a bad price for a 1979 Bombardier snow plow. It starts on a jump! Be the hero of your block! And if you drive it to work during a blizzard, you can write it off on your taxes!*
