Yesterday I also went to a sale to buy antiques, it was Ontario's Chapter annual Coca-Cola yard sale in Brampton. I was really disappointed when I got to the sale this year and found out I was an hour late. I was told it started at 9am when it actually started at 8am. Not sure what early bird deals I missed out on, but tried to make the best out of the sale.
I managed to get this truck there, only because I arranged pick up before the show. I have been trying to buy this exact truck for atleast two months and finally own it. This is the best condition most complete Lincoln Coke truck I have ever seen and really really wanted it. Fellow member wanted fair amount for it, so I told him when I was able to sell my truck I would buy his. I was able to find buyer for mine, but didnt wanna sell mine until I had bought this one. Took me months to finally meet fellow member again (he has busy schedule, so had to wait to sale), but managed to kill two birds with one stone.
When I got to the sale I bought this truck, I then bought a few other small buys when I was waiting for the buyer to come and buy the other Lincoln truck off me. He lived right in Toronto and wanted me to deliver, but his location is about 3h out of my way, so I was able to get him to meet me at the yard sale, and successfully do a Lincoln truck trade up!
I now have a better condition Lincoln truck for my collection that I will enjoy for many many years, and the guy I sold mine two gets to enjoy having his first Lincoln Coke truck ever.
