It's a shame that Mr. Logue's collection couldn't be kept together. It would make a fine tourist attraction for this area if it were turned into a museum or some sort of display.

I apologize for the crude nature of myprevious comment. It just seems like a sad way to honor the legacy of Mr. Logue. Wait til he dies and then sell off an incredible lifetime collection- priceless as a whole, simple commodity when separated. I would hope my children would not do the same to me someday.

They should of built a museum or donate the tractors to a museum in his name. I think builting a museum out there would of been the thing to do. GREED has overcome! MONEY, MONEY,MONEY!

Justin1 you got it right. He spent a lifetime collecting these and it took his family a few short months to get them ready to sell. Is the money going to his favorite charity? Would have thought that would be part of the article. Probably just going into family pockets. Way to honor him.

Justin, these things happen when there is a death in a family where an estate has to be divided. I'm sure this was discussed with George in advance and was part of his will. You also have to remember that maybe his kids have no interest in that collection and the maintenance of it. I was lucky enough to have been given a personal tour of the collection several years ago and to watch his face light up as he told me all about each piece and showed me the equipment he had bought to make parts for them was fascinating. It was a great joy to him, but not to everyone. With luck, museums and other collectors will purchase these treasures and keep them available for others in the future.

Port, if it goes into their pockets, that is their choice and we should not look askance at it. If we claim to have a right to quarrel about how the proceeds are administered, then they should have the same right to challenge the way your estate is handled. This is a personal decision and should be respected instead of envied.

Is this even news or a shameless way of advertising the sale????
