Interesting collection of vehicles. Thanks for sharing. The Cushman Autoglide and the Tetra 97 are most interesting. Did you get a picture of the info plaque for the Tetra 97?

They are selling everything at auction... LINK

I noticed that too, but I thought they were selling only 80 or so out of 100+. Are the ones indoors on display exempt from the fire-sale? Clearly most of the collection lives somewhere other than in the nice displays... Tom
