Wish I had the room back in the 70s. I would of never sold a car or scrapped one and would of had a big garage full of the stuff I tossed or sold off because of room. I only have a basement full or mopar parts. Did not see any Hemi parts have to take another look at the pictures again.

I wanted to go after the blue barracuda. But this auction has been highly publicized and I have seen ads for it everywhere. Now I don't even think it's worth it to come out there and try to get the car...stuff is going to go for insane prices.

Re: 'Mopar Hoard Auction' in SD, 465 photos mostly Mopar. - 02/09/18 08:40 PM

The last Mopar auction they had was with the Hot Rod Swinger, that car went for insane money, same thing is going to happen here. If you want an obscure pickup or trashed parts car you might do ok. I am wondering how they will sell the engines/blocks, as a lot or each one?

Re: 'Mopar Hoard Auction' in SD, 465 photos mostly Mopar. - 02/09/18 08:47 PM

Probably high prices like that old Chevy dealership hoard of a few years ago. Some nice stuff....dig the CB handle hanging from the challenger mirror. Tunnel Rams galore!

I went to the Rapid City area once to buy a parts truck. The seller had a line of vehicles on his property but the next door neighbor had a hoard. I asked about it and I'm pretty sure he said it was about 200 cars, but he could have said 2,000 cars. This was over a decade ago so I can't remember exactly. Either way it is a lot of cars and there were other people in the area who had lots of cars parked on their property as well.

Wow.....hoarder for sure.

What gets me, this guy lived 3 miles from bf nowhere SD. He didn't find all that locally. Just the time, effort, gas, etc., to accumulate everything blows my mind.

Then don't do anything with any of it.

Sad.

it depends on when it happened.
If he bought the vette in example in 1989 it was worth still a lot while a already worn out 69 Charger non RT wasn't worth much at all.

Depending on the time when it happened it made sense

I took the wifegod to Sturgis in 2005 and we stayed at a house in downtown Rapid City. One night we took a walk around town and on the street was a 68 Dart GT convertible just sitting there with on tire off and on a jack stand! eek Neighbors did not know who owned it, been there a while. After riding the bike around town there were still old cars everywhere. up

Skipped thru it, looks like 80=83 Imperials inside, may have been some Mirdas. I guess at some point he just emjoyed looking at the old cars he had, just like art. Must have had a lot of energy in his time or sons to help out. Love the land. I hope to live someplace like that my final years.

Quite a collection... but every time I see something like this makes me not want to hoard because in the end you can't take it with you. Just think how much of that sat for year untouched when someone else could have been enjoying it.

I talked to Yvette, the auctioneer. She said that at most of her auctions, the cars sell for more money than they are worth.
She anticipated that this auction will be the same.

Been following this for a couple of months now, they finally started to post some pictures.

OK - my auction rant because I just organized an auction (Snobar auction) almost exactly like this...

Everybody always posts "stuff is going to go for stupid money because it's an auction!!!" and I've found that to mostly not be true. The good cars will (Road Runners, E-Bodies, Chargers) go for good money but bet parts and parts cars will be good deals. The auction is not close to anyone so bringing cars home and shipping them will be a huge challenge. They said they are not going to put parts online which will hold the values down on them. Bottom line is it's a crap shoot and you never know. Debating whether to go or not, it's a 22 hour drive each way and hard to bring more than one car back.

On the other hand some South Dakota guys just came out and bought all the Hemi stuff at the Snobar auction out here, maybe I should return the favor work

I've thought about this before. It may or may not be true. Those cars may have been something that could have ended up scrapped in a couple of years if someone else had them. They may have just been old cars to many people at the time they were collected.

It's hard to say if a hoarder is helping to preserve the number of cars still in existence or if they are preventing others from owning them. I would say the former is more likely even though the condition of them may suffer more.

Are there lots of people out there looking for old cars that do not have one now and could they find them somewhere else?

Your right also, because who knows where they would have ended up if not there and who knows what would have happened to them. I assume this person wasn't attempting to sell any of the cars and no way he would have ever built them all or used all the parts either. Luckily they ended up somewhere not like where I live where cars will rot into pieces.

Most of us if we had the space in the old days would of had a yard just like this one. Most do not want to think of the cars they parted out that would be highly collectable. Most scrapped them because there were no repair parts in the olds days and ended up being donor cars. This guy had his favorites. Once people find out this guy collected old mopars a bet a lot of locals were seeking him out to buy there cars and he was willing to put the cash out.

I would buy it in one shot and move there! I see that and I think of that cartoon where the character swims through gold coins. I would slowly sell it most of it off and keep a few select cars.

Re: 'Mopar Hoard Auction' in SD, 465 photos mostly Mopar. - 02/14/18 07:15 AM

seen this posted on facebook...

I work with some amazing families and collections. We have quite a few coming up, and room for more.
Here is the Mopar story- Who was this man- Alan Rietz.
See you at the Auction!
MOPAR or No CAR.. The Alan Rietz Collection

They say the most expensive hobby starts with 98 cents, playing with Hot Wheels cars.
Those vibrant colors, playing in the dirt, Alan couldn’t wait till he could have a car of his own. The Bright Orange 1970 Dodge Challenger was his High School car, his first car and from then on he was hooked. From then on, it was MOPAR or NO CAR. Growing up on the plains of Northern South Dakota, there are miles of roads that seem to go on forever, the perfect place to perfect Alan’s need for speed. Linda Rietz, his wife of over 30 years, remembers he was a football star that loved to drive fast. Linda was kind of a “Nerd”, and it was a blind date when she met Alan. That 1970 Dodge Challenger was a hot car, and how fast it would go. “Alan, was a quiet person, but when it came to cars, they seemed to bring out his wild side and he loved horsepower.” Alan went to college at Northern State University for Industrial Arts but the family farmed called and he started farming by Mansfield, South Dakota. Linda and Alan were married in 1985. Linda remembers that every chance Alan could buy a car he would. They spent their years going to car shows, swap meets, and buying cars in South Dakota. They loved to go to Midwest Mopars in the Park. Alan had his trusty pocket guides and on the hunt for parts. Alan absolutely hated to see a Dodge or Plymouth heading for a Demo Derby or Dirt Track and would rescue them and bring them home for a future project.
There were some cars that Alan had on his “wish list”. Linda remembers that he tracked down the rare 1970 Road Runner convertible in Mellette, South Dakota. This rare 1 of 824 ever made was sitting behind the owner of the Chrysler dealer in Mellette, SD, which is long closed. The rare Ivy Green Metallic, White top and interior, coded 383 V8 was the personal car of the owner and in need of a motor. Linda remembers them pulling the car down Hwy 281 the 12 miles home. They put a 440V8 in the car out of a cop car. Linda drove the Road Runner to work and it went fast. The convertible was great in the South Dakota Summers, but being so petite, it was hard to clasp the power top down. While he still kept his High School Cars, the 1970 Dodge Challenger and 1970 Cuda, another goal was to buy a 1970 Dodge Super Bee 440 V8 6 Pack car. Linda says Alan loved that car as it was a screamer. They took it to area shows and on trips. He would go car hunting with his Buddy Doug Rush and they brought home parts and projects. Linda always wondered what he would do with all the cars, and didn’t mind him buying them, as long as the bills were paid. She actually encouraged the hobby, as it made him happy and they had a great time in the cars.
I asked Linda if he sold anything. “He never would sell anything. But, he would trade with someone. If he knew that you were going to cut something up, he wouldn’t trade with you. But if you were going to restore it, then he would. People would stop all the time and ask to buy cars and parts, but unless he knew you, the answer was always “No “. The Rietz Family had many pheasant hunters that would come from all over the US and hunt on their farm, including some MOPAR collectors. They would get a chance to look at the cars, but not the chance to buy. There are a few Corvettes and later Model Imperials in the collection. Linda said these weren’t added till it got harder to buy his MOPARS.
About 3 years ago, he lost his car buddy Doug, and Alan slowed down on the buying. They were building a drag car and that project stopped as well. Alan kept farming the family farm, and working in his shop. Linda always wondered if his cars were a big deal or worth anything, but Alan always said that it wasn’t junk and there were many valuable and desirable cars and parts. One day, Alan went out to the shop, as usual, but didn’t come back in the house. He died from an accident in his shop. This tragic loss led the family to wonder what to do with all of Alan’s cars, parts, and guns. The family called Yvette VanDerBrink, VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC, after some recommendations from friends and hunters. Yvette went and met with Linda and couldn’t believe the MOPAR Hoard. Road Runners, Cudas, the Super Bee, Satellites, Furys, Chargers, Power Wagons, Aspens, and hundreds of rare parts. “Just turning into the farm, I knew this was something special.” Yvette Says. “They were everywhere and in every building. You could tell that he was a true collector, the farm machinery was outside and the cars were inside the sheds.” So the work started on getting things ready for a series of auctions for the Rietz collection. VanDerBrink started tagging and making a preliminary listing that will be updated and posted to the website. It’s going to be a great weekend. Here’s Dates to remember:
The Farm Machinery Sale will be Saturday, March 24th, at 10AM
The Alan Rietz Gun Collection- Friday, June 8th, 2018 4PM during Mopar Preview 10-7:30PM
The MOPAR auction will be held on Saturday, June 9th, 2018. 9AM
Friday June 8th, 2018 will be the MOPAR Auction preview and the gun collection will be also be sold at 4PM. Enjoy some South Dakota Hospitality and bid on one of Alan’s Gun collection. There are many Winchester Long guns, along with Colt handguns, and more. FFL guidelines apply to bidders. Then come back on Saturday June 9th at 9AM to kick off the MOPAR cars & parts, and motorcycle auction. The auction will be held LIVE, in person, at the farm by Mansfield, South Dakota, rain or shine. If you can’t make it to the auction, the vehicles, and an assortment of rare parts will also be available for online bidding. There are hundreds of motors, sheet metal, and more parts, and guns, that will be ONLY for ON-SITE bidders. “This is truly an amazing collection. If you are a MOPAR or Gun collector you won’t want to miss this big auction weekend. Most of all, Linda and Alan didn’t have children, the cars were their children. Linda and the family want them to go to good homes that will treasure them like Alan did.” Plan to be in South Dakota on June 8th & 9th for the Rietz Collection Auctions. All will be sold NO Reserve. For Inventory, Pictures, Terms, and more details on this and other auctions www.vanderbrinkauctions.com or 605-201-7005. See you in South Dakota!
