Corwin "Corky" Groth Retirement Auction and Neil West Estate Auction
This online only auction will be held at the Tractor Trauma Center in Eldridge Iowa featuring many of Cork's previous projects and a few he still thought he was going to get to. Times change and Corky has decided to spend more time with family and friends than in the shop.
Also included with this auction is the Neil West Estate Collection. Many of you knew Neil as a Retired John Deere Harvester Engineer who had an eye for the usual. His collection of Lanz equipment and other unique John Deere pieces were shown at several shows around the Midwest.
