Hundreds bid on and bought vehicles at a Sergeant Bluff car auction

Hundreds bid on and bought vehicles at a Sergeant Bluff car auction

It's a sight, you usually don't see all at the same time. More than 300 vehicles were up for auction, and those auctioneers had a goal to sell one per minute.

We stopped by the live bidding this afternoon to see if they met that goal.

From four wheel drives, convertibles to trucks, this was the view of Saturday's car auction at a farm field near Sioux Gateway Airport.

Dozens and dozens of vehicles that were collected by the late Jon "Jack" Jolin, a local business man who passed away three years ago in 2014.

"This was the better part of a collection about four decades of vehicles, as his heir said, if it had a motor in, he loved it."

John Seuntjens, owner of Midwestern Land and Auction, said this event filled with many interested bidders buyers spending several hundred dollars on each vehicle.

"A lot of people knew Jack Jolin for the family. It's been part of their lives forever."

Seuntjens added that plans for another auction will include semi-trailers and farm machinery up for sale.
