There’s a bumper crop of over 100 classic cars coming up for auction in Minnesota this Saturday.

The vehicles were owned by a farmer named James Graham, who died last December at 88.

Graham was a life-long bachelor who spent his time collecting mostly old American cars, trucks and tractors.

At one point he reportedly had over 500 scattered about his farm and stored in sheds, although it was pared down a bit in recent years.

The sale is being conducted by VanDerBrink Auctions and started on Friday with farm equipment, but on Saturday will be focused on the cars and trucks.

They range from the 1920s to 1970s, but the bulk of the collection is from the 1950s and 1960s and heavy on the drop-tops.

The collection includes a few gems like a 1957 Chevy Cameo pickup, 1962 Ford Thunderbird Convertible and 1967 Imperial Convertible, but many of the cars are just rusted out hulks more suitable for supplying parts than transportation.

The event is being held in Beardsley, Minn., and all of the lots are being offered without reserve.
