I got this story second hand so I don't know all the details, but the source is reliable....
An older gentleman farmer was having a retirement auction. As items sold, he noticed the auctioneer would often make a remark about the lot if bidding slowed. You know the routine, "You'll never find another like it" or "That's a hundred dollar bill over at Orsheln's store." Well, the sale came around to an old tractor-perhaps 40 years old or so. The bidding started, then slowed. The auctioneer said something about how nice it looked and the bidding picked up. When it slowed again, he said, "She's a fine runner-plenty of power." Sure enough a few more bids came in. Finally, the auctioneer figured he'd squeezed as much commision out of the old tractor as he could and was about to drop the gavel when the old farmer chimed in with, "And I never had to even change the oil in her."
