Auction Of Late State Rep.’s Antiques Saturday

KSAL StaffJune 28, 2013

The late state Rep. Bob Bethell had a passion for finding antiques and built a large collection during his lifetime.

Bethell accumulated so many antiques that he built a large garage near his home in Alden and planned an adjoining room to hold more. But Bethell died in a car accident in May 2012 before the project was done.

His wife, Lorene, has decided to part with some of his beloved antique cars and some other items during an auction Saturday.

Seven cars will be sold, along with Volkswagen bodies for parts. Other items up for auction include several tractors, a Pepsi machine, a traffic light and several fire hydrants. The auction starts at 10 a.m. Saturday in Alden.
