LOCATION: At the house 13251 Leonard St. Nunica, MI 49448

DIRECTIONS: From Grand Rapids take I-96 West to the Nunica exit #10 (112th Ave.), South 1 mile to Leonard St., then West 3 miles. OR from Spring Lake take M-104 East to 148th Ave., South 1 mile to Leonard St., then East 1 ½ mile. (Ottawa Co.)

Due to other interests, I have decided to sell my hobby equipment and personal collector items. I have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneer to conduct a Live Public Auction here at my home. I would very much appreciate you coming to my Auction and would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your participation.

Very best regards, Elmer Bluhm

NOTE: Elmer retired from General Motors with 35 years of service as an engineer, after serving in the military for several years in the late 1940’s. He always enjoyed vintage autos and went to many shows. His tractors are in top condition, running and looking good. The Cadillac Coup deVille is in great shape inside and out and hard to find in this condition. The Corvette is an original owner ordered by Elmer while an employee of GM, with only 52,000 miles and always stored in the garage, nice auto!!

These along with the tools, collectibles, farm primitives and the unusual will make this a Saturday morning auction you will want to attended!! Make plans to be just East of Spring Lake on Saturday August 19 @ 10:00AM for the start of this nice clean Auction.

For your convenience we will have some off street parking, lunch wagon, wash-up station and port-a-jons.
