I selected this auction company with the buyers in mind for the following reasons. 

1..I have bought promos from ToysTrainsandOtherOldStuff since the opening of this auction business.

2..They are knowledgeable in the toy world and are interested in promos.

3..They are honest and fair in their dealings.

4..They have a lower premium than most other auction houses.

5..They ship for reasonable costs. This is billed by third-party company.

6..The whole operation is efficient and well-organized.

7..I want these promos to find good homes. Buy lots of them and treasure them.


I have decided to retire Clarence Young Autohobby ONLINE effective 04/20/2020.

The first promo I ever received was in 1952 before I began first grade. Little did I know that it would become a life-long passion. In 1957 I purchased a case of 1957 Ford station wagons--one to keep and the rest to retail at my parents' gift shop.  In 1986 I began this promo business as a vendor at shows. In 1996 I began the process of setting up a website for retailing promos. In 2020 I am ending the online retail aspect of this business. 

My business stock and my personal collection will be sold at "the big auction/s" with forthcoming announcements made on this website. No more items will be sold until the "big auction/s."

I am 73 and my health is good. I want more time to spend with grandkids. I still roller skate, dance, and suspect I can still learn to ride my unicycle (no juggling). It will be fun teaching my grandkids to do these things and I want them to remember Papaw.

Many thanks to the bunches of people with whom I have traded for the past many decades.

For Sale: I have a beautiful 2006 Mazda RX8 rotary engine suicide-rear-doors sports coupe with 6-speed automatic transmission. This car has just turned 50,000 miles. I bought it from the original owner and it has tires with 2000 miles on them--Pirelli Cinturato P7's costing $700 with new pressure sensors included. As far as I know everything works on this car as when new. You can own it for $4750. I will drive it to any destination in 48 states for 95 cents per mile. Upon delivery I will expect a free ride to a nearby auto rental agency for my return trip. 828-768-5243
