    The Auction Gods give and the Auction Gods take away.

    I was just contacted by GSA and told that the auction description was substantially misleading and incorrect. A large amount of the 561 I bid on had been salvaged prior to the auction. Rather than have an issue with disputing the sale they offered to simply cancel it and refund my full payment. Having not actually seen the vehicle and limited to 1 poorly taken photo I decided that was the best recourse. Maybe some will come up a little closer and I can actually look at them and decide how much I want to spend on it.

    Well, sorry that happened. But in truth, I'd a lot rather go help you recover one a bit closer than Idaho!

    Cheers

    Well my discretionary spending amount just went up as I can add about $1500 in recovery expenses to what I'd spend on one. Better that it happened now than after I drove 1800 miles to get it.

    MK, if you want some more of these, there are 3 down the road from me, fresh from Ft Hood. By fresh I mean they came from there in the 80's and have sat inoperable in the weather ever since.

    Not trying to collect an actual herd but wanted one. Are parts available from the ones near you? I know this latest one is missing at least 1 wheel and tire.

    No just the one. Can you tell me what all is missing from it? How tough is it going to be to get it on a trailer?

    I didn't actually win any of them,I previewed the one in Morganton(it's 5 minutes away),I remembered seeing the one in Crossnore some years back,no parts vehicles around here that I know of.
