    Let me know if you want to buy my truck. I think I want a hmmmv. It's a 92 in mint condition. With a CT title!

    That is an interesting and dangerous statement. These auctions are a crap shoot. Even if a truck is inspected it could be damaged after the purchase or items removed. As anyone can attest on this site the auction trucks are not the cheapest. Maybe you will be lucky and get a good running one but you could also get a major lemon. If you are going to play the auction game beware, you will get burned sooner or later.

    Even if the initial price seems lower look at all the other costs

    1.) Auction fees
    2.) Transport
    3.) Oh **** items
    4.) Sales Tax

    You can easily add $1000.00 to the price of any truck you purchase at auction versus a private seller

    I think you will find that you have to pay for quality, be it on the auction or with a private individual.

    Patience pays off. Having cash at an opportune time is important. If you are a gambler, go for the auction. I think the same addiction exists with the auction as does a gambling casino. So do you feel lucky?
