there are no diesels ( i think) mostly the s class benz's and a few bmw's. all sold at no reserve. being as cold as it is, tomorrow might be a good day to go to the auction.

there's an 83 320i BMW i'd like to see.

here's the link again

Are these cars coming from a local drug bust?

I've been to Fayetteville. I don't recall that it offers much besides the Military base.

I remember there was a glut of, tattoo parlors, pawn shops, bail bond companies and waffle houses.

Are these dealer auctions?

If this is anything like..

NC's previous 'seizure sales' the bids will start about 15% ABOVE book value because it was in a 'DRUG BUST' and none other than Barney Fife actually might have been involved.

Nice... Do you think if you put bling-bling wheels on a brand new CL550 you are going to get "profiled"?

That was way back when. It's gone from Fayettenam to Fay-eirut to Fay-llujah over the years and campaigns.
