  1. Am I alone in seeing this auction as a bit of an unfair way to get the maximum value out of them ? Certainly will be some that know more about each vehicle, such as it’s last driver. This looks like a set up for sheriff department employees to know what is worth buying. At best they are worth scrap value unless being started and moved to auction platform and a real auction taking place. The fleet manager surely knows plenty. Are they x police cars?
    Many might only be worth $100 while a few might be worth a few thousand.

  2. Relax Jimmy, not everything is a conspiracy, these auctions have been going on like this for years not just in the Keys but all over the nation. I know people that have bought cars and items at the police auctions and had great deals and others that just bought what ended up being junk. Most of the people that participate in these auctions know what they are doing and what to look for.
