Hmmm, $250 estimate.
Lots of cars to look at for this auction, so who knows how it will turn out!
Has some potential, let's say $600.
Looking a bit rough, maybe $300.
Who needs a hood that closes all the way or a driver window mirror!
Who wouldn't want to drive one of these things around?
Tires look OK, so maybe a sign that it runs.
Worth a shot at $100.
I didn't check this one out too much, but judging by the amount of pine needles, and the uneven wear on that tire, not too promising.
Still, only 5 years old, so if there isn't any damage it might be worth something to someone. $1,000.
Not the oldest car in the auction, and certainly not the newest!
It's even got a sunroof, maybe someone will want to give $500 for it.
OK, it's already got a black hood and is missing some trim, there's no key, but again, it's got a sunroof!
I'm going to guess that 50 bucks takes it.
Peeling paint, but probably lots of repair parts out there if you need them, and how much is a couple of cans of spray paint anyway!
Let's guess $400.
It has an engine-CHECK!
And it has wheels, how bad could an abandoned 8 year old car be?
Let's say $1,200 takes it on Wednesday.
If Civics and Hondas still have a great reputation, this one is probably fixable, although I don't know whats wrong with it.
Maybe $700 will be enough for you to find out!
You can probably see the hood is at an odd angle, so there must have been a front end collision of some sort.
Not too hopeful for this one, so I'll estimate it sells at $400.
I rehad a 1986 Nissan Sentra that had a more square back end, so this one didn't quite give me any happy car-owner flashbacks, although it does have four doors.
No key available here, and it looks like the driver door doesn't really shut very solidly, besides that piece of trim on the ground.
I'll guess it doesn't sell.
You can see the damage on the right side that probably doesn't mean too much, and you can catch a glimpse of the special tail gate too. The truck bed is chock full of extra wheels and tires, so maybe they are included with the Ford. Now who doesn't need a full size pickup at a cheap price?
I'm thinking this goes for at least $1,000, you could make that by parting it out easy.
2001 Ford E150 van, let's say it goes for $2,200.
This is the third white truck in a row, so if you didn't like the two previous Fords, maybe you want a Dodge.
Maybe the Dodge you're looking for will go for about $1,300.
Usually TLC means Tender Loving Care, but seeing the front end damage on this bad boy, I think it means Totally Lost Cause.
Well...unless you have another Maxima that was totaled in the rear end and you want to combine the two in order to make one good car, good luck!
Maybe $25 for scrap.
Another front end special, this time it's a 2006 Ford Mustang.
Sorry, but I didn't even look to see if it was a V6 or V8, I was sad to see this little pony looking so beat up. Don't worry though, there's a couple more Mustangs coming up, including a nice bright yellow one!
This thing will get $400 and get sold for parts, the wheels are worth that much.
It also is old enough to have plastic bits of it falling apart and disintegrating, much less the awesome puke green hood color!
Other than those things it really looked kind of OK, so I'm going to guess that someone handy with VW engines would buy this body and drop a new motor in there.
Hey, it's a GUESS, that's why this is fun! $300.
I don't know why they named this car the way they did, maybe 15 years ago they were "intrigued" if Oldsmobile would last much longer. Maybe they knew that today Olds would be out of business, and youngsters would be "intrigued" with cars like this and ask "what the heck is an Oldsmobile, a car for old people?"
Not looking too promising here, I'm going to say it doesn't sell to anyone for any amount.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Children of all ages, we have a winner! This looks to be the car in the auction in the best shape, so now all I have to do is Acura-etly predict the auction price. (You do know that Acura is the name of the Honda's fancy brand right?).
This thing will go for at least $5,000.
Don't worry, if it's about to hammer for $4,000 I won't bid it up just to come back on the blog and claim I nailed it either!
See, Mustangs are my weakness, so I'm dreaming of buying this think cheap and fixing it up, probably influenced by my Dad's old 66 Mustang, or the 04 Mustang (same body as this) that I used to have. This one's not a convertible, not a V8, but, uh, well, it's still a Mustang!
OK, other than the fact that Scion is one of Toyota's brands, and that Scion is about to cease to exist, they make some fun little cars.
This one doesn't have a key, but I think it will find a new home this week for $1,000.
Dang man, another Oldsmobile. And it's a Cutlass. You might know that at one time the Cutlass was a pretty cool car. The bad news is that "one time" was about 1970, and it's 2016 now!
Not too interested in this one to be honest with you, but maybe someone will want to throw some giant wheels on it and paint it. For $200 I bet it can be yours!
Being a Z, it should attract some bidders, so who knows?
Maybe $1,500 takes it. I didn't really look at it, so I could be WAY OFF on this one.
Remember, "El Dorado" is Spanish for "THE DORADO."
See comments above on the last Oldsmobile, $200.
Sorry I didn't get the model or any other info, it's a Toyota, so it probably still runs, even without an engine.
That's a joke, I'll be here all week!
Try the veal.
This is the car I was most interested in, hoping to find a running, awesome shape, high class, big motor G35.
From this view, it looks pretty good! I don't think the two tone paint job was stock, so maybe this is a great car that some motor-head took great care of! It even has a key!
Let's walk around and check out the ...
Dang, thought this was going to be an awesome car, and WRONG!
Big damage on the right front, airbags exploded, etc.
However, it's still an Infinit (fancy Nissan), so someone will want to be parting it out or hoping the motor is still good for $850.
This is a 2001 Acura Integra, and from this angle I was hoping to see the RS badge that indicates more horsepower, but no luck.
We have to put Saab in the same category as Oldsmobile and almost Scion since they are out of business too.
If you're looking for a project car, this one would be fun, but probably not more than $400 worth of Swedish fun.
This 2000 Chevy Astro van can be yours at auction, let's say $1,200.
It has a key, and the tires/wheels look pretty good.
I forget if it had airbags deployed, so who knows.
Maybe someone will want it for $800.
Plus it has some custom lettering on the back, but no key.
Maybe this 2005 Ford Mustang will sell for $1,400.
I'm fascinated to see what those sell for. There's a monthly abandoned vehicle auction for the city of VB coming up on Saturday that I was going to check out, but we bought a project Miata this week so the yard is officially full.ReplyDelete
I'm planning to go tomorrow and see what they sell for. Good luck with the Miata, there's so many of them it's always easy to find parts. Brian will be up here Sunday to autocross in his 99 Miata too.ReplyDelete
