If your’e looking to get a new ride on the cheap this holiday season, this weekend's state vehicle surplus auction is something you probably don't want to miss.
280 surplus cars, trucks, SUVs, even dumptrucks will go to the highest bidder Saturday, December 12. Officials say it's the first batch of vehicles that will go on sale to the public after state agencies were asked to down size their fleets by ten percent in preparation for future budget shortfalls.
Vehicles at the auction can leave the lot for as little as $1000 dollars.
Auction officials encourage all potential buyers to inspect the vehicles before placing any bid because every sale is final.
