Probably. Seized I'm sure.

Could be IRS seizures too. It appears to me that most the stuff on Govdeals goes for more than it would on craigslist.

Most of the non-bus vehicles I've looked at on there, other than retired police cruisers, seem to have been drug seizures based on the agency listing them.

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.

Sometimes the seller will state it is a seized or forfeited vehicle.
If not you can get a good idea by the agency selling.

That Willys Wagon is pretty nice. But damn, that's crazy to pay that much for one that isn't completely original.

I can't remember if I've posted about this on here before or not, but here's mine. It has a Mercedes diesel in it, and I paid less than 3 grand for it.

She's a beauty!

And yes that"s exactly my point; people drive those prices way up.
I am into dump trucks and see trucks on gov deals going for $5k that often sell on Craigslist for $2500 to 3500.

Thank you!

Yep, there's something about auctions that goad people into engaging in a dong measuring contest, and things often sell for a lot more than they're actually worth.

Every time I see auctions for vehicles like this on Govdeals it seems like the bidding goes to stupid levels.

It's even worse when you factor in the auction fee which can range from 5% to 20%.

I saw an original early 1970s Ford Bronco for sale by a park agency in California. Listed as non-running, missing a lot of body parts, etc. It was more of a parts vehicle. Bidding went over $20K
