The auction closes on October 18th.

If you haven't heard many people in the car business say that the best place to get a used car is at auction. I have friends that tell me all the time that they find amazing deals on cars, trucks, and more by going to car auctions all over the place. I'm not sure if any of these types of auctions happen in the Hudson Valley very often so when I heard about one happening now, I thought some might be interested.

According to Dutchess County's Facebook page, the county is currently auctioning off some of its surplus vehicles, equipment, and more. The auction is going on now and will take its last bids on October 18th. Before you scroll down to see some of the items available to bid on let me warn you that most of them say that they will not pass New York State inspection but if you or someone you know is a mechanic and good at fixing things under the hood this might a great chance to get a sweet deal.
