    I've been watching govliquidation for some time. They all start off at $35. The blazers usually seem to go for around $2500 - 4000. When the bidding starts, just check back often.

    The time on the auctions never ends unless the bids end. If you try to bid snipe at the last minute it adds an additional 15 minutes I believe. Better figure out your top dollar and quit there.

    Once the bidding on the CUCV's gets rolling, the numbers get big, FAST. 'Bout a year ago, I bid on a M1008 (or -1009, whichever the K30 is - I can never remember...) that had NO powertrain; basically a body on a frame, sitting on a D60 and 14FF. I topped out at $1k; IIRC the truck ended up going for around $1800!

    hmm not good i suppose since this k5 runs according to the title of the auction aparently has 36k miles on the 6.2 diesel and the only visable rust spots ive noticed are 2 small patches on the front hood and not much that i can see along the lines of dents and such
