Auction Again!

We went to the Manheim auction this morning. It is the same place that I posted pictures from several weeks ago. There were only about 1800 cars available today, where usually there are over 2000. Chris and I were both tired and had a great deal of difficulty getting our head into the game.

The auctioneers go so darned fast, selling one car in about every 45 seconds. You have no time to make decisions as you normally would. It is a split second thing. Basically it comes down to either you want this or you don't.

We set a price ceiling, and when the car goes over the price we set, you have to have the discipline to walk away. We are doing fairly well at keeping to the number we have on the pad before the bidding began.

We came away with one 2007 car, and a bid on a second one, which we did not get.

The rest of the day was spent driving back and forth delivering cars to the shop, and going after titles. Just mundane stuff, but it takes two of us since we need to drive the second car places. Boring but very time consuming.

Tonight we went out to Taco Johns's a fast food Mexican taco stand. We like their Chalupas and Buritos. So now its late at night and we are sitting here wondering what we should plan for tomorrow.

Anything, but car dealer work. LOL
