    I placed some sealed bids Friday with a Government Agency on 4 Dodge Diesel 2500 pickups, 2-1998's and 2-1996's and then 2 1989 Dump Trucks in hopes of getting one of the trucks and one of the dump trucks.....then I though, DANG what if I win them all ;) ...guess I'll have to find some work to keep 'em busy :D

    Simple, if you win them all then you obviously bid too high. Expensive lesson to learn though. Kinda the opposite of picking up customers.

    Naw, Kevin cause this ain't my first rodeo you see. I bid prices high enough to win what I really wanted and low enough on the others that I don't care if I do get them because I will have "stole" those you see. :cool2:


    T, they were from a Federal Government auction site that you have to be a member of too bid. Once you join you receive emails a few times a year when they are selling. I'll dig up the registration site for you.

    I was just pullling you chain with a little humor. Maybe a :p would have set the tone a little better.

    Well if you win, make good friends with your local transminsion shop, cause your gonna need it. Dodge makes damn good engines, and horrible tranny's.
