storage war, sort of

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by shadowtippy, Jul 20, 2013.

  1. I went to a local storage facility that was auctioning some units . There were only a few of us there and we looked at the units and made "sealed bids" on them. You has one shot at winning and I got lucky with a WTH bid. I got this for $250.

    Looks good. Though I never would go for a car.. You know, too much change that things ''under the hood'' are gonna cost you a fortune. But, if you can restore the car for a decent price and then sale it for let's say 6k-9k, you did a very good job :D

    Correction: rusted up mid 90's mustang. That's the SN95 platform. It's the first body style of that platform which ran from '94-'98.

    I like it, if you restore it you should post some before and afters
  7. I can think of a lot of fun things to do with a car that I got for $250. Some of them are even legal :)

    Nice score bro. You could have opened the door and found bags of garbage. What do you have planned for your new ride?

    a dead body in plastic bags or the loot of some liquor store robbery ?

    I spent years in the storage business overseeing a bunch of locations. Before the advent of "storage wars" it was a totally different business. I saw some amazingly cool rooms go for sale over the years and also lots and lots of trash.
  11. Several years ago I was working in the construction industry and my boss decided to go to a storage auction, he ended up buying a locker that had three skids of nails for power nailers for a couple hundred dollars, it was worth thousands.

  12. If you part it out, you could most likely double or triple your money.

    Some states don't allow title transfer if a car is bought for salvage. Better check your local laws and see what's up before you spend any more cash.
