Bought 2 Units Yesterday
« on: November 17, 2011, 10:09:05 PM »
My buddy and I ended up getting two units yesterday.  We have been attending auctions the past 5 months, but finally ended up winning two units. 

First unit we paid $300.  Items included a beautiful coffee table with three matching end tables, 4 Lamps that actually ended up having the price tag on the bottom which was $120 per lamp.  An older Baraclounger Leather recliner which retails for around 1k, but I will be happy to get $200 for it.  RCA 32in TV along with a nice TV stand. Also had a ton of artwork and mirrors that were purchased from Walmart and Kohl's because they had the price tags on the back.  They ranged from $5-$30, but I probably have about 25 all together. Also had some old purses and vases.  Also found some old coins, but we got them looked appraised and they are not worth anything.

Second Unit we paid $200.  The unit was a stripped Acura Integra I believe it's a 95-01 acura. A lot the items we actually had to pitch because they were junk.  We do have access to dumpster in the area so at least we didnt have to pay to dump the stuff.  We ended up keeping all 4 Doors and door pannels.  The doors on ebay are going for around $150 and the pannels $50-100.  Unit also included two brand new air bags and some cheap tools.  All in all I think we will make some money of the unit, but it will be a grind trying to find a buyer.

I have listed most of the items on craigslist and am having a garage sale this weekend. I have attached some pictures below.

You can also sell the body, bad parts, etc. to a scrapper or scrap them yourselves.
