If you are in the market for a good used car at a bargain basement price, Tuesday's Pennsylvania vehicle auction is the place to be. 

Over 400 vehicles will be auctioned off with the proceeds heading back to the state and you, the taxpayer.

“There is something for everyone,” said Sal Cuomo from Manheim Central Penn Auto Auction. 

From plows to pace cars, the first state vehicle auction of 2014 will surely satisfy every buyer’s needs.

“It’s a great way of getting a quality used vehicle, with great maintenance and no history to the public,” Cuomo said.

Over 400 vehicles will be on the block Tuesday at Manheim Central Penn in Grantville, Dauphin County. 

The objective is to move a large number of used vehicles out of the state fleet, returning the money to the taxpayer.

“It goes right back to the general fund and the agency that supplied the unit,” Cuomo said.

The vehicles come from all across the state. Old police cars head the list, while a plow or snowmobile may come in handy as some winter weather returns to our forecast. 

But if you are dreaming of spring, a 1985 corvette with a mere 30,000 miles will do the trick.

“You’re going to get a great deal.  It is the taxpayer’s money so there are interests to protect. You will buy these vehicles for pennies on the dollar but it will be a good value,” Cuomo said.

But buyers must come prepared.  The state will only accept cash or certified funds. So if it’s wholesale you are looking for, then it’s wholesale you shall get.

“This is a wholesale environment so you will really get a great opportunity and it only happens 5 to 6 times a year,” said Cuomo.

The auction begins at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, but registration starts at 8 a.m. 

Manheim Central Penn Auto Auction is just off Interstate 81 at 488 Firehouse Road in Grantville.
