Some are late-model luxury vehicles in perfect condition, some older models in not-so-great condition, some damaged or wrecked, and even motorcycles and RV's.

Some auction announcements may provide a fairly detailed list of what will be sold on a particular day. Others are less detailed, or provide no detail at all.
