While 644 registered to bid, the President and Agent 533 took an entertaining stroll through the inventory, pausing more than occasionally to marvel at how far the definition of classic car will be stretched in these auction situations. 1993 Olds 98? Did the sign say "Derby Car Auction Today"? Agent 533 was heard to comment "This is the worst car in the world" so many times the phrase lost its meaning. He was not incorrect, though, and watching the auction staff try to get any of the cars to actually run was a source of some levity.

After the Caddy had made it to the door, the 'Bird was up. Would everyone else recognise the only good car, and bid the price way up? Was it a lost cause, trying to get a good deal at these things?
No. The bidding started at $500, and was lethargic up to about $1500, when the auctioneer finally noticed Agent 644, who bought the car with a single bid of $1700! Less than half of what was bid on the most disgusting Camaro this reporter has ever seen.
