ICYMI: Want a Blues Brothers Style Surplus Cop Car? Here's Your Chance


SAN ANGELO – Elwood Blues: "It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?"  

Jake Blues: "The day I get out of prison, my own brother picks me up in a police car."

The classic movie 'The Blues Brothers' featured a surplus, black and white state trooper sedan that was a key player in the movie. 

Now is your chance to pick up something similar in San Angelo.  Tom Green County is holding a huge surplus equipment auction at 3020 N. Bryant Blvd. on Saturday, Sept. 17 starting at 9:03 a.m.

Numerous vehicles, equipment and misc office furniture will be auctioned.  For preview times, terms & conditions, photos & additional information please go to www.bradenauctions.com 

If you don't need a vehicle, how about a slightly used, sturdy steel bunkbed?

There's an old cowboy quip for a horse that's been overworked and neglected.... rode hard and put up wet, and it is sometimes used to describe, well, a rather well used woman.  That's what most of these vehicles are.
