PONTIAC, Mich. (WJBK) -

Whether you need a new ride or maybe some new bling, you could fine what you're looking for Saturday morning at Oakland County's spring auction.

A gold '71 Chevelle is the centerpiece of the auction. J. David Vanderveen with the county thinks the car could fetch somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000.

At Friday's preview, there was plenty of tire-kicking and note-taking.

There are 88 vehicles, including lots of police cruisers, to be had at less than retail.

"The police cars, we have a good reputation, our crew does, for maintaining them. So they might have 100,000 miles, but they'll be well-maintained," Vanderveen said.

Items seized by police going on the block include a collection of size 13 Air Jordans, video games, luxury Rolex watches and custom jewelry.

Last year, the auction made $500,000 for the county.

Festivities start at 8:00 a.m. Saturday at 1200 North Telegraph in Pontiac.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
