MIAMI, Fla. (CNN/WSVN) -- "Hot wheels" seized in a tough takedown. And now, the highest bidder is getting the keys to the rides. After busting pill mills in South Florida, the feds confiscated high-end cars and watercraft. And now, some people are now getting a taste of luxury at a discount.
Excited bidders are looking to score a good deal on a hot rod. Auctioneer Kevin Scully says, "We've also got the Mustangs, we've got the Barracudas, we've got the Chevy Camaros, we've got the Chevy Corvettes and we have your basic cars with some BMWs, some Hondas."
These high end cars were taken away from the bad guys by U.S. Marshals, and now they're using them for good. Bidder Peter Lima says, "The proceeds go back to the US Marshals service, and will be divvied between local municipalities and also between the federal agencies and this goes back to help fight other crimes in the cities."
And if you're into the bells and whistles, one bidder says this is the place to be. Jabber Short says, "They spent a lot of money souping them up so that's cool you're buying not only a car but what the guy did to it, which is probably thousands."
But with such a high turnout some people say it's pricier than they expected. Scully says, "More people turned out than I expected, normally when you come to these events, you hope that not too many people turn out so the prices don't get bid up too high, it's getting kinda high right now."
Even though there are hundreds of bidders, not all the cars sold. The good news is you can still buy these online.
And the cash from your new wheels will go to a good cause. Scully says, "It's a great thing, it's a great thing, the communities right now are definitely struggling for funds, so this definitely helps it out, gives it a boost so we can fight crime."
