BC auctions off used cars to students

By Sam Smeltzer, The Circuit

BC is looking to sell two used cars to students.

The auction closes on Nov. 20.

One of the cars is a white 1999 Ford Taurus 4D with a mileage of approximately 160,000. It used to be an operations car owned by BC. The market value on the car is $2,325.

The second is a black 2005 Nissan Altima 4D with a mileage of approximately 197,000.

A bid is currently going on over email to determine the new owners of the cars. The market value on the car is $4,300.

According to BC, both cars are in great shape, and many students have already been interested in bidding. Senior Tim Heron already placed his bid.

“This is a really great opportunity to get a nice, affordable car from people I can trust,” Heron said.

The idea of more students with cars has many students excited including Katie Greenwood, junior.

“I think it’s a great way for students who live far away to be able to have a car to use,” Greenwood said.

The cars are in the parking lot north of St. Michael’s Hall if you would like to get a better look at them.

“The cars look great! Although I hope they don’t attract too much attention or they will become more expensive during the bid,” Tim Heron said.

Lori Chew, who works in operations, is running the auction. For more details or to place a bid, email her at lchew@benedictine.edu, but be sure to have your bids in by Sunday Nov 20.
