If you've got a dollar, they've got a Delta 88

Where can you buy two portable CD/cassette players, one lot of fire hoses, and a 1983 Chevrolet Caprice Classic—and still get change back from a $10? Why, at http://ebid.nashville.gov, of course, the Nashville municipal government's answer to eBay. At the city's auction site, you can bid on a pirate chest of impounded booty, much of it confiscated in drug raids and other crime-busting activities. Among the recent treasures: five cosmetology stools ($27); one cooler without a lid ($9); three traffic cones ($10); one shampoo chair ($21); and three palm-tree candle holders complete with one 4-foot palm tree ($8). Just make sure you read the fine print carefully, and watch for the phrase "working condition unknown"—three words that, come to think of it, could apply to much of Metro government.
