Perak to auction off CamrysIPOH: The Perak state government will auction off the 16 Toyota Camry 2.4 cars that were used by the former executive councillors under the previous coalition government.
According to a tender notice sent to the advertising division of a Malay daily here yesterday, the auction would be held from May 4 to 18.
The tender statement issued by the Perak State Secretariat yesterday said the auction would be carried out at the car park of the Bangunan Perak Darul Ridzuan here, from 9.30am until 4pm.
The statement said the vehicles could be bought either in bulk or individually at the reserve price of RM148,000 each. A brand new Camry 2.4 costs RM170,000.
The cars, with registration numbers AGS10, AFD11, AFD22, AFD33, AFD55, AFD66, AFD77, AFD88, AFD99, AFD333, AFD999, AFF33, AFF88, AFF99, AGS828 and AEU606, were all registered on Jan 9, this year.
The statement also said that all the cars were bought new and used between one and two months with low mileage and were under three-year warranty by the manufacturer.
Anyone intending to buy the cars must submit their offer before noon on May 18. — Bernama
Starting from RM148,000 each!
Dateline before May 18, so start collecting your funds now.
On another note, next thing you'll hear is the BN reps will start buying back Proton Perdanas for their official use, with the pretext of support the buy Malaysia campaign.
Then when the maintenance bills start piling high, and when investigated, they will probably blame back Proton for such a high-maintenance car, yadda, yadda, yadda, and then change it back to a fleet of Camrys.
Or worst still if they decides to change to Mercedes Benz cars!
