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.

    Pensioners approve Detroit bankruptcy plan

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
