      www.Kenporterauctions.com in gardena. Mostly City & County vehicles. They have been around about 40 years.

      I had not been to this auction in a long time. Back in 1978 , myself and fellow associates were asked to leave the yard and never return. (During the pre auction inspection , we drove a retired fire ladder truck around the yard!) LOL. The management was NOT amused at the time ! We just wanted to test it before bidding!

        Sounds like fun. I've seen kenporter auctions advertised but have not attended one before.

          Replacement Batteries for the ford ranger ev at lionev are... $14,000 for Lithium Ion batteries install extra.

          You can buy a lot of cng with $14,000 lets see cng at $2.50 a gallon in California.... 14K equals 5600 gallons of cng * lets say the ford gets 20MPG on cng. Thats 112,000 miles to break even on the batteries.

          You can buy a full size CNG F150 at GSA for $8000 and not break the bank on batteries. CNG fuel up at a fast fill station vs a couple of hours to charge an ev.

            LOL. I didn't get kicked out, but got a lot of heat once for getting in an old giant PG&E manlift truck, at an auction, that went about 80 ft. up and riding it to the top
