We're in the two-min. warning stage of this PS bid, because Ryan's playing Gas Money for a '13 Chevy Silverado 1500 Regular Cab 119.0" WT (Manuela):
GOODBYE, PS & $6K (he eliminated $27K+ first & Javier wanted him to eliminate $25,885 third, I think)
(Notes: Leaving out the destination fee for a non-Honda car like this one's very unusual nowadays. Also, George didn't repeat the kind of truck at the end of the plug.)
