I would imagine that the dealers may have decided ahead of time to put the cars up for auction, than sell top a local buyer.
I have read several stories about these cars being bought at a dealer and shipped to buyers across the country. Dealers are just trying to squeeze every possible buck the can. That's capitalism I guess.
