    An auction for the 'world's fastest UPS truck' was canceled after UPS presented proof it still owns - Business Insider

    The "world's fastest UPS truck" — created by the company to advertise its NASCAR sponsorship — was up for auction starting at $1 until the shipping company reclaimed the truck.

    The speedy delivery truck was being auctioned off by Iron Horse Auction Company, which is based in Rockingham North Carolina. The auction house claims it is the world's fastest UPS truck and has 850 horsepower.

    However, UPS claimed there was communication between it and the storage facility where the truck was being held, and that the vehicle wasn't meant to go on the block.

    So how could the people who were trying to auction it off even get the auction house to take it on without a title? Something is fishy.

    Salvage title?

    Was it ever even street legal?

    Who knows? They would have been farther along if they would have parted it out.

    UPS may have tried to send it to be crushed. But then someone grabbed it.

    It sounds like UPS forgot they even owned it :-).

    Same way a storage place auctions off abandoned storage units.

    Rumor has it that the show encouraged and paid for Brandi's boob job to boost ratings.
