The Government of Canada is auctioning a bunch of things for a pretty good price in Ontario, and some of it also includes a reasonably priced car.

GCSurplus offers a slew of good deals to all Canadians who love to score whopping discounts on a variety of goods.

The government-run auction site has a bunch of things Ontarians can place their bids on from an affordable diamond ring to a decently priced treadmill (and so much more).

GCSurplus

Current bid: $2,000

Details: If you're looking for a brand new laptop, well, this MacBook Pro on GCSurplus has never been used before and it's going for less than some of the laptops at the Apple store.

This space grey laptop is still in its original packaging and comes equipped with a touch bar and touch ID, and a 2.6 GHz 6-core Intel Core i7 with 9 MB shared L3 cache. A note to the buyer that the Apple product hasn't been tested by GCSurplus, and all sales are final for the laptop, too.

Auction ends: March 23 at 2:11 p.m. EST

GCSurplus

Current bid: $6,875

Details: This eight-year-old car is looking for a new driver to take it out for a spin all the way back to its new home.

But, there are quite a few issues to consider before placing a bet on this car.

Not only does the car creak when it turns, but the muffler and catalytic converter need to be replaced, the A/C needs to be serviced (or repaired), there is some loose wiring in the panels around the gear shift, and the steering gear isn't operating properly. Plus, the tire tread is low and may need to be replaced, and the brakes may require some servicing.

The car also has some scratches and dents, the headlights are "foggy", there's velcro on the windshield, and its missing headrests in the back row (and also missing the third row of seats.)

GCSurplus

Current bid: $30

Details: Calling all Scrubs fans: you can cop four Funko Pops that (are meant to) look like Dr. Cox, Elliot, Turk and J.D. from the show.

Each Funko Pop is still in its original packaging, though there may be some wear and tear on the boxes. So, if some damage to the packaging is a deal-breaker for you, then you might want to keep looking since you can't check out the goodies before you buy them.
