Sullivan-Leonard said she wonders if this is the end.

"Down the line, maybe the mayor's got some tables and chairs that Sarah Palin used he wants to put on eBay?" she said.

Rupright, speaking to The Associated Press by telephone from his office, said he was sitting on a chair the city bought for Palin when she was mayor.

"It's getting a little old and dirty," he said. They might get $10 for it at a secondhand store, or a Palin fan might pay $200 for it because she once sat in it.

"Somebody might find some value in it," Rupright said. "If you can get some dollars back for it, you should try, in my mind. That's just business."

The auction winner hasn't taken possession of the SUV yet, and she hasn't been identified.

"She's just a Palin fan, and she does have a small collection of cars," said city's public works director, Archie Giddings. "It's a good fit for her."

Palin drove the SUV during her second term as mayor, which ended in October 2002. It was later used by other city employees.
