SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -- When Airmen leave Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina, vehicles can be a hassle to move. But, the 20th Force Support Squadron "Lemon Lot" can assist with the transition.

"The purpose of the Lemon Lot is to give an opportunity for base personnel and their families to try and sell their vehicles in a centralized, highly visible area," said John Lonergan, 20th Force Support Squadron Studio 20 manager. "Often vehicles found on the Lemon Lot belong to personnel about to move to an overseas location."

The Lemon Lot is located on Shaw Dr., next to Shaw Lanes Bowling Center.

"I've looked on the Lemon Lot a couple times," said Senior Airman Joshua Wagner, 20th Comptroller finance customer service specialist. "They have a lot of great vehicles for cheap. It's definitely nice for younger Airman with not a lot of money."

Boats, cars, trucks, trailers, campers, and motorcycles are allowed to be sold on the lot.

"Approximately 50-75 vehicles are sold each year on the Lemon Lot," said Lonergan. "Anyone wanting to place their vehicle on the resale lot can sign up in the Studio 20 office in the McElveen Resource Center with their registration and proof of insurance."

It costs $10 per 14 days to have a vehicle on the lot. For more information call studio 20 at 803-895-4774
