eBay seems to be the place for moving pictures to unload their four-wheeled props as of late. Currently on the virtual block are a pair of pickups, one that's an Oscar Best Picture nominee and one that's really liked by a guy named Oscar.

The first is the truck driven by Jack Twist (played by Jake Gyllenhal) in the movie Brokeback Mountain, a 1950 GMC half-ton with nearly 61,000 miles. It still has its original engine that is reportedly in superb working condition, and its interior has been restored as per the movie. See the eBay auction here.

The second truck is a true Blue-Light Special: Larry the Cable Guy's 1977 Chevy half-ton, as seen in the movie Health Inspector. Unfortunately, this hauler isn't in as good a shape as Mr. Gyllenhal's truck. Actually, it's not even street legal and wears its salvage title as a badge of honor. However, proceeds of this auction, go to diabetes research.

      Yes, my dear friends, way down in the deep dark bayou there is a group of white trash clansmen who want to sell YOU a GM car/truck! It's their livelyhood, it can mean the difference between eating hamburger and eating possum brains. It can make the difference between their 8 children and 1 grandmother going without diapers, and instead wraping themselved in dishcloths!!

      Can you hep (no, not "help", but "hep") out this hard-working American family? Their great-great-grandpappy served in the Civil War under Jefferson Davis, and one of thier slaves traces his Roots to Kunta Kinte (aka Toby).

      Why...they's just some good-ole-boys!!! Hep 'em out and buy a Chevy for the love of God and Country!

      They EVEN have one of those Monte Carlo SS's!!!

      Since Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., I'd say the Cable Guy's sale is going to an excellent cause.

      That truck doesn't look right. Wasn't the truck in the movie of later vintage? Mid-50s, with that kind of an eyebrow ridge over the headlights?
