    Car auctions

    I'm going to start reading up on this tomorrow and thought you guys would be able to send me in the right direction. It would be kinda cool to get one of those police cars or any cheap carwould be fun.

    i don't know about the police auctions but I have a friend that owns a car lot and he'd take me to the dealer ownly auctions all the time and there are some really nice looking cars there that got the crap kicked out of them and might not make it another 1k miles before needing major work. Mostly its the big dealers dumping all the crappy buy backs they can't sell.

    I'm sure the police auction is totally different. I always wanted to go to one too to get a beatup car. I think if you want a cheap second car you can turn into something you can beat up or a fix me up its a great idea

    that really depends on the auction, I work at one and we see all sorts of nice cars. some of the bigger auctions have accounts for lease returns even, i see about 200 nissans a week that are all in awesome shape going through the one I work at.
