Default Car Auctions

There is a brand new and innovative way to get your dream car! Though it sounds bit different then also the trend is growing in demand among people all over the world. Basically, it's the gov car auctions that can certainly help you in getting your dream car. Many desired to have their own car but it's the money that matters. For a fashionable or a luxurious car you need a handsome amount in your account. On the other hand through car auctions you can get used car in well condition and in cheap price. recently I purchased my Corvette through one of those gov car auctions agency and they offered me a good deal on it.

No offense, but I think either you are trying to sell us something, or rather naive. Car auctions, particularly government car auctions, are notoriously chancey venues: truly "buyer beware." Most cars in government auctions have been seized under conditions that would make you wonder if the cars were ever maintained properly, and also indicate it is fairly certain they were abused. The vast majority in government auctions, by the way, are cars you don't want: for every 2007 Navigator with 20 inch rims and only 3800 miles, or 'vette, there are two hundred clapped out Luminas or Venturas or minivans with faded paint, sagging seats, non-working air, and only a majority of their cylinders firing.Ex-police, government, and FBI cars are used up: the government knows just when to let cars go because their cost/mile is about to rise bbecause they are worn out.

My son (a master mechanic) goes to these things every other week but brings home only about two cars a year which he fixes up and sells for a profit. Unless you really know cars, I'd stay away like it was the plague.

Oh, I went and looked at the site. I see you (or the website) are trying to sell something - membership for $39.50. Not necessary: you can do a google or other search engine find on all the local auctions in your area of the country pretty easily. Why pay someone else that much to do it?
