Importance of Inspecting Cars Prior to Purchase
Some of the auctions out there will require you to be able to put at least the interior of a car back together after buying it. Make sure you inspect the carsyou plan on bidding for thoroughly beforehand. Make sure you know everything that will need to be done before the car can be driven.
The most important thing to know when attending classic car auctions is that not all of them are the same. Ask questions about the auction before going. This way you’ll be sure to get the best deal possible and have an enjoyable experience.
fity-twenty-twenty-hamana- whatamybid-twentytwo-anda half! The bid is your way sir at twenty two thousand five hundred dollars. Going once, going twice, fair warning-and-I-said-sss-sss- sss-SOLD!!!”.
So goes the lyrical-yet-laser-tonged chant of a tuxedo-clad auctioneer, “moving the metal” at another classic car auction. Public auctions of classicand collector automobiles are presented by auction houses large and small, in any city you can name, and some you can’t. Picture it: a convention hall, or an outdoor, five-story tall tent that’s filled with cheering…or jeering…bidders, cardealers, sellers, shills and miscellaneous hangers on; its public address system cranked to the limit, for maximum impact. Every car that crosses the auction block is polished to a diamond-like gloss. The lights are hot, the action sometimes frenetic, and the deals?
The important thing to remember is never to get caught up in the action. It’s easy to raise your hand to place a bid, so make sure you’ve done your research, and you’re raising that hand with confidence.
