You may have seen the collector car auctions on TV. The cars are beautiful and sell for thousands and thousands of pounds. But collectible cars are also sold at local and regional auctions all across the country every weekend, and car buffs just like you should attend if you are searching for the car of your dreams. Buying a collector car at an auction is not all about spending six-figures on a car. It is about finding the car you want, and having the chance to pay less than you thought you could for it. Unlike many other auctions, the stakes are a bit higher. Dropping GBP2-GBP5,000 on a car at an auction is something many of us don't do very often. Avid car enthusiast and author James Mays will help you through the process. From understanding the role of the auctioneer, to local and federal laws you need to be aware of, Mays covers the road with this indispensable guide. Common sense writing from an experienced car aficionado is combined with the formula of the "Savvy Guide" series from Indy-Tech Publishing. This means you have a book that will give you the guidance you need to feel comfortable and confident when you bid on that collector car you've been dreaming of.
It includes topics such as: Scoping out the Competition; Financing; Legal Issues Auction Rules; and What to Expect.
