    There is a classic auction in MERLIN CAR AUCTIONS on the 28 of this month. Most of the stuff is dirt but its worth a look.

    u can say that again, but its a good laugh, they charge a bit to get in i think

    How do ya check the listings for the classic auction!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,009 ✭✭✭ lomb


    There is no listing, buy a catologue a few days b4, the vast majority of the cars are ropey junk, avoid.
    when u think about it, u are never really going to buy a classic aka possible money pit at an auction, u will buy it private treaty with a full inspection, something thats impossible at an auction.
    but it is a way of disposing of rustbuckets.........

    anyway will be a very enjoyable day, as there are numerous cars and models there, and u can sit in them all.

    wel it will be expensive parts then, as they dont go cheap, there may be a lot of dodgy shenagins there to ramp up the price or so im told ;)

    Just a quick correction to Knife's post - the site says the classic auction is on the 26th...

    That's a Saturday - sounds like a good afternoon out if you leave the chequebook at home... :D

    yeah... I'm gonna spend 20 grand on a 8 year old nissan sunny classic, all car auctions are a mine field for the private buyer, that 500quid saved on the book price just is not worth it


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 449 ✭✭ camarobill


    500 quid thats more than ul need to get ur new purchase towed home :D:p :eek:

    Ive said it before and will say it again

    The only car to but at an auction is a finance repo they may have the extra 5% fee but your getting a nice minded car.(mostly)
