View Full Version : Cheap cars Galore
I recently came across a site that is a data base for government seized cars and general property. Anyone wanting to buy a car will be well advised to take a look here first.

I've heard of these "auctions" before, they are supposed to be cars confiscated for things like drug trafficking, tax evasion and many other reasons. I've never met a person that has bought a car this way and I didn't about their web site.
I did a search for Porsche ( they didn't have Ferraris listed) and this is what I found:
Year Make Model Color Starting Bid
2001 Porsche Boxster Black $1300
2002 Porsche Boxster Silver $1300
2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Black $2000
2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Blue $2500
2003 Porsche 911 Carrera White $2300
2003 Porsche Cayenne Beige $3000
2002 Porsche Boxster Blue $1500
2000 Porsche Boxster Red $1250
2000 Porsche Boxster White $1100
2001 Porsche Boxster Black $1200
These aren't the final asking prices, these are auctions remember.

These are really good ideas. Considering these cars have nothing wrong mechanically with them (Perhaps other than Cocaine in the Fuel tank) and most are high end. If i ever come across a similar auction in Australia, expect me to be bidding. My only concern would be that certain unsavoury characters may approach my car and shoot, thinking i'm it's original owner....
Is it also true that due to NY's zero-tolerance drink driving policy, cars get confiscated off their drivers and sold in a similar fashion?

Does UCP not have guide lines about advertising in your posts?

You could say that about posts relating to Model stores also.
It's all relative, he hasn't gone and posted everywhere saying " BUY FROM ME".....
But a valid point, regardless.
