Recently, we tracked the story of a lost and found Plymouth GTX that is currently on auction through a local Northern Michigan Sheriff’s department. It got us thinking, where are the other places you could reasonably acquire a classic car besides your typical car lot or auction site?
Sometimes the secret to getting a deal on a sweet ride is just that—a secret. If you are the only one who knows the car is for sale, that can be a situation ripe for a sweet buy. With more demand from multiple buyers, the seller suddenly has options and a good cause to maximize opportunity. And of course, while it’s always preferable to save money, there are some moral gray areas when it comes to buying a car off of someone —who might not know better—for a steep discount.
Is there an avenue that where you find a deal from time to time? Police auctions? Estate sales? Tell us about it in the comments below (if you’re feeling generous enough to share).
