thats cool man very cool convo starter it is a damn shame tho that so many of those cars were bought just for the sake of buying them, rather then actualy driving them and appreciating them.

I'm not sure. During the auction. You can only start the car. You can't even shift the gears to test the gear box.

If you want the car ,you place $500 cash first and then bid the amount you want on the car. But must be above the suggested price on the window.

If you get the car. and suddenly change your mind because the engine is faulty, you lose the $500 right away.

But you don't get it bacuse someone bid higher than you, they refund the $500 later in two weeks.

That pretty much just sucks that you can't even test out anything on the car before bidding.

You know many people bought the 8 series. Now I've seen their cars sitting in the workshop lots and dealer lots waiting for spares. Parts for the 8 are limited. Some owners even try to sell it just to avoid the hassle of the V12 and maintenance.

These cars sits for 15 years without starting is not a good sign.
