Missed the disclaimer at the start of the auction and on the sheet you had to fill out for a biders card didn't you.

The auto auction where I live says "Bidders by bidding confirm they have inspected the item and have determined it is suitable for the reason it is being purchased"

I other words, we know we sell unsafe cars but they are suposed to be bought by wrecking yards, recyclers and the public for use as parts cars or for repair.

Auto auctions are 100% for the dealers to dump lemons, damaged, unsafe or otherwise unsaleable cars in a hurry.

If you thought diffrent, you shouldn't have been there.
