    I used to work at this exact auction driving the cars through on a Tuesday and Thursday! I remember some of the gypsies selling a car doing everything they could to make sure it drove through the auction. Sold as seen! There were some amazing deals as well though. Good times

    I wish our car auctions are like American ones, you could easily go to a car auction and find a 1970s Pontiac next to a Porsche 944 in England the most exciting thing is Ford KA

    I've bought a few cars from West Oxfordshire Motor Auctions myself. A Fiat Chunk of Cheese in which I once drove all the way to John O'Groats down to Land's End and then home, a Renault Laguna which expired about one month later with a broken gearbox and a RenaultSport Clio in which I had fun on Track Days a few times. I paid £900 for that car and ended up keeping up with or even passing much more expensive machinery at Castle Combe. A great car until floodwater ruined it.

    Gosh they think cars were there on 200,000 mi are crazy high miles. That's such a normal mileage in the USA for older cars. My 2004 bmw has 176k and my 1987 325e has 224k miles. They both still run great. I had a Jeep Cherokee with 325k miles and it was in great shape.

    When going to car auctions it is always worth remembering that you can always just slip out and get out and away when you instantly regret your winning bid. If you wait until towards the end there will be a number of vehicles coming through for a second time, these are the ones that didn't get paid for by the winning bidders.

    Someone should have paid you £500 for taking it home...... never understood why anyone would buy a Vauxhall, shit build quality, couldn't pull you out of bed........ would rather use a bus than buy one. Never owned one, but I've driven a couple........ if I phone for a taxi and a vauxhall turns up I tell the driver I haven't booked a taxi

      Had wondered if they were “bidding against the wall”? An illegal practice, still all too common in British Car Auctions. Used to artificially boost their profits 🙁.

    auction fever, do your research, establish your MAX bid, do NOT go over guide price and check vehicle before the auction, then you will not buy an automatic by mistake. Looks like a good buy though
