buy cheep....    place on concrete blocks in back yard...

sit back and enjoy them rusting to pieces while you watch..

there are like 55 different web sites here.. so what ever kind of motorized device .. there might be a specific magazine for it..

taking your mechanic with you to inspect them...

realizing that if you don't know how to do most of the work.. that its going to cost you 2 to 3 times what the car is possibly going to sell for...     and if you cobble it together.. it is NOT going to sell or even be safe to drive..

good reasons to buy a used car:

   * You'll save money on insurance.
   * Bigger bargains are possible for the smart used car shopper.
   * Used cars are more reliable today than ever before.
   * Some used cars are still under the factory warranty.
   * Most new carmakers now sell certified used cars, which include warranties.
   * The history of a used car can easily be traced using the vehicle identification number (VIN).
   * If you buy from a private party, the negotiation process is less stressful.

I think buying a used car that only has a couple of years on it and is in mint condition is really the best way to go.

You should study about car models, prices of cars from different places which you want to buy and also its technical specifications. After that you can easily compare their prices, pick up and conditions.

Buying a used car privately

   Don't buy a car on 'private sale' terms if you suspect the seller might be a dealer.
   If you call in response to an advert, say you're calling 'about the car you advertised'. If the seller has to ask which car, they may be a dealer.
   Be wary of adverts quoting mobile numbers or numbers that appear in several ads.
   Don't let the owner bring the car to you or meet you in a layby, petrol station or similar – view it at their home, in daylight.
   Take someone with you for company and security
   Does the seller really appear to be the owner?
       Is it their home?
       They should be familiar with the car and its controls.

General advice for buying a used car

Wherever you choose to buy, here are some general tips on buying a used car.

   Budget well:
       include the cost of insurance, tax, and any work that may be needed.
   Do your homework:
       check our price guide and compare similar cars in the classifieds so you know as much as you can about the value of different cars to avoid being overcharged.
       Research the seller if possible. If you're buying from a dealer, make sure they are registered traders, and are members of an industry body like SMMT or RMI.
   Never view a car in the rain, in poor light or at night.
       You won't be able to evaluate the condition of the car effectively – water obscures scratches, dents and other problems. Make sure you can see the vehicle clearly and from all angles.
   Ask about the car's service history:
       check any documentation provided, including current and previous MOT certificates.
   Insist on seeing the V5 vehicle registration document:
       the registration document shows the registered keeper and NOT the legal owner
       check the name of the present keeper
       is the seller the registered keeper?
       if not, why are they selling it for someone else?
       Use the other keeper details on the V5C to do further research – contact them to find out more about when they owned the car, what work was done and how many miles they did in it
   Check the seller has a current MOT certificate and certificate of insurance:
       if the car is three years old or more, make sure there's a continuous series of annual MOT certificates
       see if the mileage on these certificates agrees with the service records
       double check that the mileage increases at a consistent rate each year.
   Handle with care:
       be wary of anything that seems like a real bargain, or has a very low mileage for its age
       to help you avoid making a mistake when you buy a used car, get an AA Car Data Check
       if you do decide to go it alone, use our DIY inspection checklist to make sure you look the car over thoroughly.
   Check the service record:
       ensure that the cam belt has been replaced according to the manufacturer's recommended intervals. Contact the dealer who stamped the service records at the appropriate time interval and ask if they completed the required work on the vehicle.
       if the record's not clear it will have to be replaced – if a belt fails, you might have to buy a whole new engine.
   Check the handbook:
       Confirm how the security system works.
       Find out what keys were provided when the car was new. Modern car keys are expensive to replace, particularly the coloured 'master' key provided by some manufacturers to programme new spare keys to the car. There should be at least one spare key – ask why if there isn't.
   Test-drive the car before committing yourself:
       it's the only way to assess whether the car meets all your needs
       you'll find out about its mechanical condition too.
       If possible, do a cold start and a hot start, and see if there are any differences in performance.
   Be vigilant:
       Look for mismatched panels and colours on doors, bonnet and tailgate. These can indicate that the car has been repaired after a shunt.
       Look for traces of spray paint on door handles, window seals and mouldings.
       Check the engine bay – if it's been power-washed clean, that may remove evidence of any fluid leaks. Make sure your test drive is lengthy, and check under the bonnet again for any evidence of leaks.
   Don't be put off by dirty seats and grubby carpets:
       After all, these can be cleaned.
       However stains on internal fabric head–linings (roof coverings) are impossible to remove completely.
       Check for damage underneath any fitted seat covers. Seats can be expensive to replace.
   Go on, haggle:
       many sellers will have allowed for bargaining when they set the price
       remember your budget?
   Don't be pressured into buying.
       There are always other vehicles out there
       If it's too good to be true, then be on your guard – bargains are few and far between. If a seller is selling cheap, ask yourself (and them) why. And be wary of 'sob stories' – change of job, break-up of relationship, moving aboard, new baby on the way. Don't be swayed by these influencing factors. You're buying a car to help yourself, not anyone else.
   Don't hand over money until you've agreed collection or delivery:
       check exactly what's included in the price
       include any work that the seller has agreed to do.
       Make sure you get a receipt that details the vehicle, price, terms of sale and sellers details.
