I have a little extra disposable cash and I have a buddy who regularly goes to dealer auctions. He offered to take me to one when he found out I was looking for a cheap car or truck. Anyone ever buy from an auction before. Did you have good or bad luck. One of my friends I grew up with who works at a chevy dealership said that it could be a gold mine or you can buy a money pit. He has seen some trade in's that they immediately took to the auction block because a customer pulled one over on a dealer bad.
