Is it good idea to buy cars on auction?

Hi, I want to buy car on an auction and my friends always tell me that you can find good deals there. So far I chose these car auctions:
What other good car auctions do you know where you can bid on cars?
By the way I'm actualy searchin for an old Mustang.
These are cars that I want to bid on:

Here are VIN reports doesn't actually have any damage:
What car should I buy and let me know if there are other auctions where you can find good deals on cars?

Seized vehicle auctions are cool. The city repo's a vehicle that has too many tickets or fines and then auctions it off. You can get some expensive cars for a few thousand bucks.

They look nice, and I don't see any problem with buying cars from an auction. You need to be careful though especially if you are planning to get a classic car.

I've never tried buying from one. I prefer checking out the car's condition and test driving it before I pay for one. You can't do that in an auction.

Ive never purchased through auction but the idea puts me off. Like was said above me, the idea of not being able to test drive before hand really doesnt sit well with me but if you're willing to take a chance, some pretty awesome stuff can and has been had.


Anything out of mainstream will get you sh!tstormed on TST...
