We want your stories of buying a car at auction!

Published: 01 November 2012

CAR magazine needs case studies of people who've bought cars at auction – we'd love to hear your stories of buying secondhand under the hammer.

Have you bought a car from an auction house? Perhaps stole a bargain and saved thousands of pounds compared with a forecourt purchase? Or had a nightmare, bought a dog and would never return again?

Whatever your experience, we'd love to hear your tale.

How to be a CAR magazine case study

To share your story, please click 'Add your comment' at the foot of this page and tell us succinctly – in less than 100 words – a brief précis of your experience at auction, including a detail of what you bought and why your story would interest us.

We won't be able to include all your tales, but we'll pick a handful of the best, contact the contributors and ask them for a fuller description.

Please note to be considered for publication, we'd need a photo of you with the car you bought at auction. Thanks in advance – please comment away!
