I've been watching BaT for a few years mostly to look at the pictures and read the comments. Personally I would never buy a car, sight unseen, from an auction. I don't care how professional the pictures are. Of course I always look at the Ferraris and especially the 308's that come up but I've become disenchanted with the comments section - a lot of banter by people regurgitating tired old wive's tales about how the timing belts are going to explode or how much they hate red Ferraris. It's still good for entertainment and there are occasionally interesting cars listed but I prefer the old fashioned method - face to face, look it over take it for a test drive, agree on a price and shake hands. That's how I bought mine.
