what it's an auction for older cars that dealers/cops don't want. The cars usually been impounded or stolen and are up for sale, that's what i heard.

I would not go to an auto auction, only if i was in dire straights and needed a car bro.

An RSX probably won't be at the auction, maybe some celica's. I would go for the prelude, a solid car with an H22 in it ^_^. They are more than likely to have older cars there.

If you're gonna look for a celica, make sure you get a GTS!!
