March 25 - March 31, 2024

1. Auctions sales statistics

The volume of cars at auctions has rebounded and returned to its earlier levels, ensuring a dependable supply of vehicles. Despite this temporary dip, there have been no significant disruptions in vehicle availability. Both auctions have consistently maintained a flow of cars, contributing to seamless operations and a stable inventory for buyers.
Performance metrics, including the number of cars sold and approval ratings, have not only weathered the minor reduction in car volume but are also showing signs of improvement and growth.
In summary, insurance auto auctions provide a stable and consistent environment, with evidence of car volume returning to previous levels. Operations continue to run smoothly, and key performance indicators are not only stable but also showing positive growth trends.

2. Car of the week

My personal pick of the week!


Final bid: $44,625 USD

The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 1LZ isn't your average Corvette. Imagine a sleek, aerodynamic silhouette whispering performance, housing a supercharged 6.2L V8 that roars with 650 monstrous horsepower. The 1LZ trim focuses on pure driving thrills. It might lack some of the luxuries of higher trims, but it makes up for it in affordability and a focus on performance. Sharp handling and precise steering make the Z06 a blast to carve canyons. The 2017 Corvette Z06 1LZ caters to drivers who crave uncompromising performance.

The 1994 Acura NSX wasn't just a car, it was a legend in the making. Imagine a sleek, low-slung silhouette with iconic pop-up headlights, whispering Japanese engineering prowess. Unlike some of its Italian rivals, the NSX focused on pure driving pleasure and timeless design. Forget about massive V8s. The NSX hid a technological marvel: a mid-mounted, all-aluminum 3.0L V6 engine. It wasn't about chasing the highest horsepower numbers, but about a high-revving, exhilarating experience that delivered a thrilling 270 horsepower.

4. Scam of the week

I've found cars from dealers that had the most auctions or did impressive repairs. Remember to check every vehicle of your interest at Copart and IAAI on autoAstat.

2022 FORD F-350

It's always important to check autoAstat before buying cars at salvage auto auctions.


5. Cars with the most bids

Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
