If you've ever wanted to learn more about government-seized vehicles, then you're in luck – because this article was written with you in mind.

Have you ever seen someone driving a beautiful car, a car straight out of your dreams, and think: "Wow, how can she/he afford that thing?" Does the very sight fill you with anxiety and despair?

Well, fear not!

Maybe this person bought her or his automobile at a government auto auction. The government is always seizing gorgeous vehicles from outlaws and those who couldn't or wouldn't pay their taxes. And you know where those government-seized vehicles go?

Are they sold for scrap metal, or donated to foreign nations, or given away as prizes on Wheel of Fortune? Nope. They're sold at auctions, auctions that are free for any adult with a valid driver's license to attend. Not only that, they're sold at sometimes ridiculously low prices.

Take the state of Florida.

Florida's state agencies put tens of thousands of cars up for auction-many of them relatively new and highly attractive-every week! And many of these cars are sold for one-tenth of their market value. (Florida's car auctions are also renowned for their friendly and helpful staff members.)

So if you've always wanted to cruise Miami Beach in a convertible that Scarface himself would want to be seen in, book your flight to the Sunshine State now. Of course, you don't have to travel to Florida to get a great government-seized vehicle.

Chances are equally lovely automobiles are being auctioned off this week just down the road from where you live.

To summarize, this article has given you a brief overview of what government-seized cars are all about, and how you can get your hands on a car that you may have thought was well outside of your budget, simply by visiting your local auto repo auction, and picking up an astonishing bargain. You really can find the car of your dreams if you're patient, and happy to visit many repo auctions until you find what you are looking for.
