If you have always wondered about buying a used car on line but haven’t quite made the plunge, sign up for our “Buying a Car on the Internet” event, to be held on Saturday, March 14th, in the meeting room at Dick Dyer Mercedes, 5825 Two Notch Road, Columbia, SC  29223.  The event will start at 11 am and lunch will follow.

Our presenter is Peachtree Section Vice President Gary Edwards.  Edwards is a life-long automobile enthusiast and has purchased a number of cars on ebay.  He writes a “Gary’s Garage” technical article for his section’s newsletter and is also a member of Carolinas Section.  Edwards comments, “Say it’s late in the evening and you’re looking at cars on eBay.  An auction for a 1994 Mercedes E320 cabriolet with 82,000 miles shows up with a very attractive “Buy It Now” price.   Do you - Decide to bid on it? - Buy it now?  - Ignore it and go on to the next listing?  Well, since Peachtree Section Past President Daryl Williams told me that if I wanted a cabriolet I should buy one while the prices were still affordable, I hit “Buy It Now” and bought it sight unseen.  Then a few months later I bought another car on ebay, and then another, and then another - and so on.”

He’ll cover tips and techniques for buying used cars over the internet, focusing primarily on ebay, but will also mention other sites like bringatrailer, cargurus, autotrader etc.  He’ll include a discussion of a number of transactions done over ebay, detailing the good and the bad aspects of the transactions.  Attendees will come away with an appreciation of the risks and benefits of buying a used car on line and a knowledge of ways to minimize the risk.

Lunch will include make-your-own sandwiches, salads, and dessert.  For questions, call event planner Michele Stine at (914) 924-7948 or Gary Edwards at (757) 831-9556.
