Step By Step Guide On How To Purchase An Ideal Used Car

For people who are on a tight budget, buying used cars is the best option and you should consider trying Buckingham Drive Autos used car dealers. You will not only find the right car that you are looking for but you will also have the chance to find the one that is suitable for the budget that you have. Just in case that this is your first take into buying used cars then you should read the rest of this article so you will know the step by step guide process that you need to do to get the best deals in town.

1. The first thing that you need to do is research on the different cars available in the market today. This will give you an idea what type of cars are being sold right now thus giving you the opportunity to decide which type of car is most suited for you. Knowing the specifications of each car can be beneficial especially for first time buyers like you.

2. List down all the cars that you are considering to help you narrow down your choices and eventually it can help you decide on which car you really like. With all the cars available, you will certainly reach that point wherein you will be confused. That is why it is important to have a list because this can serve as your guide all throughout your search process.

3. You need to check the prices for each car. The Buckingham Drive Autos service has all the necessary information that you need. They list down the prices of each used car that they are selling together with the recent photo of the automobile. You can even send out an inquiry and rest assured that your mail will be answered the soonest possible time.

4. Now that there is a specific car that you are looking at, it is time to visit the shop. By doing so, you can see the car first hand and not just the ones that you see in various photos. Not that these photos are not reliable but it is still a good practice for used car buyers to see the condition of the car physically. Remember, you cannot just rely on the words being said by the seller. Seeing it first hand will help you come up with a decision that is right for you.

5. Before sealing the deal you need to check the papers of the car so as to make sure that you won’t encounter any problem later on. If all the papers and licenses are okay then you are good to go. You just have to be clear with the buyers with regards to the rules that they implement.

Given all the information listed above, you are now ready to purchase used cars that you have set your eyes on. Since careful research has been done, I do not think that you will ever have a problem but in case you do, you can always come back to the shop and report to them whatever it is you are having problems with. Hopefully at the end of the day you will be able to find the one that is really meant for you. So, for all your automobile needs, you can take Buckingham Drive Autos on your list of some good source for second hand vehicle dealerships.

Perth's 'hovering car'

By Stephen Hutcheon
January 30, 2006 - 12:08PM
The hovering car of Bicton, circled. Inset: a closer view.The hovering car of Bicton, circled. Inset: a closer view.
Eagle eyed users of the satellite imaging service Google Earth have spotted what appears to be a car hovering above the ground in a suburban Perth car park.
The photo is of a car park just off Honour Avenue at Point Walter in the affluent south western suburb of Bicton. The spot is a popular picnic location on the banks of the Swan River.
A number of cars are shown in parking bays and the vehicle in question appears to hovering above the ground nearby, its shadow clearly visible beneath.
Google Earth images are mostly taken by satellites - and sometimes by aircraft - within the past three years and there are no "live" images on the site.
The intriguing image was reported last week by the British IT news website, The Register.
One the the website's readers subsequently visited the very spot and sent in photos showing that there were no unusual structures there that could explain the phenomenon.
Other sceptical readers wrote in insisting the image was an optical illusion and was either a bus shelter, a pergola, a hole in the ground. One said it was obviously "Harry Potter and his friends on vacation".
Google Earth, launched last year, allows users to zoom across the planet and drill down to a height of about 300 metres. The program also has "tilt" function to give a side or angled view of an area or object.
Cars and boats are clearly visible at this level and in some areas, where even higher definition images are available, people can be seen.
The Google service has spawned a group of devoted followers who scour the satellite images for strange sightings. Users in the past have spotted a Stealth bomber parked on a runway in California, commercial planes in mid-flight and an image of what appears to be a ship on its side in a river estuary in Scotland.
The service has been critcised for giving terrorists a bird's eye view of sensitive areas, such as the Lucas Heights reactor in Sydney and Parliament House in Canberra.
It has also given stickybeaks an opportunity to peer into neighbourhood backyards and the home of the rich and famous.
(The hovering car can also been seen in this image on the Google Local service. People who have downloaded the free Google Earth software can see the car image here.)
What is it? Let us know your theories.

Top Gear Live set for Perth Debut
Following sell out performances in Europe, the world famous Top Gear Live car theatre show is en route to Perth for the first time and is all set to arrive with an earth shattering bang.  Presented by Jeremy Clarkson and James May along with Top Gear Australia’s very own Shane Jacobson, the show will bring all the mates, motoring and mucking about from the small screen to a live theatre experience.
This adrenaline fuelled show, which will be at the Burswood Dome 8, 9 & 10 December and features some of the worlds most expensive, powerful and absurdly modified cars.

Car football featuring Rascals and Robin Reliants, is bound to be the cause of some sensational silliness as matches are played out live on stage. Parts, panels and sparks are sure to fly – and that’s just before kick-off.
Top Gear’s The Stig, never far from the action, takes his pick of the star cars, demonstrating his renowned skills behind the wheel of a Ford Cobra Mustang and a fully transparent car (a world first), continuing the show’s tradition of making the seemingly impossible, possible.

Clarkson and May will be adding their usual dose of juvenile bickering to the proceedings and Jacobson will have to be on top form to compete in the various challenges presented to them. NASA-sanctioned (kind of) rocket cars, white goods vehicles and the car football are just some of the challenges that will see them go head-to-head on stage with undoubtedly hilarious consequences.
“We are excited to be visiting Perth for the first time.  Australians get us and we get them.  I guess when you think about it Australia and Britain are two countries that can tease each other and get away with it,” said Clarkson.
Don’t miss the world’s biggest motoring entertainment live show. Packed with heaps of pyro, noise, spectacle and mischief it’s sure to have audiences on the edge of their seats.
