A CAR salesman has revealed how he makes thousands by buying cheap cars at auction and selling them on for eye-watering prices.
Brandon from Car Questions Answered took to YouTube to explain how second-hand dealers make whopping profits by acquiring stock at bargain rates.
The motors expert bought seven cars at auction, with each of them netting him around $1,000 profit.
