Car Auctions

Motor City Online had nine available car auction houses. Each auction house featured a specific selection of vehicles and each had individual rare cars. Cars with removed chassis parts were the rarest and could be sold at a large price up with the seven-figure range or higher.

Only Vintage rated cars could be sold fender-less, bumper-less, hood-less and with removed running boards. Classic, Muscle and Sports rated cars could only be sold hood-less.

Righteous Rides

  • Climb the ranks, earn the deals!
  • Type: Showroom

"Righteous Rides opened shop in December, 2001 and features some pretty high-end cars for you to buy. There's a caveat, though: stock is limited, so you are limited to purchasing only one of these fine sets of wheels. And to make it more interesting, you can only purchase certain cars depending upon your window."

Player Auction

U-Sell Auto Barn

  • Motor City's only consignment auto auctions!
  • Type: Player Auction

"Short of dealing directly with other players, U-Sell is the place to go if you want to bid on some of the rarest bodies and coolest wheels in Motor City owned by citizens themselves. You can even put up your own cars and bodies for auction. Advertisement rates are relatively cheap, ranging from $5 for a one-day ad to $24 for a seven day ad. Be warned that it may take you some time to find your custom-built dream car due to the high volume of ads."

Part Auctions

Motor City Online had one Part Auction house entitled - "Sparky T's Auto Parts." It was responsible for the Parts Catalogue of the Parts Store.

Part Auctions were the only place to find rare parts that weren't available in the parts catalogue. These rare parts would be very expensive but usually the best and most durable available.

An alternate option was to trade parts and cash with other players using the in-game trade system.

Sparky T's Auto Parts

  • Type: Parts and Auctions

"Sparky T's is the place to be if you want to buy some great parts for good prices. The auction section of Sparky T's is the best place to get cheap deals on parts, and you can also bid on some pretty rare pieces as well."
