Donated Cars Make for Affordable Classics!

Even donated cars can have class. Here's a 1966 Rolls-Royce!

We’ve touched on the topic of car donation here in the past. Donating a car to a reputable nonprofit agency can benefit the donor by providing a tax deduction while generating money for the charity. The bottom line: Donating cars can help make sure people get the help they need.

It really is a win-win situation.

But what happens to the cars that are donated, and how might a car shopper benefit from someone else’s donation?

Read on and be surprised, as I was, at some of the cool, classic and fun cars that go up for sale after getting donated.

Kars4Kids is a nonprofit with over a decade’s worth of experience in car donation. The agency uses car donations to fund programs helping with educational services, youth development, community and family outreach, and more.

Donated cars are taken in, then put up for auction. Take a look at just a few of the fun classics either up for sale or recently sold to proud new owners. More can be found at the Kars4Kids Garage website.

Of course, these cars aren’t in prime condition, but they can be had for pretty cheap and would make fantastic project vehicles or fun additions to the weekend driving rotation!

Have you ever considered buying a previously donated car? Which of these would you take home?
