If you're looking for a GOOD used car, than go to a dealership and buy a new car or take your chances with a preowned car. If you're looking for a cheap car that you can either fix on your own for cheap using resources available to you than Copart and other auto auctions may benefit in your favor. I have used Copart for buying a donor car for myself or friends when building a car and you need more than just a few odd things here and there. Whatever you don't use, you can just sell.
Agreed 100%. The race shop that I work at on weekends will buy cars through Copart, usually in search of something very specific that they want to have either as spares, or if the car is good enough, to use as a shell for a track build.
