When you go to a car auction you need to be prepared. Get a list of the cars being sold at this auction and pick out all of the cars you may want to bid on. Then research these cars. Find the market value and decided what you are willing to bid on the cars. Set your maximum bid price before you ever start to bid and do not go over that price.
