What's nice is, with a little bit of internet sleuthing, most of these cars show up on the common sites such as Autotrader, Cars.com or Car gurus.
You have the option of not involving a third party anymore- for his "expertise" of plugging in the parameters of a search, "locating it" , and paying a premium.
Of course, there may be cars in the dealer networks that are not listed online, but, the lion's share are.
You just need decent communication skills, and if need be, the willingness and time to travel.
