    looking for a simple bot to scrape data websites like autotrader and similar classifieds.

    - I want a way to capture name, email and VIN (optionally phone #)
    - I need a way to choose by location ( distance from ZIP) and by price

    let me know if you can do something like that, send me a PM

    I am open to suggestions

    Thanx for pms guys, just to clarify - I am looking for low cost solution under $100 for now. I have been working online since 2006 and am aware of several outsourcing sites and had ebooks and software made before. But this however is very small on the side project for own use. I rather work with bhw guys on this than oDesk.

    I would like to get info from autotrader and ebayclassics at least. Your solution should make more financial sense to me than paying $3.33/h someone to to this manually.

    Anyways guys I am going to Santa Cruz to the beach and won't be around for rest of the day but would appreciate more info via pm. I am open for suggestions and a reality check:).
    Thx

    I can build a scraping software, but the VIN is captcha protected.

    If you are able to scrape for fun I have a new car site that you are welcome to try and put together a scraping option.

    I know this thread is old but I have a script that does this for a given zip and distance from a past project. PM me if you are interested.

    Dealer Name, Dealer Address, Dealer Phone, Price, Mileage, Make, Model, and even the photo of the car.
