eBay, I got mine on there for like $30 shipped. It was an older model and it was used, but the liners pull out and they could be washed so after I got that done and cleaned the outside it turned out great. Unfortunately now its no longer up to spec, ugh. They have good deals though just keep watching, espcially if you have an off size head (read: not size large)

Also, helmets break in to the shape of your head...so a used one is seriously lacking compared to a new one.

www.newenough.com has some helmets in the closeout section for a decent price.

Most any M-rated helmet (like your snowmobile/ATV) will be completely legal for Autocross as well. The only downside of them is that they are designed to break apart on the initial impact, whereas specific auto racing helmets (like the Snell-rated helmets) are designed to stay together for several impacts, like bouncing off a roll cage 4-5 times.
