For decades we’ve seen the national auto displays, where the significant producers roll out their new versions and a few flashy “prototypes” which will never find an assembly line. Then you will find the pole and custom shows, populated thirty decades ago by twenty- and – thirty-somethings and filled these days with middle-aged and older automobile enthusiasts who still adore classic American cars, both inventory and at all the various permutations of personalization they’ve gone through over time.
For those who lived American Graffiti and people who live for your foreign classics, if you’re involved whatsoever in the building, maintaining or participating in the fellowship that’s assembled around classics and exotics, you should consider using a website.
First of all, it is a great way to showcase your cars or car, whatever you have in the garage that is carefully driven once a week and towed, shiny, to auto shows. Secondly, it is a communications device for like-minded contractors or collectors that one interested in your specialty – if aged Corvettes or sixties Alfa Romeos. There are current websites for regional and national organizations in addition to a number of sites which focus on classified advertisements for scarce automobile parts.
A personal website, however, will give you a far different kind of interaction with your fellow wrench addicts. Instead of searching impersonal national sites for components or individuals with similar interests, then you can use your website to attract them to you. Proper use of keywords and maybe a classified advertisement or two online will bring potential contacts to you personally, and there they will locate a site with photos of your car(s), your shop and a little history about your participation.
You don’t need to find contacts such as that at shows or in pulp books for parts and project cars. A properly designed site for a car enthusiast that elaborates on his area of interest and the history of his automobiles will give that individual a potentially national social part in the organization of his peers, in the same way, the children are using MySpace to convey.
You can advertise for components, show vehicles for sale – with unlimited photographs and videos, even if you wish – and place the word out for a vehicle that you may be seeking for your next project. This approach will also limit your needs for entering advertisements in national places. No more details listed in long paragraphs performed in miniature printing – and no more photos of your car on a page or within a lineup of heaps of other vehicles.
