...WELCOME...

Our goal is to establish a useful (and very popular) Portal for the free thinking automotive enthusiast. The content and membership are free, supported by the commercial ad spaces placed within.

The site is divided into many sections, each designed to appeal to a slightly different faucet of automotive interest. Brand coverage will be very broad, covering everything from Chevrolets to Hondas, as well as rare brands such as Ferrari and Lamborgini.

1. The specifications section will evolve into one of the most complete, practical, and up-to-date technical specifications, dimensional information, and performance data ever assembled into one place. Sub sections will cover such areas as Engines, Transmissions, Chassis & Engine Compartments, and Performance Data for most all makes of cars and trucks.

2. The Tech Subjects section will contain subsections on such important subjects as Emissions, Interfacing and Interchanging Electronic Components, Engine Cooling, Backyard How-To, and World Wide Resources.

3. The On-Line Magazine section will contain editorial and review content similar to traditional print media. The "Just Released" subsection will consist of aftermarket manufacturer press releases, and "In The Works" will hilite a current swap of broad interest.

4. The Interactive section will be the one with the most diverse and fresh content. Sub-sections will be divided into the Message Board, Photo Bulletin Board, Classified Buy & Sell, Auctions, and a Car Magazine Article Database.

The on-line magazine has a unique advantage over conventional print media of real time statistics. Available technology will also enable critical assesment of consumer reaction and effectiveness of manufacturer and retail ad campaigns. A stale ad can be detected immediatly, and changed to maximize results. Changing content and interactive features will ensure a steadily growing stream of do-it-yourself consumers of this much sought after automotive demographic.


...WHAT'S NEW...

5-3-00...Finally, some structure...
Now that some structure has been established, the existing pages are beginning to take shape. The first phase, adding links to content-related websites, gives immediate access to existing information. While this first phase will never be complete, we can now begin the long process of authoring pages on pressing technical subjects.
Feel free to e-mail any tips or suggestions you might have to: grannys@sos.net
