You can see ALL of the stories we have published this week by going directly to 

That’s what we’re working on here at !   Even though we’re near the end of our outdoor season....  our Roving Reporters are hitting every show they can find and sending them in so that we can share with you.

Last year we had  1268  show coverage articles....  we will  surpass that by a long shot this year.   Right now we have  85 Show Articles in our  “que”  waiting to go online ....  Our staffers are working hard to get them online so please be patient and check back often as we put many shows online every day !

New Features on the Horizon in our Classified Ad section.
We will never do anything to change the way our Car Ads are displayed or to interfere with them .....  so for those who only want to see Car Ads ...   our Vehicle Ads will always be the mainstay of our Classified Ads.    We do get requests quite often to add other categories though, and there are two that we think would be a good fit and be useful to many of our readers.  We’re adding an  “Employment” section for those in our industry who are looking for workers,  and those who are seeking employement,   AND  we’re adding a Real Estate Section which will contain only  properties that are geared toward Car Enthusiasts.... they must have 4+ Garage Spaces    and/or  a Shop to be listed.  We will also list  Automotive commercial property for sale.    We know that our car guy group of enthusiasts have special needs and wants in both their housing and their employment and we think we can provide a place for you to find the answers to those needs..  So stay tuned as these new categories will appear soon.

One More Thing .......   You may remember that last month we had some technical difficulties which resulted in some pages not displaying and some pages not  showing our banner ads.   Turns out this was as a result of some very fast growth in visitorship....  ( a good thing )  ...  and it has necessitated the purchase of  new servers.  We will be moving over to the new servers in  7-10 days and if all goes according to expectations you won’t even know until it’s all done and you experience much faster delivery of all of our content.  We are quadrupling the size and capability of our servers which will allow us  to do a lot of expansion in the future.  So stay tuned as  we GROW GROW GROW .... THANKS  to all of YOU !
