So I’ve officially been at this for a week now. It’s been a fun week, although a lot tougher and more time consuming than I expected. I think I’m going to start a post with a recurring theme every week.
It occurred to me that there are a lot of links out there that I visit very often, so I think I’ll start posting those up. In addition, I’m gonna post up a link to a cool car (or truck) that I’ve found trawling the internet. I’ll even give it a cheesy name. How about “AutomotiveBlogger.net’s Car Star of the Week”
Let’s get a few of the basics links every car person should know about out of the way in my first weekly links and Car Stars vehicle:
If you’re thinking of modifying your car and want to see how cool your car could look as well as how stupid it could possibly look, Car Domain is your destination. Users can join for free and post pictures of their cars and list modifications for everyone to see. Be aware of the extremely cheesy backgrounds on these pages. It’s very similar to MySpace, except for cars.
If you need to find a rare car or a part, Ebay Motors is your place. I once found a brand new set of center caps for some American Racing Progressive wheels that had been discontinued for a decade. This is also a great place to find cars for reference. If you can’t remember it was 67 or 68 Camaros that had the vent window (it was 67, BTW), a quick check on Ebay Motors will hook you right up.
While MSN for the most part has been a dreadfully useless place on the internet, MSN Autos has been a pleasant diversion of mine for over a decade now. What drew me in back then was the 360 degree views of cars and interiors that are commonplace in all reviews now. I don’t think the site has changed much in ten years, and that’s a good thing for me. At least they finally got rid of the one reviewer who constantly complained about the inadequacies of windshield wipers on every vehicle he ever reviewed.
This category will be added to every week with pertinent or just plain fun links. If you have a link you’d like to see here, feel free to contact me or leave a comment.
On to the AutomotiveBlogger.net’s Car Star of the Week May 6th-12th, 2007 -
I’ve had a thing for this car ever since the first time I saw it a few years ago. It’s long, low, black, and way over the top. Just my kind of ride.
The car is a 1965 Lincoln Continental owned by Ken and Brandee Leet from Hesperia, California who not only drive this 1965 Lincoln Continental everywhere, they got married in it at a Las Vegas drive through wedding chapel. That’s Brandee in the bottom pic. For more specs and lots more photos, go check out the feature at the SoCal Customs site
