Tim Fogarty's What’s Going On 



CRUISER PICKS

A rare 1971 Chevrolet Corvette ZR2 convertible, one of only two ever made, will cross the block at Mecum's Indianapolis auction this May, and it's expected to draw a seven-figure bid.

The Ford Thunderbird launched for the 1955 model year with a fairly conventional lineup of engine options, but the Blue Oval also experimented with something quite unorthodox. The company once stuffed a gas turbine engine into a 1955 Thunderbird.

Gentlemen,

We made significant updates to our site including the Shows & Events page!  Take a look:  https://www.collectorcarguide.net/events

  1. You will see that we have broken down the events into event categories.

     2.  We added an Event Submission form:  https://www.collectorcarguide.net/add-your-event

I value feedback from you both so I have a question? 

While we would prefer a link when someone submits an event listing, currently there are required fields for an Organization Name and Event Website or Registration URL (or social media page like Facebook), how many of the events you promote in the past year that do not have an organization name or website link / social media page (such as Facebook) to link?

Chuck, for example the Brookville Potomac Car Show (this weekend) does not have a weblink so if we require a link, you would not be able to enter that event.  But it would be better if we had a link for any show in case there is no phone number or another way to contact the host of the event.

Also Tim,  you could enter your event on this form as opposed to providing it on the spreadsheet.    I think the spreadsheet would still be easier for both of us.  If you prefer the template, I will send you a revised one.  Please advise.

Thanks and have a great weekend!,

Rob Parr
