New Old Car of the Day is Back!

Just finished my second post on the newly revived New Old Car of the Day blog. This is a fun site to play with as it allows me to get out of my comfort zone and take a look around at cars I normally wouldn’t pay any mind. Some surprising finds for sure!

The site focuses on original, exceptionally low mileage cars. Cars that have somehow survived over 25 years or more with very little mileage and decent-to-exceptional condition is the basic criteria for the site.

I had originally started this site based on the postings of a friend I met on the forum VWVortex. After some time had passed we lost touch and I haven’t been able to reach him. But I’ve always loved the idea of this website and figured it was time to revive it.

I hope you’ll take a look: http://newoldcaroftheday.com

I’ve got a few other blogs I’m hoping to start before the end of the year, stay tuned!

New MotoringBlogs Website: New Old Car of the Day

I’ve started a new website with a VWVortex member, Mr. Variety, who has a knack for finding extremely low mile classic cars on eBay. Introducing NewOldCaroftheDay.com:

Today’s find, an amazing 736 mile 1973 Porsche 911 — for an eye watering $185k!

My Buddies From RoadtoChumpCar.com are Headed to Willow Springs Tomorrow

Gabe and Leo are packing as we speak to head down to Willow Springs for the next ChumpCar World Series event. The name for the series may not be terribly flattering, but the guys take the racing seriously and the budget minded series makes the reality of racing, well, real! Gabe and Leo are building their own car for competition over at The Road To Chumpcar, but in the meantime, they are helping out with the Toyota MR2 team of Free Range Racing. Here are some pics from the last event that Leo drove for them at Infineon:

Free Range Racing at Infineon co-driven by TheRoadToChumpCar.com

I’ll be following them on Twitter this weekend and wish them both the best. Good luck guys!

Announcing the MotoringBlogs Automotive and Motorcycling Blog Network

First I want to say how much fun I’ve had bringing readers at dancrouchblog.com the diamonds in the rough over the past 4 years. I have really enjoyed connecting with like minded enthusiasts and I look forward to making that experience even more meaningful moving ahead.

Now it is time to take my career more seriously, and that means making a transition from passive enthusiast to eventual full-time automotive and motorcycling, web and blogging specialist. I’m a bit premature in the announcement of this plan, but I want to keep dancrouchblog.com readers in the loop!

The most immediate and visible change is that I am splitting the topics that are most popular at dancrouchblog.com into their own blogs: German Cars For Sale Blog and Rare SportBikes For Sale. If you’re a fan of dancrouchblog.com, you’ll love these two blogs! They both follow the familiar “best of for sale” listings and resource guides you’re used to at this site, but both have much nicer .rss and email subscription options than I have utilized before. I hope you’ll consider subscribing. If not, don’t worry, I’ll still be highlighting these new blogs on dancrouchblog.com on a regular basis.

These two blogs are the first to be part of my new automotive blog network, MotoringBlogs. My hope for the network is two fold:

  1. Provide greater focus and detail to the automotive and motorcycling niche that the enthusiast searches for. The ability to provide more than a highlight reel or summary of information, and instead cater to the intense and educated enthusiast with detailed and opinionated editorial blog content.
  2. Build a network of authors, websites, and enthusiast readers that grow together to gain access and knowledge via an entertaining and informative blogging style to address sports cars, motorcycles, amateur motorsports, and the latest in breaking industry news.

The MotoringBlogs concept is in it’s infancy, but will grow quickly. More details will follow in the coming months. I will of course keep dancrouchblog.com readers informed first!

I hope you’ll find MotorBlogs to be an even better resource than dancrouchblog.com has been and I welcome your feedback in the comments below.
