What’s the most valuable British car to ever sell at auction? As of this past weekend, there’s a new answer to that question: the 1956 Aston Martin DBR1/1 sold by RM Sotheby’s for $22,550,000 at its 2017 Monterey sale. The famed Aston sold to a telephone bidder last Friday evening, who was undoubtedly enamored with the car’s provenance, which includes an overall win at the 1959 Nurburgring 1000KM and such drivers as Carroll Shelby, Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham and Roy Salvadori.
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — 3.5 inches. That’s how much wider the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is than a garden variety Hellcat. You may have noticed as well that the Widebody’s stylish fender flares are essentially the same ones you’ll find on Dodge’s ultimate drag strip destroyer, the Demon. Beyond the bulging bodywork, that extra width translates into 1.6 inches of extra front track, 2.0 inches of extra rear track, and 30 mm of extra tire width on either side.
If we can agree that the best car shows are the free ones, then Concours d’Lemons California is so good that they almost ought to pay you to go. This year’s pointed counterpoint to Pebble Beach took place Saturday on the grounds of the Seaside City Hall, and honored the Muntz Jet and the Chevrolet Cosworth Vega, which was represented by eight examples of a really neat little car that should have worked. But didn’t. But should have.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
