Carroll Shelby became famous for stuffing a Ford V-8 into the engine bay of a small British sports car, turning the Sunbeam Alpine into a true Tiger. Back in that era, Chevrolet and Buick engines were used to make Italian sports cars more reliable. Now, a company in Kissimmee, Florida, is doing the same thing with off-road vehicles, inserting Chevrolet powertrains into the British-built Land Rover Defender.
A baker’s dozen of Ferraris, all from a single owner, most offered without reserve, has been consigned to RM Sotheby’s annual Monterey auction, scheduled for August 18-19 at Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center in downtown Monterey, California. The “Ferrari Performance Collection” comprises 13 cars spanning 50 years of Ferrari history and includes a 1961 250 GT SWB and a 1967 275 GTB/4.
Bonhams has announced the consignment of seven Group B rally cars from the estate of a collector for its August auction at the Quail Lodge in Carmel on the Monterey Peninsula. Bonhams noted that the cars are being made available for the first time in decades and will be offered without reserve. Sometimes known as the “Killer Bees” because of their dangerous but exotic performance on twisting rally circuits, the Group B cars still represent the peak of the sport to many people.
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".
