Tom Ensign is right up front about it: “I like things that are unusual.” And his 1957 Isetta 300 drives that point home, with its single door being right up front, and its single-cylinder engine being tucked behind a miniature hood on the right side of the pale yellow micro car. He was first exposed to Isettas when he skipped his college graduation in favor of a trip to the Museum of Transportation near St. Louis.
WICHITA, Kan. — At the tender age of 9, David Larson had already developed an eye for cool cars. There was one in particular that fascinated him, a jet black 1962 Corvette.“It belonged to a good friend of our neighbors in Elgin, Ill.,” he recalled. He would sit on a low retaining wall and wait for the Corvette to show up. But there was a small problem.“My father was a Ford man. He worked as a Ford mechanic and the only thing he drove was Fords.” And the Corvette was a Chevrolet.
If ever there was a “family pickup,” the black beauty that now belongs to Darrell Bacon has to be it. And it’s a rare machine, to boot: a 1937 Plymouth PT50 light duty truck. “Most people who see it say, `I didn’t know Plymouth made a truck,’ ” he says. Best estimates are that Plymouth built somewhere around 11,000 pickups that first year, with pickup production continuing until 1941.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
