The Central Coast of New South Wales has never really been regarded as one of Australia’s premier automotive locations. Lush beaches, high drug use, graffiti and Nike TNs as far as the eyes can see. But since 2015, the largest automotive museum in the Southern Hemisphere has been hiding in Gosford. Collector Tony Denny amassed a massive fortune thanks to his hugely successful AAA Auto used car dealership across the European continent.
PerformanceDrive has finally got its hands on the 2017 Ford Mustang GT, the American legend with staggering pent-up demand that hasn’t waned since its 2015 launch. This is unusual for a sports car, whose sales typically enjoy an initial spike, followed by a steady decline – note Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ. In fact, demand for the Mustang is growing, with 5967 local sales to the end of July compared with 3118 this time last year.
The SUV’s success story is still in full swing and probably isn’t quite near reaching its peak. SUV sales in Australia repeatedly set new benchmarks, especially in the mid-size class. Previously, ‘four wheel drives’ were off-road-capable wagons, with live axles all round, generally a ladder frame construction underneath, and less refinement than a conventional sedan or wagon.
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".
