Racing analyst and TV personality Rutledge Wood spent several hours on the opening day of 2017 SEMA Show chatting with fans while standing proudly next to his recently rebuilt 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. The Mustang was purchased on eBay Motors, with parts handpicked from eBay’s wide selection of parts and accessories. The Fastback’s dream team of builders included Rut, automotive artist K.C.
Installing a pre-painted replacement bumper can be a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to having a conventional auto-body shop do the job. Last year, we discussed this approach in our post, “Paint A Part: Super Fast DIY Body Repair.” You can order a pre-painted bumper on Paint A Part’s eBay Store. That’s what we did for the replacement bumper of a 1999 Honda Civic HX, with its original Vogue Silver still in good shape.
A pre-owned car can represent a great value. But what’s the best method for evaluating a car’s condition? The process is not as difficult as you might think. Here’s a helpful 10-point checklist. 1. Start with a little research. Ask the owner for written maintenance and repair records. Many vehicle listings on eBay Motors include records in the Vehicle History Report tab. One smart extra step is to search the NHTSA website to see if the model has been the subject of any safety recalls.
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".
