An ex-works 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder that once finished second in class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans hit the Bonhams auction block yesterday and despite having a little trouble getting the car started for its moment in the Arizona sun, it still commanded a healthy $5.17 million dollars. That result is right in the middle of the car’s estimated selling price of $4.5 million to $5.5 million.
Amidst the myriad of classics set to star in Gooding & Company’s Scottsdale auction this year, this 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II stands out. It’s not just the car’s physical size, dwarfing many of the svelte and sleek post-war sports cars also being sold at the event, but also the car’s interesting history. One of the last models to be personally overseen by Sir Henry Royce, this Phantom II Continental is a variant on the larger Phantom II which was designed to be chauffeur driven.
While any Ferrari 275 GTB is a special car, if you’re looking to buy a truly unique example, look no further than the 1965 275 GTB “Speciale” that’s headed to Scottsdale auction week, courtesy of Gooding & Company auction house. Built from one of two 275 chassis given to Carrozzeria Pininfarina in 1964 from which to style the new 12-cylinder coupe.
If you dispute a bill with @frontier because they overcharged you $80 and they tell you that the case won't be sent to collections while it's under review, they'll just send it to collections anyway rather than follow up. #truestory
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".
