My Car Quest Update – January 2013

by Mike –

My Car Quest recently turned two years old. In these two years the readership has grown from zero (well two if you count my wife and my mother) to several thousand visitors per month. In 2012 there were 358 posts – averaging nearly one per day.

The Google Page Rank has improved to PR5. Page Rank is a way that Google measures the value of a web site which reportedly helps determine Google search results. The Page Rank ranges from 0 to 10 with 10 being the best. Earning a PR5 in two years is pretty good.

You can check the Page Rank of any web site by entering the URL into the box on this site.

The biggest change on My Car Quest recently has been the addition of The Car Of The Day post where I write about a car that is for sale on the Internet that I would like to own – after all the name of this blog is My Car Quest. I hope you like this new addition. You can access all of the Car Of The Day posts from a menu link on the left in the green menu bar.

  1. Happy New Year, Mike! Since I’ve been a subscriber (about 3 months or so), I have not seen you yet elaborate your feelings on all the great British sportscars, except for Aston Martin and Sunbeam. What are your feelings and opinions on the Austin Healeys, Jaguars, the Triumphs, and the MG’s? On the American side, I know you love the Shelby Mustang, but what is you favorite year and style of Corvette (mine is the 1963 Sting Ray split-window coupe)? I am interested in your opinion, as are the other readers. Thanks for sharing! Glenn in the Bronx, NY

    • Thanks for the suggestions Glenn. It turns out that I have owned many British cars over the years. The first car that I bought myself was a 1974 Triumph TR6. I will write about British cars more soon.

      As for Corvettes anyone who was around in 1963 and old enough to remember, as I was, has to love these 1960s Corvettes with or without the two rear windows. I do not write very often about Corvettes because they are covered by so many other sources but I did write this post about Corvette Engines:

      Happy new year to you too.

  2. One of my favourite sites and I look forward to each new posting. Many happy road miles in 2013 in all of your magnificent machines and best in 2013.

  3. ~all the best for 2013, Mike. and thanks for the education and entertainment during 2012!!
