Anyone who has searched for cars to purchase on the internet knows there's thousands of websites, blogs, and newsletters to maneuver before you finally get to the examples you're looking for. Enter Zero260.com, an automotive enthusiast website that does a lot of the dirty work for us.
Zero260 co-founders Devon Crail and John Goodman had long been buying and selling cars and spending a great deal of time combing the web for interesting vehicles. When C-19 hit, and everyone was spending a lot more time in front of the computer, the idea came about to enlist a tech savvy friend to build an actual website where they could put all their searches and results in one place. That's when Zero260 was born.
At first the guys had fun sharing the more unique and obscure search results with their personal circle of car enthusiast friends. With a bit of encouragement, they began to share the site with the general public. Several friends jumped on board to write their personal take on the cars for sale that interested them the most, commenting on special features and even valuations. The team next began sending these posts to anyone who wanted to subscribe via a free daily email. Since there were so many interesting cars for sale, and not enough time to write about each of them, Fast Finds were featured in the daily send as well. These were cars without a write-up, but that the team felt were worth checking out.
Today, each Daily Post or Fast Find always directs readers and subscribers to the original for sale ad on the internet where the car can be directly purchased. Zero260 daily posts include everything from pre- and post-war vehicles to muscle cars. You can even find examples of that classic Ford Bronco or Toyota Landcruiser you've always wanted. Readers are encouraged to engage by commenting on posts about their experience with the vehicle, or if they agree or disagree with what the team has written. When considering what cars to feature in Daily Posts and Fast Finds, the Zero260 team looks for examples that answer the questions: Is it a great deal? Is it an honest example? Is it weird or uncommon? Does it have a great story?
For those who have followed the Bring a Trailer site over the past decade, one is reminded of early BaT days before the site took on an online auction format. For car enthusiasts, one needn't be on a mission to buy or sell a vehicle to get lost reading past and present Daily Posts on Zero260, for education or for amusement.
Site visitors can set up a myriad of car searches for British, American, Asian, and other flavors, as well as by era and categories such as project car or survivor. Check out the site and sign up for free: Zero260.com.
