The internet has become an endless resource of information, inspiration, and admiration for auto enthusiasts everywhere. Social media in particular has connected fans, DIYers, and hobbyists like nothing before. With so many people and so much to discover, curation sites like Pinterest and Svpply have risen up to give users an easy way to collect, sort, and reference items related to their interests. In this vein, eBay Motors is happy to announce the start of a new series: The Finders.
The Finders is a series in which social media influencers and auto experts will curate unique collections of items within eBay Motors based on their own areas of focus and expertise. Each Finder will create a blog post highlighting and explaining their choices, which will appear on their own sites as well as on the eBay Motors Blog. Overseeing this will be a lead Finder, who will curate their own collections in addition to providing their own expertise and insight into the program. As The Finders delves deeper and deeper into the automotive world, additional Finders will be brought in to cover increasingly niche topics.
The Finders will start with an impressive list of contributors, starting with AutoGuide.com’s Colum Wood, who will act as Lead Finder. Scotty Kilmer will be handling DIY items. Donald Buffamanti from AutoSpies.com will cover luxury parts and accessories. The gang from Hooniverse.com (Kamil Kaluski, Jeff Glucker, and Tim Odell) will work on cars and mods, with The Auto Channel’s Mark Fulmer chiming in on cars as well. We aren’t leaving out the ‘two wheels good’ crowd either; James McBride of Silodrome.com will act as a Finder searching out the coolest motorcycles on eBay Motors and shining some light on them.
The Finders series is an exciting new look at the world of eBay Motors that will hopefully spark interest in our community members in cars, trucks, motorcycles, mods, parts, and accessories they had never considered before. Be sure to keep up with The Finders as it develops and feel free to join the conversation!
