CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The MCG™ Knowledge Base can be accessed free by any interested car collector or enthusiast who becomes a member of the MyClassicGarage.com website. "The value of the MCG™ Knowledge Base is endless," said Jim Dodge, My Classic Garage Marketing Director. "Production numbers for a particular year, make, and model are a valuable resource when writing descriptions for classic car dealers. Factory paint specs for a year, make, and model are useful for anyone planning a restoration. All this information in one place doesn't exist elsewhere."
Claiming a virtual garage at MyClassicGarage.com grants users free membership and use of all resources including the MCG™ Knowledge Base. Performance specs, available colors, year-to-year differences, photos and more details are currently available on 26 makes from 9 different manufacturers -- Buick to Shelby.
"The internet is thought of as the place to get information, but a classic car database didn't exist. We did not take any shortcuts with the Knowledge Base. No other website offers a definitive classic car reference resource," said Dodge. "There's no silver bullet and we continue to do the hard work of adding makes and models to grow this portion of our site as a valuable resource for car enthusiasts."
