CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 100,000 classic car collectors and enthusiasts claimed MyClassicGarage.com virtual garages in the past nine months, activating free membership and entry into a 1970 Hemicuda giveaway in December 2013. In 2012, MCG gave away a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am.
"Let's face it, giving away a car helps, but I read the feedback and our users are engaged," said Jim Dodge, MyClassicGarage.com Marketing Director. "We didn't start off with a goal in mind of reaching 100,000 users in less than a year. User adoption was something we discussed, but we decided early on to ruthlessly focus on what would serve enthusiasts and collectors and let the chips fall where they may. That philosophy has served us well."
Website users engage the MCG Expert Panel and Knowledge Base to learn about cars. They safely store documents, receipts and service records, and schedule maintenance dates and car show visits on the interactive calendar. Thousands of members shop for cars and sell cars 24 hours a day from the privacy of their home. "The growth has been rewarding, but being behind the scenes, I can see the best is yet to come. The version of MyClassicGarage.com people see now is one tenth of what it will soon be."
