Forbes Autos Shutting Down

forbes autos shutting down

I’m not the only online automotive writer that got the pink slip this month. Forbes Autos has been shut down. Not to speak ill of the dead, but the site was mostly “Buyers Guide” fluff with the occasional top ten list. With manufacturers pulling their advertising dollars (likely to be spent on perks for the executives), sites like Forbes are taking a major league revenue hit. As such, their scribes are welcome to join me in the land of unemployment.

    Damn, I guess I'll have to find my "Top 10 Hatchbacks for Lefthanded Immigrant Bagpipe Technicians" content elsewhere.

    Great! No more stupid "Top 10 cars for ..." lists.

    Samir, as a left-handed immigrant bagpipe technician, I am offended! We are currently lobbying for a bailout of the bagpipe industry and we DON'T need your negativism.

    There's another best list from Forbes on Yahoo today. Apparently the Ford Festiva is coming out soon.
