An Interesting Vehicle Delivered Daily To Your Inbox

an interesting vehicle delivered daily to your inbox
TTAC reader Michael Banovsky has launched a new service that offers a novel promise: an interesting vehicle delivered daily to your inbox. Banovsky’s Car of the Day reaches deep into the annals of the automotive world, in the pursuit of profiling the obscure: everything from the Anibal Podadera to the Zimmer Quicksilver and all points in between. My own favorite is the Toyota Origin: a limited-edition, Lexus IS-based retro-looking oddity that had suicide doors and cost $70,000.

      @IHateCars Thanks! And yes, that was the general idea. Though I don't have ads in it so it's sort of like an insider-y newsletter. Guys…shhhh…guys… …here's a Cony Guppy.

    http://www.banovsky.com/archive/ will get you there without the emails, for those who prefer the blog format.

      Yes, yes it will. If you've been reading from the start you're aware that I used to include the link with every email; I've since changed the # to link to /index/, a little overwhelming at first but very fast to search. One of the reasons I don't link directly to the Archive (blog) is that it doesn't increase sign-ups. Since sign-ups (and the newsletter itself) is the most novel thing I'm doing, I decided to make such links easily available to subscribers but more difficult to reach for those who don't know how to get there. With a huge amount of experience online building sites like autofocus.ca, one of the most surprising revelations was that sharing (and asking people to share) doesn't really have an effect at this scale. The "Forward" links at the bottom of the emails will be gone tomorrow, solely because nobody ever really clicked on them… It's constant evolution and I want to create the best possible experience for readers—if they're not clicking or not using something, it goes away. Seems simple, but… Best, M!

    Only 1 year till that Origin is clear of Canadian import restrictions. I wonder if it's actually possible to find any of the 1000 in Japan anymore -- sweet car.

      The grille of the Origin looks straight off a '55 Chrysler Windsor.

    I'm all for learning about weird stuff like the Toyota Origin and Sbarro (guess it's not just mall pizza) Windhound, so I signed up.
