duPont REGISTRY February 2016duPont REGISTRY GEAR
Welcome to another value packed issue of the duPont REGISTRYTM. Enclosed are literally, hundreds of cars for sale at your finger tips. To review all your options, you do not need a battery, an internet connection or electricity (as long as the sun is up!) Print media (especially magazines) continue to hold the dominant lead in trust and comfort when compared to other forms of media. So enjoy!
We have two Publisher’s Choice listings this month. Each is a rare and desirable “collectible” that is sure to appeal to the exotic car enthusiast. The staff here at the duPont REGISTRYTM works diligently to find these offerings for your imagination, or your garage. Take a look at both here and on the web at www.dupontregistry.com.
The first Publisher’s Choice is a real, classic, exotic, rare and red Ferrari 288 GTO. In the mad rush to see/acquire a truly great Ferrari, the 288 GTO is often overlooked and at the same time hard to find. This example, brought to you by the new McLaren Boston (call 866-984-8511) is, of course, finished in classic Rosso Corsa over Nero interior. The mostly original “classiche” certified is ready to go (but most likely not in the snow!)
Publisher’s Choice #2 is truly valuable to the racing enthusiast. The #22 Martini Racing Porsche 918 Spyder is presented in the Martini Racing Livery and comes with the Weissach Package that enhances performance and handling. Porsche Center Langley presents this rare and lightning-fast 918 and to learn more contact Eric Bjorndal at 604-530-8911. Remember, only 918 Porsche 918’s were built. Low mileage, 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and 887 horsepower.
If neither of these offerings appeal to you, there are many other options in this issue. There are even more on our website at www.dupontregistry.com and many are talked about on our Facebook, Instagram, and AUTOFLUENCE blog. These electronic resources allow you to stay up to date with the rapidly growing auto-enthusiast marketplace. Facebook followers now number of 5.7 million, traffic on our AUTOFLUENCE blog is getting very close to 1 million views per month, and there are over 512,000 Instagram followers. This is a big, BIG marketplace that will grow even bigger in 2016.
Events have always held an important part in any marketing plan in the automotive marketplace. This is especially true in the world of classic, luxury and exotic automobiles. The duPont REGISTRYTM will be in attendance again as a sponsor of the fabulous all-inclusive auction-mania known as Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale (www.barrett-jackson.com). The fun starts on January 23 at 8:00 am with preview day. Sunday, January 24th is the beginning of the automobilia auctions. Monday, January 25th is the Opening Night Gala (bidders, consignors, invited guests only). Tuesday, January 26th through Sunday, January 31st all kinds of automobiles will cross the block. Friday and Saturday are the big days with special “salon selection” vehicles, charity vehicles and even more “non-reserve” offerings. Remember, this is 45 YEARS for Barrett-Jackson - a real milestone in the business and one that makes us even more proud to be a sponsor. Look for us in the sponsor’s hall before, after or during the auction, the Barrett-Jackson Bull Riding Challenge, the Ford & GM Ride and Drives and Dodge Thrill Rides. See you there!
