EDITORIAL: ON THE MOVE

Dear Readers,

we would love to use the first newsletter in 2017 to say thank you. Seriously, THANK YOU!
 
Because you’ve supported us on this journey that started like many great journeys before it: dreams and ideas, hatched by good times with friends sharing a few beers. When we created collectorscarworld, there wasn’t much out there that reflected our own ideas and understanding of a platform for fine historic automobiles. Therefore, we decided to create a brand we wanted for ourselves, one that should feel like a kind of cozy living-room for our readers and visitors.
 
We’ve bootstrapped this magazine with honest hustle and hard work and 2016 has been an amazing year for us: the immense growth that could be seen not only for collectorscarworld, but also for our re-launched classic lifestyle-magazine www.vintagestyle.eu and for our youngest child www.gloriousmotorcycles.com enables us to reach more than 500,000 people every month by now, making us highly attractive for your advertising needs. Furthermore, we have just founded the CLASSIC LIFESTYLE MEDIA GROUP GmbH, which will serve as an umbrella company for all our platforms. But of course, all pages will keep their individual character and teams. And there is even more to come in 2017, so stay tuned!
 
Again, thank you for your support and your feedback and please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us in case you want to contribute your cars, photos, videos, stories and ideas. Just drop us an email via info@collectorscarworld.com and we will get right back to you.
 
Hope to see you on the road in 2017.
 
Happy motoring
