When it comes to time-suck websites for gear heads, there are none finer than Bring A Trailer, where enthusiasts can browse for cars that are out of the mainstream (in some cases, far out of the mainstream) or reminisce about a the joys and sorrows of a particular obscure model. You won’t find a 2010 Mustang GT on the site, but you may very well find a one-of-a-kind four-wheel-drive Mustang prototype. If your tastes run to vintage European rides, you may even want to consider bookmarking Bring A Trailer as your home page.
Autoblog uncovered this Petrolicious video, which tells the story of how Randy Nonnenberg and Gentry Underwood founded the site, which serves as both a shopping mall and meeting place for enthusiasts of all types. If you’ve never visited the site, be forewarned: there is no such thing as a “quick visit” to Bring A Trailer.
As for those of us who visit the site on a regular basis, it’s only a matter of time before the right car comes up. We suppose it’s like playing the slots in Vegas; you can pull the handle a thousand times and get nothing, but pull it the right time and you hit a jackpot. Our jackpot is likely to come in the form of a vintage Porsche 911, unearthed by the guys at Bring A Trailer.
