What is VAST? It is a brand new free search service that extracts classified ads from across the web and displays them in an easy to manage format. So, what does this mean for readers of The Garage? Well, their current tagline is “tracking over 4.8 million cars for sale across 13554 sites”. That is a lot of cars for sale. I did a pretty generic search “race car” and it brought back over 15,000 cars for sale. Of course the bulk of them were British Racing Green, but it’s still relevant. I entered “sprite” as a keyword and got 218 listings, many of those were sprites or midgets.
I thought this was worth sharing, and we make integrate it into the next version of The Garage, which is going to launch soon.
