JANUARY 2017 NEWS
HAPPY NEW YEAR and WELCOME to the 2017 Edition of MotometerCentral.com!
Our continued goal is to increase awareness on the subject of early Twentieth Century automobile radiator-mounted engine temperature-indicating gauges and factually represent their history and origins despite the large headstart afforded those who have and those who continue to put forth incorrect, misinformation, or pure fiction about them.
Our website visitors and dedicated customer base recognizes the effort that we alone have undertaken as the preeminent historians, experts, market niche analysts, service providers and leading artifact collectors.
We have made it our mission and business to search far and wide to uncover the facts through exhaustive research and first hand collecting to ensure that what we publish, write and/or speak of -across all forums- is the truest and most accurate possible. So, that tradition continues with an all new featured article monthly series that examines the role of newspapers, automotive industry trade journals, advertisements, original manufacture documents and publications and the like (commonly referred to as ephemera) and how it can be used to help improve your knowledge on the subject, substantiate and supplement your collection.
2017 is MotometerCentral.com's third year in public operation on the Internet.
During the prior two years we have witnessed our website visits and hits explode. More amateur and professional automotive historians, general automobilia and motometer-specific collectors alike along with expert Pre-War auto restorers came to rely upon our knowledge, services and expertise to further their projects and interests.
We experienced a phenomenal rise in purchase orders for our patent pending exclusive motometer pedestals and item identification services. Our customers can attest that we exceeded their expectations with exceptional service fulfillment times generally under 48-hours, in many instances including shipping and delivery always with friendly and accommodating customer service.
Along with the website founder, Francis G. Clax, staff members traveled the country as he gave presentation speeches and lectures at the leading automotive industry history preservation conferences and events based upon selected topic papers. We met some very interesting, warm and sincere people who we maintained close contact with as the year progressed. We look forward to strengthening those relationships throughout this year
With each month we added new features and means to navigate around or through the website. The more advanced site navigational means increased the intrigue and excitement as images popped up, links conveniently transported you places and more informational became available. - all at your control! Many visitors really like the new approach.
As always please take your time to investigate and explore all of our website features (they are always changing and evolving).
WE HOPE THAT EACH OF YOU HAD A VERY HAPPY and HOLY CHRISTMAS!
And enjoyed a relaxing time with family and friends.
A TOAST TO YOU AND THE PROMISE OF A GREAT NEW YEAR!
