Possible to add vehicle year range?

Post by Dave A » Sun Sep 11, 2011 5:00 am

In the RECENTLY SHUTDOWN 8-( Jaxed online service there was the option of searching for older vehicles by 10-year ranges, ie. 1940's vehicles of all types. Jaxed had become the predominate search for collector cars. I believe the search had categories for 1910's through 1970's. This was quite manageable because there might be only 5-10 1940's vehicles for sale in a state at a time Could this be added to Search Tempest?

Also there were search options of American, Asian, or European cars although I didn't find that particularly valuable when looking at older vehicles.

We have another site, http://www.AutoTempest.com, which is built specifically to search for cars at craigslist and many other sites (autotrader, cars.com, ebay, etc.) It offers searching by range of years, plus many more features. Similarly to SearchTempest, it gives you the results for each site directly, rather than scraping and storing them, so you get the most up to date results, and the site can't be shut down for copyright infringement as others have in the past. (Jaxed being the most recent example.)

Also, AutoTempest is getting a major revamp very soon! Check out screenshots (well, one screenshot so far :) ) at http://www.tempestblog.com.
