We’re really excited to share a little news, about, well, the news. Today we’re announcing a partnership with our friends at The Washington Post. Select High Gear Media stories will be syndicated to their site, added to the Business and Cars sections and occasionally appear in print versions of The Post.
This is great for our sites The Car Connection, Motor Authority and Green Car Reports — each of which will be contributing. It goes without saying that The Washington Post represents journalistic excellence. Syndicating some of the best work from our sites speaks to the quality of content our hard working team creates — automotive content that is credible and engaging. We’re the first automotive content company to work with The Post like this.
Second, High Gear Media articles appearing in The Post puts our content in front of potentially millions of more readers. The Post, in turn, gains access to our breaking news, first drives and more. Here are a couple of examples of this syndication in action.
Given that automotive news is also often business news, we’re especially proud to join The Post’s business news section, which features The Post‘s original reporting and columns. We’re joining other great outside content sources like Bloomberg, VentureBeat, and The Verge.
Stay tuned, we’re just getting warmed up.

In the end, you made it really difficult for us!
We received a slew of amazing submissions in the final days of our contest to tell us about your favorite auto show moment and win a trip to the New York International Auto Show (sponsored by High Gear Media, Hyundai, and the New York International Auto Show). The editorial brain trust put its collective (and collectively fierce) mind to the task of selecting a winner, and…
We are thrilled to announce that Brian Parker is our winner! Check out Brian’s favorite auto show moment: My Memorable Auto Show Moment: Tokyo 1991
Here is a snippet:
As we entered the North Hall, I quickly discovered that this was a Motor Show unlike any other that I had been to in the United States. Where your typical show in the U.S. was more or less a huge, temporary, multi-brand showroom where you could wander at random, climbing in and out of cars, picking up brochures off a rack and viewing the occasional prototype or new model on a turntable – the Tokyo show seemed more like a museum where one would walk along a pathway past the exhibits, perhaps listen to a presentation if you understood Japanese or pick up brochures handed to you from behind a desk by a smiling young lady, maybe peer into the windows of a car on the floor that’s been locked up or gaze at a mockup of a transmission that had been laid open for viewing or even watch as the bodywork of a production car was peeled open like a grape to reveal its interior – then move along to the next exhibit along the pathway.
Please feel free to drop by Brian’s winning article to let him know what you think and to discuss your favorite auto show moment as well. And in the meantime Brian is getting ready to head to New York City to meet up with the High Gear Media team to help cover the New York International Auto Show!
Look out for a new contest announcement soon, and in the meantime, we are always on on the lookout for skilled writers – and it’s easy to get started in writing about cars with High Gear Media using our open blogging platform.
