Petrol-heads and girl racers, get ready for a pit stop online and take a look at the Car Show organised by Eagle One, the company that makes products to buff and shine your motor.
Much as we love a tasty set of wheels here on The Next Web, we’re not veering off topic for the sake of a shining set of rims. Eagle One’s Car Show is powered by Facebook, which means it taps into a huge audience for user generated content.
Participants can log into the Car Show with their Facebook account, add photos, specs and video of their pride and joy and see it rated on the site as others take a look around their vehicle.
If you prefer home-grown car rallies to the expensive, bonnet-bunny and dealership circuses, you’re probably going to enjoy competing or taking a look around the cars that others love to share.
You may wish to add top quality images of your supercar, fresh from the valet to compete, but for us mere-mortals there is room to gain top ratings too as there is a division for ‘dirtiest ride’. Users can collect trophies for other points of interest including, top wheels, top trim and top glass.
Part of the joy of owning a beautiful car is having others appreciate it. So if there’s diesel in your veins and you have the need for speed (within the parameters of the laws of the road of course) then you might find that this car show is a neat way to spend time while your motor is in the shop.
Check out the video for more details about how it all works:
