Hard-to-Find Exotic Rides Define the duPont REGISTRY

duPont Registry helps high end car collectors buy and sell upscale vehicles.

PALM BEACH  GARDENS – Flip through the duPont REGISTRY and you’ll find pages of collectible cars like the 2006 Ford GT Heritage for $489,900 and exotics like the 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta for $699,000. Or a vintage 1969 Chevy Pro Touring Camaro for $55,000.

The glossy magazine is eye candy for car lovers everywhere and is packed with wild rides that are VERY hard-to-find.

Florida Fine Cars caught up with the duPont REGISTRY during a recent Cars & Coffee meet to find out why the magazine is such a draw for car enthusiasts and collectors from all walks of life.

The monthly magazine is a leading publication for the high-end marketplace with an appeal to “individuals whose net worth significantly exceeds what is traditionally considered upscale,” according to the duPont REGISTRY.

“It’s flying off the table,” said duPont REGISTRY account executive Dylan Orluck, as he handed out copies of the October 2017 edition with a McLaren 720S on the cover. “People are loving it. A lot of people recognize us from our social media. We have 6.5 million followers on Facebook and nearly 700,000 followers on Instagram.”

duPont REGISTRY Appeals to Both Serious Collectors and Dreamers

Yes, the cars that are advertised in the magazine appeal to the rich and famous. But not everyone who picks up the magazine has the money to buy. Dreaming is OK, too.

“We have a lot of aspirational readers who obviously can’t afford the million dollar cars but can maybe afford the $50,000 car,” Orluck said. “Plus, even if you can’t afford any of the cars they are fun to look at.”

The magazine offers a unique marketplace for high-end car owners to buy and sell their vehicles to others in similar financial circles. Cars for sale in the magazine range in price from $50,000 to $1 million, Orluck said. The duPont REGISTRY is typically distributed at private airlines, First Class lounges, or among major sports teams.

The October 2017 edition of the duPont REGISTRY features a McLaren 720S on the cover.

“There are a lot of people here who are trying to sell their cars or advertise their businesses,” Orluck noted. “This is the perfect venue for this with all the exotic and high end vehicles that are coming through.

No surprise that a line of red, white and blue Lamborghinis was parked next  to the duPont REGISTRY tent.

One of them was Brad of Boca Raton, who owns a red 1986 Ferrari 328 and a black 2007 Ferrari F430 which he is trying to sell. He figured the duPont REGISTRY would be read by car lovers who might actually buy one of his Ferraris.

“It’s got some good pictures and it’s well-respected,” he said of the duPont REGISTRY. “And sometimes someone is just in the mood for a (new) toy.”

Fury Road Riding Club co-owner Adrienne Mazzone talks about the Hurricane Irma raffle at Cars & Coffee while Cesar Pentzke videotapes for Florida Fine Cars.

PALM BEACH GARDENS – When a pack of flashy bikers determined to help the less fortunate rumbled into the September Cars & Coffee meetup, they hoped their presence would drum up attention for a Hurricane Irma fundraiser.

It did. The rows of rumbling bikes stood out nicely amid hundreds of cool cars. And the hurricane raffle, organized by the Exotic Car Society, raised nearly $1,000.FuryRoad (1)

Irma blew through South Florida in late September destroying homes, knocking out power and taking lives.FFC Logo New Car

Fury Road co-owner and media relations director Adrienne Mazzone said it’s all about helping those in need.

“We try to bring awareness and extra support to any good cause,” said Mazzone, who’s also president of TransMedia Group in Boca Raton. Mazzone rides a 2016 Indian Scout and says the bike club always draws attention everywhere it goes. Harnessing that buzz for good causes is easy because people are fascinated by motorcycles, she noted.

“It’s the throttle and the excitement of the loudness of the bike. The loud pipes rolling in. It’s always fun and excitement,” Mazzone said. Fury Road has about 60 independent riders and includes school teachers, architects, and an array of others. The group holds a weekly bike night every Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings in Deerfield Beach. Find out more about Fury Road Riding Club at www.furyroadrc.com.

 

Monetary Contributions Benefit Storm Victims Through DirectRelief.com

Crystal Anne, who owns MyAutoAddiction.com, collected donations at the fundraising tent for storm victims. The money will be distributed to those in need through DirectRelief.com.IMG_4501

“One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the actual cause,” said Crystal Anne, a member of the Exotic Car Society.

Her involvement has been personal. Crystal Anne traveled to Texas to help with disaster relief after Hurricane Harvey struck and spent time working in a Houston distribution warehouse unloading supplies for people in need

Afterwards, she went to Beaumont where she helped deliver disaster supplies by boat in the flood zones. The experience touched her heart.

 “People are very generous. They have really come together. It was really an amazing, amazing experience,” she said. That’s why she jumped at the chance to help out again when the Exotic Car Society got involved in fundraising for storm victims.

Florida Fine Cars Meets the “AutoGeek” at Cars & Coffee Palm Beach

MikePhillipsPortrait

Mike Phillips, host of the Autogeek’s detailing how-to videos, discussed polishing techniques with Florida Fine Cars.

NORTH PALM BEACH – Auto detailing guru Mike Phillips loves to talk about shiny cars.

“I have made a career out of showing people how to remove swirls,” chuckled Phillips, one of the foremost experts on auto detailing and paint restoration. “For 30 years I’ve been teaching people how to polish paint.”

Florida Fine Cars caught up with the Stuart resident at Cars & Coffee Palm Beach, where the YouTube sensation and host of Autogeek’s detailing how-to videos fielded questions about detailing, demonstrated polishing techniques and posed for pictures with fans.FFC Logo New Car

Autogeek’s detailing tip segments have been featured on the My Classic Car TV show for five years. In recent years, Phillips has also been featured in tip segments on the TV shows Two Guys Garage with Willie B. and Kevin Byrd, Two Guys Garage with Bryan Fuller, Truck U with Bruno Massel and Matt Steele, and Motorhead Garage with Sam and Dave.

Phillips also hosted Autogeek’s What’s In The Garage? TV show which saw a successful two-season run on the FOX Sports Network.

“I take what I know and show people how to do something,” Phillips explained. “A lot of people think polishing paint starts with a buffer. It really starts with your brain.”

Detailing a car properly can be more challenging than it looks and learning how to get it right can take a little time, he explained. Car enthusiasts get a new toy and then realize they don’t know how to keep it looking sharp.

“I got this now. What do I do?” It’s a scenario that commonly plays out among new car owners everywhere, he noted.

What’s more, modern paints are more difficult to work by hand because they have changed since the 1980s and some car owners resist using rotary polishing tools because they don’t understand them, Phillips said.

They envision disaster when they think of using a rotary polishing tool.

“They think all tools are dangerous but a lot of the new tools are very safe,” he explained.

To prove it, he demonstrated the safety of a Griot’s Garage 6” random orbital by running it across his hand and then the hand of a spectator. The whirring polisher did little more than tickle, as a fan watched admiringly.

“He’s the expert,” the man gushed. “He is the authority when it comes to making sure the finish of a car is perfect!”
