ATLANTA, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- AutoTrader Classics, the leading classifieds destination for buyers and sellers of classic cars and trucks, will begin providing exclusive online classifieds listings to Source Interlink, the top publisher of magazines dedicated to automotive enthusiasts. This agreement covers all 22 Source Interlink Media enthusiast sites, including those for such magazines as Hot Rod and Car Craft, as well as Mopar Muscle, Mustang Monthly and SuperChevy, publications that reach 2.7 million readers every month.
In addition, AutoTrader Classics will also feature links on its site that allow readers an easy way to sign up for a subscription to any of Source Interlink's print publications.
As a part of the agreement, all marketplace pages within the AutoTrader Classics web site will be co-branded with the appropriate Source Interlink publication. There will also be editorial links from the top 100 most-searched vehicles to relevant online articles from Source Interlink publications.
"This partnership brings together two of the most well-respected names in the classic car sector," said Rob Huting, General Manager, AutoTrader Classics.
