Automobiles Specials Catalog
We publish a monthly catalog of specials from area franchised auto dealerships for sales and service listed by brand. This catalog is emailed directly to 50,000 people in the Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts area who have shown some interest in automobiles, whether it be a purchase, repair, insurance etc.
Included in the catalog are our comprehensive directories for area auto body shops, insurance companies, and (starting in spring 2021) a complete listing of all area franchised auto dealerships by brand, with direct links to specials and inventory for each brand.
AutomobilesRIMA Auto Show
Our award-winning auto show is scheduled to be back on the air this spring after a 12 month Covid hiatus. We’ll be bringing you reviews and information on the 2021 models, along with interviews with the most important people in the Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts automobile industry. (interviews may be done via Zoom for the first few months). We’re expanding our reach, and now covering the automotive landscape from Rhode Island and Bristol County, all the way up to Boston and out to Cape Cod.
Our auto show is the highest rated local auto show for the area for 6 years in a row. If there’s a car you want us to do a presentation on, or a dealer you want us to interview, just email us here.
Our podcast will be starting in spring of 2021 and will allow us to do longer format interviews and discussions with dealers and General Managers in Rhode Island and Southeastern Mass. We’ll be filming the podcast also so you can watch the video or just listen on your way to work or however you listen to podcasts. We’ll discuss new vehicles coming out this year and in the near future, the state of the industry, trends in the industry, notable newcomers and talk about individual dealerships.
