Ever since Ammar Kubba’s company divested Agreed.com, Aftermarket.com, and Trafficz, I wondered what Ammar would have planned for his next venture. In asking friends and family for feedback on the finalists for a logo design contest, Ammar shared his next business idea, AutoBio.
Although AutoBio is completely unrelated to the business of domain investing and domain names, it is an online venture. Here’s how Ammar described the business, although he mentioned that the concept is still being refined:
“AutoBio is a social network (think Facebook), informational resource (think Wikipedia, Zillow, car forums), and discovery app (think Pinterest) for car enthusiasts. AutoBio will have the world’s largest index of vehicles, i.e., every year, make, and model of every car ever built. AutoBio’s mission is: 1) to spread the love of cars, and 2) to improve the experience of buying, owning, and selling cars. AutoBio’s slogan is ‘for the love of cars’.”
Judging by a Historical Whois record from DomainTools, it looks like Ammar acquired the domain name earlier this month from Frank Schilling’s Name Administration. The .net and .org domain names are parked, just as AutoBio.com was parked prior to the acquistion.
As I mentioned earlier, Ammar is currently running a logo design contest that is in its final stages. Over 400 logo design entries were submitted, and Ammar asked for feedback on 8 logo design finalists. I am sure he would appreciate your feedback and vote.
It will be interesting to follow along with Ammar as he begins his next venture and I hope he hits it big again.
