Hi! First off my real name is Anthony Carbone and I am one of the co-founders of MadWhips.com and CarZi.com!
I always wanted to be a rocket scientist, however due to a lust for life, I fell a couple courses shy and ended up having to settle with a Systems & Computing Engineering degree from the University of Guelph.
I am currently headquartered in Toronto, Ontario and since MadWhips.com launch (November 1, 2007) this .com entrepreneurial adventure has given me the opportunity to attend and cover all the hottest auto events around the globe. MadWhips is home to a number of internet exclusive automotive photo galleries submitted from around the world by it's members and me. On March 19th, 2010 MadWhips.com successfully migrated to the Amazon Cloud!
The most memorable cars that I have photographed while photographing abroad are: Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT (Toronto, Canada), Nissan GT-R Spec V (Tokyo, Japan), Audi R8 LMS GT3 (Essen, Germany), Ferrari FXX Evoluzione (Montreal, Canada), Lamborghini Reventon during an Ash Sunset (Monterey, California, USA), Brett David's Famous Sharpie Lamborghini Gallardo (Palm Beach, Florida, USA), Knight XV (Las Vegas, USA) and Paris Hiltons Pink Bentley Continental GT (Las Vegas, USA).
My first automotive magazine debut in La Vita Lamborghini was attained by my coverage of the 2009 Supercar Weekend in Palm Beach Florida.
Thanks to MadWhips custom architecture (built by the founders of ProductWiki.com highlighted on Googles Blog for their sites strict and Google approved architecture - which also means ours) results in many of our photo galleries to be ranked within the top 3 search results for many top automotive search terms.
MadWhips photo albums are regularly cited and sourced for many articles use by top publications on the web such as AutoBlog.com, Jalopnik.com, TotalProSports.com and Wired.com!
I have met some awesome young rockstar photographers who I now call my friends: Josh McRae (username: Rush 109), Jason Thorgalsen (username: JT Photos), Stephan Bauer and Adam Dibacco (username: ItalianSpirit)
I recently retired my first car which had 350,000+ kms. Although old and weathered, my 1993 Honda Prelude SR-V was still as fun to drive and beat on as it was the first day I got it! I recently bought a 2003 Subaru WRX which currently (IMHO) is the best bang for your buck and I guarantee it will turn your life into a 365 day rally :P In July 2012 I picked up what I consider my first collector car, a Imola Red 2000 BMW Z3 M Coupe :)
