We've featured the cars of Bring a Trailer, and not so long ago Jay Leno's Garage added a car found on the classics-focused site. Four-wheeled filmmakers Petrolicious have gone behind the web page with a seven-minute piece on the co-founders of BringATrailer.com, Randy Nonnenberg and Gentry Underwood.

Both gentlemen get screen time, but it's Nonnenberg that tells the tale of how his early interest in vintage machinery turned into him becoming The Oracle among his friends when they wanted to buy. Eventually, Underwood's friend spoke up to say 'People want to read about what you know,' and a web site – one of the finest time wasters in all the cyber world, we might add – was born.

You can hear how it all began in the video below.

      Great site for the classics with numerous knowledgeable commentators. It's getting a little too popular.

        It is getting popular, very popular. And unfortunately it's beginning to become populated by the equivalent of, what's the term, 'teenage fanboys'. I go there since I own several vintages machines and appreciate them. These detractors on the site are content to echo old urban legends and here say, not adding anything constructive to the conversation.

      Literally the best auto site on the internet, bar none.

      BaT is great because of the heavily-moderated comments. The same cannot be said about AutoBlog.
