    I’m excited that CarDomain will have a great new home in Source Interlink. It’s truly a win-win outcome! However, please change the headline, since WhitePages has nothing to do with CarDomain (other than the fact that I founded both companies). That said, it is an entertaining idea though that WhitePages would have been operating a community for car enthusiasts!
