We feel bad for the other reader rides that had to go up against Chuck Goolsbee's well-known 1965 Jaguar E-Type. Not many cars can compete with the E-type in a popularity contest, and this week's poll proved just that. Chuck's Jag easily earned the honor of RR of the Week by capturing 44% of the vote (758 votes). Murden Mitten's 1968 BMW 1600 gave the Jag a decent fight, and any other week could have found itself atop the podium, but this week it earns second place honors with 30% of the vote (518 votes). The truly unique RX-7 rotary-powered 1978 MG Midget landed the third place spot and the final podium step with 12% of the vote (206 votes), while the two late-model vehicles, the 2003 BMW 325i and CNG-powered 2001 Ford Ka XR managed 9% (148 votes) and 6% (107 votes), respectively.



This was a very strong week of competitors, with a lot of vintage metal that stirred the nostalgia in all of us. We'll see if we can keep up the good picks for you this week, starting with the Final 500 2003 Oldsmobile Aurora featured today. Will your car be the RR of the Day tomorrow? Not if you haven't submitted it, yet. Follow the jump for more details on how to submit your ride.

How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'. Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide if possible and include as much information about it and yourself as possible. Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!
