Another RR of the Week is in the books, and frankly we're surprised by this week's results. The bone stock Lotus Elise managed to capture first place with 705 votes (42%) ahead of the vehicle we believed might dominate the polls, Billy the Kid's 1967 Mustang. Many were unsure about the status of the Kid's 'Stang since he technically no longer owned it. Suffice it to say, if you have a sentimental tear-jerker of a story to go along with an outstanding ride you once owned, we'll consider it like we did with Billy and his father's restored Mustang. Still, the 'Stang barely defended a second place with 430 votes (26%) against the Chrysler Conquest TSI's threat to overtake it all weekend. Alas, the Conquest was unable to contest in the end, finishing with 409 votes (25%) and a third place finish. Rounding out the list was the most controversial car of the week, the nicely tuned Nissan Maxima that managed to capture 124 votes (7%) of the vote.



We're trying to tinker with the format of our RR of the Day to make it more entertaining and the polls a little less predictable. Based on your feedback, some would like to see themed weeks where we feature like vehicles from the same era and pit them against one another in the polls over the weekend. We think that's a great idea, but we need more reader ride submissions to our Flickr group to do it. So we're calling on everyone to submit his or her ride. Once we get enough of a certain type of vehicle (i.e. Jeeps, Mustangs, Audis or whatever), we'll be better able to orchestrate RR of the Week polls that aren't always won by the most classic or expensive car, because that was never our intention in the first place. We'll have to check the Flickr pool, but perhaps we can make this week all EVOs (might need to stretch it to include the WRX, too). Follow the jump for instructions on how to submit your vehicle, it's easy!

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!
