POLL: RR of the Year
UPDATE: We've added one vehicle we neglected to put in the poll, and decided since the voting just began this morning that it would only be right to restart the poll with all the RR of the Week winners included. Vote again, whether you have or haven't done it before.
We've been awash with COTY awards for the better part of a month and, to be honest, we just don't care. Few of us around the Autoblog water cooler plan on purchasing a brand new whip in the future, but visions of late night drives and track days in our ride dance in our minds. We imagine that many of you are just like us and have a considerable amount of pride in what you drive. That idea -- that cars that haven't rolled off the assembly line within the last year deserve some attention in a world obsessed with The New -- is exactly why we've asked you to submit your vehicles to our Flickr pool for proper recognition.
Since we started our Reader Ride of the Day a few months back, it's turned into one of our favorite posts to write up. Being able to pick through the nearly 400 vehicles submitted and to give one its time in the spotlight is, to say the least, a highlight of our day.
Of the close to 60 vehicles we've featured each week, you've voted on your favorite and we've decided to give you the chance to crown one vehicle Autoblog's Reader Ride of the Year. After the jump, you'll find all 14 contenders and you can vote for your favorite in the poll below. Good luck to all the entrants and be sure to submit your own ride so we can kick off the New Year right.
POLLING CLOSED AT 9 PM, DECEMBER 31st.

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!
