At 1:30 AM EST this morning, we closed voting on the closest Reader Ride of the Week poll we've ever seen. During the battle over the weekend, the margin between Adam's 1972 Austin Mini and Oli's Audi S4 was as little as one vote. As the polling continued, jockeying for the top slot became even more heated, until mid-Sunday, when the S4 gained a bit more momentum, finally propelling the autocross attack machine to victory with a scant 38 addtional votes.



We like to end things on a high note, so we'll be taking a brief hiatus from our RR of the Day feature as we regroup, mull over some proposed formatting changes and increase our cache of potential entrants. In the meantime, we'd encourage you to submit your own ride to our Flickr pool by following the directions after the jump, making sure to provide us with enough details to make an interesting post out of your whip.

But fear not, the RR of the Day will return! Show your support by submitting your ride and if you'd like to propose an idea or two, click on through to submit a comment.

How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. 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 you can. 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!

      A pair of broken VWs and a gm minibus - not much competition for the top two!

      Congrats S4 - always nice to see a competition car in the lineup.

      Idea for RR - a theme week for project cars. And also consider re-using prior theme weeks at least once a year if more cars have been submitted in a category.

      How about a NCAA March Madness style single elimination tournament? Pair the competitors off, the winners advance to the next round, only one car takes the championship.

      What about Motorcycles as a theme?
