It's a rare week that goes by that we don't get at least one comment asking where the Reader Ride of the Day has gone. Well, we're pleased to announce that the RR hiatus has ended and in the next two weeks we'll be accumulating more reader-owned vehicles to showcase on a regular basis. We're still mulling over whether or not we want to keep the same format as before, featuring one vehicle per day and then allowing you to vote for your favorite at the end of the week, or making it a weekly feature, with a vote at the end of the month. Sound off in comments about what you'd prefer and we'll take your thoughts into consideration.

We've got a new Flickr pool set up, ingeniously titled "Autoblog Reader Rides," and we'd ask you to begin submitting your rides as soon as you've got three photos and a brief (or detailed) description of your vehicle. Directions are posted after the jump that outline how to submit, what we need and what our new Flickr address is. Bring your best and brightest, or your downtrodden and rusted -- we don't care -- we just want to see what you're rollin'.

How to submit to RR of the Day:

Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Join the group called "Autoblog Reader Rides." Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide 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!


I'm reporting this comment as:

Reported comments and users are reviewed by Autoblog staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week to determine whether they violate Community Guideline. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination.

      Couple times a week is good and every day is ideal. However, I fear that the posting of them everyday will quickly deplete the total number of RR submissions available and will result in an early termination. I'd like to see this thing continue for a while and if that means 2-3 a week versus 5+ then that's fine with me.

        I wholeheartedly agree. Didn't the RR disappear because there wasn't enough rides to post in the first place? They should set it up where this feature will last the longest.

        That's why I suggest Autoblog run a same model/generation every week. Gives a better chance for those AB readers with similar rides to get their cars in which makes a daily edition more feasible. For example, gives AB readers the chance to pick the best Miata out of a group of Miatas; instead of leaving it to the Editors to pick one out.

        We're on the same wavelength. Doing a RR of the Day on like Mon., Wed., and Fri. would be ideal.

        Martin - The vast majority of the rides in our old Flickr pool had little to no information about them, so they were hard to write up. We didn't care what the photos were like or what kind of vehicle it was, so if you're whip wasn't picked, submit it again, and it'll certainly be in the running.

        There were a lot of rides in the Flickr pool that they didn't pick (like mine, lol) so I don't think that it really stopped because they didn't have enough pictures.

      I like the idea of doing the RR daily, but the voting could be once-a-month. If it ran for a couple days it could give more people a chance to vote.

      I personally vote for either MWF, or daily if possible, with a vote at the end of the week (and month) as previously suggested.

      Once a day, all the way!

      I prefer the daily edition.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Aw yeah....I'm going to submit this time fo' sho'!!!
      • 7 Years Ago
      Yeah!

      With as few cars that have been entered up to now, I'd suggest a weekly competition, with a monthly vote for the 4 winners.

      Vote for Shnog!
