• Dec 31, 2009
About this time every year, news outlets like ours wax nostalgic over the past year, compiling the highlights, lowlights, bloopers, and everything in between that happened in the last 365 days. Notes are compared, calendars dates are circled, lists are conjured. Understandably, other than leaving you with 100 of our greatest automotive photographs this year, we'd largely prefer to forget this year in automotive history altogether, soaked as it is with red ink and spattered with the blood of fallen brands.

So instead of rehashing the past, we'd like to hear what your automotive-themed New Year's resolutions are for 2010. Do you plan on buying a new car? Finally taking up autocrossing? Mastering the art of the Scandanavian Flick? Take the fam on a road trip that follows the route in National Lampoon's Vacation? Perhaps you have more modest goals – learning how change out your spark plugs, say, or finishing that Testors model kit gathering dust on that shelf in the basement. Maybe it's just scraping out that crud that has mysteriously congealed in your cupholders or finally beating your nephew at Mario Kart. No matter how big or how small, we want to hear about your automotive plans for 2010. Drop us a line or two in Comments... and have a safe and happy New Year's!

      AB's resolution should be to fix this blasted commenting system.

        An edit button for 2010.

        -1.

        Sorry, I just wanted to see how many pissed of AB readers are there.

      1. Get more power out of my 8G Galant VR4. Its only got 280bhp at the moment :(
      2. Attend atleast one trackday
      3. Attend another supercar charity day. I went to one last year and managed to ride shotgun in a 911 gt3rs, a Ferrari 550m, a Ferrari 348 and my dream car a Ferrari F40
      4. Have a mini euro roadtrip, despite the high price of shell v-power
      5. Perform a full paint correction on my car and continue to keep her looking clean and shiny!

      Supercharging my V8 would be a nice way to cap off all the suspension upgrades I'm doing.
      • 5 Years Ago
      To enter AND complete at least one (but 4 would be better) 24 Hours of LeMons event.
      • 5 Years Ago
      If I pay off my car this year, then I'd keep it until it falls apart (its a Mazda, so hopefully it'll hold up well)
      • 5 Years Ago
      Finally buy the car I've always wanted, a Mazda Miata! Practicality be damned!!

      For AB to fix the gallery system so that you don't have to click "back" 30 times to get back to the post when you've only clicked on two photos.

      For me: exhuast manifold for the Prizm, evaporator core for the Intrepid.

        There's a button next to the image size options that sends you back to the post, just by the way. Though autoblog could use an update to the comment system, as many other readers have said.

      To get me and my Mini on the Nordschleif before i get out of the military in August and leave Europe.

      I'm intending on getting a motorcycle license and saving what pennies don't go toward Ramen for a bike. Got to do something to feel manly while attending a liberal arts university.

      Put a HUD in my car.
      Get a datalogger.

      Find the exactly perfect shift timings and points.

      Set a track record on my school's running track... in my car.

      Rebadge my car for kicks.
      I want a Jaguar hood ornament. M badges on the side. And an S-class AMG badge on the rear. I'll keep my (real) Hyundai badges on the grille and the trunk. Heh.
      Then I want to mature enough to realize that this is an incredibly bad idea.

      To go a full year without having to spend any more money on the girlfriend's car or her son's truck.

      To attend the IRL race at Barber Motorsports Park and go back to Road Atlanta for the Petite LeMans.
