RR of the Day

    Reader Ride: 2002 MINI Cooper S

    Time for total honesty: if we were to pick up a MINI tomorrow, this is the one we'd have. The combination of dark silver and a black roof is understated enough to be overlooked, but menacing in a way that makes us itch for the twisties. It tells anyone in The Know that you've got taste, and the ...

    Reader Ride: 2004 Subaru WRX

    Although modded WRXs are a dime a dozen throughout the States, surprisingly few have made it into our Flickr pool – that's just not right. It's one of the most competent platforms going for enthusiasts, and after last year's Subie v. Evo posts, we though it was high time to highlight another ...

    Reader Ride: 1999 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport

    Our weeklong hiatus of Reader Rides has ended, giving our Flickr pool a bit more time to amass cars and, more importantly, descriptions. Today's RR comes courtesy of Autoblog reader Neil and his 1999 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport.Although driven daily, Neil hits up his local autocross course on a ...

    Reader Ride: 1992 Subaru SVX

    It was the early 1990s when Subaru went into the Porsche business. It wasn't nearly the pseudo-Porsche the Nissan NX 2000 was, but it could have been the result of a tryst between a 944 and an erstwhile 911. The SVX looked like a space capsule, and it teamed the brand's famed (even then) AWD ...

    Reader Ride: 2007 Alfa Romeo Spider

    Whoa. Monday came and went entirely too fast, and in our haste to get all the news that's fit to post up for your adoring eyes, we spaced on our Reader Ride feature. That's okay though, since this Alfa was worth the wait.Paul Blathwayt was kind enough to share a few shots of his brand-spankin' new ...

    Reader Ride: 1992 Infiniti G20

    Our obsession of all things automotive extends far beyond the latest and greatest that comprises the majority of what you read. That's one of the reasons we've brought back the Reader Ride, so we can showcase what the majority of us roll on a daily basis. Today's ride is exactly the kind of thing ...

    Reader Ride: 1972 Datsun 240Z

    It's with the greatest pleasure and sincerest honor that we're able to kick-off the return of the Reader Ride with this 1972 Datsun 240Z. Aside from being one of the most handsome vehicles to ever leave Tokyo and its game-changing affect on the perception of Japanese vehicles, this 240Z has a ...

    Reader Ride returns next week

    We're a mere five days away from relaunching our Reader Ride feature, and by the looks of it so far, we're off to a cracking start. We've amassed over 30 new members in our Flickr pool, with many accompanying their pics with a detailed explanation of where the car is from, its history and what mods ...

    Autoblog Podcast #71

    We're shooting from the hip this week for Podcast #71. Rather than prepare, we're going with gut reactions. Starting it off, we mull over the loss of the USGP from Indianapolis, and postulate on where else F1 may pop up in the US. An F1 race on the Vegas strip would be the bomb. Staying with ...

    Return of the Reader Ride

    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 ...

    RR of the Week - Poll Results

    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 ...

    POLL: RR of the Week

    How could we best describe this week's selection of Reader's Rides? Diverse? Too vague. Erratic? Too negative. How about a motley hodgepodge of four-wheeled absurdity? Sure. We'll run with that.Absurd doesn't even begin to describe the idea of piling several of your soon-to-be closest friends into ...

    RR of the Day: 2000 Audi S4

    It's hard not to get all hot and bothered when we see an S4 doing the three-wheeled tango around an autocross course. However, this particular S4 is putting down 387 HP and 445 lb-ft of torque through all four wheels. In addition to such prodigious power figures, the 2.7L twin-turbo'd Audi has been ...

    RR of the Day: 1992 VW Passat Syncro

    Flickr user mtl_raoul's G60-powered '92 Passat GL Syncro is one of those things that grabbed our attention when we saw it floating around in the pool. For one, the grille-free B3 Passats are still cool-looking today. Add the fact that the all-wheel drive Syncro variant was not offered in the United ...

    RR of the Day: 1969 VW Beetle

    This is a tale of a man and his first love, which for a young man named Matt, and many of the rest of us, happens to be a car. Matt came to own his 1969 VW Beetle as a hand-me-down that had been bought and sold through a few family members before winding up with him. He's been driving it since he ...

    RR of the Day: 1987 GMC Thompson Short Bus

    It's safe to say that when we came across a school bus in our Flickr pool we were a bit shocked. It's not everyday that we see a yellow short bus on our daily slog, so the idea that somebody would use it as regular transportation left us somewhat dumbfounded. However, when we looked into it ...

    RR of the Day: 1972 Austin-Mini

    A few of us around Autoblog HQ have an affinity for some of the more diminutive automotive offerings. When it comes to the classic Mini, it just doesn't seem to get any better. Although its current iteration is one of the great vehicles to come out this century, they look downright bloated compared ...

    RR of the Week: Poll Results

    We said last Friday that we love the FD RX-7 and apparently, so do you. When polling ended over the weekend, ebaine1's 1993 example received 42-percent of the 1,673 votes cast between Saturday morning and Sunday night.The red rotary-powered ride beat out a gorgeous '77 Lancia Scorpion by 320 votes, ...

    Chrysler set to recall some 2006 Dodge Rams

    There are cheap recalls and there are expensive recalls. Luckily for the Chrysler Group the current recall of 86,333 '06 Dodge Rams built between Nov. 7, 2005, and April 27, 2006 amounts to little more than adding grease to wheel bearings. Unfortunately for 2006 Ram owners if this issue is left ...

    POLL: RR of the Week

    Our readers have some of the most interesting rides in the whole of the webiverse. It's plain to see that your automotive enthusiasm runs the gamut from cultish Italian iron, to precision corner-carvers; ill-fated sedans to rough-and-tumble pickups; even oddly shaped 'Aminos.Some fill us with envy, ...
