RR of the Day

    RR of the Day: 1993 Mazda RX-7

    We sure do love us some FDs. Yes, the turbo rotary is a ticking time bomb, just waiting for the slightest hint of ping to send shards of that wonderful Wankel through the hood, and yes, the engine has to be rebuilt every 40-60k miles, but if you had to pick a vehicle from the 90s (hell, even today) ...

    RR of the Day: 1991 Chevrolet S-10 Baja

    Flickr user "91 s-10baja" shares with us his -- you guessed it -- '91 Chevy S-10 Baja in all its trick-looking bestickered glory. We love the simple, straightforward look of the old squared-off S-10s in general, and the Baja package that was offered from '88 to '91 really dialed things up a notch. ...

    RR Of The Day: Merkur XR4Ti

    Merkurs are some of our favorite cars. Flickr pool member sncollins has a nice '88 XR4Ti he's been wheeling around for the last 20,000 miles or so. Powered by the tough-as-nails 2.3 liter turbocharged four that also saw service under the hood of SVO Mustangs and other Fox-platform cars, even a ...

    RR of the Day: Holden Commodore VU S Ute

    While we may not be as obsessed with all-things-Caminage as some other sites, we have a hard time denying the useful versatility of a rear-wheel drive sedan, with everything aft of the B-pillar removed and turned into a truck bed. Rumors are beginning to circulate that GM may be considering ...

    RR of the Day: 1977 Lancia Scorpion

    Iconic Italian design comes in many forms and one of those is the Lancia Monte Carlo. Sold abroad from 1975 through 1979, the Monte Carlo was based off the X1/9, and came equipped with a mid-mounted, 1995cc engine that produced upwards of 120 HP. It was the elder statesman to its platform sibling, ...

    Beater of the Week: Poll results

    Throughout the weekend, one vehicle held a commanding lead over the other beaters featured last week. As the polling drew to a close, that margin lessened, but still, Big Momma brought home the bacon. She wasn't without some serious competition, provide by the absolutely hideous Prelude, which came ...

    Beater of the Day: 1989 Chevrolet Caprice 9C1 Police Package

    How could we possibly deny featuring a retired police Caprice that goes by the name of Big Momma? We can't. We tried, but it was useless.Owned by Autoblog reader 787B (an admitted Wankel-lover), Big Momma's main use is to schlep a race-ready RX7 to and fro, along with all the prerequisite track day ...

    Beater of the Day: 1987 Honda Prelude Si

    Reader/Flickr member blodi admits up front that he no longer owns the car above. We're gonna let that slide, because seriously, it doesn't get much better than this. He bought the Prelude from a buddy for $50.00. That's right -- fifty bucks. The flat black paint was already in place when he took ...

    Beater of the Day: 1988 Jeep Comanche

    This '88 Comanche's got it all: "Anti-theft-grey" paint, one mismatched (and dented) door, custom "OUCH" spray-paint graphic on one side, Batman decal on the other, and a dog that hates riding in it. The ergonomics are lousy, the French cooling system (courtesy of the Jeep/AMC/Renault alliance) is ...

    Beater of the Day: 1986 Fiat X1/9

    What do you do when you want to experience the joys of mid-ship motoring, but can't afford exotic iron and don't want the reliability of an MR2? Well, have we got a Fiat for you.The Fiat X1/9 was produced in conjunction with Bertone and deep within the tight confines of the engine bay, beats a ...

    Beater of the Day: 1989 Buick Skyhawk

    What better way to start off this week's salute to beaters than to bring you a rusted and busted 1989 Buick Skyhawk?With just a few ticks over 119k on the clock, Flickr member Circax inherited this particular J-body from his grandfather and although it looks worse for the wear, it still manages to ...

    Return of the RR of the Week: Poll Results

    Our 2007 kickoff week for the Reader Ride of the Day was one of the best in recent memory and we can't tell you how good it was to bring back our favorite daily feature.Although there was a fair amount of four-wheeled pron to battle it out, in the end, Mike Hutch's 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R beat out ...

    POLL: Return of the RR of the Week

    This week signaled the triumphant return of our Reader Ride of the Day, and to say that we're pleased with the results would be a bit of an understatement. Our Flickr pool has been growing at a steady rate, which made it that much more difficult to select only one vehicle to highlight each day, but ...

    RR of the Day: 2005 Dodge SRT-4 ACR Edition

    The Dodge Neon SRT-4 is the embodiment of domestic compact performance. Take a 2.4-liter inline-four, boost the Hell out of it, send all the power to the front wheels and watch the BFG G-Force KDWs disappear into a smoky cloud of torque steering bliss. It's a hootin', hollerin' good time and it ...

    RR of the Day: 1997 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT

    Flicker user and Autoblog reader Marnie (a.k.a. *Your Pal Marnie on Flickr) acquired the "97 Legacy 2.5 GT pictured above because she needed something with AWD to act as a winter car. As any of you who live in areas where the white stuff falls during the cold months, this is entirely ...

    RR of the Day: 1973 BMW Bavaria

    Flicker user "lithuimbomb9999" bought this '73 BMW Bavaria back in 2001 and informs us that instead of one of the stock engines from its time (either a 2.8L or 3.0L inline 6 making 170 - 190 HP), the engine compartment of this old Bimmer hides a 3.5L six-cylinder from an '88 535i. That gives the ...

    RR of the Day: 1990 R32 Skyline GT-R

    What more really needs to be said about today's RR of the Day? Although not the first Skyline, the R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R was the pinnacle of Japanese performance in its day and, in certain circles, the most desirable of all the GT-Rs ever produced. The rigid, lightweight coupe, coupled with the ...

    RR of the Day: 2001 BMW M Coupé

    Everyone has a list of vehicles that they want to drive before they die, for me, today's RR of the Day is a vehicle that I've vowed to own. The first time I saw an M coupé in person at a strip mall in my hometown, I waited 20 minutes for the owner to come out, interrogated him for a half an ...
