    Reader Ride: 1992 Infiniti G20
    1185544560

    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 returns next week
    1184794680

    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 ...

    RR Of The Day: Merkur XR4Ti
    1171479480

    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 ...

    Return of the RR of the Week: Poll Results
    1170687960

    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 ...

    RR of the Day: Volvo 854 T5R - Super Swede
    1165879500

    We admit it's a little unfair to feature a car as RR of the Day that's owned and was built by a tuning shop, but frankly we were so impressed with this 1995 Volvo 855 T5R built by RKAutotechnik in California that we just had to show you. The car you see here is one of only 180 yellow sedans ...

    RR of the Day - 1965 Corvair Corsa turbo convertible
    1165592160

    The Corvair was GM's Porsche 911, but better, at least in some ways.. Debuting in 1960, the Corvair seemed totally out of left field from GM. It featured an air-cooled, horizontally-opposed powerplant mounted in the rear and a notorious swing-axle suspension (it was no more dangerous than its ...

    RR of the Week - Poll results
    1165239240

    Last week's RR of the Day polling ended last night and in a close race, the 1983 Mazda RX-7 owned by Autoblog reader and Flickr member TactiBlue beat out David Moffitt's BMW 325is. A scant 64 votes separated the two after a total of 2,429 votes were cast, with as little as three votes separating ...

    RR of the Day: MkII Toyota Supra
    1164121380

    The MkII Toyota Supra never received the affection garnered by its younger siblings, but it set the standard for future coupes and is still beloved in certain circles.Power came from either a 2- or 2.8-liter inline six that produced anywhere between 145 and 161 HP and was channeled through a ...

    Autocross RR of the Week results
    1164034860

    Last week's autocross-themed RR of the Week was another close race (I'll take that pun, thank you); with a scant five votes separating first and second place.It came down to two front-engine, four-pot, drop tops: the Mazda Miata, a cone-slayer if there ever was one, and the Honda S2000, with revs ...

    POLL Results: RR of the Week - 11/6 through 11/10
    1163444280

    The votes have been tallied for this week's RR of the Day poll, and we're this close to calling for a recount. The winner with some 600 votes under its belt (28%) is the mildly-modded 2001 Audi S4 of Julia Howard. The S4 had some pretty stiff and very interesting competition, which makes this ...

    RR of the Day: Three-wheelin' like only a Miata should
    1163437500

    We couldn't find a better way to kick off our autocross-themed RR of the Week than showcasing one of the most potent cone-assassins available, the Mazda Miata. Certainly, the two killer photos of Alex Renner's Miata in action made for eye-candy of the highest order, but as soon as we saw the ...

    RR of the Day: 2001 Audi S4
    1163083920

    The last generation (B5) of the Audi S4 was a force to be reckoned with. The twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6, coupled to the automaker's legendary Quattro system made the S4 one of the great sleepers to come out of Germany. Unfortunately, the combination of misplaced weight, a high sticker and a duo of ...

    RR of the Day: Holden the Goat in high esteem
    1162824600

    The idea of refitting your set of North American wheels to resemble its domestic market counterpart is not new. One of the more popular conversions has been transforming the Nissan 240SX back into the JDM-spec Silvia from which it sprung. Until the SEMA show last week, however, we were unaware one ...

    RR of the Day: LS6-powered Porsche 914
    1161797460

    Well, unfortunately we quickly ran out of useable Camaro submissions to continue our theme this week, so we were forced to dig into the Autoblog Flickr pool and find something else suitable to show off today. We think we did a good job with this LS6-powered Porsche 914. Taking a tiny car and ...

    RR of the Day: 1967 Chevy Camaro SS 396
    1161698340

    Our second featured Camaro this week is another one from 1967, which, let's face it, was a good year for Camaros. This '67 Camaro SS 396 was purchased for $800 back in 1986 and it's been a personal project of Flickr member BinCali ever since. It was wasting away in a car port that BinCali passed on ...

    POLL Results: RR of the Week
    1161643020

    Despite a lopsided fight of four Subarus against one lonely Mitsubishi EVO in our latest RR of the Week poll, the lone EVO proved to be the better car, at least by our voters' standards. It could also be the case that Mitsubishi fans united in support the single EVO, whereas WRX faithful were split ...

    RR of the Day: 1967 Chevy Camaro RS/SS
    1161635400

    Kicking off Camaro Week for our RR of the Day feature's is Flickr member Kyler's 1967 Chevy Camaro RS/SS. Not only does this car exist in the upper echelon of Camaro annals, it also happened to be the subject of the very first piece of automotive journalism I ever penned, so it gets extra points ...

    POLL: RR of the Week

    click on any image for a refresherThis week we decided to narrow the focus of our RR of the Day selections to include just two cars that are natural born enemies: the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and the Subaru WRX/WRX STi. From the submissions that poured in we've been forced to conclude that ...

    RR of the Day: the ugly bugeye '02 Subaru WRX

    We're going forward with our EVO / WRX theme this week for the RR of the Day feature, which means we'll do our best to pick out good examples of these cars in our Flickr pool while they last. If you've got an EVO or WRX you haven't submitted yet, follow the jump to learn how. It's easy!Today's RR ...

    RR of the Day: Daily driven track-tuned EVO MR
    1161007320

    UPDATE: Added link to videoFor some reason, we've yet to feature either a Subaru WRX (STi or otherwise) or Mitsubishi EVO as a RR of the Day. We'll remedy that omission today by featuring the 2005 Mitsubishi EVO MR of Flickr member eat_more_chicken. He says the MR is tuned for the track but driven ...
