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 relatively ordinary ride such a surprise victor. The very sharp 1967 Chevy Impala SS made a run at the title gathering 488 votes (22%), while the Euro-only 1984 BMW 745i Turbo also put up a fight earning 48
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 between their choices. We'll never know! Regardless, the race was extremely tight with the track tuned EVO attracting 576 votes (30%). The second place finisher in this race, the WRX Wagon, nearly cau
Damn! This is the first time we've been late in our Reader Ride duties, as you should've seen this post sometime on Monday, and we're beatin' ourselves up over it, really. Then again, it was pretty clear as soon as this week's RR of the Week poll began that the 1966 Porsche 912 would be in the winner's circle, and so it is. Said Porsche received 786 votes (42%), or more than double the car that got my vote, a 1986 Chrysler 5th Avenue on steroids that garnered 344 votes (19%). The remaining three
We feel bad for the other reader rides that had to go up against Chuck Goolsbee's well-known 1965 Jaguar E-Type. Not many cars can compete with the E-type in a popularity contest, and this week's poll proved just that. Chuck's Jag easily earned the honor of RR of the Week by capturing 44% of the vote (758 votes). Murden Mitten's 1968 BMW 1600 gave the Jag a decent fight, and any other week could have found itself atop the podium, but this week it earns second place honors with 30% of the vote (5
What a battle that took place between two rides up for the glorious title of RR of the Week over the weekend. The 1991 Acura NSX and 1951 Hudson Hornet were literally neck and neck the entire weekend, and when the dust settled with 2,646 votes cast (more than double our previous record for most votes cast), the 1991 Acura NSX won by a nose at the finish. About 35% of voters gave their clicks to the NSX, which equals 921 votes. The Hornet, meanwhile, was right behind with 32% of the vote, or abou

The first ever Autoblog Reader Ride of the Week has been chosen, and the convincing victory goes to the 1989 Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo featured on Friday. No doubt the car's transplanted 2-liter 4G63 motor making an estimated 400 horsepower helped it secure 42 percent of the 1,010 votes that were cast. The battle for the remaining spots was much more contested, with the stock 2002 Lincoln LSE earning second place by garnering 22 percent of the vote, the swank two-tone Volvo attracting 20 percent a
