    Exclamation 10 Quick Facts about the upcoming 2011 Ride of the Year competition

    The contest will be between the 12 Ride of the Month winners in 2011. The prizes will be announced when the voting opens.

    With the Ride of the year contest coming soon (less than a week away), I thought I'd share a few interesting facts about this year's contest...


    1. 7 out of the 12 rides are Chevy
    2. 9 of the 12 rides competing are General Motors
    3. 0 of the 12 rides are Ford
    4. The oldest ride in this contest is a 1952 MG
    5. The Newest ride in the contest is a 2005 Nissan
    6. 1960's has the most representatives with 5 cars (4 contestants)
    7. 1970's also has 4 rides competing
    8. The poll will have NO rides from the 30's, 40's and 80's.
    9. We have two brothers competing in the same poll for the first time!
    10. Out of the sponsors, 104+ had the most of it's selections move on to the ROY poll with (4), followed by Iso-HEET with (3), then STA-BIL and The Engine Answerman each with (2) and finally the Cool Rides Online Forum with (1).


    A few of those tidbits of info were a little surprising for me. Especially the snubs on the Fords and a few of the popular decades! Now before you go saying that the sponsor selections were biased, remember that these are the rides that WON their monthly contest where you usually find a complete melting pot of Cool Rides

    Now get your voting fingers ready because the competition will start within the next week!

    Look at the bottom left of any Coolrides page.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.
