What do you have? rims, lowered, tint and a hood that doesnt flow with stock bumpers and those grills that are outta place. Couple of N/A mods big deal your still far away from having the best focus.
Just my opinion.
Agreed. I think belacyrf should have won personally, but oh well. Congrats anyway, heck my car didn't win squat.

Congrats Goat...

It's cool folks, any vote is going to be a popularity contest you can't get by it. And you can't hold it against Goat for being a good guy and putting in alot of time on these boards making friends and getting votes!

Not to mention you have to respect quality NA build-ups! Congrats goat!!!

Bela makes a good point, (on top of him having outstanding car) if this was done on FJ with the same three cars it wouldn't even be a contest as he has 1000 more posts there than S2 has here (which doesn't even seem possible) and has a dedicated following, as he should.

Ride of the year is a point of view that not everyone will agree on, I don't think anyone thought there would be a consensus or there would have been no point in voting. S2, Bela and the rest of the ROTM winners put a lot of time and money into their rides and spent the time on the boards and got recognized. To those that say there are better sedans, all I can say is get them on the boards, we all like nice cars!

Congrats Goat!!

All three cars are stunning in my opinion. An N/A sedan is a fine example of going off the beaten path and I think that's great. Everyone nominated would have been worthy, but only one could win out overall.

Well i heard it like this:

He was lonely late one night, VERY VERY lonely. It was cold out side, the strippers and hookers had gone in for the night, he was sad. Decided to drive into the country to get away from the city, and make the best of being lonely. He came upon this farm in the middle of no where (where most farms are) and decided to check it out, and being the lonely self that he was he decided to go and play with the aniamals. After a little while, he remembered the beasteality articles that have been posted and remembered what happened to the guy and the horse, and said he would pass. Then looked at the cow and said NO WAY, then he saw chickens (passed) and pigs (too hard for him to hold on to) finally he saw some goats... tried to get one of them, and he fell on his face, saw a rope, roped the goat and made sweet sweet love to it all night long when he awoke with a farmers gun in his face.

Oh wait i was not supposed to tell that story....MY BAD!!!!!!! Sorry scott...

J/K Congrats scott and all the other nominatons
