Now for the most time-consuming, but also one of the funnest categories of the 2010 Speedhunters Awards – Reader Car of the Year. We've included both the submissions you guys sent in last week, as well as some of the best cars from our Readers Rides posts of 2010.
You guys submitted some truly awesome machines, and it was incredibly hard for us to narrow down the group to the cars you'll find below. For your reference, I've included a very quick summary of the modifications done to each car for last week's submissions.
Again, this should be a very close vote, so please take your time and choose the one car that appeals to you.
