Well, folks, it’s that time of the year again. It’s the time when we show who shined and who didn’t in the automotive enthusiasts world. This year’s awards will be greater than any other year before it, just because there seemed to be so many great cars offered for the 2009-2010 model years. Remember that, in order for a car to be eligible, it had to be on sale at some point in 2009, whether it be an 09 or 10 model. This becomes a more interesting battle, due to the fact that both the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro and 2010 Ford Mustang get to be pitted against one another by your voting, not just by who’s faster.

Also, for the first time ever, I’ll be showcasing the best and worst awards of the 2009 year, the best green cars of the year, and also a list made out by you, the reader, on what were the best and worst things of the year. They can range from automotive bailouts, to gas prices, and even to President Obama taking government control of General Motors. Whatever you want. This is your awards ceremony.

So, hey, get your google fingers ready, your old car magazines out, and start filling out your top cars of the year. Remember to send them to me in order for your voice to be heard.


There are 27 cars this year, so the numbering will be from 1-27; one being the best, of course. One way that I’ve found it easiest, is to break it down with your top 10 first, your top 15 after that, and then finish out the numbering. It certainly won’t be easy to vote, especially with the various surprises I have set up for this year.

P.S. If you don’t see a car on the list that you want to add on, feel free to add it and number it. I just have to make the final approval of it whenever you send me your list. Some friends of mine have already put cars on the list that would never see the light of day on RawAutos CotY Awards. Also, major production vehicles only, folks. Not the new Ariel Atom, or anything of that sort. It’s not a car that too many people can really get a hold of.
