Full Version: DSCOTY 2011: Rules & Intro

Dieselstation Car Of The Year is back! Once again it is time to reward the best new vehicles released for the new model year and admonish the crappy ones. We’re here to cover superminis to supercars, pickups to performance coupes, and everything in between.

The rules are pretty much the same as the last couple years. We're going to be voting on various categories...each category will be voted on for seven days until it closes, and then we will take the winner from each category and pit them together for an overall vote. Like last year, we will be splitting up the trucks and SUVs from the cars, so we will have a separate overall Dieselstation Car of the Year and Dieselstation SUV/Truck of the Year. The winners from each category will go into three overall votes and from there we will crown our Dieselstation Vehicles of the Year (Truck, Sports, and non-Sports). The categories are mainly for organizational purposes, so remember when it comes time to vote to not get too hung up on the title of the category and just vote for what you think is best!

To be eligible, a car must be either a new model or significantly updated for the 2011 model year. A few vehicles have been combined with their mechanical "twins" to reduce clutter. To simplify matters, just like in the past, the competition focuses only on models sold in the United States.

There are plenty of cars to choose from, and the categories are as follows:

Car of the Year

Subcompacts
Compacts
Boy Racers
Midsize Sedans
Wagons
Coupes
Compact Executive Sedans
Convertibles
Executive Sedans
Full-size Sedans
Luxury Sedans/Hatches
Sportscars
Performance Cars
Exotic
Open-top Exotics
Supercars
Minivans
Alternative Fuel

Truck of the Year

Compact SUVs
Premium Compact SUVs
Family SUVs
Luxury SUVs
Pickups

As each category gets posted for voting, it will be linked from this thread. Like last year, there will be honorable mention polls wherein every car and truck that was close to the winning vehicle will get a chance to redeem itself (close = having received a number of votes equal to or greater than 75% of the winning vehicle in that category). Depending on how the voting pans out, there may be only one of these polls for all eligible vehicles (if there aren’t many close votes) or more than one (if there are).

And yes, I'm still copying & pasting the same shit Clarkma wrote up ages ago.

Sweet to see it's in progress. I'd volunteer to help but I'm not up with all the new models in each new segment.

LMAO!! Sorry Guys!

I am finishing up school, and dealing with a job at school and interviews for an upcoming internship...

Razor is programming the internetz and fighting of Jordanian terrorists from capturing his GF, all while enjoying college life.

Moe is busy with a job, and doing whatever it is they do over there.

Clark, is finishing up school as well, and I know he has been jammed.

I work till like 10pm everyday, if I don't go home and get a solid couple hours of doing nothing before I sleep, I think I'll explode. I have Easter Sunday off, maybe I can get a couple categories up & running.
