Editor’s Note: The year 2013 gave us the C7 Chevrolet Corvette and took from us performance legends like Dean Jeffries and Stu Hilborn. We had a light-hearted look at the half-dozen Fast and Furious movies and got serious with dozens and dozens of new tech articles and how-tos. We even put a hot rodder’s spin on March Madness and Fantasy Football. All told, there were over 550 new articles from OnAllCylinders in 2013.
Before we turn the calendar to ’14, we’re taking a look back at our most-popular, most-read articles of 2013. In case you missed them, here are the Top 5 photo galleries from the past year.
1. Fast & Furious 6 Cars: A Gallery of Hot Rides from Fast and Furious 6
For every movie fan quick to bash the “Fast and Furious” movie franchise, there are hundreds more who adore them. People who love action. People who love speed. But mostly, it’s just people who love cars. Not unlike us.
2. Photo Gallery: Memorial Day 2013
A photo gallery of cool U.S. military vehicles. Stuff you don’t see every day. Stuff that fires missiles.
3. Photo Gallery: 42 Reasons Rats are Better than Groundhogs
For all of the people in this world who complain about rat rods in Facebook comments and whatnot, we’re never surprised when our rat rod photos and galleries prove popular. This particular gallery of 42 rat rods was our third-most-viewed gallery in 2013. At some point, people will just have to come to terms with the fact that most of us love the rats.
4. Photo Gallery: Around the World in 20 Rides!
International Summit Racing fans and readers shared with us photos of their rides from all over the globe. Predictably, the results were awesome.
