Vote Now in The Inaugural OnAllCylinders Readers’ Choice Awards!

OAC-RC-Award-14The Emmy Awards take place Monday.

While this is the 66th installment of the long-running Emmys, it seems there are awards shows for just about everything these days. The movie industry has the Academy Awards and MTV Movie Awards. The music industry has the Grammy Awards, Music Video Awards, and Country Music Awards. And sports has the ESPY Awards.  There’s also the People’s Choice Awards, Kids’ Choice Awards, and Teen Choice Awards.

Shouldn’t hot rodders have a choice, too?

We think so.

That’s why we’ve created the OnAllCylinders Readers’ Choice Awards. It’s your opportunity to vote for a winner in 14 different automotive categories—categories you just might actually care about! Most outstanding lighting design in a variety series? No. Best muscle car of the 1970s? Yes. And there’s best big block engine, most iconic aftermarket parts brand, and best automotive forum, too.

You can vote for winners in all 14 categories by writing your choices in the comments section below or by voting on each individual category as it’s shared on the OnAllCylinders and Summit Racing Facebook pages. We’ve even left a space for write-ins on each ballot, so you can lobby for your own choices if you desire.

If you prefer coveralls to a tuxedo, cut pile upholstery to red carpet, and an idling engine to a rambling host, the OnAllCylinders Readers’ Choice awards are for you. Vote now!
