2015 Ride of the Year Contest Poll

Every month in 2015, the Cool Rides Online team and our sponsors selected FIVE cool rides to feature each month.  Then we held an online poll that was open to the public to select that month’s “Ride of the Month”.  Below are the 12 Ride of the Month winners as chosen by YOU, the reader.


Now it is time to select the “2015 Cool Rides Online Ride of the Year” from the 12 monthly winners.  Below is the picture of each ride followed by a brief description of it.  At the bottom of the page, you will see a poll where you can vote for your favorite ride!   Visitors are allowed to vote once per day and the voting closes on the evening of February 15th. The winner of this poll will win the Ride of the Year honors and with that a $100 gift card, a personalized crystal award and will be featured on the cover of our next Cool Rides Online calendar!  The first and second runner-ups will each receive their own award along with product prizes from our sponsors.

February Winner – Roy’s 1955 Chevy Corvette

We get questions every timer we stop any where asking “what is it”? That’s the fun part telling people it’s a 60 year old Corvette and was the first year for GM offering a V8 engine and this is one of 15 copper color Corvettes ever sold out of the 700 ever produced . Then the most questioned asked is about the bubble top and trailer . Well the trailer is a original 1947 tear drop that we can sleep in and the bubble top is one of five ever made for the Autorama of the 50’s GM had made for the shows. We’ve been around the country from Ca to NY as seen here, love driving it and showing it on the highways of America over the last 33 plus years we’ve owned it.



March Winner – Scott’s 1970 Chevy Nova

This is my 1970 Nova novacaine we did lots of mods –  its lowered 3 inches front and back, side markers removed, chrome removed, blacked out bumpers, mirrored window tint… and that’s just the body. The motor is a pro built 500+hp 383 stroker by thunder valley automotive with a th350 and a 3500 stall with 4.10 gears line lock and exhaust cut outs and so much more. Hope you enjoy!

April Winner – Coby’s 1948 Chrysler New Yorker

This 1948 Chrysler New Yorker coupe was my uncles. My dad was 16 or 18 when he went with him to purchase this beautiful car






May Winner – Jim’s 1966 Ford Mustang

This is our ’66 Mustang couple that we have owned since ’99.  It is a metallic silver much like the original color.  She still has her 289 in her.  It has been completely restored with everything having been redone.  She has a sweet wet of mellow pipes that we love to hear rap.

We attend many car shows up north here, and have won many trophies from Peoples’ Choice, Best in Show, Best in Class, and Best Paint.  Can’t wait for summer to get back to the car shows once again.



June Winner – Jim’s 1950 Ford Crestliner

This is fully restored and hot rodded. The Body and interior were redone as original but with several modifications: 3/4 race flathead engine, NOS interior, lowered front and rear, hidden stereo under drivers seat.  It also includes a reproduction Crestliner steering wheel and 50 Merc hubcaps and trim rings. Period correct down to the headers and Smitty glass packs for 50s sound. Still working with 3 on the tree and overdrive.



July Winner – Nick’s 1954 Mercury Monterey Sun Valley

I love all 50’s cars as that is what I grew up with. My Merc is for me a car that i wished I owned when I was in my 20’s but couldn’t afford it I was always blown away by custom cars and I believe my Merc is as period as it can be. It looks great and sounds great. It is powered by a 302 ford engine from a 69 GT Mustang. It also has a 4 speed AOD tranny power steering an power disc brakes plus air conditioner.


August Winner – Earl’s 1966 Pontiac GTO

1966 Platinum Silver with a 389 tri-power, 4 speed, true ram air.
I purchased the car after my wife passed away to keep me occupied. My wife’s nick name was Moe so I named the car BOUTMOE…Im sure she is looking down smiling.




September Winner – Frank’s 1930 Ford Model A

This car was a dream come true, thanks to my wife!  Hence the picture with her in it for the first time.  It is a 1930 Model A all Ford, with a Ford body, 302 motor, C4 Trans and 8′ rear.
