Jen and I had a lot of fun with Photo of the Day this year. Last month when I posted this pic, several folks commented that it should be photo of the year. I agree.

I just went back through all 2,700+ blog posts we wrote in 2011. I gave up on trying to limit this list to ten pretty quickly--and I assume you guys are sick of year end top ten lists anyway. I tended toward stories that stimulated the most conversation or just put a smile on my face. Regular readers will probably recognize most or all of these. Anyway, I think we had a pretty good year at Autoholics, but let me know what you think, and what you'd like to see in 2012. And don't forget: you can write for us, too!

SEMA was awesome as always. Some of the most popular stories from our 2011 coverage were: The Goat, Old School SEMA WTF and Camaro "AWD SS".

The FT-86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ was, of course, huge this year.

Our caption contest continues to be a favorite, and our contest on November 18 got a huge response, with over 300 entries.

Hit the jump to see the rest of the stories that really stood out this year: street racing, insane mods, crazy wrecks and of course vigilante justice tend to dominate.

One thing about living in a place where custom cars are driven year round is that every so often you see a real gem. This past weekend as I was walking through the streets of San Francisco I came across these two beauties. Atrocity “A” was a mid-1990′s Lexus SC400 with a less than stellar fuschia paint job riding on color coded 28-inch rims. The fender wells looked as though they’d been widened with a Sawzall and the suspension had some of the scariest welds on it that I’ve ever seen. On a high note though this sucker had more ground clearance then a Hummer H1, so if you wanted to go off-road, then this was your baby. See ride #2 at RideLust

It's hard to improve on the work of Giorgetto Giugiaro, who designed the original De Tomaso Mangusta, but designer Maxime de Keiser came darn close with this recent study. More pics after the jump! Via carbodydesign.com

It looks like someone has finally found the Veyron's weakness: speed bumps! Watch!

Take one part VW Rabbit Pickup, one part Chrysler 300, and you get this... Via VWVortex

... and yes, it looks to be every bit as silly as it sounds. But it's rumored to be opening in California as early as next summer. And so far, most of the hype seems to be around a hovercraft bumpercars-like attraction modeled upon a flying-saucer-themed hovercraft ride that Disney designed but never implemented in the 60's. There's also been some testing of the prototype version of the "Radiator Springs Raceway" roller coster. Videos below the jump, via Technorati.
