SINCE our Street Machine Of The Year award first kicked off in 1988, it has for the most part, worked the same way: The magazine staff choose the finalists and the readers vote on their favourite. There is one winner, chosen solely by popular acclaim – the ultimate people’s choice award for our sport.
This year we’ve decided to make the biggest change to the award since 1988 by handing the job of choosing the 16 finalists over to you!
You’ll be choosing from the 80 Aussie-built cars that have been featured in Street Machine between the September 2017 and August 2018 issues.
We’ll run four rounds of voting, with readers picking their four favourites out of 20 cars in each round. The 16 cars with the most votes in total at the end of all four rounds will become SMOTY finalists.
The second round is open now, and closes 13 July at 11:59pm. Round three will open on 14 July. The 16 finalists will be announced in the September issue, on sale 16 August. Choose your FAVOURITE FOUR cars below to get started!
