SINCE 1988, the Street Machine of the Year award has been the most prestigious gong in our sport - and it is a lucrative one too, thanks to a $20,000 first-prize thanks to Valvoline.


To be eligible, cars must be primarily Australian-built and featured in one of the past 12 issues of Street Machine. We conduct a series of reader polls to narrow down the field to just 16 cars. The ultimate winner is also decided by the readers and the time for that decision is now! 


SIMPLY click here to vote for your favourite vehicle. Voting opens 1 July 2019. To help you make your choice, you’ll also be able to view the original feature stories on all 16 finalists on the site. You can only vote once, so make it count!


Every person who votes puts themselves in the draw to win a VIP trip to Street Machine Summernats 33, valued at up to $7144!

If you win, we’ll shout you return flights to Canberra, put you up in a flash hotel for the duration and deck you out in the latest Street Machine clobber. And you’ll get two Platinum Summernats passes, invites to our exclusive Valvoline SMOTY party and $1000 spending money. How good is that?


Congratulations to Scott P, QLD. who has won our 2019 SMOTY Summernats VIP Experience!
