We're back with another edition of the rides that you drive! This month showcases five cars that your fellow readers drive. We'll be putting these cars on our Facebook page (facebook.com/superstreetmag) where you can help us pick the best one. The most 'liked' car will have a chance to win Ride of the Year and a full feature in the mag!
If you want to get your ride in this section, submit a hi-res photo of your car along with a spec list and your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure the image you send is at least a couple megabytes in size.
