We're looking for the best muscle cars in the country to duke it out on the track. Have you got what it takes to win "The Jacket"?
We’re looking for a few good cars for our annual Muscle Car Of The Year competition, which will take place Monday, July 15 at our secret test location in central Ohio. We did this last year, and it was a blast for all involved! If we select you, you’ll have the opportunity to strut your stuff in front of our cameras in three test regimes: the drag strip, the speed-stop challenge, and a high-speed autocross. The car with the smallest combined elapsed time in all three events will be declared the Muscle Car Of The Year on the cover of our December 2013 issue—and you’ll get a really cool custom embroidered winner’s jacket! If you’ve got a rear-wheel drive domestic muscle car that is well versed in all-around performance, we’d like to hear from you!
We’re looking for a wide selection of pro and home-build sheetmetal built at all budget levels; our selection process will take into account appearance, as well as how well you used your available resources. (Translation: You won’t be penalized if you aren’t rich.) All 20 competitors—win or lose—will be featured in our December 2013 issue. MCOTY is pretty wide open, and there are only a few rules. You must pass an NHRA safety inspection (for a given car’s performance ability), and tires must have a treadwear rating of 180 or higher. There’s no cost to enter, and the deadline for submissions is Wednesday, May 15—all you have to do is send us a brief email with a rundown of your car’s equipment, a couple of good photos, and any questions you may have. Selected invitees will be contacted no later than Monday, June 17.
Interested?! Send us a brief email to email@example.com with the following info and "MCOTY" as a subject line:
Daytime cellphone number
Vehicle description (give specs)
At least two photos of the completed car
