Default CSS TOTY Voting

This time up, I dont want people voting randomly because many could not even read. So voting will be done by POSTING which Truck You are going to Vote for.<p><B>Do It like this:<p>- Give 3 points to the truck that you think deserves to be CSS's 2005 TOTY<br>- Give 2 points to your second option<br>- Give 1 point to your third option.</B><p>^^ This is all to minimise bias and give the trucks a price as objective as possible.<p><U>Vote according to the following:</U><p>- <B>Importance and contributions to the industry</B> How important is this truck for the automotive industry or for the brand? Is it an interesting truck or will it make a revolution in its segment or hold an importance for the manufacturer?<p>- <B>Bumper to bumper</B> How well does it match up to the other vehicles in its segment? Is it marginally better or does it set a new standard?<p>- <B>Heritage</B> Doe sthe truck have to live up to a name and reputation? Is it building its own reputation? Furthermore, will the truck be remembered in 20 years.<p>Try to vote for a truck that is outstanding in these areas, not a truck you like. <I>Happy voting!</I><p><br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/2cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>_____________________<p>Nominees:<p><B>Honda Ridgeline:</B><p><B>Importance:</B> It is the company's first truck, and Honda want to prove capable.<p><B>Quick Technical Specs:</B><p>3.5 Liter V6, 255bhp, 245 lb/ft torque<p>5 speed auto<p>Variable Torque Split 4X4 system, 4 Wheel independant suspension and rear diff lock.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.offroaders.com/directory/honda/images/Ridgeline3.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>________<p><B>Mitsubishi Raider:</B><p><B>Importance:</B> Mitsubishi's return to the Truck/ute market, with a formula that can't go wrong, or Mitsubishi could go bust.

3 points for the controversial Honda Ridgeline. Not a big fan myself, but as Superfresa pointed, this isn't a beauty contest (which can get very subjective <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> ). Like it or not, this new entry from Honda re-writes the truck segment; its unique innovations provide much convenience for truck buyers and the edge needed to go ahead of the competition.<p>(Superfresa, do we have to include a paragrah for the 2nd and 3rd place as well?)<p>2 points for the Mitsubishi Raider.<p>1 point each for the Lincoln Mark LT & Toytota Tacoma/Hilux

No paragraph at all, unless you want to thank me for spending the last hour gathering pictures and information to make this as un-biased as possible <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>No look, if you can give your explanations, all the better, but if you dont care about giving some cars an explanation, just vote <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>And Knicks, I'm afraid you will have to decide wether the Lincoln or the Tpypta gets your last vote. They cant share 1 point <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

<I>Superfresa</I>, I too echo the others' complements: nice work. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><B>3 points</B>: Honda Ridgeline<br><B>2 points</B>: Toyota Tacoma/Hilux<br><B>1 point</B>: Lincoln LT<p>I am curious, though, as to why the Nissan Frontier and Dodge version of the Raider, the Dakota, don't appear as options -- seeing as they were new for '05 as well. One of the reasons is that it would change my listing order if the Nissan was added to the mix (and drop the Lincoln entirely): Honda &gt; Nissan &gt; Toyota.<p>Mike<br>______________<BR><BR>
