Who came close, and who got crushed.

1 of 10
  • impala-vs-impala-round-1
    ROUND 1: These twin lowered Impalas almost tied, but the green-and-silver '62 squeaked out a victory.
  • chevelle-vs-chevelle-round-1
    ROUND 1: There was no contest between these two Chevelles, though. Sandman's '70 sent its opponent straight to the grave.
  • 6-series-versus-range-round-2
    ROUND 2: Considering how much we know RIDES readers dig SUVs, we'd have expected the Range to win—but instead, this 6 Series moved onto the next round.
  • camaro-versus-camaro-round-2
    ROUND 2: If the RIDES Madness voters are any indication of the Camaro game, chrome is out and T-tops are in.
  • donk-vs-donk-round-3
    ROUND 3: These two Donks were so close, we had to dive past the decimal point to see who won!
  • camaro-vs-camaro-round-3
    ROUND 3: No need for decimal diving in this contest, however. The blue 'Maro received an absolute and humbling beat-down.
  • jeep-versus-silverado-round-4
    ROUND 4: Our photo director's Jeep made it to the Elite Eight, but thanks to this purple Silverado, it was denied the Final Four. It was close, though.
  • donk-versus-chevelle-round-4
    ROUND 4: We know a lot of y'all love Donks—so where were ya when this silver masterpiece was fighting Jonathan Ivy's Chevelle?
  • chevelle-vs-silverado-round-5
    ROUND 5: In the battle between old-schools and trucks, it seems, RIDES readers just prefer to go with the whip with a trunk.
  • camaro-vs-panamera-round-5
    ROUND 5: The Panamera cleaned up all the way to the Final Four, but its matte white hotness couldn't defeat the monster 'Maro.
