Not wanting to be left out of the end of the year list fun here at Weekend Jalopnik we put together a list of our favorite posts from 2011.
Although we work hard here at Jalopnik to bring you awesome stories every day it's easy to get a little lost in the day-to-day sludge that is commoditized car news. But it wasn't until I took a look through this week's lists of top stories that I realized just how many great exclusives our team put together in 2011.
These are not the most important stories of 2011 and they're not the most-read stories, either. These are just our readers' favorites, narrowed down by Jalopnik readers to just ten classic stories.
As part of their 100 year celebration Chevrolet set up a weird bracket style voting system in an attempt to pick the best car the company ever produced. After 124,368 votes were cast the 1969 Camaro came out victorious. Second place went to the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.
The tiny Volkswagen Up! concepts that VW flooded Frankfurt with this year won't see American shores — but if they perform as well as VW seems to think they will, Europeans should soak up all the extraneous exclamation points VW can build.
We’re back! After a four-week summer break, Formula One has returned to Spa-Francorchamps. And it was overtake city, crazy qualifying and terribly gorgeous drives. Warning: spoilers.

Jalopnik commenter LeadfootYT posted this excellent video from this weekend's Ferraris at Lime Rock Park event that is just long enough to make us very very jealous we missed it. We've been promised more videos and pictures of the 100+ Ferrari event in the coming days, so be sure to keep an eye out for them at …
2011 was the 10th year the Historic Acropolis Rally was held in Greece, and this year's event failed to disappoint. As you can see from this video some amazing cars showed up and raced hard day and night through all of the mud, gravel and asphalt the course had to offer. (Music stops and engine noise starts around…
Our man in France J.F. Musial trudged out to the Mulsanne Straight in the wee hours of the morning just to snag this video of the cars running around the track at night. The sound. Oh Lord. The sound.
If you have the means to own and maintain one of the earliest Rolls–Royces ever made, you too can make participation in the recession a choice instead of a fact of life. The downside would be serious exposure to the elements and a total lack of lumbar support. Oh, the rich.
A Fort Worth, TX area school district is motivating students to work hard and stay in school with an annual car give away. Students earn tickets throughout the school year for good grades and attendance, each of which are an entry into the end of the year drawing for a brand new car. The Texas school district believes…
One Arizona Lexus owner named Jeff decided to try and replicate the 1989 Lexus LS400 advertisement shown here on his LS460 in the video up above. Comparing these two videos is a nitpicker's dream, so instead of trying to cover all the bases, we are simply going to suggest Jeff wear more appropriate footwear next…
Blizzaster 2011 continues all across the United States. The gigantic snow storm has resulted so far in 12,000 canceled flights, up to 60mph polar winds and thousands of car accidents like this one. Updated.
