I can’t believe it’s actually December again… man, where did the time go. It seems like it was just yesterday when the big Christmas tree was going up in Rockefeller Center for 2009 and people were ice skating in circles in Central Park. Here at Ridelust.com we’ve had a pretty nutty year trying to bring you some of the best automotive news on the net. During that time we were also able to review a bunch of the newest cars for you guys as well. After some discussion we decided that we’d come up with a list of not the Top 10 Cars of 2010 like all those other blogs, but the Top 20 Cars of 2010. That’s right… we took it right to the next level! Some of these you’ll agree with and some you’ll no doubt crucify us over. Either way though we think this list is pretty spot on so feel free to check it out and let us know what you think.
