Those are better results then what the publications chose (though I'm standing aside the Santa Fe for the SUV award <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> ). Are we going to choose the Car/Truck of the year now?

The results show a lot of things. First, that this has been the fairest COTY awards yet, and that Knicks organization with it was outstanding (and I appologise for not helping take care of it as I have for two years).<p>Second, that there is a lot of ignorance lying about, something we'll have to deal with in next years COTY contests.<p>That even an average car like the VE Commodore in Australia is an interesting proposition to anyone, worldwide.<p>That Jaguar still has a good perceived image amongst car fans.<p>That Mazda is doing very well perception wise amongst fans, picking up two prizes. <p>Overall, Great Awards, but I wish there was a little more maturity and less ignorance in chosing - not because what was elected, but because of why it was elected.<p>Anyway, top stuff, and congrats to Mazda, Holden, Chevrolet, Volvo, Jaguar, BMW, and Ferrari.
