2018 has wildly come and gone, and I spent the year driving some awesome cars. Let’s look back and see which ones rose to the top.

10. 2005 Toyota Corolla XRS

A car that I used to learn stick, which ended up being a cracking sport compact.

9. 2016 Buick Regal GS


Watered-down ATS, be damned.

8. 2017 Subaru BRZ


Maybe it didn’t save the world like we wanted, but it put in its best effort.

7. 2007 BMW 328i (MT)


The way a BMW should be.

6. 2014 Cadillac ATS 2.0 Performance


The way a BMW should b-wait a minute.

5. 1995 Lexus SC400


My dream car, met expectations, actually surpassed them.

4. 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG


A maniacal brute, actually that’s an understatement.

3. 2016 Lexus RC F


An underdog that actually surprised me a bit.

2. 2008 Porsche Carrera S


Reawakened my love for Porsche, so that should tell you enough.

1. 2010 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500


Somehow makes the SL55 look tame...all while being the most sophisticated a 2010 Mustang can be.

So, here’s to 2019!
