2011 was an interesting year in The Garage, along with some changes in my own focus. As my attention turned more towards my duties at Autoblog Canada, Tom Williams and Jay Tomchuck stepped up their game with increased coverage of new cars and NASCAR respectively.
We had a major server move recently, which caused us to close the shop for close to a week and we apologize for that. The resulting behind the scenes changes are good though, as pages load much faster than they ever have.
To kick off 2012, we thought we’d have a look back through the stats to find out what content our readers loved the most this year. Here are our top 10 posts of 2011.
#10 Forgotten sport cars: Chevy Sprint Turbo. Tom’s Forgotten series has been a reader favorite since it started. In fact, there are no fewer than 4 of them in the top 10!
#5 NASCAR – David Ragan Plays NASCAR Survivor to Win at Daytona for Redemption. Them NASCAR peeps just love Jay’s view of the sport!
#1. Lightning McQueen Found. From way back in April, 2006 our readers still love seeing the full size Lightning McQueen.
Looking back, it is hard to believe that I first started working on The Garage Blog close to 8 years ago and it has been at this domain for more than 7. Equally tough to believe is that Tom has been here for 4 years and Jay is approaching 2 years in The Garage. We’ve had a great time and we hope our readers have gotten just as much out of this thing as we have!
Cheers to more gearheaded goodness in 2012!
