The top ten car stories of 2011 on Hover Motor Co.
It's easy to forget just how many people actually have access to this place. They don't call it the World Wide Web for nothin'!
Naturally, some stories did better than others. For example, I have a real passion for model car stories, so I spend a great deal of time setting up pictures and making fancy slideshows for them. But in spite of all the effort, they rarely get much reaction from readers. I like them, though, and since I'm the one writing all the stories, I'll probably continue to do them as long as I keep the lights on here.
So what did people like to read? I've compiled a list of the top ten stories as measured by page views on Hover Motor Company in 2011. Links are provided as well, just in case you want to relive them. Results are taken from the Google Analytics for this site, and span from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. There are a couple of stories in there that were written in 2010, but they continued to generate enough page views to make it on the list. So, without further adieu, here are the top stories of 2011 ...
#10: 2011 Goodguys Midwestern Nationals pictures and coverage. More than 780 photos mean there will be something you love

As always, I really appreciate everyone who has come here to read these stories and look through the pictures this year. I'm also grateful to my family for letting me do this stuff, especially when they tag along with me. 2011 was a great year, and I think 2012 will be even better. We've got several stories already lined up, and I believe when you see it you'll agree that there's some really neat stuff in there. Happy new year!
