BMW, Corvette, Coca-Cola generated the most reactions on social media

As people were hitting the road for their last vacations of the summer last week, two car brands won the race on social. BMW and Corvette saw the most engagement with plenty of photos of shiny, colorful automobiles.

Here are the posts that reached an engagement score of 900-1,000:
