In conjunction with yesterday's Audi Sport Quattro feature, we wanted to share more information about these wonderful rally monsters. So we've created a Petrolicious infographic that is chock full of interesting tidbits about the iconic car. For instance, did you know that only 224 short-wheelbase homologation specials were ever built?

For me there is one answer: Formula One. I grew up watching NASCAR and, once a year (Memorial Day), Cart or IRL or whatever open-wheel racing is called in the US this week. And so when I first encountered Formula One, I was blown away–"you mean cars car turn right too?!" It was an epiphany to say the least.

How far would you go? We're not talking about miles or kilometers here… What happens when a Petrolista finds his dream girl and decides to marry her? A rehearsal dinner and wedding that includes mementos to his love of cars, that’s what. But is it appropriate to shoehorn your car or love for cars into a party or event?

However, depending on where you live, or where you’re willing to travel, November 27th, Thanksgiving day, marks ski season's opening.

As Thanksgiving, winter break, and the holidays approach many people will be forced to fly and we all know how cruel and uncomfortable flying is.

I'd argue that some cars more about form than they are about function, sacrificing the latter in honor of the former.
