The one thing I absolutely love about land barges is that there’s something for every taste.

While I personally feel as though the famous Martini “Hippie” livery for a Porsche 917 entered into the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans is the most perfect livery—the car, era, and design match perfectly—we here at Petrolicious would love to know your favourite classic racing livery.

My taste in cars tends to border on the obscure, with a number of orphan marques on my list of vehicles I want to own…someday. Orphan marques, you ask?

With most of the car world devoted to making drivers happy, what of passengers? As a passenger, memorable experiences often depend on the vehicle, the road, the driver, and any other passengers. If one of those things is off, the drive may be unbearable. Get all four in sync, however, and it may not matter that you’re just a passenger.
