PetrolBlog is the unashamedly unfashionable car blog, championing the rare, the obscure, the mundane and the forgotten.
Occasionally PB will wander back to the 1960s and 70s, as well as taking a glimpse at modern metal, searching for the PetrolBlog heroes of tomorrow.
The majority of stuff on PetrolBlog is waffle and some of it is bunk. But it’s all original and unique, so you won’t find guest posts on on wiper blades, insurance comparison sites and stuff that isn’t interesting.
PB has never chased unique visitors, page views or hits – a niche car blog isn’t going to rule the search engines. So pour yourself a glass of Blue Nun, grab some cheese footballs and join PB in the lock-up for some nostalgic waffle and bunk. There’s never anything good on TV.
Hopefully you’ll find at least one sentence of PetrolBlog remotely interesting. If not, sorry. Have you ever been to a Harvester before?
