About PetrolBlog

PetrolBlog is the unashamedly unfashionable car blog, championing the rare, the obscure, the mundane and the forgotten.

With one foot in the 80s and the other in the 90s, PetrolBlog will occasionally wander a little off-piste, in search of gems from the 60s and 70s, and identifying the new cars that might be PB heroes of the future.

Launched in March 2010, the site occupies a dusty corner of the internet, happy to remain resolutely independent, decidedly niche and utterly unconventional. PetrolBlog has never chased hits or page views and doesn’t rely on press releases or press cars to survive.

All of which means the waffle and bunk you read will be unique, down to earth and from the heart. If it doesn’t feel authentic, it won’t get published.

Following a year in the wilderness, PetrolBlog returned in the summer of 2018 and, following a polite request from Paul Young, it’s coming back to stay this time. Rather worryingly, Paul left his hat in the lock-up, so there’s every chance he might call it home.

Pour yourself a glass of Blue Nun, stick a few KP Skips in a Rumbletums bowl and have a read. Hopefully, you’ll find something of interest.
