The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-Mark Martin-1991

By David G. Firestone

The best driver to never win a championship Mark Martin races in his 1991 Folgers Ford Thunderbird this week.

Red, metallic gold, and white is always a great combination. I think metallic gold should be used more on race cars. The two-stripe design works well, but I don’t like the fact that the top stripe is interrupted by the window. The Folgers logo cut off by the wheel well, and fuel intake is annoying, and the over-sized Valvoline logo looks a little out of place. I also don’t like the black drop shadow on the white door number. A decent scheme, but there is a lot that can be improved it.
