The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-1977 #25 Chevron B36

Max Cohen-Olivar,Alain Flotard, and Michel Dubois 1977 #25 Chevron B36

The Chevron B36 is a boxy car. I say that because it resembles a box with an aerodynamic nose and rear. It’s not a good look. With this paint scheme, it’s just bad. The colors are all wrong, and the design scheme is much too over done. It’s a bad look that earns an F.

The Mirage GR8 is another example of a decent design with a slightly over-sized air intake. Add in an odd shade of yellow intermixed with a red, white, and blue scheme, and you have a car that just has an odd look. Its a look that’s worth a C+.

Martini makes another appearance, this time on this 1977 Porsche 936/77. The Porsche 936/77 is a great looking car, but the air intake is a bit too big. Martini’s look on this car can be summed up in one word:Perfect. The bright white works well, and the blue and red stripes work well too. Giving this car anything less than an A is unfair!

The Renault Alpine A442 is a car with really good dimensions, but the giant air intake on top takes away from the overall look. The shade of yellow used here is good, and the black adds to it. The white stripes across the sides are pointless, and take away from the overall look. Given everything, I’ll give this car an A-.

Hershel McGriff and Doug McGriff 1976 #4 Dodge Charger

Wait, why is there a 1971 Dodge Charger in the 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans? Well, it doesn’t matter, since the 1971 Dodge Charger is a great looking car. Any NASCAR or Muscle Car fan recognizes the distinct look. Add in a great shade of white, and a great shade of metallic gold, and a great design scheme, and you have a car that is worth an A.
