QUOTE indistinguishable rolling billboards ?? well then...what´s distinguishable bout a tube of metal ohh...my mistake...it´s....round i guess.
OK - lets try this - On this and other forums (fora?) there have bee numerous examples of roundly praised "conversions" of one F1 car to another - mostly by the simple artifice of producing new decals and paint jobs - and the results are quite convincing simply because physics and regulations have conspired to make most current cars fall into a narrow range of size and shape.
Now, take a Vanwall and paint it silver, a Mercedes W-196 in green and array an Auto Union in blue regalia and I am quite certain that most people would still be able to discern their origins.
There is no question that technology has advanced significantly in 50 years - and this advance has its benefits but it also exacts a price.
QUOTE Nobody has mentioned the Maserati 250F and that is a very demure picture of Diana Rigg. I remember her in a tight leather catsuit.
The Maser is certainly right up there - although truth be told, i prefer the "middle" body to the later Fantuzzi bodied cars which always looked to me to be drooping a bit front and rear.
Yes, I chose a restrained photo of Ms. Rigg - thought posting her on the forum was enough of a stretch of the rules without bumping into anyone's sensibilities. The black leather was nice but I preferred the "suit" she wore in a London production of "Abelard and Heloise" that I saw in 1971.
