1/ A full colour front page, for those who prefer a colourful start.
2/ A repaint of the Gonzales Ferrari, with colours discovered to be more realistic than originally offered. It's a lighter, brighter car, to better befit what little evidence we have.

Mod team artists have learnt to avoid photos with bad colour's where possible. We've very few of Gonzales in blue. Black and white can show us which cars are lighter, and which cars are darker when seen together. There are also restored museum cars. While it's possible these do not have their original colours, most are similar to the one I've posted here. None are as dark as in the released 55 Mod.
It takes good detective work, to restore the closest thing possible to reality, to the cars we provide to GPL fans.

".... though he also raced in traditional Ferrari red during 1955" - Gonzalez ONLY drove in one championship race in 1955, the Argentine GP, in the dark blue/yellow Ferrari 625.

Actually Javier's drawing is what put me over when we were working on the mod. Thanks Greg.

But I will not change anything in the GPL, because I think that 1955 GPL mod is a work of art ....

I have made some new evidence that shows Gonzales racing the dark blue Ferrari, as suggested. Look carefully at the car, and you will see where the darkness meets reality.

I first cars I ever owned, were Dinky. I'd a Vanwall, a Connaught, and a Talbot Lago. But their paintwork soon had 'dinks' in them, from every conceivable angle.
EDIT : For those arriving late, I'll add how frustrating it was to wait for new cars to be made. A 1954 car in 1955, would have arrived at top speed!
