baka-san: God, the dash

A great looking car. And such clean lines compared to todays insanely complicated bodywork.

Nige should have been a multiple world champion. He holds a few distinctions. As mentions in TFA he was the last driver ever hired by Enzo Ferrari, but he was also the last driver hired by Colin Chapman. First driver to win a F1 race with a semi automatic gearbox, first and to date only driver to be reigning F1 champion and Indy champion at the same time.

And here's a fascinating video. Nigel playing a F1 video game. First time playing it, and he's laughing and joking but the second he starts driving he's a robot, just no expression, 100% concentration. And he's clearly all over the place but his learning curve is amazing. After one lap he's nailed it.

Not even close. Cars from the 50s and 60s were much better. Behold the Dino 156

Does the buyer need to be vetted by Ferrari?  Is that still a thing?
