I saw this photo article and thought it would be appreciated on here, it really shows how the F1 world has changed in 50 years.

The photos of the mechanics working on the cars in Maranello are brilliant.

Brief Explanation from the article:
An incredible photo essay by LIFE photographer Thomas McAvoy, chronicling the Scuderia Ferrari racing team’s return trip from the 1956 BRDC International Trophy of Silverstone, to the Ferrari facilities where technicians wrenched the cars in preparation for the Monaco Grand Prix

I like the 'mesh screen' on the intake trumpets. So coarse a small child could fall through there.
Grip is a four letter word.

I have new found respect for the drivers who in those days truly risked their lives.

Great stuff, that is very impressive, and I don't even like Ferrari.
Wait a second, yes I do :?
Talking about them being modified Lancia's.
A long time ago (when I was in High school) my friend’s father had about a 1961 Lancia. I rode in it once and he scared the crap out of me. That little car screamed.
