I have been meaning to bring this up for some time and now I noticed in the 1451GT thread there is talk that the color might be changed. I grew up around classic cars, my father was into big old American cars. He always preached that it was a no-no to change the original color of a car, even if you didn't like it. I had a '69 Corvette for a number of years. In the Corvette community it is taboo to change the original color and it will cost you points when being judged. But the Ferrari community seems to accept it. Even when being judged or certified Classiche. And it doesn't seem to have a big effect on the value of a car. (It does to me but I think I am in the minority.) The Ferrari community even dismisses interior color changes as well. (I think the exterior and interior colors need to be period, but I could be wrong.) Yes, people have a right to do what they want with their cars, but in this hobby we strive to keep things original. That's the goal. I am not telling people what to do but the Ferrari community should demand original colors if people want to take top awards, don't you think? So how did it develop that color is not an issue for judging? How come Classiche doesn't require the cars to wear the original color they were born with? I know the color is not on the VIN plate but the world seems to know what color each of these cars were when they left the factory.
