Agnelli passed away in 2003. Ferrari named their 2003 contender after him, the 2003-GA.
that's true; I guess I'm getting old.

didn't they paint the gear box cover black after GA passed away though? and also rename the new car? I seem to have a clear image of a ferrari with a black cover in my mind... but then again, old age. anyways, thread hijacked... I used to think the benetton back then was purty... now I loko at it and it looks ugly...

the same thing happens with road cars...
