Gorgeous Harpo! Thank you very much! I wonder how close this colour photograph is to the true colour; it is a far more rich kind of yellow than I seem to remember from film footage.
I was very fond of the Renault team's 2016 "Belgian racing yellow". Lovely!

Right, the Belgian yellow is less dense, but not that different. Here's another one, with a slightly more correct yellow. The most beautiful racing car ever : Ferrari P 412 (which is basically a P3 disguised in P4) - Écurie Francorchamps, Daytona 1967 (Mairesse / "Beurlys").

Image
From http://s3.amazonaws.com

And the car that was the training workshop of most of the French racing drivers of the '60s and early '70s - R8 Gordini (here "millesime 1968" - The place should be Charade).

Some snot nosed kid named Schumacher, was gifted a ride in the Jordan 191. Did a few races with other teams also I think. :nod:

Edit: What was the thinking behind those tall intake boxes on the Ligier and Embassy?

It was not due to any bright "thinking" but, just like nowadays, bright "regulation".
The Ligier and its "Smurf" intake was designed by the aerodynamicist who designed the Matra 640...
Here's the start of the 1975 Spanish GP. You can't miss the navy air shafts :
