A few observations:
Stripes: In the 30's each country was assigned national racing colors. Britain:Green, Italy:Red, France:Blue, Germany:Silver, etc. Since they quickly ran out of colors, some countries were assigned a body color and a stripe: USA: white w/blue stripe, (sometimes blue w/white) Canada: Green w/white, Scotland: blue w/white, etc. After WW II, Germany changed from silver to white.
The practice generally carried through to the early 1970's, when sponsors began to dictate color schemes.
Steering wheels: You don't mount a 3 spoke wheel upside down because the top spoke would block your view of the tach and other gauges.
