Indeed i do. I think its an optical trick of the eye. The 250P has very high sides and the driving position i've noticed also seems to be pushed more towards the centre of the car. Taken at that angle it makes it look as if he's sitting closer to the left than he really is, if you look where the rear view mirror is on the dashboard as well it definately looks closer to the camera than the steering wheel meaning he must be sitting on the right side of it not the left. As for the font being slightly different on the left and right doors thats easily put down to the fact they were hand painted on and therefore wouldn't be a perfect match.

you are absolutely right, the mirror is the direct give away. Sorry for having caused this confusion. And yes, fonts are hand painted and obviously different at both sides of the car.

Not a problem Henk4, it took me quite a while to spot something that confirmed my theory. I quite enjoy it when there's a puzzle to solve
