Since folks indicated some interest, here are some of the bits and pieces I have accumulated over the years.

I am a massive Gilles Villeneuve fan and have quite a bit of his gear.
This is a genuine original 1979 Bell helmet that he used in 1979. It is thought to be the helmet he used when he won the 1979 Long Beach Grand Prix. Massive patina and one of the few examples that retain the sponsorship stickers.
Gilles used only 15 helmets in his short career, so they very hard to get hold of. Most are owned by former sponsors and collectors and very rarely come to market.
Interesting when you compare that to Michael Schumacher who used up to 4 every race weekend and has used over 500 helmets.

This is a replica GPA helmet which is the later of the 2 types of helmet he used. The helmet is the actual period correct brand and model repainted in his colours.
The visor is an original GPA race used and autographed by Villeneuve.

1979 312 T4 front wing. This was part of the Jacques Swaters/ Ecurie Francorchamps collection that went to auction a few years back.
It was damaged by Villeneuve at Le Castellate circuit during testing of the T5 prototype. Signed by Villeneuve with circumstances annotated on wing which was then presented to Swaters who was a sponsor of GV.

Ultra rare race program from Zolder May 1982, which was of course the meeting where Villeneuve was killed in practise.
It is autographed by Gilles and is the only known copy to exist today.

Not Ferrari; but an original nose cone from Hamilton's 2007 McLaren.
This was the final year of free for all aero devices, and this high downforce spec wing is pure art.
