Here's a great link for history of this car; http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/8c35.htm
Above: Another two cars Dickie fitted WADE blowers to, Walkers ERA & Poore's Alfa. This Alfa was first done prior to and competed in the 1950 Grand Prix (this was the first race in what we now know as the F1 World Championship). When Peter Giddings bought the car the WADE blowers were still on it. Dickie drove not far from home to go see it. Mr Greenfield owns the Poore car these days. The one pictured is a sister car that Michael has since helped out with at some historic races here in California.
Above: Oct 2012 at Sears Point is Peter Giddings warming up the very same Alfa Romeo. We towed it with Michael's Land Rover.
