I can't tell you much about this photo apart from it's a photo of the 'muletto' or test car that Alfa Romeo used to develop their beautiful eight cylinder 8C with. Wonderful style, clothes and elegance on display, but note how the mechanics with oily overalls are standing well in the background. Neil Twyman used this image, and some others that belong in a collection of an Italian friend, to build his own 'muletto'. Neil used an original 8C chassis that he bought in a scrapyard in Italy while supposedly on a skiing holiday, and brought it back strapped to the top of his Volvo estate. Our feature in Issue Four shows the stunning result.
