Here’s another to Mr Farina

In case you didn’t know, early in this blog’s life, I wrote a memorial for the first Formula 1 Word Champion. Mr Giuseppe “Nino” Farina. After many thoughts while driving the Black Series around. Taking corners through some of the mountain roads. I figured I would honor him again. But in a different.

This is a promise to every one. I will own Mr Farina’s Alfa Romeo 158/50. The very car he won the first Formula 1 World Championship in.

When he was racing in Formula 1, the cars were no where near as developed as they are now. The drivers’ idea of safety? Long pants, leather shoes, long sleeved shirt, gloves, and a helmet. You could not get away with that today. But I will honor Mr Farina’s legacy by owning that car.
