JUAN MANUEL FANGIO

Here are the cars in our collection which J.M. Fangio drove during his career. Five time World Champion in Formula One, driving for Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz and Maserati. Fangio excelled in sports cars as well as grand prix cars. He is if not the best, one of the top two or three drivers ever to sit behind a wheel in motorsports competition. He is one of our racing heroes!

PLEASE NOTE: From 1968 into the 1990's tobacco companies sponsored many significant race cars. In the interest of historical accuracy, Old Irish Racing chooses to display models in our collection as historically accurate as possible. While seeing a tobacco advert on a car gives me no more desire to go smoke than seeing a car makes me want to go suck on its exhaust pipe. If tobacco (or alcohol) adverts on race cars offend you, please go look at nice pictures of bunnies and kittens on another site.
