Welcome to Old Irish Racing's Model and Automobilia Collection

Your hosts Mike and Stirling will guide you through the Old Irish collection of notable model racing and road cars, from the early days of motoring, right up to the present day. Because of our love for Jaguar, the Coventry Cat's racing and production cars dominate our collection. However, our appreciation and love of cars also extends to other makes as well. In our collection, we highlight Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Austin Healey, Lotus, Aston Martin, BMW, Porsche, Mercedes and other notable racing and sports cars. We have over 1,500 models in our collection, there is sure to be something here of interest to you.

We also pay tribute to the great drivers as well as the cars. Be sure to visit the Drivers Hall of Fame!

Endurance racing and the demands it places on both man and machine have a particular fascination for me. Le Mans and Daytona, the Mille Miglia, Targa Florio, Sebring, Spa and the Dundrod TT are important statements on not only making a car fast, but making it go fast for a long ways. You will find many notable endurance race winners in our collection, with an emphasis on the grand prize, Le Mans. We start the tour with the Jaguar race cars from through the 1950's. Click on any image to see a larger image of that particular car in our collection.To go to another part of the collection, please select from one the links at the bottom of each page. Enjoy!

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.
