Juan Manuel Fangio’s Legendary Race Cars Are Socked Away In A Small Town In Argentina

Not my story but I sure would love too see it.

In San José de Balcarce, a little town near the Argentinian city of Mar del Plata, you’ll find a temple of motorsport history dedicated to one of the best racers in the world. I’m referring to the Juan M. Fangio Museum.

My visit to the museum gestated about a year ago while I was back in my home country of Colombia, thinking about the vintage sports car culture in South America, our racing history, and how to share that with the rest of then world. In the back of my head I knew there had to be plenty of people with stories to tell about Fangio, and I figured that a few of his cars probably remained here as well. Of course, the center of gravity for these things, if you will, is the official museum dedicated to the man’s racing career.
