One of the highlighted attractions which presented this seventh Auto Show was an unprecedented tribute to Juan Manuel Fangio, after 104 years of his birth, which was located in the Blue Pavilion and which moved thousands of visitors.
The family of the five-time world champion exhibited models that Fangio used during his successful sportive career and which today are on exhibition in his museum. The Mercedes Benz 300SL coupé roadster of 1958; the Maserati 250F, with which he obtained his fifth world championship in the Nürburgring Grand Prix; the Chevrolet 1940, with which he won the North International Grand Prix (Gran Premio Internacional Del Norte); and the almost unknown Simca Gordini of 1958, in which “el Chueco” raced through the woods in the park of Palermo and Rosario were there.
