Dreams are made of stuff like this

During the 8th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, next month on May 11-12, three auction houses are trying to catch the buying public's eye with some wonderful automobiles. We will surely cover them at a later date, but there's one car that -in our view- stands out from the crowd: the 1950 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport offered by RM during its biennial sale at the Grimaldi Forum. With only three owners from new, this magnificent racing car comes with a totally known racing history going back to the 1951 24 Hours of Le Mans where it was co-driven by Juan-Manuel Fangio and Louis Rosier. From then on the Talbot-Lago has been entered in many other races, up to the present day. We could easily fill lots of pages with its full history, but why not check it out for yourself. The story starts on page 114 of RM's digital catalogue. Let's keep dreaming!

I can remember way back when there were two big blue 'large tablets' being driven in races here in Melbourne. Not highly thought of against the other GP cars but still very impressive, with a huge pre selector gearbox.
