Jose Froilan Gonzalez was eleven years younger than his more famous countryman, Juan Manuel Fangio. Both were Formula 1 and sports car drivers in the heyday of Formula 1 racing, the 1950s. Fangio and Gonzalez each profited from the dictatorial regime of Argentine strongman Juan Peron. In fact Fangio was permitted by Peron to import pricey cars that he made great profits on. Gonzalez, on the other hand, was the beneficiary of a trucking business that his family ran in Buenos Aires. The money from the business enable "Pepito", as Jose' was called, enter the international racing world as a competitor.
