  2. Two nice little roadsters there. Look at the exhaust outlets on the dark car. Wonder if the dumbass realises how close he was to the pearly gates.

  7. This guy was James Deans mechanic, Rolf W. as someone else mentioned on this thread. He was thrown from the car, got a broken jaw. Not sheet metal.

    here are a couple of old pics , my dad was in the state police in the early 50's , these are of accident investigations . my dad is all 3 . i have more someplace . we lost him at a young age (1969) , i came across these looking through my mothers stuff (we lost her in 2000) , these bring back a lot of memories . he was proud of his days in the state police , he later went on to become the chief of police in the small town we lived in . mopar210

    sad, sad, sad tale
     
  13. James Dean Memorial Intersection today. James Dean's car would have been approximately in the same place as the school bus. Report said he was going north to Salinas but the school bus is actually traveling west on hwy 42 toward Paso Robles.

    I read once that when Deans Porsche was being unloaded at the garage, that it fell off the trailer and broke a guys leg.

    Then a dentist in L.A. bought the engine for his race car and was killed when he crashed it at an event with the Dean engine in it.
