A 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder – known as ‘The Giant Killer’ in the course of its illustrious racing career when the 1.5l flat four engine laid waste to Ferraris and Mercedes with twice the power.

James Dean met his untimely demise in just such a car – but not this one – a rare mint condition race winner that competed at Le Mans and the Nurbergring 1000km.

Currently up for auction – price to be set by the bidders.

    I know it’s a cliché but James Dean really was the coolest, most handsome man who ever lived wasn’t he?
    Most of the photos of him look like they could have been taken last week, his look is that timeless.

            Matlock(ed).?

            Is that a terribly forced and obscurely terrible joke or did your cat just walk across your keyboard?
            I don’t get it.

      I think I learned rebellion from Dean, rather than fall in popular line with the adoration of his looks. Also realised that I could be Dean, despite my gender, in those jeans, white T-shirt, red bomber jacket and docks and fag in the mouth. Just like Jett Rink, I WILL stroll up to redacted’s porch one day and punch him in the face.
