- +


Here is a colour photograph of James Dean standing alongside his Porsche Spyder at the Casa de Petrol filling station in 1955. Dean had picked up his Spyder earlier in the day at Competition Motors on Vine Street (across from the Hollywood Ranch Market) and drove over the hill to the gas station that was near his log cabin home at 14611 Sutton Street in Sherman Oaks. Dean was killed in his car ("Little Bastard") later that day on his way to the Salinas road races.
