    I realize these are just touristy shots but thought some of you might be interested in seeing them. It was kinda crazy cuz when we pulled up there were 2 Porsches in front of it. Anyway not good shots but the best I could do at that moment! Hope you enjoy.

    Why are all the letters gone?
    And my, he was born in 1931? That makes him only a year younger than my dad. My dad is 75! To me, James Dean will remain forever young! (Could that be the advantage of dying young?????)

    I always thought he crashed his Porsche Spyder into another vehicle turning onto or crossing the highway.

    James Dean was a famous musician and actor from the 50's. Download some of his music legally ;)

    I thought he was on his motorbike when he crashed. Where was I? Oh ya, not born yet :p

    Mentos: this is...

    The part of the text on the site where this photo's from reads

    That one text (haven't googled far into the subject) doesn't suggest there was a tree involved...

    That is interesting! What things to be found on the internet! WOW!
    It was too fast for me to really notice a TREE, though. Must look at it again, maybe.

    Hi there, I was told that after the collision that james dean's porsche slammed into that tree. It appears that I may have been misinformed. I did alot of research myself and couldn't find anything to substantiate that claim. I perhaps need to work on my gullibility! Sorry my information was incorrect. I'll tell you though that everyone at that tree was making a big deal about it, even taking videos and such.
