Mystery behind James Dean's 'cursed' Porsche solved?
The mystery surrounding James Dean's lost, and some say cursed, Porsche Spyder 550 might be about to be solved-as a man from Washington claims to have witnessed it being hidden behind a wall in the 1960s.
The whereabouts of the famous Porsche (which Dean nicknamed 'Little Bastard') has been unknown since car customizer George Barris lent the mangled wreck to the National Safety Council-who put the car on display to teach others of the importance of road safety.
The car was lost in transit somewhere between Miami and Los Angeles in 1960 and its whereabouts to this day remain unknown.
Now, a unnamed man from Washington is claiming to have witnessed the car being hidden behind a false wall of a building in the 1960s.
Chicago’s Volo Auto Museum, who the man first contacted his claim, began offering a $1 Million reward for the car in 2005 and are now working hard to keep the alleged location of Dean's car under wraps while they determine all of ownership issues involved. Watch this space!
