Years ago i read an article about a company that specializes in disaster research that painstakingly reconstructed Dean's fatal crash.

They had all the structural data on the vehicles, every picture from the scene, went back and re-measured stuff.

The only computer simulation that resulted in the same wreckage in the same place had Dean a few under the speed limit, and the other guy making an illegal left turn in front of him.

I have no idea if that's true, but it makes sense. It seems to be acceptable for people to violate traffic laws. I see it all the time. I want to wring their necks but I stop myself. Maybe the traffic lights really are farked up. Just because they entered the intersection in front of me when I had a green light doesn't necessarily mean they ran a red light, but if they didn't then the lights in my town are seriously farked up.

Just around the corner from here some kid failed to yield while making a left turn. Everyone says it's such a tragedy because it resulted in the death of his brother who was sitting in the front seat next to him, but nobody says he was a dumbass for failing to yield.

Same thing I heard, a 550A Spyder, then, was a very high-class automobile that, even today, rivals a modern sports car for handling under high-speed. There's no way he was speeding and miraculously lost control - the guy was a certified racing driver. Someone was an idiot and killed him through negligence and never got even a slap on the wrist.

Trapper439: YOLO


I've gone 150mph on a track, while driving - and on an open road when not.

James Dean didn't even clear 125mph. But, considering the time-frame he did it, I bet it was WAY MORE fun when he pushed that speed.

You know. When a guy's been dead longer than he had been alive, it's time to stop the mourning.

I spent the weekend in Dean's hometown of Fairmount, Indiana for the 33rd annual car show, so I'm getting a kick etc.../go every year with my dad, and brother/ //missed Toledo s first ever Fark party because of it// *so many beautiful cars there*

Not sure If deliberate, but Guinness in fact talked to Dean a week before and had a premonition. Told Dean if he got in that car he'd be dead in a week.

I seem to recall his mechanic who was riding shotgun when they crashed recounting Dean's last words being something like "He's got to see us"

Why do you come here ?
And why do you hang around ?
I'm so sorry
 
2012-09-30 10:01:27 AM
OK, in all seriousness, I looked it up and the driver who crashed into Dean was named "Turnupseed"??? Must have just fallen off the "turnup" truck, eh?
 
2012-09-30 11:43:10 AM
His death was not a tragedy. It was people doing stupid things. The fact it destroyed a 550 - that is a tragedy.

I heard that he drove his Harley right into a ditch.

Yes - because race car drivers never crash!

Dean was in a low-profile car, and he had passed a car just before the accident happen. I think to the young guy driving the other car, Dean came out of nowhere. Just a perfect-storm situation.

Yeah, you say that, and it's probably true...but it's also true that very good drivers in very good cars with no other idiots around get into fatal accidents. At those speeds, any momentary distraction will kill. Dean could have been changing radio stations or swearing at the stars.

But it's just as probable some fool caused that momentary distraction.

from findadeath:

I don't know what it is about James Dean - sexual charisma? Do people want him as a friend? A bed partner? A messiah? The fact remains that for over 50 years, Jimmy is still an A-lister. I wonder if the people that knew Jimmy, the ones that are left, what they think when they stroll down Hollywood Boulevard and see Jimmy's face peering out from every single souvenir shop. It's got to be weird to have known the guy then, and see the legend now. I wonder if they ever shake their heads and say, "He was just A. Guy." According to several of the gajillion books written about him, he had sexual relationships with lots of people - male and female. I do believe he was probably bi - I'm not sure you can fake sex with guys - but definitely preferred women. I don't think Jimmy was gay. For one reason, Kenneth Anger said that he was. That's all I needed. Anger also said Jimmy was into S&M and getting cigarettes put out on him. Honestly. Blah blah blah blah BLECH.
