James Dean's Little Bastard
James Dean's lightning-rod career was cut short when he was killed while driving his car, the "Little Bastard," in 1955. This cursed cruiser had already killed two people in a racing accident before Dean purchased it. Actor Alec Guinness told Dean "If you get in that car, you will be found dead in it by this time next week." Seven days later, that prophecy came true. "Little Bastard" has gone to commit more mayhem. When placed in a garage, the entire complex burned down; Little Bastard was the sole survivor. On route to an exhibition, there was an accident and Little Bastard fell on top of the driver who was hauling it in his flat bed truck, killing him. During another accident in 1960, Little Bastard was supposedly destroyed - but the wreckage has never been found.
