James Dean passed away September, 30th 1955 at 5:45pm at the intersection of Routes 466 and 41 at the young age of 24. My son Josh and I took a trip to Fairmount, Indiana last September to visit with his cousin Marky Winslow on the farm where James grew up and to take a walk in James' footsteps.

Marcus is a big car buff and showed us his classic collection
