    That is an interesting interview. It never aired as intended.

    A good friend of mine was great friends with James Dean through racing. He is the last person to speak with him before the accident.

    Just heard Paul Walkers daughter is seeing Porsche for selling an unsafe car. The carrera gt. Kinda similar to how this guy past away too if I remember right.

    Unfortunately, I believe the commonality between the deaths of Dean and Walker is that they were most likely going too fast for the location and conditions.

    Hey, we all like to drive these cars (and look at the lists of others in the posting signatures) fast, but there is a time and place for everything.

    If Dean had his lights on he may still be here today. I'm sure he was speeding, but I believe it was the combination of the small profile and colour of his car which led to the other driver not seeing him and making the left turn in front of him. I am a big believer in DRL's.
