  2. I used to see that yellow 412P on the streets of Hollywood. It was quite a sight!

  3. Anyone have vintage pics of the Fantuzzi Mangusta? Rumour has it in a veryt secret location awaiting restoration.

  4. Has anyone ever seen Dean driving a 1980 Maserati?
    I saw one the other day and was told it was his.

    1. I don't know about that, when I went looking for what he used to own that didn't show up, but a lot of dealership and car companies would loan cars to celebs just to have that car seem more glamorous
