FOUND, JAMES DEANS PORSCHE 550 SPYDER!  WELL NOT JAMES DEANS ACTUAL CAR, BUT THE CAR THAT WAS BUILT TO PORTRAY DEANS LITTLE BASTARD IN THE USA NETWORK MOVIE “THE DARKLINGS”.  EVEN AFTER A $1 MILLION REWARD, DEANS CAR, WHICH WENT MISSING AFTER THE DEVASTATING CRASH, HAS YET TO RESURFACE.  THIS CAR WAS A MAIN CHARACTER PLAYING A VERY BIG ROLE IN THE 2000 MOVIE.  BOUGHT NEW FROM PERRY D’S SPYDER (www.perryspyder.com) IN 2000 BY GREAT FALLS PRODUCTION AND THEN STORED AFTER THE MOVIE.  IT HAS ONLY 97 MILES ON IT!  PERRY D’S BODIES FIT DIRECTLY ONTO A VW PAN (1968 PAN IN THIS CASE) AND ARE LONGER IN LENGTH THAN THE REST OF THE KITS, ALLOWING ROOM FOR US LARGER PEOPLE.  IT ALSO GAVE SPACE BEHIND THE SEAT FOR A WEEKENDS WORTH OF LUGGAGE!  BECAUSE THE CAR WAS BUILT FOR FILM USE, THEY USED THE BASE KIT.  IT RUNS AND DRIVES EXCELLENT WITH WORKING GAUGES BUT MANY OF THE OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES WERE NOT PURCHASED WITH THIS CAR WHEN IT WAS BOUGHT NEW.  IF YOU WANT TO UPGRADE THE CAR, ALL THE PARTS ARE STILL AVALIABLE THROUGH PERRY D’S.  IT COMES WITH ALL THE DOCUMENTATION OF ITS MOVIE USE AND CAN BE USED AS AN ATTRACTION FOR YOUR BUSINESS, THE DEAN CARS HAVE ALWAYS BROUGHT A LOT OF ATTENTION TO US BECAUSE OF THE AMAZING STORY BEHIND THE DEAN CAR.
