One of the dominant influences of my youth that helped to shape my obsession with denim and boots, James Byron Dean (February 8, 1931 - September 30, 1955), passed away 61 years ago today.

Casa de Petro, The gas station at the corner of Beverly Glen and Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks, where James Dean filled up the tank of his new 550 Porsche Spyder for the last time and then drove into immortality.

With his Mechanic Rolf W├╝therich that same day before heading out to the races in Salinas, California.
