    Singer Bobby Darin stands beside a hand-made automobile called the "Bobby Darin Dream Car", unveiled on March 31, 1961 in Hollywood.

    Di Dia toured the car around the country, when Darin wasn't using it for public appearances. After publicity and film use, Darin donated his "Dream Car" to the St. Louis Museum of Transportation in 1970 where it remains.

  6. Freakin' Kevin Spacey's 2004 "Beyond the Sea" movie ruined Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee for me. It was so depressing and she was so mean to him that the cool, fun pre-pschodelic '60s youth vibe those two had is destroyed for me.

    I know what you mean about Kevin Spacey! yuck!:confused: but not even him can spoil Bobby Darin for me.

    Bobby and Sandra will remain forever icons of the late 50s very early 60s for me....particularly Bobby, and all his marvelous songs!:D

  9. I'm no Bobby and Sandra expert - and I loved her movies growing up - but he seems like the nice one of the two / she seems to have been kinda mean to him and snarky in general. But who knows if that's true - it's just what I've read and how the movie presented them.

    Fantastic car

    Now that looks like it would have been a certainty for AMT or Revell to market as a model kit at that time! I don't think they ever did, or at least I never saw such a kit.

    Looks like that was taken about the time he starred in the TV series Hennessey, around 1960.

    It's always struck me how much Kim Darby (when she played in the original True Grit in 1969) looked like Amelia.
