Back in the 50s and 60s there were a couple of young Hollywood entertainers that were the stars of young America. Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee were on top. Bobby Darin was an extremely talented singer and Sandra Dee was on the big screen.
At the time Hollywood was a meca for custom cars. It seems everyone had there own specially modified set of wheels and the wilder the better. Bobby Darin fell in love with a car designed and built by Andy Di Dia. It was built between 1953 and 1960. Bobby bought the car and DROVE it. He and Sandra drove it to the Academy Awards more than once and it appeared in several movies.
Here are some photos of the car as it appeared at the 2010 Amelia Island Concours. It absolutely takes your breath away. To see more of the car, Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee just visit our Feature Car pages.

About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. The time there was very rewarding but the urge for a slower pace moved us to Tennessee a few years ago and we love it. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle. As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. When they don't we are usually out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
