cover

Rebel Without a Cause  (1955) An American classic that needs no introduction. James Dean's depiction of angst-ridden teenage alienation created a cult following that has scarcely been equaled.  His mildly customized 1949 Mercury (nosed, decked, and lowered with dual exhaust) gave the 49-51 Mercs legendary status among customizers.  DVD
