When I first met Vaughan,
he was a specialist...

in international
computerized traffic systems.

The racers of the day...
said that it was not
an easy car to drive fast.

I don't know what he is now.
Which brings us
to the second star...

a stunt man, former
race driver Colin Seagrave.

Colin Seagrave.
He will drive our replica
of James Dean's car.

How you doing?
Sure you're up for this?

You bet.
I myself shall play the role
of Dean's racing mechanic...

Rolf Voudrich, sent over
from the Porsche factory...

in Zuffenhausen, Germany.
Now, this mechanic
was himself fated to die...

in a car crash in Germany
26 years later.

The third,
and in some ways...

most important player...
the college student,
Donald Turnipseed...

played by movie stunt man
Brett Trask.

Brett Trask.
Turnipseed was on his way home
to Fresno for the weekend.

James Dean was on his way to
an automobile race in Salinas.

Salinas was just a dusty town
in Northern California.

The two would meet
for one moment.

But it was a moment that...
that would create
a Hollywood legend.

You'll notice that
we're not wearing helmets...

or safety padding of any kind.
Our cars are not equipped
with roll cages or seat belts.

We rely solely on the skill
of our drivers for our safety...

so that we can bring you
the ultimate in authenticity.
