1. James Dean

The photo was taken by a fan at a gas station in California on September 30, 1955. Just hours later Dean swerved his Porsche 550 Spyder to avoid an incoming car and ended up in a ditch. “That guy’s gotta stop… He’ll see us,” were Dean’s last words, spoken to his passenger, Porsche mechanic Rolf Wütherich, who survived the crash. The guy didn’t stop.
