Our local newspaper reported today that Dean Jeffries passed away yesterday in his sleep.  He was 80 years old.  Dean did a custom paint job on James Dean's Porsche 550 Spyder.  Dean died in wreck less than a month alter.  He also painted many Indy 500 cars, created "Black Beauty" for the 1960s show "The Green Hornet" and built the Monkeemobile in just 10 days.  He also built a moon buggy for the James Bond film "Diamonds are Forever".
