BOBBY DARIN: DREAM LOVER OR DREAM CAR?




We just saw these photos of Bobby Darin’s “dream car” and just HAD to share them. This futuristic vehicle was built by a friend of Bobby’s in Detroit and it took seven years to build (1953 to 1960) at a cost of $93,000. Darin told his friend he’d buy the car if he ever “hit it big.” He DID. and paid $150,000 for the car in 1961. Darin enjoyed the car for years and finally donated it to the St Louis Museum of Transportation in 1970, where it remains today. He died three years later.

  1. Thanks! I’m in love with that car. Looks like a converted Caddie. Wish I knew what all those controls did.

  2. I just love Bobby Darin’s music. A tremendous talent that left us way too soon. A very cool car, too. I agree that it looks like the batmobile!

  3. I found Bobby Darin after he had already passed – but I am so glad I did! I love his music and he just seemed so ultra cool, he and Sandra Dee. Love seeing this old car and a picture of him with it. Thanks!
