Customizing legend Dean Jeffries -- the man who painted the first Cobra (CSX2000), who built the Monkeemobile and the Green Hornet's Black Beauty, and who striped James Dean's infamous Porsche 550 Spyder with the nickname "Li'l Bastard" -- has died at the age of 80.

Jeffries died in his sleep Sunday night. The news was confirmed by author and Cobra owner, Tom Cotter.

Another great name in the car world takes the chequered flag.

We are hearing these announcements on a more frequent basis these days.

I remember Dean's work well.

Used to admire his talents in Custom Car Magazines, hidden inside my algebra books!

Passing in one's sleep is enviable.

I would like to be shot in the back by a jealous husband when my time comes....................

The hell with being shot in the back at 95, I want to die in bed at 95, while bedding my 18 yr old wife.
