Overview

Everyone knows James Dean died in a car crash. Does anyone know who was driving the other car? School children learn that Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. So which brother was flying? Most of us have had X-rays, but what does the "X" stand for? One-Up Trivia asks the questions that go beyond any other trivia game or quiz. It gives you not only the follow-up question to a "known" fact, but the answer and then some. You'll have trivia and true stories to share with and impress friends through many get-togethers! Get a leg up on the competition, and beat those so-called trivia buffs at their own game. Take trivia to the next level! Time: September 30, 1955, 5:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. Place: California Route 466 near Cholane at the 'Y' intersection with Route 41. Action: A brand new, silver Porsche Spyder 550, traveling at 85 mph crashes into a five year old, black and white Ford Custom Tudor coupe. Driver #1: At the wheel of the Porsche was rebel-without-a-cause, James Dean. The one-up: Who was Driver #2 in the Ford? Donald Turnupseed, a college student. Unlike Dean, he survived the crash. The Ford was repairable, but Dean's Porsche was described as "crumpled up like an empty cigarette pack." No charges were laid. Was the Porsche a jinx car? Dean's friends had talked of it giving them a bad feeling, well before the accident and the strange things that followed it. When the ruined Porsche was stripped for parts, the engine went to professional racer, Troy McHenry. He totaled in his next event. Another racer, William Eschrid, installed the drive train: next race, same thing. A third collector bought the front tires; both blew out on the same trip. California Highway Patrol bought the shell to use as a drive-safely-or-else exhibit for teenagers. It fell off its pedestal...onto a Sacramento high school student.
