James Dean's "Rebel Without a Cause" car now in Sacramento

From the California Automobile Museum.

During the height of baseball season, the California Automobile Museum of Sacramento and the National Automobile Museum of Reno entered into a friendly wager around a sixteen-game series pitting the local minor league baseball team, the River Cats, against the Reno Aces.

The bet was that the auto museum in the city of the team that lost the series would loan a famous car from its collection to the museum in the winning city.

If the River Cats won, the 1949 Mercury driven by James Dean in the 1955 movie Rebel Without a Cause would be loaned to the California Automobile Museum. If the Aces won, the National Automobile Museum would be loaned a 1932 Ford raced by legendary driver A.J. Foyt.
