1960 Di Dia 150
A clothing designer's creation became Bobby Darin's dream car. While Detroit native Andy Di Dia's Clothing designs were elegant and traditional, his single automobile design was unrestrained and unconventional. Construction of the hand-built Di Dia 150 lasted from 1953 to 1960 and cost over $150,000 to build. Today, it would approach $1.5 million. It has a V8 engine with a 125-inch wheelbase.

Di Dia friend, singer and actor Bobby Darin, was enchanted by the car and obtained it from Di Dia. Bobby drove it to the Academy Awards and in movies. It was donated in 1970, three years after his death.
