1959 Pontiac Parisienne

Won at a charity auction by Mickey Finn, conga player with T.Rex, he gave it to Syd Barrett, original leader and visionary of Pink Floyd, in exchange for his Mini. Syd never drove it, leaving it on the street outside his flat in Earls Court, London (Where this picture was taken in 1969). It was originally brown, resprayed blue then resprayed pink when it was borrowed for use in the 1970 movie "Entertaining Mr Sloane". It remained on the same street until a passing admirer was handed the keys by Syd who no longer had any interest in it. On the side of the car in the now thick dust was the message "When are you going to move this? I have been trying to sweep the street". Whereabouts of this car is unknown today.
