This photo was also available as a large poster.
i have one framed, and one in a flat file.
These were available from Richard Kemp, many years ago.

I wouldn't.

I wonder too if that car is still around, where it is, what shape it's in, etc.

Interesting too how the picture really accentuates how long and tall Jimi was, and/or how small the car is! :mrgreen:

Of course, no scale model garage is complete without an Elan Hendrix poster. Can you spot it?
