If I lived in the states and close to LA, I would be there in a heart beat. I'd love to see that car, and Morrison's words, Not to mention memorabilia of Hendrix, Howlin' Wolf, Photograghs, Poster Art, concert posters, amazing. They don't have anything like that In Australia. That's pretty special. Have fun.
