John Lennon: What Do I Have to Do to Put You in a Car Today?

From Yahoo!:

John Lennon's 1956 Austin Princess, the modified hearse featured in his 1973 documentary, "Imagine," is among items to be auctioned starting Oct. 2 at http://www.juliensauctions.com. The car, complete with Lennon-signed registration, is valued at $200,000 to $300,000, Julien's Auctions said Tuesday. Other items in the auction, which will conclude live Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, include the white suit Lennon wore for the Beatles' "Abbey Road" crosswalk album cover, the embroidered jacket he wore in "Imagine," Marilyn Monroe's 1961 daily appointment book (from the estate of her secretary May Reis), Monroe's personal phone and address book and Charlie Chaplin's grandfather clock, used in his 1918 short film, "How to Make Movies."
I got $250 for the Tercel I used to haul amps from the Spigot practice space to our shows.
