In this surreal painting by Duggie Fields, Pink Floyd’s original guitarist/singer/songwriter/acid-casualty Syd Barrett is seen leaning casually against the Pink Pontiac Parisenne that got from Mickey Finn, who became the bongo-player for T-Rex, after Syd swapped his Mini for it. Syd, however, didn’t have a clue what to do with this massive American car, and never drove it even once (though it reportedly didn’t work anyway). Eventually, the car accumulated dust, parking tickets and legal notices and, finally, it was towed away. In it’s next life, the car can be seen in action in the 1970 British movie Entertaining Mr. Sloane, where it plays a major part and is featured prominently throughout the movie.
