Jim Morrison was a car guy?
Jim Morrison died 50 years ago today at 27 years young. Okay, we don't talk Shelby GT 500, a real muscle car. Nor do I know much of anything about Jim Morrison aside from singing a couple of hits I enjoy. The folks at Hagerty do. They have a good article on Jim Morrison and his Shelby GT 500 that seemingly has disappeared. Since the young Morrison fancied himself a filmmaker they is some footage of Jim and his prized Ford.

Yes, I know there are some Charger pics in the collage. I'm a Mopar guy.
