Recent discussion on Morrison's 67 G.T. 500

One issue I spotted is that they show a 66 G.T. 350 when they are talking about a 65 G.T. 350.  Maybe they couldn't find a 65 or usable 65 footage without earning a copyright strike...

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

or they are just idiots.   ;)

"....Jim faked his own death in Paris, and the reason the car was never found is because he still has it."  Yes, he goes out cruising in it pretty regularly with Elvis.

I agree.  Ridiculous theories.  Here is another link by a cold case investigator with his theory which meshes well with what was reported.

It has been my experience that usually the first story is the right story.  Not always, but more often than not.

Has anyone thought of looking for Morrison's car using the Ford VIN? Worked for Craig Jackson and Lil Red.

Yup, I sent Dave a link to a site to do a free VIN search, and he told me nothing came back.   Not very surprising.

After nearly 50 years of staying out public eye, Jim knows how to keep he Blue Lady registered under an alias.

Alias VIN that is.

 ;D

Maybe. Maybe its registered as a Mustang VIN and he lives in Texas?

Oh wait, I was thinking of someone else.

  Here is yet another theory:  the "blue lady" lives on in other modified, and or fixed up Mustangs and maybe Shelbys when it was parted out by a wrecking yard...back in the 70's.  The rest sold for scrap.

Motor Trend TV, Auto Biography Program has just released an episode entitled "The Story of Two Legendary Missing Mustangs, It discuses the Bullit car and Jim Morrison's Blue Lady and features a possible GT500 which has a lot of physical evidence that it may the the missing Morrison car. For now it is available on Motor Trend TV application on streaming. It mentions Bret Matteson having the Morrison Registration card but refusing to show the VIN.

Thatís not entirely accurate.

Bret bought the registration off eBay and the VIN is known to many people. I believe there are notes in the Registry as well. I will respect his desire to keep the number private. Its not so much refusing to share, but rather not publicly posting it for everyone to see.

Thanks for sharing. I would like to see what they say about the Mustang, especially the Mexico version.

Didn't Agent K say that he's not dead, "he just went back to his original planet" or was that Elvis?
