© JIM MARSHALL PHOTOGRAPHY, LLC. San Francisco, 1968.  1965 TYPE 356 C: The 356 was Porsche’s first production model and had a nearly two-decade run as both a closed coupe and a convertible. This particular car is from the model’s last year of production and features a decidedly non-factory paint scheme, created at the request of famed singer Janis Joplin, who bought the car used and had it customized by a roadie for her band, Big Brother and the Holding Company. Apparently her friends were not the only ones who all drove Porsches.

Knowing that their wedding would cause a huge stir in the press, John Lennon and Yoko Ono decided to use their honeymoon to help champion world peace. On March 25, 1969, five days after their wedding, the duo climbed into the bed of room 902 at the Amsterdam Hilton and called the media. Because of their well known proclivity for appearing in the nude, the press assumed that Ono and Lennon would have sex in front of the cameras. Instead, the two appeared in pyjamas and talked about world peace.
