#1. John Lennon’s 1956 Austin Princess Hearse from Imagine
In a film, created to promote Lennon’s song Imagine, this dream car appeared extensively. The film displays a day in the life of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and the car is driven by both in several scenes. Becoming song of the year in 2001, Lennon’s Imagine, has become the anthem for the peace movement.
