16. Jimi Hendrix
Famous genius guitar player, James Marshall Hendrix or Jimi, wasn’t really a car guy. However, he was surrounded by cool machinery when his career took off in the late ’60s. His first taste of fame came when he moved to London and started The Jimi Hendrix Experience. There, he received a small Lotus Elan sports car.
But when Jimi returned to the U.S. in 1968, his record company gave him several Corvettes. He crashed all but the last one, a gray coupe he drove until his untimely death in 1970. Unfortunately, today, nobody knows the VIN number of Hendrix’s Corvette, so no one knows whether the car is still around or not.
