For all those wondering what Purple Haze (called Black Eye Purple outside the US) actually looks like in the flesh here are some pictures taken by Goonery and posted on the MINI2 forms of his Oxford Plant test vehicle. Update: the pics were pulled from the forums but we've made them available with permission here: 1 / 2 / 3

From the pictures it looks to be darker than originally thought. Of course these apparently were taken on a grey English day.
