Beep Beep'm Beep Beep Yeah!

John Lennon received his first driver's license in 1965, by this time the Beatles, were world famous. Within hours, high-end luxury car dealers were outside Lennon's home in England, with cars including Jaguars, Maseratis and Aston Martins, according to Bonhams. Lennon chose the Ferrari.

He owned the Ferrari for only a few months before selling it. By that time, he had already purchased a Rolls-Royce limousine which he had painted in a psychedelic color scheme. He also owned a Mini Cooper at the time.

One of Lennon's last cars, a 1972 Chrysler Town and Country station wagon used in New York City. The car was said to be Lennon's favorite because it allowed him to travel unrecognized.


  1. Oh, to be a Beatle and have any car in the world at your disposal (to name only one of many, many earthly things at your disposal). I loved them, as you may know, Dawn, and John was may favorite. Saw them live in my ancient youth...thanks for spotlighting John's cars...I knew about the psychedelic Rolls, but not the others...

  2. Lady, Your welcome. I also loved the Beatles. George, was always my favorite. You were so lucky to see them in person. Paul, used to live in Tucson(maybe he still does), although I have never run into him.
