Lemmy says:

” In your twenties, you think you are immortal. In your thirties, you hope you are immortal. In your forties, you just pray it doesn’t hurt too much, and by the time you reach my age, you become convinced that, well, it could be just around the corner. Do I think about death a lot? It’s difficult not to when you’re 65, son.” 

Saturday’s Fab Car Post

Today’s Car Post is about
Rock and Roll Cars —

specifically a couple that were
owned by the Fab Four .

We started out by showing
you George Harrison’s
1965 Aston Martin DB-5 –
the same model that appeared
in the James Bond feature film
“Goldfinger “.

As one of the coolest
British cars ever made,
Aston Martin was also
popular with Paul McCartney,
who had a 1966 DB-6.

There were minor differences
between the two models –
the DB-6 had a longer
wheelbase, a Ferrari style
rear-end, and was slightly
faster.

McCartney liked speed –
and he also acquired
a brand new
1967 Lamborghini
400 GT 2+2, which
featured a a 320 hp
4.0-liter V-12 engine
which could hit 150 MPH.

Meanwhile, John Lennon
managed to offend many
in the toffee-nosed set
when he got himself a
luxurious 1965 Rolls Royce
Phantom V and had it
painted in a psychedelic
color scheme.

” You swine – how dare you
do that to a Rolls Royce ? “ ,
he was asked by an angry
pedestrian on a London
street.

Upon hearing the story,
George Harrison had
another iconic Brit classic
– a 1966 Mini Cooper S –
a gift from manager
Brian Epstein, painted in
a similar colorful pattern.

Of course, the Beatles
wouldn’t have had much
rhythm without percussionist
Ringo Starr –

— and he was indeed
marching to the
beat of a different drummer
when he bought a rare
French luxury muscle-car
called a 1964 Facel Vega
Facel II —
described as the “Fastest
4-seater Coupé in the World”.

It recently sold at auction
for about 700,000 dollars.

Of all the Beatles, it might be
said that George was the most
ardent of car collectors —

And this leads us to another
one of those ironic moments
we love around here —

At his death, George owned
a 1994 McLaren F-1 that had
been specially built for him…

Eric Clapton wanted to buy it
from the surviving family ,
but they wouldn’t sell it.

I guess they felt that George
deserved to have something
he wouldn’t have to share
with Eric.
