Lennon-Ferarri

The Wall Street Journal reports the English auction house Bonhams will offer a
1965 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 that once belonged to the late Beatles singer and
songwriter John Lennon at its auction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in
Chichester, England, on July 12.

According to the sales catalog, the Ferrari was the first car Lennon bought after
passing his driving test in February, 1965. As the story goes, news that Lennon
had passed the especially demanding English motor-vehicle test made headlines.
