On the heels of an immense wave of John Lennon nostalgia stemming from Rolling Stone publishing previously undisclosed tapes from his final interview, 30 years after his death, a luxury car crime has been committed (see photo below).
It seems that the ‘Mean Green Machine’, an eyesore that was the daily driver for John Lennon and wife Yoko Ono during the final years of his life, has sold at auction. Why does this amaze me? Because he also owned a 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom Limousine painted in wild psychedelic colors and patterns. Which would you rather have for an inflated price because it was formerly owned by a legend? Thought so. I would even settle for a Rolls Royce rental over a putrid green putter.
So what is this ‘Green Machine’? Also dubbed the ‘Dragon Wagon’, it is a muddled green 1972 Chrysler Town and Country station wagon. Yes, the legendary Beatles singer/songwriter tooled the streets of New York in a station wagon throughout his final years…when he could have afforded a number of luxury cars or exotic rental cars NY anytime he pleased.
I suppose it was a brilliant disguise, until fans caught onto his ride preference. This reminds me of a quote I find hilarious, “It isn’t stalking if you love the person”…classic.
John Lennon ordered the Dragon Wagon, and had it flown to him via private jet, how pedantic. If you are jealous, you can always order that clunker you’ve been eyeing and contact Imagine Lifestyles to arrange for one of our private jet charters to make delivery! I kid, I kid.
