The light-blue 1965 Ferrari 330 GT, immaculately restored to its original condition in the mid 90s, was John's first car after he passed his driving test. Rumour has it, his driving test made headline news; so much so, every luxury car dealership close to his home in Weybridge rocked up with a car on the day, hoping the big man would pick theirs.

” So John was like a lot of rich musicians. A few toys here and there it appears.”
John was like a lot of rich entertainers ... a total hypocrite.
All we are saying ... is do like I say, not like I do.
You know why the English drink their beer warm?
Lucas makes refrigerators too..
The latter one looks remarkably like a mid-60’s Maserati Sebring coupe. I have to say, the Maserati is better-looking.
LOL... Lucas, where all the employees have to go home after dark.
You’re a dreamer.
Oooh, that hurts.
I’m not the only one.
