A Rolls Royce once owned by John Lennon that was attacked for being disrespectful to England is now on display for a limited time at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria.

VICTORIA, B.C. — Imagine driving THIS YELLOW LIMOUSINE through strawberry fields, forever.

The museum staff had to take the front doors off the building to get the massive six-ton yellow Rolls Royce Phantom V limousine vehicle inside.

The museum, which acquired the vehicle as part of its permanent collection in 1987, says it can't keep the car on display all-year round because of crowds and its large size so it is only displayed for a short time each winter.

The Beatles singer purchased what was then a black Rolls Royce in 1965, the same year he received his driving permit. The vehicle was custom-made with a rear seat that converts into a double bed and also has a telephone, portable refrigerator, Sony television and custom sound system.

    I'm a big fan of John Lennon, and also a big fan of his limousine. I wish someday i can visit that museum to see his funky limo.
