New book out about the short life of Tara Browne, the man who inspired The Beatles greatest song. There must be quite a few on here who can remember the swinging sixties (there has been posts about Tara Browne in the past) .

Arrived today and, from a quick look thro' looks fascinating for those of a certain age. ;-)

Tara also had a psychedelic Cobra, it turns out, that looks pretty amazing.

Get your bids in quick!

I found the book to be a fascinating read. Apart from the Elan which had the accident, there were several others in the short life of Tara Browne. He also had a couple of AC Cobras.

They certainly were different times.
