Down Under, Part 1

Combi vans, Vegemite sandwiches and beer...
All symbols of Australia that Men At Work sang about in "Down Under" their international hit single:
In January 1983 it was Number One in the British charts and I remember it well.
Those lyrics may even have encouraged me to spend 7 months "Down Under" almost 10-years later.
And as I travelled the country I also experienced Combi vans, Vegemite sandwiches and slabs of VB, Tooheys & Castlemaine.
I also enjoyed many amazing sights...
Including Sydney's Opera House & Harbour Bridge:

Katherine Gorge:


And the Pinnacles Desert:
Those photos aren't mine...they're random web finds. 
But I did take the following pictures of the Rolls-Royces and Bentleys I saw as I travelled from place to place.
So here is some "Down Under Bentley Spotting" from almost 20 years ago:


New South Wales


This photo was taken at the service depot of York Motors of Sydney, official Rolls-Royce & Bentley distributors at the time:


Notice the "SPIRIT" registration.
And here are some other photos from around the city:
A Silver Cloud III under the Harbour Bridge.... 




This photo of a Silver Spirit II was taken outside of Hamiltons, the then official Rolls-Royce & Bentley distributor for Melbourne:


And these photos were taken at RA McDermott, a Rolls-Royce & Bentley specialist then operating out of Richmond, Melbourne:


I especialy like this T2...

And this lovely Bentley T Coupe was parked outside of Dutton, a classic car specialist:



These photos are from around Melbourne:

Just calling in for a Yarra Thai take out...

I was even lucky enough to catch the Hooper Emperor State Landaulette during its charity tour of Australia:



Western Australia


This Turbo R & Mulsanne S were photographed at Chellingworth Motors, still the official Bentley distributor for Perth:


And this Silver Spirit was parked downtown:

Do any of our Down Under readers recognize or own one of these cars?

Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of ( So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks

I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.
