John S over here has a nice white one with 110k's.ill check again the logs, i reckon this sort of purchase requires a request to buy rather than someone selling!

There's a lovely silver car in NSW with 105,000 documented kms on it, but not for sale. Better still, I found a spectacular metallic blue/cream car near me with 43,000kms on it, one owner. I saw the car, offered $65,000 on the spot, the owner ummed and arrgged but declined, however he promised to keep me in mind if he sells (What ever that means). I'll just annoy him ever few months and hopefully wear him down. Since a similar house across the road from his house sold for $11 million a few weeks back, I'm not sure the value of the 6.9 would make much difference to him.Funny, despite the initial run up in prices in 2014, 6.3s are still good value here despite the prices in Europe and the UK. A few have been languishing on car sales all year. Maybe I'll have a stab at one of those instead.In any case, I'm really happy with the Bentley, it's almost impossible to find a decent 1980s Spirit or Mulsanne for the same reasons a 6.9 is hard to find. There are so few good ones around now.
Quote from: Beastie on 23 July 2016, 10:44 PMNice Bentley. Congratulations. I've been lusting after the Rolls/Bentley cars of that era for a little while now. A local property developer, George Polites, is currently trying to sell a portion of his collection of Rolls Royce cars. Some of them very bespoke and low mileage but most of them are drop tops. Get a load of this Silver Shadow II: Hnnnng, as the kids today say: http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Rolls-Royce-Silver-Shadow-1980/SSE-AD-3651816/?Cr=3His Silver Spirit caught my eye. http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Rolls-Royce-Silver-Spirit-1995/SSE-AD-2526362/?Cr=4It looks like a lot of his car have sold. I can only see half a dozen or so of his ads today. I doubt that that many of them in that kind of condition are seen for sale all at one time very often.
