Bentley S1



The Bentley S1 (originally simply "Bentley S") was a luxury car produced by Bentley Motors Limited from 1955 until 1959. The S1 was derived from Rolls-Royce's complete redesign of its standard production car after World War II, the Silver Cloud. Each was its maker's last standard production car with an independent chassis. The S-series Bentley was given the Rolls-Royce - Bentley L Series V8 engine in late 1959 and named the S2. Twin headlamps and a facelift to the front arrived in late 1962, resulting in the S3. In late 1965 the S3 was replaced by the new unitary construction Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow-derived T series.

emmet swimming: "Earplugs 50 Cents" - The Washington Post

 Taped at the 9:30 club in Washington and Alley Katz in Richmond, the Fairfax-bred quartet revisits more than a dozen tunes, infusing many of them with a bar band energy that seldom survived the band's studio efforts. If these shows weren't exactly liberating experiences for the group, they nevertheless come across that way, fueled by now vibrant, now passionate, now colorfully recast versions of "Arlington," "South Bristol, ME," "Jump in the Water," "Sunblock" and other tunes worth reprising. Clearly lead singer Todd Watts, who boasts the band's trademark baritone, viewed these concerts as something more than just a casual stroll down memory lane. That's apparent even when he knows he'll be sharing the vocals with the crowd on the anthemic (and amusingly rearranged) "Arlington."
