No birds

This is a car hire place on the Champs Elysees of Sydney - William Street. It is called 'No Birds' because ... I know I can google it but I'd rather make it up ... choose one reason below:
a) it does not use girls to advertise its products
b) no birds were harmed due to its car rental business
c) it is unlike 'Avis' which has an avian name
d) it is an unusual name which is easy to remember


  1. Ahha ... see this cock-eyed shot? Tomorrow is a special Theme Day for CDPBers as it is the 5th anniversary of the group started by Eric Tenin of Paris CDPB. We are encouraged to post in homage of Eric by mimicing his style which is often cock-eyed like this or from the ground up.

    I can see a superficial resemblance between the CE and William Street ... but would not speak it too loudly!!

    The real reason for the name is that coming from KX they don't include a free female with the rental contract!

  2. It's certainly a catchy name, so I suspect it is 'C'. Great shot, though!

  3. Julie
    I just remember Clover Moore planning to make William St the Champs Elysees of Sydney, I don't think it is quite there.
    good guess, but no million dollar prize.

  4. e) because they only hire ugly blokes behind the counters.
    For years, I thought that might be the case. But then someone spoilt it when they told me it was because you must pick the cars up yourself and not have a delivery girl bring the car to you.
