Welcome indeed. You have a perfectly beautiful car. It must get attention every time you take it out, I'm sure.

Lovely car remember those in Germany in the 60's & 70's. Why is it still on a German Zoll export registration plate, or Tag as you call them?

Front plate is optional in CA, if I'm not mistaken :)

they will cite you if you don't have one but so far so good
I keep the actual front plate in the car and post on the dash if I am parked in public.

They really are. I just love the design and the body lines
The plate was from my w113 - more of a touch than function
Very comfortable, enough power, oozes with wood, leather, and elegance and lots of class.
I think last of the hand built models.
I drive it as much as I can on weekdays and weekends.

I'm not sure whether you should park it in the garage or an art gallery..

I think an Art gallery, it is just so beautiful. Makes me go weak at the knees :)

Ah, right - I had a place in Fort Lauderdale, FL and as any [semi] native Floridian just assumed that, everywhere else is the same LOL
