RE: Non US citizen buying & driving car in US
I don't blame you with the West Coast car, although I'm sure there are many excellent examples throughout the country. I recently purchased a gray market 450SL that spent most of its life in northern California. The car was completely spotless... undercarriage, suspension components, door sills, trunk, etc... not a spec of rust.
That doesn't mean the rusty ones aren't out there, but with a well-documented car, chances are you'll find a quality. A 60's Pagoda SL would be next on my list!
