Bad part about finding how good value is in older Mercedes -Benz is that next time you will have to buy a farm in Montana.
Have a friend who having bigger property in City of Berkeley collected 17 of W126 and W123
The City was giving him several notices that he ignored, till they called towing company that took all the cars away.

None of those BS regulations here
MT actually has a permanent plate option. For about twice the yearly license fee, you can get "permanent plates" on any vehicle eleven years old. It then never needs to be licensed again as long as "you" own it. Needless to say, 6 of the 7 vehicles I drive are older than 11 years. The Duramax will be eligible next year

We've got five year plates here for cars beyond a certain age (no idea what it is), but I rarely make it a full year with a car.

Darn, I like Montana more and more.
The state is famous for decades for having low vehicle taxes and registration fees.
If you wonder why so many luxury motorhomes in California drive with Montana licence plates?
When you buy $400,000 coach in CA, you pay about $38,000 tax -plus the annual registration of about $4,000.
The registration fee will go down over the years, but can you see a motivation to establish Montana corporation, that will own the motorhome driven in CA ?
