What year and history 600? I have always held a warm and fuzzy spot in my heart for those. Very nice collection of Benz's. Not much changed since the SLK days though. Sigh.

Wheels and tires on whitey are not to my liking either, but to each their own, eh?
Do you have pics of the 600?

I accidentally got married, twice. Then accidentally had a kid, four times.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

It is a 1972. Number 2137 which makes it one of the last few of the U.S. modeled 600s. They were officially discontinued in the U.S. that year.

Here is a video you may enjoy. (It contains both a W221 and W100, not to mention a great cover of an 80's song.) Can't wait to see and hear more of the 7.4. I love unique MBs.
