Rather than posting pics of your favorite ride in random threads put them up here for everyone to enjoy or just as an archive for reference.. Even interesting cars you have seen in passing, post 'em up.

Love that car! I know it's not strictly Bavarian with those headlights but I actually prefer those to the Euro ones.

Thanks!

I had a set of Euro headlights on a W108. Even with repeated reflectors they sucked.

Looked nice, but you were outdriving them by 30 mph.

I prefer the sealed beams myself, too.

Very nice and a great colour. That would have been a good drive too.

That's one of those "you can't get there from here" trips, or so it appears.

Beautiful car.
