I was going to say it must be British Benz since they also drive on the wrong side of the road. ;-)

Colour matched lower cladding was an option in 1991, as I understand it.

I've got brochures from 1991 and the W126's have a single paint colour.

The trim may have been painted to match by a previous owner. I had the cladding, bumpers, mirror backs and door handles painted the same as the body when I had my '91 SEC repainted. It's very common for owners to have this done.

Makes one question the quality of the "excellent" repaint. Earl Scheib, MAACO?? wonder what else was put on incorrectly by the body shop monkeys.

Seriously, why the worry over tags? I can go to the mall any time I want and pull 100 plate and VIN #s.

Oh, and the problem with the pic is that red is a bad color for these cars.

Also, I bought a 13amp, 18" electric chainsaw from Sears and it rocks. I'm going to stick a Barry Taylor AMG badge on it and black out the warning stickers. There are some silly resistor things on the motor, and those are coming off real soon. When I'm done with it it should sound even better than bondavi's sweet ride (you know, the one that sounds real good).

Look at what I bought for my car:

Roadmaster RLPF200 Led Flaming Frame

and yes, it lights up. I bought mine from walmart for $19.95. It should go well with my 'MANROD' plate. I hope that pisses someone off. I also hope I'm not dragged out of my car at a stoplight while listening to disco and beaten over it.

Where do we buy BenzWorld.org stickers?

I met this guy on the street and he did a complete repaint (Horrible Job!) and put the badge on the right. When I pointed it out to him, he said he did it on purpose. I asked why. He liked it better on that side... OOOOooookkaaaaaayyyyyyy.....
