2. It has Weber carbs tuned for sunny Southern California climate, instead of Zenith carbs, which are in a box until I find a capable, trustworthy carb shop to bring them back to life. Oversized tires for better cruising gearing (those ugly white wall tires in the pics are gone!). The 4 speed is in great shape. Kenwood with bluetooth replaced the Alpine cassette player that it came with. I have the block-off plate in IMMACULATE condition but the rest of the wood is less than immaculate. I darkened the wood trim a little, a full refurbish is coming soon. I'll put up the block-off (original condition, and immaculate) once I redo the veneer trim and hide the radio in the glove box.

3. All mine! 2nd W108! (RIP Juliana :( )

4. Favorite memory was an odd moment when I was cruising in San Clemente. I didn't expect a lot of tourists midweek, and some kids were hovering the rear of the car on bikes while I was stuck in stop n go traffic. One of the kids came up to my open window, said some good words, and said he loved these cars...impressed that someone so young knew a bit about this oldie. I clearly saw an appreciation for the old, classic European vehicles in his eyes and it made my day. Usually its people my age or older that live these.

5. Please like, subscribe, and hit the bell!

Small update, I got a personalized whales tail California license plates 10 MONTHS after I ordered them. I got it I think a month before moving out of CA :rolleyes: but I plan to keep them on until I die, or I get a fix it ticket (whichever comes first).

Thanks to goofy a$$ east coast classic car registration rules, i dont think keeping my whales tail plates on my ride will be a problem. they're still representin and still my daily driver.
