Having the dealership license plate frame from which your car was purchased is a big deal. People pay big money for these pot metal frames they gave away back in the day. I’ve heard of people paying $700 for a Vasek Polak frame. $700 people. For a license plate frame. Seriously?
I’ve had this one hanging in the garage for a few years. Walnut Creek is the closest town to me with a Porsche dealership. A lady at work with a mid-eighties Mercedes kindly gave it to me. I just had to trade her a blank frame. Now I am never going to fool any of the locals that this frame is from ’68. I could fool people outside the Bay Area. Maybe. Probably not. I could justify the license plate on my car by explaining that it was a trade in during the mid-eighties. Regardless…it didn’t cost me $700. Serious.
If anyone can help me come up with a better lie then please chime in. If it’s a good lie then I will install it. 😉
