Time to put this thread to bed, as it's getting extremely unwieldy and way off topic.

RE: After 10+ years, I have my 500 GE.

Gents,

Let's keep this thread on topic. I apologize for my digressions.

Some new pictures:

The 500 GE "Accessories" frame. As described earlier, the 500 GE, upon signing the original sales contract at the dealer, was presented with a silver artist's engraving of the vehicle numbered in sequence with the limited edition production. I have the original artist's engraving and frame.

The 500 GE was also presented with a sterling silver tie pin, which Harald so kindly provided me with.

I ordered a matching black anodized aluminum frame from Germany, the same as what was used to frame the original artist's engraving, and had my archival expert frame the tie pin with suede/velvet tie pin pouch along with a picture of the factory demo 500 GE, and a Mercedes pin.

Both frames match and will look great together. The original framed artist's engraving and the "accessories" frame.

Here is the "Accessories" frame. I will include another photo of the silver artist's engraving probably tomorrow.

Framed "en suite"...the original silver artist's engraving numbered to my 500 GE along with the "Accessories" frame with sterling silver tie pin suede/velour pouch, and Mercedes star lapel pin.

Just prior to hanging.

Brabus G36: Thanks for that. But I have 4 already.

I am preparing a post regarding 500 GE Literature.

The intent is that this will serve as a centralized "500 GE" thread for other owners/potential owners in other parts of the world.

You should send me the Vin code. With a little bit of luck, perhaps I can locate the original purchaser.
