DOTS, Excelsior Work Report
Had the lower control arms and steering shaft replaced with OE new parts. Oil change, too. The car is a lot happier, though I think I need to top up the transmission a little bit. Will be checking on that tomorrow when I go to my friend's for a tune-up and the wiring work.
The new pushbar brushguards are certainly drawing a lot of attention, too. A couple drivers gave me the thumbs up in the parking lot.
Meanwhile, have a classic Mercedes caught on my dash camera (rear and front).

@nkato Woah, I've not seen a wagon that I can recall. A few sedans here and there but never a longroof. Nice spot! I wonder if it's USDM. The side repeater curiously mounted on the top of the fender says Euro model to me.
@whoistheleader I'm inclined to agree it's euro as well, or a possible import option from the dealer. I'm not sure if euro plates from that era were the same dimension as U.S. plates.
I mean, look at the indentation on the front bumper - it's for wide format euro plates; while the rear has the light mounts wide enough for US plates, but not for euro plates.

@nkato I think there have been options for two row Euro plates for a while whereas the front takes the single row kind.
But I'm honestly not sure. It seems odd for the rear not to accommodate the more standard size.

Interesting, Googled a bit... If not imported, apparently required special order from the dealer in the US.
There were also barn doors and a different hatch available.
