My car's twin

Today David and Al A. came over in David's 300SEL, which is silver just like my 280SEL. We drove each others cars and talked a lot. It was great to put faces to the names on the forum!
I attached a pic of the two cars.

Nice.

Is yours the car on the right?

What kind of low beams does that car have?

Yes, mine is the car on the right. It has H4 low beams and H1 high beams. The previous owner installed them, along with reel type seat belts front and rear.

It was good meeting with you. Your 280SEL is beautiful as is your Fiat Spyder. Let us know how it works out with the new computer in place.

That's quite a sight. Both of those cars are GORGEOUS. I like the fact that they are parked in the "No Parking" red zone.

I'm guessing between 1971 and 1973.
