alas, not mine.... belongs to Wayne (beard & cap), my next door "shop neighbor".

The guy on the other side on my shop is working on his "always-wanted-one" project... a '51 "Baby Lincoln".

Not it, reference only

It's been chopped and sectioned to the point that the windshield is maybe 12" high. I'm surrounded by guys that aren't afraid to use cutting torches Image

I'm staying up near Bodega Bay for a long weekend
(at this amazing place: http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/25230 )

and it is pretty rural up here, though that has resulted in some cool spottings:

Man, you make me want to move back to Europe. I was considering bringing a car back with me to Canada, but never really looked into it. The 3.0csi is one of my faces and the Benz is almost exactly like my old one. Same color too "grey-beige". Had a funny German name I recall.

Thanks. Made my day.

Yup.

157 beige grey (beigegrau) it was.

Such a straightforward way to describe the color. I always thought it was very Teutonic. If it was a us car they would call
It some stupid marketing bs name like "cashmere dawn". :)

Whoah. I must admit, I doubted your ability to spot the colour right on
a moving car under a dawning sky. But this one was "Beigegrau", indeed.
*
http://www.classicway.de/w111-und-w112- ... tallic.htm
* (for comparison)

It looked goldish brown in the sun, but grey-ish and much flatter in the shade.
Unusual complex mixture for the time, when mica was not invented, as far as I now. I'd have
betted it was called "gold" in some way, but the didn't

I didn't get it as perfect as you thought then, it is was indeed metallic. I thought it was the non-metallic Beige Grey (157 beige grey not 728), which is what my car was. I actually prefer non-metallics.

I occasionally run across this car during my commute through the city, as we share the same route for a few streets. It always grabs my attention when I see it and I haven't had a chance to take a good pic of it while driving. This is the car but not my pic:

The owner, Albert Boasberg, tells a nice story on the car here:

He also has a second Rover (dark blue) that I occasionally see as well:
