1985 Mercedes 300D license plate

When I bought the 300D in late 1992, I received one of the last sets of blue license plates my state issued before switching over to the current yellow-over-white reflective style. I always enjoyed the vintage look of the blue plates and left them on the car until this year. This year, I finally removed the plates I’ve had all this time in lieu of Historic registration tags.
