Long shot -
Every once in a while, I would say once every couple of weeks, I spot an E500E rolling around these roads in the wild. Yesterday at around 6pm on Post St in Japan town, I saw a beautiful smoke silver example, clearly well taken care of, with some beautiful looking aftermarket wheels (they had quite a lip to them as well) with some very aggressive looking tread pattern on the tires .... meaning not much in the way of longitudinal grooves for evacuating water. The license plate started with a “4,” indicating that it has been in CA for at least 15 years or so. Anyone familiar with this one?
