Wow, Check out the buy it now price of this VP license plate frame on Ebay.

I have taken my VP license plate off my tii and I'll only put it on for 02 shows. I have other CA dealership frames I use for daily use. I use to have an Ocean Motors frame in Santa Monica but it cracked while I was cleaning it. That was the original BMW dealership in Santa Monica before it became BMW of Santa Monica.

Anyone out there have a Peter Pan BMW (metal) they could part with? I've been watching via eBay search for over a year with no luck. Tried to get by there during OFest, but flight delays put us in San Mateo at about 10pm!

Vasek Polak always seems to command the highest premiums, but several of the west coast dealers are consistently over $100.

And the Porsche/Audi frames are worth much less. The early Porsche guys want the Manhattan Beach frame more than the Redondo Beach frame but even one of these goes for big bucks. Early BMW frames also said MB and were red but in 70 or so he moved across the street to Hermosa Beach which are the ones you see today. He used these frames up through mid 90s on e34s.

VP had a black plastic BMW Hermosa Beach license plate frame as well,  I had that frame on my daughters E30 that she had while going to school at UC Berkeley.  She took her car into a local independent Berkeley BMW shop that was referred by members of the R3V forum and while it was be serviced, they took off her VP frame and tossed it in trash and put their own shop license plate frame on her car without asking her permission. Several years later, I'm still waiting on them to deliver me another VP frame but I won't hold my breath that I'll ever see it.

Here's the history of this frame as told by the seller:

 

"Used license plate holder, taken from  my 2002 BMW in 1978, after it was totalled. Just found it buried in my storage....Chrome plated and all original, metal.  Says on back: Robert W. Brown & Co. Inc, Downey, CALIF."

 

I hope it isn't jinxed?
