BMW was Manhattan Beach..... Porsche was Hermosa.... nothing in Redondo.

Porsche was on the West side of PCH in Hermosa...the East side of PCH (in the same block) is north Redondo... but the Porsche dealership was offically in Hermosa...

I think there are probably several old threads on this subject...

Deferring to local expert on the BMW store location. However, I did buy a new 993 C2S at VPP in Hermosa...

That may be why it says it's a repro in the listing. Just a guess.

Okay, I don't mean to start a debate here, but these are what I will consider facts, I just got off the phone with Carl Thompson. For those of you who don't know Carl, he was "Vasek Polak's Right Hand Man", I'll leave it at that...

The following license plate frame photos I'm posting here are;

1) Originals, NOT reproductions.
2) Sold directly to me by Carl Thompson.
3) There was more than one location, obvious proof by these original frames.
4) It has gotten beyond annoying to continue to read about a "Manhattan Beach" location. WHEN IN FACT THERE WAS NEVER, EVER A "REDONDO BEACH LOCATION". PERIOD, END OF STORY.

The frame with the white background and red letters (2nd photo), that's a beauty and the rarest of them all. It actually took me years to convince Carl to sell me that frame, broken and all...





The Manhattan Beach frame is now being restored, already repaired, see below...















Per Carl Thompson, and I will quote him;

The very first location where Vasek opened shop was;

356 Sepulveda Blvd, Manhattan Beach

There were two other locations;

a) 2901 Pacific Coast Highway, Hermosa Beach
b) 199 Pacific Coast Highway (the old furniture store)

BUT NEVER IN MANHATTAN BEACH...

PS: I will probably start a new thread in this forum just to clarify the "real" Vasek Polak store front locations. Hopefully it will help some...

PSS: My license plate is not for sale.
