That is another very cool series of pictures.
No pics of my cars going back to when I was 18....

So what's stopping you from pulling the trigger on the Abarth?
I'm just trying to figure out the best way to pay for it- plus, I want to file my taxes to see if I owe anything...

All great pics and neat that you have these photos. You should hold onto the old fintail as long as feasible, such a great car.

PenFed has a 1.49% 60 month loan (anyone can join) and Park Federal Credit Union in Louisville will do 1.99%. There's just not a huge incentive to pay cash anymore.

It's a good old car - has a million needs, but like Mr. Burns, they all kind of cancel each other out, and it keeps running. I have no logical reason to keep it, but I am sentimental and I like driving it.

My family documented few of our cars over the years, so I didn't want to make that same mistake. I also only buy something if I really like it, so I am proud and take pics.

That S Class looks nice and clean, euro bumpers (I think), good color, clear corner lenses. I bet your new E is even bigger than your old S Class if parked side by side.

That W126 was pretty gorgeous, I loved the color. NA bumpers but Euro lights - I now feel kind of dumb about those corners, but at the time (10+ years ago), they seemed to make the car look fresh. I agree, the new car is about the same size and probably weight too. Everything has moved up a size, which might make sense as to why we are getting the CLA.

CLA looks decent but with Front Wheel Drive it's a bit of a turnoff for me. I bet for the same money you could pick up a nice used CLS, probably AMG package too.

I am not sold on small cars with trunks - if they are too small, they just look weird. If we had a normal A-class hatch, I would find it more attractive. A250 diesel could be a hoot.
