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.

"I'm just trying to figure out the best way to pay for it..."
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.

Nice series, for sure! Hey, where's the fourth one?!
I should have done that with all the various rigs I've had during my tenure with the '69 Econoline, but the problem is that none of them were newer versions of itself, so what's the point? I do have a fun one from when we were first building the house. The year was 2002, but the vehicles in the photo were all from the 1960s, so who's gonna know?
