I finished my 6th Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure this weekend! I want to thank Atlanta Classic Cars, my donors and my team for making it possible for me to walk in this important event. We are making progress in treatment, diagnosis and getting ever closer to the cure for this disease.
I will now be posting pictures and videos from around the dealership on Instagram! Please follow me and tag me on any of your Mercedes-Benz or Atlanta Classic Cars photos. I am @benzblogger and the dealership is @atlclassiccars.
Don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging! I am just adding to the experience.
Who doesn’t like to spend 33 hours in the car over a holiday weekend? Again, we were pulling a trailer through the mountains…The Sprinter normally gets better fuel economy! Anyone else have a great trip odometer to share?
For the last 6 years I have participated in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure! This is a 60 mile walk around the streets of Atlanta with thousands of other participants. Since 2008 my team, the Ribbon Ladies, has raised over $140,000!
The 5k for the 3-Day is a 5k race at the local park that I created to support our fundraising for the 3-Day walk. Atlanta Classic Cars is the presenting sponsor and makes it possible for 100% of the proceeds to go to the 3-Day for the Cure.
If you live in the Atlanta Area please register and come out and run or walk with us this Saturday! The race starts at 9am. You can register online here as a runner or if you you can’t attend but would like a shirt, as a “ghost runner.”
If you would like to support my fundraising for the 3-Day walk there is a link on the left on this page that will take you to my fundraising site to donate directly! Thanks in advance!
I attended the Caffeine & Octane Car Show this weekend in Alpharetta and it was amazing! I have been going to car shows my whole life and I don’t think I have ever seen such a variety of vehicles. The metro Atlanta Mercedes-Benz delaerships are sponsoring the series this summer and will have vehicles and staff at every show. It is the first Sunday of every month and you need to get there early! By 7am the parking lot was nearly full!
As you can see I brought the 2014 E350, Nash Solanki, our accessories manager, brought a pre-owned 2012 CLS63 AMG and we made friends with the owner of this stunning classic Mercedes-Benz. I think it dressed up our area nicely!
Come say hello if you make it out next month!
This weekend I hit the road in my 2012 Sprinter 3500! We put in over 2100 miles visiting family in Pennsylvania, attending a SprinterFest East and making a quick trip to New Jersey. We towed a pretty heavy trailer the whole way and spent some time sitting in traffic. I think 12 mpg overall isn’t too bad!
Special thanks to Sun Motor Cars for hosting all of these Sprinters!
Thank you to my co-workers for making Atlanta Classic Cars a wonderful place to work!
Thank you to Mercedes-Benz for making the best vehicle in the world!
Thank you to my clients for helping me get to the 10-year mark!
Now, on to the next decade!
“Vehicles purchased on or after March 1, 2013 and titled in this state will be exempt from sales and use tax and the annual ad valorem tax. Instead, these vehicles will be subject to a new, one-time title ad valorem tax that is based on the value of the vehicle.
In addition, if you purchase and title a vehicle in Georgia between January 1, 2012 and March 1, 2013, you may be eligible to opt-in to the new title ad valorem tax.”
From the Georgia Department of Revenue website that features a Title Ad Velorum Tax Calculator.
From what we understand this law is still being tweeked by the state legislature and some changes may be made. Contact your county tag office with additional questions!
The State of Georgia has lots of choices for your license plates – you can see all of them at the Department of Revenue site. However, if you do not want to pay for a specialty tag you still have two choices.
The Standard Tag
and the Standard Alternate Tag
Make sure to specify! In my experience people have pretty strong feelings about the Standard Tag and might prefer the single peach on the Standard Alternate Tag!
