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!

From MBUSA Facebook:
Hurricane Sandy has devastated many of the communities in which we live and work. Many of you have been personally affected by the storm or know people who were. Mercedes-Benz USA today announced a donation of $1,000,000 to the American Red Cross to aid in the relief efforts. While authorities are still assessing the damage and the cost will run into billions of dollars, we wanted to offer some immediate relief and support.
For more information on how to support the American Red Cross please visit: http://www.redcross.org/support/donating-fundraising/donations.
Here I go again! This is my fifth year participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure! This weekend I will be walking 60 miles to raise awareness and funds in the fight against breast cancer.
Thank you to Atlanta Classic Cars, family, friends and clients for your support! I am still a little bit shy of my $2500 fundraising goal…do any of you blog readers have a few dollars to contribute? Every little bit helps! Here is my donation link!
If you see a parade of pink walking through Atlanta this weekend please wave and honk…we love the support!
