what did you own before the w208?

maybe this thread was done b4, but i was a bit curious of what did you own b4 owning a w208???

- full riced out 1990 nissan cefiro (nissan laurel altima in the middle east) (too embarrassed to show pics, actually i dont have any digital pics of it lol)
- full custom w202 c230 1997
- nicely modded w208 clk320 1997 with full custom interior
- 1 month ownership of a 2000 e320 4matic (now its 4 dad) couldn't stand the 4matic
- now my clk430, no heavy investment in show this time all go hopefully...

the first time i drove a benz, i stopped believing that there is any other car manufacturers

'99 CLK430
In reverse order,
-1998 Linc Mk VIII - still have it.
-1994 Corvette
-1989 Linc Mk VII - heavily modified, A4 347 stroker with ATI ProCharger, Jasper full race AOD trans, 4.11 posi by Motorsport......daily driver for years that would dust just about anything that crossed it's path.
-1989 Corvette
-1988 Crown Vic Police Interceptor / Unmarked State Trooper version
-1985 Buick GN
-1973 LeMans Cam Am 400
-1968 Firebird - 400 ram air III, 4 spd

and my very first car was the unsung hero of 1966.

-1966 Buick Skylark GS, while other GM's, Fords and Mopars filled the pages of every tabloid the Skylark model quitely went from granny-mobile to full on Muscle car status of Gran Sport. Though not the first year for the GS it became the first feared by others.

this is not my car but is an exact match to the one I had.

2000 CLK 3.2
I had a 1998 Cobra with:

Vortech Centrifugal Blower kit w/ after cooler
3:73 gears
Koni Suspension
Baer Breaks
Borla Exhaust
Shorty X-pipe with Hi-flow Catalytic Converters
Hooker Headers
RAM Clutch and Flywheel
high flow water pump
2 Core Aluminum Radiator with Electric Fans
65mm Throttle Body
Ford Motorcraft 160o Thermostat
Granatelli Motor Sports Sub-frame Connectors

The car was super quick and modding it was so inexpensive.
