Classic Vintage Antique Collector Cadillac/Mercedes-Benz and Others

JIM HAILEY’S CLASSIC CAR COLLECTION

Below are pictures of our current collector automobiles as well as some of the past cars we have owned and/or restored. My grandfather and father were into cars so I naturally progressed into what you see below.
I love all type of cars and brands.  To me they are all a new experience and learning curve.  I grew up desiring traditional American luxury but I gravitated toward performance.  
You can reach me at the email following this paragraph or text me.  Please scroll down mightily for some of the past cars; current cars are typically shown in chronological order.

The C140 coup√©s were really the product of a 1980s arms race between¬†BMW¬†and¬†Mercedes. Work on the design began in the mid-‚Äô80s, with a supposed release date of 1987.¬† This generation of S-Class is alleged to have cost $1billion in development; the production delays are said to have cost DBAG‚Äôs chief engineer his job. Some 45lbs lighter and 3.8 inches shorter than the four-door S-Class, the C140 coup√©s made their debut at the Detroit Auto Show in 1992. The choice of an American show to launch the C140 reflects that nation‚Äôs appetite for big, luxurious two-door cars (look how big our cars and trucks are now).¬† The 600, with its proud ‚ÄėV12‚Äô C pillar badges, was significant in that it was Mercedes‚Äô first production 12-cylinder model in DBAG‚Äôs history.¬† ¬†It was also the fastest four-seater production car in the world at the time; with its 48-valve, four-camshaft (with adjustable inlet technology) engine.¬† Originally rated at 408 hp it was detuned to 394 to pass emissions.¬† It was the first Benz with side air bags.¬†¬†
