One for the grown-ups...a request for a certain picture
« on: December 23, 2013, 15:07:44 »
All this chat about The pagodentreff 2014 calendar; I think it has some good pics in it, and in my view some quite mundane ones. I'm going to put together - at some point - a 20?? calendar of what in my view are the all time great pagoda pics (its just for me, so what the hell...). 

Anyway, one of the most memorable 113 shots I have seen is probably a 60s/70s shot of the interior of the car with a pretty young under-clad-in-the-nether-regions lass climbing out of a car and revealing more than a chap might hope for. (if by now you don't know what I mean, you haven't seen the photo and so can't help). Anyway, my question is, where is that photo? I know it's on the site but despite searching high and low I cannot find it. 

Any pointers gratefully received. And an early Christmas pressie for those who haven't seen it!

Thanks.

I know the one James and think I saved it or sent it somewhere! I'm back to work on Friday so will try and find it

Neil,

Thanks!  I've received a few pics by email. I can post a selection of the best.

Looking forward to seeing the pic.

Best,

James

Thanks, Neil, indeed it is. A lovely shot of her instrument cluster.

I think this is a fantastic picture. I wonder what it's genesis might be or when it was taken. Do you know any more about it?

Niel,

I have a close one for James he can use in his calendar (I can only show a section of the pic here ... I don't want to get folks angry at this dirty old man here) ~grin~

James, I will e-mail you the complete picture, sorry it's a 190 SL I think, still a nice one (bet we can find some 300 SL pictures as well). Anyway, if you do generate a calender put me down as a customer, heck we can still look can we now ~smile~

Here's a less flamboyant one. Anyone recognise the two people and the context?

Re those other pictures, apparently if you look really hard there is a 190SL not a Pagoda ???

Larry for the win! Good spotting. If there is a better picture of Audrey and the Pagoda from that movie, it would make for a civilized calendar cover ...

And you can't forget the beauty in the topic entitled:  "Pagoda in Viva magazine Polish September edition".

I'd send a link but I don't know how.

She was a real stunner.

Gentlemen
This is the hottest topic of the last days. If we continue this way, not only will we break the record of posts about one topic per day, but we also would get the label of the most chauvinistic forums ;D ;D ;D

BTW:
1. most pictures are really artistic and there is nothing to complain about, I must admit
2. By posting his collection, Artur doubled the number of his posts. Congrats :D

May I repost one pic that I have already put elsewhere on the forum. I hope it makes its way to the calendar...
