Flyair,

If you invite Anna Mucha to your next event in Poland, AND advertise that fact, then I'm sure you'll find people covering great distances in order to attend.

As an afterthought, if you invite Kamil Stoch, my wife might even want to come along...

Sadly impossible to take such a photo with our Pagoda since it hasn't this sign on the front

Peter.
Your leadership is evident at every occasion such as pointing out easy goals to achieve. Now I feel challenged!.  

However, in 2015 we may surprise you ... And your wife too ;)

Stan,  how can Kamil Stoch relax, with the dash pad looking a bit off where it meets the window next to the air vent.    Can't find anything wrong with the Anna pictures.

Kamil is certainly able to relax in any position, knowing that Anna is waiting for him.

However, would that be my Pagoda, gold medalist or actress, I wouldn't care, but would chase them away if they were putting shoes on my shiny chromes :D

As for Anna's pictures, nothing wrong indeed, except maybe that for this thread she is way too much... dressed up IUSWIM ;D

Gentlemen,

(I don't think there are many ladies reading this thread)… I think it is perhaps time to return the "Way Off Topic" topic back to just being off-topic. I know that I have participated and added fuel to the fire by pointing out this thread in a mailing, but I was recently reminded that one of the rules we have on this forum (as listed here: http://www.sl113.org/terms-of-use.html) is not to post obscene, profane, or sexually oriented material. We have these rules for a good reason.

Let's show restraint and keep it tasteful, also in the "Way Off Topic" section.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Peter

I think we have sufficient samples now to start planning on the 2015 and up calendars :)

Any Volunteers to take on the project?

Peter,

From now on, I would expect that we stop referring to our Pagodas as "She" "Her" etc... This may be perceived offending and derogatory by women and even some men.

So a text that says "This Pagoda is beautiful. I like her a lot" should become: "This Pagoda is beautiful. I like him/her a lot"

BTW, I would expect that Garry tracks all the past posts and amends as appropriate.

Thank you

Garry,
I am totally devastated. Have your wife read our "gender-free" rules?

She should consider "Bello" instead...

Sorry Erick, I don't have the resources to put together a calendar. I purchase mine from the German Pagode site (without the ladies of course). I might create a special folder on my computer and switch here and then using the photos as a screen saver ~grin~

I will add another, that would be worty to join the other ladies and Pagoda's in this thread.

don't expect that the view of Pierre Brosnan and the lady would hide the fact that the hubcaps have been censored...what have you done to those unfortunate  hubcaps? :D

Stan,
   
Since this photo was in an add add shoot I must assume the advertise company used photo shop to remove the star. Therefore the photo does not qualify for our intended calendar project. You do have sharp eyes then you are light years younger then yours truly :)

after a thorough examination of this picture one may have noticed that there are several flaws: non-original radio, wrong rear mirror and different color of seats and other upholstery parts, just to mention a few ;D ;D ;D

I believe that photo was the avatar of member "Wolfmann" from a few years ago? And Stan, very observant:-)
