*Date Change*  Event Now on Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

Please join us for the 12th Annual Mid-Atlantic W113 Gathering at my home in Alexandria, Virginia on Sunday, November 2, 2014. The event starts at noon and continues until 5:00 PM.  Feel free to come anytime during the day.

A number of Pagoda owners come for technical "triage" to address minor ailments, fellowship and good chili. We generally have between 10-15 cars and 20+ owners.

My garage and lift will be available for minor mechanical work. Fellow owners will help other owners with issues they have, show their cars and see some interesting vintage accessories. We will have one car outfitted with a sunroof, a luggage rack and original luggage. Such a combination of original accessories is rare so we hope you can attend.  An original Continental tire with rub stripe will also be on display.

Finally, hot chili and cider will again be the featured menu item.

Please e-mail me (classic280sl@yahoo.com) if you can attend and I will be in touch with details.

Tom, I plan to attend along with my son Christian whom you met in Williamsburg at the P50 event.

Thanks for sponsoring this wonderful gathering.  It will be my second.

Tom,

I may attend as well. Will connect with Hauser if he intends to drive and mini-caravan as we did at the 50th in Williamsburg.

Hi Tom -

I plan to be there again, after missing the last couple of your wonderful "Chili Sundays" because of family commitments.  If damp weather holds off the Pagoda will be topless, because such cars are intended to be enjoyed for as long as possible with the wind in my hair, sun in my eyes and bugs in my teeth!
