Polish Pagoda Chapter first club appearance in 2015
« on: April 26, 2015, 22:18:34 »
Six of our members participated in Moto Sfera Classic 2015 show (24 and 26 April in Warsaw). This was our firs club outing and we were quite pleased that, among some 100 cars exposed, our Pagodas represented the only homogenous group. This event was quite entertaining: besides the static presentation it also included a vintage fashion show (mostly 20s), a short musical with old-timer car motifs and many more things that it would take too long to write about.

Below are a few pictures of our cars.

1. The Pagoda squad starts here: Artur's green one, followed by the car of yours truly. My Pagoda was exposed from the "rear end", as we put a screen to show the videos of our rallies and gatherings (the links of most of which were posted elsewhere on this forum);
2. This one shows that my car, besides the handsome rear end, has also a pretty face...  
3. Our other Pagodas: the first belongs to Andrzej250 and the second to Aligator;
4. The most catching Pagoda, judging by the number of young persons (strangely mostly of feminine genre...) was the blue one (one of them called it the cloudless sky Pagoda :)) Artur took pictures evidencing that fact. Would you guess what paint code is it?

BTW
I am urging Artur to post the pictures he took showing how popular was his other car he brought to the show (a freshly restored W111 white convertible)

And here are some pictures showing other cars.

1. on the far right you can see Artur's white W111 (before it was taken by the crowd shown in my third post, and even better in the pics that Artur will hopefully add). BTW, Artur Alligator stand just behind the W111;
2 and 3: the most venerable participants;
4. Pleasant way of serving snacks and refreshments...

It looks like a "metallic" paint, so my first pick is: 396G and second choice: 387H.

Alfred,

Close, but keep trying ;)


Artur
A statement correct for this website should be: W111 seems to be attractive for young persons where they happen to be girls

BTW: since thee is only one Beauty, the blue one, I wonder who is the Beast ???

Alfred,
in fact this is a non-standard paint that was used for Suzukis for ex. While definitely not original, we noticed that it works like as eye-trap on most young (or less so) ladies. ;D

Hi Naj,

He posted this some time ago to show off the 16" CLK wheels.

I think that the one I posted is more intense if that can mean anything.

Other comments:
- those wheels look out of my liking range ;).
- too bad that in the renovation process they decided to put that hideous side marker (not speaking that they are in wrong place).

Together with parchment upholstery it attract viewers like flies with honey...
