108 posts? PUB stands for Pagoda University Blacklick. Blacklick, Ohio is where the biennial gathering of Pagoda enthusiasts gathered for a weekend of drooling, commiserating and education related to the W113. This past September it was held in Virginia but keeps the same name in honor of its original host Joe Alexander. Joe hosted the event on his property in Blacklick, Ohio (just outside of Columbus) from (I think) 2003 to 2015. Something to consider attending in 2019.

I did see the acronym a fair few times and even made a search on it but did not want to look like a complete idiot since it seemed so obvious to everyone...  :) Also bear in mind that i am UK based, so it was even less obvious!

Now I know! thank you ;D
