I am interested in attending with my 67 230 SL. Any chance to get a ticket?  I will tow my car from Seattle.

We are now very pleased to announce that we expect MB Classic Center's Tom Hanson to attend!

Tom is one of the Classic Center's 'parts go to guys'.  Ever helpful and just a nice guy.

Please take the time to meet him and say hello.

Additionally he will be participating in our Friday afternoon panel discussion.

I am curious to know what a sponsor of the event gets in return for sponsoring. I spoke to John at German Auto Tops (a Sponsor) and he almost forgot about the event.

LAST CALL!!!!

We currently have up to 4 single tickets available that you can purchase on the website. First come first serve.

If you want a couples ticket for $550, please purchase two single tickets and we will refund you the $200.  This is a limitation of our website and only 5 days to go before PagodaFest.
We suggest that you buy them immediately if you want to attend. 

https://www.pagodafest.com/events/pagodafest-san-diego-2019

Please note that the tickets are not refundable.

Good luck and see you at PagodaFest.  ;D

Update!!!!!


2 tickets were just nabbed by a lucky couple 👍👍👍


2 tickets are left.  Remember. If you buy them both as a couple we will refund you the $200 so you will be only paying $550 like a normal couples ticket.

Maybe we should have a prize for the last lucky ticket buyer🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Jon,

Do you happen to have a current participant's list available for us who attends?

The old one is from June - totally outdated. ;)

Would be great - gladly by email or PN. Just to know who is around (and not to miss)

Thanks a lot & all best

Errata.

Ed Hill (49er) and his wife were a last minute cancellation and were accidentally left on the list and will not be attending.

 Thanks to all for posting photos. What an event it must have been! What was the final tally of all the pagodas that were there?
