Good evening ,

Wasn’t quite sure where to introduce myself ?!

So here we go ...

Recently - 4 weeks ago - acquired my childhood dream
1967 Pagoda 250SL CS

Besides car is a decent condition I had to replace both master and slave cylinder last weekend - clutch is working well now  8)
Thanks to several posts in regard of this issue ...

I put already +600miles on South Houston TX area roads and is just fantastic to drive such nice timeless classic .

Since I got more familiar with that car I noticed misfiring so I replaced spark plugs already and will work my way up to ignition distributor.

Power steering box is next ;)

 Hope to learn more about this car here in this forum

Isn't that a designation for some very nice BMW's ....?

1967 Pagoda 250SL CS

Looked closer at his (single) pic.
Appears to be a California version (code 41/7) with rear seat bench.
Perhaps he is referring to "California Spider" or something related to that ...
