Today was the first time I have seen another Pagoda on the road in the Niagara Peninsula in the 11 years I have had mine.  Spotted going in the opposite direction so pulled into an MB dealership to turn around (coincidence I think not) and proceeded to track the driver down.  Gentleman by the name of Wilhelm in a dark blue '66 230SL with a red interior.   He belongs to the German Pagode site and gave him details for ours.  He took a picture of my Pagoda card and hopefully he will look us up and become a member.  Also hope he can join our get together next month here in Niagara.

Hi Marcus,

That is amaising, did you give him some information about our get together. His name was not Bill Vomvolakis from the Blue Mountain area? Do you have his name?

I just finished our name tags for our Niagara event and would make one for him if he plans to join us.

Stay safe!

Yes, I got his contact info and e-mailed him a copy of the pdf you sent out previously.  Hopefully he can join us.  And his name is Wilm, not Wilhelm.

There's another car in St. Catherines but it's at my place right now awaiting a paint job. It won't be at our event but I think the owner Simon will be.

Wow, they are falling out of the wood work.  Looking forward to meeting up again next month Dan.  Is Shelley going to attend?

No, just me.  I'll be leaving on Friday night and will stay at Niagara on the Lake for two nights.
