NOTE *** The "Back Issue" being mailed out now with our welcoming package to New Members will be replaced in early 2023, with our new "One Page Information flyer about our site"

Hi, Jerry, Joe, Fred and Graig,

Full Members have complete access to our truly International site. Our most senior and long time members have put this site together and as time passes by we try to improve it to ensure that it remains  one of the top car sites/forums on the Internet.

Like Joe for example, Joe is looking for a 280 SL to purchase. We have one area on our site in our Technical Manual that provides detail guide lines when looking for a pagoda to purchase, what to check and look for. No need to mention how much grief and money one can save following this guide lines, Check out the area here….

———> https://www.sl113.org/wiki/Buying/PrepurchaseEvaluation

When one posts his intention to purchase a Pagoda one can expect help from our membership as you can follow up in this thread here …..

Brett and Jean-Luc Welcome!

Now that you have taken out Full Membership you have complete access to our truly International site. Explore our Events area

===> https://www.sl113.org/forums/index.php?board=7.0

Pagoda owners organize car and coffee events in this forum section. If you do go to one of the events take along a few information cards (see attachment print a page and cut the cards). Peter van Es one of our former Presidents prepared this and I find it very handy to have it available for hand out in my clove box. Please refer to the attached carcards.pdf file.

If you just joined this site as a Full Member and are reading this post we like to welcome you to our truly international Pagoda SL Group forum site. You may already know that we have members from all around the world on this site. Some of those members are very active others are not so much..

One of my posts above in this thread provides pointers how to check if there are other members near where you live. It is something you might like to explore. The Membership data base is completely sortable by every heading description. If you like to make contact with members in or near your area

Go to the “Main Forum Page” then click on …

Members> Membership list> Location;

Once you click on Location this will sort for you the entire membership by “Location” All you need to do now is page down until you come your area (On my iMac that be Page 28  and so on for US Members and Page 1 to 27 for International  Members). You will find this to be very handy.

For example you can PM (Private Message by clicking on his/her small mail envelope) a member near you or even in the neighbouring state/country to find out where and when folks meet for cars & coffee, or what shop they use for maintenance work or were events will take place etc. etc.

I post to each New Full Member a welcoming e-mail it contains various links that are meant to give a New Full Member a helping hand to to find his/her way around the site at the start. Our site is basically easy to maneuver, however, some of us need a helping hand here and then. Make use of the Search function also, you will be amassed what you find, it might just be what you are looking for.

With your Full Membership you now have complete access to our truly International site. Explore your new found site and have fun! A welcoming package will also be posted to you shortly.

See you in the forum,

Rolf-Dieter
