60th Anniversary of the W113
« on: August 31, 2022, 23:54:05 »
Wondering what events are being planned next year for the 60th anniversary.  I’m in California and am in the initial stages of planning a get together in Carmel during Monterey car week next August, with a drive to Big Sur along Highway 1.  Hopefully some of you can join me.

That sounds like a fun trip. I’m sure there’s a couple of Cal members who’d help you out with planning/organising. We sort of had a rhythm going of “even” years, Europe did an event, and “odd” years was a US based get together: PUB etc, but that got thrown off a bit by the pandemic.

I know in Europe there’s a 60th get together with the German clubs - as we did in Willingen in 2013 - but that’s all I know of.

I understand that the German Pagoda group (Mercedes-Benz SL Club Pagode eV), who hold an annual rally throughout Germany will hold next year's event in Nuremberg.  I've not yet been to one of their events so as next year is the Pagoda's 60th I hope to drive over to Germany for this rally.

I guess Pagoda Fest Chicago 2023 can be counted as a 60th anniversary event.
