The heads-up is appreciated and is also a way for you to trend mailing issues (if any)

I received mine yesterday here in metro Atlanta, GA. I want to underscore the comments made thus far - another fantastic issue! I especially liked the article The Trip of a Lifetime by Keith Henry.  Great story and a beautiful 280SL!

Taleb, first you need to join as a full member. Two issues per year of Pagoda World are included in membership. We send these all over the world, so it would show up via the local mail system.

I suggest you recheck your address Taleb. It does not make much sense to me....
1970 280SL. Please do not mail or PM me questions on Pagoda's... I'm not likely to know the answer.  Please post on the forum instead!

Arrived in the UK today, we have had some postal strikes, which has caused delays

Had a quick flick through, some fantastic articles and pictures, many thanks to everyone involved

Believe it or not i actually live next door to the Maldon Salt MD, and their factory is just a few minutes down the road.  No discounts for us though, have to pay full price at the shop!

I must have missed the memo saying all cars featured in Pagoda World had to be white. ;)

Lovely stories, thanks all

“Car sits in garage not getting enough use” may not be the most interesting…

I'm as happy as I can be for "Babes" to be featured in PW31. (Jonny and our contractor did a great job.) At the same time, the comment about the issue being only about white cars is funny but true. I can't tell you how many times, when proudly handing the issue to interested family and friends, I had to explain that, "No, that's not my car on the cover." Ha!

Car sits in the garage not getting enough use, but has plenty of companions with whom to swap road trip stories.
