I like to extend a Welcome to all Associated Members that have joined our Pagoda SL Group.

Hello, My name is Rolf-Dieter (Dieter), I joined the Pagoda SL Group in 2013 after I was an Associate Member for about a month, then became a Full Member when I realized what a great International group this is. We have Members from all around the world. Check out the Full Member group and you will agree what a truly International Group this is.

Check the Full Member Listing here ——> https://www.sl113.org/forums/index.php?topic=23684.0

For the past four years or so I made a list of Full Members (see the link above) and I was thinking it is not fair to leave the Associate Members behind. Many of you do eventually join our Group as Full Members once you do realize the additional Benefits you do gain once you become a Full Member of our Group.

You can compare the difference between Full and Associate Membership in the link below;

Compare Benefits Here ——> https://www.sl113.org/wiki/About/Membership

You might ask yourself why is Dieter spending his time here and doing this? Well the answer is simple, I am a car nut and retired I simply like to keep busy. This site has helped me with my 280SL Pagoda and I like you to have the same opportunity not only by gaining knowledge about your car. By this I mean, find other Pagoda owners in your area that you can meet and exchange valuable information with that will safe you time and money. This brings me to the main point why I make this list and keep it up to date. The point is to give you a chance to check this post from time to time to see if some one joined (Full or Associate Member) within your area where you live. That is the primary reason why I made and keep up to date the posts for Full and Associate Members of this Group. It is often said “It’s not only about our Cars, it’s mostly about People”



Stay Safe! Enjoy the site and be sure to ask questions.

Cheers,

Dieter

Hi All that have joined us at our truley International site, Welcome nice to see you here!

However, I've noticed that most of you join, and then .... nothing happens. Why not take a moment and say hello and introduce yourself we love to hear from you! Tell us why you joined, are you ...

1 - looking for a Pagoda?
2 - do you have a pagoda?
3 -or are you just interested in a Pagoda?

If you have a Pagoda we love to see a picture? if you have problems posting a picture we are happy to help and point the way. So once again Welcome to our site!

Dieter

PS almost 70 of you joined our group to January 28, only 9 posted something in our forum. Why not say hello here ...

Another way for you to find Members within your area of residence is to check out the "Members" Menu Option above as follows;

1 - Click on Members
2 - click on View the memberlist
3 - In the Spreadsheet click on Location in the Headings of the table

The listing is now alphabeticly sorted by Location. In order to find your area UK, France, Nederlands etc. page thru the pages (USA starts around page 27, (once you sorted on Location) or so all Page # depending on the computer device / screen you have).

Check it out

This SL Pagoda Group for our Pagoda Members is striving to constantly improve Benefits for our Full and Associate Members. Valuable information is available on this site if you own or plan to own one of those classic cars. A very minimal annual fee of $30- provides Full Members with complete access to this site.

I started some time ago a Topic here when Full Members joined the group. I did so in order that the New Member may check the listing if there are other members in the area where he or she lives. When I joined the Group in 2013 members pointed out to me that there are other members close by where I live and I found that to be very helpful. Needless to say we got together ever since then and our group is growing. Allowing us to get together for short drives and get-togethers. This then is how this Topic and the one I have for several years now for Full Members was created.

Another way you can find Members near where you live is as I pointed out in a previous post is as follows;-

1 - Click on Members
2 - click on View the memberlist
3 - In the Spreadsheet click on Location in the Headings of the table

Some of the valuable information that will help you with your Pagoda can be found in our Pagoda World and Pagoda Notes issues. Pagoda World has been issued since 2003 and is issued twice a year, Spring and Fall every year. Pagoda Notes is issued four times a year for our Full Members. We just added a Sortable Index for both publications so that our Full Members can find information of technical articles that other Members shared with everyone. Unfortunately access is restricted to only Full Members. I am including some screen images of both to give you an idea what is available to Full Members on this site. For a complete list of Full and Associate Member Benefits please refer to the posts above.

I include 4 Images below to give you an idea of the indexes and type of information you may find in Pagoda World and Pagoda Notes Issues.

Once again Welcome to our site and stay safe !!!

Dieter

That is correct Fonzi,

you are listed on the Full Member welcoming thread Under March 2021 this listing is NOT generated by our website. I do this so that members have a chance to look in and see if anyone from or near their area has joined so they may welcome them. I’ve been doing this for Full Members now for a few years and started doing it for Associate members this year.

Best and stay safe.
