Pagoda SL Group Technical Manual
This is the Wiki for the Technical Manual for the Pagoda SL Group, the International Club for Mercedes Benz 230 SL / 250 SL / 280 SL Roadsters of the W113 series. The information that is collected here derives from a number of sources, but mainly the old Yahoo W113 Group and the Pagoda SL Group Forums.

The Car Registry contains a list of all the cars known to us. This list used to be a database which people could add their details to. This lead to inconsistent formatting and out-of-date data. If you'd like to correct an entry for your car(s), please send a mail to email@example.com.
Diversions, detours, divertissements, dead-ends, frivolous stuff. This page leads to interesting tidbits of information about our beloved Pagoda cars and their owners. Feel free to add stuff!
