Porsche Club of America

©<strong>2016</strong> Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times. 2017 Boxster S acceleration 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds with optional PDK and Sport Chrono Package.<br />

Effortless shifting.<br />

Of both gears and priorities.<br />

Suddenly, every obligation feels optional. It's a feeling accredited to the addicting nature of the new 718<br />

Boxster S. Its mid-engine layout, nearly perfectly balanced, sends it fearlessly into the curves. And its 0-60<br />

sprint of 4.0 seconds makes it no slouch on the straights, either. It thrives on a strict diet of curvy<br />

pavement, and with a new turbocharged flat-four engine, finds itself more equipped than ever to feast on all<br />

the fun that lies ahead. Porsche. There is no substitute.<br />

Shifting Gears: Fall Activities are Around the Corner<br />

By Jim Falgout, Region President<br />

irst gear: Well, we are in the midst of the<br />

F<br />

warm North Texas summer, and as a result<br />

our club activities are limited. We do still<br />

have social events and an autocross which<br />

is run by Equipe Rapide at Lone Star Park. Hopefully<br />

you have been able to enjoy your Porsche in other ways.<br />

2nd Gear: What is exciting to us are all the new<br />

members. I frequently see emails and Facebook postings<br />

about or from new members. It is great to see the<br />

responses from current members welcoming them to<br />

the club. I want to encourage all new members to attend<br />

any of our events including our monthly board<br />

meeting, which is held at the Hackberry Creek Country<br />

Club on the first Wednesday of the month. We have<br />

dinner at 6:30 pm, with the meeting starting at 7:00<br />

pm. If you want to have dinner, we will pay for your first<br />

one but you need to email social@mavpca.org to RSVP<br />

and then you’ll be contacted to select from the menu.<br />

3rd Gear: Activities will pick up in September, as you<br />

can see on the calendar on page 1. In addition to the<br />

social events and autocross, we will also have a Time<br />

Trial at MotorSport Ranch (MSR), a Saturday Drive<br />

to MSR, and a Drivers’ Education (DE) at MSR. If<br />

you have been thinking about participating in a Drivers’<br />

Education but are hesitant, then I would strongly<br />

recommend that you do the Saturday Drive to Motor-<br />

Sport Ranch. You will learn about the activity and get<br />

to drive on the course in a controlled series of laps. I<br />

participated in a drive to MSR and learned that DEs<br />

are not intimidating or dangerous or detrimental to my<br />

Porsche, and eventually enjoyed participating in a few<br />

of these events.<br />

4th Gear: As I have requested previously, we have<br />

had a social event in the past in the November/December<br />

time frame, formerly known as Founders’ Day, and<br />

we are encouraging any suggestions that would make it<br />

an event you would like to attend. So please send any<br />

suggestions to me (president@mavpca.org) or our social<br />

chairpersons (social@mavpca.org).<br />

5th Gear: I will always encourage you to help make<br />

your club the best club in PCA. If there is an activity that<br />

you enjoy, think of how you could assist us to make it<br />

one that others would enjoy. Also I encourage all chairpersons<br />

to seek an assistant that possibly could succeed<br />

them. That person could be you. Please contact Jim<br />

Gallegos at volunteers@mavpca.org.<br />

6th Gear: MAV OF THE MONTH. I know I have said<br />

this before, but it never ceases to amaze me how the<br />

talent we have in our club volunteers to help improve<br />

it. One of your fellow members came up with the idea<br />

of putting digital picture frames in the offices of<br />

Porsche dealers, which show a series of slides about our<br />

club. We can control the pictures that are displayed<br />

remotely. He has succeeded in placing one in Autobahn<br />

Porsche and one in Park Place Porsche and has<br />

requests for more. Our Mav of the Month is Bill Orr.<br />

Thanks, Bill, for having great ideas and following up<br />

with the implementation. Keep up the good work!<br />

Film Noir Department: The Case of the Missing Tail Light<br />

By Hammer<br />

he Big Heat enveloped<br />

T<br />

the Metroplex like a wet<br />

blanket over a coal fire.<br />

The mercury hadn’t<br />

touched 100° yet, but it<br />

was hot enough for the cicadas to<br />

be wearing sunscreen. Lance Armstrong<br />

tested positive for Snapple.<br />

I even saw a squirrel carrying his<br />

nuts with a potholder. You get the<br />

picture. It was hot.<br />

It was just before midnight. I<br />

was sidling into my local joint after<br />

a long day of beatin’ feet when a<br />

hand I could have sat in came out<br />

of the dimness and took hold of my<br />

shoulder and squashed it to a pulp.<br />

Then the hand moved me through<br />

the doors and casually lifted me up<br />

a step. The large face looked at me.<br />

A deep soft voice said to me, quietly:<br />

“What are you, a cop?”<br />

“No, I’m your fairy godmother.” I<br />

stammered.<br />

“Private dick, huh? What’s your<br />

name?”<br />

“Hammer, what’s yours?”<br />

“They call me Moose.” It didn’t take<br />

a genius to get the analogy.<br />

The big meat hook let me down<br />

slowly. He lit half of a cigar and<br />

threw the match on the floor, where<br />

a lot of company was waiting for it.<br />

His voice said bitterly:<br />

“I need you to find my Velma. Last<br />

time I saw her, she said she was taking<br />

my new 911 in to get the right tail light<br />

fixed. That was eight months ago. I ain’t<br />

seen or heard from her since.”<br />

“Eight months is a long time not to<br />

hear.” I confided. “Maybe she just got<br />

up and left.”<br />

The big hand came out again,<br />

but this time I was prepared.<br />

“Look pal, I get fifty bucks a day plus<br />

expenses. I’ll find your Velma . . . and<br />

your 911, and maybe get your tail light<br />

fixed in the process.”<br />

The big hand stopped.<br />

For some pathetic reason, I empathized<br />

with the big lug. The last<br />

time I trusted a dame was in Paris in<br />

1940. She said she was going out to<br />

get a bottle of wine. Two hours later,<br />

the Germans marched into France.<br />

“So how do I get a hold of you when I<br />

find her?” I asked.<br />

6 <strong>August</strong><br />

Not a flinch. The big man peeled<br />

off a couple of C-notes; handed<br />

them to me and then disappeared<br />

into the dark night.<br />

Somehow I had a feeling that<br />

he’d have no trouble finding me.<br />

When, and if, I found his Velma.<br />

Or his 911. With or without the tail<br />

light fixed.<br />

I snooped around for a while<br />

but was getting nowhere fast when<br />

I decided to check out the local<br />

Porsche dealership. The building itself<br />

wasn’t much. It was smaller than<br />

Buckingham Palace and probably<br />

had fewer windows than the Chrysler<br />

building.<br />

I sparred with the guy behind the<br />

parts counter for a couple of minutes,<br />

but it was like trying to open<br />

a sardine can after you broke off<br />

the metal lip. There was something<br />

about Benjamin Franklin’s picture<br />

that loosened him up.<br />

“Yeah, we hear that all the time.<br />

People think that one of their tail lights<br />

is ‘out’, but it really isn’t. The light they<br />

think is ‘out’ doesn’t exist.”<br />

“What do you mean, it doesn’t exist?”<br />

“It’s just not there. There’s an extra<br />

tail lamp located in the light cluster on<br />

the left side of the car that is known as<br />

a rear ‘fog tail lamp’. It’s a European<br />

thing; mandated by law even. But there<br />

is no such lamp on the right side. So<br />

Porsche owners think that one of their<br />

tail lights is ‘out’ when they switch on all<br />

the lights.”<br />

“So why is there a ‘fog tail lamp’ at<br />

all?”<br />

“Listen friend, when you’re screaming<br />

down the Autobahn in the fog, the left<br />

rear fog tail lamp lets approaching drivers<br />

know your position from a distance.<br />

So you don’t get smacked from behind.<br />

And so you know where to pass someone<br />

in front of you. Kapish?”<br />

Suddenly, it all made sense to<br />

me, like a slap in the face, or the<br />

slug from a .45. Velma knew all<br />

along that the tail light didn’t exist.<br />

She absconded with the big man’s<br />

Porsche for her own means; probably<br />

sold it for fast cash on Craigslist.<br />

I didn’t have the heart, or the<br />

constitution, to tell the big man<br />

what I discovered, so I laid low for<br />

a couple of days, hoping something<br />

would develop. Then one day, while<br />

chomping down some Egg Foo Yung<br />

at a local Chinese joint, SHE walked<br />

in. There was no mistaking her.<br />

Wearing a dress that was too tight a<br />

year ago, Velma stood before me.<br />

“Hey doll, there’s a guy the size of a<br />

beer truck lookin’ for you, and his new<br />

911.” I paused to gauge her reaction.<br />

“I took his 911 to a Porsche dealer,<br />

honest I did. The mechanics there said<br />

it’s possible to run a jumper wire from<br />

the left socket to the right socket and then<br />

install another bulb, so both would illuminate.<br />

But they wouldn’t do the modification<br />

because it was against Porsche<br />

company policy. So I panicked and ran. I<br />

can’t go back to Moose now with only one<br />

rear fog lamp lit. He’s on the lam, and if<br />

he ever gets stopped by some flatfoot for<br />

having a rear light out, he’s headin’ for<br />

the slammer for sure!”<br />

“Can you help us out?” She stared<br />

at me with large doe eyes that<br />

looked like pools of Aqua Velva, except<br />

without the smell.<br />

“I get fifty…….”<br />

“Yeah, yeah, I know. You get fifty<br />

bucks a day plus expenses. At least you’re<br />

cheaper than the dealer.”<br />

I strolled outside to where the<br />

Porsche was parked and turned on<br />

the lights. She was right. With the<br />

one rear fog light lit, the Porsche<br />

stuck out like spats at an Iowa picnic.<br />

I lifted the engine lid and removed<br />

the carpet covering the light<br />

cluster, then calmly removed the<br />

rear fog bulb from its socket. Problem<br />

solved. As long as Moose and<br />

Velma didn’t drive the Autobahn on<br />

a foggy day.<br />

I took the two hundred Moose<br />

gave me plus the fifty bucks she<br />

slipped me and donated it all to a<br />

local charity: the barkeep at my local<br />

joint. He’s registered as a 501(c)(3)<br />

organization. Go figure. I drank all<br />

night for free, and then took his sister<br />

home. Right then, life was good.<br />

Many thanks and apologies to Raymond<br />

Chandler, David Goodman, and<br />

Neil Simon. Astute readers will recognize<br />

the homages.

Destination Restoration: Just a little Wiggle<br />

By Ash Seidl-Staley<br />

Photos Courtesy of the Author<br />

ome cars are just quirky. Some cars have<br />

S<br />

sticking door handles, squeaky window<br />

rollers, and what seems like a mind of their<br />

own. My 1987 944 embodies this categorization.<br />

It is a little tricky getting the driver’s side door<br />

open, the window regulator makes weird noises going<br />

up and down, and sometimes she just doesn’t want to<br />

start! Thankfully most of the issues on my 944 are cosmetic,<br />

or at most, not mechanically essential. It could<br />

definitely use a fresh coat of paint, metal repair, and<br />

interior work, but to be honest, none of that really matters,<br />

as long as I can drive it.<br />

Lately, the 944 has started to act up in the mornings.<br />

On days where I don’t have to pick up Hans from<br />

daycare, I look forward to taking one of the Porsches to<br />

work and school. As always, on these days in particular,<br />

the 944 decides she has other plans. She refuses to start.<br />

Last week I lent my daily beater, a Suzuki Vitara,<br />

to my sister, as her car was in the shop. I hopped into<br />

the 944 early the next morning expecting it to start, as<br />

she had done two days prior, but I should have known<br />

not to expect any guarantees from a classic Porsche.<br />

I turned the key and heard both the starter and fuel<br />

pump kick on, but the car didn’t fire up. As always I<br />

tried the key a few more times, but to no avail. Not<br />

wanting to be late I had Jenny take me to work, as the<br />

914 is bone dry and awaiting a valve job. I spent the<br />

entire day at work wondering why the 944 didn’t fire.<br />

Was it a sensor again? The dizzy? A fuse? Or did the<br />

dew-filled air infiltrate my contact points? When I got<br />

home later that day I immediately went out to the car<br />

and attempted another start. Unfortunately I was not<br />

able to chalk up the occurrence to perspiring contact<br />

points.<br />

At this time the<br />

hood came up and I<br />

started checking all<br />

the usual suspects.<br />

The flywheel sensor<br />

was plugged in, my<br />

spark plug wires were<br />

connected properly,<br />

distributor was in its<br />

proper place, and all<br />

cables looked good.<br />

Now that I was sufficiently<br />

flabbergasted<br />

by the conundrum<br />

before me, I popped<br />

open the car’s fuse/<br />

control unit, located<br />

Table of relay and fuse functions;<br />

note relay G-2 is also<br />

ignition related<br />

near the window cowl, and started checking the relays<br />

and fuses. All the fuses checked out, just as I thought<br />

they would, but what about the relays? I have yet to<br />

replace any of the relays, and it is unknown whether<br />

or not the previous owner did either. According to the<br />

nicely placed diagram/table on the fuse box lid, the<br />

G-14 relay is the ignition relay, so, naturally I inspected<br />

this one first.<br />

Taking a trick<br />

out of my Grandpa’s<br />

old playbook,<br />

I merely wiggled<br />

the relay to see<br />

that is was seated<br />

properly and<br />

then stood back<br />

in deep thought.<br />

Somehow the<br />

thought occurred<br />

to me to attempt<br />

another start. I always<br />

attempt starts<br />

after adjusting anything,<br />

so I know<br />

that what I just<br />

adjusted was the<br />

culprit keeping Author pointing to G-14<br />

ignition relay fuse<br />

the car from starting.<br />

I didn’t think<br />

that just wiggling the relay would produce a result, but<br />

as always the 944 surprised me. She fired right up!<br />

Now this might seem weird, but if you really think<br />

about it, quick -- almost magical -- fixes occur all the<br />

time. We all know of at least one story, event, or experience<br />

where a mechanic friend or family member<br />

merely touches the car, or one of its components, and<br />

the car starts working again. In this moment I was<br />

“That Guy!” On a more realistic level, this quick fix is<br />

just that, a quick fix. The issue is more than likely going<br />

to pop up again, and who knows if the wiggle method<br />

will work next time. Because of this reality, I decided to<br />

pull the relay and clean its prongs with a wire brush. In<br />

addition to the cleaning I also ordered an extra relay<br />

from Pelican Parts.<br />

Quick fixes work on the fly, but it is important to<br />

address the real issue head on when time is available. I<br />

am thankful I figured this quirk out, but as we all know<br />

there will be many others . . . . Wrench on Mavs!<br />

took place on Sunday,<br />

June 12 at the Cooper<br />

Aerobics Center in Dallas. This was<br />

a week later than originally scheduled<br />

due to weather concerns, but<br />

that did not diminish the quality of<br />

the automobiles that showed up.<br />

From classic Corvettes to vintage<br />

Jaguars and modern day exotics,<br />

Autos in the Park had something<br />

for everyone.<br />

The event is put on by longtime<br />

Porsche owner and PCA member<br />

Jack Griffin, and it benefits the<br />

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital and<br />

The Cooper Institute. There were<br />

175 registered cars from various<br />

car clubs and individuals, including<br />

the Maverick Region of the Porsche<br />

Club of America, the Corvette Club<br />

of North Texas, the Ferrari Club of<br />

Dallas, the Italian Car Club of the<br />

Southwest, the Lamborghini Club<br />

of Dallas, the Rolls Royce Club of<br />

North Texas, the Austin Healey<br />

Club, and Micro Cars. Maverick Region<br />

had the largest turnout, with<br />

45 registered cars on display.<br />

COTA Driver Education: Everything Else Is . . . Just Waiting<br />

By Ed Reynolds<br />

Photos Courtesy of the Author<br />

id-engine with a sequential gearbox and<br />

M<br />

paddle shifters on the steering wheel.<br />

Those may be the only things my 2014 Cayman<br />

S has in common with a Formula 1 car,<br />

but nonetheless, I’m having my own personal fantasy<br />

as I’m “just waiting” to enter the paddock at Circuit<br />

of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, the current site of<br />

the U.S. Grand Prix. Finally, I get my credentials at the<br />

checkpoint and drive through the tunnel entering an<br />

area that is impossible to access during a Formula 1<br />

race – unless you are an A-lister or have a net worth<br />

with as many zeros as the national debt.<br />

After participating in 12 DEs at MotorSport Ranch<br />

(MSR) and Eagles Canyon Raceway, and being an avid<br />

F1 fan for 20-plus years, I am looking forward to the<br />

experience of driving a true Formula 1 circuit. This is a<br />

real bucket-list item for me; an opportunity to not only<br />

be inside of the fence, not just cruise or tour the track,<br />

but an opportunity to attack it at speed.<br />

I have planned on attending the Advanced Solo DE<br />

at COTA for nearly a year, and have spent countless<br />

hours studying the track layout and watching in-car<br />

videos to learn the driving line. When my first session<br />

on Friday morning arrives, I elect to get in line for a<br />

“lead-follow” group where an instructor would lead<br />

a line of cars to demonstrate the proper way to drive<br />

the circuit. This exercise is a slow run by design, but<br />

after one lap, I find that I was “just waiting” to go much<br />

much faster! As soon as I see a passing signal entering<br />

the front straight, I mash the throttle and take off. The<br />

sun is still low in the sky as I fly down the front straight<br />

past the massive but empty grandstands, up the steep<br />

hill into a blind hairpin like I’ve seen so many times on<br />

TV. This is awesome.<br />

The Circuit of the Americas track shown in full with elevation<br />

changes. Studying this in advance was helpful<br />

16 <strong>August</strong><br />

I take it easy as I carve through the first set of challenging<br />

switchbacks and other early corners. When I<br />

come to the long back straight, no other cars are near<br />

me and I go full power. Approaching the end of this<br />

straight, I hear the PDK upshift to fifth gear, and I say<br />

to myself “holy crap, this is fast.” And then I hear a faint<br />

voice in the back of my head. It sounds like Rafael Serralta,<br />

my first DE instructor: “Just remember: nothing<br />

bad happens when you brake too early!” So I hit the<br />

brakes at the 300-meter marker and nearly come to a<br />

dead stop well before I can even see the corner. I have<br />

a laugh at myself, and get back on the gas to finish the<br />

straight. I’ll gradually move my braking point to about<br />

160 meters over the rest of the weekend. That’s what<br />

Driver Education events are about: learning, but learning<br />

safely, and in a controlled manner.<br />

DEs are not just about high speed, although the<br />

author took advantage of that long back straight<br />

In driver meetings at MotorSport Ranch, DE Chair<br />

Chris Tabor made a point about MSR being a great<br />

track for learning with its varied corners and configurations.<br />

In Chris’ words, “if you can drive MSR, you can<br />

pretty much drive any circuit in America.” I found this<br />

to be true, with many of the corners at COTA being<br />

similar in nature to those at MSR. The skills and cornering<br />

techniques that I learned at MSR allowed me to<br />

learn COTA in just five laps. MSR really is a great track<br />

to learn high performance driving.<br />

But DEs are not just about high speed. People that<br />

haven’t driven on a racing circuit will almost always ask<br />

the same question: “How fast did you go?” I tell them,<br />

“Well I hit 141 mph on the back straight” and they say<br />

something like “wow, that’s fast.” What they should ask<br />

is “how quick did you go?” That question covers the<br />

driving skill aspect of how quickly you can get through<br />

a corner while carrying speed and momentum.<br />

Hitting 140+ on the back straight may sound really<br />

exciting, and it does get your attention. But when the<br />

track is clear, I find myself at full throttle for 20 seconds

with not much to do until that 150 meter marker. Basically<br />

it was straight-line acceleration, and I am “just<br />

waiting” for that marker, then brake hard, get the proper<br />

turn-in, power through the apex, and feel the lateral<br />

forces as the car rushes forward out of the turn. The<br />

real fun is in the turns, but we Porsche owners know<br />

that, don’t we?<br />

car” – a total connection. For me, the experience of<br />

taking a Porsche to its limit is simply pure elation and<br />

satisfaction. The marketing folks are right: “there is no<br />

substitute.”<br />

A car from a marque with a racing heritage should<br />

really be experienced at a true racing circuit. I’ll echo<br />

past articles in encouraging new and current members<br />

to try one of the upcoming DEs. There are events<br />

planned for September and October at MSR. With the<br />

amount of focus on safety and education, there is a<br />

near-zero chance that you or your car will experience<br />

any mishap. Rather, you have a 100 percent chance of<br />

having a blast and truly experiencing the performance<br />

that is engineered into your Porsche. So come on out<br />

and meet some great people.<br />

For Porsche drivers, this is where the fun is<br />

For PCA, the first priority in any DE is safety, always!<br />

And honestly, I was concerned that there would be 55-<br />

60 cars in a run group at COTA, since I think MSR is<br />

crowded when we have 30 cars on the 3.1-mile course.<br />

COTA would be up to 60 cars on a 3.4-mile circuit! But<br />

there were no issues at all, as everyone was prompt in<br />

signaling for passes and very courteous. I heard that<br />

there were some “trains” on the first day, but my experience<br />

was that a line of cars usually sorted itself out<br />

within half a lap.<br />

At every PCA DE I have found this friendly and cooperative<br />

spirit among the participants and have made<br />

many new friends. At COTA it was just as good. The<br />

atmosphere and energy level among all of the PCA<br />

members was fantastic. Everyone was buzzing around<br />

like a seven-year-old on Christmas morning, sharing<br />

their experiences, swapping stories, and sharing what<br />

they learned.<br />

When I participate in a DE, I set goals for myself,<br />

which can range from braking and cornering skills to<br />

visual skills in seeing farther around the track. But I<br />

usually reserve one of my last sessions to “just drive.” I<br />

hit the track and drive at 8/10ths, not trying anything<br />

new, just using what I know. Clearing my mind of all<br />

the “remember this, do that,” the experience becomes<br />

organic. Since I’m not trying anything new, everything<br />

is smooth and in control. Then magic happens and I<br />

instinctively drive faster to the point where I’m driving<br />

flat out at 10/10ths without even thinking about<br />

it. In other sports it’s called “being in the zone”; to me<br />

it feels like I’m flying the car rather than driving it. I<br />

can only describe it as a feeling of “being one with the<br />

The author in a rare moment alone with his<br />

Cayman on the Formula 1 COTA track<br />

For me, driving the Formula 1 circuit at COTA was a<br />

once-in-a-lifetime experience. Wait, that’s not right; I<br />

have to go back! And while I am looking forward to the<br />

upcoming events at MSR, I’m already “just waiting” for<br />

the 2017 Advanced DE at COTA.<br />

11-hour days plus rest stops, but my<br />

point is that you could get there in<br />

half a week if you had a good reason<br />

to do it.<br />

By comparison, Jay Peak Resort,<br />

a remote ski area in northeastern<br />

Vermont, is “only” about 1800<br />

miles from North Texas, or three<br />

9-1/2 hour days, again, if you had<br />

a good reason to do it. Believe it<br />

or not, over 30 Maverick Region<br />

members thought that attending<br />

the Porsche Parade at Jay Peak was<br />

a good enough reason to make that<br />

drive, myself included. If you have<br />

attended a Parade, you probably<br />

don’t need more justification; if<br />

you haven’t attended one, perhaps<br />

knowing that these folks chose to<br />

spend at least three days driving<br />

each way, plus a full week at the<br />

Parade, might convince you to try<br />

one sometime. As it so happens –<br />

hint, hint – the 2018 Parade will be<br />

at the Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage<br />

Beach, Missouri, a mere 500 or so<br />

miles away, and you have two years<br />

to plan for it. But I digress -- this<br />

story is about the <strong>2016</strong> Parade.<br />

As you may know, the Porsche<br />

Parade is PCA’s annual national<br />

18 <strong>August</strong><br />

convention, held in a different<br />

part of North America each year<br />

(and yes, there has been a Parade<br />

in Canada). The event runs seven<br />

days and contains four traditional<br />

competitive Porsche-related events,<br />

as well as several more events that<br />

are less Porsche-centered but just<br />

as competitive. But the competition<br />

is not the main reason to go;<br />

many entrants don’t compete at all.<br />

There are driving tours, banquets,<br />

an art show, goodie store, hospitality,<br />

technical seminars, driving<br />

tours, a golf tournament, wine and<br />

beer tastings, RC car races (for<br />

kids of all ages), and did I mention<br />

driving tours? So if you are not the<br />

competitive type, there is still a lot<br />

to keep you and your Porsche busy.<br />

However, much of the Maverick<br />

contingent did turn out to be of<br />

the competitive variety. As I mentioned,<br />

there are four traditional<br />

competitive events: the Concours<br />

d’Elegance, the Time-Speed-Distance<br />

(TSD) Rally, the Autocross,<br />

and the Technical Quiz. Maverick<br />

Region had competitors in each of<br />

these events, as well as in the Gimmick<br />

Rally.<br />

The Concours is a car show<br />

in which a group of experienced<br />

judges examine the cars for cleanliness<br />

and originality. There is also<br />

often a display of historic Porsches,<br />

and this year was no exception.<br />

Normally, Maverick Region has<br />

several entrants in the Concours,<br />

but this year we had only one: Mark<br />

Roberts. Mark represented us very<br />

well, though, with a first place in<br />

Mark Robert’s <strong>2016</strong> Boxster S<br />

class PP10S (Street Preparation,<br />

2013-on Boxster/Cayman) with his<br />

<strong>2016</strong> Boxster S. Mark drove his car<br />

2100 miles and then spent 14 hours<br />

preparing it for the Concours. Class<br />

PP10S is very competitive, and this<br />

was Mark’s first Parade! Congratulations<br />

Mark!<br />

Don and Carey at the TSD Rally<br />

As anyone who has entered a<br />

Rally can attest, a TSD Rally is not<br />

a race. It is a competition based on<br />

precision timing and navigation.<br />

Each car, which must contain a<br />

driver and navigator, is given a set<br />

of instructions that give them as<br />

little information as possible as to<br />

where to go and when to get there.<br />

There are usually several Mavericks<br />

in the TSD rally, but this year there<br />

was just one team: Don Breithaupt<br />

(driver) and yours truly (navigator).<br />

But again, Don and I represented<br />

Maverick Region pretty well,<br />

taking third place in Class R04 (Unequipped<br />

Plus) and 11th overall in<br />

Don’s Boxster.<br />

Much less stressful than the TSD<br />

Rally is the Gimmick Rally, in which<br />

time, speed, and distance are not<br />

nearly as important as finding certain<br />

signs and landmarks along the<br />

way. There are two Gimmick Rally<br />

classes: one for cars containing two<br />

participants, and one for cars with<br />

more than two participants. Mavericks<br />

participated in the former<br />

class, with Bob and Linda Knight<br />

taking home a ninth place trophy.

Also competing (and actually finishing,<br />

which is no mean feat itself)<br />

were John and Chris Hamilton,<br />

Mark Roberts and Renee Rentzel,<br />

and Ralph and Barbara Kauffman.<br />

Included in this event was a Selfie<br />

contest, in which Bob and Linda<br />

took third place for their self-portrait<br />

in front of the Kissing Bridge.<br />

What a cute couple!<br />

Bob and Linda Knight captured a<br />

winning selfie at the Kissing Bridge<br />

The Parade Autocross takes<br />

place over two days because of the<br />

number of drivers entered. This<br />

year it was held on the runway of<br />

a local airport, and proved to be<br />

trickier than it looked, with many<br />

drivers getting lost on the course<br />

for at least one of their three runs,<br />

and even a few drivers never actually<br />

getting in a clean run. Unfortunately,<br />

Day 1 was wet and cold for<br />

most of the drivers, with a sunny<br />

respite for the final run group in<br />

the afternoon. Day 2 proved much<br />

nicer, with a cool day and a dry<br />

course.<br />

Five Mavericks participated in<br />

the Autocross, and almost all took<br />

home trophies. Fred and Denny<br />

ran on Day 1 on a wet course,<br />

hence the difference in best times<br />

from the other drivers, who ran on<br />

Day 2.<br />

Ed Mayo and Julia Underwood shared<br />

driving duties in Ed’s 1972 911S<br />

Carey Spreen’s 1982 911SC<br />

As a side note, a 918 Spyder actually<br />

ran in the autocross, which is<br />

a first. How did it compare to the<br />

other, mere mortal Porsches? Alas,<br />

we’ll never know, because the driver<br />

got off course (DNF’d) all three<br />

runs and did not receive an official<br />

time.<br />

The Tech Quiz is a combination<br />

of historical and technical trivia<br />

questions, consisting of 50 general<br />

questions about Porsches and their<br />

history, as well as 25 more modelspecific<br />

questions, with the model<br />

depending on which quiz the<br />

entrant elected to take. This year,<br />

the only Maverick to take the Tech<br />

Quiz was your obedient servant,<br />

who garnered a first in class Q06M<br />

(914) and third overall.<br />

PCA also awards Zone and<br />

Regional websites, and our own<br />

Wendy Shoffit took third place for<br />

the Zone 5 website, for which she is<br />

webmaster. Unfortunately, Wendy<br />

and James were unable to compete<br />

in autocross this year (see James’<br />

article about WHY on page 28).<br />

We also had an Art Show entry<br />

from Julia Underwood, who won<br />

first place in the Artisan Crafts<br />

Textiles/Quilts/Needlework category<br />

for a quilted hanging of her<br />

Porsche. Congratulations Julia!<br />

Travelog: James, Wendy, and Jasmine’s Excellent Adventure<br />

By James Shoffit<br />

Photos Courtesy of the Shoffits<br />

n Wednesday, June 15,<br />

O<br />

we had the Cayenne<br />

loaded and got rolling<br />

before 7 am. We made<br />

great progress through Memphis,<br />

but then just past Jackson, TN, the<br />

Cayenne started “dropping out.”<br />

The fuel delivery seemed impaired<br />

for three-second increments. It<br />

would shut down all power, then,<br />

after three seconds, resume. It did<br />

this about once every couple of<br />

minutes for almost 100 miles. After<br />

the outside temperature dropped<br />

from 95 to 75 it stopped happening,<br />

but we decided to have the error<br />

codes checked on the computer<br />

at the dealership in Nashville to<br />

determine what was causing it, how<br />

serious it was, and what needed to<br />

be done.<br />

I called the Nashville area PCA<br />

Region president (Mike Moody,<br />

Musik-Stadt Region) and he was<br />

very helpful trying to find us someone<br />

who could read error codes<br />

at 7 pm at night. None could be<br />

found, but he even called us back<br />

several times to make sure things<br />

were getting taken care of.<br />

We got to Porsche of Nashville at<br />

7 am the next morning (Thursday,<br />

June 16) and Nick went right to<br />

work diagnosing the problem, finding<br />

a fault on the high pressure fuel<br />

pump internal valve. He replaced<br />

that valve, but then had another issue<br />

with the crank position sensor.<br />

He cleaned that, and then still had<br />

a few other stalling issues, but they<br />

went away, and Nick knew we were<br />

in a rush, so we buttoned it up,<br />

paid the bill, and went on our way,<br />

hitting the road around noon.<br />

Two hundred trouble-free miles<br />

ensued, but then the same problem<br />

started happening again. It is<br />

hilarious now in hindsight that we<br />

decided to NOT stop in Bowling<br />

Green, KY to see the Corvette Museum<br />

and new race track because<br />

28 <strong>August</strong><br />

we wanted to get to Jay Peak Vermont<br />

and didn’t have time. We had no idea<br />

of the delays that would befall us.<br />

Cincinnati Porsche dealer showroom<br />

The problem got worse and<br />

worse over the next 70 miles. The<br />

nearest Porsche dealership was in<br />

downtown Cincinnati, and we were<br />

rolling through in rush hour, in a<br />

car that would be cruising along<br />

at 50 mph and then suddenly die,<br />

completely, and roll to a stop. This<br />

was frustrating and terrifying, as<br />

cars around us swerved to miss us,<br />

honking at our idiocy. We limped at<br />

barely 15 mph into Porsche of the<br />

Village in Cincinnati. Service was<br />

closed, but they got us scheduled<br />

for the next morning to be looked<br />

at. Unfortunately, we still had 900<br />

miles to traverse on Friday, since<br />

our hotel reservation in Jay Peak<br />

started Friday night! No time for<br />

nonsense!<br />

We even considered purchasing<br />

a newer Cayenne. Or Macan. Heck,<br />

we even looked at a Volvo (not seriously).<br />

Nothing seemed like the<br />

best option, so we locked up the<br />

Cayenne on the dealership front<br />

parking lot, packed to the gills, and<br />

Uber-ed to the airport to rent a car.<br />

We looked up rental prices on<br />

vehicles -- Suburbans, trucks, anything<br />

but a minivan. I would rather<br />

walk to Parade than show up in a<br />

minivan! There was a crossover<br />

Dodge Journey that we walked<br />

past on the way to the Hertz office,<br />

and we priced it at $423 a week on<br />

our phones. But I went to the desk<br />

to see what else they had, and if I<br />

could get a better last-minute price.<br />

They told me they didn’t have ANY<br />

minivans or crossovers at all, and<br />

so I asked about the Dodge Journey<br />

I had just seen, and they said it<br />

wasn’t available, and even if it was,<br />

the price would be $800 a week,<br />

nearly double.<br />

So, while standing at the desk,<br />

fuming, I booked that exact car<br />

using my phone, and showed the<br />

counter agent the confirmation<br />

number. She acknowledged the<br />

$423 price and handed me the keys,<br />

we told them we would see them in<br />

two weeks, and we got in our Journey<br />

and left. After a few minutes of<br />

lackluster driving, a question occurred<br />

to me, so I Googled “Dodge<br />

Journey horsepower.” Google said<br />

“no results found.” I kid. It has dozens<br />

of horsepower. Dozens!<br />

The rental with “dozens of horsepower”<br />

We got on I-71 to head back to<br />

the Porsche dealership. It was now<br />

7:30pm, and we hoped to transfer<br />

all our belongings from our Cayenne,<br />

parked in the front lot, to<br />

the Journey, which looked like it<br />

just might have enough space for it.<br />

Still on the way to the dealer,<br />

we saw a plume of smoke on the<br />

horizon. “Looks like something<br />

caught on fire,” we commented.<br />

Traffic was beginning to build a bit,<br />

but Google assured us there was<br />

only about a mile to get past the<br />

incident, so instead of exiting the<br />

highway, we stayed on, to just slowly<br />

roll through it. Only we didn’t roll.

We stopped. For over 2.5 hours<br />

we didn’t move an inch. A car had<br />

hit a semi, which caught fire, and<br />

spilled hazardous materials all over<br />

the highway, which required days/<br />

weeks/months of cleanup. Finally<br />

after 2.5 hours of sitting there, the<br />

police helped reverse the flow of<br />

traffic, and we were able to go get<br />

dinner (hadn’t eaten since lunchtime<br />

near Nashville). The only<br />

place open was McDonalds. And I<br />

spilled mustard on my pants. And<br />

we were exhausted. And we still<br />

had to unpack everything out of<br />

the Cayenne and pack it into the<br />

Journey, which we completed about<br />

11:30 pm.<br />

A truck fire closed the highway<br />

So we determined to just get<br />

to the other side of Cincinnati,<br />

and booked a room in Blue Ash<br />

for the night. It was about nearing<br />

midnight, and this was one of the<br />

worst travel days we had ever experienced.<br />

Then for some reason we decided<br />

to try one last-ditch effort to turn<br />

the day around. So we Googled “ice<br />

cream near me,” knowing full well<br />

nothing would be open. But something<br />

WAS open. It was called Rhino’s<br />

Frozen Yogurt and Soft Serve<br />

in Blue Ash, Ohio. It was open 24<br />

hours. Yay! But it was located in a<br />

Froyo to end a forgettable day<br />

Mount Washington - then and now<br />

gas station. What? Boo! But we got<br />

there, and it was the best damned<br />

froyo place we had experienced!<br />

Clean, fresh, AMAZING choice of<br />

flavors and toppings, and they had<br />

coolers for the toppings that needed<br />

it and lids that kept everything<br />

fresh. We devoured our delicious<br />

treat and went to bed, very glad the<br />

day was behind us.<br />

The next day we drove up<br />

through Cleveland, and had lunch<br />

in Conneaut, OH, at a Subway overlooking<br />

Lake Erie. A quick jaunt<br />

through Pennsylvania on highway<br />

90, up to Syracuse, then north<br />

through Watertown, paralleling<br />

the St. Lawrence River, arriving at<br />

Jay Peak before 10 pm. In a Dodge<br />

Journey.<br />

Porsche Parade <strong>2016</strong> Jay Peak<br />

was great, but this story is about the<br />

travels, not Parade itself.<br />

While there, we took the tram<br />

to the top of Jay Peak and stood on<br />

the concrete summit marker and<br />

took pictures.<br />

So we left Sunday morning, June<br />

26, heading for Mount Washington<br />

in New Hampshire. Back in the<br />

early ‘90s, Wendy and I and a few<br />

friends drove much of this same<br />

itinerary, knocking interesting<br />

things off our checklists and picking<br />

up all the states in the Northeast.<br />

This was way before Jasmine<br />

was born, so we wanted to show Jasmine<br />

all the cool stuff. We did NOT<br />

bother to show her the Longest<br />

Covered Bridge in the world, near<br />

Hartland, New Brunswick. We also<br />

skipped the largest tidal whirlpool<br />

in the Western Hemisphere (Bay of<br />

Fundy). Both were . . . lackluster.<br />

But back to Mount Washington.<br />

Maverick member Denny Payne<br />

and I bought tickets for the Cog<br />

Railway to the top. We met there<br />

just before 11 to get a quick snack.<br />

Now the last time we went to the<br />

top of Mount Washington, it was 80<br />

degrees at the bottom and 45 degrees<br />

at the top, with 10ft visibility,<br />

massive cloud cover, and wind blowing<br />

a steady 30-50 mph. INSANE<br />

conditions. We warned Jasmine<br />

that she would be entering Hell on<br />

earth. The most extreme weather<br />

on the planet. The ONLY place to<br />

record 231 mph wind speeds with<br />

humans checking the instrumentation.<br />

So the cog train (VERY COOL,<br />

BY THE WAY) stops at the top, and<br />

. . . it is 60 degrees. Sunny. Clear.<br />

They told us you could see Jay<br />

Peak, which was 120 miles away, if<br />

you knew which direction to look.<br />

We didn’t even need jackets. DIS-<br />

APPOINTING. But this time we<br />

climbed up to the summit (20 feet<br />

away), shopping and museuming<br />

for a while, then took the cog train<br />

back down. (VERY COOL, BY THE<br />

WAY). We ate lunch at the train station,<br />

after which Denny went his<br />

way and we went ours.<br />

Denny<br />

and James<br />

“leaning”<br />

on the way<br />

up in the<br />

cog train<br />


Jasmine has a friend from art<br />

school, Chad, who happens to live<br />

in Maine, about an hour from Acadia<br />

National Park, which was on<br />

our must-see list. We had reservations<br />

for the Bar Harbor Inn right<br />

on Mount Desert Isle, and we had<br />

enough time to try and arrange<br />

a visit. Wendy and I had become<br />

good friends with Chad’s mom<br />

during our many visits to Savannah<br />

for our kids and their college adventures.<br />

They agreed to meet us at<br />

a little town in between called Ellsworth,<br />

and this time we finally got<br />

to meet Chad’s dad, Jimmy, who is<br />

a real life Maine lobster fisherman.<br />

I am a huge fan of Deadliest Catch,<br />

and love hearing about fishing and<br />

boats and how all that works; so different<br />

from my software development<br />

life. Jimmy and I had a great<br />

time at dinner while he told me all<br />

about his industry and his boat and<br />

what it takes to succeed in the lobster<br />

business.<br />

Chad and Jasmine had fun<br />

catching up on the three weeks<br />

they hadn’t seen each other, and<br />

Wendy and Becky caught up on<br />

their perspective of the school and<br />

how the next few years might go.<br />

We finished up with ice cream (of<br />

course) and got to our room before<br />

11 pm.<br />

We left the curtains open so we<br />

could watch the sun rise, and were<br />

glad we did. You can’t get much<br />

further east in the continental US<br />

than Bar Harbor, Maine, and we<br />

woke up with twilight just after 4 am.<br />

We watched it fully rise (did a time<br />

lapse shot on Wendy’s iPhone) and<br />

just listened to the birds and lobster<br />

boats setting traps until about 5 am.<br />

Then we closed the blinds and got<br />

some more sleep!<br />

Off to Acadia National Park,<br />

one of our favorite places! We went<br />

to Thunder Hole, which was not<br />

very dramatic or deadly on this day<br />

-- the tide was coming in, but the<br />

seas were calm. We drove to the<br />

top of Cadillac Mountain, and then<br />

James and Wendy on<br />

Cadillac Mountain<br />

hiked the rest<br />

of the way to<br />

the summit.<br />

Third mountaintop<br />

in a<br />

week! We had<br />

great views of<br />

Bar Harbor,<br />

and everything<br />

else<br />

East of the<br />

Mississippi.<br />

We ate lunch<br />

at the Jordan Pond House, and the<br />

service was slow, but the food was<br />

great (everything had blueberries)<br />

and the weather was amazing. No<br />

regrets.<br />

Then we piled in the car, heading<br />

to Boston. We arrived at the Omni<br />

Parker House Hotel in downtown<br />

Boston, right on the Freedom Trail,<br />

around 10 pm. The Parker House<br />

is the longest continually operating<br />

hotel in the USA. It also was where<br />

the Boston Cream Pie originated,<br />

and where the Parker House Rolls<br />

were invented. So of course, we had<br />

to have both of those.<br />

The next day we got on a tour<br />

bus and started exploring Boston,<br />

hopping off at Faneuil Hall / Quincy<br />

Marketplace, and were amazed<br />

at all the dining options. We took<br />

pictures at one of the THREE<br />

“Cheers” bars in Boston (from<br />

the TV show). Jasmine was mainly<br />

looking for stuff she recognized<br />

from Fallout 4 (video game based<br />

in past-future apocalyptic Boston).<br />

We of course had to have some pastries<br />

from Mike’s in Boston, which<br />

were pretty tasty.<br />

We left Wednesday morning and<br />

headed towards Cincinnati, touring<br />

through Providence to pick<br />

up Rhode Island and then Connecticut<br />

after that. Took I-80 across<br />

Pennsylvania for the first time.<br />

Since we got a late start, we only<br />

made it to Ashland, OH (700 mile<br />

day - below par).<br />

Thursday morning we decided<br />

to call Porsche of the Village again<br />

to make SURE the Cayenne was going<br />

to be repaired when we came<br />

to pick it up around 10 am; we had<br />

a LONG drive back to Dallas ahead<br />

of us. We were glad to hear they<br />

had determined what the problem<br />

was. We were glad to hear they had<br />

ordered the correct parts. We were<br />

not glad to hear the parts wouldn’t<br />

arrive until the following Tuesday.<br />

Not glad at all. We brought our<br />

displeasure to their attention in<br />

the nicest possible manner and<br />

they were able to get the parts at<br />

around 11 am, and they targeted 3<br />

pm for us driving out of the dealership.<br />

They loaned us a Macan so we<br />

could try that out and tour the city<br />

a bit.<br />

So we unpacked everything from<br />

the Dodge Journey into the service<br />

manager’s office. We should have<br />

taken pictures of the avalanche of<br />

luggage there. And then we drove<br />

our borrowed Macan and our rented<br />

Dodge Journey to the airport to<br />

return it. We said our goodbyes to<br />

the Journey, while listening to Journey<br />

and reflecting on our Journey<br />

in the Journey, finally heading out<br />

in the Macan. Jasmine didn’t mind<br />

the back seat at all since it had its<br />

own climate control - something<br />

missing in our Cayenne.<br />

We had a great time across the<br />

river at the Levee in Newport, KY,<br />

and tried Tom and Chee for the<br />

first time. Google it. Then go there.<br />

You will NOT regret it!<br />

Finally we got back to the dealership,<br />

and it was taking a bit longer<br />

than expected, but at 4:15 we<br />

started loading it up, paid the bill<br />

(FAR less than we expected for all<br />

they did), and started driving.<br />

The Cayenne ran great without<br />

any further issues. We did have to<br />

stop one more night in Jackson,<br />

TN. We stopped to visit another of<br />

Jasmine’s friends for a few hours<br />

while we were driving through Arkansas.<br />

And we made it back home,<br />

safe and sound, around 5:30 pm on<br />

Friday, July 1.<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

o, I’ve been thinking a bit about change<br />

S<br />

during this past month. It could be that getting<br />

off of the main highways while on these<br />

last two road trips totaling over 5,500 miles<br />

has made me fully realize how much our small towns<br />

and rural areas have changed in the past 60 years.<br />

Abandoned storefronts, main streets and even sections<br />

of highway reminded me again and again that<br />

times have changed. Certainly the travel expectations<br />

of today’s drivers have changed and are perhaps the<br />

cause of us routing around these small towns to save 10<br />

minutes of drive time over that section of road.<br />

It’s easy to reminisce about the “good old days” and<br />

bemoan these types of changes in our road trip adventures.<br />

And then I read the Shoffit Travelog on page 28<br />

of this issue and realize that adventures can still be had<br />

on these great roads of ours if we have the time to take<br />

the less-traveled way.<br />

The only constant in our lives is change, so this<br />

quote from Dr. Ferdinand Porsche helped put things<br />

in perspective as I was writing this.<br />

Change is easy.<br />

Improvement is<br />

far more difficult.<br />

Ferdinand Porsche<br />

That leads me to inform you, “Constant<br />

Readers” (as Stephen King would say), of a change<br />

in one of the features I’ve been promoting in<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> since January.<br />

Maverick Photos of the Month was meant to be an ongoing<br />

opportunity for Mav members to submit photographs<br />

and share them with our readers without<br />

having to write articles. We’ve had good participation<br />

over the months, but I’ve realized that my highlighting<br />

a particular focus area each month was too confining<br />

for those members who like to take photos “in the moment”<br />

without wondering if they fit that month’s focus.<br />

So, Photos of the Month is no longer a monthly feature.<br />

To follow in Ferdi’s way of thinking, coming soon<br />

is a change, and hopefully an improvement, to our effort<br />

to include photos from members in each issue of<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong>, as well as online in easy to access albums.<br />

Bill Orr is the driving force behind this effort and we<br />

should all be the lucky recipients of having access to<br />

more member photos than ever before.<br />

Page 12 in this issue previews what we can expect<br />

in the future. Articles will continue to include as many<br />

photos as possible with the space we have, while URLs<br />

and QR codes will take you to online albums with dozens<br />

of additional photos.<br />

Bill has chosen to use Flickr as our online respository.<br />

Those members who currently have Flickr accounts<br />

can join the group Bill has created and even submit<br />

photos already. If you are interested, visit<br />

https://www.flickr.com/groups/maverickpca/.<br />

The September issue of <strong>Slipstream</strong> will include a full<br />

description of the Porsche of the Month process to get<br />

your photos published online.<br />

Hang in there Mavericks. While we are still in the<br />

throes of summer heat, looking ahead to our<br />

events calendar shows a big increase in the<br />

number of member driving events coming up .<br />

That must mean cooler weather for us, right?<br />

That change would be a big improvement!<br />
