©2016 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times. Optional equipment shown is extra.
It doesn't ask to be idolized. Just driven hard.
While certainly deserving of a special place in your heart, all things being equal, it'd rather be whipping down
an ocean-side road. So we made it easy to want to take it out and drive hard. With a glorious new engine
increased to 3.8 liters of displacement, it gives the driver greater torque for instant, usable power. It also
touts a remarkable 500 horsepower. And it does all this while using less fuel. Add in lightning-fast shifts with
the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), and your urge to drive it will outweigh your desire to worship it.
Porsche. There is no substitute.

ZONE 5 REP
Shifting Gears: Maverick Region Summer Activities
By Jim Falgout, Region President
irst gear: June was an active month with
Autos in the Park, PCA Porsche Parade and
various social activities. Now July comes
and the activities are reduced, due to the
anticipated summer heat and various vacations. We will
not have a board meeting this month.
Second gear: Speaking of board meetings, the June
board meeting included a presentation by member Bill
Orr on some very interesting concepts for promoting
the Maverick Region at dealerships, as well as ideas
for a new logo. We will be soliciting your opinion on
a few alternatives for our logo. My point really is how
fortunate our club is to have a variety of talents to
contribute to the success of the Maverick Region.
Third gear: As I mentioned above, PCA Porsche
Parade was in June. The Maverick Region had a large
contingent attending and representing Zone 5. If you
did not go this year, try planning on going to one in the
future. You will be definitely enjoy it.
Fourth gear: This is a good time to reflect and
reevaluate. What club activities have you enjoyed? What
club activities would you like to participate in but have
not so far? Your club has a lot to offer.
Of course, I will always encourage you to ask yourself
what can you do to help your club provide these kinds
of experiences for others.
YOUR CLUB WANTS YOU . . .
volunteer! You will be glad you did. Just
contact Jim Gallegos at volunteers@
Fifth gear: In a previous issue I requested suggestions
for changes to our event in November known as
Founders’ Day (name subject to change). We really
want your input because we want it to be an event that
you would like to participate in and enjoy. So please
send any thoughts, no matter how minor, to either
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

Sixth gear: MAV OF THE MONTH
It is great to have members who will help out where
ever they can. One of the most time consuming jobs is
editor of Slipstream. We have been fortunate to have a
series of excellent editors which has resulted in our
monthly newsletter receiving several awards. We have a
member who was editor of Slipstream, and after handing
over the reins to another volunteer, continues to assist
in the production of the magazine. As was said recently,
he just does not know how to say “no.” Your Mav of the
Month this month is Carey Spreen. Thanks Carey for
all that you do.
What can you do to help
your club provide these kinds
of experiences for others?

Last “Minute” Substitution: June Board Meeting
By Carey Spreen, MRPCA Secretarial Pool June 1, 2016
egion President Jim Falgout
started the meet-
ing at 7:00 pm. His first
order of business was to
announce this year’s Nominating
Committee: past Presidents John
Hamilton, James Shoffit, and Mike
Brodigan. Jim also reminded us that
the club is looking for ways to revitalize
Founders’ Day, the Region’s
anniversary celebration. Mark
Schnoerr suggested renaming it the
Concours d’Elegance Chair Andy
Kay gave us information about the
Autos in the Park Concours, which
will use four teams of three judges
for scoring, a first for this event.
Slipstream Content Editor Carey
Spreen said that the number of June
issues printed was very close to the
mailing list total, and we’ll need to
increase the print count. Carey and
Jim Falgout discussed a proposal
from Region member Dreanna
Belden, Assistant Dean for External
Relations at UNT. She offered
to digitize our entire Slipstream
archive, making it searchable to the
word level. The cost to us would
be no more than $6,645.60. After
discussion, a motion was made and
seconded to accept the proposal,
pending a test run to assess quality
and file size. The vote passed.
Social Co-Chair Phyllis Gallegos
announced that this year’s Founders’
Day celebration will be held
Saturday, Nov 5, at the NYLO hotel
in Las Colinas. Bent Tree CC was
unavailable, and NYLO gave us similar
pricing. The Social Committee
has also set a few 2017 dates: the
All Member Party, Jan 28; May at
Mayo’s, May 6; and Founders’ Day,
Volunteer Chair Jim “Jimmyg”
Gallegos is looking for volunteers
who are interested in helping put
on various club activities. Contact
him at firstname.lastname@example.org for
Sunday Drive (aka PCA Tours)
Chair Tom Martin recapped the
May drive to Revolver Brewing in
Granbury, where 81 cars and 130
people participated, including the
President of the Granbury Chamber
of Commerce, who had recently
purchased a Porsche. Tom noted
that a new member, Mark Pitarresi,
who was present at the meeting, had
expressed interest in volunteering.
Social Co-Chair Tracy Robertson
noted that the Silent Auction, which
is a significant part of Founders’ Day
each year, is organized by the Social
Committee, which also organizes
the banquet itself. The Silent Auction
has become so big that it needs
to be managed by its own group.
Vice President David Robertson
reminded us that official Waiver and
Release forms with black and red
lettering must be used for all events
that involve moving cars. David has
several pads of these forms available
for use at these events.
Slipstream Managing Editor Jim
Hirsch thanked Carey for finishing
up the June issue. He also thanked
all of our content contributors for
continuing to get articles and photos
in before the 10th-of-the-month
Tech Session Chair Ed Mullenix
is working with Hans Hoffman at
RAC Performance to put together
a tech session there in September.
More information to come in the
Time Trial Chair Travis Howard
recapped the PCA Club Race and
Drivers’ Education event at Circuit
of the Americas in May. There was
a lighter turnout than in past years,
which made grid management
easier, but reduced revenue for
the event. The Time Trial at Mineral
Wells had 30 drivers attend, half
Porsches, half others, which is typical.
The Truxster had ignition problems
but was repaired and put back
into service. Most of our equipment
is getting old (purchased for the
2004 Parade) and may be due for
replacement. Lastly, he may have a
location in Weatherford to store the
Monthly Social Chair Stephanie
Ho said that we had over 60 attendees
at the Wildwood Grill social.
Turnout at Shuck-n-Jive was low
due to the weather. After discussion
it was determined that each venue
has its own cancellation policy, but
if there is no financial commitment,
canceling due to weather is acceptable.
She has locations booked
through the end of this year.
Calendar Boy Brendan Eagan
confirmed that the on-line and Slipstream
calendars remain in sync.
Remember to send any event date
changes to email@example.com.
Rally Co-Chair Don Sebert told us
that the Easter Egg Hunt rally drew
28 cars and was a lot of fun. He and
Co-Chair George Luxbacher are
discussing a rally this summer, and
will definitely be putting on another
Halloween rally in October.
Membership Chair John Hamilton
passed along a note from Drivers’
Education Chair Chris Tabor
that Chris is looking into an “intro
to DE” weekday evening event at
Autocross Chair Mark Schoerr
described the Equipe Rapide
Mirror-Cross event held at Mineral
Wells, which was similar to an SCCA
Pro-Solo event. He reminded us that
Equipe Rapide gives cash awards;
Mark, his wife Sigrid, and Fred
Stubbs all received cash payouts.
The next event is at Lone Star Park
on Sunday, July 24.
Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh
was able to purchase 1000 Maverick
Region window stickers for $65.
These stickers will be given out at
various region events.
Webmaster Denny Payne is in
discussion with James Shoffit and
Bill Orr about updating the Region
website to make it easier to search,
more mobile-friendly, and to add
the ability for members to post their
own classified ads. Bill noted that
the intent is to make it fit in more
closely with the PCA National website.
Safety Chair Joe McGlohen noted the loss of longtime
race controller Mary Coney on May 13, and told
us that there would be a celebration of her life on June
18. Joe noted that his Safety Chair apprentices are
working out well.
Bill Orr had three proposals for the board. First
was the use of internet-enabled digital photo frames to
promote Maverick Region at various locations. These
devices, which cost about $200 each, can show images
of region activities and include a QR code that allows
prospective members to join PCA on the spot. A motion
was made and seconded, and the board voted to
purchase one unit for placement at Autobahn Porsche
on a trial basis.
Bill’s second proposal was for a portable flagpole
which can support two 3-ft by 5-ft flags to identify Region
gatherings. The poles extend to about 20 feet and
collapse to 44 inches for transportation, with a cost of
$200 for the stand, pole, and flags. A motion was made
and seconded, and the board voted to purchase it.
The third proposal was to update the Maverick Region
logo. The current logo seems dated, too busy, and
has fine details that do not always reproduce well. He
presented several ideas to the group. The board agreed
that we are ready for a logo change, but need time to
finalize a design. A motion was made and seconded to
update the region logo, and the vote passed.
Jim Falgout announced Carey Spreen as Maverick of
the Month. Meeting adjourned slightly after 9:00 pm.

Five Speed Chatter: Spoiled Rotten
By Ash Seidl-Staley
Photos Courtesy of the Author
ne of the greatest moments of my life happened
on February 4, 2015. On that day,
my wife and I were graciously permitted
to bring our son, Christian Hans, into this
world! From the moment that his eyes first opened, I
knew that he would be spoiled rotten. Man was I right!
In his defense, Christian is luckier than most kids. He
currently has five grandparents and four great grandparents,
all living, and all eager to buy him toys and
clothes. As any parent knows, grandparents are notorious
for spoiling grandchildren. So far, Christian’s
grandparents are no different.
One of Christian’s “big ticket” Christmas gifts this
past year was a 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 Power Wheel. As
most Mavericks know, my first car was a walker buggy
with a Porsche decal slapped on the front of it. Christian
seems to have had an upgrade. And I would be
lying if I said that I wasn’t jealous -- I mean, come on,
look at it! This ginormous power wheel, which we have
yet to name, looks phenomenal, has tons of standard
features, and even comes with its own working FM radio!
This beautiful, but not so little, plastic sports car
lights up and makes racing noises when the steering
wheel is turned. It comes with paddle shifters that
also make noises that mimic the sounds our cars make
upshifting and downshifting. The Porsche also comes
with three modes of driving: Forward Drive, Reverse,
and Sport Mode. Sport Mode is achieved after removing
the governing pin on the gear shift, and placing
the shifter into the “S” position. This change, though
slight, increases the top speed of the Power Wheel to
just over 5 mph! This is exactly double of what the regular
Forward Drive mode will achieve.
Although Christian is too small
for this particular toy right now, it
seems as though many of his other
toys will carry the Porsche brand
as well. When I was a young boy
my Porsche collection was limited
to die cast models, plastic models,
posters, books, and maybe a
remote controlled vehicle. For
Christian and his generation,
there are multiple ways for him to
get his Porsche fix. On top of everything that was available
when I was a kid, Porsche has currently partnered
with numerous video game franchises, cell phone app
developers, the Playmobile Company, Fisher Price toys,
VTECH Go Go vehicle design, and even the all-powerful
Lego! With the very successful racing careers of
the 919 and the Flying Lizards, Porsche has expanded
its market directly into kids’ toy boxes, hopefully, with
more designs and partnerships to come.
I can’t honestly say who is more excited about
Porsche toys, me or my son. Considering he is only
16 months old, it is most likely myself. But, come on I
can’t be the only one, right?
Play on Mavs!

Mary Coney: Remembering a Good Friend
By Joe McGlohen, Region Safety Chair
Photo Courtesy of the Author
s a person, Mary Coney had warmth and a
sense of humor. She was down to earth and
loved motorsports, as well as the friends she
shared that love with, including Maverick
Region. She was a delight to be around and to work
with. She loved music, especially “oldie” car music. She
once brought a bunch of CDs filled with her “Favorite
Car Music” to an event and shared her favorites with
all the workers (and me). She was also crazy about her
Mary was active as an SCCA corner worker for many
years preceding our Drivers’ Education program, and
as our DE program took shape, she started as a corner
worker for us but soon became our “Control.”
Many of you may not even recognize her name, but
if you participated in any of our DEs or Club Racing
events from 2002 forward, you would remember her
calm golden voice from the tower on the PA system
keeping things moving, thanking sponsors, and making
sure folks knew where and when they needed to
be. She did all of that, and all the while she was “Control,”
the nerve center of the event, coordinating the
corner workers, rescue, EMTs, and car recovery folks.
This included juggling the schedule when weather, car
breakdown recoveries, or other incidents that played
havoc with our usual timetable. And in the midst of all
of that chaos, she kept the DE staff informed and got
their input when appropriate. After all the dust settled,
she never hesitated to tell us what she needed to make
things better, or to offer a differing opinion about procedures
and policy that might improve our process.
From my perspective as the Safety Chair during several
of those years, I always felt at ease when Mary was
(in) CONTROL at our events. Several times I received
similar feedback from the Club Race National Steward
at our Club Races.
She will be truly missed and long remembered.
Hope Shelter Update: Hope’s Helpers
By Bill Middleton
Photo Courtesy of the Author
ne of the issues that the
Hope Shelter, MRPCA’s
deals with regularly is
maintenance and upkeep issues
of the building and its equipment.
While the building itself has done
very well over the years, typical
“wear and tear” items are a constant
issue – and financial drain –
One of the unfortunate issues
that Hope deals with somewhat
frequently is theft by their clients.
While at first one may wonder why
this issue even occurs, when Hope
has provided their clients with a safe
haven from a difficult situation, the
reality is that, in many cases, Hope
is a significantly better physical environment
than the one they have
come from – and as a result, some
clients, out of significant need, will
take things they need with them
when they leave. Items like bedding,
towels, silverware, dishes, and
Bill Middleton installing a hair dryer
so forth have all been subject to
removal. Some items and issues can
be easily resolved; Hope no longer
uses regular dishes and silverware,
it’s all disposable paper plates,
plastic cups, and plastic silverware.
Cooking utensils (clients cook for
themselves) are as inexpensive
as possible, as are pots, pans, and
other cookware. Other items have
been replaced either with a type of
item that isn’t likely to be removed,
or is inexpensive enough that it’s
not a great burden to replace.
One of the more difficult issues
has been hair dryers – they seem to
fly out the door on wings of their
own, according to one of the volunteers!
So, after some investigations
and research, it was decided that
the hair dryer issue would be resolved
by installing hotel-type permanent
wall-mounted units. Several
units were reviewed, discussed
with Hope director Lisa Huffaker,
and a Sunbeam model was selected.
On the last weekend of April, Bill
Middleton and Ron Colbert went
out to Hope Shelter and installed
the new dryers. They were received
with much appreciation by both
the Hope staff and the residents,
as now they were not only theft
proof, but high enough on the wall
that they were out of the reach of
Also, while there, some other
maintenance items were taken
care of, including replacing a dead
ceiling fan in one of the larger
bedrooms, some fence repairs,
some basic door hardware screw
tightening and aligning on some
doors, and checking the side yard
All in all, a very enjoyable and

Ten Years of Hope:
House 10th Anniversary
This December, the Hope Shelter
celebrates ten years since the
dedication and opening of their new
home, the Huffaker-Hughes Hope
The Hope House is the end
result of years of planning, dedication,
fund raising, and just plain
hard work by a dedicated group
of Porschephiles in response to the
deteriorating and difficult conditions
that, until that time, had been the
original Hope Shelter.
While the history of its conception,
construction, and completion
is long, the conclusion of the story
is short and sweet. Thanks to the efforts,
contributions, and hard work
of the Maverick Region, what could
have been a tragic ending instead
became a beautiful beginning: a
brand new shelter, built to serve
the needs of those most vulnerable
– battered and abused women and
children – for decades to come.
As we prepare to celebrate this
milestone, it is most important to
acknowledge and remember that
this wonderful place would not have
gone from just a dream on paper to
bricks and mortar without its most
essential component – YOU – all our
fellow Mavericks – who, through
your continuing generosity over the
years at everything from charity laps

Autocrossing: Your Porsche is already prepared!

odern Porsches take virtually no preparation
for autocross. Locally, the Equipe
Rapide/PCA classes P1 to P3 are the same
as the PCA National Small Region Showroom
Stock Classes S1 to S3 (all ten classes are listed
If your car is not listed for some reason,
we can sort that out at the event.) If you own a
normally-maintained Porsche, you are ready to arrive,
empty loose contents, sign up, put on temporary masking
tape numbers and class on the doors, go through a
short tech line, and attend the drivers’ meeting. If you
are a novice or unsure of activities, there is always a novice
course walk before the driving starts, where much
knowledge and experience will be shared. Be sure to
arrive by 8 am. If you like “cars and coffee” events, autocross
is like that, but the cars get driven too. You don’t
need any special pre-tech, brake pads, or tires. As a
matter of fact, most cars just run on high performance
street tires, like the ones that came on your Porsche.
About 100 cars will be entered in each event. You
must work part of the event in order for your timed
runs to be counted, but this generally means watching
other competitors drive the course and occasionally
picking up cones that they knock down. Depending on
how many drivers are entered, there are either three or
four run sessions, called “heats.” In a three-heat event,
you take your timed runs in one heat, work another
heat, and rest in the third, not necessarily in that order.
In a four-heat event, you drive one heat and work one
heat in the morning, then repeat that in the afternoon.
You will get six to eight timed runs, and can request
a coach to help you find the course or take you for a
few rides to show you what it is all about. Many novices
like those rides, because the whole idea of autocross becomes
very clear very
quickly. Times are very
similar to the lap time
at a time trial event.
The biggest difference
is that you will likely
run the entire course
in second gear, rarely
exceeding 65 mph,
but aggressively accelerating,
steering through the
as fast as you can.
Many people are so
focused they have difficulty remembering to breathe,
but almost everyone crosses the finish line with a smile
on their face, ready to go again. So you go back to grid
and have a 10 to 15 minute wait before you’re up again.
The event is typically over by about 3:30 pm, the
course is picked up, and the trophy / awards presentation
ends the day. This is when the cash award payouts

t was a beautiful
morning on May 14 with
temperatures in the
70s and partly cloudy.
The drive started at the Walmart
Supercenter in Lake Worth. There
were 81 Porsches and 130 people
at the event. It was hard not to
notice the spectators in awe of this
Porsche mass. Our drive would take
us 105 miles through the towns of
Lake Worth, Weatherford, Hudson
Oaks, Rainbow, completing the
drive in Granbury at Revolver
Brewing. As usual there was a good
mix of Porsches, from a 944 to a
Martini-themed 918 supercar! The
excitement could be easily seen on
all our faces.
1974 Ice Green Metallic 911
Tom started the drivers meeting
and stressed the importance of the
rules as well as his safety concerns
on the route. I was pleased to get in
the third group, because it meant
I had some more time to look at a
1974 Ice Green Metallic 911. This
car was AWESOME! The driver
was quick to tell me that it was not
a show car and its purpose was to
be driven often! He had upgraded
the engine to a 3.2 liter. His wife
then told me about their other
911, a 1971, which has a 2.7 liter
engine. She then explained that it
requires a little more fiddling. She
had a smile from ear to ear as she
talked about their other 911. They
were both true Porsche enthusiasts
for sure. The only thing on my
mind was that I wanted to hear that
engine, but it was time to line up.
While on the drive, there were
a few areas where people gathered
on the side of the road watching all
the Porsches go by. These are not
just drives; they are like rolling car
shows, with spirited driving as the
Starting at the Lake Worth Walmart
While at the rest stop I heard
an air cooled engine. The sound
ended up being the Ice Green
911 that I wanted to hear earlier.
It pulled out onto the road solo.
The driver growled through the
gears as he reached cruising speed.
Everyone at the rest stop seemed to
pause to take in the sound of the
lone air cooled flat six in perfect
tune. Another 997 S caught my
eye and I decided to take a closer
look. The owners were very excited
about their car and noted that it was
their first Porsche. When leaving
the rest stop I got to open it up a
little (while obeying the traffic laws
of course). The sun was mostly out

enjoy all four of their brews. I ran

time I was having. Tom and I then
talked about how great all the

volunteering for PCA, his old

that take place in the Hill Country.
Upon departure, I had to take one
last stroll through the parking lot.
It’s always a sight to see this many

First Porsches: Two That Got Away
By Bill Bradley
Photos Courtesy of Creative Commons
n 1962 I purchased my first Porsche. It
would not be the last. This first one was a
356B coupe, blue with red interior. I purchased
the car from a Chevrolet dealer in
Morristown, New Jersey. Morristown is home to the
Seeing Eye, a group that trains guide dogs for the blind.
Almost any time of day you could see people walking
their German Shepherds around the town square.
At the time I was
in between years of
college. Two friends
of mine also bought
Porsches, both late
1950s models. The
three of us searched
out unfinished housing
and raced our cars
around the roads.
We were fortunate
that none of us ever got caught.
Around this same time we discovered Lime Rock
and Watkins Glen. We drove to as many of the racing
events we could. We saw many of the racing luminaries.
The names that stick my memory were Mark Donohue
and Peter Revson. But most of all I remember the übersportsman
Briggs Cunningham orbiting Watkins Glen
in his helicopter, watching his entrant in the race below.
As the year wore on and school time approached,
the three of us went our separate ways. I was working
for a civil engineer and land surveyor. His son Curt and
I had palled around some, and Curt convinced me to
join him in attending college in East Tennessee. That
September we packed our things into the Porsche and
Culture shock awaited me. The state was dry. Television
consisted of three channels: wrestling, country
music, and religious programming. I would first see
Dolly Parton on the Porter Wagoner television show.
Porter sported this . . . let’s call it . . . Technicolor suit.
I saw Teddy and Doyle, the Wilburn Brothers, who had
their own show. Porter and Dolly were in the major
leagues; Teddy and Doyle were in the minors.
Wrestling, pronounced “wrastlin’,” was obviously
highly fake but also highly entertaining. I remember
a guy name Antonio Rocco who bounced around the
ring like a big rubber ball. Most of the other wrastlers
were glandular case hillbilly types in bib overalls.
I pledged a fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon. One of my
duties was to procure liquor for our weekend house
parties. This meant driving the 52 miles to Abingdon,
Virginia, to the package stores that the dotted the state
line. Every Friday, after classes, I would head north with
a list of requirements from the full-fledged fraternity
brothers. Most favored pint bottles. A few had flasks
so it was fifths or quarts for them. Never mind if I was
stopped by the cops or the alcoholic beverage control
boys. They could confiscate my car. But I was a lowly
pledge. Do it and like it.
I was never chased. But I still fancied myself as a
Thunder Road bootlegger personified. I had even
been to Ashville, North Carolina to be shown the coal
yard where movie actor Robert Mitchum jumped out of
a window to evade the revenuers.
House parties were always fun. The dance craze was
the Alligator, which involved drunkenly sprawling on
the floor and flailing one’s arms in a swimming motion.
The preferred song for the Alligator was Double
Shot of My Baby’s Love by the Swinging Medallions,
a not-ready-for-Carnegie-Hall group. For the record, I
became the vice-president of the Gamma Chapter of
Sigma Phi Epsilon and could tell others to go on booze
runs to Virginia.
School progressed. I still had the Porsche. I was entering
my senior year in the Reserve Officers’ Training
Corps, or ROTC. I come from a military family so my
goal was to be become a Regular Army officer. This
entailed becoming a Distinguished Military Graduate.
This came true, and after graduation I sold the Porsche
and was off to Viet Nam.
Nobody wants to
hear war stories, so I’ll
fast-forward to the end
of my second tour. I
ultimately returned to
Fort Sill, Oklahoma,
and there came another
Porsche. This time it
was a 1971 914-6. (This,
of course, is the second
car I should have held onto.) I enjoyed the 914. But
this was Oklahoma, hellishly hot, and the Porsche was
(Flash forward: today
I drive a 2006 911 Cabriolet,
sedate by Porsche
standards, but we are
talking many years and a
waterfall of Stella Artois
over the spillway.)
(Flash back to Oklahoma.) I’m still in the army. I
purchased a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle to com-
mute from my apartment to Officer Career Courses at
Fort Sill. Helmets were mandatory, so early each morning
several us arrived dressed in Class A uniforms and
dutifully wearing our helmets.
The Bonneville led me to a group of locals and
Army types who spent their weekends tearing around
Lake Ellsworth on dirt bikes. I went through several before
settling on a 360cc Husqvarna. Its 46 horsepower
proved to be my undoing. I crashed the bike, broke my
left collarbone, and spent the rest of the hot Oklahoma
summer in a body cast.
About the time I got out of the body cast, I met Judy,
who has been my wife for nearly 40 years. I needed
something less dangerous to drive, so I purchased a
new 1972 Corvette. It had the 454 cu. In. engine, but by
this time Chevy had fallen prey to emission standards
so the car only managed a puny 270 horsepower.
Army life was quickly losing its charms, so I resigned
my Captain’s commission. Judy and I were off to graduate
school at the University of Oklahoma. We both took
jobs to work our way through school.
Eventually the company I worked for transferred us
to Texas. The years passed. We moved from Keller to
Lewisville to Flower Mound. Last year another Porsche
arrived. We became Mavericks and we continue to enjoy
the friends we’ve met and roads we’ve traveled.

Maverick Region Logo: Time For An Update?
By Bill Orr
Images by Bill Orr
he Maverick Region was born in November
1962 at the Fiesta Best Western Motel in
Arlington, Texas. The official charter from
the national officers of PCA was issued on
December 24th, 1962. On
April 5th, 1963 Geoffery
Hamilton Horsfall submitted
a design for the first
Maverick Region logo, a
design that has now been
in use for over 50 years.
Logos are intended
to be the “face” of a company:
They are graphical
displays of a company’s
unique identity, and through colors, fonts and images
they provide essential information about a company
that allows customers to identify with the company’s
Unfortunately, the most unique element of the original
design is overlooked by most because of a change
made years ago. The replica of a Porsche steering
wheel in black and nickel finish was changed by removing
the Porsche crest and replacing it with a gold star.
The problem is that the white star was supposed to represent
the Lone Star State and now there are two stars.
In addition, the original logo was designed before the
newsletter, before the website, and before the Goodie
Store. As a result it is technically problematic. With its
layered elements and fine lines, it does not scale well.
The two places you see this most is in the newsletter
and on Goodie Store items. In the newsletter it does
not scale down very well at all. On embroidered items
from the Goodie Store, the logo has to be sewn unusually
large in order to see all of the detail and fine
lines. Another issue is that the word “Texas” is written
in white, and because it is superimposed over the white
star, the “x” tends to get lost.
Being over 50 years old, the original logo is very dated.
The font used is very plain and lacks style. There is
nothing that visually connects the emblem to Porsche
or to the national Porsche Club. Fifty years ago, Porsche
only sold sports cars. Today they sell sports cars, SUVs,
sedans, and even bicycles. In that time, both Porsche
and the Porsche Club have updated their logos. It’s
time for the Maverick Region do so as well, because the
original logo just does not meet the needs of the region
today or in the future. So at the June 1, 2016 Board
meeting, the Maverick Region Board voted to change
the logo upon the approval of a new design.
In designing a new logo our mission was to design
something that reflected the region we serve. With
144 different regions in PCA, having a logo that communicates
where you are from is important at national
events. We also set out with a specific set of objectives:
• It needs to be something the members of the
organization can proudly stand behind.
• It needs to look good at all sizes and on all forms
• It needs to appeal to people of all ages.
• It needs to appeal to potential members, donators,
• It needs to be modern, but not rely too heavily
• It needs to have a visual connection to both the
national Porsche Club and Porsche logos.
• It needs to be strong enough to stand next to the
national Porsche Club and Porsche logo and not
look out of place.
So we came up with a new PROPOSED design that
kept the original concept of the Texas Flag and the
Lone Star State. It uses a wheel and tire instead of a
steering wheel, but we added the Porsche Horse to tie
it to the Porsche Crest and to the PCA National logo.
The single STAR over a red,
white, and blue background represents
the State of Texas Flag.
Adding the Horse from the
Porsche crest, and the word Texas
ties the logo back to Porsche
as well as the Maverick Region.
When most people think of Maverick
and Texas they think of the
NBA basketball team, the Dallas
Mavericks, whose mascot is a
The black ring with white text
represents a tire. The star inside
a circle represents a wheel. The
red and blue are like brake calipers
showing through the wheel.
Wheel and tire dimensions have
changed over time, but unlike steering wheels, they are
basically the same as in years past.
The end result is something that not only meets all of our objectives but it is also an evolution of the original
If you now look at the new PROPOSED Maverick region logo and compare it to the Porsche Crest and the PCA
logo, I think you will agree that the new logo not only stands on its own, but it complements the Porsche Crest and
the PCA logo much better than the old one.
The Maverick Region Board is looking for feedback on the new PROPOSED logo and is accepting any and all
other design ideas. Please submit those to Bill Orr via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

enjoyed an inspiring
and informational tour
of the Native Texas Park
at the Bush Presidential Center in
Dallas in April. Hertha Hughes, a
Tub Club (and Maverick) member
who is a docent at the Bush Library,
initiated and organized the event.
She not only provided the club
with a wealth of information on the
environmentally conscious theme
of the park, but, since Tub Club
members don’t have much of a
desire to be pelted by rain and hail
while looking at wildflowers, had to
reschedule the tour repeatedly due
to threatening weather forecasts.
Hertha identifies various wildflowers
for Tub Club members
The 15-acre park is divided up
into three ecosystems: Blackland
Prairie, Post Oak Savannah, and
Cross Timbers Forest. It is unique
among presidential libraries, and
the park’s native Texas landscape
played a key role in qualifying the
presidential center as a platinum
Hertha discusses the purpose
of bioswales in the park’s water
level LEED (Leadership in Energy
and Environmental Design), the
first presidential library to achieve
this distinction. To reduce the
need for irrigation, the topography
of the site was changed from a flat
area to one that gradually sloped
downward 27 feet. A 252-gallon
cistern is located at the lowest level
of the park, and all water percolating
through the park is eventually
captured there and pumped out to
take care of the needs of the landscape.
The cistern, however, is only part
of the water conservation system
used in the park. You will also find a
stone sweep, which slowly expresses
rainwater, and bioswales, which use
plants to filter storm water runoff.
This water management system was
designed to provide 40% of the water
needed for the landscape, but
in actuality, it has far exceeded the
original goals of the plan.
We strolled on wandering trails,
which snaked their way through
hillsides covered with a kaleidoscope
of color. Many varieties of
wildflowers, grasses, bushes, and
trees were blooming with all the
enthusiasm spring entails. There
are 53 different wildflower species
represented in the park along with
37 types of grasses, 34 shrub species,
and 31 species of native trees.
Although it looked as though we
were walking through pristine areas
untouched by human hands, an
award-winning landscape architect,
Michael Van Valkenburgh, carefully
designed the park, and the result
of his work was breathtaking! The
self-sustaining and environmentally
conscious aspect of his design is a
guide for all of us to follow. It was
an enjoyable and educational day.

Autocross 4: Mineral Wells Mirror-Cross
By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
he fourth event of the Equipe Rapide/PCA
Autocross season was held at the expansive
Mineral Ring site west of the Metroplex on
Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. This site
is so large it makes it possible to run two courses sideby-side,
in what is known as a Mirror-Cross format. Drivers
lined up for a drag-race style start (complete with
Christmas Tree lights) on the left and right courses
and departed simultaneously on parallel straightaways,
where many cars ran hard in
third gear before they turned
away from each other to run
alone on their own course. After
the finish, the cars traded
sides and lined up again to
run the opposite course. Each
car got six timed runs in the
morning and six more timed
runs in the afternoon. Best
time on each course was all
dual driver cars line up
Seventy-four drivers ran

fierce contests in classes and for overall honors, including
Performance Index (PAX) cash payouts.
Fred Stubbs and Mike Syler pitted Boxster Spyder
and 997S respectively against each other in class P3.
Fred was also first in the Porsche PAX cash payouts at
this event on one of the courses. Mark Schnoerr won
PAX on the other side. So far there have been four different
winners of the top payout this season.
Class P4 saw the Ed Mayo blue and orange 911S
and the Sigrid Schnoerr Lime Green 914 2.0, both
two-driver cars, and Marissa Moore in her 911T, hard
at work. Mark Schnoerr was quickest in class on both
courses, while Ed and Sigrid split second quickest on
both courses. Overall combined for the day, the order
was Mark, Ed, Sigrid, Julie and Marissa.
Erik Holt and Doug Edney ran uncontested in their
own classes but were also competing for the PAX payouts.
Sue Crimm shared her 924S with Carey Spreen in
class P9. Sue likes the power steering on this car better
than the unassisted steering on Carey’s 911SC in the
fast slalom sections.
Next event: Sunday, July 24, at beautiful Lone Star

PRINTER OF SLIPSTREAM SINCE 1982
Service & Maintenance
Around the Bend...
By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor
ith all of the rainy days in May through early
June, I was reminded to re-read one of my
favorite driving stories, The Art of Racing in
the Rain by Garth Stein. If you’ve not read
this one, or even if this is also a re-read for you, reliving
the story of Enzo and Denny is always uplifting, especially
since Denny hones his driving skills in a Porsche.
This is a heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately
uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope.
The Art of Racing in the Rain is a captivating look at the
wonders and absurdities of human life…as only a dog
could tell it. Now that the weather has dried out a bit,
you may have to wait for the sprinklers to come on to
get you in the right mood!
We recently completed a 17 day road trip in our
Boxster S through the Southwest and up the West
coast. The 2014 Boxster S is now 25 months old and
has 20,000 miles on it. There is no question we feel
we’re getting full enjoyment out of our Porsche ownership
investment with each ensuing road trip!
Of course that got me to thinking about what is
commonly referred to as “The Porsche Principle”. Attributed
more than 65 years ago to Ferry Porsche, the
quoted principle is “In the beginning, I looked around
and could not find the car I’d been dreaming of: a
small, lightweight sports car that uses energy efficiently.
So I decided to build it myself.”
In our visit to the recently renovated Petersen Car
Museum in Los Angeles, that Porsche Principle was
highly visible in their engineering history display area.
Ferry’s dream of the perfect sports car has always
driven Porsche – throughout their history
– with every concept, every development and every
model. The underlying principle is to always
get the most out of everything. At Porsche, form
always follows function.
So, as Maverick Region members, we enjoy the
Porsche Principle in many different ways. We have
members who simply enjoy the pure form, design, even
art, of the Porsche that sits most often in their garage.
As collectors of art, viewing their Porsche satisfies an
Other members like to display their Porsche in
Concours events, putting minimal miles on it to lessen
the odds of the occasional road blemish occurring. Detailing
and paying close attention to the cleanliness of
every surface, inside and out, provides a close connection
with the form and function of their Porsche.
Still others view the ultimate enjoyment of both form
and function of their Porsche in the regular exercise of
it. These members subscribe to the Porsche credo of “A
Porsche is no ordinary sports car, but a sports car for
everyday driving, whatever the weather”. Chips, abrasions,
and faded paint begin to form the patina of the
Porsche from the first day of ownership. I imagine that
quite a few of our members are members of this club,
mostly by using their Porsche as a daily driver, but also
perhaps by taking regular road trips like we enjoy in
that Porsche investment.
Wherever you fall in The Porsche Principle continuum,
rest assured that you have many Maverick members
right beside you. That alone is a great reason to be
active in our many club events each month. I hope to
see you soon at one of our upcoming events listed in
our club calendar on page 1.
For the August issue of Slipstream, our Photo of the
Month focus will be Porsche cars participating in
PCA and Maverick events. Send your photo
submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post them
on our Maverick Region Porsche Club of
America Facebook group page by July 10.
