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. Optional equipment shown is extra.<br />

It doesn't ask to be idolized. Just driven hard.<br />

While certainly deserving of a special place in your heart, all things being equal, it'd rather be whipping down<br />

an ocean-side road. So we made it easy to want to take it out and drive hard. With a glorious new engine<br />

increased to 3.8 liters of displacement, it gives the driver greater torque for instant, usable power. It also<br />

touts a remarkable 500 horsepower. And it does all this while using less fuel. Add in lightning-fast shifts with<br />

the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), and your urge to drive it will outweigh your desire to worship it.<br />

Porsche. There is no substitute.<br />

The new 911 Turbo<br />

Discover how efficiency demands performance.<br />

Shifting Gears: Maverick Region Summer Activities<br />

By Jim Falgout, Region President<br />

irst gear: June was an active month with<br />

F<br />

Autos in the Park, PCA Porsche Parade and<br />

various social activities. Now <strong>July</strong> comes<br />

and the activities are reduced, due to the<br />

anticipated summer heat and various vacations. We will<br />

not have a board meeting this month.<br />

Second gear: Speaking of board meetings, the June<br />

board meeting included a presentation by member Bill<br />

Orr on some very interesting concepts for promoting<br />

the Maverick Region at dealerships, as well as ideas<br />

for a new logo. We will be soliciting your opinion on<br />

a few alternatives for our logo. My point really is how<br />

fortunate our club is to have a variety of talents to<br />

contribute to the success of the Maverick Region.<br />

Third gear: As I mentioned above, PCA Porsche<br />

Parade was in June. The Maverick Region had a large<br />

contingent attending and representing Zone 5. If you<br />

did not go this year, try planning on going to one in the<br />

future. You will be definitely enjoy it.<br />

Fourth gear: This is a good time to reflect and<br />

reevaluate. What club activities have you enjoyed? What<br />

club activities would you like to participate in but have<br />

not so far? Your club has a lot to offer.<br />

Of course, I will always encourage you to ask yourself<br />

what can you do to help your club provide these kinds<br />

of experiences for others.<br />


volunteer! You will be glad you did. Just<br />

contact Jim Gallegos at volunteers@<br />

mavpca.org.<br />

Fifth gear: In a previous issue I requested suggestions<br />

for changes to our event in November known as<br />

Founders’ Day (name subject to change). We really<br />

want your input because we want it to be an event that<br />

you would like to participate in and enjoy. So please<br />

send any thoughts, no matter how minor, to either<br />

social@mavpca.org or president@mavpca.org.<br />

Sixth gear: MAV OF THE MONTH<br />

It is great to have members who will help out where<br />

ever they can. One of the most time consuming jobs is<br />

editor of <strong>Slipstream</strong>. We have been fortunate to have a<br />

series of excellent editors which has resulted in our<br />

monthly newsletter receiving several awards. We have a<br />

member who was editor of <strong>Slipstream</strong>, and after handing<br />

over the reins to another volunteer, continues to assist<br />

in the production of the magazine. As was said recently,<br />

he just does not know how to say “no.” Your Mav of the<br />

Month this month is Carey Spreen. Thanks Carey for<br />

all that you do.<br />

What can you do to help<br />

your club provide these kinds<br />

of experiences for others?<br />

Last “Minute” Substitution: June Board Meeting<br />

By Carey Spreen, MRPCA Secretarial Pool June 1, <strong>2016</strong><br />

egion President Jim Falgout<br />

started the meet-<br />

R<br />

ing at 7:00 pm. His first<br />

order of business was to<br />

announce this year’s Nominating<br />

Committee: past Presidents John<br />

Hamilton, James Shoffit, and Mike<br />

Brodigan. Jim also reminded us that<br />

the club is looking for ways to revitalize<br />

Founders’ Day, the Region’s<br />

anniversary celebration. Mark<br />

Schnoerr suggested renaming it the<br />

Holiday Party.<br />

Concours d’Elegance Chair Andy<br />

Kay gave us information about the<br />

Autos in the Park Concours, which<br />

will use four teams of three judges<br />

for scoring, a first for this event.<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> Content Editor Carey<br />

Spreen said that the number of June<br />

issues printed was very close to the<br />

mailing list total, and we’ll need to<br />

increase the print count. Carey and<br />

Jim Falgout discussed a proposal<br />

from Region member Dreanna<br />

Belden, Assistant Dean for External<br />

Relations at UNT. She offered<br />

to digitize our entire <strong>Slipstream</strong><br />

archive, making it searchable to the<br />

word level. The cost to us would<br />

be no more than $6,645.60. After<br />

discussion, a motion was made and<br />

seconded to accept the proposal,<br />

pending a test run to assess quality<br />

and file size. The vote passed.<br />

Social Co-Chair Phyllis Gallegos<br />

announced that this year’s Founders’<br />

Day celebration will be held<br />

Saturday, Nov 5, at the NYLO hotel<br />

in Las Colinas. Bent Tree CC was<br />

unavailable, and NYLO gave us similar<br />

pricing. The Social Committee<br />

has also set a few 2017 dates: the<br />

All Member Party, Jan 28; May at<br />

Mayo’s, May 6; and Founders’ Day,<br />

Nov 4.<br />

Volunteer Chair Jim “Jimmyg”<br />

Gallegos is looking for volunteers<br />

who are interested in helping put<br />

on various club activities. Contact<br />

him at volunteers@mavpca.org for<br />

more information.<br />

Sunday Drive (aka PCA Tours)<br />

Chair Tom Martin recapped the<br />

May drive to Revolver Brewing in<br />

6 <strong>July</strong><br />

Granbury, where 81 cars and 130<br />

people participated, including the<br />

President of the Granbury Chamber<br />

of Commerce, who had recently<br />

purchased a Porsche. Tom noted<br />

that a new member, Mark Pitarresi,<br />

who was present at the meeting, had<br />

expressed interest in volunteering.<br />

Welcome Mark!<br />

Social Co-Chair Tracy Robertson<br />

noted that the Silent Auction, which<br />

is a significant part of Founders’ Day<br />

each year, is organized by the Social<br />

Committee, which also organizes<br />

the banquet itself. The Silent Auction<br />

has become so big that it needs<br />

to be managed by its own group.<br />

Vice President David Robertson<br />

reminded us that official Waiver and<br />

Release forms with black and red<br />

lettering must be used for all events<br />

that involve moving cars. David has<br />

several pads of these forms available<br />

for use at these events.<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> Managing Editor Jim<br />

Hirsch thanked Carey for finishing<br />

up the June issue. He also thanked<br />

all of our content contributors for<br />

continuing to get articles and photos<br />

in before the 10th-of-the-month<br />

deadline.<br />

Tech Session Chair Ed Mullenix<br />

is working with Hans Hoffman at<br />

RAC Performance to put together<br />

a tech session there in September.<br />

More information to come in the<br />

August issue.<br />

Time Trial Chair Travis Howard<br />

recapped the PCA Club Race and<br />

Drivers’ Education event at Circuit<br />

of the Americas in May. There was<br />

a lighter turnout than in past years,<br />

which made grid management<br />

easier, but reduced revenue for<br />

the event. The Time Trial at Mineral<br />

Wells had 30 drivers attend, half<br />

Porsches, half others, which is typical.<br />

The Truxster had ignition problems<br />

but was repaired and put back<br />

into service. Most of our equipment<br />

is getting old (purchased for the<br />

2004 Parade) and may be due for<br />

replacement. Lastly, he may have a<br />

location in Weatherford to store the<br />

Truxster.<br />

Monthly Social Chair Stephanie<br />

Ho said that we had over 60 attendees<br />

at the Wildwood Grill social.<br />

Turnout at Shuck-n-Jive was low<br />

due to the weather. After discussion<br />

it was determined that each venue<br />

has its own cancellation policy, but<br />

if there is no financial commitment,<br />

canceling due to weather is acceptable.<br />

She has locations booked<br />

through the end of this year.<br />

Calendar Boy Brendan Eagan<br />

confirmed that the on-line and <strong>Slipstream</strong><br />

calendars remain in sync.<br />

Remember to send any event date<br />

changes to calendar@mavpca.org.<br />

Rally Co-Chair Don Sebert told us<br />

that the Easter Egg Hunt rally drew<br />

28 cars and was a lot of fun. He and<br />

Co-Chair George Luxbacher are<br />

discussing a rally this summer, and<br />

will definitely be putting on another<br />

Halloween rally in October.<br />

Membership Chair John Hamilton<br />

passed along a note from Drivers’<br />

Education Chair Chris Tabor<br />

that Chris is looking into an “intro<br />

to DE” weekday evening event at<br />

MotorSport Ranch.<br />

Autocross Chair Mark Schoerr<br />

described the Equipe Rapide<br />

Mirror-Cross event held at Mineral<br />

Wells, which was similar to an SCCA<br />

Pro-Solo event. He reminded us that<br />

Equipe Rapide gives cash awards;<br />

Mark, his wife Sigrid, and Fred<br />

Stubbs all received cash payouts.<br />

The next event is at Lone Star Park<br />

on Sunday, <strong>July</strong> 24.<br />

Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh<br />

was able to purchase 1000 Maverick<br />

Region window stickers for $65.<br />

These stickers will be given out at<br />

various region events.<br />

Webmaster Denny Payne is in<br />

discussion with James Shoffit and<br />

Bill Orr about updating the Region<br />

website to make it easier to search,<br />

more mobile-friendly, and to add<br />

the ability for members to post their<br />

own classified ads. Bill noted that<br />

the intent is to make it fit in more<br />

closely with the PCA National website.

Safety Chair Joe McGlohen noted the loss of longtime<br />

race controller Mary Coney on May 13, and told<br />

us that there would be a celebration of her life on June<br />

18. Joe noted that his Safety Chair apprentices are<br />

working out well.<br />

Bill Orr had three proposals for the board. First<br />

was the use of internet-enabled digital photo frames to<br />

promote Maverick Region at various locations. These<br />

devices, which cost about $200 each, can show images<br />

of region activities and include a QR code that allows<br />

prospective members to join PCA on the spot. A motion<br />

was made and seconded, and the board voted to<br />

purchase one unit for placement at Autobahn Porsche<br />

on a trial basis.<br />

Bill’s second proposal was for a portable flagpole<br />

which can support two 3-ft by 5-ft flags to identify Region<br />

gatherings. The poles extend to about 20 feet and<br />

collapse to 44 inches for transportation, with a cost of<br />

$200 for the stand, pole, and flags. A motion was made<br />

and seconded, and the board voted to purchase it.<br />

The third proposal was to update the Maverick Region<br />

logo. The current logo seems dated, too busy, and<br />

has fine details that do not always reproduce well. He<br />

presented several ideas to the group. The board agreed<br />

that we are ready for a logo change, but need time to<br />

finalize a design. A motion was made and seconded to<br />

update the region logo, and the vote passed.<br />

Jim Falgout announced Carey Spreen as Maverick of<br />

the Month. Meeting adjourned slightly after 9:00 pm.<br />

Five Speed Chatter: Spoiled Rotten<br />

By Ash Seidl-Staley<br />

Photos Courtesy of the Author<br />

ne of the greatest moments of my life happened<br />

on February 4, 2015. On that day,<br />

O<br />

my wife and I were graciously permitted<br />

to bring our son, Christian Hans, into this<br />

world! From the moment that his eyes first opened, I<br />

knew that he would be spoiled rotten. Man was I right!<br />

In his defense, Christian is luckier than most kids. He<br />

currently has five grandparents and four great grandparents,<br />

all living, and all eager to buy him toys and<br />

clothes. As any parent knows, grandparents are notorious<br />

for spoiling grandchildren. So far, Christian’s<br />

grandparents are no different.<br />

One of Christian’s “big ticket” Christmas gifts this<br />

past year was a 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 Power Wheel. As<br />

most Mavericks know, my first car was a walker buggy<br />

with a Porsche decal slapped on the front of it. Christian<br />

seems to have had an upgrade. And I would be<br />

lying if I said that I wasn’t jealous -- I mean, come on,<br />

look at it! This ginormous power wheel, which we have<br />

yet to name, looks phenomenal, has tons of standard<br />

features, and even comes with its own working FM radio!<br />

This beautiful, but not so little, plastic sports car<br />

lights up and makes racing noises when the steering<br />

wheel is turned. It comes with paddle shifters that<br />

also make noises that mimic the sounds our cars make<br />

upshifting and downshifting. The Porsche also comes<br />

with three modes of driving: Forward Drive, Reverse,<br />

and Sport Mode. Sport Mode is achieved after removing<br />

the governing pin on the gear shift, and placing<br />

the shifter into the “S” position. This change, though<br />

slight, increases the top speed of the Power Wheel to<br />

just over 5 mph! This is exactly double of what the regular<br />

Forward Drive mode will achieve.<br />

Although Christian is too small<br />

for this particular toy right now, it<br />

seems as though many of his other<br />

toys will carry the Porsche brand<br />

as well. When I was a young boy<br />

my Porsche collection was limited<br />

to die cast models, plastic models,<br />

posters, books, and maybe a<br />

remote controlled vehicle. For<br />

Christian and his generation,<br />

there are multiple ways for him to<br />

get his Porsche fix. On top of everything that was available<br />

when I was a kid, Porsche has currently partnered<br />

with numerous video game franchises, cell phone app<br />

developers, the Playmobile Company, Fisher Price toys,<br />

VTECH Go Go vehicle design, and even the all-powerful<br />

Lego! With the very successful racing careers of<br />

the 919 and the Flying Lizards, Porsche has expanded<br />

its market directly into kids’ toy boxes, hopefully, with<br />

more designs and partnerships to come.<br />

I can’t honestly say who is more excited about<br />

Porsche toys, me or my son. Considering he is only<br />

16 months old, it is most likely myself. But, come on I<br />

can’t be the only one, right?<br />

Play on Mavs!<br />

Christian’s Autos...I wonder if he likes air cooled engines<br />

Mary Coney: Remembering a Good Friend<br />

By Joe McGlohen, Region Safety Chair<br />

Photo Courtesy of the Author<br />

s a person, Mary Coney had warmth and a<br />

A<br />

sense of humor. She was down to earth and<br />

loved motorsports, as well as the friends she<br />

shared that love with, including Maverick<br />

Region. She was a delight to be around and to work<br />

with. She loved music, especially “oldie” car music. She<br />

once brought a bunch of CDs filled with her “Favorite<br />

Car Music” to an event and shared her favorites with<br />

all the workers (and me). She was also crazy about her<br />

grandkids.<br />

Mary was active as an SCCA corner worker for many<br />

years preceding our Drivers’ Education program, and<br />

as our DE program took shape, she started as a corner<br />

worker for us but soon became our “Control.”<br />

Many of you may not even recognize her name, but<br />

if you participated in any of our DEs or Club Racing<br />

events from 2002 forward, you would remember her<br />

calm golden voice from the tower on the PA system<br />

keeping things moving, thanking sponsors, and making<br />

sure folks knew where and when they needed to<br />

be. She did all of that, and all the while she was “Control,”<br />

the nerve center of the event, coordinating the<br />

corner workers, rescue, EMTs, and car recovery folks.<br />

This included juggling the schedule when weather, car<br />

breakdown recoveries, or other incidents that played<br />

havoc with our usual timetable. And in the midst of all<br />

of that chaos, she kept the DE staff informed and got<br />

their input when appropriate. After all the dust settled,<br />

she never hesitated to tell us what she needed to make<br />

things better, or to offer a differing opinion about procedures<br />

and policy that might improve our process.<br />

From my perspective as the Safety Chair during several<br />

of those years, I always felt at ease when Mary was<br />

(in) CONTROL at our events. Several times I received<br />

similar feedback from the Club Race National Steward<br />

at our Club Races.<br />

She will be truly missed and long remembered.<br />


Hope Shelter Update: Hope’s Helpers<br />

By Bill Middleton<br />

Photo Courtesy of the Author<br />

ne of the issues that the<br />

O<br />

Hope Shelter, MRPCA’s<br />

continuing charity,<br />

deals with regularly is<br />

maintenance and upkeep issues<br />

of the building and its equipment.<br />

While the building itself has done<br />

very well over the years, typical<br />

“wear and tear” items are a constant<br />

issue – and financial drain –<br />

for Hope.<br />

One of the unfortunate issues<br />

that Hope deals with somewhat<br />

frequently is theft by their clients.<br />

While at first one may wonder why<br />

this issue even occurs, when Hope<br />

has provided their clients with a safe<br />

haven from a difficult situation, the<br />

reality is that, in many cases, Hope<br />

is a significantly better physical environment<br />

than the one they have<br />

come from – and as a result, some<br />

clients, out of significant need, will<br />

take things they need with them<br />

when they leave. Items like bedding,<br />

towels, silverware, dishes, and<br />

Bill Middleton installing a hair dryer<br />

so forth have all been subject to<br />

removal. Some items and issues can<br />

be easily resolved; Hope no longer<br />

uses regular dishes and silverware,<br />

it’s all disposable paper plates,<br />

plastic cups, and plastic silverware.<br />

Cooking utensils (clients cook for<br />

themselves) are as inexpensive<br />

as possible, as are pots, pans, and<br />

other cookware. Other items have<br />

been replaced either with a type of<br />

item that isn’t likely to be removed,<br />

or is inexpensive enough that it’s<br />

not a great burden to replace.<br />

One of the more difficult issues<br />

has been hair dryers – they seem to<br />

fly out the door on wings of their<br />

own, according to one of the volunteers!<br />

So, after some investigations<br />

and research, it was decided that<br />

the hair dryer issue would be resolved<br />

by installing hotel-type permanent<br />

wall-mounted units. Several<br />

units were reviewed, discussed<br />

with Hope director Lisa Huffaker,<br />

and a Sunbeam model was selected.<br />

On the last weekend of April, Bill<br />

Middleton and Ron Colbert went<br />

out to Hope Shelter and installed<br />

the new dryers. They were received<br />

with much appreciation by both<br />

the Hope staff and the residents,<br />

as now they were not only theft<br />

proof, but high enough on the wall<br />

that they were out of the reach of<br />

smaller kids.<br />

Also, while there, some other<br />

maintenance items were taken<br />

care of, including replacing a dead<br />

ceiling fan in one of the larger<br />

bedrooms, some fence repairs,<br />

some basic door hardware screw<br />

tightening and aligning on some<br />

doors, and checking the side yard<br />

for drainage.<br />

All in all, a very enjoyable and<br />

successful Saturday!<br />

If you are interested in working<br />

with our continuing charity, or<br />

would like to volunteer to help out,<br />

please contact Chris Hamilton, our<br />

Charitable Activities Chair, at<br />

hope@mavpca.org. She would love<br />

to hear from you!<br />

Ten Years of Hope:<br />

Huffaker-Hughes Hope<br />

House 10th Anniversary<br />

This December, the Hope Shelter<br />

celebrates ten years since the<br />

dedication and opening of their new<br />

home, the Huffaker-Hughes Hope<br />

House.<br />

The Hope House is the end<br />

result of years of planning, dedication,<br />

fund raising, and just plain<br />

hard work by a dedicated group<br />

of Porschephiles in response to the<br />

deteriorating and difficult conditions<br />

that, until that time, had been the<br />

original Hope Shelter.<br />

While the history of its conception,<br />

construction, and completion<br />

is long, the conclusion of the story<br />

is short and sweet. Thanks to the efforts,<br />

contributions, and hard work<br />

of the Maverick Region, what could<br />

have been a tragic ending instead<br />

became a beautiful beginning: a<br />

brand new shelter, built to serve<br />

the needs of those most vulnerable<br />

– battered and abused women and<br />

children – for decades to come.<br />

As we prepare to celebrate this<br />

milestone, it is most important to<br />

acknowledge and remember that<br />

this wonderful place would not have<br />

gone from just a dream on paper to<br />

bricks and mortar without its most<br />

essential component – YOU – all our<br />

fellow Mavericks – who, through<br />

your continuing generosity over the<br />

years at everything from charity laps<br />

at DEs to donations of gift cards at<br />

Christmas, made the building of<br />

Hope House a reality.<br />

Please join all of us this year as<br />

we celebrate this milestone achievement,<br />

and keep your eyes open during<br />

this year for special events and<br />

opportunities to help Hope continue<br />

its mission. If you are new to the<br />

Maverick Region, and would like<br />

to learn more about Hope Shelter,<br />

we welcome your interest with open<br />

arms, and encourage you to contact<br />

any Board member for further information.<br />

Autocrossing: Your Porsche is already prepared!<br />

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair<br />

Photos Courtesy of the Author<br />

odern Porsches take virtually no preparation<br />

for autocross. Locally, the Equipe<br />

M<br />

Rapide/PCA classes P1 to P3 are the same<br />

as the PCA National Small Region Showroom<br />

Stock Classes S1 to S3 (all ten classes are listed<br />

here: http://mav.pca.org/Events/Autocross/ERClassification.asp).<br />

If your car is not listed for some reason,<br />

we can sort that out at the event.) If you own a<br />

normally-maintained Porsche, you are ready to arrive,<br />

empty loose contents, sign up, put on temporary masking<br />

tape numbers and class on the doors, go through a<br />

short tech line, and attend the drivers’ meeting. If you<br />

are a novice or unsure of activities, there is always a novice<br />

course walk before the driving starts, where much<br />

knowledge and experience will be shared. Be sure to<br />

arrive by 8 am. If you like “cars and coffee” events, autocross<br />

is like that, but the cars get driven too. You don’t<br />

need any special pre-tech, brake pads, or tires. As a<br />

matter of fact, most cars just run on high performance<br />

street tires, like the ones that came on your Porsche.<br />

About 100 cars will be entered in each event. You<br />

must work part of the event in order for your timed<br />

runs to be counted, but this generally means watching<br />

other competitors drive the course and occasionally<br />

picking up cones that they knock down. Depending on<br />

how many drivers are entered, there are either three or<br />

four run sessions, called “heats.” In a three-heat event,<br />

you take your timed runs in one heat, work another<br />

heat, and rest in the third, not necessarily in that order.<br />

In a four-heat event, you drive one heat and work one<br />

heat in the morning, then repeat that in the afternoon.<br />

You will get six to eight timed runs, and can request<br />

a coach to help you find the course or take you for a<br />

few rides to show you what it is all about. Many novices<br />

like those rides, because the whole idea of autocross becomes<br />

very clear very<br />

quickly. Times are very<br />

similar to the lap time<br />

at a time trial event.<br />

The biggest difference<br />

is that you will likely<br />

run the entire course<br />

in second gear, rarely<br />

exceeding 65 mph,<br />

but aggressively accelerating,<br />

braking and<br />

steering through the<br />

pylon-marked course<br />

as fast as you can.<br />

Many people are so<br />

focused they have difficulty remembering to breathe,<br />

but almost everyone crosses the finish line with a smile<br />

on their face, ready to go again. So you go back to grid<br />

and have a 10 to 15 minute wait before you’re up again.<br />

The event is typically over by about 3:30 pm, the<br />

course is picked up, and the trophy / awards presentation<br />

ends the day. This is when the cash award payouts<br />

also happen.<br />

Review the schedule<br />

on page 20 and pick an<br />

autocross for a low-risk<br />

way to enjoy your Porsche<br />

and some very interesting<br />

people. You will learn excellent<br />

car control skills<br />

that will benefit you in<br />

day-to-day driving, as well<br />

as skills you can count on<br />

if you decide to try Time<br />

Saturday Drive Recap: B-Double-E-Double-R-U-N<br />

By Mark Pitarresi<br />

Photos by Bill Orr and the Author*<br />

*<br />

t was a beautiful<br />

I<br />

morning on May 14 with<br />

temperatures in the<br />

70s and partly cloudy.<br />

The drive started at the Walmart<br />

Supercenter in Lake Worth. There<br />

were 81 Porsches and 130 people<br />

at the event. It was hard not to<br />

notice the spectators in awe of this<br />

Porsche mass. Our drive would take<br />

us 105 miles through the towns of<br />

Lake Worth, Weatherford, Hudson<br />

Oaks, Rainbow, completing the<br />

drive in Granbury at Revolver<br />

Brewing. As usual there was a good<br />

mix of Porsches, from a 944 to a<br />

Martini-themed 918 supercar! The<br />

excitement could be easily seen on<br />

all our faces.<br />

1974 Ice Green Metallic 911<br />

Tom started the drivers meeting<br />

and stressed the importance of the<br />

rules as well as his safety concerns<br />

on the route. I was pleased to get in<br />

the third group, because it meant<br />

I had some more time to look at a<br />

1974 Ice Green Metallic 911. This<br />

car was AWESOME! The driver<br />

was quick to tell me that it was not<br />

a show car and its purpose was to<br />

be driven often! He had upgraded<br />

the engine to a 3.2 liter. His wife<br />

then told me about their other<br />

911, a 1971, which has a 2.7 liter<br />

engine. She then explained that it<br />

requires a little more fiddling. She<br />

had a smile from ear to ear as she<br />

talked about their other 911. They<br />

were both true Porsche enthusiasts<br />

for sure. The only thing on my<br />

mind was that I wanted to hear that<br />

engine, but it was time to line up.<br />

14 <strong>July</strong><br />

While on the drive, there were<br />

a few areas where people gathered<br />

on the side of the road watching all<br />

the Porsches go by. These are not<br />

just drives; they are like rolling car<br />

shows, with spirited driving as the<br />

theme!<br />

Starting at the Lake Worth Walmart<br />

While at the rest stop I heard<br />

an air cooled engine. The sound<br />

ended up being the Ice Green<br />

911 that I wanted to hear earlier.<br />

It pulled out onto the road solo.<br />

The driver growled through the<br />

gears as he reached cruising speed.<br />

Everyone at the rest stop seemed to<br />

pause to take in the sound of the<br />

lone air cooled flat six in perfect<br />

tune. Another 997 S caught my<br />

eye and I decided to take a closer<br />

look. The owners were very excited<br />

about their car and noted that it was<br />

their first Porsche. When leaving<br />

the rest stop I got to open it up a<br />

little (while obeying the traffic laws<br />

of course). The sun was mostly out<br />

The requisite rear view image<br />

Members enjoyed great driving roads<br />

by this time and it made for some<br />

good scenic country driving for the<br />

last part of the drive.<br />

The brewery had live music<br />

(The Jenna Clark Band) and it was<br />

a great atmosphere! I was not<br />

familiar with Revolver and did<br />

enjoy all four of their brews. I ran<br />

The group arrives safely for some<br />

good times at Revolver Brewing<br />

into Tom and told him what a good<br />

time I was having. Tom and I then<br />

talked about how great all the<br />

members are in the PCA club,<br />

volunteering for PCA, his old<br />

Porsches, and some of the drives<br />

that take place in the Hill Country.<br />

Upon departure, I had to take one<br />

last stroll through the parking lot.<br />

It’s always a sight to see this many<br />

Porsches in one place!


First Porsches: Two That Got Away<br />

By Bill Bradley<br />

16 <strong>July</strong><br />

356B Coupe<br />

n 1962 I purchased my first Porsche. It<br />

I<br />

would not be the last. This first one was a<br />

356B coupe, blue with red interior. I purchased<br />

the car from a Chevrolet dealer in<br />

Morristown, New Jersey. Morristown is home to the<br />

Seeing Eye, a group that trains guide dogs for the blind.<br />

Almost any time of day you could see people walking<br />

their German Shepherds around the town square.<br />

At the time I was<br />

in between years of<br />

college. Two friends<br />

of mine also bought<br />

Porsches, both late<br />

1950s models. The<br />

three of us searched<br />

out unfinished housing<br />

developments<br />

and raced our cars<br />

around the roads.<br />

We were fortunate<br />

that none of us ever got caught.<br />

Around this same time we discovered Lime Rock<br />

and Watkins Glen. We drove to as many of the racing<br />

events we could. We saw many of the racing luminaries.<br />

The names that stick my memory were Mark Donohue<br />

and Peter Revson. But most of all I remember the übersportsman<br />

Briggs Cunningham orbiting Watkins Glen<br />

in his helicopter, watching his entrant in the race below.<br />

As the year wore on and school time approached,<br />

the three of us went our separate ways. I was working<br />

for a civil engineer and land surveyor. His son Curt and<br />

I had palled around some, and Curt convinced me to<br />

join him in attending college in East Tennessee. That<br />

September we packed our things into the Porsche and<br />

headed south.<br />

Culture shock awaited me. The state was dry. Television<br />

consisted of three channels: wrestling, country<br />

music, and religious programming. I would first see<br />

Dolly Parton on the Porter Wagoner television show.<br />

Porter sported this . . . let’s call it . . . Technicolor suit.<br />

I saw Teddy and Doyle, the Wilburn Brothers, who had<br />

their own show. Porter and Dolly were in the major<br />

leagues; Teddy and Doyle were in the minors.<br />

Wrestling, pronounced “wrastlin’,” was obviously<br />

highly fake but also highly entertaining. I remember<br />

a guy name Antonio Rocco who bounced around the<br />

ring like a big rubber ball. Most of the other wrastlers<br />

were glandular case hillbilly types in bib overalls.<br />

I pledged a fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon. One of my<br />

duties was to procure liquor for our weekend house<br />

parties. This meant driving the 52 miles to Abingdon,<br />

Virginia, to the package stores that the dotted the state<br />

line. Every Friday, after classes, I would head north with<br />

a list of requirements from the full-fledged fraternity<br />

brothers. Most favored pint bottles. A few had flasks<br />

so it was fifths or quarts for them. Never mind if I was<br />

stopped by the cops or the alcoholic beverage control<br />

boys. They could confiscate my car. But I was a lowly<br />

pledge. Do it and like it.<br />

I was never chased. But I still fancied myself as a<br />

Thunder Road bootlegger personified. I had even<br />

been to Ashville, North Carolina to be shown the coal<br />

yard where movie actor Robert Mitchum jumped out of<br />

a window to evade the revenuers.<br />

House parties were always fun. The dance craze was<br />

the Alligator, which involved drunkenly sprawling on<br />

the floor and flailing one’s arms in a swimming motion.<br />

The preferred song for the Alligator was Double<br />

Shot of My Baby’s Love by the Swinging Medallions,<br />

a not-ready-for-Carnegie-Hall group. For the record, I<br />

became the vice-president of the Gamma Chapter of<br />

Sigma Phi Epsilon and could tell others to go on booze<br />

runs to Virginia.<br />

School progressed. I still had the Porsche. I was entering<br />

my senior year in the Reserve Officers’ Training<br />

Corps, or ROTC. I come from a military family so my<br />

goal was to be become a Regular Army officer. This<br />

entailed becoming a Distinguished Military Graduate.<br />

This came true, and after graduation I sold the Porsche<br />

and was off to Viet Nam.<br />

Nobody wants to<br />

hear war stories, so I’ll<br />

fast-forward to the end<br />

of my second tour. I<br />

ultimately returned to<br />

Fort Sill, Oklahoma,<br />

and there came another<br />

Porsche. This time it<br />

was a 1971 914-6. (This,<br />

of course, is the second<br />

1971 914-6<br />

car I should have held onto.) I enjoyed the 914. But<br />

this was Oklahoma, hellishly hot, and the Porsche was<br />

un-air-conditioned.<br />

(Flash forward: today<br />

I drive a 2006 911 Cabriolet,<br />

sedate by Porsche<br />

standards, but we are<br />

talking many years and a<br />

waterfall of Stella Artois<br />

over the spillway.)<br />

(Flash back to Oklahoma.) I’m still in the army. I<br />

purchased a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle to com-

mute from my apartment to Officer Career Courses at<br />

Fort Sill. Helmets were mandatory, so early each morning<br />

several us arrived dressed in Class A uniforms and<br />

dutifully wearing our helmets.<br />

The Bonneville led me to a group of locals and<br />

Army types who spent their weekends tearing around<br />

Lake Ellsworth on dirt bikes. I went through several before<br />

settling on a 360cc Husqvarna. Its 46 horsepower<br />

proved to be my undoing. I crashed the bike, broke my<br />

left collarbone, and spent the rest of the hot Oklahoma<br />

summer in a body cast.<br />

About the time I got out of the body cast, I met Judy,<br />

who has been my wife for nearly 40 years. I needed<br />

something less dangerous to drive, so I purchased a<br />

new 1972 Corvette. It had the 454 cu. In. engine, but by<br />

this time Chevy had fallen prey to emission standards<br />

so the car only managed a puny 270 horsepower.<br />

Army life was quickly losing its charms, so I resigned<br />

my Captain’s commission. Judy and I were off to graduate<br />

school at the University of Oklahoma. We both took<br />

jobs to work our way through school.<br />

Eventually the company I worked for transferred us<br />

to Texas. The years passed. We moved from Keller to<br />

Lewisville to Flower Mound. Last year another Porsche<br />

arrived. We became Mavericks and we continue to enjoy<br />

the friends we’ve met and roads we’ve traveled.<br />

Maverick Region Logo: Time For An Update?<br />

By Bill Orr<br />

Images by Bill Orr<br />

he Maverick Region was born in November<br />

T<br />

1962 at the Fiesta Best Western Motel in<br />

Arlington, Texas. The official charter from<br />

the national officers of PCA was issued on<br />

December 24th, 1962. On<br />

April 5th, 1963 Geoffery<br />

Hamilton Horsfall submitted<br />

a design for the first<br />

Maverick Region logo, a<br />

design that has now been<br />

in use for over 50 years.<br />

Logos are intended<br />

to be the “face” of a company:<br />

They are graphical<br />

displays of a company’s<br />

unique identity, and through colors, fonts and images<br />

they provide essential information about a company<br />

that allows customers to identify with the company’s<br />

brand.<br />

Unfortunately, the most unique element of the original<br />

design is overlooked by most because of a change<br />

made years ago. The replica of a Porsche steering<br />

wheel in black and nickel finish was changed by removing<br />

the Porsche crest and replacing it with a gold star.<br />

The problem is that the white star was supposed to represent<br />

the Lone Star State and now there are two stars.<br />

In addition, the original logo was designed before the<br />

newsletter, before the website, and before the Goodie<br />

Store. As a result it is technically problematic. With its<br />

layered elements and fine lines, it does not scale well.<br />

The two places you see this most is in the newsletter<br />

and on Goodie Store items. In the newsletter it does<br />

not scale down very well at all. On embroidered items<br />

from the Goodie Store, the logo has to be sewn unusually<br />

large in order to see all of the detail and fine<br />

lines. Another issue is that the word “Texas” is written<br />

in white, and because it is superimposed over the white<br />

star, the “x” tends to get lost.<br />

Being over 50 years old, the original logo is very dated.<br />

The font used is very plain and lacks style. There is<br />

nothing that visually connects the emblem to Porsche<br />

or to the national Porsche Club. Fifty years ago, Porsche<br />

only sold sports cars. Today they sell sports cars, SUVs,<br />

sedans, and even bicycles. In that time, both Porsche<br />

and the Porsche Club have updated their logos. It’s<br />

time for the Maverick Region do so as well, because the<br />

original logo just does not meet the needs of the region<br />

today or in the future. So at the June 1, <strong>2016</strong> Board<br />

meeting, the Maverick Region Board voted to change<br />

the logo upon the approval of a new design.<br />

In designing a new logo our mission was to design<br />

something that reflected the region we serve. With<br />

144 different regions in PCA, having a logo that communicates<br />

where you are from is important at national<br />

events. We also set out with a specific set of objectives:<br />

• It needs to be something the members of the<br />

organization can proudly stand behind.<br />

• It needs to look good at all sizes and on all forms<br />

of media.<br />

• It needs to appeal to people of all ages.<br />

• It needs to appeal to potential members, donators,<br />

and sponsors.<br />

• It needs to be modern, but not rely too heavily<br />

on trends.<br />

• It needs to have a visual connection to both the<br />

national Porsche Club and Porsche logos.<br />

• It needs to be strong enough to stand next to the<br />

national Porsche Club and Porsche logo and not<br />

look out of place.<br />

So we came up with a new PROPOSED design that<br />

kept the original concept of the Texas Flag and the<br />

Lone Star State. It uses a wheel and tire instead of a<br />

steering wheel, but we added the Porsche Horse to tie<br />

it to the Porsche Crest and to the PCA National logo.<br />

The single STAR over a red,<br />

white, and blue background represents<br />

the State of Texas Flag.<br />

Adding the Horse from the<br />

Porsche crest, and the word Texas<br />

ties the logo back to Porsche<br />

as well as the Maverick Region.<br />

When most people think of Maverick<br />

and Texas they think of the<br />

NBA basketball team, the Dallas<br />

Mavericks, whose mascot is a<br />

horse.<br />

The black ring with white text<br />

represents a tire. The star inside<br />

a circle represents a wheel. The<br />

red and blue are like brake calipers<br />

showing through the wheel.<br />

Wheel and tire dimensions have<br />

changed over time, but unlike steering wheels, they are<br />

basically the same as in years past.<br />

18 <strong>July</strong>

The end result is something that not only meets all of our objectives but it is also an evolution of the original<br />

concept.<br />

If you now look at the new PROPOSED Maverick region logo and compare it to the Porsche Crest and the PCA<br />

logo, I think you will agree that the new logo not only stands on its own, but it complements the Porsche Crest and<br />

the PCA logo much better than the old one.<br />

The Maverick Region Board is looking for feedback on the new PROPOSED logo and is accepting any and all<br />

other design ideas. Please submit those to Bill Orr via email at bill@billorr.com.<br />

Tub Club Adventures: The Tub Club Goes Green<br />

By Barbara Madsen<br />

en Tub Club members<br />

T<br />

enjoyed an inspiring<br />

and informational tour<br />

of the Native Texas Park<br />

at the Bush Presidential Center in<br />

Dallas in April. Hertha Hughes, a<br />

Tub Club (and Maverick) member<br />

who is a docent at the Bush Library,<br />

initiated and organized the event.<br />

She not only provided the club<br />

with a wealth of information on the<br />

environmentally conscious theme<br />

of the park, but, since Tub Club<br />

members don’t have much of a<br />

desire to be pelted by rain and hail<br />

while looking at wildflowers, had to<br />

reschedule the tour repeatedly due<br />

to threatening weather forecasts.<br />

Hertha identifies various wildflowers<br />

for Tub Club members<br />

The 15-acre park is divided up<br />

into three ecosystems: Blackland<br />

Prairie, Post Oak Savannah, and<br />

Cross Timbers Forest. It is unique<br />

among presidential libraries, and<br />

the park’s native Texas landscape<br />

played a key role in qualifying the<br />

presidential center as a platinum<br />

Hertha discusses the purpose<br />

of bioswales in the park’s water<br />

management system<br />

level LEED (Leadership in Energy<br />

and Environmental Design), the<br />

first presidential library to achieve<br />

this distinction. To reduce the<br />

need for irrigation, the topography<br />

of the site was changed from a flat<br />

area to one that gradually sloped<br />

downward 27 feet. A 252-gallon<br />

cistern is located at the lowest level<br />

of the park, and all water percolating<br />

through the park is eventually<br />

captured there and pumped out to<br />

take care of the needs of the landscape.<br />

The cistern, however, is only part<br />

of the water conservation system<br />

used in the park. You will also find a<br />

stone sweep, which slowly expresses<br />

rainwater, and bioswales, which use<br />

plants to filter storm water runoff.<br />

This water management system was<br />

designed to provide 40% of the water<br />

needed for the landscape, but<br />

in actuality, it has far exceeded the<br />

original goals of the plan.<br />

We strolled on wandering trails,<br />

which snaked their way through<br />

hillsides covered with a kaleidoscope<br />

of color. Many varieties of<br />

wildflowers, grasses, bushes, and<br />

trees were blooming with all the<br />

enthusiasm spring entails. There<br />

are 53 different wildflower species<br />

represented in the park along with<br />

37 types of grasses, 34 shrub species,<br />

and 31 species of native trees.<br />

Although it looked as though we<br />

were walking through pristine areas<br />

untouched by human hands, an<br />

award-winning landscape architect,<br />

Michael Van Valkenburgh, carefully<br />

designed the park, and the result<br />

of his work was breathtaking! The<br />

self-sustaining and environmentally<br />

conscious aspect of his design is a<br />

guide for all of us to follow. It was<br />

an enjoyable and educational day.<br />

Thanks, Hertha!<br />

Linda, Lee, and Bill need a rest<br />

after walking a mile<br />

Autocross 4: Mineral Wells Mirror-Cross<br />

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair<br />

he fourth event of the Equipe Rapide/PCA<br />

T<br />

Autocross season was held at the expansive<br />

Mineral Ring site west of the Metroplex on<br />

Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. This site<br />

is so large it makes it possible to run two courses sideby-side,<br />

in what is known as a Mirror-Cross format. Drivers<br />

lined up for a drag-race style start (complete with<br />

Christmas Tree lights) on the left and right courses<br />

and departed simultaneously on parallel straightaways,<br />

where many cars ran hard in<br />

third gear before they turned<br />

away from each other to run<br />

alone on their own course. After<br />

the finish, the cars traded<br />

sides and lined up again to<br />

run the opposite course. Each<br />

car got six timed runs in the<br />

morning and six more timed<br />

runs in the afternoon. Best<br />

time on each course was all<br />

that mattered.<br />

Mirror-Cross pre-grid<br />

dual driver cars line up<br />

Seventy-four drivers ran<br />

for times, and the side-by-side<br />

competition created some<br />

fierce contests in classes and for overall honors, including<br />

Performance Index (PAX) cash payouts.<br />

Fred Stubbs and Mike Syler pitted Boxster Spyder<br />

and 997S respectively against each other in class P3.<br />

Fred was also first in the Porsche PAX cash payouts at<br />

this event on one of the courses. Mark Schnoerr won<br />

PAX on the other side. So far there have been four different<br />

winners of the top payout this season.<br />

Class P4 saw the Ed Mayo blue and orange 911S<br />

and the Sigrid Schnoerr Lime Green 914 2.0, both<br />

two-driver cars, and Marissa Moore in her 911T, hard<br />

at work. Mark Schnoerr was quickest in class on both<br />

courses, while Ed and Sigrid split second quickest on<br />

both courses. Overall combined for the day, the order<br />

was Mark, Ed, Sigrid, Julie and Marissa.<br />

Erik Holt and Doug Edney ran uncontested in their<br />

own classes but were also competing for the PAX payouts.<br />

Sue Crimm shared her 924S with Carey Spreen in<br />

class P9. Sue likes the power steering on this car better<br />

than the unassisted steering on Carey’s 911SC in the<br />

fast slalom sections.<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

ith all of the rainy days in May through early<br />

W<br />

June, I was reminded to re-read one of my<br />

favorite driving stories, The Art of Racing in<br />

the Rain by Garth Stein. If you’ve not read<br />

this one, or even if this is also a re-read for you, reliving<br />

the story of Enzo and Denny is always uplifting, especially<br />

since Denny hones his driving skills in a Porsche.<br />

This is a heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately<br />

uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope.<br />

The Art of Racing in the Rain is a captivating look at the<br />

wonders and absurdities of human life…as only a dog<br />

could tell it. Now that the weather has dried out a bit,<br />

you may have to wait for the sprinklers to come on to<br />

get you in the right mood!<br />

We recently completed a 17 day road trip in our<br />

Boxster S through the Southwest and up the West<br />

coast. The 2014 Boxster S is now 25 months old and<br />

has 20,000 miles on it. There is no question we feel<br />

we’re getting full enjoyment out of our Porsche ownership<br />

investment with each ensuing road trip!<br />

Of course that got me to thinking about what is<br />

commonly referred to as “The Porsche Principle”. Attributed<br />

more than 65 years ago to Ferry Porsche, the<br />

quoted principle is “In the beginning, I looked around<br />

and could not find the car I’d been dreaming of: a<br />

small, lightweight sports car that uses energy efficiently.<br />

So I decided to build it myself.”<br />

In our visit to the recently renovated Petersen Car<br />

Museum in Los Angeles, that Porsche Principle was<br />

highly visible in their engineering history display area.<br />

Ferry’s dream of the perfect sports car has always<br />

driven Porsche – throughout their history<br />

– with every concept, every development and every<br />

model. The underlying principle is to always<br />

get the most out of everything. At Porsche, form<br />

always follows function.<br />

So, as Maverick Region members, we enjoy the<br />

Porsche Principle in many different ways. We have<br />

members who simply enjoy the pure form, design, even<br />

art, of the Porsche that sits most often in their garage.<br />

As collectors of art, viewing their Porsche satisfies an<br />

important need.<br />

Other members like to display their Porsche in<br />

Concours events, putting minimal miles on it to lessen<br />

the odds of the occasional road blemish occurring. Detailing<br />

and paying close attention to the cleanliness of<br />

every surface, inside and out, provides a close connection<br />

with the form and function of their Porsche.<br />

Still others view the ultimate enjoyment of both form<br />

and function of their Porsche in the regular exercise of<br />

it. These members subscribe to the Porsche credo of “A<br />

Porsche is no ordinary sports car, but a sports car for<br />

everyday driving, whatever the weather”. Chips, abrasions,<br />

and faded paint begin to form the patina of the<br />

Porsche from the first day of ownership. I imagine that<br />

quite a few of our members are members of this club,<br />

mostly by using their Porsche as a daily driver, but also<br />

perhaps by taking regular road trips like we enjoy in<br />

that Porsche investment.<br />

Wherever you fall in The Porsche Principle continuum,<br />

rest assured that you have many Maverick members<br />

right beside you. That alone is a great reason to be<br />

active in our many club events each month. I hope to<br />

see you soon at one of our upcoming events listed in<br />

our club calendar on page 1.<br />

For the August issue of <strong>Slipstream</strong>, our Photo of the<br />

Month focus will be Porsche cars participating in<br />

PCA and Maverick events. Send your photo<br />

submissions to editor@mavpca.org, or post them<br />
