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.<br />

It’s clear at first glance -<br />

in this car beats the heart of a pure-bred sprinter.<br />

Muscular, athletic, powerful and challenging. The Cayenne GTS makes a clear statement.<br />

On every straight and in every bend. The car is powered by an all-new 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6<br />

engine with direct fuel injection (DFI). It produces a 0-62mph time of 5.2 thrilling seconds.<br />

An all-rounder that enjoys the short sprint as much as the long distance. For exhilaration and<br />

relaxation. And with a range of standard equipment that is far from ordinary.<br />

Shifting Gears: Of National and Regional Interest<br />

By Jim Falgout, Region President<br />

First gear: Your President recently<br />

attended the Zone 5 Presidents’ Meeting. I thought I<br />

would pass on some basic information that probably<br />

many of our newer members, and perhaps some of<br />

the members who joined some time ago, may not be<br />

familiar with. The national organization, Porsche<br />

Club of America, which is the largest club for a single<br />

marque in the world, is composed of an Executive<br />

Committee and a Board. The Executive Committee, as<br />

in your Region, consists of a President, Vice President,<br />

Secretary, and Treasurer. The Board is composed of<br />

the Region Presidents, which includes me, from all<br />

144 Regions. The Regions are grouped into 13 Zones;<br />

Maverick Region is in Zone 5. Each Zone is headed by a<br />

Zone Representative, who keeps the Region Presidents<br />

informed of issues at the national level, among other<br />

responsibilities,<br />

Second gear: Now to the fun stuff. We had a successful<br />

Drivers’ Education event in February. We have some<br />

good events coming up in <strong>April</strong>. There is another<br />

DE <strong>April</strong> 2-3. If you are reading this after those dates,<br />

hope you attended and enjoyed. Our tour master has<br />

been busy setting up several tours for your enjoyment.<br />

Saturday, <strong>April</strong> 16 is an Easter Egg Hunt Road Rally,<br />

put on by our Rally team. That really sounds like fun.<br />

Hope you can participate.<br />

We also have some fun non-track events planned<br />

for your enjoyment. May at Mayo’s is a dinner and<br />

Concours d’Elegance, scheduled for Saturday, <strong>April</strong><br />

30. You may wonder why it is called May at Mayo’s when<br />

it is in <strong>April</strong>. Well, it has always been held in May, but<br />

due to some scheduling conflicts we have to move it to<br />

<strong>April</strong> this year. Besides, “<strong>April</strong> at Mayo’s” just does not<br />

have the same ring to it.<br />

Third gear: In addition, there are two events<br />

organized by other groups that we are invited to<br />

participate in. One is All British & European Car Day<br />

on Sunday, May 1 at White Rock Lake, which will have<br />

a special section for Porsche. The other is Autos in<br />

the Park at the Cooper Aerobics Center on Preston<br />

Road, south of LBJ, where we will have a Concours<br />

within a Concours on Sunday, June 5. The events at<br />

May at Mayo’s and Autos in the Park are not the really<br />

competitive style of Concours, though, so shine up<br />

your baby and bring it out.<br />

Fourth gear: On May 6, 7 and 8, your club, along with<br />

the Houston and Austin regional clubs, is sponsoring a<br />

Club Race and Solo DE at Circuit of the Americas in<br />

Austin. If you are qualified, that is a must-do event. If<br />

you are not qualified, you can always be a spectator at no<br />

cost, or even better, you can volunteer. If you want to<br />

volunteer for this event, please contact Chris Alvarado<br />

at calvarado@clubregistration.net<br />

Fifth gear: There was that word again: volunteer.<br />

If you are interested in finding out what kinds of<br />

opportunities are available for you to help make this<br />

a great club, and actually get more enjoyment out of<br />

your membership, contact our Volunteer Chairperson<br />

Jim Gallegos at volunteers@mavpc.org.<br />

Gimme a Minute: March Board Meeting<br />

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary March 2, <strong>2016</strong><br />

President Jim Falgout<br />

began the meeting at 7:01 pm. He<br />

mentioned he attended the Zone<br />

5 meeting in Austin and came<br />

back with some new national tour<br />

guidelines. He also mentioned PCA<br />

Escape is now being called Treffen<br />

North America and there will be<br />

two per year starting in 2017. Spring<br />

2017 will be going to the Hill Country!<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> Editor Jim Hirsch said<br />

the mailings were a little late this<br />

month, probably because it was a<br />

short month. Maverick Region is in<br />

the Panorama “From the Regions”<br />

section and may be again soon. He<br />

submitted his national newsletter<br />

contest entry in plenty of time. He<br />

continues to be able to fill 40 pages<br />

each month and now includes Photos<br />

of the Month with his suggested<br />

topics (interiors, wheels, etc.). He<br />

has about 15 calendars left and we<br />

discussed ideas on how to sell the<br />

remaining ones.<br />

VP David Robertson said he obtained<br />

insurance for every event<br />

coming up. He encouraged event<br />

chairs to keep him informed for future<br />

events.<br />

Volunteer Chair Jimmy Gallegos<br />

wants to approach people to volunteer.<br />

He passed out a Volunteer form<br />

for board members to use. They<br />

would describe how many people<br />

they need and what they’re required<br />

to do. He will submit electronically<br />

to board members to help make the<br />

matches.<br />

Co-Editor Carey Spreen went to<br />

the most recent Equip Rapide autocross<br />

and had a great time. The<br />

event was run well with everyone<br />

getting eight runs and they finished<br />

early in the day.<br />

6 <strong>April</strong><br />

Rally Chair Don Sebert is planning<br />

an <strong>April</strong> Easter Egg Hunt rally,<br />

which will be a puzzle sort of gimmick<br />

rally, which should be fun.<br />

Calendar Chair Brendan Eagan<br />

says the calendar is up to date.<br />

Unfortunately, the person who volunteered<br />

to help him do calendar<br />

entries online has moved.<br />

Monthly Dinner Social Chair<br />

Stephanie Ho reported that the<br />

February event at Lavendou was a<br />

huge success. She wants to thank the<br />

owner in a significant way. We will<br />

prepare a plaque to give him. The<br />

March event is at Love and War in<br />

Texas in Grapevine. She is looking<br />

at other locations for future events,<br />

maybe including Arthur’s again.<br />

Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh<br />

is working to get additional items<br />

available online. He will keep us<br />

posted.<br />

Concours Chair Andy Kay is getting<br />

ready for the May at Mayo’s<br />

event on <strong>April</strong> 30 and Autos in the<br />

Park on June 5. He wants them<br />

added to the calendar and ads for<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> created.<br />

Advertising Chair Cindy Bliss is<br />

looking forward to training to learn<br />

how to do her new job.<br />

Secretary Wendy Shoffit reported<br />

for several others absent from the<br />

meeting. Autocross Chair Mark<br />

Schnoerr also reported that the first<br />

Autocross was a good one. There<br />

were 13 Porsche entries out of 81 total.<br />

There are new Parade classifications<br />

grouping Porsches into more<br />

relevant classes, making for great<br />

competition. Carey Spreen was first<br />

in his class and fastest Porsche. PCA<br />

ladies swept the ladies overall PAX<br />

payouts and seven Mavericks overall<br />

got cash awards. The next event will<br />

be a double event weekend at Mineral<br />

Wells. Richard Diller is helping<br />

out by getting the sweeper back in<br />

action to clean up the course out<br />

there. Also reporting was Sunday<br />

Drive Chair Tom Martin, who said<br />

that everything was on schedule.<br />

Time Trial Chair Travis Howard said<br />

he has scheduled TT#1 for Mineral<br />

Wells for May 28 and TT #2 for<br />

MotorSport Ranch on September<br />

18. JC at MSR has agreed to let us<br />

park the Truxster out there for free.<br />

Membership Chair John Hamilton<br />

reported that we are down seven primary<br />

and seven affiliate members<br />

from last month. Membership is<br />

now at 1634 primary and 883 affiliates<br />

for a total of 2517. Lastly, as DE<br />

registrar, Wendy reported we had<br />

a very full, successful DE with the<br />

lower run groups being nearly full<br />

and a healthy showing in the upper<br />

run groups. We trained three new<br />

driving coaches, as well.<br />

Safety Chair Joe McGlohen emphasized<br />

that it was a great DE event.<br />

He has several volunteers helping<br />

him out now and he spent the weekend<br />

training them. He hopes to<br />

have an article writer for the event<br />

and will keep pursuing.<br />

Treasurer Richard Solomon<br />

reported we have about $142K in<br />

the bank now. The DE event had a<br />

decent surplus, but track expenses<br />

keep going up. We will look for ways<br />

to spend the money wisely.<br />

Lastly, Jim Falgout announced<br />

that Tracy Robertson is this month’s<br />

Maverick of the Month for her tremendous<br />

job at the All Member<br />

Party and other social events.<br />

Meeting adjourned at 7:59 pm.<br />

Interested in learning more about how your club operates? Board meetings are<br />

scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month and members are welcome to attend.

Destination Restoration: Waking from Hibernation<br />

By Ash Seidl-Staley<br />

Photo Courtesy of the Author<br />

10 <strong>April</strong><br />

Spring is a beautiful<br />

time of year. When referring to<br />

how spring makes me feel, I speak<br />

less of mild temperatures, singing<br />

birds, or blossoming flowers,<br />

but rather about the thousands<br />

of Porsches awaking from their<br />

long winter hibernations. I mean<br />

buzzing bees and chirping birds<br />

are great and all, but what really<br />

excites me about this time of year<br />

is the roaring of a Porsche engine<br />

as its lucky owner speeds through<br />

the streets of North Texas. Winter<br />

is just depressing. Even in Texas the<br />

numbers of roadfaring Porsches<br />

drastically decline in these colder<br />

months, and for good reason! Who<br />

wants to risk icy driving, salty road<br />

conditions, or crazy southern drivers?<br />

Not this guy! Thankfully winter,<br />

which was rather mild this year,<br />

has relinquished its grip on the<br />

weather and we can all go out and<br />

play with our cars.<br />

Due to an intense work load<br />

in Graduate classes last fall, I was<br />

unable to write up two separate<br />

articles describing the methods I<br />

used to stow away both my 914 and<br />

my 944 for the winter. But there is<br />

always this year right? My school<br />

work has not let up at all this spring<br />

semester, but I still managed to<br />

draft the procedures I took to wake<br />

up my 944, not only to get her running<br />

for the <strong>2016</strong> year, but also to<br />

get her inspected and registered by<br />

the end of February.<br />

Since, due to regular maintenance<br />

on my wife’s vehicle, I had<br />

planned on using the 944 a couple<br />

times during December and January,<br />

the procedures to get the car<br />

ready for another year were fairly<br />

simple. Unlike the 914, I had not<br />

completely drained the car of gasoline<br />

or of brake fluid. Because of<br />

this my list of tasks was amazingly<br />

short. First, I reconnected the recently<br />

charged battery, pulled my<br />

spark plug wires, and turned over<br />

the engine a few times without a<br />

spark. After I felt like all the pertinent<br />

mechanicals were coated<br />

in some much needed oil, I reattached<br />

my spark plug cables and<br />

fired her up. I could not believe<br />

how quickly the car started or how<br />

gracefully it sat idling. Was this the<br />

same Guards Red 944?<br />

With the remaining hours left<br />

in the day, I hopped in the car<br />

and drove straight to a gas station.<br />

There I topped off the fuel tank<br />

and filled the droopy tires with<br />

compressed air. As the car drove<br />

I took special care to notice if my<br />

dashboard components illuminated<br />

when I initiated the turn signals,<br />

hazards, and headlights, including<br />

the high beams. Similarly, I monitored<br />

my engine’s fluctuating temperature,<br />

watching it steadily rise to<br />

the 3/4 mark, waiting for the fans<br />

to kick on, and watching it travel<br />

back down to the appropriate level.<br />

When I had finally made it back to<br />

my apartment I continued to let<br />

the car run for a good twenty minutes<br />

more. I was delighted to find<br />

that my cooling fans did indeed<br />

work, and all my fluid levels were<br />

right within Porsche specifications.<br />

A quick oil change, oil and air filter<br />

replacement, as wells a brake pad<br />

check rounded out my necessary<br />

obligations.<br />

The first hurdle was past me; I<br />

had my 944 back on the road. Now<br />

all that was left was the dreaded state<br />

inspection. For those Mavericks<br />

who have followed my inspection<br />

escapades over the years I am grateful<br />

to report that the 944 passed on<br />

its first try! Most of the credit is due<br />

to my intense pre-inspection procedures,<br />

but some of it is definitely<br />

attributed to luck. While out on my<br />

test drive I had confirmed that the<br />

interior and exterior turn indicators<br />

all worked perfectly fine. With<br />

the assistance of a helper I checked<br />

to make sure that all the brake<br />

lights, tail lights, reverse lights, and<br />

rear signals illuminated when supposed<br />

to. The only hiccup found<br />

was my right rear tail light. For<br />

some reason<br />

the light<br />

would work<br />

at some<br />

moments<br />

and then go<br />

dark for others.<br />

Quirky right tail light<br />

After opening the light housing<br />

and fidgeting with the bulb I came<br />

to the realization that I had mistakenly<br />

misplaced the tail light and<br />

brake light bulbs. Once I made the<br />

switch with new bulbs I again tested<br />

the vehicle, which, as you might<br />

have guessed, passed. A quick jolt<br />

down the road to my neighborhood<br />

inspection station took literally two<br />

minutes, and the inspection itself<br />

was a world record breaking seven<br />

minutes. The humble attendant at<br />

the station took great care with my<br />

precious classic, even asking “are<br />

there any quirks with it I should<br />

know about?” When I answered that<br />

there weren’t any to my knowledge,<br />

minus the finicky tail light, he sped<br />

off around the corner with a smile<br />

on his face. By the time I checked<br />

my email the car inspection was<br />

done and paid for. Miraculously,<br />

my time spent in line at the DMV<br />

was even shorter!<br />

Driving home with my new registration<br />

sticker, I felt as though I had<br />

wandered into an alternate universe.<br />

I have never had such a<br />

smooth inspection/registration experience<br />

ever! Let’s just hope that<br />

the good luck will continue on into<br />

May when I have to get the 914’s<br />

credentials updated. Until that<br />

time and the next article: Wrench<br />

on Mavs!


Third Coast Rally 2015: 928 Owners Club on the Other Coast<br />

By The Patman<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

When it comes to sunny locations<br />

to display and admire beautiful<br />

cars, it’s often the beaches that<br />

come to mind. On the east coast,<br />

there’s Ft. Lauderdale. You’ve got<br />

Monterey on the west coast, and believe<br />

it or not, there’s an often overlooked<br />

third coast down in Texas.<br />

It’s here that, once a year, the town<br />

of Marble Falls witnesses an influx<br />

of nearly a hundred of Porsche’s<br />

classic V8, the 928. Drivers come<br />

from as far away as Canada to be a<br />

part of this event. The name of the<br />

event? The 928 Owners Club just<br />

calls it “Third Coast.”<br />

Typically the rally takes place<br />

over a three-day weekend. It “officially”<br />

starts at the Friday night<br />

Meet & Greet in the Hampton Inn<br />

parking lot. This is followed by a<br />

day of “relaxed” country driving on<br />

Saturday, and a “Shine and Show”<br />

event on Sunday. The last day also<br />

includes an outdoor grilled lunch<br />

and the distribution of many highly<br />

desirable prizes offered by the<br />

event sponsors.<br />

This year, I played a tiny part in<br />

the event by sponsoring some prizes<br />

and (foolishly) offering to design<br />

the event logo for the trophy<br />

plaques, shirts, and so on. And in<br />

so doing, soon realized that there’s<br />

quite a bit involved in preparing<br />

for, and planning an event like this!<br />

So I say right now: my hat’s off to all<br />

the organizers!<br />

Anyway, on Thursday, Carole<br />

and I decided to load up and drive<br />

Before the group arrives on Friday<br />

12 <strong>April</strong><br />

down a day early in an effort to beat<br />

the storms due to roll into Dallas<br />

over the weekend. We expected<br />

a nice and easy four-hour drive to<br />

Marble Falls, and would have had<br />

it, were it not for the early arrival of<br />

very storms we had hoped to avoid.<br />

It was the first time the Guards<br />

Red 928 had seen the rain since I<br />

bought it. But, as the weekend progressed,<br />

it wouldn’t be the last.<br />

Apparently, the shark drives<br />

well in the water, making the drive<br />

south fairly uneventful. And as we<br />

were a day ahead of the 928 horde,<br />

we needed only check in to the<br />

Hampton, and the following day<br />

would be free for us to cruise the<br />

Texas countryside and enjoy what<br />

would be our last moment of serene<br />

peace!<br />

Friday night Meet & Greet<br />

There were occasional rain showers<br />

most of the weekend, but I must<br />

admit that the Friday night Meet &<br />

Greet in the parking lot can still be<br />

quite entertaining! I think the atmosphere<br />

could be best described<br />

as kinda like those “red plastic cup”<br />

parties you had in high school. At<br />

any rate, by nine that evening the<br />

hotel parking lot was certainly filled<br />

with lots of happy people and 928s<br />

of various models, colors, and states<br />

of tune. One member trailered his<br />

car down from Indiana, which we<br />

were pleased about, as the trailer<br />

was enclosed and provided shelter<br />

from the light showers during the<br />

night. Either way, most folks passed<br />

the hours drinking, ogling each<br />

other’s cars, and misrepresenting<br />

The “prefoolishness” dinner group<br />

the power and beauty of their own.<br />

Of course, ya can’t have a crowd<br />

like this without the usual mischief<br />

and practical joking that goes with<br />

the red cups.<br />

Now in the past, on Saturday<br />

morning, if you could pull yourself<br />

outta bed after the Friday night<br />

soiree, there would be a breakfast<br />

in the lobby, a drivers meeting, and<br />

a two-group drive: an experienced<br />

group and a more-experienced<br />

group. But this time, Saturday<br />

morning brought with it more rain,<br />

and it became evident that there<br />

would be little room for “spirited”<br />

driving today. Still, breakfast and<br />

the meeting awaited.<br />

The comparative seriousness of<br />

the Driver’s meeting really demonstrates<br />

the organizers’ commitment<br />

to safety, especially considering the<br />

tomfoolery that goes with the Third<br />

Coast Rally. We ensure that all the<br />

cars have a functional two-way radio,<br />

and the resultant 20 minutes<br />

of “radio checks” can be hilarious.<br />

The ensuing drive, though soggy<br />

and overcast, was pleasant enough,<br />

and seeing the faces of the mortals<br />

Ready to leave on Saturday morning

Leaving the Flat Creek Winery<br />

as dozens of 928s drive by was more pleasant still. I really<br />

like being part of this group. Plus, ya gotta admit,<br />

the cars are cool.<br />

The drive took us first to the Flat Creek Winery in<br />

Marble Falls, the proprietors of which demonstrated<br />

great hospitality, and probably restraint, when 100<br />

Porsche fanatics invaded the area at 9:30 am for a wine<br />

tasting (no red cups.) They had a beautiful property,<br />

and Carole and I could’ve stayed the day, but there<br />

was a schedule to keep. So we all regrouped after some<br />

browsing, and headed out for some more moist weather<br />

driving.<br />

The rain was replaced<br />

with overcast<br />

skies as we left the<br />

vineyards, and so the<br />

next part of the drive<br />

over to the Oasis restaurant<br />

was actually<br />

slightly exhilarating.<br />

No, it wasn’t high<br />

speed, but the wet<br />

roads, in kind of a<br />

sick way, afforded a<br />

modicum of excitement<br />

through the<br />

tight curves and<br />

steep hills on the way to our lunch rendezvous. The<br />

Oasis restaurant, truly one of the wonders of the Austin<br />

area, was magnificent. We had a cliff-side private dining<br />

area overlooking Lake Travis that was decorated for<br />

Christmas making it all the nicer.<br />

After some Mexican food, and lies about what great<br />

drivers we all were, we set off once again, this time, towards<br />

the Deep Eddy Vodka distillery in southwest Austin.<br />

Truth is, I had heard of Deep Eddy Vodka, but had<br />

no idea just how many flavors of vodka there could be.<br />

I think Carole tried them all. She’s pretty light though,<br />

so I had no problem carrying her to the car.<br />

Later that afternoon, as we arrived back in the hotel<br />

parking lot, the scene was something like a high school<br />

car wash, without the cheerleaders though. I took my<br />

turn at getting my 928 looking pristine again, and was<br />

just drying off the last drop of rinse water when I noticed<br />

another convoy forming up.<br />

“Hey, where ya going this late in the day?” I yelled<br />

(not wanting to be left out of anything of course).<br />

Dash, the leader, told me that he was taking a few<br />

cars out to see a castle.<br />

And sure enough, 45 minutes later, the dozen or so<br />

of us were pulling through the gates of the Falkenstein<br />

castle. The owners of the property, whom Dash had met<br />

earlier in the day, allowed us to file in through the gate<br />

and park the cars for a sunset photoshoot. One of the<br />

The group of 928s at Falkenstein castle<br />

best parts of the trip, to be sure, was strolling through<br />

the castle and surrounding lands.<br />

I could tell ya about the Saturday night festivities,<br />

but it’d be largely the same as Friday: a nice dinner at<br />

a local barbecue joint, then more partying in the hotel<br />

parking lot. And of course, more red plastic cups.<br />

Sunday, the final day of the Third Coast event, was a<br />

beautiful sunny and cool day. A nearby park area was to<br />

be the site of the final event of the weekend, the Shine<br />

and Show, lunch, and prize giveaway. The event sponsors<br />

this year provided a huge amount of prizes to give<br />

away, from car parts to tools. Of course, there were also<br />

event-branded shirts and commemorative wine glasses<br />

for everyone attending.<br />

Andy Kay and The Patman getting their 928s<br />

ready for the Shine and Show<br />

Roger Tyson, from 928sRus, was put on grill duty<br />

cooking burgers and hot dogs for the group, while a<br />

couple of the club elders were out judging the 928s in<br />

their various classes. There were awards given for Sponsor’s<br />

Choice, People’s Choice, Best Non-928, Best Daily<br />

Driver, and just about anything that could be done to<br />

recognize everyone. Believe me, it was just about impossible<br />

to attend the Third Coast Rally and not have a<br />

good time on some level. If ya couldn’t make it, there’s<br />

always next year, and the Spring Fling is coming up<br />

soon!<br />


Maverick Region AX Series: Event 1, Burleson High School<br />

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair<br />

PCA / Equipe Rapide<br />

Autocross 1 was at the new Burleson<br />

High School lot on Sunday,<br />

February 28. This lot is much like<br />

Pennington Field, where we used<br />

to run events, and also has a terrific<br />

concrete surface. For the first<br />

event at this site, a shorter course<br />

was used but as a result, everyone<br />

got 8 timed runs. See the results accompanying<br />

this article.<br />

There were 13 Porsche entries<br />

out of the 81 total who ran for<br />

times, which is 16% of the entries.<br />

The new Parade “small region”<br />

classifications worked well and put<br />

the Porsches into just three classes.<br />

It was highly competitive in classes<br />

P2 and P4. Fred Stubbs brought<br />

out his Boxster Spyder, and with<br />

support from wife Jean, took his assault<br />

on Class P3 also.<br />

Carey Spreen was first in class<br />

P4 and first quick Porsche. Carey<br />

(911SC), Mark Schnoerr (914 2.0)<br />

14 <strong>April</strong><br />

Fred and Jean Stubbs<br />

Carey Spreen had the first quick<br />

Porsche time with co-driver Sue Crimm<br />

and new driver Matt Bugener (Boxster<br />

GTS), qualified for cash awards<br />

(unfortunately Matt did not stay for<br />

awards). The Porsche Ladies swept<br />

the ladies<br />

overall<br />

PAX payouts<br />

with<br />

cash going<br />

to Sigrid<br />

Schnoerr<br />

(914 2.0),<br />

Julia Underwood<br />

(911S), Marissa<br />

Moore<br />

The Schnoerr’s 914<br />

(911S), and Sue Crimm (911SC).<br />

Julia Underwood with<br />

Ed Mayo’s 1972 911S<br />

Chris Alkier and Greg Dranow<br />

brought their beautiful late-model<br />

911s out to keep the Caymans honest<br />

in class P2. Matthew Cords and<br />

Brian Ogle have also competed<br />

with each other in this <strong>2016</strong> class.<br />

Greg Dranow staging for a run<br />

The next event, which will already<br />

have taken place by the time<br />

you read this (March 19 and 20),<br />

was a double event weekend at<br />

Mineral Wells: an autocross school<br />

on Saturday followed by Autocross<br />

2 on Sunday, a “mirrorcross” with a<br />

full-on Christmas Tree start, where<br />

your best times on each side of the<br />

“mirror” are added together -- lots<br />

of fun. Richard Diller is working on<br />

getting the Zamboni-style sweeper<br />

back in action to make course set<br />

up go quicker at Mineral Wells.<br />

Maybe we can get him to bring out<br />

one of his 911s again. After that,<br />

back to Lone Star Park on Sunday,<br />

<strong>April</strong> 3.<br />

Come on out -- we have a lot of<br />

fun. There are quite a few interesting<br />

cars and people autocrossing in<br />

North Texas.<br />

My First Four Porsche Cars<br />

By Chris Flaugh, Region Goodie Store Chair<br />

Although I am fairly<br />

new to PCA, having joined in August<br />

2015, I am not new to Porsche.<br />

I am currently on my fourth<br />

Porsche; I have enjoyed them all<br />

and continue to look forward to<br />

the next ones.<br />

My first Porsche was a 1969 911<br />

E Targa Sportomatic, silver exterior<br />

with black interior, houndstooth inserts<br />

in the seats (much like those<br />

in Maverick Ricardo Miranda’s<br />

beautiful orange 912), and Fuchs<br />

wheels -- a European delivery car.<br />

I bought this car from a neighbor<br />

when I lived in Austin in the mid-<br />

1990’s, back when these were just<br />

considered inexpensive used cars<br />

which could be bought for around<br />

$10,000. I was a bit unsure about<br />

the Sportomatic transmission, because<br />

I appreciate a true manual<br />

(and was concerned about future<br />

repair costs when I saw a $5,000+<br />

receipt for rebuilding the transmission<br />

a few years prior), but I bought<br />

it because it was truly a beautiful<br />

car with a paper trail back to day<br />

one, including the original shipping<br />

receipt for the car. And it was<br />

an awesome 30th birthday present<br />

to myself!<br />

Apparently the original owner<br />

was an attorney from Mexico City<br />

who picked up the car at the factory<br />

in Germany and had the car<br />

shipped to Mexico. The car ended<br />

up in Austin with a long-term<br />

owner who eventually lost it in a<br />

divorce settlement; the ex-wife kept<br />

the car for many years and spent a<br />

lot of money on it, including the<br />

$5k transmission rebuild. This was<br />

the story from my neighbor who<br />

bought the car from the ex-wife<br />

and subsequently sold to me. It was<br />

all consistent with the box containing<br />

25 years of receipts and other<br />

documentation.<br />

16 <strong>April</strong><br />

Chris’ 1969 911E Targa<br />

I thoroughly enjoyed that car<br />

for about a year. Although it was<br />

not my daily driver, I would drive it<br />

to work a couple of times per week,<br />

and often on weekends. One of<br />

my favorite drives near my house<br />

was Spicewood Springs Road, west<br />

of Loop 360. Driving those curves<br />

through the trees and over the<br />

creek with the Targa top off and the<br />

sound of the engine in back . . . it<br />

still brings back positive memories<br />

today. I used to refer to the 911 as<br />

therapy: no matter how bad a day<br />

I was having, taking the 911 for a<br />

brisk drive made everything better.<br />

I think that car had a radio, but I<br />

never used it.<br />

I really didn’t want to sell, but<br />

I had happened to mention to a<br />

friend in Michigan that I was thinking<br />

of buying a boat and the 911<br />

might have to go. He expressed<br />

interest, so I mailed him a photo of<br />

the car (this was prior to the popularity<br />

of digital photography) along<br />

with a note that I was going to be<br />

out of town the next week, but to<br />

call me when I got back. Well, when<br />

I returned from my trip and was<br />

waiting for my luggage at the airport,<br />

there was my friend Jim, who<br />

had booked a flight from Detroit to<br />

Austin as soon as he saw the photo<br />

of the car. We went from the airport<br />

directly back to my house, took the<br />

911 for a drive. He wired the full<br />

Photos Courtesy of the Author<br />

asking price to me the next<br />

day and drove the car back<br />

to Michigan. Ironically, the<br />

previous owner had sold<br />

the car to me because he<br />

was buying a boat. I never<br />

ended up buying the boat I<br />

was considering, but I definitely<br />

regret selling this<br />

car. Damn boats!<br />

My second Porsche<br />

was a 2000 Boxster, Forest<br />

Green Metallic exterior<br />

with Savannah tan full<br />

leather interior, black top, 5-speed<br />

manual, sport package. A low mileage,<br />

one-owner car, I bought it used<br />

from Park Place Porsche in 2003. I<br />

enjoyed this car for about two years,<br />

then sold it to a local attorney who<br />

used to do a lot of billboard advertising<br />

here in the Dallas area.<br />

In December 2006, I was missing<br />

my old Boxster and went to look at<br />

a nice 1998 Boxster at Park Place<br />

Lexus (back when they were at<br />

Preston and Park in Plano). I made<br />

an offer on the car, but we were<br />

unable to reach an agreement. On<br />

my way home, I stopped at Boardwalk<br />

Porsche to see what they had<br />

on hand. None of their pre-owned<br />

inventory caught my eye, but I did<br />

end up bringing home my third<br />

Porsche, a new 2006 Cayenne S<br />

titanium edition, black exterior,<br />

two-tone tan/black interior, sport<br />

exhaust.<br />

2006 Cayenne S Titanium Edition

My fourth and current Porsche<br />

is a 1987 924S, Guards Red, with<br />

black Porsche script cloth interior,<br />

5-speed manual, base model<br />

with no options. I bought this car<br />

from the original owner last year,<br />

as it was a low mileage, very original,<br />

fully documented car with a<br />

complete paper trail back to the<br />

window sticker and initial purchase<br />

order. The original owner bought<br />

the car in 1986 as a college graduation<br />

present to himself in Little<br />

Rock, Arkansas, He moved to Texas<br />

shortly thereafter, and the car has<br />

lived here in the Dallas/Fort Worth<br />

area ever since. I drove this car<br />

down to Austin back in September<br />

for the Lone Star LeMans and had<br />

the opportunity to drive it on the<br />

COTA track for the parade laps.<br />

I like the 924S a lot, as I think it<br />

offers an unbeatable combination<br />

of fun and practicality for the money.<br />

While parked in the Porsche<br />

Corral at COTA, more than one<br />

Chris’ current Porsche is a one-owner 1987 924S<br />

911 owner commented on the<br />

amazing amount of luggage space<br />

in the 924 compared to the 911.<br />

Some people may view the 924 as<br />

strictly a first Porsche, a stepping<br />

stone along the way to moving up<br />

to a 911, and there’s nothing wrong<br />

with that. I have taken the opposite<br />

path, starting out with a 911 and<br />

eventually moving to a 924. However,<br />

I’m not finished yet, and I<br />

plan to experience many other flavors<br />

of Porsche in the years to<br />

come. What’s next on the menu for<br />

me -- perhaps a 928, or a 968, or a<br />

930? So many choices . . .<br />

The E-Type, Lime Rock, and Le Chanteclair<br />

By Tom Martin<br />

Photos Courtesy of the Author<br />

The day is over, everyone<br />

is already in bed for the night. For<br />

a few brief moments you are alone.<br />

You are one within yourself. You<br />

step inside your garage and find<br />

yourself staring at the Porsche sitting<br />

before you. You close your<br />

eyes and think back to a time long<br />

ago, when you first saw, or felt, or<br />

experienced whatever it was that attracted<br />

you to the Porsche, or any<br />

sports car, for that matter.<br />

So what was it exactly that<br />

sparked your interest in sports cars?<br />

Could it have been that first glance<br />

of the classic “Komenda” shape, either<br />

in person or in a magazine article?<br />

Perhaps it was the sound of a<br />

screamin’ flat-six at redline. Could<br />

it have been the rumbling roar of<br />

brute American horsepower pumping<br />

through a high displacement<br />

V8? Or maybe it was the “voompah”<br />

sound emanating from a British<br />

inline-four on overrun. And let<br />

us not deny that there’s nothing<br />

quite like viewing for the first time<br />

the sensual beauty of an Italian<br />

exotic at rest. Or hearing its V12 at<br />

redline.<br />

Jaguar XKE aka Gina Lollobrigida<br />

18 <strong>April</strong><br />

Whatever it was, it’s safe to assume<br />

that something appealed to<br />

all our visceral selves. And there is<br />

a lot to be said for something that<br />

can reach way down within oneself<br />

and endear it for a lifetime.<br />

For me, it may have been the<br />

time when a friend of my uncle let<br />

me ride shotgun in his new Series<br />

1 Jaguar XKE. I was just a skinny,<br />

gangly pre-teen at the time. Getting<br />

into the passenger seat was<br />

akin to slinking into a submarine,<br />

or so I thought. The shape of the<br />

E-Type was pure, unadulterated<br />

voluptuousness. I felt like I was taking<br />

Gina Lollobrigida on a country<br />

run. The sound of the Jag’s straight<br />

6, coupled with the rush of acceleration,<br />

was indeed exhilarating.<br />

Soon, motor racing became a<br />

passion of mine. I subscribed to<br />

both the American weekly newspaper<br />

Competition Press & Autoweek<br />

and the British newspaper Motoring<br />

News, also a weekly publication. I<br />

read every word of each issue, classifieds<br />

ads and all, striving to gain as<br />

much racing knowledge as a country<br />

schoolboy could at the time.<br />

I received my driver’s license<br />

the year after I turned 16 years old.<br />

One of my first ventures into the<br />

world of unfettered freedom was to<br />

journey out to Lime Rock Park in<br />

northwest Connecticut to experience<br />

a motor race first hand -- to actually<br />

see the cars and drivers I had<br />

been reading about all this time.<br />

After I paid my admission at the<br />

gate, I inched my Dad’s Mustang<br />

over the dirt road approaching the<br />

bridge over the course. As I crested<br />

the bridge, a Formula B car, driven<br />

at racing speeds, passed underneath<br />

on entrance to the flat-out<br />

last corner. The sound, and the ensuing<br />

feeling, was intoxicating. The<br />

bridge vibrated like a tuning fork.<br />

The hairs at the back of my neck<br />

stood at attention. My ears resonated<br />

from the staccato shriek of<br />

the engine. I was hooked, big time.<br />

From 1968 to 1972, I ventured<br />

out to Lime Rock for all the major<br />

races. That essentially meant the<br />

Trans-Am Series races and the Continental<br />

Championship (Formula<br />

5000) races. I remember the furious<br />

battles in the Trans-Am Series,<br />

with premier drivers such as Dan<br />

Gurney, Parnelli Jones, Mark Donohue,<br />

Peter Revson, George Follmer,<br />

and Swede Savage duking it out on<br />

the tight Lime Rock circuit.<br />

The F5000 Championship was<br />

contested by David Hobbs, Sam<br />

Posey, Tony Adamowicz, John Cannon,<br />

and Dickie Smothers (of the<br />

Smothers Brothers), among other<br />

drivers. Both series had a 5.0-liter<br />

engine displacement limit, and it<br />

was thrilling to hear and see these<br />

beasts being manhandled around<br />

the circuit by the top drivers of the<br />

day.<br />

The golden years of Trans-Am<br />

Around that time, a new racer<br />

could be seen around the paddock.<br />

A local Connecticut resident, he<br />

was a bit older than most of the other<br />

racers; in his late 40s, he already<br />

had another established profession.<br />

His name was Paul Newman,<br />

and word<br />

around the<br />

pits was that<br />

he was very<br />

serious about<br />

racing, and<br />

didn’t want to<br />

be distracted<br />

by star-struck<br />

fans. Everyone<br />

respected this.<br />

Paul Newman at<br />

Lime Rock<br />

I spotted Paul twice at Lime<br />

Rock, once while walking through<br />

the paddock with my buddy. I gave<br />

Paul a simple “Hi, Paul” as we<br />

crossed paths, and he shot back<br />

“Hello, fellas.” The second time was<br />

when I was utilizing Lime Rock’s<br />

primitive lavatory system (basically

aiming at a wall), when Paul came in and stood right<br />

next to me. He started “aiming” also. And as a gentleman<br />

in training . . . I didn’t look. Neither did Paul.<br />

When I was a senior in high school, our French<br />

language teacher organized a trip to New York City to<br />

visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art to view a display<br />

of French Impressionist paintings. Artists such as Van<br />

Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Manet<br />

were featured. While the tour lasted only a few hours,<br />

we students were also offered several hours of “free<br />

time” in the big city. Yes, you read that right. A large<br />

class of New England high school students was allowed<br />

to explore the streets and neighborhoods of New York<br />

City unchaperoned. What could possibly go wrong?<br />

Fortunately, nothing did go<br />

wrong, and I had a plan. Three<br />

of my mates and I trotted<br />

downtown, over to Le Chanteclair<br />

restaurant at 18 East 49th<br />

Street in mid-town Manhattan.<br />

Le Chanteclair was owned by<br />

René and Maurice Dreyfus.<br />

René was the Grand Prix driver<br />

won the prestigious Monaco<br />

Grand Prix in 1930, piloting<br />

a privateer Bugatti to victory<br />

around the claustrophobic circuit of the Principality,<br />

beating the factory Bugatti team in the process.<br />

We were all French language students, so we had a<br />

rudimentary knowledge of the language; enough to<br />

read, and maybe converse, some basic French. Trust<br />

me, it only came in handy when we read the menu and<br />

managed NOT to order the proprietor as an entrée.<br />

I distinctly remember that we all ordered boeuf<br />

bourguignon, a classic French peasant dish that has<br />

slowly refined into haute cuisine. Of course, we had a<br />

bottle of wine with our meal; a suitable claret, as I recall,<br />

and the maître d’ indulged us by letting me check<br />

the label, smell the expelled cork, and conduct the<br />

required approval tasting. Suffice to say, I thoroughly<br />

enjoyed the experience.<br />

Shortly thereafter, we were all ensconced in the<br />

bus that took us home to our idyllic, safe lives in our<br />

quaint New England towns. This all happened during<br />

the formative years of my adult life, and the “thing that<br />

appealed to my visceral self” has remained ever since.<br />

To this day, I still appreciate the most excellent E-Type,<br />

French impressionist art, fine dining, and especially<br />

motorsport, as competed by gentlemen racers.<br />

So what was the spark that ignited your passion for<br />

sports cars, especially Porsches? And to what journeys<br />

in your life did it lead?<br />

Back to Ben Wheeler: <strong>April</strong> Sunday Drive Preview<br />

By Tom Martin, Sunday Drive Chair<br />

This month the Sunday Drive Program<br />

ventures to a quaint village in East Texas. “Back to Ben<br />

Wheeler” – The East Texas Tour brings Mavericks back<br />

to the little town that could.<br />

Ben Wheeler was once on the verge of becoming a<br />

ghost town until Brooks Gremmels resurrected it into<br />

an eclectic hamlet. Craftsmen, artisans, and musicians<br />

have since settled here. Bikers, classic car and sports<br />

car owners now congregate in the center of town. Ben<br />

Wheeler is also the Wild Hog Capital of Texas. And you<br />

know what that means, right? Yessir, every autumn Ben<br />

Wheeler hosts “Hog Fest”, a celebration of . . . well,<br />

nothing really. But it’s a darn good time to celebrate.<br />

And if that isn’t eclectic enough, Ben Wheeler just<br />

hosted the “<strong>2016</strong> Motorized Barstool Races” last month.<br />

I reckon us Porsche owners will fit in just fine.<br />

The Drive will be held on Sunday, <strong>April</strong> 24. Start and<br />

end point is the parking lot of Moore’s Store, located at<br />

1535 FM 279 in Ben Wheeler. Start time is 1:00 pm, so<br />

plan to get there a little early to sign up and attend the<br />

Drivers’ Briefing.<br />

Kurt Reuland has put together another stimulating<br />

drive, a 73.1-mile excursion through the rolling backroads<br />

of East Texas. If we’re lucky, we’ll get some bluebonnet<br />

spotting time in, as the Drive occurs at the peak<br />

of the bluebonnet season. Then we’ll head on back to<br />

Moore’s Store for some comfort food, and some of the<br />

best cobbler around. Ben Wheeler and neighboring<br />

village Edom are known for their homemade pies and<br />

cobbler.<br />

As always, attendees are not required to dine at the<br />

destination; one can always take their cobbler and eat<br />

it at home. Go ahead, be like that.<br />

If you plan to attend, please drop us a RSVP before<br />

the Drive. Just shoot an e-mail to tours@mavpca.org<br />

with a simple “I will be attending (by myself, with my<br />

wife, with a friend, etc.)” and you’re in. When you RSVP,<br />

it gives us an accurate count to supply to the proprietor<br />

of the destination, plus three days before the Drive, you<br />

will receive an e-mail with the following attachments:<br />

a Garmin .gdb file of the<br />

route, a route overview, and<br />

turn-by-turn instructions.<br />

Hope to see you and your<br />

Porsche at the Sunday<br />

Drive!<br />

Maverick Monthly Social: A Porsche Valentine<br />

By Stephanie Ho, Monthly Social Chair<br />

Photos by George Luxbacher<br />

Our first Porsche Valentine Event<br />

brought about 130 Mavericks back to Lavendou French<br />

Bistro. The owner, Pascal Cayet, and his staff did a phenomenal<br />

job of taking care of all. The evening started<br />

with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and was followed<br />

by an exceptional meal. Pascal went to great trouble in<br />

providing an open menu for dinner selections, and<br />

ensured that his staff was able to handle all the orders<br />

coming in at the same time. He also graciously extended<br />

a 25% discount on food to all Mavericks. It was a<br />

perfectly wonderful evening, full of fun-loving great<br />

friends, outstanding fine dining, and an array of stunning<br />

Porsche Valentines in the reserved parking lot!<br />

Sincere thanks to Pascal Cayet from the Porsche Club<br />

for his hospitality, generosity, and strong support of the<br />

Mavericks!!<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

“Live in the moment, capture the moment,<br />

share the moment.”<br />

Individuals who practice some form of meditation<br />

or mindfulness in their daily lives have likely held to<br />

the beginning of that idea regularly.<br />

As a Porsche owner and member of the Maverick<br />

Region, I encourage you to practice the entire thought<br />

to the benefit of all of our members.<br />

Driving your Porsche, or even looking at it in your<br />

garage while it is at rest, provides opportunities for a<br />

unique type of mindfulness shared only with fellow<br />

Porschephiles.<br />

As the editor of <strong>Slipstream</strong>, I look forward to you<br />

sharing those many moments that you experience with<br />

your Porsche for the enjoyment of all of your fellow<br />

Mavericks. This issue is full of those types of moments.<br />

Whether it’s a particularly involved drive, an interesting<br />

photo opportunity, or even the sound of your<br />

Porsche starting up, capture that moment in words<br />

and pictures and send it to editor@mavpca.org so I can<br />

“share your moment” with our members.<br />

One of our signature events - May at Mayo’s - is actually<br />

in <strong>April</strong> this year, <strong>April</strong> 30 to be exact. This<br />

is your chance to shine up and show off your<br />

Porsche, or simply come to enjoy the sights and<br />

vote for your favorites.<br />

Activities include a Peoples Choice Concours<br />

(free entry) along with dinner at $25/person<br />

(kids 12 and under are free). Please get more information,<br />

and make certain to RSVP, and pay in advance on<br />

our web site at mav.pca.org.<br />

This spring has provided great weather for our initial<br />

driving events. One of our recent Drivers’ Education<br />

events at MotorSports Ranch in Cresson provided<br />

the dynamic cover photo for this issue.<br />

Chris Tabor, our Region DE Chair, provided this<br />

quote from Mark Schwobel: “I participated in my first DE<br />

event with my son last weekend and I need to share our total<br />

appreciation for the phenomenal opportunity these events afford<br />

members. Every part of the event surpassed my expectations.<br />

The organization, instruction, facility and hospitality<br />

were first-rate. We are so fortunate to be members of the Maverick<br />

Region and have the opportunity to spend such contentrich<br />

time with so many generous, quality people”.<br />

If one of your resolutions for this year was to get<br />

your Porsche on a road course, our DE program is the<br />

place for you!<br />

Finally, in our continuing <strong>Slipstream</strong> initiative - Mav<br />

Photos of the Month - the focus for this month was interiors.<br />

Thanks to our members for submitting these<br />

great photos shown on page 31.<br />

For the <strong>April</strong> issue, our focus is engines, so<br />

send your photo submissions to editor@mavpca.<br />

org or post them on our Maverick Region<br />

Porsche Club of America Facebook group page<br />

by <strong>April</strong> 10. Newer model owners may have to<br />

get below those plastic covers!<br />
