BEING A PORSCHE MASTER
TECHNICIAN ISN’T ROCKET SCIENCE.
ON SECOND THOUGHT, MAYBE IT IS.
Afterall, we know a thing or two about velocity and we understand G-forces
better than most. We service Porsche’s on-board computers that are more
powerful than those found on America’s first spacecraft. Oh, and even
though our vehicles never experience a weightless environment, we always
do our best to provide a wait-less experience while your Porsche is in our care.

As usual, I am waiting not just till the last
minute, but well PAST the last minute to write
my article. Pam and Wendy have reminded me
many times, but we have all been very busy the
last few weeks. This past weekend, Maverick
Region put on the largest event we have done in
quite some time – probably since the Parade
back in 1987.
It was over a year in the planning, and literally hundreds of
people came together and gave it their all to make the 2001 Club
Race at Texas Motor Speedway a fabulous success. I am sure there
will be articles next month, but since the past weeks have been
consumed with nothing else, that seems like an appropriate topic
for my article.
Wendy was the Worker Coordinator, and it seemed like a
daunting task. It wasn’t easy asking people to take off work on
Friday so they could volunteer their time at a race track. Getting
them to show up would surely be very tough. But the volunteers
DID show up. And in droves! There were plenty of workers for all
the necessary positions. Many thanks to all those who were able
to help us all put on an incredible event!
But now as the year winds down,we in Maverick Region find
ourselves needing a few more volunteers. Not at a particular
event, but to help out the club year-round.
There will be several positions opening up over the next few
months, and if you have a particular talent that you would like to
share with the rest of us, or if there is a position you would be
interested in, please let me know.
Our events for the year are winding down now, with only
Founder’s Day and the Holiday Party (graciously hosted by Lee &
Linda Wilkins) standing before us. Next year will hold plenty of
opportunity for even more fun events. The planning for these is
But come on out to Founder’s Day and the Holiday
Party and join the fun!

It’s hard to believe, but the Holiday Season
is upon us already. It seems like just yesterday we
were all thinking about the Y2K Bug, and now
we’re less than 2 months away from 2002. This
year itself has flown by, although time did seem
to stop for a moment that fateful day in
September. But we are now moving ahead again,
and I, for one, am looking forward to some
Holiday cheer to take the gloom away.
On a similar note, the racing season is over for the year in
Maverick-Land, but there still are a few more events to look
forward to. One being the Fall Foliage Tour November 2nd
through 4th. I know you’ll be getting this issue within minutes of
the start of the Tour, but last-minute ‘tourees’ will be welcomed!
Check out page 3 for details.
The next thing left on the calendar is the Founder’s Day
Banquet November 10th. (Just look on page 5 for more details on
this one.) The banquet is an extra-special event that everyone in
the Club should try to attend. George and I attended our first one
last year; the food was wonderful, the raffle and door prizes were
great, and the awards presentation was also a lot of fun.
The highlight of my evening was winning the top door prize, a
beautifully-framed collage of Porsches, signed by Hans Peter
Porsche! Who knows what YOU might win, so please try to
attend. If you do come, be sure to tell George how old he looks,
as it will be his 33rd that day! (tee-hee).
An exciting Happy Hour will follow soon after on November
15th. This one is sure to bring a crowd, as it will be at Malibu
SpeedZone! (Page 2 will fill you in). Kudos to Tinker, Dennis and
Ben for setting this one up, as it’s sure to be a great time.
Finally, the Holiday Party December 8th will top off the year
with food, fun, and lots of cheer. (More details can be found on
The Porsche Lunches are also an honorable mention that I
couldn’t forget. There’s still a lot left to do, so get on out there and
join the group for 2001’s final festivities. I’ll be the first to say,
Happy Holidays already!
by Andy Mears, Maverick Region Secretary
October’s board meeting began almost on
time and finished early, the pre-meeting dinner
was great and the fresh baked cookies for dessert
rounded out a great meeting. Wonder what
you’ve been missing by not attending the board
First item on the “need to know” agenda
was Brian Scudder’s club race report. As of the
board meeting about 80 drivers were signed up for the club race
and about 50 drivers had signed up for the drivers education
program. Also, there were over 200 people signed up for the
dinner Saturday night and that the rented chicane would be
arriving on Thursday afternoon.
Next, Charlie Davis updated the board on the status of the
914 Ramble scheduled for October 25-28. He reported that
everything is ready and that the final coordination between the
914 Ramble and Charity “Run Whatcha Brung” autocross had
been worked out to everyone’s liking. He also noted that the
proceeds from the AX would be divided between two charities.
The next reports were for Rally School and Round-up 2002
given by Teri Davis. The Rally School is planned for a north Fort
Worth location in January 2002, and Teri is looking for a new
location to host Round-up. So, if you happen to know of a place
that can accommodate a big group, not too far away and has a
variety of activities, contact Teri.
Next, James Shoffit gave the treasurer’s report for Bob
Knight, who is out of the country. And Wendy gave reports for
several people including one for Ted Glover who is coordinating
the Fall Foliage Tour the first weekend of November. A motion
was passed by the board not to charge a fee for the Tour. Then
she reported on the success of Time Trial #6 which had about 30
people and made about $500 for the club. Lastly, she report that
the 2002 scheduling committee will start publishing information
about the events that will be happening in the early part of next
year. So, remember to watch Slipstream and the web site for
The meeting closed, in record time, at 8:20 PM.

Autocross #6 - Standridge Stadium
by Wendy Shoffit
Wendy & James Shoffit timing cars while Christi Sears looks on.
September 16th, a mere 5 days after cowardly terrorists
attacked New York, Washington, D.C., and the spirit of every
American. In those 5 days, there were discussions about possibly
canceling the last autocross of the season. It was finally decided
that we would not let the terrorists steal any more of our time
than they already had. President Bush has been urging us to go on
with our lives. He promised the terrorists would be dealt with. We
are now in the throes of just that. So, with our American flag
proudly displayed, we opened registration that Sunday morning.
Fifty-five others felt the way that I did. I’m glad we didn’t
cancel the event. Not only did it give us a chance to do something
we love to do, but gave us the opportunity to vent our frustrations
and bond as a group. Course designer, Cody Sears, had briefly
considered adding a “bonus” Osama bin Laden cone that would
subtract 2 seconds from your time if you hit it. He reconsidered,
although I, personally, would’ve loved to have taken a crack at it!
The drivers’ meeting had a moment of silence for the victims
and heroes. We also took up a donation to send to the Red Cross.
$100 might not seem like much, but I’m sure whoever receives it
will thank those who gave it.
With competitive spirit in tact, we all tackled the course with
abandon. Cody’s design was fun, but a lot of work for those of us
sans power steering! My arms ached after my final run and it wasn’t
one of my better showings, but it was worth it. Autocrossing is
still one of my favorite things to do.
Congratulations to Ed and Jan Mayo who, once again,
received the top times of day for the men’s and ladies’ classes. You
guys worked hard and deserved it! Watch out, though, next
year… there are a few drivers hot on your heels!
At the end of the day, everyone seemed to be feeling a little
bit better than when they first arrived. I guess that’s just what
happens when you’re with friends. I know I appreciate all of you
who came out and showed your support. It’s not just the cars…
it’s the people again and again and again! See you next year!

This number may be insignificant to most, but to me it represents
my first sanctioned and legal attempt at controlling a very fine
automobile at high rates of speed and precision control. Whatever the
description, it is racing. The above number is my best elapsed time at
Time Trial #6. It is by most standards a less than glorious time, but it’s
a starting point in learning how to appreciate my new 1973 911E.
My wife and I purchased this car after a long and sometimes
painful search. She wanted a Targa but I was set on a coupe. We compromised
on this car because of its genealogy and sunroof. I am not
new to Porsches but I am very new to 911s. The previous Porsche I
owned was a 1973 914 1.7, which I still regret selling 20 years ago.
I regularly operate vehicles which travel several times faster than the
911, but the air traffic controllers don’t ever ask me to perform a
hairpin turn on takeoff or aim at a cone just to slide or steer around it.
The weather at the time trial was a bit cool in the morning - what
most aviators and sports car enthusiasts consider the start of a perfect
day for the respective activities - but by afternoon the sun had
warmed things up to short-sleeve weather with just a few fair-weather
clouds. In the cool morning, though, my enthusiasm began to build
as I looked forward to helping setup the course and equipment for
the day’s events. I watched as many PCA members arrived in their
various liveries. The field was also sprinkled with other sports cars of
European, American and Japanese lineage. Everyone was interested in
each other’s cars and as I listened, it seemed there wasn’t the
competitive spirit I have been used to seeing around the professional
IRL and other race events. I was greeted by several other attendees
and I recognized several from long ago when I had my 914. Others I
had met or seen at the last Autocross.
The driver’s meeting set the tone for the day. Wendy Shoffit and
Bill Dugan went over the rules for a safe operation and right up front
stated that unsafe actions will not be tolerated. After the serious part
was over, the rest of the briefing consisted of the layout of the course,
rules for the drivers and pairing drivers with instructors who desired
them. The jovial attitude was great until about the time each
contestant entered the track. Then all the stops came out. Friends
analyzed each other’s movements through the course. Novices hoped
not to be too embarrassed by foolish mistakes. I just wanted a good
run in order to learn how my car and I were supposed to behave.
John Halla was my instructor to familiarize me with the track
and introduce me to my first event. He showed me the basics of
keeping the car from leaving the course and somewhat under control.
After all, I had owned the car a whole four days. By the way John,
“Thanks for taking the time to show me the cones.” My instructor
for the actual runs was Charlie Davis. He tried to penetrate my
thick skull with important need-to-know information. He was able to
impart a lot of his knowledge and experience. Things happened so
fast that I’m not sure how much I really remembered. “Thank you
Charlie!” The runs were exhilarating and challenging and doing what
I was supposed to do wasn’t a problem as long as I had all four left feet
and hands out of the way. I learned that you don’t try to turn and
brake hard simultaneously at a high rate of speed or you will be going
at a high rate of speed facing the wrong way.
Time Trial #6 Results 10/6/01
During my work period, on turns one and two, I was lucky enough
to visit and learn from Cody Sears. We watched as drivers put their cars
through the paces and negotiated turns. Watching was as educational
and exciting as actually driving the course. Cody pointed out good and
not so good negotiations of each turn. There were some spectacular
spinouts in turn four and some downright misses on the course. It all
seems so easy on the map. “Now do I go right or left of that cone?”
By the end of the day I was filled with excitement and satisfaction.
Even during the drive home I had a more conscious feeling of driving
and felt more aware of my car and driving conditions. I also found
that driving a Porsche doesn’t come back as naturally as I had hoped.
When I owned my 914, I felt I could handle the car pretty well, but
now I’m not sure if that was youthful arrogance or 20 years of
memory alteration.A few circuits around the course showed me I had
lots to learn and had great instructors to start me on my way.
The people I met were of the highest caliber and truly fun to be
around. I am looking forward to many more PCA events.
A View From The Corscrew:
Audi Dominates Laguna Seca
By Bill and Marilyn Stafford
Preface: This race was on the weekend prior to the Attack
on America. As we sit down to write this article, there is a sense
of loss of innocence that has not been felt since the Vietnam
War. We will not beleaguer the events of these frightful
days, but we wish to say that we will not be intimidated into
avoiding large spectator venues such as the American LeMans
Series, nor should you. This is America – you can’t beat us
Race: As the American LeMans series winds downs for
2001, Audi continued their domination of the series by conquering
the first three places on the 29 car-starting grid. The
cars were having trouble getting the tires up to temperature
during qualifying, so there weren’t any stellar times posted.
(For example, an 11-year-old GTP car running in the vintage
race would have qualified next to last in LMP). The number 1
GT 3rd place Suhr/Maassen Alex Job Porsche.
Series leading factory Audi grabbed the pole, but the privateer
Gulf/Brocade Audi piloted by Stefan Johansson snatched the
second position thus splitting the factory effort. The
Champion Audi driven by Johnny Herbert and Andy Wallace
started on the third row. The ever present “fly in the ointment”
Panoz’ cars started 4th and 5th. This fact filled the Audi Team
with unbridled enthusiasm that unfortunately extended to the
foot-head connection at the first turn where cold tires and the
desire to lead the first lap put the first and third qualifier
Audi’s out into the dirt at turn 2 leaving the Jan Magnussen
Panoz leading the field.
The race was the most exciting LMP race we’ve seen in a
long time. The rivalries between the Audi Team and the Panoz
Team is getting down and dirty as the “cajones” factor emerges.
There was as much “rubbing” going on as you will see in a
NASCAR race, albeit with less finesse. The action pretty much
ended when the Biela Audi sorta tapped the race leading Panoz
into the pit entry wall. Magnussen was not amused. Oh, I
almost forgot to mention the two Cadillac LMP’s, which are
now referred to as “Test Platforms”- anything is better than
“Boat Anchors”. They were the source of numerous criticisms
during the race on Sunday. Boris Saids’ comment over the
track PA regarding the race conduct of the 2 Cadillac LMP
drivers and how they received their competition licenses from
a vending machine probably did not make the press releases.
Well, they shouldn’t have punted him off the track while he
was in the middle of a challenge for the lead in his class.
The smaller prototype class (LMP675) saw all three cars go
out with damage or mechanical failures. However the Dick
Barbour Racing crew replaced the rear suspension of their
Reynard 01Q/Judd and drivers Didier de Radigues and Milka
Duno were able to get back on course and finish the race for first
in the class. Milka Duno, former Women’s Global GT racer,
qualified the Dick Barbour Racing setting the class qualifying lap
A little “rubbing”.
Porsche - BMW battle.
ecord. Claudia Huertgen had the fastest qualifying time for the
Roock-Knight Hawk Racing Lola B22K/40 Nissan. That’s the
way to go LADIES!!!! (Extra comment from the Pit Rat.)
In the other classes, the really cool Saleen S7R driven by
Franz Konrad and Terry Borcheller took their fifth class pole and
overshadowed the 2 factory Corvettes for first in the GTS class.
The GT Class fight was awesome. BMW Motorsport’s four
liter V8’s #42 and 43 started side-by-side on the front row of the
GT class and followed by the Luhr/Maassen #23 Alex Job Racing
Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The Prototype Technology Group BMWs
were in the 4th and 5th positions followed by 5 Porsches
including Randy Pobst driving the #22 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
Even though the top 3 cars finished the way they started it was a
hard fought battle with a LOT of paint being swapped.
The Trans-Am Race was won by rookie Justin Bell (son of
Derek) in a very loud Corvette. Brian Simo driving the Qvale
Mangusta was second followed by Lou Gigliotti (from Dallas)
in a Corvette. Bob Ruman received the hard-charging award.
Scott Pruett returned to the Trans Am Series driving a Jaguar
XKR. This was his first return to Trans-Am racing since his
championship season in 1994.
Pit Rat Notes:
-Hawaiian Tropic Girls at all ALMs’ races next year with
a preview at the Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta this year. Who
needs them? Look for future article by the Pit Rat.
-Laguna Seca is under going major changes to make it
Formula 1 compliant. Will there be 2 Formula 1 races in the U.S.?
-Sears Point date for next year is in jeopardy as the usual
date has been given to Washington DC for a “parking lot”
race. Securing another date at Sears Point may be difficult
because of other scheduling dates for CART and NASCAR.
(This may change due to the recent developments in the War
-ALMS will not be returning to Dallas and the Texas
Motor Speedway (Empty stands do not look good on TV).
-Repeatable quote heard on the track radio during
Qualifying after one of the trick V8 BMW’s hand grenaded
the motor on the track. “Please return all parts retrieved to
the Team, they don’t want them to end up on Ebay”.
They stayed in groups!

Improving My 2001 Boxster S
by Keith Olcha
Keith Olcha trying out his upgrades at AX #6.
A number of you have asked me to report on what I've done and
am doing to my Boxster. We'll I've finally done enough to report some
recommendations that will basically fit a 996 also to some degree.
I took delivery of my 2001 Boxster S a little over a year ago on August
8th. I waited 8 months for it and ordered it exactly the way I wanted. I am
picky with what I call the ergonomics of street and track sporty driving. To
me, the steering wheel grip, hand position, pedal layouts and feel, shifter
throw, effort and precision are as important as the rest of the car.
Once the luster of a new car wore off, I realized I was not happy with
much of the above.Not showstoppers,but there were areas of improvement.
The steering wheel was the only thing that was perfect as is. For those of you
with 4-spoke wheels (even 1999 996's) upgrading to a 3-spoke will make a
huge improvement. It even looks better.
Next were the pedals. They really needed a little more surface area, and
an adjustment of the gas pedal height to allow for optimal heel-and-toe and
feel. I chose a set of OMP aluminum pedal covers, and placed a 1/4"
plywood shim under the gas pedal to get the right height. There's a little
more brake pedal area, and the gas and brake are a little closer together, and
with the gas pedal raised up; I'm pleased with transition between brake
and gas. This is something everyone can do to customize their driving
environment. My wife, Karen, and I share similar tastes and since she
actually drives the car more than I we're both happy.
The Boxster shifter is harder and more vague than the 996 because the
cable is longer due to mid-versus-rear-engine (the transmission is closer to
the driver on 996). I've driven a 996 recently for a couple of days and, while
easier to shift, the throw could be shorter and more precise. I chose the EVO
short-shift kit with needle bearings. While it's still harder to shift a Boxster,
the throw is shorter and more precise. The B&M replacement shifter is a
better idea if money is no object but it's about $175 more than the EVO.
John Cochran has that one, and I'd recommend it also.
All new Porsche 996 and Boxster transmissions come filled with nonsynthetic
gear oil. Trust me, my Boxster buddy and Jedi-Master Mechanic,
John Gladwill, will confirm that. The motors come with synthetic, not the
trannys. I drained and refilled mine with synthetic Mobil 1 75-90 GL-5.
It didn't make a damned bit of difference in the shift quality. The cable
length and routing is the problem, period. But after one year- the stock
fluid was quite clean, and I'd recommend converting to synthetic after the
break-in, but then literally going 2-3 years between changes.
FYI- I've used Redline, Swepco, and Mobil 1 gear oil in my 911s over
the years and they all work very well, without much difference in feel. I do,
for the record use Redline in my Blue RSA. The other thing I did recently
was to flush the brakes to begin using ATE gold in the Boxster. Again, no
change in feel, as you'd expect this time.
One more item is cleaning the radiators in the front of 996s and
Boxsters. You can't believe the crud that gets in there between the coolant
and A/C radiators on each side behind the front bumper. I'd say they need
to be cleaned every 18 months to 2 years or it will make the car run hotterliterally.
There is no other way to accomplish this task other than removing
the entire front bumper cover and dismantling the scoops, etc and then
separating the two radiators on each side and using compressed air or a
moderate water stream. It's a 4-5 hour job, but you can do it yourself.
So if you've got a 996 or a 986, I'd recommend the following:
1) Three-spoke steering wheel
2) Pedal covers (OMP, SPARCO, etc.)
3) Shift Kit (EVO, B&M)
4) Synthetic gear-oil and ATE Brake fluid for peace of mind.
5) Clean Radiators at least every 2 years.
Next item is to improve that awful stereo. In the 2002 cars you now can
get a Bose system. I'm going to replace the power-amplifier and the front
dash and door speakers. I'm not doing a separate sub-woofer because I want
every inch of space in the trunks and the passenger compartment and with
the road noise I just want more volume. Most of the distortion is not so
much the Nokia speakers as the cheapo power-amp. My sales-consultant at
the dealership I bought my car from used to be in the car-audio business.
He warned me, but I wasn't ready for a stereo as bad as it is in such a
high-end car. I have the super-deluxe HiFi sound option- mind-you. The
tuner and CD are fine,but I need the volume with the top down.By the way-
John Cochran, Shawn Collenberg, and Noby Takahashi (That I know of)
have upgraded stereos and the results have been excellent. Lee Wilkins
probably has one by now, also.

Happy Hour At Ciudad
By Brian Boss
The Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain (co-chair),
Tinker Edwards (chair) & Ben Witry (co-chair)
I learned something
interesting at the
Hour (well I probably
learned several things
but one in particular is
relevant). To wit: how
are selected. I
always imagined there
was some official
process where potential scribes were selected based on their expertise
and writing ability then pre-assigned events to cover. Not so. Half
way through the post Happy Hour dinner I was chatting with Tinker
Edwards as she table-hopped around the room and, next thing I
knew, I had a deadline and a word count just like Hunter S.
Thompson. So, you can attribute any minor inaccuracies in this
account to my lack of prior knowledge that I would be recording the
events for posterity.
This month’s Happy Hour destination was Ciudad, an upscale
Mexican restaurant and bar in Turtle Creek Village shopping center.
Although I knew the place by reputation, this was my first visit. For
those non Spanish speakers, Ciudad means city en Espanol but it is
also used by Mexicans to refer to Mexico City, much like New Yorkers
say “The City”. One refreshing feature (especially for a south of LBJ
location) was the ample secure parking, both valet and self-park.
When I arrived a little before six thirty, there were already ten or
twelve new 911’s and Boxsters out front in an area set aside for
Porsche parking. The Happy Hour crew seems to favor the newer
cars so I am hereby issuing a call for more of my fellow classic aircooled
owners to bring their cars to these gatherings.
Inside, the décor of the bar mirrors the food (more on that
later), classy Mexican but with a sort of funky, modern twist. I would
guess there were about 50 people in the half of the room reserved for
us, comprising the usual mixture of members, prospective members
and guests. I have missed the last few events but the growth has certainly
continued. Remembering my first Happy Hour two years ago,
I recall about 15 people came. As always, whatever the turnout,
everyone caught up with old friends and met a few new ones.
Be sure to join us for
our next Happy Hour:
November 15th at 6:30 P.M.
at Malibu SpeedZone!

After an hour or so at the bar about half the group sat down for
dinner. Ciudad is NOT Tex-Mex. It is more in the Mexico City style
(hence the name). Without turning this into restaurant review, just
let me say every dish our group tried was imaginative in its conception
and perfectly executed with top quality ingredients. As good as
it is, Ciudad faces some stiff competition in its price range. I will be
curious to see if it has the staying power to survive after its novelty
wears off and the “hip” crowd moves on to the next hot trend.
It was a pleasure to be reminded how much fun Maverick
Happy Hours are. I guarantee any member who attends one will find
plenty of people to talk with. Plus, it’s worth coming out just to
watch Tinker and Lanean work the crowd. You might even get
recruited for something.

Porsching - Romantic Excursions
by Chris Welty, Hudson-Valley Region, PCA
Many people believe that the relationship between a
Porsche and its owner is entirely monogamous, and that
spouses, or anyone approximating this state, can tend to get
in the way. This is actually not true, and there are many
truly romantic and exciting things two people can do
together with their Porsche.
The first step in realizing this goal is understanding what romanticism
really is. There are many definitions of the word, but human language is such that
a dictionary definition is not always the right path toward meaning. Each person
has their own idea of what romantic is, and these ideas are frequently quite
different. My wife, for example, thinks moonlight walks on the beach are romantic.
Such an excursion wouldn’t be very romantic for me since I’d spend the whole
time glancing anxiously back at the parking lot to see if anyone was breaking into
Romantic notions are typically not subject to compromise, either. You
might think, for example, that my problems with the moonlit walk on the beach
could be alleviated by turning it into a moonlit drive on the beach. I, however,
would be too anxious that the salt water might get on the car and rust out the floor
pan,and of course I'd have to spend the whole next day washing all the damn sand
out of every nook and cranny. Sand is such a pain in the neck.
Does this mean that I am not romantic? Not at all, not at all. I'm
considered by many to be a hopeless romantic, it's just that my notion of romance
is different than that typically found in Danielle Steele or Jane Austin novels. For
me, one of the most romantic activities a couple can share together with their
Porsche is bleeding the brakes.
Brake bleeding has long been a favorite activity for active couples who don't
mind getting a little dirty together. I have an acquaintance who claims his wife's
wedding vows included, "love, cherish, and pump the brake pedal," and I know
several people who say they got married just to be sure there'd be someone to help
bleed the brakes. That, however, is a common mistake.
While brake bleeding is a very intimate activity, you can’t take it for granted.
When I was dating, I was always very careful in approaching my dates on the
subject of brake bleeding. I found that expecting someone to come home with me
and pump the pedal on the first date was frequently unrealistic, even after an
expensive dinner and a Broadway Show. I would often go to great lengths
impressing someone just to get them into my garage, and when there I paid extra
attention to safety and cleanliness.
Once I was married, I soon began to expect my wife to help me bleed my
brakes whenever I desired. No expensive dinners, no Broadway shows, no great
lengths. In fact, before long I would come home from work expecting to have
dinner ready and waiting for me, with a good bleeding session to follow. I would
try to explain how important it was for a car to have frequent brake bleedings, and
that you couldn't let them go too long without it - especially track cars. At this
point I cared less for safety and cleanliness, spilling brake fluid all over the floor
and sometimes leaving the car teetering on a couple jacks.
Eventually this casual and callous attitude began to take its toll. My cars
would go months with contaminated brake fluid, and the topic of bleeding
became a sore one at home. I would stand in the kitchen, silently staring at my
wife not wanting to ask, and she would pretend like she didn't know why I was
What almost destroyed my marriage was the "EZ Bleed" (TM) system. I
think it was Kevin Gross who turned me on to this, back in the days when the
Porsche e-mail discussion list had fewer than a hundred people on it and we
hadn't had every discussion more than twice yet (so I was still actually reading it).
I don't blame him, his intentions were good. This system, much like the handpump
vacuum bleeder, enables one person to bleed the brakes fairly easily. I was
soon bleeding my brakes more than I ever had before.
My wife became suspicious. I no longer asked her to help me, and I never
stood around like a hungry dog hoping she would spontaneously decide she was
in the brake bleeding mood. She was sure I had rented out a garage somewhere
and had found someone else. I didn't care, since all my cars had firm brake
pedals. Before long, though, I began to recall wistfully the days of saying to my
wife, "Pump. Hold. OK, again..." ad infinitum. I started to think how much I had
changed since my younger days, and I realized that I had lost something. Bleeding
brakes is not just about flushing old fluid from the brake system, it is about
sharing quality time together. I was certainly not being very romantic anymore.
In a tender and emotional scene my wife and I reconciled, and we bled the
brakes on all our cars in one evening. It was so romantic that I rebuilt my master
brake cylinder the next morning so we could bleed the system again that night.
Romance and Porsches doesn't stop with brake bleeding. It's far less frequent,
but adjusting the clutch cable length is a lot of fun, as is setting the hand
brake, and who could forget those wonderful times push-starting the car when
the solenoid got too hot...
"It's too hot. I should have parked on a hill." Sigh. "OK,I'll get out and push.
You keep it in first and let the clutch out once I get it rolling."
"Ready? Here goes..." Grunt. "AAAAARgh. You're letting the clutch out
"You want to push?"
"Couldn't we have taken the Honda?"
"WHAT?! Grrrrrrr....As soon as I get this knife out of my back I want you
to try second - and wait until it's rolling."
"...LET IT OUT ALREADY!"
There are other things you can do, like taking a spring or fall drive. Or summer.
I don't do winter drives in the Porsche anymore, but we used to. Getting too
old, I guess. That is, the Porsches are getting too old.
I find, while driving in the U.S. where the highway speed limit is about the
speed most people walk, that I have trouble paying attention or even staying
awake. Driving slow requires so little mental processing that I will shift my attention
onto other things very often. This means that when I'm driving either the car
is wandering out of my lane or going fast enough that I have to pay attention,
which brings me to another romantic thing my wife and I share in our Porsche.
"I'm not going that fast."
"100 miles per hour is very fast."
"You don't understand, I'm well below the performance limit of this car.
Why, at Bridgehampton..."
"You are well ABOVE the speed limit of this state, not to mention the
mandatory speed for license revocation."
"Thank you dear."
"... Wake up."
"I'm not sleeping."
"You're not in your lane, either."
"Oh, errr ... I just wanted to see if the road was smoother here."
"Well now we've established that unpaved surfaces are not as smooth as
paved. Maybe we should return to our lane."
"Thank you dear."
I hear that some couples even drive at the track together! At first I thought
this was only the kind of thing you read about in the Panorama "Forum" section,
where no one believes the stuff they write about there really happens, but it's true.
I've seen it,and it's happening more and more these days.We may even try it soon.
All in all, a Porsche itself can facilitate romance in many ways. I suggest that
you get out there and be romantic.

Buffing In Tight Places
By Burnell Curtis, Lone Star Region
After I have washed my car for several months, despite my best
efforts, there will be fine scratches in the paint. In addition to that,
my 1987 Carrera has red enamel paint on it and it tends to turn rosy
with time. No reason to put it off, it is time to get out the buffer and
put a proper shine on the car.
Even though I have a very fine buffer, there are places on the car
that can not be buffed with a conventional buffer. One of those
places is the cowl. Attempt to buff in this area and you will scar the
windshield washers or catch the buffer on the windshield wiper
blades. Another area that is difficult is the bumpers. If the buffer
touches the "smile", or the rubber bumpers, it may burn them.
What to do? Well, you could do these areas by hand. I have
little success with buffing by hand. Maybe I am impatient and
want to move too quickly, but I usually end up with
I have discovered an easy solution to this.
All you need is a standard 3/8" drill and some
inexpensive parts to make a buffer that is very
gentle and easy to use. Start by getting a
"cotton flannel buff" or a "loose section buff".
The diameter should be 4" or 6" at the most.
I usually get my parts from Eastwood, who is
a company that sells supplies to those who
restore cars. Their number is 1-800-345-1178.
The parts numbers for the buffs are 13056 and 13042 for the 4"
canton and the 4" loose buffs. To mount the buff to the drill you will
need a mandrel (part number 13054).
Mount the buff to the mandrel and the mandrel to the drill and
you are ready to go. NO, wait, you need something to use as an
abrasive, which is the same buffing compound that you use with
your standard buffer. I use Meguires #9 for removing the fine
scratches. I use Meguires #2 if the scratches are deep or the paint has
turned rosy over time.
Simply spread a small amount of the buffing compound on the
paint and move the buff over it. You will find that you can not press
the buff too hard to the paint because the buff will collapse. This is
a safety feature that will prevent you from burning the paint. By the
way, if you have a spiral sewn or a sisal buff around, do not
use them. They are too course for paint and they do
I have used this technique many times on many
cars and always been happy with the results. It is
much quicker than by hand and it is safe. After
your have done the buffing, wash the buff
before you use it again because the dry
compound will be too course and leave
scratches in your paint. Happy Buffing!

We at Hope want to tell you how much your continuing support of
our shelter means to us. You have continually assisted us through
the years in so many different ways.
To list a few examples of your dedication and support, you
have donated countless items of furniture, clothing, food, money
contributions often, volunteers to help renovate rooms in the

So many circumstances have given you opportunity time and time
again to prove your unselfish devotion to the cause of helping
battered women and children. And time and time again you have
given whatever was needed to aid a woman in her goal for herself
and her children to become self-sufficient.
Your benefit in August was so greatly appreciated. You are always
