Prez Says

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

The Memorial Day Weekend Club Race

was a magnificent success! This year’s

race went even smoother than last

year’s, and everyone I spoke to attested to

what a great event it was.

This was my first time to drive Texas Motor

Speedway in a DE. I cannot begin to describe

what a thrill it was! Three days of track time

meant that I could learn at my own pace (slow) and gradually

build up speed over the weekend. The Porsche Store, our premier

sponsor, as well as the many other sponsors (see page 17 for list)

gave us excellent support in every facet of the event.

In the mean time, come on out to an event! We have an

autocross, a time trial, a happy hour at Mondo’s in Addison,

and three Porsche lunches in July. In addition to our Porsche

lunches in Addison on the July 30th and in Plano on July 16th,

we will also continue our new habit of having a lunch in

Bedford on July 16th. It will again be at the Good Eats on the

Southeast corner of Bedford Road and 183, starting at 11:30 or

so. Please RSVP to me at james@shoffit.com if you plan to

attend the Bedford lunch. We had two new members (Brant

and Byron Fry) as well as Mark Gluck and Steve Kent show up

for the last one. We had a great time, but had plenty of room

for others!

So, come on out, and join the fun!

...could learn at my own pace (slow) . . .

But the real story of the event was the people – not just the

organizers, but the dozens of volunteers that stepped forward

and helped us out. We were overjoyed to see how many people

pitched in, and truly appreciated all their effort. This contributed

greatly to the overall success of the event.

Which brings me to the next topic – Parade 2004. Since

Maverick Region is hosting Parade in 2004, we are going to

need even more volunteers than we had for the TMS Club

Race! It will be a monumental effort that we have already

started organizing. It will take us the full two years to get ready

for it, so please start thinking about ways you might like to

help. We will be making more specific requests as we figure

out exactly how things will work, and will inform you of our

progress every step of the way.

Because I Said So

by Wendy Shoffit, Editor

I’m speechless...Well, okay...maybe not completely

speechless (as hell has yet to freeze

over)! I have so many wonderful articles

sitting on my desk that I cannot possibly fit

them all in to this month’s issue. I am so grateful

to have all of you thinking about writing articles

(and doing so) without any prompting from

me. I wish I could double this issue to include

everything, but unfortunately that’s not in the budget. So, if

you’ve written something for me and don’t see it in this issue,

don’t despair. I solemnly promise to get them in within the next

few months! As for the rest of you budding columnists, don’t let

this discourage you from putting your thoughts down on paper.

The fall and winter months sometimes get a bit on the lean side

and I don’t want to longingly remember the “good ole days.” Keep

them coming and thanks so much!

Now for some exciting news...we’ve been talking about it all

year and it’s finally here. Late this month we will be leaving for the

Porsche Parade in Boise. There are nearly 30 Maverick Region

members attending, most of whom will be driving. As always,

Parade promises to be a spectacular event. While in Boise, we will

be officially presenting our Parade 2004 bid and proposal. We’ve

already had several meetings regarding the ‘04 event and things

are humming right along. If you want to get involved, contact me

and I’ll help you get to the right person. In the meantime, for

those of us trekking to Boise, Taxi Breithaupt has come up with a

suggestion on how we can do our very own salute to Idaho. She

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Secretary

The meeting was called to order just after

7:00 PM.

First piece of business a motion was

passed to purchase more inventory for the

Goodie Store. Sales have been good and need

to replace what’s been sold. Next, Dennis

Chamberlin discussed the rotation of Happy

Hour location as well as other factors influencing Happy Hour.

He also shared some membership demographics based on

where everyone lives.

Joe McGlohen put forth a recommendation for the

Maverick Region to purchase additional radios as well as

compatible headsets. A motion was passed to purchase 5 radios

and 10 headsets.

After much discussion, a motion was passed to extend use

of the Internet PayPal to other venues. The goal is to offer the

service to anyone that wishes to pay for events using PayPal and

the club would only charge additional fees to cover the cost of

the service. As always, members may continue to pay for events

by cash or check.

has suggested we

all make “potato

hats.” We’ve mentioned

it before,

but now she has a

concrete photo of

what one can look

like (see right).

Just how does she

come up with this

stuff?

Good luck to all the Mavericks attending Parade. I hope we

will all end up with a plethora of trophies to show how great our

region is!

Dear Jan [Mayo],

I would like to thank you for the regular forwarding

of “Slipstream.” I still have my 1988 911, but unfortunately

it is not with me here in Greece. I do however have

the opportunity to derive my joy from it on my periodic

visits to Dallas, which keep me in touch with “home.”

Best regards,

Peter A. Alivizatos, M.D. (Athens, Greece)

Jimmy Carter and Eric Erz reported on their multi-region

concours meeting in Austin and plans are in the works for

a Zone 5 Concours to be held October 19 in Austin and

sponsored by Hill Country Region.

Teri Davis updated us on the plans for the Maverick Region

summer retreat. The location will be “The Cliffs” on Possum

Kingdom Lake the weekend of August 23,24,25. For information

or room reservations contact Teri.

Meeting closed at 8:40 PM. Remember to check the

Maverick website for the most current news and event schedules.

The meetings are open to all PCA members and

Happy Hour At Ciudad

By Stacy Waters

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain,

Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck

For me, one of the highlights of

this month’s Happy Hour

came in the form of a single

statement made by Mark Gluck.

Carrying on small talk as one does

at the beginning of Happy Hour, I

asked Mark why Ciudad was selected

for this month’s event. Mark said

the idea was to create a giant smiley

face pattern across the DFW Metroplex. Okay – good enough. I

like a person with a different sense of humor and therefore Mark

and I get along pretty well.

really learn so much from other members about the different

events such as Autocross, Club Races, Driver Education, Time

Trials, and Tours.

The July Happy Hour will be at Mondo’s, one block north of

the Galleria. I plan to be there for sure. By the way, that is the

left eye of the smiley face!

...learned how to properly pronounce

the vehicle’s name . . .

This initial exchange set the tone for the evening. I met

more unique personalities on this one outing than in all of my

Happy Hours combined – and it proved to be one of the most

exciting events I have attended. The crowd (about 30 large) was

a great mix of all types and the bar staff was almost too generous

with their pour. Do you think that might have had a little something

to do with the fun factor?

The Mexico City-style cuisine was sophisticated and delicious

with a variety of dishes that seemed to please most.

Being a “newbie” to the club, I feel more and more welcome

with each event. My husband insisted that I attend the first

Happy Hour with him a few months ago. I really dreaded it. I

mean, how in the world could I spend a night talking about

Porsches? I just learned how to properly pronounce the vehicle’s

name for goodness sake! But the most pleasant thing happened

on the first Happy Hour night. I made several new friends and

there was no pressure to name every Porsche model. More

importantly, I was spending time with genuinely friendly people

with a variety of interesting stories and Porsche advice. From

then on, I have not missed a Happy Hour. If you haven’t been to

one, I encourage you to do so. It’s quite simply one of the best

ways to become familiar and comfortable with MRPCA. You can

Pecan Pie, Danny, Big Bucks & Roads of East Texas

By Bob Bianconi

Once again Tourmeister Ted Glover and wife Bonnie have

served the region well. Ted and Bonnie hosted a two-day

tour through the back roads of East Texas with a short

excursion into Louisiana. The tour started bright and early

Saturday morning, May 18th. This is our third tour with

Maverick and we were looking forward to seeing parts of Texas

we would most likely never have found on our own. We were not

to be disappointed.

promptly at 8 AM and we were treated to lush green fields, tall

trees and hardly a car in sight except for the line of Porsches

stretching out in front. How does Ted find these roads, we kept

asking ourselves. All too quick it was lunch time and we were

pulling into Nacogdoches and the Clear Springs Restaurant. At

lunch, it some how slipped that Jo-Ann and I have been in Texas

almost 3 years and I haven’t yet had chicken-fried steak or Pecan

Pie. This nasty slip would later come back to haunt me.

Photo by Bob Bianconi

The hills were nice.

. . . would later come back to

haunt me . . .

Following a group photo at the train station, we were back in

our cars heading towards Louisiana. Jo-Ann wanted to know if

we were heading towards a Shreveport casino to which we all kept

telling her no! So from that point on, every stop had to include a

gas station with a Lotto machine for her chance at the big bucks.

Into Louisiana we went, stopping for gas way out in the

boonies. While we were stopped, Brian in the yellow Boxster

whips out the windex and proceeds to wipe down his car (well,

ok, just the front). I guess he wants to keep it REALLY clean;

hmmmm, maybe a future concours chairman?

Photo by Bob Bianconi

Twelve cars showed up for the tour. Leading the pack was Ted

in his turbo carrera followed by a pair of 944’s driven by Doug

Macall and Jay Easley. There was a 928 piloted by Jim Mayzurk.

The 928, I believe, was voted the best sounding car on the tour –

nothing like the low growl of a V-8. There were three 911’s

(excluding Ted’s): Arnold and Jessie Stout, Andy Miller, and Chris

Smith and her son Craig. Andy was driving a brand new C4 Cab;

not to be out done, Leon Frenkel was also driving his new car – a

spanking new 911 turbo. Rounding out the pack were three of the

best Porsches (ok, I’m severely biased, so shoot me); a silver “S”

driven by Jim and Margie Chadwick, a pastel yellow Boxster

driven by Brian “I have the cleanest car” Guitard and wife Terrie;

and my own Boxster. Caboose on the Porsche train was

Webmaster, Mike Oakes, in his BMW M3 roadster.

Spectacular roads and scenery were complimented by

spectacular weather. It was 72 degrees and sunny. We headed east

What a motley crew.

Photo by Jay Easley

In front of the train station.

As we were taking our break, a young Louisianan stopped by

in his pickup truck and was admiring our cars. He said that he

had a bunch of Porsches at home. We all thought, yeah right;

remember this was way, way out in the middle of nowhere. Well

no sooner did the young fellow, Danny, leave, when he returns

driving an arctic silver 996. Needless to say, we all had a good

laugh. Never know where you’re gonna find them thar porches.

Next up was Natchitoches, La. a quaint little town along the

Cane River. Talk about picturesque. If you haven’t been there, put

it on your “to do” list. Lots of shops and restaurants and a nice

riverfront. And as they say, getting there is half the fun…

By late afternoon the crowd was getting hungry so it was

off to the Mariner’s restaurant just outside Natchitoches

(pronounced nak-a-tish). It was right on the water and seemed

like the perfect end to a great day of driving with new friends. We

10


were all full after our meal (at least I was) when a mysterious

piece of pecan pie showed up in front of me. Well, I have to say

that, yes indeed, it was good. Thanks to all at the ‘other table’ who

made sure I tried something new. I was worried the rest of the

weekend that a chicken fried steak might show up; but luckily

we’ll put that one off until the fall tour… It was an hour’s drive

back to the Texas side and Nacogdoches and we were all pretty

much beat from the day’s drive.

Sunday we were back on the road for more scenic roads,

twisties and rolling hills. We drove though parts of Davey

Crockett National Forrest and then finished out the tour with

lunch in Palestine. From there it was back through Athens and

home. All in all, it was a great weekend. Thanks, Ted and Bonnie.

IN MEMORY OF

Hollis “Whit” Whittenberg

July 7, 1918 - June 1, 2002

God saw you getting tired

And a cure was not to be.

So he put his arms around you

And whispered, “come to me.”

With tearful eyes we watched you,

And saw you pass away.

And though we loved you dearly,

We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working

hands were put to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.

Our prayers go out to the

Ussery family for strength and

comfort as they mourn the loss

of Fran’s father.

The Awesome Club Race

By Wendy Shoffit

What do you get when you mix 60 Club Racers, 60 Drivers’

Education participants, 15 concours cars, over 60 volunteers, and

great sponsors? Just about the best club race EVER!

Maverick Region was the host of the Memorial Weekend 2002

Club Race and DE at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS). Hill Country

Region’s David Gross says about the facility, “I'd never been to TMS

and at first sight I was overwhelmed! Hey, I'm used to TWS or MSR

- this place was like Enron Field er... I mean Astros Field... crossed

with the Talladega Speedway. Everything was so new and shiny!

The bleachers for 250,000 of your closest friends; the Speedway

Club restaurant with valet parking and a view of the track; the

condos and luxury skyboxes; the heliport that will accommodate 50

or so helicopters! The magnitude and the opulence of the place

were amazing!”

The new start location was great for the drivers . . . but required a little balance.

The gates opened at TMS late Friday afternoon, allowing for

early registration, a chalk talk session, and the orientation meeting.

Registration and tech seemed to go smoothly and most people

seemed to appreciate a good beginning. The drivers who attended

the chalk talk were treated to an in-car video presentation of the

track and were happy they were there. All 5 (yes, there were only 5)

rookie drivers who were supposed to be there participated in the

orientation meeting, so no one needed a hand slapping.

The driving festivities got underway a little late on Saturday

morning, May 24th. The racers were divided into two groups, the

“Smiley Faces” and the “Stars” while the DE’ers were the “Frogs”

and the “Chili Peppers.” Who else but the Mavericks would think of

such names?The 25 minute sessions were shortened a small amount

on Saturday to make up for the lost time in the morning. There

were bound to be a few small “hiccups,” most of which were invisible

to everyone else. We were relieved!

Even the chicane, which was a sore spot from last year’s race,

was improved. As John Crosby writes, “The infamous chicane from

last year was replaced with three bundles of tires which resembled

a big slalom. It was still one car at a time, but the last tire stack was

offset about 25’, thereby opening up the exit. Pylons were stacked in

front and on the sides to make the chicane more visible. It was

aligned so that cars had an escape route on either side if they

came in too hot. It allowed entry speeds of about 60 mph with a

gradually accelerating exit. There was only one minor incident

caused by the chicane when the tire bundle was side swiped.

The concours cars at attention and available for inspection!

Missing the chicane was an automatic black flag and a stop and go

penalty. The drivers tested the limits of the chicane during the first

couple of practice sessions and there were numerous black flags.

During the races however there were only one or two stop and go

penalties. Race starts were done on the infield straight, thus alleviating

the congestion into the chicane on the race starts. The flagging

crews were very accommodating and this worked very well.”

The weather on Saturday and Sunday couldn’t have been better.

The DE sessions went very smoothly as well as the Club Race

practices, qualifying sessions, and races (fun and sprint). There

were a few minor driving incidents all weekend, including one

regarding the chicane, but none were very serious. (Of course, that

is from an event organizer’s standpoint…I’m sure the drivers

weren’t very happy about it!)

On Sunday, not only was there racing to watch, but concours

chairman Jimmy Carter held a casual concours event out at the

track. There were 15+ cars on display. After the sprint race was

Amazing . . .

finished, 6-8 race cars even joined the show and shine event. A

group of young boys from one of our sponsors, Enviroshine,

worked diligently to make those race cars shine (for that event and

all weekend)! It was quite a site to see. Maverick Member, Karen

Erz, created beautiful plaques for the concours winners.

Sunday evening’s dinner at the track was absolutely delicious,

despite warmer than usual temperatures in the infield café. We had

been battling the broken air conditioner all weekend and it was

unfortunate the track staff couldn’t get it working for the awards

dinner. In spite of the heat, everyone seemed to have a very good

time. In addition to announcing the class winners, several special

awards were presented that night:

Best Prepared Car – David Gross

Best Rookie – Scott Orr

Best Novice- Wally Ruiz

Best Braking – Glen Gatlin

Northstar Motorsports Award – Wally Ruiz

Worker Choice –

Richard Wilkenfeld (Smiley Faces)

Glen Gatlin (Stars)

The only bad weather we had was on Monday when rain

loomed in the distance and finally fell at lunchtime and continued

into the afternoon, during the scheduled enduro race. About the

race, John Crosby wrote, “The enduro groups were already quite

small and with a number of drivers indicating that they were not

planning to race in the rain, the enduro groups were combined. This

was discussed at the driver’s meeting and there were no objections.

Even though these groups had no practice time together and were

racing in the rain on one of the fastest tracks in the country, there

was not even a single close call. Amazing.”

Corner (#7) worker, Darron Shaffer mentioned in an email

that not only were the Club Racers clean, but also during the DE

run session in the rain there were *NO* flags thrown the entire time

(except for a few passing flags). Everyone seemed to be behaving

themselves nicely.

Monday finished with a short awards presentation and happy

hour. The grins from the racers and DE drivers went from ear to

ear. Apparently racing in the rain is extremely exciting! Just ask

someone watching the race about the “puddle pass” by Jim Buckley.

Better yet, ask Jim about it! I’m sure he’d love to tell you.

Worker Choice Enduro Awards:

Crosby summed the weekend up: “Another terrific event hosted

by Maverick Region. The track operations, corner workers, and

the region volunteers were all outstanding. The hospitality presented

by the region was second to none. Every detail was attended

to in advance from the 996 turbo pace car to the pit stop timing

crew. There is nothing negative to report and there is very little that

could be improved upon.

Noteworthy performances were presented by Event Chair Glen

Gatlin, Registrar Wendy Shoffit, Hospitality and Sponsorship Chair

Lanean Hughes, Corner Worker Coordinator Joe McGlohen, and

Steward’s Assistant Tom Snodgrass. There were obviously many

others that also contributed.”

Thanks also go to John Crosby (national club race chairman &

Here are some other comments regarding the weekend:

The club racers were amazing with a GT-3 running around 170

MPH and blowing through the chicane at around 70 MPH! It was

a beautiful site. Porsches everywhere, it was easy to get bitten, I

hope to club race in the future. You just can't go out and not want

to participate. All the volunteers did a superb job, no complaints

about anything. – Doug Molny (DE #179)

It was one the best of the year for me... you guys are great! -

John Crosby

Congrats to all of you for a great event -- the support and the

hospitality are unmatched anywhere. - Donna Amico, Chief Race

Scrutineer

I had a great time at Maverick's club race. It was an experience

I waited ALL my whole life for and will never forget. The people

were really wonderful and helpful. - Frank Hinds (Club Racer #264)

The Maverick folks were out in great numbers and were so well

organized that the event went without disruption and I honestly

don't know how a volunteer organization can do so much with so

many so well but it made for a wonderful experience in which I am

delighted to have been included. I am looking forward to the next

one. - Scott Orr (Club Racer #61)

Kevin Procaccino catching some air in the infield.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note and say thanks for

everything this weekend. You guys did a great job. From the grid

workers to the corner workers to the hospitality and award ceremony,

it was first rate! I was proud to be a sponsor but even more

proud to be a racer from the Maverick Region! - Kevin Procaccino

(Club Racer #419)

MANY THANKS! It was another outstanding event! Even

running in the rain on my very used & abused Kumhos was fun.

(I was surprised how well they actually stuck) You guys did a great

job! - Jay Walker (DE #525)

I also would like to reiterate the many thanks to all the sponsors,

organizers, volunteers and corner workers. TMS is a great

facility and I had a blast. The corner workers did an awesome job

out there in that heat & humidity (few corner stations were without

shade). - Noby Takahashi (DE #257)

May Tech Session at Park Place

By Doug Molny

The service and parts department at Park Place Porsche

made this event very special. We arrived around 8:30

AM Saturday May 11th to donuts, orange juice, and

coffee. Once the parts department opened they handed out

GT-2 T-Shirts, Porsche hats and key chains, This was an unexpected

treat.

About 7 Maverick members show up and we immediately

proceeded to install 2 Corbeau racing seats in my 1979 911SC.

We determined that new holes had to be drilled into the seat

mounts to accommodate larger bolts to hold down the seat

brackets. This worked just fine thanks to Jimmy Hayes’ suggestions.

Upon completion I placed my helmet on my head and

sat down only to find my head sticking out of the sunroof! It

was obvious that the seat pads were too thick and had to be cut

down. We decided to wait to do that on the following Monday.

We then moved on to installing the Pagid Orange brake

pads which only took a few minutes. There were several of us

who have never done this before and wanted to learn how. We

were amazed how easy it is.

minutes. My front and rear end are displayed in the pictures

shown in this article. We learned that in just 6-months

my alignment had changed significantly enough that these

adjustments will be crucial to the cars ability to handle and

corner correctly.

. . . only to find my head sticking out

of the sunroof . .

The race seats waiting to be installed.

Also available were corner weight scales which are placed

under each wheel to check the load each wheel carries. The

result is the ability to adjust the weight each wheel carries to

the ground which effects the car diagonally as one wheel may

be lighter and would effect the corner entry, exit and braking.

This adjustment is available to everyone and I would suggest

this at least twice a year. Thanks again to Park Place Porsche

for hosting this tech session we look forward to the next one.

We then moved into another building for the Hunter

Alignment Machine which is had digital cameras and targets

for precise alignment. This is a computerized piece of equipment

that measures the cross camber, caster and toe-in for the

front and rear suspension, it produces measurements in a

digital format down to minutes which 1 degree would equal 60

Autocross # 2 - Mineral Wells

By Noby Takahashi

Photo by Kevin Hardison

Quite a few Mavericks (and non-Mavs) wandered out to

Mineral Wells again for the second Time Trial/Autocross

weekend of the season. There was a very large turnout on

Saturday for the Time Trial on Course #2. Because SCCA had their

Regional AX at TMS on Sunday, we only had 2 non-Porsches for a

well-designed course by Kevin Hardison.

Anastasia Zaruba getting into the swing of it.

Saturday morning started off with a slight mist/drizzle. At

least it wasn’t a hailstorm like we encountered at the last event! I

had a chance to check out some of the ‘changes’ to Corner 2 while

taking out a Honda S2000 driver to show him the course. Few small

potholes and loads of gravel required some adjustments to the line.

A few of us stayed around to help Cody and Kevin set up the

autocross course. At first, we were a bit mystified in the back of the

truck with the course; we all thought that Kevin had finally lost it!

After driving the course a few times on Saturday night, I knew that

it was going to be a blast on Sunday! But even before we got started

on Sunday morning, there were a few problems. A huge storm

rolled through on Saturday night, knocking over the Porta-Potties

(Fran the Windex Lady, thank you for cleaning them), the timing

trailer off its jacks, and most of the cones on the course. Yikes! Just

minor obstacles, we managed to start the event with minimal delay.

...thought that Kevin had finally lost it...

I think everyone enjoyed Kevin’s course, there was lots of

positive feedback. I even beat the Cockroach (granted it wasn’t Ed’s

times). That guy in the black SC (with cheater tires?) sent me off to

the cleaners on this day. Wendy had some awesome times over the

weekend and her screams of joy could be heard over in Cool.

If you’re gonna hit a cone, do it RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE!

(Wendy Shoffit)

Check out the wing on Carl Amond’s 914!

Not sure what happened, but I managed to drop over 6

seconds from last year and almost beat ‘Too Damn Fast’ Chuck

Machala. Chuck showed up with his brand new Kumho Victoracers

and I tried to give him some ‘friendly’ advice on tire pressure

(“Chuck, I think you want to start them at 38F/40R cold!”). For

some reason, he didn’t heed my words of wisdom. At least I didn’t

let some guy in a black SC beat me!

Thank you James, Wendy, Cody, Kevin, Mr. Nancy Dugan, Ed

and all the others that helped make this another awesome weekend

out in Mineral Wells.

With everything else that is going on, the next event won’t be

until end of June. Be warned, I’m scheduled to design the autocross

course. I’ll be trying to come up with some remote-controlled

cones to fly out in front of ‘Too Damn Fast’ Chuck (or I’ll pay off

the corner workers to pull the fishing line taped to the cones….).

Dining a la Cars

by Christy Sears

Prior to May 16th, my experience of Mayo Performance had

been to pull up outside to drop off or pick up Cody when our

914 has been in for repairs or improvements. After a recent

repair stint lasting several weeks, I figured it was about time I

checked out our 914’s home away from home. The annual May at

Mayo’s dinner seemed the perfect opportunity.

you can get involved. As we digested (BBQ and Parade info), we

headed outdoors to get a last look at all the assembled cars. Pretty

soon, the rumble of Richard Fisher’s Chevy V8 engine (in a 914 no

less!) drew a crowd in the driveway. But before long, the mosquitoes

and Cody’s weariness from a day of driving won out, and we

called it a night.

Many thanks to the following for a great evening: Ed Mayo

for all his hard work in getting the shop ready for visitors, Ussery

Printing for co-sponsoring the event (supplying all the table decorations

and sidewalk chalk for the kids), and Eric Erz for putting

it all together. If you haven’t had the experience of fine dining in

an auto shop, make sure to mark your calendar for next year. See

you in May, at Mayo’s.

The Mavericks filled up the shop while enjoying the great barbeque.

The Saturday of May at Mayo’s coincided with the Hill

Country Region Drivers’ Education event at Motorsport Ranch.

Although many Maverick Region members spent the day negotiating

Rattlesnake and the off-camber turn at Ricochet (See honey,

I do listen when you dissect the course!), we had a great turnout

for dinner. As guests arrived, the lot in front of Mayo’s was filled

with beautiful Porsches – the spectrum ranged from the Shoffits’

Teri Davis and Jan Mayo worked the crowd

looking for volunteers to help at the 2004 Parade.

Cody and I were a little late arriving, but in plenty of time to

get two helpings of BBQ from Main Street BBQ and our choice

from the array of ice cold beverages. After dinner, Teri Davis presented

a slide show explaining the effort and fun that will be

involved in hosting Parade in 2004 – watch Slipstream to see how

Mini Tech Tip - Batteries

by John Halla

To fill cells in your Porsche's battery, try using a turkey baster.

The model appropriated from my kitchen has a plastic tube about 10

inches long, and a rubber squeeze bulb. The tube's diameter allows

plunging it into the neck of a gallon jug of distilled water.

Just plunge and squeeze. When you release, there is a enough water

to replenish one cell in a 12 volt battery. If you need two squeezes, your

battery was really low.

Batteries need to be filled before the summer season. Electrolyte

(the liquid in batteries) should cover the tops of the plates in each cell.

EXOTIC CAR & BIKE SHOW

. . . If you need two squeezes. . .

I like to keep mine just below the bottom of the filler tube that

the caps screw into. Using the baster and a flash light, one can add

precisely the amount of distilled water that each cell needs, without the

messy overflow that may occur with other types of battery fillers that

have check valves in their stems.

This is especially helpful for some early 911's were access to the

battery is only obtained after the spare has been pulled out of the trunk.

Once you have used a kitchen device for battery work, it becomes

a garage only tool. This is because you probably pick up some sulfuric

acid on the tip of the baster.
