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’

911 (fresh from a day o’ spinning at MSR) to Rich Johnson’s pristine

yellow 914.

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
