Prez Says

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

First of all, I would like to thank the many

people who volunteered to help get the

Slipstreams out to the dealerships. As soon as we

get the fancy information boards from PCA

National, we can start putting our own inserts and

applications and brochures there as well. We

ordered them some time ago, but there must have

been some confusion, as we still don’t seem to have

them. But thanks to all of those willing to help us spread the word!

Our Autocross season started with a bang on February 16th and

17th. Cody Sears and Kevin Hardison did a MAGNIFICENT job of

putting together a first-class autocross school. The attendees seemed

to enjoy it, and so did the instructors and organizers. The Autocross

101 school (Intro to Autocross) was on Saturday, and Sunday was the

Ladies-Only Autocross School. We had record turnout for both, and

everyone seemed to be pleased with the largest change we made from

prior years – more lap time! It was amazing to see how good this

year’s batch of students were. Everyone seemed to really get the hang

of it quickly! Pennington field seems to be a good local venue for our

autocrosses – look for more events there this year.

Coming up REAL soon (March 16-17) is the next Autocross

School, the traditional Mineral Wells 2-day Autocross School.

This is a logical next step for anyone who did AX101 or Ladies

AX, but the prior courses are NOT a prerequisite. Please feel free

to attend the March event, as there will be even more track time,

and larger courses. Mineral Wells may be a longer drive than

Pennington, but it is one of the few places you can get that kind

of space for a driving event.

We have a budding Concours program that should be taking

shape very soon. And in that vein, in late April, we have an opportunity

to visit a Boy Scouts of America Pinewood Derby. They

have invited us to bring some cars, and even make our own

Pinewood Derby cars and race them ourselves! If you aren’t familiar

with it, a Pinewood Derby is a race among cars, built by the

Scouts themselves, which are carved out of wood provided in a kit.

They cannot exceed certain limitations in height, width, length, or

weight, and must ride on stock wheels – no springs or bearings

involved. The cars are about 7 inches long and weigh 5 ounces and

are driven solely by gravity down a sloping track. No curves to

watch out for! And having some of us there with our car-toys

should double the fun for everyone. They can vote on which

Porsches the like the best (in several categories) and we might even

persuade a lucky owner to take a lucky scout on a short drive

around the parking lot. Sounds like a lot of fun to me!

The Tour season will also be getting underway soon, with an

April trip to see the wildflowers. And you don’t want to miss any of

our Happy Hours or Lunches, either. We have something for just

about everyone – so come on out, and join the fun!

Because I Said So

by Wendy Shoffit, Editor

Iwould like to echo James‚ thanks to the volunteers

who stepped forward last month! I

sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm and

your willingness to help the club. I hope that

many more will follow. If you don’t know how

or where you can help, see the “Letter to the

Editor” article on page 17. Let’s keep this ball

rolling!

I am also so pleased with the amount of articles people are

volunteering to write. Several of these were even unsolicited, my

favorite kind! What this means is that I don’t have to hunt someone

down and beg him or her to cover an event that they are

attending. Further, the ever-increasing use of digital cameras is

helping, too. We are able to save a bit of time each month not

needing to scan in photos. Don’t get me wrong though, picture

prints still have some of the best quality available, particularly for

cover shots.

Basically, I appreciate it all. Willing authors, photographers,

and volunteers thrill me! Yeah, I guess you could say I’m easy to

please. You there...in the back...stop that snickering. *big smile*

Now that I’m handing out the thank you’s, let me say a huge

one to Park Place Porsche, who has agreed to sponsor not only

our Drivers’ Education (DE) at MotorSport Ranch (MSR) in

June, but also Hill Country’s DE at MSR in May. Thanks for your

continued support, not only for your sponsorship, but also for

the monhly tech sessions that our members really love!

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Maverick Region Secretary

James Shoffit opened the February meeting

at 7:00 PM in Irving Texas at the Shoffit’s

home. First item on the agenda is that the

club is looking for nominations for family of

the year as well as enthusiast of the year to compete

for a national award at 2002 Porsche

Parade this summer. So, if you have a family or

person in mind, please mention it to any one of

the board members.

James also updated everyone on the status of the web site for

managing the autocross schools. This was a great idea for communicating

to all the students, instructors and volunteers. Future

events will use this medium so that everyone can be kept updated

as things happen.

A suggestion was made to start contacting members that

don’t renew and query them as to why they did not renew. Dee

Lersch volunteered to help the membership committee to start

gathering information.

Motion was passed to move forward on making necessary

reservation for 2002 Founders Day Banquet. As details are finalized

updates will be published in both Slipstream and on the web

site.

We have gotten this year started with a bang. With so many

different kinds of events coming up, I can’t imagine that anyone

will feel left out. Keep checking the Maverick Region website

(www.pca.org/mav), it’s always changing!

The last thing I have for you all this month, is a recipe passed

on to me by Melissa Gatlin. I haven’t tried it yet, but she tells me

it’s a huge hit wherever she bring it. Enjoy!

Noodle Salad

1/4 cup butter

1 bunch green onions

1/2 cup veggie oil

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup white vinegar

2 T soy sauce

2 pkg RAMEN

noodles

1 jar sesame seeds

1 pkg sliced almonds

1 head Chinese

cabbage

1. Crush RAMEN noodles into small pieces (dispose of the

seasoning packet).

2. Sauté butter, noodles, almonds and sesame seeds until brown

(SLIGHTLY brown). Bring to room temperature.

3. Mix veggie oil, white vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar in a medium

sauce pan, bring just to a boil and remove from heat. let cool.

4. Cut up Chinese cabbage and green onion.

5. When all cooked ingredients are at room temperature, mix

together and enjoy. (Make sure that you mix just before serving

so that noodle mixture does not get soggy)

Teri Davis reported that the Rally School did well and plans

are in the works for additional schools and more rallies in 2002.

If you missed the rally school and want to participate in the next

one contact Teri Davis. Also, Teri updated everyone on the planning

for Round-Up 2002. If you would like to help or have suggestions

for locations please contact Teri.

Jan Mayo reported on the status of the second annual “One

Lap of DFW” and indicated that the scope will be a bit different

this year. Anyone interested in helping with the planning please

contact Jan.

Meeting was brought to a close at 8:45. The next board meeting

will be Wednesday March 6 at 7:00 PM. All members and

guest are welcome. Remember to always check the web site for

the most current information about the happenings in your

Porsche Club.

Maverick Region PCA Board

Meetings are held once a month.

The meetings are open to all PCA members and

your suggestions and opinions are welcome.

And there’s free food!

From the Tourmeister

by Ted Glover

Porsche touring season is rapidly approaching, so all the club

members who would like to enjoy some of the great Texas

roads need to look at the tour dates and mark your calendars.

Since many of the club members are not native Texans and are new

to this state, they might not realize how inviting some of the rods

are. Texas is not just a flat desert, though many non-Texans think

this. In east Texas we have the piney woods and lakes with great

roads between and around them. In the hill counry we have the hills

with great roads between, around, and over them. As testament to

this, the Texas 1000, the premier driving event in Texas, spends an

entire week driving the roads of the hill country.

April 5-7 - This will be the first tour of the season and the

longest in Texas. The drive will be through the hill country with

bluebonnets in full bloom. the club will be staying in Comfort at the

Haven River Inn. See all the pertinent information in the ad to the

right.

April 20 - This will be a one-day tour to see the piney woods

and wild flowers of east Texas. There are a lot of great roads in east

Texas ad this tour will prepare everyone for what is to come during

the rest of the year.

May 18-19 - This will be a two-day tour deeper into the piney

woods of east Texas with an excursion into Louisiana to enoy some

of the scenic roads in the Kissatchee National Forest. We will stay

overnight in east Texas at a site still to be determined.

October 25-27 - This will be a three-day tour to Arkansas. No

details at this time. Different routes are being considered.

November 23 - This will be a one-day tour to enjoy the

Winnsboro Fall Foliage Tours set up by the Winnsboro chamber of

Commerce. They do all the maps and we do all the driving.

All these tour dates were selected after the dates were finalized

for the other events for 2002, so I tried to pick the free weekends so

there would be no conflicts with any of the other events. Porsche has

a new slogan out which states, “Any Curve, Anytime, Anywhere!”

Well, come on these tours and you will see where they are!

Please call me any time if you have any suggestions or questions.

Ted Glover (972) 248-7751.

Charity Corner

by Lanean Hughes

The first day of Spring is March 20th and you know what that

means! It’s time to start your spring cleaning. So, when you

decide to clean out your closets, think of the Hope Shelter

for unwanted clothing. When you clean out your kitchen, get rid of

those extra dishes, pots and pans, or whatever else it is you’ve been

wanting to toss. When you clean out your kids’ rooms, think of the

children at the Pythian Home who have little to play with.

Our charities can use most of what is donated. What they can’t

use, they pass on to other charities who can. Nothing is wasted.

Thank you for your generosity! It is appreciated.

Rally School

By Chris Hart

The great thing about the Maverick Region is there are always a

wide range of events available for the members. Rally 101 was

an event that gave club members a chance to learn the basics of

the sport of road rally. The workshop was conducted and presented by

the club’s own Teri Davis and Juanita Miller. In their own relaxed way,

with the emphasis on having fun we covered Types Of Rallies, Rules &

Terms, Time Speed Distance, Finding The Route, and Rally Exercises.

The agenda provided for breakfast, class instruction, breaks,

lunch, two opportunities to practice what you learned in the field and

behind the wheel before the end of the day rally. Those of us who were

beginners and came alone were paired up with a partner and had just

as much fun as the advanced drivers. The end of the day event was the

Lake Worth Shoreline Rally.

. . . in their own way, with the

emphasis on having fun . . .

In my book it doesn’t get any better than learning how to become

a better driver on a pretty day surrounded by the beauty that can be

found in Texas behind the wheel of a Porsche. Thank you Teri, Juanita,

a very patient partner Mark Gluck and the club for a great event.

With the wide range of driving opportunities and the great members

that are so willing to give of their time, it is no wonder the

Maverick Region is such a successful club.

Rally 101 - First Success for 2002

By Juanita Miller

Photo by Charlie Davis

Now that the months of planning, countless emails and telephone

calls are behind us, I firmly believe that Rally 101 goes

into the success column for 2002. To pull off this school on

basic principals of the rally game, I teamed up with Teri Davis of the

Porsche Club (PCA). We met once to plan the basic flow of the school

and one other time to determine the field exercises at Tarrant County

College, NW Campus. To lay out the route, I asked Carrye Lethgo to be

our guinea pig and ride along as navigator. We found several things to

emphasize and thoroughly explain to the class by answering her questions.

Carrye had fun learning some basic rally concepts with two

tutors in the car. My real problem was that I had Carrye in the front

seat and Teri in back and kept getting their names confused.

Otherwise, since Teri lives in Weatherford and I live in Sachse, thank

our lucky stars for email and telephone. We wrote the textbook and

sample route instructions by remote means. Thanks also go to Ed Tix

(PCA, DSCC) for final checkout of the routes. This cooperation shows

how people working together can get things accomplished.

The day started early with our trusty volunteers, John & Phyllis

Camp (SCCA, PCA and DSCC), showing up early to set out signs and

layout equipment for the first field exercise which was an odometer

calibration. Special thanks go to Nancy Dugan (PCA) for helping out

with registration while Teri and I were getting awake and organized.

Teri arranged for a nice size classroom at TCC which overlooks a picturesque

lake. It was quite comfortable for the 37 students and 10 volunteers

counting myself and Teri.

2nd Place Winners - Taxi and Don Breithaupt

Our course material did not flow as smoothly as we had planned.

I think the fact that Teri got 2 hours sleep the night before and I got 4

had a bit to do with our disorganized delivery. We went through basic

route following ideas, TSD theory and some do’s & don’ts regarding

general instructions for a given event. Lowell Allen (DSCC), long time

rally worker, brought along his video recorder and taped the classroom

session. The first field exercise was the Odometer Calibration and extra

thanks for Charlie Davis for reassuring the campus police that our students

would only be going the wrong way once in the parking lot, in

front of the “Criminal Justice Training Center”. We missed this detail a

couple of weeks prior when we reviewed that drill. Then it was time for

lunch so we broke out the box lunches. The plan was to show some

fancy rally equipment, which I brought along in a tote, but everyone

was having a nice visit, so we skipped that part of the show.

After lunch the class moved on to Timing Loop Drill. The class

was divided in halves, with one working the first round and second

running. The workers were assigned to one of two check points. Our

experienced workers started off performing all the functions and

speaking about each to the group. Then some of the students got to be

checkpoint workers, running the clock, whistle at the timing line, writing

in the log, making out timing slips and delivering them to the competing

cars. This proved to be very informative to most since they don’t

get to see the action from the other side too often. Then we switched

groups and repeated the process. This took a bit longer that we planned

so we hurried through an explanation of results.

. . . hopefully we’ll see respectable

fields at some road rally events . . .

Finally, the students were ready for the big event, the “Lake Shore

TSD Rally”. This was about 25 miles of beautiful winding road along

Lake Worth. Teri established 4 checkpoints which our trusty volunteers,

those previously mentioned plus David & Peg Dennis (SCCA),

Bob Benson (PCA, DSCC), Ken Johnstone (SCCA, DSCC, Z Car plus

our crew chief for performance rallying) staffed the checkpoints. The

first was a reassurance checkpoint at the end of the odometer run to

allow students to ask questions. Two others were arranged so that one

crew could get to both of them. I got to help staff the last one and the

theory was that I would beat the students back to campus. Well, that

was a nice plan but thanks go to Lowell for taking the lead on helping

students figure out their times before Teri or I got back to campus.

Awards were hats which said “rally” for 1st & 2nd place which went to

Bill & Nancy Dugan (1st) and Don & Taxi Breithaupt (2nd).

I fielded several questions about upcoming events and found the

group very enthusiastic. So hopefully we will see some respectable

fields at some road rally events this year. Teri and I plan more cooperative

efforts by PCA & SCCA to keep this momentum going.

As always, a woman’s work is never done! This poor guy is worn out.

Happy Hour At Carraba’s

By Jay Easley

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain,

Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck

This month’s happy hour at

Nuevo Leon marked a “changing

of the guard”, so to speak as

Tinker Edwards handed the reins of

Mentor-hood to Dennis Chamberlain

and his assistant, Rueben, er… Romeo,

I mean, Mark Gluck. While I look forward

to Dennis’ stewardship, I’ll also

miss the role that Tinker has played.

We all owe her a debt of gratitude for coming up with the idea of

Maverick Region Happy Hours and nurturing them along to the

highly successful events they have become (53 attendees for Nuevo

Leon). I know that I would still be a “lurker” if it weren’t for her insisting

that we come out. Thank you, Tink. For all you do, this margarita’s

for you.

...ifI start wearing grown up clothes

and quit bringing crayons . . .

That said, January’s happy hour at Nuevo Leon was more tame

than the last few because no strangers insulted my 944 (Mondo’s) nor

was I evicted (Speedzone). In fact, I was quite content to lurk in the

corner for most of the time. This was one of the largest turnouts we’ve

had in Dallas with many new faces. After attending two straight years

of happy hours, I am still surprised at the number of new people who

keep appearing from the woodwork. If you’re still not sure about this

whole “PCA thing”, please come out to a happy hour and learn what

it is all about. Oh, and Romeo wanted me to be sure to mention that

this goes doubly for you if you’re single and female (just kidding, I

think). This was our fourth time at Nuevo Leon and like always, they

rolled out the red carpet for us. They greeted us with prime parking

spots in a very crowded lot and our own section of the restaurant in

which to congregate. The food is top-notch Mexican, very tasty without

all the onions and other “filler” that you find at most restaurants,

and the presentation is very nice for a place that is so reasonably

priced. I especially recommend the enchiladas. Of course, I am still

not allowed to eat with the adults but Dennis has promised that if I

start wearing grown up clothes and quit bringing crayons to happy

hour, I can eat at the “…Big People’s table…someday”, whatever that

means. That’s okay, there’s more room at a table for four anyway.

The February 21 happy hour is at Champps in Addison. When

we convened there last June, Dennis brought his Cher impersonator,

who got up and did the Karaoke thing. If you like people watching,

you’ll be entertained at Champps. See you there.

New Member Party - “Rub-a-Dub Tub”

By Mark Gluck

In spite of the cloudy day and impending Superbowl, the

New Member Party was very well attended! Kids, dogs,

adults and those pretending to be all had a great time with

some incredibly hot chili and more desserts than Wendy could

guard all at once.

New members had the opportunity to meet with Mavericks

and talk about everything from autocrossing and tires to second

opinions on proposed major engine work. There was interesting

conversation going on throughout the house and spilling

onto the back and front lawns. Some of the finest machinery on

the planet was represented, including the 356 "Tub Club" with

their wonderful classics.

Bob and Chris Morris’ house is always a very friendly place,

the perfect atmosphere for new members to mix and feel welcome.

Thanks, Bob and Chris and welcome new members!

Letter to the Editor

By Robert Van Buskirk

Dear Wendy:

This morning I had the pleasure of reading Slipstream and

was truly grateful for everyone’s effort to write, produce, and

deliver it to me. I also know much of that responsibility falls on

your shoulders. THANK YOU!

In reading your article I frankly felt bad. You and your family

are the ultimate Porsche family and we are grateful, but I know

it takes a toll. As you know I have recently volunteered to do some

things that I hope help our club. But your article caused me to

wonder how and why I have not gotten more involved. Herein are

some positive suggestions that might be meaningful to all of us.

1. We look at the amazing list of volunteers and think everything

is covered.

2. We don’t know what help would be meaningful.

3. Sometimes we take up a mission only to find out someone

is doing it already or has a very definite opinion about how

something should be done and that scares us away.

. . . we don’t know what help would

be meaningful. . .

Positive recommendation: This week I noticed how quickly

you got a response to your plea for help to distribute Slipstream.

There may be a lesson here.

1. Please help us understand how we can help you and others

by listing in Slipstream or our web page short-term needs

of the club. Our membership resources must be overwhelming

so let’s bring them to bear.

2. Allow us to sign up and “own” certain activities that we can

do each month and feel good about doing it.

3. Conversely, if a member has an issue let them take the

responsibility to “own” the problem, research the matter, and

make recommendations to our Board not just complain.

4. Example: During the past few days there was intense e-

mail concerning where Tech Inspections could be conducted.

However, no one stopped to consider the full

dimensions of the matter and how, for example, John

Sandusky will get to all of those places over multiple days

to insure our standards are upheld.

Wendy you and James are critical members of our club that we

all value! Please do not get frustrated! We just need to understand

where we can help and fit in. This could be the subject of your

monthly article in Slipstream and we would all be better for it.

You guys are the best and you are very much appreciated by all!

Dear Robert,

Thank you so very much for your well thought out response

and suggestions. You are absolutely right! We, as a board, will try to

do better about that in the future. As for right now, here are a few

jobs that need filling. These are not extremely difficult jobs to do,

most or all only require a few hours a month and I’m certain we

can ALL find a little time in our schedule to give something back.

1. Worker Coordinator (AX/TT) Assistant - I'm willing to continue

doing it, but would love to have someone to back me

up and hopefully take over sometime soon.

2. Advertising Chairman - someone who can send out ad rates,

contracts, invoices, etc. Graham Lane has done a marvelous

job the last 2 years and would like a break.

3. Slipstream Distribution - someone to print labels and do the

bulk mail paperwork once per month. It takes only a few

hours a month, and a smart person with numbers. Andy

Mears is working to streamline the process to make it easier

for the next person to do.

4. Equipment Coordinator - Someone to manage a list of

equipment belonging to the club, including where it is, serial

numbers, etc. Charlie Davis has agreed to be the interim

coordinator until someone else steps forward.

5. Assistant for Round Up - Someone to help Teri Davis put on

this fabulous event. She has done this job by herself for the

past several years and could use a little help.

That’s all I know of for the time being. If you think that you

would be suited for one of these positions, let me or any one of the

people mentioned in the job descriptions know. You will have help

getting started. We are great at on-the-job training! Thanks!

Start the New Year with new numbers!

Market Launch for 2003

By PCNA Press Release - Jan, 8, 2002

Porsche Executive Board reaches decision to build the

Carrera GT Stuttgart/Detroit. Following detailed studies the

executive board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. has now given the

"green light": The Carrera GT will be built. The Stuttgart sports

car manufacturer wants to produce 1,000 units of this high performance

sports car, the market launch of which is currently

planned for the second half of the year 2003. This announcement

was made today by the Chairman of the Board, Dr. Wendelin

Wiedeking, in a press conference held at the Detroit Motor Show.

Porsche first presented a study based on this high performance

sports car series at the Paris Automobile Salon on 28

September 2000. Public reaction to this completely new Porsche

was positive throughout the world. Wiedeking: "With the Carrera

GT we want to do more than just demonstrate our technical

competence in the sports car segment. This vehicle also mirrors

the strength, the dynamic and the self-confidence of the company

and the Porsche brand".

The construction of the Carrera GT is based on pure racing

car engineering. This applies to the chassis and the understructure

as well to the new V10 engine and the six gear gearbox. With

5.5 litres cubic capacity, a torque of 600 Newton meters and 558

H.P. the Carrera GT guarantees top speeds of over 330 kilometres

per hour.

Park Place Tech Session

By Robert Van Buskirk

Photo by Robert Van Buskirk

On January 19, Park Place Porsche hosted their first in a

series of monthly “Tech Sessions.” These sessions were

put together to satisfy the need of Maverick Region

membership to learn more about their Porsche’s in a “hands

on” setting.

Tracy Moore, Sales Manager and Dan Franklin, Service

Manager got our attention at the very beginning with the offer of

special pricing during the day for Service, Parts, and Porsches.

Rumor has it one of our very own had a demo and bought a

remarkable yellow 2002 996 with all of the options at special pricing.

With his proven racing ability we are in big trouble.

We were all surprised to hear Park Place Porsche ranks third

for Porsche sales in America!

Photo by Robert Van Buskirk

The audience was very attentive.

We learned among other things the computers in the newer

Porsche’s actually log “over rev” experiences! Their Shop

Foreman, Jimmy Hays was extremely helpful in describing all that

we saw and answering a seemingly endless series of performance

enhancing questions.

. . . learn more about their Porsches

in a “hands on” setting. . .

Insert your own joke here...it’s too easy!

Next we were offered breakfast, an explanation of the morning

events, and their desire to become more involved with our

Maverick Region. This includes having these events on a monthly

basis throughout the year, providing Tech inspections prior to

our events, and offering special pricing to the Maverick Region

Porsche Club membership. Additionally, they intend to get more

involved with racing and to have service vehicles at our racing

events during the year.

This first session covered brake systems to include the

upgrade of a Boxster, demonstration of the sophisticated computer

analysis tools Park Place uses, and endless questions our

membership asked about all models of Porsche’s and situations.

Photo by Robert Van Buskirk

On the Boxster we were shown a total change over to a competitive

brake system. We watched the complete removal and

installation, which included learning many little nuances that are

important in doing the job correct, the first time. Also, we learned

Just one of the fabulous mechanics strutting his stuff.

Photo by Robert Van Buskirk

A job well done.

how to do a one person brake flush which is important knowledge

for all of us.

Additionally, they had Boxsters and 996’s on hand we could

inspect and ask detailed questions about. At the end of the event

many members took advantage of the special parts pricing which

was better then the sale pricing Performance Products was offering

in their catalogue.

We appreciate everyone’s effort and look forward to the

February session, which will be on multiple 996’s.

Safety Sense: Safety in Passing

By Tom Comeau, San Diego Region

Our club seems to be moving steadily towards more events of

the DE (Driver Education) and TT (Time Trial) variety

where higher speeds and passing are involved. This is readying

many of the membership for the next level of competition, Club

Racing. We need a heightened sense of safety to go with this extra

speed and passing. I'd like to address what appears to be a blind spot

in the driving routine of some of us when we get cooking and

charged up on adrenalin –- passing and getting passed.

. . . park your ego and accept he’s a

better driver or has a faster car . . .

A good pass must start with watching your mirrors and this

must take place BEFORE you enter the straight or passing zone. If

someone is on your tail through the corners, prior to the straight,

you must assume that this person wants to pass you. Park your ego

and accept that he's a better driver (it's possible) or has a faster car

(it happens) or whatever you do to rationalize. The safest way to

allow a pass is to move as quickly as possible to the right and get off

the gas COMPLETELY.

Why is this a safety concern? Glad you asked. The safety aspect

is in the rapidly diminishing space the overtaker has if you just barely

(or don't) lift off the gas. It's very easy to neglect coming off the

gas COMPLETELY, to allow a clean pass when you're in "competition"

mode. It's some-thing that should be practiced by everyone so

that all passes are clean and safe. The alternative is two cars screaming

down the straight and one or the other or both getting in a bind,

overbraking and losing the line through the upcoming turn, which

can be hairy at the higher speeds. We've all seen this situation at

TT's. It's something that can and should be avoided.

Running with the "big guys" requires this heightened sense of

alertness to your mirrors and to the fact that you have other people

out there with you. What you do has a definite effect on others.

You may not be remembered or thanked for allowing clean passes,

but I can almost guarantee that you will be remembered (and not

fondly) if you don't.

The course at the start of a DE session can be a bit crowded!

Boxster Boulevard

By Bob Bianconi

So Boxster owners, what were you doing Feb 9th? If you were

one of the lucky Boxster owners, you were cruising happily

through the rolling country roads west of Ft. Worth. On

Saturday the 9th, Maverick, and soon-to-be Maverick members,

assembled at Zim’s swap meet in Bedford. Boxsters from Irving,

Southlake, Dallas, Duncanville, Colleyville, Keller, and Grapevine

joined to share a day of driving, camaraderie and all things Boxster.

The long distance award goes to PCA member Mike Rentner from

Austin who drove up that morning to join us for the tour. It was

also nice to see some Boxster owners show up as a result of the

recent Slipstream advertisement. In fact, several folks said that this

was their first PCA event.

What’s unique about this group is its make-up? Many of the

Boxster owners are frequent guests of Pete’s Boxster Board*; they

are the folks who chat and discuss their cars, day in and day out.

While some folks knew each other, most had never met in person

until this tour. All agreed that is was great to finally meet the person

behind the bulletin board name.

. . . the only time I used the word

“ranch” was in conjunction with

the word “dressing” . . .

The gang at Chalk Mountain.

Photo by Bob Bianconi

So there we were, a baker’s dozen; Boxsters of all colors and configurations

lined up along “Boxster Boulevard” - thanks Vaughan,

great name! The obligatory driver’s meeting was held and then we

were off for a 4-hour tour. The weather cooperated and temperatures

approached 60 degrees, so most of us caravanned top-down.

The most tedious part of the tour was getting to our starting

point; it took about an hour to drive through Weatherford, Mineral

Wells and then to Palo Pinto where we turned onto the roads that

had “Porsche” written all over them. We started off fairly high up

(for north Texas). The first road actually had a “Trucks use low

gear” sign as we descended through Palo Pinto. I think that’s the

first one of those I’ve seen in a while.

We used lots of little-used back roads through Lipan, Santo -

best chicken fried steak in Texas, I’m told - and Bluff Dale. Our

Caboose told us over the radio that it was quite a sight seeing all the

Boxsters cresting one hill and then the next. This was definitely

ranch country with lots of open space. (Note: I’m from Maryland,

Lunch in Granbury

prior to my move here to Texas. The only time I used the word

“ranch” was in conjunction with the word “dressing”). We found

lots of twisties intermixed with rolling hills and stretches of long

straight-aways. All-in-all, great roads for Porsches of any kind.

Near Glen Rose, we all stopped to stretch our legs at the Chalk

Mountain overlook and to take the opportunity for a group photo

shoot. From there it was off to Granbury where we all grabbed

lunch. Granbury was our last stop and everyone went their separate

ways; some stayed to shop, others wanted to stop by

Motorsport Ranch since it was nearby and the rest of us finished

out the backroad journey heading back to points east.

Yes, we Boxster owners love our cars too.

Swap Meet Again at Zim’s

By Wendy Shoffit

On February 9th, a large crowd descended upon the parking

lot at Zim’s Autotechnik for the first swap meet of 2002. The

event was originally supposed to be held at GTI, but

because of a problem with the owner of the building, it had to be

moved to another location. Fortunately for us, Zim’s was more than

happy to help us out. Not only did they give us a location, but they

also extended attendees a special 10% discount on parts.

Now, I haven’t been to a swap meet in a few years, but to the

best of my knowledge, this was the largest one in awhile! It was certainly

bigger than the last one I was at! I was amazed to see so many

tires, wheels, and bizarre parts offered up. I guess everyone at one

point or another needs something “oddball part” that they can’t

seem to find anywhere else.

Quite a few people I spoke to went home pretty happy.

Unfortunately for us, the wheels we brought with us came back

home with us again. Oh yeah, and I still have some of those Speed

Racer videos if anyone is interested. I know of one young boy who

was thrilled to find his favorite episode. All in all, it was a great day.

Thanks again to Zim’s for being so accomodating!
