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.

January is typically a slow month for
Maverick Region. We all need a chance to
recover from the holidays and regroup
before the full year of events gets into high gear.
We did have a couple of lunches, a Happy
Hour, a Tech Session at Park Place, and a Rally
School (so maybe it wasn’t that slow after all!).
Personally, Wendy and I had our annual ski
trip to Whistler. That is the #1 ski resort in North America (or so
they claim) and is about 2 hours north of Vancouver, BC. We were
so excited to go because the prior month had been uncharacteristicly
snowy for the area. They had received 6 feet of snow in just
a few weeks. But the weather didn’t hold out for us. They had a
warm front blow through which brought temperatures into the
40s and rain! We only ended up with one good day of skiing. Not
all was lost – we had good friends and Wendy’s brother and his
family to spend time with. We also got to try snowmobiling. What
a blast! We had a very good time overall, but I am still longing for
another ski trip this spring – and I doubt I will have the time to
satisfy that urge.
I have had a few volunteers come forward for helping with
the PCA information boards – many thanks to those who did. We
still need one for Autobahn in Fort Worth. If you think you could
visit the shop maybe once a month, feel free to let me know!
We had another volunteer come forward and offer to help
organize a tour (Feb. 9) to Granbury for Boxster owners. Robert
Bianconi is a longtime PCA member and relatively new Boxster
owner (you may remember him from his work on the One Lap of
DFW charity event last year). He is trying to bridge the gap
between Boxster owners that aren’t members of PCA and those
that are. This is a slightly different market that we are trying to
adjust to. The Boxster was much-heralded on the internet before
it was released, and the long waits for delivery caused the explosive
growth of internet fan sites and discussion boards. So they
developed a community of future Boxster owners before their
cars had even arrived!
Many of them are PCA members, but many are not. We want
to expand our services to meet their wants and needs, since we
feel that the more people we can include, the better the club as a
whole will be. We have been discussing these issues with various
Boxster owners for quite some time now, and we finally have a
volunteer that is eager to get these events going! Thanks, Bob!
There are lots of driving events coming up – Ladies, if you
ever even considered coming to an Autocross, the ladies-only
autocross school is coming up very quickly (Feb. 17)! And if you
have NOT considered coming to one – just show up and watch!
Come on out, and join the fun!

The Maverick Region Porsche Club opens the 2002 Autocross Season with our
"Intro to Autocross” & “Ladies Only Intro to Autocross” schools!
Anyone interested in driving, instructing or volunteering at this event should email email@example.com immediately to get on
board. Instructors and workers will get free timed fun runs at the end of the day! This is your chance to drive your car at our
new Pennington Field location before the season starts!!!
This year's school will be held February 16th at the Pennington Field Stadium parking lot in Bedford, Texas. If you attended,
worked or instructed at last year's school, you know that this is the perfect way to start the new season off right! Our Intro
School is designed specifically for the first time or novice autocrosser. Class sizes will be kept small so each student will have
their own instructor for the entire day! Our instructors are there to walk you through the entire process of having fun at a
Maverick Region Autocross. Our own Maverick Ladies will be instructing on Sunday!
The skills you can learn at our Autocross Series of events can help you become a safer, more confident driver in the real world.
Autocrossing is a safe, fun and addictive way to enjoy your car. The best way to get started autocrossing is to attend our AX 101
School. We will start the day with a brief classroom discussion that will focus on safety, car control and autocrossing basics. Then
you'll meet your driving instructor and by the end of the day you will have learned how to;
Register for an event • Get your car tech'd • How to walk a course • How to work a corner • How to prepare your car and yourself
Where to grid your car • How to drive a lap • Where to get your lap times
Besides getting to drive several instructed laps on an actual autocross course . . . you’ll get to practice:
Threshold braking • Regular, increasing and decreasing slaloms • Clockwise and counter-clockwise skidpads
Pre-registration is required and space is extremely limited. Last year's school sold out quickly. The first twenty spots are
first come-first served. If any additional spots become available later, they will be given to Maverick Region members first, then
other Porsche owners and then to all other applicants. One to one student/instructor ratios will be maintained. A waiting list
will be kept and entry decisions will be based on prior driving experience.
Official registration opens up during the Maverick New Members Party on February 3rd. See the page 3 for more details.
Online registration will be available at www.pca.org/mav after the New Members Party. All new Maverick members will receive
a $5 off discount coupon. We hope to see you there!

Because I Said So
by Wendy Shoffit, Editor
Isit here at my computer late on the night
before I’m to have the newsletter proof read
and brought to the printer. I’m trying to find
something witty to talk about and coming up
with nothing. James already talked about our ski
trip, where we *finally* went snowmobiling
(after I badgered him for 5 long years). He
already mentioned the upcoming AX 101 and
Ladies AX school. Not only that, he mentioned getting one more
lone volunteer to help out once a month to distribute Slipstreams
to a dealership.
Then it hits me, I ask myself why I used the term “lone volunteer?”
Why do those words overwhelm me with
sadness? I should feel happy that someone, anyone, stepped
forward to help out. But I’m not happy. I’m sad because in a club
with nearly 1000 members, we celebrate the one single person
who decides to lessen the load of someone else.
Frankly, I’m growing weary of asking, begging, or demanding
volunteers. After all, this is supposed to be a fun thing to do!
We belong to the best club in the world and drive the finest automobile
I can think of. All of us have lives outside of the club. We
are all dedicated to our families and our jobs. Yet I wonder what
personality trait it is that compels some of us to step forward and
do a job that no one else seems to want to do. Which job am I
talking about? Pick one... It’s not just the ones that take a lot of
time and energy to do, it’s even the easier ones. We all enjoy the
by Andy Mears, Maverick Region Secretary
The first board meeting of the New Year was
called to order at 7:00 PM at the home of
Wendy and James Shoffit. James quickly
informed us that he did not have an agenda and
immediately lost control of the meeting.
After regaining control the first item up is the
now ongoing debate on what to do about the
Maverick Region Logo in light of the request from
Porsche Cars North America that we cease all unapproved usage of the
Porsche crest and Porsche name including all goodie store merchandise
and printed materials. After much discussion regarding our
options for modifying the current MR PCA logo, motions were
passed to remove the Porsche crest from the MR logo and, that a
request for licensed usage of the Porsche crest be made to PCNA in
hopes of returning the MR logo back to its original image. If such an
agreement cannot be made then it will be up to the direction of the
MR Board as to whether or not to leave the modified logo in place or
pursue a redesign.
Lanean gave an update on the DE activities planned for 2002.
Everything is rolling along and expectations are to fill all available
slots. Also, Lanean shared a touching letter of thanks from the Hope
Shelter staff address to the MR club for all the support and donations
throughout the years.
events this club puts on. We take pride that Maverick Region puts
on a heckuva show, no matter in what venue...Club Races, DEs,
Rallies, Tours, Autocrosses, Time Trials, Happy Hours, Dinner
Socials, etc. Whatever this region touches turns to gold. It’s just
how we do things.
Can you imagine what would happen if one of those key
organizers decided they had had enough? They no longer had time
to do what they’d been doing for years? After all, they had a family
and a job that needed their attention. They didn’t have time for
Maverick Region. We would all suffer. But, do you know what?
Most of the people I know wouldn’t do that. They *find* the time
and make that commitment. They’re not afraid of taking on a task
they’ve never done before. They ask lots of questions and get lots
of answers from the others who had taken on that task before them
and were now onto another, different task. Look closely at the
board page and see how many duplicate names there are.
Every club goes through this very same problem. How to ask
members to put aside their “real” lives for even a brief time to give
of themselves to others. I wish I knew the answer. Maybe if you ask
50 times, you might just get another lone volunteer. I wonder,
how many times am I on now? I’ve lost count.
Thank you to every single volunteer who has helped Maverick
Region and the Porsche Club become what it is today. If this has
compelled you to help, contact James at email@example.com.
Joel Nannis has volunteered to coordinate a tour to the
International Exotic Feline Sanctuary on March 30, watch for the
ad and details in next month’s Slipstream.
Kevin Hardison reminded everyone that the new member
party is coming up on February 3 at which discount coupons for
the February AX School will be given to new members that attend
the party. Kevin reported that the AX School is coming together
and that he is looking for volunteers to help out email firstname.lastname@example.org
to volunteer or for more information.
Safety and Logistics Chairman, Joe McGlohen, requested and
the board approve a motion to purchase 4 flag sets for use at MR
sponsored Club Race events. With a conclusion of business for this
month, the meeting was brought to close. As always, check the web
site for the most current information about what is happening with
your Porsche Club.

Remembering John Clever
By Rik Larson, Sacramento Valley Region, and Jack Carpenter, Diablo Region
John Clever, a noted rallyist and PCA member for almost 41 years,
passed away on January 11, 2002. John was a dear friend,
rally partner, competitor, and rally master. He was an active
contributor on the regional, zone, and national level. He received the
PCA Enthusiast award in 1975 from the national organization.
John had attended many Porsche Parades and was very
proud to be one of the last people to sit down when it came time
to do the 'count up' at the Porsche Parades. John was the driving
force to having the 45th Porsche Parade being headquartered in
Sacramento and was the original chairperson. His many friends
will miss John.
--Rik Larson, Sacramento Valley Region
. . . one of the last people to sit
down when it came time to do
the “count up” at Parade . . .
Diablo Region and PCA have lost an outstanding and dedicated
John Clever had a heart attack this week and, like five years ago,
came home from the hospital early on January 11th in good sprits. So
good, in fact, that he phoned Judy Schreib and told her he would
probably go to Coco's for breakfast on Saturday, as usual. I am very
sorry to say that John had another heart attack later in the evening of
January 11th, and this time he didn't pull through.
PCA and Diablo Region in particular have lost one of the most
active and dedicated members I know in this or any other region. His
list of credits and accomplishments while a member of PCA would be
very difficult if not impossible to duplicate. John attended more
Parades, won more rallies, led more tours, put on more rallies,
and attended more social events than anyone I know. In addition to
his leadership as a nationally recognized rallymaster, John was a
charter member of the Diablo Region who held many elective offices,
including numerous terms as a Director and President.
John had an engineering degree and worked on many projects,
ranging from those assigned by the City Engineers Office in Walnut
Creek to the missile complex at Vandenberg AFB. He also referred to
himself as a farmer from Tracy who loved Porsches.
Well, we love you too, John, and we will all miss you very much.
--Jack Carpenter, President, Diablo Region
A Memorial or Remembrance for John Clever was planned for Sunday,
January 27th at 2 pm to be held at the family farm in Tracy, CA.
In lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting gifts to the George H. Clever
Planetarium or to the charity of one's own choice.

Happy Hour At Carraba’s
By Tinker Edwards
Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain,
Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck
My last happy hour as chairperson
and I almost didn’t
make it! Traffic, traffic, traffic
*#@!@$#$# (can *%!*#@ be said in
print?) between North Dallas and the
mid-cities and holiday travelers to
DFW airport and Christmas shoppers
everywhere… what was I thinking
when I scheduled this happy hour! I
guess I was thinking we had such a great time at Carrabba’s in August
with a fantastic turnout from the midcities, why not try it again and
again we had another big turnout!
Future happy hour chairperson Dennis Chamberlain and his
special guest, Stephanie Nix were caught in the traffic but managed to
join us in time for dinner. It was a real treat to have Ed Mayo join us
for his first happy hour although he tried to find a few excuses not to
come, he came, he mingled and I think enjoyed himself? Also we met
new member Richard Voreis, return new member Peter Weyandt and
future new members Monda Degan and George Whitaker.
Two years ago I started the Happy Hours under the New
Members Mentor Program to get more new members involved. I
really have enjoyed every minute of it but it is time to pass the torch
or steering wheel on to someone else for fresh ideas and new places to
visit. So now we have Dennis Chamberlain and his crew – Mark Gluck
and Dee Lersch - to “steer” us on to more fun places.
...can’t wait for more surprise guests
like Cher or Stephanie Nix . . .
I know I will leave someone out but I do want to thank Ben Witry
and Ruben Muro who were my original co-chairs and thanks to the
regular happy hourers who have been there to help meet and greet the
new members thru the months. Dennis, it’s all yours now and I can’t
wait for more surprise guests like Cher or Stephanie Nix.
Remember, It’s not just the cars …………..

Tires and the Seat of your Pants
By John Hajny, Central New York
Let's talk about the ultimate characteristic that sets a really
skilled driver apart from the norm. The fastest drivers all share
certain attributes to one degree or another; fearlessness,
"natural ability,"concentration, experience, good equipment, etc.
But there is one characteristic that sets the Schumacher's and the
Senna's of this world apart: FEEL. This is not an exclusive trait, and
it can be learned by anyone; the level of one's drive and goals
notwithstanding. This is the trait we are ultimately trying to develop
in ourselves, as without it, a driver will never be as one with his or
her means of conveyance and the stretch of road in question.
Do some people inherently have a better sense of feel than
others? Good question. Perhaps it would be more accurate to state
that certain individuals possess a higher innate sensibility where the
dynamics of road feel are concerned. In the end, anyone can
improve in this regard. Some just have to try harder. Improved feel
for the road also generally leads to a heightened sense of overall
awareness. That's really what Driver's Ed. is all about.
You might have heard it said that a driver's most sensitive organ
must be his or her backside. This is not as flippant as it may initially
sound. One's nether regions, in conjunction with the ears, eyes,
hands, and a healthy dose of intuition born of experience, make up
the proverbial "seat of the pants" feel that we are striving for.
Without it, one can never progress beyond merely driving
well mechanically. How can we accelerate our acquisition of this
At this juncture, I want to focus on one basic component of
feel, and lend some advice for the novice Driver's Ed. student. Let's
talk tires. Tires are a big part of what we do on the track. I might
imagine that drivers spend more time discussing tires and their
effective deployment than any other topic. This has the unfortunate
tendency of making people, particularly the novice, believe that tires
are the most important part of the driving equation. If one has
progressed to the higher levels of performance driving, then tires are
indeed a valid concern. However, to start thinking about the "fastest
tire" before one has learned the how and why of their usage will
actually retard one's learning of the most important lessons;
mainly that of feel and car control.
As previously stated, the goal of Driver's Ed. is to teach you car
control. You will coincidentally develop a greater sense of feel, and a
heightened sense of what the car is doing and what it needs in order
to go faster in a smoother and safer fashion. There are many things
that contribute to the learning of feel: how deeply padded your
seats are, how stiff the suspension, whether your tires squeal a lot,
etc. However, how much cornering grip your tires have is the
Unless one is Idiot Savant, one cannot play Chopin without
learning where the notes are on the keyboard. You can't learn to
drive well by going fast first! You need to learn what to do, and what
the car will do, gradually, and the easiest most effective way to
accomplish this is to do it at a speed that will allow you to access
your and your car's limits repeatedly. A speed where you reach the
abyss...and learn through experience how to return from it safely. A
speed that won't land you in deep do-do without your knowing
how to wield the shovel first! It's in the tires, you know?
R-compound tires are great fun and allow you to really fly, but
you have to earn those wings. Below the R-tire's limits, they will lull
you unto a false sense of security and make up for many inappropriate
driving habits. When you push it, the super-high grip of these
tires is accompanied by a more sudden loss of that grip; they are far
less forgiving than street tires. On top of that, if you've got the tires
without the talent, you won't have the ingrained instinctual
reactions available to help you deal with sudden cornering distress.
. . . a driver’s most sensitive organ
must be his or her backside . . .
Think of some of the great drivers: A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti,
Jeff Gordon. They cut their teeth on dirt tracks where sliding is
control. Most every F-1 and CART pilote has at least some karting
experience -- the better the driver, likely the more karting he's done.
Learning with a car that moves around a lot will speed your
ascension into the ranks of the skilled drivers. Street tires allow a car
to slide around a lot compared to their R-compound siblings. The
lessons learned while sliding about are as important to the equation
as making sure the car has gas. If you've been coveting a set of
R1s...wait. Learn how to boil water before you try your hand at

By Wendy Shoffit
I’ve been going to the Maverick Region holiday parties for probably
4 years now. I have *never* seen as large of a crowd attend
as I did this year. I would estimate that nearly 200 people made
an appearance. I’ve wondered why this year so many came. Maybe
it was everyone feeling the need to connect and feel safe with
friends and family. I, personally, was having a difficult time this
year getting into the “swing” of the holiday season. Something just
didn’t feel right. Lots of people around me seemed to be experiencing
the same thing. I guess coming to a party made it a little easier
to feel joy and the holiday spirit. Either that or the promise of
Joe McGlohen’s brisket brought everyone!

but when I saw there was very little left, I decided it had to be safe
and tried some. I was glad I did and, boy, was I sorry I had waited
so long! It was wonderful. Mavericks are certainly a talented bunch
of cooks. I wonder what we’ll all come up with next year...

Whatever it was that brought them, the party-goers had a
great time! The home of Lee and Linda Wilkins is just stunning and
the perfect setting for our gathering. It was decorated beautifully,
including an enormous Christmas tree. If only I could get *my*
house to look that good! We were all very sad to not see Linda’s
smiling face that evening as she was not feeling well. I’m sure Lee
could have used her help! I think hosting duties were quite challenging!
Fortunately, there were quite a few Maverick ladies who
gladly pitched in to make the hosting job easier. Lee and helpers did
a wonderful job!
Of course, the food that everyone brought was to die for!
There were more varieties of desserts than I’d ever seen. From
cookies to cakes, brownies to cheesecake. The most unusual dessert
award, however, goes to Jack Wales who brought a custard dish prepared
in a pumpkin gourd. I was intimidated by it for a little while,

. . . I decided it had to be safe . . .
In addition to everyone needing to bring a side dish to the
party, the entry fee included a new or slightly loved stuffed animal
for the Hope Shelter. That evening we collected over 100 animals
for the kids! Not only did we collect all those toys, some people
brought other items to take to the shelter. We had planned a trip
there for the following day. It all worked out nicely.

Jasmine also seemed to have a fabulous time. She and Geneva

pull out of the driveway that night and Jasmine was out like a light.
I love it when I can spend a great evening talking to so many
good friends, eating delicious food, and having my daughter
snoozing on the way home, with a huge smile on her face!
Thanks so much to Lee and Linda Wilkins for once again
opening up their home to the Maverick Region members and

Valve Covers: Early 911
By Wayne Dempsey, Intermountain Region
One of the most common problems with the older 911 is the
occurrence of major oil leaks. While some oil leaks are
harder to fix than others, the oil leaks that originate from
the 911 valve covers are very easy to fix. From 1968-77 the upper
valve covers were magnesium. While very lightweight, there is a
coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch between the cam tower
and the valve covers. In other words, when the engine heats up, the
valve covers expand at a different rate than the cam towers. This
causes the magnesium covers to warp, and subsequently leak. It is
this leak from the valve covers that is very common on the older
If your SC or Carrera is leaking from the bottom covers, the
Turbo valve covers that are reinforced will help prevent this leak.
Since this is a very common upgrade, it may have already been performed
on your car. Check to see if your covers have been upgraded
before you order a new set. The newer ones are all aluminum,
and the lower covers have fins that criss-cross the outer surface.
. . . a good chance that you will have
a major oil spill if you don’t . . .
To see if your car is suffering from valve cover leaks, take a look
under the car and check the bottom of both the left and right valve
covers. If there are oil drips there, as well as oil on your heat
exchangers, there is a good chance that your covers are leaking.
Check the ones on top too, from within the engine compartment.
These are also very prone to leaking. A good way to check for leaks
is to clean the entire engine. You can clean the bottom of the engine
by taking it to a self-serve car wash that has a degreaser setting on
the nozzle. Don't spray any water inside the engine compartment, as
there are many things in there that you just don't want to get wet.
Instead, use some degreaser on a rag to wipe out the inside of your
engine compartment. Please don't dump any degreaser on your
driveway, as this pollutes the environment.
If you suspect that your valve covers are leaking, then simply
remove them from the engine and check to see if they are warped. If
you place the magnesium valve covers on a flat surface, you can
check to see if they are warped or not. Even if they don't appear to
be warped, remember that they will deform when they are heated by
the motor. If the valve covers are warped, then you should definitely
The standard upgrade is to replace the valve covers with late 911
Turbo valve covers. This is a bolt-on replacement for 911 owners. Make
sure that you empty the motor of oil before you remove the valve covers,
as there is a good chance that you will have a major oil spill if you
don't. The Turbo valve covers are made of aluminum, and will expand
at the same rate as the cam towers, thus decreasing the amount of
warpage. The upper valve cover looks very similar to the original magnesium
one, except for the fact that it is unpainted. The lower valve
cover has fins to improve cooling and also increase stiffness.
If you own a 914-6 or are performing a 914-6 conversion, you
need to machine down a section of the lower valve covers on both
sides in order to have them clear the rear trailing arms. If you don't
do this, then you will not be able to remove the covers without
either removing the studs from the cam towers, or dropping the
engine. The fins must be machined down about a quarter of an inch
in order to accommodate the rear trailing arms of the 914.
Machining the covers will not hurt them, and they will still function
When you install the Turbo valve covers, make sure that you
use a new set of valve cover gaskets, screws and washers. The valve
cover kit comes complete with all the nuts, washers and gaskets. It is
important not to over-torque the nuts on the valve covers. I was not
able to locate a torque specification in the factory manuals, but I
would not torque them greater than 8 ft-lbs. Make sure that you
torque them down in a diagonal pattern, and it is advised to start at
4 ft-lbs., and then after all of them are tight, re-torque to 8 ft-lbs.
Well, that's about it. It's a really easy upgrade that should stop
one of the most annoying leaks on a 911. No more smoke coming
out of the rear of the car as the heat exchangers burn off excess oil!

I’m Marrying a Maverick
By Beth Wright
Before I met my fiance’, Brian Scudder, I thought a Maverick
was a basketball player in Dallas, but after a year of attending
DE’s, Club Races and Happy Hours I now know the
truth…Mavericks are unique individuals with a passion for
Porsches unequaled in the United States.
My first Maverick event was the February 2001 DE at
Motorsport Ranch. Brian had to be there at an ungodly early
hour so I told him I would meet him after my hair appointment
that morning. I arrived, perfectly coifed, only to be greeted by a
howling cross wind that cut like a knife and left me disheveled. I
went to the wall to watch Brian drive and was witness to what
came to be known as the “full Scudder”. Wow, I thought, this driving
stuff is cool, I’m going to like this! Unfortunately/fortunately
I have yet to witness another full Scudder.
. . . was witness to what came to
be known as a “full Scudder” . . .
My second major Porsche event was the Lone Star Region’s
Club Race at Texas World Speedway in March 2001. This was
Brian’s first Club Race and the excitement of seeing him on the
track was equaled only by the excitement of trying to keep his 928
running long enough to get him on the track. It was here that I
learned that girlfriends are pit crews and as one wily racer told us
“you’ve got to keep the women hungry, then they work harder
and faster so you’ll get done and they can have a meal”.
A recent post on the MRPCA Yahoo groups list was entitled
“You know you’re a racer when…” and included “…after you tell
your wife where you’d like to go on your vacation she answers
‘Why…is there a race there?’” Brian’s second Club Race was at
Putnam Park in beautiful Mt. Meridian, Indiana. This was the
destination of our first vacation together in June 2001. I should
have known when I was asked if I would like to visit family in
Illinois and Indiana for our vacation that Brian had a race in
mind too. But that’s okay because I learned valuable information
at Putnam Park. It was there that I met a racer’s wife named Peggy
who proudly showed off her diamond jewelry collection and
related how each piece was a direct result of her husband’s
The culmination of our racing season occurred in October at
the Maverick Region’s Club Race at Texas Motor Speedway. Brian
was the chair of the event and also a racer so the tension was palpable.
Between the logistics, the unwieldy chicane and the mysterious
problems in the 928 that caused it to stall repeatedly on the
track, we somehow survived and breathed a sigh of relief when it
was finally over and had been a success. Now that Brian had time
to think clearly again, he came to his senses and proposed in
November. I thought it was odd when he chose not to attend the
Founder’s Day dinner, but he had a more romantic setting in
mind for popping the question.
Once our families had been given the news we talked about
setting a date. My first thought was September 28th (get it? 9-28!)
but we couldn’t wait that long and started looking at dates in May.
Believe it or not, we did set our wedding date around driving
events so that our good friends in the Porsche Club wouldn’t have
a conflict. Hey, we’re not naïve, we know we wouldn’t be first
choice! We toyed briefly with having the reception at TMS, and
we joked about registering at The Porsche Store. If it weren’t
for the roll cage we might have wanted to drive the race car
to the reception. We also
planned the honeymoon
so we’d be back in time
for the Club Race over
Memorial Weekend. Once
we’re married and the
Porsches are “ours,”
I look forward to seeing
you at future events as
a New Maverick.
