Top ten lists: They are everywhere these days.
David Letterman should be proud of how
his comedy platform has become a way of
life. Not that Letterman invented top-ten lists,
but he definitely brought them into our everyday
usage in the 1980s. I did one several columns ago
about my personal 10 favorite Porsche racecars
and 10 favorite Porsche road cars. I tried to keep
the cars in the road/street category mostly legal
for sale in the US (or easily imported and federalized) and
somewhat affordable (if there is such a thing). I found it
interesting that Excellence magazine in their April issue, which hits
the stands in February, did a story on the top ten “Driver's
Porsches” as compiled from the individual lists of several
well-known Porsche enthusiasts and well-connected individuals.
I enjoyed it, but it's like asking a few people what is their favorite
... Call me crazy, but I like when new
catalogs come in the mail ...
Italian food. First- the category was broad. There were racecars
and exotic cars all mixed together. Second, with the exception of
Walter Rohrl, I'm not sure how much of a “Driver” any of those
people really are. But at the end of the article- the composite list is
really cool. The final list was much better, in my opinion that most
of their individual lists, which reflected too much their station in
life, age, last car driven, or business influence.
The final list included (in order of votes): Carrera GT, 993
Carrera RS 3.8, 911 Carrera RS 2.7, 996 GT3, Boxster/S, 914-6,
959, 996 Twin-Turbo, Early 911S 2.2/2.4, 996 Carrera 4S. I agree
with every car here as an icon for great driving with the exception
of the last one, as it is completely contained inside a 996 Twin
Turbo, but with 100 less horsepower. That isn't the case with the
early 911S versus the 1973 RS 2.7. Those early 911Ss were still
quite a bit lighter and as nimble as the RS, and there were far
more of them available (US legal) than RS 2.7s. Yet, the 996 TT
has more cars on the road than the C4S model. I know the widebody
non-turbo has been a trademark of Porsche production
since the 1984 Turbo look Carreras, but I wouldn't classify them
a better driver than their turbocharged counterparts. Boost is
good. I guess I'll nitpick on the Carrera GT a little too. Since when
does a car you can't buy yet, that was driven by Jerry Seinfeld, a
few car journalists, and basically just the Porsche factory qualify
as the best driver's Porsche ever made? I guess everyone figures it
just will be the best, and they are probably right, but why not say
the Dauer European street-legal 962C is the best?
While we are speaking about Excellence Magazine and while
we are on the subject of lists, let me throw one more at you- my
favorite list of magazines/reading material that comes in the mail:
4) Road and Track
5) Car and Driver
6) Grass Roots Motorsports
7) Harbor Freight Catalog
8) Tweeks Catalog
9) Griots Garage Catalog
10) Eastwood Catalog
Call me crazy, but I like it when new catalogs come in the
mail also. They don't change much from issue to issue, but I
shiver with excitement to think of what my garage would look
like if I could buy every tool and accessory, or care-care product
I could afford in those catalogs. I peruse 911 and Porsche World,
Victory lane, Hemmings, Motor Trend, CAR, Autosport, and
various F1 magazines at Barnes and Noble while enjoying a
Starbucks once a month, also. Yeah, I know, my kids didn't think
that was legal either, until I took them with me, and showed them
everyone else who was doing it. Besides, I've spent plenty in there
on books and music. One final shopping note- LeMans, the
movie has been available for a few months on DVD. I picked up
a copy at Best Buy in Grapevine (they had three on the shelf) for
$14.95. I thought that was close enough to the Amazon price that
I could have it now instead of waiting.
March is going to be a great month for Maverick events. We
have two schools for Autocross out at Mineral Wells, the Swap
meet at Zims (don't miss it), and the East Texas Daffodil tour. In
addition to our regular lunches, monthly happy hour and the first
Club Race in Zone 5 for the year down at Texas World Speedway
at the end of the month. We also have a dinner social on March
13 at the Snooty Pig in Fort Worth near loop 820 and I35W off
of Westport Parkway. One last item- please reread page 11
of your February Slipstream, and if you haven't already, please
consider helping the Hope Shelter in our rebuilding project. Till
As one of only two dealerships in the country to earn the Premiere Dealer and
Perfect Service Award - and the only one in the Lone Star State - we were, shall
we say, a bit excited. Thanks to our incredible clients, our perfection-driven
staff, and Porsche, for giving us a reason to celebrate today, and every day.

You wouldn’t believe how much fun I had
at the TT104 advanced school last
weekend! That one-day trip to Mineral
Wells did several things for me. Most
importantly, I finally got to drive all three Time
Trial courses. Until that day, I would have
argued that there really weren’t three different
courses used at our Time Trials, but now I’m a
believer. I had driven on course 1 and 3 before,
but course 2 was all new to me. The biggest difference is that 2
is run counter-clockwise (1 and 3 are both clockwise). Now that
I’ve seen all of the courses, I feel a lot more comfortable
attending TT’s later this season. If you didn’t get out to TT104
this year, mark your calendar for next year, you’ll learn a lot.
This month’s Slipstream is packed full of great reading. We
have a wide variety of articles for your pleasure including two
articles that should help you to understand the upcoming 2004
Porsche Parade that will be right here in Fort Worth. You can
expect more articles in upcoming issues that will enlighten even
by Mimi Spreen
The February Board meeting was held at the
home of Karen and Keith Olcha on Tuesday,
February 3, 2004 and was called to order at 7:05
pm. Attendees: Karen & Keith Olcha, Jan Mayo, Teri
& Charlie Davis, Mike Brodigan, Michael Wingfield,
Wendy Shoffit, Noby Takahashi, Lanean Hughes,
Matt Platts, Bill Miller, Chuck Machala, Joe
McGlohen, Dennis Chamberlain, Bob Knight, John
Sandusky & Mimi Spreen.
Jan - Regarding Parade, according to National, 1 week after
registration opened we have 506 registrants. Some trophies will be given
out at the Sunday banquet such as long distance, President’s Award,
Newsletter, and Webmaster, instead of it traditionally being given out at
Monday’s concours banquet. We have a warehouse for shipments to
come to prior to Parade that is 5 miles from the Worthington. The
warehouse has dock doors and a pallet jack, so shipments that arrive on
palette won't be a problem.
Lanean - Tire companies at the Parade DE will be Toyo and Bobby
Archer and at the Club Race, Michelin and Bobby Archer.
Dennis - We had 48 attendees at the Happy Hour at Nuevo Leon.
The next Happy Hour is at Saltgrass Steak House in Irving. Dave &
the well-traveled Parade-goer. Actually, the articles will be
written by several of those past Parade-goers with the intention
of sharing their knowledge and experiences from past Parades.
It will be a busy, hot, week in July, so we are going to try to equip
you with plenty of information to help you decide which events
interest you most. We also have a special issue of Slipstream
planned for July that will be overflowing with Parade stuff. We
will do our best to get that issue in your hands as early as
possible with the hopes of it being a piece of reference material
to help you through the week.
I’ll wrap up this month’s column with another reminder
that we have a very busy spring and early summer lined up. Now
that the schools are winding down, an extremely busy April
with several competitive driving events and the spring tour to
the Texas hill country is upon us. May is a little quieter, but it
includes the annual May at Mayo’s dinner social. Then June
is right back at it with many driving events including a
Drivers Education at MotorSport Ranch. Get your tires and
brake fluid ready!
Busters in Dallas is after that, and then Joe T. Garcias in Fort Worth.
John Sandusky - We currently have 92 paid entrants for the DE,
there are some spots open in the higher run groups.
Chuck - AX on Feb 21 and 22 at Pennington Field in Bedford.
Bill Miller - Time Trial 104 has 33 of 36 slots filled.
Joe - Radio storage boxes - approved for Joe to spend $600.00.
Noby - Insurance is taken care of.
Mike Brodigan - Advertising is fully current.
Bob - Received National rebate.
Teri - No rallies any time soon and there won't be any until after
Parade. Too many other things going on and the calendar is full.
Wendy - Still needs volunteers for the AX schools on Feb 21 & 22.
Matt - Thanks to everyone for getting February articles in on-time.
Mimi - Dinner social on Saturday, March 13 at Snooty Pig in North
Fort Worth, formerly Cactus Flower Cafe. Please remember to RSVP.
Motion was made to adjourn the meeting at 8:25, the motion was
seconded and approved.
Contrary to magazines which start reminding you to renew 13 years
before your current subscription expires, PCA only sends out one
renewal notice. If you do not pay your dues before (or *slightly* after)
your membership expires, you will be dropped from the national roster.
That means you'll no longer get Panorama, Slipstream, or first priority
into DEs! PCA makes it easy to renew with both mail-in forms and
online registration. Besides, it's only $42 per year!
Remember to Renew!
Help us help you and RENEW!
If you are thinking of not renewing, please contact one of the board
members on page 4 so we can know what we're doing that isn't suiting
you. If we don't know that there's a problem, we can't fix the problem.
We want you to be happy in the club and are doing our very best to
schedule a variety of events for everyone.
Happy Hour at Nuevo Leon
by Dennis ChamberlainWe had one of the best
turnouts of new members
ever for our first
happy hour for 2004. The total
attendance was 48, and 7 were new
members. We even had visitors that
were just thinking about buying a
Porsche. And I can't think of a
Happy Hour Crew: Mark Gluck, happy hour host that embraces us
Tinker Edwards and Dennis Chamberlain
more than Nuevo Leon.
Scott Janke (1995 993) was a
first time attendee. Scott tried to
come to the December happy
hour at the Elephant Bar, but it
was just not meant to be. And
Scott, I’m sorry I married you off
in last month's article. As can be
seen in the photo on this page,
Scott is single and had no problem
making new friends.

Hope “Building” Update
By Mark Gluck
Re-Building Hope is an exciting project to benefit the
club's sponsored charity, Hope, Inc. The Hope
Shelter, as we more commonly know it, provides
essential refuge and associated services to women and
children who are victims of domestic violence and abuse.
Presently housed in an old, inadequate structure,
the Porsche community has undertaken to organize the
development of a new building. A new structure will enable
the Shelter to expand the wonderful work it is doing, and
provide a much improved, safer and stress-free environment
for the residents. It will also be a magnificent, and
permanent, testament to the community spirit embodied
by our club. It certainly is not the cars, its the people!
A small committee has come together to spearhead
the effort, and they have determined that the best course
will be to build a new structure on land already owned by
the Shelter. Justin Hiegel is working on the design, Bill
Middleton on project management with others like John
Lersch and Bob Lewis helping in areas like engineering,
permitting, soil testing, etc. Lanean Hughes has long
coordinated the club’s support of the Shelter and works
closely with the Shelter director, Lisa Huffaker. Even with
these dedicated people, we would benefit enormously
from YOUR involvement!
Anyone who has contacts, expertise or wishes to fund
any of the typical early aspects of construction is welcome
to participate! We need surveying, soil testing (for
foundations) and shortly will need some of the
initial construction activity, such as grading, utilities,
foundation, fencing, etc. There are many opportunities to
be a key part of this exciting project - for example
organizing sponsorship or media coverage. Please let me
know how you would like to become involved, and we will
make it available for you.
Yes! I want to help. Here’s How:

Time Trial 104
by Sarena Michaels and Ken Hawkins
From a First Timer’s Perspective
Iwas not sure what to expect as we loaded up to drive for one
and a half hours at five o'clock in the morning (tell me why
again?). I have heard a lot of talk about cars, fast driving and
the like for close to two years, now I was going to see.
We entered the parking lot and all I saw were Porsches. (I
have been taught recently to pronounce this: poor sh - a, not
poorsh, sorry if I offended anyone). Needless to say, I was sure
no one was even going to say hello to us, but have been
reassured many times that this is family.
As the "team" (Ed - Ken Hawkins and Don Ingram) began
adjustments to the Z, I sat and watched. Unsure of what I could
and couldn't do here, I hung back, trying to stay out of the way
- yet be supportive at the same time. The team encouraged
me to join them at tech inspection, drivers meetings, and
everything else. From the time we arrived, everything seemed
to be moving very swiftly, so much so that I was denied the
early morning pictures I had anticipated taking.
After the first drivers' meeting, I learned that half of the
team would be working a corner and the other half driving the
course. I had envisioned the team driving together as I have
seen in endless videos over the past two years. I was bummed
by this until I realized that working a corner is an integral
part of the process and fair to all drivers involved. Besides, I
would be getting to hear two stories throughout the day about
the courses and how the car ran, rather than one from the
both of them.
I was involved in posting, which took me away at one
point from getting to watch my significant other on one of his
runs. His first run was somewhat stressful for me, but I quickly
came to realize that this club is all about safety. I didn't see any
out-of-control driving, and everyone was very cognizant.
The Z began to leak some oily substance, only a few drops
that I could tell, but enough to convince the team to park her,
not only for their safety and the cars' well being, but for
the drivers' on the course as well. Please note: I was very
disappointed by this, as I didn't get to enjoy a "fun run", that
would have topped the day off for me! Any chance those can
be moved to the 8:45 a.m. time slot in April?
If you are reading this article (driver or non-driver) and
are wondering if you'll have a good time, Yes. You will be
surrounded by people who are genuine and part of a close-knit
group. Thank you for your hospitality on Saturday (especially
Jan) and I will definitely be back when the weather is nicer.

From a student’s perspective
It's a new year, a new season of driving events with the
Maverick Region Porsche Club, and another season of
Mineral Wells weather. I'm not sure what it is about Mineral
Wells, but it always seems to be colder, hotter, or wetter, than
any place on the planet. Or at least it seems that way. Everyone
was all bundled up trying to stay warm, but no one minded.
We were going to drive our cars, see our friends, and that's all
that mattered. It's like a big family, where driving fast is the
food we crave.
Since this was a driver education, we were going to see all
three tracks in one day, something I had never done before.
There were some things I know I do correctly, and some
things I know I need work on. Hopefully I would come away
a better driver than when I arrived.
There was also another aspect to this particular event,
bringing my girlfriend to the races for the first time. I was
looking forward to introducing her to everyone she had heard
me talk so much about, and showing her, what Time Trials
were all about. I was also going to be sharing the Z with
my good friend Don Ingram. This would be my first
opportunity to see my own car on course, as well as see how
Don would handle driving a car with power to the rear wheels
instead of the front wheels like he is use to.
After the mandatory drivers meeting, students and
instructors paired up, and cars began getting to the grid. First
course up would be course #3. Followed by course #1, and
then finally course #2 to end the day. Naturally we would
take a break for lunch, but personally, I have to have someone
pushing sandwiches at me since I get so involved I forget
Each course was run, and quickly changed for the next,
and as the day progressed it was interesting to see the
conversations taking place between instructors and students.
The "car like" hand gestures showing what the car did, or was
suppose to do, were everywhere as was the laughter of friends
poking fun with each other. From what Joel Nannis was saying,
there was also some gymnastics taking place off the back of a
pick up truck, uninjured gymnast to remain unnamed. Even
the best driver can be a bit clumsy I guess. Naturally there
were the moments during the day where someone had
pushed a bit too hard, and took "the scenic" route, but no
damage was done, a credit to the safety of these events.
I would have to rate TT104 as a success! I learned more
about driving the courses, and more about my car than I
knew before, even though my day was cut a bit short by a
power steering fluid leak. Thank goodness for trailers! Special
thanks needs go out to the organizers because without their
hard work and effort, events like TT104 would not be
possible. My personal thanks go out to Maverick Region PCA
and it's members for putting on these events, and for the
welcome they always extend to me. I can't think of a better
group of people to spend a day with.

Parade Concours d’Elegance
By Bob Bianconi
Photo by Bob Bianconi
It's coming but what is it?
The 2004 Porsche Parade is coming to Fort Worth in July and
one of the four big events scheduled for the week is the
Concours d'Elegance. A Concours, simply put, is a car show
where cars - Porsches in our case - are judged against criteria such
as originality and cleanliness.
There are 3 groups consisting of:
Restoration - A Porsche has undergone some level of
restoration like new paint, interior, body parts
Preservation - A well-preserved older car that is pretty
much as it came from the factory.
Preparation - Generally newer models wherein the
owner has cleaned his car really well.
Judges don’t miss a trick, so there are no cutting corners!
Note: To all you Concours fanatics, I'm simplifying, so calm
down! If any of you are interested in the details and nuances of
the Concours d'Elegance, read the Parade Competition Rules on
the PCA website.
Entrants compete against other cars in their “class” and
trophies are awarded. The judging is an all day event culminating
in an awards banquet in the evening.
So what can you expect at the Parade Concours d'Elegance?
The Concours venue will be Main Street in Fort Worth between
the Courthouse and 6th Street. The city will be closing off the
street for us. We anticipate 90-100 cars entered in the judging.
Besides the cars participating, we will have two other areas of
interest. First is a display of historic Porsches; the second will be
a display of cars participating the Club Race scheduled for later in
the week at Texas Motor Speedway.
Where else do you have the opportunity to view some of
Porsche's finest cars, see rare models and do it right in your own

Cars in the “Full” category get every compartment inspected
For others, they clean the car and enter it for fun. In fact, this
is the biggest category of Concours entrants.
There are 2 categories here. In one category you clean the
whole car: inside, outside, engine and undercarriage. This is
The second category is called "Touring" where you need to
clean everything except the undercarriage.
To enter the Concours you must register as a Porsche Parade
entrant. The entry form was in the November issue of Panorama
or it can be found on the '04 Parade website, www.parade04.org.
The Spectators view
Everyone is welcome and it's free. Monday the 5th stop by
Main Street in Fort Worth from 9AM until 4PM and gaze at the
array of Porsches, from the early 356's to the latest models. There
are plenty of places to park around the Concours site but be
aware that the nearby side streets will be blocked off, which
will likely cause you to detour around Main Street. My personal
recommendation is a 5-story garage caddy-corner from
Bring your camera. The red bricks of Main Street will
present a picture perfect setting. You might even catch a glimpse
of Peter Porsche!
The 2004 Parade Concours d'Elegance will be, in one word,
The Participants View
Take pride in the care and feeding of your Porsche? Wax it to
death?Wash it after you drive it? Or maybe, you drive it once in a
blue moon?Then Concours is for you!
Actually, the Concours is for everyone! Some folks take the
Concours very seriously and they spend weeks and months
preparing their car.

My First Parade
By Mimi Spreen
My first Parade was the 1989 Michigan Parade. I was
completely new to Porsches, anyway, but I was very excited about
going to “Parade.” Everyone talked about how fabulous "Parade"
was and I couldn't wait to get the registration information in the
Panorama. The big day came to mail the registration and I wanted
to be involved in this in every way possible, so I told Carey I
would take it to the Post Office and make sure the postmark was
legible. Well I had other stuff to mail at the same time and decided
to drop off the other mail in the boxes outside and take the
precious registration inside where it was going to be hand
stamped. I was running short on time and decided to make two
trips to the post office. Back at the office I discovered, to my horror
that I put the registration in the box outside the Post Office.
I think that was when I knew I could live with this man the
rest of my life!!
When we arrived in Traverse City, what a beautiful sight.
Porsches everywhere and the headquarters was beautiful. The
Concours was completely amazing to me. How could these
people spend so much money on a car and never drive it? The tire
booties, the Q-tips, the hermetically sealed trailers, all of it was
way, way beyond my comprehension.

shower, and a chiropractor ...

The rally, well, in my opinion, there are two types of people:
those who like to rally and those who would rather go to the
dentist for a root canal. You'll find me in the dentist's chair every
The driving event was the most exciting time I remember
having. Maybe because I was so new at autocrossing that I didn't
care what place I finished in. The course was so tight that the
914's did really well. In fact, Carey finished with Top Time of Day
and you might have thought I won Top Time of Day. I was the
one jumping up and down, while he kept saying, "it's a fluke." On
Friday night when Wolfgang Porsche presented the cup to Carey,
I think he realized just how real it was.
The feeling at the Parade, no matter which one it was, is
always one of excitement, anticipation, and seeing old and new
Frantically, I called the Post Office and explained my situation.
They calmly told me the mail would be taken out of the box out
front and postmarked with today's date, so I shouldn't worry
about it. Well, I think this is the first time Carey has heard about
it and we obviously made it to Parade, but what a beginning.
Carey and I lived in Dallas and decided to drive up to
Michigan straight through, without stopping, except for potty
breaks and food. For those of you who have now or have ever had
a 1970 914-6 you know what a lovely drive that was for 18 hours.
Did I mention the stiff suspension and no air conditioning and,
oh yeah, no radio!! We left Dallas at midnight and arrived in
South Bend Indiana at 5:30 pm in desperate need of real food, a
shower and a chiropractor.

friends. I've been to 9 Parades and have enjoyed them all. Some
more than others, especially the Monterey Parade in 1990. I won
the first door prize, an engagement ring, and was proposed to in
front of 600 people at the Welcome Party on the tennis courts. I
don't remember much else, but I'm sure it was great.
If you are even thinking of going, fill out your registration
form and mail it in. Be sure to sign up for everything to get the
full experience. You'll have such a great time and meet so many
new people, you'll want to keep going year after year. You can
always change your mind about rallying, but it really is something
to do at least once.
Looking forward to Ft. Worth and hope to see many familiar
faces and make some new friends, too.

New Member Party
By Robyn Howard
Of course it was a very cold and windy day. After-all, we are in Texas.
Everybody that we met treated us like we had been friends for a long
time. At first I thought, “Wow how obsessed can you be over a car?”
When I was told about the ladies Driving School, Wendy said that they would
teach me how to make our Porsche spin? I can’t wait to “spin my Porsche,” I
thought, “I don't want to learn that, or even to get educated about driving it.”
Well, now that I have my own “944 - Baby”, I do understand!
Throughout the afternoon we talked to many people. Some were new
members, like ourselves, others were long-timers who came to welcome the
new members to the club. Everyone answered questions that we had, all the

ALL. Dee Lersch walked up and gave me a hug (I had only met her once
before). After that I figured, well, I must be home. I really like what the club
does with the Hope Shelter. As a Realtor, I do a lot of volunteer work and that
really hit home with me. It was definitely worth the drive to Texas Motor
Speedway on that cold and windy day, and meeting everyone else who decided
to do the same.
I am so glad to be a part of such a wonderful family!
Daytona Rolex 24-Hours
by Jack Ormberget
Photo by Jack Ormberget
Of all the resolutions that I have made in each New Year,
this year is lined up to be the year that I will actually stick
with it. Of course, why not? This year I promised that I
would become more active in my love of motor sports, including
becoming heavily involved in the PCA.
In that spirit, I made up my mind to attend the premier
sports car racing event in the US, The 24 Hours of Daytona. This
legendary event demonstrates the car’s, the driver’s, and the
team’s ability to persevere through a grueling 24 hour period of
flat-out racing against several classes of cars, competitors and
financial backing levels.
... not given an opportunity to
snooze during the race ...
As I rarely do things in a traditional manner, I decided that
I would try to work some of my connections to see if I could
attend the event as a crew member rather than a spectator. I
researched teams that were running Porsches (of course) and
decided to contact a few to see if they could use the help of an
eager and capable body.
The first team I actually spoke with was Rodger Hawley of
Orbit Racing. He was very kind and after a little convincing, I
persuaded him to let me work with their team as a “clock man.”
I would be in charge of keeping track of the leader's stints
between pit/fuel stops. This meant both that I would be in the
pit with the crew and likely not given an opportunity to snooze
during the race. I was very excited.
Orbit's car was driven by Joe and Jay Policastro, Johnny
Mowlem, Mike Fitzgerald and Robin Liddell. The car is owned
by Joe and Jay, and as far as privateers go, this was one well run
effort. Roger is a top-notch team owner and has campaigned
successfully with the Policastro's and several other driver/owners
in prior events. Roger demonstrated his abilities as a sharp
strategist, accomplished mechanical technician, and even
jumped the wall a couple of times to change tires and make
vehicle adjustments during stops. If someone is looking for a
capable shop for preparing their vehicles for this high-level
racing, you would be well served to give them a call.
If you have never been to the Daytona International
Speedway, it is a spectacular facility. I arrived Friday with the
Orbit drivers Joe Policastro, Johnny Mowlem and Jay Policastro

credentials that would allow me to park in the infield. There is a
tunnel that drops below the track level leading you to the infield.
As I drove upwards exiting the tunnel, I saw a beautiful blue sky
and a banner above me that read “Welcome to Daytona.” In my
book, seeing the Pearly Gates would give the same feeling.
As I made my way to the team's paddock spot, the pre-race
preparations were in high gear. Understanding my role in the
situation, I simply made a point to stay out of the way. This also
gave me the opportunity to watch the Grand Am Cup race,
walk around the paddock, and view various car displays and
The access that spectators have for this event is extremely
generous and down-right hazardous. Hordes of people walked
about engrossed in the sights and sounds as teams maneuvered
their rigs and carts weaving and dodging the spectators.
Boris Said takes a moment to pose with the author
Recognizing the dangers of the paddock, I decided to visit
the hospitality tent of the PCA Gold Crown Region. I was very
impressed with the friendliness of their group as I spoke with
Ruben, Janet and Wesley Ledesma and Bob and Dora Barren
among others. As friendly as they were, I could have sworn I was
in Texas. I told them that I can’t wait to show the a little
Dallas/Fort Worth hospitality in July for Parade! After some
time, I left the PCA tent and went back to check in with the Orbit
Team to confirm Saturday’s schedule.
The excitement of the day roused me at 7:00 am and I was
eager to get to the track. When I arrived, the team was already
hard at work fine tuning the car; which I don't think ever
stopped until it was time to hit the grid at 12:00 pm.
As the cars were being moved to grid, I took time along with
about 5000 other spectators to walk around the grid/pit lane, the
infield grass and up the high-bank wall. The grass is really that
green, the bank is really that HIGH and the excitement is greater
than I could have imagined. I managed to take photos of some
of the competitors and even a picture of Boris Said and myself.
(Even though he drives a BMW, it gave me hope that someone
my height can be a world class driver).
Since this was my first race, I wasn't really prepared for what
I was going to see. There was amazing speed, some spectacular
mishaps and some incredible drama.
Everyone pretty much knows that these cars are fast. But
what I didn’t know was that even in torrential rain, these cars are
still going upwards of 160 mph! Mike Fitzgerald was driving for
Orbit at the point the race was red flagged due to torrential
showers. He said that visibility was the equivalent of driving
with a fire hose shooting straight at the windshield. He
admittedly was relieved that the race was halted, as was the team,
since the car suffered a rear window failure only a few laps before
With regard to mishaps, the 17 hours of rain provided
enough of a catalyst for accidents and off-course excursions.
One exciting example was one The Racer’s Group car lost
traction as it crossed the start/finish line, directly in front of pit
lane. We had front row seats as this car was doing several 360’s
as it crossed the grass and slid right through turn 1. I seem to
recall it finished the race, albeit a few body panels lighter.
The drama on the other hand was almost enough to cause
finger nails to disappear to the bone. We had pretty much
relented places 1 and 2 overall to the DP cars of Bell Motor sports
# 2 and Howard-BOSS Motor sports # 54, but as a privateer GT
that was looking at an over-all podium finish and class win we
were busting! The rear window issue and our slight lead left our
team at the restart trying to calculate whether or not we had
enough distance to finish the race at the top of the GT class. The
Flying Lizard Team was charging hard and, given the additional
drag of running a virtual convertible, we were losing precious
seconds with each lap.
In a stroke of incredible luck, Tony Stewart’s car suffered a
suspension failure. Their team brought the car in with about a 6
lap lead to assess the damage and “jury-rig” a solution. They sent
the car back out to limp along in attempts to cling on to the lead,
which ultimately led to a complete failure that sent the car into
the wall. With less than 12 minutes left, the #54 DP, the Orbit,
Photo by Jack Ormberget
Crew members pose with the 2nd place overall and class GT trophies
and the Flying Lizard teams were set to knock the NASCAR team
off the podium entirely. (There is a God!)
The culmination of the drama found the Orbit team
finishing only a couple of laps behind the well-funded DP effort,
driven in part by Christian Fittipaldi, and only 6.5 seconds ahead
of the Flying Lizard team. (24 hours of GT class racing and a
Rolex decided by 6.5 seconds!)
It is hard to believe that the first time I ever made it to the
Daytona, I was part of a winning team. It is strange, but
somehow I always seem to have incredible luck and frequently
find myself in strange and memorable situations. I remember
when I first spoke to Rodger, I told him, “I didn't care if all I did
was go get lunch for the guys; I just wanted to be there and help
I would like to think that in some small way, I really did.

Fixing A Drip
by Joel Nannis
It all started out one fine morning when I went out to the
garage I notice the lovely smell of gas. I looked around and
found that it was coming from the fuel tank of my 1981 928.
Since I had to leave I placed a coffee can under the car to catch
the drips. When I returned later that day the drip had become
much worse and since we were leaving the next day on vacation
I pushed the car out onto the drive way. I figured it could drip
out on the concrete and evaporate. So, off on vacation we went.
The people who were taking care of our cats told us they had to
spread kitty litter down to absorb the gas. So now, not only did I
have a large stain on the driveway, I also had to clean up kitty
litter. After the clean up I started to attack the problem.
I removed the cover that protects the bottom of the tank and
holds the fuel pump and filter. I was now able to see that there is
a filter in the tank. This filter is in the lowest position and feeds
directly into the in-line fuel filter. There is a nut at the end of the
nipple so that you can unscrew the filter and replace it. I found
... So now, not only did I have a large stain on the
driveway, I also had to clean up kitty litter ...
the correct deep socket and started to turn the filter in order to
remove it. It finally broke loose and came out. I didn't think too
much about how it looked and instead of throwing it in the trash
I kept it. Going over to Park Place, Randall looked up the filter
and ordered one for me. It arrived a few days later. When I picked
it up I though it looked different from the one I had removed.
When I arrived home I found the filter and indeed there was a
difference. The one I had removed had a knurled metal tube
around the outside of the filter. It took me a while to realize that
the knurled metal tube was what the filter was to screw into in
the tank. I was able to remove the knurled tube from the filter by
holding the tube with a pair of channel locks and then ratching
the filter loose. It was then that I realized that the knurled tube
was molded into the tank and was not ever to be removed. The
knurled tube has internal threads that the filter screws into. I
then tried to put the knurled tube back in the tank only to find
out that there is a lip that prevents it from coming out. The filter
has a gasket that presses against the lip and that is how the
filter is sealed to the tank. What to do, what to do?
Take the tank out and try to figure out where to go from
there. Aha! Call Kim Crumb (PCA's 928 technical representative).
He had never heard of this problem. He also told me that the
type of plastic that the tank is molded out of prevents any type
of epoxy from sticking to it. Talk to lots of people. Again no one
could help. Many people suggested using epoxy but I had to rule
The infamous "knurled tube".

that solution out. How about a new tank? $850 is too much
money. What about a used tank ($450)? There is no guarantee
that I wouldn't have a similar problem and it turns out that the
tanks are different between years.
How about thinking? That might work. Removing the tank
level tube from the top of the tank gave me access to the tank.
Oops, one major problem my hand is too big to fit into the tank.
I thought if I could put the knurled tube in from the inside of the
tank I would be able to pull it back in place. Sounds easy. So I
took the tank with me to the clubs Father's Day picnic where
Aubrey Sutton was able to be like rubber girl and get the knurled
tube started in place.
This is where the knurled tube should have stayed in the first place,
When we arrived home I put a 6" butterfly bolt through the
tube. I placed a washer and nut on the end and started to tighten.
Almost home... wrong! The butterfly bolt did not provide
pressure evenly and it would not pull in straight. Back to the
Next I welded a washer that was just a little bigger than the
outside diameter of the knurled tube to a 3/4" bolt 6" long. The
washer couldn't be too much larger than the tube because the
tube fits into a tube in the tank. Once again I searched for
someone to put the tube in the tank and they put the bolt in
through the tank. I, again, put on the washer over the bolt
and started to tighten down on a nut. Little by little the bolt
started to move toward me indicating the tube was being pulled
in place. After several inspections the knurled tube was in place.
Hip hip hurray!
The knurling on the tube is there to prevent the tube from
turning when the filter is tightened. In addition the tube has
three small holes in the rear so that when the tube is molded into
the tank a small amount of plastic goes through the holes to also
help hold it in place.
Now comes the final test-putting in gas to see if it works. So
I start pouring in gas. One small problem, I needed to put the filter
into the tube. So after cleaning off the lip surface and the
puddle on the garage floor I tighten the filter into the knurled
tube. It seems tight and I could feel that the knurled tube did not
move. Now let's add gas again. Yes, it flows out the nipple. So
now I put a hose on the nipple and bring the other end of the
hose over the top of the tank. After cleaning up the garage floor
again I added gas one more time. It works. Now comes the easy
part putting the tank back in place. This only takes about 2 beers.
For anyone who has a 928 I strongly suggest that if you
haven't changed this in tank filter that you do so. Make sure if the
knurled tube starts to pull through that you break it loose before
it comes out. None of this would have been a problem if I knew
enough about this so I could have tapped the tube back in place.

Trust's inception date is 4/16/82. The investment return and principal
value of the fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares,
when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.
Calculations assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains
distributions. Performance would have been lower if fees had not
been waived in various periods. The S&P 500 index is based on
common stock prices, including reinvestment of dividends and
capital gains distributions, and is generally considered representative
of the U.S. stock market. Source: Lipper Inc.
