year, we’re proud to have earned all three of our

manufacturers’ highest awards for delivering the finest

possible customer satisfaction to our customers. Which

proves the measure of a fine dealership isn’t which

Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

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:

1) Autoweek

2) Panorama

3) Excellence

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

next month.

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Editor

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

Maverick Minutes

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

to eat!

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

backyard?

Photo by Bob Bianconi

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

called "Full."

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

Bass Hall.

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,

spectacular!

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.

... in desperate need of real food, a

shower, and a chiropractor ...

A very unique “polizei” car

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

time.

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

souvenir tents.

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

22


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

the stoppage.

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

them win.”

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

thinking board.

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.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Value

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.
