The Inside Track

by Rocky Johnson, Maverick Region President

Well gang, it won't be long now.

Based on all the conversations I

overheard, at both the Holiday

Party and the New Members Party, a lot of

people, including me, are really looking

forward to getting back behind the wheel of

their favorite “P” car. In fact, by the time

you read this, the 2005 driving season will

be underway. The first autocross school kicks off in

February and is a great start for both newcomers to the

sport and experienced drivers, as well. The “old hands” get

to freshen up their skills as instructors and the newcomers

have the opportunity for some fun, informative seat time

with knowledgeable, one-on-one instruction. If you have

ever given any thought to really learning what you and

your car are capable of, I highly recommend this as a

starting point.

... Driving in the wet is a good

learning experience. ...

February also is the starting point for the year’s

Driver Education program, with the Lone Star Region event

at Texas World Speedway on the 12th and 13th and the

Maverick DE at Motorsport Ranch on the 26th and 27th of

the month. Some people shy away from these early events

because of the uncertainty of the weather. I urge you not to

let that hold you back. Driving in the wet is a good learning

experience. It requires a lot of emphasis on car control and

smoothness, that will pay big dividends down the line.

Driving in the rain is also a fun equalizer between the big

horsepower beasts and smaller displacement cars.

Hats off to Eric Erz, the chair for our Tech Sessions,

for organizing a Dyno Day in February. This should prove

to be informative for all those involved. No doubt some

participants will be pleased with the results and others

dismayed. At a minimum, it will lead to some spirited

discussions. By the way, if you have ideas for a Tech Session

or would like to volunteer your car as a guinea pig, don't

hesitate to contact Eric.

March marks what, for many of us, will be the start

of the Club Racing season with the Lone Star Region Race

at TWS in College Station. The number of Maverick club

racers, which is already significant, continues to expand. It

looks like Colin Graidage, Chuck Machala and Mark Steele

are preparing to join the fray. (There may well be others and

I apologize for any unintentional omissions).

In addition to continuing the Autocross and Time Trial

schools, March also brings us the first of several Photo

Rallies and scenic Tours of Texas and surrounding states.

Also, in the spirit of “One man's/woman's trash is another

man's/woman's treasure”, the first swap meet of the year is

in March. This is an ideal opportunity to clear out some of

those valuable “antique” auto parts you have been hoarding

for so long. Of course, the real challenge is to leave with

less than you started with, because there is always lots of

good “stuff” available for purchase or trade.

The observant reader will notice that no mention is

made of any yearly kickoff of a Concours. The reason

being, so far, no one has shown an interest in chairing the

Concours Committee position. If some, as yet unidentified,

individual would like to revitalize what in recent years has

been a dormant program, all they need to do is give me a

call.

So there you have it; a quick rundown of what looks like

a fantastic start to the 2005 Maverick driving year. I can't

wait to get rolling. We have a solid core of participants in

all of our events.

However, in an effort to promote a little cross-pollination,

I encourage you to try something new this year.

Wendy Shoffit and Steve Boyd have created a full year calendar,

in printable PDF form, on our website. Be sure to

print a copy, so you will know what's going on all year. If

appropriate, print two, so your significant other will not

accidentally schedule something silly (like a wedding, for

example) on a key driving date.

Maverick Minutes

by Michael Wingfield

Ruf Auto Center Dallas hosted the January

2005 Maverick Region Board meeting on

January 3, 2005. Thanks to Hans Hoffmann

and Wayne Corley for staying late and putting up

with 18 additional Mavericks as we brought in the

New Year.

For 2005, the region will hold the monthly

board meeting on the first Monday of the month with two exceptions.

The region will hold the July 2005, and September 2005

board meeting on the first Tuesday of the respective months. The

January meeting had the following 20 members in

attendance:Executive Council: Rocky Johnson, Mark Gluck, Jeff

Atkins, Michael Wingfield; Board Members: Mike Brodigan,

Chuck Machala, Bill Dawson, Lanean Hughes, Mike Holloway,

Joe McGlohen, Bill Miller, Joel Nannis, Andy Miller, Dennis

Chamberlain, Wendy Shoffit; Membership: Bob Knight, Noby

Takahashi, Albert Sansores, Hans Hoffman, and Wayne Corley.

Rocky Johnson: called the meeting to order at 6:55 PM,

and began a “round table” format. Anyone present could present

a report or issue to the Board for discussion. Mike Brodigan:

Slipstream ads are current with the exception of one advertiser.

He will contact the merchant one more time for payment before

the end of the month. Otherwise, he may pull the ad from

Slipstream. He has a waiting list of other advertisers should he

have to pull the ad for non-payment. Bob Knight: Transfer of all

Treasurer items complete to Jeff Atkins. The region completed

and passed the IRS audit. The transfer of the region bank

accounts from Bank of America to J.P. Morgan has almost completed.

Outstanding checks prevent the closing of the Bank of

America account. Once those checks clear, the region can close

the account.

Chuck Machala: AutoScope will open from 5-7:00 PM on

2/26 and 3/2 to tech cars in support of the AX schools. Bill Miller

will set up AX tech with Mayo Performance. AX school registration

will only appear online at the Maverick web site

(http://www.pca.org/mav/). This year, the region will limit the

number of attendees to the AX schools to 26 and 28 for the

February and March events respectively. He would like to have a

copy of the AX tech form available on the Maverick web site.

Wendy Shoffit: On behalf of Teri Davis: Teri plans to investigate

the possibility of a summer Round Up, possibly hosted in

Granbury. The region can receive a National subsidy for holding

the multi-event weekend. The board expresses interest in a ’05

Round Up, provided the event has economical accommodations.

Joe McGlohen and Rocky Johnson suggest “economical “ means

the maximum host location charge should not exceed $70 per

day. Wendy Shoffit: On behalf of Jan Mayo: The region has

approximately 60 garment bags left over from Parade ’04.

Proposed dispositions of the bags include donating to Hope

Shelter, selling at events, and selling through the Goodie Store.

Per Lanean, Hope Shelter received 12 garment bags from Parade.

The bags will appear at the New Members’ party for sale at $15

each (a bargain price!). All proceeds from the sales will go directly

to the Hope Shelter.

Wendy Shoffit: Her Girl Scout troop will sell cookies beginning

Friday (1/7) this year to benefit Hope Shelter. Bill Dawson:

February DE registration opens Thursday (1/6). He will finalize

the contract this month with Motorsport Ranch for the four DE

events in ’05. Lanean added that Ruf Auto Center would sponsor

the February DE, and that Mr. Ruf himself will attend.

Lanean Hughes: She has talked with Steve Boyd, the

Maverick Region Webmaster, to get the ’05 information updated.

Hope Shelter held a groundbreaking ceremony on December 19,

2004, for the new building. She will serve as Club Race chair again

this year. Ben Witry Bank of Source Mortgage, will sponsor the

New Members’ Party on 1/16. However, the region will still need

to pay for the tables and chairs. She would like to step down from

the Hospitality chair position. The person filling the Hospitality

Chair vacancy will need to find locations for Founder’s Day and

the Holiday party, as well as coordinate food for each event.

Mark Gluck: Has received transfer of VP responsibilities

from Noby. He will have insurance in place three weeks before

events as necessary. Mike Holloway: Set the 18th of the month as

the Slipstream deadline for article submission for publication in

the following month. He has worked with Matt and Wendy to

slate the regularly appearing articles. Requests that photo submissions

have at least 300 dpi resolution and will buy a beer for

anyone who reads his silly articles and admits to it.

Joe McGlohen: Reminded the Board that at the December,

2004 meeting, the Board approved $800 dollars for the AX

Committee to purchase radios. He located Motorola 7100 series

radios for $75 per pair of radios, and invites the AX Committee

to investigate the purchase of these radios. He will add a “Beer”

flag to the standard flag set used for DE events, motivated by the

Patti Mascone article appearing in the December 2004, issue of

Panorama. Bill Miller: He needs payment from the Treasurer to

secure the AX event dates and locations.

Albert Sansores: He would like to see the region present more

Tech Sessions. The Board directed him to contact Eric Erz, who has

taken on the responsibility for Tech Sessions this year. Joel Nannis:

He still has problems getting a membership list from National.

Andy Miller: He has taken over Tours this year, and will submit

Slipstream articles to Mike H. Dennis Chamberlain: Saltgrass

Steak House will host the January Happy Hour. February location

not yet set. He will create event ads for Slipstream this year, and

needs event info. Reminds everyone that the Maverick web site

now has a “Photo of the Week”, and he would like to encourage

membership participation in submitting photos.

Rocky Johnson: Reiterates that the 2005 Board will meet the

first Monday of each month with two exceptions. The exceptions

include July 2005, and September 2005, when the Board will meet

on the first Tuesday of the respective months. The Jaguar Club has

invited Maverick region to co-host a Concour's d'Elegance. Board

unanimous consensus to not co-host the event. However, the

region will notify the membership of the event and allow

individual members to participate in the Jaguar hosted event.

Park Place Porsche will host the next Board meeting on Monday,

February 7, 2005. The January meeting adjourned at 8:30 PM.

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, Monda

Degan and Mike Lockas

The December 16th happy hour at the

Spaghetti Warehouse in Plano was sandwiched

between the Maverick Region

Holiday Party on December 12 and, of course,

Christmas. Nevertheless, a determined group

of twenty-eight Maverick partiers braved the

Christmas traffic to venture out in the cold and

the astonishing traffic.

New members included Mark Ellen

(2004 Boxster S), and Mary and Jim Caton

(2002 Boxster).

Passion and Performance

by Mike Holloway, Slipstream Managing Editor

Porsche owners typically have a

unique outlook on life. Often, they

are people who demonstrate both

performance and passion, achieving high

levels of excellence through their unique

outlook, internal motivation, life

experiences and personal philosophy.

The Porsche Club of America has been a

great place to meet new and interesting

people. Slipstream’s Passion and Performance segment

offers a chance to do just that. Please meet Aimee Mullins.

Aimee Mullins is a close family friend. She was born

without the fibulae in both her legs. During her first year,

her parents made the difficult decision to have her legs

amputated just below the knee. Aimee grew up wearing

prosthetic wooden legs. She excelled in academics and

athletics such as swimming and softball. She was granted a

full academic scholarship to Georgetown University where

she studied international diplomacy and foreign relations.

While at Georgetown, she worked at the Pentagon (Defense

Dept.) for Colin Powell. In her sophomore year, Aimee

heard about a track meet in Boston for amputees. Without

any formal training in track and field, Aimee entered the

100 and 200 meter dashes and the long jump. That meet,

she set US records in the 100 and long jump. Back at

Georgetown with Gold around her neck, she decided

to contact the Georgetown University track coach (the

legendary Frank Gagliano) for

a try out. Georgetown

University is a division 1 school

which offers full athletic scholarships.

After three months of

private training with him, she

earned a spot on the team.

After Aimee made the team, laterthat

season she qualified

to run in the Big East

Championship track meet.

Aimee demonstrates many

talents including helping to

10

Aimee Mullins

design the carbon fiber artificial

limbs she runs with. Aimee

graduated from Georgetown Summa Cum Laude. She has

become an accomplished actor and runway model and has

been ranked People's magazine top 50 most beautiful

people for several years.

MH: I remember once you told me that when you were

16, your first driving experience was in a Porsche 911

Carrera with a Tiptronic transmission on an airport

runway?

AM: It was actually my first experience driving a

manual transmission, and it was the car of a friend who

shared my love of flying. We went out to a small, familiar

airport runway and I practiced driving stick shift all around

Photo Curtesy of Aimee Mullins

the runway. It was an entirely different driving experience

in that I felt truly in control of the car: I felt as though I

were part of it. It was exhilarating and that night I feel in

love with Porsche and its design.

MH: The Tiptronic was essentially designed to give the

driver the control of a standard transmission without the

leg strain of having to press the clutch. Aimee, what was

your impression of the car?

AM: It was incredibly freeing for me to drive this way –

feeling that I was really driving the car rather than the

detachment that accompanies an automatic transmission. I

appreciate the feeling of having a manual transmission

without the physical problem of me having to press down a

clutch. Since I don’t have ankles on either side, I use

my entire leg to press down and release pressure on the

pedals by lifting my thigh muscle. This situation makes a

traditional clutch problematic, whereas the Tiptronic

allows me the sensation of connecting with the car through

the gear changes without both thighs having to work. In a

word, it is thrilling.

MH: Porsche seems to do a great job of blending

passion and performance. That combination reminds me

of you. What can you say about that?

Big East Track Meet

AM: What’s to say? It’s the winning combination for

any person or any company. It’s what makes something go

beyond just being “good” to becoming iconic, standing the

test of time and having the relevance of being trailblazers

for each coming generation.

Here are a few of Aimee’s awards and accomplishments: Lead actress

in the A&E Agatha Christie’s Poirot drama series, named to HBO’s

list of “Up and Coming” actors, named to Rolling Stone Magazine’s

annual “Hot List”, featured in the Track and Field Hall of Fame,

named as one of Sports Illustrated’s 2001 “Coolest Girls In Sports,

named “The 50 Most Beautiful People in the World” by People

Magazine.

Needs More Cowbell...

by Mike Holloway, Slipstream Managing Editor

Sometimes if you are going to play the part,

you have to talk the part. Anyone wanting

to get into autocross (AX), track racing and

even rallies should know some of the common

(and not-so-common) jargon, slang words and

phrases. I got together with a bunch of friends

and here are a few we came up with. These are

the things they don’t teach you in DE.

Adding Perspective: Making the things in the mirror look smaller.

Back Marker: Lapped traffic.

Balled Up: The condition of a car after a major off and contact with something

solid.

Bench Racing: Discussing what an awesome driver you are after the race /

event is over.

Big Moment: See “Tank Slapper”

Boy Racer: The guy that shoes up to DE with every imaginable racing item

and only does DE's.

Brain Fade: Stupid mistake by driver usually occurs in corners or when

attempting to out brake someone in a higher class.

Brown Out: What happens during a scary "Off" or "Tank Slapper".

Bus Stop: A Chicane built into the track in order to slow down the pace at

that section of the track. (aka "The Inner Loop" at Watkins Glen)

Cayenneing or Farming: An off track excursion.

Clag or Klag or Pick-up: Refers everything that sticks to the hot race tires,

mostly rubber from off line.

Collect: Hit another car. For example: the guy spun out and stopped in the

middle of the track just waiting for someone to collect him.

Cornering on its Door-Handles: The car has lots of body roll, lean.

Crossed Up: Usually the direct result of a severe "tank slapper".

Dialed In or Sorted: Refers to optimum chassis or engine setup.

Dicing: Fighting for track position with another competitor.

Earlied: Took the early-apex line through a corner.

Early Apex: When the car is nearest the inside of a turn earlier on in the turn.

Floor Pedal: Either when you go to hit the brake and it goes to the floor

(see pucker factor) or when your instructor or passenger makes braking

motions in the passenger seat.

Freight Train: Line of cars in single file.

Groove: The clean line that provides the fastest way around the circuit. The

groove can change during the course of a race depending on track conditions,

e.g., heat, cold, moisture, etc., as well as oil, water and rubber from the

race cars.

Hole-shot: A good start.

Hooked Up: Means: Having good traction.

Hunan: Sound heard when a Porsche passes by on the track. You have to add

the Doppler sound effect Huuuuuuunaaaaaaaann!

Hustling the Car: A driver's ability to push the race car to the limit, even if it is not

handling well. A critical factor in determining that winning edge. Winning drivers

adjust and adapt better to overcome mechanical or weather related problems.

Invisible Flag: The blue (you are about to be passed) flag.

Jesus Handle: If you are carrying a passenger this part of the car will help to

indicate how hard you were driving. It is so named this because this is usually

who the passenger screams for to save them from a particularly late braking

corner entry.

Keep it Between the Grass: Stay on the asphalt, don't fly off the track.

Keep the Shiny Side Up: Be safe, don't flip your car.

Landscaper: A car that early apexes.

Late Apex: When the car is nearest the inside of a turn later on in the turn.

Late Brake: Passing in the braking zone.

Leaning On: (see "NASCAR pass")

Line: Simply the quickest way around a race circuit. To run the fastest racing

line, a driver must take advantage of all of his abilities as well as that of the

race car, taking advantage of a racer's braking, cornering and acceleration

techniques.

Loose: Going off the road backwards.

Marbles: Small bits of rubber that have broken off tires during a race.

'Marbles' are usually found in the corners of American Le Mans Series road

racing circuits, often gathering on the outside of the racing line.

Meatball Flag: (Black flag with Red dot in the middle): mechanical problem

with your car.

Momentum Car: A low hp car.

NASCAR Pass: Bumping another car while passing them; or bumping them

to allow you to get past them. Sometimes shortened to "NASCAR'ed".

Needs More Cowbell: Often heard in the pits. No one really understands

what it means, but it sounds cool.

Opposite Lock: Making a left hand turn but yet turning the steering wheel full

right.

PEBSAS Issue: A bad driver. (Problem Exists Between Seat and Steering

wheel).

Pit Tootsie: Scantily dressed women in the pits.

Pucker Factor: Just how scary something was. ("That one had a pretty high

pucker factor, there!")

Pull a Monty: Anyone who pulls a Montoya like suicide move.

Push / Plow or The Car's Tight: Under-steer.

Push: Going off the road front-end first.

Ran Away And Hid: built up a huge lead.

Red Mist: Anger that makes you do stupid things

Roll: As in 4 wheel drift not roll-over .

Rolling Chicane: Stupid back marker.

Sideways: Significant over-steering.

Slingshot: Drafting for a pass.

Shunt: Smacking a wall with your car.

Tail-out: (see "Sideways")

Tank Slapper: (from bikes, only slang for cars) waggling the tail back and

forth uncontrollably.

Throttle Steer: Turning the car by the amount of gas you give it.

Unplanned Agricultural Excursion: Going off course.

Wall Tats: Short for wall tattoos where a car has hit the wall and leaves a mark.

Zen Thing: You know it when it happens, words can’t explain it.

Goodyear Eagle 25th Anniversary

By Joel Nannis

In December Lanean informed me that Goodyear was looking

for cars for a dealer conference. The process for selection was

to submit a picture of your car between the years of 1981 and

2005. I submitted my 1981 928. In January I received notification

that my car was one of 25 cars out of 104 entries that had been

selected. As an incentive for showing the car I received a set of

new Goodyear Eagles. The show was at the Gaylord Hotel in

Grapvine. I had the tires mounted, polished the car and was off to

the show.

We had to have the cars at the Gaylord at 10AM on January

30. There were a few requirements in order to bring the cars

into the hall. You had to have less than a quarter of a tank of gas

and once inside, the positive terminal needed to be disconnected

and the gas cap had to be secured. These requirements were

sent several times. Unfortunately, the car in front of me had just

filled up with 24 gallons and was not allowed into the show. The

cars were led into the hall and placed in no particular order.

The fire marshall inspected the cars around noon and we

were free until 6PM when the show started. In addition, they

provided a room at the Gaylord for anyone showing their car

who wanted to stay the night. I showed back up around 6 in the

Goodyear racing shirt that was also provided. We had no particular

function to perform. Many of us stayed around our cars

to answer any questions. There was a box in front of each car so

the people could vote for the car they liked the best.

Goodyear provided a tremendous spread of free food and

drink. I found out that 1800 people were attending the conference.

As I was wandering around, several NASCAR drivers were

led in to sign autographs. They were Bill Elliott (my favorite

driver), Rusty Wallace, and Ricky Rudd. I had them sign the

shirt that Goodyear provide and will put it under glass. In addition,

they had 6 fabulous impersonators. Dolly Parton was one

of them and did she look good!

Later they were giving out awards to the dealers and they

brought in Richard Petty and Darrell Waltrip. Unfortunately,

they were led out as quickly as they were led in. No chance to

get their autographs. The show included all sorts of items that

the dealers could sell like rims and tire changers as well as many

items from vendors for the dealers to improve their bottom

line.

The show ended around 10:30, so I loaded up the car and

then enjoyed my beautiful and spacious room. An e-mail came

the next week saying that the top voted was a 2003 Chevrolet

SSR that had the engine chromed and had digital read outs in

the dash and rear license plate. It also had LED’s along the

inside of the hood, interior, door handles, etc. The owner, Tom

Snodgrass (not ours), received an all expense paid trip to the

Brickyard 400. The next two highest voted for cars received paid

trips to Bob Bondurant Driving school for 2 and seven others

received another set of tires. Goodyear really went all out for

this show! What an honor it was to be part of it. Thanks,

Goodyear!

Early 911 Restoration: No. 6

by Charles Freeman

Some of you have asked former editor, Matt Platts, if you

can contact me and I welcome the opportunity to discuss

my project with you. Just get with Matt as he has my

contact information.

Well, things are now starting to look a little better for me. The

car is starting to be reassembled! I finally got the floorpan welded in

and am quite pleased with the quality of the welding. My father and

brother are welding inspectors and their impression of the weld

quality was favorable. Of course I did the typical amateur welder job

of probably welding too much. After I used the rosette welds (making

a mushroom-like puddle in the middle of the drilled out spot weld) I

put a continuous bead of weld around the entire car. I figured better

safe than sorry. However, I did employ a technique called

“stitch-welding”. This is where you weld a little line, say 2 inches, then

skip 6 inches forward, then weld 2, and so on. Again this is to prevent

too much heat build up in the sheet metal. I will say that when I

stopped welding sometimes I could hear the metal popping because

of heat distortion. After seeing the bare insides of the car I was almost

shocked to find the small amount of metal that keeps my backside

from touching the road!

So, the floorpan is in place but I do have a small gap where the

steering rack goes. To make a secure connection, I bought some 20

gauge sheet metal to overlap the old and new sections of floorpan.

There are a lot of bends and angles in this location, so I decided to

patch the gap with many small pieces about 4 inches square. I had to

hand form every inch of the piece because of the multiple

compound angles and curves. This was very challenging and

rewarding at the same time. All I had to work with was a small body

hammer and the anvil on my 5 inch bench vise. I had to be very

creative as to how I was going to form the sheet metal. Every piece

took at least an hour to form. I had to shape it, lie on my back to check

it, re-shape, lie on my back, re-shape, etc. I took my time with this

process because I knew I needed intimate contact between the metal

to get a good weld. When I had a piece ready, I tack-welded it in place.

That is very challenging because you can’t really get the MIG weld gun

in the tight confines of this area. I had to be a little creative to make

this work. Also, since I am upside down all of the sparks will drop

down on me. I got a few nice burns from this task. I could have

invested in a nice leather welder’s jacket, but I am just too cheap.

With the floorpan done I needed to think about how to protect

20

the metal from rust. I had decided very early on to use POR15 as a

preventative undercoat. This works differently than most other rust

inhibitors I have seen. It works by forming a barrier for rust to travel.

Most other inhibitors undergo a chemical reaction to convert the

iron oxide to a more stable form. The product information for the

POR15 says it is very tough and impact resistant. Therefore, I

decided to use it on the floorpan, trunk, wheel wells, and engine bay.

I had to remove the undercoating from these areas using a propane

torch, spatula, and wire wheel. It is very difficult to get into the inner

rear fender area but I felt it was important to verify that there was no

rust hidden deep in the structure. I also wanted to make sure that I

would seal it with the POR15 which adheres best to “seasoned” metal.

Once the undercoating was removed I lightly sanded the metal to

provide good adhesion. I prepared the metal surface as instructed by the

manufacturer and was ready to apply the paint. POR15 is a watery thin

liquid that the manufacturer recommends applying with a paint brush.

It can be sprayed but must be thinned to apply correctly. Using paint

brushes was cheaper and didn’t require me to buy a spray gun.

The instructions recommend wearing gloves as once the paint

has dried it cannot be removed from skin until the skin is shed by

natural processes. I also used a respirator for organic solvents. So

after using a tack rag to verify that the car was perfectly clean, I mixed

up some of the paint and began to apply it to the bottom of the car. I

soon realized that the paint was so thin that it would run down the

paint brush, over my gloves and right down my sleeve. I was extra

careful to not lie under where I was painting at that point and to stay

away from areas already painted. Since the paint is thin, it would

run and drip off of the car so there are a lot of little puddles on my

garage floor.

After I completed painting the floorpan I took off the

respirator and almost passed out from the fumes in my garage (the

garage door was open!). Man, that is powerful stuff. Well, by the time

I finished painting the underside of the car, the paint had dried on my

arm. I tried to remove it by pouring thinner on my skin, no luck.

Then I tried brake cleaner, no luck. This stuff sticks to your skin just

like the manufacturer says. By the way, being an old chemist, it was

common for us to clean our hands in what is now considered to be

carcinogenic. So, unless you want to shorten your life, don’t pour

chemicals on your body! It took about 3 weeks to come off my arm

(my co-workers quietly wondered what disease I had since I had these

large black spots on me).


At a later date I painted the front and rear inner fender

area, the engine bay, and the interior of the car. If you’re counting,

this took 4 quart size cans at $32 each. The manufacturer recommends

that two coats be applied. In order to fill some small holes

around the car I bought some POR epoxy. This is a two-part epoxy

that is activated by water. I used this material to smooth out the

rough weld joints and any small holes. After this I would apply the

second POR15 coat. Because it had been 2 months since I applied

the first coat of POR I had to scuff sand the first coat to give the

second one something to “bite” to. I used some 180 grit sandpaper I

had lying around to scuff all the areas then applied the final coat

of POR15. This only took 2 quart size cans (I did not paint the

passenger compartment with a second coat).

The POR15 is available in clear, silver, flat, or gloss black. I tried

both the flat and gloss black. I prefer the shine of the gloss black.

However, it is tough to tell where I painted previously. My recommendation

would be to use the flat black, then put a coat of gloss so

that you can tell where it has been painted. The paint does not leave

a perfect finish as it has some runs and experiences solvent pop

(evaporation of solvent under the hardened outer surface resulting

in a small bubble that has popped). It is my plan to leave the inner

fenders, trunk, and engine bay with the gloss black paint. It is my

understanding that the very early 911s had black inner fender wells

up until about 1972.

I kind of like this look as it gives a nice contrast to the red

paint I plan on using. Additionally, some owners I have discussed

this with say that when fender wells get dirty the black is more

difficult to tell versus the color matched.

New Member Party

by Jean Frick

Dave and I were excited to be going to the New

Member Party. After all, we attended our first New

Member Party back in 2003 BEFORE the February

delivery of Dave’s new Boxster. He only had the VIN

number, but had already joined PCA, and we were anxious

to meet other Porsche owners. We were welcomed by the

great folks in the Maverick Region and learned about the

many activities available to us.

So here we came, ready to meet new members and share

the love of cars with them. We were pleased to have such a

good turnout, but after all, the weather was BEAUTIFUL

…who wouldn’t want to be out on a day like that?

I was enjoying this conversation immensely and noticed

that Dave was still visiting with Michael, the red 356 owner –

so motioned for them to come on over. We introduced Jack

and Michael, and they shook hands and then studied each

other a bit…seemed like they had met before, but thought it

was probably at a 356 meeting.

Monda Degan - Always the Smile!

Early on we met Michael Epping, a nice young fellow

who has a red 356. Since Dave had a 356 in college at Penn

State, they enjoyed a brief discussion. Meanwhile, I came up

to someone I had not seen before…but looking at his

nametag, I immediately recognized the name. I had seen

messages from Jack Griffin on the Maverick discussion

group frequently. He spends a lot of time with other Porsche

groups – the 356 Club, 914 Club, and 912 Club. He is very

interested in vintage rallies and tours. He doesn’t attend

many Mav events, but had come that day, in his black 356.

This went on, then suddenly it clicked – they had raced

on the same team 15 years ago. Back then there was an

indoor Go Cart track out on White Settlement called the

Indoor Grand Prix. They held endurance races with 5 on a

team, going 250 laps. Jack drove there often, and one night

his team was short a driver. You can guess the rest…Michael

Epping was there as a single driver in a team set-up. As he

stood around Jack asked him to fill in on his team. They

continued to drive together for 2 or 3 months, then Michael

left Texas for about 12 years. He moved back a couple of

years ago, now lives in Keller, and had come to the New

Member party to find other 356 owners.

Imagine standing there as they put it all together.

Whatever your favorite car is, this time it was the 356 that

brought them back together. Just another example of what

can happen at our Mav events…expect the unexpected.
