No doubt, there were more qualified

people that could have held the

office, but here I am, the new

President of the Maverick Region of the PCA.

Looking back, it doesn't seem that long ago

when it all started, when I first became a

Maverick. While I have owned a wide variety

of sports cars over the years, Austin Healy,

Jaguar, several Triumphs, I always wanted a

Porsche. Finally, in May of '98, I ordered one. After a seemingly

endless wait, in Oct. of '98, I was the proud owner of a

Silver '99 Boxster. That was all I would ever need. After a lot

of help from patient Autocross, Time Trial, and Drivers

Education instructors (too many good ones to mention them

all) I was starting to feel like I (almost) knew what I was

doing. At least, I usually wasn't the slowest one out there.

Then the Boxster S came out - bigger engine, better

brakes, improved suspension. I really "needed" one of those;

in fact, it would be all I would ever need. More help from

... I was the proud owner of a Silver '99

Boxster. That was all I would ever need. ...

more talented instructors and I was starting to go a little

faster. If only I had "R" compound tires, I could really go fast.

Of course, that requires an extra set of wheels, preferably

lightweight, and, ideally, a little trailer to get them to and

from the track. I recall several of us put hitches on our

Boxsters in my garage. Now I was set; that was all I would

ever need.

By now, I was moving up to the faster run groups at DE's

and, on occasion, turning a really respectable time at an AX

or TT. The Boxster S was a daily driver, so there were limits

to what I could comfortably do to the suspension, seats, harnesses,

etc. If only I had a dedicated track car. That would be

all I would ever need. That's when the white 968 came into

the picture. When I first got the 968, I used the same small

tire trailer I built for the Boxster S. Then I started dreaming

of a "real" trailer to haul the 968; that would be all I would

ever need. So I bought the trailer our esteemed editor had

made for his trip to Parade in Florida. It towed great, but was

a little heavy for my tow vehicle. So I obtained a lighter tiltback

trailer with an aluminum deck. By the second trailer, it

became obvious, I needed a tire rack and tool box built for

the trailer, since club racing seems to require lots more

"stuff ". By now, you know, that would be all I would ever

need.

However, since I am in the early stages of exploring a different

tow vehicle, I have been counseled by several fellow

racers to buy one with plenty of towing capacity, just in case

the perfect enclosed trailer becomes available or a different

race car enters the picture. If that happened, it would, for

sure, be all I would ever need. At any rate, that's the semicondensed

version of my Maverick timeline to date. Time

sure flies when you’re having fun.

Since our Presidential campaign was less hotly contested

than the one with George and John, I didn't have to go out on

a limb with a lot of wild promises. That should make life a little

easier. I realize it will be difficult to improve on the great

job Keith and others before him have done, so I will have the

more modest goal of trying not to take too many steps backward.

Since I have been in the club, we have always done a

very good job of recognizing our AX and TT participants,

both in Slipstream and at Founders Day. I would like to see

us do the same good job regarding our Club Racers and DE

participants and instructors. Hopefully, those involved in

these events will support this effort with pictures and articles

for Slipstream. If I should drop the ball or overlook important

areas, I know I can count on you all to bring it to my

attention. I look forward to 2005 and I hope you do as well.

We should be back behind the wheel before we know it. I

know I'll be ready…

Word on the Street

by Mike Holloway, Managing Editor

I

asked

few guys I know from other parts of the

country what they thought of their PCA chapters.

Here is what they had to say.

“Many PCA chapters have plenty of DE events

and Club Races. Some like my region are too small to

throw large events so they focus on eating, drinking

and showing off cars.” S - Central Plains.

“The Chicago Region has a very active chapter

with events nearly every weekend. HPDE 1-2 per

month, Rally's, AX, and socials fill all free time if you

want to. The chapter's monthly mag? Ugh. I'm SO

tired of seeing the same 15 people in the magazine.”

C - Naperville, IL

“Here in Fla the PCA is a great way to meet great

people and there are enough events, DE and autocross

to keep folks busy most months of the year. For the

annual fee it's hard to beat.” D - South Florida

“Mostly wine and cheezers showing off their prize

cars. Few are involved in AX and more into Concours.

I would much rather race than show. The regional

mag is good enough. The ads and classifieds always

help.” M -San D CA

Involvement is the key - the more you do the

better it gets. If racing isn’t for you, prehaps showing

your Porsche would be fun. The Maverick chapter is

also a great place to get involved in civic projects. If

you have a passion for writing, contact Slipstream. We

are alwasys looking for interesting articles to publish.

Holiday Times in Mineral Wells

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

by Lanean Hughes

On a beautiful, sunny, Texas Sunday, December 19, 2004,

a group of excited Maverick members were in Mineral

Wells to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony for

the new Hope Shelter. With the assistance of the Hope board

members, staff members and administrator, Lisa Huffaker, we

“lifted the dirt” at the new site. After a few brief introductions,

Reverend Bumpus of the First Baptist Church lead a prayer to

bless the land. It’s a dream becoming a reality. Following the

ceremony we all then had Holiday sharing with the staff and

clients from the shelter. The toys and stuffed animals that PCA

members donated at the holiday party were given good homes

and will be loved. Everyone enjoyed the great event. Helping

those less fortunate is what WE

are all about. We “Hope” that all

the Maverick members will make

a New Year 2005 commitment to

our new project. Please help us

secure the building materials

needed for this shelter. We will

continue to take donations

throughout the year. This is

Maverick’s ultimate project, and

we want to share this with all our

PCA friends around the country.

Come be part of an exciting and

rewarding project. We will soon

be looking for volunteers to help

with putting up dry wall, painting,

as well as many other More Than Words Can Discribe.

Happy Hour at Nuevo Leon

by Dennis Chamberlain

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, Monda

Degan and Mike Lockas

Asmall but enthusiastic

group of Mavericks

attended the November

18 Happy Hour at Nuevo Leon,

as we approached the

Thanksgiving Holiday. This

was our first visit to Nuevo

Leon since its recent change in

ownership. An advantage that

Nuevo Leon has to offer, in addition to a reasonably priced

menu, is that Clarence and Lydia Wyatt always come.

Another face that we hadn’t seen for awhile was Chris Smith.

New members

attending were Ken

and Grace Strauther

(’99 Carrera

Cabriolet), who used

to be members in the

Southern California

chapter when they

owned a 912E, and

James LaBarba. I

don’t know if you

can tell from the pictures,

but James

could have a second profession

by doing Billy Crystal

imitations.

For the January 20th

Happy Hour, we’ll be heading

back to the Saltgrass

Steakhouse in Irving.

We’ll be the group gathering

around the fireplace.

Curves Ahead - Passion and Performance

by Matt Platts & Mike Holloway, Slipstream Editor(s)

Last month, Mike Holloway was introduced as the new

Managing Editor for SLIPSTREAM. He contacted me

several weeks ago with interest in the position. I was

eager to talk to someone with experience and willingness but

I was also apprehensive. We put a lot of time and energy into

every issue, more so than many people realize. I didn't want

to hand this over to just anybody. The following is the first

conversation I had with Mike.

SLIPSTREAM: I'm glad you have an interest in the

publication, how long have you been a member of PCA?

MH: About three months.

SLIPSTREAM: Three Months? That's not very long,

how long have you owned your Porsche?

MH: Going on five months I guess, but I actually drove

the car I own for awhile in grad school, about eleven years

ago. A very good friend ended up buying her and kept her

on the road with the agreement that I would have first

refusal when it came time for him to give her up. That

happened several months ago.

SLIPSTREAM: What year and model?

MH: She is a 1977 911 Targa ROW with a 2.7l engine.

Various reliability upgrades have been made to her and for

the most part she runs real well. A little surface rust in a few

spots, but then again she was a Northeast car. She is in

surprisingly good shape.

SLIPSTREAM: You refer to your car as 'she', any

reason?

MH: Ya, kind of strange. I never really understood why

people referred to their sailing vessels or performance

vehicles as 'she' until I drove that car. After spending sometime

in it, I think I understand. I can't really explain it.

These cars are more than a means of transportation - they

are a blend of passion and performance. The darn things

have a soul. Let's face it, if you don't understand or respect

them, you can get seriously messed up.

SLIPSTREAM: The cars or the 'she's’?

MH: Yes.

SLIPSTREAM: OK, we will just leave it at that. What is

your background? You mentioned grad school, what did

you study?

MH: I have a weird combination - a BA in philosophy,

a BS in chemistry and an MS in chemical engineering.

Nineteen years ago, I started in R&D, and then moved into

product development, then sales and marketing. The past

five years it's been a combination of all that.

SLIPSTREAM: But you do desktop publishing now?

MH: Only by default, I do technical development and

reliability for a lubricant manufacturer. Awhile back, I spent

many many hours working with the folks in our marketing

and advertising departments on various projects I was spearheading.

There were too many re-dos. Now I just do it all

myself. It seems to save time. I speak at a bunch of conferences

on original concepts and research that I have done in the field.

I have a certain quality of work I like to present and a pace I

work at. It's easiest for me if I can take it all on, delegate when

needed but mostly punch through the rest myself.

SLIPSTREAM: So why do you want this post? The time

commitment is considerable and it is all voluntarily.

MH: I just love to create - physically and intellectually.

It's really a hobby for me. Also, I am one of those that

really like the stress of a deadline. The more things I have

going, the better I like it. I seem to be at my best when

pushed to the limit.

SLIPSTREAM: This will feed that need. Do you have

a family?

MH: I have a seventeen year old daughter that lives

outside of Chicago with her mom, a five year old son and a

two year old daughter that I have with Lisa, my wife of

seven years. The little ones really like the Targa. I really got

the car to work on with my son over the next ten years but

I suspect that my littlest girl will want to get her hands dirty

on it as well.

SLIPSTREAM: Are you going to get involved in DE or

racing?

MH: Someday, but right now I want to get the car in

shape. The engine is sound and she really doesn't weep any

oil. The transmission could use some new bushings but

that's about it for now. I will strip her down and clean her

up cosmetically. We'll save the internals for when problems

present themselves. For now, I'll just leave the engine well

enough alone.

SLIPSTREAM: So you must have read the 911 restoration

article that appears each month?

MH: Absolutely, it provided inspiration. The great

thing about this community is that folks are really willing

to share their insights and are not afraid of telling you their

mistakes. I will try to do as much of the work as possible.

There will be certain things that I just don't have the

machines for. Those are the things I will have to farm-out.

SLIPSTREAM: So what are some of the things that

you are looking to change in SLIPSTREAM?

MH: Not much of anything - it's a good read. I have a

few article ideas that might be fun but nothing radical.

Unless there is a ground swell of discontent (which there

doesn't seem to be), I say leave well enough alone. You guys

do a great job. I would feel privileged to be associated with

this publication.

SLIPSTREAM: We look forward to having you as part

of the team.

Maverick Driving Schools - Class of 2005

By Tom Snodgrass

Winter hiatus is nearly over! Are you ready for school? Maverick Region is sponsoring four driving schools to give you a taste of

what competitive driving is all about. Though safety comes first, having fun is our goal for everyone. The focus this year is on

Porsche drivers who want to learn more about driving their cars. Previous experience is not required. In fact, if you have taken

the schools two times already, you have graduated. Please accept our congratulations! (Now we want you to volunteer to help put on the

schools for the new people.) Students will receive full instruction from our excellent and experienced Maverick instructors. All schools are

held prior to the start of the Autocross and Time Trial seasons to get you hungry for more!

Ladies Only Autocross

Pennington Field - Saturday, February 19, 2005

This is our traditional ladies only school taught by our best lady

drivers. Many of them are class winners at the Porsche Parade. Guys

are just there to set up the course, work corners, and pick up cones

during this very well organized school. Top speeds are lower, and all

of the exercises are designed to help you learn about your car. There

is plenty of time to gradually increase your speeds as your confidence

grows. This is a great school for ladies that want to get ready

for the driving season, or just “give it a try”.

Autocross 102

Mineral Wells – Saturday, March 5, 2005

Though similar in organization to Autocross 101, the Mineral

Wells venue allows for more and different exercises, and a larger

Autocross course. Autocross 101 is not a prerequisite, so feel free to

attend Autocross 102 even if you cannot make it to 101. Mineral Wells

is the perfect location to explore the limits of your car. Students will

learn what the car can, and cannot do, in a safe environment.

Autocross 101 – Introduction

Pennington Field – Sunday, February 20, 2005

This school is the same format as the ladies only school the day

before, but is open to the gentlemen as well. Ladies are welcome to

join either day, or both! This school is the perfect introduction on

how to attend an Autocross. Students drive exercises in the morning

followed by a real Autocross in the afternoon. Students and instructors

“work” the corners to gain experience as an observer as well as

a driver. Fun runs at the end give volunteers and instructors a chance

to join the fun as well.

Time Trial 103

Mineral Wells – Sunday, March 6, 2005

This school provides a specific focus on the Maverick Time

Trial courses. This school includes multiple laps on courses that

are higher speed than the Autocrosses. Students learn higher speed

handling and transitions in portions of the Time Trial courses in

the morning. The afternoon is devoted to an actual Time Trial.

General Info:

The schools are expected to be

sold out. We limit the number of students

to ensure full instruction for everybody. This means:

Register early to ensure your spot!

The Porsche Club member cost is $35 for each school.

(This must be the bargain of the century for instructed driving schools!)

Non-Porsche Club and late registrations will cost $40.

Porsche Club members that sign up more than 2 weeks in advance

will have priority. Acceptance e-mails, along with school details, will be

delivered approximately 2 weeks prior to the school.

Helmets are required. They must have a SNELL 95 or SNELL 2000

rating. If you don’t have a helmet, loaners will be available. You will be

asked to purchase a head sock for a nominal charge (or bring your own).

All cars must have a Maverick Region technical inspection prior to

the schools. This ensures that any problems are fixed prior to showing up

at the track. Inspections may be performed at Mayo Performance in

Euless or Autoscope in Plano. Please contact Bill Miller at tt@mrpca.org,

or Chuck Machala at ax@mavpca.org for more details.

We need volunteers to help put on the school. Please consider

“giving back” by helping out with setup, running, and taking down the

event. We need you to register online so we know you are coming.

For more information, or to register (students or volunteers), go to:

http://www.pca.org/mav/Events/Schools.asp.

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Snodgrass at drivingschools@mavpca.org

or call at home 972-939-7967.

Blastin’ the Bayou Club Race

by Nitro Mueller (aka Bill Miller)

It was wet and dreary as local Maverick Club Racers

packed up and headed to Louisiana and the November

21 Blastin’ the Bayou Club Race. A year earlier several

Mavericks had run at No Problem Raceway and the word

spread of the terrific track and warm hospitality of the

Mardi Gras Region.

... a combination of “whoohoo” high speed

turns after the main straight...

Most of us arrived on Thursday to unpack and

settle in before the sun went down. Daylight arrival is

especially important at NPR because this is a place that

is not easy to find. It’s nestled between swamps and oil

refineries outside Baton Rouge. We unpacked in the

drizzle, got our cars into the garages and hoped for a

clearing in the weather.

We got the reprieve from rain we wanted on Friday.

That meant good weather for open track sessions and,

for rookies like me, a chance to learn the track. The 1.8-

mile circuit is virtually flat but with a combination of

“whoohoo” high-speed turns after the main straight and

technical low speed sequences on the backside that keep

it constantly interesting. After a day of driving we

tucked into a trackside spread of tasty Cajun food and a

live band that got even those of us with two left feet

(better for braking, I’m told) on the dance floor. The

Mardi Gras Region definitely knows how to throw a

party.

On Saturday the rain came back. We spent the day

huddled in the garages and under trailer awnings while

the rain alternated between showers and periods of outright

deluge. I went out for just one afternoon session

and found a combination of standing water and mud

dragged on the track by cars that had made off-road

excursions. The conditions got so bad that the Mardi

Gras folks wisely closed the track early. We all headed

Photo by Bill Miller

for dinner and another evening of Mardi Gras Region

hospitality and fun.

On Sunday the rain turned to intermittent drizzle

and we were able to drive. Qualifying was in the morning

followed by two types of races. The first was a Sprint

Race and the second was a Feature Race in what’s called

a Formula Libre format. The Sprint uses a rolling start

led by a pace car and your grid position is determined

by your qualifying time. The Formula Libre is a handicapped

format that starts each car individually in

reverse order of its qualifying time. The car with the

slowest qualifying time goes out first. The fastest qualifier

goes out last and, in theory, if every car ran like it

qualified, we’d all cross the finish line together.

The racing was exciting and the Mavericks made a

good showing, but the best thing about a Club Race

weekend is the people. It’s a chance to spend time with

friends and meet racers from other regions. The Mardi

Gras Region deserves kudos for the hard work that went

into 2004 Blastin’ the Bayou, for its volunteers and

workers who braved the elements, its Cajun hospitality,

Early 911 Restoration: No. 5

Photo by Charles Freeman

by Charles Freeman

Let me start this month’s update with a disclaimer, “Don’t

Try This At Home”. After about a year into this project I

am becoming quite discouraged. It seems every time I go

to work on the car I end up taking parts off but never putting

anything on. I will also add the words of wisdom, “don’t

purchase a non-running car because it is cheap thinking you

will restore it” those words I should have heeded. Anyway the

drudgery continues.

Photo by Charles Freeman

As you saw last time I had removed the floorpan by drilling

out some spot welds and using an air hammer to separate body

panels. Because I used the air hammer there was a lot of distortion

of the panel flanges so I had to straighten these out. Also, it left

a lot of excess metal on the flange so I needed to grind this off.

Up to this point of the project my angle grinder has become one

of my most valuable tools. I can put sanding disks on it to

remove paint, cutting wheels to cut metal, and grinding wheels

to smooth rough surfaces. I bought a high quality Dewalt and it

has yet to fail me. One note of caution, beware of loose clothing

when using the grinder. The “on” button locks in place so you

don’t have to fatigue your thumb by holding it down.

One time I had on a Tyvek jacket (like the white suits you

see people wearing when making silicon wafer chips) which I

thought I had tucked back. I was using the grinder and a knotted

wire wheel and I guess I was “zoning out” while grinding away

at the undercoating when I felt a powerful “whack” in my ribs.

I looked down and could see the Tyvek coat had gotten caught

in the wire wheel and the grinder had pulled itself up the jacket.

It was inches away from my face buzzing violently as it was

fully energized. I lucked out because it could have gone right to

my face and shredded my cheek. Instead, I ended up with a

painful bruise and a good lesson. Never let boredom set in when

working with power tools! Once the weld flange surfaces were

ground smooth I used a hammer and dolly to straighten the

flanges. I would find out how critical this was later. This also

gave me an opportunity to check the quality of the emergency

brake, accelerator, and clutch cable as these are completely

exposed from underneath the center tunnel.

The floorpan I bought was painted with a green primer

coat to prevent it from rusting. Welding through this primer

would reduce the quality of the weld. So I removed the paint

along the welding flange areas and painted it with a weldthrough

primer. That is why in some areas of my floorpan are

green and others are silver. I took this opportunity to spray

Eastwood’s Rust Encapsulator on the exposed underside of the

car. In order to blend the new floorpan into the car I had to

make a template of where I cut the old floorpan out of the car

and transfer to the new pan.

Well, I made a template, checked, re-checked, and checked

again. This was done by taking measurements from fixed points

as a reference around the body. The scenario goes like this: crawl

on your back under the car, stretch your arms as far as you can

to reach a bolt hole, stretch the tape measure out, watch it snap

back into your face, place it on the hole again, snap back into

your face, cuss a little, and so on. This was repeated countless

times because I knew I would only have one chance to cut the

new floorpan. Anyway, I figured I would err on the positive side

and cut away a little less than my template showed, place the

new piece onto the car and check the fit. I started to use the

grinder with a cutting wheel to cut the floorpan but found it

took way too long for my patience so I resorted to a Sawzall

(big industrial jig-saw). Now I finally had the new floorpan

ready to place on the car. Hmm, one person lifting a 4 foot by 6

foot sheet of metal and holding it on the car body, upside down,

would be challenging. I laid several sets of vise grips around the

outer panel flange of the car on the garage floor. I lifted up the

floorpan then laid down on my back with this on top of me.

I shuffled my body on the floor, kind of like a worm I guess,

until I was under the car. Well then I had to lift it off my chest

and hold it in place while I clamped it.

So envision this, I use my knees, head and one hand to push

the floorpan into position on the car. Did I mention this was

heavy? With the free arm I stretched out, felt around and found

a vise grip, then clamped the floorpan and car body flange

together. I then took one foot to kick another vise group close

to my hand and I clamped it to the car on the opposite side.

These two vise grips are not strong enough to hold the heavy

floorpan so I had to get about 10 vise grips positioned all

around the car. With the floorpan finally in place I extracted

myself from the car. My wife happened to be in the garage at the

time and she thought I looked pretty funny with the indention

of the floorpan in my forehead. After a few choice words she

decided to go into the house. After all the work of measuring

the template and being careful to leave sufficient overlap in the

front of the floorpan I realized I must not know how to read a

ruler. Most of the length where the old floorpan joins the new

20


Photo by Charles Freeman

had about an eighth inch gap. Oh well, too late now. I figured

my best option would be to buy some sheet metal, overlap the

old and new sections of floorpan and weld that into place. I

would do this after I welded the floorpan in place.

As I previously mentioned, I removed most of the floorpan

using an air chisel that left the flange severely distorted. This is

why you don’t do that. Once the floorpan was clamped to the

car I found I had to spend more time with a hammer and dolly

to get the new and old flanges to meet correctly. If these are not

in intimate contact the weld will not be good. Anyway, this took

a lot more of my time but also gave me the chance to reflect on

how best to weld this into place. My original plan was to drill

the spot welds of the old floor pan out from the car body side.

Photo by Charles Freeman

Why do it this way? Simple. After the old floorpan is

removed I would be left with a lot of little holes in the flanges

on the car body. When the new floorpan is in place all I have to

do is plug weld from the side where the hole is. To make my

very long story short, once I was ready to weld I just had to lean

over the car and start welding on the flange of the center tunnel.

Very easy to reach, and I wasn’t lying on my back! While welding

I alternated sides and front to back so as not to build up too

much heat in the sheetmetal. Well let’s just say it wasn’t perfect

but came out pretty good. Where there was good contact I

made a nice “puddle” in the center of the drilled hole and overlapped

the edges to “capture” the new floorpan. I then went

around the outside of the car on the flange just below the door.

Again, real easy to get to.

Unfortunately, I learned that welding with jeans that

have holes in them doesn’t stop the molten metal from searing

your skin.

East Texas Maze Tour (minus the maze)

by Marjy Chadwick

November 21, 2004 I guess the threat of rain kept most

people home, as only seven cars showed up for the East

Texas Maze Tour. But they were seven of the best. Ted

& Bonnie Glover were in their black 1977 Turbo, followed by

Andy & Cindy Miller in their silver 2004 Turbo Cabriolet. We

were all glad to see Andy as he had just gotten out of the

hospital on Friday. Jim and I were in our new (new to us) blue

2002 C4S. After us was CJ and his neighbor Carl in CJ’s 1997

red 993 C4S, and then Jim Mayzurk & Mimi Grant in Jim’s

beautiful blue 928. Jim had just gotten his car back after

having had the master cylinder repaired. Retirement must

really agree with Jim, as he looks happy and relaxed.

Following him was Frank in his black 2002 C4S. (Go C4S’s)

Frank showed us all his new sport exhaust. When he flips the

switch, it really has a great sound. Finally, the caboose was

Douglas in his black Mini.

roads with nothing around and then all of a sudden, bam –

there is this beautiful golf course and country club. The club

was lovely and the staff members were very accommodating.

Andy Miller - Poster Boy for the Grand Saline Salt Mines

Photo by Marjy Chadwick

We all got a big laugh when Ted had the waiter serve

Andy 6 shakers of salt and a shot of Gatorade. Andy has a

problem with his sodium and is on a high salt and low liquid

diet. After lunch we had a little time to let our food settle

as we waited for Ted to put air in his tires. Some of us

take care of this before the tour, but I guess Ted feels he can

do a better job with a little portable air pump.

Porsche Friendly Eagles Bluff Country Club For Lunch

The roads were wet when we started out, but by midmorning

had dried out. The trees were all turning and the

colors were beautiful. With all the rain we have had, Moore

Farms (where we were going to go through the cornfield

maze) was a muddy mess. It’s not the type of place you

want to take a bunch of Porsches. So we decided to spend a

little extra time driving on the back roads of east Texas.

We stopped in Bullard on Lake Palestine at the Eagles

Bluff Country Club for lunch. This place was out in the

middle of nowhere. We drove along these back country

Even P-Cars Need A Break!

What makes these tours so interesting are all the little

towns we go through as we transverse the back roads. They

all have their unique yard art, mailboxes, and bird houses.

You never know what you will find or see. While going

through the town of Frankston, we passed a little Ford dealership

and on the showroom floor was a Ford GT. Who

would guess in such a little town? Going through Grand

Saline, we passed the Morton Salt facility. Under the city

there is a salt dome that is 1.5 miles across and 16,000 feet

thick. This one facility could supply the world’s need for

salt for 20,000 years. Who knew? Around Forney we

stopped to say our good-byes and then head home. This is

always the sad part, as we all hate for the day to end.

Wonderful friends, exciting cars, beautiful scenery, what

more could you ask for?
