Once again, dear readers, I’m going to revisit
my rant on upcoming events. There’s so
much to pick from! Real soon now there’s a
Murrrder Mystery dinner – Aug 4. Tracey has said
that everyone has so much fun at these. There are
always the lunches, and don’t forget the Happy
Hours. See you at Razzoos??
Some of my favorite events are Teri’s rallies. This next one on
Aug 18 is a walking rally in and around the exhibits of the Nasher.
Not only will this be great fun, but you can earn some culture
points at the same time.
Keep a watch right here (or close by, anyway) for the next
upcoming concours event, tips on how to prepare your car for that
award wWinning shine, and more on the search for people looking
for that thrill of being a JUDGE!
Want a long weekend in the heart of American History?
Consider the PCA Escape to Chantilly, Virginia. It even sounds
romantic. More culture points along with some fun driving and
wonderful Porsche people – What could be better?
Periodically our advertisors host an event and August 18 is a
Service Event at Park Place. Take a look at their ad on pg 6 for the
list of activities they have planned.
Want more info? It’s all right here, just read on!

Please help us to keep growing!
Catch my Draft
by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President
Iwas thinking a lot about Parade (our Porsche
Club National Convention) and how we can
encourage Mavericks to go out and try it. I
was trying to figure out what exactly the draw was
for those of us that are so addicted to the national
event and how we can share that with other
members of the club who may not have tried it
yet. But it isn’t really ONE thing that I look forward
to. It is the combination of things that all roll together to
make each Parade a unique and wonderful experience.
First of all there are the national level competitions. Wendy
and I love competing (some of you may have already gathered
that!) and doing so against Porsche nuts from around the country
multiplies our fun. Even when we don’t do well, we have a
great time trying. And you might be surprised at how well you
do! My very first Parade, I ended up with a trophy in Tech Quiz,
and I had no idea I even knew anything!
Another reason we enjoy Parade is the friends we get to see
there. You add new people to your circle of friends every year. It
is nice catching up with them, seeing what cars
they have now, how their kids have grown, and
what they have been up to the past year.
But one of the things Wendy and I look forward
to the most is the drive out there. I know lots
of people will disagree with us, but we thoroughly
enjoyed our 3,600 miles of towing a Porsche
this year. Each Parade is in a different location so
we get to drive on new roads, see new sights, and
spend time together in a completely different way.
No phones, no email, no job distractions, no
kitchen to clean – time to clear your head and
think, and talk about all those things you wish
you had time to discuss.
Not to mention that on the way there we took
Jasmine to Carlsbad Caverns, and on the way back
we visited the Grand Canyon and Canyon de
But why would you, the first timer, be interested
One of the neat things that new Parade attendees
enjoy is meeting Peter Porsche. He is the son
of Ferry, and has attended over 20 of the recent
Parades. He is very friendly, and is always smiling
and signing autographs and posing for pictures.
He is very approachable and loves Parade, Porsche
Club members, and Mavericks in particular!
Another reason you might want to go is to try
something new. Even if you went to the Fort
Worth Parade in 2004, going to an out-of-town
Parade is a completely different experience. It is
like taking a French class versus studying in
France for a semester. The immersion with all the
like-minded people is amazing.
We get to stay at fabulous hotels, at reasonable costs, and
every trip up and down the elevator brings you more people with
Porsches. And the areas we visit are all unique and have a flavor all
their own. You can spend hours (or days) exploring the surrounding
region, finding all kinds of wonderful places to shop and eat.
Now, I understand Parade isn’t for everyone. Not everyone
can be as passionate about these silly cars as I am. And not everyone
wants to spend a week or more of their vacation time doing
this type of thing. But if any of this sounded interesting to you, it
is time to start planning. Make sure you have allocated some vacation
days, and start looking at your driving routes to Charlotte,
NC, now (or you can even fly in – we have quite a few people do
that as well). And kids are MORE than welcome at Parade – it
makes a fantastic family vacation, as there is plenty for kids of all
ages to do. And if you have any questions at all, I think you know
how to reach me. Call or email any time!
Come on out and join the fun! See you soon!
From the freeway to the victory lap,
no one covers your Porsche better.
It’s not just a Porsche—it’s your key to a record-setting performance. And when it comes to keeping your Porsche
in racing shape, look no further than Park Place. Our factory-trained technicians have the state-of-the-art
equipment and automotive service expertise to give you the inside track.
And on August 18, join us for the Park Place Pure Porsche Service Event, featuring:
• A spectacular display of Porsche race and track cars
• Complimentary 27-point Porsche inspection
• Experts to answer all your Porsche questions
• Service and parts vendors performing demonstrations
Come down and experience pure Porsche perfection for yourself.

Maverick Region board meeting on July
In attendance: James Shoffit, Mark Gluck,
Bob Kuykendall, Denny Payne, Lisa Steele,
Tracey Gross, Andrea Bell, Bryan Bell, Joel
Nannis, Charlie Davis, Teri Davis, Travis
Howard, Clay Perrine, Jan Mayo, & Wendy Shoffit. James called
the meeting to order at 7:00 PM.
James reported that Maverick will host the National
Winter Board Meeting on Feb 2-3, 2008. No information yet on
where or the exact schedule.
Eagle’s Canyon has had a setback. The recent rains have
damaged the paving and repaving is underway. Three of the
turns will be made faster and safer. Bryan Henderson is the
Chief Driving Instructor at Eagle’s Canyon.
James reported (with help from Joel) that Keith Olcha was
working on sponsorship. He then discussed the need for “keeper”
trophies for the Selcer Award recipients. Finally, James
(again) asked for volunteers for the Addison, Bedford, and
Plano lunches. We need members who will attend and be contacts
for these events.
Wendy gave a lengthy and excellent Parade report. I’ll not
report all that, as it will be in the next issue. I WILL report that
MR received the Public Service Award for our efforts getting
the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House constructed.
Jan asked if we want to continue sponsoring the Kid’s
Events at Parades. We decided that it has to be the decision of
the Parade organizers, as they might have a “paying” sponsor.
She also asked for “stuff” for Slipstream. Lisa agreed to write an
article about the Father’s Day Picnic.
Joel reported we have 1210 members at the moment. He
recently sent out 35 renewal letters… no responses yet.
Bob reported that he and Dennis had talked with Bob
Knight regarding the pending audit of our financial books,
who questioned the wisdom of doing this. His belief was that
a $1000 audit is not worth much. We discussed this and decided
that since most of our current receipts are via PayPal
(directly to the bank account) and checks, with very little cash
involved, that we would take Bob Knight’s advice. Besides, we
trust our treasurer. He also told us that the recent Club Race
lost over $10,000 which was due primarily to a 40% drop in
Club Racer attendance.
Denny, subbing for Christy, said that the logo hats sold
well at the recent autocross. Denny, subbing for Denny, asked
for more Picture of the Week submissions.
Lisa led a discussion of Slipstream rates. It’s been a few
years since we’ve bumped them. We have a waiting list of advertisers
and our circulation is higher. Production costs continue
to rise. Lisa agreed to get with Keith Olcha to devise a consistent
policy for advertisers and sponsors regarding Slipstream
ads. Ocassionally our major sponsors ask for specific ad locations.
Bryan reported that TimeTrial #5 and Autocross #5 were
well attended, in spite of the threat of rain. Water donations
totaling $65 were given to Hope. The last official TT/AX events
will be on September 15-16 at Mineral Wells, then the Charity
AX on Oct 14th at TMS. He reported that we had decided to
hold the Concours on the same day as the autocross. We have
not yet decided on the schedule or the venue for the Concours.
There was a minor injury at AX #5 during the worker change
so we decided it would be a good thing to purchase a new first
aid kit for the Truxster.
Mark reported that we did have insurance for the above
autocross…and for all other events too.
Tracey agreed that the Father’s Day Picnic was good. She
has scheduled the Post-Parade Dinner at Saltgrass Steakhouse
in Grapevine. She reported that we have an offer to host the
Holiday Party in Ft. Worth again, but we hope to have an alternate
location near Dallas, as alternating seems to be the norm.
Any Dallas County volunteers?
Charlie requested that he not be listed as Club
Photographer in Slipstream, but rather as the AX/TT Rules
Committee Chair. This prompted several other changes to Pg 4.

Yokohama Tire Tech Winner
by Doug Molny
Last month I received a call from our friends and newlyweds
Mark and Monda Hanna asking me to join them for a tech
session at Discount Tire. I must admit I have not been to a
tech session for a couple of years but the mention of a raffle for a set
of Yokohama tires was too much to keep me away. Somehow I
talked my wife into going with me. Now, Melinda is not one who
would normally sit in on a meeting at a tire store with a bunch of
guys talking about camber, caster, tire temps, etc. However, I told
her that Mark and Monda were going and that I just had a feeling
we needed to go. I thought we would hook up for dinner with them
after the session. The session went on for a couple of hours and
turned out to be very informative with several executives from
Yokohama there as well as Colby McGehee, the Texas Rep, who is a
knowledgeable young man who could answer our questions about
racing and tires.
They asked us to write our names down on paper and threw
them into a hat for door prizes. I won a coffee mug and Melinda
won something else small. Then all the names were placed back
into the hat for the grand prize and Melinda's name was pulled
out again. Man, was I lucky my wife did not need tires for her
Lexus! She was happy to pass the gift to me for my 1995 993 Cab,
which was desperate for new tires. Discount Tire was very nice to
accommodate me and I now have a set of Yokohamas Avain
Sports. Believe me they are great tires - excellent dry and wet traction.
This included mounting, balancing, and the guys at the
store even cleaned the wheels! This has to be the best gift I could
have imagined and I, of course, gave my friend Mark the coffee
mug. I could see in his eyes he wanted the tires and I hope next
time he wins.
Yokohama also sent me a Porsche Factory DVD of the 356
being built from scratch, which must be from the very early
1950's. A very cool film. I even thought I spotted a 912 somewhere
in the film (maybe a prototype). I will have some copies
made. By the way, I need to thank Mark Hanna for calling me and
inviting me to the tech session.
Thanks to Discount Tire for the set of tires and for sponsoring
a great event.
Discount Tire Manager, Todd, congratulating Doug
Maverick Minutes Cont.
there were two “meeings” in the current calendar. She reported
that the rally school had eight cars, made $20.40 profit, and
produced a winner at Parade.
Travis thanked James for completing the autocross results.
He also complemented the course designer of the last autocross
(Joel) who did it with only five pylons!
Clay attended because he has agreed to be the 2008
Autocross Chair. He had some suggestions for changes to the
rules. Charlie explained that as the Autocross Chair he will
automatically be on the Rules Committee. One of his key
points was increasing the number of runs above 5. Clay will
start scheduling AX events as soon as the track events are scheduled.
James adjourned the meeting at 9:12 PM.
From the Tech Q&A - 928
by John Veninger - 928 Tech Advisor
Question: This vehicle has been in storage for over 10 years
and just recently restored to running condition. The rear
quarter panels appear to have warped from time and I
would like to find out what options are available to rectify the problem.
The material over the panels are still in great shape (no cracking).
Answer: I know of three options to solve the rear warped panel
issue. The first is the least labor intensive; buy a pair of good
used ones. The second option is to use epoxy resin and glass
cloth to fix the warped area. The epoxy will soak into the fiberboard
and make it stiffer to prevent future warping. The last option is to
rivet a 2” wide strip of metal the full length of the panel on the
underside as close to the edge as possible. This will straighten out
most of the warping.

A Newbie’s First Rally School
by Peg Kierstead
When my husband, Steve, and I (two brand new members
of the PCA’s Maverick Region) arrived at the Hackberry
Country Club for the June Rally School, we knew we
were in a good place. Long-time members and other newbies
were all welcoming and pleasant people.
Teri Davis diagraming an intersection through her
review of General Instructions, Supplemental GI’s, the glossary,
and the pink sheet we found ourselves lost in a flurry of papers,
but we relaxed when Teri assured us it’s a game and it’s about
Getting into our Cayman and lining up for the start had a
calming effect, and I felt a thrill as I counted down the seconds
to our start time. (I must add “Note to Newbie: basic rules of
safety still apply.” We almost pulled through a stop sign without
realizing cross traffic did not stop.)
It was fun working our way through the transit zone and
leg one; we looked for road signs, remembered notes, and compared
our time against the instructions. New phrases and concepts
rolled off our tongues: CAST, notes, counting pauses, “Is
this a T?” We arrived at Checkpoint One in good time, and then
it all fell apart. There was a road we couldn’t find, despite two
attempts, and we just drove back to the country club.
There we found a lively discussion in progress. A poll was
taken: “Did you find Belt Line?” A strange mantra was heard:
“ONLY ONLY ONLY.” (This refers to a lane sign with three
arrows describing the only way each lane could turn. Many
people never saw it; apparently the group found a trap Teri hadn’t
intended.) We newbies also learned an important fact:
checkpoints are not indicated in the instructions.
Then the rally mistress returned, recapped
the discussion of misses and problems, and put
the whole thing in focus. We learned where we
had gone wrong and that we weren’t the only
Steve and I left the rally glowing with the
aftereffects of time well-spent, happy to have
met some nice people and to have challenged
ourselves with a new activity. I feel an obsession

My First Porsche Club Article
by Grant A. Gosler
Greetings, Porsche fans. A quick introduction should be in order here.
My name is Grant Austin Gosler. Some of you from various track days
might have seen me lurking about and in turn quickly hidden your
daughters of age and valuables. I’m the greasy unkempt guy that leaves motor
oil on the jukebox buttons.
crate loose on a cargo ship deck in a terrific storm. But like many things in a
small town that teenaged boys are drawn to, the Mustang’s looks would grow
on you, especially with a bottle of Boone’s Farm. It was an acceptable
machine for the circumstances.
But wait a second now. I am not all beer cans and gimme hats here. It
turns out my mother lives in Europe, in The Netherlands to be exact. I spent
several summers escaping college life sleazing around Western Europe on
trains. For those who might not understand how a pancake flat, sub sea level
country known for its hash, hookers and Heineken can spark any semblance
of driving passion, may I direct your attention to a location a few hundred
miles to the south east. Nestled amongst the trees is - what would first appear
to be a dyslexic concrete tapeworm doing its best impression of the letter “D”
- The Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit. This track is a public road for periods
of time. Anyone with a bit of spare cash and some wheels can brave its
ribbony lengths at their own risk. It’s a great track in that it is excessively long;
it is filled with traffic, and feels as wide as a sidewalk at speed.
It was here that I made new German acquaintances in the BMW 2002
Tii and the Porsche/VW 914. One of these cars offered upright saloon seating,
complete with ample headroom with a greenhouse of glass. The 2002
was the type of car one could drive on track with zeal. Amazing, too, is that
it would easily cart three of your best mates all the way to St. Jerome’s Pub in
the winding brick throat of Den Haag.
The other car made me feel like I was sitting on the floor with a mental
lawnmower engine chasing me about. This car was a real teeth rattler. This
914 cockpit featured a slim dashboard with hardly room for a drink, and forget
about leaning that seat back at all. The little 914 was track savvy enough,
even with near solid rock suspension components and a curious wafting fuel
odor. Yet, in every day life, this machine was game for cobblestone bouncing
into the city Centrum after a bag of frites at Polleke.
Thus, I would return to the States with a new respect for curves, apexes
and the idea that turning cars can be as fun as making them go in a straight
line. Now I needed a car that would properly entertain my new driving philosophy.
Acquiring a 914 or 2002 was turning out to become a difficult task.
These are great cars, but they both suffer from being a tad on the rare side.
They are also the types of cars that benefit from much fiddling under the
hood. The few candidates I found needed immediate attention. I began to
wonder if there was something out there with stellar handling, acceptable
looks, and affordable to boot? Was there a car for me that did not use a fuel
delivery system similar to the one powering Ivanhoe’s horse?
Enter the Mazda Mx5 Miata. Upon mention of this car, I usually prepare
myself for comments containing the words “chick car” or “hair dryer.”
The Miata’s halo effect is one of the only downsides to the car. Power may be
a problem for some, but that is what the aftermarket is for. Soon enough I
had the tiny roadster packed with go fast goodies. Supercharged induction is
just one highlight in that long line of Miata products. I even bought a 1999
Sport to use as a stocker. I drove my Miata through college and for a few years
after. The Miata experience was really tremendous, but being a self doubting
social sheep type I could not continue trying to live down the image assigned
to me by the masses. From here on out I could only do what every red blooded
American with low self esteem, long work hours, and disposable income
would do, I decided to exercise my right as a consumer.
This time around I would seek out an entirely new level of machine. I
wanted to combine and congeal some of my favorite vehicular ideals into one
car. The basic idea of the BMW M3 could possibly evoke the spirit of a
2002Tii with practical power and poise, so naturally this was a great candi-
Don’t go backing away yet, I am gainfully employed as an artist for a
video game company. With the illusion of vagrancy dispelled I can focus on
my recent opportunity to compose an article for this publication. I must
start off by admitting I do not own a Porsche.
I have been a general sports car fan for much of my life, and Porsches
have always been one of my very favorite automobile marques. Functional
Teutonic skin stretched over championship winning guts is a combination
fit for even his holiness the Great Lizard Pope. On top of that, Porsche has
always been a
in the business
of fun cars.
These cars are
often noted for
such features as
hanging out in
Author Grant and Friends
pop up headlights, resembling Kermit the Frog trying to wire his house on
a budget. To this day I still see hound’s tooth overlaid upon my vision due
to retinal damage incurred from a pair of Porsche seats. This is not a negative
slant in any way, as I often fancy myself as possessing my own share of
“unique” qualities. Considering the fact that I am afraid of the dark, cannot
tell time on an analog clock, and style my sideburns after a werewolf, one
might see I am in hardly the position to throw stones. So, you may ask, if I
have such a fraternal connection to this car why do I not own one? Why have
I shown up to the track lately in a swoopy, American monstrosity? I do have
the answer for all this, in a tidy, written format that amazingly resembles an
article. I was thinking that since I wanted to compose an article for this very
magazine, I could actuate 2 valves with a single camshaft.
At this point you might be thinking that this article is nothing more
than a stream of consciousness rant. You might even want to roll this publication
up and fire it at my home, tied to a ballista bolt ….on fire. But I urge
you to think about what you are doing, and preserve the section containing
the paid advertisements. And about those ballista bolts, you can find me at
the following address: 1060 W Addison St. Chicago, IL 60613
My racing interests began long ago with my involvement in the White
Trash Stoplight Derby League operating on the streets of many Texas small
towns. I further proved my mettle driving in the Good Ole Boy Dirt Road
Rally on gravel strewn back roads. We even had mailboxes instead of cones
along the race course. In those days the 302 Fox platform Mustang was the
car of choice. Stinky, square, and balanced like a blacksmith’s hammer, the
only redeeming quality of this car was the lumping big V8. We could make
power in this engine as easily as we could produce spit-wads in detention.
The styling, braking, and handling could further be compared to an overseas
date. On the other hand, my test drives of the Boxster, Cayman and the
microscopic Lotus Elise brought back memories of a 914 all grown up. The
Elise especially won me over with its soundtrack of road debris enjoyed from
such a low position within the already short car.
If only I could somehow get a Miata and an old Mustang to snuggle
up and produce some kind of unholy offspring. With the right genetic mix,
I might breed a sleek handling rear driver with an enormous torque biased
V8. And possibly the car would endow me with a bit of “shed-cred” to keep
my hulking, good old boy relatives from beating me up. And that’s when I
remembered something. I can recall a host of roaring plastic doorstops from
many of my track days, zooming past me. I still can still see clearly the four
red eyes disappearing down the straights. Could a Corvette really have the
genitalia compensation power I have heard so much about? Does confidence
and happiness come in six liter doses? I can assure you yes it does indeed. The
Corvette is like a heavy dose of lap time Viagra. I have traded my ham hands
and my lead foot for a Burt Reynolds mask with matching Saturn Five rocket
booster underwear. I like this car so much my only planned modifications
are a “Dixie Song” horn and a curious reciprocating red light that zigs horizontally
between the headlamps. I suppose this car appeals to two important
facets of my personality like a Frosted Mini Wheats commercial. The torque
laden V8 appeals to the macho bubba in me while my sensitive art poofter
side loves to toy with endless grip and balance.

Father’s Day - Rain or Shine!
by Lisa Steele
Many people probably thought that the Father’s Day social was cancelled due to
rain, rain, and more rain, but we actually had a wonderful time with approximately
35ish people. This year we met at the BEAUTIFUL home of the Bell
Family. Their house is very unique with something like 12 exterior doors, lots of windows,
ponds (ask Andrea and Bryan what they find in those ponds), and a very open
floor plan. I could never use the right words to describe the gorgeous view of natural
landscape that surrounds their home. Once everyone had the grand tour, you could not
resist the aroma from the chocolate fountain Andrea set up in the kitchen…we all nibbled
on chocolate covered strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels, bananas, cookies, and
whatever else you wanted to experiment with.
Conner, the youngest member of the Bell family, opened his rather large bedroom
to the other kiddos that came. The kids were very anxious to get in the swimming
pool but mother-nature was not being
very accommodating, so Conner had
games to play and some origami to make.
Once the grill got
fired up by Grill Master
Bryan Bell, everyone
got a plate and started
filling it with the various
side dishes brought
by all…the most popular
dish seem to be the
Conner starts the splashing
raman noodle salad
made by Christy Dominick…yummy! Of course, the Bells were
prepared with tables set up in the garage, so there was plenty of
space to eat and stay dry. Once our tummies were full, the sun
decided to make an appearance and the kids immediately jumped
into the swimming pool…a little chilly but who cares when you’re
a kid? A great time was had by all and it was so nice to see all of the
fathers from our Porsche family. A huge Thank You to the Bell
Family for opening up their fabulous home to us all!

We are now building and taking orders for Porsche 924/944's for SCCA, PCA and NASA racing for
the 2007 season.
With the addition of the PCA 944-SPEC (SP1-SP3) series, there is now a greater than ever venue
to economically race these cars. In SCCA, you can have a GT2, GT3, EP, or ITA racer. With PCA,
you can pick from a number of classes, dependent upon your car.
Cars are built from mild to wild, depending upon what class you plan to enter and to what level
you want to participate.
Our experience building and racing Porsches goes back to our 911's in the mid and late 70's,
and 944's in the 80's in SCCA, IMSA GTU and Firehawk, PCA in the late and early 80's/90's,
and Speedvision GT, Rolex GT and GT in 2000 up. In addition to the Porsches, we have had a
hand in building five AUDI S4's for the Grand AM Cup, and a couple of AUDI TT's for SCCA.
We can build on our inventory of chassis's, or take yours and develop it into the race car you want.
Get ready for the 2007 season NOW!! We plan to attend and support as many race events for
2007 as our racing schedule will allow.

Happy Hour at Champps
by Dennis Chamberlain
It always rains when we go to Champps, and so the afternoon
rain storm was no surprise – especially with the kind of
weather we’d been having for two months. But as in prior
years, it was no problem. The turnout was fine. Besides, the rain
stopped an hour or two before the Happy Hour began.
We had new members, old
members, and intermediate
members. We even had members
who ordinarily confine their happiness
to the track, rather than
food and beverages – like Mark
Steele, for example. At first, I
didn’t recognize him without his
Mark sans helmet
New attendees and members
included Karen and Mike
Thompson. Karen and Mike have a ranch in Kansas that has
suffered from the
floods, but they
were in Dallas
long enough to
come to their
first happy hour
and it was great
to visit with
Mike and Karen
August 16 Happy
Hour we’re returning to Razzoo’s in Irving. Take the
MacArthur exit off 635 and get on the LBJ service road going
west. Razzoo’s will be on your
right, several blocks down. As
you probably know, they serve
large portions of Cajun and
American food. Hope to see you

Boxstoberfest is an annual event, held in Fredericksburg, TX - right in the middle of the TX hill country.
As always, Boxstoberfest is free (no registration fee, but you are responsible for your own meals and
lodging). This year, the event is Sept 7-9. Boxstoberfest is a low key event that the main focus is the
Saturday drive. Some of the best driving roads in the US will be covered. As always, we will be
hitting the “twisted sisters” - 335, 336 and 337. These roads have great elevation changes, tight
twisties, and straight sections with virtually no other traffic so you can really enjoy what your Boxster
was built to do.
The event starts off Friday night at the Auslander restaurant, where everyone gets their goody bags
and maps, meets up with old friends and makes a few new friends (and have a few beers).
Saturday starts off at the Gillespie County Airport, where we all line up for a mini concourse . . .
. . . then off to the drive.
After an exciting day, we meet back up at the Officers Club, wind down a bit, then meet back up
for dinner and door prizes.
Everyone who has been has had a wonderful time. For more information, go to
www.boxstoberfest.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
