It’s the February issue but I’m writing this in
January so New Years’ Resolutions come to
mind. What are you doing for you? Yeah,
diet and gym, start running again….. No, I
mean, what are you doing for YOU?? How
about some fun… some CAR fun. Look at the
things we have planned for the next couple of
The Ladies and Teens Autocross school. Think of the
thrill of seeing your teenager in a four-wheel drift going
around the skid pad. Come on now, you know you’d be proud
- Who would be whooping and hollering louder? Did you see
in the January issue the number of ladies trophying in the
autocross and time trial series? This is the place we all
started. Pennington Field, nice and close to home, Saturday
February 17. AND Ladies and teens get a two day double
whammy. With one day of practice under your belt come
back out Sunday and show up the new guys. Hee hee hee ! !
Guys, do you want a safe environment to see the limits of
your car? Practice those ABS systems and see if you can
modulate it? Yeah, sure you can stop on a dime… can you
stop on THE dime, precisely? Consistently? Can the newer
cars be made to spin? How does it feel to slalom back and
forth? Faster – Faster - oops. Well, Sunday’s your day,
Are you already autocrossing? Had a year or two that you
enjoyed very much? We have something for you, too. In
March there will be another school, this one in Mineral Wells.
This is great for beginners as well as those of you who
consider yourselves itnermediate. The MineralRing has some
more space for some higher speed applications. What fun is
that!! Let me tell ya, A Bunch. March 3-4.
And for you track junkies or wanna-be track junkies,
MotorSport Ranch beckons. Two full days of instruction,
20-25 minute run sets, 16 corners, passing straights, 3.2 miles
of track, what more could you ask for? February 24-25.
Come on out and drive. I’ll see you there.

Catch my Draft
by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President
Iam looking at the calendar for the upcoming
months and it seems like we have something
going on nearly every weekend. It is hard to
keep up! But we are trying to make sure that no
matter what type of activity a member wants to
try, we have one available to them.
I love statistics and so I was looking at our
membership roster to see how long people have
been members. As it turns out, more than half of our entire membership
consists of members who have joined in the last 4 years!
Now, I am not sure if that is a high number or a low number, but
I realized that many people may not even have an idea what a
Concours is. I asked last month if anyone was interested, but I
think I should probably go into a little more explanation, since
most of us haven’t really been around since we had a locally run
PCA Concours (except the Parade 2004 Concours, which was
really a national event).
Concours d’Elegance is the official French title which means
“contest of elegance.” (By the way, since the word is French, the “s”
on the end of Concours in not pronounced – it sounds like
kon-koor, or if you are from Texas, kawn-kewer). (Oops, I hope
that doesn’t generate any “fan” mail!)
The object is to get your car as close to the state it was in when
it was delivered from the factory. PCA Parade Competition Rules
provides for four main classes : Restoration where cars must be at
least 10 years old, and doesn’t require full originality; Preservation
where cars must be at least 10 years old and completely original;
Preparation for newer cars; and Performance for race cars. The
cars are scored by judges who look inside, outside, and under the
cars to determine their cleanliness, and where appropriate,
originality. They can look nearly anywhere including brake rotors,
behind cylinder heads, door latches, etc.
The Parade Concours is quite a big deal and people spend
months preparing for it. In the Houston-area region (Lone Star) of
PCA, they also have pretty intense Concours with full judging. But
I would like for us to start small.
Bob Bianconi, the Concours Chair for Parade when we
hosted it in 2004, came forward and offered to help out with the
Concours program this year. We will start with just some simpler
events to get our feet wet - maybe a little more than a show-andshine
and a lot less than a standard Concours. He wrote an introductory
article in this issue, and look for a schedule to be coming
out pretty soon.
Another new type of event we are going to try this year is the
Sunday Drive. We have a chairperson for that as well, and the idea
is that we get together in our Porsches and take short drives to
interesting places in our area. They won’t take all day, and
the speeds will be limited to posted speed limits, making them
friendly for passengers and kids. We should have a schedule for
these coming out soon, as well.
Final topic is our monthly lunches. We get together in
different places around the Metroplex to grab a bite to eat with
some fellow Porsche fans. If you haven’t tried one yet, give it a
whirl. I have always enjoyed the ones I have attended. There isn’t
really an RSVP system set up for that – whoever shows up, shows
up. Sometimes there are 10-15 people, sometimes just a few. You
might need to look around for the group, or ask the Maitre D’.
We currently have them in Bedford, Addison, and Plano. I was
considering starting a new one in Lewisville, maybe on a different
date in case some of the people who attend other lunches would
want to join in. Let me know by sending an email to
email@example.com if you would be interested in attending a
Coming up in February we have our first DE of the year to
shake off some of the rust at Motorsport Ranch (our long-term
local race track), as well as our Ladies/Teens Autocross School and
the Introduction to Autocross, both on the same weekend at
You can check the website for details on all of our events. We
also have our first Rally of the season – a Photo Rally in Plano.
Come on out and join the fun! See you soon!

by Charlie Davis
The January 2, 2007, Maverick Region Board
Meeting was called to order at 7:00 PM.
Charlie: Requested cooperation by not
talking when other board members have the floor.
It’s difficult to hear the recording of the minutes
when multiple conversations are in process.
James: Bob Knight has agreed to continue to prepare our tax
return. Discussed what the Club storage facility needed to retain?
We decided to leave Club Race (CR) notebooks there, bring AX
timing stuff to next board meeting and give to Charlie, leave
pylons there, and dispose of old waivers.
Wendy: Reported a good time at Hope Shelter Christmas
Party. The House is about 90% complete and is occupied.
Formal dedication will occur on 27th.
She proposed we make Gift Certificates available for sale as
gifts to enthusiasts who might like to try our events. General
approval w/o vote. Proposed to sell in Goodie Store. Denny said
that we still need to get PayPal working for the Store. Mark says
there are state laws about gift certificates: If a certificate is sold
and not redeemed (after some specific time), the state claims it.
That is why most stores that issue gift cards/certificates gradually
reduce the value. Wendy checked and found that she already had
an expiration date on her prototype certificates.
Mark: Our first moving event is the Photo Rally and he will
proceed to secure insurance for it. Teri asked if counties are still
required? Mark said to just specify the beginning location and
the ending location, if it is different.
Regarding ads: The DE ad for the next issue is the same as in
the current Slipstream. A discussion of all pending events that
needed ads ensued.
Jan: Asked Charlie and/or Bryan to e-mail a copy of the
AX/TT Rules change notice. Gave Bob a bill for the Hope House
plaque. Inquired of Wendy if there was a plaque on the “kids”
room. Discussed briefly if we should get a plaque for that room,
as mostly it was done by the Lewis’s. She again asked for
someone to write an article about the Holiday Party. Erica was
not in attendance, so she was volunteered. Joel said he would “do
his best” to have her expedite it this week.
Bill: We have four confirmed DE dates at MSR: Feb, Apr,
Sept, & Oct. He asked Jeff/Bob for a check to hold those dates
(25%). RUF will sponsor the Feb one. Keith will be finding
sponsors for the others. We will pay $900/day more for MSR in
2007. So, we have had to raise the entry fee for a DE to $240. We
noticed a trend…the people in the yellow and white groups are
waiting until the last minute to register…if the weather looks
bad, they choose to skip. This was making registration difficult.
There are long-lead-time things like meals, shirts, etc. Therefore,
we have imposed a $20 late fee. Joe thinks that $20 is too low to
have the intended effect. Bill agreed. He also said we still need
people to take over Hospitality. Preferably, a non-participant. Jan
said she put a notice in her Slipstream article about this and
asked Bill if he needed something bigger, to let her know.
If anybody has any suggestions, please let him know. He was
surprised to recently find out that John was no longer Club Race
Chair! We are in need of a CR Chair. The Chair needs to be a
Joel: We have, according to PCA, 1075 primary and 822
affiliate members, for a total of 1897. My records show 1180
primary members. We have 105 more members than National
says we do…and that’s again due to our keeping them on the
rolls for an additional 3 months. Charlie asked about the
people that we keep on for 3 months: What percent of those
ultimately re-up? Joel said there’s probably about 25% of the
people who re-up late.
Bob: Thanked us for having him as our treasurer. He knows
he’s supposed to say, “We have money,” but although Jeff assures
him we do, he has only seen one $750 check. He and Jeff are
going to meet at the bank sometime this week to sign a new card.
James asked to join them if they do it before Friday. Bryan asked
if we remove past officers? James replied that we did…eventually.
Joe asked if Bob could print out checks if he was given a list of
names. Bob said he thought we have been doing manual checks,
James asked if he wanted to computerize it? Bob took that under
advisement. Joe explained that at every DE event there is a
significant number of checks that have to be written. He can give
Bob an 85%-90% accurate list well in advance and he could have
the checks preprinted. Mark asked how our books are kept?
James questioned Bob regarding his desire to take on the task of
learning QuickBooks or Quicken? Jan asked Bob if he knew the
status of whether the books have been audited? He didn’t. James
explained that Dennis had a friend that was going to do it.
Denny: He spent yesterday on the calendar of events. He put
most of the repeating events in the calendar. But he did not have
info on any of the driving events. He requested we let him know
if there is something this month that should be in the calendar
and he’ll get it included ASAP. The New Member Party, the
Happy Hours, and the Lunches are there…but that’s all. James
asked if the Hope House Dedication should be on there?
Denny will put an entry for Sat 27th…no time…and a
contact. Charlie asked if we should call it the Huffaker-Hughes
Hope House? We decided to just call it the Hope Shelter. Teri
inquired about Rally dates on the calendar. Denny had not put
them on. Denny doesn’t want to depend on “mining” of
Slipstream for info all the time, so please let him know if there
is something missing. James asked Denny to put the whole 2007
calendar on the web site. Wendy volunteered to help. She asked
if we wanted a printable .PDF version again. We decided to
continue that tradition.
Jeff: James skipped him, as he was now gone.
Tracey: The New Member Party is the next Social event and
will be located at Hedgecock and Custer in Plano. People will be
invited to bring DVD’s for the huge media room. The wine
tasting is March 10th for at MOST 32 people. It’s going to be the
same format as last time at Premier Wines, at Parker and Preston
in Plano. May at Mayo’s will be the 1st weekend of May to avoid
a conflict with Mother’s day. Wendy proposed we call it Cinco de
Mayo at Mayo’s? Denny noticed the Addison Lunch, being the
3rd Tuesday of every month, happens to fall on Christmas day
this year. We discussed moving or dropping this lunch, but did
not decide. Tracey spoke to Hackberry Creek and told them we
were less than enthusiastic about our service and food lately, so
she is investigating other nearby restaurants.
Lisa: Asked if there is room for more ads in Slipstream?
She has 5 potential new advertisers. This started the longest
discussion of the night! [begin short version] We decided to
gather more data about Slipstream costs and ad rates and make
the decision later. [end short version]
Andrea: She has nothing to report about AX registration.
Bryan: Admitted that he had a bunch of stuff to discuss, but
will cut it short. We had an AX rules meeting on December 11,
with Charlie, James, Lisa, Wendy, Mike Lockas, Shelly, and Bryan
in attendance. We changed a few small things in the Rules;
nothing major. Charlie and James adjusted the PPF calculations.
He announced that the Father’s Day picnic will be at the Bell’s
house, with approval from Andrea. He wants everyone to come.
Clint: He’d like to help…volunteer to do something. We
discussed his qualifications and desires…offered him Club Race
Chair, Slipstream Editor, Concours Chair, etc. Clint wanted to
discuss it afterwards.
Charlie: Gave Bob an invoice for the pictures at Founders
Day. He reported that only one of the pictures was returned by
USPS and he has re-sent it.
Teri: The Photo Rally is next on the rally series. She has
dates, but not locations for the others. She can put these in your
neighborhood, if you’re interested. All she needs is a little help on
the front end. If you have some ideas for rallies, let her know.
Robyn: She just showed up to see what we were talking
about. She came to hear some GOOD stuff that doesn’t get put in
the Minutes! Lisa tried to get her to volunteer for Hospitality
Chair. She’ll think about it.
Travis: He came to understand and appreciate what it takes
to run this club; he likes to peek into the inner working circle
every once in a while. Travis said he liked to see the board in
action and see all the other parts that he didn’t deal with. It gives
him a better understanding. He reported that he likes the on-line
Slipstream the best, because it has colored pictures and he can
look at it at work.
James: Asked about sponsorship of our major events,
specifically how do we handle a situation where we have more
than one potential sponsor? We discussed it at length, with no
resolution. He adjourned the meeting at 8:35 PM.

2007 Autocross and Time Trial Rule Changes
by Charlie Davis
The AX/TT Rules for 2007 have been changed slightly. A few errors in
the Stock Car Data, which affect primarily 944 and 1974-1977 911
models, have been fixed. A systemic change was made to the handicap
weights used to compute the Predicted Performance Factor (PPF).
This change will increase the handicap weights about 2% for everything
except tire changes. The handicap on DOT tires has been increased about
29% (the actual handicap increase depends on the actual UTQG Tread
Wear Rating, varying from 22% to 33%). The handicap on non-DOT tires
has been increased 20%. These changes have 1) modified the base classes
for some cars and 2) resulted in new PPF values for almost all cars. It is
important that you visit the Maverick Region website and reclassify your
car for 2007!
Charlie Davis - 2007 Rules Committee
Bryan Bell - 2007 Autocross & Time Trial Chair
The written rules have also been changed. The biggest changes were
to the Top Driver scoring. The Top Driver Runoff has been replaced with
the computed Top Driver Index that previously qualified a driver for the
There were several small wording changes, intended to correct
wording or clarify the rules (see B.1.a, B.2.c, and C.2.d). D4 is a new rule
that specifies the max and min weights of pylons.
The on-line Classification Spreadsheet has also been changed slightly
to improve ease of use.

Putting the Question Mark in: Huh?
by Bob Bianconi
It was when Jimmy Carter was president. Or when Walter Mondale
was hosed by Ronald Reagan. When the terms 'air-head' and 'eat-myshorts'
became popular. Maybe even as recently as the last Cowboy
appearance in a Super Bowl… What am I talking about? Well the last
time Maverick scheduled a year of Concours events, of course.
Concours d'Elegance (sometimes misspelled as “concourse”), Show
and Shine, whatever you want to call it is on the to-do list for this year.
The most famous Concours d'Elegance, perhaps, are the events at Pebble
Beach and Amelia Island. For PCA, Concours are held during the
annual Porsche Parade, at the PCA Zone level (multiple regions) and by
the various individual regions across the country. In fact, Hill Country
holds a Concours event as part of Porschedillo each year. And now,
Maverick is set to have a Concours program as well.
What exactly is a Concours d'Elegance?
For us, it'll be a car show where the cars are judged for cleanliness.
At the national levels of PCA Concours competition, cars are judged to
very high standards of originality and/or cleanliness. Some folks liken it
to how the cars came out of the factory. But truth be told, when Peter
Porsche was here in Ft.Worth in 2004, he was heard saying that the cars
on display were much cleaner than when they come out of his factory!
For our first foray into Concours, we'll be happy to have you bring
your freshly washed car to put on display. And if you feel the twang of
competition, you can even do a little detailing so that it looks just a little
better than the car next to you. That's the whole idea, you know. We'll
work out some trophies for the winners and everyone will have a chance
to look at some awesome cars. Even if you don't win a trophy, you now
have a car that is cleaner than it was the week before. How can you lose?
So who can play?
Esther at the Portland Parade Concours
Well, here's a simple question: Do you wash your car? Have you ever
washed your car? I hear a collective, yes (once, a couple years ago), Well,
then, YOU are now qualified to enter an upcoming Maverick Concours.
Stay tuned for more information about the first Maverick Concours
since Britney Spears left the Mouseketeers.

A Hope House Christmas
by Clara Lewis
December 23, 2006, was truly a joyous day as it marked the
first Christmas at the completed new Hope Shelter.
Due to an emergency (the phone company turned off the
phones at the old shelter), staff and families scrambled to move
in the week before we arrived and they got ready for Christmas all
at the same time. In talking with the children it was a beehive of
The tree was put up and decorated. Tables and shelves were
adorned with Christmas scenes the children of Hope had made
the day before. Depending upon whom you asked they were up
until 11:30 PM or 12:30 AM making desserts and snacks for us.
You could tell how proud they all were. One dessert was an
arrangement of cupcakes iced in pink and white and then formed
as a candy cane. And there was enough food plus dessert to feed
us two times over.
Several Maverick members had arrived early to help finish some
projects at the shelter. Bob Lewis hung blinds. Dave and Jean Frick

2006 Holiday Party
Photo by Charlie Davs
by Erika and Joel Nannis
This year’s holiday party was hosted by Bill and Virginia
Campbell at their home in Fort Worth. After driving “half
way across Texas” from Rockwall, we arrived (thanks to
MapQuest). Depositing the toys that we had brought for the Hope
shelter under the tree, I observed that the club was going to make
a lot of children very happy on Christmas Day. Once again, the
Campbell cat and Jean Frick enjoying the couch
club came through with lots of great presents. I am sure that
Lanean would have been proud to see the smiling faces when
the toys were delivered.
Looking around the first thing we noticed was the food that
was catered by On the Border. They had provided a great
spread. Many thanks to Tracey Gross for all her work in setting
everything up which, from my perspective, went off smoothly.
I was able to meet a new member, Russell Millicent, who
has a 911 race car and a 912 for sale. His significant other,
Dossie Post, was very enthusiastic about putting on a rally (Teri,
you need to call her).
Drew, Bill and Virginia’s son, will be graduating college this
year and will then be heading over to England to develop video
games. He will have to go to the conventions and convince
people to try the new games. This sounds like a real tough job
for him. Good luck to Drew. If anybody is going to England,
stop by and say, “Hi.”
Richard Cross was concerned about the weather the following
day because he once again would be riding his Harley
delivering toys. It turned out to be cold and wet but he still was
out there. Ed Mayo was answering questions about how to fix
this or how to do that. I would think that after over 25 years of
asking questions of Ed, he might tell me “ENOUGH”, but he
still answers everything that I (and others) ask.
We did go out and look at Bill’s cars. If people think that
Boxsters are not reliable, ask Bill who has 160,000 + on his with
The Goodie Store had Maverick Region Calendars at the
party, so I picked several up for gifts. If you have driven in the
autocross or time trials then most likely your picture is in the
calendar, so I suggest you pick up one or two. Kevin Hardison
has done a wonderful job on the calendars. Maybe next year I
will make it to a big picture if the car smokes enough on track.
As the night wore down, people said good night and many
left with care packages of food. We left for the trip back “across
the state” with a warm heart having had the opportunity to see
so many friends. I think only Rocky now has a longer trip from
Quinlan than Erika and I, so they had to leave an hour or two
earlier than we did.
Charlie Davis was taking pictures and one day I hope to
figure out how to see them on his website.
Thanks to all who worked so hard to make the party

Meanwhile, all the wonderful homemade goodies filled another
room. Yum! Tracey Gross always seems to be able to have these
affairs run smoothly and her efforts are very much appreciated,
along with all her helpers. Saying hello to everybody and conversing
about (what else?) Porsches was easy with the margaritas
from the margarita machine out by the pool. There were
plenty of other items to choose to drink. Everybody showed
their restraint and knowledge that drinking and driving is
something that we don’t do.

Question and Answer
by Ed Mayo
Question: Bear with me please, I have to "front load" some
information first. My uncle bought a brand new 911 T Coupe
(white / black interior) in 1970 in New York City. In 1975 he
moved to Florida and put very little mileage on the car. In fact, by 1985
he only had 45K miles on it. He kept his car immaculate inside and out
and always garaged. In 1985 however, it was involved in an accident
where the frame was bent. His Porsche Mechanic who had been the
car's "physician" for the last 27 years found him another 1970 911 T
Coupe (Robin's egg blue)that had approximately 111K miles on it but
said the body of the car is "perfect"!
My uncle bought this car and had his engine and drive train, suspension
system, heating system, and complete interior from his white
911 put into this blue 911. When the work was being completed, he
had his mechanic re-build his engine and tranny and a new coat of
paint (Robin's Egg Blue). The car was re-titled under the blue 911 vin
with the engine of the white 911. Since 1985, he has only put 13K miles
on the car. The engine now has 58K and the body / chassis has 124K.
The car is in excellent condition and still runs strong. I now own this
car...been in my family for 32 years.
The question is...What is considered original? It's all 1970 911 T!
What class may I "show" the car? I was considering doing some high
performance work to the engine. Would I destroy any "originality" to
this car considering it's history?
Answer: Well, I hate to say this, but I wouldn't consider that car
original any more. I realize "original" is a fun term you can play
with (the old Grandfather's axe handle" game). The easy
answer is that in preservation class judging at Parade concours, you
must present a cardex. Your's would show a different engine number.
Without the cardex (local low-key concours) it won't really matter.
Yes, it's all 1970 T parts.
If you do any performance mods to the engine that are visable,
then it's obviously not "original". If you do things that aren't visible
then it's between you and your car.

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,
924'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 I Fratelli’s

dressed for the Holidays
This was another new place for
us, which was recommended by
(and also set up by) Tinker
Edwards. At the last minute the restaurant
wanted a specific count from
Tinker, because they were expecting a
full house and wanted to set aside the
right amount of space. Of course, with
Happy Hours, we never really know
how many people are coming. Since
Tinker had no choice except to go on
record with something, she told the
restaurant to expect 45 people. And the
final count was – get this – 44! My recommendation
is that the next time you go to Las Vegas, take
Tinker with you.

to be well-suited for us, with
good food and service, and the
prices were right. I noticed that
a lot of our people were eating
some kind of stuffed artichoke
dish and they all raved about it,

another sign that it must have
