John Hamilton, President
Fall is finally
upon us along
cooler weather. What
a great time to go
for a car ride! That
top can finally come
down, those windows can be opened,
and we can enjoy some fresh air. I
hope you’re taking some time in
your Porsche to enjoy the season!
As we wrap up many of our driving
events for the year, we’ll also take the
time to do a little celebrating. Our
annual Founders’ Day Celebration
(this year celebrating 49 years of the
Maverick Region) is taking place
on Saturday, November 12th at the
Southlake Hilton. Several Porsches
will be on display in the banquet hall,
and you may even spot a 356 or two!
There will be a Silent Auction for
many Porsche-related items PLUS
a fun Casino night (both benefiting
our charity, the Hope Shelter in
Mineral Wells). I hope you have
already made your reservations [mav.
pca.org] and plan on joining us!
Our next celebration is our Holiday
Party on Friday, December 2nd
starting at 7 p.m. at the Clubhouse at
Heritage (where we also hold our All
Member Party at the end of January).
There’s a catered dinner by Macaroni
Grill and lots of camaraderie with
your fellow *Porschephiles. Sign
up by going to our website (mav.
pca.org) and clicking on the link
on the calendar. It’ll be a blast!
Then don’t forget our last Sunday
Drive of the year on Sunday evening,
December 11th for our Christmas
Lights Tour of Dallas. This is always
a special (low-speed) drive, which
is fun for the whole family (so
feel free to bring your kids in the
SUV, even if it isn’t a Porsche!)
I look forward to seeing you at
one of our upcoming events!
Mav of the Month
November’s Mav of the

Rao, our volunteer
Club Secretary, who
presentation of our
Member Survey this
year (you may have seen
his article on the survey
results in September’s
Slipstream.) Thanks to
his efforts, we received
responses from 190 members
(that’s a response rate of over
15%, folks!) with some great
suggestions to help us grow.
We’ve already implemented
the monthly email with the
following month’s events and
we’re adjusting the schedule to
avoid competing events (just
two of your many suggestions.)
Madhu- you’re a forwardthinker
who is always working
on continuous improvement.
That helps each member
get more from the club, and
that’s what it’s all about.
Thanks and congrats,
Madhu, have a great meal
at the Silver Fox!

Chris has been a Maverick for over ten
years and owned a 2000 Boxster S. He
recently sold it with tears in his eyes…
Welcome, dream car; a 2010 Carrera
Cab. Now that the tears have dried up,
he’s having a blast! Here’s to sharing
the fun in our events with many Mav’s
Madhu has been a member of the
Maverick Region since 2009. He and
his wife, Roshni, really enjoy meeting
members of the club at various social
and driving events. “It’s not the
cars... it’s the people” that make this
club great. He is currently driving
a red 2008 Carrera S and loves it!
Please help us to keep growing!
Jim joined Maverick Region in August,
2008. He drives a 1992 968
cab which is the second Porsche he
has owned. Jim has enjoyed
several social and driving events.
Richard Bradley, Managing Editor
It’s cooling off, the Ranger’s are in the
World Series ( I sure want to say they’ve
won, hopefully next month) and we, as
a collective group, still love our cars. Now
it can’t get much better than that! I hope we
all realize how fortunate we are to be a part
of something as grand as PCA and more
specifically, The Maverick Region. If you dare to take a step
and become involved, it doesn’t have to be 24/7. We all
know you get out as much or more then you put in. The year
isn’t over so check out what’s coming up and take your step.
This issue has something for everyone and than some, so
take your pick.
I hope you are enjoying the progression of Slipstream as
it’s morphing into it’s new look. If you have any ideas, I’m
ready to hear them so send me an email at editor@mavpca.
org. I’ve been around creative people all my life and know
greater things come when we share ideas. Drop me a note
and send in your ideas.
To us, the Maverick Region and our 49 years. Get ready,
here comes our 50th!

Madhu Rao, Secretary
and thanked them
John presented the
first update on behalf of
Carey Spreen regarding
the upcoming Sunday Drive Rally
on October 23. According to Carey
the Rally will have several twists and
turns for a total length of about 2
hours. Carey also presented an update
regarding a special guest who will
join us at Founders’ Day this year on
Nov. 12. This guest’s family has a
special involvement with the Maverick
Region. Who is this special guest?
Make plans to join us at Founders’
Day and this will be revealed to you!
The Maverick Region has been very
fortunate to have several guests join us
at events this year. Jacques Krielen,
from Amsterdam, will be joining us at
Founders’ Day this year. We recently
had another guest, David Owen, join
us from Akron, Ohio. He participated
in the May Driving Tour and the most
recent Sunday Drive in September. Go
ahead and raise your hand – how many
of you would love to drive 1000 miles
in your Porsche right now? Apparently
David and another Maverick. You’ll
find out his or her name shortly.
Mike Brodigan reported that
attendance at the September Drivers’
Education event was great with over
75 participants. He noted that plans
for 2012 are in development with
some new twists and turns to keep
everyone excited. These include a
combined 1 day DE and Time Trial
as well as the “buy 3 get 1 free”
promotion for advanced drivers.
Jim Falgout reported that our
financial position continues to improve
and should continue to do so as
advertising and club racing entrance
fees are collected in October.
Robyn Howard noted that the
October 1, Swap Meet at ZIMS
was very successful with over 60
Mavericks in attendance. Apparently
the donuts were well received, too!
Ed Mullenix noted that the
success of the recent Swap Meet
may indicate that two Swap Meets
could be held in a year, one in the
spring and fall? Fellow Mavericks,
what do you think about this?
Pat Friend reiterated Jim’s point
that efforts are underway to collect
unpaid advertising fees. He noted that
revenue from advertisers represents
a significant portion of our budget.
Madhu Rao noted that a full ballot
is in place and that voting for the
2012 election will commence on
October 11th. He is looking into
developing a PDF of the ballot that
can be sent out to the entire region
via email to increase awareness
and interest in the election.
John Harvey described the recent
Boxstoberfest event which was held in
the Hill Country of Texas. Over 100
cars participated in the event; about
half of these were from the Maverick
Region. John also described the recent
Sunday Driving Tour which included
a visit to the Drivers’ Education
session held at Motorsport Ranch.
Over 40 cars made the journey and
several were able to complete at least
5 parade laps around the 1.7 mile
circuit. Fellow Mavericks described
how much fun they had during the
event. About 25% of the attendees
were new to the Drivers’ Education
experience. John Harvey thanked his
co-organizer, Brendan Eagan, for all
of his help with this event. Ditto that.
Brendan Eagan described a new
initiative to introduce the Maverick
Region to new Porsche owners. He
has developed a kit which contains
Maverick Region membership
brochures, a copy of the awardwinning
Slipstream and Panorama
magazines. This will help describe all
of the benefits associated with PCA
membership to new Porsche owners.
Richard Bradley has introduced a 3
column format to Slipstream. This
will enable the copy to be easier to
read wherever you choose to read it!
Wendy Shoffit described the recent
PCA Escape event in Flagstaff
Arizona. Speaking of driving, James
Shoffit her husband and Zone 5
Representative, drove 1000 miles
in one day to this event. I bet he
raised his hand to my question above!
Wendy noted that the event was very
casual and a dozen Mavericks were
present. She is looking forward to the
PCA Escape event November 8-11,
2012, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
This is truly a beautiful place to visit.
Lastly, Wendy described the upcoming
Maverick Region Club Race and the
current registration is at 31 Porsches.
Christy Payne described the
upcoming Autocross & Time Trial
banquet to be held on November
5th at Dave & Busters Restaurant in
Frisco, Tx. Christy also described
that she will be using a new software
system called Punch Bowl to track
invitations and RSVP’s to Maverick
Region events. She noted that the
Founders’ Day event this year will
be sponsored by Autobahn Motors
(thank you!) and will feature a lot of
fun activities. I know I will be there!
Lisa Steele noted with enthusiasm,
a lot of ENTHUSIAM, that our
region membership is now up to 2038
members! Wow! That is a new record
and relates to the initiatives put forth
by the membership team to contact
new and renewal members. She
also noted that a Halloween theme
would be featured at the October
Club Race. Sounds like fun.
Teri and Charlie Davis were
in attendance and described an
upcoming initiative to review the
current Maverick Region badge/
logo and decide on whether it
should be changed/updated. An
idea was raised to form a committee
to review this more formally.
Linda Bambina was enthusiastic
(when is she not enthusiastic) about
the upcoming Founders’ Day event.
She has contacted several previous
Selcer award winners to ensure their
presence (in-person or virtually) at
this year’s Founders’ Day event.
Travis Howard (aka Gridmaster
T) noted that the turnout was very
good at the recent Autocross event
in September and that the October
events should be well attended in
Mineral Wells. He noted the last
Time Trial event of 2011 will be at
Motorsport Ranch on October 23.
Our guest attendee was Ryan Schall
at this meeting. I met Ryan at a
driving event earlier this year. It was
great to hear his perspective on the
Maverick Region. He noted that the
number of benefits associated with
PCA membership is exceptional,
ranging from parts discounts at select
retailers to free event participation
and learning clinics. He noted that
it is sometimes difficult to keep
track of all of the activities. Ryan,
we hear you. Thank you for your
feedback. In August John Hamilton
began a monthly email digest that
lists all of the events on a single
October 5, 2011
“page.” We hear this is making
it easier for our membership.
To this point, please continue to send
us your suggestions via the suggestion
box on the Maverick Region website.
Meeting adjourned 8:17pm.
The Grey Eagle and the Yellow Cabriolet
By Carey Spreen
has attended a
Region’s annual awards
party, knows that, as
part of the festivities, there is a very
special presentation made by the
Region President, known as the
Richard F. Selcer Memorial Award.
As the years go by, and as new members
arrive and long-time members
leave, fewer and fewer of us actually
know the history behind this award.
The plaque on the award reads as
Richard F. Selcer Memorial Award
Superior Performance and Dedication
Maverick Region / PCA
Dick Selcer (as many Mavericks
later knew him in the 60s and early
70s) was born in Georgia and grew
up near Chattanooga, Tennessee.
He was a champion wrestler in high
school, and later went on to own his
own airplane, with which he used to
barnstorm, a popular activity in the
30s. He would travel the southeast
US, participating in flying exhibitions
as well as selling rides in his plane
to folks that had gathered to watch.
Dick married his wife Peggy in 1937
Peggy and Dick in front of the Yellow Cab.
A Brief History of the Richard F. Selcer Memorial Award
in Chattanooga, TN, and they moved
to Ft. Worth in 1940 when he got a
job as a pilot with American Airlines.
When the US got involved in World
War II, he enlisted with the Army Air
Corps, and was stationed in the Pacific
and later in Washington, DC. He was
sometimes assigned to fly high-level
military personnel to wartime conferences
and other meetings. When the
war ended in 1945, they moved back to
Ft. Worth, and Dick picked up where
he left off with American Airlines. Not
long afterward the Selcers had two
children, Janet Lee and Richard, Jr.
In 1964 they purchased a yellow 1961
356B Cabriolet, and the September
1965 issue of Slipstream welcomed
Peggy and Richard Selcer as new
members of the Maverick Region.
They soon began participating in
many of the events that the region
hosted, including rallying, concours
d’elegance, and the occasional
gymkhana. In 1969, Dick was elected
club Treasurer and held that office
through 1971. He is said to have
coined the phrase “We have money!”
which has been repeated in uncounted
Maverick Region Board Meetings
over the years (and in fact to this
day) by his successors. He was also
known for his skill on the ukelele and
other instruments, and sometimes
led impromptu sing-alongs at club
gatherings, including Board meetings!
The July 1970 issue of Slipstream
contained a column titled “Getting
to Know You,” which highlighted
a few “active and outstanding
Porsche enthusiasts,” two of whom
were the Selcers. The column
had this to say about them:
“Dick and Peggy Selcer
are known to all Maverick Region
members for Peggy’s bubbly
personality, Dick’s incomparable
Treasurer’s reports, and their duets
with the ukelele. They drive a ‘61
Cabriolet and Dick especially enjoys
A wave from the past.
working on it now that he has retired
from nearly 30 years with American
Airlines. As an American Airlines
pilot, Dick has flown everything
from DC2s to 707s. Dick has every
Porsche lover’s dream of a garage for
working on Porsches and assorted
other cars. In his spare time he has
been helping Peggy redecorate their
Fort Worth home. Peggy is presently
serving on the Telephone Committee
for Porsche Club, which involves
constantly calling to remind us all
of meetings and events. The Selcers
have two children: a son in college
and a daughter who is married.”
Many would have called Dick Selcer
a “shadetree mechanic.” He enjoyed
working on all manner of mechanical
devices, from cars and motorcycles
to lawn mowers and refrigerators.
Basically he loved to tinker, although
he did not have much, if any, formal
training. The Selcer household always
had several cars and other equipment
in various states of repair. One of
the cars that the family had for many
years was a 1966 Pontiac GTO sporting
a 389, which Dick also loved to
work on. But the 356B was special.
The yellow Cabriolet was not a daily
driver, rather it was used for weekend
drives and club events, and driven
almost exclusively by Dick, unless
one was granted special permission
to get behind the wheel. He was also
known to don his driving cap and
give the occasional ride to the Selcer
family poodles, Ci-Ci and Monet,
who enjoyed standing on the passenger
seat, paws on the armrest, their
tiny tongues flapping in the wind.
When Dick retired from American
Airlines in December 1968, he joined
the association of retired American
Airlines pilots known as the Grey
Eagles. Due to this association he
was affectionately known to some
Mavericks as The Grey Eagle.
At around the time of his retirement,
he began an association with Roger
Chaney, a Maintainability Engineer
with General Dynamics. Roger was
already a long-time Maverick Region
member, and went on to become the
PCA National Technical Advisor for
many years. Slipstreams from the
60s and 70s are chockfull of Roger’s
technical articles, and his expertise
was well-regarded throughout PCA
in general. Roger was, in some ways,
a sharp contrast to Dick; he was a
trained engineer, very meticulous
and precise, who always followed
procedures by the book. But like
Dick, he was an avid lover of anything
Porsche. It may very well have been
Roger who inspired Dick’s pronouncement
one night to the family that
the word “Porsh” would be forever
banished from the household, to be
replaced thenceforth by “Por-sha.”
Roger was thinly built and about 6
feet tall, while Dick was about 5’ 7”
and had the stocky build of a wrestler,
so seeing the two together sometimes
invited comparisons to Mutt and Jeff
or Laurel and Hardy. Whether they
realized this or not is lost to history,
but they certainly didn’t seem to care.
Dick and Roger used the ample dimensions
of the Selcer garage to work
on club members’ cars, as well as taking
on other projects. There was never
any record of money changing hands
for work done, except to pay for parts;
for Dick and Roger, the “labor” cost
was strictly the labor of love. It must
be said that they each had their own,
He was also known to don his driving cap
and give the occasional ride to
the Selcer family poodles...
sometimes very different, ideas about
how a certain project or repair should
be handled, and it was not out of the
question for the neighbors to hear bits
and pieces of a heated argument emanating
from the open garage, followed
by the clang of a tool being dropped
(or thrown) to the concrete floor, and
a moment later, the rasp of Roger’s
Porsche starting up and accelerating
away down the street. Nevertheless,
they would be back at work again an
evening or so later, as if there had been
no disagreement at all. In fact, Roger
was known to show up at the Selcer
door at 7:30 am on some Saturday
mornings, itching to get his hands on
the next Porsche project or repair.
On November 26, 1972, the Selcer’s
son, Rick, was driving from Fort
Worth to return to classes at Austin
College in Sherman, TX. On the way
there he had car trouble and had to
pull over by the side of the road. As
luck would have it, friends of the
Selcer family were driving in the other
direction and noticed Rick’s car parked
on the shoulder. They stopped to see if
he needed assistance, and Rick asked
that if they were headed home, could
they contact his dad to see if he could
help out. They did so, and without a
second thought, Dick drove up to meet
Rick and get the car running again.
As Dick was working on the car, a
passing vehicle veered off the road
and struck him. An ambulance arrived
quickly, but tragically, he died of his
injuries on the way to the hospital.
Eventually, with Dick not around to
maintain or even drive the Porsche,
Peggy asked Roger to advertise and
sell the Cabriolet for her, and of course
he took the task to heart, beating the
bushes for the best buyer, yet asking
for neither a commission nor finder’s
fee when the car was finally sold.
In 1976, two Maverick Region members
collaborated in creating a meaningful
remembrance of Dick Selcer’s
spirit of generosity after his untimely
passing. In the December 1976 issue
of Slipstream, Leon Cowan, who was
Maverick Region President at the
time, wrote this about the new award:
“At the Founder’s Day Banquet in November
a special award was presented
for the first time. The recipient will
keep the trophy for one year, and it will
be passed on in subsequent years. The
award was made possible by an individual
who wishes to remain unnamed.
Each year the President of the club
may select the recipient who, in his
opinion, represents the singular outstanding
performance and service to
the Region. This award will be known
as the Richard F. Selcer Memorial Trophy,
and was given to Charlie Davis
for 1976. Congratulations to Charlie
and many thanks to the thoughtful
person who conceived this tribute.
“Some of us called him Richard
and some called him Dick - but we
all called him ‘friend’. Those of us
who knew him still miss him very
much, although four years have
passed since his death. We were
pleased that Peggy, his widow, was
available to present this award.”
As we now know, the idea for and
creation of the award came from Don
Spaulding, former Maverick Region
President and Zone 5 Representative,
as well as - no surprise - from Roger
Chaney. Don did the graphic design

Don Spaulding recently had
this to say about the original
intent of the award:
“The purpose of the award was to acknowledge

to do likewise, as Dick had so unselfishly
done. It was not conceived as
a ‘Member of the Year’ award. It was
not conceived as an annual award. It
was not conceived as a ‘gimme’ for
serving as Region President. It was
not conceived as just another plaque
for the trophy case. Just a simple
expression as Dick would have liked.”

“PARK PLACE FOUND ME THE PERFECT PORSCHE.
AND A PIT CREW TO MATCH.”
Park Place Porsche Enthusiast
About five months ago, I purchased a 2009 Porsche GT3 Cup Car from Park Place.
Since that time, I’ve been in two races, including a huge event called the Rennsport
Reunion at Laguna Seca.
Park Place found the perfect car for me. They got me and my car set up for the race,
and several of their employees even volunteered to join my pit crew. It just goes to
show that the people are what make Park Place stand out. Everyone up here is my
friend—literally everybody. There’s just nothing better than hanging out with these
guys and talking cars (but don’t tell my wife that!).
I plan to do a full race schedule with my Porsche next year—some PCA races and
maybe some others as well. And you can be sure Park Place will be part of my team.

What’s a DE?
By Mike Brodigan
When I first joined PCA (a long
time ago) I kept wondering
what all the fuss was about.
Why were so many people signing
up for a driving school? Did every
Porsche owner need the insurance
discount, or did they all have speeding
tickets they needed excused?
I finally just asked someone,
and that was when I got hooked
on performance driving.
Drivers’ Education, also know as
a DE, is really a couple of things.
First, and most importantly, it’s an
event where you learn to drive your
Porsche, (or any other car) well. It is
an opportunity for you to explore the
handling of your performance car, and
learn the basics of high performance
driving done safely. Second, for many
of us it becomes a great hobby.
Some of those among us feel “it’s just
not for them,” and that might be true.
If you don’t enjoy the exhilaration of
the power and handling of your P car,
or if you do not enjoy cruising on a
small, winding country road, maybe
this is not your thing. For everyone
else---you betcha! Come out and
enjoy a weekend with us at the track.
Let’s dispel a few myths
about Drivers’ Education.
1. Your car does not need
any “upgrades.” In fact, it is
better if you leave it stock.
2. DE’ s are about as hard on your
car as a pleasant Sunday drive.
3. The only special gear you need
is a helmet, and at some tracks they
will rent you one. A fairly recent
motorcycle helmet is fine. Borrow one!
4. DE’s are not dangerous. You
learn at your own pace with a
certified instructor. We have never
had an injury as a result of a DE.
Your day at a DE event is spent
in three ways. First, you will have
classroom sessions where some very
experienced drivers will work with
you on driving skills. Second, you will
be on the racetrack for four sessions
each day with an instructor by your
side. Finally, you will spend time with
other participants “bench racing” and
generally having a great time. You will
be amazed at how fast you improve.
By the end of weekend, you will
have learned a ton and may already
be addicted to this thrilling hobby.

national web site http://www.pca.org/

Driver Education. Or better yet, just
give me a call at (817) 233-0068. I
would love to give you the scoop.
See ya at the track, Mike.

Escape to Flagstaff
By Frank Briggs
Escape is one of

of activities over an
It originated several
years ago and is an
alternative to Parade for folks who,
for whatever reason, could not make
the trek to Parade. It is so popular that
many members actually attend both.
For five Maverick families, Escape
was a great way to get away from the
HEAT for a few days. Those who made
the 2,000 + mile round trip included
the Koeppens, Staffords, Christensens,
Shoffits and Briggs.
We turned a long weekend into a week
and a half of Porsche fun. While Escape
did not start until Thursday evening, we
decided to leave on Monday, September
12th. Our first day took us to Amarillo.
It was just an overnight stop, but it was
nice that the Ashmore Suites had FREE
adult beverages and pizza for guests
when we arrived. This worked for my
budget really well.
On Tuesday we got an early start to
Santa Fe, arriving at our Hotel (Inn of
the Governors) around lunchtime. We
enjoyed lunch at the hotel and made our
way to the Plaza for some shopping.
The weather was great with daytime
highs in the 70’s. If you have never
visited Santa Fe, put it on your bucket
list. The most beautiful sunsets over the
mountains can be found any time of
the year in Santa Fe. Our hotel was one
block off the plaza and featured rooms
with fireplaces. That is something that
comes in handy with 40 degree nights

show at the host hotel followed by a
welcome barbeque dinner that took
place in the hotel’s main ballroom.
We turned a long weekend
into a week and a half of Porsche fun.
There were plenty of options for tours
during the weekend. They included
Route 66, a tour to some small mining
towns, tours to the Grand Canyon and
a winery tour. We opted for the winery
tour on Friday and the Grand Canyon
tour on Saturday.
Both were excellent choices. The
winery tour included three wineries
by bus. This was a safe way to conduct
the tour, as our first stop was at 10:00
AM. “It must have been 5:00 o’clock
somewhere!” After two more wineries
it was definitely time for lunch.
Saturday morning was crisp and clear
as we drove to the rim of the Grand
Canyon. Our first stop was to take in an
IMAX movie about the Grand Canyon
then on to the real thing. We were
able to view the canyon from several
vantage points and enjoy a lunch in the

additional day of sightseeing.
Should you feel like becoming an
Escapee next year, the tour will be
held in Eureka Springs, Arkansas in
November. If you enjoy driving one of
the best cars made on roads to match,
please consider joining us in mid
November 2012 in Eureka Springs.
Until then… Happy motoring.

Texas State Trooper.
Friday, September 9th dawned
clear and pleasant for our
drive to Fredericksburg for
this year’s Boxstoberfest. Eleven
cars from the Maverick Region
gathered at the Waffle House on US
67 in Alvarado to caravan under the
leadership of John and BJ Harvey.
After everyone ate what they wanted,
we pulled out and headed southwest
for our drive to the hill country.
We passed through Cleburne and
as we crossed the county line into
Somervell County heading to Glen
Rose, a state trooper had a new Chevy
Camaro pulled over for an infraction.
We passed by, well within the posted
speed limit with the Harveys leading
and the Froehlichs last in the sweep
position, secure in the knowledge that
we were not going to fall prey to the
trooper on the side of the road. But
just a mile down the road, there he was
in my rear view mirror with his lights
flashing. So I moved over to stop, but
he went by me so I pulled back on the
road and followed. He did this with
each of the 11 cars in our caravan and
when he got in front of the Harveys he
pulled us all over. What was this for we
all wondered, as Officer Acker talked
with John at the front of the pack, then
collected all our driver’s licenses and
license plate information and let each
of us know that we were all guilty of
not displaying our front license plate.
He sat in his car for half an hour
checking us all out on his laptop while

I think we all saw parts of Texas we
had never seen before. Eventually
we made our way to Llano where we
stopped at Cooper’s Old Time Pit

where you get all the other goodies.
Because we were all hungry when we
got there, I think everyone ordered
more than really wanted, but since we
were on a road trip, we ate it all. It
then took two hand washings before I
dared touch my steering wheel again.
We all waddled out of Cooper’s and
the next morning’s display. So John,
Don Sebert and I went to a local coin
operated car wash I had found last year
and spent a few quarters plus some
tender loving care cleaning up our cars.
After this we returned to the hotel
and guess what, time for another meal!
So those of us who had any room
left to stuff in a few more calories
headed downtown to the Altdorf
Biergarten for a little German cooking.
We had a wonderful meal of a
variety of German delicacies and a
little German brew then headed back
to the hotel for a good night’s sleep.
The next morning, around 8 o’clock,
people started to line up their cars for
the car show. Over 100 cars were there
and they included almost every model
of Porsche road car made since 1950. It
was a mighty impressive collection of
the marque, but true to the name of the
event, Boxsters were in the majority.
We wandered around talking to people
about their cars and drooling over some
of them for the next couple of hours as
we mentally prepared ourselves for the
upcoming drive. Around 10:30 we gathered
for the driver’s meeting. A hundred
cars can not drive in one long line, so
we were divided into 4 different groups,
2 driving the loop clockwise and 2 in
the opposite direction. The route was
similar to last year’s, but because our
group went the opposite direction we
travelled last year, I can’t say if it was
identical and it sure felt different.
Another thing that was obvious was
the devastating effect of the 2 year
drought on the region. Almost nothing
was green and there were almost no
cattle. Near the end of the drive we saw
a ranch with a small herd of longhorns,
but the earth moving equipment was
out trying to dig down to some groundwater
without much luck and I wondered
how long it would be until those
steers went to market. We drove two of
the three famous “Twisted Sisters,” 336
and 337, and stopped for lunch again
at the Hog Pen in Leakey, where 336,
Nothing like hundreds of Porsches...
337 and US 83 all come together. By
this time, the coolness of the morning
had disappeared, we were all well
sunned and those of us with our tops
down put them up for the afternoon
portion of the drive. After lunch
we continued on and after another
100 miles, some of us got lost and
ended up on a shortcut back to
Fredericksburg. We arrived back
at the Hanger around 4 o’clock
and convened in the Officer’s
Club for libations and storytelling.
That evening we all converged for
the awards dinner in the big hall at the
hotel with an island tropical theme. I
had neglected to read about the theme
for the evening in the email that arrived
earlier that week so I didn’t have the
requisite Hawaiian shirt nor was Susan
dressed in a grass skirt. But looking at
the crowd, we obviously weren’t the
only ones who missed the dress info
for the evening. In addition to awards
and door prizes, we did hear a brief talk
by Robert Turner, the author of a new
mystery series whose main character
is a race car driver, that was interesting
eeny, meeny, miney or moe?
the evening’s festivities wound
down, some of us headed to Hondos
in downtown Fredericksburg for some
live music and dancing. Good music,
good beer and a place to dance to a live
band, a great finish to a really fun day!
Sunday morning, we didn’t go on the
special “mystery” tour, but instead
headed back to Big D. It was a great
weekend and I know all who attended
had a blast. So plan to be part of the
Maverick contingent at next year’s
Boxstoberfest the weekend after Labor
Day. You won’t regret it!
By Cliff Blackshear
was thinking about my recent conversation
with Bob Aines and the fact that he
and multiple others were about to embark
on a road trip to Laguna Seca and the
Rennsport Reunion in California. Predominately
early P cars (911’s) taking back roads
all the way out. They are meeting up with
others along the way and planning a great adventure getting
to and from a great event.
This set me to thinking about how roads developed in our
country and how the generation before me enjoyed that period
in time. My dad was totally in love with taking road trips.
I remember as a kid, how we always loaded the car with
provisions and headed out every year on an adventure. The
roads were two lane (yes, I was born before interstate road
systems were invented) and driving these roads required attention
and skill. Passing a slower car on a two lane road
could be a thing of beauty. Set up the pass before topping a
hill and having 10-20 mph higher speed than the slower car
just when you reached the crest of the hill. Slide slightly left
and see what’s coming. Judge oncoming vehicle and make a
move to pass or hit the binders and burn off speed and wait
for next opportunity.

Go further back into road trip history when the auto was
just making its way into American lives and it really was an
adventure. In 1938 my grandfather decided that the family
needed to travel from Ft. Worth to New York and attend the
1938 World’s Fair in the trusty family car.
Now, I know absolutely nothing about the cars of that time,
but I believe they traveled in a Model T or it could have been
a Model A. Not sure. He told me that at least once a day
they would pull over and his dad would look around the side
of the road and find two rocks. Next he would hold one on
the bottom and take the other and beat the suspension back
into good order. I wonder if it was a king and link set up
that required this sort of attention. Tie rod ends? Ball joints
in general? I don’t know. The roads were so rough that the
suspension became too loose after a while. Flat tires were
common and expected. The whole sequence of dealing with
a flat was routine stuff.
He told me about working in a stone factory that cut stone
for various applications (buildings, bridges, headstones
etc.). The saw that cut the stone was driven by a Model T
engine and fueled by natural gas from a pipe coming out
of the floor. It was his first job at 14 years old. The engine
would be started up in the morning and run all day. If it
started knocking, or acting up, they had to shut down the
mill and look for the problem. The bearings failed quite
often under the constant load and there was only time for a
quick overhaul before they would light it up again followed
by more maximum loads all day long.
One interesting thing he told me about was delivering the
stone in the Ford truck of the day to the buyer. The fuel delivery
system to carburetor was so anemic that fuel starvation
was not uncommon. Delivering stone to Dallas from Ft.
Worth required going up “Chalk Hill.” It was so steep that
there was a turn-around area at the bottom and the top of the
hill. They would arrive at the bottom of the hill, turn around
and back up the hill to keep the engine from dying from fuel
starvation. So the solution was to keep the fuel tank higher
than the carburetor. Reach the top, turn around and continue
on the delivery. Believe it or not, this was routine.
I wish I could have grown up in that era. Yet my father
passed along his memories in such a way, that it feels like
Rambling thoughts, eh?
Swap Meet at Zims
By Alan Bambina
Making a swap for cash!
It has been said that “timing is
everything.” The swap meet
at Al Zim’s shop in Bedford
was well prepared for and well
presented. Unfortunately, the Good
Guys Rod and Custom Show at
Texas Motor Speedway was also
well prepared for, with a slightly
bigger advertising budget. This
may have affected attendance.
Nonetheless, the swap meet at
Zims was a blast. I thought I’d
get there early and arrived at 7:50.
Much to my surprise, there were
half a dozen pick-ups and SUVs
already set up or unloading. OK
then, claim my spot and get ready.
Not surprisingly, Al Zim was there to
open the shop and parts department.
Not only did Al supply free donuts
and coffee, but offered an additional
10% off anything you wanted to
purchase from the parts counter. We
owe Al a big “thank you” for his
generosity and allowing us to squat
in his driveway for the morning.
Once there and set up, most of the
“vendors” abandoned their own table
or pick-up bed to check out what
everyone else brought. The entire
idea of a swap meet is to swap your
stuff for someone else’s stuff. You
name the model number, and there
was something representing that
car. 356, 911, 914, 928, 930, 944,
968 and all the rest had parts spread
Photo by Travis Howard
out on the parking lot to display. I
think the most surprising item I saw
was a rear section of a Targa body
sans engine, trans, wheels, paint,
hardware and everything else with
a sign stating FREE. I thought
the sheet metal shell would make
a lovely backyard seat for some
enterprising Porsche owner. I don’t
know if anyone else took it home or it
returned with the fellow what brung
it, but it did attract a lot of attention.
All in all, about 15 to 20 vendors
showed up to sell/trade parts, and
perhaps 100 people were there to
meet and greet, check out car parts,
cars or each other and spend a
lovely Fall morning with friends.
Personally, I sold more old 356 parts
than I thought I would and bought a
few items that, in all likelihood, will
show up at a future swap meet at
Advertiser of the Month: Invisibra
Not all clear bras are created
equal, just as not all cars
are created equal. Norm
Schilling, owner of Invisibra, has the
goal of making everyone aware of
this fact. Paint protection film, also
known as clear bra, is a clear urethane
film designed to make rocks and
other debris bounce off your vehicle
instead of chipping your paint and
has been available for a few decades.
Norm’s entry into this industry 17
years ago preceded the software and
computer designed kits that are so
prevalent today. While having these
computer-cut kits available as an
option, he is better known for having
perfected the “Art of Paint Protection”
with custom installations. However,
his art is as invisible as possible.
“My biggest compliment is when
a customer has to get within a few
inches of their own car to figure out
where the film is,” says Norm. Without
knowing how invisible paint protection
film can actually be, many people
have become accustomed to mediocre
installations and film quality. If you
would be bothered by seeing the edge
of the film on your hood, you may
opt to protect the entire hood making
the protection virtually invisible.
Invisibra also uses the only film in the
industry backed by a manufacturer’s
Lifetime Warranty. This gives you
confidence that no matter how long
you own your car, or where you move,
your car can look as good as the day
you bought it for years to come.
The first time you drove a Porsche,
your level of excellence was raised.
Visit Invisibra and raise the level of
excellence in paint protection.
“I have had four cars receive clear
bra treatment in the past few years
and Norm’s work is by far the best.
I expected good things based on
reviews and cars that I had seen
that he had worked on, but seeing
the work on my own car surpassed
even those high expectations. Norm’s
attention to detail is superlative… I
have honestly never seen as good an
installation as the one he did on my
2011 Porsche GT3 RS… Fantastic!”

attending this month’s
Happy Hour was
not top priority
among our Mavericks, which is
understandable. The good news was;
The Rangers won, the bad news is:
road construction is going to continue
for some time to come. Not only
does construction slow everyone
down, but it can be downright
treacherous when navigating through
it. So thanks to those that did join
in the camaraderie and good food.
We had seven new members join us
this month, they were; Ed Newsom
with the recent purchase of a 2011
911S, Mark and Robin Fider with
a 2011 Cayman, Wes and Natalie
Lincoln owning a 1994 911 and finally
K.Y. and Jill Panayides who take the
top honors with owning a 2009 911
C4S and a 2011 GT3....I wonder if
they would adopt me? Well, welcome
new Mavs. Thanks for joining us and
hope to see you at a Sunday Drive or
Rally or many of our other events,
which can be found on our website
(http://mav.pca.org) or in our award
winning Slipstream Magazine.
So, as time
marches on y’all
may have noticed
that we have not
been to every
Happy Hour and
that is because
we now have a
second home in La
Quinta, Ca. We
have decided to
turn over the Happy Hour reigns to
a very capable Mav whom I’m sure
most know, Mike Farrar. Mike, as
some of you know, owns Ruggieri’s
restaurant in North Dallas. We had a
very nice HH there earlier this year.
What better person to take over HH
than Mike, a well-known restaurateur.
We look forward to his direction and
guidance in selecting great venues in
the coming months….good luck Mike!
Finally we want to remind
everyone of next month’s
HH location, which will be
held at the Blue Mesa Grill,
7700 W. Northwest Hwy.,
Dallas TX. - 214-378-8686.
We hope you will join Mike
and your fellow Mavericks
at this great location.
See you there!
