John Hamilton, President
Region’s 50th year!
Yes, that’s right
Club was established 50 years ago
(December, 1962) by several local
Porsche enthusiasts. And by the
way, the very first Porsche Club was
established 60 years ago (1952)
in Germany. So we’re one of the
earliest and largest Porsche Club
regions. We’ll be having articles
and celebrations throughout the
year, with a special committee
focused on communications and
events for our year-long celebration.
So watch for announcements!
We had a great year in 2011, with
our membership growing to over
2,000 D/FW area members. And
there was tremendous participation
in our many
Day; from All
Member Party to
from Rallies to
May at Mayo’s

Whichever it is,
I’m sure you’ll have a
great time and meet
some new friends. Yes:
it’s truly “not just the
cars, it’s the people!”
Mav of the Month:
Our December Mav of
the Month is awarded
to Christy Payne, for
her terrific service
throughout the year
(and especially at the
end of the year) as our
Social chair. Yes: Christy
is the one in charge of organizing
our parties like our overwhelmingly
successful Founders’ Day celebration,
and our Holiday Party. All who
attended had a great time, and Christy
makes sure it goes so smoothly
(which makes it fun for everyone!).
So thank you Christy for all you
have done as Social chair, and thanks
for continuing in 2012. Enjoy your
gift certificate to the Silver Fox
Restaurant. YOU deserve to be the
“entertainee” for a change.
John enjoys DEs, Happy Hours, the
Porsche Parade, and other social events.
He and wife Chris have owned Porsches
since 1996 and joined the Club in 2002.

Carey Spreen, Managing Editor
year! Huh? If
I called it the
would that help?
Maybe the term Golden Jubilee
rings a bell? I am of course
referring to the fact that Maverick
Region has officially entered
its 50th year of existence.
From a small group of Porsche
enthusiasts that first gathered at the
Arlington Fiesta Best Western Motel
in November 1962, the Maverick
Region of the Porsche Club of
America has come a long way. Our
Fiftieth Anniversary Committee
has already been at work for
almost a year, planning and
preparing for a full year’s worth
of celebration, culminating in a
2012 Founders’ Day celebration
that no one will want to miss! Be
sure to check out these pages over
the coming year to make sure
that you are in on the festivities!
For those of you who noticed the
new name and photo at the top of
this page, you will understand that
I am trying to fill some big shoes
left over by our outgoing Editor,
Richard Bradley. Richard has
been Editor-in-Chief of Slipstream
since the beginning of 2009, and
is stepping down to focus on his
business. Last year, Slipstream won
a First Place in Class V (Regions
over 800 members) in the National
Newsletter Contest at the Porsche
Parade, due in large part to
Richard’s efforts, so I will be doing
my best this year to maintain the
high standards that Richard has set.
Having said that, though, I am
just now recognizing how steep
the Editor learning curve really
is. Richard is actually putting the
finishing touches on this, the
January issue, but I hope to be able
to move into more of a leading
role soon. All I ask at this point
is that you have your cameras
handy whenever you are at any
Maverick Region events this year,
and don’t be bashful if someone
asks you to write an article - we
love new and budding writers!
Now I’d better go work on a catch
phrase . . .

RAC Toy Run 2011
By Donald Rose
President-D/FW Chapter Ferrari Club of America
To all of the members of the
Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter
of the Ferrari Club of
America and Friends of RAC
Performance, including PCA
Maverick members: after a gloomy
and wet Friday and Friday evening,
the next day shone bright for the
7th Annual D/FW-FCA Toy Run.
The ORIGINAL D/FW-FCA Toy
Run opened it’s doors at RAC
Performance at 7:45 AM and we
had people and cars waiting. We
had great coffee supplied by Office
Perks and delicious pastries
supplied by Stratashield Customs
and the people and the cars just
kept coming. We had 100 maps
printed and 1 test print map and we
gave out all of them. Carolyn and I
were in the last group and we ran
with three people that did not have
a map. So by my
calculations we had 105 cars
and about 200 people. The
second page of the map this
year included a RAC
coupon off of your next
service. So by attending the
run you received something
in return. The toy donation
was huge and perhaps the
biggest we have ever
collected. In addition we
raised over $1250.00 for the Collin
County Children’s Advocate. I want
to thank all of you that participated
and if you didn’t or have not
participated in the past please think
about doing so next year. Everyone
had a blast on the run (no drama
this year) and we all had a good
meal and a lot of fun chatting with
To all the boys and girls this Christmas season.
each other at the restaurant. With
the donation that we gave the Justin
Fire Dept., all of us should have had
a good feeling. A whole lot of kids
will have a much happier Christmas
because of your generosity. My

making this year’s Toy Run so

Madhu Rao, Secretary December 7, 2011
like to thank
who wrote the
minutes in my
absence at this meeting. Wendy,
thank you very much.
Meeting began at 7:04 PM.
John Hamilton started it out by
announcing that the National
Awards Chair, Tuffy Von Briesen,
sent all presidents an email
reminding them to start thinking
about nominees for Region of the
Year, Enthusiast, Family, Public
Service, etc. So, he’s looking for
nominations. He also reported
for Christy Payne that we had 104
attendees at Founders Day. We
made over $5000 for the Hope
Shelter, not including the $500+ in
gift cards received at the Holiday
Party, at which there were 64+ in
attendance. We decided to keep
board meetings at Hackberry
Creek this year, but are not going
to have a meeting in July because it
would conflict with Parade. Lastly,
John reported that the Veteran’s
Day group wants us to be yearly
participants. He will keep in touch.
Mike Brodigan announced that he
has more help for DE’s, including
Promotions Chair Pat Heptig.
He also said hat they have a new
one-day event format to couple
with a Time Trial event. The
April DE he wants on the 3.1 mile
track at MSR. To help defray the
costs, he will try to promote more
and include other clubs. Linda
Bambina suggested a women’s only
DE group or mini event, which
Mike will consider. Jack Griffin
also suggested a teen driving
school similar to BMW Club’s
“Street Survival.” That can’t be on
a racetrack, though, and would
be more like an Autocross event.
Luke Edson said that the DE
Equipment is mostly in good
shape, except for needing
some new “whip” antennas.
Jim Falgout reported that we
have money, with over $10K
in receivables and $25K in the
bank. Non-paying advertisers
may be pulled from Slipstream.
Richard Bradley said that
Slipstream is moving right along.
Although he is stepping down
as editor, he wants to share
some new ideas with the next
editor (more about this later).
Chris Christensen noted that
since he is moving, he found
his Happy Hour chair, Mike
Farrar. Replacing Chris as Vice
President is Tom Minnella.
We will miss Chris and Ann.
Tom Minnella received
a flash drive with all the
pertinent VP information
from Chris and is all set.
Jack Griffin reported that he has
no official Concours dates set,
but will work on it and include
non PCA events on the calendar.
Wendy Shoffit suggested the
possibility of having a slightly
more critical judging event,
in case there are more serious
Concours folks out there.
Pat Friend continues gathering
money from advertisers and
is considering writing official
advertising contracts for them to
encourage more timely payments.
Carey Spreen has agreed to
replace Richard Bradley as next
year’s editor of Slipstream. The
only bad news is that now we need
a new Rally chair, as Carey can’t
do both! He has been pairing
up with Sunday Drives, which
seems to be successful. A full time
Rally chair may not be necessary.
Interested volunteers should
contact him at email@example.com.
Brendan Eagan is continuing to
work with dealerships to get them
to include PCA packets in their car
sales. He wants to make sure they
include cars such as Panameras
and Cayennes, not just the sporty
racecars. For Sunday drives, he
continues to find solutions for
navigation systems. John Harvey
has purchased 2 additional GPSes
to help keep the group on course.
They are looking at making a drive
that goes to Meacham Airport
& Museum and ends finally at
Joe T Garcia’s in Fort Worth.
John Harvey mentioned that
the latest Wine Tour and Rally
was a great event. He looks
forward to having a new rally
chair include a Hare and Hound
event possibly in March.
Rick Schwausch is wanting to get
more involved in volunteering for
the club, like his friend Mike Farrar.
He reported for Mike that the
December HH will be at Bavarian
Grill in Plano, January at Wildwood
Grill in Southlake, and February
at Ruggeri’s in north Dallas. The
goal is to have several couples
host a few HH’s during the year to
reduce the burden on everyone.
Linda Bambina reported that the
50th Anniversary events are coming
right along in their planning
stages. She mentioned such events
as a Cinco de Mayo at Mayo’s,
complete with bounce house,
and a return to the Casey’s home
for the Father’s Day Picnic and a
Costume Car Concours. More later.
Lisa Steele was excited to report
that membership continues to
rise. We now have 2074 total
members. The net increase this
month was +22. The membership
committee makes an effort every
month to call new members
to invite them to the Happy
Hours as a jumping off point.
Wendy Shoffit had nothing
to report, but was busily
scribbling notes as a substitute
for absent Madhu Rao.
James Shoffit reported that he
went to Houston for the Lone
Star Region’s 50th Anniversary
dinner featuring guest Vic
Elford. Most regions only
have one main anniversary
celebratory event, but is
impressed that Mavericks are
going all out for the year.
Travis Howard was preparing
for a Saturday Autocross
to make up for the event
that was rained out. Entrant
numbers were low, but he
was planning to promote it
to get more attendees. While he
hasn’t gotten AX/TT dates yet
on the calendar for 2012, he was
working with the University of
Dallas to rent out the parking lots
they own at the old Texas Stadium.
He continues to look for local
venues. Luke Edson suggested a
place in Plano he noticed being
used once for a car event.
John Hamilton adjourned the
meeting at 8:07 PM, after
announcing this month’s Mav of
the Month is Christy Payne!

in the fall.
The leaves have
their fall turn,
freezing nights are more the
norm. People walking the streets
are bundled up, a few hardy souls
sporting tee shirts, and the rest
adapting to the change of season
with more layers of clothing.
Friday was 11-11-11, and most
every restaurant and gathering
place was filled to the brim: weddings
collided with festive gatherings.
Saturday morning seemed
quiet, the town recuperating from
the festivities the night before, the
pace up and down Main Street
ambled along. But appearances
can be deceiving, like the calm
before the storm: the sudden wail
of the all too familiar Porsche
flat six announced the arrival of
an annual event. Sleepy Eureka
Springs was sleepy no longer: she
was up, and like a caffeine-fueled
jolt, wide awake as a steady stream
of Porsches flashed past.
Browns, yellows, reds and oranges;
these were not the colors of leaves
shedding their summer-green livery,
but the color pallet of Porsches.
You could spot a few green ones,
along with black, white and a host
of silver and gray. But those shapes,
a pastiche of color, looked the
same to anybody unfamiliar with
the German marque. For those of
us in the know—356s, 914s, 911s,
996s, 997s, Boxsters and of course
Caymans—flashed past us. We
can recite the differences down to
the smallest details but that shape
is unmistakable: PORSCHE.
This was the seventh iteration of
Porsche Palooza. A celebration
of our favorite cars, punctuating
the end of the year, a last hurrah
before winter closes in. This year, a
record: 205 Porsches attended (up
from 193 the previous year), along
with the 360 owners and guests
who take care of them. There was
a little bit of everything, almost
all the road-going models present
and accounted for. There was
even a Speed Yellow Carrera GT,
which by the way, was AWESOME.
I think for most attendees, the
highlights were the Spirited Drives,
We can recite the differences down to
the smallest details, but that shape
is unmistakable: PORSCHE.
consisting of three courses: War Eagle,
Kings River and Roaring River
routes. Each route was two-and-ahalf
to three hours long. Judging
by the maps, each had a LOT of
very small squiggles on them. What
did this mean? Lots and lots of
turns! For those less interested in
twists and turns and finding out
the proper balance between torque
Time to fuel up...
curve and shift points, there were
two scenic routes: Beaver Dam
and Thorncrown. The meandering
kind of trip, easier on the
senses—and tires. Better for those
who wanted to marvel at the color
of the leaves versus those who saw
them in a blur of frantic motion.
But no matter the route, the result
was the same—smiles all around.
I had planned to participate in
one of the Spirited Drives. But
during a routine oil change, metal
particles in the oil filter media necessitated
the 2006 Cayman S stay
home until this issue gets sorted
out. We took my wife’s car, a 2007
VW Passat. It was very comfortable
on the road and we probably did
arrive more relaxed and less hearing
impaired. That Fabspeed Full
race exhaust sure sounds great
around town and at the track,
but after five hours, it beats you
down. I can only imagine its sound
bouncing off sheer rock cliffs or
swirling among the trees hugging
the road, echoing for miles. Those
in front or behind the CS, either
enthralled or numb. I digress.
The roster said fourteen Caymans.
There was at least one less…
mine. Being a Cayman guy I had
the chance to meet several fellow
Cayman drivers. Bob Smith brought
his 2008 Black Cayman S (CS) and
Joe Gates brought his red one.
Both were properly mod’ed for the
track. I was most impressed. And
most important? They each bought
my book! Yeah, my kind of Porsche
guys. Hope they enjoy the read!
Speaking of the book (The Driver
Book I – Decision by Robert L.
Turner), the organizers let me
set up a table and sell/autograph
books. I got to pilot a tech session,
too. I discussed how to get involved
in blogging, writing and developing
a voice as a Porsche expert (or at
least enthusiast). The fact is, the explosion
of social media means that
the hordes are crashing the gate
of conventional (and just maybe
old school) automotive journalism.
More and more people are adding
their voices to the rich dialog of all
things automotive. Each one of us
brings a unique perspective and
expertise to the party. I encouraged
the audience to get involved.
Topping it all off, the big event:
the dinner/awards banquet. Wow,
it was fun! It was LONG, and I
actually won something: a nice
Wurth tool set. On the Cayman
front, Bob Smith won Peoples’
Choice for best Cayman. Well,
duh! It’s a fantastic car. But bottom
line—the other Cayman peeps
and I—we were there to represent!
The big news announced at
the dinner: No Palooza in 2012.
But we will get Escape, the other
large national Porsche gathering.
And, get this: instead of 200+
cars, they’re expecting more like
600+. So book your hotel early
and make sure you’re registered!
Palooza itself will be back bigger
and stronger than ever in 2013.
Here’s the deal. The Ozark Region
of PCA works very hard on
this event. Leonard and Melody
Zechiedrich and Chip Gibbons put
in countless and thankless hours
to make it happen. They deserve
our thanks and support to keep
events like this happening. It’s
like my wife said: when the event
seems to flow, to run without any
hitch, you just know that it was
well planned, down to the last and
smallest detail. Yep, the Ozark PCA
team planned it down to the last
(and smallest) detail. They rock!
We’ll be back next year for Escape
and in 2013 for Palooza. But next
time in the Cayman S, damn it!

Park Place Porsche Bringing Porschephiles Together
By Chris Harsdorff
Porsche enthusiasts in the
Dallas/Fort Worth area are
finding exciting new ways to
participate in motorsports events,
and are building friendships in
the process. By working through
Park Place dealerships, more and
more owners are participating
in organized “track days” to
explore the true limits of the
Porsche cars they drive every
day. These events are very well
run, incredibly safe and create
a lively exchange of enthusiasm
and friendly competition. Some
drivers have even organized
special private track day events.
Ken Huston, father of Park
Place General Manager Patrick
Huston, organized a private track
event on October 18th at Hallett
Motor Racing Circuit in Jennings,
Okla. Attendees included,
among others, Chris Harsdorff,
M.L. Speer, Charlie Lacy and
Wade Andres. All were relative
strangers just a few years ago, but
after being brought together by
Park Place and their interest in
Porsches, they now participate
together regularly in organized
motorsport events every year.
“We’re just a bunch of guys that
enjoy the cars and experiencing
the level of performance that
they are really designed and
built to provide,” said Andres.
While the guys in the group attend
many big motorsport events each
year, they admitted that a small
event like Hallett can be a nice
change of pace, and a good way
to hone their skills. The event is
set up in such a way that drivers
are grouped according to skill
and comfort level, and instructors
are provided to give advice and
counsel on how best to handle the
track. But more importantly, it’s
a great way to bond with others
who have similar interests.
“It was a lot of fun on the driving
level,” said Lacy. “It’s nice to not
feel the intimidation of going to a
new track with 300 other people.
But it was also a big relationshipbuilder
for everyone involved.
You get to go with 15 people,
and you usually know 10 of them
because they’re friends of yours.”
Lacy, who works in the
motorsports division of Park Place
Porsche, met Harsdorff, Speer
and Andres when servicing their
cars. They all started out as clients
he didn’t know, but are quickly
becoming his good friends.
Harsdorff, Speer, Lacy and Andres and a fabulous weekend
enjoying their cars as well as each other.
“We would have never met if
it hadn’t been for Park Place,”
said Harsdorff. “They have a
great motorsports setup that
connects you with specialists like
Charlie. He works on my car; he
works on Wade’s car; he works
on M.L.’s car. Charlie is like the
hub that connected us all.”
Park Place has now reached out
to Harsdorff, Andres and Speer
to help form the Park Place
Motorsport Advisory Board. The
board will increase Park Place’s
involvement in both amateur
and professional motorsports
activities, in addition to helping
create opportunities for potential
Porschephiles who are looking to
get more involved in motorsports
with the support of organizations
like Park Place. But mostly, the
board will be there to help facilitate
fun, educational events (and
special trips) like the one at Hallett.
“I think if you’re a Porsche owner,
and you really want to appreciate
this car that you’ve bought, it’s
important to take the car to
the track and really learn what
it can do,” said Speer. “I think
you get more out of owning a
Porsche if you really understand
the power of what it can do, and
through that, what you can do.”

Place Motorsports Advisory Board

Region’s Founders’ Day 2011.
You might ask why this year’s event
was so massive. Well, we HAD to
kick off the start of our 50th year
in a big way. If you can believe
it, next year’s event will be even
BIGGER! Go ahead and mark your
calendar for December 1st, 2012,
for our actual 50th Anniversary
celebration. It’s going to be EPIC!
Dick Selcer added a special dimension
to the evening.
So, without going into all the
minute details of the planning
of this event, suffice it to say that
we have a team of people already
working on celebrating the 50th
anniversary all year long. One
member of this team is Linda
Bambina, who decided early on
that we should celebrate the best
of the best of our region at this
year’s event. So, she personally
contacted every single Selcer Award
winner for the past 36 years. One
of them was so hard to reach that
it required a personal visit to their
home for Linda to leave a note
on the door. Seriously? That’s
dedication. Well, apparently emails
and phone calls failed and she is
NOT going to accept failure!
you that the
1 Award for
more than 25 of
the MOST enthusiastic members in
the same room with all the rest of
us car nuts. Topping it off, we were
delighted to meet Dick Selcer’s son
Rick, who truly was in awe of the
legacy that his father passed on. He
gave a most entertaining speech to
the crowd about his dad and how
Porsche affected his life. Very cool.
As if that wasn’t enough, we then
were joined by Steve Krysill, the
regional manager of Porsche Cars
North America. While you might
consider a speech by someone from
PCNA to be dry and uninteresting
(trust me - I’ve been to a few
Parades where I’ve had to endure
some seriously boring speeches),
this was not. English was his first
language, so he was pretty easy
to understand - except for that
pesky Boston accent (Joel Nannis
felt right at home). He showed
some pretty cool videos and teased
about some upcoming news. One
exciting announcement was that
Porsche is getting BACK into
racing, including targeting the
overall win at LeMans in 2014.
Who’s up for joining us for the
Ultimate Sunday Drive to LeMans?
Thanks to the tremendous
sponsorship of Autobahn who
not only provided THREE display
cars (German flag: yellow, red and
black) as well as several fabulous

silent auction items (a set of
Cayenne wheels anyone?), but
they also provided money for the
open bar. Yeah, you read that right
. . . OPEN BAR. I wonder if that
helped to open more wallets than
usual, but I think more money was
raised through the silent auction

House than I’ve ever seen. We had
some amazing contributors for
those goodies (see the complete
list at the end of the column*). In
addition to the silent auction items,
You can see the joy of the evening on Joan and Barry Gibbs faces.
there were also plenty of door
prizes given away so everyone had a
chance to go away with something!
The banquet menu at the Hilton
Southlake was truly one of the
best banquet meals I’ve ever had.
Everything was cooked just right
and the hotel staff couldn’t have
been better. My daughter, Jasmine,
is getting tired of me still talking
about that crème brûlée dessert.
We might have to make a special
trip back to the hotel just for that!
A true honor to be awarded the Selcer Award
on this particular evening.
Oh, you might be interested
in knowing who won the Selcer
award this year. None other than
our illustrious editor, Richard
Bradley! Not only has he done an
outstanding job with the newsletter,
culminating in a first place victory
in Class V in the national contest,
but he’s also really engaged his
daughter, Amanda, this past year
in all things PCA. It’s tough to
get that kind of excitement from
the next generation. He has been
absolutely superb and a true
enthusiast this year, I’m sure you
will agree. We will miss him next
year as he takes a half step back
from the club to focus on business,
but I’m sure he won’t be gone
entirely as he helps Carey Spreen
take over as Slipstream Editor.
Another Maverick Region Award
that is presented every few years
is the Gregg Murrell Award for
driving enthusiasm. This year it
was presented to Bill Miller, who
has been our Club Race co-chair
for several years now. He and Joel
Nannis have an agreement. Bill
is the event chair BEFORE the
event, but once the day arrives,
Joel takes over so Bill can race.
Now THAT’S dedication! Bill is
also moving on this year, making
room for new blood (Pat Heptig)
Mark Hanna always has something in mind...
to take over his spot. I just realized
that our illustrious president,
John Hamilton, gave these two
major awards to people who were
leaving their posts next year.
What’s up with that? Anyway, we
know the enthusiasm from these
two won’t go away; it will just be
channeled into something else. I
know we have a slew of new and
old members in the club willing to
pick up where these two have left
off. Are YOU one of those? There’s
always room on the board for
enthusiastic members. Just ask John
about how you can get involved.
Speaking of board members, we
had a hotly contested election
for the four elected positions.
Returning to their currently held
positions are President John
Hamilton, Treasurer Jim
Falgout, and Secretary
Madhu Rao. NEW to the
office of Vice President is
Tom Minnella. Welcome,
Tom! The year 2012 is
sure to be tremendous
and we’re happy to
have you all lead us.
This night could not
have happened without
the tremendous work by
Christy Payne, Lisa Steele,
Andrea Bell, and Linda
Bambina. A few more of
us pitched in at the end,
but these ladies truly did
the lion’s share. It was an
absolutely amazing event.
Thank you, Christy, for all
your hard work leading
the team! I can’t wait to
see what you all have in
store for next year.

Fun in the Cold
By Tannia Dobbins
Well, you know what they always
say about good things coming
to an end ... so they indeed do
end. Autocross #7 marked the last
of the autocross events for 2011.
Hmmm. Yes, it was indeed an AX
in December! This year was odd to
say the least. You all remember the
drought of 2011 right? How about
the 100 consecutive 100+ degree
days? Of course we all do! (Just ask
my cows who saw their water tank
dry up by the beginning of July.)
However, what you might not have
known that AX7 in December was
the result of a rescheduling due to
torrential rain! Yes, I did say RAIN!
As we sat in the race trailer that
day trying to stay warm and dry,
we really did have this grand
notion of doing a “rain” make-up
day. After all, some people were
actually in the hunt for 1st place
in their class and really needed
to drive! It couldn’t all be a miss
just because of some rain could
it? So, a deal was made that day -
we would scheduled a December
autocross! I even remember Travis
Howard saying that, “It isn’t as cold
in December as it is February/
March when we do the schools.”
We should have known then ...
nonetheless, we booked the lot
and made the announcement;
the game was afoot.
As the time drew closer the doubt
started. Registration on clubreg
was late so we really didn’t have
an idea of who was really going to
show up and, the COLD weather
was here! Yes, was it going to be
how cold that morning? Below
freezing? In Mineral Wells? You
can add the wind to a below
freezing morning and end up
becoming a popsicle instantly. The
feelers were sent out and mild
interest was the response. Whew.
Maybe frozen tundra would have
to wait for inhabitants when we
did the schools in 2012. But ...
what about all those people who
registered before? Time to get
serious and make contact. Much
to my surprise I had a people
calling me right after my email
was sent. YES, we want to run!
It will be three months before
we have the chance again. And
besides, it is supposed to warm
up to the upper 40s (maybe even
the lower 50s) by mid-afternoon!
I was hearing excitement from
Porsche and non-Porsche drivers.
Enough said. Time to get going.
The turnout ended up being light
(yes, it WAS cold that morning).
But the faithful were there and our

numbers were enough to have
the event. Richard Diller arrived
a day ahead of time to clean the
course (Thank you very much!).
Robyn supplied a course map -
loosely based on the AX course
at Parade this year. And, in spite
of the freezing cold, the battery
in the Truxster finally decided to
give in and start for Travis. What
I do remember most from the
day, however, is that everyone that
showed up came to compete - and
came to help! There wasn’t a
person sitting around waiting
to run - everyone was willing to
help get the show started. What
a show it was, too! The course
was a fun one and everyone got
12 runs (except those of us that
were tire challenged .... is silver
stuff showing through the tire a
bad thing? All I can tell is that is
sure makes for a slippery course).
Travis had a special treat for the
fastest time of the day winner
-- both Porsche and non-Porsche
drivers were eligible to compete
for a Maverick shot glass. Odds
favored Dean, and Travis jokingly
started to give it to him at the
end of the driver’s meeting. But
the drivers who came out to a
freezing Mineral Wells came out
to DRIVE. When it was all said
and done, David Whitener ended
up taking the prize. Way to go
David!! (PS - Thanks for helping
setup the course too.) And for
Dean - I completely understand.
Your tires were bigger so that just
meant you had more ice cubes to
maneuver around the course. :-)
I personally would like to send a
big thank-you out to all that
supported Maverick’s AX events
this year. And this goes out to
Porsche and non-Porsche drivers
alike. Without you we do not have
an AX program. Your support,
enthusiasm, and willingness to
come out in spite of the many
obstacles and reasons otherwise
keep me also coming back for
more. See you in 2012.
By Cliff Blackshear
Today I spent
to get a 997 Twin
to remember it has
When you press
the Sport mode
button on the center console,
nothing happens. Problem is caused
by the VIN number being corrupt
and none of the microprocessors
like each other as a result. Tried
simple re-coding, reprogramming
multiple control units, putting all
processors into final assembly mode
(known as Transport mode), then
doing what is called “hand-over”
to activate for road usage. Porsche
Technical is fully involved and it is
just not what any of us think is the
problem. I will get this resolved.
Yesterday I looked at a two-year-old
987 with one of my techs and tried
to figure out where it is bleeding
coolant from. There is a huge build
up of pink crust on the top of bank
one. There is never a drop left on
the floor from coolant leakage.
Seems to only leak when fully
warmed up and running. Engine
will go about three weeks before
losing enough coolant to be below
minimum level in expansion tank.
We let it sit and run in the shop
until radiator fans cycled off and
on indicating maximum heat load.
Then I drove the car around and,
just before bringing it into the
shop, ran at 4000 rpm for a few
blocks then red lined multiple
times. Immediately pulled into bay,
opened engine compartment and
went in with a bore scope looking
everywhere for fresh coolant. Found
nothing. I thought maybe it had a
porous head, yet could not prove
it. It could be a head gasket but the
head gaskets sealing on water cars
has been absolutely bullet proof.
They just do not leak.
I have seen a couple
porous heads in past 10
years on flat six water
cars. It is rare and will
drive you crazy trying to
diagnose. We have pulled
heads and had them
pressure tested. Passed
pressure test at machine
shop. Reinstalled with a
fresh gasket and problem
the head and problem
resolved. In my opinion, when
pressure tested under machine
shop environment, temperature is
too low and vibration is not present;
real world operation is not present
when tested. So I had a decision
to make. Replace the head and see
what happens? This is a Generation
2 Boxster. The engine is somewhat
different. Maybe it is a head gasket.
That is what I thought yesterday.
Then I come in today after letting
the engine sit overnight with 18 psi
pressure on the system, and low
and behold a drop of coolant is
under the car. Coolant was slowly
seeping from a hose connection
to the filler neck mounted in the
trunk. Liquid was running about
18 inches down the hose and
dripping on top of the engine
on the left bank (Bank 1 side or
passenger side). It was something
that was extremely hard to find.
John had a seemingly simply
problem to fix on a 997 Twin today
- a buzzing noise from driver’s door.
Pulled the door panel and noise
eliminated. He insulated areas
where panel clips to door shell and
insulated all main contact points
between panel and shell. The
noise was still there. He hot glued
all panel areas where different
surfaces are joined. The noise was
still there. He replaced the entire
Is It Not Amazing?
Just another day at the shop...
door panel. Noise eliminated.
Weird. He spent a huge amount
of time trying to find the origination
of the sound in that panel.
Meanwhile, I will fill detailed
reports to a group in Atlanta about
such odd issues. My reports will
reach a group of engineers that
will look at every aspect of owner
complaint, cause of complaint,
and correction made. I will file
the reports with photos and date
of manufacture of parts, bar codes
from parts and part numbers.
They will in turn investigate what
they see and forward to Germany
for further investigation. This will
generate better diagnosis procedures
for us, quality improvements
in suspect parts, and/or a slapping
of vendors that manufacture outsourced
parts. On rare occasions
someone on the assembly line will
be tracked down and given some
new direction on their procedure.
Or I will be told we could have
diagnosed in a different manner.
I sometimes wonder what others
think about their jobs. What they
do to earn a living. I love what I do,
yet it can be so taxing at times. I
get up each day and have no idea
what challenge will present itself.

Member Spotlight: Wesley Lincoln
Lisa Steele, Membership Chair
This month, our
spotlight is on
Wes Lincoln. Wes
a Forest Green
Metallic 1994 911
Carrera 2 that he purchased
from a PCA member after seeing
it at High Plains Raceway in
Colorado. Wes has owned the car
for almost 3 months and he has
already driven it 5,000 miles.
Wes began reading Road & Track
in the ‘70s, and it was at this time
that he became an admirer of
sports cars, knowing that one day
he would own his own 911. After
going through many different
types of vehicles like trucks and
SUVs, the strangest and slowest
vehicle he owned was a 1981
Volkswagen Diesel Pickup.
Wes had made many trips to
Colorado, where his dad currently
lives, and couldn’t help but think
that it would be a much better
drive through the mountains
in a Porsche. Wes shared a
wonderful story about his dad.
“We are from New Zealand,
and my dad loved to talk about
four things: hunting, rugby,
cars, and racing. He would
eloquently speak to me about
his racing heroes, Stirling Moss
and Jackie Stewart, and how they
were real race car drivers. His
enthusiasm for cars and racing is
the reason why I started reading
Road & Track as a child.
“The day I flew up to Denver to
pick up the car, Dad and I went
for a drive. Or I should say he
drove and I rode along. If you
ever want to see what a 73-year-old
was like as a teenager, put him in
the driver’s seat of a 911 for the
first time. As I drove home from
Colorado the next day, I could not
help from thinking of the huge
smile that was on Dad’s face as
we sped through the mountains.
I know we are both looking
forward to doing that again.”

warm welcome to Wes and his high
school sweetheart and now wife of
10 years, Natalie, to our Maverick

in Plano for a festive evening of
food, music, and a little dancing.
The restaurant was crowded
as they were hosting several
holiday parties that evening, but
it just added to the festivities.

the atmosphere was lively. We
were entertained by our own Rich

we dined (and drank.) I sat close
to Rich as he was playing, all the
while worrying that he was going

Chicken Dance. I think
I narrowly escaped
that, which was good,
as I had only had one

choice by that time.
