Drifting: When is a Door Not a Door?
By John Hamilton, Region President
Some of you may remember
this old play on words -- the
answer is “when it’s ajar” -- but
it’s a good lead-in to my column
this month. As you may recall, one
of our key results areas is “inclusion,”
which means including
as many Porsche people in our
variety of events as possible. NOTE: That was
not “Porsche Club” but “Porsche” people. This
is not an exclusive club but an inclusive club.
Hopefully, you noticed last month’s article on the
356 Tub Club, and as you turn the pages, you’ll see
this month’s article on the 928 Club. Both of these
clubs are D/FW based, and include many, many
Porsche owners who are proud of their Porsches. I
had the pleasure of attending the 928 Club monthly
breakfast meeting in February (they meet the first
Saturday of each month at Jakes Uptown in Grapevine),
and it was an incredible show of Porsche 928s
and their owners, who have tremendous pride in their
Porsche automobiles. Both clubs supported us by
their participation at our All Member Party in January,
which made that quite the incredible car show!
So watch the upcoming issues of Slipstream
for more articles about the 356s, the 928s,
the 914s, the 924s and 944s and 968s, as they
are all a part of our great Porsche family.
BTW: the real question/answer is: “When
is a Porsche not a Porsche? NEVER!!!”

Time Trial events in Club Registration and then
transfers all the data from the registration computer
into the timing computer before every event. She
greets and checks in all the drivers at the events. She
will make sure she talks to everyone at the events while
trying to make the event as inclusive as possible. She
has organized the Autocross School for the last four
years, recruiting instructors and contacting potential

afternoons riding his bike as a young
kid to the local newsstand to buy and
read everything he could. He now
owns a Midnight Blue 911S and enjoys
driving it in wonderful Texas!

Paul & Veronica Ramos
By Carey Spreen, Managing Editor
It has been a
for those of us
are our daily
drivers. Icy streets
make for a dicey combination. The
last couple of months have been
the time of year when a Cayenne
was the sensible Porsche to drive.
Nevertheless, when the 911 was
new, it ws well known for its prowess
in the snow. A 911T took first place
in the 1968 Rally Monte Carlo, with
Vic Elford driving and Chris Stone
navigating, and a 911S, driven by
Pauli Toivonen and navigated by
M. Tiukkanen, took second overall.
Porsche 911s then proceeded to
take first and second in each of the
next two Monte Carlo rallies, proving
that Quick Vic’s win wasn’t a
fluke. So don’t let a little snow keep
you from enjoying your Porsche,
but make sure you have the right
tires before you venture out!
What kind of tires are best
for Porsches that are driven in
winter? Well, it just so happens
that Porsche AG publishes a list
of recommended winter tires on
their website. This list shows tires
for not only the current models
but for 993s, 964s, 928s, 968s,
944s, 924s, 911s, 912s, and even
914s! Although I can speak from
personal experience that driving
a 914 in the snow, especially one
that has been stiffened and lowered
for autocrossing, is a white-knuckle
ride. With the majority of their
mass right there in the middle, if
they lose traction, they can spin
like a top if the driver isn’t careful!
But now it’s March, and hopefully
the ice and sleet have been relegated
to the weather history books
for another year. And to celebrate,
our first Sunday Drive of the year,
dubbed the Chicken Run, begins
in Duncanville and takes the scenic
route to Babe’s in Cedar Hill.
Also note that registration for
the Porsche Parade, which was
originally set for March 11, has
been postponed to April 1. And
this year’s All British and European
Car Day takes place on May 4.
Finally, I would like to welcome
three new advertisers to Slipstream:
Innovative Autosports (ad below),
Yard Art (pg 23), and The Car
Guy Show (pg 25). Please consider
using their services, and tell them
that you saw their ad in Slipstream.

Gimme a Minute: February Board Meeting
By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary February 5, 2014
at 6:59 pm.
on an incredible
All Member Party, with over 200
people in attendance and who
knows how many cars. We believe
the central location was a big part
of the turnout, as well as grass roots
efforts made by Stephanie Ho,
Andy Kay, and Jack Griffin. Kudos!
The COTA Club Race is going
forward, with all the caveats mentioned
last month being agreed
upon. We need a volunteer coordinator
to get Mavericks to help us.
Contact Linda Bambina or Wendy
Shoffit if you would like to help out.
Although we had some postal account
issues (that will be addressed
after tax season), Slipstream got out
in great time! Many members had
them in hand by the third of the
month. Great job, Carey and all!
VP Gareth Maurice said that all is
going well. Insurance is taking longer
to get, so he asked for chairs to
give him a little more notice. Both
starting and ending locations are
now required. He’s also currently
working on needed Slipstream ads.
Drivers’ Ed Chair Chris Tabor is
ready for the February DE. We had
new DE ads for Feb & Mar events.
He presented the new radios, which
were lighter and more compact. He
attended a Texas World Speedway
(Lone Star Region) DE, at which
he noticed a larger number of
members helping out, even if they
weren’t participating in the DE.
He asked for more board members
to come to socialize and answer
questions, particularly Saturday
mornings. A suggestion was made
to have special shirts to be visible?
It’s under consideration.
Rally Chair Don Sebert reported
that there are plans for a morning
rally in July, with a social lunch
afterwards. Details TBD. Send fun
rally ideas to Don or Carey Spreen.
Social Chair Tracy Robertson
reported that we sold over 200
raffle tickets, which will allow us
to make a donation to the Hope
Shelter. The winners of the raffle
were Kyle & Debbie Fahrenthold,
gracious hosts of the Cars & Cattle
event last year. Congratulations!
We also had great warm up prizes,
which she hopes to continue next
year. She thanked all her helpers
who made it happen! Next year it
was suggested we could look for a
sponsor to help defray costs. She
wants to stay at Hackberry Creek
Country Club and work with them
on their fees, as well. All agreed
we should stay there next year.
Treasurer Jim Falgout reported
we have ~$60K in bank accounts,
including some large outgoing deposits
that have been made, including
COTA. We are in pretty good
Editor Carey Spreen said that
although Slipstream got to the
mailer later than hoped (still working
on improving the processes),
it was still earlier than “normal.”
We may need to increase the
number of issues printed. He also
encouraged ALL event chairs to
contribute past event articles.
Ad Chair Pat Friend announced
a new full page advertiser, Yard
Art. He encouraged everyone
to support our advertisers.
Tech Chair Ed Mullenix said
that the tech session on the IMS
Bearing replacement had good
turnout, despite chilly temperatures.
Although he had a snafu
with the display car’s engine having
already been replaced, he had a
backup plan that worked just fine.
DE Registrar Wendy Shoffit announced
the Green and Blue
run groups were full for the Feb
DE and good attendance in the
higher groups. She is revamping
the emails to entrants, including
more useful information
than in past. We need COTA
volunteers to help out in May!
Sunday Drive Chair John Harvey
has set up a tour for March 16
called the “Chicken Run,” starting
in the Cedar Hill area. He is also
working on one for Saturday, April
26 to Muenster for Germanfest,
which might include a Parade of
cars. May 25 is slated for a drive to
Lake Texoma and a re-visit to the
Point Restaurant at Grand Pappy
Point. Working with Gareth on
ads and insurance. He now has
six drive leaders to make tours
safer and more manageable.
Calendar Boy Brendan Eagan is
staying on top of the web calendar.
If chairs want to send links to upcoming
events or past event photos,
he can include those.
Monthly Dinner Social Co-Chairs
Paul & Veronica Ramos said the
March event will be at Tolbert’s
in Grapevine, per a member
suggestion. They’re also looking
at possibly holding one at Hackberry
Creek Country Club. They’re
moving these events around the
metroplex and taking suggestions.
Membership Chairs Tom & Susan
Froehlich were happy to report
a new all-time high of 2,296 total
members, a net gain of ~30 this
month. With help from others they
are contacting non-renewals to help
with membership retention. That’s
where we have the most influence.
Swap Meet Chair Robyn Howard said we’re all set for
the Zims Swap meet October 18.
AX & TT Chair Travis Howard announced that Dallas
Raceway had been sold and will be turned into a truck
junkyard. He had to cancel events planned there
and move them where he could. AX #1 will now be
March 2 at Pennington Field in Bedford. He’s working
with Jim for deposits and Gareth on insurance.
PR Chair Linda Bambina is happy with her PCA
National Enthusiast of the Year entry for Travis
Howard. She got much help from wife Robyn.
She has more “Garage Glimpses” articles coming,
but is looking for great subjects to feature.
Member Michael Vatter was in attendance and
suggested that all new members be contacted by
phone to invite them to upcoming events and answer
questions. John Hamilton had done that for
him, which made a great impact. Stephanie Ho
currently emails new members to invite them to
the monthly dinner social and is having great success.
Past phoning efforts have been less fruitful.
John Hamilton lastly announced Robyn Howard as the
next well-deserved Maverick of the Month! Congratulations,
Meeting was adjourned at 8:26.

Destination Restoration: What, Where, and How to Search
By Ash Seidl-Staley
Recently I was emailed by a
fellow Maverick member who
asked about my online search
techniques in relation to Porsches. We
live in an age dominated by the Internet;
anything and nearly everything
can be found with the power of a
modem and the click of a few buttons.
But what about using the Internet to find Porsche
parts? Is there an easy way to search online,
or at least to find a site that connects you with
people that are experiencing the same issues you
are facing with your own car? The unfaltering
answer is yes. There are tons of sites related to
our cars, each with their own perks and uses.
When I search on the Internet for anything, be
it a part or an issue, the first thing I do is “Google
it.” I know that this saying is a cliché for my generation,
but I can’t deny that the Google search engine
directs me to the top three sites I view most often.
The first site is www.porsche.com, the Porsche AG
website, and after surfing a bit there (i.e., building my
Photos by the Author
dream GT3), I can be directed to the PCA website,
www.pca.org. From there I can access all of the technical
issues submitted and posted in the PCA archives.
This site is perfect to check on specific model recalls,
issues with the newer cars, and all the Panorama
Tech Q&A submissions. One of the most important
resources on the PCA website, often ignored, is the
telephone number list of the tech experts. Most
members don’t realize that when they are faced with
vehicle emergencies or other obscure issues, they
can pick up their phone and talk with a specialist
right away. Nine times out of ten, the information
can be found through extensive Internet searches,
but having a friendly Porsche Gearhead on the line
provides instant feedback and soothes the nerves.
Googling a problem also brings up hits to links that
other people have posted, oftentimes being the exact
question I had to begin with. Thanks to the recent
resurgence of restoration projects across the United
States, there is an intense desire to preserve Porsche
history. As a result, various websites have popped up
to provide a foundation for parts catalogs and forum
discussions. My favorite (and probably most used)

site is www.pelicanparts.com. After
registering and creating a username,
I get unmatchable access to
all things Porsche. My resources
include access to technical articles,
the ability to connect with thousands
of Porsche Gearheads, and
the ability to buy and sell parts in
the website’s classifieds postings.
With a few clicks of my mouse
I am immersed into a thriving
Porsche economy that can tackle
any customization, modification,
or problem relating to my cars.
Suspenseful page turners
Another site similar to Pelican is
rennlist.com. Like Pelican, it has
access to forums and discussion
boards, but this site takes things
further by splitting each model
into separate searchable categories.
What makes rennlist.com even
more unique is that it breaks down
each individual 911 model into
smaller groups. This makes it easy
to inquire into and search on a
specific question about a 993 fuel
leak or a GT2 suspension upgrade.
Lately I have been using another
resource for my mechanical questions:
good old books! There are
tons of literature out on the market
that relate to Porsches -- histories
of the cars, model overviews, and
technical specification books
flood mechanics’ bookshelves.
In my opinion, having the Haynes
manuals and specification books
for your specific model are a must,
but if you own an older 911 or
914, there are three books you will
need to add to your collection. The
first two, “101 Projects for Your
911,” and “How to Rebuild and
Modify Porsche 911 Engines,” by
Wayne Dempsey, cover practically
everything you might do or want
to do with your Porsche. And the
third, for 914s, is Tom Wilson’s
book “How to Rebuild Your Volkswagen
Air-Cooled Engine.” I have
spent, and plan on spending, many
nights studying and reading these
books so that I am ready to act on
any mechanical issue or desired
modification relating to my cars.
Prescriptions for 914 illnesses
I also want to stress that not every
issue a Porsche faces can be diagnosed
or solved with a book or the
Internet. Many of the newer cars,
with all of their computer technologies,
require service and inspection
to take place at a dealership or
certified Porsche mechanic. For
example, problems with the complex
M96/M97 engines (used in
Boxsters, Caymans, and 996s) can
be determined by the owner, but
unless he is fearless and ready to get
dirty, need to be fixed by professionals.
Not all of us can be Gold
Meisters, but with properly applied
determination, calming patience,
and intense motivation, we can

Garage Glimpses: Double Your Pleasure -- Porsche and Corvette
By Linda Bambina, Region PR Chair
Chris Sorrells began building
his dream garage in his head
years and years ago. He finally
built it for real about three years ago.
Finding the perfect lot -- in a perfect
location -- was just part of the journey
to the stunning home that Chris
designed and built with the oh-socapable
input from his dynamic wife, Gabe. Chris is a
Developer/Contractor, although in semi-retirement
Their ‘58 and ‘14 Corvettes share space with a ‘13 991

thought out. My photos just give you a broad, sweeping
view, but there are so many interesting details
-- it is amazing and joyful! That’s it! This garage is

joyful! Talk about
Boys and their Toys!
Chris knew he’d need
a lift, since he’d have
several “toys” in his 30
x 40 foot space. In 2003
he had gotten a brand
new C-5 Corvette and
promptly joined that
club. True to form,
Gabe totally immersed
herself as Social Chair of
that very active group.
Gabe and Chris Sorrells Chris got involved
with the National Corvette Restorers Society after
he acquired the 1958 Convertible C-1 (283 cid/245
hp, dual four-barrel carbs) that now rests on its lift,
surrounded by all kinds of awards and trophies won
from coast to coast. Red and White Dynamite.
The Sorrells always
had another sports
car on their bucket
list: a Porsche! Gabe
simply fell in love with
a 2013 911 S Cabriolet,

burgundy called Amaranth
It’s “her” car now. So
of course, for Chris’s
birthday (“AND anniversary
present for the next The toolbox hints that this
decade,” says Gabe!) garage is not just for show.
she bought Chris his
latest heart’s desire, a totally spec’ed out 2014 Torch
Red C-7 Corvette Stingray. (Not “Rocket Red”?)
Chris emphasizes that it is a terrific working garage: a
great place to detail a car, easily cleaned, has a built in
compressor, plugs and hoses in all the most convenient

Annual All Member Party: New Location and Record Turnout!
Photos by Charlie Davis, Linda Bambina, Gareth Maurice, and David Robertson
Maverick Region’s All Member Party (known in
days gone by as the New Member Party until
it dawned on us that only new members were
showing up!) broke all attendance records this year.
For the last few years we had held it in the Keller/N.
Fort Worth area, and often got over 100 attendees.
However, this year, we no longer had access to that
facility, so Social Chair Tracy Robertson moved it
to Hackberry Creek Country Club in Las Colinas,
where the club holds its monthly board meetings.
This turned out to have been an insightful move, as
Las Colinas is more centrally located for our members.
As a result, over 250 new, old, and potential
members RSVP’d for a gorgeous afternoon of food,
beverages, friendship, and of course, Porsches!
You probably know that we held a raffle this past
year, selling the chance to win a one-year lease on a
new Macan S, with a portion of raffle proceeds going
to our charity, the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House.
The All Member Party is where we drew the name
of the lucky winner, Kyle Fahrenthold. Kyle and
wife Debbie are no doubt counting the days until
they get the keys to Porsche’s latest new model.
We hope you were able to make it! If not, here are a
few photos to remind you not to miss it next year.

Insurance Tips: Am I Covered While Driving On-Track?
By Ryan Staub, Lockton Affinity Motorsports, and Kansas City Region PCA
Editor’s Note: Ryan Staub is the
Motorsports Practice Leader at Lockton
Affinity Motorsports. He has been
participating in autocrosses, HPDEs,
and Club Racing since 2001. Staub instructs
with PCA, BMW CCA, ACNA,
and many other organizations. When
he’s not at the track, he’s developing
and managing insurance solutions for
the motorsports enthusiast community.
the years, PCA has earned a
tremendous reputation for putting
on educational, safe, and
structured events. These events
target what PCA members are
most passionate about – appreciating
the fine automobiles they
own in a way that just can’t be
recognized in daily street driving.
For many years, PCA driving
enthusiasts had a sense of comfort
knowing that their standard
auto policies covered them while
participating in PCA Drivers’
Education events. Most policies
had language that only excluded
coverage while participating in
“timed or competition events.”
Since PCA DEs are educational in
nature and untimed, most insurers
would pay for damages incurred
at these events. Incidents causing
damage to vehicles at PCA DEs are
rare, but when they do happen,
the damage can be significant.
Around the 2003-2004 timeframe,
it seems that many insurance
underwriters recognized the
additional exposure presented by
individuals involved in DEs, and
modified their exclusions section
accordingly. At the beginning, a
few companies implemented new
language to exclude coverage “on
a surface used for racing”, “in a
performance driving event”, or
even worse, “at a racetrack facility.”
Since the initial rollout of the
exclusions, it seems that the majority
of auto insurers have followed
suit with these restrictive exclusions
for individuals involved in DEs.
Around the 2003-2004
timeframe, it seems
that many insurance
the additional exposure
presented by individuals
involved in DEs, and
modified their exclusions
Many PCA DE enthusiast members
have researched this topic in the
past, prior to 2003, and believe
that they are still covered while
driving in events. Enthusiasts
must understand that insurers do
have the ability to change policy
terms at each policy renewal. The
typical policy holder receives their
renewal, looks at the bill, and sends
a check to renew their policy. In
the pages following that bill, insurers
include a coverage update that
details any policy changes. Unfortunately
these changes often go
unnoticed by insurance consumers.
For individuals involved in DEs,
it is very important to review
your policy before you go to your
next track event. Many insurance
consumers don’t file their current
policies, but insurance agents will
always send a copy of the current
policy upon request. A quick review
of the exclusions section of the
policy typically reveals any language
targeted at eliminating coverage
while participating in events held at
racetracks. Enthusiasts’ vehicles are
often the most treasured property
they own, so it is important that
they do their research and understand
whether coverage is included
under their standard policy while
participating in DEevents.
DE Participants that do not have
coverage under their standard
auto policy, and who aren’t willing
to take the financial risk of driving
on track without coverage, do
have options available. PCA has
partnered with Lockton Affinity
Motorsports and endorsed their
HPDE Insurance. The PCA – HPDE
Insurance Program offers singleevent
physical damage insurance at a very
affordable rate. The premiums are
based on value, and the average
premium for our members is $205
per event. When applying, PCA
members can enter their member
number to receive up to a 10%
discount on their premium!
Do not assume that you still have
coverage while participating in DEs
based off of research or questions
asked of your agent years ago.
Before your next event, check your
policy and go to that event knowing
whether you will or will not be
covered in the case of an unfortunate
incident that causes damage to
one of your most prized possessions.
If your research shows that
you do not have coverage, consider

Of Special Interest: The DFW 928 Owners’ Group
By Andy Kay, Region Concours d’Elegance Chair
Back in the early 70s, concern
was rumbling in the
offices at Porsche that the
venerable 911 would not meet
the new stringent emission standards
about to be imposed in the
USA. So the 928 was born, a clean
sheet design from the ground up,
something never done solely by Porsche before.
The 928 was a true high-speed GT in every sense of the
word. In Europe, the task was to cruise the Autobahn
all day at 120 mph and compete with other modes of
transportation. The 928 was launched in 1978 and immediately
won the coveted Car of the Year award.

With over 400 928 cars in the DFW area, the DFW
928 Owners’ Group has become one of the largest
local 928 groups in the USA, if not the world.
The group meets the first Saturday of the month
for a breakfast get-together at various venues
around the DFW area. It is not unusual to see 20
to 30 gleaming examples of this marque at each
meeting. Tech sessions often follow the breakfast
meetings, covering topics ranging from changing
the timing belt to electrical troubleshooting.
The social aspect of the DFW 928 group is very
strong, with many local functions being planned
during the year. The group is informal from a
membership point of view, and all are welcome
to attend. Ownership of a 928 is not required.
Details of meetings and events are posted on
the DFW Yahoo group, as well as the website of
928sRus, http://928sRus.com. Send an email to
Laura@928sRus.com to be added to the mailing list.
Every year in November, up to 70 928 cars attend the
famous “Third Coast” get-together, held in Marble
Falls, TX. This year is the fourteenth anniversary of this
event, and again 928 owners will attend from all over
In 2009 the DFW group hosted the 928 International
Owners Club here in Dallas, and 928 owners from
all over the world attended this prestigious event.

Cliff’s Ramblings: Track Rats and Real Rats
By Cliff Blackshear
Ya know, I have come to the
conclusion that rodents have
great taste in cars. We are once
again seeing a number of cars
with problems caused by rodent
invasion. The colder-than-usual
weather that we are having seems to
have driven rats to look for a new
warmer home. 911s are their favorite Porsche.
I know from experience as a dealer level tech
since 1972 that the 911 is a car that is often bought
and only driven on weekends. They often do not
move from a spot in a garage for weeks. The little
creatures simply see a new home sitting there.
Many rodents and insects are suffering in this
weather. Their nest is not keeping them comfortable,
so they are in the market for a new home. The engine
compartment is enclosed, and has limited access with a
nice open space under the intake manifold for a nest.
Four cars came into our shop recently within a twoweek
period of time -- three 911s and one Boxster.
Their check engine lights were on, and their fuel/
ignition software was defaulting to an emergency
run program due to input data degradation. Horsepower
and torque were cut by 50-70 percent.
Twelve 911s had to have their engines removed and
new engine wire harnesses replaced. No Boxsters were
attacked. A few Cayennes had minor damage. It was
interesting. They all seemed to attack exactly the same
wires: the +61 exciter wire to the alternator, the wires
going to the oil level sensor, and the vacuum lines in
the immediate area. It seemed that these wires impeded
proper nest-making real estate. The Cayennes
suffered a small amount of firewall insulation damage
in the engine compartment on the driver’s side.
Over the years, I have observed that another constant
area of invasion has been around the pollen
filter/battery mounting area of 911s and Boxsters.
We find nests around the pollen filter, and occasionally
holes in the filter, with subsequent damage to
wiring under the dash. They also get to the wiring
for the fuel pump and fuel tank level sending
unit, which is immediately below the battery.
Please bait around your garage area.
Some years ago, when the 997 had just been introduced,
my workshop experienced a weird event.
Across from our building is a huge field. About
seven tenths of a mile up from us, Walmart bought
a number of acres of land and built one of their
super large stores. Displaced rodents migrated to
my world looking for a new place to nest. In the
parking lot at the front of our building we had
many 911s, Boxsters and Cayennes—all new cars.

Moving on . . .
I’m pretty excited about this year’s Club Racing
events. I missed going to Sebring in February -- I just
could not make it. That track is brutal on the cars,
and since it is an early race in a new season, it seems
that drivers really get amped up for it. Lots of carnage
and damaged equipment this year. I wish I could have
been there. I spoke with the esteemed Mr. Shoffit
today about the race, and he verified everything I had
heard. Both he and Bernard Nussbaumer were lucky
enough to have both survived and finished well.
Easy events to which to travel are looming: Hallett,
Texas World Speedway, and Eagles Canyon Raceway
for example. The really big one is going to be COTA
(Circuit Of The Americas) over May 2-4. For those of
you who usually attend Sunday drives, social events and

I Get Around: My Parents Bought a New Car
By Dick Badler
Courtesy High Gear, the Rocky Mountain Region Newsletter
They bought a new car last
summer. You have to understand:
they’re 87 and 85.
My father had a stroke a year and a
half ago. Nothing cognitive, but he
can’t drive. My mother only drives in
daylight. This past fall, they moved
into an assisted living complex.
I have this vision of my parents coming into the
dealership showroom: my father holding on tight
to his walker, with my mother making her way, following
knee replacement surgery. The salesperson
doing a few double-takes and finally getting out,
“Uh, can I help you?” and “What color do you like?”
and “Do you have a trade-in?” and “Lease or buy?”
They’ve never owned a Porsche. The closest
they came was in 1983, when they bought a ’78
Mercedes-Benz 450 SL. My father had been pining
for one for years. This one I found for them
-- same year as my SC. Same low mileage. Silver, with
the dark blue soft top. I called them up and said,
it’s now or never. They called it their “SL-ela.”
They kept it for about ten years. The standing joke
was that they were going to give it to my wife when
they grew tired of it. Or at least sell it to her. But
then, one day, my father told me they traded it in on
a Lexus ES. I told them they’d regret it. They did.
My fondest memory is of the ’62 Buick LeSabre. We
went cross-country in it, my two sisters, my parents
and I, New York to LA and back, in five weeks. No
air. I got the worst case of chapped lips in recorded
history, from sticking my head out the window -- like
a dog -- and then moistening my lips with my tongue.
Over the course of the trip, I rated my parents’
driving. Turns out, so to speak, that my mother
was faster. To pass the time, I played chess with my
father, using one of those portable sets where you
push the pieces into holes. It was the only time,
ever, that I sat in the middle, between my two sisters.
My usual place was behind my father, natch.
My father drove home for me my first sports car. It
was a ’64 Triumph TR-4, which I bought from a family
friend for $800, my life savings. I was 17, and couldn’t
drive a stick. That night I just sat in it, and played
the radio. The next day, he took me out to learn the
wonders of British gearboxes and friction points. At
one point I lurched it so hard the fuel lines came off
the carburetors. I lost half a tank of gas before we
realized where that funny smell was coming from.
Then there was the ’67 Buick Wildcat. Convertible.
My parents let me drive it into New York City the night
of my senior prom, to the Village, to see B.B. King at
the Village Gate. I remember who I took as my date,
and I remember a second couple, but I don’t remember
who the third couple was. It was that kind of night.
My parents took me to college in that car.
When my first daughter was born, my parents drove
up from Virginia in a Honda Accord. I remember
my mother rushing into the hospital, carrying a
pair of binoculars. She said, “You never know how
far away from the window they put the babies!”
In recent years, my parents had a 3-series
BMW wagon, which was great for trips from
Virginia to Florida for the winter, including a
ride on the car-train. Except my father totaled
it one morning. Ran into a tree. Don’t ask.
So they replaced it with a Cadillac CTS wagon,
which they hated, because of what they claimed
was bad three-quarter rear-view visibility.
A few years ago, I got my father a gift subscription
to Car and Driver magazine. I took advantage
of one of those “renew now and give a new
subscription to someone as a gift” deals.
It became a routine, during our weekly telephone
conversations: “What do you think I should replace
the Caddy with?” I didn’t know how to answer. So I
turned it around and said, “What do you want?”
Toyota Avalon, he said. The perfect appliance,
I said. But it takes regular gas, he said.
How about a Hyundai Genesis? Hmm, I said. It
may out-Lexus Lexus, the way Lexus out Mercedesed
Mercedes, at least for the money. Does it
take regular gas? That’s what they bought.
I visited my parents for Thanksgiving last fall. I drove
the Hyundai, and it really wasn’t bad. In fact, it really
was a lot like a Benz for, what, two thirds the price.
But the real joy came when I programmed the in-car
Nav to get to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving Dinner.
The house is some seven miles away and, really,
over a route that’s not that complicated. But so be it.
We tested the Nav on Thanksgiving Day, and it worked.
Let me put this into perspective: my father is an
Electronics Engineer. To this day, he can explain to
you how a computer works. Or a television. He used to
argue how Plasma technology is inherently much superior
to LCD. And so was Betamax. Around when I was
born, he worked on the development of the LP record.
But, as I was programming the Nav, he was gently
pushing toward me the never-opened, inch-thick Nav
manual, which I simply ignored.
But my real mitzvah was programming the Nav to get
. . . home. To quote my mother, “Now we won’t get lost
Yikes. So many memories. So many drives to look forward

Maverick Monthly Social: Wildwood Grill
By Stephanie Ho, Monthly Social New Member Welcome Team
Birds of a feather flock together,
and so do Porsche
car enthusiasts! We had a
great start to 2014 with our January
Maverick Monthly Social. Lots of new
members showed up to meet us at
the Wildwood Grill in Southlake.
This was the first Monthly Social
for Bill and Jennifer Coutts, who then went to our
All Member Party too. Steven and Brenda Cloutier

Breda Shelton, Michelle Bey, George Shelton,
and Region President John Hamilton
have been members since August, and this was also
their first Monthly Social. George and Breda Shelton,
along with their niece Michelle Bey, had just left their
grandson’s birthday party before joining us for the
first time. They have been members since October.
George had recently made a memorable purchase
from Autobahn Porsche, where Region President John
Hamilton helped with George’s selection of a finelycrafted
and luxurious 2013 Panamera for his family.
Also attending their first Monthly Social after joining
our club in November were Brooks and Kim Poland,
and Barry and Cindy Goodson. Barry’s nickname is

David Ward joined the club in October, attended his
first Monthly Social in November (the night of a storm),
and has since then attended many if not all of our social
events, including the Holiday Party and All Member
Party. So did Ben and Sue Connell, who became our
Monthly Social regulars.
Our Maverick Region Porsche Club has many wellorganized
and fun activities. If you haven’t been to a
Monthly Social, or just haven’t been to one recently,
come on out and join us. We cordially invite you to be
members of our Porsche Monthly Social flock! We start
with drinks and some of us stay for dinner. This
month’s Social will be at Tolbert’s Restaurant in
Grapevine -- another new venue for us.

rarely Club Races? Come out for COTA -- it is an amazing
track. FIA-sanctioned tracks are the best of the best,
and very rare on this continent. This one has lots of
elevation changes and is super smooth and technical.
Sebring is currently the most heavily-attended Club
Race of the season. When you arrive the day before
Test and Tune starts, you will see a gigantic number of
18-wheelers filled with amazing Porsche race cars. It is
an awesome Club Race. This is a good spectator event
in my opinion. Porsche Motorsports shows up, Michelin
shows up, and you can watch the races on line.
COTA is going to match that event as time goes
by. Right now every racer wants to taste that track.
When they do, they want to come back. The atmosphere
is electric. Austin is such an interesting
city. Food is awesome, and found in so many little
nook and crannies that are interesting. Many of
our Maverick family have a hand in making the
event happen. I view it as the perfect storm for Club
Racing. FOLKS, IT IS IN OUR BACKYARD!!
I will be there working technical inspection. My oldest
daughter will be there doing photography duties
for me. She has amazing photo skills. Her work has
been shown at galleries in Austin. She is currently
learning new skills from a Professor that is the official
photographer for COTA. I am soooooooo stoked . . .
More thoughts: the new GT3 is amazing. In the past
it was simply noisy and rough on public roads, with
an engine that was more than happy at its 8-grand
redline. A super fun car to drive. Now it has PDK with
programming that hates civilian street driving. It is set
up for serious performance. Jeez, what a cool car! The
new twin-turbo 911 is just ridiculous with performance
abilities. Go drive a Cayenne and you will never want
to own any other Sport Ute. The Panamera looks like
a beached whale to me and yet when I drive one it
simply amazes me. There is no four-person people
mover that does what it does; it is a phenomenal car.
The Cayman and Boxster are ridiculous with performance.
With some more horsepower, the Cayman
could have possible performance numbers that would
be way beyond 911 capabilities (my opinion) . . .
In my forty-two years working at the dealer level,
watching the new models come out, it never gets
boring. Walking around the shop, stressing over
weird issues, conversing with factory folks, and the
most fun part? Interacting with all of you . . .

©2013 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times. Porsche recommends four winter tires when driving in cold, snowy, or slippery conditions.
Simultaneously breaks new ground,
while clinging to the current one.
Take the performance that Porsche is known for. Then add to that the strength of a 400 horsepower engine, the design and
greater stability of a wider body, the extraordinary traction and agility of all-wheel drive, and an unmistakable illuminated rear light
strip. The sum of which is a sports car that holds your attention as tightly as it holds to the road. Porsche. There is no substitute.
Experience the control of all-wheel drive.
The new Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.
