Drifting: What is “Porsche Parade”?

By John Hamilton, Region President

Parade is the “big” Porsche

Club event of the year: our

annual national convention.

Parade has a potpourri of activities,

and club members from all across

North America come together for

this once-a-year extravaganza to

participate in a week of competitive

events, to socialize and enjoy their cars, with seminars

and tours adding to the event’s variety. For many

club members, Parade is their big vacation for the

year. It provides them with an opportunity to see

new parts of the country as well as to visit with PCA

friends that they only see once a year, at Parade!

This year the Porsche Parade is being held at

Monterey, California. Many of us will be traveling to

Monterey by car or plane to attend this fun event.

One group of seven couples has even rented a car

carrier to bring their cars to and from Parade while

they fly out! As for us, we look forward to the 2-½

day drive, where we’ll explore new roads and towns

along the way. I’m sure we’ll be traveling a bit on

Route 66, part of our nation’s highway history.

Why do we go?

• To really get away from our routines

• To explore our country

• To see the incredible collection of

Porsches that come from all over the

country (including Alaska) every year

• To enjoy the driving tours once we get there

(James Dean’s last route is one of them)

• To visit with our friends

that we’ve met at previous

Parades, including

members of the Porsche

family from Germany!

This one should be special, since

there are probably more Porsches

in California than any other state.

Who knows? Even Jay Leno or

Jerry Seinfeld may show up!

To find out more, go to

http://parade2014.pca.org/

Registration opens on April 1.

We’d love to have you join us!

Mav of the Month

Sometimes volunteers don’t wait for a position to

open in the club; they just create one. Such is the case

with this month’s Mav of the Month. Stephanie Ho

has been a regular attendee at our Maverick Monthly

Socials for more than the past year. She noticed that

there was a need to make them more inviting to

our new members. So instead of just suggesting that

“someone else” start contacting new members to

invite them, Stephanie took it upon herself to help

create the new member welcoming committee and

drive the program to do emails

and phone calls to our new

members each month, to personally

invite them to our monthly

social events. The results speak

for themselves: record-setting

attendance at the Monthly Socials

AND immediate interaction for

our new members with the club.

So Stephanie: this one’s for you.

Congratulations and THANK YOU

for driving a program that didn’t

even exist a year ago. You’ve made

many, many new members feel

welcome into their club, and

driven INCLUSION to a new high.

Enjoy your gift card to the Silver

Fox restaurant!

Carey On...

By Carey Spreen, Managing Editor

It officially

became Spring

a couple of

weeks ago, and

not a minute too

soon. It has been

a cold winter,

and it’s time to

get out for some driving events.

April is when the driving season

begins in earnest. The third Drivers’

Ed event takes place on the

weekend of April 12 and 13, and

another Sunday Drive (although

this time on a Saturday) promises

a fun tour to Muenster for their

annual Germanfest. What better

place to show up in a Porsche?

By the time you read this, registration

for the Porsche Parade will

have opened (April 1). If you plan

to go, I hope you have already

registered, because this one, in

Monterey, California, promises to

sell out pretty quickly. The West

Coast Parades draw some of the rarest

Porsches in the country, and the

weather on the Monterey Peninsula

in June is nearly perfect. For more

info, go to parade2014.pca.org.

Closer to home and closer in

time (May 2-4) is the second annual

Carrera of the Americas Club

Race, taking place at the Circuit of

the Americas, southeast of Austin.

Once again, Maverick Region

has teamed up with Hill Country

(Austin) and Lone Star (Houston)

Regions to put on a PCA Club

Race at one of the premier racing

facilities in North America.

Our own Don Sebert is Volunteer

Coordinator for this year’s COTA

event. It takes lots of volunteers

to put on a Club Race, and volunteering

is an easy way to get

close to the action. To see what

positions are available and to

sign up, visit register.pca.org.

But if classic European cars are

more your thing, longtime Maverick

Richard Cross reminds us that

the 30th All British and European

Car Day, dyslexically referred to as

ABCDE, celebrates 90 years of the

MG and the 50th anniversary of

the British Invasion. It takes place

on Sunday, May 4 at Dryfuss Club

Point in White Rock Lake Park. For

more info visit www.allbritishcarday.

com. There will be at least one

Porsche there, right Richard?

Finally, please welcome new advertiser

Stuart’s Paint and Body. Many

of you are already familiar with Stuart’s

work, and we are pleased that

he is helping to support Slipstream.

Gimme a Minute: March Board Meeting

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary March 5, 2014

The meeting

began at

7:06pm.

President John

Hamilton reported

for several Chairs

who were MIA.

Social Chair Tracy

Robertson reported that a group,

including husband David and

Charlie Davis, are working on Flickr

and alternate ways to display photos

online. Membership Chairs Tom

and Susan Froehlich report that we

hit an all-time membership high at

1,419 primary members, thanks to

calling and emailing efforts, especially

by Stephanie Ho. Monthly

Dinner Social Chair Paul Ramos

said that Uncle Julio’s was a huge

success and is looking forward to

the March event at Tolbert’s Restaurant

in Grapevine. Charity Chair

Chris Hamilton wanted to check

to make sure the monies were sent

to the Hope Shelter for Founders’

Day, the Holiday Party, etc. Treasurer

Jim Falgout is working on it.

John then took off all his other

hats and reported that the Velocity

Channel will be showing a special

feature about the Fifty Years of

the 911. He also passed along

information regarding the Street

Survival Course, now sanctioned

and encouraged by PCA National.

We’ll look to have an event soon,

once we find a chairperson.

The Club Race at Circuit of the

Americas is definitely happening.

Don Sebert has agreed to

be our volunteer coordinator,

and he asked that anyone who

is interested in volunteering can

register at register.pca.org.

John had some bad news to share.

When we first started the Macan

raffle, the estimated retail value of

the vehicle was considerably less

than it is in actuality. Even after

Autobahn Porsche reduced the

price and taxes for us, we ended up

taking a loss on the raffle overall.

We will uphold the outcome,

but unfortunately have nothing

to send to charity afterwards. It

was disappointing, but unavoidable,

despite our best efforts.

Editor Carey Spreen thanked

Linda Bambina for her tremendous

help getting Slipstream out so

early, even though February was

a short month. He will be increasing

the number of printed issues,

since membership keeps going

up. He also brought a portable

theater to show us the premiere

episode of “The Car Guy” show,

featuring our February DE event.

Linda Bambina mentioned

another glitch with Slipstream this

month involving the database. She

worked with Andy Mears to find

solutions around it and ended

up cleaning up the database of

long-gone advertisers and unpaid

“subscribers.” She also mentioned

that April 1 is the opening day for

the Monterey Porsche Parade!

Concours Chair Andy Kay is working

on May at Mayo’s and is looking

for help to set up before the event.

He convinced Ed Mayo to write

something about the Early 911S

group, similar to recent write-ups

about 928 and 356 clubs. He is

encouraging the 928 club to embrace

PCA and Maverick Region.

Michael Vatter has come to

several meetings recently, and

has agreed to have his company

sponsor next year’s All Member

Party. We were all floored and

grateful for his generosity!

Treasurer Jim Falgout reported

we are in good financial status

with ~$70K in the bank.

New Guest Attendee Richard

Salomon from Tyler was there. He

shared his thanks for Slipstream

keeping him in touch. He has

some great east Texas drive ideas

that he will be sharing with John

Harvey. He attends a Cars & Coffee

in Tyler and will invite other

board members to go next time.

Rally Chair Don Sebert has

scheduled a rally for mid-July that

will start early in the morning

and finish at a lunch location to

avoid the heat. Details TBD.

Sunday Drive Co-Chair Brendan

Eagan mentioned that the March

Sunday Drive, nicknamed the

Chicken Run, will depart from

Duncanville and end up at Babe’s

in Cedar Hill. They have been

providing some printed maps showing

major turns to keep people

from getting lost. On Saturday,

April 26, they’ll tour from Lewisville

to Muenster for Germanfest.

Lederhosen is optional. They

are grooming leaders for smaller

drive groups to help everyone

arrive safely at speeds they like.

Drivers’ Education Chair Chris

Tabor said the first event of the

year was a great success, with strong

financials coming from the event,

despite some extra expenses for

headset cords and cases. We’ll have

two events at Eagles Canyon this

year. The April DE is on the 3.1-

mile course at MotorSport Ranch.

He received positive feedback from

February. Sponsorship Chair Daren

Kirbo is working with sponsors to

possibly include water at events.

Our website is up to date. Andy

Kay mentioned he thought the

6 April


Green group parking at the Feb event was a great idea.

We’ll do the same at the March event the following

weekend. He’s working on a “Taste of the Track” event.

AX/TT Chair Travis Howard announced that Mayo

Performance is again sponsoring the Autocross series.

Sunday, March 2 was the first event of the year, and

despite the cold, nearly 30 attended. The event was finished

by 12:30 as the temp dropped to 22° with sleet

and freezing rain. The next event will be the May 18 AX

school and then an Autocross on May 25.

DE Registrar Wendy Shoffit mentioned changing the

DE stickers slightly, which seemed to be an improvement.

She asked if we should continue the lanyard and

plastic pouch packets, which everyone was in agreement

about.

John Hamilton last announced Maverick of the Month,

Stephanie Ho. Congratulations!

Meeting was adjourned at 8:40 PM.

Five-Speed Chatter: Krönung Einer König: “Crowning of a King”

By Ash Seidl-Staley

My beautiful 2.0L 914 turns

40 this year, and it is still

running strong! Keeping up

with the oil changes, cleaning the air

and fuel delivery components, and

smart driving has greatly increased

the life expectancy of this car. I truly

believe I will have this car (or at least

a 914) for the rest of my life, and apparently I am not

alone. I recently had a chance to look back on some

articles produced in the 1970s (my Grandpa’s old stash

of Porsche Panorama, Motor Trend, and Road and Track

magazines), and was delighted to see that the car was

predicted to be reliable and long-lived even back then.

In a small dealer pamphlet that I found tucked between

some pages, I learned that the base 914s coming

off of the line were stickered at reasonable $3,500 and

came with a 1.7L Volkswagen-built flat four engine.

I also learned that the first set of cars built in

1969 came in just two varieties: the 914/4, and the

slightly bigger and more expensive 914/6, which

originally used the 2.0L flat six engine previously

found in the ‘69 911T. Despite some increases in

Photos by the Author

engine capacity and a few dimensional changes,

the 914s stayed relatively unchanged throughout

their entire production up to 1976.

Amazingly, many 914s have survived the competitive

world of automobile manufacturing and have stayed

driving on the highways. Better yet, many more 914s

are given a chance at a new life and are being restored

in garages and shops all across America. Whether one

is a buyer or a restorer, the drawing factor of these

little cars will always be their mechanical reliability, and

the fact that they can be customized from head to toe.

With a little ingenuity almost any 911 engine Porsche

has produced can be squeezed into the uniquely located

engine bay. Internet sites with classifieds sections

and parts listing are flooded with 914 flared fenders,

slant nose packages, and front and rear spoilers that

can be purchased and mixed/matched for one’s own

aesthetic and aerodynamic preferences. I have even

read about people who are swapping out the small

VW engines for larger more powerful Chevy V8 and

Subaru flat engines -- talk about a jet powered go-cart!

Porsche also tinkered with the 914 during production.

They tweaked the styling lines of the 914/6

and GTs each year, and in 1969 even fitted a couple

914s with a 908 flat eight racing engine. One of

the most disappointing scrapped projects relating

to the 914 was the heartbreaking rise and fall

of the 916. In 1972 this Porsche was produced

with a 2.4L engine, and its flared fender bodywork

was borrowed from a racing 914/6 GT.

The 916 was supposed to be the super luxurious

version of the 914. It came with a cassette player,

real leather interior, smooth bodylines, and beefier

engine, but with a price of $14,000-$15,000 (close to

the base 911of the time), no one took a bite. Unfortunately

only one US Spec 916 officially made it to

the states; it was purchased by Peter Gregg of Brumos

Porsche+Audi in Florida. I wonder where it is now . . . .

my chances of restoring to Concours level are well

beyond my budget. I believe a 914 should be crowned

as a Porsche; it is everything a Porsche is. It is stylish,

fast, agile, and extremely fun to drive! What more

does a 914 need? The correct engine code numbers?

Hail to the King, baby!

Hood marked out with template

Another shocking bit of information I gathered is

that none of the 914s that came from VW’s Wolfsburg

or Porsche’s Zuffenhausen came with a Porsche crest

installed on the front hood. Because the cars didn’t

come with one originally, slapping a crest on a 914

sparks up controversy between true Porsche Gear

Heads. It’s funny; I have found, through personal

discussions and forum surfing, that the people opposed

to adding the crest are not just the “original

only” guys, they are the same

people who wouldn’t accept the

914 as a Porsche in the first place.

I understand and sympathize with

what the antique “all original”

guys are saying, and if my car

was in pristine condition (like

the one in the December 2013

edition of Panorama) I probably

wouldn’t have installed the crest.

But my car is not pristine, it has

miles, rust, missing parts, and a

little customization from previous

owners -- so much so that

For those that want to place a crest on a 914 or fix/

replace another model’s crest, the steps of installation

are quite simple. PelicanParts.com provides a kit

with everything you might need to replace or install

your new crest. For my car I had to measure out

the positioning of the crest and mark my measurements

with painters tape. With a template, which is

downloadable, I marked where I was going to drill

out the two holes for the prongs on the back of the

crest. I started my incision with a small drill bit and

worked my way up to the bigger size that led to the

final fitting. To prevent rust, I applied a little touch-up

paint to my newly-drilled holes and waited for it to

dry before I placed the crest on the hood. To keep

the crest in place, it is fastened with two end caps

(which look like nuts) that just thread themselves

onto the prongs on the underside of the hood. When

the seal is snug around the crest, and the emblem

firmly situated on the hood, your work is done.

The first few glances of the car

made me feel weird. It was mildly

related to buyer’s remorse, but

nowhere near as strong. Having

the crest took a week or so to get

used to, but now I can’t imagine

what the car’s hood would look

like without it. The 914 is a significant

part of Porsche History, not to

mention the predecessor of the

Boxster, Cayman, and the spectacular

918; it deserves to be displayed

and crowned, like its contemporaries,

as a King!

Garage Glimpses: The Best of Both Worlds

By Linda Bambina, Region PR Chair

Photos by Andy Kay

Andy and Adrienne Kay moved

11 times in their first 22 years

of marriage. In each home,

Adrienne redecorated the house,

while Andy fixed up the garage.

It all started in Arlington in 1986.

Andy just wanted a clean garage floor,

but you know how that goes. The

project took on a life of its own: epoxy floor, freshly

painted walls, new lighting, and then, they moved!

Flower Mound got all that plus track lighting. A TV was

Andy at work on his Venice Blue Metallic 1987 928S4

Andy’s Guards Red 1979 911SC faces

an array of Griot’s cleaning products

added in Sugarland, and Kansas City got a 10-ft Detailers

bench. Des Moines even had a drain for indoor

car washing. The best garage was in Arizona with a

Griot’s theme. The last home, Katy, had a detached

garage with air conditioning and wall-to-wall carpeting!

After seven garage overhauls, Andy wasn’t anxious

to remodel for the next homeowner, so when they

moved to Kennedale . . . he waited. Well, after six

years, the wait is over! Adrienne says they’re not

moving – ever! Good thing, because Kennedale has

its own Man Cave adjacent to the three-car garage.

Andy plans to add air conditioning, flat screen TVs,

Martin Logan speakers, Kobalt cabinetry, new flooring,

recessed lighting, and a detailer’s bench with a

refrigerator . . .

seems like deja vu!

Adrienne has had

contractors

remodeling

Kennedale since

mid-February. Her

garage contribution

is to trade in

her Audi A6 for a

mid-engine

Cayman. That

should fit nicely

between Andy’s

front-engine

928S4 and his

rear-engine

911SC!

Commentary from the Left Seat: The Great Texas BBQ Tour, Part I

By Robert L. Turner

Editor’s Note: Rob Turner is author

of The Driver, a Marc Lange series of

novels (available through Amazon).

Cars, food,

and Rock

& Roll.

Kinda sounds like

a song from the

Clash or the Sex

Pistols. Music history

is rife with the

connection: Beach Boys, Sammy

Hagar, Rush, and even Queen got

into the act (“I’m in Love with

my Car”). There’s a connection

between cars and food. Really? You

have to ask? Drive-Thrus, Drive-Ins,

and the ubiquitous cup-holders

in both front and back seats say

a lot! Man, we are a mobile foodconsumption

society. If we Americans

can eat it, drink it, or listen

to it, we do it in our automobiles.

So that got me thinking -- okay,

not thinking too hard, but at least

engaging a few brain cells -- that

a road trip was in order. Two of

the ingredients for the road trip

were BBQ, and Austin’s South

By Southwest (SXSW) music festival;

the third one was my 2006

Cayman S. Needing a passenger

(notice I did not say co-driver),

my older son Nick filled the bill.

He was on Spring Break from

college, so he was pressed into

service as my partner-in-crime.

No surprise to me, I did not have

to push too hard. The tempting

combination of BBQ, loud music

and a few days in Austin were all it

took. He did not even pester me

to drive the CS, probably because

he still hasn’t learned how to

drive a stick. Dangling keys in

front of him? Not interested. The

lure of being the cool dude in a

Porsche hasn’t caught fire. Then

again, he’s six-foot-seven-inches

tall and finds it difficult to fit in

the driver’s seat comfortably. He’s

tried, but it’s hard to drive with

his knees splayed on either side of

the wheel, pressing into the dash.

We Texans are passionate about

our BBQ. But, let’s face it, we tend

to be passionate about most things

in this great state. We love our Q

as much as the folks in Kansas City,

Memphis or the Carolinas. KC

may be about the ribs, Memphis

about their meat rubs, and the

Carolinas about the difference in

sauces, but here in Central Texas,

it’s ALL about the brisket. Heck,

there’s even a great debate about

sauce vs no sauce (drawing out

fierce arguments along the lines

of whether or not to cook Chili

with or without beans). Like I said,

we tend to be passionate bunch.

Legend has it that the best brisket

in the state is located in the Austin

area. Our very destination.

And music? Well Austin is said

to be the live music capital of the

world. And during SXSW, maybe

even the galaxy. Two thousand

bands in six days! Are we crazy?

No. This is Austin after all. Every

live-music venue in town is

booked, solid. Bands stack on top

of each other, a new band every

hour, on the hour. Bands line up

outside a club, instruments out

of cases, ready to take the stage.

Name your favorite music! Rock?

Does a 911 have a flat-six motor?

Hip-Hop? More than you can shake

a stick at! Country and Western? If

two-stepping is your thang, you’ve

got it. Norwegian Speed metal?

Hmmm, maybe a band or two.

There’s even a sprinkling of classical

and jazz. Every musical base

is covered. The food trucks, not

wanting to be left out, get in on

the frenzy, too. They have bands

packed onto tiny stages, with a few

chairs and tables crowded around

their trucks for good measure. I

think that if people had cleaned

out their garages and didn’t mind

strangers trekking in to use their

restrooms, they’d be roped into

letting bands perform there too.

I downloaded the SXSW and

Texas Monthly BBQ apps onto

my iPhone and got ready for the

trip. The Cayman S had fresh oil

and fluids, everything topped up

and checked out; even the lug

nuts were torqued correctly. All I

had to do was gas up. Nick and I

packed light, as we’d be staying at

a friend’s house and didn’t need

dress clothes for BBQ and Rock &

Roll. Besides, we’d have looked out

of place, and my son would have

disowned me. The CS is perfect for

such a trip, as its two large trunks

swallowed our gear; my stuff in the

back trunk, Nick’s in the front.

We piled in and headed south.

Normally I like to stay off Interstate

35, as it’s one crazy stretch

of road, but we got a late start and

needed to get to Taylor, about

twenty-nine miles NE of Austin,

before it got too late. The CS is a

capable highway cruiser. Stock HP

is 295, but I’ve done a handful of

mods to bump the power up a bit: a

14 April


acier exhaust, a motorsport intake

and an under-drive pulley gives the

car a spot over 300 HP. It has plenty

of power to pass lumbering trucks

or get clear of tightly-packed traffic.

At highway speeds it’s comfortable

and not that loud either,

since I removed the previous race

exhaust. I must admit I loved the

sound of that race exhaust, at the

track. The other 99% of the time?

Not so much. You had to shout to

your passenger to be heard and

playing music? Forgetaboutit!

One more salient feature about

driving the CS -- and, for that matter,

the current crop of Porsches

-- the A/C system is awesome.

Increase the fan speed a couple of

clicks and presto, the cabin cools

off. Amazing. Especially amazing,

as I fondly recall the A/C system

on my old 930. It blew a tiny whiff

of faintly cool breeze on a day

when the ambient temperature was

already in the low 70s. Anything

hotter than that? Sweat city. So

we set the Satnav, cranked the

A/C, put on some music from

a band that I had never heard

of (but were playing at SXSW),

and pointed the car south.

Next month, we come face to face

with a mountain of smoky BBQ.

I Get Around: O Roseanna

By Dick Badler

Courtesy High Gear, the Rocky Mountain Region Newsletter

Jane: And now,

with tonight’s

commentary,

here’s Roseanne

Rosannadanna.

Roseanne:

Thanks, Jane.

A Richard Feder, from Ft. Lee,

N.J., writes to say, “Hey, Roseanne,

what’s with this cone incident on

the George Washington Bridge? I

live in Ft. Lee. In fact, I can see the

bridge from my apartment. And

I can say it’s bumper-to-bumper

every morning, noon and night.

Sometimes all morning, noon and

night. You don’t need to close a

lane in order to create a traffic

jam. And you certainly don’t need

traffic cones to do it. You just wake

up in the morning, and it happens,

like the sun rising in the east.

“And now, my neighbors and I are

enduring all these tourists, these

rubberneckers, these souvenir

hunters, these TV news crews,

these subversive political animals,

pouring into our nice, bucolic

burg, all looking for evidence

that Chris Christie was here.

“What can we do?”

Hey, Richard, who told you

to live in Ft. Lee? It’s a free

country, isn’t it? You can live

anywhere you want. Why there?

Why do people who live near

airports complain about the air

traffic? Why do people who live

near bridges complain about the

car and bus and truck traffic?

And here’s something to ponder.

Do you know which came

first? Do you have any idea what

your nice, high-rise apartment

with the view of the bridge was,

before your town was paved over,

to make way for progress? Here’s

what it was: an amusement park!

Yeah! And not just any amusement

park. It was Palisades Park.

And there was even a hit song

about it. Down at Palisades Park.

And you probably thought the

song was sung by Lou Christie,

didn’t you? Who you think is a

long-lost relative of your current

sitting governor? Now, that would

be real poetic justice, wouldn’t it?

But it’s not true. It was sung by

Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon.

How’s that for irony, Mr. Feder?

No, Mr. Feder, your real problem

is the Coneheads. That’s right,

Mr. Feder, people who steal

cones and set them up in parking

lots, creating all sorts of zigs

and zags, totally ignoring parking

spots and arrows and entries and

exits. These are the people you

really should be worried about.

Because, do you know what these

people do with their cones, after

they’ve set them up in weird patterns

in parking lots? They put

them on their heads. And then they

walk around, talking like robots,

and saying they’re from France.

I’m not kidding, Mr. Feder. It’s

scary. They can’t help it. And

neither can our Immigration and

Naturalization Service. Because,

you see, they’re not from France

at all. They don’t speak French.

And they’re not from here either,

because they don’t speak American.

They don’t belong here.

There’s your issue, Mr. Feder.

There’s a real issue for you.

Now, here’s the kicker for you,

Mr. Feder. Do you have any idea

what the Coneheads did, before

your nice, bucolic high-rise

apartment in the sky was created?

That’s right, they set up

their cones in the Palisades Park

parking lot, on days when the

amusement park was closed.

Which is why they’re back, storming

around your town and your

bridge. Mr. Feder, you need to

have mercy on these souls. They’re

lost. Lost. Because they can’t find

their way home. First they put up a

parking lot. Then the city was gone.

Can you blame them?

But there’s more. Coneheads drive

fast cars. And they drive cars fast.

And their cars all have sunroofs.

And the sunroofs are always open.

So their cones can have headroom.

Do you drive fast, Mr. Feder? I

bet you drive something like a

beater Corolla. Which is good for

one thing: sitting in traffic on the

George Washington Bridge. I want

to walk up to you and knock on

the window and say, hey, mister,

I, Roseanne Rosannadanna, am

walking beside you. And I’m

keeping up. Don’t you think you

can go a little faster? I want to

get to where I’m going before

I’m too old to know I got there.

I walk up to Corvette owners, and I

say, hey, stud, where are you going?

I walk up to Porsche owners, and

I say, hey, wo gehst du hin? I don’t

say, hey, ou allez vous. They’re

not from France, Mr. Feder.

That should be a clue for you.

Jane: That’s enough! Enough!

Roseanne, you, madam, are out

of time. And you’re out of mind.

Good night and have a pleasant

tomorrow.

Maverick Monthly Social: Mavericks Put the “Happy” in Happy Hour

By Michael Manley

Yeah, I know. We officially changed

the name to “Maverick Monthly

Social,” but it’s still Happy Hour

to me. We had 52 happy Porsche

owners attending February’s event

at Uncle Julio’s in North Dallas.

A great turnout! I think we taxed

the Uncle’s staff to the max.

I guess that’s what impresses me most about the club

-- happy people. Since Barbie and I transferred to

the Maverick Region from Houston last year, we’ve

been impressed by the great folks that we have met

at each event. In fact, there are so many friendly

people that we can’t remember all their names. I

guess that’ll come with time and attending more

events. Maybe we need a mug book to help us out.

Jerry and Myra Sutton with

Brenda and Jim Thompson

They all agreed that we had the edge in hospitality.

One of those newbies was Walter Otstott. He said

that, while he thinks we are a little ahead of the Audi

group, he had to add that they threw him a birthday

party at Capitol Grille with about 20 people in attendance.

Audi also furnished five cars to test drive,

We had some new members come to the Social this

month. Three were also members of the Audi club.

including an R8. Wow. Just for your information, my

birthday is in September, and I’m dying to drive a

918. Just sayin’. Walter is also a member of the Ferrari

club, and says we still have a little work to do.

Walter also wanted me to pass along info on what

sounds like a fun meet. The first Saturday of each

month, Exotics on the Rocks is held at The Back

Nine in Addison. It starts at noon and goes until

everyone leaves. All exotics are welcome, including

all Porsches. There are also prizes for the best car.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the next

Happy Hour -- I mean Monthly Social -- at Trinity Hall

Irish Pub and Restaurant on Mockingbird Lane, on

April 17. If you see us, say hi, and say your name really

s-l-o-w-l-y. Maybe we’ll remember it this time.

©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.
