ZONE 5 REP
Drifting: Get Involved!
By John Hamilton, Region President
At the June board meeting, we
had attendees volunteer to be
our nominating committee
to help find people to fill possible
vacancies on our executive committee
secretary and treasurer). But there
are many, many other positions (see
page 4) that need to be filled or refreshed each year.
“How can I get involved?” is the question I often hear,
and that’s good question! One of the best ways is to
come join us at our monthly board meetings, held
on the first Wednesday of each month (except July).
It is there that you can learn about the workings of
each of the committees, and where there is a need
for assistance. You can then apply your passions and
skills to an area of the club that needs those assets.
“When should I get involved?” This depends on your
family, work and other time requirements, but that
doesn’t mean there isn’t a job you could do at home
at your computer, too. Examples: assistant editor for
our Slipstream magazine; registrar for our Time Trial,
Drivers’ Education, or Autocross programs; liaison
to the Porsche Panorama national club magazine. Not
every position needs to be one that exists today; it’s
where YOU know you can contribute to the whole.
“Why should I get involved?” That’s a personal question.
Every person has a different feeling about how
they should give back to the organizations in which
they partake. If you think you can make a difference,
I encourage you to join us at one of our board meetings,
or just email me at email@example.com with
your thoughts and feelings. After all, “it’s not just
the cars, it’s the people” that make a difference.

Time Trial, after an extremely successful, innovative
and growth-oriented time of their leadership.
So as you see them during the remainder of this year,
please help us thank and congratulate them on their
dedication to our club. They are two of the finest
examples of club contributors we have ever had.
Congratulations, Robyn and Travis, for being our
Mavs of the Month. Enjoy your gift certificate to the
Silver Fox in Grapevine, for it is a small token of our
appreciation for what you have contributed to our club
over the past decade.
Mavs of the Month
Not so coincidentally, our Mavs of the Month are
long-term contributors who have made a difference
in many of our activities month-after-month
and year-after-year. Robyn and Travis Howard have
driven our Autocross and Time Trial programs for
years in the positions of Chair, Registrar, management,
repair and improvement. In addition, they
both participate in each of our Drivers’ Education
programs with Travis as Gridmaster and Robyn as
corner worker. At the end of this year, they’ll be
stepping down from their positions in Autocross and

First of all, I need to correct an
error from last month’s Garage
Glimpses article about Frank
and Bobbie Briggs’ garage. I mistakenly
identified Frank’s 1995 993 as a
2005 model -- sorry for the confusion!
DE Chair Chris Tabor is looking for
an Equipment Manager -- for more
information, see the ad on page 25.
Looking ahead to August: We will be holding a Gimmick
Rally on Saturday morning (before the full heat of
the day arrives), August 2, finishing at Islamorada Fish
Company on the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. Rallies
are held on public roads at legal speeds. A rally is not a
race -- it’s a test of your observational and navigational
skills. And in this case it has a great seafood lunch at the
Look for Parade results in the August issue!
Gimme a Minute: June Board Meeting
By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary June 4, 2014
John Hamilton started the meeting
at 7:03 pm. He reminded everyone
that there will not be a July board
meeting. He welcomed visitors Jim &
Mihyun Ford and Mark & Michelle
Jones. He reported for the Membership
Chairs, the Froehlichs, saying
that we are unfortunately down this
month from an all time high of 2,367 to now 2,353.
There will be more efforts made to increase renewals.
John said that a nominating committee needed
to be established according to the bylaws (usually
at the July meeting, but since there won’t be
one…). David Robertson, Wesley Lincoln, and
Chris Tabor stepped up, with David as the chair.
The Autocross/Time Trial Chair and Registrar are
stepping down after November this year. Travis and
Robyn Howard have been doing their jobs for eight
years, and they want to move on to new possibilities.
We will be advertising for their positions and
hopefully create a committee of people to do the
work the two of them have been doing for years.
John also mentioned we had a visitor at the last DE,
the President of the Porsche Club in Slovenia, whose
daughter lives in the area. They had also come to a
lunch event about four years ago. Worldwide reach!
Lastly, John mentioned he received an email from a
new member in the publishing business, suggesting we
go to full color issues of Slipstream and would like to
help us with that. A group of Mike Brodigan, Richard
Solomon, and Ed Mullenix will discuss this further.
Goodie Store and Advertising Chair Pat Friend
introduced his friends, the Joneses, and looks
forward to their getting involved. He said that
all ads are currently paid up. There have been
a few new ads added over the past few months.
The Goodie Store is also doing well.
Treasurer Jim Falgout mentioned we have ~$85K in
the checking account. He has not received any money
from COTA yet, including the return of our $27.5K
deposit. He has also not received any DE sponsorship
money, but is sure he’ll get some of that soon.
Concours Chair Andy Kay has had a busy month. He
first had May at Mayo’s with over 40 cars on display. He
also had a concours detailing event at Jack’s Garage,
where they gave out lots of tips. Griot’s products were
sold, but that wasn’t the focus of the event. Lastly,
he coordinated the Porsche effort at the Autos in
the Park at the Cooper Aerobics Center on June 1.
Great event with light judging. Both the PCA judges
and the Cooper judges chose the same winners. Will
put on a more strongly judged event in the fall.
Social Chair Tracy Robertson also said what a
success May at Mayo’s was, with over 160 people
attending. She suggested we might charge a
nominal fee for a concours entry to encourage
more RSVPs instead of walk-ups.
Linda Bambina said people are doing well meeting
Slipstream deadlines. She also noted that we
have nearly 70 Mavericks attending Parade this
year in Monterey, many of whom will be wearing
special logo’ed windbreakers from the Goodie
Store. She also mentioned she will have more
details soon about the special event in Tyler.
Richard Solomon also discussed the above event,
which is a fundraiser for Tyler Junior College. He
worked with Billy Hibbs on more details to make the
event more affordable, but still keep it charitable. Mr.
Hibbs and the college are covering the fee for Vic
Elford. Now the cost is only $50 per person, which
is fully tax deductible. It will go directly to the college
for their automotive department. The date of
September 28 has been confirmed. There will be a
food, drink, and valet option that should run about
$20, but they will continue to look for sponsorship.
The event will be limited to 200 people. Porsche of
Plano is interested in being involved in some way.
Mike Brodigan made mention that he would
like to see information on the Monthly Dinner
Socials earlier on the website. He is offering his
help to the Ramos’ and will contact them. Suggestions
of sending the information directly to
firstname.lastname@example.org will help speed things up.
Drivers’ Education Chair Chris Tabor said we had
a great DE event the prior weekend. We are almost
halfway through the events for the year. All the
events have been profitable so far, thanks greatly
to the vice chairs of the events. He thinks they are
more social and more fun. The events have sold out
the Green and Blue groups, and through advancements,
we’re working to fill the higher run groups.
Park Place Porsche would like another event in the
fall, perhaps the MSR 3.1 for a single day. Details
to be determined. He does need a new equipment
manager, though, and will actively recruit.
Autocross/Time Trial Chair Travis Howard said
we had a great Autocross school at Pennington. We
had 16 students and 22 volunteers. We would have
had more students, but were limited by the number
of instructors we had. Fortunately, three students
returned the next weekend for the real autocross,
in addition to three people who were not able to
get in to the school event. Both events were successful
and enjoyable. TT#1 and AX#3 are coming this
weekend (June). Richard Diller is continuing to help
improve the loose gravel in Mineral Wells. Registration
is expected to continue to go up in number.
DE Registrar Wendy Shoffit made a suggestion that
the region purchase loaner helmets for DE events
at Eagles Canyon to help some newcomers. She
thanked Travis and Robyn for the great AX school,
paving the way for her 17 year old daughter, Jasmine,
to feel comfortable entering the Parade Autocross.
John Hamilton lastly announced that Travis and
Robyn Howard are the Mavericks of the Month!

Garage Glimpses: All in the Family – Carl Amond

in a number
in a number of
countries. But it
wasn’t until Y2K,
after he retired,
that he finally found a home that
had space on the property to
build the 2,400 sq. ft. garage of
his dreams. Of all the “working
garages” that I have viewed, his is
the most functional, the most like
a professional mechanic’s shop.
Carl’s first Porsche was a primo
1962 Super 90 Cabriolet purchased
in 1966, and he has long since
stopped counting. He started
SCCA racing in a Mini Cooper in
1971 and first joined the Northern
New Jersey Region of PCA.
His business took the family to
England in 1986, then Germany
in 1988. Upon returning to the
States, they joined Maverick Region
in 1992. Club Racing captured his
attention in ’95. Moving to his current
home in 2000, wife Barbara got
her pool and Carl got his garage.
One stop tire mounting . . .
A few clever license plates and
an original 914 ad from 1970
Anticipating future needs in this
space, Carl has carefully placed
electrical power, compressed air, as
well as TIG, MIG, stick, and acetylene
welding in all four corners of
this brimming workshop/garage.
He has 15 engines in storage or
in tear-down mode (yep, builds
his own). Workbenches hold
tools, parts, boxes, and cleaning
rags for several on-going projects.
One corner holds a tire mounting
rig, balancing machine, bead
blaster, lathe/milling machine,
parts washer, and an air compressor
the size of Rhode Island.
One very distinctive aspect to this
garage space is that light streams
in from three sides of the back
walls. The paned windows climb
from mid-wall to almost 15 feet
near the ceiling. The view in the
back is of a heavily wooded area,
incredibly tranquil, dappled light
and all. (Plus there is an apartment
built over the garage where son
Chris lives.) The whole structure
had to be bricked and designed to
match the main home’s exterior,
according to deed restrictions, so
it is a very beautiful building!
The entire family has been “absolutely
supportive” and has developed
a shared passion for automobiles.
A shiny metal gift from his
boys proclaims “Amond & Sons
Garage est. 2001,” and any given
day will find some or all of them at
work on the Spec Boxsters which
they build and maintain. Barbara
supplied an oversized welcome mat
that says it all: “My World, My
Universe, My Garage.” Carl is happy
to tell me that she’s also his Number
One (Boss) for his Pit Crew,
supplying Gatorade, cold washcloths,
and a smile for her husband
and avid racing sons. Carl has also
become an inventor of specialized
tools as well as developer of specialized
engine parts for his race cars.
Ask him how he solved two different
oil starvation issues for their
Spec Boxsters, and how many
4-inch pulleys they have sold!
. . . and balancing!
Floor-to-ceiling windows provide lots of natural light.
With 2400 square feet of floor space, there is room
for several people to work at the same time.

Destination Restoration: Some Much-Needed Air
By Ash Seidl-Staley
Photos by the Author; Diagram by Dave Darling, Pelican Parts
have said it
I am going
to say it again: I
absolutely love Air
Cooled Engines! I
mean, what’s not
to love? They’re
practical, easy to work on, durable,
and the noise they make sends
shivers down my spine while permanently
slapping a hulking smile
on my face. The sound and feel
of my 914’s 2.0-liter engine makes
my day every time I turn the key.
I can get up on the wrong side of
the bed, have the worst morning
ever, spill coffee all over myself,
and hit every single red light on
the way to work, but as soon as I get
out of my car the smile is there.
Much like me, my 914 can have
her bad days as well, and being
the owner, it is my job to make her
smile again. Since January she has
been having issues idling, and from
the way she bogged and slugged
around corners I could tell she was
sucking down an uneven fuel/air
mixture. I traced each issue back to
the most obvious source: a vacuum
leak. Knowing what my issue was
was one thing, but fixing it has
become an unexpected challenge
that I am still tinkering with today.
The first step I took was to get rid
of the air filter system already on
the car. The previous owner of my
914 had a very custom, but very
wrong, air filter bolted onto the car.
Instead of a stock air filter box, or
carburetors, he had a single, exposed,
circular K&N air filter sitting
on top of the throttle body. There
were no hose connections, nowhere
for air to get pulled from, and it
made an annoyingly loud hissing
sound while running. If another
914 owner was in my shoes, typically
he would use this opportunity to
swap out the Fuel Injection system
completely and throw on a set of
carbs. I’m not going to lie; I did
think about that, but I figured the
next 914 would become my custom
hot rod and that this 914’s engine

would be kept stock. This meant that tracking down
a stock 1974 2.0L air box jumped to the top of my
to-do list. After a couple of days of searching, I finally
acquired one from a fellow Gear Head on PP (Pelican
Parts). When it arrived I made sure it fit, cleaned it
up, and re-painted it black. Now that I had the proper
box, I started mapping out all of the vacuum lines,
and with the help of a hand-drawn diagram (also
found on Pelican Parts) I started fixing the air flow.
As I looked down into my engine bay I soon realized
that this particular engine needed a lot more than
I had originally expected. Half of the things I was
supposed to connect hoses to didn’t exist! Apparently
my 914 does not have the proper cold start valve, the
one that has two nozzles. One is supposed to connect
to the air auxiliary regulator, and the other is the
connection to the fuel line. My car is also missing a
deceleration valve. Both of these parts are now on my
list of things to get, but they can be a little pricey, so
I figured out how to delete these connections from
the system without affecting drivability. Fitting the
air box onto the throttle body was surprisingly easy
(fastening an airplane seatbelt is harder!). And with
the diagram I was able to connect all remaining hoses.
The whole time I was putting in hoses and swapping
out cracked ones, I couldn’t believe how the previous
owner had got the car to run without all the proper
vacuum connections. He was missing three very
important hoses that connect straight to the air box.
The first is a small metal T that is supposed to pull
clean air down into each of the heads. The second
is the hose from the gas tank evaporating canister
which runs along the driver’s side rocker and pops
out underneath the relay board in the engine bay.
The third is the Oil Breather hose or PCV Valve.
Since I don’t have the proper cold start valve, I spliced
the line coming from the Air Auxiliary Regulator
with the line from the cylinders and connected both
to the air box. The last connection I made, since my
914 2.0-liter D-Jetronic hose diagram from Pelican Parts
distributor and other hoses were already properly
connected, was the second evaporation line from
the front of the car. This line plugs into the small
nipple on the side of the fan housing. Whether the
nipple is on the driver’s side or passenger’s side
depends on engine capacity and model year.
Now that most of my hoses are connected I can
already feel a difference in engine performance. The
bogging and sluggish feel is gone, and my idle mixture
screw actually affects the idle now! My next step is to
source a deceleration valve and connect it to the last
port on my air box. Until then I will cruise my 2.0 liter
through the streets of Plano, undoubtedly enjoying the
deep rumble reverberating off the buildings and

Commentary from the Left Seat: That First Car Guy Moment
By Robert L. Turner
Editor’s Note: Rob Turner is author
of The Driver, a Marc Lange series
of novels (available through Amazon),
and member of
think we all
have a story.
It’s that one
something for the
first time and it changes your life.
Like seeing Fangio, Moss or Shelby
at some long ago competition that’s
somehow seared in your memory
like so many black & white period
photos. The ear-piercing sound of
a shrieking V12, the smell of hot
brakes and black rubber streaks
left on the road in a series of slides.
What about the car itself? Seeing
that blood red Ferrari GTO or
Porsche 917 in Gulf colors. Or
maybe it was working with your
dad, brother or grandfather, cleaning
spark plugs while they turned
the bolts on an engine rebuild.
There was that spark that got you
interested in cars. Something that
pushed you over the edge, never
to look back uphill, because you
couldn’t climb back up to the
top of that crest if you wanted to.
Yeah, you are a car geek and if
you are reading this magazine, I
suspect I know at least one marque
that you kinda like. So buckle
up, we have some stories to tell.
I am much the same; I come
by auto fanaticism naturally. My
mom’s second husband was French
after all. Come on . . . the 1960s, a
French guy that smoked Gauloise
cigarettes, cooked incredible
French food, and looked like a
French movie star? Of course, he
knew how to work on cars too.
He seemed born to it. In 1967 he
bought a ‘63 Austin Healey 3000
Mk III, medium blue with a dark
blue leather interior. The car was
only four years old, but it may as
well have been 100. It was broken
all the time. How could this nearly
new car spend so much time with
its hood open, its insides being
exposed? Easy! Lucas Electronics.
The Prince of Darkness; the
Earl of Sitting-On-Jack-Stands.
He worked on it each weekend to
get it running again; it seemed to
work on the weekdays and, as if by
magic, broke down on Friday evening.
I remember that it required
a lot of tools and parts that seemed
The first thing that hit me
was the smell. Then miles of
leather and chrome, that huge
thin-rimmed steering wheel, the
wood smooth to the touch, the
impossibly tall chrome shifter
set into the gated gear pattern,
all unmistakable Ferrari.
to only come from a place very far
away, and it came with a lot of dirty
fingernails and broken knuckles.
And it required a lot of money…
which we did not have much of.
But when it ran, it was like nothing
else. That sound, the deep basso
thunder of the inline 6-cylinder
motor, that impossibly low exhaust
hanging just centimeters from
the ground, and for me at least,
those tiny buckets in the back that
were supposed to be seats . . . with
no seat belts. Ah . . . the Sixties.
We drove it once from St. Louis
to Lexington, KY one summer
so I could meet my real father.
I remember sitting in the back,
hanging on, looking at the speedo,
seeing 120 mph on the dial; the
wind rushing not so much around
me as though me. Funny, I was
not even afraid of falling out. I
trusted my Step-Dad completely.
We drove it around Lexington trying
to find our hotel. The car may
have come from another planet.
Which I suppose it did, since back
in the 60s, a car that came from
England probably seemed completely
alien to the locals. People
pointed and stared. Many had
never seen such an automotive
sight. Our motel was on a road
called Versailles Rd (locally pronounced
Ver-Sales). We had trouble
finding it since my Step-Dad in
his French accent pronounced it
correctly. The locals said they had
never heard of Versailles Rd, but
they knew where Ver-Sales Rd was.
No dummy, he finally figured it out.
You know that motel is still there,
forty-seven years later. Now it is a
Baptist Seminary, but back then it
was one of the only games in town.
I saw a ’65 Chevy Impala twodoor
pull up and park next to the
Healey. Two people exited the car,
anxiously looked around as if trying
to spot something. They were
looking for me. It was my Dad and
Step-Mom. Wow, it was the collision
of two very different worlds. One
urbane and the other . . . well, let’s
just call it a bit country. I remember
looking at my Mom in a panic. The
two people that walked towards us
were dressed in Bermuda shorts
and matching short sleeve shirts. I
looked back at my Mom and Step-
Dad, they were dressed like movie
stars. She nodded her head, yep
that was my Dad and Step-Mom. It
was going to be a long summer . . .
Finally it was Labor day and I was
glad to be back home in St. Louis.
One afternoon after school, my
Step-Dad took me to a European
car dealership, and while he bought
some parts to fix the broken Healey
(believe it or not), left me alone
to wander around the cars that
were for sale. Oh . . . that magical
moment, the beauty, shapes that
could only be described as otherworldly.
I touched a Lamborghini
GT350 and actually sat in it. I put
my hands around the steering
wheel and gear shift, but dared not
move them, fearful that I might
break something. I saw a bright
red 275 GTB/4. A real Ferrari! It
was something my Step-Dad had
only talked about, but here it was,
right in front of me. And nobody
was looking! I slowly clicked open
the door and climbed inside.
I was transported into another
world; this was beyond anything I
had sat in before. The first thing
that hit me was the smell. Then
miles of leather and chrome, that
huge thin-rimmed steering wheel,
the wood smooth to the touch,
the impossibly tall chrome shifter
set into the gated gear pattern, all
unmistakable Ferrari. I breathed
in; it smelled of hand cut leather,
rubber and a faint whiff of oil --
intoxicating perfume for a 7-year
old. I just sat there soaking it all
in. There were other great cars on
the show room floor: Maseratis,
Lotuses, and Jags. But what did it
for me was the Lamborghini and
the Ferrari. I was hooked! Smitten
with the beauty of the shapes
the Italian houses produced.
So you see, it was all a set up after
all. I would be car guy for life. I
came by it naturally too. I have the
tools, the dirty fingernails and
broken knuckles to prove it. Oh
and I have owned 11 Porsches too.
But those are other stories. And on
that exhaust note, till next time.
Unique Gift Idea: The Crash Collection
By Jim Hirsch
Editor’s Note: The following was written by a Maverick
Region member who wanted an opportunity to pass along
a gift idea to other members. It is not an advertisement.
We Porsche enthusiasts often have a difficult time
finding that perfect gift for our significant other,
which demonstrates not only our passion for exciting
automobiles, but also an appreciation for the
machines and the art they represent. At the same
time, we want a gift that hits the right chord for
the recipient, who may not understand our overwhelming
desire for all things mechanical that
feed our need for speed in our Porsche vehicles.
Maybe I’m the only person who regularly finds himself
in this predicament when trying to pick out a birthday,
Valentine, or any other special day gift that hits on
all cylinders for both the giver (me) and the recipient.
This most recent Valentine’s Day was especially problematic
for me given that I recently ordered a new 981
Boxster S. In my case, the challenge was what to give
my spouse as a gift since I had a new Porsche coming
my way. She is not a car enthusiast and has simply tolerated
my hobby for the 44 years we’ve been together.
Luckily, I recently came across a wonderful solution to
this conundrum in the February issue of Automobile
Magazine, in their Ignition section, with the title “Salvaged.”
That article unveiled a new style and design
of jewelry called the Crash Collection. This collection
includes necklaces, cuffs, rings, and earrings, and even
cufflinks -- all made from high-end car parts of vehicles
that had unfortunate meetings with other objects.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift that says “car
passion” to you and simply “passion” to your significant
other, take a closer look at the Crash Collection at
http://minabea.com/product-category/crash/. I can
vouch for the high quality craftsmanship and excellent
customer service that I received in the items we’ve
added to our personal crash collection.
Concours Corner: May and June Event Recap

As I wrap up the spring round
of Concours and events, I must
say, I’m impressed with Maverick
turnout and enthusiasm for all
May at Mayo’s
The spring season began Saturday,
May 10 with the “May at Mayo’s” Concours d’Elegance.
A perfect sun-filled day in Euless brought more than
47 Porsches out for a day of Show and Shine/People’s
The turnout was exceptional, with more than 160
“judges” casting their ballots. As tough as the competition
was, the winners were all stand outs!

Tech Sessions Attract A Crowd
On Sunday, May 18, 22 PCA members turned out to
a Detailing Tech Session at Jack’s Garage in Dallas .
Great questions, conversation, and detailing tricks were
shared. The most popular topic was the proper use of
an orbital, or “buffer” as many call it. It must have been
pretty helpful because the Griot’s Orbital inventory
sold out quickly.
Autos In the Park
On Sunday, June 1, Jack Griffin hosted the 9th Annual
Autos In The Park at the Cooper Aerobics Center in
Dallas. Over 250 cars from seven different car clubs attended
the most popular car show in Dallas. The Maverick
Region had a concours within Jack’s show. I tip my
hat to our judges, Les Linenschmidt and Alex Kader,
who did a great job. Two of the three German Class
winners from the main Autos In The Park competition
were also First Place winners in our concours! Congrats
to Chuck Lawson and Don Sebert for the DOUBLE
WIN at Autos in the Park!

Coming Up This Autumn
I look forward to the Fall season, when we move to a
“Touring” format. This is a timed event, with each car
starting with a perfect score of 165 points. Areas to be
judged include Interior, Exterior, and Storage Area.
There are point deductions based on the condition and
cleanliness of each area. The contestant with the most
points per class wins!
The event is meant to be fun, and should not be confused
with Porsche Parade-type “stress level” judging. If
you would like to be a judge, please contact me at email@example.com.

Maverick Autocross Academy 2014: Results and Accolades
By Various Autocross Students
Editor’s Note: Here are some comments from the students
at this year’s Autocross Academy, as received by Autocross
School Chair Robyn Howard.
From Garry Pearson:
In your email you thank me for attending the Novice
Autocross School. You’re 100% wrong -- it’s definitely
me who should be doing the thanking, to you and
all the PCA members who organized the school.
It was a blast!!! Every time someone asked how I
was doing, the ear-to-ear
grin and wide smile gave
me away. Why didn’t
I try this much, much
earlier? I didn’t know
what I was missing!!
I really just said to my
wife on Saturday, “My
schedule has changed for
this weekend. I should
check this Autocross
stuff out, I wonder what
it’s all about?” Waaay to
late to register, but you
and your team members
accommodated me in
amazing fashion, firstly
by welcoming a curious
spectator, and then allowing me to participate,
and finding an instructor at the last minute.
I learned SO much about my car and how it can
be driven when in much more capable hands than
mine. Ray [Nannis] was excellent in showing and
explaining the correct way to drive, use of throttle,
brakes and steering, and so patient in answering all
my questions. Not to mention the ability to point out
the “better” way drive. Advising me how I need to
“un-learn” almost 40 years of “not so good” driving
habits, and always in the nicest possible way. I am
by no means a “technical” car guy, so Ray was VERY
tolerant of my rookie (read “dumb”) questions, and
naiveté in those aspects of my car. Conclusion: I have
a whole lot of learning and un-learning to do!!
The atmosphere of openness and welcome
from all the PCA members was quite overwhelming.
What a wonderful group of people, all who
LOVE their Porsches. Everyone was great and
patient, from the first introductions to the final
Results Compiled by Dean! Yamada
invitations from instructors after the event, “Do
you want to come on a fun run?” I have so many
names to try to remember . . . great people.
My car is my daily driver. And the week after the
Autocross I found myself looking for the correct
line through corners, telling myself to “move your
hands down, dammit,” and feeling my car in a whole
different and more observant way. Not to mention
heightened awareness of my car and surroundings.

Will I be back for more? Too late for that question --
I’m hooked! I’ve just enjoyed another Autocross yesterday,
and courtesy of my
daughter, who I convinced
to come out and watch,
I have the pictures and
video to prove it. She did
comment that the smile
on my face just couldn’t be
wiped off! What a blast !!
As I started this response,
a “BIG THANK
YOU” to you and all the
Maverick members for a
great day and welcome
to PCA Autocross.
From David Pennington:
I thoroughly enjoyed
the Novice Autocross School. As someone who has
never owned a “sports car,” I learned the exhilaration
they produce. The skid pad was a blast. My
instructor, Tom [Monheim], was very patient and
knowledgeable and I learned a great deal about
what my car, a Panamera, can do. I would definitely
recommend the class to anyone who wants to improve
their driving skills and wants to have a day of fun.
From Bob DiRienzo:
The autocross school was great fun! I learned
a lot from my instructor and my driving skills
improved over the course of the day. The event
was very well managed, and it was evident
that safety was a priority, as it should be.
Definitely worth the time and money invested. I do
plan to attend some autocross events in the future as
my schedule allows.

May at Mayo’s: A First-Timer’s Perspective
By Sue Crimm
Being a newbie,
what to expect
when I arrived at
May at Mayo’s.
Carey Spreen and
I got there early so
he could help stage the Show and
Shine Concours, and I could help
set up the greeting and check-in
area. For me, the best part of PCA
(besides driving like a bat out of
hell at the Autocross School) is
meeting all of the friendly PCA
people. So needless to say, I was
thrilled to help check everyone in!
Andy and Adrienne Kay put together
the Concours and prize giveaway.
The lucky winners received
some great Griot’s Garage auto
detailing products as well as unusual
and rare medals containing the
Maverick Region logo on one side
and the Porsche crest on the other,
officially approved by Porsche Cars
North America (and Porsche is very
particular about the use of their
crest). While Andy and Adrienne
checked in the cars, Wendy Shoffit
and I checked in the attendees.
Then the serious fun started.
Everyone got a ballot and started
voting for their favorite cars. We
had a few from the 356 Tub Club,
some fantastic 911s and Boxsters,
and a yellow Carrera GT that got
everyone’s attention showed up
-- one of only two in the DFW area!

©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.
