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

(president, vice-president,

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 president@mavpca.org with

your thoughts and feelings. After all, “it’s not just

the cars, it’s the people” that make a difference.

ALEXIS A. V. CAMPBELL, Proprietor

1235 William D. Tate Ave

Grapevine, TX 76051

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

Carey On...

By Carey Spreen, Managing Editor

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

end!

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

calendar@mavpca.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

6 July


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

By Linda Bambina, Region PR Chair

Photos by the Author

Carl Amond

has lived

in a number

of homes,

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 . . .

8 July

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

I

have said it

before and

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

overpasses!

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

Maverick Region.

I

think we all

have a story.

It’s that one

moment when

you encounter

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

14 July

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

By Andy Kay, Concours d’Elegance Chair Photos by Linda Bambina, Charlie Davis, and Carey Spreen

As I wrap up the spring round

of Concours and events, I must

say, I’m impressed with Maverick

turnout and enthusiasm for all

events!

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

Choice camaraderie.

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 concours@mavpca.org.

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,

I wasn’t

quite sure

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!

All the while members are circulating,

Stephanie Ho is greeting

Comments were circulating about some longtime

members not in attendance, due to a get-together for

Porsche Parade attendees the same evening. Many of

us were regretful that we were not with them as they get

ready to head to the Parade in Monterey, California in

mid-June. Maybe they will take a trip up Highway One.

Wish we were there.

Be sure to meet up with us for this month’s Maverick

Social on Thursday, July 17 at the Bonefish Grill in

Southlake!

have missed in the mean time!

Save the flash!

Flashing your high beams at

©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.
