2015 PCA Zone 5 Presidents and Zone Representative
ZONE 5 REP
Shifting Gears: Your Club Wants You!
By Jim Falgout, Region President
As of March 31, 2015, the Maverick
Region of PCA had 1,554
primary members and 844 supplementary
members for a total membership
of 2,398. I receive emails from
the National office of PCA every time
we have a new member sign up, and I
have had several such emails since that
date. That was a new record for Primary members. That
is great news!
Our challenge is to help each and every one of you
get the most enjoyment out of your club that you can.
We are in one of our most active seasons; the other is
in the fall. Our outdoor events are curtailed during the
summer because of the infamous heat. There are several
events this month and June, including track, street
driving, and social, for you to enjoy your Porsche and
the other folks who appreciate the brand as much as
you do. As we often say, “It’s not just the cars, it’s the
One of those people who contributed significantly
to the success of our Drivers’ Education events passed
away recently. It was quite unexpected. You will read
more about it later and in other sections of this publication.
The reason I bring it up is that this event made us
keenly aware that all of our chairpersons, who do a tremendous
job making our club what it is, need assistants.
They need assistants who are developing, so that one day
they can take over the activity. So yes, more than ever, I
am appealing for you to get involved with
your club. Find an activity that you really
enjoy and see how you can help make it
enjoyable for your fellow club members.
You will have so much more enjoyment
when you do so. Yes YOUR CLUB WANTS
YOU . . . to get involved.
Shifting gears on you, I want to discuss the Drivers’
Education program that your club operates. If you
enjoy driving your Porsche fast, but do not want to endanger
yourself and others, or risk
getting expensive tickets from the
speed enforcement folks, we have
a great program for you: DE. Your
initial event and every event thereafter,
begins with a classroom training
session. There are several such
sessions after that. We have a great
group of instructors who ride with
you during all of your sessions until
you are qualified to drive alone (i.e.,
Solo). In fact, the first session, they
will gently drive your car to gauge its
capabilities. You can also request to
ride with your instructor in his/her
SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor
1235 William D. Tate Ave
Grapevine, TX 76051
car to see how they do it. (That was one of the most
advantageous things I did at my first DE.)
One concern folks have is consumables, like brakes
and tires. If you only run one or two DEs a year, you
probably will not have much issue with these. If you do
more events, you will go through tires and brakes at a
higher rate, but it will be worth it. So consider it, and
if it sounds good, get registered, get a tech inspection
(most dealers and shops do it for free), and come on
Mav of the Month
As I mentioned previously, we had a member pass away
recently. Bob Benson was the Safety Chair for our Drivers’
Education events. He was responsible for making
sure the track was safe before every event. He arranged
for all the corner workers for all DEs.
He made several other contributions
to the activities of your club as you
will read elsewhere. I was going to
name him Mav of the Month after
the spring session of DEs, but due to
his untimely death, I am naming him
Mav of the Month now. The gift card
for Silver Fox was sent to Patricia
Benson, his widow. Bob, we appreciate
everything you have done for
your club and our members, and we
will miss you.

Your Name Here!
Around the Bend...
By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor
Moving into the editor’s chair
for Slipstream would be an
intimidating task for anyone,
unless, of course, you have the previous
editor standing with you like I do.
Carey Spreen has helped shepherd this
award winning magazine for the past
three years and continues to perform
an important role even in his “retirement”.
He is the chief grammar and spelling enforcer!
Not only that, as I enter into just my second year as
a member of the Maverick Region, Carey serves as my
historian – he knows so many members that if we need
a photo, some missing information, or even how to contact
another member – Carey has all of the answers!
So, what can you expect from me as the day-to-day
editor of Slipstream? Certainly no big change since this
formula has proven to be so successful. But there is a
reason I chose “Around the Bend” for my column
heading each month.
As you drive your Porsche, you always want to
be aware of what’s ahead, not what is passing by
or what you’ve already passed. This is essential to
great driving, whether on a road course or an autocross,
and especially on the highway and in town. As you’ve
heard from your track instructor many times, “You don’t
steer the car with your hands, you steer with your eyes.”
If you continue steering with your eyes, you’ll make the
minor adjustments necessary to correct the car’s path,
which becomes paramount if you’re off-road and a tree
or tire wall is looming in your path! Hmmm, just talking
about driving makes me want to read this issue and look
for our Autocross results and upcoming Gimmick Rally,
DE, AX, and Saturday Drive events!
I’ll use that philosophy for all issues of Slipstream as
well. I’ll look “around the bend” to what is coming on
the club horizon and make sure our members have a
chance to read about it here each month. To be even
more timely, I’ll post regularly to our club Facebook
group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/mavpca/
and provide daily updates to remind you of club
and other Porsche events and news via our Twitter
feed at https://twitter.com/MaverickPCA
and hashtag of #mavpca. Read on to see what’s
“around the bend” in this month’s issue!

Gimme a Minute: April Board Meeting
By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary April 1, 2015
at 7:00pm. He
reported on the
passing of Bob Benson.
Bob has been
named as Maverick
of the Month posthumously.
Jim encouraged every
Event Chair to work with someone
who could replace them if something
went wrong. He proposed that
the July board meeting be cancelled,
which was approved.
Secretary Wendy Shoffit told everyone
that her family was finally
taking the trip to Germany they won
in 2013, but will be back in time for
the April Drivers’ Education Event,
which has 75 students signed up.
We expect more to sign up the week
leading up to the event. We are also
discussing ways to improve interest
in DE. Registration is open (register.
pca.org) for the Club Race and DE
at COTA May 8-10. Visitors are also
Online versions of Slipstream contain
links for advertisers. Readers
can click the ads and it will take
them to the advertiser’s website.
We get reports of the number of
click-throughs, providing an added
value to advertisers. Every two years
we publish a printed membership
directory, which will be printed
this year. Jim Hirsch will help lead
that charge. Members can opt out,
if they choose, but must request to
do so. Details later. Lastly, the board
voted to donate $100 to the Hope
House in honor of Bob Benson and
Charles Machala, father of DE instructors
Chuck and Tim Machala.
Autocross Chair Wes Lincoln reported
that there have been three
autocrosses this year. They’ve been
well attended, except for PCA members.
He wants to encourage PCAers
to get out there! He proposed having
an autocross event at the end
of a rally or tour, maybe to Mineral
Wells. The next event will be an
Autocross School Saturday, May 30
in MW. Students of the school get
free entry to the following day’s
Autocross, which will be a “mirrorcross”
event, with two mirror-image
courses being run for a total time.
Concours Chair Andy Kay has a detailing
demo scheduled for April 25
at Jack’s Garage. Saturday, May 2 is
May at Mayo’s, which will include a
People’s Choice Concours. Sunday,
June 7 is Autos in the Park, which
will be a judged event. He continues
to have great concours medals
and will purchase several “Best of”
awards for May at Mayo’s. He has
also been getting great kits from
Griot’s Garage to give away at various
events. He will also be writing
feature articles for Slipstream.
Treasurer Richard Solomon has
been getting training from our past
Treasurer, but still has a learning
curve. We received a nice subsidy
check from National, which will help
future events. We have a strong financial
position, with over $109k in
the bank currently. Some Slipstream
advertisers still have an outstanding
balance, but sponsorships are current.
He suggested members could
go to Houston for the Concours of
Texas event April 24-25, featuring
vintage Porsches this year.
Social Chair Tracy Robertson has
everything set for May at Mayo’s, including
the popular On the Border
PR Chair Linda Bambina praised
Jim Hirsch for jumping in and doing
a great job with Slipstream. He is on
top of everything. She encouraged
photographers in the club to submit
VERTICAL shots for possible use as
Slipstream covers. She is also looking
for additional names of people
to feature in her “It’s the People”
Slipstream Layout Editor Jim Hirsch
reported that the issues currently
have plenty of content, which is
great. Unfortunately, this causes
some articles to be delayed. He requests
that when people submit photos
of people, please include names.
He thanked Carey Spreen for continuing
to do the “heavy lifting.” Jim
has the Twitter account fully functional,
for upcoming events to followers.
Slipstream Content Editor Carey
Spreen noted that he and Jim have
separated the job into layout versus
content. They increased printing
to 1,750 copies/month. We have
been sending issues to non-renewed
members for months, which we will
now review. He will work with Membership
Co-Chairs to contact nonrenewals
before they stop getting
Slipstream. He also mentioned that
online classified ads are way out of
date. We will work with webmaster
Denny Payne towards a solution.
Rallymaster Don Sebert is putting
on a Gimmick Rally on Saturday,
April 25. George Luxbacher has
agreed to step up to be Rally Co-
Chair with Don, allowing Neill
Flood to focus on Sunday Drives.
The April rally will end at the Frisco
Historic Museum, which now contains
the exhibits from the old Age
of Steam Railroad Museum at Fair
Park. Attendees will enjoy a tour of
the museum and possibly dinner at
Babe’s Chicken. He will have prizes
for the top three finishers.
“Calendar Boy” Brendan Eagan
has been making improvements to
online calendar items, including
pictures and hyperlinks.
Tech Session Chair Ed Mullenix
had a great event March 21 showing
entrants how to do a DE pre-tech inspection.
Will work to plan a “Tops
and Dogs” event for convertible top
care sometime, probably in July.
Sunday Drive Co-Chairs Neill
Flood and Tom Martin reported the
first drive of the year had 42 cars,
despite bad weather. They had great
feedback. April 18 was the next one,
through the Ennis-area bluebonnets,
with a group photo opportunity.
Saturday, May 30 will be a drive
to Rancho Sereno in Whitesboro,
which includes great newly-paved
Farm to Market roads. They need
RSVPs for that one by Saturday, May
23 because it will be catered.
Travis Howard held an Autocross
Awards Banquet on Feb. 21. Thanks
to Linda for her help arranging everything.
Guest Daniel Amado is a new DE
instructor and wants to encourage
more DE students. He is working
with the DE team.
Guest Bob Kramer recently has
gotten involved in DEs and suggested
we improve communication
to potential entrants. We offer tons
of instruction for not much money,
compared to others out there, plus
it’s a lot of fun! Suggested posting videos via YouTube
to get more information out there.
Guest Gabriel Chacin is a new member and is enjoying
the club and Slipstream.
Membership Co-Chairs Tom and Susan Froehlich reported
a new all-time high of 1,554 primary members
and 2,398 total (tied for best overall). Stephanie Ho offered
to help contact non-renewals to improve membership
DE Chair Chris Tabor said that event entries have
been lower than expected this year. He is working on
improvements, including getting better messages out
to potential “newbies.” Many promotions last year increased
attendance in higher run groups, which is
good. He will write an article advertising DEs. Tom F.
suggested we add links to existing videos to our website
instead of having to create our own. More single day
events were suggested as being popular.
Monthly Social Chair Stephanie Ho said the Hilton
Garden Inn event was very popular, with over 85 attendees.
The hotel was generous with discounts and will
welcome us back. The May event at Lavendou will also
feature great discounts and a cocktail party. Stephanie
needs RSVPs, if possible, and encourages people to
show up if they say they are coming. Dress is not casual.
She thanks Porsche Plano for providing calendars and
auto show tickets as giveaways. She’s working with local
restaurants who do NOT have a minimum overall order
or per person cost.
Meeting was adjourned.

“ . . . it’s the people”: James Shoffit—Major Maverick Contributor
As Told to Linda Bambina by James Shoffit

his own interview!
Plus he is a rare

to, learn from, and
laugh with. He has a Maverick Corealways
trying something new and sharing
My Dad was in oil exploration so
we moved all the time – 10 schools
by 5th grade. (I was never social until
I met Wendy.) I loved math as a
kid and was “who’s-who” for Math
in both middle and high school. I
was a self-taught programmer in 6th
grade when I had to write all my own
games for a computer my dad and I
put together. I also went to regional
competitions for Rubik’s Cube solving,
to round out the nerd picture.
My dad always had Volkswagens and
talked about Porsches all the time.
Always wanted to put a Porsche engine
in whatever VW we had at the
time. My dad and I rebuilt the engine
in the ’66 VW he bought new
just before I was born, and that was
the car I drove through high school.
We also dropped the engine many
times to replace the clutches I would
burn out. Learned all types of car
stuff from my dad.
While at college as a computer science
major (surprise, surprise), got
a job running NTSU’s computers
and in 1989 met Wendy on THEnet
(precursor to the internet). She was
at A&M and I was at NTSU, and
we met in an online forum where I
helped her transfer some computer
programs from one system to another
in College Station. She asked
how she could repay me, and I suggested
lunch. Three months later, I
proposed. I was a Senior (5th year)
and she was a Freshman. Married
the next year.
We wanted to wait to have a kid
until: 1) we could afford it, 2) we
had plenty of time, and 3) we had
a house. We bought a house in our
sixth year of marriage, and realized
the first two were never going to
happen, so we had Jasmine. Which
meant a baby seat. Which wouldn’t
fit in the back of my Mitsubishi
3000GT. We loved watching autocrossing,
and wanted to try it out, so
car shopping was going to be fun!
Viper, NSX, both out (too small,
no back seat). Went to a Porsche
dealership and had to scoot the seat
CLOSER to reach the pedals. Finally
a car built for me! I didn’t want to
buy a 911 since I had wanted one
since I was a kid. I had enjoyed that
dream for so long, I didn’t know
what I would dream of if it came
true. (Later I found out you always
want one more Porsche than you
have.) So Wendy talked me into
buying our first Porsche – a 1990 C4
Cabriolet. And we autocrossed the
wheels off that car for years.
Our first PCA meeting was the New
Member Party 1998. I went looking
for the autocrossers and found
them! That was an integral part of
our lives for many years. The second
Porsche we still have – 1978 911 that
I bought to be an autocrosser/club
racer is still in use for that purpose
at a number of events every year.
I was President of Maverick Region
from 2001 to 2002. Then I turned
the reins over to Keith Olcha so I
could focus on Parade 2004, for
which we had won the bid. I spent
the next two years developing the
software for Autocross scoring and
Tech Quiz scoring. They still use
a variant of the Tech Quiz scoring
software I developed at Parade.
Parade 2004 in Fort Worth saw me
oversee all the scoring, collecting
the data, presenting it to Mark Shevitz,
the Emcee, and putting it on
Photo courtesy of Linda Bambina
the website. I continue to do this, as
well as all banquet presentations, for
Parade every year.
I was also President again for two
more years (2008 - 2009). I also did
our local autocross timing and scoring
from 2000 through 2009. I won
the Selcer Award in 2010, and was
the Zone 5 Rep from 2009 to 2012,
which is THE best job in PCA. Very
busy, but a ridiculous amount of
fun. During this time I assisted Bryan
Henderson with setting up the
Circuit of the Americas club race,
which is a joint effort by Maverick
Region, Hill Country (Austin area),
and Lone Star (Houston area) regions
James and “Ebony”
I started club racing in 2004 and
2005 and couldn’t afford to do it the
way I wanted. In 2010 my business
was growing and so I was able to
start it up again and raced TWS,
ECR, and Hallett. In 2011 I added
Heartland Park to the schedule, and
in 2012 I picked up Sebring, Watkins
Glen, and Road America. In
2013 I added NOLA and COTA to
the list. The year 2014 saw us visiting
colleges, and 2015 will have us getting
Jasmine sent off to college, so
maybe no new tracks this year. But
we do want to do a west coast tour
soon with Laguna Seca being the
crown jewel out west. High Plains
needs to make the list someday, as
does Mid Ohio, and VIR. All in good
Tech Corner: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!
By Ed Mullenix, Tech Chair
Something that we Porsche owners
might take for granted is how
desirable a Porsche is. For those
whose checkbook allows them to enjoy
the latest offerings, I am absolutely envious!
Until I get much better at picking
lottery numbers, I will be among
the many who seek out a nice used
Porsche. The problem, it seems, is what constitutes a
“nice” pre-owned Porsche.
Understanding that some degree of compromise is in
order, how does one make the distinction between a car
that meets our criteria and be reliable, and one that has
the potential to be the proverbial financial and emotional
“black hole”? The market for used Porsches is
quite strong, so even high-mileage older cars command
premium prices. The late Bruce Anderson devoted a
section in several of his books describing what to look
for when contemplating purchasing a used Porsche.
Bruce’s subjects were mostly air-cooled 911s, but many
of the items to inspect translate to the newer watercooled
cars as well.
Body rust damage from driving in areas that use a lot
of road salt in the winter can be a huge and expensive
problem. We are fortunate here in the southwest, because
rarely do we see road salt (yes, TXDOT has started
using salt!). There are few inexpensive parts on a
Porsche, so the mechanical condition of the drive train
is extremely important.
When an older air-cooled engine was nearing the end
of its service life, it would start to smoke. Any Porsche
since 1978 came with a catalytic convertor on the exhaust.
You will not see exhaust oil smoke coming from
a warmed-up Porsche equipped with a convertor. I had
two 996 cars brought to my shop with oil consumption
complaints. I removed the spark plugs in order to perform
a cylinder leakage test. The oil ash deposited on
the plugs hinted that the cylinder leakage results would
not be good. They were not. A sound engine will exhibit
no more than 5%-10% leakage. Porsche allows up to
20% but at that value, it is pretty much worn out and
burning a quart of oil in less than 200 miles.
The owners of both of the 996s mentioned had purchased
their cars less than 2000 miles earlier. One had
found their treasure on “EBAY” and the other from the
used car lot of a local new car dealership. Neither came
with any warranty. Upon removal and disassembly of
the engines, I discovered that both had been severely
overheated. Without adequate cooling, the aluminum
pistons expand to the point that they become larger in
diameter than the cylinder. The result is a “galled” cylinder
(large deep scratches) and ruined pistons.
The engines of both of the 996s had been repaired
by the previous owners. Rather than a proper (and unfortunately
expensive) repair, the previous owners had
the engines “patched” well enough to unload them on
someone. The cylinders were honed to flatten out some
of the scratches and new piston rings installed. The
engines actually ran quite well in spite of their compromised
condition. The oil consumption was the tip-off
that things were not well. Neither owner had their car
checked out prior to their purchase.
I routinely get requests from folks wanting a pre-purchase
inspection of a car they are considering. I have
upset a bunch of used car lots here in town. I do NOT
sell cars, I service and repair cars. I can, with a clear
conscience, state that I try to be objective about the condition
of any car that I inspect, but I do not have x-ray
vision, nor can I predict the future. Many of the shops
that advertise in Slipstream share that same philosophy.
Imagine paying market price for a ’99 996, which is
around $18k, and a couple of months later, drop another
$8k-$10k into an engine repair. To be fair, the
used car lot that sold one of the cars took it in on trade
for a new car. The car ran well and had good paint and
interior. They got “taken” but did not suffer any pain
once they sold it.
I prefer to buy cars from private sellers (local, not
EBAY!). Usually, the seller has owned the car for some
time and has records of the maintenance. Used car lots
usually do not provide the service history compiled by
the previous owner, even if the previous owner provided
it. Ponder the following: There is no such thing as too
much profit! The car lot does not want you to know
what they paid the previous owner for his car. Service
records usually contain names, phone numbers, etc, so
no, you won’t be getting any of those.
Used car lots find a lot of their cars at the local wholesale
auctions. If a car was not marketable at a dealership,
it gets sent to the auction. I have seen a lot of scary
offerings come from the auction. Probably the best
used Porsches come as “Certified Pre-Owned” from the
local Porsche dealers. The CPO program is limited to
cars that have recently exceeded the original factory
Wherever you find your dream Porsche, be it a private
seller or a used car lot, I cannot over emphasize the importance
of having it checked out
BEFORE you buy it. If it comes from
a lot, and sans any maintenance records,
consider purchasing an aftermarket
used car warranty. They are
really expensive but not near so as a
catastrophic engine or transmission

Autocross Series: Wanna Autocross for Free? Keep Reading!
By Wesley Lincoln, Region Autocross Chair
For two Sundays in succession in
March, the Maverick Region and
Equipe Rapide joined together to
put on back-to-back exciting Autocross
Events at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie.
The parking lot at Lone Star Park
is a perfect place to watch and enjoy
DFW’s premier autocross participants.
For anyone who has the slightest urge
to participate, this is the group to join.
I want to send out a huge thanks to all the Porsche
Enthusiasts for their support of these events. Both days
were a huge success, and the action was non-stop for
seven hours. Special thanks to Sigrid Schnoerr for organizing
Because I believe you’ll enjoy it if you try it, here is a
special offer. On Saturday, May 30, we will be offering
an Autocross School at the famed MineralRing. You can
spend a day learning the (turn) ins and (turn) outs of
one of the safest ways to enjoy a Porsche. The spacious
venue at the Mineral Wells Airport was once home to
one of the country’s most advanced helicopter training
centers for the Vietnam Conflict. Now it plays host to
Autocross and Time Trial events for many of the car
clubs in the North Texas Area. This place is BIG, SAFE,
FUN, and MEMORABLE.
But back to the point: the Autocross School is the perfect
way to learn how to autocross, and you will receive
a full day of instruction for the low cost of $40. But it
gets better. Every Autocross School participant will be
able to run the autocross event on Sunday, May 31 FOR
FREE. But wait, there’s more: The autocross will not be
the same event it usually is. It will be THE MOST EX-
CITING AUTOCROSS EVENT OF THE YEAR!!!!!!
This event will be a Mirrorcross. This format begins
with a 1/8-mile drag race that uses “Christmas Tree”
lights for the start, just like “Big Daddy” Don Garlits.
You will start next to another competitor, accelerate to
the end of the drag strip, then turn away from each
other into mirror-image autocross courses. As soon as
you are finished, you will line up and go again -- on the
opposite side. Twice the number of competitors running
at once equals twice the number of runs. SIMPLY
FANTASTIC. Please don’t miss it. See you at the course!

John Robert (Bob) Benson: Born February 4, 1950; Died March 13, 2015
By Joe McGlohen and Patricia Benson
You may not have known that Bob
• Also known as “J. Bob” and “Devious
Bob” the Rallyemaster
• A student and teacher of science
• A musician
• A composer
• A physicist
• An astronomer
• A computer wizard of the highest
• A motorsports enthusiast to the
• And above all a good son and a
I first met Bob in 1981. He was one
of four extremely talented computer
wizards working for ARCO
Oil and Gas. Together, they could
accomplish the very difficult and
deliver it tomorrow, or the impossible
next week, or at the latest, by
the week after. They were not quite
housebroken, so ARCO decided
they needed someone to change the
newspapers on their office floors a
couple of time a week, and also document
their “miraculous creations.”
So I became their Tech Writer.
Bob caught in
a rare moment
My first initiation
razor wit was
when I stepped
into the doorway
to his office
“May I ask you
a question?” Of
course he replied
did!” I learned
right then to be a lot more precise
in my conversations with Bob.
A year or so later I got trapped into
writing a rallye for MR/PCA, and
Bob, with a friend of his, agreed
to cold run the rallye. He became
fascinated with that aspect of motorsport,
and wrote many rallies
for MR/PCA, with and without my
help, from the mid-1980s through
the early 1990s, when interest in
the sport finally died for the second
Bob enjoyed the motorsports and
the mathematics aspects of Rallye.
The Benson brothers: Bob and Paul
at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit
He was a staff member on the Great
American Race antique car rallye,
and its smaller regional offshoots
like One Lap of Texas. He loved Pro
Eurostyle off-road rallying. I fact, he
loved rallye so much that his Yahoo
handle was “Transitzone” on many
One memorable rallye moment
came when we were working on a
rallye route that went south from
Slidell, very near where Eagles Canyon
Raceway is today. We were in my
little red 914. He was in the right
seat taking notes. It had been a very
wet spring. We came around a bend
and there was this shiny ribbon of
water and moss about four or five
feet wide snaking across the road in
the middle of the “S”. I tried to neutral
the car to no avail, and in the
blink of an eye, all you could see out
Photos courtesy of Patricia Benson
of the front, back, and sides of the
car was white tire smoke. The car
quickly came to rest, driver’s right
in a bar ditch, with the nose and tail
in the top mud and the wheels off
the ground. Bob looked over at me
and asked “Are you done?” I truly
believe he had ice water in his veins.
We investigated and found that
a culvert across the bar ditch had
become clogged with trash, and the
water flowing off of a well fertilized
farmer’s field jumped onto the road
and the algae (or moss) grew abundantly.
A farmer with a tractor rescued
us, and we didn’t tell anyone
for several years, especially not the
wives, for fear of losing our kitchen
Maverick Region did a few track
events in the mid-1980s at the old
Green Valley Raceway track north
of Fort Worth, but when it closed we
were locally trackless. Bob started
attending Drivers’ Education events
and instructed for Maverick, Hill
Country, and Lone Star Regions,
and soon began working corners
for SCCA and PCA track events, He
worked several Houston Grand Prix
Pro races and had worked every Formula
1 and professional race ever
held at Circuit of the Americas. He
was a station chief at the most recent
Formula 1 event.
Bob and Sybil at Texas

non-work (napping) on a corner
I had the pleasure of working with
Bob professionally in a variety of
roles from 1981 to 1991, and again
in 2001-2002. I worked with him
in motorsports and other hobbies
from 1981 onward. He was ironclad
reliable. If he made a commitment,
he delivered. If you were a project or
program manager and he had skin
in the game, you need not worry.
His status reports were accurate, and
if there were problems, you heard
about them in a timely fashion, and
usually with a recommended solution.
No one could ask for better. In
his roles in motorsport the same was
true. He always delivered.
I believe that in the professional
world he was most proud of being
the head of Data Security at the
Superconducting Supercollider. He
loved science, and he truly believed
that the Supercollider Program
would be the foundation for mankind’s
first interstellar travel.

looking to help members as needed
He was also an avid photographer.
His nephew Paul harvested a small
portion of his photography for the
slide show we had running at his celebration
of life. It contained almost
2600 pictures. There are more, but
they were “offline,” and time constraints
prevented including them.

Bob and Pat, circa 1988
I know our friends will remember
that I used to say, with much exasperation
and gesticulation in the
direction of the sky, that he was living
out there somewhere on planet
Zeus. Well, there is not such a planet,
but he really did live there. He
was absolutely under the spell of the
larger universe – far beyond what
his camera lens could reach. And I
loved him for it, and sometimes in
spite of it.
His best job ever was with the Supercollider
– which, as Joe reminded
me, he thought would be an answer
for interstellar travel. I remember
how excited he was about getting
the job there – how he took a group
of friends on a tour around the facility,
how happy to be there – so close
to a dream – he was.
Follower of Isaac Asimov and Ray
Bradbury – he introduced me to the
worlds of Science Fiction – so much
of which is not fiction now. The
Martian Chronicles is pure magic –
if you have not read them, try them
I had never looked through a telescope
until I met him – and we spent
hours, mostly in the cold because
cold nights were the clearest, at Astronomy
labs, stopping the police
cars to get them to turn their lights
off before they ruined everyone’s
“The Planets” by Holst was in his
music collection, and now in the
possession of one of his nephews.
His screen saver was the latest intergalactic
images from NASA, from
Voyager and other missions.
Carl Sagan closed his book, the
“Pale Blue Dot” with this:
“It has been said that astronomy is a
humbling and character-building experience.
There is perhaps no better demonstration
of the folly of human conceits
than this distant image of our tiny world.
To me, it underscores our responsibility to
deal more kindly with one another, and
to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot,
the only home we’ve ever known.”
Don’t let this picture fool
you. Bob always knew where
he wanted to end up
Now our friend is enjoying a view
we do not have – looking at us –
from the universe.

Maverick Tech Session: DE Pre-Tech Inspection
By Mr. Goodwrench
Photos by the Author
Ed Mullenix was kind enough to
open up his shop on Saturday
morning, March 21, to fellow
Maverick members for a workshop to
detail what is involved in the mandatory
Tech Inspection required to participate
in a PCA High Performance
Driver Education event.
About a dozen Mavericks entered the lobby of Mullenix
Motorsports and were greeted by Ed’s lovely wife
Donna, who graciously supplied us with a Continental
style breakfast of doughnuts, bagels and cream cheeses,
and jugs of fresh hot coffee.
were parked; one an organ donor, the other a temporarily
suspended project car. I really hate to see those
Ed checking the half shafts on Carey Spreen’s 911SC.
“Any breakfast that’s free is a good breakfast!”
Shortly afterwards, we were all ushered into the inner
sanctum. Ed’s shop doesn’t look like the plush factory
emporiums run by the big players, or the sterile
precision works of the bigger specialty shops. No, Ed’s
shop reminds me of the small cottage industry shops
I encountered while in England; the original Van Diemen
works and the Scholar engine plant come to mind.
And the Cooper F1 and Tyrell F1 teams were birthed in
shops just like this.
It harkens back to a time was gas when 29¢ a gallon,
a time when mechanics actually repaired a car rather
than just replaced parts, when they knew how to adjust
a set of points or valves; when a garage owner kept a
live air hose snaked through a bay door for people who
might need to air up their tires in the middle of the
night. The only things missing were an old time Coke
cooler loaded up with 5¢ Dr. Peppers, and a cat. Good
On the lifts sat a 930 Turbo and a 997 Carrera awaiting
an engine. A 912 restoration shell with fresh Mexico
Blue paintwork rested in a corner. Against the wall, a
996 that had seen better days lay forlornly. In another
corner, a 914 project car. Out back, two stagnant 944s;
I also spotted a bead blaster, and a brand new flow
bench, still in its packing crate, ready to complement
the in-house machine shop.
PCA requires that Tech Inspections be conducted by
approved shops, which are normally done gratis. Selfconducted
inspection is not recognized by the club.
Ed went through a typical inspection, not only to show
what is involved in a proper inspection, but also so that
drivers could conduct their own personal inspection
AFTER a DE and possibly avoid some trouble spots.
The demonstration started with the braking system,
arguably the most important system of your Porsche,
outside of steering. I have never heard of a steering failure
in a Porsche, so brakes make it to the top of the list.
After all, if your brakes fail, it isn’t the speed that can
hurt you. It’s not being able to stop that does.
Ed showed us a pair of rotors, effectively wasted after a
DE, and advised on how to determine if there is enough
brake pad left to withstand the rigors of a DE. Depending
on the pad and the aggressiveness of a driver’s
braking, over 40% of the brake pad’s materials can be
All the bullet points of an inspection were covered,
some more thoroughly than others, as several of them
require minimal effort.
The session ended with a discussion about battery
maintenance and the delicate, but simple, intricacies of
a water-cooled Porsche’s cooling system.
I’m sure that everyone who attended took away something
from this workshop; I certainly did. Thanks Ed
Sunday Drive: “Wings Over Dallas” – Cavanaugh Flight Museum

“Good morning, Mr. Phelps.
“Recent intelligence from our operatives
