Sprockets: Coming this Spring
By David Robertson, Region President
n North Texas, February is always a hard
month to call as far as weather goes. One
day I could be sitting by my pool writing
Sprockets in 75-degree sunny weather as I
am now, and tomorrow there could be six inches of
snow and ice on the ground. I for one am always ready
to go out for a drive in my 911 this time of the year
whenever there is a good day for it. If you need a good
excuse to get out, we always have a couple of lunches
during the month where we meet up, and at least one
happy hour/dinner. If you follow the various social media
outlets that we use, you will see from time to time
impromptu gatherings for coffee, lunch, drinks, or cigars
-- pretty much anything that gives us a good excuse
to get together on a nice day. Many of these impromptu
or even semi-planned gatherings are not Maverick PCA
sanctioned events, but we just enjoy getting together
for just about any reason!
Registration is open for the Spring Treffen in The
Hill Country. These new Treffens are national multiday
PCA events (replacing the previous PCA Escapes)
with driving tours as well as fun non-driving events such
as winery and brewery visits, a tour of some of the food
trucks that Austin is so famous for, and other great options.
The Hill Country Treffen will be held March 29
through April 2 at the Lost Pines Resort east of Austin.
The fall Treffen will be in Asheville, NC.
Coming the last weekend of February is our first big
driving event which is a Drivers’ Education out at MotorSport
Ranch. There is also the Carrera of the Americas
PCA Club Race and Advanced DE sponsored by the
Maverick, Hill Country, and Lone Star Regions at Circuit
of The Americas in Austin, March 3-5. This takes
the place of the previous TWS race. You may notice
that the Carrera of the Americas event has been moved
so it doesn’t conflict with Mother’s Day anymore!
I have been asked a couple of times how I came up
with the name Sprockets for my column. It certainly
stands to reason that sprockets come to mind when
we are discussing any of the Porsche automobiles. In
the past, you could see them right there on the engine
performing various tasks. Now when I look behind the
rear deck lid of a newer 911 there doesn’t even seem
to be an engine to look at. But, as I reminisce about
the olden days when Porsches had engines that were
visible to the naked eye, I also reflect on the old Saturday
Night Live skit named Sprockets that was a spoof
on German seriousness, efficiency, and precision, and
always included a certain monkey. If you are not familiar
with this particular skit then you need to look it up
because I cannot explain it to you.

As always, we are looking for volunteers and I am
certain we can find a place for you. Please contact our
Volunteer coordinator Jimmy Gallegos at volunteers@
mavpca.org. I look forward to seeing all of you at one
of our great events this month!
MAV OF THE MONTH: Chris Flaugh
Chris is one of our relatively recent Maverick members
who almost immediately looked for a way to get
more involved and contribute to our club activities. As
it turned out, we needed someone to chair our Goodie
Store effort and Chris took on that challenge without
hesitation. When you order your Maverick name tag,
that’s Chris who gets the process going and sees that
your name tag arrives quickly. In addition, he has
helped move our club store into its use of our new Maverick
logo and works with PCA on the items available to
order. His most recent Porsche is a 30-year old extremely
original red 924S, and he also has a 31-year-old
Alfa Romeo to keep him busy. Congratulations Chris!

2017 Maverick Region Board - Officers and Chairs
David fell in love with the Porsche
911 when, as a child, he would have
his parents stop by the old Forest Lane
Porsche in Dallas so he could dream of
someday owning one. He bought his
first Porsche 911 in 2011. He and his
wife Tracy enjoy being active members
in the Maverick Region.
Jim joined Maverick Region in August,
2008. He drives a 2003 996, which is
the third Porsche he has owned. Jim
enjoys attending Maverick Region
social and driving events.
Wendy and husband James joined
Maverick Region in 1997, when their
daughter was only 9 months old.
Jasmine is now in college. They own
three Porsches including a 1978 911SC
as a dedicated racecar, which she enjoys
autocrossing. Her daily driver is a 2016
Richard joined Maverick Region in
2012 when he fulfilled a 30+ year

Gimme a Minute: January Board Meeting
By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary January 4, 2016
he meeting began at
7:01 pm with new President
explaining he would
continue the “around the room”
board meeting format. The Zone 5
meeting will be held this year Feb.
17-18 in Grapevine and invited the
board members. It’s a great opportunity
to get to know the region
presidents. He mentioned the upcoming
joint DEs at COTA with the
BMW Club in May and November.
Registration is now open for the
Treffen Hill Country, taking place
3/29 - 4/2. Also coming up is our
All Member Party (AMP) January
28. He would also like to revive our
tech sessions, although we don’t
currently have an event chair. He is
taking suggestions. Andy Kay will do
a detailing one. Several mentioned
ideas to enhance the program.
Treasurer Richard Solomon
joined the meeting via speaker
phone. He is keeping a close tab on
the financial side and will publish
the region’s financial statement in
Slipstream. We have ~$130K in the
bank currently, which is down slightly
from last year. There are some
outstanding invoices needing to be
collected. Expenses were higher
this year, mostly attributable to track
Guests Leslie and Michael Flores
have been in the club for 4 - 5
months. They are looking forward
to becoming more involved.
Social Co-Chair Phyllis Gallegos
has been ill for a few months, but
is feeling better and looking forward
to the upcoming AMP. She
will try very hard to have the entire
front parking lot areas reserved for
Volunteer Chair Jimmy Gallegos
is always looking for people to help
out, even at the AMP (parking,
check in, etc). He is adding Tech
Session chair to his list of openings.
Tours Co-Chair Bill Orr has been
working on custom PCA license
plates. We have 291 people who
registered interest out of the 400
needed with only a small effort. He
has worked on updating an interactive
version of Slipstream. The January
issue has had 1300 views already.
Editor Jim Hirsch has been producing
40 page issues for 12 months
now, which only features content
from our members. He is thankful
for that and hope it continues. He
is looking for an editor-in-training.
He reported for Membership Chair
John Hamilton that we have 1,687
primary and 860 affiliate members
for a total of 2,547.
Autocross Chair Mark Schnoerr
reported that our program with
Equipe Rapide will continue for this
year. The BMW club is also looking
to share some events with us, including
the COTA DEs. He wants to
include links to other AX programs
from our website to make sure our
members are informed. The Lone
Star Park venue has been temporarily
lost due to a Cirque du Soleil
show and they are looking for other
sites. He might want to try to do another
Time Trial at MSR on the 1.3
Drivers’ Education Chair Chris
Tabor is beginning his fourth year
in that position. He thinks that the
joint region and joint club events at
COTA will be a great opportunity
for all. The DE dates for the year are
set. He mentioned the possibility of
a Track Night and maybe incorporating
a Time Trial event with a DE.
Will visit other events to get ideas.
Rally Chair Don Sebert is glad
to have help from several others,
including George Luxbacher, John
Harvey, and Jeff Sebert. Two rallies
have been set for the year and might
do one more. He will have information
by the All Member Party and
will submit it to the online calendar.
New Vice President Jim Falgout
said that he has insurance handled
for events coming up.
Club Race Registrar Wendy Shoffit
mentioned we had a great Club
Race, despite lower than normal
turnout. We still have some Yeti
mugs for sale, if board members or
others are interested.
Webmaster James Shoffit said we
have been making improvements to
the website. He requested calendar
changes be emailed to calendar@
mavpca.org to make sure all parties
got the information needed.
He questioned if the lunch in Richardson
was still getting attendees;
the answer seems to be “not many.”
Maybe need to cancel that one?
Calendar Chair Karl Poulsen also
reiterated James’ request. He is doing
his best to keep up with requests
as they come up.
Monthly Social Chair Stephanie
Ho has the February Valentine’s
event set for Lavendou Restaurant
in Plano on Thursday, February
9, rather than the normal week. It
might be the last year at the venue.
Slipstream Content Editor and
Punctuation Czar Carey Spreen
mentioned that the digitizing of
all past issues might take a year to
complete, according to UNT. He
also interviewed Al Zim for his 50th
Anniversary this month and will interview
Ed Mayo for his 50th next
Tour Chair Tom Martin reported
that we had five events last year. The
largest had 111 Porsches and 183
people in attendance. Events averaged
70 cars and 114 people. He
commented that the updated mav.
pca.org website is fantastic and recommends
we all visit it. He is stepping
down to allow Bill Orr to take
the reins this year.
Guest Dan Amado has been
in PCA for 25 years, mostly in the
northeast, but has been a Maverick
since 2010. He has been a DE instructor now for a few
years and is looking forward to getting more involved.
Safety Chair Bob Kramer is working to make offroad
excursions at DE events safer by insisting on car
inspections afterwards. He plans to utilize Doghouse
Performance at the track to help in this endeavor.
Social Chair Tracy Robertson asked to make sure
that everyone RSVPs for board meetings, even if they
don’t plan to eat. Seating and beverages need to be considered.
She’s working with Phyllis for the All Member
Party and is preparing for event chair presentations.
David Robertson finished by saying he is always looking
for questions or ideas to his email address. Lastly,
he announced that Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh is
the Maverick of the Month. Congratulations!

Historicizing Porsche: Ferdinand’s Earliest Innovations
By Ash Seidl-Staley
Photos contributed as noted
orsche has an amazing history. For over 118
years, developments and innovations from
the Porsche brand, the Porsche business,
and the Porsche family have posited many
In 1899 Ferdinand Porsche built the world’s first
hybrid electric vehicle (the Lohner-Porsche, “Semper
Vivus”). Twenty years later, and after realizing size and
speed correlate, Ferdinand worked with Austro-Daimler
developing race cars. One such petite car dubbed
“Sascha,” though out-sized and out-powered by the
competition, garnered a miraculous success. It won 43
races in its career, including the 1922 Targa Florio!
By 1939, Ferdinand had
launched Volkswagen and
already become a leader
in the German automobile
industry. He continued his
drive for innovation by designing
type 80. The project had
high hopes of achieving
a land speed of over 470
Photo from Biography.com
mph, a speed that would
have shattered all records
at the time and wouldn’t
be realized until the late 1950s, but the start of World
War II crushed the project. Ferdinand also designed
racing cars for Auto Union. The Auto Union P (the P
designating Porsche’s involvement) was powered by a
16-cylinder behemoth and was driven by two of racing’s
greatest drivers, Hans Stuck and Tazio Nuvolari.
The war temporarily halted Ferdinand’s infatuation
with racing, but his inventive gene continued to
flourish. In 1942 he helped design the VK4501 tank,
aka the Tiger P. Although production of the tank was
never picked up by the German military, some chassis
(roughly ninety of them) were converted into anti-tank
guns in 1943 and renamed the PanzerJäger Tiger P,
or Ferdinand for short. Throughout his early career,
Ferdinand proved how effective he was at pushing the
limits of technological advancement on automobiles
and military transportation.
I bring up Ferdinand’s past innovations not to connect
him to the political and social atmosphere of the
time, though future articles might as his story is fascinating,
but to reveal another first that hits home with
me, this time by his son Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree; Ferry
Porsche proves this point. In 1948 Ferry developed
Porsche’s first roadgoing sports car, and I bet you can
Porsche 356/1 Roadster
Photo courtesy of the Porsche Museum
guess what it was: the 356! But a little known fact, or
at least overlooked, is that the prototype for the 356,
dubbed the 356/1, actually possessed an engine that
was mounted behind the driver, but in front of the
rear axle. That’s right Mavs -- Porsche’s first 356 had
a mid-engine! The two-door roadster had a wheelbase
of 82.7 inches, a width of 65.4 inches, and weighed a
mere 1,290 lbs. Ferry propelled his innovation with the
air-cooled 1.1L Type 369 flat four. The spirited little
vehicle produced a humble 40 bhp and derived most
of its mechanical and suspension parts from the VW
Beetle. The public became infatuated with the iconic
body style that was designed by Erwin Komenda, and
Porsche continued to produce the vehicle, only altering
the position of the engine to behind the rear axle
to save money, and to open up space for two additional
The history and physical location of the unique
and groundbreaking 356/1, as many Mavs have seen
upfront, is housed at Porsche’s museum in Stuttgart.
One day, I will be lucky enough to see it, and bask in its
glory. Until then I have my Porsche books, my Porsche
gossip, and my Porsche projects. I told you 2017 was
going to be a phenomenal year! As always . . . wrench

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations
By Debi Gibson, 914 Passenger

o what’s a Kitzbuhel?
Read on to find out!
Well, most weekends
I’m asked that about
my newest 914 that putts along in
true 70s style. Debi is typically in
the passenger seat all bundled up,
enjoying the nostalgia of the old
radio and its vintage charm. So
this month, she asked if she could
interview the guy behind the wheel
and the author of the monthly
Kruder’s Cars and Conversations.
So here it goes -- we are putting this
month’s conversation in “reverse.”
The story as heard and narrated by
Debi Gibson . . .
Bill Kruder, owner 1971 914/4 and
1982 911SC, member since 1996
Debi Gibson: So it’s clear to most
how much you enjoy hanging with your
Porsches looking for any excuse to pick
up a box of donuts and hang with your
car and friends. When did you first realize
you had a passion for cars?
Bill Kruder: Well, my oldest sister
Sharon and husband Bill had a
‘68 Tangerine 912 when I was 17.
She used to take me out in it, and
one day she actually let me drive
it. I never forgot it! Guess it kinda
It really got me into owning
sports cars . . . Fiats to MGs to VW’s.
I had a special love though for German
DG: Fitting with the last name
Kruder! When did your first Porsche
enter the story?
BK: It wasn’t until we moved
here to Dallas in 1994 that I decided
it was time to own my dream car.
In 1995 I did months of research
on which Porsche to own and I decided
on the ’82 911SC Coupe.
DG: What’s so special about that
BK: Well the SCs are really
known to have strong engines. I really
like the color Platinum because
they aren’t as common, you don’t
see a lot out there. It was important
to me that the car I owned was all
original too, and she was. I found a
two-owner car in Hot Springs, AR,
in the Dallas Morning Newspaper
in the Classifieds. After Fed Ex pictures
went back and forth (before
iPhones of course) I purchased a
one-way ticket to Arkansas, had the
car checked out, and drove it five
DG: What did your friends and family
BK: They thought I was a little
crazy. “Why would you want such
an old car to be your daily driver?”
It just kinda fulfilled a boyhood
dream. Having just moved from
Chicago after 20 years, it was nice
to drive back and forth to work and
have it waiting for me in the garage.
DG: I know you retired from JC Penney
after nearly 40 years with the company.
So you parked it every day in their
garage? I bet you got some looks and
comments with the coupe parked there.
BK: Oh Yeah, I did! No one
could believe it and it sparked a lot
of cool conversations.
DG: So tell us about your latest find?
How did you pick your second Porsche?
BK: I always loved the 914 for its
quirkiness, and when I first started
with JC Penney there were two guys
that had them. I thought it would
be cool to own one!
DG: So how did you find “the one”?
BK: Well we started looking for
it in August of last year and found
one up in Indiana. I had an offer
drafted, but a couple things didn’t
sit right, and the owner was kinda
dragging his feet. So one Saturday
morning after Porsche Cars and
Coffee, Robert, Peter, Greg and I
(some of our local Mavericks) decided
to make a trip to a local cigar
shop and the story really began!
Hunting for the 914 over cigars
DG: Oh, trust me, I remember that
BK: Well we sat down talking and
Robert started looking on eBay.
He was flipping through the listings
and discovered this car right
here in DFW, all original, and what
sealed the deal for me was that it
had the original delivery and service
documents from Hagestad’s
Porsche Dealership in Denver!
DG: And why was that so important?
BK: If you’ll remember just
months earlier I had written my first
“Kruders Cars and Conversations”
on Bob Hagestad himself. He’s the
longest running member of PCA in
Maverick Region. I learned from
that interview that Bob and his dad
had opened up VW and Porsche
stores in Denver along with a lot of
other cool stories. We really developed
a connection from that, and
like with all my articles, the people
I meet become friends.
DG: So you bid on a car on eBay
then?! I still can’t believe it.
BK: Yes! The bidding began that
morning . . . it wasn’t until 8 hours
later that I “owned” Bob Hagestad’s
car. It was quite a day! Four guys
staring at their iPhones, cigars in
hand, like expecting fathers.
DG: So what are some of the characteristics
you love about this particular
BK: Well the fact that the car
was a special order. Of all things,
you couldn’t purchase a black
914. It had
to be special
fact is that
Bill, Bob, and the 914
the car he realized it didn’t have a
Porsche badge on the front hood.
He told Bob that unless it had the
badge he wasn’t taking possession
of the car. So Bob, as a “dealer installed
option,” complied by putting
a Porsche badge on the car for
him. The 914/4s were badgeless so
that in itself makes this one unique.
DG: So let’s get back to this Kitzbuhel
then. What is that about?
BK: Well, turns out the first
owner, when he took delivery in
November of 1970, and being from
Austria, put that tag on the car in
remembrance of his home town.
What’s really cool is that I’ve actually
spoken to him. I found through
the records his phone number and
gave him a call. He was in disbelief
that I now owned his car with the
emblem he added still intact.
DG: I know you instigate a lot of car
gatherings; barely a weekend passes by
without an outing. What prompts your
BK: Well about a year ago I got
involved in the monthly Porsche
Cars and Coffee and then realized
that most other Saturdays we all
are looking for a good excuse to
get out in our cars. So we started
“impromptu” gatherings that usually
consist of a “meet the new car”
that someone has added to their
garage, or heck, it might just be
that someone bought new tires; it
doesn’t take much with this group.
It’s typically 15 to 20 cars gathering
together just over the fact we love
our Porsches. We make new connections,
share fun facts, and just
enjoy hanging with our cars.
DG: Well I think you have a “ministry”
of sorts! Connecting people and
BK: I enjoy it! The provenance
of the car is personal . . . mine is
from Bob’s dealership, others hold
childhood nostalgia, or someone
else has a color that is rare. Ultimately
though, it’s about the person
and their personal connection
with their car. It’s true that a car is
an extension of a personality and a
history. It’s the real story.
So there you have it folks, the
story behind the man who arrives
early to put the cones out, writes
the monthly article, posts the numerous
pics on Facebook, and is
always finding an excuse to gather
friends and their cars together at
the next cool coffee spot: “Kruder,”
aka the Donut Guy.

Maverick Region 2017 Autocross (AX) Events
By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
utocross is a very fun and popular nationwide
form of motorsports that emphasizes
safe competition and active participation.
Participants, ranging from novices, significant
others, and the highly experienced, can drive their
car (multiple drivers allowed) and manage a support
role to assist in running the event. Autocross differs
from track-based events in that there is generally only
one car on a section of the course at a time, spaced well
apart from other cars, and driving against the clock at
speeds generally below 60 mph, rather than at high
speeds with other cars in close proximity, as in Drivers’
Education, or true wheel-to-wheel competition, as in
The Maverick Autocross program is a low risk way to
get started in competition driving almost any car. Our
region puts on events in collaboration with the very
well-run Equipe Rapide Sports Car Club (autocross.
com) in 2017 at sites like the Burleson ISD Stadium
lot (first event, February 26), Mesquite Memorial Stadium,
and Mineral Wells Airpark (about 40 miles west of
Fort Worth). It is an excellent way to learn car control
expertise that will improve your overall driving skill.
You will quickly learn about proper seating position,
looking ahead, threshold braking, and precise car control,
while you try to execute a perfect lap on a pylonmarked
course where you will be timed to the thousandth
of a second. There is a two-second time penalty
for every pylon knocked over, so quick, clean, and neat
driving matters. Unless
you do something very
unusual, the only risk
to your car is contact
with a rubber cone that
can be easily cleaned
have used autocross as
a steppingstone to DE
or Club Racing. Some
very fast and wellknown
road racers got
their start in autocross.
Some drivers still autocross
after moving up
to those other higherrisk
activities or move
on to National caliber
PCA Parade or SCCA
Most drivers can navigate the whole course after just
one shift to second gear. The next 60 to 80 seconds
are such a rush that some drivers barely take time to
breathe. You do this six to eight times after just walking
the unique course found at each event. The rest of the
day you will meet lots of interesting people, take a shift
running part of the event from registration, tech, or
corner station duty, and enjoy an exciting assortment
of interesting cars at speed. These are very social events
where ride-along opportunities and in-car instruction
will help you enjoy the experience.
Although there are many classes at these combined
events with Equipe Rapide, Porsche Club entrants can
run in the Small Region classes, as specified in the PCA
Parade Competition Rules (PCRs), at these events. For
2017 these include three fully showroom stock classes
for completely stock 1990 and later Porsches (including
your Cayenne, Panamera, or Macan!), four classes
for all pre-1990 and lightly modified later model cars,
and special classes for the fastest prepared or modified
Registration is available on line or on site. Arrive
about 8 am and bring a lunch or snacks with you, since
lunch breaks are not always scheduled. After tech inspection,
walk the course or do so with the formal novice
walk-through for some additional insights. Cars
start running about 10 am and awards are presented
about 4 pm. Join us for a safe and fun way to learn the
limits of your Porsche!
Golden Anniversary: Al Zim’s 50 years with Maverick Region
As told to Carey Spreen
Photos courtesy of the Author
r. Zim (you can call him
Al) was always interested
in cars. His first heartthrob
was a 1958 Volvo
PV444. Soon his parents bought
him a two-year-old Volvo. Eventually,
“work” on the Volvo was necessary. Al
was attending Wilmington College
in Ohio, and there was one sports
car shop in Wilmington, which Al
frequented for parts and advice.
He spent many days in the parking
lot “fixing” things that should have
been left alone. At the start of his
sophomore year, he convinced the
sports car shop owner to hire him.
The shop could be considered a
“hole in the wall,” but was one of the
few shops that catered to Porsches.
Although Al was enamored with Austin-Healeys,
he was often reminded
that Porsche was the only way to
travel. He soon acquired a Speedster
and an SCCA competition license
at the Nelson Ledges racetrack. He
drove it to the track, put in four
hours of racing, and drove back, all
on Blue Streak race tires.
Al and Ed circa 1976
In September he began a Masters
program at Miami University in Oxford,
Ohio. He used the Volvo as a
tow car and the Speedster as a race
car, but also had a home-built Formula
V and a 1956 Porsche-powered
VW. With no place to work on the
cars, the racing program sputtered
to a halt, and he had sold them by
Newly married, Al was accepted
into a PhD program at North Texas
State University (now UNT), and
joined Maverick Region. Al recalled
that first Maverick meeting, where
everyone present except Al (and
one other person) were wearing
sport jackets. He was asked to sit
in the back of the room. Not an
auspicious beginning, but he hung
Ed Mayo, whom Al had met at
college in 1960, was teaching high
school auto shop in Cleveland when
Al invited him to Texas to visit.
When Ed arrived in late fall, he was
amazed at the layers of clothing
that he no longer needed. He was
also amazed at Al’s rust-free 1958
Speedster. “$750.00 is what I paid
for it -- you can have it for that,” said
Al. Ed drove the Speedster back to
Cleveland, where it was 22 degrees.
Within a year Ed had moved to Texas,
joining Maverick Region in 1967.
But that’s another story . . .
Al was now an Associate Professor
at Tarrant County Junior College,
now known as Tarrant County College.
Ed worked as a mechanic at
the local Porsche dealerships. They
began to work on Porsches together
in Al’s detached garage.
At one point they heard about
a 550 Spyder (550-047) for sale for
$1500.00 in Arlington.
Al purchased the car,
and before he even
drove it, Bill Jones
bought it for $1600.00.
Turns out that it had
placed sixth at the 1955
24 Heures du Mans,
driven by Glockler and
Juhan, and Carroll
Shelby’s name was even
on the Texas title. A
program had slipped
through his fingers.
Al in his current office at
Their shade tree work continued
until 1974, when one of Al’s neighbors
complained that they were
illegally running a business from a
residence. The result was a new location
in Euless that had formerly
processed chickens, and POR-SHA
Unfortunately, Porsche AG did
not appreciate the use of such a
similar name. Federal legal action
ensued, with the judge’s statement
that if the sign was not off the building
by Monday morning, Al would
be in federal prison. To this day
neither Al nor Ed can legally use
the word POR-SHA. With a move to
Bedford in 1979, the doors opened
as “Zim and Mayo.” Later, Zims
Autotechnik signified the separation
of Ed and Al.
A meeting at Zims in 1988
resulted in the Tub Club, a 356
organization. Al recalls that, when
naming the group, there was some
concern that “Tub Club” might be
confused with a seedy Dallas location
which rented hot tubs by the hour.
Fortunately, the name prevailed
and the hot tub rentals did not. The
Tub Club has about 80 members
Al owns a 1957 356A coupe, a
1961 356B coupe, a 1985 491 widebody
Carrera coupe, a 1986 491
Cabriolet, and twin
1988 G50 Carreras, a
coupe and a cabriolet.
Al tends to keep a low
profile so we don’t get
to see him very much,
but when we do, there
is always a story.
Al, on achieving an

We are honored to be
able to count you as
one of our own.
PCA Tours – A 2017 Overview
By Tom Martin, Region PCA Tour Co-Chair
he Maverick PCA Tours program enjoys a
long, varied, and colorful history throughout
the 50+ years of the Club. The purpose
of the Tours program is to provide members
with a suitable environment to explore the limits of
their Porsche in a non-controlled environment, within
the limits of the law.
Tours were held sporadically during the early years
of the Club, but in 1971, past President Charlie Davis
created and conducted the first of many Tours to
Eureka Springs in Arkansas. Unfortunately, they were
characterized by major accidents. A couple of drivers
and cars were simply not capable. In 1980, the Tour was
made a non-official event and only drivers who could
safely drive 1100 “spirited” miles in 2.5 days were invited!
It continued as an invitation-only event until about
1985, when tourists became a major issue. By that time,
Eureka Springs had turned into a mini-Branson and
lost much of its charm, and Highway 1 in southeast
Oklahoma became polluted with RVs.
The Club continued to conduct several Tours to
the Hill Country and East Texas. Most were multi-day
events. In the ensuing years, thanks to a long line of
Tourmeisters, the PCA Tours program has evolved
into what it is today. Tours run between 60-100 miles
in length, and are completed in a few hours on a weekend.
End destinations usually incorporate a suitable
dining venue, and wine is almost always involved. Go
figure. Major accidents are a thing of the past, possibly
because of increased driver skill, but more likely due to
the advanced electronic driver aids that Porsche incorporates
into their vehicles.
For the 2017 season, we have assembled five Tours
that we hope will afford Mavericks the chance to stretch
their Porsche’s “legs” and showcase some interesting
roads and destinations. They include locales such as the
Mitas Hill Vineyard in McKinney, the Ennis Bluebonnet
Tour, Fortunata Winery in Aubrey, Lantana Lodge
in Pilot Point, and even MotorSport Ranch, where we
will be doing parade laps on their most excellent road
course. The schedule appears on the Maverick website
and also directly below.
Stay tuned to Slipstream for “PCA Tour Previews,”
and the Maverick website to receive all the latest details
and updates on the PCA Tours. Hope to see you all
sometime on a Tour!

buy another Porsche?”
asked my son. “No, I
am just looking,” I replied
offhandedly as I continued
to browse the internet ads. I understood
where he was coming from,
however. Like many of you, I have
spent hours online just to look and
to dream. Well, that dream became
reality on December 5 last year as
I took delivery of my 2011 997.2
Turbo S Cabriolet.
“One of One” is now residing in Dallas
I found her on Porsche.com.
I named her “One of One,” partially
a tribute to the “Seven of
Nine” character for you Trekkies.
She lived in Palm Beach, but was
offered for sale in Buffalo, NY. A
truly unique 911, it left Stuttgart
with both paint-to-sample Polar
Silver exterior and Lipstick Red interior.
Her previous owner wanted
to create a one-of-a-kind 911. The
extensive option package included
carbon-fiber trim and some highly
unusual leather-covered items,
such as the rearview mirror, fuse
box panel, and vent slats! Leather
vent slats sealed the deal for me. I
was sold on this beauty! She is One
One of One had extensive service
records from the dealership.
All major and minor maintenance
had been completed. To be 100%
certain, I scheduled an independent
PPI (pre-purchase inspection).
After all, I was about to make
this major purchase sight-unseen.
Niagara Region PCA members
were eager to help. They recommended
the PPI shop as well as offered
to conduct a visual inspection
in my absence. PPI did uncover a
small coolant leak and some minor
cosmetic flaws that I used in my
negotiation. The DME report was
clean with no over-rev history. To
transport One of One
back home to Dallas, I
relied on fellow Mavs.
A quick Facebook post

days. It was delivered
without incident in an
As expected, to reach
my dream, sacrifices had
to be made. In this case, it
was my beloved Cayman,

like kbb.com and autotrader.
com, to determine my sales price.
I posted it on the Mav Facebook
page, PCA classifieds, and Craigslist.
With detailed descriptions
and great pictures, it was sold in six
days. Frankly, I was not ready for it.
So sudden, I didn’t have a chance
to say goodbye.
Unique interior options
It has been a month and 800
miles since One of One arrived in
Dallas. It has been a blast to show
her off to family and friends. She
is everything I thought a Turbo
would be and more. It’s a car with
split personalities. It’s a great daily
driver with ride comfort and modern
conveniences. However, with
the Sport Plus mode engaged and a
bit more right foot pressure, a beast
emerges from under the sheepskin.
I can’t help it but to grin ear to ear.
This was a dream fulfilled. Spring
driving season will be upon us soon.
See you out there, Mavs!
Top down no matter how cold!
Expand your dream car search:
Porsche.com pre-owned section is an
excellent place to begin your search for
newer (993, 996, 997, 991) Porsches.
The powerful Car Locator tool gives
you access to Porsche inventory from
U.S. dealerships. Other great sites are
Autotrader.com, eBay, and our own
mav.pca.org and Slipstream classifieds,
along with pca.org classifieds!
Surprisingly, Craigslist is a good
place to sell your P-cars. The posts are
picked up by many third-party websites
and reposted. Your ad there will reach
a national audience. Be sure to take
detailed, close-up photos of your interior,
especially the buttons, seats, and wheels.
Lastly, PCA is full of helpful and
knowledgeable folks. It’s a great resource
to keep in mind. Dream on, Mavs!

Santa Boots: Maverick Region’s Work with the Boot Campaign
By Boot Campaign Staff
Photo courtesy of the Boot Campaign
or more than half a
century the Maverick
Region of the Porsche
Club of America has
been driving friendships and
spreading good will to the Dallas/
Fort Worth Metroplex. During the
2016 holiday season that effort was
expanded to 60 new families when
the Maverick’s joined military nonprofit
Boot Campaign as a sponsor
in its heralded Santa Boots outreach
Providing Christmas gifts is often
a challenge for service families
with financial difficulties, and Boot
Campaign developed the Santa
Boots program to join with other
patriots to relieve some of that holiday
stress while showing continued
support from our grateful nation.
Each year, veteran and active
duty families are nominated by the
Boot Campaign network to receive
Santa Boots gift packages. Items
are wrapped and tagged by Boot
Campaign Elves, noting the gifts’
donors on the tag, and placed in
personalized family boxes with a
heartfelt note of gratitude from
Boot Campaign. There are 20 to
30 amazing gifts per family box, including
multiple WOW-type gifts to
add to the excitement, and they are
Boot Campaign family box
delivered as a SURPRISE just days
Santa Boots gifts are collected
from patriotic families, businesses
and organization from across the
country, like PCA’s Maverick Region,
which generously sponsored
funds to purchase special Cinemark
Movie bundles to bless 60 recipient
The Mavericks’ donation was
customized to each box based on
family size, so the entire family
could have a free night out at the
movies that included food concessions
for each family member.
“The Maverick Region of PCA
was excited about the opportunity
to play a role in financially supporting
the Boot Campaign’s Santa
Boots program during Christmas
2016,” reflects Richard Solomon,
the Region Treasurer. “Many of our
members are veterans, so we were
especially proud of what this program
did to touch the lives of our
Boot Campaign’s annual Santa
Boots outreach campaign was developed
in 2015 by the five founding
“Boot Girls” of Boot Campaign
as a holiday program that the military
non-profit charity’s volunteers
and sponsors could get actively involved
“Santa Boots is such a terrific way
of connecting civilian Americans
to the brave men and women who
served, and is our small way of making
sure they feel appreciated for
their service and sacrifice at a time
of year when many feel stretched
financially,” says Sherri Reuland,
Boot Campaign Board Member
and one of the Boot Campaign’s
five founding Boot Girls.
“We are so thankful to have
dedicated and generous program
partners like Maverick Region, who
have taken a leap of faith with us
in Santa Boots to spread holiday
cheer to those deserving families in
the Dallas-Ft. Worth area,” adds Reuland.
“The Santa Boots program
does as much for the heart of those
who participate in preparing these
family gift boxes as it does for those
who receive them.”
Big smiles not only come to the
recipients but also to Boot Campaign
Elves, who wrap and customize
the family gift boxes based on
a family profile with “just the right
touch.” The Elves then deliver the
“surprise” personally to Santa Boots
families for a hard-to-match experience
of the season.
“Santa Boots is about more than
Christmas gifts or patriotism to
me,” says Pamela Hughes, a Boot
Campaign Elf. “Santa Boots lets
me bring love and hope to families
during a time that may be difficult.
When they receive a box, you can
see that it’s like they are overwhelmed
with a sense of hope and
knowing that people care more
than they knew.”
Adds Sgt. First Class Nurse (Ret.)
Cassandra Cantin, U.S. Army, a
Boot Campaign Hero Ambassador
and Elf: “This experience has truly
changed my life as well as the lives of
so many veterans and their families.
It’s one thing to hear someone say
‘thank you for your service,’ but it’s
a whole different ball game when
someone says it and then shows
up with this big box of thanks. It
shows that not only do you matter
for showing what you are willing to
sacrifice, but your family matters
and we are thinking about you all.”
“We are thrilled and honored to
have the Boot Campaign as one of
only two charities we support
through our club activities,” concludes
Solomon. “We look forward
to future events we can partner
with the Boot Campaign to support
our military veterans and active
duty service men and women.”
2016 Maverick Region Financial Statement

of Porsche Club of

MAVERICK REGION PCA
for transparency to Cash our Basis members
January through December 2016
of all club activities. It is important
to all of us on this Board to be
good stewards of what we are given
to further expand our club, but to
also further the brand of Porsche
Club of America and Porsche.
2016 results reflected a net
cost to the club of $9,755, which
is a decline as compared to 2015.
This is attributable to higher track
expenses related to our Driver
Education programs and planned
excess costs towards club-wide
events. Also, the timing for receipt
of certain sponsorships and advertising
income contributed to this
position. Lastly, we are proud to
mention that through the generosity
of our club members and by decision
of the Board, we were able
to provide direct financial support
to two region charities totaling
$18,095. So, Thank You!
In conclusion, despite these results,
the club remains on strong
financial footing to meet the needs
of its members and the charities
we support. We will continue to
work to improve your club experience
while maintaining the integrity
of our financial charge.

Service & Maintenance
Around the Bend...
By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor
riving Friendships! By the time you’re reading
this, I hope you’ve been able to keep at
least one of your 2017 New Year resolutions!
The one I’m most interested in is driving
your Porsche as often as possible and participating in
at least one new Maverick Region driving event this
year to meet your fellow club members.
The club’s tagline, “Driving Friendships”, is a
mindset that I hope all Maverick
members can embrace in
becoming an active club
participant of the Maverick
Region. You’ve got a sports car
for all seasons at your disposal
and lots of potential new
friendships with members of
our club, so putting that tagline
into action should be of high
interest to each of you.
Going a bit further with my ongoing reminders for
our members to drive our German engineering marvels
as frequently as possible, perhaps author Dwight
Knowlton and his mantra of “Carpe Viam” is one you
should adopt for 2017. The literal translation of that is
“Seize the Road”. Now that is a proper call to action
for all of our Maverick Region Porsche owners!
For all of our members who may need some help in
determining how best to “seize the road”, look no further
than the contents of this issue. In fact, the cover
photo this month highlights how many of our driving
events have a very visible starting point. Begin with the
club calendar on page 1. You’ll find a complete
listing of all club events for the next four
months here. Of course, also check the online
calendar on our web site at mav.pca.org for
any last minute schedule changes.
Next, check page 10. You’ll find information on
the PCA Spring Treffen held in our own Hill Country,
Fiesta New Mexico held in our neighboring Roadrunner
Region, and the schedule of our monthly Maverick
lunches. These are great driving opportunities to meet
many like-minded Porsche owners.
On page 14, our first Drivers’ Education event at
MSR is highlighted. Participate on the track or come
out and spectate - all members are welcome! Page 17
provides our season Autocross overview and schedule -
the most fun you can have in 60 seconds!
Information on our PCA Tour events, which feature
tremendous roads and great destinations, is found on
page 19. The upcoming Club Race/Solo DE at COTA
is highlighted on page 28. You can even find info on
PCA license plates for your Porsche on page 14.
Finally, our club event chairs are member volunteers
devoted to ensuring that you enjoy your Porsche to the
ultimate degree possible. Please review page 4 to get to
know these important volunteers and say “thank you”
the next time you see them in appreciation for their
efforts on all of our behalf. In particular, Bob Kramer
is one of our two new Safety Co-Chairs and has already
begun helping new DE participants get tech inspections
Bob shared that Doghouse Performance is a new
vendor located on site at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson.
They have let Bob know that they will provide tech
inspections free of charge to Maverick DE participants.
You can contact them at 817-396-4211. Of course, your
local Porsche dealers and independent Porsche repair
shops also offer this service for you.
Even more event info will be found in the
upcoming March Slipstream. Now, stop reading
and Carpe Viam every day in your Porsche!
