Sprockets: Porsches Loved and Lost
By David Robertson, Region President
e recently held our 26th May at Mayo’s
event. I was unaware that this event was
such a long-held tradition with the Maverick
Region until Ed Mayo told me the story
of its humble beginnings with an impromptu gathering
in his shop with some unused rental tables and chairs
from another member’s employee party that weren’t
due back until after the weekend. Eventually one year
the rental tables and chairs were no longer available
but by then the party had become a tradition. The tradition
that was started in May of 1991 continues to this
day. Somewhere along the way a concours was added
and now May at Mayo’s is one of our most popular
events. We just have many more tables and chairs for
I always enjoy the conversations when we all get
together, and at this year’s May at Mayo’s, it seemed
that many people were lamenting over Porsches they
had owned at various points in history that, in hindsight,
should never have been let go. I imagine that
the collection of classic Porsches on display stoked the
memories of those that were no longer owners of such
cars. Tennyson said it is better to have loved and lost
than to not have loved at all. I am not sure if this holds
true when that sweet air-cooled 911 you traded in for a
minivan all those years ago has gone up in value 500 or
600 percent along with its coolness factor. For me that
would be just a little hard to swallow. There were also
a couple of stories about cars that were taken without
permission and never seen again. This is a scenario that
would be especially heartbreaking. One individual I
was speaking with had the interior door panel removed
for some work when his Porsche was borrowed, never
to return. That cherished door panel has occupied a
prominent place in his home since that day.
Until now, I have never owned a car that I might
possibly regret not owning someday in the future. I can
only imagine what it would be
Did you know
that we have
like to have possessed a special
car many years ago with the realization
for all the years since
that you should have never
parted ways. Is it really better to
have loved and lost? I am sure
there are plenty of you that
could weigh in on that discussion
with me at our next event.
Did you know that we have
a trivia contest? Fabulous prizes
and your claim to know more
about Porsches than anyone

Gimme a Minute: May Board Meeting Minutes
By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary May 3, 2017
resident David Robertson
began the meeting at 7:04
pm. He announced we
would be moving forward
with printing Slipstream in full color
starting in September. He mentioned
that the Austin Schnellfest at Drivers’
Ed event at COTA is coming along.
Blue and Green groups are full with
a waiting list and White and Yellow
groups are still open. We will try to
encourage registration. Bill Orr has a
license plate prototype that he will be
moving forward with. Reporting for
Social Chair Tracy Robertson, May at
Mayo’s (M@M) has 98 RSVPs already
and needs more from board members.
DE Chair Chris Tabor reported
that we had a good weekend of driving
in April without the forecasted
rain. The event financials should be
in the black. He has received requests
to add another event in the spring
next year, which he will consider. He
mentioned that corner workers are
getting harder to recruit and he’ll be
finalizing details for a Work/Drive
program and other incentives, as well.
Several other suggestions were made
around the room to consider.
Safety Chair Bob Kramer was
pleased with the results of the “refresher”
document sent to DE drivers
prior to this event. It reminded all
about car number requirements, particularly
2-driver cars. There was one
on-track blown motor incident that
had some complications. He will work
to improve these issues to make future
Slipstream Editor Jim Hirsch clarified
that we will not have a board meeting
in July. Reporting for Membership
Chair John Hamilton, we have 37 new
members for the month (lost ~29).
For the first five months, we’ve had
135 new members join, reiterating his
point for keeping event information
fresh and available. He worked hard
to put together the 20 Years of the
Boxster display at M@M, securing 13
of the 15 models produced!
Tour Chair Bill Orr showed the
license plate prototype and is ready
for the next step. TXDOT is taking
a public survey about the design and
will officially vote in June. We need
200 prepaid orders to go into production
and we have over 400 people
who expressed an interest. He is also
working on license plate frames with
Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh. He
also showed alternative name badge
options for members with the new
logo. He reported that the Movie
Night will be May 19 and is looking
for people to sign up. He purchased a
bunch of Hot Wheel Porsches to give
to kids at events to encourage them
Advertising Chair Bill Kruder has
the new ad rate structure to go with
full color printing. He will be highlighting
the benefits for advertisers
with bullet points. He is also offering
quarterly payment plans as an option,
as well as PayPal (and maybe autopayment).
He reported that PCA had
about 30 cars show up at the British
and European Car show.
Volunteer Jim Gallegos has 5-7
“cone heads” to help with parking
and set up for M@M.
Phyllis Gallegos is working with
Tracy Robertson for M@M and has
catering all set up from Desperados.
Monthly Social Chair Stephanie
Ho said the event at Hard 8 BBQ was
very well attended. The crowds kept
some attendees from eating, as they
didn’t know they could order from
the dining room rather than stand
in the long line. The May event will
be the Drive-In Movie. She is looking
for a location for June that would be
indoors, expecting hot temperatures.
Vice President Jim Falgout suggested
that we once again should try
to host a Street Survival course, like
the BMW club has.
Content Editor Carey Spreen has
been researching options for hosting
an off-road event for SUV owners.He
is working with Jeff Sebert, who has
come up with a location in Bridgeport.
They are looking at September.
Concours Chair Andy Kay has
everything set for the car show at
M@M. He has 100 placards and
ballots and has his timeline finalized.
Rally Chair Don Sebert reported
he had a successful Rally with about
27 cars starting and 24 finishing. The
event ended at a German restaurant
in Muenster and everyone had a good
time. He will send out complete results
Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh
is working on license plate frames
and has samples coming from local
vendors, which he will display. He is
ordering more logo window stickers,
as he found a cheaper source. He also
has three new merchandise items on
the PCA website that are some lower
priced hats and polos to offer as an
Tour Co-Chair Mark Pitarresi mentioned
he wanted to get shirts for tour
group leaders or organizers. Cost per
is $35 or $45 (with Porsche logo on
back). Discussion ensued. David Robertson
made a motion to approve six
polo style shirts for event organizers
(two Tours, two Rally, and two Concours)
that the region would pay for.
The motion was seconded by Karl
Poulsen and approved unanimously.
Others will be able to purchase similar
Tech Session Chair Nikolaus
Klemmer passed out business cards he
had printed for those who requested
them. He is having difficulties finding
a location for a tech session. He’s
been collaborating with the Lone
Star Region Tech Session chair who is
having similar issues. Several location
ideas were discussed.
Webmaster James Shoffit said our
web hosting is up for renewal at the
end of the month. The cost is $400 for
three years and is looking for a better
alternative that is also cheaper.
David Robertson announced that
Rose Gohlke was Maverick of the
Month for her great hospitality work
at the Drivers’ Education events.
Treasurer Richard Solomon
reports we have roughly $135K
including the April DE and expenses
paid for COTA Club Race. Sponsorship
money for DE and Drive In Movie
Nigh is still due.
The meeting adjourned at 8:40.
PCA Tour Recap: The Bluebonnet Tour
By Mark Pitarresi, PCA Tours Co-Chair
ur second tour for 2017 kicked off Saturday
morning April 15. This was Bill Orr’s
and my first tour since Tom Martin handed
the reins to us. It turned out to be perfect
weather, with temperatures in the high 70s and just a
few white fluffy clouds. Great for top-down/sunroofopen
driving! We had 73 Porsches that carried 126
people on this Bluebonnet Tour.
our tour in
an old Bank
By the time
Drivers’ briefing at the start of the Tour
lot was completely
full, with a wide range of Porsche models. Our
tour traveled 86.2 miles through the cities of Ferris,
Palmer, Crisp, Chatfield, Rice, Alma, and Ennis. Ennis
is one of the more popular places to view the Bluebonnets
in Texas. It has been said that they have over
100,000 visitors that come to see their famous bluebonnet
trails in the spring. Ennis even has a Bluebonnet
Festival to celebrate Texas’ state flower.
This year spring came early and so did the bluebonnets.
Even though we were a few weeks late for the
prime blooming, they were still out waiting for us to
complete the tour. It was the perfect setting for country
scenery and spirited driving with our great members!
The tour ended at Bubba’s BBQ and Steakhouse, which
has been a staple in Ennis for over 25 years. They are famous
for great food, and after a spirited drive through
the countryside it was a good ending to the tour.
PCA’s guidelines for the Tours program have
changed a little. Our Drive Leaders are now called
Group Leaders. If you have been on a tour this year,
you probably also noticed we
started using wrist bands to
indicate that you have signed
the insurance waiver. We will
also have a Sweep dedicated
to each group. The Sweep is
the driver of the car at the end
of the group, and is responsible
for notifying the Group
Leader about cars in trouble,
unsafe driving, or for occasions
where cars get separated
from the group.
Group Leaders ready!
Sometimes it can be difficult to get the number of
volunteers we need for the Tours. If you would like volunteer
as a Group Leader please email us at tours@
mavpca.org. H.P.D.E. Experience is preferred but not
I have lived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for over
25 years (with the last two years in the PCA) and had
no idea that within just a short drive we have so many
great roads to exercise our Porsches’ abilities. Maverick
Tours are a great way to get
out and explore North Texas!
A special thank you to all
the Group Leaders! We had a
total of six, including Tom
Martin, Karl Poulsen, Peter
Wen, Jason Bouque, Bill Orr,
and myself. The Tour program
cannot exist without
our Group Leaders. They did
a great job making sure that
our tour was safe, spirited,

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations
By Bill Kruder, Region Advertising Chair
Photos courtesy of the Author
hen I first heard of this
guy Voy it was right
here in Slipstream when
he wrote a two-part
article entitled “First Porsche.” Voy
“Mitch” Mitchell and I then had a
close encounter about a year ago at
a Porsche Cars & Coffee on a cold
blustery day in Addison as he drove
by the rest of us standing in the
drizzle. Since then Mitch has come
out with us several times for coffee
and a chat. Then some time went by
without us seeing him as he battled
cancer. I would hear some updates
on him and then he and Marie
attended Mavs & Mocha recently
at Zims. As what often happens,
someone said (this time it was Jim
Hirsch), “you know, we really need
to find out how this guy seems to
get a different Porsche every few
So here is the next in my series
of “conversations” I would like to
share with you…
Voy “Mitch” and Marie (MA-ree)
Mitchell, owner of a 2015 911
Turbo S , founding member
of PCA West Germany Region
in 1963 (disbanded in 2004)
Bill Kruder: Ok, I have to ask: where
is the name Voy from? Sounds like it’s of
Mitch: Oh no. I don’t think my
mom had any idea of where the
name might have originated, but
in those days everyone had two
names, and I guess she liked Voy
Jerome, so that’s what I was called.
BK: Can’t say I ever met a Voy before.
Mitch: Well I hadn’t either until
I went into the service and met
another; he was an officer so we
didn’t really speak, but about five
or six years ago I was able to look
him up and we finally spoke.
BK: So what branch of the military
were you in? Did you stay in long?
Mitch: I was in the Air Force for
20-plus years and retired as a Master
Sergeant in 1978.
BK: After you retired what did you
Mitch: I got a job with H-E-B in
the meat processing plant, on what
we would call today the IT side of
BK: So you were kind of an IT guy
in the Air Force?
Mitch: No, I just kind of said I
could do it and learned. We used
a new system developed by Digital
Equipment Corporation (DEC),
who at that time was a leader in what
was then called “Mini-Computers.”
Taking courses through the GI Bill
helped fill in the areas I couldn’t
learn on my own.
BK: And are you from here?
Mitch: No, I grew up in a small
oil patch town called Eldorado,
Texas about 45 miles south of San
Angelo. Our last assignment found
us in San Antonio and we lived
there for about 28 years. In 2004
moved to Celina.
BK: So I understand you two just
celebrated a milestone?
Marie: Yes we did! In December
we had our 50th wedding anniversary.
Fifty years of marriage looks
pretty good on these kids
BK: Where did you two meet? With
your accent you are not from “these
Marie: I’m from Ireland, but as it
turned out, I was going to nursing
school near London, and Mitch
was stationed near London.
Mitch: I was stationed at Chicksands,
about 50 miles north of
London. A friend I knew from assignment
in Germany threw a party
so that I could meet some girls and
Marie was there. This was February
of 1966, and we married in December
BK: Wow! That must have been a
Marie: I guess you could say
that; we both worked crazy shifts
too. When I was working nights,
Mitch would be working days and
vice versa, so we hardly saw each
Mitch: I think we probably spent
the equivalent of two weeks together
in all that time from meeting to
BK: Ok so let’s talk cars. How did
you get interested in Porsches?
Mitch: Well I was stationed in
Siegelbach, West Germany in about
1962 and a good friend had a ’62
or ‘63 356 1600 Super cabriolet. Together
we would hit all the Grand
Prix tracks and I guess that just
BK: And what was your first then?
Mitch: Well before I bought my
first Porsche, in 1963 I bought a VW
1200 Beetle, and drove it for about
six months. I sold it and saved up so
I could buy a 356.
BK: How did that work out?
Mitch: Good. I saved enough
money and put down $200 on a
1964 Signal Red 356C coupe. As
I recall, I think they stickered at
about $3600, which was a huge sum
for a 22-year-old Staff Sergeant, but
heck, I was single. So in October
1963, I took the train to the factory
in Stuttgart to take delivery of my
new coupe. After a tour of the factory
I was off on my journey.
BK: How long did you have it?
Mitch: Well I had it for about
two years, driving it all over West
Germany, and shipped it back to
the states, I sold it in 1965 I believe.
BK: I understand you tracked the
car down in later years?
Mitch: I did. That car represented
a special time and to this
day I’ve always admired the 356. It
changed hands several times over
the years and even spent time in
San Antonio; currently it’s in Long
BK: And what was next?
Mitch: Well, we had a pretty big
gap between our first and second
Porsche. It wasn’t until 2014 that
we bought our second and that was
a 2007 Carrara White on Black Boxster.
We took that out on several
Sunday Drives (now Tours). After
driving it several months something
with the engine just wasn’t right.
We had Al Zim check it out and decided
before we put any money in it
we would get rid of it.
Marie: This is where it gets interesting
BK: And how’s that?
Mitch: One day I traded it in at
Park Place for a 2015 Carrara White
Metallic on Black Boxster.
Marie: He leaves in one and
comes back in another; it’s white
and black looked nearly the same
to me (laughing again)!
Mitch: The 2015 was fun but just
not fast enough for what I wanted
as we took more drives . . . there was
a “need for speed” happening. So
one day I traded it for a 2014 Carrera
S, Pure White on Black again.
Marie: I’ve gotten pretty used to
having a white and black Porsche in
BK: But this isn’t what you are driving
Mitch: No, I was on a drive and
the guys kidded me that there was a
Turbo S in Austin available, knowing
that I had a “need for speed.”
So last November I picked up the
Pure White on Espresso Turbo S
down in Austin.
Marie: Now this one I noticed
(laughing). It has such a lovely interior
color and matching top.
BK: And Marie, all the time you
were really ok with all these cars coming
Marie: Oh yes! Mitch has always
been such a good provider, husband,
and father -- he deserves this
And once again to think that after
a few chance meetings I would
uncover yet another great personal
story of a guy, his girl of 50-plus
years, and a handful of “white” cars.
And always remember we are “driving

The Lost Easter Egg Rally: A First-Timer’s Perspective
By Beckie Gomer
Photos by George Luxbacher and Bill Orr
om and I have been
PCA Mav members for
almost four years. We
have participated in
Saturday and Sunday drives that
took us touring the bluebonnets,
the country roads of Granbury,
and some wonderful stops at North
Texas wineries. We have enjoyed
several cups of coffee with friends
all over the Metroplex. We have
attended luncheons and happy
hours. We have even driven the
Texas Hill Country with 100 other
Porsches, twice! So why have we
not ever participated in a Maverick
Region rally? I had no real answer
to that question. When the notice
came out to register for the Second
Annual Easter Rally to Muenster, I
made the executive decision that
the Gomers would participate.
On Saturday, April 22, we
headed out to meet the group at the
Exxon parking lot in Corral City.
The weather called for no more
storms or rain with much cooler
temperatures for Texas springtime.
The sky was overcast at 7:45 am
but I was hopeful for sunshine by
departure time. We arrived at the
parking lot around 9:00 am with
several cars already ahead of us. I
have some idea of who attends the
drives, the Mavs & Mochas, and
the lunches. The rally group was
a mystery to me. Who would be
there? Would I know anyone? How
difficult would the questions be
for the rally? Would we be able to
The starting point in Corral City
manage the instructions and answer
the questions? Would our marriage
survive the fact there would be an
official navigator and driver? These
were all questions in my mind when
we drove up. Being that this was
our very first gimmick rally, I was
excited to learn about this process.
I knew that the gimmick portion
meant it was not a timed event, and
more of a fun event. Sort of like a
scavenger hunt for Porsches.
Rallymeister Don Sebert providing
instructions to the rally participants
There were about 27 cars which
meant about 54 people. Wendy
Shoffit had her bunny ears on and
was the only person “dressed” up
for the rally. Or so she thought. Little
did she know, the Gomers had
Mad Hatter hats with bunny ears
attached to their fronts. We were
prepared; we just couldn’t drive
with the hats on and the top up!
We all signed in, we listened to
the instructions, and the navigators
got the rally book. The book consisted
of the questions, the numbered
instructions for the route,
and a bunch of pictures to look for
on the route. I had read the general
instructions from home, yet I
was still unsure of what to expect
with the numbered instructions,
which was essentially our map.
GPS, Google, and other electronic
help was off limits during the rally,
which meant we had to rely on
these instructions entirely.
The first numbered instruction
began segment one, which included
five questions that we had to answer
along the route. For example, one
question was “If you were to “B” the
Judge, this is where you might live!”
The answer was somewhere along
the route on a sign, partial sign, or
somewhere visible. I finally saw it
halfway through the segment as a
road sign, “B Judge Lane.” We saw
two of the eight pictures in this segment
as well. We missed one question
entirely and just did not see
the answer. However, we were told,
when we got to the next segment,
to move on to the other questions.
There were nine segments in all,
with about two to five questions in
each segment. There were eight
pictures total along the route and
we had to identify which pictures
belonged in which segment. One
of the pictures was a large, metal
rooster next to a fence. We couldn’t
miss that one!
The numbered instructions
were actually very easy to follow,
making the need for our ever-ready
GPS not necessary. Tom was listening
to my navigation and directions
without any comment, which was a
miracle. On the route, we saw just
a few other Porsches which made
the drive more like one of our own
Sunday drives than a Porsche Maverick
event. Again, we were used
to the spirited drives with 10 – 16
The Gomers sporting the Mad Hatter
look with bunny ears
Porsches together. Even though we
were competing, my anxiety and
stress levels were low, allowing me
to enjoy the scenery while looking
for answers to the questions. We
saw parts of North Texas we had
never driven, pretty green fields,
Texas wildflowers, and many herds
of cattle. In fact, one of the questions
on the route had us choosing
which ranch was NOT seen during
the segment. That one was a trick
question because they were all seen
on the route, just the spelling was
different to throw us off.
We finished the rally in about
two hours which was what our Rallymeisters
had suggested as the estimated
time. The finish line was at
Rohmer’s Restaurant in Muenster.
Our ending mileage said we drove
74.6 miles but it didn’t seem like it
at all. Tom and I had so much fun
on the route -- it felt like the time
flew by. We were able to use our two
type-A personalities to focus on answering
the questions, look for objects
in the pictures, and follow the
numbered instructions. After we
ate our schnitzel plates, the award
ceremony began with winners in
the first, second, and third places,
as well as DLBF (dead last but finished).
We were shocked and excited
to hear that we won second
place! As first timers! And we won
the best costume as well with our
Mad Hatter hats!
In the end, we loved participating
in our first gimmick rally. Our
marriage survived, we got second
place, we saw beautiful parts of
Texas we had not seen before, and
we met new friends in the Club.
The only question remaining, when
is the next one?

May at Mayo’s: Multiple Perspectives
By Carey Spreen, Debi Gibson, and Bill Kruder
Photos as noted
I have been attending May at Mayo’s
since at least 2001 (see the July 2001
Slipstream online for the incriminating
evidence), and I have to say that
the 2017 edition was a standout! The weather
for the first weekend in May can be really hot,
really wet, really windy, or some combination
thereof, but the weather this time was just about
perfect. Add to that a significant turnout of just
about every flavor of Boxster that Porsche has
produced, an enthusiastic crowd, and great
Mexican food . . . well, I’ll just say that it’ll be
tough to top this one. Thanks to Tracy Robertson
and her team for organizing the dinner, to
Concours Chair Andy Kay, to Jim Gallegos and
his merry band of volunteer “coneheads,” and
to the Mayo Performance crew for hosting the
whole thing again for the umpteenth time!
20 Years of the Boxster was celebrated with a featured display area

This year was my first
time “behind the scenes”
at May at Mayo. What
and effort . . . from the 2 Margarita
machines, to the 130 beers, to the
countless waters and full plates of
Desperado’s delicious Tex-Mex,
nothing happened by accident, but
rather by the faithful effort of our
Mav’s Social Chair Tracy Robertson!
Andy Kay brought the gold too --
that’s medals of course, for Best in
Class -- and managed the ballots for
concours voting and awards. And
did I mention parking? Well-thoughtout
concours staging showcased 20
years of Boxsters and grouped
Porsches to show off the best of what
the brand offers. What would we do
without our faithful volunteers, Phyllis
and Jimmy Gallegos, Bill Kruder,
Bill Orr, Jim Hirsch, Michael Baynton,
Mike O’Hare, Mike Barnett,
Peter Wen, and Robert Kendrick?

more? Get behind the scenes, serve,
and you and your Porsche will have
the ride of your life! I know I did!

This only being my
second May at
Mayo’s and kind of
a newbie here,
though I have been a customer
on and off for years, this is always
one of the most anticipated
events of the year. What amazes
me is the variety of cars that
show up. This year it seems we
had more water cooled than air
cooled. This might be due to
the “showcasing” of the select
group of Boxsters. Think my favorite
group of cars was the 914s
that ranged from a pristine show
car to a daily driver to a track
car. Also what was really nice this
year was the organization of the
cars which made it great for
comparing models and years.
And did I mention the people? I
think again this is the most diverse
group of members to attend
that we don’t see on a regular

AKA ABCDE: All British & European Car Day
By Michael Baynton
Photos by Andrew Barber
t would take a lot more than a weekend of
inclement weather to deter nearly 30 members
of the Maverick Region, Porsche Club
of America from the 33rd annual All British
& European Car Day in Dallas. The event, held April 30
at White Rock Lake Park, included an official count of
240 vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, three-wheelers,
and other eclectic automobilia.
The stormy weather Saturday
brought cool brisk
winds, downed trees, and
a quick change of parking
location on event day.
Despite these unforeseen
changes, PCA members
kicked off the day early
Sunday morning with the
now customary pre-meet
at Starbucks in Casa Linda
Plaza to load up on caffeine
and a nice selection
of donuts and kolaches.
For participants, the chilly temps meant adding an extra
layer of clothing after fueling up (the drivers, not
the cars) for the short drive to the east side of the lake.
Several PCA members have entered as individual
contestants in past years, and Porsches have even won
awards (Hello, Jack Griffin!). However, this year marked
the first time PCA members from the Maverick region
registered as an official group. This meant a passel of
flavor to the
wide range of
the shores of

While the car show welcomed all years of participating
models, only cars at least 25 years old were eligible
for judged awards. More specifically, based on quick
“Porsche math,” the requirement eliminated all watercooled
Porsches in attendance (minus one Porsche
928) and shone the spotlight squarely on the small
but proud air-cooled contingent. When the votes were
tallied, Rob Wallace’s perfectly-presented 1973 Porsche
914S took top honors in the vehicle class. Runner-up
went to Bill Kruder’s honest and unmolested 1964
Porsche 356C, while the 1974 Porsche 911 owned by

and the paved parking was full. The “crew” quickly diverted
cars to the “grassy knoll” with the first row about
8:45 am, followed by the second, the third, and yes, the
fourth row of cars. Speaking of
cars, I think we had every model
covered, from a barn find 1965

Historicizing Porsche: The Russian Connection
By Ash Seidl-Staley
Photo courtesy of the Author
ne can hardly turn on the news, regardless
of the partisan outlet, without seeing Russia
boldly displayed in the headline, or, at
the very least, shimmying across the banner
at the bottom of the television screen. Lt. General
Michael Flynn’s resignation as President Trump’s National
Security Advisor and his subsequent plea for immunity,
as well as updates on the mountain of evidence
stacking against Russian President Vladimir Putin take
center stage of this coverage. It’s crazy to think about,
but this pattern of attention, conflict, and speculation
is cyclical. It has been occurring for decades. I’m not
sure how many people actually remember, but the Cold
War, the political witch hunts/trials based on radical
McCarthyism, and Reagan’s surprising admiration for
Gorbachev steered us through most of the twentieth
In the 1990s, headlines really switched gears when
they started describing a broke and socially conflicted
Russia. Having just risen out of the ashes of the Soviet
Union, Russia was forced to lean on the U.S. and the
International Monetary Fund (IMF) for economic,
social, and even political support. But this never garnered
mutually beneficial relationships. Russia always
distrusted the West, and the West always doubted Russian
sincerity. No matter which side of the political
spectrum you find yourself on, you can at least agree
that Russia is important, that Russia is here to stay, and
that both the U.S. and Russia will continue to meddle
in each other’s’ affairs for decades to come.
Russia’s international meddling stretches far back
into history, but for our intents and purposes we
should really just start in the 1930s. In his autobiography
entitled We at Porsche: The Autobiography of Dr. Ing.
h.c. Ferry Porsche, Ferry Porsche, the son of Ferdinand
Porsche, describes when Joseph Stalin came knocking
on his father’s office door in Stuttgart. In 1932, Stalin
sent a delegation with hopes of wooing Porsche into
adding his expertise to the goals and aspirations of the
Soviet Union. “At first we though the invitation was so
improbable that we had trouble taking [the encounter]
seriously,” noted Ferry. After breaking the ice with an
impromptu visit, Stalin then offered Ferdinand Porsche
an invitation to go on a tour of the Soviet Union.
Porsche accepted the offer and was subsequently
conducted around Russia, stopping mostly to admire
and view Soviet aircraft and automobile factories. Once
Porsche had a general idea about how Stalin’s automobile
and military vehicle industry operated, Stalin
offered Porsche a prestigious position as his Chief Construction
Director, a station that would basically make
Porsche the director of the research and development
arm of the Soviet auto industry. The job included a
hefty sum of money, a villa in the mountains, and even
the ability to transfer all of his Stuttgart staff to a new
Soviet located workshop.
Ultimately, Ferdinand decided to distance himself
from Stalin. Many historians and Porsche fanatics believe
that Ferdinand declined because the European
Grand Prix did not race in the Soviet Union. Ferdinand
loved to race his cars, especially against rival European
car manufacturers, so moving to a place where that was
not possible was simply just not an option. Ferdinand’s
son Ferry describes
his father’s choice,
likewise, in simplistic
terms. “After much
the Soviet courtship
because he felt that
learning the Russian
language would have
been far too difficult.
Running a nation’s
Ferdinand Porsche with son Ferry
automobile industry was a hard enough task; Porsche
could not imagine running the foreign industry when
he could not even communicate with his subordinates
Ferdinand’s decision to snub the Soviets demarcates
one heck of a “what if” scenario in the historical timeline
of the Porsche, Volkswagen, and Audi automobile
brands. Had Porsche said yes to Stalin, would a derivative
of the iconic Volkswagen have been produced in
Russia? Would a Russian made car have launched Ferdinand
and his successors to the top of the global market
for exotic race cars? Or, would the Russian collaboration
have been a flop, and the Porsche name forgotten
by the year 1960? That’s the fun of causational what ifs:
we just don’t know. What we do know, thankfully, is that
two years after the Soviet invitation, Porsche opened a
contract with Reichsverband der Automobilindustrie, initiating
the production of what has come to be known as
Hitler’s “people’s car.”

Maverick Region Social Media: Our Online Presence
By James Shoffit, Region Webmaster
averick Region PCA (many thanks to the
tireless Bill Orr!) now provides updated information
across a wide variety of platforms
to inform you, our customers, of upcoming
events and club information.
Your first stop for information should be our website:
http://mav.pca.org (note there is no” www” at the
front). But if you would rather receive information
rather than having to look for it, you can subscribe to
our calendar feed from our website, or use one of the
following methods to get the info you need!
Nearly every member receives our email blasts, or
has the opportunity to. As of May 1, we have 1,960 valid
email addresses for primary and associate members
(out of a total of 2,675 active members). If your email
address changes or you want to add your associate
member’s email address, you can do so through www.
pca.org, or by calling the PCA national office at (410)
The second most used resource is our Facebook
It has about 1,200 members, though you don’t
have to be a region member, or even a PCA member
to join. It is a CLOSED group, though which means
membership requests must be approved by an admin,
and anything you post to the group will ONLY be seen
by group members – not by employees, coworkers, or
snoopy friends from high school.
Another popular Facebook group is Mavs and Mochas
It has only a little over 600 members, and is an
OPEN group, meaning friends or sometimes the general
public can see what is posted there. You must still
be approved by an admin to join, and membership in
PCA is not required.
There are very lively discussions on both of our Facebook
groups, and I would encourage everyone who has
a passing interest to check them out.
If you are only interested in event updates, and not
group discussions, you may simply “Like” our Facebook
page at https://www.facebook.com/MaverickPCA/.
No discussion there, just event notifications and information.
We do try to keep our Facebook groups advertiserfree,
and there is a Social Media Policy there which
goes into more detail about what Board Members and
vendors can do and/or say. You can read the Social Media
Policy at http://mav.pca.org/go/SocialMedia.

o who exactly is responsible for getting
Slipstream into your hands each
month? The answer is not as simple
as you might think. First of all, the
members who volunteer their time and talents
each month are first and foremost passionate
about their Porsche(s), just like you. Fortunately,
they are also passionate about getting club information
into their fellow members’ mailboxes each month.
Of course, two of our Board Officers provide columns
regularly. Our Maverick Region President, David
Robertson, shares his musings about the club with us
each month in his Sprockets column.
In addition, Region Secretary Wendy
Shoffit provides comprehensive minutes
of each monthly Board meeting
so that our members can stay current
on the internal workings of your club.
And then there are the Slipstream
“regulars”. They include Carey
Spreen who scans each member article
for proper grammar and punctuation
and even fact checks from
Kurt Scaggs with son Wilson
time to time. Kurt Scaggs designs our event ads
each month to make sure it’s easy for you to
know when and where activities are scheduled.
Ash Seidl-Staley, Jerry DeFeo, Bill Kruder, and
Bill Orr provide regular features each month
for your enjoyment. Andy Mears and Hiram
Saunders make our mailing process work.
And, of course, your many Board members who
write recaps and previews of events. Perhaps most importantly
though, you, our member contributors, for
photos and articles that provide a great variety of reading
and visuals each month. Tom Martin has been a
prolific “non-regular” contributor!
Finally, before each issue of Slipstream
hits your mailbox, our 39
proofreaders, including many of our
previous editors, have gone over each
issue with their keen eyes and caught
all of my errors!
Yes, it’s a team effort every month.
We hope you enjoy your monthly Slipstream
which is the result of these
many volunteers. Carpe Viam!
