Sprockets: Who Will Be First?<br />

By David Robertson, Region President<br />

f I had any pull with the local dealerships<br />

I<br />

I would love to have my name on the list<br />

for one of the new 911 GT3’s that will begin<br />

delivery soon. Although I am sure that the<br />

subject would be very politely and skillfully changed<br />

if I asked for an allocation of one of these cars, many<br />

of our club members have gotten themselves onto the<br />

Porsche “nice” list over the years and will be receiving<br />

these new GT3’s in the coming months.<br />

I mention this because the great thing about our<br />

club is that as soon as our members start getting these<br />

cars you will see them at our events and you can get up<br />

close to experience them. You may not be able to drift<br />

a new GT3 around the track but you will find that the<br />

owners will be more than happy to show them off to<br />

you and answer questions you might have. This is true<br />

of all the great Porsches from rare classics to the newest<br />

limited production models and everything in between.<br />

Mavs and Mochas has become one of the best ways<br />

to simply enjoy looking at a big variety of Porsches and<br />

share yours as well. We usually have over 100 Porsches<br />

show up, and at our last event in June there was a larger<br />

variety of years, models, and I dare say condition, than<br />

I have ever seen! I really enjoy walking around and<br />

speaking to the owners about their cars. There is always<br />

a great story behind each car, no matter how classic or<br />

new the model is! I always learn something new and<br />

meet lots of new people at every Maverick event I attend.<br />

Between social events, driving opportunities and<br />

track time, there are way too many Maverick Region<br />

events each month to cover here so check out the calendar<br />

at mav.pca.org and subscribe to our many social<br />

media networks to stay informed.<br />

One item that I am looking forward to seeing very<br />

soon at our events and out on the road are the PCA<br />

specialty license plates that are now available for preorder.<br />

I can tell you that these<br />

are selling fast! You can order a<br />

You can now<br />

order your<br />

PCA logo<br />

license plates<br />

at http://<br />

mav.pca.org/<br />

go/plate<br />

random selection of letters and<br />

numbers or get a custom plate.<br />

I have already seen some of the<br />

confirmed custom orders and<br />

they are going to be good! Who<br />

will be the first to show up with<br />

one at an event? You can put in<br />

your preorder at http://mav.<br />

pca.org/go/plate. Once we<br />

get to 200 preorders they start<br />

going out and it looks like that<br />

will be soon!<br />

MAV OF THE MONTH: Kurt Scaggs<br />

Our Mav of the Month is a relatively recent volunteer,<br />

but a passionate and longtime Porsche owner. Kurt<br />

Scaggs saw a request for assistance in creating our event<br />

ads in an issue of <strong>Slipstream</strong> last year and decided to<br />

offer his time and talent. Fortunately for our region,<br />

Kurt does graphic design work professionally, so his<br />

“real” work fits in beautifully with our club needs.<br />

Thank you, Kurt, and we appreciate seeing your eyecatching<br />

designs both in <strong>Slipstream</strong> and online!<br />

4 <strong>July</strong>


Gimme a Minute: June Board Meeting Minutes<br />

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary June 7, <strong>2017</strong><br />

resident David Robertson<br />

began the meet-<br />

P<br />

ing at 7:00 pm. It’s the<br />

last one until after the<br />

Porsche Parade. Since we won’t have<br />

the <strong>July</strong> meeting, we needed to have<br />

a nominating committee for next<br />

year’s slate of officers. Bill Kruder<br />

volunteered to chair with the help<br />

of James Shoffit and Jim Hirsch.<br />

Reporting for the treasurer, we have<br />

about $151K in the bank, plus $6K in<br />

Paypal for a total of around $157K.<br />

We were fortunate to net $18K from<br />

the COTA Club Race in March.<br />

Bill Orr said the movie night<br />

(June 16) might be postponed again<br />

because of another rain possibility.<br />

Karl Poulsen made a motion that<br />

we cancel the date and revisit it in<br />

the fall when the prices at the theater<br />

will go down again. Bill Kruder<br />

seconded. The motion passed with<br />

12 votes in favor and 3 opposing.<br />

Refunds will be offered. Orr also<br />

reported that the PCA license plate<br />

design has been approved by Tx-<br />

DOT. He will promote the pre-sale<br />

and once we reach 200, it will go<br />

into full production.<br />

Social Chair Tracy Robertson<br />

reported that Debi Gibson is volunteering<br />

to help with the socials.<br />

She was a significant help at May at<br />

Mayo’s and will be an asset to our<br />

Annual Celebration event, set for<br />

November 4. She has been getting<br />

ideas from others including a kids’<br />

movie event and something at Lone<br />

Star Park with its huge parking lot.<br />

Tour Co-Chair Mark Pitaressi said<br />

that the Fortunata Winery Tour was<br />

good, but we only had about half<br />

the normal amount of cars because<br />

of the rain forecast. We had 54 cars<br />

and 93 people who enjoyed a dry<br />

event. The next tour is in September<br />

to the DE at MotorSport Ranch.<br />

We will again collect gift cards for<br />

charity laps.<br />

6 <strong>July</strong><br />

Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh<br />

showed examples of license plate<br />

frames to go with the new PCA<br />

plates. After some discussion, Jim<br />

Hirsch made a motion to produce<br />

two versions of the frame (quantity<br />

250 and 200) to have in the goodie<br />

store. Tracy Robertson seconded<br />

and the motion was passed. The<br />

plan is to provide them free for the<br />

first 200 purchases of the specialty<br />

license plates. A full plan will come<br />

later. Chris also said that new logo<br />

and Mavs & Mochas stickers are<br />

on the way. There was a discussion<br />

about having Zone 5 stickers produced,<br />

but that was tabled for another<br />

time.<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> Editor Jim Hirsch reported<br />

for Membership Chair John<br />

Hamilton that we are up 22 for this<br />

past month, to 2,587 total members.<br />

Overall this year, including transfers<br />

in, we have 165 new people to Maverick<br />

Region. Regarding <strong>Slipstream</strong>,<br />

he said that upcoming travel plans<br />

mean he must move up his normal<br />

August issue deadline to June 27<br />

from the normal deadline of <strong>July</strong><br />

10 so he has time to produce the<br />

bulk of it before leaving town. As<br />

a reminder to all, he encouraged<br />

submitted photos to be in portrait<br />

mode for cover possibilities.<br />

Advertising Chair Bill Kruder<br />

said that the price increase initiated<br />

to produce the full color version<br />

of <strong>Slipstream</strong> went very well. There<br />

were only a few grumbles and a few<br />

changes, including our Inside Front<br />

Cover slot, which he will be shopping<br />

out. The Mavs & Mochas meets are<br />

going well and have sites scheduled<br />

through December. Every other<br />

month has alternated between East<br />

and West locations. Matt Wilson will<br />

be assisting one in the Fort Worth<br />

area. Bill is working on several<br />

special anniversary car feature displays,<br />

as this year has several model<br />

milestones. The Phoenix Insurance<br />

sponsored a special feather flag to<br />

help improve our event visibility.<br />

Tech Session Chair Nikolaus<br />

Klemmer has our first event set for<br />

Growler Motor Labs in Plano (formerly<br />

Cobb Tuning). It will involve<br />

an engine tune and dyno day. The<br />

date is set for Thursday, <strong>July</strong> 27 and<br />

will be limited to 50 people.<br />

Autocross Chair Mark Schnoerr<br />

said that June 11 is the next event, at<br />

which our Zone Rep Jon Jones will<br />

be attending. He said that the last<br />

event, the mirror-cross at Mineral<br />

Wells, was great fun, and our own Ed<br />

Mayo performed excellently. There<br />

are currently autocross events every<br />

weekend with various clubs.<br />

Webmaster James Shoffit said<br />

that all is going well. He posted the<br />

social media policy on Facebook and<br />

most people have followed it. Only a<br />

few have been removed because of<br />

repeated violations.<br />

Secretary Wendy Shoffit reported<br />

for Jeff Sebert, who is working with<br />

Carey Spreen and Don Sebert (and<br />

the Shoffits) on an off-road event.<br />

After visiting the Northwest OHV<br />

Park in Bridgeport, they decided<br />

to choose September 30 to host<br />

one for our region. More details to<br />

come. Wendy also noted that a small<br />

group of Mavericks attended Fiesta<br />

New Mexico and had a fun time. See<br />

the article for details and results.<br />

David Robertson finished up the<br />

meeting by announcing that Kurt<br />

Scaggs is the Maverick of the Month<br />

for his splendid work on <strong>Slipstream</strong><br />

ads!<br />

The meeting was adjourned at<br />

8:28 pm.

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations<br />

By Bill Kruder, Region Advertising Chair<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

hen I was looking for<br />

W<br />

this month’s interviewee<br />

I decided it was time<br />

that I talked to a woman<br />

with a passion for Porsche. I have<br />

talked to guys, couples, but not interviewed<br />

a woman to date. Let me<br />

start by saying up front: until this<br />

interview we had never met, much<br />

less said hello. However, reading<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> since 1995, I guess you<br />

could say I met her in print having<br />

read her articles over the years.<br />

I’ll give you the opportunity to<br />

as well. So here is the next in my<br />

series of “conversations”…<br />

Linda Bambina, member since<br />

1981 and happy co-driver<br />

2015 Carrera and<br />

1962 356 Karmann coupe<br />

(minus the top now)<br />

Bill Kruder: Well let’s start with<br />

where you are from. I presume not Dallas?<br />

Linda Bambina: What? You can<br />

tell I’m not from here (laughing)?<br />

Actually, I’m from Midland. My dad<br />

was in the oil business and in the<br />

60s there were three things there:<br />

cattle, cotton, and oil. After college<br />

I ended up out near Palm Springs<br />

for a couple years then ended up<br />

moving to Dallas.<br />

BK: And where did you go to college?<br />

LB: I didn’t stray too far. I went<br />

to Texas Tech which is only about<br />

two hours north of Midland.<br />

BK: What did you major in?<br />

LB: I was a Secondary Education<br />

major.<br />

BK: And what did you teach?<br />

LB: I taught Special Education<br />

for ten years, then moved into the<br />

Gifted program, taught Texas history<br />

for some fourteen years, then<br />

became a noisy librarian and eventually<br />

retired after 39 years.<br />

BK: So tell me how you and your<br />

husband Alan met?<br />

12 <strong>July</strong><br />

LB: Alan had moved here from<br />

outside Buffalo, NY and we were<br />

both teachers at R.L. Turner High<br />

School in Carrollton. I was teaching<br />

Special Education and we both<br />

were assigned the same lunch period.<br />

After about a year or so of<br />

lunches we started dating.<br />

BK: That’s a long time before you<br />

ever had a first date.<br />

LB: Well let’s just say life is<br />

complicated; when we did have<br />

our first date, I was in charge of a<br />

Sock Hop and managed to rope<br />

Alan into helping me, no surprise<br />

there (laughing). Well, after the<br />

Sock Hop, Alan asked me to stop<br />

for a drink. We went to a brandnew<br />

place called The Wild Turkey,<br />

then to Don Carter Bowling Lanes<br />

to meet up with his roommate, followed<br />

by a stop at his house before<br />

I said “I need to go home” at 4 am!<br />

BK: Wow that’s some first date! And<br />

how long after did you guys get married?<br />

LB: It was like three weeks later:<br />

we were engaged, and got married<br />

in <strong>July</strong> 1980, the hottest summer<br />

on record. We had 42 days in a row<br />

over 100 degrees which still stands<br />

today, I think.<br />

BK: Let’s talk cars now. What were<br />

you driving then? Alan?<br />

LB: Talk about polar extremes<br />

in cars, I was driving a Ford Pinto,<br />

yes a Pinto (laughing); Alan was<br />

driving a ‘75 911 S in Grand Prix<br />

White. Loves white Porsches.<br />

BK: And what was your first car?<br />

LB: Hard to believe but it was a<br />

1927 Model T, and no I’m not that<br />

old. Got my license at 15 and drove<br />

it all over Midland and later, Lubbock.<br />

BK: So when did you first drive a<br />

Porsche?<br />

LB: It was Alan’s ‘75 911 S. We<br />

went over to this big parking lot in<br />

North Dallas and he bravely taught<br />

me to drive it.<br />

BK: So tell me about when you became<br />

active in the club?<br />

LB: Well Alan had belonged to<br />

the Niagara Region before moving<br />

here in 1978, and I joined in 1981.<br />

We had met Joan and Barry Gibbs<br />

who owned IXXI Enterprises at the<br />

time. Joan was president in ’83 and<br />

she needed someone to be the Advertising<br />

Chair. I said “yes” and that<br />

led to many years and positions over<br />

the next 14 years. (Interesting side<br />

note: we have had only two women<br />

presidents: Joan was the first in<br />

1983 and Fran Ussery in 1984.)<br />

BK: So was Alan also active in the<br />

club?<br />

LB: He was in activities but I was<br />

the one who was involved with the<br />

board and kind of pulled Alan in. It<br />

wasn’t until 1986 that Alan became<br />

President and he did that for two<br />

terms, staying on through the 1987<br />

DFW Parade which was such a busy<br />

time.<br />

BK: And what other positions have<br />

you held?<br />

LB: Let’s see, I was Ad Chair,<br />

Secretary, and Co-Vice President<br />

with Alan back when we had fullblown<br />

monthly dinner meetings<br />

with programs.<br />

BK: I know you have done a lot more<br />

than just hold positions. Tell me about<br />

Autocross and Mineral Wells?<br />

LB: Well we had Autocrosses in<br />

parking lots but light poles became<br />

an issue (smiling). In 1986, one<br />

of our members discovered there<br />

was an old airfield in Mineral Wells<br />

that we could use. Let me tell you<br />

it was more field than an airfield.<br />

So a group of us with our yard<br />

tools in hand started clearing out a<br />

“course”; we originally cleared only<br />

what we would be driving on.<br />

BK: I’m told you have been active at<br />

the national level too with the Porsche<br />

Parade?<br />

LB: The first Parade for which I<br />

had an active role (I was the Reg-

istrar) was in 1987 right here in Dallas. It was held at<br />

the DFW Airport hotel (called the Amfac then). We garaged<br />

our cars there and used Bear Creek Golf Course<br />

for the car show and Concours. But what was interesting<br />

about this Parade was that, up till then, all scoring<br />

was done by hand and on paper. With the urging of<br />

Charlie Davis, we used computers for the first time.<br />

We had our hiccups but it changed forever how things<br />

would be done and the Mavericks are to thank for that.<br />

In 1997 I was part of the planning committee for<br />

the San Antonio Parade. That was an interesting one<br />

too, as the Longhorn Region was down to nothing,<br />

and Coastal Bend (Corpus Christi) and Maverick were<br />

asked to step in. We would drive down once a month<br />

for meetings then head right back to get to work. To<br />

make this one more interesting we added my silly but<br />

fun “Costume Concours” in which you dressed up your<br />

car and yourself on a personal theme.<br />

The third Parade for which I was a staff member was<br />

in 2004 in Fort Worth. My good friend Jan (Mayo) Michel<br />

was the Parade Chair, and I was the Entertainment<br />

Chair, which is a position they invented for just me.<br />

BK: That was actually my first Parade to attend. How did<br />

that one go?<br />

LB: Well being in Cow Town, we of course went with<br />

that theme. Every Parade has a Volunteer Party. Hans-<br />

Peter Porsche was attending and I managed to talk him<br />

into helping us. Several of us dressed up as famous<br />

Country Personalities; Peter was dressed as Roy Rogers,<br />

I was Dale Evans, and we sang “Happy Trails to You” to<br />

about 500 volunteers at that party.<br />

BK: So how many Parades have you attended?<br />

LB: Think I have been to about 28.<br />

BK: Now I have to ask about this infamous vest.<br />

LB: Well that came about after attending the 1993<br />

Parade in Cincinnati. They had this table-decorating<br />

contest, and our<br />

table thought we<br />

should step up<br />

the game and<br />

each make fancy<br />

Porsche Crest<br />

T-shirts to wear.<br />

Well some time<br />

later I decided to<br />

get more use out<br />

of the crest I had<br />

made: I bought<br />

a pair of K-mart<br />

black jeans and cut<br />

a vest out of them<br />

and sewed the<br />

crest from the T-<br />

shirt on the back.<br />

BK: Let’s fast forward to 2012 and the Mav’s 50th Anniversary.<br />

I understand you had your input there.<br />

LB: I did, I did. I decided we should have a “Family<br />

Portrait” of sorts. I wanted to get 50 cars, one of each<br />

year represented since Maverick had existed -- but not<br />

just anyone’s car. They HAD to have been active on the<br />

board. Somehow with lots of help I managed to track<br />

them all down in about seven months.<br />

BK: And there was one other thing that we are using today.<br />

LB: YES, I’m thrilled to hear about the tag line Maverick<br />

is using today. Mavs had been using “It’s not just<br />

the cars, it’s the people” since ‘86 when Alan used it<br />

in his President’s column in <strong>Slipstream</strong>. Much more recently,<br />

in talking with Fran Ussery, she came up with . . .<br />

“Driving Friendships”<br />


Insuring your Porsche: Part 1 – Classic Porsches<br />

By Justin Husman<br />

Photo by Jim Hirsch<br />

orsches are some of the most beautiful performance<br />

machines built, and they occupy<br />

P<br />

an interesting position in the automotive<br />

world. They are the exotic car you can drive<br />

every day comfortably, they are the daily driver car that<br />

you can track comfortably, and they are the collector<br />

car that you can buy at a dealership without an invitation.<br />

As such, they can be tricky to insure correctly, and<br />

all insurance isn’t necessarily correct. This is the first<br />

in a three part series about insuring your Porsche, and<br />

today’s topic is insuring your classic Porsche.<br />

14 <strong>July</strong><br />

Classic car insurance is different than insuring a<br />

daily driver. Classic polices are written on an “agreed<br />

value” basis, which is different than most insurance.<br />

When you purchase a policy for your everyday car, at<br />

the time of loss the car will be valued at actual cash value<br />

– whatever they are selling for today. As we all know,<br />

classic Porsches are not listed in bluebook, and it seems<br />

that their values go up every year. With an agreed value<br />

policy, you are able to set the value of your car before<br />

you purchase the policy, so you know exactly what you<br />

will be paid at the time of loss. This results in a “no<br />

negotiation” claims process, painless and simple.<br />

Classic agreed value policies do have some stipulations,<br />

which vary from company to company. All of<br />

them require the car to be garaged, and most require<br />

limited driving. A lot of people think that means that<br />

you are only allowed to go to shows and parades, but in<br />

reality, it means staying within your mileage plan ( generally<br />

somewhere between 1,200 – 3,500 miles a year).<br />

You must also have a daily driver automobile for each<br />

driver in the household.<br />

Right now, I know some of you are saying, “But my<br />

Porsche isn’t 25 years old, so how does this apply to me?<br />

Thanks for wasting my time, insurance man.” In order<br />

to qualify for an agreed value classic type policy, the car<br />

must be either 25 years old, or have some collector interest.<br />

Two-door Porsches are almost always considered collectible<br />

cars, especially if they are presented to a classic<br />

insurance company by an agent who specializes in<br />

this type of policy. Not every classic company will write<br />

more modern Porsches, but there are some that will.<br />

Having a good agent who knows the classic market is<br />

the best way to get classic agreed value coverage.<br />

The real question most people have about insurance<br />

is how much it will cost. The beauty of a classic<br />

agreed value policy is that they are very inexpensive;<br />

for example, a 1979 911 SC valued at $30,000 would<br />

cost approximately $300 a year. For more modern cars,<br />

it’s a little more expensive, but not by much -- $30,000<br />

coverage on a 2009 Boxster would cost approximately<br />

$398 for the year. As long as all the underlying usage<br />

and garaging requirements are met, classic insurance<br />

is cheap and very worthwhile.<br />

In part 2, I will discuss how to best cover your daily<br />

driver Porsche, especially if it is modified or is of high<br />

value.<br />

Fiesta New Mexico: 50th Anniversary of the Roadrunner Region<br />

By Wendy Shoffit<br />

Photos by Jim Hirsch<br />

fter many years of wanting<br />

to go, James and I<br />

A<br />

attended our very first<br />

Fiesta New Mexico this<br />

year. The event was a real hoot and<br />

the Santa Fe area was amazing, but<br />

what we really noticed were the<br />

people! A small group of Mavericks<br />

attended, most of whom we knew,<br />

but some of whom we have just now<br />

became acquainted with and really<br />

enjoyed their company. The group<br />

of Mavericks attending included<br />

the two of us, Mark and Monda<br />

Hanna, Young and Lynn Slack,<br />

Bob Aines, Uday Nandam, along<br />

with Jim and Sharon Hirsch. Kevin<br />

Creed was also registered, but his<br />

Porsche ended up out of commission<br />

a week before the event.<br />

Sharon, Lynn, and Wendy<br />

Surprisingly to us, two Mavs<br />

(Mark Hanna and Tom Leavitt)<br />

are former Presidents of the Roadrunner<br />

Region! We also got to see<br />

former Mavs who were now living<br />

in the Santa Fe area (Jan and Joe<br />

Michel and Steve Fallon). But the<br />

real surprise to us was how welcoming<br />

everyone else was, and how easy<br />

it was to make new friends there!<br />

Never being ones to shy away from<br />

meeting new people, James and I<br />

found ourselves easily gravitating<br />

to a few locals and had a wonderful<br />

time. James wants to visit one<br />

couple from Los Alamos on our<br />

way to Parade this year, partly because<br />

they have goats and an attack<br />

llama! Ask him about that one.<br />

Pecos Pueblo was one of dozens of<br />

fascinating sites visited<br />

We saw some amazing scenery<br />

on the tours, got to know more<br />

about Santa Fe on the rally we participated<br />

in, enjoyed a beautiful<br />

car show on the square, and had<br />

an awesome time competing in<br />

the autocross. We both took home<br />

2nd Place trophies, just behind a<br />

couple in another white GT4 with<br />

sticky tires. We were proud of our<br />

placement and had fun doing it!<br />

Watch out, Parade! This year we’re<br />

bringing the GT4 and are coming<br />

to play.<br />

The Shoffits - always fast in the<br />

autocross events<br />

Santa Fe Plaza served as the car show<br />

location for perusing our Porsches<br />

Hopefully our members won’t<br />

shy away from attending other regional<br />

or national events. The people<br />

have always made us feel welcome<br />

no matter where we go! This<br />

is a phenomenal way to see new<br />

places and things AND have an instant<br />

connection with people while<br />

doing it. So, consider Fiesta New<br />

Mexico or PCA Palooza or Treffen<br />

or even Parade for your next vacation.<br />

You won’t regret the experience!<br />

These Are Not Your Average Garage Queens!<br />

By Bob Molyneux<br />

o the names Peerless,<br />

D<br />

Locomobile, Stanley, or<br />

Stevens Duryea mean<br />

anything to you? Well,<br />

to a small group of automobile<br />

aficionados, these are not just old<br />

car names, they are the chariots for<br />

great adventures!<br />

The rare Peerless<br />

Early last June, I was in northern<br />

Minnesota when the Red Rock Car<br />

Club came through the area. The<br />

club was in the middle of its Summer<br />

Rendezvous, a 2,000 mile,<br />

three-week trek from Eau Clare,<br />

Wisconsin to International Falls,<br />

Minnesota and back. A total of 23<br />

cars started the tour, and when I<br />

saw them halfway through their<br />

journey, only one car had dropped<br />

out.<br />

To be eligible to join the club, a<br />

car has to have been built no later<br />

than 1914. There were many different<br />

makes in the tour, including a<br />

Fiat, Model T’s, Stanley Steamers,<br />

Rolls-Royces, and more. These<br />

older cars come with challenges<br />

that the newer cars don’t present.<br />

This tour is totally self-supported,<br />

The Stanley and Stevens Duryea<br />

so when something<br />

goes<br />

wrong out on<br />

the road, each<br />

driver needs<br />

to be able to<br />

perform the<br />

required maintenance<br />

on his<br />

own. For example,<br />

one of<br />

the cars needed<br />

a magneto<br />

change on the<br />

way to International<br />

Falls.<br />

Even over a hundred years old, the Roll Royce is still stately<br />

The steam cars have their own<br />

miles an hour down the road,” said<br />

issues -- they have to stop every<br />

the driver of a 1911 Rolls-Royce.<br />

40 or 50 miles for water. The drivers<br />

say they get the funniest looks<br />

He said slipping behind the wheel<br />

of a 105-year-old car helps slow the<br />

when they are caught getting water<br />

pace of life. “You are generally on<br />

out of a home-owner’s hose. This<br />

secondary roads, traveling at 45 to<br />

also adds to the adventure because<br />

50 miles an hour. You can go down<br />

these water breaks invariably lead<br />

the same road that you have gone<br />

to interesting conversations with<br />

down every day in your modern car<br />

complete strangers.<br />

and see things that would just go by<br />

you.”<br />

The driver of a 1914 Fiat said he<br />

had been involved in antique cars<br />

since 1962 when he and a former<br />

coworker bought their first car. He<br />

has been doing it ever since. He<br />

said something that also resonates<br />

with the Porsche club members.<br />

“It’s all about the people – friends<br />

within the hobby. Also, these cars<br />

bring out the nicest people. If we<br />

Anne Molyneux checking out the have a problem, the people who<br />

Stanley and the controls needed to happen to be there will do anything<br />

drive the steamer. And you thought they can to help us.”<br />

Porsche controls were complicated! So, the next time you look at<br />

Some of these cars are really<br />

your beloved Porsche that has been<br />

world travelers. On this tour, the<br />

sitting in the garage for too long,<br />

cars came from across the nation,<br />

think about the members of the<br />

including Florida, New Hampshire,<br />

Red Rock car club and their overand<br />

Illinois. One car had been to<br />

100-year-old cars that they get out<br />

seven countries and another to<br />

and exercise on a regular basis!<br />

nine.<br />

356s On the Move: The Tub Club Goes to Fredericksburg<br />

By Barbara Madsen<br />

Photo courtesy of the Author<br />

t was a three-day jaunt,<br />

I<br />

which was organized<br />

by Jim Usher. We drove<br />

along meandering<br />

roads blanketed by wildflowers on<br />

each side. Winter had shed its dreary<br />

cloak, and the entire countryside<br />

had burst forth with all the enthusiasm<br />

of renewed growth that spring<br />

brings. It had just rained, and the<br />

fresh green of the new leaves was<br />

accented by brilliant splashes of<br />

every color in the rainbow. It was<br />

a breathtaking sight! These fragile<br />

beauties of nature flanked every<br />

road we drove on that weekend. It<br />

was as if each flower was trying its<br />

best to outdo all of the neighboring<br />

flowers in its intensity of color and<br />

beauty!<br />

We spent Saturday driving along<br />

Texas country roads, which wandered<br />

through small towns whose<br />

buildings demonstrated the character<br />

and tradition of communities<br />

established many years ago. We<br />

stopped at the Old Timer General<br />

Store & Gas Station, a business located<br />

just outside Medina, which<br />

provided the local population with<br />

the items they needed. It seemed to<br />

me to be a perfect example of an<br />

old country store. A visit to this part<br />

of Texas is never complete without<br />

a stop at the Laurel Tree, a fabulous<br />

French restaurant tucked away<br />

in hills surrounding Utopia.<br />

We stayed at the Hangar Hotel<br />

during our visit to the Hill Country.<br />

Although hotels are usually fairly<br />

unremarkable, this one was very<br />

unique. The hotel building was<br />

made to look like a WWII military<br />

hangar, and it was located at the airport<br />

in Fredericksburg. The interior<br />

of the hotel was also reflective<br />

of the military during the WWII<br />

era, and the front desk set the tone<br />

for the rest of the hotel with various<br />

forms of 1940’s memorabilia:<br />

a manual typewriter, an antique<br />

PBX, pictures of WWII planes, and<br />

black and white pictures of people<br />

who were young in a day gone by.<br />

There was a C-47 Skytrain in front<br />

of the hotel as well to complete the<br />

picture.<br />

Tub Club at the Laurel Tree<br />

Thank you, Jim, for a fabulously<br />

colorful spring drive along Texas<br />

country roads! We all had a great<br />

time!<br />

Autocross 4: MirrorCross at the MineralRing<br />

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair<br />

n Sunday, May 28 (Memorial Day weekend),<br />

O<br />

our partner Equipe Rapide held another<br />

MirrorCross-format event at the huge Mineral<br />

Wells Airport site. This is a dual-course<br />

format incorporating a drag-race style Christmas tree<br />

start, recording reaction time to the green light, 60-<br />

foot acceleration time, and very similar but opposite<br />

left and right courses. Displaced or downed cones<br />

added two seconds, and only the best times from each<br />

Photo courtesy of the Author<br />

side were added together to determine winners in each<br />

class. The holiday weekend and many other motorsports<br />

activities to choose from still attracted 83 entries<br />

Tech Session: Growler Motor Labs<br />

By Nikolaus Klemmer, Region Tech Sessions Chair<br />

’m happy to let our Maverick Region members<br />

know that I’ve begun the process of<br />

I<br />

scheduling tech sessions after an extended<br />

hiatus of these types of events. I’m still new<br />

to this Tech Session Chair role, but am making good<br />

progress with getting to know our sponsors and the<br />

tech needs of our members.<br />

The first session I’ve been able to schedule will be<br />

hosted at Growler Motor Labs (former Cobb Tuning).<br />

They are located at 1200 Placid Ave. #550, Plano, TX<br />

75074. The session will be held on Thursday, <strong>July</strong> 27,<br />

from 6:30pm – 8:30pm and the topic is Porsche Engine<br />

Tuning and Dyno Opportunities.<br />

So, this tech session will focus on what is involved<br />

with modern engine tuning and a practical demonstration<br />

of the obtained results. The session will run in two<br />

parallel tracks and attendees can observe the process<br />

for both. In one, the Growler staff will explain the<br />

process of engine tuning and will perform a live tune<br />

using the Cobb Accessport device.We are looking for<br />

an interested member to have this done on their car.<br />

This member will need the Accessport device (which<br />

can be purchased from Growler at a discount especially<br />

for this event), and the tune will be done as part of the<br />

event for free!<br />

In the other track, Growler will make their 4-wheel<br />

dyno available for member cars. Members should mention<br />

during sign-in that they want their cars dyno’ed.<br />

Depending on the number of cars wanting to have this<br />

done and the time restriction during the event, not all<br />

cars may be able to get a run. The final selection as to<br />

which cars get chosen lies with the host.<br />

I am told that the Macan (S/GTS/Turbo) models<br />

respond particularly well to the tune. Other cars that<br />

work with the Accessport are:<br />

• 981 Boxster, Caymans & 991 Carreras (need to<br />

confirm the GT4)<br />

• 987.2 Boxster, Cayman<br />

• 996 Turbo<br />

• 997.1 Turbo & GT2 & GT3/GT3RS<br />

• 997.2 Turbo & GT3/GT3RS<br />

• 991 Turbo & GT2<br />

May Mavs & Mochas: Las Colinas Village<br />

By Bill Kruder and Debi Gibson, Region Coffee Meet Co-Chairs, Photos by Andrew Barber<br />

o I’m not sure if there<br />

S<br />

is a better way to start<br />

your Saturday -- coffee<br />

and donuts with nearly<br />

100 Porches isn’t a bad thing. This<br />

month we headed back west a bit<br />

to Starbucks in Las Colinas Village.<br />

Did I say donuts? What started<br />

out as a couple of us just bringing a<br />

couple dozen for the early birds has<br />

turned into 7-8 dozen donuts that<br />

just about made it till 10:00, as Debi<br />

hand-delivered the last few.<br />

Once again, over 100 Porsche cars joined in this monthly event<br />

So next month, <strong>July</strong> 15, please<br />

join us at Stonebriar Community<br />

Church in Frisco where we will be<br />

featuring the 40th Anniversary of<br />

the 928: Driving Friendships.<br />

Donuts - tradition for the early arrivals<br />

And did I mention the 100 cars?<br />

We had nearly every model represented<br />

minus the 914, so you “teeners”<br />

need to come out. We had two<br />

exceptional slant noses, a couple<br />

356s, a couple vintage Targas, a 968,<br />

a few very nice 928s, and a new 718<br />

Cayman in that stunning Graphite<br />

Blue color. When you think about<br />

it we had 54 years’ worth of cars<br />

there. Where or when else do you<br />

get to see a collection of cars of<br />

these varying vintages?<br />

Jimmy “jimmyg” Gallegos; let’s just<br />

say that we did not disappoint.<br />

And lastly we flew the Mavs &<br />

Mochas feather flag for the first<br />

time, thanks to the generosity of<br />

Justin Husman’s Phoenix Insurance<br />

group.<br />

Bill and Debi with the new M&M flag<br />

We also started our quarterly<br />

charity effort which was a can drive<br />

Detailing Tips: Clay Bar vs Surface Prep Mitt<br />

By Tony “Concorso”<br />

Images courtesy of the Author<br />

n the course of daily<br />

I<br />

business I get a variety<br />

of car care questions<br />

about the best ways to<br />

go about washing, drying, and general<br />

prep for waxing, sealing or the<br />

latest in coating applications.<br />

This month’s tip is based on<br />

the car already being washed and<br />

dried properly, and being ready<br />

to remove more deeply embedded<br />

matter.<br />

One of the universal steps in<br />

paint surface prep is claying. This<br />

process removes embedded debris<br />

and particulate from the paint surface,<br />

leaving a smooth, clean result<br />

ready for further treatment.<br />

Traditionally, we’ve always used<br />

clay bars to remove those contaminants,<br />

but it’s proved to be a bit<br />

of a mess. You’re always having to<br />

re-knead the clay so you can have a<br />

clean section, and if you drop the<br />

bar, forget it; you’ll have to toss it<br />

and buy another.<br />

In recent years, advancements in<br />

the technology brought us the surface<br />

prep (clay) mitt as an alternative<br />

to traditional clay bar use.<br />

One primary difference is that<br />

clay comes in a jar and the mitt is<br />

worn like a glove.<br />

Quite a number of manufacturers<br />

offer claying products of both<br />

types and are of generally good<br />

quality. Brands such as Eagle One,<br />

Nanoskin, Griots, and Chemical<br />

Guys are all widely available.<br />

Surface prep mitts are widely available<br />

To use clay, the product needs<br />

to be hand warmed and softened.<br />

It’s important to note that using<br />

cold hard clay can mar the paint<br />

significantly. Press the clay out in<br />

a pad fashion in your palm. Now,<br />

using your favorite instant detailer,<br />

spray the painted surface liberally,<br />

as well as the clay in your hand, and<br />

begin cleaning, using a short backand-forth<br />

motion with little or no<br />

pressure.<br />

Wipe clean with a clean microfiber<br />

towel. Repeat the process until<br />

complete.<br />

Surface prep (clay) mitts make the<br />

claying process go much more<br />

quickly with good quality results<br />

The new clay mitts are a little<br />

easier to use and cover much more<br />

surface in the same time. Simply<br />

put the mitt on your hand, spray<br />

the painted surface and the mitt<br />

with instant detailer, and start<br />

cleaning. A quick note: clay mitts<br />

come in fine, medium, and coarse<br />

varieties. Fine and medium have<br />

been very effective for me and<br />

are typically what you would use<br />

for normal surface contaminants.<br />

The mitt offers protection for your<br />

hand as well. Cleaning around trim<br />

and other sharp parts of the car can<br />

make for a painful experience with<br />

clay if you’re not careful.<br />

Now for the distinguishing advantages<br />

and disadvantages. Clay<br />

is roughly $20 for a 16 to 20 ounce<br />

jar. A clay mitt runs about $45.<br />

A jar of clay can do five to ten<br />

cars, depending on how contaminated<br />

the paint is. A mitt can do<br />

20 to 30 cars, again, depending on<br />

condition of the paint.<br />

I’ve found clay for as low as<br />

$10.00 on special discounts and<br />

mitts for $15.00. The point is to<br />

keep an eye out so you can save a<br />

little money. Most all of the auto<br />

parts stores have some variety of<br />

clay in stock. Mitts can be a little<br />

tougher to find, but are generally<br />

available, especially online.<br />

Again, a huge distinction between<br />

the two is during the claying<br />

process, should you happen to<br />

drop the clay on the floor, you’re<br />

done with that portion of clay. You<br />

must throw it away or risk further<br />

marring of the paint with the debris<br />

picked up from the floor. It<br />

happens all the time.<br />

Clay mitts however, are forgiving.<br />

Drop the mitt, no problem.<br />

Simply wash the mitt with a little<br />

soap and water, rinse, and you’re<br />

back to work.<br />

In the final analysis, both products<br />

have their merits, but the<br />

speed of application and cleanability<br />

of the clay mitt make it my current<br />

choice for daily work.<br />

A quick side bar for consideration<br />

in all aspects of cleaning your<br />

car: safety. I recommend wearing<br />

gloves, either nitrile or latex, as<br />

well as eye protection. Though<br />

most products are environmentally-friendly,<br />

that does not mean they<br />

won’t dry out your skin or burn like<br />

the devil, should they get in your<br />

eyes -- believe me.<br />

I hope you find this discussion<br />

of clay bars versus clay mitts useful.<br />

Should any of you have further<br />

questions regarding<br />

any aspect of detailing,<br />

please feel free to<br />

reach out and I’ll try<br />

to help.<br />

Five Speed Chatter: Is it a Battle or a Commute? (Part 1)<br />

By Ash Seidl-Staley<br />

Images courtesy of the Author<br />

ince my wife and I have<br />

S<br />

moved to the quiet little<br />

town of Forney, the time<br />

we spend commuting to<br />

and from work has grown exponentially. Technically,<br />

Jenny’s commute has doubled. She went from spending<br />

around twenty-five minutes driving through Plano<br />

and on the President George Bush Turnpike to fifty<br />

minutes driving on three separate highways from the<br />

opposite end of the Metroplex. Before sympathy for<br />

Jenny starts rolling in, you must know that my commute<br />

has increased by a factor of eight! Given that I<br />

had it coming -- I have been spoiled living in Plano for<br />

the past six years. On any given day, it would take me<br />

seven minutes to get to work, nine if there was traffic<br />

or if I were to hit the solitary traffic light in my path.<br />

Now, my commute, if I’m lucky that is, is fifty minutes.<br />

But for a matter of simplicity, let’s just call the running<br />

average an hour.<br />

Now that I spend a heck of a lot more<br />

time on Texas’ roadways, highways, and<br />

tollways, I have finally come to realize just<br />

how busy and overcrowded the Dallas/Fort<br />

Worth area really is. I mean, can we get more<br />

lanes on Highway 80, please? How about an extension<br />

for the George Bush Turnpike that crosses Lake Ray<br />

Hubbard and goes into Heath? Doesn’t<br />

anyone realize that hopping off the highway<br />

only to get back on two exits down is<br />

part of the reason why there is congestion<br />

in the first place? I think about questions<br />

like these, as well as many others, as I travel<br />

through Forney, Sunnyvale, Mesquite,<br />

Garland, Rowlett, Richardson, and Plano.<br />

Yes, you read that right, I travel through seven cities to<br />

get to and from work each and every day. I can switch<br />

my route some by swapping Sunnyvale and Mesquite<br />

for Rockwall and Heath, but by doing that I’m really<br />

just giving up highway speeds for a 45 mph speed limit<br />

on a two lane road that may or may not have a tractor<br />

on it. To be honest, most days it’s not the duration of<br />

the drive that gets to me; it’s the terrible driving of the<br />

people I am forced to share the roadways with! I mean,<br />

really, is this a commute or a full on battle royale?<br />

During the past few months both my patience and<br />

my sanity have been tested by a cornucopia of crappy<br />

driving. I will be taking the time this month, as well as<br />

next month, to discuss some these occurrences, and to<br />

describe some of the things I’ve noticed about DFW’s<br />

drivers. I’m sure that we all deal with some of these on<br />

a daily basis, so discussing them here might prove to<br />

be therapeutic, right? I sure hope so; those of us with<br />

terrible commutes could use some relief every now and<br />

then. Most of the terms and concepts I use to describe<br />

these horrible driving habits will be familiar to you, but<br />

I am sure that there are some that you might not have<br />

seen, read, or heard since your last driving exam with<br />

the Department of Motor Vehicles.<br />

Let’s start things off with a simple one: The Tailgater.<br />

We all know about the drivers that pop up out of<br />

nowhere in the rearview mirror. Usually, you miss them<br />

coming up into your car’s sacred spaces because they<br />

can’t seem to stay in one lane for very long and instead,<br />

weave in and out of traffic for miles and miles. But once<br />

they are behind you, tailgaters cannot help but make<br />

their presence known. They honk their horns, flail<br />

their hands about, and scream “get the (expletive) out<br />

of the way” while listening to something obnoxious on<br />

KISS-FM. Tailgaters constantly accelerate and brake,<br />

basically pump-faking your back bumper, which in turn<br />

makes you nervous, a little frustrated, and a whole lot<br />

of angry. Now I don’t know about you, but there have<br />

been numerous times where I will be apprehensively<br />

going 47 in a 40, and still have a SUV crowding my back<br />

end! Like, seriously, how is 7 mph over the speed limit<br />

not fast enough? For some I guess it is not.<br />

The Texas Driver’s handbook offers up the term<br />

Velocitation Effect in an attempt to justify the speed<br />

demon inside all tailgaters, but I’m not convinced.<br />

The velocitation effect is the effect that traveling at a<br />

constant high rate of speed has on a driver that makes<br />

the driver feel like any reduction in speed is way too<br />

slow. As a result, the driver fails to slow down enough to<br />

safely drive on a city’s roads. I think tailgaters are more<br />

inclined to just be unsavory reprobates than velocity<br />

addicts, but what do I know? What I do know is how to<br />

make tailgaters even more aggravated than they already<br />

are, which is by brake-checking them, and/or purposefully<br />

decelerating to the actual speed limit while making<br />

sure that there is a car next to you doing the same.<br />

I tell you what -- there is nothing better than blocking<br />

a tailgater for a few blocks, watching him swerve out of<br />

multiple lanes trying to get around, see him finally get<br />

out from behind the blockade and speed off, only to be<br />

pulled over by the Rowlett police department for going<br />

56 in a 40!<br />

Stay tuned for part two of this article next month, in<br />

which we will be discussing wolf packs, drivers that<br />

swerve, the problems with cruise control, and, thanks<br />

to Governor Abbot, Texas’s newest laws as they relate to<br />

texting and driving. Until then, stay safe during battle<br />

and as always . . . Wrench on Mavs!<br />

Inside Look: PCA Zone 5 Presidents’ Meeting<br />

By Carey Spreen<br />

he Porsche Club of America is made up of<br />

T<br />

over 140 individual Regions in the US and<br />

Canada. Those Regions are grouped into<br />

13 Zones. Zone 5 covers all of Arkansas and<br />

Louisiana, all of Oklahoma except the Panhandle, and<br />

the eastern two-thirds of Texas. You can find a map<br />

showing the boundaries of the 12 Regions on the Zone<br />

5 website: www.zone5.pca.org. You can also find a lot of<br />

other useful information on that website, and I encourage<br />

you to visit it early and often!<br />

Each PCA Zone has regular meetings of the Region<br />

Presidents. The most recent Presidents’ Meeting in<br />

February was held in Grapevine, with Zone 5 Representative<br />

Jon Jones (from Cimarron Region) running<br />

the meeting.<br />

PCNA perspective<br />

The first presenter was Steve Krysil, Regional Manager<br />

for Porsche Cars North America (and Maverick<br />

Region member), who always has lots of facts and<br />

figures for us, and didn’t disappoint this time. Two of<br />

those interesting facts were that 72% of all Porsches<br />

sold in the US last year had four doors, and 64% were<br />

SUVs. Whether you are a fan of the non-sports-car<br />

Porsches or not, it is clear that these models are what<br />

allows Porsche to keep making those sports cars and<br />

supercars that are so near and dear to us. Steve noted<br />

that, contrary to rumor, Porsche will continue to offer<br />

a manual transmission in its GT cars. Demand from us<br />

has shown Porsche AG that there are still, and will continue<br />

to be, buyers for the stick-shift for years to come.<br />

Steve touched on the all-electric Mission E, which is<br />

still about three years from production, but will be able<br />

to recharge to 80% capacity in less than 30 minutes.<br />

Additionally, upcoming high-performance Porsches of<br />

the sporting variety will top 500 hp, and don’t be surprised<br />

to see a non-turbo 718 GTS model as well.<br />

He reported that the Porsche Experience Centers<br />

in Atlanta and Carson, CA are doing well. For a threefigure<br />

entry fee you can experience 90 minutes in just<br />

about any current Porsche model in a variety of settings,<br />

including off-road, complete with driving coach.<br />

From the President<br />

Next up was PCA National President Caren Cooper,<br />

who hails from Hill Country Region (and a few others<br />

for good measure!). Caren described the Vision 2020<br />

program, which establishes a goal of 100,000 primary<br />

PCA members (i.e., households) from the current<br />

total of about 77,000 by the end of the year 2020. To<br />

reach that goal, the club intends to increase PCA brand<br />

awareness by demonstrating available member benefits<br />

and improving member services without increasing the<br />

workload on our volunteer base. PCA wants to be the<br />

number one independent source for all things Porsche,<br />

and to make it clear that PCA membership is the most<br />

important option you can buy for your Porsche. PCA<br />

brings you into an entire community, even a lifestyle<br />

experience. Additionally, PCA is keenly aware of the<br />

potential of social media as well, and is beefing up its<br />

presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.<br />

There are currently 678 Porsche clubs worldwide,<br />

and all are owned and run by Porsche AG -- except<br />

PCA. This unique independence is very important to<br />

PCA and will continue to be maintained.<br />

Caren identified these future areas of improvement:<br />

• Developing programs to involve owners of<br />

Porsche four-door models<br />

• Streamlining the procedure for dealers to purchase<br />

and provide PCA memberships to new buyers<br />

• Improving the PCA Test Drive 6-month program<br />

(formerly known as Quest) to allow prospective<br />

owners to experience what PCA membership provides<br />

• Formalize multi-generational memberships<br />

(membership option for children of PCA members)<br />

In closing, Caren shared with us that PCA has an<br />

operating budget of about $9 million per year, with approximately<br />

5,000 events per year, 2,000 of those being<br />

“moving car” events that require insurance notification.<br />

Ken Laborde, PCA National Insurance and Risk<br />

Management Chair, discussed this at length, which you<br />

can read about in the May <strong>2017</strong> issue of <strong>Slipstream</strong>.<br />

Other PCA business<br />

Jon wrapped up the day by recommending<br />

RegionFocus magazine as a good resource for those<br />

who are new to running Regional events and activities.<br />

It contains hints and suggestions for attracting and<br />

retaining new members – something that all Regions<br />

struggle with from time to time.<br />

Another handy resource is the Region Procedures<br />

Manual (RPM), which is available both online and in<br />

print form. The RPM contains information about Club<br />

resources, subsidies, event promotion, communication,<br />

social media, crisis management, national awards,<br />

minimum safety standards, and Porsche Clubs worldwide.<br />

A great way to keep up with Zone 5 news and<br />

events is by following the Zone 5 Facebook page.<br />

As the day wrapped up, Jon presented certificates<br />

for Regional anniversaries, one of which was to Maverick<br />

Region on its 55th anniversary.<br />

In summary, a lot of useful information gets exchanged<br />

at these meetings, which is why Maverick Region<br />

always tries to have someone in attendance representing<br />

you!<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

orsche Pilgerschaft (Pilgrimage) season is<br />

P<br />

definitely upon us. Whether your Porsche<br />

is a Roadster, Cabriolet, Targa, Coupe, or<br />

4-door model, the long days of summer provide<br />

many opportunities to exercise your fine example<br />

of German engineering.<br />

Maverick members love to drive their Porsche vehicles<br />

and end up enjoying a wide array of road trip<br />

adventures throughout the year. Highlights of those<br />

often make their way into <strong>Slipstream</strong> articles and are<br />

some of the most-read and commented on features of<br />

our club newsletter. Sharon and I are trying to be good<br />

examples of this by leaving on <strong>July</strong> 1 for a 25-day, 6,000<br />

mile exercise regimen for our 2014 Boxster S.<br />

Along the way, Maverick members have noted many<br />

accessories that help make these road trips more enjoyable<br />

and a bit easier on your Porsche. Since many<br />

road trips often involve some walking/hiking<br />

to interesting locations along the way, some<br />

members have opted to replace their carpeted<br />

floormats with an easier to clean rubber mat.<br />

Again, the most popular (and best looking)<br />

option is the Porsche-branded mats. These are<br />

available from your local Porsche dealer or online at<br />

suncoastparts.com (remember to use your 10% PCA<br />

member discount to save a few dollars).<br />

Closer to home, the Maverick Region is hosting<br />

some exciting activities for you to consider joining this<br />

month. Our monthly Mavs & Mochas is in Frisco on<br />

<strong>July</strong> 15 and our monthly Social is in Richardson on <strong>July</strong><br />

22. Our first tech session in quite some time will be on<br />

<strong>July</strong> 27 at Growler Motor Labs in Plano.<br />

With a focus on driving, our Poker Rally is scheduled<br />

for <strong>July</strong> 22 with an Autocross on the calendar for<br />

<strong>July</strong> 30 in Mesquite.<br />

Finally, as you read this, 33 of your fellow Maverick<br />

members (including Sharon and I) are likely on the<br />

road traveling to the PCA Parade in Spokane, WA. As<br />

the miles stack up for these Mavs, I hope each of you<br />

are also getting many “smiles per mile” throughout the<br />

month of <strong>July</strong>.<br />

I encourage you to Carpe Viam with your<br />

Porsche as often as you can this summer. And<br />

remember to share your road adventures via an<br />

article and photo submission to me at editor@<br />

mavpca.org.<br />
