Sprockets: Who Will Be

Sprockets: Who Will Be First? By David Robertson, Region President f I had any pull with the local dealerships I I would love to have my name on the list for one of the new 911 GT3’s that will begin delivery soon. Although I am sure that the subject would be very politely and skillfully changed if I asked for an allocation of one of these cars, many of our club members have gotten themselves onto the Porsche “nice” list over the years and will be receiving these new GT3’s in the coming months. I mention this because the great thing about our club is that as soon as our members start getting these cars you will see them at our events and you can get up close to experience them. You may not be able to drift a new GT3 around the track but you will find that the owners will be more than happy to show them off to you and answer questions you might have. This is true of all the great Porsches from rare classics to the newest limited production models and everything in between. Mavs and Mochas has become one of the best ways to simply enjoy looking at a big variety of Porsches and share yours as well. We usually have over 100 Porsches show up, and at our last event in June there was a larger variety of years, models, and I dare say condition, than I have ever seen! I really enjoy walking around and speaking to the owners about their cars. There is always a great story behind each car, no matter how classic or new the model is! I always learn something new and meet lots of new people at every Maverick event I attend. Between social events, driving opportunities and track time, there are way too many Maverick Region events each month to cover here so check out the calendar at mav.pca.org and subscribe to our many social media networks to stay informed. One item that I am looking forward to seeing very soon at our events and out on the road are the PCA specialty license plates that are now available for preorder. I can tell you that these are selling fast! You can order a You can now order your PCA logo license plates at http:// mav.pca.org/ go/plate random selection of letters and numbers or get a custom plate. I have already seen some of the confirmed custom orders and they are going to be good! Who will be the first to show up with one at an event? You can put in your preorder at http://mav. pca.org/go/plate. Once we get to 200 preorders they start going out and it looks like that will be soon! SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor 1235 William D. Tate Ave Grapevine, TX 76051 817-329-6995 If you haven’t been to one of our events recently take a look at the Maverick Region calendar and join us. We would love to meet you! MAV OF THE MONTH: Kurt Scaggs Our Mav of the Month is a relatively recent volunteer, but a passionate and longtime Porsche owner. Kurt Scaggs saw a request for assistance in creating our event ads in an issue of Slipstream last year and decided to offer his time and talent. Fortunately for our region, Kurt does graphic design work professionally, so his “real” work fits in beautifully with our club needs. Thank you, Kurt, and we appreciate seeing your eyecatching designs both in Slipstream and online! Kurt with son Wilson 2 July
