Sprockets: Maverick Region “Non-Workers”<br />

By David Robertson, Region President<br />

t Maverick events, we don’t always talk about<br />

A<br />

cars. Other things are certainly happening<br />

in people’s lives, and as I mention in almost<br />

every one of my columns, I enjoy getting to<br />

know the members in our club. The Mavericks I meet<br />

have a very diverse set of backgrounds and have ended<br />

up here in the DFW area from all over the world. They<br />

are passionate about their cars but also very passionate<br />

about their families, work, and community!<br />

Many of the Mavs I have met over the years have given<br />

themselves the title of “non-workers.” These are the<br />

many retired members that you see posting pictures on<br />

our social media, meeting with each other in the middle<br />

of the day, where, among many other activities, they are<br />

likely to be smoking cigars and discussing the cleverest<br />

custom license plates they can conjure up. Don’t get me<br />

wrong, I am very happy for these members, but while<br />

I am at work living vicariously through their postings,<br />

which also include descriptions of month-long road<br />

trips to visit various race tracks or famous stretches of<br />

road, I am sitting at a desk in my office. I suppose if I<br />

spent more time working and less time looking at posts<br />

of the “non-workers”’ exploits during the day, I might<br />

be able to retire just a bit earlier and join them! I enjoy<br />

my work and look forward to what the day will bring,<br />

but admittedly I would also like to meet other Maverick<br />

members on a whim some mid-morning during the<br />

week to throw in my opinion concerning the most genius<br />

combination of letters and numbers over donuts.<br />

The term we are discussing here is misleading in that<br />

these retired members tend to work just as hard now<br />

on their passions in life as they did in pre-retirement.<br />

Many of these Mavs also dedicate a great number of<br />

hours volunteering their time to the club. I just hope<br />

that, in my retirement days, I can be as active and passionate<br />

about the things in life that matter to me as are<br />

our members that affectionately refer to themselves as<br />

“non-workers”.<br />

One of our “non-workers,”<br />

Many of<br />

these Mavs<br />

also dedicate<br />

a great number<br />

of hours<br />

volunteering<br />

their time<br />

to the club<br />

Jim Hirsch, has done an<br />

amazing job as Editor of<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong>, putting together the<br />

publication you are reading<br />

now over the past few years.<br />

There is no reason for me to<br />

even list Jim’s contributions<br />

to the Maverick Region as<br />

they are very evident just by<br />

flipping through a <strong>Slipstream</strong><br />

or attending one of our events<br />

that he is involved in.<br />

SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor<br />

1235 William D. Tate Ave<br />

Grapevine, TX 76051<br />

817-329-6995<br />

Jim has decided at this point that he would like to<br />

contribute to the club in other areas and would like<br />

to turn over the reins of <strong>Slipstream</strong> to someone else.<br />

This would not be an overnight process, and Jim is<br />

very willing to work with the new Editor closely over a<br />

few months to train and ensure a seamless transition.<br />

Please contact Jim at editor@mavpca.org if you are interested<br />

in the position. It is our volunteers that make<br />

the Mavericks the best PCA region in the country!<br />

MAV OF THE MONTH: Andrew Barber<br />

Our Mav of the Month is one of the many relatively<br />

recent members of our Region who contribute actively<br />

to the benefit of our entire membership. Andrew<br />

Barber made the switch from the BMW M series world<br />

to our Porsche models in<br />

late 2015 with the acquisition<br />

of a Cayman GT4. Since<br />

joining our club, Andrew has<br />

participated in dozens of<br />

Region events and has<br />

graciously taken thousands<br />

of photos for your enjoyment<br />

in <strong>Slipstream</strong> and in our<br />

online sites. Thank you,<br />

Andrew, and we appreciate<br />

your willingness to share<br />

your keen photographic eye<br />

with us!<br />

Maverick Region 55th Anniversary<br />

By Jim Hirsch<br />

Images courtesy of the Author<br />

hile a 55th anniversary<br />

W<br />

may not have the cachet<br />

of a 50th or even<br />

a 25th anniversary, it’s<br />

an important enough milestone for<br />

our Maverick Region that it’s worth<br />

some special attention.<br />

This is particularly true for the<br />

over 600 new members we have<br />

welcomed into our Region in the<br />

past two years alone. If that sounds<br />

like an unrealistic number, pay a bit<br />

closer attention to our monthly new<br />

member list contained on page 9 in<br />

each issue. While our overall membership<br />

numbers may have grown<br />

more modestly, the number of new<br />

members we welcome each month<br />

has been averaging over 25 during<br />

that time.<br />

So, beginning this month, we will<br />

provide some historical perspective<br />

to our Region’s 55 years for both<br />

our new members who have joined<br />

us since the 50th anniversary as well<br />

as our continuing members from<br />

years before that.<br />

PCA National has already recognnized<br />

this special anniversary of the<br />

Maverick Region by providing us<br />

with a formal certificate of recognition<br />

seen below.<br />

In addition, PCA provided us<br />

with window decals specially designed<br />

with our 55th anniversary<br />

in mind. You can pick one of these<br />

decals up at many of our upcoming<br />

events. Simply look for Bill Orr, Bill<br />

Kruder, or me, and we should have<br />

a supply with us.<br />

In the coming months, you’ll<br />

get more information regarding<br />

upcoming club events where we<br />

will focus on celebrating this 55th<br />

anniversary. In fact, if you have any<br />

specific suggestions for activities,<br />

please send those directly to social@<br />

mavpca.org.<br />

In the meantime, you can become<br />

a Maverick Region Porschephile<br />

by taking a closer look at our<br />

club history on our web site at<br />

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations<br />

By Bill Kruder, Region Advertising Chair<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

ell, our chance meeting<br />

W<br />

happened last Thanksgiving<br />

weekend when<br />

we had an “impromptu”<br />

coffee gathering the Friday after. As<br />

usual, about 20 to 30 cars showed<br />

up, including Mike, who had just<br />

joined the club and had heard we<br />

gathered for coffee. Since then<br />

Mike has not only attended nearly<br />

every Mavs & Mocha, but has even<br />

become part of the official set-up<br />

crew, arriving early to ensure things<br />

are in place for the crowd.<br />

So here is the next in my series<br />

of “conversations” I would like to<br />

share with you . . .<br />

Mike O’Hare, member since<br />

2016, owner 2014 Cayman S<br />

Bill Kruder: So tell me a little bit<br />

about yourself.<br />

Mike O’Hare: Let’s see, I’ve<br />

been married to Lisa for 20 years<br />

and we have two kids: Ian, 15, and<br />

Erin, 13, and we live in McKinney.<br />

BK: How did you and Lisa meet?<br />

MO: We were both working at<br />

Food Town in Toledo (Ohio) and<br />

she actually asked me out.<br />

We dated for about three<br />

years, and after that first date<br />

we have actually never spent<br />

a day apart.<br />

years and lived all over the world<br />

from Belgium and Switzerland to<br />

Venezuela and Columbia.<br />

BK: Wow that must have been hard<br />

going to school and all!<br />

MO: Looking back I guess we<br />

didn’t know any different and<br />

we always went to International<br />

schools. I will say though it was certainly<br />

different going to grammar<br />

school in Europe and high school<br />

in Venezuela and actually graduating<br />

high school back in Toledo.<br />

BK: So how about college?<br />

MO: Kind of funny after all the<br />

moving as a kid, I stayed in Toledo<br />

going to the University of Toledo.<br />

Truthfully my dad said “you can<br />

go away to school or have a car.”<br />

I choose the car (laughing), so<br />

I stayed close to home, going to<br />

school and working.<br />

BK: And what was the car?<br />

MO: A black 1979 Monte Carlo;<br />

apparently I must have loved that<br />

car.<br />

BK: I understand you were in the<br />

grocery business?<br />

MO: I was. I had a part time job<br />

with Food Town from the age of 16<br />

and worked there for 18 years – ten<br />

in the stores and eight in the corporate<br />

offices. When I left I was a<br />

Business Development Manager.<br />

BK: So how did you end up in Dallas<br />

then?<br />

MO: That was a roundabout way<br />

as I was working for PepsiCo and<br />

they had moved us to Chicago in<br />

2007. Then in 2012, Dr Pepper<br />

recruited me and we moved down<br />

here.<br />

BK: Ok, so let’s talk cars. How did<br />

you get interested?<br />

MO: Well my dad, I guess you<br />

would say, had interest in them.<br />

When we lived in Switzerland he<br />

always wanted a Mercedes, so he<br />

bought a 280SE from the factory<br />

in Germany and drove it home to<br />

Switzerland.<br />

BK: And where did your interest in<br />

Porsche come from?<br />

MO: It goes back to third grade.<br />

We were living in Switzerland<br />

and my friend’s dad<br />

had a ‘74 Signal Orange 911;<br />

I guess it really had a lasting<br />

impact on me.<br />

BK: So you two call Toledo<br />

home then?<br />

Mike O: Well I call Toledo,<br />

Ohio home only because it’s<br />

the one place growing up we<br />

always moved back to.<br />

BK: Moved back to?<br />

MO: My dad was a systems<br />

analyst for Owens-Illinois;<br />

they do the glass, International<br />

Division, so we moved<br />

a lot but always came back to<br />

Toledo. We moved every few<br />

12 <strong>August</strong><br />

Mike and Bill..... Driving Friendships<br />

BK: So what finally made<br />

you get one?<br />

MO: My brother-in-law’s<br />

brother buys and sells highend<br />

import cars and when we<br />

visited he would always show<br />

me what he had in stock and<br />

I would always marvel at<br />

the Porsches. I mean it was<br />

always a dream, but I never<br />

figured I would be the guy to<br />

own one, and certainly not<br />

at this time in my life, married<br />

with two kids.

Mike and his 2014 Cayman S<br />

BK: And . . .<br />

MO: Well, after one of those<br />

visits, I really caught the bug to<br />

get one, so I started looking. I did<br />

about five or six months of research<br />

searching for the right car; I think<br />

three months of that was convincing<br />

Lisa we needed one (laughing).<br />

Like anyone needs one.<br />

BK: So you<br />

convinced her I<br />

see, and where<br />

did you find it?<br />

MO: I did.<br />

We found it<br />

with the help of<br />

my brother-inlaw<br />

and bought<br />

it from a private<br />

owner last<br />

October; it’s a<br />

2014 981, Platinum<br />

Silver Metallic<br />

over Black.<br />

BK: Now I must bring up May at<br />

Mayo’s. You are the bravest parking<br />

volunteer and you lived to talk about it.<br />

MO: Oh yes (smiling)! I know<br />

what you’re talking about. We were<br />

parking the cars, and in comes this<br />

non-Porsche. We wanted to keep<br />

the spaces to Porsches only, so I<br />

take off trotting to tell this guy to<br />

kindly move his car to the adjacent<br />

lot. We talk for a second, and he<br />

moves his car, and I come walking<br />

back and the guys are laughing. As<br />

I join them they shake my hand and<br />

say, “You just told Al Zim to move<br />

his car.” I didn’t know who he was,<br />

so the guys tell me he’s one of the<br />

air cooled “gods.” Well, as he comes<br />

walking thru the lot, I go over and<br />

thank him for moving and apologize.<br />

He couldn’t have been nicer<br />

and totally understood.<br />

So there you have it, if we had<br />

not had that “impromptu” coffee<br />

gathering, we might have never<br />

met and had the chance to drive<br />

friendships.<br />


Insuring your Porsche: Part 2 – Insuring Your Daily Driver<br />

By Justin Husman<br />

Photo courtesy of Jack Griffin<br />

f your Porsche is your primary mode of<br />

I<br />

transportation, you probably have it on your<br />

regular auto policy, which is great when it’s<br />

a new car, and easy to value, but not so good<br />

when it gets a few years old and value becomes a little<br />

more subjective, according to the “market”. Most standard<br />

policies are based on an “Actual Cash Value” form,<br />

which means that if you total your car, they are going<br />

to pay the actual cash value for your car at time of loss.<br />

There is a little wiggle room in that sort of coverage,<br />

but not much, as the adjuster has a computer program<br />

which tells him what that value is, much like blue book.<br />

There is some coverage that you should discuss with<br />

your agent to ensure you get maximum value in the<br />

event of a claim: OEM parts coverage, roadside assistance,<br />

and glass coverage. You are most likely to use the<br />

latter two, and they can save you pretty good money<br />

in the event of a nuisance claim (broken windshield<br />

or breakdown). If you have changed the car from its<br />

stock configuration, you should also consider “custom<br />

parts and accessories” coverage, to account for the extra<br />

value over ACV. This will also help you in the event<br />

of a claim where you are not at fault; if you insure the<br />

custom part, the other company will have to pay you for<br />

them as well. If you do not, the likelihood of being paid<br />

goes down quite a bit.<br />

If your daily driver is a very high value car (limited<br />

production, etc.) then your other option is “Stated<br />

Value” insurance; it’s a little different than the agreed<br />

value coverage I talked about last month, but it is a better<br />

option than ACV coverage, as it can mean a more<br />

appropriate payout at the time of loss. The key to insuring<br />

your car with a stated value is having a good agent;<br />

your insurance agent is your advocate, and will probably<br />

have to be involved with the adjuster to maximize<br />

your payout.<br />

One of the most important considerations when it<br />

comes to your daily driver insurance is your liability<br />

coverage. Obviously, everyone driving a Porsche is a<br />

millionaire (or at least people you have an accident<br />

with will think so) so you need to carry the highest liability<br />

limits you can get. If you carry high limits (and<br />

an umbrella policy) you will protect yourself from folks<br />

who want to turn a car accident into a lottery win.<br />

Obviously, some people drive their Porsches all<br />

week, and then onto the track on Saturday morning.<br />

Your regular policy is completely out when you drive<br />

on the track, but you do have options for covering your<br />

car while enjoying it on the track. I will discuss those<br />

options in my next column.<br />

If you have any specific insurance questions you<br />

think might be worthwhile for me to answer, please<br />

send them to me: justin@thephoenixinsurance.com.<br />

Autocross 5: Mesquite Memorial Stadium<br />

By Carey Spreen<br />

When we registered<br />

W<br />

online for the June 11<br />

edition of the Equipe<br />

Rapide autocross series,<br />

Sue and I couldn’t really tell how<br />

large the course was, based on the<br />

satellite photograph of Mesquite<br />

Memorial Stadium parking lot<br />

showing an overlay of the course.<br />

However, when we got there, it<br />

was obviously larger than we had<br />

thought, which is always a plus.<br />

Course maps are published in advance<br />

Something else we didn’t expect<br />

was to see Zone 5 Representative<br />

Jon Jones and his wife Joy (Cimarron<br />

Region President). They had<br />

attended the previous night’s Indy-<br />

Car race at Texas Motor Speedway<br />

and had decided to pay a visit to the<br />

autocross on their way back home.<br />

Regrettably, they weren’t in a suitable<br />

car for autocross, so they left<br />

before the timed runs began.<br />

Even more surprising was when<br />

we ran into PCA National Policy<br />

Committee Chair Bob Gutjahr<br />

(Chesapeake Region) and his son<br />

Josh. Turns out that Bob and Josh<br />

had also attended the IndyCar<br />

race, but they were at the autocross<br />

to drive Josh’s 2004 996 40th<br />

Anniversary coupe! Josh had just<br />

moved to Tyler and this was his first<br />

autocross. It just goes to show you<br />

that you never know who you’ll run<br />

into, even at an autocross!<br />

Anyway, Equipe Rapide ran its<br />

usual well-organized event, breaking<br />

the day up into three “heats”<br />

in which everyone is either driving,<br />

working the course, or resting.<br />

The Porsche classes worked first,<br />

ran second, and rested after that,<br />

which is, in my opinion, the ideal<br />

schedule. Working in the morning<br />

avoids the heat of the afternoon,<br />

plus you can watch and learn from<br />

the mistakes made by the drivers in<br />

the first run group. Even though<br />

everyone got six runs, they were<br />

quick (averaging about 40 seconds<br />

each), so each group took less than<br />

two hours to complete.<br />

A total of nine Porsche drivers<br />

competed, including autocross<br />

newcomer Carolle Liu in her 987<br />

Boxster. This was Carolle’s first<br />

autocross, but she assured us at the<br />

end of the day that it would not be<br />

her last!<br />

Remember father-son competitors<br />

Bob and Josh? As noted earlier,<br />

Photos by Bill Orr<br />

this was Josh’s first autocross, but<br />

Bob had a few under his belt. At<br />

the end of the day, age and experience<br />

beat out youth and enthusiasm,<br />

but just barely: Bob’s best time<br />

was a 39.962, just edging out Josh’s<br />

40.419. After getting our runs in,<br />

we all went to lunch while we waited<br />

for the last group to run.<br />

When all was said and done,<br />

five of us went home with trophies<br />

(okay, Equipe Rapide T-shirts), and<br />

a few of us went home with cash!<br />

Yes, ER pays for winning positions,<br />

especially if you are of the female<br />

persuasion, for whom the cash<br />

rewards are an incentive to bring<br />

more women into autocrossing.<br />

Carey Spreen had the second fastest<br />

Porsche time of the day<br />

By the time you read this, the<br />

July 30 event will have taken place,<br />

but there will be another one on<br />

<strong>August</strong> 20 at the Lone Star Park<br />

facility in Grand Prairie. If you have<br />

ever wanted to find (or maybe even<br />

exceed) the limits of your Porsche<br />

in a safe environment, mark <strong>August</strong><br />

20 on your calendar!<br />

Everything but the Kitchen Sink: Porsche Macan<br />

By Wendy Shoffit<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

hen James and I took<br />

W<br />

our trip to Germany<br />

a few years ago,<br />

we were fortunate<br />

enough to rent a Porsche Macan<br />

Diesel. They were relatively<br />

new and still much unknown to<br />

us. We both enjoyed it so much<br />

that it stuck in the back of our<br />

minds like . . . hmmmm . . . that<br />

was surprising! Then last year we<br />

drove a Macan S at the Porsche<br />

Driving experience in Atlanta<br />

on-track, and I’ll tell you we<br />

were SOLD! We just had to have<br />

one of our own. We ordered our Turbo in <strong>August</strong> 2016<br />

and took delivery of it in November. We have never<br />

looked back. We’ve had a lot of people ask us how we<br />

like it and even some of the less “racy” wives in the club<br />

have been eyeing it. I can tell you here and now: don’t<br />

hesitate if you’re wanting it and it fits in your budget.<br />

It’s phenomenal both as a street car and on track – really!<br />

It satisfies both sides of the coin. Lots of comfort<br />

for you and your passengers and plenty of cargo room<br />

in the back. I really want to get it out on track at MSR,<br />

but haven’t had the opportunity yet. Soon.<br />

Now for the tie-in to the title. When considering<br />

options on this beautiful machine, we went for it all.<br />

Even the salesman had to tell James, “Dude -- you really<br />

don’t need that.” So, what do these options do?<br />

Are they worth it? I’ll do my best to cover some. If you<br />

want really technical explanations, this is not the place.<br />

Google it or talk to a salesperson.<br />

Lots of options = lots of buttons in two consoles<br />

18 <strong>August</strong><br />

Macan Turbo (photo courtesy of Porsche AG)<br />

Adaptive Cruise Control. I really<br />

like this one. It’s got this sensor<br />

in front of the car that “sees” the<br />

car in front and will accurately<br />

change your speed accordingly.<br />

You can adjust how much space<br />

in front of your car you’re comfortable<br />

with, and the car will<br />

brake as needed and gradually<br />

accelerate back up when the<br />

lane is clear, but not go above<br />

your designated cruising speed.<br />

It’s super useful on the freeways<br />

where you just don’t need to<br />

worry about the gas pedal.<br />

Dynamic Light System Plus. It automatically turns on<br />

and off your high beams as you’re driving so you don’t<br />

accidentally blind the oncoming cars. I do a bit of driving<br />

to and from Arkansas and it involves a bunch of<br />

smaller, winding roads. It’s so nice to have that option<br />

at night so I can focus on driving instead of constantly<br />

manually flipping the brights on and off and on and<br />

off. This feature also literally changes the angle of your<br />

lights as you’re turning so it will maximize your visibility.<br />

Turning into my alley way and driveway at night<br />

makes this very useful.<br />

Park Assist with Surround View. If I could have this<br />

in every car I own, I would. Basically, you have several<br />

little cameras around your car, which it digitally stitches<br />

together. So, when you’re backing up, or if it senses<br />

any obstruction around you, it displays what looks like<br />

a bird’s eye view of your car and everything around it.<br />

When I’m pulling into my driveway from the alley, I can<br />

see exactly where my tires are, so as to avoid running<br />

over the little patch of grass, and so that I know exactly<br />

where in the garage to stop. Everywhere else I park, it<br />

makes me look like a genius. No more guessing where<br />

the corners are because I can SEE them. It also shows<br />

you on the screen graphically (yellow to red indicators<br />

in the area) when you’re getting close to hitting something<br />

and has audible tones to make SURE you know it.<br />

Sometimes that gets a bit annoying when you’re just at<br />

a red light and it’s reminding you of the dangerous car<br />

stopped five feet in front of you.<br />

Lane Assist. This one is a little harder to get used to,<br />

but once you do it’s pretty cool. It uses the front-facing<br />

camera to see where the painted lines are on the road.<br />

When you have this button on, it will help remind you<br />

via this digital “rumble strip” sound that you’re crossing<br />

it and will even give you a gentle correction on the<br />

steering wheel to help you stay the course. In town it

Park Assist with Surround View is like magic<br />

feels a bit like it’s gently fighting you all the time, but<br />

on the freeways it’s not so bad when you might lose<br />

focus while changing the radio station or whatever. If<br />

you completely let go of the wheel and let it drive for<br />

you, it reminds you that it’s not there to drive for you.<br />

Don’t ask me how I know.<br />

said, I can’t tell you how many times I used it this past<br />

winter. My hands get really cold and when they’re cold,<br />

the rest of my body feels cold. This works quickly and I<br />

don’t want to let go of the wheel!<br />

Porsche Connect Plus. Not only is this a navigation system,<br />

but it also has Apple Car Play. It helps integrate<br />

your iPhone into your sound system. It will read your<br />

emails aloud (often with great comical value) and help<br />

make hands-free phone calls utilizing your contact list<br />

and all. I love being able to connect to my music everywhere<br />

I go. It also incorporates Google Streets where<br />

you can literally look up the address you’re going to<br />

and SEE a photo of the place. It does a lot of other<br />

things that we’re still learning about . . . like giving<br />

you flight information, locating the nearest gas station<br />

showing prices for Premium gas, and much more! Of<br />

course, a lot of this only works when you pay for the<br />

internet connection ($10 per month through AT&T<br />

currently). It’s worth a look, though, if that rings your<br />

bell like it does ours.<br />

There are other options to be had, like a towing<br />

package, air suspension, panoramic sun roof (that goes<br />

all the way to the back seat), and roof rails for extra<br />

cargo space on top, upgraded wheels, and the like, but<br />

those are no surprise. If you want them, you already<br />

know you do. One last thing I wanted to mention about<br />

the Macan that I found very useful is the rear liftgate<br />

can be automatically set for the height you want. I always<br />

had to be careful with the Cayenne in the garage<br />

because the back opened up just a little too high for<br />

our garage door. I now never have to worry about it getting<br />

scratched or replacing the nameplate again! Oops.<br />

Video cameras located below the side mirrors too<br />

Heated/Cooled Seats. I don’t really need to extoll the<br />

virtues of heated seats in the winter, but these cooled<br />

seats work exceptionally well. Coming home from the<br />

gym it’s especially nice to have when you just can’t seem<br />

to get fully cool. It works quickly, quietly, and doesn’t<br />

make you feel like you just wet yourself like some others<br />

do. I will say one thing about heated seats that those<br />

of you who don’t have them don’t know: they work<br />

GREAT for a lower back ache! They also offer heated<br />

seats in the back for the extra comfort of your guests.<br />

Sunblinds are also available for the comfort of your<br />

back seat guests, but don’t really deserve their own<br />

paragraph. They’re cool to have and are virtually invisible<br />

when they’re retracted and not in use.<br />

Heated Steering Wheel. Yes, I know I live in Texas where<br />

it’s usually considered a warmer climate. That being<br />

And if Texas had snow, the Macan would handle it<br />

All in all this is truly a phenomenal vehicle! Don’t<br />

hesitate to go to your local dealership and ask for a test<br />

drive. For you women out there who just aren’t sure,<br />

I’m happy to answer any questions in a non-technical<br />

way. I’m always up for a lunch and I can bring it so you<br />

can see it a pressure free environment. Mine isn’t for<br />

sale and we won’t be discussing payment options. Of<br />

course, if everyone I’ve recommended this vehicle to<br />

buys one, I should seriously get a commission!<br />


Off-Road Adventures: Northwest OHV Park<br />

By Carey Spreen and Jeff Sebert<br />

Photo by Sue Crimm<br />

id you know that 64% of all Porsches sold<br />

D<br />

in 2016 were SUVs? Depending on where<br />

you live in the Maverick Region, you probably<br />

see at least one Cayenne or Macan every<br />

time you’re on the road, assuming you don’t own<br />

one yourself. Do you ever wonder if the owners and<br />

drivers of those Porsche SUVs actually understand how<br />

capable they are when they don’t have pavement underneath<br />

them? So did some of us in Maverick Region,<br />

so we decided to plan an introductory off-road event in<br />

September for Porsche SUV owners and their friends<br />

or families. It’s fun for everyone.<br />

In 2011, the city of Bridgeport, TX, opened the Northwest<br />

Off-Highway Vehicle Park, for use by SUVs, Jeeps,<br />

ATVs, and motorcycles (http://www.cityofbridgeport.<br />

net/322/Northwest-OHV-Park). Bridgeport is about<br />

15 miles west of Decatur on US 380, and less than an<br />

hour’s drive from Ft. Worth, and a little over an hour<br />

from Dallas. A group of us visited this park a couple of<br />

times in a Cayenne and a Macan Turbo, and found several<br />

trails suitable for use by stock, unmodified SUVs.<br />

On Saturday, September 30, Maverick Region will<br />

host our inaugural Off-Road Adventure at this park.<br />

The trails chosen will give you a feel for how well-suited<br />

your SUV is for off-roading, and perhaps will give you<br />

the confidence to try some trail exploring yourself.<br />

Of course, there is always an element of risk, just as<br />

when you put your car on track for a Drivers’ Education<br />

event, compete in an autocross, enter a rally, or<br />

even participate in a tour. However, we have chosen the<br />

trails with safety in mind above all, as well as to minimize<br />

the danger of damage to your vehicle, but we still<br />

want to have fun too! We will have spotters available,<br />

where appropriate, to help guide your SUV through<br />

the “course” we have laid out. The park has a covered<br />

pavilion which we will use for a lunch break midway<br />

through the event, with lunch provided!<br />

In 2014, PCA published the Event Guidelines for<br />

Off Road Tours, which is available on the PCA website<br />

at https://www.pca.org/forms-documents. This document<br />

describes how off-road events should be planned<br />

and executed. Maverick Region will follow these guidelines,<br />

and we encourage you to familiarize yourself with<br />

them as well.<br />

These guidelines call for a tech inspection and a drivers’<br />

meeting, just like our other events. Tech inspection<br />

will consist of checking for suitable tires, ground clearance,<br />

and exhaust system that meets local ordinances.<br />

AWD or 4WD vehicles are the recommended vehicles,<br />

although we will consider others on a case-by-case basis.<br />

Any vehicle with a raised or “lifted” suspension must be<br />

pre-approved by the Regional Safety Chair, and vehicles<br />

must have full fenders, a US Forest Service-approved<br />

exhaust system, and must meet all local sound control<br />

ordinances.<br />

The drivers’ meeting will cover the basic principles<br />

of off-road driving, including an explanation of approach<br />

and departure angles, and of wheel and tire<br />

placement to maximize ground clearance. In particular,<br />

we welcome anyone with previous off-road experience<br />

to act as a coach for this event!<br />

Please check the Maverick website, mav.pca.org, for<br />

updates on this event. If you have any questions, please<br />

email Carey Spreen at cspreen3000@gmail.com, or Jeff<br />

Sebert at jeff@av-usa.net. We hope to see you on September<br />

30!<br />

This is the view<br />

of a typical<br />

route you’ll<br />

encounter with<br />

your Cayenne<br />

or Macan<br />

during this event<br />

Detailing Tips: Traditional Wax vs Synthetic Polymers<br />

By Tony “Concorso”<br />

Image courtesy of the Author<br />

ast time we covered the basics of prep work<br />

L<br />

with the Surface Prep Mitt vs Clay Bar comparison,<br />

so this month we’ll take a look at<br />

the merit of the various finish layer products<br />

available, such as waxes and sealants. Almost all<br />

of these products are readily available at the auto parts<br />

and discount stores, as well as online. There are far too<br />

many products to list individually, so we’ll refer to each<br />

general category in this comparison: traditional wax or<br />

the newer synthetic polymer/sealant formulations.<br />

A little product history is in order here. Waxes have<br />

a long history of use in protecting automotive (and<br />

other) finishes, while synthetic polymer/sealers came<br />

along as a result of continued desire for improvement<br />

in application and removal of products (Ed. Note: IBM<br />

received the initial patent for a “synthetic wax substitute”<br />

on April 14, 1964). In addition, we always want<br />

our finishes to be deeper or wetter looking along with<br />

protection lasting as long as possible. Waxes of all types<br />

can offer up an absolutely beautiful finish, but contrary<br />

to our common thinking, waxes are actually very soft<br />

layers of protection.<br />

Traditional wax has gorgeous clarity and depth, but<br />

scratches every time you wipe off your vehicle with<br />

microfiber towels and your favorite instant detailer.<br />

Almost all waxes have some level of carnauba content,<br />

from a fraction of one percent to 20% or higher, and<br />

can range in price from $6.00 a can up to several thousand<br />

dollars per can. The percentage of carnauba content<br />

noted on the container refers to the purity of the<br />

carnauba used, not the percentage of volume of the<br />

can. Important determining factors in the longevity of<br />

the product include the amount of proper prep taken<br />

and the care the car gets between waxings, as well as<br />

where it is kept. In the end, most carnauba-based products<br />

last about 60 - 90 days.<br />

So, along come the synthetic polymer-based products<br />

to add to the comparisons. Polymer products are a<br />

man-made attempt to improve upon nature, with some<br />

success I might add. These products bring multiple<br />

advancements in molecular structure over waxes to<br />

boost the performance qualities. The end result is a<br />

harder-than-wax protective layer that can last up to six<br />

months, although “harder-than-wax” is a relative term.<br />

Polymer/sealers are still very soft and will also scratch<br />

when washed and wiped.<br />

Another big improvement over wax is the ease of application<br />

and removal. We’ve all suffered through the<br />

frustration of wax buffing and polishing. Most of the<br />

synthetic products wipe off easily.<br />

No matter which product you choose, the key to a<br />

great result is the prep work prior to application. Always<br />

make sure the surface is residue-free and squeaky clean<br />

before applying any products. During the application<br />

process, work in 2 x 2 foot sections and the end result<br />

will be a more uniform shine and consistent removal.<br />

A pro note here: do your best to get the car dry in<br />

all the cracks, crevices, mirrors, emblems, etc. A forced<br />

air dryer such as the Metrovac Master Blaster is a great<br />

help here. Just a few drops of water added to many of<br />

these products during application can make them exponentially<br />

harder to remove. Trust me.<br />

After the car is completely covered in product we<br />

find another advantage to the synthetic products. Most<br />

of the polymer products can be removed as soon as applied<br />

if desired, and as mentioned, wipe off easily. The<br />

waxes can take 20 minutes or more to dry out enough<br />

to remove. Humidity makes the biggest difference in<br />

cure time.<br />

Make sure you have a fresh, clean supply of microfiber<br />

towels on hand to remove either type of product<br />

and hand buff the car. New or very clean microfiber<br />

towels are essential. Work your way from the top down,<br />

turning your microfiber towel frequently. When your<br />

towel starts to leave little dust residue, change to a<br />

clean microfiber and carry on. You can easily use 10<br />

microfiber towels or more in a single wax session. Keep<br />

a little instant detailing spray handy, as it can help in<br />

the removal of some of the more stubborn wax spots.<br />

Again, the synthetic polymer products distinguish<br />

themselves at this stage with ease of removal.<br />

Here’s a sidebar about product removal. Be patient!<br />

Work over the car slowly and review your work from<br />

many angles. Step back from the car 10 to 20 feet and<br />

survey your work. Go through the entire process repeatedly.<br />

The more time you spend walking around the<br />

car and spotting areas that need additional buffing, the<br />

better the results will be. If you have a little time the<br />

next day, repeat the walk around and you’ll probably<br />

still find some stray wax or residue. Many times, products<br />

continue to cure overnight and may also pick up<br />

a little moisture and by doing so, expose small areas<br />

easily overlooked.<br />

As for maintenance, treat both types of products<br />

similarly. Hand wash every couple of weeks and remove<br />

dust with an instant detailer product regularly.<br />

In the next detailing article, I’ll address<br />

what it takes to properly prepare the<br />

paint surface for any finish product, plus<br />

discuss ceramic coatings. Until then . . .<br />

“Polish On!”.<br />

Five Speed Chatter: Is it a Battle or a Commute? (Part 2)<br />

By Ash Seidl-Staley<br />

elcome back, Mavs! There isn’t much space<br />

W<br />

this month for an introduction, so let’s just<br />

dive right in and talk about wolf packs.<br />

The Texas Driver’s handbook defines a<br />

wolf pack as “a group of vehicles traveling together<br />

in a bunch on an expressway.” We have all seen them,<br />

been stuck in them, and possibly even initiated a few<br />

of them, but how are they actually formed? The way I<br />

see it, a wolf pack can form on a highway by many different<br />

means, but two causes are by far the most prevalent.<br />

First, there is the wolf pack that is created at the<br />

spot where each frontage road entrance ramp enters<br />

a highway. I see this type transpire most frequently on<br />

Highway 80. Starting at around 5:45 am, multiple vehicles<br />

leaving Forney’s four exits enter the highway at<br />

the same time. Any driver unfortunately caught in the<br />

right lane on this section of road is forced to move over<br />

or slow down. The reduced speeds and lane crowding<br />

start the car stacking process, sending wolf packs onto<br />

the roadways in waves. Usually, by the time I reach the<br />

East Fork Road exit, I am no longer in cruise control,<br />

and the current of wolf packs has turned into full on<br />

vehicular congestion.<br />

The other type of wolf pack forms thanks to the<br />

actions of a slowpoke. A slowpoke is the driver of a<br />

semi-truck, a van, a pick-up truck, or just your average<br />

Toyota Camry, who decides to pass someone but<br />

does so going 1-2 miles an hour faster than the person<br />

they are attempting to pass. Before the snail passes the<br />

other snail, a long line of frustrated drivers, usually<br />

with you directly in the middle, congests the left lane.<br />

Oftentimes, the slowpoke is utilizing his cruise control<br />

setting, but has set it at a speed that is slower than he<br />

should use in the left lane. A slowpoke can also just drive<br />

slowly by nature. As you might have guessed from your<br />

own personal experience, for whatever reason many<br />

slowpokes refuse to exit the left lane, and force other<br />

drivers to perilously pass them on the right. States like<br />

Indiana, New Jersey, Tennessee, Florida, and Georgia<br />

have implemented legislation against slowpoke drivers.<br />

Fines upward of $250 greet offenders in these states,<br />

but as of now there is no defense against a slowpoke<br />

driver in Texas.<br />

Unfortunately for many DFW drivers our next term<br />

is just as familiar and as frustrating as the slowpoke. I<br />

call them wanderers, but you might know them as the<br />

swervers, or the seemingly inebriated. No matter the<br />

time of day, or location, I see this driver bouncing from<br />

one set of a lane’s dotted lines to the other. Many wander<br />

into my lane right before I attempt to pass them.<br />

This not only forces me to slam on the brakes, but garners<br />

a honk from my horn and a few unsavory nouns<br />

from my mouth. Nine thousand times out of ten, the<br />

swerving driver is preoccupied with a smartphone, but<br />

there are a few instances where I believe sleep deprivation,<br />

chemical inebriation, or just plain negligence is<br />

the key factor to the bad driving.<br />

On September 1, <strong>2017</strong>, the state of Texas will implement<br />

HB 62. This bill, which was recently signed by<br />

Governor Gregg Abbott, finally attempts to fight back<br />

against distracted drivers who are texting and driving.<br />

Close to five hundred deaths have been attributed to<br />

this form of distracted driving, and so have more than<br />

one hundred thousand traffic accidents. And those are<br />

just the figures for Texas in 2015! Personally, I can’t<br />

stand texting and driving. I don’t condone it, or practice<br />

it—not even at stop lights, but there are many<br />

people who don’t see a problem with it.<br />

Now HB 62 is not the answer to all distracted driving<br />

problems, and as it stands now, the bill isn’t even set<br />

in stone. Governor Abbott has called a special legislative<br />

session for mid-July. Many of the bill’s provisions<br />

and enforcement guidelines are currently cloudy and<br />

unclear. They could very well be altered this session<br />

to make implementation of the law easier. Currently<br />

though, talking while driving and pulling up google<br />

maps to find out where you are going will still be ok<br />

under HB 62, but law enforcement officers will be able<br />

to pull you over for texting, emailing, surfing the internet,<br />

or posting on your favorite social media platform.<br />

Fines will range from $20- $100 for each violation. But<br />

how law enforcement will determine if a person was<br />

texting or emailing is blurred. It will be up to each law<br />

enforcement agency to determine how and when they<br />

will enforce the bill, leaving many drivers wondering<br />

how it will affect their driving habits for the years to<br />

come.<br />

Well Mavs, that concludes my little list of terrible<br />

driving habits that plague DFW’s roadways. I would like<br />

to take the time to say that, although my prose here<br />

might imply or even reflect the actions of an aggressive<br />

and rage filled driver, they are just for comic relief.<br />

Now I’m not saying that the expletives don’t fly when a<br />

slowpoke pulls out in front of me, they do. But what I<br />

am saying is that I don’t cause accidents, or pull over,<br />

brandish a baseball bat, and bash in windshields. I’ve<br />

seen footage on YouTube that makes my waving hands<br />

look like child’s play. It can be a dangerous world out<br />

there. But no matter what your driving temperament is<br />

you can always stay safe on DFW’s roads by continuing<br />

to be calm, by trying to be courteous to other drivers,<br />

and by always remaining constantly aware of your surroundings.<br />

Until next time, stay sharp, and battle on<br />

Mavs!<br />

The Tub Club: Tour to Blueberry Hill Farms<br />

By Barbara Madsen<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

y better half, Doug Madsen, organized a scenic<br />

drive to Blueberry Hill Farms in Edom.<br />

M<br />

Carefully prepared directions were passed<br />

out to the people attending, so everyone<br />

knew the route before beginning the tour.<br />

For the most part, we traveled country roads flanked<br />

by colorful wildflowers on each side. Even many of the<br />

surrounding fields were filled with yellow flowers, adding<br />

to the beauty of the drive. We passed through numerous<br />

ranches with their livestock calmly munching<br />

on the grass. A few of the ranches had Texas longhorn<br />

cattle, and I had to wonder<br />

how they managed to<br />

navigate the terrain with<br />

such immense horns. If I<br />

were one of those cows,<br />

my neck would have<br />

been tired and sore from<br />

holding up the weight of<br />

those gigantic horns!<br />

Our destination not<br />

only had endless fields<br />

filled with blueberry and<br />

blackberry plants; it also<br />

Who else would be peeking<br />

out but Linda Bambina?<br />

had a store containing a variety of delectable delights.<br />

Besides the expected items such as fresh pies and hot<br />

mango salsa, there were many unique items: blueberry<br />

mustard, cherry barbecue sauce, and blueberry nut<br />

honey butter. Of course, we were also able to purchase<br />

fresh blueberries and blackberries. One did not need<br />

to walk away hungry from such a place as this.<br />

Thank you, Doug, for a fun and colorful drive<br />

through East Texas. The blueberry yogurt added just<br />

the right touch to our experience that day.<br />

QR Codes: A Quick Way to Access Online Maverick Content<br />

By Landon Stogner<br />

Image courtesy of the Author<br />

ave you ever wondered what those crazy<br />

H<br />

pixelated pictures are that you see popping<br />

up in magazines and on product packaging?<br />

Did you think that they might be some<br />

inkblot test you must pass so you’re not committed to<br />

the Looney Bin, or maybe, if you stared long enough a<br />

picture would jump into focus? Well the fact is they are<br />

called Quick Response Codes, or QR Codes for short.<br />

QR Codes are a type of two-dimensional barcode<br />

that originally got their start in the mid-90’s in the<br />

automotive industry. They were first used in Japan to<br />

track the vehicles during their different manufacturing<br />

stages of the assembly line. This was done because they<br />

are machine readable optical labels that contains information<br />

about the item of which was attached. These<br />

codes are standardized into four different modes to<br />

help efficiently store data. This is all done by using<br />

numbers, letters, binary and kanji. Kanji is a Japanese<br />

term referring to logographic.<br />

Having the code’s ability of being read at fast speeds<br />

is what helped gain their popular use outside of the<br />

automotive world. The QR codes have greater data<br />

storage than the normal UPC barcodes we see so often.<br />

The QR codes can hold item identification, marketing,<br />

product information, or even redirect you to a website.<br />

Strangely enough this is all done by black squares<br />

arranged in a square grid on a white background. This<br />

pattern allows for imaging devices such as cameras to<br />

read, process, and extract the data so it can presented.<br />

Over the past 20 years or so, many changes have<br />

taken place on the standards used and how the data<br />

is encoded. Thanks to these changes, any person with<br />

an everyday smartphone can now have the power to<br />

scan and read these QR Codes. Just tap on over to your<br />

device’s App Store, search for “QR Code Scanner”, and<br />

choose one of the many free apps to download. I’m<br />

currently using an App called QR Code Reader by Scan.<br />

In the future we would like to start using QR codes<br />

more to benefit us within the<br />

club. We can use them for voting<br />

at People’s Choice Concours,<br />

RVSP’ing to social events, and<br />

registering for Tour & Rally<br />

Drives. Our options are almost<br />

limitless. Give this one a try!<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

shared some background information in<br />

I<br />

the June issue on the team effort that gets<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> to your mailbox each month. I<br />

want to continue that discussion this month<br />

and then I’ll get back to my favorite Carpe Viam topics<br />

in future columns.<br />

Each team needs someone to lead and coordinate<br />

the efforts to reach a successful conclusion. In the<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> world, that task falls to the role of Managing<br />

Editor. There is a deadline to make certain our<br />

members receive the current issue in a timely basis<br />

(usually during the first week of the month).<br />

Our Maverick Region has been fortunate to have a<br />

number of volunteers over the years who have filled the<br />

Managing Editor role and guided the team’s efforts.<br />

Recent editors have included Carey Spreen, Richard<br />

Bradley, Jan (Mayo) Michel, Matt Platts, and Wendy<br />

Shoffit. As I look back over past issues of <strong>Slipstream</strong><br />

available online, this group did an amazing<br />

job producing the magazine each month.<br />

Notably, Wendy Shoffit and Jan Michel had<br />

multiple turns as the Managing Editor. I mention<br />

these two in particular because they have<br />

been so helpful to me in proof<br />

reading each issue and providing<br />

suggestions that only the keenest<br />

eyes can catch. Jan lives in Los<br />

Alamos now but still is a Maverick<br />

member who reads each issue. I<br />

had the good fortune of meeting<br />

her this past month while in Santa<br />

Fe for Fiesta New Mexico and<br />

thanking her personally. As you<br />

can probably tell, the photo to the left is of Jan and I.<br />

I assumed the role of Managing Editor officially in<br />

May 2015, after interning with Carey for six months<br />

and earning his trust. Other than Wendy and Jan, three<br />

years is about the typical lifespan of a <strong>Slipstream</strong> Managing<br />

Editor, so my time in the driver’s seat is about over.<br />

I’m asking now that you consider whether you have<br />

the interest and time to volunteer and contribute<br />

to your Maverick Region in this role of Managing<br />

Editor. If so, send me an email at editor@<br />

mavpca.org and I’ll be happy to discuss more<br />

specifics about the software in use and the work<br />

involved each month.<br />
