Sprockets: New Additions<br />

By David Robertson, Region President<br />

ast month I gave an update of some of the<br />

L<br />

items that we have worked on so far this<br />

year. We are very proud of what has been<br />

accomplished to date, but we still have a lot<br />

of work to do!<br />

This is an exciting time to be a Maverick! We are<br />

adding new events, trying new things, testing ideas, and<br />

constantly evaluating what our members are asking us<br />

for. To further these efforts I have created a new board<br />

position of Marketing Chair and have appointed Bill<br />

Orr, our resident marketing guru, to chair that position.<br />

Bill has done an unbelievable job of creating ways<br />

to market our club to new and existing members. With<br />

a more official role, Bill has some ideas to implement<br />

that will take our marketing program to the next level.<br />

One of our initiatives for the remainder of <strong>2017</strong><br />

and into 2018 is to create a great Concours d’Elegance<br />

program. I have appointed Mike Mahoney to the position<br />

of Concours Chair and he will be in charge of this<br />

undertaking. Mike has some great ideas and lots of enthusiasm<br />

for this role. Our Concours events will range<br />

from more traditional judging programs to less formal<br />

events like People’s Choice. Mike will not be alone in<br />

his new role. He is working with many of our Maverick<br />

members that have been our club experts in Concours<br />

historically, both on the local and national level, and<br />

going back almost as long as our region has been in<br />

existence. As always, volunteers will be needed!<br />

We are getting some good ideas for ways we can effectively<br />

distribute both our dollars and our human<br />

capital to charities we support. One charity that we<br />

have supported over the years is the Huffaker-Hughes<br />

Hope House. We support the Hope Shelter through<br />

cash donations, but they also have a need for specific<br />

items on an as needed basis such as toiletries, towels,<br />

bedsheets, etc. You will see collection requests for some<br />

of these specific items from time to time, coinciding<br />

with some of our events. We are all very fortunate to be<br />

members of this club and charity is one area where we<br />

can all participate!<br />

This is the 55th year for the Maverick Region and<br />

we are laying the groundwork to move successfully into<br />

the future. Attracting new members is very important,<br />

but participation and inclusion is what keeps everyone<br />

in the club. All of our members have a place in the Maverick<br />

Region PCA. Whether you a 50+ year member<br />

and will never touch a PDK, or you are a lucky owner of<br />

a Porsche in your 20s looking forward to an all-electric<br />

911, you are a big part of our club!<br />

that you feel needs my attention, do not keep it to yourself!<br />

MAVS OF THE MONTH: Debi Gibson & Bill Kruder<br />

This month I would like to recognize Co-Mavs of the<br />

Month Debi Gibson and Bill Kruder. Bill and Debi have<br />

jumped in with both feet to make the Maverick Region<br />

a notch better in many areas that many of our members<br />

may not even realize. Bill has been the key figure in<br />

the huge success of Mavs and Mochas and Debi is<br />

always creating a new tweak each time to make each<br />

of the events better than<br />

the last one. Bill is also<br />

consistently working<br />

behind the scenes with<br />

our advertisers and has<br />

established relationships<br />

with the local dealerships<br />

greatly improving those<br />

partnerships. Debi has<br />

also made contributions<br />

to <strong>Slipstream</strong> and is<br />

helping to plan our<br />

upcoming Founders’<br />

Day celebration.<br />

Congratulations Debi and Bill, thanks for everything<br />

you do, and enjoy your Silver Fox gift certificate!<br />

Maverick Region 55th Anniversary<br />

By Jim Hirsch<br />

Anniversary graphics by Kurt Scaggs<br />

W<br />

6 <strong>October</strong><br />

here were you 55 years ago? I asked that<br />

question in last month’s issue and here<br />

are three responses I received for your trip<br />

down memory lane - looking back to 1962.<br />

Linda Bambina<br />

I turned 15 the summer of ’62. At that time in Texas,<br />

you could get your learner’s permit at 14 and driver’s<br />

license at 15. I think I started practicing driving (in our<br />

oversized semi-circle driveway) when I was probably 12.<br />

I loved cars. I loved driving the long, long roads of West<br />

Texas. I practiced most of my early driving in a borrowed<br />

Ford Falcon with a column shift.<br />

I had a BLAST going from 1st to 2nd gear….! YES!<br />

I remember pushing that gear shift knob up toward the<br />

windshield at 15 miles an hour! All Right!<br />

Then slam on the brakes and STOP because I was at the<br />

end of the driveway!<br />

When I finally had my birthday, I took my driving<br />

test in my family’s ’56 Cadillac. That was like driving<br />

a tank! Parallel parking was so hard in that car! Then<br />

my dad bought me my OWN CAR. Long story associated<br />

with this choice, but I got a 1927 Model T Ford.<br />

The planetary gears and throttle and spark advance<br />

and starter were ALL totally different than either of<br />

the above-named vehicles, but I was thrilled beyond<br />

description.<br />

That thrill was not truly duplicated until my (then)<br />

boyfriend, Alan Bambina, pulled into a huge empty<br />

parking lot and invited me to drive his 1975 911 S.<br />

OMG. Being a passenger is nothing compared to being<br />

the driver of such a piece of engineering. Talk about a<br />

“BLAST” going from gear to gear!<br />

Carey Spreen<br />

I was still a wee lad in 1962, but that was my first<br />

experience with an odd little rear-engined German car.<br />

No, not a Porsche or VW – even smaller: a BMW Isetta.<br />

A neighbor had one that he used to drive around the<br />

neighborhood, and my dad and I dropped by one afternoon<br />

to check it out. My mouth dropped open in<br />

amazement when he pulled the whole front of the car<br />

open to reveal the plain padded<br />

bench seat inside. The<br />

steering wheel swung up out<br />

of the way to allow us to get<br />

inside, and as he closed the<br />

door, we were fully enclosed<br />

in a tiny bubble car.<br />

He started it up and putted<br />

around the block, returning<br />

to his driveway in just a<br />

minute or so, but I was hooked! I knew at that moment<br />

that I was going to have to have a little tiny car like that<br />

someday. As it turned out, my first car wasn’t quite that<br />

small (a 1974 VW Thing), but it put me on the path<br />

that eventually led me to Porsches, PCA, and Maverick<br />

Region. Happy 55th Anniversary!<br />

Charlie Davis<br />

I was in the army in 1962 (more to come in a future<br />

story involving rolling 911s at Rattlesnake Raceway)!<br />

To register for a Maverick Region PCA Drivers’ Education<br />

(DE) event, you first log on to the www.clubregistration.net<br />

website. You will have to create an account<br />

and credentials, and then you can search for the event.<br />

You can find our events by clicking on the “Search<br />

for Events” menu, then “Find Events.” Complete the<br />

form with the “By Category” option.<br />

Select the event, then complete the questionnaire<br />

form. You will have the ability to preregister for lunch,<br />

which is catered at the track, and some events also have<br />

an optional dinner. You will be asked to provide a car<br />

number, or one will be assigned for you. If you are sharing<br />

a Porsche (or other car) for the event with another<br />

driver, please also provide this information so we can<br />

place you on the same team.<br />

After you register, you will receive a confirmation<br />

email stating that you have been accepted. The acceptance<br />

will indicate you are in the green group and you<br />

are assigned a unique car number. You can make the<br />

numbers for your car using painter’s tape of a contrasting<br />

color to that of your car. For example, blue on black<br />

is not acceptable. The numbers need to be at least 8<br />

inches tall and must be placed on both doors and the<br />

front hood.<br />

Readiness activities – Two weeks prior to the event<br />

There are several important email attachments that<br />

require action prior to the event.<br />

Technical inspection form. The tech inspection<br />

form is certification that your vehicle has passed the<br />

safety inspection criteria required for track activity. An<br />

authorized dealer or Club-approved mechanic must<br />

fill out the form and sign it, indicating that your car is<br />

ready for the event. You also must initial and sign the<br />

form. The tech form must be turned in during registration<br />

on the day of the event.<br />

When on track, you are required to wear a safety helmet<br />

with a Snell 2010 or 2015 approval sticker. Not all<br />

helmets meet this requirement, so be sure to check the<br />

sticker inside or on the back of the helmet. Note that<br />

a Snell 2010 helmet will only be legal for PCA events<br />

until 2020, so if you are going to purchase a helmet,<br />

a Snell 2015 would be a better choice. A limited number<br />

of approved helmets are available to rent from the<br />

track facility for a fee, so if you plan to do so, be sure to<br />

reserve this option early with the track directly.<br />

Emergency contact form. This form is<br />

required if you have not already entered<br />

this information during pre-registration<br />

on the clubregistration.net website.<br />

DE handbook. A detailed document<br />

containing the rules and regulations for<br />

a drivers’ education event, for review before the event,<br />

and for reference if there is a question during an event.<br />

You do not need to bring a printed copy with you.<br />

The night before the event<br />

Prepare your car for the track by ensuring that the<br />

gas tank is full and that you have your helmet and<br />

forms. A clean car is a safe car, so be sure especially to<br />

clean the windows. Hydrate yourself with water and/or<br />

sports drink the few days prior to the event. The night<br />

before the event, please have a good nutritious dinner<br />

and get a good night sleep. Watch this column next<br />

month for Part 2 – At the Track.<br />

Editor’s note: This article was first published in the<br />

February 2013 issue of <strong>Slipstream</strong>. It contains a lot of useful<br />

information for DE first-timers, so we thought it was time to<br />

run it again!<br />

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations<br />

By Debi Gibson<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

eard the lyric “It’s a<br />

H<br />

Small World After All?”<br />

Well I learned in this<br />

month’s interview, it<br />

is indeed! In September of 2016,<br />

Bill Kruder introduced you to PCA<br />

member Bob Hagestad, owner of<br />

the Hagestad Porsche/Audi Dealership<br />

in Denver, Colorado back in<br />

the ‘70s and ‘80s. Bob and Bill became<br />

immediate friends and when a<br />

’71 914 popped up on Ebay for sale<br />

last fall complete with documents<br />

from Hagestad Porsche. Well there<br />

was an instant connection (and a<br />

purchase I might add)! Who would<br />

have thought that, in the Maverick<br />

Region, we would discover another<br />

proud Hagestad Porsche find . . . so<br />

we just had to connect the people<br />

with their cars. Here are two men<br />

reintroducing their cars to the man<br />

who sold them back in the 1970s!<br />

Bruce Johnston<br />

Member since 2016,<br />

Owner 1975 ‘911S,<br />

1988 ‘924 and 2004 ‘911S along<br />

with Bill Kruder and Bob Hagestad<br />

Debi Gibson: Bruce, so tell me about<br />

your cars.<br />

Bruce Johnston: Well we have<br />

three Porsches in the family, two<br />

Volkswagens, and all that to say,<br />

“I’m a classic Ford Guy!”<br />

Bob Hagestad: Good Grief!<br />

(with a puzzled look)<br />

Debi: So how and when did the<br />

Porsche brand enter the family?<br />

Bruce: In 1975, my brother-inlaw<br />

traded a ’74 Datsun in for a<br />

new 1975 911S. He and my sister<br />

drove it for 11 years, and then after<br />

a tough year with 66,621 miles on<br />

the odometer they parked it in the<br />

garage. The car just represented<br />

a challenging season in their life,<br />

and so they turned the key off and<br />

let it sit. More than 30 years later,<br />

Rick gave the 911S to me cheap.<br />

12 <strong>October</strong><br />

Debi: Wow!<br />

Bruce: I like to bring cars back<br />

to their original condition. I have<br />

completely restored multiple vehicles,<br />

including a 1939 Ford Truck,<br />

three 1966 Mustangs, and a 1949<br />

Case Tractor. I always loved the old<br />

tractor, and one day I said to my<br />

Uncle Norman, “Let me buy it for<br />

$500 and I’ll make it brand new.” I<br />

restored it and returned it back to<br />

the farm.<br />

Debi: (He shows me a picture of the<br />

most beautiful orange 1949 Case Tractor.)<br />

I’m impressed!<br />

Bruce: Well, I’m not a mechanic,<br />

but I like to make things look nice<br />

and admire them. After Rick gave<br />

me the 911, within a week I had<br />

rolled it up in my garage, cleaned<br />

it all up good, took the tank out,<br />

tested the injectors, and fired it up<br />

and got it running!<br />

Bill Kruder: I don’t know what<br />

you are talking about, Bruce, because<br />

you just told me five minutes<br />

ago that you weren’t a mechanic!<br />

Bruce: I teach myself new things<br />

and eventually I figure it out. I like<br />

to keep everything organized too.<br />

I’ve got my tools so organized I can<br />

Bruce Johnston (center), with<br />

Bill Kruder (left) and Bob Hagestad<br />

close my eyes and still pick up whatever<br />

I need! (chuckling)<br />

Debi: So when did you guys figure<br />

out the connection . . . three guys, two<br />

cars, and one dealership?<br />

Bill: Well Bruce was telling Mark<br />

Palmer at one of our non-worker<br />

coffee meet-ups about his car, and<br />

mentioned Hagestad’s dealership,<br />

and Mark was like, “Bill, ya gotta<br />

hear this!”<br />

(Bruce proceeds to show us all<br />

of the original paperwork, manual,<br />

sales invoice, and more. Bob gazes<br />

at the invoice in amazement! I<br />

think he’s simply flattered that two<br />

men are so proud to own cars from<br />

his place.)<br />

Bill: So Bob, the 914 was delivered<br />

from your place in the fall of ’70 and<br />

Bruce’s 911 in the spring of ’75. What<br />

were you doing?<br />

Bob: Well, I was just selling<br />

Porsches (with a grin). My family<br />

had our Porsche dealership<br />

in 1960, and then in 1969 we expanded,<br />

separating our franchise<br />

and adding Audi to the mix. So in<br />

1970 we had 13 employees opening<br />

a Porsche/Audi store, but we<br />

had no Audis! And then once they<br />

were delivered, they were terrible!<br />

That’s what ultimately caused me<br />

to give up the business.<br />

Bruce: I think there is an IHOP<br />

where your dealership was now. I<br />

had family that lived in Denver and<br />

I traveled there most every week for<br />

work for years.<br />

Bob: So you never lived there<br />

(Denver)?<br />

Bruce: No, I just worked there<br />

on various projects. I have traveled<br />

over five million miles with American.<br />

Do you remember the “Drumstick<br />

Restaurant” in Denver that<br />

was close to your dealership?<br />

Bob: Oh yes! I used to go in there<br />

and order their gizzards (mouth<br />

watering). I lived in an apartment<br />

right around the corner! What did<br />

you do as your profession?

Bruce: I was in hotel development.<br />

It was fun but also stressful<br />

with the timelines for project completion.<br />

I’m a recent non-worker<br />

actually. Just retired!<br />

Bill: So you both (Bob and Bruce)<br />

have another mutual connection: Grady<br />

Clay.<br />

Bruce: Grady is on my service<br />

records as he installed the metal<br />

flares on the 911.<br />

Bob: Yeah, I knew Grady from<br />

my racing days. I began racing in<br />

1960 when my mechanic at the<br />

Bruce’s 1975 ‘911S and Bill’s 1971<br />

‘914, both sold by Bob Hagestad<br />

dealership convinced me to take<br />

a cabriolet off the showroom floor<br />

and race it (smiling). I put a roll<br />

bar in it and took this car (which<br />

was for sale) off the floor and drove<br />

it to the racetrack by Castle Rock. I<br />

entered the race and won!<br />

Bill: And when was it that Hurley<br />

Haywood joined you?<br />

Bob: We did Watkins Glen six<br />

hour race together. I co-drove in<br />

my car and we won it! In 1978, we<br />

took a Turbo up there and it was<br />

the last time I raced with him.<br />

Bill: Didn’t you wreck a car once?<br />

Bob: Oh yes, hit the wall hard at<br />

Watkins Glen! I needed a replacement<br />

and we found that Peter<br />

Gregg had one in Jacksonville.<br />

Only problem was he wouldn’t let<br />

me race it with his colors so my<br />

chief mechanic’s wife had an idea<br />

on how to cover it. Next thing I<br />

know the car is wrapped in contact<br />

paper. You know, the stuff you line<br />

drawers with? It was a funny color<br />

(making a funny face too!).<br />

Debi: So Bruce I’m looking at your<br />

invoices. What has the 911 actually cost<br />

you to get it running?<br />

Bruce: $5K. So the garage is going<br />

to cost me a lot more!<br />

Debi: Well guys, can’t thank you<br />

enough for sharing stories, connections,<br />

coffee, and cars. Bruce, what are you up<br />

to next?<br />

Bruce: Well I’m headed home to<br />

take my seats apart this afternoon.<br />

I finally found the seat material<br />

in Palm Springs but it would have<br />

been $1800 without installment, so<br />

instead I have some fabric wear and<br />

we are going to work with it myself.<br />

It will look nice and of course keep<br />

it original!<br />

Well as Bill always says, the Mavs<br />

are the best at connecting people<br />

with their cars, and in the process,<br />

Driving Friendships!<br />


Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase<br />

By Rob Adams, Lisa Ward, and Mike Mahoney<br />

Photos as noted<br />

ditor’s Note: a few of our<br />

E<br />

Maverick Region members<br />

recently participated in the<br />

first annual Park Place<br />

Luxury & Supercar Showcase. What<br />

follows are three perspectives from Rob<br />

Adams, Lisa Ward, and Mike Mahoney<br />

as they attended this event.<br />

Rob Adams, 1994 Porsche 968<br />

This was a weekend<br />

chock-full of local<br />

events for gearheads,<br />

but I was fortunate<br />

enough to be part of<br />

the inaugural Park Place Luxury<br />

and Supercar Showcase. Mother<br />

Nature provided perfect weather,<br />

and Four Seasons Resort provided<br />

the perfect venue for a thoughtfully<br />

laid out field of cars, ranging<br />

from antique and classic to supercars.<br />

And after sensory overload of<br />

all things automotive, guests were<br />

treated to culinary sensations from<br />

local gastromeisters served in bitesize<br />

samples that left you wanting to<br />

sneak back in line.<br />

of their Porsches at the event<br />

For a first<br />

attempt, this<br />

was a success.<br />

Limited to 100<br />

cars, there was<br />

a full field,<br />

although I suspect<br />

the next<br />

event will possibly<br />

be scrutinized<br />

a little<br />

tighter as the<br />

show is being<br />

touted as something<br />

along the<br />

lines of Pebble<br />

Beach, but<br />

without the ocean and 73-degree<br />

weather and wine country normally<br />

associated with Car Week. But hey,<br />

that’s precisely how great things get<br />

started.<br />

Lisa Ward, 2009 Cayman S<br />

September 9th,<br />

<strong>2017</strong>, dad and I went to<br />

the first ever Park Place<br />

Luxury and Supercar<br />

Showcase at the Four<br />

Seasons Resort and Club in Las Colinas.<br />

What a fabulous event.<br />

The oogling over cars began on<br />

the shuttle ride, where we saw our<br />

first of many McLarens. All were<br />

turning their heads to get a peek<br />

as it drove by. It was like the Ascot<br />

for cars; there were big hats, bright<br />

pants, and man buns, oh my! I had<br />

to smile at the champagne and<br />

Grey Poupon in the Rolls Royce,<br />

but nothing beats the classic white<br />

rim tires.<br />

Inside the food was delicious.<br />

We ate a well-balanced meal of ice<br />

cream, crab cakes, and hamburgers<br />

in great Porsche Club company<br />

– priorities, you know! I may not<br />

know much about engine size or<br />

model, but I love hearing the stories<br />

behind the car and its history<br />

of ownership. Ask me about the<br />

Porsches for the track and street on display<br />

Seasons parking lot<br />

in the dark at 6:30 am<br />

Saturday morning, Bill<br />

Kruder and I are greeted<br />

by Rob Adams in his beautiful<br />

blue 1994 968 and Chris & Gabe<br />

Sorrells in their striking metallic<br />

blue 1982 Targa. First order of<br />

business is coffee and registration.<br />

As the dark subsides and the light<br />

shines on our small but colorful<br />

fleet of P cars, reality sets in as I<br />

peruse the incredible collection<br />

of cars in the staging area. Vintage<br />

Jaguars, extremely rare Puegot, Bugatti’s,<br />

Bentley’s, McLaren’s, Lambroghini’s,<br />

Ferrari’s etc… Bill and<br />

I look at each other and ask, “are<br />

they sure they invited us here?”<br />

Needless to say it was a stunning<br />

gathering of incredible cars at a<br />

five star venue. And we represented<br />

well with Blain Fike and his beautiful<br />

grand prix white 1989 964 taking<br />

first runner up in the classic car<br />

division. Losing only to a flawless<br />

black 1996 993 Turbo.<br />

All in all a beautiful event, venue<br />

and day. A first class event. I look<br />

forward to next year.<br />

Mavs & Mochas: August and September Events<br />

By Matt Wilson (August) and Derrick Tate (September)<br />

ontgomery Plaza was the site for our August<br />

M<br />

edition of Mavs & Mochas. The day dawned<br />

on a beautiful August Saturday in Fort<br />

Worth, a city many refer to as Cowtown. I<br />

was a bit worried about the weather for our event, as<br />

roughly 12 hours earlier a huge cloud had formed and<br />

dumped over an inch of rain over downtown; nevertheless<br />

clear skies prevailed. It would be the first time we<br />

have hosted a Mavs & Mochas in Ft. Worth proper. We<br />

typically try to alternate each month with locations on<br />

the “east” and “west” sides of DFW. This was a “west”<br />

month, so Montgomery Plaza just west of downtown Ft.<br />

Worth would be a perfect venue! The location had lots<br />

of open parking, a Chick-Fil-A, and a Starbucks Coffee<br />

within walking distance. What more do we need? Well,<br />

a bunch of Porsches, of course!<br />

Since I live just over two miles away, I arrived early<br />

and started setting up cones around 7:15 am. Shortly<br />

after a few cars had shown up, a gentleman driving a<br />

911 stopped and inquired about the meeting. He was<br />

unaware of the club’s existence and wanted to see what<br />

was up. The Fort Worth resident enjoyed viewing cars<br />

and conversing with like-minded Porsche enthusiasts,<br />

and stayed for the entire event!<br />

I knew it was going to be a good turnout when we<br />

had over 40 cars already by the time the “official” 8:30<br />

am start rolled around. John Hamilton and Autobahn<br />

Porsche were gracious enough to bring both a new<br />

718 Boxster and Cayman for the crowd to drool over.<br />

Thanks John! We even had a member who smartly<br />

brought his drone and took impressive video footage<br />

from above (see Maverick Region Facebook page for<br />

the video.)<br />

The parking lot continued to fill, and all said, we<br />

had over 100 Porsches, including a 918 Spyder, Carrera<br />

GT, and a 991 GT3 RS!<br />

The only production<br />

cars not represented<br />

were the 924 and 959.<br />

We had quite an array<br />

of cars for our first Mavs<br />

& Mochas in Cowtown.<br />

We received abundant<br />

positive feedback about<br />

the historic Montgomery<br />

Plaza venue with a<br />

scenic view of downtown<br />

Fort Worth. Many<br />

even stated that it was<br />

“the best Mavs & Mochas<br />

ever”!<br />

y fourth official Mavs & Mochas was nothing<br />

short of amazing! The weather was<br />

M<br />

perfect for coffee, donuts, and great conversations.<br />

September’s Mavs & Mochas was<br />

held at Dallas Motorsports and featured Porsche SUVs.<br />

Not only were there beautiful Macans and Cayennes to<br />

admire and celebrate, but a variety of other Porsches<br />

as well, including several from Dallas Motorsports’ own<br />

selection of cars. Different models of P-cars filled the<br />

lots at this location and even flowed into the street.<br />

There were nearly 100 cars that showed up for this<br />

Mavs & Mochas.<br />

Dallas Motorsports hosted 96 Maverick Porsches<br />

Photo by Bill Orr<br />

This was my first visit to Dallas Motorsports and it<br />

was very interesting to see their inventory. A few of<br />

their cars included a ‘65 Corvette, an ‘08 F1 Ferrari,<br />

and an ‘88 930 Turbo. To go along with viewing the<br />

many great cars, were many great conversations and<br />

meeting new people. At every event I meet new people<br />

and make new connections that will certainly last a lifetime.<br />

Although I may be younger (by a couple of years)<br />

than many of the people that attend these events, I feel<br />

as though I fit right in, and age is irrelevant. It is amazing<br />

because I usually hate waking up early, especially<br />

for school, but when it comes to a Mavs & Mochas, I am<br />

up an hour before my alarm even goes off!<br />

Despite Bill Kruder, Mike Mahoney, and several others<br />

being absent due to having their spectacular cars at<br />

the Park Place event being held the same day, this was<br />

still an unforgettable Mavs & Mochas. I want to say<br />

thank you to Dallas Motorsports for having us, and<br />

thanks to Bill Orr for capturing all of the amazing cars<br />

and people. Now the countdown begins for the next<br />

unforgettable Mavs & Mochas!<br />

Upcoming Maverick Region Events

Lube for Thought: Lubrication, Part 1<br />

By Mike Mahoney, Region Concours Chair<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

his is the first in a series<br />

T<br />

of articles on lubrication<br />

and how important<br />

it is to you and your car.<br />

We all know we need engine oil. But<br />

do you know its various functions?<br />

Do you know what types of additives<br />

are needed in engine oil and<br />

why? Do you know why you need to<br />

change your engine oil? What’s the<br />

difference between engine oil and<br />

gear oil? Grease, what is it? We will<br />

tackle these questions and more.<br />

I’ll begin with the basics of engine<br />

oil and then move on to gear<br />

oil and grease.<br />

You’ve probably heard the<br />

phrase “oil is the life blood of your<br />

engine.” While that happens to be<br />

true, it’s especially true in Porsches.<br />

One reason is the high-revving engines.<br />

And in air-cooled engines,<br />

it’s the high heat.<br />

In an air-cooled engine, about<br />

8% of the heat generated by the<br />

engine finds its way into the oil. As<br />

all of us air-cooled nuts know, those<br />

engines get pretty hot! And I know<br />

8% may not seem like a lot, but every<br />

degree in temperature equates<br />

to increased oxidation of the oil<br />

or thickening of the oil. For every<br />

10-degree increase of the oil, the<br />

rate of oxidation doubles.<br />

18 <strong>October</strong><br />

Dirt is another enemy of oil. Oil<br />

deteriorates from the various contaminants<br />

that find their way in to<br />

the crankcase. Dirt from dirty air<br />

filters, cracks in the air system, as<br />

well as from limitations in air filter<br />

design and from crankcase ventilation<br />

systems. The oil also picks up<br />

metal particles from normal wear<br />

of engine parts, and if not removed,<br />

can cause premature wear as well.<br />

There are various additives in<br />

engine oil. Additives for neutralizing<br />

acids, anti-wear additives,<br />

dispersants, etc. Over time, the oils<br />

additives are depleted and are unable<br />

to do their job of neutralizing,<br />

suspending, dispersing, and solubilizing<br />

contaminants. Oxidation<br />

of the oil itself happens over time<br />

for the same reasons, and is accelerated<br />

by heat. In addition, the<br />

combustion process is dirty business,<br />

as a result of the thousands<br />

of explosions going on inside the<br />

combustion chamber in each of<br />

the cylinders. One of the byproducts<br />

of combustion is water. Most<br />

of the water that comes from the<br />

combustion process is in the form<br />

of steam or water vapor and goes<br />

out the exhaust. But at low temperatures<br />

and short trips, the water<br />

condenses and sticks to cylinder<br />

walls, ultimately making its way into<br />

the crankcase and the oil. This can<br />

lead to the formation of sludge and<br />

corrosion of metal parts.<br />

There are also acidic gases produced<br />

by the combustion process.<br />

They too adhere to the cylinder<br />

walls at low temperatures and end<br />

up in the oil. They combine with the<br />

water and become corrosive. Additives<br />

assist in in preventing damage<br />

from these factors but you have to<br />

regularly change your oil. It’s the<br />

only way to get rid of the contaminants<br />

and acids that are suspended<br />

in the oil. The filter will not remove<br />

everything, and with the additives<br />

being depleted, it won’t be able to<br />

continue to do its job.<br />

Well, as you can see, your oil is<br />

working hard for you. So do your<br />

part. If your engine oil could talk,<br />

it would be doing its best Jerry Maguire:<br />

“help me help you!”<br />

That covers the basics of engine<br />

oil. Next time we will talk about viscosity,<br />

synthetics, and gear oil. Did<br />

you know that viscosity is the single<br />

most important factor when selecting<br />

any lubricant? So what is viscosity?<br />

See you next time.<br />

Mike Mahoney spent over 35 years<br />

with ExxonMobil where he worked in<br />

lubricant manufacturing and sales. He<br />

retired 2 years ago and is a 1 year PCA<br />

Maverick Region member.

Porsche 968: End of the Transaxle Era<br />

By Rob Adams<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

t the end of the successful run of the<br />

A<br />

924/944 series, the marketing types at<br />

Porsche needed something to stimulate<br />

sales until development of their newest<br />

entry level offering, the 986 Boxster, was ready for<br />

production. Porsche redesigned the 944 S2 to such an<br />

extent that marketing decided to brand the new design<br />

the 968.<br />

Porsche’s 968 production was moved to Zuffenhausen,<br />

where it was manufactured alongside the 911.<br />

Styling cues (courtesy of Harm Lagaay) were borrowed<br />

from the 928, 959, and the 993 (1994 and later) but to<br />

most, they were still rooted in the 944. However, the<br />

968 brought significant innovation in the Porsche evolution:<br />

the first Porsche to use VarioCam timing and<br />

the first Porsche 6-speed manual. The naturally aspirated<br />

3.0 liter inline, 16-valve four was the third largest<br />

production engine of its type at the time and incorporated<br />

twin balance<br />

shafts to<br />

counteract the<br />

vibration created<br />

by relatively<br />

large cylinders<br />

(4.09 in. bore x<br />

3.46 in. stroke)<br />

and a compression<br />

ratio of 11.0<br />

to 1. The engine<br />

was rated at 236<br />

horsepower<br />

at 6200 rpm,<br />

and 225 lb-ft of<br />

torque.<br />

The 968, with its near 50/50 weight distribution resulting<br />

from the front engine/rear transaxle layout, is a<br />

delight to drive. It is very nimble and can be tail-happy<br />

with a little coaxing, yet forgiving and easily brought<br />

back under control. Gathering 60 mph takes about six<br />

seconds for the manual, and top speed is around 156<br />

mph. Owners had the option of upgrading the suspension<br />

to the M030 sport version as well as a limited slip<br />

differential. The<br />

968 shown here<br />

has the standard<br />

suspension, but<br />

the rare option of<br />

the lsd.<br />

The interior was<br />

clearly a carryover<br />

from the 944, but<br />

during the 968 years, Porsche offered a high level of<br />

options allowing consumers to custom design their car.<br />

The 968 shown is an example of the “deviated carpet<br />

color” option resulting in a striking two-tone interior.<br />

Unfortunately, the 968 came at a difficult time for<br />

Porsche financially and Japan was quickly catching up<br />

with similar offerings at a much lower price. Porsche<br />

countered with variants including the Club Sport<br />

and Sport, which offered the same power but lighter,<br />

stripped-down platforms. There were a few exotic and<br />

ultra-rare 968 production cars, the Turbo S and Turbo<br />

RS, which are now highly collectible.<br />

Over the 968’s<br />

production run of<br />

five years, a total<br />

of 12,776 were<br />

produced worldwide,<br />

with only<br />

2,234 coupes and<br />

2,008 cabriolets<br />

making it to the<br />

US. These cars<br />

are quickly gaining<br />

value and are<br />

considered a very<br />

collectible<br />

Porsche for the<br />

future.<br />

Tech Session: Ceramic Coatings for Easy Cleaning<br />

By Robert Kendrick<br />

hen I volunteered my car for the tech session<br />

at Concorso Detailing, I didn’t know<br />

W<br />

what to expect. I had heard about ceramic<br />

coatings and how it was almost magical or<br />

similar to Teflon, in that nothing would stick to it. The<br />

description wasn’t far from the truth as I came to learn<br />

during the actual session.<br />

Tony Varvel, owner of Concorso Detailing, explained<br />

what ceramic coating was and wasn’t and how to apply.<br />

It wasn’t magical and wasn’t Teflon but it was a coating<br />

that would seal the surface with a hard shell finish that<br />

would allow for much easier clean up of brake dust and<br />

much more. Tony went on to discuss the importance<br />

of the preparation of the surface prior to applying the<br />

ceramic coating. If the surface wasn’t completely clean<br />

one runs the risk of trapping dirt and dust particles<br />

under the hard shell finish, turning the surface finish<br />

dingy rather than clean and shiny. He also discussed<br />

the importance of being patient and flowing the application<br />

on to not leave a mark where you finish.<br />

The demonstration on Jim Hirsch’s Boxster S really<br />

showed how the brake dust simply washed off with a<br />

spray of water. The blow dry it received after the wash<br />

Photos by Jim Hirsch<br />

revealed clean, shiny<br />

wheels and calipers. I<br />

am so looking forward<br />

to that on my own car<br />

now that I have been<br />

ceramic’ed at Concorso<br />

Detailing.<br />

Overall Tony’s attention<br />

to detail and<br />

2 weeks, 400 miles of driving expert application of<br />

the product as well as<br />

his knowledge of the<br />

impacts of temperature,<br />

humidity and<br />

other atmospheric impacts<br />

on the products<br />

he uses, the paint on<br />

the surfaces and just<br />

the products themselves<br />

gave me a new<br />

After water-only spray<br />

appreciation of what it<br />

takes to give vehicles the look they deserve. As Tony<br />

says, “It’s all in the details”.<br />

Big Noise from Winnetka<br />

By Hammer<br />

ig Noise blew in from Winnetka,<br />

stole each fella’s<br />

B<br />

heart. Big Noise blew in<br />

from Winnetka; Big Noise<br />

blew right out again.<br />

I was working a $50-a-day breeze,<br />

looking for a 17-year-old runaway<br />

from Oak Cliff. She was an honors<br />

student, majoring in men. And she<br />

had all ‘’A’s’’ too -- none of them<br />

on a report card. She had only one<br />

other interest: dancing.<br />

“I am the one they call the Big<br />

Noise. I got to dance my way to fame.<br />

I just blew in from Winnetka; that<br />

town will never be the same”.<br />

Her parents reeked of old money,<br />

the kind of money that’d been<br />

stashed away in private Swiss bank<br />

accounts since before that Archduke<br />

in Austria-Hungary got assassinated<br />

back in ‘14 to start WWI.<br />

Remember that one? It was in all<br />

the papers.<br />

I scouted the standard dime-adance<br />

joints on Harry Hines, but<br />

nobody would cozy up to me. Go<br />

figure. After spreading around<br />

a few sawbucks, a local hipster<br />

in a bathtub Porsche tipped me<br />

off to a little known speakeasy far<br />

north of the City where she could<br />

be spotted. It was hidden in some<br />

fancy garage complex, known only<br />

as “Jack’s Place.” To get in, you<br />

needed a passcode for the gate,<br />

and a fancy sports car to boot. For<br />

an extra fin my tipster gave me the<br />

passcode, but I knew my old heap<br />

wouldn’t pass the smell test.<br />

Needing something fast, I<br />

checked out some cheap sport<br />

models at the local used car lots<br />

-- you know, the ones run by white<br />

collar crooks; the kind of people<br />

you’d find smoking joints in the<br />

trailer office of a repossessed car lot<br />

on Garland Avenue.<br />

Then came a change of plans.<br />

My client offered me his pristine<br />

Jaguar XK120 for a night out on<br />

the town; provided I brought his<br />

daughter, and the Jag, back in one<br />

piece. With the canvas top down,<br />

and the wind blowing against my<br />

fedora, I motored up to Plano.<br />

“When Big Noise waltzes through<br />

the door the bouncer has to clear the<br />

floor,<br />

‘Cause everybody wants to see the<br />

girl get down.”<br />

“Jack’s Place” turned out to be<br />

everything everyone said it was,<br />

and more. The lights were low, the<br />

music loud, and the booze strong.<br />

Everyone who was anyone was<br />

there: Romo, Dirk, Beyonce, Tiger,<br />

even Seattle Slew. Word had it that<br />

Seattle Slew was there every night . .<br />

. damn, that horse could drink! The<br />

only thing missing was sultry Ingrid<br />

Bergman urging Dooley Wilson to<br />

“Play it again, Sam.”<br />

“She loves the bass. She loves the<br />

drum.<br />

She loves to stay out late and dance<br />

the samba, samba,<br />

How she loves to samba, rhumba,<br />

salsa, limbo and pachenga.”<br />

It was hard not to notice her<br />

from anywhere in the joint. She<br />

sure could dance, and she was cute<br />

too; cute as lace panties. All the<br />

men were transfixed by her. The<br />

air was so thick with testosterone<br />

that a flat-six chainsaw couldn’t cut<br />

through it. And when she stopped<br />

dancing . . . it was like watching a<br />

kitten trying to crawl out of a woodchipper.<br />

“She’s so restless; she’s on every<br />

guest list.<br />

None can please her. She’d say no<br />

to Caesar.”<br />

When I approached her, she had<br />

already made me, and knew exactly<br />

why I was there.<br />

“My parents sent you, didn’t they?<br />

I’m not going.” She declared defiantly.<br />

“Look, do you want to dance your<br />

way out, walk out, or be carried out?<br />

Makes no difference to me.”<br />

We waltzed by the drooling guys<br />

lined up against the wall, walked<br />

out to the Jag, then headed back to<br />

the City. She sat quietly at first, but<br />

after a while she opened up like a<br />

clam trapped in a sauna.<br />

She told me the rabbit died, and<br />

was deathly afraid to tell her parents.<br />

I sensed that she considered<br />

her options, but it was not my place<br />

to interfere; I was just delivering the<br />

mail. Then the waterworks opened<br />

up. If I had any paternal instincts,<br />

they bubbled up to the surface<br />

right then and there. I offered her<br />

the handkerchief in my jacket to<br />

cry into; the one for showin,’ not<br />

blowin.’<br />

We pulled into the driveway of<br />

the family manse. By then a light<br />

rain had started to fall. After dropping<br />

her off and collecting my fee,<br />

I started to walk back to my office.<br />

The night rain was almost fog-like,<br />

a cold gray curtain that separated<br />

me from the faces locked behind<br />

the steamed-up windows of the<br />

cars that hissed by. I walked, and<br />

I smoked, and I flipped the spent<br />

butts ahead of me and watched<br />

them arch to the pavement to fizzle<br />

out with one last wink, all the while<br />

thinking about that poor little<br />

mixed-up kid starting her adult life<br />

on the back foot.<br />

It took me four days to find her,<br />

so I collected a cool 200 greenbacks<br />

for the job. I put the two C-notes in<br />

an envelope and stashed it in the<br />

top drawer of my desk.<br />

A few months later, I spotted the<br />

birth announcement in the newspaper.<br />

I took the envelope from my<br />

desk drawer, addressed it to her,<br />

stamped it and then dropped it the<br />

mail chute down the hall from my<br />

office.<br />

Once she was pickin’ up the big<br />

boys,<br />

Now she’s pickin’ up her little kid’s<br />

toys.<br />

I’m no sap, but sometimes even<br />

the smallest gestures can make a<br />

guy feel right with the world. For a<br />

brief moment I thought I was getting<br />

soft, but my secretary Velda<br />

convinced me otherwise and<br />

straightened me right out. She’s<br />

good at that; real good. Right then,<br />

life was good.<br />

PCA Tours: Ray Roberts Lake<br />

By Mark Pitarresi, PCA Tours Co-Chair<br />

s <strong>October</strong> arrives I think we can all say we<br />

A<br />

are ready for cooler weather. Of course<br />

cooler weather translates to more power for<br />

our cars. At least it always seems that way<br />

for me. There is nothing like going for a great country<br />

drive when the seasons are changing. Entering <strong>October</strong><br />

we welcome you to the 5th and final tour of the<br />

year, PCA Tours Ray Roberts Lake! The tour is 85 miles<br />

long and we have a rest stop.<br />

At the time this article was written there was no<br />

construction on this route. We<br />

are scheduled to start on Sunday,<br />

<strong>October</strong> 15th, at 10am. The tour<br />

begins in the parking lot of Grayson<br />

College, 1455 W Van Alstyne<br />

Pkwy, in Van Alstyne, and will<br />

end at Prairie House restaurant<br />

in Cross Roads. After the start of<br />

our tour a few turns later we will<br />

be on the Famous FM455! If you<br />

have not been on this road in a<br />

Porsche you are missing out and<br />

will want to attend. This is one of<br />

the best roads in the area!<br />

Photo by Bill Orr<br />

You can expect beautiful country scenery, twisty<br />

turns, long straights, and great visibility throughout the<br />

route. Our tour will also be taking us around Ray Roberts<br />

Lake. Ray Roberts Lake is a 29,350 acre reservoir<br />

located 10 miles north of Denton, Texas. It is filled by a<br />

tributary of the Trinity River.<br />

Prairie House restaurant is casual and has Texasstyle<br />

food with many beef options in a rustic lodge with<br />

ranch like decor. There are also several other restaurants<br />

in the area to choose from in any direction.<br />

I also wanted you to know<br />

some changes in the PCA<br />

Tours program. With Bill Orr<br />

taking on more responsibility<br />

within the club, Tom Gomer<br />

has taken his place as Tours<br />

Co-Chair. Tom has been a<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

hope you’re enjoying our beautiful fall<br />

I<br />

weather here in the Maverick Region. We<br />

have been so fortunate compared to our<br />

Porsche brethren around Houston and<br />

Florida, that we feel a little bit guilty each time our<br />

Porsches leave the garage and “seize the road”.<br />

With this year marking the 55th anniversary of our<br />

Maverick Region, the group of members planning for<br />

our Founders’ Day Celebration is creating what appears<br />

to be almost a full day of potential activities for us<br />

to enjoy. Please be certain to read the 55th anniversary<br />

column on page 6 to get a glimpse of what they have<br />

in mind. More information will come to you via email,<br />

our web site, social media, and the November issue of<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong>. In any case, reserve December 2 on your calendars<br />

now!<br />

Looking through this issue reminded me of the<br />

wide variety of articles our members submit<br />

each month as well as the large number of<br />

club activities that are available to us should<br />

we choose to participate. Pages 16-17 in each<br />

issue are devoted exclusively to upcoming club<br />

events that I hope you review each month.<br />

As our president, David Robertson, mentioned in<br />

his Sprockets column, we have some new members<br />

stepping up to volunteer their efforts as event chairs.<br />

The direct result of those additions has been a<br />

rejuvenation in activities that have been dormant.<br />

In particular, Nikolaus Kremmer has our Tech<br />

Sessions program up and running with offerings at<br />

least once each quarter. In addition to July and August<br />

sessions, he has a third session scheduled for <strong>October</strong>,<br />

with the next sessions already on the books for January<br />

and March of 2018.<br />

Mike Mahoney is our new Concours Chair and has<br />

already brought our Mav members opportunities to<br />

participate in other local shows such as the one on<br />

page 14 and the Addison Oktoberfest Show. Look for<br />

Mike to have a Top Ten show as part of our Founders’<br />

Day Celebration as the next car show opportunity.<br />

Finally, Bill Orr is our new marketing chair, and<br />

all of us benefit from the talents and time he<br />

provides the club helping to manage the web<br />

site and administering our Facebook, Twitter,<br />

Instagram, and other social media outlets.<br />

As always, Carpe Viam as often as possible!<br />
