Sprockets: Happy New Year <strong>2018</strong><br />

By David Robertson, Region President<br />

appy New Year to all of my fellow Maverick<br />

H<br />

Region PCA members! I hope everyone<br />

had a great holiday season. I have been<br />

travelling in the Northeast a bit over the last<br />

month and I am reminded that we have quite a good<br />

season for driving our Porsches here in DFW, since<br />

there is always at least a chance that we could have topdown<br />

weather in <strong>January</strong>. I can tell you from personal<br />

experience after living in Boston for many years that we<br />

are very lucky to have a 12 month driving season and<br />

you should take advantage of that!<br />

We are not wasting any time in getting the event calendar<br />

up and running. The first Mavs & Mochas of the<br />

year will be held on Saturday, <strong>January</strong> 13 at Southlake<br />

Town Square. Each of these gatherings features a different<br />

Porsche model, and this month we are celebrating<br />

the 996. If you haven’t been to a Mavs & Mochas,<br />

you are in for a treat. There is always a wide variety of<br />

Porsches to see, ranging across many models and years,<br />

and it is a wonderful and casual event that allows you to<br />

get out on a Saturday morning and start your weekend<br />

off right!<br />

On Saturday, <strong>January</strong> 27 there will be two events,<br />

starting with a Tech Session in the morning. A Tech<br />

Session is an educational event, typically hosted by a<br />

local business, where we gather to learn something<br />

new about our Porsches. On the 27th we will be at Park<br />

Place Porsche to learn about the lubrication requirements<br />

on our cars and SUVs. I always learn something<br />

at these meetings that I haven’t seen on YouTube!<br />

On the afternoon of the<br />

On <strong>January</strong> 27th<br />

we will have<br />

the annual All<br />

Member Party.<br />

This event has<br />

grown to one<br />

of the biggest<br />

events of the<br />

year and is not<br />

to be missed.<br />

27th we will have the annual<br />

All Member Party. This event<br />

has grown to one of the biggest<br />

events of the year and is<br />

not to be missed. This party<br />

includes a car show with some<br />

very special Porsches, and it<br />

is a great way for all of our<br />

members to learn something<br />

new about the club. There are<br />

more details to be found on<br />

page 14 in this issue so I will<br />

not mention more, except to<br />

say that there is no football on TV that weekend!<br />

Make a New Year’s resolution to get to know some of<br />

your fellow Maverick members this year and participate<br />

in some of our events. There is something for everyone,<br />

and you probably already realize that your resolution<br />

of going to the fitness center on Saturday mornings is<br />

never going to happen!<br />

MAV OF THE MONTH: Debi Gibson<br />

Debi began contributing her time and creative<br />

energy to the Mavs & Mochas events a while back with<br />

some tweaks and ideas that really helped turn it into<br />

the great meet up that you see today.<br />

Since then, she has started getting more involved<br />

with our Social events and co-organized the Founders<br />

Day celebration last month that was one of our best<br />

ever. From the small details like the clever table<br />

decorations to the monumental task of arranging a<br />

venue and setting<br />

up catering for<br />

200 people, Debi<br />

made it look easy.<br />

She always has a<br />

smile and makes<br />

everyone feel<br />

welcomed at our<br />

events. Debi will<br />

be taking over<br />

the Social Chair<br />

position in<br />

February and I<br />

can’t wait to see<br />

what she comes<br />

up with!<br />

PCA Palooza 2017: aka Porsche Palooza in Eureka Springs<br />

By Larry Hampton, Jay Lynch, Mark Palmer, Landon Stogner, and Greg Ward<br />

ditor’s Note: the PCA<br />

E<br />

Palooza is a long-standing<br />

event (now in its 13th<br />

year) hosted by the White<br />

River, Cimarron, and Ozark Regions<br />

in the bucolic town of Eureka Springs.<br />

We had quite a number of Maverick<br />

Region members who participated in the<br />

event this year and what follows are the<br />

perspectives shared by our five authors.<br />

In addition, all of the included photos<br />

are courtesy of the authors. I know these<br />

shared experiences will entice you to consider<br />

attending the <strong>2018</strong> edition!<br />

Angel’s Diner - a must stop on the way to Palooza<br />

6 <strong>January</strong><br />

Mark Palmer<br />

PCA Palooza in Eureka<br />

Springs, Arkansas<br />

(also known as “Little<br />

Switzerland”), happens<br />

every November, when<br />

the small artsy town comes alive<br />

with the sound of flat sixes and turbos<br />

in every color, model, and year.<br />

This year was my first Palooza and<br />

I enjoyed it immensely. The laidback<br />

atmosphere, friendly people,<br />

and fantastic roads are perfect for<br />

Porsches.<br />

Over the past year, every person<br />

I asked about Palooza always<br />

told me that it was a “must-attend”<br />

event, and I am here to tell you to<br />

mark your calendars for November<br />

8-11, <strong>2018</strong> and to head to northwest<br />

Arkansas and Palooza. We had<br />

over 300 Porsches and close to 600<br />

people from 33 states, with great<br />

tours, car shows, silent auctions, socials,<br />

food, sponsors (including our<br />

own Dallas Motorsports as the title<br />

sponsor), and awesome weather.<br />

The roads showcase your Porsche’s<br />

handling, and can be experienced<br />

either by signing up for the tours or<br />

by heading out in your own groups<br />

using your own routes.<br />

Many attendees caravan to Eureka<br />

Springs from the Metroplex in<br />

small groups, as I did, with Landon,<br />

Jay, Greg, and Michele, taking<br />

roads like the Pig Trail or Talimena<br />

Scenic Byway to enjoy coming and/<br />

or going.<br />

PCA Palooza has become one<br />

of the largest Porsche events in the<br />

country, so if you want to enjoy a<br />

few days next year in the Ozarks,<br />

with three pedals or two, air-cooled<br />

or otherwise, and great people,<br />

leave the worries and stresses of the<br />

world behind and come join us in<br />

Eureka Springs for Palooza!<br />

Disclaimer: I received no compensation<br />

for this wholehearted<br />

endorsement!<br />

Jay, Mark, Landon, and Greg, a<br />

Maverick driving team<br />

Landon Stogner<br />

Taking a trip and<br />

getting away from the<br />

normal routine is always<br />

fun, but what’s<br />

even more fun is a<br />

great adventure with your Porsche<br />

and friends. Well, that is just what I<br />

did back in November. I had heard<br />

from many that taking the trip to<br />

Eureka Springs, AR for the PCA<br />

Palooza Event would<br />

be a blast, and boy, was<br />

it.<br />

Planning started<br />

back in June when we<br />

locked in our hotel<br />

reservations. Seeing<br />

how the event is so<br />

popular, the host hotel<br />

was already booked,<br />

so we settled for the<br />

“overflow” Best Western<br />

down the street. Pete, Mark,<br />

Jay, and I discussed making this trip<br />

back in April when we all attended<br />

the Hill Country Treffen Event in<br />

Austin, TX, so we had the starting<br />

phase of a caravan group that<br />

would make the six-plus hour drive<br />

from Plano to Eureka Springs. As<br />

time got closer we added another<br />

fine Porsche to our group when<br />

Greg and Michele agreed to join<br />

us. We started our journey on a<br />

Wednesday mid-morning by meeting<br />

at a place us Mavs like to frequent<br />

when we get together with<br />

our cars: Starbucks.<br />

After we all fueled up on caffeine<br />

and tuned our walkie-talkies<br />

to the same channel, we were off.<br />

Now the weather wasn’t our friend<br />

that day as we made most of the<br />

trip in the rain. We all agreed we’d<br />

rather have the rain on the drive to<br />

Arkansas than the rest of the time<br />

on the trip. Just before arriving at<br />

Angel’s Diner in McAllister, OK,<br />

the rain stopped. We enjoyed lunch<br />

in the 50s-style diner that had two<br />

vintage Cadillacs parked out front<br />

as part of the restaurant’s display.<br />

This was the first of many meals we


all shared together over our fiveday<br />

trip. After stuffing ourselves<br />

with good food, we finished the remainder<br />

of the trip arriving to our<br />

hotel just after dusk.<br />

Day One of Palooza started off<br />

with breakfast, then hopping in the<br />

car for the short drive to the convention<br />

center for our tour’s driver<br />

meeting. After receiving our maps<br />

and meeting our drive leaders, we<br />

were off. This day’s choice was Buffalo<br />

River Tour with a stop at Ozark<br />

Café in Jasper, AR for lunch. We<br />

continued on the great roads of<br />

hills and valleys making it back to<br />

Eureka Springs with enough time<br />

for us to stop off at the local car<br />

wash before heading back to the<br />

convention center for the nightly<br />

dinner.<br />

Day Two started off much like<br />

before; breakfast and driver meeting.<br />

This day’s route was the Southwest<br />

Missouri Tour. On our drive<br />

we stopped off at the Dogwood<br />

Canyon Nature Park in Missouri,<br />

which was a beautiful park. We<br />

enjoyed walking along some of the<br />

trails, looking at the natural waterfall,<br />

and checking out the two-story<br />

tree house.<br />

We continued on our tour, stopping<br />

in at the College of the Ozarks<br />

to have lunch and ice cream. Again<br />

after stuffing ourselves, we were<br />

back in the cars (anyone see a trend<br />

here?) on to the brief stop at one<br />

of the many area dams for a photo<br />

opp. We ended back at the hotel<br />

way ahead of schedule, so we decided<br />

on our own route for another<br />

drive. This led us to Beaver Lake,<br />

Castle Rogue’s Manor<br />

with a stop<br />

at the nearby<br />

Beaver Dam for<br />

pictures of our<br />

cars next to the<br />

water as the sun<br />

set.<br />

Day Three<br />

was a short<br />

morning tour<br />

to Castle Rogue’s Manor. The tour<br />

was short, as Saturday was the big<br />

Palooza Car Show and police-escorted<br />

parade through the downtown<br />

streets of Eureka Springs.<br />

The car show feature close to 300<br />

Porsches, ranging from the 356 to<br />

the 918 Spyder. I think the only car<br />

not represented was the Carrera<br />

GT.<br />

After the fun parade through the<br />

town, with the locals waving gourds<br />

as we drove by, it was back to the<br />

convention center for the dinner,<br />

door prizes, silent auction, bingo,<br />

and more. The banquet dinner was<br />

also where the People’s Choice winners<br />

were announced for each car<br />

class.<br />

Our caravan crew agreed to<br />

make this “trip to home” drive just<br />

as adventurous as the others. I was<br />

voted drive leader, so with Google<br />

Maps by my side, we headed south<br />

to Brashears, AR so we could connect<br />

up to the famous Pig Trail<br />

Scenic Byway. This stretch of road is<br />

more than words can describe. We<br />

drove the whole trail of hills, valleys,<br />

and curves before making our<br />

way across the Arkansas River on<br />

our way to Mena, AR. From Mena<br />

we headed west toward Oklahoma<br />

via the Talimena Scenic Byway.<br />

The five-day trip was another<br />

great testament to “Driving Friendships.”<br />

My name is already on the<br />

hotel list for Palooza <strong>2018</strong>.<br />

Jay Lynch<br />

Imagine you have<br />

planned an extended<br />

road trip. You have organized<br />

the drive with<br />

Porsches of the Maverick driving team<br />

four friends who own a select group<br />

of Porsches. It’s November and<br />

the leaves are turning all shades<br />

of splendor. The night before the<br />

trip to Eureka Springs and the<br />

2017 PCA Palooza, sleep is hard to<br />

come by. We had washed the cars,<br />

cleaned the interiors, blackened<br />

the tires and, oh yeah, checked the<br />

windshield wipers, because when<br />

the morning comes, it’s raining.<br />

A quick cup of Starbuck’s<br />

0-Dark-Thirty coffee and we are<br />

on the road. Nothing sweeter than<br />

Stuttgart’s finest, radar detector assisted,<br />

cruising from Texas through<br />

Oklahoma. A bite for lunch at Angel’s<br />

nostalgic Diner, and -- poof<br />

-- we are entering Arkansas. Night<br />

finds us winding through the twisties,<br />

cautiously watching for deer,<br />

and arriving in the cutest little resort<br />

community about 6:30 pm, just<br />

in time to sign in at the hotel, announce<br />

our arrival at the event center,<br />

and meet with other Porsche<br />

owners from across the country,<br />

including many friends from the<br />

Maverick Region. Over 300 cars<br />

were signed in and welcomed by an<br />

incredible team of Palooza volunteers<br />

who were absolutely fabulous,<br />

friendly, and extremely organized.<br />

Each day the groups of drivers<br />

met in designated areas where<br />

local team leaders reviewed the<br />

daily routes and destinations: Buffalo<br />

River, Boston Mountains, Dam<br />

Castle. Some of the most beautiful<br />

and scenic countryside infused<br />

with twisties, mountain roads, and<br />

river views. We visited a castle and<br />

museum with Elizabethan displays,<br />

the Treehouse Masters community<br />

of lakes with hiking trails and wa-<br />

7


terfalls, and the Bass Pro Log Cabin<br />

Restaurant and Event Center at<br />

the entrance to the College of the<br />

Ozarks.<br />

Saturday afternoon we all traveled<br />

through the streets of Eureka<br />

Springs, tossing candy to the crowd<br />

that had turned out to view the<br />

“Parade of Porsche Power.” Every<br />

evening there was entertainment: a<br />

wine gathering for the ladies (but I<br />

think a few gentlemen showed up),<br />

the Bingo Party filled with prizes<br />

and laughter, and the Awards Ceremony<br />

with introduction of Sponsors<br />

and distribution of door prizes,<br />

overseen by our hosts Melody and<br />

Leonard Zechiedrich.<br />

When we were not driving, we<br />

were eating: the Thursday night<br />

Mixer, the Friday night Cookout<br />

and Welcome Party, the Saturday<br />

night Banquet, and the Sunday<br />

morning breakfast, before saying<br />

farewell to old and new friends.<br />

No wonder this event is so well supported.<br />

Fabulous folks, gorgeous<br />

driving routes, and a town abundant<br />

with shops that thrive on and<br />

appreciate the tourist trade. We<br />

were hooked and made hotel reservations<br />

for next year’s event. OMG,<br />

by Sunday we found ourselves on<br />

the waiting list but anticipating our<br />

return to Eureka Springs.<br />

Greg Ward<br />

Porsche Palooza<br />

2017 was my first<br />

Porsche event out of<br />

the DFW area. Friends<br />

in four cars made the<br />

trip together with radios for navigation,<br />

communication, and wise<br />

cracks. Each day of the trip had<br />

eating, driving, photography, and<br />

socializing elements. We gathered<br />

at the convention center for staggered<br />

drivers’ meetings for the various<br />

tours of the day and made new<br />

acquaintances.<br />

Day one was 166 miles on the<br />

scenic Buffalo River Tour with a<br />

lunch stop in historic Jasper, Arkansas<br />

at the Ozark<br />

Cafe. The<br />

drive leader<br />

sat with us during<br />

lunch and<br />

we suggested a<br />

more spirited<br />

pace for the afternoon<br />

and he<br />

delivered.<br />

Day two was<br />

117 miles on<br />

the SW Missouri<br />

Tour,<br />

including the<br />

beautiful Dogwood Canyon Nature<br />

Park, which should be a repeat destination<br />

for further exploration.<br />

Our lunch stop was at the Keeter<br />

Center at the College of the Ozarks<br />

in Lookout, MO. We also did a<br />

photo stop at the Table Rock Dam.<br />

Day three included a Veterans<br />

Day Parade through Eureka<br />

Springs; our big group of cars<br />

was called the Porsche Parade of<br />

Power. Many people gathered for<br />

the event supporting our veterans.<br />

It was at the Show and Shine event<br />

that we finally saw all 300+ cars that<br />

were attending the event. What a<br />

collection of cars -- everything from<br />

the historic 356 to a 918 and from<br />

as far away as Montana, Canada,<br />

and Florida.<br />

The roads in northern Arkansas<br />

were really nice, some recently<br />

paved; there were lots of curves,<br />

many banked. The curves were<br />

close enough together that the<br />

cars gracefully zipped through<br />

the mountainsides. The mountain<br />

landscapes and fall colors were<br />

beautiful and the air was crisp.<br />

Many thanks to the organizers for<br />

a great event! We already have our<br />

rooms reserved for next year.<br />

Larry Hampton<br />

On November 9,<br />

Frank and Bobbie<br />

Briggs led a pack of<br />

Porsches for the tenth<br />

time to PCA Palooza<br />

A portion of the more than 300 Porsches that<br />

attended the 2017 PCA Palooza event<br />

2017. Other cars in this group were<br />

driven by Larry and Cathy Hampton,<br />

Doug and Cheryl Koeppen,<br />

Carey Spreen and Sue Crimm, and<br />

Marg Edwards. Of course there was<br />

the mandatory stop for lunch at Angel’s<br />

Café, a 50s diner, in McAlester,<br />

OK, and the very spirited drive up<br />

the “Pig Trail” in Arkansas.<br />

After registration that afternoon,<br />

we met up with Mavericks Clark<br />

Randall and Vanessa Fernandes for<br />

a great Italian dinner at Ermilio’s.<br />

Friday and Saturday morning were<br />

spent shopping, having drinks at<br />

the Crescent Hotel, and touring,<br />

including the Crystal Bridges Museum/Frank<br />

Lloyd Wright house,<br />

and quiet time at the Thorncrown<br />

Chapel. Saturday afternoon included<br />

the Parade of Porsches through<br />

downtown Eureka Springs, followed<br />

by the Peoples’ Choice Car<br />

Show. Many other Mavericks participated,<br />

and some were recognized<br />

at the Awards Banquet and closing<br />

ceremony Saturday night.<br />

Maverick winners of “Peoples’<br />

Choice” trophies included:<br />

John Savickas 918<br />

Larry Hampton 997 Turbo<br />

Scott Boyd 993 Turbo<br />

This year’s attendance was 332<br />

cars from 16 states and Puerto Rico,<br />

from 29 PCA Regions, making<br />

Palooza the second largest PCA<br />

event in the United States.<br />

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations<br />

By Bill Kruder<br />

his young Mav was truly<br />

T<br />

a chance meeting. Earlier<br />

this spring we had<br />

our Mavs & Mochas<br />

at Zims, then paraded over to the<br />

Heights Church in Richardson for<br />

their annual car show. As we pulled<br />

in, we apparently drove right by<br />

Derrick and his brother Kedereck.<br />

We finally parked and took a walk<br />

through the show, noticing this very<br />

nice Boxster with these two young<br />

men. We started up a conversation<br />

and invited Derrick, the owner, to<br />

come out with us. Well, come out<br />

with us he has! He joined us for his<br />

first Mavs & Mochas in Los Colinas<br />

and has been with us ever since, not<br />

only attending, but actively volunteering!<br />

I have gotten to know this<br />

young man over many coffees and<br />

cigars, and he doesn’t even smoke!<br />

So here is the next individual in<br />

my series of “conversations” I would<br />

like to share with you . . .<br />

Derrick Tate, member since 2017,<br />

Owner 1999 (986) Boxster<br />

and 2007 (987) Cayman<br />

Bill Kruder: So are you originally<br />

from here?<br />

Derrick Tate: No, I was born<br />

in Fort Hood, which is down near<br />

Killeen, Texas. We moved right after<br />

I was born so I tell everyone I’m<br />

originally from Decatur, Illinois as<br />

that’s where my memories are.<br />

Dallas, in about 2004, for a job.<br />

Since graduating college I’ve lived<br />

in Rockwall.<br />

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

DT: I graduated in 2016 from<br />

UNT.<br />

BK: And what was your degree in?<br />

DT: It’s an Applied Arts and Science<br />

degree with a concentration<br />

in Criminal Justice. Right now I’m<br />

just wrapping up my MBA in Criminal<br />

Justice; I plan on starting Law<br />

School in fall <strong>2018</strong>.<br />

BK: And I understand you have put<br />

yourself through college?<br />

DT: Yes, I have. I’ve been fortunate<br />

enough to get some scholarship<br />

money and the rest comes<br />

from my business.<br />

BK: Let’s see . . . you are all of 24<br />

and go to school and have a business?<br />

DT: I know! I wonder at times<br />

(laughing), but yes, I have a mobile<br />

auto repair business.<br />

BK: How did that come about?<br />

DT: Well I always was a tinkering<br />

kid. It started when I was about<br />

12-13 and I would watch my dad<br />

work on his motorbikes. When I<br />

was about 14 I acquired one of his<br />

old ones and I fixed it up so I could<br />

ride up and down the alley. Then<br />

from there I started working on the<br />

family cars, then friends’ cars, and<br />

it just kept growing.<br />

BK: But I hear it’s a mobile service?<br />

DT: Yes, it’s DJ Automotive. I<br />

did a little research and found that<br />

people often found themselves<br />

stranded by some of the simpler<br />

things I could fix on the spot rather<br />

than tow.<br />

BK: Ok so tell me about your first<br />

car?<br />

DT: That was a 2002 BMW 325i.<br />

I have this thing for German cars I<br />

guess. I remember when my brother<br />

and I would play video games I<br />

would always pick the German cars.<br />

BK: So how did you get into the<br />

Porsche world?<br />

DT: Well, like I said, I have always<br />

liked German cars, and always<br />

admired Porsches. So one day my<br />

girlfriend’s mom asked if I would<br />

take her car to get it washed. Well of<br />

course I would, it’s a Boxster. That’s<br />

all it took and I knew I wanted one<br />

so about three years ago I bought<br />

my first.<br />

BK: And what was it?<br />

DT: It’s the one I met you guys<br />

in, a 1999 Glacier White Boxster.<br />

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

DFW?<br />

DT: Well, we were a military family<br />

so we moved some, that’s what<br />

took us to Illinois.<br />

BK: So your dad was in the military<br />

-- what branch?<br />

DT: Oh no, my mom was. She<br />

was in the Army and was a heavy<br />

equipment operator. It wasn’t<br />

‘til she got out that we moved to<br />

Derrick’s 2007 Cayman (Photo by Michael Durovick)<br />

12 <strong>January</strong>


BK: So what would be your ultimate<br />

Porsche?<br />

DT: That’s easy! That would be<br />

a base model 993. It’s the last aircooled<br />

made, and it’s often considered<br />

to be the best one ever made,<br />

well, best air-cooled.<br />

The author and the “Apprentice” (Photo by Landon Stogner)<br />

BK: And I know there is another?<br />

DT: There is, I’ve always wanted<br />

a Cayman. So Erica, my girlfriend,<br />

and I talked and she said go for it.<br />

I managed to save for the past year<br />

and figured I would sell the Boxster<br />

to help pay for it. Well in August I<br />

found the black 2007.<br />

BK: But you still have the Boxster?<br />

DT: I do (laughing); Erica said I<br />

should just keep it.<br />

BK: Wow, so some might call you<br />

an “enthusiast!” Bill Orr has defined<br />

our Porsche owners as: one,<br />

you’re an owner; two, you’re Derrick;<br />

and three, you’re a collector.<br />

Any more than that, you’re crazy!<br />

So there you have it once again.<br />

Had we not gone to the Heights,<br />

had we not taken the time to stop<br />

and chat, we would have missed out<br />

on our club’s future. Derrick not<br />

only attends every Mavs & Mochas<br />

but has become one of the most active<br />

volunteers at many events, even<br />

attending our monthly board meetings.<br />

Matter of fact, many attending<br />

the Founders Day Celebration at<br />

Texas Harley-Davidson would have<br />

been greeted by him at the reception<br />

desk. Derrick is the true meaning<br />

of “Driving Friendships!”<br />

Maverick Region 55th Anniversary Founders Day<br />

By Olga Taylor, Manu Bhatia, and Beckie Gomer<br />

A<br />

s a new Maverick, I approached the 55th<br />

Anniversary Mavs & Mochas event with a<br />

bit of nervousness. Would my ‘80 SC play<br />

well with the other models? After years<br />

of power steering, would I be able to successfully<br />

back her into a parking space? I was feeling all of<br />

that and more.<br />

Alas, my fear was replaced with joy when I saw<br />

the huge smiles of Mav volunteers and vast expanse<br />

of my favorite marque. The traffic jam was<br />

stunning -- I just loved every bit of it.<br />

There was no lack of diversity! I saw wonderfully<br />

preserved 356s parked beside various 911<br />

models, new and old. Yes, I saw at least one 914,<br />

many beautiful Boxsters and Caymans; in fact I<br />

might have seen at least one Panamera and a few<br />

Cayennes. (I missed seeing everything -- sorry if<br />

your baby is not mentioned here). My conclusion:<br />

this club is very welcoming -- I think I saw<br />

a BMW in the mix. So, after confidently backing<br />

into a parking spot, things got better as I walked<br />

amongst these marvelous vehicles.<br />

While Porsches are known for style, smell,<br />

and sound, PCA members are an eclectic group<br />

who love to drive, display, and discuss Porsches.<br />

Top-down if possible, hood-up if warranted, and<br />

always confidently parked -- this is how we do it!<br />

So, what was it like? Imagine throngs of strangers<br />

sharing war stories interrupted by spontaneous<br />

bursts of laughter. That’s what it was like at<br />

the 55th Anniversary Mavs & Mochas at Highland<br />

Park Village on December 2, 2017. Many thanks<br />

to all the volunteers who created this wonderful<br />

experience. Your execution was flawless!<br />

Final thoughts: never miss a Mavs & Mochas<br />

event. Whatever your mindset or preconceived<br />

notions, show up. You will be overwhelmed by the<br />

outpouring of friendship. And like me, you and<br />

your Porsche might receive the President’s Award<br />

at the People’s Choice Car Show: total surprise.<br />

- Olga Taylor<br />

he first Saturday in December, over 200<br />

T<br />

Porsche enthusiasts gathered together with<br />

their families in the Highland Park Village<br />

to celebrate their love of a truly unique<br />

sports car brand. With the parking lot filled nearly to<br />

capacity with cars ranging from beautifully restored<br />

vintage automobiles dating back to the 1960s to pristine<br />

nearly-million-dollar hypercars, there was a little<br />

bit of something for everybody’s tastes. Base model<br />

Boxsters parked next to range-topping GT3s, sporty<br />

sedans parked next to family-friendly SUVs. Nearly every<br />

car in the Porsche model lineup was represented in<br />

one way or another.<br />

Mike Mahoney, the Maverick Region Concours<br />

Chair, made this Founders Day Mavs & Mochas an<br />

extra special event by hosting a People’s Choice Top<br />

Ten car show. Every person who attended this morning<br />

event got to cast a vote for each of the ten Porsches<br />

they saw that most caught their eye. Over 100 Maverick<br />

members chose to participate in the Top Ten show<br />

and each donated $10 for our Huffaker Hughes Hope<br />

House charity.<br />

The results were announced at our evening event:<br />

1st overall: Michael Hensarling, 1956 356 Speedster<br />

2nd overall: Jack Griffin, 1955 356 Continental<br />

3rd overall: Bill Kruder, 1964 356 C<br />

President’s Choice: Olga Taylor, 1980 911 SC Targa<br />

Rounding out the top 10, in year model order:<br />

Roberto Anderson, 1963 356 C<br />

Pam Adams, 1967 911<br />

Raj Gill, 1996 911 (993) Turbo<br />

Three Morning Events to Start a Day of Celebrations<br />

Mavs & Mochas and Toy Drive photos by Bob Molyneux<br />

What sets the<br />

Maverick Region<br />

apart from other<br />

car clubs is the<br />

sheer diversity of<br />

its member base<br />

and their choice<br />

of rides. Every<br />

single car had its<br />

own unique flair,<br />

and every single<br />

owner had a story<br />

to share about<br />

how they came<br />

across their<br />

particular car.<br />

Owners proudly<br />

stood by their<br />

cars, eagerly waiting<br />

for somebody<br />

to spark a conversation<br />

just so they<br />

could share their<br />

story.<br />

They say that every Porsche has a personality, and<br />

the stories from Saturday morning were as unique as<br />

the owners themselves. I met owners who had been<br />

passed down their cars as a part of their family inheritance,<br />

owners who had posters of their dream cars on<br />

their bedroom wall as kids, and owners who collected<br />

rare and exotic cars just because of how passionate<br />

they are about their interests. There were members<br />

who took their cars out to the racetrack regularly to<br />

let them truly breathe, while others kept them in spotless<br />

condition as their garage queen. It didn’t seem to<br />

matter which car they were driving was or how much it<br />

cost, every owner still stood proudly by their car. This<br />

was a gathering where socio-economic boundaries did<br />

not exist. Enthusiasts left their differences at home and<br />

came together for a unifying passion: their love for cars.<br />

I’ve been involved in the car scene for several years<br />

now, and I really have to say that nothing comes close<br />

to a PCA event. The sheer number of cars and the<br />

dedication of the volunteers who work countless hours<br />

to make these events possible does not go unnoticed.<br />

Ultimately however, it comes down to the passion of<br />

the owners, who wake up bright and early on a Saturday<br />

morning to share in their love for cars. Fifty-five<br />

years in, and the Maverick Region has only the sky as<br />

the limit. I can’t wait to see what comes next!<br />

O<br />

n Saturday, December 2, the Plano<br />

Christmas Cops Program had a very special<br />

delivery of toys, clothes, baby items,<br />

gift cards, and even batteries for the over<br />

300 families they support each holiday season.<br />

Our Maverick Region had 82 cars gather at the<br />

Walmart parking lot off Dallas Parkway in Plano.<br />

Bill Kruder and Debi Gibson, along with a Christmas<br />

tree atop their 356, led us on a 10-mile drive<br />

to the Plano Police Department on 14th Street.<br />

To begin the drive, we had the help of the Plano<br />

PD to navigate traffic and get the entire group<br />

started together. Several stop lights along the<br />

route meant our group of 82 Porsches broke up<br />

into smaller groups, but that never reduced the<br />

amount of holiday cheer we all had to give. Some<br />

members dressed the part in holiday sweaters<br />

and Santa hats, although the spring-like weather<br />

could have supported holiday shorts instead.<br />

Even Rudolph’s nose and antlers joined in on the<br />

fun. Okay, that nose was placed by my husband<br />

Tom, who loves to celebrate the holidays! But I’m<br />

sure Rudolph and Santa would have approved of<br />

the effort.<br />

Reaching our destination, we were greeted by<br />

members of the Plano PD, who directed each and<br />

every one to drive through the drop off location<br />

where we were able to deposit our unwrapped<br />

presents. Over 250 donations and $1800 in gift<br />

cards were made to the Plano Christmas Cops<br />

families that day, including TeddyG, who stuck<br />

his head out of his ride’s sunroof for part of the<br />

drive. Thanks Jimmy and Phyllis Gallegos for<br />

transporting TeddyG to his final destination.<br />

Seeing the generosity from the members set<br />

the tone for the beginning of a joyous Holiday<br />

season for many families who otherwise might<br />

not have presents to give to their children and<br />

family members. The Maverick Region members<br />

are truly very generous and thoughtful.<br />

Founders Day 2017: The 55th Edition was the Biggest Yet!<br />

By Carey Spreen, Region Secretary<br />

nyone who attended the Founders Day<br />

A<br />

banquet in 2012, Maverick Region’s 50th<br />

anniversary celebration, will remember that<br />

it was a big affair, with about 150 people<br />

in attendance in the Grand Ballroom at Texas Motor<br />

Speedway.<br />

Five years on, Founders Day 2017 broke that record<br />

handily, with almost 200 Mavericks enjoying their Saturday<br />

evening as guests of Texas Harley-Davidson in<br />

Bedford. The banquet was the final of three events, all<br />

held on December 2, celebrating Maverick Region’s<br />

55th anniversary. You read about the other two events<br />

on the previous two page in <strong>Slipstream</strong>, so this story will<br />

focus on the banquet.<br />

Traditionally, Founders Day has been a dressy affair,<br />

held in a restaurant or banquet room, where Maverick<br />

Region board members recognized the year’s achievements<br />

and milestones, and gave out an award or ten,<br />

while region members had drinks and dinner while<br />

mingling with friends new and old, some of whom they<br />

may not have seen since the previous Founders Day. A<br />

Silent Auction was usually part of the event, with the<br />

proceeds going to charity.<br />

This year, our Founders Day Committee, consisting<br />

of Social Co-Chairs Tracy Robertson and Debi Gibson,<br />

along with Mavs & Mochas Chair Bill Kruder, decided<br />

to try something new: a more casual affair at a distinctly<br />

non-traditional location. Good call on both counts!<br />

Texas Harley-Davidson was a unique venue, with lots<br />

of space for ogling vehicles of both two-wheeled and<br />

four-wheeled varieties. As the largest H-D dealer and<br />

showroom in Texas, the facility covers over 72,000<br />

square feet, with a large portion of that being the main<br />

showroom. Most of the bikes on display were relocated<br />

to make room for tables, but a few bikes remained on<br />

display, and a few times during the evening, one of the<br />

sales people fired one up, turning heads and pausing<br />

conversations.<br />

By now you may be wondering why a club that fancies<br />

little German cars and SUVs would hold an event<br />

at a motorcycle dealer. As it turns out, there are two<br />

connections. First, under the name “Revolution Engine”,<br />

in 2002 development partner Porsche Engineering<br />

designed and built a new V2 engine for the “V-Rod”<br />

model of the American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson,<br />

their first water-cooled engine. Second,<br />

Adam Smith, who owns this and several other Harley<br />

dealerships, also owns a Carrera GT (yes, the one with<br />

the screaming V-10) and is a Maverick himself. Many<br />

thanks to Adam for graciously hosting our event!<br />

An open bar (yes, free drinks!) was a very popular<br />

feature of the evening, as was the meal, catered by Pecan<br />

Lodge, serving pulled pork and smoked chicken.<br />

And let’s not forget the all-natural popsicles for dessert,<br />

provided by Steel City Pops.<br />

The Silent Auction was of course a part of the evening,<br />

with 113 unique products and services just waiting<br />

to be bid upon. Another feature of recent Founders<br />

Days is the Photo of the Year contest, which consisted<br />

of 12 outstanding Porsche-related photographs taken<br />

by Mavericks throughout the past year.<br />

People’s Choice Top Ten Car Show. When was the<br />

last time you saw four 356s and a Carrera GT in the<br />

same place? Those five very unique Porsche models<br />

were joined by 200 other Mavericks and their Porsches.<br />

The results were listed on page 18.<br />

Photo of the Month contest. The following members,<br />

each of which were featured in one of the past 12<br />

issues of <strong>Slipstream</strong>, had their photo on<br />

display during the banquet. Founders<br />

Day attendees voted for their favorite,<br />

which turned out to be David Temming’s<br />

photo of a Black Porsche 911<br />

Cabriolet featured in the April 2017<br />

issue. You can view all twelve photos at<br />

Almost 200 Maveriock members enjoyed our evening 55th<br />

Beckie Gomer won the raffle for the Maverick Region<br />

logo quilt created by Ginger Heureman.<br />

And the big news of the evening was that the traditional<br />

(since 1976) Richard F. Selcer Memorial Award,<br />

which has been given to the Maverick (or pair of Mavericks)<br />

that went above and beyond for the club that<br />

year, has been retired. Replacing it is the James Shoffit<br />

Maverick of the Year award, in recognition of James’<br />

many contributions over the years, not only to Maverick<br />

Region, and PCA Zone 5, but to the Porsche Club<br />

of America itself.<br />

The inaugural recipient of this award is Bill Orr,<br />

marketing guru extraordinaire, and all-around busy<br />

guy for the club. Bill’s accomplishments even for just<br />

this year are too many to mention in this article, but<br />

rest assured, he earned it.<br />

Fun awards. Some obscure (and some not so obscure)<br />

recognition for some of our newer members<br />

added to the festivities:<br />

Matt Wilson: “Westside Story”<br />

(coordinates our Fort Worth area Mavs & Mochas)<br />

Greg Ward: “Father Knows Best”<br />

(brings his daughter, Lisa, to many Mav events)<br />

Carolle Liu: “Cone Killer”<br />

(new to autocrossing this year, Carolle hit NO cones!)<br />

Landon Stogner: “Father Knows Best”<br />

(brings his two sons to many Maverick events)<br />

Bob Molyneux: “The Buck Stops Here”<br />

(unfortunate deer meeting at the PCA Palooza)<br />

Bill Orr: “The Man Who Knows Too Much”<br />

(knows, or will find out, the answer to all things Porsche)<br />

Derrick Tate: “The Apprentice”<br />

(helps at most events since joining the club in April)<br />

Andrew Barber: “Candid Camera”<br />

(lending his camera and keen eye for composition at many<br />

Maverick events)<br />

To sum up: the best-attended and possibly the most<br />

unusual Founders Day celebration is in the history<br />

book. We hope you can join us next year to be a part of<br />

<strong>2018</strong> history!<br />

Maverick Autocross Program for <strong>2018</strong><br />

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair<br />

Photos by LightSpeed Images<br />

he Maverick PCA Autocross<br />

program is a<br />

T<br />

low-risk way to learn<br />

and refine car control<br />

skills in any Porsche. It is an excellent<br />

way to learn car control skills<br />

that will come in handy every time<br />

you drive your Porsche to Mavs &<br />

Mochas, on our Tours, at Drivers’<br />

Education events, and even when<br />

driving your other car. You will<br />

quickly learn about proper seating<br />

position, looking ahead, threshold<br />

braking, and precise car control<br />

while you try to execute a perfect<br />

lap on a pylon-marked course in<br />

the safety of a large parking lot,<br />

one car at a time, where your runs<br />

will be timed to the thousandth of<br />

a second. Unless you do something<br />

very unusual, the only risk to your<br />

car is contact with a rubber cone<br />

that can be easily cleaned off.<br />

Our region puts on events in<br />

partnership with the Equipe Rapide<br />

Sports Car Club (autocross.com) at<br />

sites like Lone Star Park in Grand<br />

Prairie and Mineral Wells Airpark,<br />

about 40 miles west of Fort Worth.<br />

This brings us a highly experienced<br />

team that puts on a first-class event,<br />

into which we get to include our 10<br />

PCA classes.<br />

Maverick autocrossers can always<br />

find some shade when taking<br />

a break between run groups<br />

Autocrossing is the most fun you can have in your Porsche in 60 seconds or less!<br />

There is an autocross school on<br />

Saturday, March 17 that will fill up<br />

quickly, so be sure to watch for this<br />

event to open. There are guided<br />

novice course walks at every event,<br />

ride along instructors are available,<br />

and you are encouraged to ride in<br />

the right seat with others to help accelerate<br />

your driving skills learning<br />

curve.<br />

Most Porsches can navigate the<br />

whole autocross course after just<br />

one shift to second gear. The next<br />

60 to 80 seconds are such a rush<br />

that some drivers barely take time<br />

to breathe. You do this six to eight<br />

times after just walking the unique<br />

course found at each event. The<br />

rest of the day you will meet lots of<br />

interesting people, take a shift running<br />

part of the event, whether it<br />

is registration, tech inspection, or<br />

corner station duty, and enjoy an<br />

exciting assortment of interesting<br />

cars at speed.<br />

Registration is available on line<br />

or on site. Arrive about 8 am and<br />

bring a lunch or snacks with you,<br />

since there is not always an “official”<br />

lunch break. After tech inspection,<br />

walk the course on your own,<br />

or do so with the formal novice<br />

walk-through for some additional<br />

insights. Cars start running about<br />

10 am, and awards are presented<br />

about 4 pm. Look for the <strong>2018</strong><br />

schedule elsewhere in every issue<br />

of <strong>Slipstream</strong>, on our website, and at<br />

autocross.com.<br />

Gallegos’ Tour of the Porsche Museum<br />

By Jim Gallegos, Region Volunteers Chair<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

I<br />

t was a beautiful day in August, 2017 when<br />

Phyllis and I hailed a Mercedes-Benz taxi<br />

from Hotel Marin in Stuttgart, Germany<br />

and headed to the Porsche Museum. We<br />

had just spent ten<br />

wonderful days in<br />

Norway (Bergen,<br />

Flaum, Lom, and<br />

Oslo) visiting our<br />

Norwegian family<br />

(OK, I’m only<br />

related through<br />

my beautiful Norwegian<br />

wife, and<br />

contrary to popular<br />

belief I am not<br />

from southern<br />

Norway!). When<br />

we planned the<br />

Norway trip, we<br />

thought it would<br />

be great to end<br />

our adventure<br />

Dramatic sculpture welcomes visitors<br />

in Stuttgart at<br />

the Porsche Museum.<br />

The excitement of visiting the museum was like seeing<br />

Santa for the first time! Luckily, Phyllis was all in for<br />

a day-long tour of the Porsche museum. Yes, we spent<br />

the whole day there!<br />

We bought our first Porsche,<br />

a 1999 911 (996), black with the<br />

large aero kit (affectionately<br />

known as the “big taco”!) in 2014<br />

which ended up on the cover of<br />

the May 2015 <strong>Slipstream</strong>. I emailed<br />

George Luxbacher, who had taken<br />

the picture of the 911 aero kit<br />

and verified it was our car. What<br />

a thrill to end up on the cover of<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong>. Coincidentally, it was at<br />

one of the first DFW Porsche Cars<br />

and Coffee events, organized by<br />

the one and only Tony Lisotta. We<br />

then purchased a 2005 Porsche<br />

911 997.1 from Park Place Porsche<br />

with a whopping 22K miles!<br />

Our museum tour started with<br />

meeting our personal guide early<br />

that morning. I wanted to hear<br />

every detail possible about Ferdinand<br />

Porsche and his wonderful<br />

Uta showing Phyllis a famous rally Porsche<br />

Jimmyg and Phyllis (right) with museum guide Uta<br />

legacy. Our guide Uta knew every detail about every<br />

Porsche in the museum. As she described the details,<br />

small crowds gathered to hear her extensive knowledge<br />

as we stopped at almost every car on display. I took over<br />

one hundred pictures!<br />

After our three hour tour was over, we ate lunch<br />

and had a glass of wine at the museum deli. I headed<br />

back into the museum for more<br />

pictures. We ended the day with a<br />

short visit to the Porsche dealership<br />

across the street. They had<br />

the best of the best Porsches on<br />

the showroom floor and were very<br />

welcoming.<br />

Yes, it was a trip of a lifetime<br />

that we hope to repeat in a few<br />

years. After all, you can never see<br />

enough of the Porsche product.<br />

We shared our pictures on Facebook<br />

and got rave reviews - be<br />

sure to take a look at those. If you<br />

get the chance, this is a visit not to<br />

be missed!<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

nd yet another new year is upon us -<br />

A<br />

welcome to <strong>2018</strong>! As has been my habit for<br />

the past few <strong>January</strong> issues of <strong>Slipstream</strong>, I’m<br />

including some suggestions for your new<br />

year resolutions that might be a bit easier for you to<br />

keep than the list you’ve already created (and possibly<br />

broken if you’re like me).<br />

I’ll let Stirling Moss set some context for what<br />

follows: “Motion is tranquility.”<br />

* Bring joy and excitement to yourself and those<br />

around you by driving your Porsche each day, week,<br />

month, or as often as you can.<br />

* Participate in at least one more Maverick and/or<br />

PCA event than you did in 2017.<br />

* Take photograph(s) and write an article about<br />

your first, favorite, or most recent Porsche experience<br />

for <strong>Slipstream</strong>.<br />

* Our club is built on volunteers and is the epitome<br />

of the PCA motto: “It’s not just the cars, it’s the<br />

people”. In fact, take a moment in this new year<br />

and look again at page 4 and familiarize yourself<br />

with the many members who are volunteering<br />

in ongoing roles to ensure the Maverick Region<br />

offers events and activities that meet the interests of all<br />

of our members.<br />

* If you’ve enjoyed participating in our Region<br />

events in the past, please consider if you’re now ready<br />

to give back to the club by volunteering in one of many<br />

events that can always use an extra hand (or two). Send<br />

an email to volunteers@mavpca.org with your interest.<br />

* While you are online, why not sharpen your Porsche<br />

trivia skills by challenging yourself to either know, or<br />

find, the answer to the many interesting questions<br />

Jerry DeFeo provides each month. The Trivia quizzes<br />

can be found under the News tab on the club website.<br />

* Take an open-ended, or even fully planned, road<br />

trip. For ideas, look no further than the five Maverick<br />

members who shared their recent experiences<br />

attending the PCA Palooza in Eureka Springs this<br />

November on pages 6-8 in this issue. As you can see,<br />

there are plenty of interesting roads to drive and sites<br />

to see in the route to and from Palooza, in<br />

addition to participating in that neighboring<br />

Region event.<br />

I hope that <strong>2018</strong> will be a great driving year<br />

for you and your Porsche. Carpe Viam!<br />

Treat your portfolio like you would your Porsche<br />

You wouldn’t leave your Porsche in the care of anyone but a certified service technician.<br />

Shouldn’t your financial portfolio receive similar qualified attention?<br />
