Sprockets: You Never Know Who You Might Meet at a Maverick Event<br />

By David Robertson, Region President<br />

s mentioned in the past, I am always amazed<br />

A<br />

at the different walks of life that people in<br />

our club hail from. Club members are here<br />

from the four corners of the earth and everywhere<br />

in between. It’s always fun to discover when<br />

a member I have known for years has an interesting<br />

background, or I learn something I never knew about<br />

them while we are casually chatting at a Maverick event.<br />

Passion and enthusiasm are infectious, and I really enjoy<br />

talking to all of our members who are passionate<br />

about anything they do, whether it is the cars that they<br />

love, their chosen career path, or a cause that they support.<br />

Artists, teachers, doctors, lawyers, business owners,<br />

and even a few oil barons are all within our ranks,<br />

and we all love to get together and talk about our main<br />

shared interest which is our cars!<br />

With this shared passion of ours, we have the opportunity<br />

to meet people that can give us insight into<br />

a world with which we may not be so familiar. As an<br />

example, there seems to be a big connection with<br />

Porsches and airplane pilots. Perhaps the thrill of flying<br />

a fighter jet, commanding an airline aircraft, or flying<br />

famous people around the globe translates well to the<br />

thrill of driving a Porsche. I will never fully understand<br />

the connection, as my eyesight kept me from getting<br />

too far with this pursuit in my youth, but it is a lot of<br />

fun to hear these folks discuss their exploits when we<br />

are together at a Maverick event.<br />

In this club I have met so many interesting people<br />

from a very diverse set of backgrounds, and I am quite<br />

a newcomer compared to most. As a newbie and a<br />

Porsche neophyte, I struck up a conversation with<br />

a gentleman at one of our events who turned out to<br />

be Peter Schutz, the Porsche CEO who saved the 911!<br />

(Yes, I was and I am still quite embarrassed that I didn’t<br />

know who he was at the time). At the next Maverick<br />

event just ask and listen, you will be amazed at what interesting<br />

things you will discover about our members!<br />

944. As a fan of the 944, Ginger volunteered to organize<br />

the November 2017 Mavs & Mochas 944 35th<br />

anniversary special event, and through her efforts we<br />

had 30 beautiful 944s in the showcase. Ginger is a great<br />

example of the great things that happen through our<br />

volunteers here in the Maverick Region PCA.<br />

MAV OF THE MONTH: Ginger Heuerman<br />

Our Mav of the Month is Ginger Heuerman. Ginger<br />

participated in our Halloween Rally back in 2016 and<br />

was motivated to create a quilt as a gift to the club. The<br />

quilt took Ginger 10 months to craft, and it turned out<br />

to be such a work of art that a decision was made to<br />

raffle it off for charity. The raffle was a huge success,<br />

and generated almost $1700, which was donated to the<br />

Patriot Paws charity. While Ginger was creating the<br />

quilt, she and her husband began attending the<br />

monthly Mavs & Mochas events in their highly modified<br />

50 Years With PCA: Bill and Hertha Hughes<br />

As told to Carey Spreen, Region Secretary<br />

ill Hughes became interested in a VW after<br />

B<br />

he graduated from high school in Joliet, IL<br />

in 1956. That summer, on a European tour,<br />

he enjoyed touring the Volkswagen factory<br />

in Wolfsburg, Germany. So when it came time to buy<br />

his first car, he purchased a ’61 VW Beetle.<br />

Following graduation from the University of Illinois<br />

– Champaign/Urbana with a BA in Mathematics and<br />

Physics, Bill went to work for Boeing in Seattle on the<br />

Minuteman project. With his Beetle’s manual transmission,<br />

a 1200cc engine, and 40 horsepower, Bill had no<br />

problem climbing the steepest Seattle hills with ease.<br />

But whenever he took the Beetle for service at University<br />

Motors, he couldn’t help but notice the Porsches<br />

on the showroom floor; in particular, there was a 1962<br />

Roadster that caught his eye.<br />

In 1964, Bill transferred with Boeing to Huntsville,<br />

AL to work on the Apollo program, doing Saturn V firststage<br />

trajectory design. By 1965, he was making $8,800<br />

a year, while the base price of the 1965 356SC coupe<br />

was about $4,700, so he figured he could finally afford<br />

one. Conveniently, there was a Porsche dealer, Continental<br />

Cars, in Huntsville, so he bought the car you see<br />

in the photo accompanying this article: a Dolphin Grey<br />

1965 356SC. (Bill wanted a silver one, but Porsche was<br />

experiencing issues with the silver paint, so Dolphin<br />

Grey was the replacement color.)<br />

Bill was particularly excited<br />

that his 356SC represented the<br />

performance and development<br />

peak for the Typ 356 model in<br />

its last year of production, having<br />

been produced for 17 years,<br />

from 1948-1965. He named his<br />

car the Grey Ghost after one of<br />

his favorite ‘50s TV shows (The<br />

Gray Ghost), about Major John<br />

Mosby, whose Mosby’s Raiders<br />

created havoc behind Union<br />

lines in the Civil War.<br />

In 1967, Bill met with a<br />

group of Porsche owners in<br />

Huntsville, who petitioned PCA<br />

to form a local region. In 1968,<br />

PCA chartered the Heart O’ Dixie<br />

Region, based in Huntsville,<br />

replacing a dormant region formerly<br />

based in Birmingham. It<br />

included Alabama, Mississippi,<br />

southern Tennessee, and west<br />

Florida. Bill was one of the 15<br />

6 <strong>February</strong><br />

Bill and Hertha Hughes with their grandchildren<br />

charter members. To communicate with its far-flung<br />

members, Bill volunteered to write a mimeographed<br />

newsletter, which he named Der Wanderer. Bill also<br />

served as President of the Heart of O’ Dixie Region in<br />

1970.<br />

It was during this period that Bill met Hertha in<br />

Huntsville, after she returned in 1967 from her Fulbright<br />

Scholarship in Applied Mathematics in Germany.<br />

She also drove a VW Beetle, purchased in 1966.<br />

In Huntsville, Hertha went to work for IBM’s Federal<br />

Systems Division as an engineer, doing flight program<br />

design work for the Saturn V rocket, supporting multiple<br />

Apollo missions (including Apollo 11) as well as<br />

the Skylab program. As the space program was winding<br />

down, Bill took an educational leave of absence<br />

in 1970 from Boeing, returning to graduate school at<br />

the University of Michigan. Bill and Hertha married<br />

in 1971 and moved together to Ann Arbor, MI, so Bill<br />

could complete his master’s degree in Public Policy.<br />

Hertha transferred with IBM as a systems engineer into<br />

a branch office in Detroit, supporting Chrysler and<br />

Education customers. After graduation, Bill was hired<br />

by U-M in their Academic Planning Office.<br />

While they lived in Ann Arbor, the Hughes were in<br />

the PCA Southeast Michigan Region. At this time, the<br />

356 Registry was formed to perpetuate interest in the<br />

Typ 356. It is much more informal<br />

and less competitive than<br />

PCA. From Ann Arbor, they<br />

enjoyed local 356 Holidays,<br />

essentially long weekends, to<br />

Columbus, OH and Indianapolis,<br />

IN, where they were able to<br />

drive their car on Indianapolis<br />

Motor Speedway. What a thrill!<br />

Best of all, their son Erik was<br />

born in 1974, and their lives<br />

were enriched and transformed<br />

forever.<br />

For career opportunities, the<br />

Hughes made two more moves.<br />

In 1980, they moved to Darien,<br />

CT where they were in the PCA<br />

Connecticut Valley Region. Bill<br />

joined Columbia University in<br />

NYC, and Hertha worked at<br />

IBM’s Data Processing Division<br />

HQ. Finally, in 1983 they moved<br />

to Dallas and the Maverick Region.<br />

Here Bill joined SMU and<br />

Hertha managed several IBM

The Grey Ghost - 1965 356SC<br />

technology programs, later leading IBM’s Worldwide<br />

Business Partner Program for Software.<br />

In addition to the 356SC, Bill currently owns a silver<br />

1994 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet, which they enjoy driving<br />

when A/C makes it so much more comfortable. And,<br />

for a few years, Bill owned a 1973 914 2.0, so he could<br />

do some autocrossing.<br />

In the PCA Maverick Region, Bill, Hertha, and Erik<br />

were very active in the rally program in the mid ‘80s,<br />

with Bill trying his hand at running a Hare and Hound<br />

rally. Bill and Hertha enjoyed working as volunteers at<br />

the 1987 D/FW Parade, and also participated in Porsche<br />

Parades in Colorado Springs, Aspen, and Steamboat<br />

Springs. In addition, they particularly enjoyed traveling<br />

many times with other Mavs to Lafayette, LA for a<br />

multi-region event hosted by PCA Whiskey Bay Region.<br />

They participated in a murder mystery event staged in<br />

Jefferson, TX by Diane Butler, from Whiskey Bay, with<br />

Hertha and Erik surprisingly solving the mystery. They<br />

have enjoyed 356 Holidays in Mystic CT, Taos NM, Sedona<br />

AZ, Charleston SC, and Durango CO, and have<br />

traveled to local 356 events in Helen, GA and Franklin,<br />

TN.<br />

In 1987, local 356 enthusiasts formed the DFW 356<br />

Tub Club. Bill and Hertha have been very active in this<br />

club, particularly after retiring in 2002-2003. Bill handles<br />

club communications, while Hertha has organized<br />

many club road trips. The club meets every month<br />

for breakfast across DFW and beyond. It’s the people<br />

that make this club so special -- both the men and the<br />

women. Every year, driving tours are planned for the<br />

spring and fall. Hertha organized a tour to Big Bend<br />

National Park, and has also planned and led three trips<br />

to Arkansas: one trip to Mt. Magazine (highest mountain<br />

in Arkansas) and the Pig Trail; another to Queen<br />

Wilhelmina State Park and the Talemina Parkway; and<br />

a third to the Ozark Folk Arts Center. Normally, the<br />

trips include 10 to 12 cars with 20 to 24 people. All love<br />

to drive their old cars! Bill definitely believes Porsches<br />

were built to be driven!<br />

In 2004, Bill and Hertha had an exciting trip to the<br />

Daytona International Speedway and caught up with<br />

several of Bill’s old friends from Huntsville. Very special<br />

was the time they spent with Jim Watson from Lewisburg,<br />

TN who sold Bill his first Porsche in Huntsville,<br />

and has worked on both of Bill’s current Porsches over<br />

the years.<br />

And now, Bill and Hertha are proud grandparents<br />

of three grandchildren: Kathryn (11 years old) and the<br />

twins, Erin (8) and Jason (8). These are Erik’s kids who<br />

live in Raleigh, NC. Since 2013, the Hughes now have<br />

a second home in Raleigh and regularly travel there<br />

3-4 times a year to spend as much time as possible with<br />

their grandchildren, going to soccer games, to band<br />

concerts, and on excursions. What a special joy it is to<br />

be grandparents and to be able to share this time with<br />

them! Erik is now North American Director for Manufacturing<br />

Sciences at Biogen, a major pharmaceutical<br />

company, and his wife, Sarah, is a medical doctor, licensed<br />

in internal medicine and pediatrics.<br />

Over the last 50 years, Bill and Hertha have loved<br />

the journey they’ve experienced through ownership of<br />

their Porsches. It’s always been the people they met<br />

and befriended along the way that have made it so enjoyable<br />

and worthwhile.<br />

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations<br />

By Bill Kruder, Region Advertising Chair<br />

his month takes on<br />

T<br />

a different twist than<br />

most on how I met this<br />

Porsche enthusiast;<br />

frankly, up until writing, this we<br />

had never met. The reason for our<br />

meeting was in large part thanks to<br />

John Labunski, “Pops”’ son-in-law.<br />

John and Pops attended Mavs &<br />

Mochas at Highland Park Village as<br />

part of our Founders Day Celebration.<br />

Upon arriving, they were surprised<br />

to see some 200 Porsches, including<br />

several 356s. As they walked<br />

amongst the cars, Pops commented<br />

“I bought that one, which was our<br />

356 coupe with the tree on it,” and<br />

then over breakfast the memories<br />

came flooding back as Pops proceeded<br />

to tell John stories of his<br />

past cars. John just had to share this<br />

story of a man and his love affair<br />

with Porsches, maybe the longest<br />

Porsche owner he knows (back to<br />

1958), and I knew immediately I<br />

needed to share this conversation.<br />

So here is the next individual in<br />

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

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

Albert “Pops” Magazzine,<br />

Porsche Enthusiast since 1958,<br />

Owner today of a 2011 (997)<br />

Bill Kruder: So are you originally<br />

from here?<br />

Pops: No I grew up in<br />

Youngstown, a small steel city in<br />

Ohio between Pittsburgh and<br />

Cleveland.<br />

BK: And how did you find yourself<br />

in Dallas?<br />

Pops: Well, back in the day, I was<br />

in the Air Force and stationed at<br />

Perrin Air Station in Sherman, and<br />

eventually, years later, after lots of<br />

moving around the world, ended<br />

back here, and now I call Dallas<br />

home.<br />

12 <strong>February</strong><br />

BK: And what did you do in the Air<br />

Force?<br />

Pops: I was a fighter pilot and<br />

trainer, flying the early T-33 Shooting<br />

Star, which was essentially the<br />

training craft for the P-80, and later<br />

the F-4 fighters.<br />

BK: And did you make a career out<br />

of it?<br />

Pops: I did. I was in for 20 years<br />

and 1 month, retiring in 1975.<br />

BK: What did you do as a second<br />

career after retiring?<br />

Pops: DFW Airport had just<br />

opened in 1973 and I was hired<br />

shortly thereafter, working there<br />

for nearly 38 years in various jobs,<br />

primarily in operations, and ended<br />

up in “Code enforcement” on DFW<br />

construction projects.<br />

BK: Ok so let’s talk cars. Were you<br />

always a Porsche guy?<br />

Pops: Heck no! Where I was<br />

from it was all American cars. We<br />

were into muscle cars. It wasn’t till I<br />

joined the Air Force that I even really<br />

paid any attention to Porsches,<br />

and that was because I found myself<br />

stationed in Germany, and all<br />

the pilots were buying them.<br />

BK: So what was your first Porsche?<br />

Pops: That was a 1958 356A<br />

coupe; I was stationed in Germany<br />

and ordered it there. I paid<br />

$3200 cash for it, which was a crazy<br />

amount of money<br />

considering that I was<br />

making $250 a month,<br />

and that included my<br />

flight pay (laughing).<br />

BK: Tell me more<br />

about that car?<br />

Pops: It was Red<br />

with Savannah interior,<br />

had chrome<br />

knock-off wheels, a radio,<br />

and an extra side<br />

mirror as the only options. Think<br />

the knock off wheels were a $100<br />

option, and the extra mirror cost<br />

me another $3 (laughing). I still<br />

have the sticker and receipt.<br />

BK: So you brought it home with<br />

you?<br />

Pops: I did! I had it shipped to<br />

New York, and in those days they<br />

would come off the ship and be<br />

pushed by hand around the lot<br />

until picked up. Well somewhere<br />

along the line they dented it in a<br />

couple spots. I then picked it up in<br />

NY and drove it the 1500 miles to<br />

Dallas. Once here, when I needed<br />

to get it repaired, the only shop<br />

doing work on Porsches was Van<br />

Winkle Pontiac of all places. As I recall<br />

it was located in the city around<br />

Oak Lawn and Avondale maybe.<br />

BK: And how long did you have it?<br />

Pops: I sold it in 1961; I was being<br />

shipped off to Japan, so I drove<br />

to California and sold it for I think<br />

$900.<br />

BK: So what was next?<br />

Pops: Well, some time had<br />

passed and I found myself in<br />

England in 1974. I bought a 1965<br />

356C and I don’t have to tell you<br />

how much rust this car had, having<br />

spent 10 years on the roads there.<br />

I brought it back to the States with<br />

me and ending up selling it for I<br />

think $1500.<br />

Pop’s Red 1958 356A coupe

BK: But I understand that wasn’t<br />

your last 356?<br />

Pops: No, there was yet one<br />

more. At this point I had retired<br />

from the Air Force and lived now in<br />

Dallas; this was 1976. I found a 1961<br />

B, black with the double grill, at essentially<br />

a junk yard in<br />

Weatherford. I bought<br />

it and had it running<br />

pretty well and decided<br />

to basically restore it.<br />

I drove it up to Ohio,<br />

where I have a nephew<br />

who restored cars, so<br />

he took on the project.<br />

We restored the body,<br />

taking out all the fillers,<br />

and changed the<br />

color, painting it Fish<br />

Silver Grey. I loved that<br />

’61; I drove it for about<br />

15-16 years and sold it<br />

in 1992.<br />

BK: And thinking you did a little<br />

better selling this one than the previous<br />

two?<br />

Pops: Yes we did! (laughing) I<br />

think I had about $15,000 in it and<br />

sold it for $45,000.<br />

John and Pops at the December Founders Day Mavs & Mochas<br />

BK: Then I hear you jumped into the<br />

modern era of Porsches?<br />

Pops: I did. I bought a 1998<br />

Boxster, and still today drive a 2011<br />

Cream White 997 as my daily driver,<br />

with my co-pilot Dutch.<br />

And that’s the story<br />

of how a young serviceman<br />

finds himself attracted<br />

to a funny little<br />

car and the car guy lifestyle,<br />

and soon finds<br />

himself in a lifelong<br />

love affair with Porsche.<br />

I’d like to also thank<br />

Lieutenant Colonel<br />

(Ret.) Albert Magazzine<br />

for his service around<br />

the world including<br />

Germany, Japan, England,<br />

and Vietnam.<br />

Lastly for his long dedication<br />

to PCA and the<br />

Porsches he so loved<br />

and kept on the roads<br />

for us to enjoy today.<br />


Maverick Tech Sessions: What to Expect<br />

By Michael Baynton, Region Tech Sessions Chair<br />

ave you ever wondered . . .<br />

H<br />

• Should I use conventional or synthetic<br />

motor oil?<br />

• How do I best protect my car’s paint?<br />

• What brands of tires are approved for Porsches?<br />

• What are coil-overs, and do I really need them?<br />

Our beloved Porsches are fantastically fun, capable,<br />

and well-engineered vehicles. And as such, they can<br />

also be highly complex and require very specific care<br />

and handling to optimize their reliability and performance.<br />

But that complexity often leads to confusion,<br />

conflicting advice, and a knowledge base beyond that<br />

of the typical Porsche owner.<br />

To help remedy that—and to help educate and inform<br />

our members—our Mav PCA Tech Sessions are<br />

designed to provide practical and useful information<br />

on a wide range of topics.<br />

They are casual affairs, with no previous knowledge<br />

needed to benefit. In fact, the opposite is true:<br />

bring your questions and have them answered by our<br />

experts! These tech sessions are typically not designed<br />

to be hands-on, so you won’t be working on your own<br />

Porsche. Think “FYI,” not “DIY.” So join us for some<br />

coffee, camaraderie, and a wealth of useful information<br />

and tips. But sign up quickly—these sessions have<br />

limited enrollment based on venue size, and they fill<br />

up fast.<br />

We are still building out our schedule for <strong>2018</strong>, and<br />

we plan to have 4-6 sessions throughout the year. So<br />

keep an eye on our events calendar for upcoming<br />

sessions. And if you have any suggestions or questions,<br />

please don’t hesitate to email us at techsessions@<br />

mavpca.org.<br />

wouldn’t live. She and I had not<br />

seen each other in 10 years. My<br />

daughter and I decided on the spur<br />

of the moment to drive to Estes<br />

Park, CO and surprise her with a<br />

visit to cheer her up before her 2nd<br />

chemo. This bear and sign guard<br />

Paul Moseley: Being a massive<br />

Steve McQueen fan, every year during<br />

Monterey Car Week, I try to say<br />

something constructive to Chad<br />

McQueen. This year in Carmel we<br />

ended up side-by-side on the sidewalk<br />

as cars lined up for display,<br />

and right in front of us were two<br />

re-creations of Stan Mott’s Cyclops<br />

fantasy racer made famous in his<br />

stories for Road and Track magazine.<br />

“What in the hell is that?,” Mc-<br />

Queen asked me. Being a 60’s R&T<br />

font of knowledge, I got to explain<br />

the whole Cyclops thing to Chad.<br />

I think you’ll agree that our<br />

Porsches and membership in the<br />

Maverick Region make for some<br />

memorable times for all of us.<br />

Maverick Driving Tours: What First-Timers Can Expect<br />

By Mark Pitarresi and Tom Gomer, Region Tours Co-Chairs<br />

averick Region Driving Tours are a gathering<br />

of members and guests who meet up<br />

M<br />

at a defined starting location and drive<br />

together along an interesting route. Tours<br />

generally last about three hours and run around 60-100<br />

miles in length. After the tour, we meet at a destination<br />

that usually involves food and beverages.<br />

After signing up for your first Maverick Region Tour,<br />

you will receive an email at the end of the third day<br />

before the tour. The email will have all the necessary<br />

information for you to participate in the tour. You will<br />

definitely want to arrive early to socialize with other<br />

members. The energy level is high on these tours, and<br />

you will feel a buzz in the air!<br />

We will have a separate Drivers’ Briefing just for<br />

members that have never been on a Maverick Tour at<br />

each event. After the Drivers’ Briefing, we will depart<br />

in groups of 14 cars or less. Each group leaves the starting<br />

point in 2-5 minute intervals. Each group will have<br />

a Group Leader that will guide the group throughout<br />

the route so navigation aids will not be needed. While<br />

driving within the group, you will need to follow closely,<br />

but at a safe distance, generally 2-3 seconds behind the<br />

car in front or one car length for every 10 mph.<br />

It is important to slow down if the car behind you<br />

falls behind, so that both you and the car behind can<br />

see each other. You will follow the car in front of you<br />

safely without letting the car behind you get too far<br />

away. It is important to always make sure you can always<br />

see the car behind you in your rear view mirror.<br />

Maverick Region Tours promote safety. If you feel<br />

the group is driving too fast to keep up, simply slow<br />

down and the group will do the same. Passing is not<br />

acceptable on our tours unless the car in front has signaled<br />

the car behind and it is safe to pass them. The<br />

Always great routes on our Driving Tours (Photo by Bill Orr)<br />

Maverick Region Tours program is one of the most well<br />

attended programs in the country on a regular basis! As<br />

we Mavericks like to say...It’s about driving friendships!<br />

<strong>2018</strong> PCA Tour Changes:<br />

The <strong>2018</strong> PCA Minimum Tour Standards have been<br />

released. These are also our tour requirements within<br />

PCA. It will NOT be mandatory for our group leaders<br />

or sweeper cars to have co-drivers. This is because of<br />

the type of tours we provide. Our groups will, however,<br />

be limited to 14 cars including the Group Leader and<br />

Sweeper Car.<br />

We will also be using clubregistration.net for sign-up<br />

and attendee management. Our club already uses this<br />

site for event registration, and will have links on our<br />

website for registration. This will allow us to address<br />

new tour attendees separately from regular attendees<br />

via email easily. Our intention is to streamline the program<br />

to increase the overall quality of our tours.<br />

Another big change to our tours program will be<br />

adding a classic/antique group or groups. These new<br />

groups will be for classic/antique Porsches, and offer a<br />

more relaxed tour within those groups. The classic/<br />

antique group will be optional when signing up. We<br />

look forward to the <strong>2018</strong> Maverick Tours program and<br />

hope to see everyone at our first tour, scheduled for<br />

Sunday, March 25!<br />

Santa Boots: Maverick Region’s Work With the Boot Campaign<br />

By Meg Jones<br />

he Maverick Region of the Porsche Club<br />

T<br />

of America has been partnering with local<br />

nonprofits for more than 50 years, driving<br />

efforts of goodwill across the Dallas/Fort<br />

Worth Metroplex. In the 2017 holiday season, Maverick<br />

was honored to support, for the second year in a<br />

row, the Boot Campaign, a national military-focused<br />

non-profit dedicated to igniting the inner patriot in<br />

all Americans and providing life-improving programs<br />

to military families across the United States. Maverick’s<br />

support was specifically for Boot Campaign’s Santa<br />

Boots Program to surprise deserving military families<br />

with holiday boxes with customized gifts inside.<br />

“As a club, we are very proud to support the work of<br />

the Boot Campaign through the Santa Boots program.<br />

Their work to support and assist our military families’<br />

needs when they come home is making a difference,”<br />

said Maverick Region Treasurer Richard Solomon.<br />

For veteran and active duty families in need, the<br />

holidays can be particularly difficult. The Santa Boots<br />

Program, first introduced by Boot Campaign in 2015,<br />

has made a difference for more than 180 military families<br />

thus far, providing a joy-filled Christmas for veteran<br />

and active duty military families who may not have been<br />

able to afford Christmas gifts otherwise. According to<br />

Boot Campaign CEO Shelly Kirkland, money is often<br />

tight after deployments, and some military families<br />

have PCS orders or face service-related injuries. Without<br />

help around the holidays, many military families<br />

would go without the uplifting tradition and gifts they<br />

deserve.<br />

Patrizi family in Pearl Harbor, HI were referred to us by our<br />

partners at ASYMCA; father has recently returned to shore<br />

duty in Pearl Harbor after multiple overseas deployments<br />

“Thanks to Richard Solomon’s leadership and the<br />

patriots of the Maverick Region, Boot Campaign’s Santa<br />

Boots Program was able to share the holiday spirit<br />

with those who have served and sacrificed so much for<br />

us year-round,” said Kirkland. “We were able to broaden<br />

our impact and reach more families this year ever<br />

before!”<br />

This season, thanks to a new national partnership<br />

between the Boot Campaign’s Santa Boots Program<br />

and two other national non-profits serving the military:<br />

Armed Services YMCA and Operation Homefront,<br />

more than 80 military families in 27 states received<br />

benefitted from the effort.<br />

DIY: Repairing Your Porsche Key Transmitter<br />

By Charles Tolles and Tom Martin<br />

Photos courtesy of the Author<br />

o you have a Porsche key transmitter that<br />

D<br />

doesn’t function properly? Have you lost<br />

the ability to lock and unlock the doors of<br />

your Porsche with a simple button press, or<br />

to direct your trunks to open upon command?<br />

Malfunctioning key transmitter and<br />

exposed circuit board<br />

The solution to the malfunction may be as simple as<br />

a dead battery or a broken micro switch, or it could be<br />

more serious, such as a broken solder joint, or a failed<br />

proprietary integrated circuit. Other than a failed IC,<br />

chances are your Porsche key transmitter can be repaired.<br />

This would spare one a trip to the dealer for a<br />

new, and very expensive, factory key.<br />

I recently repaired a couple of key transmitters for<br />

a fellow Porsche owner, so thought I’d pass this info<br />

along. This key transmitter was from a 986 Boxster, the<br />

repair also applies for 996 keys and possibly other models<br />

as well.<br />

Symptoms: Both transmitters’ LEDs would flash<br />

when the buttons were pressed, but the result was either<br />

no response from the car, or an intermittent function.<br />

Battery would drain quickly.<br />

Test Procedure: Battery tested to confirm proper<br />

voltage output. All micro switches tested with a DVM<br />

set to continuity, and function confirmed. De-soldered<br />

and removed battery holder from the rear of the board.<br />

All solder joints inspected for breaks (this required a<br />

30x magnification inspection scope or equivalent; potential<br />

breaks cannot be seen with the naked eye).<br />

Source of Failure: Flexing of the circuit board from<br />

years of button<br />

presses resulted in<br />

broken solder joints<br />

at the rear of the circuit<br />

board.<br />

Repair: Reflowed<br />

all solder joints<br />

with flux, a fine tip<br />

soldering iron, and<br />

Broken solder joints inspection scope. A<br />

very steady hand and some basic knowledge of electronics<br />

soldering is required. Too much heat or flux<br />

will destroy components and/or circuit traces, and<br />

stray solder will cause shorts.<br />

After soldering is finished, the boards were gently<br />

cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a soft bristle brush<br />

to remove any debris and excess flux, then all joints<br />

were examined under magnification to ensure proper<br />

repair.<br />

Battery holder reattached. Key transmitter tested<br />

and worked properly. Enjoy your working key transmitter.<br />

There have been some isolated incidents where<br />

the key transmitter did not work after repair. In these<br />

cases, the red LED on the case blinked slowly. Not a<br />

good sign. The IC was not generating the coded signal<br />

needed. Looked like an internal failure of the IC,<br />

which is not fixable as it is super-secret Porsche stuff<br />

(the IC contains the coding and cannot be replaced).<br />

If you have a non-working transmitter, but find the<br />

procedure a bit daunting, feel free to e-mail me at<br />

charlestolles@gmail.com and I’ll try to accommodate<br />

you as best I can.<br />

Five-Speed Chatter: A Blustery Brush with Death<br />

By Ash Seidl-Staley<br />

Photo courtesy of the Author<br />

e have all felt the sudden<br />

tug of the wheel,<br />

W<br />

the slight push into<br />

the rumble strips, and<br />

the straight up shove of the rear<br />

end when a wind gust slams into<br />

us while driving on the highway.<br />

Those who have driven a van, a<br />

box truck, or even a large U-Haul,<br />

especially while driving on one of<br />

the Metroplex’s rural highways,<br />

can attest to the mercilessness of<br />

Texas winds. Over time, as we mature<br />

into attentive drivers, we learn<br />

how to compensate for the wind’s<br />

force, but there will always be that<br />

time you get caught off guard. Unfortunately,<br />

this was my fate.<br />

After living in Allen and Plano<br />

for seven years, I forgot how brutal<br />

a 25 mph wind gust can be! I was<br />

rudely reminded of my error late<br />

one misty night after I closed up the<br />

sandwich shop. At 11:45 pm, east/<br />

southbound I-635 is fairly open,<br />

as is Highway 80. Thanks to early<br />

evening rain showers, however, the<br />

roads were still pretty wet. As a result,<br />

I took it easy on the gas, opted<br />

to shut off cruise control, and was<br />

vigilant about monitoring my speed<br />

on corners. The entire trip along<br />

LBJ freeway went swimmingly, as<br />

did my entrance onto Highway 80.<br />

I was careful when passing others,<br />

and I didn’t try to hot-rod it past<br />

the eighteen-wheelers. But when I<br />

passed through Sunnyvale, I failed<br />

to remember that any semblance of<br />

wind protection provided by concrete<br />

structures disappears right<br />

before you cross East Fork Road<br />

and part of Lake Ray Hubbard’s<br />

southern spillway. Out of nowhere,<br />

a forceful gust lifted and shoved<br />

my Nissan’s back end so hard that<br />

I thought someone had wrecked<br />

into my left rear quarter panel.<br />

When my hatchback lowered<br />

back to the road, it didn’t gain any<br />

traction on the saturated roads. I<br />

“Nancy” our Nissan Versa Note<br />

hydroplaned<br />

going 68 mph<br />

in the dead of<br />

night! Fortunately,<br />

I was<br />

able, without<br />

even thinking,<br />

it would seem,<br />

to correct my<br />

slide. The car<br />

that happened<br />

to be entering<br />

the highway<br />

from Collins<br />

Road behind<br />

me, unless<br />

he was really<br />

paying attention,<br />

would have thought that I had<br />

merely changed lanes. To be honest,<br />

the slide felt just like driving<br />

on snowy roads. Learning to drive<br />

in Idaho all those years ago really<br />

paid off, I guess. Although safe and<br />

in full control of the vehicle, I was<br />

still pretty rattled. The rest of the<br />

way home I barely took it above 62<br />

mph, and I couldn’t help but think<br />

about how many unsuspecting<br />

drivers of hatchbacks, and other<br />

sub-compact hybrid vehicles like<br />

my Nissan, might get slammed in<br />

that very same spot. I mean, I love<br />

the awesome mpg of today’s subcompacts,<br />

as well as the reliability<br />

of their powertrain, but man, they<br />

are basically aluminum cans when<br />

it comes to blustery weather!<br />

The engineers of our Porsches<br />

have many design tools and have<br />

been quite successful at using them<br />

to help owners stabilize at high<br />

speeds. The 928 and the 968, as<br />

well as many of their front-engined<br />

siblings, were revered in their day<br />

for their exceptional aerodynamic<br />

stability. To see how far Porsche<br />

has come, all you have to do is subscribe<br />

to the Porsche Engineering<br />

magazine. Rather frequently, you’ll<br />

read about all the high-tech equipment<br />

that Porsche’s aerodynamic<br />

development team employs on a<br />

daily basis. You’ll see how Porsche<br />

possesses a top-rate facility that<br />

utilizes one of the world’s most efficient<br />

wind tunnels, and has also<br />

created a dual-track system that<br />

allows Porsche to test its production<br />

and concept cars in a number<br />

of different condition and speed<br />

combinations. On top of minimizing<br />

drag, reducing fuel consumption,<br />

and stabilizing the vehicle on<br />

high-speed corners, engineers at<br />

Porsche’s Weissach Development<br />

Center also study the effects of<br />

wind in order to improve acceleration,<br />

top speed, engine and brake<br />

cooling systems, and surprisingly,<br />

to improve the reduction of outside<br />

odors and sounds relative to those<br />

sitting in the car’s cab.<br />

Now, I’m all for the automatic<br />

retractable rear spoilers, innovative<br />

brake cooling designs, flashy, yet<br />

sleek aerodynamic styling, and<br />

even the reduction of unnecessary<br />

road noise, but please Porsche,<br />

don’t muffle the glorious roar rumbling<br />

from the back end for other<br />

people that don’t have a 914, and<br />

aren’t spoiled like me! Stay safe,<br />

and wrench on Mavs!<br />

Around the Bend...<br />

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor<br />

appiness in your Porsche isn’t around the<br />

H<br />

corner. It is the corner. Driving the perfect<br />

Porsche, on the perfect racetrack, is certainly<br />

a dream that many of our Maverick Region<br />

members have had through the years of owning their<br />

personal Porsche. In fact, for many Mavs, the Porsche<br />

they currently own is that perfect Porsche!<br />

Unfortunately, for those of us still looking for that<br />

perfect Porsche experience, actually driving the real<br />

thing on an iconic racetrack is very unlikely. That’s why<br />

a recent comment by Rory Carroll in Autoweek caught<br />

my attention.<br />

Gran Turismo Sport, the seventh iteration in the<br />

Gran Turismo series of racing simulations, was released<br />

in 2017, the 30th anniversary of this video game created<br />

by Kazunori Yamauchi and his team.<br />

And why does this matter to this quest of driving the<br />

perfect Porsche on the perfect racetrack? For the first<br />

time in the history of Gran Turismo (due to a<br />

previous exclusive license with EA), Porsche has<br />

licensed four models to be included in Gran<br />

Turismo Sport: 911 GT3 RS, 911 RSR, Cayman<br />

GT4 Clubsport, and 919 LMP1 Hybrid.<br />

Suddenly, the ability to “drive” four pretty good<br />

examples of “the perfect Porsche” on a wide variety<br />

of iconic racetracks, using a racing simulator with<br />

very realistic physics, is well within the reach of our<br />

Maverick members. I’d be interested in hearing about<br />

your experience with these perfect Porsche models<br />

for those of you with a Playstation and Gran Turismo<br />

Sport.<br />

For any Maverick members who are slot car<br />

racing afficiandos, there is some discussion about an<br />

impromptu get together at a local track in Garland<br />

where we could also put some Porsche models<br />

through their paces. Look for more information on<br />

that potential event on our web site and social media<br />

postings.<br />

For the rest of us, driving the perfect Porsche may<br />

be a simple exercise of skill such as Natalie Neff puts it,<br />

“I can parallel park in almost any spot that allows for<br />

even a few inches clearance on either end.<br />

Always within a foot of the curb, and preferably<br />

in a two-point motion: back in, straighten<br />

forward.” Try that in your Porsche if you dare.<br />

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 />
