Sprockets: Women (and Fashion) in Maverick Region’s History

By David Robertson, Region President

One thing

that stands

out is the

impact that

our women

members

have had on

this club.

e recently cleaned out a storage unit that

W

the club has rented for many years. Most

of what was found were extra copies of

Slipstream, old files and documents to be

shredded, and ancient technology items left there over

time.

There was also treasure found in some old mementos

of our club. Yearly scrapbooks and documentation of

our club over the years were located in the dust among

those items that were way overdue for the dumpster.

The pictures and descriptions in these compilations

tell a story of how a club like ours evolves and adapts

over time. The Maverick Region members have been a

fun bunch throughout the years and I have the pictures

to prove it!

One thing that stands out throughout

these scrapbooks is the impact

that our women members have had

on this club. There has been at least

one woman on our Executive Committee

serving as President, VP,

Secretary, or Treasurer since the

beginning of the Maverick Region in

1963. Women from this club on both

local and national levels have been

creating and implementing brilliant

ideas, competing in driving events, and managing the

Maverick Region from its inception to the organization

we have today. Many of these very long-tenured members

are still active in the club and I see them at many

of our events. After diving into our archives, I have an

entirely new level of respect for the contribution they

have made to our region over the years.

As I look at the pictures and yearly activity outlines

in these collections, I think about where we are today

as an organization. Except for the excessive amounts

of polyester and quite prominent sideburns, not much

has changed with the goals and spirit of this club. We

just have a much bigger challenge today to compete

with the unlimited choices that our members have for

their attention and time, both online and in the physical

world. This challenge only becomes greater with

the next generation of Maverick Region members.

The quality of our event offerings, newsletter and

social media is phenomenal today due to the continuous

innovation and enthusiasm of our event chairs and

volunteers. Member participation and excitement is

as high as it has ever been. Although there have been

questionable fashion trends over the years, the mantra

of our club has not changed since its inception, and I

hope that it never does. Driving Friendships!

MAV OF THE MONTH: Derrick Tate

Our Mav of the Month for March 2018 is Derrick

Tate. Derrick joined PCA last year and became actively

involved in many of our Maverick Region events, most

notably our Coffee Meets. Many of you will also

recognize this young man, as he is always greeting

Maverick members with a warm smile, eager to please,

and be of assistance whether greeting at the Founders

Day Celebration, Mavs & Mochas, or helping get your

car photographed at our December People’s Choice

Car Show in Highland Park Village. Since joining the

region, Derrick has participated in several tours,

monthly socials, and of course Mavs & Mochas. Derrick

also took it upon himself to start showing up to our

monthly board meetings

offering to help in any

capacity he could, and as a

matter of fact, effective

this month, Derrick

becomes Co-Chair of our

Coffee Meets. Derrick is

yet another example of

the enthusiasm that is

catching on, making him

the face of our club’s

future. Congratulations

on a job well done!

Mavs & Mochas: Southlake and Watters Creek in the Cold!

By Jason Oliver, Porsche 996 Owner and Mark Palmer, Porsche 993 Host

anuary: 20 Years of the 996

J

It was a warm reception for

the Porsche 996 on a chilly

January morning. At least 31 of

the early hydrated 911s were in attendance,

which was roughly one 996 for every temperature

degree that morning. Brisk. Cool.

Frosty. Choose an adjective, it was cold.

Cold start to the morning

Jason

Oliver

Celebrating the 20th

anniversary of the 996,

Southlake Town Square

was awash with the full

spectrum of the first

water-cooled 911s, from

early models built in 1998

to those produced up

through 2004.

As an owner of an

early 996, I’m a little biased and madly in love with

the sometimes-maligned generation of the 911. The

Porsche 996 was a new design by Pinky Lai. It was the

first new 911 that was completely redesigned, with little

being carried over from the previous 993 models. All

new body work, interior, and the aforementioned first

water-cooled engine in a 911.

By 9 am, a quick walk around the square allowed us

to eye-spy everything and anything 996, including base

C2s, C4s, Gen 1s, Gen 2s, Turbos, Coupés, Cabriolets,

4Ss, and an X50 (a Turbo with larger turbochargers

and intercoolers providing a 30-hp increase). All were

represented and welcomed, with a cup of joe from Starbucks

and a donut personally handed out by Mav of the

Year Bill Orr himself.

Besides the first-generation H2O stars of the show,

there were also the usual suspects in attendance, with

the exception of a random drive-by, a 1991 964 reimagined

by Singer Vehicle Design. As expected, the Singer

quickly drew a crowd, worthy of any celebrity/paparazzi

swarm fest, and we are all looking forward to seeing

more of it at future events.

Early 996 arrivals (Photo by Andrew Barber)

All told, at last count, over 120 cars braved the 30°

morning in Southlake, which means we are all either

crazy about our cars, or we REALLY like coffee and

doughnuts.

ebruary: 25 Years of the 993

F

The conditions weren’t great

but the spirit of the Mavs & Mochas

members overcame all that

mother nature served up Saturday morning,

Mark

February 10, and made for a great event.

Palmer

We had everything Saturday: 117 great cars,

Frogg coffee, Mr. 993 Rudy Mancinas, raffle

winners for The Pad Keeper, and 25 awesome 993s.

To everyone that came out: thank you! Please plan

on attending the March meeting at Zims Autotechnik

and invite your Porsche friends. I want to give a special

shout out to Rudy Mancinas who came up from

Houston in his beautiful 993 to support his fellow 993

owners and the Mavs.

Another special thank you to David Etter, The Pad

Keeper, for donating four Pad Keepers along with a

nice banner for the event. Frogg Coffee Bar & Creperie

was very accommodating, thank you.

Last, to everyone that helped make it all happen

and braved the early morning weather to put out parking

cones, assist drivers in parking, put out tables and

banners, and anything else that needed to happen….

boo-yaa!

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations

By Bill Kruder, Region Advertising Chair

his month’s “conversation”

started with an

T

email back in October

from a member asking

if it would be OK to join us at our

Mavs & Mochas, even though she

would be in her daily driver. She

briefly mentioned how she had a

Porsche that had not been driven

for some time, and how she was

once active in PCA and was looking

to reconnect. Well, after assuring

her that we would love to have her

attend, a few emails later I learned

she had an 80s SC, so I told her to

look me up that morning and we

would chat. With that, our connection

was in motion.

So here is the next individual in

my series of “conversations” I would

like to share with you . . .

Olga Carolyn Stain Taylor,

Porsche Enthusiast since 1978,

Owner today of a

1980 911 SC Targa

Bill Kruder: So are you originally

from here?

Olga Taylor: No, I was born in

D.C. I was a baby when we moved to

Houston, but I grew up in the San

Joaquin Valley, specifically Fresno.

BK: So how did you end up living

in Dallas?

OT: Well after graduating college

let’s just say I moved a lot

(laughing). I got a job at Kraft

Foods in Buena Park as a food

chemist and had a few promotions

when an opportunity came up with

Frito Lay at Exchange Park in Dallas.

I was here for several months

before they moved me back to L.A.

as a QA Manager. It wasn’t till 1988

that I moved here permanently,

first as a Field Industrial Engineer,

then as Area Manager.

“Sleeping Beauty” from 1996 to

November 2017

BK: I understand that after all the

different positions that you had as a

chemist and production manager, you

have a whole different career?

OT: Yes, in 1993 I started “New

Paradigms,” a consulting company

that specializes in organization development.

I make sure people play

well together (laughing). Today, I

mainly work on executive coaching,

training, and I teach at SMU.

BK: So how did you get your passion

for cars?

OT: I’d have to blame my dad.

When were kids he had a manual

Ford Falcon that he would drive

briskly down the streets, surprisingly

with us kids in the car. Talk

about something you would never

do today! But those were different

times. As a kid, I was not sure about

fast driving, but my dad was always

interested in fast cars and I guess

that just stuck.

BK: So what was your first experience

with Porsche?

OT: My dad’s friend saw me

walking home from middle school

and offered me a ride in his 911 -- it

was such a thrill. Later, I bought my

brother’s friend’s black 1974 914/4

after he took it out on the track

for a test drive. This was in 1978. I

drove the 914 for some time after

that till my boss thought I should

have another car.

BK: And did that work out?

OT: Well this was about 1984.

We went to Redondo Porsche, I

told them how much I would pay,

and about two weeks later, for my

30th birthday, I was now the owner

of two Porsches. They had located

my “baby,” the 1980 SC Targa in

Nutmeg Metallic.

BK: And I understand your cars are

not garage queens?

OT: Oh no! When I own cars I

drive them -- from 1984 thru 1996

I put on over 100k miles on “Baby.”

She took on the Pacific coast, wine

country, and mountains, as well as

PCA events: Tours, Rallies, Track,

Autocross, etc.

Touring at Mount Hood National Forest

BK: So after 1996?

OT: Well let’s just say that owning

and driving a Porsche just

makes one happy; how can it not,

right? You have to just smile each

and every time you head out. But

then life gets complicated, and I

went through a very heartbreaking

time. So, I just parked it and never

looked at it again. As I said, a lot

was going on, and in 2007 I lost my

husband, so again that just was not

the focus.

12 March


BK: And what made you want to

bring the car out after 21 years?

OT: Well, last September I had

a friend over to the house, and he

saw this car covered in the garage

and asked what it was. I uncovered

it and he said, “Olga why don’t you

drive this?”

BK: OK so I know the story gets good

now.

OT: It really does. I had read

about this PCA group who gather

for coffee every month and I

thought maybe I should just go see

what goes on and meet them. I had

been very active in the PCA

club in Oregon back in 1985

till moving here in 1988.

BK: Yes I remember you sending

me an email asking if you

could drive over to meet us.

OT: And I did, I drove over

to Bedford, the Texas Harley

Dealership, in my Honda

Pilot, and upon arriving was

directed to the “non-Porsche” lot

(laughing). But hey, I get it! So, I

parked and started walking the lot

among more Porsches that I had

ever seen in one place for some

time. I casually just started to talk to

some of the owners, when I ran into

Frank Briggs and told him I had a

car that had not been driven in 20

years. Well Frank said we better do

something about that! So before I

knew it he was at my house, checking

the oil, and bringing fresh gas

and a battery. With a crank or two it

started! It had not run since 1996.

With that, Frank shut it down and

recommended that I get the car

in for service. He recommended

Nate, Rick, and Ricky at Fifth Gear.

So we flat bedded it off to them.

Frank went over there and supervised

the whole process for me.

BK: And when was the car ready to

drive again?

OT: “Baby” became road worthy

the day before Thanksgiving.

I wasn’t even sure I knew how to

drive a stick after 20 years. Then,

the best part was being able to attend

Founders Day Mavs & Mochas

with some 200 other cars. Let’s

just say all the happiness I had

enjoyed, and yet missed, was

back!

And there you have it: yet

another example of “driving

friendships,” and what it means

to not only own a Porsche but

how that simple pleasure

changes lives forever.

Motoring Mavs at Mayo: Saturday Morning With Porsches

ith the success of Mavs & Mochas (M & M)

W

-- sponsored by our friends at Park Place

Porsche – we are now averaging nearly 120

cars a month, and are excited to announce

another new monthly event for you to attend.

Starting in March we will kick off our newest

event: Motoring Mavs at Mayo, sponsored by Mayo

Performance. This event will be held every third

Saturday of the month, and starting time will be 9:11

am at Mayo Performance in Euless.

Now you might wonder what the difference is

between M & M and Motoring Mavs at Mayo. Well, M &

M is held the second Saturday of the month and varies

on location,

typically

moving East

and West in

the Metroplex.

Motoring Mavs

at Mayo will

be the third

Saturday of the

month, and will

always be at the

garage. As Ed says, “we see this event focused around

shop talk.” More information can be found at http://

mav.pca.org/go/mmm. In addition, an online store

has been created specifically to allow you to purchase

merchandise with the MMaM logo. You can browse and

order those items at www.zazzle.com/motoring_mavs.

So there you have it. If you have been disappointed

in not being able to attend Mavs & Mochas, you now

have another option to get your coffee fix and enjoy

even more great Porsches. We look forward to seeing

you there, and thank Mayo Performance for their

partnership in this new monthly event!

Upcoming Maverick Region Events


2018 Maverick Region All Member Party

By Jim Hirsch, Slipstream Editor with observations by Josh Gutjahr

Photos by Andrew Barber

he longtime Maverick Region motto of

T

“Driving Friendships” was definitely in evidence

to the members who attended the All

Member Party (AMP) held on January 27.

Our Maverick Region made Hackberry Country

Club the place to be as over 120 Porsche vehicles made

the drive along with over 250 PCA friends in attendance

for the afternoon.

Fortunately the weather cooperated for our event

once again and allowed members to spend lots of

time outside enjoying the parking lot full of members’

Porsches of all years and models.

As members made their way inside, they were greeted

and directed to the area filled with tables of event

information as well as a winderful selection of appetizers

and drinks.

Our Region President, David Robertson, did a masterful

job sharing information about our club and what

members can expect in the way of numerous activities

and information sources.

Beyond great food and libations, the conversations

heard throughout the afternoon were those of new and

old friends sharing good times together.

Our Region Social Chair, Tracy Robertson, did a

wonderful job of putting this event together for our

new and current members to enjoy. This is the final

event coordination for Tracy as she turns over the Social

reins to Debi Gibson and gets a well deserved

break. Thank you Tracy for your years of service as the

Region’s Social Chair!

A new Maverick Region member, Josh Gutjahr,

attended with Parker Ackerman and shared these

observations.

Parker and I were a little nervous about coming

to this event because we were unsure as to how the

reception would be. This marks my second Maverick

Region event, with the first one being an Autocross.

For Parker this would be her first car event EVER.

We arrived a little late, but wasted no time diving

into the great food and drink that was there. I met a

couple of familiar faces, and mingled with new ones

as well.

Everyone was so friendly and outgoing, and that

made the world of difference for us. We got so wrapped

up in conversation, that I didn’t have time to show

Parker all the cars! I barely was able to scratch the

surface on the flat-6 configuration. I also forgot to

get the pictures that I promised both our parents. Oh

well, there’ll be other times. I enjoyed learning about

all the upcoming car events, such as the Mavs & Mochas

and the tours. Overall we had a great time and

will be coming out to more events as they arise. Being

from Tyler it’s hard sometimes to get to the Maverick

Region events, but I’m going to try at least one event

a month. Parker had a great time as well, and the

Mavericks definitely made a great impression on her.

Spring 2018 Porsche Promenade: Shine & Show

By Mike Mahoney, Region Concours Chair

n Sunday, March 25, Maverick

Region of the PCA will be

O

holding its inaugural Porsche

Promenade Car Show at

Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers

Branch. The show will be held from 11

am to 2 pm where brunch and refreshments

will be served. Look for registration

information on our Facebook page.

We’re looking forward to kicking off

2018 with a “Shine & Show” event, where a “clean car”

is all you need. Concours d’Elegance this is not. Bring

your clean Porsche and let our judges rate your cleaning

skills.

Accessing the vast “think tank” of car show experience

from the club, veteran car show participants Ed

Mayo and Alan Bambina will assist the judges and help

set the expectations of participants.

All members will receive a club “enews” email regarding

registration, volunteers needed for judges, and

training for judges and participants. We will also post

that information on our web site at http://mav.pca.

org/Events/Concours/ and our Facebook page.

lease join us for our third annual Easter

P

gimmick rally: the Bunny Hop Road Rally

(BHRR) on Saturday, April 7. Sign-in is at

9 am in the Costco parking lot at 11220

Dallas Parkway in Frisco, with first car out shortly after

the drivers’ meeting at 9:30. We will end at the Hard

Eight BBQ in The Colony for libation and lunch, a recap

of the fun-filled route, and our prestigious award

ceremony! The competition for the DLBF (Dead Last

But Finished) Award is always fierce!

If you joined us in the past for either our Halloween

or Easter gimmick rallies, you know how much fun we

have – your rallymeisters continue to hone their bag

of gimmicks to maintain the excitement and competition,

and this rally will assuredly introduce some new

“hops” down that path. If you are new to gimmick rallying,

we assure you that it will be an enjoyable morning.

Our goal is to keep everyone on the route, so the drive

instructions are not (too) cryptic, as long as you follow

a few basic rules. We have planned the rally to go

from Frisco to The Colony, traveling over 60 miles and

staying on paved back roads, out of the main stream of

traffic as much as possible.

Kurt Scaggs, our event ads designer,

has created yet another unique logo

for this first Porsche Promenade.

All participants will receive a

commemorative decal on the day of the

car show. In addition, an online store

has been created specifically to allow

you to purchase other merchandise with

the same commemorative logo. You can

browse and order those items at

www.zazzle.com/maverick_concours.

We’re looking forward to a great turnout for this

first Concours event of 2018.

If you have any questions please call me at 801-230-

1482 or email me at concours@mavpca.org.

Maverick Rally Series: Bunny Hop Road Rally Preview

By George Luxbacher and Don Sebert, Region Rally Co-Chairs

Two people at a minimum should be in each car:

a driver and a navigator. Pre-registration is strongly

encouraged; we will have over thirty cars participating,

leaving at one- to two-minute intervals from our starting

point, and pre-registration helps in our planning.

We will send out General Instructions prior to the rally

as well – it helps to

understand the basic

rules and guidance

before rally day.

We look forward

to seeing you at the

BHRR!! Contact us

with any questions.

Maverick Monthly Social: Silver Fox in Grapevine

By Dan Amado

hey’re baaaack!! Yes, we are very happy that after a very busy holiday season, the popular Monthly

T

Socials are back for our members’ enjoyment and included in the Maverick Events Calendar.

There was a great turnout of members at the fabulous Grapevine Silver Fox restaurant on Thursday,

February 8. It was exciting to get together with so many familiar faces and extend our welcome to the

new attendees. As usual, everyone was very chatty, catching up with each other, sharing their stories, and welcoming

the new attendees.

The Silver Fox setting is perfect since they dedicate an entire private area by the bar, with assigned servers to

take good care of us. Almost everybody stayed to enjoy the terrific food and friendly service, after breaking the ice

with some of our favorite beverages.

We are already working hard to fill the rest of the calendar which promises to continue in the tradition of these

fun and friendly events.

We look forward to seeing you at the next Monthly Social event which will be held at the The Lion & Crown Pub

located in the Watters Creek shopping area in Allen. Check for more details in the ad on page 17.

Maverick Tour Series: Mitas Hill Vineyards Preview

By Mark Pitarresi, Region Tours Chair

pring is right around the corner, and it’s

S

time to get your Porsche in order for a great

tour season. We have to get those Porsches

waxed or coated in time for bug season!

Our first Tour, “Wine M Up, Blow M Out!” is scheduled

for Sunday, March 25, which is the first official

weekend of spring. We have a great drive lined up, and

it’s a new route! The roads on this tour are the most

underpopulated that I have experienced on a Maverick

Tour, well at least since I have been attending them.

You will experience a great country drive in the lesspopulated

areas northeast of Dallas. At the time this

article was written, there was no construction on this

route. The Tour starts at Tom Thumb, 3070 N Goliad

Street, in Rockwall, Tx 75087. We will start the First

Timers’ Drivers’ Briefing at 9:45 am. We recommend

first time tour attendees to arrive no later than 9:30 so

they have time to get signed in and listen to the First

Timers’ Drivers’ Briefing.

Most of our tour attendees arrive early to socialize

and check out all the different types of Porsches that

attend these tours. Arriving early also helps our volunteers

in signing everyone in on time. Our normal Drivers’

Briefing will begin at 10:00, and then we will head

for our destination shortly afterward. The drive is 71.5

miles and will last approximately an hour and forty-five

minutes. Our Tour ends at Mitas Hill Vineyard, 2300

Vineyard Hill Lane, in McKinney, TX 75071.

Registration for this tour will be different than past

tours. You will need to register on our web site at mav.

pca.org/Events/Tours.asp. Registration will open up

one month before the tour. If you don’t already have

an account with Clubregistration.net you will need to

follow the instructions on Clubregistration.net to set

up an account. Once registered we will send out an

email on the third day before the tour with all the information

that you need to attend.

A second change

that we have implemented

in the tour

program is the Vintage

Class. This new

class will offer a more

relaxed driving experience

within that

group. It will be your

choice to drive in the

Vintage Class or the Modern Class regardless of what

type of Porsche you drive. You will be able to make this

selection when signing up for the Tour.

We will be accepting donations to Patriot Paws Charity

at the sign-in table. The mission of Patriot Paws is to

train and provide service dogs of the highest quality at

no cost to disabled American veterans and others with

mobile disabilities. You can learn more about our clubs

preferred charity at http://mav.pca.org/about/charity/.

We look forward to seeing everyone on this Tour!

If you would like more information on Driving Tours

please see last month’s article in Slipstream or email

Tour drives will be organized into

Five-Speed Chatter: Weihnachtsporsche Schätze

By Ash Seidl-Staley

he holidays are a special

time. Lots of good

T

food and plenty of great

times spent with family

and friends. I have also found that

it is easy to question the lengths of

November, December, and the first

half of January. Sometimes vacations,

trips, and family get togethers

are not so relaxing. This past

holiday season I was thankful I got

to relax—albeit only a little—but I

was even happier that I got to spend

a bunch of time with my family.

I was also quite pleased with the

Christmas Porsche treasures Christian

and I received from Santa. I

wish to share with you what we acquired,

not just to reveal our cool

Porsche collectables, but for you to

see the wide range of toy companies

currently working with Porsche.

Who knows, this discussion might

give you some ideas for the handful

of birthdays, anniversaries, and bar

mitzvas coming up this year.

A few years back I believe I relayed

my utter fascination at the

fact that Porsche and LEGO have

collaborated and developed toys

based on some of the

latest 911s. I mean,

back when I was a

kid in the mid 90s,

I would have sold

all my little sister’s

teeth to the tooth

fairy in one night for

a LEGO GT1! And,

now, kids these days

have at least three

different Flying Lizard

racing models

to choose from. On

top of that, Playmobile,

Power Wheels,

and even Barbie

have come out with

Porsches.

As you can see

from the photo of

The most recent additions to the collection

our Christmas haul, Porsche has

developed toys and models with

even more companies than the

ones listed thus far. Right off the

bat, Hot Wheels, Revell, and Maisto

make sense; making toy cars is kind

of their thing. But if you ask anyone

that has tried to search for good

quality die-cast models these days,

he or she would tell you how difficult

it is to find the big ones, as well

as how long it could take to find

the specific model you desired. Hot

Wheels definitely makes things easy

on the consumer. They have made

truckloads of iconic, and often

flashy, 911s, Carrera GTs, and 959s

since the mid 70s, but again, unless

you shop online, you won’t be able

to find a specific model at any physical

store locations. It is very much

the luck of the draw when it comes

to toy shopping.

The same can easily be said for

Revell’s plastic and die cast models.

I had searched for a 914 model for at

least 10 years. Physical stores never

carried them (the clerk often said

“nine four-what?”), I always come

up short on eBay, and I never committed

to buying the pricey ones

I did find. As luck would have it I

found the two-in-one 914 pictured

at a Hobby Lobby in Rockwall. I

actually found two there—the only

two—so naturally I bought one for

myself, and the other as my Uncle’s

Christmas gift!

Don’t fret -- if toys and models

are not your thing, there are many

other Porsche collectibles and

memorabilia available with just a

quick search online. Banners, flags,

decals, clothes, posters, and books

galore flood retail websites. Sites

and apps like Pinterest and Instagram

even reveal how artsy and

creative people make their own

types of Porsche-inspired goods.

My Uncle seems to have a knack

for finding the perfect Porsche

gift. This year he got me the large,

framed 944 Turbo Specification

poster pictured. Not only does the

poster depict sketches of the car at

different profiles, but it also lists

the car’s class, body type, engine,

and top speed. My uncle knows me

so well.

No matter who you are or what

your style is, there is

a Porsche collectible

out there for you.

Many Mavericks already

collect and

display their memorabilia

proudly and

can help in your

search as well. Speaking

of hanging, I

have to go find a

spot to hang my 944

Turbo poster . . . .

Happy shopping,

and Wrench on

Mavs!

January Tech Session: Oils and Lubrication

By Mike O’Hare

o, how do you get a 15 year-old teenage boy

S

out of bed early on a Saturday morning?

Offer up the opportunity to learn more

about the cars he loves (dad too) and to

see some of these fine driving machines that our Mav

owners love so much.

Yep - my son Ian and I ran that play and headed

downtown for a wonderful experience at the Mav’s Tech

session hosted by Park Place Porsche, ExxonMobil, and

our own Mike-n-Michael’s (Mahoney and Baynton) pit

lane commentary. Upon arriving in the parking lot,

Ian was quick to call out all the members’ cool cars

– specifically the Kruder 356, along with the Barber

Carmine Red GT4, which was parked discretely in its

own little area of the dealership.

After half a dozen cups, hats and shirts were awarded,

and the 90-minute journey commenced with a fantastic

engagement of learning everything from refinery

processing to oil grades, viscosity levels, synthetic vs.

conventional, additives, and frequency of oil changes!

A special “thanks” is due to Mike Mahoney and his 30+

years of petroleum experience for helping to simplify

what is a very complex industry topic!

Maverick members toured the showroom and the shop area

to learn what services Park Place offers

Park Place Porsche GM Patrick Huston and Maverick Tech

Session Chair Michael Baynton welcome a sold-out session of

Maverick members interested in proper lubrication

Upon entering the showroom, the Park Place crew

and GM Patrick Huston greeted us with open arms.

We were all escorted upstairs into a classroom-setting

conference room that included an abundance of

fresh coffee, donuts and other fine edibles. Ian and I

took our seats towards the front of the class -- from his

perspective (and high school experience) the best seat

to be in, and less inclined to be called upon to answer

a tough question by the “teacher.”

The room was filled to capacity, and extra chairs

had to be brought in to accommodate the overflow of

excited Mav owners passionately waiting to learn about

proper lubrication and maintenance. The group was

greeted by Tech Session Chair Michael Baynton, who

introduced us to Porsche ExxonMobil rep Leanna

Almarines (“the teacher”), who would take us through

a very informative PowerPoint presentation that began

with asking the group some “simple” questions. I

learned that nothing gets hands in the air or responsive

shout-outs quicker than the offering of various Mobil 1

and Porsche trinkets for correct answers.

After the session, Patrick Huston offered everyone a

personally guided tour of the magnificent dealership,

including the sales floor, and--best of all--their expansive

service facility. I could see Ian’s (and almost everyone

else’s) eyes light up with excitement in hopes of

catching a glimpse of a 918, GT3, or GT4 in for service

or sitting on the sales floor waiting to be taken home

by some very fortunate owner. It was definitely our

lucky day, as all eyes feasted on not one but two 918s, a

few GT3s and GT4s, and a plethora of other beautiful

Porsches, including the new Panamera Sport Turismo.

As Ian and I headed out from a great morning he

was quick to tell me about his dream to someday have

his own Porsche dealership and personal collection

of the finest Porsche automobiles in existence. My

response: “Chase that dream and don’t ever forget to

change your oil frequently!”

Around the Bend...

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor

ny Porsche is a true enthusiast’s car. A

A

classic Porsche may be considered more of a

driver’s car due to the analog nature of the

experience, while a modern Porsche may

be considered more of a performance car due to the

more advanced tech in the nature of the experience.

What all Maverick members can take away from

this is the fact that owning and driving any Porsche is

first and foremost an exceptional experience. So, what

might you consider as a next step to enjoy your Porsche

experience even more? I’m glad you asked!

The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is

providing Porsche enthusiasts an opportunity to better

understand the answer to the question,“What makes

a Porsche a Porsche?” The Porsche Effect exhibit

now at the museum explores the brand’s history and

enduring success, which have been made possible by

the distinctive design, engineering, advertising, and

racing triumphs of its products.

The exhibit encompasses five thematic

sections, each of which contains a combination

of automobiles, artifacts, archival material, film

footage, and visual reproductions.

Elements of Style addresses “what makes a Porsche

a Porsche” by tracing how the cars’ ideal proportions

have developed into an aesthetic archetype that

illustrates “the Porsche Effect.”

The Zuffenhausen and Beyond section explores

the crucial transatlantic relationship between Porsche

manufacturing in Germany and the American market,

illustrating the large role of L.A. in the Porsche story.

Extended Families illustrates both the international

family of Porsche owners and the families of the Porsche

owners themselves. Innovation through Competition

relates the ways in which Porsche’s impressive racing

success was driven by engineering innovation. Finally,

the Word/Image/Object space reveals how the Porsche

phenomenon has resulted in a recognizable style.

As Alan Drayson comments, “driving a Porsche puts

you in charge of a smart, reliable sports machine full of

character. Further, Porsche ownership makes you part

of a massive community of enthusiasts keen to

share their passion for the brand. The social life

that you experience with these cars shouldn’t

be underestimated”.

Sounds like a road trip is in order!

Treat your portfolio like you would your Porsche

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

Shouldn’t your financial portfolio receive similar qualified attention?
