SPROCKETS: Porsche in Pop Culture

By David Robertson, Region President

Porsche: there is no substitute. When I was a kid,

this tagline resonated with me, because that is what

Tom Cruise said in the movie Risky Business as he was,

well, just being really cool driving around in a 928. I

watched that movie over and over again, thinking the

928 was just about the greatest car I had ever seen.

Porsche certainly knew what they were

doing with their product placement because

from the day Risky Business came out in

1983, way before I could drive, I had to have

a Porsche.

Sixteen Candles was another great Porsche

placement movie for youngsters trying to decide which

car brands to obsess over for the rest of their lives.

After watching this movie, I decided that I needed to

have a 944 just like Jake. If you don’t remember, Jake

was the tall, handsome jock who all the cheerleaders

wanted to date. Jake actually had a crush on Samantha

(Molly Ringwald) who was the shy nerdy girl whose

sister always got all the attention. Are you with me so

far? Through a series of 1980s teen movie hilarities,

Samantha and Jake keep missing each other, until the

very end of the movie. The crowd clears and there is

Jake leaning on his 944 asking for Samantha to come

over and ride off into forever bliss in a red 944. The guy

gets the girl with the big hair and they drive off into the

sunset in what I would imagine was Jake’s second or

third high school Porsche. It was also about this time

that I was introduced to the harsh concept of reality

vs fantasy, and unlike Jake, I would not be driving a

Porsche in high school under any circumstances.

When Sixteen Candles came out, I envisioned my

own version of the last scene in my mind. Just like

Jake I was a really cool high school Porsche guy, but in

this version I am standing next to my 928 from Risky

Business. As I am waiting for the crowd to clear, I catch

the eye of my slightly nerdy high school crush across the

street, as she is reluctantly leaving with her parents to

go to her much more popular sister’s wedding reception.

As she is walking over she turns to her parents and very

excitedly mouths “This is the guy!” and of course they

tell her to run off with me instead of going to her sister’s

dumb wedding reception. I can see the pride in her

father’s eyes as his daughter and I head off for a joyride

on the twisty and mostly un-patrolled back roads of

Rusk County in East Texas, driving one of the fastest

and most powerful production cars of that era. As an

SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor

adult I can now see that there were a few minor flaws in

my teen fantasy, but at the time it seemed pretty doable

as long as I could just get my hands on a Porsche 928

and a driver’s license.

MAV OF THE MONTH: Jim Hirsch

This month, Jim Hirsch officially turns over the Editor

role of Slipstream. When he joined the Mavericks in 2014

he immediately jumped in, and after a short training

period, took over as Editor of our monthly newsletter.

In that time, Jim

has worked more

hours than any

of us will ever

know to create a

publication that

has only gotten

better month

after month. Jim

has also applied

the same care

and meticulous attention to detail in finding a new

Editor and assuring a smooth transition.

Although stepping away from the Slipstream role, Jim

will continue to be a big part of the Maverick Region,

working with Mavs & Mochas as well as jumping in

where needed to make our club better by the day!

Preview: May at Mayo’s 2018

By Debi Kruder

It’s that time of year, when our Porsches are enjoying

the sunshine and are ready for some outdoor fun with

fellow Mavs! Yes, that’s right, it’s May at Mayo’s on

Saturday, May 5! As in past years, Mayo Performance

is clearing their garage so we can eat, drink, and spend

time driving friendships. While the venue is the same as

in years past, the menu (both food and events) is quite

different and promises to be great fun!

Be sure to arrive on time at 11 am to check in for your

meal tickets and for the new “Porsche Pair-up.” What’s

that, you say? Well, you’ll be paired with new and old

Mavs to form a team. Your team will work together to

find the Porsche in the lot that matches the “Porsche

Pair-Up” trivia questions. Game begins at noon! It’s a

great way to meet new folks and their cars. Mavs who

participate in the game and submit their answers will

all receive our cool May at Mayo’s car decal. Members

on winning teams will have their names submitted in

a drawing for one of three premium prizes provided

by our partners Nordstrom, Mayo Performance, and

Silver Fox.

What’s on the food menu, you ask? Well it’s on

wheels too! We are happy to have both The Butcher’s

Son and the Texas Burrito Company gourmet food

trucks serving us burritos, tacos, quesadillas, sliders,

and gourmet sandwiches, all paired with chips and a

drink! Want to cool off? Grab

a delicious treat from Steel City

Pops as you walk and admire

both classic and new Porsches.

We are excited to welcome one of our new charitable

organizations: Patriot PAWS!

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

and PTSD in order to help restore

their physical and emotional independence.

Our goal is for Maverick PCA to raise enough

to provide a service dog in 2018. You can make a

contribution online when registering for May at Mayo’s

or at the event.

Registration for May at Mayo’s is available online

and is $20 per person. Registration is required. Your

registration fee includes your entrée of choice from the

gourmet food trucks, chips, soft drink or water, and a

gourmet ice pop, not to mention a chance at premium

prizes!

What’s happened to the People’s Choice Car Show,

historically at May at Mayo’s? Well, it’s moved to

Sunday, June 24, with location and registration

information coming soon. So mark your calendars for

Saturday, May 5 from 11 am to 1 pm, and go online to

register for May at Mayo’s today! With great food,

friends, and Porsches, it’s sure to be a great time!

Autocross Series: The 2018 Season is underway

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

photos by LightSpeed Images

Event #1 of the 10 event series was held

at Lone Star Park, the excellent site for these

events, in Grand Prairie, on February 25th.

110 drivers made at least 6 attempts at quick times

without knocking over any two second penalty

cones. Fifteen Porsche drivers competed in six classes.

Significant others came out to drive again and made up

a third of our entries. The new 991 GT3 RS, co-driven

by Ryan Harris and Marc Nemati, decided to run the

SCCA SSP class and were a lot of fun to watch negotiate

this relatively fast course. The largest Porsche class P-4

had two drivers entered in each of the three cars for

some close competition.

Amir El-Baghdady brought out his beautiful 944

S2 Cabriolet and was really tossing it around for three

runs. Something gave up on his 4th run so he had to

ride a flatbed home that afternoon. Hope he gets that

fixed and comes back soon. Carolle Liu is starting

her second season and had Amir worried. She is signed

up for the autocross school March 17th and all events

this season.

Ronald and Hubert Wong brought out their 997 and

991’s, complete with baby seats in the rear. Ronald’s

997 Cab was faster this time. It must have been because

he had two baby seats in his car!

Steve and Sherry Farnam brought their beautiful

yellow Cayman GT4 from Southern Texas and chased

each other down in class P3. We hope to keep seeing

them at our events.

Class P4 was the 914 and 924S class at this event.

Sigrid almost successfully “skirted” Mark with her final

fastest time, but clipped a cone to let him win this time.

Ryan Harris / Marc Nemati 991 GT3 RS

Carey Spreen and Sue Crimm brought out their fresh

re-built engine in the 924S and are going to be a threat

in this class when they sort out how quick that car really

is. Ed Mayo and Julia Underwood left the 911s at home

this time and brought the second 914

in this class.

Doug Edney ran alone in class P7

this time. I understand he has some

new suspension parts to put in and

look forward to seeing his low-rider

996 at the next event.

The autocross drivers school

March 17th at Mineral Wells was sold

out and the event that follow on the

18th is a Mirror-Cross. This means a

Christmas Tree Light side by side drag

race start on mirror image courses set

up side by side. After each run, the

cars swap sides and do it again. The

Mineral Wells site is excellent for these

format events and a lot of fun. There are

two more of these scheduled in 2018.

Watch the calendar in Slipstream, on the website

MAV.PCA.ORG or Facebook page for the remaining

events this season.

Mavs & Mochas Recap: Zims Autotechnik

By Rich Johnson

photos by Andrew Barber and Kirk Pruitt

Speechless! No words can fully explain this spring

morning at Zims.

If I could wind the clock back to the very first

914 event Diane and I attended, that we call

“the 914 Woodstock,” this gathering had the

same Porsche magic.

a few 914s together, but when 27 show up, you are

speechless! Someone mentioned that ten 914s showed

for the Rennsport event. I’m thinking they might want

to visit DFW.

Yes, the 914s were well-represented, but not the

only members of the Porsche family to join us. Over

a hundred and seventy other Porsches made it out for

morning coffee. As you walked the Zims lot, every

turn you made revealed something better than the last.

Pristine 356s from the Tub Club and lots of air-cooled

911s and 996s showed their pride. Turbos, Cabs,

Targas, and several slant-nose 911s, not to mention

the transaxle cars, like Andy Kay’s beautiful 928 and

Rob Adams’ spectacular 968. Lastly, there was the

incredible 2018 Panamera Sport Turismo from Park

Place Porsche, our official sponsor of Mavs & Mochas.

It was March 1, 1968 when the first 914 was

introduced to the world. Once considered the ugly

duckling of the Porsche family, the 914 has now become

appreciated for its mid-engine design, great handling,

and open-air fun.

Now let’s talk

about the people and

coffee. The crowd

was amazing, with

close to two hundred

people, young and

old, walking and

talking cars. Al

Zim, our host, was

out mingling in the

crowd, as was Ed

Mayo, not to mention

Alan Bambina; all

three Mavericks and

club legends. The

coffee -- well let’s

just say thanks to

Felix coffee; it flowed

nonstop for nearly

two hours.

above: Jim Hirsch, Kirk Pruitt and Bill Kruder

below: 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

On Saturday, March 10 we

celebrated 50 years of the 914,

and celebrate we did, with

nearly 30 914s in attendance.

We had several original 1970

914/6s, many four-cylinder

cars, a few “restomods,”

some six conversions, a V8,

and a couple of “works in

progress.” We had planned

for 16 cars, and it’s safe to say

most people never see even

As many of you

know, each month at

our Mavs & Mochas

we try to feature a

significant anniversary or milestone in Porsche history.

So if you missed this one, you missed one for the ages,

but mark your calendar and join us next month. We

will be out again at North Park, celebrating the ‘60s

cars and driving friendships.

Editor’s Note: Just to set the record straight: The number of914s that made an

appearance Rennsport Reunion V in 2015 might have been more than 10, but

may still have been less than the 27 that showed up at Mavs & Mochas!

Kruder’s Cars & Conversation

By Bill Kruder

photos courtesy of Bob Molyneux

This month’s “conversation”

one could say was 35 plus years in

the making.

When we first met a couple years

ago we learned we both had worked

for J.C. Penney for well over three

decades and had never met. Matter

of fact my lifelong friend and mentor’s

wife is best friends with his

wife, yet that never came up. So it

took Porsches, years after we both

retired, to finally meet and strike up

a friendship for the ages.

So here is the next in my series

of “conversations” I would like to

share with you…

Bob Molyneux, member

since 2013, Owner 2009

Carrera (997.2)

Bill Kruder: So are you

originally from here?

Bob Molyneux: No I grew

up in Downey, Ca. and stayed

there till I left for college. It

was a great place to live, I was

thirty minutes to the beach

so I surfed as a teenager and

I was about an hour from the

mountains so I skied too.

BK: And where did you head off

to for college?

BM: Well I stayed close to home

for the first two years attending

Cerritos Junior College. I worked

out my schedule so I could surf

and go to school, some days I did

both (laughing). After two years

there I transferred to the University

of Denver and got my B.S. in

Accounting.

BK: What did you do after

college?

BM: Right after graduating

college in 1973 I started with

J.C.Penney. They hired me as Field

12 April

Auditor out of the Denver office,

which was actually a satellite office

for Dallas. Now this was long

before the company ever thought of

moving its headquarters to Plano.

BK: I understand that you moved

a few times?

BM: I did. I was only in Denver

for three years. They then moved

me to Florida and on to Detroit,

then finally to Dallas. We arrived

here in 1984 and have called this

home ever since, matter of fact we

live in the same original house in

Plano.

BK: So tell me how you and

Anne met?

BM: Now that’s kind of interesting.

We met while both at U of D,

I was in a fraternity and she was in

a sorority and we hung in the same

circles. I knew who she was but

that was about it. Then about two

years later I was skiing at Copper

Mountain, CO. and in those days

if you were going up ski lift you

would yell “single” to let someone

know that you needed a lift partner;

to my surprise who joins me is

Anne. So with that after some time

we started to date. Then it was St

Patrick’s Day we were at a party

and my roommate said he was sure

going to miss me when I moved to

Florida, well I kind of neglected to

tell Anne that little detail (laughing).

So we did this long distance

romance for a bit then married in

1977.

BK: Ok let’s talk cars, what was

your first?

BM: My dad bought me a 1966

VW Beetle for my sixteenth birthday,

think they stickered for like

$2,000.

BK: And what’s your memory of

always wanting a Porsche?

BM: I always thought they were

a cool car as a kid and a guy in our

neighborhood had one. But I think

what really did it was when I

lived in Florida and went to

Sebring. I was hanging around

with some car guys and we

attended a race and a Vette

and a 934 were racing down

the track towards the turn we

were in. Well when the two

cars braked coming into the

turn the 934 then just shot

out of it. I just remember the

sound of the engine.

BK: Now I understand you

had a brief brush with history

at Watkins Glen?

BM: Well not sure about history

but we were at the Glen for the F1

race, think it was around 1978 and

Mario Andretti was doing some pre

race laps when suddenly he crashes.

Well I had my 8mm video camera

rolling and caught the whole thing;

the friend I was with said he didn’t

think the CBS cameras caught that.

So we go over to the CBS tent and

tell them what happened and that I

caught it on film. Well sure enough

they hadn’t captured it and bought

my footage and used on TV for

the opening segment; they paid me

$400 in which we promptly bought

a washer and dryer (laughing).


BK: So tell me about your car?

BM: Well it’s a 2009 Meteorite

Grey Metallic 997.2 over Black; we

bought it in 2013 from Boardwalk

Porsche and joined the club the

same day.

997 along the Talihena Highway

BK: I understand you and Anne

attend a lot of club events?

BM: We do. We try to get out

to Mavs & Mochas, some of the

tours, socials now and then and we

have been to Palooza twice.

BK: Oh yes let’s talk about

Palooza; I also recall you were

awarded the “buck stops here”

award at Founders Day?

BM: Oh geez talk about a day

to remember, or as Anne would

say forget (laughing). It was

the first drive of what was a

three day tour, the morning

was just perfect. We all took

off, think there 20-25 cars in

the group and we head out

on the perfect road. Well,

the group approaches and

about half the cars passed

a garbage truck. We were

next to pass the truck so

we accelerated around the

truck to find the lead cars

well ahead and gone so we

decide to keep the speed down to

about 45 as to let the 10-12 cars

behind us catch up with us. About

this time I had this strange feeling

that someone or thing was watching

us. Well someone was! It was

a deer and I swear our eyes locked

on each other! Not sure who’s eyes

got larger (laughing). Next thing I

know the deer leaps and flies into

the left front of the car, hits us and

runs off into the woods. So we stop

to assess the damage and decide we

could continue to drive, but little

did we know we were leaking radiator

fluid badly and only made it

another couple miles. Lucky for us

one of the sponsors of the drive was

Ozark Import Specialist in Fayetteville.

We had the car flat bedded

and they had us back on the road

the next day.

So there you have it! If Bob

and Anne had not decided to join

us for coffee at Pearl Cup for our

then Porsche DFW Cars and Coffee

we might have never met even

after spending over 35 years with

the same company.

Now that’s Driving Friendships.

Maverick Tour Preview: Stop! Smell the Bluebonnets!

By Mark Pitarresi, Region Tours Co-Chair

Welcome to the second annual

Maverick Bluebonnet Tour! This

year’s Tour will be just southeast

of Dallas. Ennis is the official Bluebonnet

City of Texas.

Typically the bluebonnets peak

around the third week of

April. However, this can vary

year to year due to weather

conditions and terrain, so we

have chosen Sunday April 15

for this year’s tour. This time

we’ll witness a sneak preview

one week before Ennis has

their annual Bluebonnet Festival.

That’s right -- this attraction is so

popular that the city of Ennis actually

celebrates it with an annual festival!

It has been said that they have

over 100,000 visitors that come to

see their famous Bluebonnet Trails in

the spring for the wildflower show.

The tour will be approximately

1 hour 37 minutes and 68.8 miles

long. Last year we had some construction

and some bumpy roads to

deal with, but this year we crossed

The Ennis Bluebonnet Trails are the oldest

such trails known in the state. Country

scenery, twisty roads, elevation change,

long straights and bluebonnets will be

expected!

out most of the bumpy roads, and

the construction from last year is

all fresh and oh-so-smooth. At the

time this article was written there

was no construction on this route.

While doing a recon drive for this

tour, my daughter and I were having

so much fun that we had to

pull over a few times and take in

the moment. We will be stopping to

view the bluebonnets in a classified

area on this route. I can assure you

that it’s probably one of the best

places to take in the bluebonnets!

The tour starts at 10 am at Red

Oak Middle School, located at 154

Louise Ritter Blvd in Red Oak, TX

75154. The tour will end at Bubba’s

BBQ and Steak House at 210 S. I-45,

Ennis, TX 75119. Bubba’s BBQ is

famous for great food, and can accommodate

about 110 people. Our

tours are generally larger than that,

but there are several other places to

eat in the area.

Our First Timers’ Drivers’ Briefing

will start at 9:45 am, and our

normal Drivers’ Briefing will

start at 10 am. Most of our

tour members arrive early to

socialize and take in the variety

of Porsches. Arriving early

also helps our volunteers in

signing you in on time so the

tour is on schedule.

You can register for this tour at

asp. You will have two classes to

choose from. Select Vintage class if

your car is older, or if you prefer a

more relaxed tour. Select Modern

class if you prefer the same tour

experience we have been providing

in the past. However, it is ultimately

your choice, no matter which model

you drive. After registering we will

send you an email three days before

the tour with all the information

needed to attend.

The Porsche Effect: A Taste of the Petersen Museum

By Michael McGrath

images courtesy of Author

Founded on June 11, 1994, by magazine publisher

Robert E. Petersen and his wife Margie, the $40 million

Petersen Automotive Museum, on Wilshire Blvd in Los

Angeles, CA, is owned and operated by the Petersen

Automotive Museum Foundation.

diagrams of the model evolution through the years.

Photographs also adorn the walls illustrating the history

of the Porsche family, the leaders of the organization

over time, and the evolution of the factories and

special projects.

In 2015, the museum underwent an extensive

$125 million renovation. The building’s façade was

redesigned by the architectural firm Kohn Peterson

Fox, and features a stainless steel ribbon assembly

made of 100 tons of 14-gauge type 304 steel in 308

sections, 25 supports, and 140,000 custom stainlesssteel

screws.

In February 2018 the museum launched a new

exhibit known as “The Porsche Effect.” The exhibit

runs through January of 2019. This is one of the

largest collections of Porsche automobiles and artifacts

in one location outside of Stuttgart, Germany.

It is designed to tell the story of Porsche through the

years and the company’s influence on culture, as well

as illustrate the passion that exists for the cars and

the brand.

As soon as you enter the museum you

are surrounded by amazing Porsche history.

I stopped in my tracks to gaze at the 904

Carrera GTS and the 910 racing car. This is followed

by no less than two GT1s. Then as you wander

past the ticket stand you find a deep blue 918 Hybrid,

a 1956 550 RS Spyder, and the one car that I stopped

and stared at for a very long time admiring its beauty: a

1951 Sauter Porsche 356 Roadster.

Once you have your entry ticket, you are free to

enter the main exhibit of 28 vehicles in the Mullin

Family Grand Salon. Upon entry you are greeted by a

sleek 1939 Porsche Type 64 60K10 in gloss black. The

aerodynamic styling of this vehicle must have made it

appear as it was from out of the future in 1939! This

two seat compact coupe was conceived for a planned

race from Berlin to Rome in late 1939. This smooth

aerodynamic styling influenced the next model to come

-- the 356. From the Type 64 you are escorted through

time and the history of Porsche, as you are treated to

original scale models for product development, original

drawings, schematics, and other historic documents.

The walls of the museum are full of interesting information

about the company history, as well as full scale

As you snake past the artifacts and around the perforated

dividers, you are greeted by a pristine example of

the 1955 356 Cabriolet, briefly referred to as the “Continental.”

The Continental was conceived by influential

New York importer Max Hoffman, who believed that

the American market would be more likely to embrace

a vehicle with an evocative name, rather than a mere

number designation. Porsche was forced to re-badge the

Continental when Ford informed them that they had

already trademarked that name. As a result, few Continentals

were produced and the name briefly changed to

“European,” then back to 356.

18 April


The center area of the exhibit is dedicated to The

Porsche Club of America. Large graphic images of

Panorama cover pages adorn the walls, and there is a large

display of historic artifacts from the club. Many years’

worth of historic radiator badges are displayed. The

Also displayed in this area is the very limited 2016

991 GTS Club Coupe. The very existence of this vehicle

demonstrates the close relationship between Porsche

and the Porsche Club of America (PCA). This car was

produced in honor of PCA’s 60th anniversary.

The next section was my

personal favorite: a collection

of Porsche racing cars. The first

vehicle in the display is the 1955

550/1500 RS Spyder, Chassis

0073. The mid-engine Spyder

was the first production Porsche

specially developed for racing.

The aluminum body and tubeframe

chassis reduced weight,

while the 110 horsepower fourcam

flat-4 engine gave racewinning

performance. Porsche

also utilized wind tunnel testing

to perfect the shape of the

Spyder and improve the airflow.

The 550 was an overall success

on the track, including this example

which finished second in

points in its SCCA class for the

1956 season.

Other race cars on display

include the 1966 Carrera 6, 2008 RS Spyder, 1983

956, and a 1985 959 “Paris Dakar.” Two iconic 24

Hours of Le Mans-winning models are also included:

a Gulf-livery 917K, and the more recent 2015 919 Hybrid

that was part of the team that kicked off the most

recent “Hat Trick” of successive wins at Le Mans in

2015, 2016, and 2017. Power in the 919 comes from

a 500-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline

engine and a 400+ horsepower electric motor that derives

power from a combination of reclaimed braking

and exhaust energy. This chassis came in second in

the 2015 Le Mans race and won the 6 hour events at

COTA, the Nürburgring, and Fuji.

Clockwise from oppostite page: 550 Spyder 1500, 2016 991 GTS

Club Coupe, 917 in Gulf Livery, 1955 356 Continental. View the

entire catalog: http://bit.ly/porscheeffect

120,000-member-strong club (over 144 regions) makes

this club unique among fans of automobile marques in

both size and complexity. The “Porsche Parade,” an

annual national convention of PCA members, is often

staged in smaller American cities where the dramatic

influx of members and their vehicles creates the

maximum “Porsche Effect.”

The exhibit also includes several interesting prototypes,

historic advertising, Porsche Design products,

and company contributions to other pursuits such as

cycling and snow sledding. The Petersen Automotive

Museum exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to

examine a purposefully selected array of Porsche vehicles

whose designs both celebrate and challenge the

firm’s engineering tradition. Together

they provide a means to understand

how so small a company has come to

wield so large an influence, an influence

that can only be described as

“The Porsche Effect”

ABCDE: All British & European Car Day

By Bill Kruder, Coffee Meets Chair

photos by Andrew Barber

The 34th Annual Exposition is

set for Sunday May 6, 2018 at White

Rock Lake Park Dreyfuss Club Point.

The location is Buckner Blvd and Lake

Highlands Drive, and I invite you to

come out! This will be our second year

to motor over and participate as a club.

Last year we had nearly 30 members

attend braving the winds that literally

created white caps on the lake. Despite

the weather, we enjoyed some cool cars

and captured some great photos!

This year, for our second

annual attendance as a club,

we would like our Porsches to

have an even bigger showing.

If you have never attended on your

own, it’s one of the best venues in Dallas

for a car show. The lake view is

great, and the exposition sports a wide

range of vintage cars, from pristine

Rolls Royces to classic Triumphs. With

our club joining the event last year,

we certainly were one of the biggest

marquees in attendance! Last year,

Rob Wallace won our class with his

perfectly presented 1973 Phoenix

Red 914/4.

Lastly, ABCDE is supporting

the scholarship fund of the RPM

Foundation to further the careers

of craftsmen and women who desire to

restore, maintain, and preserve vintage

automobiles. Maverick Region generated

$750 in entry fee contributions,

and the club donated another $250 for

a very cool $1000.

So, if you are interested in spending

your Sunday afternoon with some of

the best vintage cars from Europe, at

a spectacular venue, and with some of

your best friends, we would like to see

you there!

Registration for the All British &

European Car Day is $25 per vehicle.

Online registration closes Thursday,

May 3 at 11:59pm. More club details

will follow, but be sure to register your

car at www.allbritishcarday.com and

mark your calendar for what should

prove to be a great day.

When 1+1=3: How Tall is Tall Enough For a Garage Lift?

By Jim Hirsch

photos provided by author

How many Mavericks have

more cars than garage space to

park? After many years of living

with three cars and a double

garage, I made a purchase last fall

that required me to re-think how to

properly store all three vehicles.

In the past, I simply jockeyed

the cars around in the driveway as

needed, with one usually relegated

to the outdoor parking space under

a high quality cover. Yes, severe

storms, especially hail, always

created some anxiety as even the

best outdoor cover doesn’t provide

enough padding to protect from

large hail. Adding extra layers and

strapping everything down was the

best protection I could give.

That said, back to this fall’s

Porsche purchase. A long time

Maverick Region member was

letting go of his 1986 Porsche 944

Turbo after 24 years of enjoyment.

I happened to be in the

right place at the right time

and convinced him I should

be the next caretaker of

this beautiful piece of 80’s

Porsche history.

That presented the dilemma –

none of the three cars we currently

owned could afford to sit outside

any longer. I didn’t even want to

think of renting or purchasing a

remote parking spot since driving

any of these at a moment’s whim is

the point of having more cars than

people in our household.

The solution? A four-post

parking lift. The challenge? A

typical 1993 home with a 20’X20’

garage with a ceiling height of 9’ 2”.

Most people said “no way” when I

began researching lift options. Long

story short, my

research paid

off with a

solution that fits

both Porsches

in our garage

with room to

spare in a single

spot.

First, your

garage door itself

is a primary

limiting factor.

Standard height

rails keep your

raised door

around 7’ 6”

off the ground.

No matter how you park a car on

a lift, you will need more than 8’

of garage door clearance for that

upper car to fit under the door. The

easy solution? Replace the existing

rails with a high-lift option (more

vertical lift before going horizontal)

and add a wall mounted lift opener.

I used a LiftMaster 8500 series.

Next, do your math. With

the right lift, you only need to

accommodate the combined height

of the two cars you plan to park

on the lift plus 8”. In my case, my

cars were 50.1” and 50.4” tall, so

I needed a total of 109” and had

110” height in my garage, so I

was good to go. Here are my two

Porsches tucked nicely into their

single garage space.

Of course, not all lifts work

properly within that formula. You

need to purchase one that has

adjustable lock rails, plus needs

only one inch of raise to unlock.

My best advice if you’re thinking

of getting a lift for your garage?

Stop by and see one in operation

and take as many measurements

as you can to see how things will

fit in your garage. Like most

recommendations, our members

will have all manners of favorites. I

have Greg and Julia Cleath to thank

for letting me spend time with their

lift, even though they have a much

higher garage height and depth

than I do.

The key to me in addition to a

high quality lift is the installer. Mine

spent the necessary time with me to

park and re-park the Porsches in

both “bunks” and then dialed in

my adjustable locks perfectly.

With a little studying and

planning, that’s how I made 1 +1 =

3 in our limited garage space.

Help Wanted: Introducing the DE Work/Drive Program

By Wayne Elliott, Region Safety Co-Chair

photos by Bill Orr

Have you ever wanted to find out what it feels like to

drive on a race track, but were unwilling to shell out the

$300+ to attend one of the clubs’ Drivers’ Education

events? Well, here’s an opportunity to do it for free!

Part of what the club provides in return for your

entry fee are the people who keep you safe on the track

and keep everything running smoothly throughout the

day. We need a larger pool of workers, so we’ve begun

a work/drive program that benefits everyone. Work one

weekend and you get a credit to drive a weekend in

the future. You’ll be paired with an experienced safety

worker, and get to watch the cars at speed from a

vantage point like no other.

If you’ve ever participated in DE events in the

past, this will give you a greater appreciation

for what those guys and gals in the white suits

do at the corners. You’ll never again miss or ignore

a flag, or have to try to remember what exactly that

flag color means. If you haven’t participated in DEs,

this program will give you a great introduction into the

sport, and maybe even turn you into a “track rat.”

Lastly, if you don’t develop an interest in driving,

you can continue to work future events and get paid

$100 or more per day for your time.

Maverick Moments: This month in Maverick History

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

images courtesy University of North Texas Libraries

Before I began laying out my first issue of

Slipstream, I thought it might be a good idea to

look back. Any club with cars and 55 years of

history must have some pretty good memories. I’ve

found that to be an understatement.

Looking through the back issues of Slipstream

I have come across some great articles, wonderful

photos and art, but most of all I have found stories

of lasting friendship and a passion for Porsche

throughout the years .

Slipstream through the years: 1977, 1978, 1984, 1987

Beautiful artwork

from 1975

Slipstream, April 1964

In the coming year, I will occasionally dip into

the Slipstream past and share some tidbits that

spark my interest. I hope they do they same for you.

“Expecting a room full of old fogey stuffed shirts that all paid for their little darlings

with cash, Pat stuffed all her courage in her pocket and went to the DFW Hilton for

the March ‘86 dinner meeting. The March program was the “Talent Show”. She saw

the club president plinking on a banjo; the treasurer, co-vice-president, and membership chairman dancing with “Mona”

to the BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE, and the best Joe Cocker in the metroplex. And throughout the entire evening was

warned repeatedly to “watch out for Carl”. She felt right at home!!! ‘It was a relief to see these are normal people.’”

– excerpt of Jan Mayo’s Profile of Pat Hildreth, 1987

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

Hello, my name is Kurt Scaggs. I am your newest

editor of Slipstream. You might have noticed some

changes in the newsletter this month. I can assure

you, it’s a new look, but the same great taste.

Jim has told me who the trouble makers are, so you can

put your pens down. Actually that’s not the case at all.

Jim has had nothing but great things to say about being

editor and has been amazing getting me up to speed.

I hope you like the changes, but if you see something

that can be improved upon I am only a click or two away.

Outside of Slipstream I am a creative director in the

retail packaging business. That’s a fancy way of saying

that I’m a designer. That might go a long way towards

explaining my inability to leave well enough alone.

I would like to join the many, many members who

have thanked Jim for his tireless efforts to create this

publication every month. The countless contributions

he’s made to the club have made a lasting impact. His

passion has made Slipstream what it is today and with

his help, we will continue on that path.

On the subject of past editors, and I’d like to recognize

that past editors like Fran Ussery, Julia Underwood,

Carey Spreen and Wendy Shoffit (I’m missing many, so

please pardon my brevity) are pretty big acts to follow.

These names should be familiar to everyone that enjoys

Slipstream as they are regular contributors to the club.

I could go on about the efforts and contributions of

so many that you see on these pages and many more

that you don’t. They make this club run, well, like a

Porsche. If you would like to be a part of the great team

that makes the club run, join us at the next board

meeting at Hackberry Country Club. Enjoy the Drive!

Congratulations to

the Maverick Region’s

newest power couple,

Bill and Debi Kruder.
