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
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
1235 William D. Tate Ave
Grapevine, TX 76051
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
BK: What did you do after
BM: Right after graduating
college in 1973 I started with
J.C.Penney. They hired me as Field
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
BK: So tell me how you and
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
BK: Ok let’s talk cars, what was
BM: My dad bought me a 1966
VW Beetle for my sixteenth birthday,
think they stickered for like
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
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
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,

The Porsche Effect: A Taste of the Petersen Museum
By Michael McGrath

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
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
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
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.
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
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
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.

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

ABCDE: All British & European Car Day

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
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
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

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
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
off with a
solution that fits
in our garage
with room to
spare in a single
garage door itself
is a primary
rails keep your
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.
For more information, please contact Wayne Elliott at
817-996-7447 or email@example.com.
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
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.’”

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!
the Maverick Region’s
newest power couple,
Bill and Debi Kruder.
