SPROCKETS: Porsche in Pop Culture<br />

By David Robertson, Region President<br />

Porsche: there is no substitute. When I was a kid,<br />

this tagline resonated with me, because that is what<br />

Tom Cruise said in the movie Risky Business as he was,<br />

well, just being really cool driving around in a 928. I<br />

watched that movie over and over again, thinking the<br />

928 was just about the greatest car I had ever seen.<br />

Porsche certainly knew what they were<br />

doing with their product placement because<br />

from the day Risky Business came out in<br />

1983, way before I could drive, I had to have<br />

a Porsche.<br />

Sixteen Candles was another great Porsche<br />

placement movie for youngsters trying to decide which<br />

car brands to obsess over for the rest of their lives.<br />

After watching this movie, I decided that I needed to<br />

have a 944 just like Jake. If you don’t remember, Jake<br />

was the tall, handsome jock who all the cheerleaders<br />

wanted to date. Jake actually had a crush on Samantha<br />

(Molly Ringwald) who was the shy nerdy girl whose<br />

sister always got all the attention. Are you with me so<br />

far? Through a series of 1980s teen movie hilarities,<br />

Samantha and Jake keep missing each other, until the<br />

very end of the movie. The crowd clears and there is<br />

Jake leaning on his 944 asking for Samantha to come<br />

over and ride off into forever bliss in a red 944. The guy<br />

gets the girl with the big hair and they drive off into the<br />

sunset in what I would imagine was Jake’s second or<br />

third high school Porsche. It was also about this time<br />

that I was introduced to the harsh concept of reality<br />

vs fantasy, and unlike Jake, I would not be driving a<br />

Porsche in high school under any circumstances.<br />

When Sixteen Candles came out, I envisioned my<br />

own version of the last scene in my mind. Just like<br />

Jake I was a really cool high school Porsche guy, but in<br />

this version I am standing next to my 928 from Risky<br />

Business. As I am waiting for the crowd to clear, I catch<br />

the eye of my slightly nerdy high school crush across the<br />

street, as she is reluctantly leaving with her parents to<br />

go to her much more popular sister’s wedding reception.<br />

As she is walking over she turns to her parents and very<br />

excitedly mouths “This is the guy!” and of course they<br />

tell her to run off with me instead of going to her sister’s<br />

dumb wedding reception. I can see the pride in her<br />

father’s eyes as his daughter and I head off for a joyride<br />

on the twisty and mostly un-patrolled back roads of<br />

Rusk County in East Texas, driving one of the fastest<br />

and most powerful production cars of that era. As an<br />

SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor<br />

adult I can now see that there were a few minor flaws in<br />

my teen fantasy, but at the time it seemed pretty doable<br />

as long as I could just get my hands on a Porsche 928<br />

and a driver’s license.<br />

MAV OF THE MONTH: Jim Hirsch<br />

This month, Jim Hirsch officially turns over the Editor<br />

role of <strong>Slipstream</strong>. When he joined the Mavericks in 2014<br />

he immediately jumped in, and after a short training<br />

period, took over as Editor of our monthly newsletter.<br />

In that time, Jim<br />

has worked more<br />

hours than any<br />

of us will ever<br />

know to create a<br />

publication that<br />

has only gotten<br />

better month<br />

after month. Jim<br />

has also applied<br />

the same care<br />

and meticulous attention to detail in finding a new<br />

Editor and assuring a smooth transition.<br />

Although stepping away from the <strong>Slipstream</strong> role, Jim<br />

will continue to be a big part of the Maverick Region,<br />

working with Mavs & Mochas as well as jumping in<br />

where needed to make our club better by the day!<br />

Preview: May at Mayo’s <strong>2018</strong><br />

By Debi Kruder<br />

It’s that time of year, when our Porsches are enjoying<br />

the sunshine and are ready for some outdoor fun with<br />

fellow Mavs! Yes, that’s right, it’s May at Mayo’s on<br />

Saturday, May 5! As in past years, Mayo Performance<br />

is clearing their garage so we can eat, drink, and spend<br />

time driving friendships. While the venue is the same as<br />

in years past, the menu (both food and events) is quite<br />

different and promises to be great fun!<br />

Be sure to arrive on time at 11 am to check in for your<br />

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

that, you say? Well, you’ll be paired with new and old<br />

Mavs to form a team. Your team will work together to<br />

find the Porsche in the lot that matches the “Porsche<br />

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

great way to meet new folks and their cars. Mavs who<br />

participate in the game and submit their answers will<br />

all receive our cool May at Mayo’s car decal. Members<br />

on winning teams will have their names submitted in<br />

a drawing for one of three premium prizes provided<br />

by our partners Nordstrom, Mayo Performance, and<br />

Silver Fox.<br />

What’s on the food menu, you ask? Well it’s on<br />

wheels too! We are happy to have both The Butcher’s<br />

Son and the Texas Burrito Company gourmet food<br />

trucks serving us burritos, tacos, quesadillas, sliders,<br />

and gourmet sandwiches, all paired with chips and a<br />

drink! Want to cool off? Grab<br />

a delicious treat from Steel City<br />

Pops as you walk and admire<br />

both classic and new Porsches.<br />

We are excited to welcome one of our new charitable<br />

organizations: Patriot PAWS!<br />

The mission of Patriot PAWS<br />

is to train and provide<br />

service dogs of the highest quality, at<br />

no cost, to disabled American veterans<br />

and others with mobile disabilities<br />

and PTSD in order to help restore<br />

their physical and emotional independence.<br />

Our goal is for Maverick PCA to raise enough<br />

to provide a service dog in <strong>2018</strong>. You can make a<br />

contribution online when registering for May at Mayo’s<br />

or at the event.<br />

Registration for May at Mayo’s is available online<br />

and is $20 per person. Registration is required. Your<br />

registration fee includes your entrée of choice from the<br />

gourmet food trucks, chips, soft drink or water, and a<br />

gourmet ice pop, not to mention a chance at premium<br />

prizes!<br />

What’s happened to the People’s Choice Car Show,<br />

historically at May at Mayo’s? Well, it’s moved to<br />

Sunday, June 24, with location and registration<br />

information coming soon. So mark your calendars for<br />

Saturday, May 5 from 11 am to 1 pm, and go online to<br />

register for May at Mayo’s today! With great food,<br />

friends, and Porsches, it’s sure to be a great time!<br />

Autocross Series: The <strong>2018</strong> Season is underway<br />

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair<br />

photos by LightSpeed Images<br />

Event #1 of the 10 event series was held<br />

at Lone Star Park, the excellent site for these<br />

events, in Grand Prairie, on February 25th.<br />

110 drivers made at least 6 attempts at quick times<br />

without knocking over any two second penalty<br />

cones. Fifteen Porsche drivers competed in six classes.<br />

Significant others came out to drive again and made up<br />

a third of our entries. The new 991 GT3 RS, co-driven<br />

by Ryan Harris and Marc Nemati, decided to run the<br />

SCCA SSP class and were a lot of fun to watch negotiate<br />

this relatively fast course. The largest Porsche class P-4<br />

had two drivers entered in each of the three cars for<br />

some close competition.<br />

Amir El-Baghdady brought out his beautiful 944<br />

S2 Cabriolet and was really tossing it around for three<br />

runs. Something gave up on his 4th run so he had to<br />

ride a flatbed home that afternoon. Hope he gets that<br />

fixed and comes back soon. Carolle Liu is starting<br />

her second season and had Amir worried. She is signed<br />

up for the autocross school March 17th and all events<br />

this season.<br />

Ronald and Hubert Wong brought out their 997 and<br />

991’s, complete with baby seats in the rear. Ronald’s<br />

997 Cab was faster this time. It must have been because<br />

he had two baby seats in his car!<br />

Steve and Sherry Farnam brought their beautiful<br />

yellow Cayman GT4 from Southern Texas and chased<br />

each other down in class P3. We hope to keep seeing<br />

them at our events.<br />

Class P4 was the 914 and 924S class at this event.<br />

Sigrid almost successfully “skirted” Mark with her final<br />

fastest time, but clipped a cone to let him win this time.<br />

Ryan Harris / Marc Nemati 991 GT3 RS<br />

Carey Spreen and Sue Crimm brought out their fresh<br />

re-built engine in the 924S and are going to be a threat<br />

in this class when they sort out how quick that car really<br />

is. Ed Mayo and Julia Underwood left the 911s at home<br />

this time and brought the second 914<br />

in this class.<br />

Doug Edney ran alone in class P7<br />

this time. I understand he has some<br />

new suspension parts to put in and<br />

look forward to seeing his low-rider<br />

996 at the next event.<br />

The autocross drivers school<br />

March 17th at Mineral Wells was sold<br />

out and the event that follow on the<br />

18th is a Mirror-Cross. This means a<br />

Christmas Tree Light side by side drag<br />

race start on mirror image courses set<br />

up side by side. After each run, the<br />

cars swap sides and do it again. The<br />

Mineral Wells site is excellent for these<br />

format events and a lot of fun. There are<br />

two more of these scheduled in <strong>2018</strong>.<br />

Watch the calendar in <strong>Slipstream</strong>, on the website<br />

events this season.<br />

Mavs & Mochas Recap: Zims Autotechnik<br />

By Rich Johnson<br />

photos by Andrew Barber and Kirk Pruitt<br />

Speechless! No words can fully explain this spring<br />

morning at Zims.<br />

If I could wind the clock back to the very first<br />

914 event Diane and I attended, that we call<br />

“the 914 Woodstock,” this gathering had the<br />

same Porsche magic.<br />

a few 914s together, but when 27 show up, you are<br />

speechless! Someone mentioned that ten 914s showed<br />

for the Rennsport event. I’m thinking they might want<br />

to visit DFW.<br />

Yes, the 914s were well-represented, but not the<br />

only members of the Porsche family to join us. Over<br />

a hundred and seventy other Porsches made it out for<br />

morning coffee. As you walked the Zims lot, every<br />

turn you made revealed something better than the last.<br />

Pristine 356s from the Tub Club and lots of air-cooled<br />

911s and 996s showed their pride. Turbos, Cabs,<br />

Targas, and several slant-nose 911s, not to mention<br />

the transaxle cars, like Andy Kay’s beautiful 928 and<br />

Rob Adams’ spectacular 968. Lastly, there was the<br />

incredible <strong>2018</strong> Panamera Sport Turismo from Park<br />

Place Porsche, our official sponsor of Mavs & Mochas.<br />

It was March 1, 1968 when the first 914 was<br />

introduced to the world. Once considered the ugly<br />

duckling of the Porsche family, the 914 has now become<br />

appreciated for its mid-engine design, great handling,<br />

and open-air fun.<br />

Now let’s talk<br />

about the people and<br />

coffee. The crowd<br />

was amazing, with<br />

close to two hundred<br />

people, young and<br />

old, walking and<br />

talking cars. Al<br />

Zim, our host, was<br />

out mingling in the<br />

crowd, as was Ed<br />

Mayo, not to mention<br />

Alan Bambina; all<br />

three Mavericks and<br />

club legends. The<br />

coffee -- well let’s<br />

just say thanks to<br />

Felix coffee; it flowed<br />

nonstop for nearly<br />

two hours.<br />

above: Jim Hirsch, Kirk Pruitt and Bill Kruder<br />

below: <strong>2018</strong> Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo<br />

On Saturday, March 10 we<br />

celebrated 50 years of the 914,<br />

and celebrate we did, with<br />

nearly 30 914s in attendance.<br />

We had several original 1970<br />

914/6s, many four-cylinder<br />

cars, a few “restomods,”<br />

some six conversions, a V8,<br />

and a couple of “works in<br />

progress.” We had planned<br />

for 16 cars, and it’s safe to say<br />

most people never see even<br />

As many of you<br />

know, each month at<br />

our Mavs & Mochas<br />

we try to feature a<br />

significant anniversary or milestone in Porsche history.<br />

So if you missed this one, you missed one for the ages,<br />

but mark your calendar and join us next month. We<br />

will be out again at North Park, celebrating the ‘60s<br />

cars and driving friendships.<br />

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

appearance Rennsport Reunion V in 2015 might have been more than 10, but<br />

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

Kruder’s Cars & Conversation<br />

By Bill Kruder<br />

photos courtesy of Bob Molyneux<br />

This month’s “conversation”<br />

one could say was 35 plus years in<br />

the making.<br />

When we first met a couple years<br />

ago we learned we both had worked<br />

for J.C. Penney for well over three<br />

decades and had never met. Matter<br />

of fact my lifelong friend and mentor’s<br />

wife is best friends with his<br />

wife, yet that never came up. So it<br />

took Porsches, years after we both<br />

retired, to finally meet and strike up<br />

a friendship for the ages.<br />

So here is the next in my series<br />

of “conversations” I would like to<br />

share with you…<br />

Bob Molyneux, member<br />

since 2013, Owner 2009<br />

Carrera (997.2)<br />

Bill Kruder: So are you<br />

originally from here?<br />

Bob Molyneux: No I grew<br />

up in Downey, Ca. and stayed<br />

there till I left for college. It<br />

was a great place to live, I was<br />

thirty minutes to the beach<br />

so I surfed as a teenager and<br />

I was about an hour from the<br />

mountains so I skied too.<br />

BK: And where did you head off<br />

to for college?<br />

BM: Well I stayed close to home<br />

for the first two years attending<br />

Cerritos Junior College. I worked<br />

out my schedule so I could surf<br />

and go to school, some days I did<br />

both (laughing). After two years<br />

there I transferred to the University<br />

of Denver and got my B.S. in<br />

Accounting.<br />

BK: What did you do after<br />

college?<br />

BM: Right after graduating<br />

college in 1973 I started with<br />

J.C.Penney. They hired me as Field<br />

12 <strong>April</strong><br />

Auditor out of the Denver office,<br />

which was actually a satellite office<br />

for Dallas. Now this was long<br />

before the company ever thought of<br />

moving its headquarters to Plano.<br />

BK: I understand that you moved<br />

a few times?<br />

BM: I did. I was only in Denver<br />

for three years. They then moved<br />

me to Florida and on to Detroit,<br />

then finally to Dallas. We arrived<br />

here in 1984 and have called this<br />

home ever since, matter of fact we<br />

live in the same original house in<br />

Plano.<br />

BK: So tell me how you and<br />

Anne met?<br />

BM: Now that’s kind of interesting.<br />

We met while both at U of D,<br />

I was in a fraternity and she was in<br />

a sorority and we hung in the same<br />

circles. I knew who she was but<br />

that was about it. Then about two<br />

years later I was skiing at Copper<br />

Mountain, CO. and in those days<br />

if you were going up ski lift you<br />

would yell “single” to let someone<br />

know that you needed a lift partner;<br />

to my surprise who joins me is<br />

Anne. So with that after some time<br />

we started to date. Then it was St<br />

Patrick’s Day we were at a party<br />

and my roommate said he was sure<br />

going to miss me when I moved to<br />

Florida, well I kind of neglected to<br />

tell Anne that little detail (laughing).<br />

So we did this long distance<br />

romance for a bit then married in<br />

1977.<br />

BK: Ok let’s talk cars, what was<br />

your first?<br />

BM: My dad bought me a 1966<br />

VW Beetle for my sixteenth birthday,<br />

think they stickered for like<br />

$2,000.<br />

BK: And what’s your memory of<br />

always wanting a Porsche?<br />

BM: I always thought they were<br />

a cool car as a kid and a guy in our<br />

neighborhood had one. But I think<br />

what really did it was when I<br />

lived in Florida and went to<br />

Sebring. I was hanging around<br />

with some car guys and we<br />

attended a race and a Vette<br />

and a 934 were racing down<br />

the track towards the turn we<br />

were in. Well when the two<br />

cars braked coming into the<br />

turn the 934 then just shot<br />

out of it. I just remember the<br />

sound of the engine.<br />

BK: Now I understand you<br />

had a brief brush with history<br />

at Watkins Glen?<br />

BM: Well not sure about history<br />

but we were at the Glen for the F1<br />

race, think it was around 1978 and<br />

Mario Andretti was doing some pre<br />

race laps when suddenly he crashes.<br />

Well I had my 8mm video camera<br />

rolling and caught the whole thing;<br />

the friend I was with said he didn’t<br />

think the CBS cameras caught that.<br />

So we go over to the CBS tent and<br />

tell them what happened and that I<br />

caught it on film. Well sure enough<br />

they hadn’t captured it and bought<br />

my footage and used on TV for<br />

the opening segment; they paid me<br />

$400 in which we promptly bought<br />

a washer and dryer (laughing).


BK: So tell me about your car?<br />

BM: Well it’s a 2009 Meteorite<br />

Grey Metallic 997.2 over Black; we<br />

bought it in 2013 from Boardwalk<br />

Porsche and joined the club the<br />

same day.<br />

997 along the Talihena Highway<br />

BK: I understand you and Anne<br />

attend a lot of club events?<br />

BM: We do. We try to get out<br />

to Mavs & Mochas, some of the<br />

tours, socials now and then and we<br />

have been to Palooza twice.<br />

BK: Oh yes let’s talk about<br />

Palooza; I also recall you were<br />

awarded the “buck stops here”<br />

award at Founders Day?<br />

BM: Oh geez talk about a day<br />

to remember, or as Anne would<br />

say forget (laughing). It was<br />

the first drive of what was a<br />

three day tour, the morning<br />

was just perfect. We all took<br />

off, think there 20-25 cars in<br />

the group and we head out<br />

on the perfect road. Well,<br />

the group approaches and<br />

about half the cars passed<br />

a garbage truck. We were<br />

next to pass the truck so<br />

we accelerated around the<br />

truck to find the lead cars<br />

well ahead and gone so we<br />

decide to keep the speed down to<br />

about 45 as to let the 10-12 cars<br />

behind us catch up with us. About<br />

this time I had this strange feeling<br />

that someone or thing was watching<br />

us. Well someone was! It was<br />

a deer and I swear our eyes locked<br />

on each other! Not sure who’s eyes<br />

got larger (laughing). Next thing I<br />

know the deer leaps and flies into<br />

the left front of the car, hits us and<br />

runs off into the woods. So we stop<br />

to assess the damage and decide we<br />

could continue to drive, but little<br />

did we know we were leaking radiator<br />

fluid badly and only made it<br />

another couple miles. Lucky for us<br />

one of the sponsors of the drive was<br />

Ozark Import Specialist in Fayetteville.<br />

We had the car flat bedded<br />

and they had us back on the road<br />

the next day.<br />

So there you have it! If Bob<br />

and Anne had not decided to join<br />

us for coffee at Pearl Cup for our<br />

then Porsche DFW Cars and Coffee<br />

we might have never met even<br />

after spending over 35 years with<br />

the same company.<br />

Now that’s Driving Friendships.<br />

Maverick Tour Preview: Stop! Smell the Bluebonnets!<br />

By Mark Pitarresi, Region Tours Co-Chair<br />

Welcome to the second annual<br />

Maverick Bluebonnet Tour! This<br />

year’s Tour will be just southeast<br />

of Dallas. Ennis is the official Bluebonnet<br />

City of Texas.<br />

Typically the bluebonnets peak<br />

around the third week of<br />

<strong>April</strong>. However, this can vary<br />

year to year due to weather<br />

conditions and terrain, so we<br />

have chosen Sunday <strong>April</strong> 15<br />

for this year’s tour. This time<br />

we’ll witness a sneak preview<br />

one week before Ennis has<br />

their annual Bluebonnet Festival.<br />

That’s right -- this attraction is so<br />

popular that the city of Ennis actually<br />

celebrates it with an annual festival!<br />

It has been said that they have<br />

over 100,000 visitors that come to<br />

see their famous Bluebonnet Trails in<br />

the spring for the wildflower show.<br />

The tour will be approximately<br />

1 hour 37 minutes and 68.8 miles<br />

long. Last year we had some construction<br />

and some bumpy roads to<br />

deal with, but this year we crossed<br />

The Ennis Bluebonnet Trails are the oldest<br />

such trails known in the state. Country<br />

scenery, twisty roads, elevation change,<br />

long straights and bluebonnets will be<br />

expected!<br />

out most of the bumpy roads, and<br />

the construction from last year is<br />

all fresh and oh-so-smooth. At the<br />

time this article was written there<br />

was no construction on this route.<br />

While doing a recon drive for this<br />

tour, my daughter and I were having<br />

so much fun that we had to<br />

pull over a few times and take in<br />

the moment. We will be stopping to<br />

view the bluebonnets in a classified<br />

area on this route. I can assure you<br />

that it’s probably one of the best<br />

places to take in the bluebonnets!<br />

The tour starts at 10 am at Red<br />

Oak Middle School, located at 154<br />

Louise Ritter Blvd in Red Oak, TX<br />

75154. The tour will end at Bubba’s<br />

BBQ and Steak House at 210 S. I-45,<br />

Ennis, TX 75119. Bubba’s BBQ is<br />

famous for great food, and can accommodate<br />

about 110 people. Our<br />

tours are generally larger than that,<br />

but there are several other places to<br />

eat in the area.<br />

Our First Timers’ Drivers’ Briefing<br />

will start at 9:45 am, and our<br />

normal Drivers’ Briefing will<br />

start at 10 am. Most of our<br />

tour members arrive early to<br />

socialize and take in the variety<br />

of Porsches. Arriving early<br />

also helps our volunteers in<br />

signing you in on time so the<br />

tour is on schedule.<br />

You can register for this tour at<br />

http://mav.pca.org/Events/Tours.<br />

asp. You will have two classes to<br />

choose from. Select Vintage class if<br />

your car is older, or if you prefer a<br />

more relaxed tour. Select Modern<br />

class if you prefer the same tour<br />

experience we have been providing<br />

in the past. However, it is ultimately<br />

your choice, no matter which model<br />

you drive. After registering we will<br />

send you an email three days before<br />

the tour with all the information<br />

needed to attend.<br />

Upcoming Maverick Region Events


The Porsche Effect: A Taste of the Petersen Museum<br />

By Michael McGrath<br />

images courtesy of Author<br />

Founded on June 11, 1994, by magazine publisher<br />

Robert E. Petersen and his wife Margie, the $40 million<br />

Petersen Automotive Museum, on Wilshire Blvd in Los<br />

Angeles, CA, is owned and operated by the Petersen<br />

Automotive Museum Foundation.<br />

diagrams of the model evolution through the years.<br />

Photographs also adorn the walls illustrating the history<br />

of the Porsche family, the leaders of the organization<br />

over time, and the evolution of the factories and<br />

special projects.<br />

In 2015, the museum underwent an extensive<br />

$125 million renovation. The building’s façade was<br />

redesigned by the architectural firm Kohn Peterson<br />

Fox, and features a stainless steel ribbon assembly<br />

made of 100 tons of 14-gauge type 304 steel in 308<br />

sections, 25 supports, and 140,000 custom stainlesssteel<br />

screws.<br />

In February <strong>2018</strong> the museum launched a new<br />

exhibit known as “The Porsche Effect.” The exhibit<br />

runs through January of 2019. This is one of the<br />

largest collections of Porsche automobiles and artifacts<br />

in one location outside of Stuttgart, Germany.<br />

It is designed to tell the story of Porsche through the<br />

years and the company’s influence on culture, as well<br />

as illustrate the passion that exists for the cars and<br />

the brand.<br />

As soon as you enter the museum you<br />

are surrounded by amazing Porsche history.<br />

I stopped in my tracks to gaze at the 904<br />

Carrera GTS and the 910 racing car. This is followed<br />

by no less than two GT1s. Then as you wander<br />

past the ticket stand you find a deep blue 918 Hybrid,<br />

a 1956 550 RS Spyder, and the one car that I stopped<br />

and stared at for a very long time admiring its beauty: a<br />

1951 Sauter Porsche 356 Roadster.<br />

Once you have your entry ticket, you are free to<br />

enter the main exhibit of 28 vehicles in the Mullin<br />

Family Grand Salon. Upon entry you are greeted by a<br />

sleek 1939 Porsche Type 64 60K10 in gloss black. The<br />

aerodynamic styling of this vehicle must have made it<br />

appear as it was from out of the future in 1939! This<br />

two seat compact coupe was conceived for a planned<br />

race from Berlin to Rome in late 1939. This smooth<br />

aerodynamic styling influenced the next model to come<br />

-- the 356. From the Type 64 you are escorted through<br />

time and the history of Porsche, as you are treated to<br />

original scale models for product development, original<br />

drawings, schematics, and other historic documents.<br />

The walls of the museum are full of interesting information<br />

about the company history, as well as full scale<br />

As you snake past the artifacts and around the perforated<br />

dividers, you are greeted by a pristine example of<br />

the 1955 356 Cabriolet, briefly referred to as the “Continental.”<br />

The Continental was conceived by influential<br />

New York importer Max Hoffman, who believed that<br />

the American market would be more likely to embrace<br />

a vehicle with an evocative name, rather than a mere<br />

number designation. Porsche was forced to re-badge the<br />

Continental when Ford informed them that they had<br />

already trademarked that name. As a result, few Continentals<br />

were produced and the name briefly changed to<br />

“European,” then back to 356.<br />

18 <strong>April</strong>


The center area of the exhibit is dedicated to The<br />

Porsche Club of America. Large graphic images of<br />

Panorama cover pages adorn the walls, and there is a large<br />

display of historic artifacts from the club. Many years’<br />

worth of historic radiator badges are displayed. The<br />

Also displayed in this area is the very limited 2016<br />

991 GTS Club Coupe. The very existence of this vehicle<br />

demonstrates the close relationship between Porsche<br />

and the Porsche Club of America (PCA). This car was<br />

produced in honor of PCA’s 60th anniversary.<br />

The next section was my<br />

personal favorite: a collection<br />

of Porsche racing cars. The first<br />

vehicle in the display is the 1955<br />

550/1500 RS Spyder, Chassis<br />

0073. The mid-engine Spyder<br />

was the first production Porsche<br />

specially developed for racing.<br />

The aluminum body and tubeframe<br />

chassis reduced weight,<br />

while the 110 horsepower fourcam<br />

flat-4 engine gave racewinning<br />

performance. Porsche<br />

also utilized wind tunnel testing<br />

to perfect the shape of the<br />

Spyder and improve the airflow.<br />

The 550 was an overall success<br />

on the track, including this example<br />

which finished second in<br />

points in its SCCA class for the<br />

1956 season.<br />

Other race cars on display<br />

include the 1966 Carrera 6, 2008 RS Spyder, 1983<br />

956, and a 1985 959 “Paris Dakar.” Two iconic 24<br />

Hours of Le Mans-winning models are also included:<br />

a Gulf-livery 917K, and the more recent 2015 919 Hybrid<br />

that was part of the team that kicked off the most<br />

recent “Hat Trick” of successive wins at Le Mans in<br />

2015, 2016, and 2017. Power in the 919 comes from<br />

a 500-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline<br />

engine and a 400+ horsepower electric motor that derives<br />

power from a combination of reclaimed braking<br />

and exhaust energy. This chassis came in second in<br />

the 2015 Le Mans race and won the 6 hour events at<br />

COTA, the Nürburgring, and Fuji.<br />

Clockwise from oppostite page: 550 Spyder 1500, 2016 991 GTS<br />

Club Coupe, 917 in Gulf Livery, 1955 356 Continental. View the<br />

entire catalog: http://bit.ly/porscheeffect<br />

120,000-member-strong club (over 144 regions) makes<br />

this club unique among fans of automobile marques in<br />

both size and complexity. The “Porsche Parade,” an<br />

annual national convention of PCA members, is often<br />

staged in smaller American cities where the dramatic<br />

influx of members and their vehicles creates the<br />

maximum “Porsche Effect.”<br />

The exhibit also includes several interesting prototypes,<br />

historic advertising, Porsche Design products,<br />

and company contributions to other pursuits such as<br />

cycling and snow sledding. The Petersen Automotive<br />

Museum exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to<br />

examine a purposefully selected array of Porsche vehicles<br />

whose designs both celebrate and challenge the<br />

firm’s engineering tradition. Together<br />

they provide a means to understand<br />

how so small a company has come to<br />

wield so large an influence, an influence<br />

that can only be described as<br />

“The Porsche Effect”<br />

ABCDE: All British & European Car Day<br />

By Bill Kruder, Coffee Meets Chair<br />

photos by Andrew Barber<br />

The 34th Annual Exposition is<br />

set for Sunday May 6, <strong>2018</strong> at White<br />

Rock Lake Park Dreyfuss Club Point.<br />

The location is Buckner Blvd and Lake<br />

Highlands Drive, and I invite you to<br />

come out! This will be our second year<br />

to motor over and participate as a club.<br />

Last year we had nearly 30 members<br />

attend braving the winds that literally<br />

created white caps on the lake. Despite<br />

the weather, we enjoyed some cool cars<br />

and captured some great photos!<br />

This year, for our second<br />

annual attendance as a club,<br />

we would like our Porsches to<br />

have an even bigger showing.<br />

If you have never attended on your<br />

own, it’s one of the best venues in Dallas<br />

for a car show. The lake view is<br />

great, and the exposition sports a wide<br />

range of vintage cars, from pristine<br />

Rolls Royces to classic Triumphs. With<br />

our club joining the event last year,<br />

we certainly were one of the biggest<br />

marquees in attendance! Last year,<br />

Rob Wallace won our class with his<br />

perfectly presented 1973 Phoenix<br />

Red 914/4.<br />

Lastly, ABCDE is supporting<br />

the scholarship fund of the RPM<br />

Foundation to further the careers<br />

of craftsmen and women who desire to<br />

restore, maintain, and preserve vintage<br />

automobiles. Maverick Region generated<br />

$750 in entry fee contributions,<br />

and the club donated another $250 for<br />

a very cool $1000.<br />

So, if you are interested in spending<br />

your Sunday afternoon with some of<br />

the best vintage cars from Europe, at<br />

a spectacular venue, and with some of<br />

your best friends, we would like to see<br />

you there!<br />

Registration for the All British &<br />

European Car Day is $25 per vehicle.<br />

Online registration closes Thursday,<br />

May 3 at 11:59pm. More club details<br />

will follow, but be sure to register your<br />

car at www.allbritishcarday.com and<br />

mark your calendar for what should<br />

prove to be a great day.<br />

Porsche of the Month<br />

Selected by Bill Orr, Region Marketing Chair<br />

Platinum Silver Metallic 2014 Porsche Cayman S • Photo by Mike O’Hare<br />

You can test your<br />

knowledge (or Google<br />

search ability) of all things<br />

Porsche by participating<br />

in the monthly trivia<br />

contest posted online at<br />

http://mav.pca.org/trivia.<br />

Answers are due by the<br />

last day of each month.<br />

The winner of the<br />

trivia contest receives a<br />

$25 gift certificate from<br />

our sponsor, Zims Autotechnik. In the case of ties, a random<br />

drawing determines the winner.<br />

Scott Gray was our winner for the February <strong>2018</strong> Trivia. We<br />

had lots getting all 5 of 5 correct and used a random drawing<br />

of the 8 Members to choose the winner. We went with a Trivia<br />

that brings attention to the IMS bearing failure problem that has<br />

plagued Porsche for years. Honorable Mention, also getting all 5<br />

of 5 correct, were Tom Martin, Cyril Reif, Jim Hirsch, Tom Gomer,<br />

Carey Spreen, Hunter Bentley, and Andy Hsich. For the record,<br />

we accepted A, C, or D for question 3 as a correct answer, as that<br />

is VERY subjective and depends on your level of expertise to do<br />

it yourself, and the time taken by<br />

a Porsche dealership or Porsche<br />

specialist. The gentleman doing the<br />

video recommends changing the oil<br />

YOURSELF at home so you can<br />

carefully examine for bits of metal.<br />

Answers: 1)c 2)d 3)c 4)d 5)a<br />

When 1+1=3: How Tall is Tall Enough For a Garage Lift?<br />

By Jim Hirsch<br />

photos provided by author<br />

How many Mavericks have<br />

more cars than garage space to<br />

park? After many years of living<br />

with three cars and a double<br />

garage, I made a purchase last fall<br />

that required me to re-think how to<br />

properly store all three vehicles.<br />

In the past, I simply jockeyed<br />

the cars around in the driveway as<br />

needed, with one usually relegated<br />

to the outdoor parking space under<br />

a high quality cover. Yes, severe<br />

storms, especially hail, always<br />

created some anxiety as even the<br />

best outdoor cover doesn’t provide<br />

enough padding to protect from<br />

large hail. Adding extra layers and<br />

strapping everything down was the<br />

best protection I could give.<br />

That said, back to this fall’s<br />

Porsche purchase. A long time<br />

Maverick Region member was<br />

letting go of his 1986 Porsche 944<br />

Turbo after 24 years of enjoyment.<br />

I happened to be in the<br />

right place at the right time<br />

and convinced him I should<br />

be the next caretaker of<br />

this beautiful piece of 80’s<br />

Porsche history.<br />

That presented the dilemma –<br />

none of the three cars we currently<br />

owned could afford to sit outside<br />

any longer. I didn’t even want to<br />

think of renting or purchasing a<br />

remote parking spot since driving<br />

any of these at a moment’s whim is<br />

the point of having more cars than<br />

people in our household.<br />

The solution? A four-post<br />

parking lift. The challenge? A<br />

typical 1993 home with a 20’X20’<br />

garage with a ceiling height of 9’ 2”.<br />

Most people said “no way” when I<br />

began researching lift options. Long<br />

story short, my<br />

research paid<br />

off with a<br />

solution that fits<br />

both Porsches<br />

in our garage<br />

with room to<br />

spare in a single<br />

spot.<br />

First, your<br />

garage door itself<br />

is a primary<br />

limiting factor.<br />

Standard height<br />

rails keep your<br />

raised door<br />

around 7’ 6”<br />

off the ground.<br />

No matter how you park a car on<br />

a lift, you will need more than 8’<br />

of garage door clearance for that<br />

upper car to fit under the door. The<br />

easy solution? Replace the existing<br />

rails with a high-lift option (more<br />

vertical lift before going horizontal)<br />

and add a wall mounted lift opener.<br />

I used a LiftMaster 8500 series.<br />

Next, do your math. With<br />

the right lift, you only need to<br />

accommodate the combined height<br />

of the two cars you plan to park<br />

on the lift plus 8”. In my case, my<br />

cars were 50.1” and 50.4” tall, so<br />

I needed a total of 109” and had<br />

110” height in my garage, so I<br />

was good to go. Here are my two<br />

Porsches tucked nicely into their<br />

single garage space.<br />

Of course, not all lifts work<br />

properly within that formula. You<br />

need to purchase one that has<br />

adjustable lock rails, plus needs<br />

only one inch of raise to unlock.<br />

My best advice if you’re thinking<br />

of getting a lift for your garage?<br />

Stop by and see one in operation<br />

and take as many measurements<br />

as you can to see how things will<br />

fit in your garage. Like most<br />

recommendations, our members<br />

will have all manners of favorites. I<br />

have Greg and Julia Cleath to thank<br />

for letting me spend time with their<br />

lift, even though they have a much<br />

higher garage height and depth<br />

than I do.<br />

The key to me in addition to a<br />

high quality lift is the installer. Mine<br />

spent the necessary time with me to<br />

park and re-park the Porsches in<br />

both “bunks” and then dialed in<br />

my adjustable locks perfectly.<br />

With a little studying and<br />

planning, that’s how I made 1 +1 =<br />

3 in our limited garage space.<br />

Help Wanted: Introducing the DE Work/Drive Program<br />

By Wayne Elliott, Region Safety Co-Chair<br />

photos by Bill Orr<br />

Have you ever wanted to find out what it feels like to<br />

drive on a race track, but were unwilling to shell out the<br />

$300+ to attend one of the clubs’ Drivers’ Education<br />

events? Well, here’s an opportunity to do it for free!<br />

Part of what the club provides in return for your<br />

entry fee are the people who keep you safe on the track<br />

and keep everything running smoothly throughout the<br />

day. We need a larger pool of workers, so we’ve begun<br />

a work/drive program that benefits everyone. Work one<br />

weekend and you get a credit to drive a weekend in<br />

the future. You’ll be paired with an experienced safety<br />

worker, and get to watch the cars at speed from a<br />

vantage point like no other.<br />

If you’ve ever participated in DE events in the<br />

past, this will give you a greater appreciation<br />

for what those guys and gals in the white suits<br />

do at the corners. You’ll never again miss or ignore<br />

a flag, or have to try to remember what exactly that<br />

flag color means. If you haven’t participated in DEs,<br />

this program will give you a great introduction into the<br />

sport, and maybe even turn you into a “track rat.”<br />

Lastly, if you don’t develop an interest in driving,<br />

you can continue to work future events and get paid<br />

$100 or more per day for your time.<br />

For more information, please contact Wayne Elliott at<br />

Maverick Moments: This month in Maverick History<br />

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor<br />

images courtesy University of North Texas Libraries<br />

Before I began laying out my first issue of<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong>, I thought it might be a good idea to<br />

look back. Any club with cars and 55 years of<br />

history must have some pretty good memories. I’ve<br />

found that to be an understatement.<br />

Looking through the back issues of <strong>Slipstream</strong><br />

I have come across some great articles, wonderful<br />

photos and art, but most of all I have found stories<br />

of lasting friendship and a passion for Porsche<br />

throughout the years .<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> through the years: 1977, 1978, 1984, 1987<br />

Beautiful artwork<br />

from 1975<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong>, <strong>April</strong> 1964<br />

In the coming year, I will occasionally dip into<br />

the <strong>Slipstream</strong> past and share some tidbits that<br />

spark my interest. I hope they do they same for you.<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

– excerpt of Jan Mayo’s Profile of Pat Hildreth, 1987<br />

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor<br />

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor<br />

Hello, my name is Kurt Scaggs. I am your newest<br />

editor of <strong>Slipstream</strong>. You might have noticed some<br />

changes in the newsletter this month. I can assure<br />

you, it’s a new look, but the same great taste.<br />

Jim has told me who the trouble makers are, so you can<br />

put your pens down. Actually that’s not the case at all.<br />

Jim has had nothing but great things to say about being<br />

editor and has been amazing getting me up to speed.<br />

I hope you like the changes, but if you see something<br />

that can be improved upon I am only a click or two away.<br />

Outside of <strong>Slipstream</strong> I am a creative director in the<br />

retail packaging business. That’s a fancy way of saying<br />

that I’m a designer. That might go a long way towards<br />

explaining my inability to leave well enough alone.<br />

I would like to join the many, many members who<br />

have thanked Jim for his tireless efforts to create this<br />

publication every month. The countless contributions<br />

he’s made to the club have made a lasting impact. His<br />

passion has made <strong>Slipstream</strong> what it is today and with<br />

his help, we will continue on that path.<br />

On the subject of past editors, and I’d like to recognize<br />

that past editors like Fran Ussery, Julia Underwood,<br />

Carey Spreen and Wendy Shoffit (I’m missing many, so<br />

please pardon my brevity) are pretty big acts to follow.<br />

These names should be familiar to everyone that enjoys<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong> as they are regular contributors to the club.<br />

I could go on about the efforts and contributions of<br />

so many that you see on these pages and many more<br />

that you don’t. They make this club run, well, like a<br />

Porsche. If you would like to be a part of the great team<br />

that makes the club run, join us at the next board<br />

meeting at Hackberry Country Club. Enjoy the Drive!<br />

Congratulations to<br />

the Maverick Region’s<br />

newest power couple,<br />

Bill and Debi Kruder.<br />
