SPROCKETS: Something Old and Something New
By David Robertson, Region President
It dawned on me last month that the Maverick
Region has something going on just about every week.
In fact, I am pretty sure things never really slowed
down last winter. Now that we are well into spring, our
members have a choice of multiple club events almost
every week. There is something for everyone, and if you
haven’t been out to see us, now is the time!
Not all Porsches are 2-door sports cars, and
Maverick is one of the first PCA regions in the
country to organize driving events specifically
for 4-door models. Did you know that
approximately 80% of all new Porsche sales
have four doors?
Although still in the early stages, we have had both
an off-road event for SUVs, and have dedicated DE time
for all 4-door Porsches. Expect to see more options for
4-door owners in the future. By the way, we welcome
your suggestions and feedback on ways we can better
serve our members. I know there are many of you out
there with 4-door models, and we would love to hear
from you. A big thank you to Carey Spreen and Jeff
Sebert for all of their work in getting this program off
the ground. Porsche Panameras, Cayennes, and Macans
are always welcome at all of our events, and I encourage
you to come out in one of these models!
One of our newest programs is being developed
around 4-door Porsches but we have also focused on
restarting a couple of programs that are a big part of
Maverick history. Our Tech Session program is bigger
and more popular than ever. In fact, when these sessions
are announced, you need to RSVP quickly to get a spot.
Due to the sometimes limited space in the venues where
the tech sessions are held, the number of attendees has
to be capped. Don’t hesitate or you might miss out! Our
new Tech Session program has had events that focus
on all aspects of owning a Porsche. Tech Session Chair
Michael Baynton has done an amazing job of making
this one of our most popular events in a very short
period of time.
Another area that is a core to the colorful history
and traditions of the Maverick Region is our Concours
program. If you haven’t noticed lately, it is kind of a
big deal again. Our new Concours program includes
events for everyone wanting to show off their Porsches,
ranging from casual events to more formal and
competitive formats. Everyone is excited about this
newly re-energized program, and I for one can’t wait
to see what Concours Chair Mike Mahoney has in
store for us!
SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor

Grapevine, TX 76051
It is going to be a great May and I look forward to
seeing you on the road!
MAV OF THE MONTH: Mike Mahoney
There have been several times in my career when I
have chosen someone for a position based on enthusiasm
vs experience, and appointing Mike Mahoney to
has been a brilliant
decision from the
start. Mike had a
smile, a pitch, and
a plan that made it
hard to refuse.
What he initially
lacked in Concours
quickly gained by
local Maverick Region legends as Alan Bambina and Ed
Mayo to train and consult himself and other volunteers
on the finer points of conducting world-class Concours
events. Mike’s first big event as Concours Chair was the
Concours d’Elegance at Brookhaven Country Club
back in March, which exceeded by far all expectations.
The Maverick Concours program is back and better
than ever. Thank you, Mike, for everything that you do
for our club.

Motoring Mavs at Mayo: A New Tradition
By William Middleton
photos by author and Landon Stogner
To start with, I’ve been a somewhat regular at Ed
Mayo’s shop for a number of years – when I purchased
my Porsche way back
now 18 years ago, they
became my “go-to”
mechanics – and have
remained so ever since.
As such, I’ve been to
frequent events at the
shop, especially the
annual May at Mayo’s,
which has always been
a winner of an event;
great food, wonderful
people, and more
auto eye candy than
some of the
should be legal all in
one place at one time.
So – when this new
event popped up on the calendar, I knew I wanted to
attend. I’d heard of the somewhat official get-togethers
that occurred at the shop on certain Saturdays, mainly
just several guys getting together for coffee, sweets, and
shop talk, so I thought this would be much in the same
vein – maybe a few more folks, but a small, friendly get
together to look at cars and chat about – well, cars.
HOLY CRAP was I surprised!! Turning off the main
road into Baccarac Court, the short street that goes
down to Ed’s shop, I was greeted with a veritable tidal
wave of Porsches. They were parked on both sides, in
the grass, on the dirt, in every parking lot in the vicinity,
and there were others too cruising the street looking
to land somewhere. It was like someone had beaten
on a hive of Porsches somewhere and they all flew out
I managed to park, then got about what I came
for – getting photos – and WHAT an opportunity for
photos!! Everywhere I looked, there was something to
shoot that was beyond spectacular. I was just glad that
I’d brought an extra battery and stuck in the 64 GB
high speed memory card. I’d need them both!
The main event of the morning was a great
presentation by Ed Mayo, Alan Bambina, and others
from the Concours team, about Concours preparation.
It was hands-on, using one of the cars for demonstration
of judging items, pointing out what’s looked at when,
including some tips on getting things prepared to the
“next level,” and a really good discussion of car prep.
While that was going on, there were small side groups
discussing various things mechanical, looking at some
of the cars in the garage, and discussing this item or that
repair with Tom Petrushka and others from the Mayo
As I wandered about, seeing and greeting old friends
and chatting between pictures, I realized again how
much this is about people, and not just the cars. The
cars are, really, nothing more than a catalyst that brings
all of us together. I was also taken by the fact that
everyone was actually engaging in genuine face-to-face
conversations with each other. All too often I see people
so busy texting or emailing, they easily spend an entire
day without one meaningful conversation. All around
me, conversation, laughter, human interaction, if for
nothing else, our events are special because they get us
out of our daily grind and actually enjoying the company
of others in meaningful ways.
Autocross School and Event 2: MirrorCross
By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
photos by LightSpeed Images
The Autocross School at Mineral Wells Airport on
March 17 was sold out with a waiting list. Participants
got one-on-one instruction on four skill-focused sections:
double skidpads connected by a figure 8; a slalom; a
mini autocross course; and a special staggered highspeed
offset-gate section. After lunch, students were able
to run activities until they wore themselves out, which
Sunday was Series Event 2 – MirrorCross. This
consisted of two mirror-image courses set up for dragstrip-style
The starts consisted of staging lights and a
drag-style “Christmas tree” which counted
down from yellow to green. Reaction times
at the start were important, with a perfect
light taking a 0.50-second reaction time.
Anything less was a “red light,” which disqualified the run.

The system also recorded 60-foot times that
demonstrated who could not only get going at the right
time, but make the most of the start. Of course, lap times
were also recorded. After each run, drivers traded sides
and repeated the procedure. Each driver got six nearly
back-to-back passes early in the run group, then six more
later on in their run group. Best time on the left side was
added to best time on the right side to determine class
and overall winners. With 88 entries, a side-by-side drag
race start took place an average of every 20 seconds. It
was a fast-paced event and a lot of fun.
We got to see our first Voodoo Blue Cayman 718-S
PDK, driven by Chris Craig, run at this event. Wow!
Fastest Porsche of the day, and stunning to watch. It
looks like the new Porsches are becoming the fastest
Porsches at autocross now also. Chris won a trophy,
Chris Craig Cayman 718-S
Top Porsche payout (yes, Equipe Rapide pays cash!),
and also an overall top 20 performance index (PAX)
payout. We collected his money and trophy to hold for
him at the next event.
Owen Coulman, a transfer to Maverick Region from
San Diego, brought out his beautiful red 996 GT3 and
was really flying. He was topping second gear twice on
the first half of the course. He finished second quickest
Porsche for that payout at this event.
Fran Ussery brought her yellow Boxster to challenge
Carolle Liu in class P1. Carolle attended the AX School
so we saw some significant improvements from her.
Class P4 was the largest Porsche class again, with
three 914 2.0 and two 924S drivers. It was very close
to see which 914 could cut the best reaction time at the
start light, but then Ed Mayo was doing the best 60-
foot times, followed by Sigrid and Mark Schnoerr. Best
60-foot times were 2.201, 2.219 and 2.261 seconds, a
spread of just six hundredths of a second. (Must have
something to do with driver weight!) Those short first
gears really helped us at the start!
Mark was third quickest Porsche and first in P4,
for that payout, just 0.4 seconds behind the GT3 on a
combined 90-second course! (We pedal those little old
cars really hard in the tight sections.) Ed and Sigrid were
really close, each quicker on one side, but Ed’s left-side
times were enough quicker to hold on to second in class
P4. Sigrid was overall event fourth quickest Ladies’
Performance Index for that payout at this event. Carey
and Sue were wrestling to get the most out of the 924S
but drag race starts are really not a staple for those cars.
Next event: Sunday, May 20, at Mineral Wells Airpark.

Hill Country Rallye: Kerrville 2018
By Paul Mosley
photos by Paul Moseley
The Hill Country Rallye might be the best Porsche
event you’ve never heard of. The way things are going,
though, it won’t be that way for long. This year’s
Rallye sold out in less than an hour. The host hotel
in Kerrville was completely booked. Porsches came
from New Jersey, California (including the well-known
AutoKennel 911, complete with loaded roof rack),
Mexico, and Wisconsin. Kevin Devlin realized he had
a weekend off, so he booked a flight to DFW to pick
up his 911 stored at Zims Autotechnik. Kevin lives in
-- wait for it -- Australia!
They know the Texas Hill Country like the backs of
their hands and it shows.
A lifelong Texan, I had little knowledge of the Hill
Country except that it is there. What got my attention
on the HCR route map was the Twisted Sisters routes,
hundreds of miles of roads kinda sorta west of Kerrville,
where the Rallye is based. The name fits. Looking at
the map, I’m reminded of a cliché bicycle road racing
phrase announcers might have used way back when:
“The riders rode on roads that resembled a fallen ball
Take about 160 pre-1989 air-cooled Porsches (sorry
post-1989 owners, you’re outta luck), maybe 175
people, and hundreds of miles of the best driving roads
in the country, and you get three days of absolute fun.
Begun along with our very own Ed Mayo in 2001
as a way for Porsche owners to get together and do
what our cars do best, the HCR is now the passion of
a group of loyalists based mostly in and around Austin
who have honed this event into a well-run getaway.
Upon check-in you receive a route book and a route
map, a double-sided thing of beauty, and note this: you
save the map, because during the year, you’ll want to go
back and retrace your routes. Then you pick your drives
-- four offered each day -- that you’ll go on.
Friday night pizza and beer is served up in the
Porsche-only parking lot, the center of the social
scene all weekend. Lean against the Martini-liveried
transporter belonging to RS Werks from Delaware, at
the HCR supporting client and Tejas Treffpunkt founder
Michael Meldrum. Closing time is – well -- there isn’t
one. Hello midnight!
Drive days are where it gets fun, because you
won’t go out for an hour, or even two; maybe
four, but more likely six.
You’ll see gorgeous two-lane Hill Country passes
with rock walls on one side, valleys on the other, tight
twisties, ok, very tight. And quick. Very few stop
signs and stop lights. Few towns and zero cell service.
You’re way out there. And cows. We have cows, and
sheep, because the public roads do run through private
ranch property. Keep your eyes open and your tank full.
If you are feeling frisky and fast, here is an example
of one Friday route choice. Red: Spirited (Hah!
Understatement of the year). A 391-mile “Long as
Hell” route where you are urged to bring walkie-talkies
and swim trunks. Yes, swim trunks. Because at the
end you’ll be pretty drained and there is a swimming
hole. If you forget your trunks, don’t be shy. Get it?
The next three groups offered 254-, 212- and 177-mile
options, so there is something for all drivers and all cars
to choose from. Photo breaks and lunch stops give you
a chance to make friends along the way and look at
how filthy dirty your Porsche has become. You could
wash it for the Friday night car show takeover in tiny
downtown Comfort, Texas, or what the heck, leave it
dirty. I did. Cool, double cool.
The closing Saturday night banquet is loud, funny,
a chance to recognize those who worked hard for a
solid year, plenty of Porsche raffle items. Then there’s
Al Zim’s annual T-shirt toss: yell, jump, earn that shirt!
You’ll seriously regret the end, and you’ll act quickly
when 2019 registration opens!
Kruder’s Cars & Conversation
By Bill Kruder
photos courtesy of Bob Molyneux
This month’s “conversation”
is another one that took me by
surprise. I was at the new Motoring
Mavs @ Mayo last month, and
this gentleman walked up to
me and said hello. We did the
usual introductions, and to
my amazement, I have seen
his name on every issue of
Slipstream since joining in
1996, and finally, 22 years
later, I can put a face to a name.
So here is the next in my series
of “conversations” I would like to
share with you.
Hiram and Emily Saunders,
member since 1973,
Owner 2009 Boxster S
Bill Kruder: So are you originally
Hiram Saunders: No, we moved here
in 1979 from St. Louis.
Emily Saunders: We are both
originally from North Florida, the
small town of Live Oak, which is
about half way between Tallahassee
BK: And what brought you here?
HS: Well, as with all our moves, it
was about a job. We started out in
Seattle right out of college, then on
We went to the same high school and
kind of knew whom one another was
but we never dated; we hung out in
different circles you would say.
to St. Louis, then here -- originally
Fort Worth and then Southlake,
where we are today.
BK: And where did you go to
HS: I went to Georgia Tech to
become an engineer, which led us to
Seattle, working for Boeing.
ES: What Hiram
isn’t telling you
is that he finished
high school in
just three years.
BK: Wow! And
where did you
HS: We went to
the same high
school and kind
of knew of each
other, but we
we hung out in
you might say.
BK: So how did
you finally begin dating?
HS: Well, I had gone off to Georgia
Tech and came home that first
ES: He had left and came back that
summer. My cousin was having a
birthday party, and he and a couple
friends just “crashed” it.
HS: We did! I saw Emily there, and
worked up the courage to ask her out.
ES: Then right after he graduated
from GT, we got married; that was
BK: Tell me about your interest
HS: I have always had this love
of sports cars, particularly open
roadsters, but my parents were
against it, as they thought they
were too dangerous, so my
sports car ownership was put on hold.
ES: I worked at a Buick dealer when
Hiram graduated, so we bought a
1965 Le Sabre Sport coupe. Not
exactly what he loved, but it was a
very nice car.
HS: We drove out to Seattle when I
started with Boeing, and traded it
for a 1965 MGB. We joined a club
and drove it everywhere.
BK: So what was your first Porsche?
HS: We were in St Louis by 1973,
and the car was a 1970 Irish Green
Targa. We had seen it on the lot
for (I think) six months before
we bought. As I recall, it had a
bad transmission, along with a
few other issues, but I was able
to always rebuild or fix what was
BK: I understand you were pretty
involved in the St Louis Region?
HS: We were always active
participants at the many events, and
I eventually became club President.
Then our newsletter Editor left and
couldn’t find anyone, so I took the
job. Well, maybe I should say WE
took the job (laughing).
ES: That Editor job was a chore
back then, it really was a cut-andpaste,
then make copies, fold them,
staple them, sort them, and mail
HS: Truthfully my name might have
been on the masthead but Emily did
more of the work.
BK: Now what about some of the
other Porsches you guys have had?
HS: Well after the Targa, about
1982 we bought a 1974 914 2.0
in Olympic Blue; that was my
daily driver with 100K miles on it.
Also, about this same time, a coworker
had a 356 project car we
bought, along with boxes of parts.
Then in 1988 we bought a pristine
black 1973 914 1.8. That car was
BK: And what became of them?
HS: Well I retired in 2001 and I
thought I might work on the 356 as
a long-term project.
ES: I really wasn’t too keen on the
“project” as I was afraid that’s all
he would do, so I convinced him to
sell it and buy something newer.
BK: What did you guys do then?
HS: We bought a red 1995 911
(993) cabriolet and kept it for the
next 11-12 years. We drove that car
BK: What do you guys have today?
HS: In 2016 we bought a Midnight
Blue Metallic 2009 Boxster S with
the PDK transmission. For us,
“sports car” has always meant an
BK: Ok, so now tell me how and
why has your name appeared on
the back of Slipstream since 1980?
HS: We became part of the Maverick
Region in 1979. In 1980 the club
was looking for an Editor, and since
I had done that in St. Louis, I said I
1995 993 Cabriolet near Durango, CO
would do it. Back then, Slipstream
was a very simple newsletter. We
turned it into a more substantial
magazine. However, in doing that,
we had to move from first class mail
to second class to get the mailing
costs reduced. The caveat was that
you had to have a return address
on the back cover in order to do
that, and as Editor I used ours. So
to this day, Slipstream is registered
in Fort Worth. Hence my name still
appears 38 years later.
Well, as usual, I always walk
away surprised at what chances life
brings us in meeting people when
we just stop or are stopped to say
hello. As Hiram and Emily told me
several times during our chat: it
really is about the people. It doesn’t
matter if you are an attendee or
a chairperson; it’s the people.
Today we call that Driving
Maverick Tour Recap: Wine M Up, Blow M Out!
By Olga Taylor
photos by Susan Tierny and author
A huge shout-out and thanks
to the Tour Volunteers—y’all are
awesome! With 93 drivers, 157
adults, and six minors, it took a lot
of coordination and patience to keep
us on track. To the first-timers, all
49 of y’all, I send a warm welcome
to the world of PCA Touring.
The logistics and organization
were terrific. First, smiling
volunteers took care of registration.
Then, every driver was placed into
a group, assigned a group leader,
and awaited instructions. With
so many cars, I appreciated the
staggered departure times. Group
1, led by Derrick Tate, appeared to
be populated with some fast P-cars
-- at least that was my perception. I
noticed the same for each group led
by Group Leaders Tom Martin, John
Harvey, Young Slack, Karl Poulsen,
Mike Ferrell, Brant Worrell, Tom
Gomer, and Mark Pitarresi. Then,
at last, Edward Martelle called out
our group, the Vintage Group.
The route was simply a fun, safe
drive -- mostly smooth roads, spring
greenery, and some excellent curves.
Over the course of about two hours,
residents of Rockwall, Lavon,
Josephine, Farmersville, Merit, Blue
Ridge, and New Hope were treated
to a spectacular rolling parade.
Newcomers and experienced
drivers know that Tours are a
wonderful way to commune with
our cars, P-car comrades, and the
outdoors. For me, this tour was
nostalgic; it’s been 30 years since
our (Baby’s and my) last PCA Tour.
So, here’s a point of view from a
driver in the Vintage group.
Once upon a time in a galaxy
far, far away, the 911SC was
almost brand new. Although not as
powerful as the 930s or the 3.2-liter
Carreras, her 3.0-liter engine held
court in the more spirited PCA tour
groups. Though everyone admired
the grace of the vintage 356s, we all
knew they would struggle to keep
up with us as we whizzed through
the Oregon Cascade Mountains.
Fast forward to 2018, when
Derrick described how driving skill
and style come together on Mav
Tours. I was enthralled and shared my
love for touring. Then, I recognized
his admiration for the styling of my
911SC, and his simultaneous fear
that Baby might not be able to keep
up. This was my reality check. It
was time to yield to the newer and
more powerful models. No longer
in denial, I resigned myself to life
without PCA tours.
All that ended on March 25,
2018. Tom Gomer and Mark
Pitarresi heard my silent scream
for help, answered with a Vintage
group for the tour. As I approached
the meeting place, three magnificent
vehicles appeared next to me in a
flash: a Boxster, a Cayman, and --
wait for it -- a white 911 Turbo S!
Things got better. On arrival at
Mitas Hill Vineyard, I was greeted
by a vast expanse of P-cars. I shared
a smile with owner of a maroonish
Cayman -- we’d flashed when
passing each other the previous day!
From a vintage perspective, I could
not have been happier. At 38 years
young, Baby was the most vintage of
the Vintage group. But thankfully,
Ed Martelle and his Sable 1987 944
didn’t leave us behind.
Patriot PAWS was also at the
Vineyard. They collected $416 in
donations from the tour
participants. We had a blast. I’ve
already registered for the next tour
and advise you to do the same.

Maverick Inaugural Porsche Promenade
By Mike Mahoney, Region Concours Chair
photos courtesy of author
On an overcast yet very comfortable spring Sunday,
March 25, the Maverick Region held our inaugural
Porsche Promenade Concours event at Brookhaven
Country Club in Farmers Branch. With almost all of
the region’s early long-hood 911s in the Texas Hill
Country, and many other Mavericks enjoying a nice
driving tour, we managed to have some 50 cars and
meticulous owners in this top-down show and shine
event. Some 100 guests enjoyed all of the beautifully
cared for Porsches, food, and refreshments.
In addition, a big thank you to our Porsche
Promenade exclusive sponsor Porsche Plano for making
this entire event possible, as well as providing a 2018
Panamera for everyone to enjoy. Breakfast tacos and
mimosas were just a sampling of the brunch and
libations served on this car show Sunday. Thanks to all
of the Maverick volunteers who assisted with parking,
judging and registering. The event ended with all of the
winners being recognized and celebrated at an awards
presentation in the Brookhaven Country Club
conference facility. Our next concours event, a People’s
Choice car show, will be held on Sunday, June 24 at the
Lakeside Market parking lot in front of Weirs. Look for
information on Facebook and via email.

March Tech Session: Alignment & Suspension
By Landon Stogner
photos courtesy of author
So you’re thinking about trying
a DE at a local track, or the back
roads for a PCA Tour, or maybe
just the daily drive up and down
the Dallas Tollway. Either way, no
matter how you drive you Porsche,
there are simple improvements to
its handling that can be made.
On a nice spring Saturday
morning in March we had not one,
but two insightful tech sessions
about alignment and suspension,
hosted by Charlie Lacy and team
at Innovative Autosports. We had
such a high demand for this topic of
“garage talk” that it was broken up
into two sessions, each covering the
same topics with different attendees.
The first started at 9 am and second
kicked off at 11:30 am. As with any
other early-morning Porsche event,
we had a wide variety of donuts and
coffee. For the second group the
buffet got larger with sandwiches,
wraps, pizza, and sweet treats.
If the hospitality wasn’t already
great, the education we received
once stepping into the garage took
it over the top. Charlie was all set
with his demonstrations by having
two Spec Boxsters set up to explain
how the shop performs precise
four-wheel alignments. One setup
showed how they could tweak the
alignment at the track by creating a
“square” around the car with some
good ol’ fashioned fishing line and
portable scales. The other example
was more high-tech, with lasers
and computers to dial in the needed
measurements on a sophisticated
There was also
on different types of
shocks and springs you
can put on your car
and the improvements
they can provide.
Charlie explained the
toe-in and toe-out, and
positive and negative
camber. These are
the types of changes
that can be made to
get the most grip and
your tires when making the turns
around the track. Charlie was
happy to tackle any subject
that was thrown at him,
such as strut tower braces,
vented vs. drilled brake
rotors, brake ducting, and
more. Charlie’s many years
of experience with Porsches
and his time with two local Porsche
dealerships made it impossible to
stump him with a question. And his
“track record” as an accomplished
racer added an additional point of
view and level of expertise to the
To give an example, when making
adjustments to the alignment, they
account for all types of details that
I would not have thought of when
getting the car just right, such as the
total weight of the car, the weight
of the driver, and how the driver’s
seat is off-center in the car. So if you
are a weekend warrior on the track
with your Porsche, just remember:
staying away from that extra donut
is not only good for you, but good
for your car’s suspension as well.
Charlie added that even after
your Porsche leaves Germany, there
is still so much hidden potential in
the car (or SUV).
So whether you’re off to Mavs
& Mochas, or cruising the twisty
roads looking for bluebonnets,
Doing something as simple as
optimizing your 4-wheel alignment
will leave you feeling like you’re
driving a new car.
there’s an alignment/suspension setup
for you. I encourage anyone with
general questions – or particular
concerns about your car – to give
Charlie Lacy and the team at
Innovative Autosports a call. Just
another way of Driving Friendships.

Easter Rally Recap: Maverick Bunny Hop
By Mike Barnett
photos by George Luxbacher & Bill Orr
When I saw the email for this year’s Bunny Hop Rally,
I thought, wow, this could be fun! I have organized
many simple rally/poker runs for my Ford club but
were really clear and easy to follow.
When we made it to the last check point, we agreed
that we were both hungry, and eagerly anticipated lunch
at Hard 8. We shared a table with a
nice couple from Ft Worth. It was fun
When we started the rally, Laurie
and I agreed that our goal was to just
finish and not get lost. As George was
going over the answers, we thought,
“Wow, we did pretty well after all.”
Then he announced that two teams
tied for 4th, then announced 3rd place
and then 2nd. Laurie said, “I guess
we didn’t do so well after all.” Then
George announced the winning team
have never run a rally that was put together by someone
who actually knows how to do it. I asked Laurie if she
wanted to navigate and she said sure, so we signed up.
The Friday storms just missed us to the north, so
we were good for Saturday morning. What a miserable
day! Cold, misty and a strong north wind awaited the
roughly 50 hardy souls who came. Most everyone just
stayed in their cars with engines running to await the
When the time came to start, Don and George
ran what had to be the shortest meeting ever,
and we were off. We were glad that Porsches
come with great heaters and seat warmers.
What was amazing to me was that the tire pressure
monitoring system said the tire pressure actually
dropped as we drove. The tires were cooling off, rather
than warming up.
Laurie and I quickly found that we were going to
be busy looking for the many pictured locations that
we were supposed to find and to answer the questions
along the route. The biggest challenge for both of us
was to keep our eyes moving, looking for clues.
Our Rallymasters found some interesting roads we
had not seen before. Fortunately, the route instructions
was Mike and Laurie. I looked around to see who they
were, until it dawned on me that it was us. What a
surprise! Kudos to Laurie, who, as navigator, figured
out most of the answers. I helped as much as driving
and staying on the road allowed.
It was a lot of work to put together a Rally as well
organized as that one was. Hats off to the Rallymasters,
Don and George. If you have not had the opportunity
to run a Maverick Region Rally, you are missing out on
a neat challenge and a lot of fun!

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
It occurred to me this past month, after switching
from my fun car to my everyday car, that I have become
comfortable driving an automatic. I know, it sounds
crazy. It wasn’t long ago that the mere mention of such a
thing would have sent me into a long monologue about
driving for enjoyment and the appliance driving drones
on the road around us. Just think of what we’re leaving
to our kids. Ooops. This story that I’d been telling
myself was quickly falling apart. I’d much rather be
driving a manual but having a computer pick up some
of the work in the everyday morning school drop-off
line actually had its place. Sometimes. Right?
Fast forward to the evening of March 15th. My wife
and I went to the Winspear to hear Steve Wozniak talk
about founding Apple with Steve Jobs and all things
geek. The last place you’d think a car story would start.
Steve was explaining something I think many of us can
relate to. He longed for a Tesla, but he did not have
complete spousal approval. So he continued to dream
until one day, one of the long line of “good reasons”
he had been proselytizing finally landed home. His wife
told him to buy one. He wasted no time and quickly did
just that. Sound familiar? He was hooked by the idea of
calling his car from the restaurant and having it meet
him and drive him home. Setting cruise control in San
Francisco and waking up in New York. The ultimate
automatic. Great geek stuff. After a few months of
ownership he remarked, “It’s definitely Artificial but not
very Intelligent. I trust the A much more than the I.” He
sold his Tesla and freely admits that he doesn’t think
autonomous driving will happen in our lifetime. And he
really wants it to. I’m overjoyed. I’m sure there are so
many good reasons for flying around like the Jetsons.
But think of how hard it would be to find a break in
traffic to squirt through with all of the computer driven
vehicles packed 5 feet apart on the freeway. With new
stories everyday about another car company trying to
make it’s own self-driving car it seems inevitable. But
according to Steve, it ain’t going to happen. And Porsche
hasn’t given up on the stick just yet. So there’s that.
As a member of the Manual Transmission Preservation
Society, I will rest easy with the belief that we’ll live to
shift another day. (In a car with a steering wheel.) With
any luck, our children and grandchildren will be able to
do the same. Enjoy the Drive!
