SPROCKETS: No Summer Slowdown

By David Robertson, Region President

There is no doubt that summer has arrived. With

temps in the triple digits, you may be tempted to

hunker down in the cool confines of your home.

Don’t be tempted -- get out and take a drive!

Have you seen those videos of Porsche testing

new models out in Death Valley? They don’t

seem to be affected and North Texas is like a Fall

weather in comparison

You may think that club events slow down in these

summer months, but in July there is something going on

every week. In fact, I will be driving up to the Porsche

Parade this month to do much more driving, where I

will I arrive with hundreds of other PCA members from

all over North America. This year’s Parade is relatively

close to home in Missouri, so we can drive up in our

911 without facing the “shame” of attending in a rental

car as we did last year. Shipping is not really an option

with my daily driver, and we just didn’t have the time

to drive to Spokane last year, although most people did

and tell me that the journey to Spokane was as much

fun as Parade itself. I must say that there is a bit of

an element missing when you attend Porsche Parade

without a Porsche! I will let you know how it all goes

next month, but I am 100% sure that Parade is going

to be a lot of fun, and we may have a record attendance

of Maverick Region members this year!

Along with Parade this month there are a couple

of lunches, a Mavs and Mochas featuring the

Porsche Cayenne, an Autocross, a happy hour and

dinner, Motoring Mavs at Mayos, and a Tech Session

about tires. If there is a rare weekend when an event is

not planned, there is always an impromptu get-together

organized by someone through one of our social

media pages.

The Maverick board members are always mindful

of overlapping events or scheduling at certain times.

However, sometimes due to availability of venues, or

more likely, just not having enough days in the month,

scheduling conflicts arise. We do everything possible

to accommodate everyone, but if someday you have to

choose between two events that you want to attend,

just know that our amazing board members are

always coming up with additional options and ways to

accommodate all of our members. Our events are some

of the best-attended of any region in the country, and in

my opinion, having more choices is better than having

fewer choices!

MAV OF THE MONTH: Landon Stogner

Landon Stogner recently celebrated his two-year

anniversary with PCA in June. After purchasing his

2010 Porsche 911 Cabriolet, he not only began

attending many Maverick events, but quickly stepped

up to volunteer

with a wide range

of club tasks,

such as parking

members for social

events and sharing

photos and articles

for Slipstream.

You’ll often see

Landon and his

two sons, Corbin

and Brady, working

as a team to

volunteer at events.

Most recently,

Landon has taken

on the task of

Volunteer Chair

for the Region and has some great ideas for engaging

club members. Thank you Landon, we look forward to

seeing what you have in store for us!

June Mavs&Mochas: A Really Good Box of Chocolates

By Olga Taylor

photos by Andrew Barber and Michael Durovick

Left: The author’s SC, Baby at the SC M&M event.

To paraphrase Forrest Gump,

every Mavs & Mochas is like a

box of really good chocolates.

In our case, you’ll never know

how many awesome P-cars

you’ll see.

Such was the case on June 9, 2018

at Mavs & Mochas celebrating the

40th anniversary of the 911SC. With

over 150 Porsches in attendance,

this “box of chocolates” was

incredibly good—it included a vast

array of years, models, colors, and

owners.

Bill Orr (thanks) exhibited his

charming doughnut-toting self and

super early set-up for early-bird

Mavs. So, how did it go? M & M

was better than great! Not only

were attendees delighted by lots

of beautiful Porsches, there were

throngs (yes, throngs) of Porsche

enthusiasts. Newcomers and

veterans bonded over solutions to

repair problems and frustration

over vexing recurring ones. A

beautiful sight.

There was lots of eye candy to

go around, and most of us simply

strolled around enjoying the P-car

ambience, which included a silver

Porsche reimagined by Singer!

Ogled by all, lots of us were simply

mesmerized, stuck in a good place.

This M & M served as a preparty

to the fabulous 70th

Anniversary celebration at Park

Place Porsche. It exceeded all

expectations and I thank my fellow

SC owners who showed up for our

40th Anniversary celebration. All in

all, Sportscar Together Day 2018

was legendary and a good time was

had by all.

Park Place Porsche: 70 years of Sportscar Together

photos by

By Landon Stogner

Bill Middleton, David Tierney & Zane Moore

They say you’re never alone when driving a Porsche, even

if you’re the only one in the car, because when you’re in a

Porsche you’re part of something bigger -- you’re part of

all of us.

June 8, 1948 was a special

day in Porsche history. That’s

the day the 356 Roadster

received its street certification,

which was the starting line to a

whole legacy of sports cars that

has now spanned 70 years.

To honor that great achievement,

Porsche hosted parties around the world, known as

Sportscar Together Day. Right here in our very own

backyard, we had several events around the Metroplex to

celebrate such a great accolade, one of which was held at

Park Place Porsche in Dallas. Our club’s great partnership

with the dealership allowed us to team up to host a Dallas

area Sportscar Together Day. Our

great club members and assembled a

great collection of cars to represent

the 70 years of Porsche, which

included the 356s of the 1950s and

1960s, as well as the 911s from the

late 1960s through today’s 2018

model. I was so honored to be asked

to represent the 2010 year model

with my 997 Cabriolet. It was such

a great sight to see how the cars have

changed through the decades. My very own PCA Junior,

Brady, noticed small differences in the side view mirrors

between the 60s and 70s. I told him to really soak it in

10 July


ecause it’s not every day you get to see a display

like this first hand.

If the great display of cars wasn’t enough,

Park Place provided festivities such as music

from a live band, great eats that included

bratwurst from Degenhardt’s Brat Haus, and

nitrogen-frozen ice cream to stay cool. To help

keep us all refreshed and comfortable throughout

the day there were different vendors providing

summertime adult beverages from Monkey

of your 70th

Celebration.

Shoulder Whiskey, Unlawful Brewery, and Reyka Vodka, as we sat

on outdoor patio-style sectional sofas. This event was so much fun

for Porsche fans of all ages. This was a great example how a sports

car can bring us together, and another way we are Driving Friendships.

Kruder’s Cars & Conversation

By Bill Kruder

photos courtesy of James St Peter

This month’s encounter took a

different twist than most, as I

had just met Alan Lage, who had

recently bought Michael Baynton’s

1974 911. It’s like the six degrees of

Kevin Bacon. Well, Alan suggested

that we have an “impromptu,”

which, for those of you who

haven’t heard, happen on random

Saturdays, which we post only on

our Mavs & Mochas

FB page. Of course, I

said! Why don’t you

pick the location and

I will post something.

Alan then begins to tell

me he knows this guy

who owns a cool donut

shop near White Rock

Lake. Well as they say,

the rest is history, as we

had the “impromptu”

there with about 20-

25 cars. I strike up the

usual conversation with

the donut entrepreneur,

asked about his car, what

he does and proceeds to

tell me he is . . . well, you

read on.

So here is the next in my

series of “conversations”

I would like to share

with you . . .

James St Peter, member since 2018,

Owner 1997 911 (993) Cab

Bill Kruder: So are you originally

from here?

James St Peter: Believe it or not I was

raised and born right here. I was

born in Richardson then we moved

to Plano. I graduated from Plano

Senior High School in 1991.

BK: And where did you go to college?

JSP: I went to Texas Tech and got a

degree in Marketing.

BK: So how did you meet your wife

Amy?

JSP: We met after college. I was out

with my friend Shane at Mic’s on

Greenville, and Shane’s sister and

her group of friends met us there.

It was totally random. I asked her

out a week or so later and we dated

for about five years before we got

married in 2003.

BK: I know you just recently joined

the club but I understand you were

a PCA member once before?

JSP: I was originally in the club about

ten years ago and dropped out; I

was entering the unknown world

of starting a business and time and

focus was going there. Then about

a month ago, I heard you guys

were having an “impromptu” at

Hypnotic Donuts near White Rock

Lake and decided to attend. As soon

as I was around all those Porsches

and people I realized how much I

had missed it. I re-joined as soon as

I got home.

BK: So how did you get interested in

Porsche?

JSP: Thinking back I am pretty

sure the 928 chase scene with Tom

Cruise in Risky Business got the

car in the back of my mind. Plus

the iconic James Dean and Little

Bastard poster and story added

some curiosity. From there I had

always noticed them and their

iconic silhouette on the

road. However, nothing

hooks you to a Porsche

like driving one and

that was my case. I was

driving around with my

friend Wade one day

and we saw a 911 sitting

outside Hi Line Motors.

We went in and I told

the salesman, “My boss

told me I can get any car

but he has to see it first.

Can I borrow this for

two hours?” He agreed

and we just cruised

around Dallas in a ‘95

911 Cabriolet for a few

hours. We returned and

I said, “Well this sucks,

he did not approve it,

sorry.” The salesman

knew we never had my

boss look at it and just

gave us a smile.

Fast forward ten years later: it was

pretty much because of my wife

Amy, then girlfriend, that sealed the

deal. Her dad, Carl Shore, owned

Central Porsche Audi in the 70s

up in Wichita, Kansas. He has a

beautiful red ‘88 Targa with a whale

tale that he keeps in the garage.

When we got married he loaned us

his ‘88 Cab for the wedding. Once I

was officially family, he let me (still

does) drive when we visit. I loved

driving that ‘88 Targa so much,

then hearing all the great stories,

12 July


good and bad, from Carl about

his experience with Porsches and

recalling how much fun Wade and I

had driving around that 993 Cab, I

finally pulled the trigger and bought

a 993 Cab for myself.

BK: So what was your first Porsche?

JSP: It’s the 1997 Cab; we bought it

about 12 years ago.

BK: So let’s get back to you and

Hypnotic Donuts?

JSP: Well I guess I was always the

kid or the guy that was restless and

doing odd jobs for money. After

spending 18 years in the corporate

world, we decided to try something

new and interesting. Well we looked

around and thought “there are

donut shops but they are all the

same.” We had heard about this

donut shop in Portland, Oregon

called Voodoo Donut, so we made

a trip to check it out. We liked the

whole vibe and eventually talked to

them about franchising, but they

did not want to do that. However,

I really felt this was something the

market wanted so I continued to

pursue it.

BK: So this was something you knew

about it?

JSP: Heck no (laughing)! I ate

donuts but that was all I knew

about the business. But my years

in corporate taught me a lot about

establishing and growing a business.

James and Amy driving off in dad’s 88

I concluded the restaurant industry

was basically run by two type of

people: chefs who do not know

how to run a business, and business

executives who do not know how to

produce good food. I had to figure

out how to meld the two.

BK: So . . .

JSP: I was still working my corporate

job so there was no hurry, but I

knew I wanted to do something,

so about two years later, 2010, we

started selling donuts.

BK: So Hypnotic Donuts is that old

already?

JSP: Technically yes; we became an

LLC and we started selling donuts

out of the back of a car on weekends

in 2010. We were selling out in five

minutes, so we knew we had to

take the next step. From there we

managed to convince a pizza place

to let us sell donuts on Saturdays

and Sundays till 10 am using their

storefront; mind you we had no

signs -- it was word of mouth. We

were having good success with

this but I was working five days in

corporate and then selling donuts

on the weekend. So it was seven

days a week without a break for

one and a half years. I knew we

could not sustain this style and had

to either be all in or all out on the

donut business.

BK: When did you open the store?

JSP: We were

selling our donuts

up around Preston

and Frankford

in Dallas and a

friend suggested

we look at a

storefront near

White Rock Lake,

so in 2012

walked into the

shop where we

are housed now

and asked if they

wanted out. They said yes. I was

stunned because now I had to act on

it. We took the plunge and opened

here on Garland Road (and realized

soon after we opened that we had

a lot more seven-day-a-week work

weeks ahead of us.)

BK: I have to tell you the first time

I had a Hypnotic Donut was up in

Denton.

JSP: Oh yes, we decided to expand,

looking for small places that shared

the same vibe of laid back people

that want to throw back to simpler

times, and we opened our second

location there about four years ago.

BK: Let’s talk about this “vibe”?

JSP: I like the whole mid-century

60s and 70s style, so we want

that feel in all of our stores, yet

each one noticeably different. Our

donut shops are the hippie-sittingin-the-basement

feel, while one

ice cream shop is a retro soda

fountain and the other is a bright

mid-century building.

BK: And as we speak we are sitting

in Hypnotic Emporium?

JSP: Yep, we decided that the other

thing that was missing was good

old fashion ice cream and candy. So

about two years ago we opened next

door to the donut shop in Dallas.

This May we opened another

Hypnotic Emporium in Mansfield.

And once again to think that after

a chance meeting with Alan, and

being friends with Michael, it would

lead to yet another great story.

Always remember: we are “driving

friendships.”

So if and when you meet someone,

new don’t miss out on “Driving

Friendships”!

Porsche Plano: 70th Anniversary Porsche Drive

By Mark Palmer

photo by Mike McGrath

On Saturday, June 9, 52

beautiful Porsche vehicles

lined up all the way

around the dealership for

our drive into northern

Collin County to celebrate

“Sportscar Together Day”

hosted by Porsche Plano. Our day started with breakfast

and a visit to the showroom and ended with a catered

lunch at Noah’s Event Venue in McKinney.

Following our drivers’ meeting, the Plano Police held

up traffic to get all the P-cars on the road (sorry Plano

residents) and we headed to the twisties. Given our very

large group, we did amazingly well at staying together.

Somewhere along the way a fellow P-car driver got a

ticket on 121 for speeding and a warning for no front

license plate -- image that! The driver will remain

anonymous.

Between Autobahn, Park Place, and Porsche Plano,

the dealers staged on a great day of celebrating Porsche’s

“70” year.

I want to thank Mike Marsh

and all the crew at Porsche

Plano for putting the client

drive together and for showing

us great hospitality!!

Here’s to the next 70 years.

Autobahn: 70th Celebration

By David Robertson, Region President

photos provided by

Carey Spreen, David Robertson & 360 West

Autobahn hosted their 70th celebration event away

from the dealership at Heart of the Ranch at Clearfork,

a great venue. The parking lot was full of Porsches

from all generations and before heading towards the

music emanating from the forest It was great to soak

in the view.

Of course, the theme of the celebration was all

about Porsche. A combination of old and new were

on display including one of the most beautiful 356’s I

have ever seen and our own Clay and Bettie Perrine’s

new (to them) 1970 914 6. There were early 911’s, to

the latest model 911 GT2 RS and a 918 thrown in for

good measure.

Our Past President

and Autobahn Porsche

Brand Ambassador,

John Hamilton, kicked

off the event introducing

GM Zoran Gutic who

appropriately started

his speech in German.

I am not sure what he

said but it sounded

like he knew what he

was talking about!

was bleak, so some turned around and went home. By

Maverick Tech Session Series: Engine Issues, Fact and Fiction

By Michael Baynton, Region Tech Session Chair

photos by Bill Orr

On Saturday, June 2, close to

60 Maverick members met at Zims

Autotechnik seeking answers to the

most serious of questions. Questions

about leaky engines, failed bearings,

dubious metallurgical decisions

of the ‘70s, and other worrisome

concerns that keep certain Porsche

owners up at night.

session would be as productive and

informative as possible, the crowd was

split into air-cooled and water-cooled

worriers. Al held court on one end

of the shop, and was soon peppered

with questions from the air-cooled

contingent regarding the invariable

oil leaks, soft mag cases, the dearth of

quality replacement parts, and what

As always, this event wouldn’t have

been the success it was without the

generous support of our host, the everincreasing

participation of our members,

and the tireless efforts of our volunteers,

who arrive early to help with set-up and

parking. Stay tuned and look out for

more exciting tech sessions during the

second half of 2018!

Fielding these questions with aplomb

and a wealth of experience was Al Zim,

one of the gurus of the P-car world.

On the morning of this 75th birthday,

no less, he graciously opened his shop

doors and—along with his experienced

staff of mechanics—provided advice

and perspective on a number of

engine-related issues. To ensure our

modern oils to use in ancient engines.

On the other end of his (immaculate,

by the way) facility, Jeremy lead the

discussion on water-cooled engines

and peripherals with the help of the

other shop mechanics. The Q&A of

course covered the infamous IMS and

RMS issues, along with several other

bugaboos of more modern Porsches.

It’s fair to say that no question

was left unanswered and that

our members received an

impressive education, along

with honest, sage, and often

humorous advice.

And both discussions were helped

immensely by having various Porsche

models up on lifts, allowing for closer

inspection and discussion. Our hosts

were more than gracious in allowing

members to inspect the shop and the

various work stations—even those that

were OTP (Other Than Porsche). Yes,

Zims also supports those other German

luxury brands.

knowledge to the group.

May Tour Recap: Aloha Maverick Style

By Mark Pitarresi, Tours Co-Chair

photos by author and Jim Hirsch

Our third tour of the year, “Aloha Maverick Style

- The Ray Roberts Lake Tour” was Saturday, May 19.

When I rolled into the parking lot of Grayson College in

Van Alstyne, there were already two cars eagerly waiting

to get their Maverick tour fix. Soon after getting set up,

the parking lot was full of friendly Porsche owners.

As usual, the beginning of our tours are pretty much

like our Mavs & Mochas events. Everyone catches up

with their friends, and meet new members while waiting

for departure. This tour was 90.4 miles and two hours

of drive time. We had 87 Porsches, 153 people, and 8

juniors (under age 18). After everyone was signed in,

we started the Drivers’ Briefing, explaining our rules

and how we would stage to leave.

At my group’s rest stop, I got a chance to meet Bill

Beck and look at his stunning blue 1967 912 Outlaw.

The engine was beautifully detailed and it had a

3-liter flat 6 out of a 911 SC, built to be a driver. I am

sure everyone one is looking forward to seeing more

of this car.

Our tour ended at the Hula Hut restaurant in Little

Elm. I wish we had a Hula Hut for every tour we do.

They really did not miss a beat. The food and service

were awesome! Wake Boarders at Hydros Wake Park

next door also put on a good show that could be seen

from Hula Hut.

Special Thanks to our tour volunteers! The Group

Leaders were Derrick Tate, Tom Martin, Young Slack,

Mark Palmer, Ted Martin, Mike Ferrell, Scott Garwood,

Karl Poulsen, and Edward Martelle. The sign in

attendants were Karl and Karen Poulsen, Ed Martelle,

and Jennifer Elliott.

After the briefing, we had everyone meet their group

leaders to answer questions. This tour is favorite to a

lot in the Dallas area because it’s easy to get to and has

great turns, long straights, and great country scenery.

The Vintage Group had 12 cars and the other groups

averaged 9. We went through the towns of Van Alstyne,

Weston, Celina, Pilot Point, Tioga, Sanger, Aubrey,

Krugerville, Cross Roads, Oakpoint and Little Elm.

The Porsche Plano Client Drive was also doing

a drive on FM 455. Our vintage group passed them

in downtown Celina going the opposite direction. I

imagine the residents enjoyed seeing over 100 Porsches

driving through the square! We had two rest stops on

this tour so our odd groups stopped at the second rest

stop while the even numbered groups stopped at the

first rest stop.

Schnell Fest at COTA: Spring 2018 HPDE By

By Jason White, Hill Country Region

photos by Andrew Barber

Schnell Fest is a blast and has consistently brought

a smile to my face, provided great experiences,

and provided me with great racing memories.

This was my third PCA DE at COTA, and at the

conclusion of each event I’m already planning and

thinking about returning to this magnificent track.

The smooth, fast turns, long straights, and

technical sections test your skills as a driver and

bring out the very best in your Porsche. Simply

an amazing experience.

The facility is first-rate, and we had easy access to the

garage spaces, beautiful air conditioned rooms, driver’s

lounge, and ample paddock space. We even had the

conveniences of an onsite tire service, as well as access to

retail performance parts and accessories.

I brought my family out to Schnell Fest. It’s a

comfortable space for them and a great way for them to

get a taste of my hobby, and even experience the track for

themselves during the charity parade laps.

It was a real treat to be able to park alongside strangers

and quickly make new friends as well as reconnect with

friends from past events. I loved talking with other

passionate enthusiasts (some traveling from other states),

hearing their personal stories and comparing lap times.

It was such a wonderful feeling of community and

camaraderie - everyone was so friendly and willing to help

and offer advice (especially to new drivers like myself).

Our morning driver safety meetings were informative

and efficient. Our session schedule was well-executed.

Driving attendees showed true sportsmanship on the track

yet were competitive and spirited. Trains were almost

nonexistent (which was a relief) allowing for a consistent

pace for me to grow and improve my driving. In addition

the instructed class time made for a terrific value.

Three months ago when I was attending my first DE,

I was initially concerned because I didn’t know if I was

ready for an unrestricted track pace. But after proper

instruction and actively listening to my instructors, I was

soon able to begin testing the limits of my car and driving

it how it was intended to be driven. It felt awesome to get

these results!

Our PCA instructors are really special. They constantly

strive to improve your driving skills while emphasizing

safety. Dedicated corner workers help keep us safe. The

run groups move along like a fine Swiss watch, thanks to

the team of people working behind the scenes - it’s a real

production.

This past Schnell Fest was a scorcher, with temperatures

pushing the mercury above 100 degrees, but thanks to

our organizers, we were well-hydrated with endless ice

cold water and tasty popsicles that they provided. My car

didn’t seem to notice a difference - I shaved several seconds

off of my personal best lap time and I was promoted to

the next run group. To top it all off they hosted a pizza

and beer social hour at the end of the day.

If you have not yet attended Schnell Fest, you are in

for a real treat - this multi-region event keeps attendees

coming back and is so well-run.

I’ve checked COTA off of my bucket list and I’m

looking forward to the next exhilarating Schnell Fest

this fall!

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

By Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

Seventy years. Wow. Celebrating 70 years of

anything is no small feat these days. And doing so

while still building a model that was introduced 53

years ago is kind of unheard of. Pan Am, Compaq,

EF Hutton, remember them? Yeah, neither do most

people. Porsche has found a way to stay relevant

and still stick to the core values that make the brand

what it is today. A Porsche 911 today still has roots

to the car they built in 1965 that you can see in it’s

design. That’s the company that builds a product that

we’re passionate about. And that’s why we’ve just

celebrated with them on June 9th during the Porsche

Sportscar Together Day commemorating 70 years of

cars that provide the ultimate sports car experience.

As you look through this issue, I hope you enjoy

that fantastic pictures of the cars, and what a variety

of cars we have this month, but also please take a

minute to notice that we have pictures of people too.

Yes, there are people in some of those photos. These

are the people that make our club, your club, what

it is today. Without the people, these cars would just

sit and look pretty. And what fun would that be?

The knowledge, experience and stories that this group

can share will astound you. Have your heard Jack

Griffin’s story about Le Mans? If you haven’t been to

an event, come on out. July 18th the club is putting

together a track day for all skill levels as MotorSport

Ranch in Cresson. If you’ve never been on a track

before, this is your chance to drive with an instructor

and get the most out of your Porsche and maybe

pick up a racing habit you didn’t know you needed.

Want more? Check out Schnell Fest in September at

COTA. I’ll be the slow one in the back. If a day at

the track isn’t your idea of relaxation, come to one

of the socials that Clark and Vanessa plan for you

each month. They have really picked out some great

places for these events and the company can’t be beat.

You’ve already paid the price of admission – come out

and enjoy some of what the Maverick Region has to

offer. Oh, if you’re missing Mavs & Mochas, you’re

really missing out.

I’ll be back next month with an observation about

something silly that you could probably live without,

but until then - Enjoy the Drive!
