The monthly newsletter of the Maverick Region of the Porsche Club of America

Porsche of the Month

Porsche of the Month Selected by Bill Orr, Region Marketing Chair Yellow 2008 Porsche 911 GT3 • Photo by Michael Durovick You can test your knowledge (or Google search ability) of all things Porsche by participating in the monthly trivia contest posted online at http:// mav.pca.org/trivia. Answers are due by the last day of each month. The winner of the trivia contest receives a $25 gift certificate from our sponsor, Zims Autotechnik. In the case of ties, a random drawing determines the winner. We do have a winner. It is Tom Martin getting all 5 of 5 correct!!! An Honorable mention goes out to Christopher Hand that did get 4 of 5 Correct; while no one else got more than 3. I guess using all these Prices was somewhat confusing; so I will throw away that April of 1980 NADA Used Car Guide I found while cleaning my Office. Thanks for Playing and we will see you next month. Answers: 1)b, 2)b, 3)d, 4)c, 5)c 20 November For instruction on how to submit your Porsche photos in the POTM contest go to: http://mav.pca.org/photos/POTM/ Maverick Trivia: Are you a Porschephile?
