I connect with a lot of Porsche people, certainly<br />

in Maverick Region, but also in everyday<br />

conversations with people in my travels, other<br />

social clubs, and in speaking with business partners<br />

and clients across the country.<br />

In many cases I have known these people for<br />

a long time but never realized that we have this<br />

passion in common. Sometimes I see them getting<br />

into or out of a Porsche and say, “Hey, you<br />

never told me you have a Porsche, are you in the<br />

club?” Sometimes I see them at club events and<br />

never realized that they are members. Once this<br />

connection is made, the conversation always seems<br />

to end up in the same place whenever we see each<br />

other again: Porsche.<br />

I have met so many people that turn out to be<br />

passionate about Porsche I often try to determine<br />

ways to find out if someone I am talking to may be<br />

in the Porsche camp. It seems a bit strange to come<br />

right out and say that I drive a 911 every day, rain<br />

or shine, and don’t think I could live without it. In<br />

addition, I don’t mention in everyday conversation<br />

that I am in the Porsche Club, where we spend just<br />

about every weekend getting together and either<br />

driving or talking about our Porsches or gawking<br />

at and talking about each other’s Porsches.<br />

One cannot assume that an individual is<br />

or is not a Porsche person, but once the<br />

connection is made, there is never a lack of<br />

conversation. All Porsche people have an<br />

interesting story to tell!<br />

SPROCKETS: Unexpected Connections<br />

by David Robertson, Region President<br />


Bob Kramer<br />

One of the most important people at our<br />

track driving events is the Safety Chair. This<br />

person makes sure that these events are safe for<br />

everyone and all procedures are being followed<br />

at or above the National PCA standards. This is<br />

obviously a very important role and sometimes<br />

requires tough on-the-spot decisions to make<br />

sure the event is as safe as possible.<br />

Bob Kramer is the Maverick Region Safety Chair,<br />

and anyone involved in our track events will tell you<br />

that we are very fortunate to have him in that role.<br />

The <strong>2019</strong> Drivers’ Education program includes<br />

some great changes, making it more enjoyable for<br />

participants, and there are also new mandates from<br />

PCA that must be implemented this year. Bob has<br />

spent countless hours working with the rest of the<br />

team to include all of these updates into the program<br />

from the perspective of safety being our first priority.<br />

He has deep experience in other track programs and<br />

brings this to the Maverick DE program as well.<br />

Thank you Bob for everything you do for the<br />

Maverick Region!

So You Want to Sell Your Car<br />

by Mike Mahoney<br />

photos provided by Michael Durovick<br />

So you want to sell your<br />

car. Now what?<br />

Do you consign it to a dealer?<br />

Trade it in on a new car? Or do<br />

you try selling to a private party?<br />

If so, where do you market it? PCA<br />

classifieds? Facebook marketplace?<br />

Hemmings? Craigslist? Or what<br />

about a live auction? Or an online<br />

auction like Ebay or Bring a Trailer?<br />

All good ideas, and many sellers<br />

have success stories for each. But<br />

what is the right market for your<br />

car? This past December, I found<br />

myself asking these same questions<br />

when I decided to sell my Emerald<br />

Green Metallic 1976 911S Targa.<br />

After much reflection, I was<br />

compelled to try Bring a Trailer,<br />

despite my mixed emotions.<br />

My hesitation comes from my<br />

experience window-shopping and<br />

bidding on BaT, which -- don’t get<br />

me wrong -- I thoroughly enjoy.<br />

But, if you’ve been on the site and<br />

shopped or bid, you know what I<br />

mean. When you post your car on<br />

BaT, you’d better have your ducks<br />

in a row. Because if you haven’t<br />

prepared appropriately, the BaT<br />

faithful auction trollers will point<br />

out your listings shortcomings<br />

very quickly. You need to enter<br />

the auction with your eyes open,<br />

and understand that the BaT<br />

auction audience is watching and<br />

will not hesitate to comment and<br />

ask questions. Your responses and<br />

responsiveness will make or break<br />

your auction. I knew that before I<br />

listed my car, but was still a little<br />

leery. I did have an advantage<br />

though, because last summer I had<br />

won an auction and experienced it<br />

up close and personal. But I also<br />

knew being a seller would be a very<br />

different experience.<br />

Listing your car<br />

BaT has a basic process for<br />

preparing your car listing, which<br />

typically takes about two weeks.<br />

Upon completion of the initial sign<br />

up form, which requires having a<br />

credit card on file, and after your<br />

car is accepted by BaT (not every<br />

car makes the cut), and you pay<br />

your $99 fee, you’re assigned an<br />

auction specialist. Together, you<br />

and your specialist, over email,<br />

work to assemble an accurate and<br />

enticing listing of your car. The<br />

listing includes specific details<br />

about your car, like mileage,<br />

previous ownership, maintenance,<br />

accidents, and major work done,<br />

along with professional-quality<br />

photos and videos of interior,<br />

exterior, undercarriage, engine<br />

6 <strong>March</strong>

compartment, and receipts. You will<br />

also need to decide on a “reserve,”<br />

which is a minimum selling price<br />

you are willing to accept.<br />

Once you’ve submitted your<br />

car information and photos, your<br />

auction specialist will review, and<br />

after about a week will email a draft<br />

of your listing. They will also review<br />

your reserve price and either agree<br />

or suggest an adjustment. Note: you<br />

don’t have to have a reserve.<br />

Some suggest that a “no<br />

reserve” auction is a way to create<br />

excitement and interest, since the<br />

car will definitely sell, which it<br />

does, but it is a risk for the seller.<br />

You really never know how an<br />

auction is going to go. But all you<br />

need are two bidders interested in<br />

your car to create an environment<br />

where you are most likely to get<br />

your price.<br />

Anyway, back to the listing prep.<br />

After any editing that’s needed, you<br />

will approve the listing and submit<br />

it for posting. It usually takes a day<br />

or two before your listing is “live,”<br />

at which time your seven-day<br />

auction begins.<br />

The auction<br />

Having your car go live on BaT is<br />

pretty exhilarating, waiting for the<br />

first comment and the first bid, and<br />

holding your breath that an auction<br />

troller doesn’t ask a question you’re<br />

not prepared for. You really need<br />

to stay close to your phone or<br />

computer during the auction.<br />

You are notified via email each<br />

time a bid is placed and when<br />

questions are asked. But you need<br />

to keep tabs on the auction within<br />

BaT so you can answer questions<br />

in a timely manner. I’ll pass along<br />

some advice I was given before my<br />

auction. A friend in the club told me<br />

to stay calm and keep my favorite<br />

adult beverage handy, and it was<br />

much appreciated and needed.<br />

It’s always the comments<br />

and questions from the auction<br />

followers who you know full well<br />

have no intention of bidding.<br />

They’re the ones that hit a nerve.<br />

But you just have to remember to<br />

stay calm and don’t respond with<br />

a knee-jerk reaction. Pause, take<br />

a swig, and ponder your response<br />

before posting.<br />

It’s important to note that not<br />

all questions or comments require<br />

a response. But when responding, it<br />

is most important to use the handle<br />

of the user to ensure they see the<br />

answer and that it doesn’t get lost in<br />

the sea of comments. The last thing<br />

you want is someone questioning<br />

the seller’s responsiveness.<br />

As you get close to the end of the<br />

auction, this is where the excitement<br />

begins. That is, if you have a couple<br />

interested parties. And you don’t<br />

always know that until you get to<br />

about the 1-hour mark. the most<br />

exciting time is within the 2-minute<br />

mark. Most of the time it’s a bidder<br />

that has not commented or asked a<br />

question. And suddenly within 30<br />

minutes of the auction’s end, they<br />

place a bid.<br />

When the auction end is within<br />

two minutes, the clock is extended<br />

by an additional two minutes after<br />

every bid, but that ends after about<br />

the fourth extension. One reason for<br />

this is that BaT takes a 5% fee from<br />

the bidder’s credit card on file when<br />

they place a bid, which ensures<br />

serious bidders only. It is refunded<br />

if they are not the winning bidder.<br />

When the auction is over, the fee<br />

is charged to the buyer’s card. And<br />

hopefully you have sold your car. If<br />

not, the auction ends with “reserve<br />

not met.” Something important to<br />

note here: if the auction gets close<br />

to your reserve, BaT reserves the<br />

right to make up the difference to<br />

make the sale. This makes sense but<br />

obviously the final bid needs to be<br />

close enough where they still make<br />

money from the buyer’s 5% fee.<br />

After the auction<br />

Upon completion of the auction,<br />

and you’ve sold your car, BaT will<br />

send you the contact information<br />

of the winning bidder. They suggest<br />

you reach out to the winner as<br />

soon as possible to set up a time to<br />

complete the transaction and take<br />

delivery of the car. BaT suggests<br />

that you have funds wire transferred<br />

rather than cash or cashier’s check.<br />

And I agree. It’s easy and the safest<br />

way to get paid.<br />

In the event the transaction<br />

between the buyer and seller can’t<br />

be completed, there are steps you<br />

can take through BaT to have your<br />

buyer’s fee refunded.<br />

All in all, I’m a fan of Bring a<br />

Trailer. I think the environment<br />

actually protects both the buyer<br />

and seller and is a good option for<br />

selling your car. But I recognize<br />

that not every car is a good fit. I<br />

will say, though, that in my case, it<br />

worked well and I think the buyer<br />

felt the same.<br />

So how did I do with my auction?<br />

Well I sold my car, for a price I<br />

thought was fair to both parties.<br />

The transaction after the auction<br />

was painless. The auction itself<br />

was smooth, fun to watch, and got<br />

really exciting during the last two<br />

minutes. So I was happy.<br />

If you choose to sell your car on<br />

BaT, in my opinion the three most<br />

important factors for a successful<br />

auction are:<br />

1. Set a realistic reserve and<br />

understand the true market value<br />

of your car.<br />

2. Invest in professional photos.<br />

3. Be upfront about your car’s<br />

flaws and point them out, because,<br />

believe me, if you don’t, the BaT<br />

faithful will.<br />

Of the ones I have driven, my very own<br />

Panamera 4 is my favorite. My favorite to<br />

drool over would be the GT3 RS.<br />

Favorite Maverick or PCA event<br />

I honestly have loved participating in all of<br />

them, so I have no favorite that stands out<br />

from the rest.<br />

Best thing about owning a Porsche<br />

I’d have to say the friends I’ve made as a<br />

result of owning a Porsche, and by that I<br />

mean fellow Porsche owners.<br />

Mavs & Mochas: Neiman Marcus at Willow Bend<br />

by Pat Carmichael<br />

pphotos provided by Paul Moseley<br />

It was 35 degrees as I rolled into the Neiman Marcus<br />

parking garage at Willow Bend Mall about 8:15 am,<br />

and lo and behold, everybody was already there! I<br />

snagged a parking place near the end of the fourth row<br />

of Porsches and started making my way to the coffee<br />

bar inside Neiman’s.<br />

What a spread! Gratis coffee, breakfast burritos,<br />

and orange mimosas all ready to go for the PCA<br />

faithful. The Neiman Marcus staff, led by Marjon<br />

Zabihi and Rusty Smith, personally welcomed us.<br />

They had set up tables with several drawings for<br />

luxury specialty items near the entry, prompting a<br />

frenzy of activity filling out entries. Did I mention the<br />

exclusive opportunity to shop?<br />

What a great time this all made, with a warm cozy<br />

place to gather and enjoy the special Neiman hospitality.<br />

A half dozen “more than fun” track-worthy Porsche<br />

cars lined up at the south entry porte-cochère, offering<br />

special up-close photo ops.<br />

The “official” count of attending cars was well<br />

over 120. This is certainly one of the more popular<br />

venues, being under cover and protected from the<br />

elements, especially on a chilly day like this. Our<br />

buddies from Park Place Porsche were there with<br />

their latest white Cayenne and offering service<br />

insights to the PCA members.<br />

Mark and Monda Hanna were there, with not one<br />

but two 914 race cars, and I know all the 911 9xx<br />

flavors were in attendance. I don’t believe anybody had<br />

their tops down in any Cabs or Boxsters -- ha! Even<br />

with the cold there were plenty of people mingling<br />

outside and sharing stories on all things car-related and<br />

beyond. By 10:30 am, we were leaving, and there were<br />

almost eight full rows of Porsches. Another completely<br />

successful Mavs & Mochas!<br />

We’ll be looking forward to the upcoming All<br />

Member drive and party in Gunter, TX!<br />

<strong>2019</strong> Autocross Series: Autocrossing is “Four” Porsches<br />

by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair<br />

photos by Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images<br />

Autocrossing is for all Porsches, including the new<br />

four-door and and old four-cylinder models. For <strong>2019</strong>,<br />

to better align our autocross car control classes to the<br />

majority of the new 4-door Porsche owners, as well as<br />

bring some of those neat old four-cylinder cars from<br />

the ‘50s and ‘60s back from the museums and Show<br />

& Shine events, we added a class that will put you all<br />

together to have some fun.<br />

No longer do the Cayennes, Macans, and Panameras<br />

have to mix it up with Boxsters and Caymans. No<br />

longer do any of the early four-cylinder Porsches have<br />

to take on the 914 mid-engine brigade. You guys get<br />

to come play in your own class. Modern, big, and<br />

powerful vs early, small, and light cars are all in class<br />

P0. This should be fun! Even SCCA has added a class<br />

for Classic Sports Cars: HCS and R for the old real race<br />

cars. No more excuses! Come out and show us what<br />

you’ve got, what you have or what you had, or to learn<br />

to drive again! See our <strong>2019</strong> autocross schedule on the<br />

facing page.<br />

Also, at the 2018 year end awards banquet, below<br />

are some of the Porsche class winners showing off<br />

their awards. In particular, one driver out of over 300<br />

participants in the 10-event series last year, who ran in a<br />

highly competitive class, had to come from behind more<br />

than a few times, got lucky a few times, and won his<br />

class in all ten events, earning 100 points for the season:<br />

Choose Carefully: Part Two<br />

by Robert Turner<br />

It’s not so much that I am an automotive journalist.<br />

I’ve checked, the pay ain’t so great. Or an autoindustry<br />

pundit, ditto about the pay part. No, I think<br />

of myself as an observer of things automotive. More<br />

of an automotive chronicler about all things Porsche.<br />

A monthly column kinda guy that writes from the<br />

heart. Most of the time. But there are times when I<br />

would love to be that guy that gets the call from an<br />

automotive manufacturer—BIG hint here Porsche—<br />

and a voice says something pithy like “How do you feel<br />

about The Steffel Pass in Zandfortin or the lovely Isle<br />

of Marjorie in the Delfinium Islands? Think you might<br />

fancy a trip there? Oh, and we will throw in some cars<br />

for you to drive.” At this point, the writer is supposed<br />

to pause for a few seconds to leave the automotive<br />

marketing types hanging—like you’ll really turn them<br />

down—before saying very causally, “Let me check my<br />

calendar and see if those dates work.”<br />

Inside you are shouting, YES! I would<br />

cancel my wedding or try to delay the birth<br />

of my child to go there. And YES! I may<br />

even possibly be persuaded—definitely<br />

maybe—that I could squeeze in driving<br />

some fast cars too.<br />

(Oh, and I hear that they ply you with good food<br />

and very good drink. Lots of it.) So you deliberately<br />

slow down your brain and try to be uber cool and<br />

nonchalant and work your mouth very carefully to<br />

say each word S L O W L Y, so you don’t end up<br />

sounding like an idiot.<br />

But that never works. You’ll blurt out<br />

“YesIwouldlovetogotoZandfortinyesplease<br />

thankyouverymuch.” Or something that is probably<br />

very close to unintelligible. The suave auto-marketing<br />

types knows what your response will be, so he tells<br />

you to check your inbox, ‘cause the itinerary will be<br />

forthcoming. You hang up and start packing right<br />

away, even though the trip is five weeks out. You do<br />

want to be prepared after all.<br />

What does this have to do with a car company’s<br />

configurator? Well, I will get around to it - eventually.<br />

See the auto companies want the Journos to write<br />

glowingly about their new offerings. They pick<br />

beautiful places, take over high-star hotels and<br />

make those hardworking Journos sit through a mind<br />

numbing half hour to forty-five minutes of marketing<br />

speak before turning them loose in the car of the<br />

moment. But wait there’s more. They usually put<br />

every bell and whistle on the car to make sure that all<br />

the good stuff gets tested and written about.<br />

Problem is, when the writer is talking about this<br />

button here, that switch there or this sub-set of<br />

commands in the dark innards of the car’s performance<br />

capabilities, we are left lusting and wanting for things<br />

that we may not need or are too expensive to buy. I<br />

mean I would love to listen to a gold-plated Bergfarb<br />

Grand Marquis sound system, but probably won’t<br />

pony for the seven large to buy it. And the micromium<br />

plated multi-faceted sport design exhaust at a mind<br />

numbing four big ones will probably not be one of the<br />

boxes I tick off. But the Journos? Man they love it.<br />

It’s pretty easy to turn a $60K car into a $80K (or<br />

at least $70K) car nowadays. And in Porsche’s case, a<br />

$100K car into a $150K car in a snap. Someday when<br />

I configure my 911, I may remember some writer with<br />

his hair on fire, going 120 MPH into a screaming long<br />

sweeper and talking about how the PDCC with Sport<br />

Chrono really sets the handling tone. But me, I will just<br />

opt for the PASM Sports Suspension at $890 and be<br />

done with it. I don’t mind if my eyeballs giggle on the<br />

road, I just want to take that corner at 125. Oh Baby.<br />

And on that exhaust note, see you all next time.

<strong>2019</strong> Concours Announced<br />

by Mike Mahoney, Concours Chair<br />

The <strong>2019</strong> Concours season is finally upon us.So fire<br />

up your buffers and shine those tires! This year we will<br />

have four events, beginning in April.<br />

April 7 - Judged Show and Shine at Brookhaven<br />

July 14 - People’s Choice at Lakeside Market<br />

Oct 6 - Judged Show and Shine at Brookhaven<br />

Dec 7 - People’s Choice in conjunction with Founder’s Day events<br />

The April 7th Porsche Promenade is a “Top down<br />

show and shine” event meaning the judges will only be<br />

looking for cleanliness of easily visible parts of your<br />

Porsche and not checking every nut, screw, and clamp<br />

for originality.<br />

Your preparations for the event are pretty<br />

straightforward. Clean your car the best that you can.<br />

This includes the interior and exterior, engine bay,<br />

luggage compartment(s), wheels (rims and barrels),<br />

door jams, and other less noticeable areas you may not<br />

normally clean. Judges will be looking at each car in<br />

great detail for cleanliness only to differentiate clean<br />

from extremely clean. We will have multiple judges for<br />

each class to ensure consistency of scores. Each class is<br />

individually judged and competition is within each class.<br />

Good Luck and we look forward to seeing you there.<br />

Rolex 24 Hours: At Daytona<br />

Press Release<br />

Daytona Beach, FL— Nick Boulle and team survived<br />

error and flood to finish in seventh position at this year’s<br />

Rolex 24 At Daytona. Despite epic floods and quickly<br />

changing conditions, the team recovered in order to<br />

record its highest place finish in the twice-around-theclock<br />

classic since its inception.<br />

Team Principal, Patrick Lindsey, started the race and<br />

quickly set about moving up several places as he ran<br />

well within the top 10 for the first hour of the<br />

race. The car was then handed over to Boulle<br />

and later Porsche Young Professional, Matt<br />

Campbell, and Porsche Factory Driver, Patrick<br />

Long, for their first stints of the grueling<br />

endurance race. “This race is so competitive<br />

from the moment you get in for your first stint,”<br />

Boulle said. “The first time I got in the car it was<br />

immediately a sprint.”<br />

Endurance Driver Boulle’s second stint in the<br />

car would be double-stint – referring to a twohour<br />

run with two stops for fuel and tires rather<br />

than a single hour run in the car before a driver<br />

change. During this run from roughly 9PM to<br />

11PM, the team saw Boulle take the lead of the<br />

race before eventually pitting to hand the car<br />

over to Campbell in second place. “When I got<br />

back in for my second stint, I was faced with<br />

class traffic as well as trying to maintain the<br />

lead. The car had great pace and the crew did a<br />

16 <strong>March</strong>

clean job in the pits. We’ve got a really great foundation<br />

to build on moving forward.”<br />

Adversity struck for the first time here as the right<br />

rear wheel became dislodged as Campbell exited pit lane<br />

which led to the #73 Porsche GT3R losing several laps on<br />

the leaders. As the race continued, through strategy and<br />

pace the team of drivers and crew recovered to get the car<br />

back on the lead lap by the time the sun was coming up<br />

on Sunday morning! Boulle, Lindsey, Campbell and Long<br />

all felt positive as the race wound down despite red flags<br />

and uncharacteristically heavy rain.<br />

Long and Campbell, spent the majority of their time<br />

in the car searching for any sign of grip on the track in<br />

the final hours of the race. A combination of oil and<br />

water sent multiple competitors off track, into walls<br />

and each other. Long barely escaped a multicar pileup,<br />

maneuvering the #73 through turns 10 and 11. Campbell<br />

steered clear of any on-track drama and made his way to<br />

the front of the field.<br />

Boulle and Lindsey handled a majority of the driving<br />

Saturday and Saturday night. The race compiled 18 fullcourse<br />

cautions in total, nine of which Lindsey and Boulle<br />

endured over the course of their stint. Both drivers kept<br />

the #73 de Boulle Porsche clean and turning consistent<br />

lap times while fighting to earn laps back.<br />

With two hours remaining and hours of hard work by<br />

the drivers and a sleepless night for the crew, the #73<br />

Park Place Motorsports de Boulle Porsche 911 GT3R was<br />

leading the pack around the Daytona Road Course. As<br />

the rain began to fall more heavily, the team opted to in<br />

hopes of coming out ahead as the race wound down and<br />

go for the top step of the podium. However, just as the pit<br />

sequence began a red flag was thrown due to the flooded<br />

conditions of the race track. After waiting for two hours<br />

on an update from the officials on, it was determined that<br />

the 57th running<br />

of the Rolex<br />

24 At Daytona<br />

would finish<br />

under red.<br />

“It obviously<br />

is heartbreaking<br />

to pit from the<br />

lead and lose out<br />

on winning the<br />

Rolex 24 Hours<br />

of Daytona, but it’s a big year and we just need to focus<br />

forward now.”<br />

Boulles next race is at Sebring International Raceway for<br />

the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by<br />

Advanced Auto Parts. “I’m looking forward to the 12<br />

Hours of Sebring and seeing what we can do,” said Boulle.<br />

The weekend is part of a Super Sebring weekend featuring<br />

the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA<br />

World Endurance Championship. Lindsey will race in<br />

both the traditional 12-hour race Saturday, <strong>March</strong> 16, and<br />

the FIA 1,000 miles of Sebring Friday, <strong>March</strong> 15, with<br />

Project 1, both supported by Park Place Motorsports.<br />

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 Speedster<br />

by Peter Wen<br />

Last year during its 70th year celebration, Porsche<br />

unveiled a 911 Speedster concept car. It was based on the<br />

outgoing 991-generation 911. With the overwhelming<br />

positive response, Porsche later announced they will begin<br />

production of the new Speedster in <strong>2019</strong>. It will be the<br />

fourth 911 Speedster, following the 1989 G-series, the<br />

1994 964, and the 2011 997 Speedsters.<br />

The original Porsche Speedster was produced 1954-<br />

1958 based on the legendary 356. Porsche resurrected the<br />

Speedster nameplate in 1989 to close out the G-series<br />

911 (1974-1989). It generated much needed brand<br />

excitement and sales boost for the new 964. They<br />

repeated this successful formula through<br />

today. All 911 Speedsters are end-of-gen specials<br />

with limited production numbers. With their unique<br />

styling (lower windshields and twin-hump tonneau<br />

covers) and top performance parts, 911 Speedsters<br />

are true collectibles from Day 1.<br />

Excellence’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide offered<br />

these price ranges for Speedsters:<br />

‘89 $110k-$195k 2,056 produced (823 in US)<br />

‘94 $125k-$200k 936 units (427 in US)<br />

‘11 $225k-$275k 356 units (100 in US)<br />

‘19 production pending 1,948 units<br />

Fun fact: In 1955 James Dean traded<br />

in his MG for a Super Speedster. He<br />

put 1,000 miles on the car within 10<br />

days of the purchase. He entered and<br />

Coffee, Cars & Conversation<br />

by Bill Kruder<br />

photos provided by Pat Carmichael<br />

This month’s “conversation”<br />

is another one that took me my<br />

surprise. I have “known” this guy<br />

through <strong>Slipstream</strong> in my 25 years<br />

of membership, but not until the last<br />

few years did I ever meet him. Come<br />

to think of it, with all of you reading<br />

<strong>Slipstream</strong>, it’s safe to say many of<br />

you will know him from his picture<br />

every month, typically on page 4<br />

with the rest of the board members,<br />

as well as numerous articles he’s<br />

written over the years. Once you<br />

meet him you quickly realize that<br />

not only is he the nicest man you will<br />

ever meet but he knows more about<br />

our club than most and certainly<br />

than many of us remember. It’s<br />

my privilege to share his story as<br />

he celebrates his 40th Anniversary<br />

as a PCA member.<br />

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

of “conversations” I would like<br />

to share with you….<br />

Carey Spreen, Member since 1979,<br />

Owner 1982 911SC, 1987 924S,<br />

and 2008 Cayenne<br />

Bill Kruder: So are you originally<br />

from the Dallas Fort Worth area?<br />

Carey Spreen No, I was born<br />

in New Jersey and lived in<br />

Connecticut and Rhode Island<br />

until I was about 15, when we<br />

moved to Plano.<br />

BK: How did you end up in Plano; not<br />

sure there was much there back then?<br />

CS: Well my mom’s sister had<br />

moved here in 1972 and we<br />

came for a visit, and I guess my<br />

parents really liked it as my dad<br />

took a banking job in Dallas the<br />

next year.<br />

BK: Wow so you went to high school<br />

here then?<br />

CS: I did. I went to the old Plano<br />

High School, now Williams, before<br />

there was what is now Plano Senior.<br />

I graduated in 1974.<br />

20 <strong>March</strong><br />

BK: What was your first car in high school?<br />

CS: Actually, I didn’t have a car. I<br />

had a motorcycle that I would ride<br />

to school. Funny as I think about it<br />

now; I was in the band and played<br />

trumpet so I would have this big<br />

case to carry on the bike. Must have<br />

been quite the sight (laughing).<br />

BK: Presume you eventually got a<br />

car right?<br />

CS: I did; but wasn’t until my second<br />

year of college. It was of all things<br />

a 1974 VW “Thing.” It was even in<br />

this olive drab color. It was a great<br />

introduction to “momentum” cars!<br />

BK: How about College?<br />

CS: Went to Texas A&M for my<br />

first two years then transferred to<br />

Texas Tech, so I graduated a Red<br />

Raider, although once you’re an<br />

Aggie, you’re always an Aggie.<br />

BK: How did you get interested in Porsche?<br />

CS: When I was in high school<br />

a family friend had a 914, I just<br />

thought that was the coolest car.<br />

Guess you can say I dreamed about<br />

owning one some day.<br />

BK: What was your first Porsche?<br />

CS: Well like I said I was really taken<br />

by that 914 so in 1976 I traded the<br />

“Thing” in for a ‘74 Lime Green<br />

914 that had the 1.8-liter engine. I<br />

had a lot of fun in that car. When I<br />

graduated college my cousin and I<br />

needed a job so we decide to drive<br />

out to San Diego. It was that trip<br />

that I did my first PCA autocross. I<br />

signed up for it and ran a couple of<br />

laps before someone came up and<br />

said that I needed to be a PCA<br />

member to enter, so I joined on<br />

the spot. That was 1979 and it<br />

was one of the best decisions I<br />

was ever forced to make!<br />

BK: How long did you keep the 914?<br />

CS: I kept that one for about six<br />

years, selling it in 1982.<br />

BK: So how long did you live out there?<br />

CS: Oh, I didn’t find a job and my<br />

dad finally said, “think it’s about<br />

time you come home,” since he<br />

was paying my travel expenses.<br />

I came back and actually ended<br />

up in Austin working for the<br />

local PBS station as a videotape<br />

operator, back when tape was<br />

the only way to record video. If<br />

you have ever watched Austin<br />

City Limits back in the ‘80’s, I’m<br />

actually in the credits (chuckling).<br />

BK: When did you return to Dallas?<br />

CS: After Austin I was in Dallas<br />

through 1989 as a Maverick, then<br />

got transferred to the San Francisco<br />

Bay Area, where I was an active<br />

member of the Golden Gate Region.<br />

I then spent about 18 months in<br />

Portland (Oregon Region) until<br />

finally returning back here in 1998<br />

and settling in DFW again.

BK: Let’s go back to PCA then. You started in San<br />

Diego, then you became a Maverick?<br />

CS: With my moving around I have actually been a<br />

member of five different regions, including being a<br />

Maverick twice. My first was from 1986-89 then again<br />

from 1998 till now, so I have been a Mav for 25 of my<br />

40 years in the club.<br />

BK: Whoa - you have seen some changes, and I know<br />

you have always been involved. What are some of the<br />

positions you have held?<br />

CS: Of all things I think the first was Co-VP but I have<br />

been Editor, Time Trial Chair, Rally Chair, DE Instructor,<br />

Content Editor, and currently Region Secretary.<br />

BK: I’m told you have been to your fair share of Parades?<br />

CS: Guess you could say that. My first was in 1987 right<br />

here in DFW and I have been to 22 others over the years.<br />

BK: Let’s talk about cars; I hear you have had your<br />

share of Porsches over the years?<br />

CS: That I have. After the ‘74 914, I bought a ‘70 914<br />

that had been converted to a six, with a 2.2 S engine,<br />

which was Signal Orange. In 1985, I bought a Tangerine<br />

Opposite Page: 1982 autocross class win Above: Carey with ole pal Derek<br />

Bell at Rennsport V Below: Wolfgang Porsche presenting TTOD trophy to<br />

Carey - 1989 Porsche Parade<br />

Well as usual I always walk away surprised at what life<br />

brings us in meeting people when we just stop or are<br />

stopped to say hello. As Carey told me several times<br />

during our chat: over the 40 years, it’s really about the<br />

people. It doesn’t matter if you are an attendee or a<br />

chairperson - it’s the people. Today we call that Driving<br />

Friendships. Here’s to 40 years Carey!<br />

1970 914-6, a real one this time. I kept this one for over<br />

20 years, selling it in 2006. I also briefly owned a silver<br />

1973 911S, but ended up selling it when my daughter<br />

Geneva was born.<br />

BK: Ok, so tell me one thing that most will never know<br />

about you?<br />

CS: Well I kind of mentioned earlier that I play the<br />

trumpet. I played in both my high school and college<br />

marching bands. Then after college when I was in<br />

Austin, I was a member of the Austin Community Band;<br />

we would play two to three concerts a year. Guess you<br />

could say music has always been kind of a hobby to me.<br />

35 Years Doing What We Love.<br />


Aging Gracefully: No A/C, No Airbag, No Problem<br />

by Kurt Scaggs<br />

The other day I was watching an older episode of The<br />

Grand Tour with famous Porsche-hater Jeremy Clarkson,<br />

and it got me thinking. The hosts were complaining<br />

about the cost of classic cars and how they are better to<br />

look at than to drive. They cited examples of older cars<br />

that had been updated by the likes of Singer and AMG,<br />

or an E-Type with a 6.1 liter V12 as what it took to<br />

make older cars entertaining. I disagree and I think I’m<br />

not alone. I’m not sure what the statistics are comparing<br />

classic and modern owners in the club but I know we<br />

have a healthy contingent of older cars. I know that<br />

many have had many Porsches over the<br />

years (some still do) and have first-hand<br />

experience with these cars even if they<br />

do not have one currently.<br />

I am a classic owner and I’m<br />

relatively new to the brand. I’ve always<br />

kept up with the latest and greatest 911s<br />

through the pages of Car and Driver,<br />

but for some reason I got hooked on the<br />

old ones. My previous “classic” cars<br />

were motivated by fiscal responsibility.<br />

While they would technically qualify<br />

as antique cars today, I can assure you<br />

they are not collectible today or any<br />

day. But don’t think I picked Porsche<br />

because they were collectible.<br />

What I think Clarkson and crew<br />

are missing is the joy of having fun on<br />

public streets.<br />

It’s hard enough to find a place to wring<br />

out a 33-year-old turbo and not scare little<br />

children. I can only imagine what I’d do with<br />

700 horsepower on the way to the grocery store.<br />

Chances are I’d only be doing it once.<br />

To me there is value in doing things yourself, whether<br />

that is troubleshooting the vacuum system or keeping<br />

the brakes from locking up. Why does anyone bother to<br />

open the hood of a modern car? I remember a comedian<br />

joking about the chances of opening your hood only to<br />

find a big on/off switch under there. We keep taking<br />

steps in that direction, don’t we?<br />

Anyway, my experience with “old” Porsches thus far<br />

is that they don’t need much anyway. The ‘87 Carrera<br />

pictured has needed oil, air filters, tires, and a clutch<br />

after 76,000 miles and it’s still bank vault solid. I doubt<br />

any car I’ve ever owned could say that -- even the<br />

Hondas. I’m not saying that old Porsches are the best<br />

cars in the world (they are, incidentally) I’m just saying<br />

that somebody knew what they were doing and cost<br />

savings did not get in the way of executing their vision.<br />

That’s part of what gives these cars their mystique.<br />

They aren’t flashy. They aren’t trendy. They do what<br />

they do and they do it well. As long as you don’t want<br />

to be cool during the summer. But who needs that really?<br />

It doesn’t make it faster, or handle any better. These cars<br />

are just a joy to drive. The parts work together, mostly.<br />

And it’s kind of a kick to see someone look for the<br />

ignition on the right side of the wheel. What they lack in<br />

power massaging memory seats, they more than make<br />

up for in auditory and olfactory bliss. Take that Tesla.<br />

Old Porsches are still my favorite cars to drive. I<br />

never look in the garage and think, I really need to take<br />

that SUV out for a drive and clear my head. There is<br />

nothing better than sitting down low, turning the key<br />

and listening to flat six fire up. An air-cooled flat six.<br />

No, there is one thing. Sitting down low with a chorus<br />

of Porsches nearing redline. Truly driving friendships.<br />

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor<br />

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor<br />

One year ago on these pages I made my editorial<br />

debut if you will. It began with equal parts excitement<br />

and trepidation. That has since cleared up and looking<br />

back now, I can almost remember what it was like to not<br />

have a reoccurring 15th of the month deadline. I can also<br />

remember the first Maverick event that I attended and<br />

wondering what I had gotten myself into. It turns out I<br />

had gotten myself into a great situation for once. Friendly<br />

people, and as the Grinch would say: oh the noise, the<br />

noise noise, noise, noise.<br />

I celebrated my 5 year anniversary last year and prior to<br />

agreeing to be the next editor, I was a part-time member.<br />

I would attend 3-4 events a year that mostly centered on<br />

driving the car, and not talking to the people. Luckily that’s<br />

allowed, but I found that they also encourage the talking<br />

if you’re so inclined. You can probably see where this is<br />

going. It’s our annual fund raising drive and if you just call<br />

the number on your screen, one of our operators will be<br />

happy to chat you up. If only it were that easy. No, what<br />

I’m attempting to do is get you excited about volunteering.<br />

I don’t have a surprise celebrity guest or a tote bag, but<br />

I can tell you that you’ll get to know some great people<br />

and find a way to spend all that extra time that you have.<br />

And there’s also the corporate jet. (There is no corporate jet) Kidding<br />

aside, if you’ve ever thought about volunteering, or you<br />

really do have some free time, it’s a great thing.<br />

Did you know that you can volunteer without committing<br />

to a board member position? It’s true! Drive leaders, corner<br />

workers, event check-in, photographers no experience<br />

necessary. Well, there is some experience necessary, but if<br />

you’ve made it this far, I think you can probably manage. I<br />

know our event chairs are always looking for someone to<br />

share their experiences or photos of their events. What I’m<br />

saying is that if you have an interest, we’ll find a spot for<br />

you. Just think about the fame and notoriety you’ll garner<br />

with your friends and family and event fellow members at<br />

the next Maverick event.<br />

I have really enjoyed being your editor for the past 12<br />

issues, and look forward to continuing. I’ve gotten a lot<br />

out of being a more active member of<br />

the club, and if you’re not I think you<br />

might too. Give it some thought, contact<br />

Landon Stogner our volunteer chair<br />

or check the website to sign up. I look<br />

forward to seeing you at an upcoming.<br />

It’ll be fun. Enjoy the drive!<br />
