I connect with a lot of Porsche people, certainly
in Maverick Region, but also in everyday
conversations with people in my travels, other
social clubs, and in speaking with business partners
and clients across the country.
In many cases I have known these people for
a long time but never realized that we have this
passion in common. Sometimes I see them getting
into or out of a Porsche and say, “Hey, you
never told me you have a Porsche, are you in the
club?” Sometimes I see them at club events and
never realized that they are members. Once this
connection is made, the conversation always seems
to end up in the same place whenever we see each
other again: Porsche.
I have met so many people that turn out to be
passionate about Porsche I often try to determine
ways to find out if someone I am talking to may be
in the Porsche camp. It seems a bit strange to come
right out and say that I drive a 911 every day, rain
or shine, and don’t think I could live without it. In
addition, I don’t mention in everyday conversation
that I am in the Porsche Club, where we spend just
about every weekend getting together and either
driving or talking about our Porsches or gawking
at and talking about each other’s Porsches.
One cannot assume that an individual is
or is not a Porsche person, but once the
connection is made, there is never a lack of
conversation. All Porsche people have an
interesting story to tell!
SPROCKETS: Unexpected Connections
by David Robertson, Region President
MAV OF THE MONTH:
One of the most important people at our
track driving events is the Safety Chair. This
person makes sure that these events are safe for
everyone and all procedures are being followed
at or above the National PCA standards. This is
obviously a very important role and sometimes
requires tough on-the-spot decisions to make
sure the event is as safe as possible.
Bob Kramer is the Maverick Region Safety Chair,
and anyone involved in our track events will tell you
that we are very fortunate to have him in that role.
The 2019 Drivers’ Education program includes
some great changes, making it more enjoyable for
participants, and there are also new mandates from
PCA that must be implemented this year. Bob has
spent countless hours working with the rest of the
team to include all of these updates into the program
from the perspective of safety being our first priority.
He has deep experience in other track programs and
brings this to the Maverick DE program as well.
Thank you Bob for everything you do for the

So You Want to Sell Your Car
by Mike Mahoney
photos provided by Michael Durovick
So you want to sell your
car. Now what?
Do you consign it to a dealer?
Trade it in on a new car? Or do
you try selling to a private party?
If so, where do you market it? PCA
classifieds? Facebook marketplace?
Hemmings? Craigslist? Or what
about a live auction? Or an online
auction like Ebay or Bring a Trailer?
All good ideas, and many sellers
have success stories for each. But
what is the right market for your
car? This past December, I found
myself asking these same questions
when I decided to sell my Emerald
Green Metallic 1976 911S Targa.
After much reflection, I was
compelled to try Bring a Trailer,
despite my mixed emotions.
My hesitation comes from my
experience window-shopping and
bidding on BaT, which -- don’t get
me wrong -- I thoroughly enjoy.
But, if you’ve been on the site and
shopped or bid, you know what I
mean. When you post your car on
BaT, you’d better have your ducks
in a row. Because if you haven’t
prepared appropriately, the BaT
faithful auction trollers will point
out your listings shortcomings
very quickly. You need to enter
the auction with your eyes open,
and understand that the BaT
auction audience is watching and
will not hesitate to comment and
ask questions. Your responses and
responsiveness will make or break
your auction. I knew that before I
listed my car, but was still a little
leery. I did have an advantage
though, because last summer I had
won an auction and experienced it
up close and personal. But I also
knew being a seller would be a very
Listing your car
BaT has a basic process for
preparing your car listing, which
typically takes about two weeks.
Upon completion of the initial sign
up form, which requires having a
credit card on file, and after your
car is accepted by BaT (not every
car makes the cut), and you pay
your $99 fee, you’re assigned an
auction specialist. Together, you
and your specialist, over email,
work to assemble an accurate and
enticing listing of your car. The
listing includes specific details
about your car, like mileage,
previous ownership, maintenance,
accidents, and major work done,
along with professional-quality
photos and videos of interior,
exterior, undercarriage, engine
compartment, and receipts. You will
also need to decide on a “reserve,”
which is a minimum selling price
you are willing to accept.
Once you’ve submitted your
car information and photos, your
auction specialist will review, and
after about a week will email a draft
of your listing. They will also review
your reserve price and either agree
or suggest an adjustment. Note: you
don’t have to have a reserve.
Some suggest that a “no
reserve” auction is a way to create
excitement and interest, since the
car will definitely sell, which it
does, but it is a risk for the seller.
You really never know how an
auction is going to go. But all you
need are two bidders interested in
your car to create an environment
where you are most likely to get
Anyway, back to the listing prep.
After any editing that’s needed, you
will approve the listing and submit
it for posting. It usually takes a day
or two before your listing is “live,”
at which time your seven-day
Having your car go live on BaT is
pretty exhilarating, waiting for the
first comment and the first bid, and
holding your breath that an auction
troller doesn’t ask a question you’re
not prepared for. You really need
to stay close to your phone or
computer during the auction.
You are notified via email each
time a bid is placed and when
questions are asked. But you need
to keep tabs on the auction within
BaT so you can answer questions
in a timely manner. I’ll pass along
some advice I was given before my
auction. A friend in the club told me
to stay calm and keep my favorite
adult beverage handy, and it was
much appreciated and needed.
It’s always the comments
and questions from the auction
followers who you know full well
have no intention of bidding.
They’re the ones that hit a nerve.
But you just have to remember to
stay calm and don’t respond with
a knee-jerk reaction. Pause, take
a swig, and ponder your response
It’s important to note that not
all questions or comments require
a response. But when responding, it
is most important to use the handle
of the user to ensure they see the
answer and that it doesn’t get lost in
the sea of comments. The last thing
you want is someone questioning
the seller’s responsiveness.
As you get close to the end of the
auction, this is where the excitement
begins. That is, if you have a couple
interested parties. And you don’t
always know that until you get to
about the 1-hour mark. the most
exciting time is within the 2-minute
mark. Most of the time it’s a bidder
that has not commented or asked a
question. And suddenly within 30
minutes of the auction’s end, they
place a bid.
When the auction end is within
two minutes, the clock is extended
by an additional two minutes after
every bid, but that ends after about
the fourth extension. One reason for
this is that BaT takes a 5% fee from
the bidder’s credit card on file when
they place a bid, which ensures
serious bidders only. It is refunded
if they are not the winning bidder.
When the auction is over, the fee
is charged to the buyer’s card. And
hopefully you have sold your car. If
not, the auction ends with “reserve
not met.” Something important to
note here: if the auction gets close
to your reserve, BaT reserves the
right to make up the difference to
make the sale. This makes sense but
obviously the final bid needs to be
close enough where they still make
money from the buyer’s 5% fee.
After the auction
Upon completion of the auction,
and you’ve sold your car, BaT will
send you the contact information
of the winning bidder. They suggest
you reach out to the winner as
soon as possible to set up a time to
complete the transaction and take
delivery of the car. BaT suggests
that you have funds wire transferred
rather than cash or cashier’s check.
And I agree. It’s easy and the safest
way to get paid.
In the event the transaction
between the buyer and seller can’t
be completed, there are steps you
can take through BaT to have your
buyer’s fee refunded.
All in all, I’m a fan of Bring a
Trailer. I think the environment
actually protects both the buyer
and seller and is a good option for
selling your car. But I recognize
that not every car is a good fit. I
will say, though, that in my case, it
worked well and I think the buyer
felt the same.
So how did I do with my auction?
Well I sold my car, for a price I
thought was fair to both parties.
The transaction after the auction
was painless. The auction itself
was smooth, fun to watch, and got
really exciting during the last two
minutes. So I was happy.
If you choose to sell your car on
BaT, in my opinion the three most
important factors for a successful
1. Set a realistic reserve and
understand the true market value
of your car.
2. Invest in professional photos.
3. Be upfront about your car’s
flaws and point them out, because,
believe me, if you don’t, the BaT

Mavs & Mochas: Neiman Marcus at Willow Bend
by Pat Carmichael
pphotos provided by Paul Moseley
It was 35 degrees as I rolled into the Neiman Marcus
parking garage at Willow Bend Mall about 8:15 am,
and lo and behold, everybody was already there! I
snagged a parking place near the end of the fourth row
of Porsches and started making my way to the coffee
bar inside Neiman’s.
What a spread! Gratis coffee, breakfast burritos,
and orange mimosas all ready to go for the PCA
faithful. The Neiman Marcus staff, led by Marjon
Zabihi and Rusty Smith, personally welcomed us.
They had set up tables with several drawings for
luxury specialty items near the entry, prompting a
frenzy of activity filling out entries. Did I mention the
exclusive opportunity to shop?
What a great time this all made, with a warm cozy
place to gather and enjoy the special Neiman hospitality.
A half dozen “more than fun” track-worthy Porsche
cars lined up at the south entry porte-cochère, offering
special up-close photo ops.
The “official” count of attending cars was well
over 120. This is certainly one of the more popular
venues, being under cover and protected from the
elements, especially on a chilly day like this. Our
buddies from Park Place Porsche were there with
their latest white Cayenne and offering service
insights to the PCA members.
Mark and Monda Hanna were there, with not one
but two 914 race cars, and I know all the 911 9xx
flavors were in attendance. I don’t believe anybody had
their tops down in any Cabs or Boxsters -- ha! Even
with the cold there were plenty of people mingling
outside and sharing stories on all things car-related and
beyond. By 10:30 am, we were leaving, and there were
almost eight full rows of Porsches. Another completely
successful Mavs & Mochas!
We’ll be looking forward to the upcoming All
Member drive and party in Gunter, TX!

2019 Autocross Series: Autocrossing is “Four” Porsches
by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
photos by Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images
Autocrossing is for all Porsches, including the new
four-door and and old four-cylinder models. For 2019,
to better align our autocross car control classes to the
majority of the new 4-door Porsche owners, as well as
bring some of those neat old four-cylinder cars from
the ‘50s and ‘60s back from the museums and Show
& Shine events, we added a class that will put you all
together to have some fun.
No longer do the Cayennes, Macans, and Panameras
have to mix it up with Boxsters and Caymans. No
longer do any of the early four-cylinder Porsches have
to take on the 914 mid-engine brigade. You guys get
to come play in your own class. Modern, big, and
powerful vs early, small, and light cars are all in class
P0. This should be fun! Even SCCA has added a class
for Classic Sports Cars: HCS and R for the old real race
cars. No more excuses! Come out and show us what
you’ve got, what you have or what you had, or to learn
to drive again! See our 2019 autocross schedule on the
Also, at the 2018 year end awards banquet, below

their awards. In particular, one driver out of over 300
participants in the 10-event series last year, who ran in a

than a few times, got lucky a few times, and won his
class in all ten events, earning 100 points for the season:

Choose Carefully: Part Two
by Robert Turner
It’s not so much that I am an automotive journalist.
I’ve checked, the pay ain’t so great. Or an autoindustry
pundit, ditto about the pay part. No, I think
of myself as an observer of things automotive. More
of an automotive chronicler about all things Porsche.
A monthly column kinda guy that writes from the
heart. Most of the time. But there are times when I
would love to be that guy that gets the call from an
automotive manufacturer—BIG hint here Porsche—
and a voice says something pithy like “How do you feel
about The Steffel Pass in Zandfortin or the lovely Isle
of Marjorie in the Delfinium Islands? Think you might
fancy a trip there? Oh, and we will throw in some cars
for you to drive.” At this point, the writer is supposed
to pause for a few seconds to leave the automotive
marketing types hanging—like you’ll really turn them
down—before saying very causally, “Let me check my
calendar and see if those dates work.”
Inside you are shouting, YES! I would
cancel my wedding or try to delay the birth
of my child to go there. And YES! I may
even possibly be persuaded—definitely
maybe—that I could squeeze in driving
some fast cars too.
(Oh, and I hear that they ply you with good food
and very good drink. Lots of it.) So you deliberately
slow down your brain and try to be uber cool and
nonchalant and work your mouth very carefully to
say each word S L O W L Y, so you don’t end up
sounding like an idiot.
But that never works. You’ll blurt out
thankyouverymuch.” Or something that is probably
very close to unintelligible. The suave auto-marketing
types knows what your response will be, so he tells
you to check your inbox, ‘cause the itinerary will be
forthcoming. You hang up and start packing right
away, even though the trip is five weeks out. You do
want to be prepared after all.
What does this have to do with a car company’s
configurator? Well, I will get around to it - eventually.
See the auto companies want the Journos to write
glowingly about their new offerings. They pick
beautiful places, take over high-star hotels and
make those hardworking Journos sit through a mind
numbing half hour to forty-five minutes of marketing
speak before turning them loose in the car of the
moment. But wait there’s more. They usually put
every bell and whistle on the car to make sure that all
the good stuff gets tested and written about.
Problem is, when the writer is talking about this
button here, that switch there or this sub-set of
commands in the dark innards of the car’s performance
capabilities, we are left lusting and wanting for things
that we may not need or are too expensive to buy. I
mean I would love to listen to a gold-plated Bergfarb
Grand Marquis sound system, but probably won’t
pony for the seven large to buy it. And the micromium
plated multi-faceted sport design exhaust at a mind
numbing four big ones will probably not be one of the
boxes I tick off. But the Journos? Man they love it.
It’s pretty easy to turn a $60K car into a $80K (or
at least $70K) car nowadays. And in Porsche’s case, a
$100K car into a $150K car in a snap. Someday when
I configure my 911, I may remember some writer with
his hair on fire, going 120 MPH into a screaming long
sweeper and talking about how the PDCC with Sport
Chrono really sets the handling tone. But me, I will just
opt for the PASM Sports Suspension at $890 and be
done with it. I don’t mind if my eyeballs giggle on the
road, I just want to take that corner at 125. Oh Baby.
And on that exhaust note, see you all next time.
2019 Concours Announced
by Mike Mahoney, Concours Chair
The 2019 Concours season is finally upon us.So fire
up your buffers and shine those tires! This year we will
have four events, beginning in April.
April 7 - Judged Show and Shine at Brookhaven
July 14 - People’s Choice at Lakeside Market
Oct 6 - Judged Show and Shine at Brookhaven
Dec 7 - People’s Choice in conjunction with Founder’s Day events
The April 7th Porsche Promenade is a “Top down
show and shine” event meaning the judges will only be
looking for cleanliness of easily visible parts of your
Porsche and not checking every nut, screw, and clamp
Your preparations for the event are pretty
straightforward. Clean your car the best that you can.
This includes the interior and exterior, engine bay,
luggage compartment(s), wheels (rims and barrels),
door jams, and other less noticeable areas you may not
normally clean. Judges will be looking at each car in
great detail for cleanliness only to differentiate clean
from extremely clean. We will have multiple judges for
each class to ensure consistency of scores. Each class is
individually judged and competition is within each class.
Good Luck and we look forward to seeing you there.

Rolex 24 Hours: At Daytona
Daytona Beach, FL— Nick Boulle and team survived
error and flood to finish in seventh position at this year’s
Rolex 24 At Daytona. Despite epic floods and quickly
changing conditions, the team recovered in order to
record its highest place finish in the twice-around-theclock
classic since its inception.
Team Principal, Patrick Lindsey, started the race and
quickly set about moving up several places as he ran
well within the top 10 for the first hour of the
race. The car was then handed over to Boulle
and later Porsche Young Professional, Matt
Campbell, and Porsche Factory Driver, Patrick
Long, for their first stints of the grueling
endurance race. “This race is so competitive
from the moment you get in for your first stint,”
Boulle said. “The first time I got in the car it was
immediately a sprint.”
Endurance Driver Boulle’s second stint in the
car would be double-stint – referring to a twohour
run with two stops for fuel and tires rather
than a single hour run in the car before a driver
change. During this run from roughly 9PM to
11PM, the team saw Boulle take the lead of the
race before eventually pitting to hand the car
over to Campbell in second place. “When I got
back in for my second stint, I was faced with
class traffic as well as trying to maintain the
lead. The car had great pace and the crew did a
clean job in the pits. We’ve got a really great foundation
to build on moving forward.”
Adversity struck for the first time here as the right
rear wheel became dislodged as Campbell exited pit lane
which led to the #73 Porsche GT3R losing several laps on
the leaders. As the race continued, through strategy and
pace the team of drivers and crew recovered to get the car
back on the lead lap by the time the sun was coming up
on Sunday morning! Boulle, Lindsey, Campbell and Long
all felt positive as the race wound down despite red flags
and uncharacteristically heavy rain.
Long and Campbell, spent the majority of their time
in the car searching for any sign of grip on the track in
the final hours of the race. A combination of oil and
water sent multiple competitors off track, into walls
and each other. Long barely escaped a multicar pileup,
maneuvering the #73 through turns 10 and 11. Campbell
steered clear of any on-track drama and made his way to
the front of the field.
Boulle and Lindsey handled a majority of the driving
Saturday and Saturday night. The race compiled 18 fullcourse
cautions in total, nine of which Lindsey and Boulle
endured over the course of their stint. Both drivers kept
the #73 de Boulle Porsche clean and turning consistent
lap times while fighting to earn laps back.
With two hours remaining and hours of hard work by
the drivers and a sleepless night for the crew, the #73
Park Place Motorsports de Boulle Porsche 911 GT3R was
leading the pack around the Daytona Road Course. As
the rain began to fall more heavily, the team opted to in
hopes of coming out ahead as the race wound down and
go for the top step of the podium. However, just as the pit
sequence began a red flag was thrown due to the flooded
conditions of the race track. After waiting for two hours
on an update from the officials on, it was determined that
the 57th running
of the Rolex
24 At Daytona
to pit from the
lead and lose out
on winning the
Rolex 24 Hours
of Daytona, but it’s a big year and we just need to focus
Boulles next race is at Sebring International Raceway for
the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by
Advanced Auto Parts. “I’m looking forward to the 12
Hours of Sebring and seeing what we can do,” said Boulle.
The weekend is part of a Super Sebring weekend featuring
the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA
World Endurance Championship. Lindsey will race in
both the traditional 12-hour race Saturday, March 16, and
the FIA 1,000 miles of Sebring Friday, March 15, with
Project 1, both supported by Park Place Motorsports.

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 Speedster
by Peter Wen
Last year during its 70th year celebration, Porsche
unveiled a 911 Speedster concept car. It was based on the
outgoing 991-generation 911. With the overwhelming
positive response, Porsche later announced they will begin
production of the new Speedster in 2019. It will be the
fourth 911 Speedster, following the 1989 G-series, the
1994 964, and the 2011 997 Speedsters.
The original Porsche Speedster was produced 1954-
1958 based on the legendary 356. Porsche resurrected the
Speedster nameplate in 1989 to close out the G-series
911 (1974-1989). It generated much needed brand
excitement and sales boost for the new 964. They
repeated this successful formula through
today. All 911 Speedsters are end-of-gen specials
with limited production numbers. With their unique
styling (lower windshields and twin-hump tonneau
covers) and top performance parts, 911 Speedsters
are true collectibles from Day 1.
Excellence’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide offered
these price ranges for Speedsters:
‘89 $110k-$195k 2,056 produced (823 in US)
‘94 $125k-$200k 936 units (427 in US)
‘11 $225k-$275k 356 units (100 in US)
‘19 production pending 1,948 units
Fun fact: In 1955 James Dean traded
in his MG for a Super Speedster. He
put 1,000 miles on the car within 10
days of the purchase. He entered and
won his first road race at Palm
Springs on March 26 and 27, 1955.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by Pat Carmichael
This month’s “conversation”
is another one that took me my
surprise. I have “known” this guy
through Slipstream in my 25 years
of membership, but not until the last
few years did I ever meet him. Come
to think of it, with all of you reading
Slipstream, it’s safe to say many of
you will know him from his picture
every month, typically on page 4
with the rest of the board members,
as well as numerous articles he’s
written over the years. Once you
meet him you quickly realize that
not only is he the nicest man you will
ever meet but he knows more about
our club than most and certainly
than many of us remember. It’s
my privilege to share his story as
he celebrates his 40th Anniversary
as a PCA member.
So here is the next in my series
of “conversations” I would like
to share with you….
Carey Spreen, Member since 1979,
Owner 1982 911SC, 1987 924S,
and 2008 Cayenne
Bill Kruder: So are you originally
from the Dallas Fort Worth area?
Carey Spreen No, I was born
in New Jersey and lived in
Connecticut and Rhode Island
until I was about 15, when we
moved to Plano.
BK: How did you end up in Plano; not
sure there was much there back then?
CS: Well my mom’s sister had
moved here in 1972 and we
came for a visit, and I guess my
parents really liked it as my dad
took a banking job in Dallas the
BK: Wow so you went to high school
CS: I did. I went to the old Plano
High School, now Williams, before
there was what is now Plano Senior.
I graduated in 1974.
BK: What was your first car in high school?
CS: Actually, I didn’t have a car. I
had a motorcycle that I would ride
to school. Funny as I think about it
now; I was in the band and played
trumpet so I would have this big
case to carry on the bike. Must have
been quite the sight (laughing).
BK: Presume you eventually got a
CS: I did; but wasn’t until my second
year of college. It was of all things
a 1974 VW “Thing.” It was even in
this olive drab color. It was a great
introduction to “momentum” cars!
BK: How about College?
CS: Went to Texas A&M for my
first two years then transferred to
Texas Tech, so I graduated a Red
Raider, although once you’re an
Aggie, you’re always an Aggie.
BK: How did you get interested in Porsche?
CS: When I was in high school
a family friend had a 914, I just
thought that was the coolest car.
Guess you can say I dreamed about
owning one some day.
BK: What was your first Porsche?
CS: Well like I said I was really taken
by that 914 so in 1976 I traded the
“Thing” in for a ‘74 Lime Green
914 that had the 1.8-liter engine. I
had a lot of fun in that car. When I
graduated college my cousin and I
needed a job so we decide to drive
out to San Diego. It was that trip
that I did my first PCA autocross. I
signed up for it and ran a couple of
laps before someone came up and
said that I needed to be a PCA
member to enter, so I joined on
the spot. That was 1979 and it
was one of the best decisions I
was ever forced to make!
BK: How long did you keep the 914?
CS: I kept that one for about six
years, selling it in 1982.
BK: So how long did you live out there?
CS: Oh, I didn’t find a job and my
dad finally said, “think it’s about
time you come home,” since he
was paying my travel expenses.
I came back and actually ended
up in Austin working for the
local PBS station as a videotape
operator, back when tape was
the only way to record video. If
you have ever watched Austin
City Limits back in the ‘80’s, I’m
actually in the credits (chuckling).
BK: When did you return to Dallas?
CS: After Austin I was in Dallas
through 1989 as a Maverick, then
got transferred to the San Francisco
Bay Area, where I was an active
member of the Golden Gate Region.
I then spent about 18 months in
Portland (Oregon Region) until
finally returning back here in 1998
and settling in DFW again.
BK: Let’s go back to PCA then. You started in San
Diego, then you became a Maverick?
CS: With my moving around I have actually been a
member of five different regions, including being a
Maverick twice. My first was from 1986-89 then again
from 1998 till now, so I have been a Mav for 25 of my
40 years in the club.
BK: Whoa - you have seen some changes, and I know
you have always been involved. What are some of the
positions you have held?
CS: Of all things I think the first was Co-VP but I have
been Editor, Time Trial Chair, Rally Chair, DE Instructor,
Content Editor, and currently Region Secretary.
BK: I’m told you have been to your fair share of Parades?
CS: Guess you could say that. My first was in 1987 right
here in DFW and I have been to 22 others over the years.
BK: Let’s talk about cars; I hear you have had your
share of Porsches over the years?
CS: That I have. After the ‘74 914, I bought a ‘70 914
that had been converted to a six, with a 2.2 S engine,
which was Signal Orange. In 1985, I bought a Tangerine

Carey - 1989 Porsche Parade
Well as usual I always walk away surprised at what life
brings us in meeting people when we just stop or are
stopped to say hello. As Carey told me several times
during our chat: over the 40 years, it’s really about the
people. It doesn’t matter if you are an attendee or a
chairperson - it’s the people. Today we call that Driving
Friendships. Here’s to 40 years Carey!
1970 914-6, a real one this time. I kept this one for over
20 years, selling it in 2006. I also briefly owned a silver
1973 911S, but ended up selling it when my daughter
Geneva was born.
BK: Ok, so tell me one thing that most will never know
CS: Well I kind of mentioned earlier that I play the
trumpet. I played in both my high school and college
marching bands. Then after college when I was in
Austin, I was a member of the Austin Community Band;
we would play two to three concerts a year. Guess you
could say music has always been kind of a hobby to me.

35 Years Doing What We Love.
Aging Gracefully: No A/C, No Airbag, No Problem
by Kurt Scaggs
The other day I was watching an older episode of The
Grand Tour with famous Porsche-hater Jeremy Clarkson,
and it got me thinking. The hosts were complaining
about the cost of classic cars and how they are better to
look at than to drive. They cited examples of older cars
that had been updated by the likes of Singer and AMG,
or an E-Type with a 6.1 liter V12 as what it took to
make older cars entertaining. I disagree and I think I’m
not alone. I’m not sure what the statistics are comparing
classic and modern owners in the club but I know we
have a healthy contingent of older cars. I know that
many have had many Porsches over the
years (some still do) and have first-hand
experience with these cars even if they
do not have one currently.
I am a classic owner and I’m
relatively new to the brand. I’ve always
kept up with the latest and greatest 911s
through the pages of Car and Driver,
but for some reason I got hooked on the
old ones. My previous “classic” cars
were motivated by fiscal responsibility.
While they would technically qualify
as antique cars today, I can assure you
they are not collectible today or any
day. But don’t think I picked Porsche
because they were collectible.
What I think Clarkson and crew
are missing is the joy of having fun on
It’s hard enough to find a place to wring
out a 33-year-old turbo and not scare little
children. I can only imagine what I’d do with
700 horsepower on the way to the grocery store.
Chances are I’d only be doing it once.
To me there is value in doing things yourself, whether
that is troubleshooting the vacuum system or keeping
the brakes from locking up. Why does anyone bother to
open the hood of a modern car? I remember a comedian
joking about the chances of opening your hood only to
find a big on/off switch under there. We keep taking
steps in that direction, don’t we?
Anyway, my experience with “old” Porsches thus far
is that they don’t need much anyway. The ‘87 Carrera
pictured has needed oil, air filters, tires, and a clutch
after 76,000 miles and it’s still bank vault solid. I doubt
any car I’ve ever owned could say that -- even the
Hondas. I’m not saying that old Porsches are the best
cars in the world (they are, incidentally) I’m just saying
that somebody knew what they were doing and cost
savings did not get in the way of executing their vision.
That’s part of what gives these cars their mystique.
They aren’t flashy. They aren’t trendy. They do what
they do and they do it well. As long as you don’t want
to be cool during the summer. But who needs that really?
It doesn’t make it faster, or handle any better. These cars
are just a joy to drive. The parts work together, mostly.
And it’s kind of a kick to see someone look for the
ignition on the right side of the wheel. What they lack in
power massaging memory seats, they more than make
up for in auditory and olfactory bliss. Take that Tesla.
Old Porsches are still my favorite cars to drive. I
never look in the garage and think, I really need to take
that SUV out for a drive and clear my head. There is
nothing better than sitting down low, turning the key
and listening to flat six fire up. An air-cooled flat six.
No, there is one thing. Sitting down low with a chorus
of Porsches nearing redline. Truly driving friendships.

Member Moment - 30th PCA Anniversary, February 2019
Two 1982 930’s (5 apart on serial #’s) and a 1988 930 Cab.
Most memorable Maverick or PCA event
1986 event at TWS in my 930 when I lost the brakes coming into the buttonhook. I had to throw
it sideways to scrub off speed, narrowly missing the armco. My first lesson in always replacing
brake fluid with new high temp before races.
Best thing about Porsche ownership
PCA events at the track! Also 930’s finally appreciating to decent levels! I’ve owned them since
1986 and 1990.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
One year ago on these pages I made my editorial
debut if you will. It began with equal parts excitement
and trepidation. That has since cleared up and looking
back now, I can almost remember what it was like to not
have a reoccurring 15th of the month deadline. I can also
remember the first Maverick event that I attended and
wondering what I had gotten myself into. It turns out I
had gotten myself into a great situation for once. Friendly
people, and as the Grinch would say: oh the noise, the
noise noise, noise, noise.
I celebrated my 5 year anniversary last year and prior to
agreeing to be the next editor, I was a part-time member.
I would attend 3-4 events a year that mostly centered on
driving the car, and not talking to the people. Luckily that’s
allowed, but I found that they also encourage the talking
if you’re so inclined. You can probably see where this is
going. It’s our annual fund raising drive and if you just call
the number on your screen, one of our operators will be
happy to chat you up. If only it were that easy. No, what
I’m attempting to do is get you excited about volunteering.
I don’t have a surprise celebrity guest or a tote bag, but
I can tell you that you’ll get to know some great people
and find a way to spend all that extra time that you have.
And there’s also the corporate jet. (There is no corporate jet) Kidding
aside, if you’ve ever thought about volunteering, or you
really do have some free time, it’s a great thing.
Did you know that you can volunteer without committing
to a board member position? It’s true! Drive leaders, corner
workers, event check-in, photographers no experience
necessary. Well, there is some experience necessary, but if
you’ve made it this far, I think you can probably manage. I
know our event chairs are always looking for someone to
share their experiences or photos of their events. What I’m
saying is that if you have an interest, we’ll find a spot for
you. Just think about the fame and notoriety you’ll garner
with your friends and family and event fellow members at
the next Maverick event.
I have really enjoyed being your editor for the past 12
issues, and look forward to continuing. I’ve gotten a lot
out of being a more active member of
the club, and if you’re not I think you
might too. Give it some thought, contact
Landon Stogner our volunteer chair
or check the website to sign up. I look
forward to seeing you at an upcoming.
It’ll be fun. Enjoy the drive!
