SPROCKETS: Hit the road!
by David Robertson, Region President
July is the month when many Maverick members
head off to the National PCA Parade. This is a yearly
event where thousands of PCA members gather together
for a week of events, including driving tours, autocross,
banquets, exploring the local area, and most of all,
getting to know other PCA members from every part of
the country. Porsche AG always has a big presence, and
always unveils a special vehicle for the first time at the
event. If you haven’t been to a PCA Parade you need to
attend one soon!
I would like to talk a little bit about one of the
Maverick Region’s most prolific members, spanning
just about the entire history of the club. Charlie Davis
recently passed away, shortly after celebrating his 50th
year as a member of the Maverick Region. During
those 50 years he was President of the Maverick
Region twice, Vice President twice, and Secretary twice.
Charlie has left a permanent imprint on our
club, and his legacy lives on in many ways
that most of us don’t even realize. Thank
you, Charlie, for 50 years of volunteering
your enthusiasm and time to the Maverick
Region and National PCA. We will miss you.
Charlie was a two-time recipient of the Selcer Award
(Maverick Region’s highest recognition) and National
PCA Zone Rep for four years. He served on an untold
number of committees, both on a regional and national
level, and helped organize countless events. As our club
photographer for many years, Charlie was at just about
every event on the schedule with camera in hand.
In my time as a member of the Maverick Executive
Council I have had the opportunity to work with
Charlie on many projects, and the honor to get to know
him and his wife Teri (also a very active member of our
club for many years) on a personal level.
MAV OF THE MONTH:
Kurt Scaggs joined our Maverick Region in August of 2013, along with his 1987
Guards Red 911 Carrera. He started by participating in our region driving events,
and by 2016, Kurt had volunteered for a major role in the production of Slipstream
and our social media sites as the event ad designer. Kurt also created many of our
most iconic poster and decal designs, such as the 55th anniversary Founders’ Day
event and the Mavs & Mochas logo. In April of 2018, Kurt stepped up to one of
our most labor-intensive volunteer positions, that of Editor of Slipstream, and has
been at the helm of each issue since then. Kurt, along with his wife Melissa and son
Wilson, actively attend our region social events, while Kurt continues to participate
in driving events as often as possible. Kurt expanded his classic Porsche stable
about nine months ago by adding a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo to his garage. Thank
you Kurt for all of the work you do each month producing Slipstream!

May Mavs & Mochas Recap
by Bill Kruder, Mavs & Mochas Chair
photos provided by Paul Moseley
Once again, what would a Saturday be
without rain? You guessed it - it poured the
entire morning. As Debi and I drove over to
Fort Worth for Mavs & Mochas that morning,
more than a few times we looked at each
other and questioned, “what are we doing
out in this?”
But as they say, the show
must go on, and we knew
Neiman Marcus at Shops
at Clearfork were pulling
out all the stops to make it
an unprecedented morning!
They had their entire team
ready for us with plenty of
fresh coffee, Bloody Marys
and mimosas, and some
excellent breakfast bites.
And if the spread of drinks
and bites was not enough,
they had incredible door
prizes, and several of our
members went home with
great gifts. Fair to say,
despite the weather, no one
was disappointed, with some
35 cars and 50 members enjoying great friendships,
shopping, and wandering through one of the most
beautiful stores in DFW.
The spread at Neiman Marcus, Shops of Clearfork
But let me not forget to mention the car we were
celebrating this month. Frank Briggs’ 1995 Aventurine
Green 993 had just rolled 200,000 miles. For those of
you who don’t know the car or Frank, it’s safe to say
he drives the wheels off it. I might suggest you go back
and read the Coffee, Cars & Conversation article in the
June issue of Slipstream (https://tinyurl.com/y6klesyf)
to learn more of where this car and driver have been
over the last 200,000 miles.
Lastly, a big thanks to Park Place Porsche, Neiman
Marcus, and the volunteers who made this one of the best
events of the year . . . despite the rain.

Snowy Road Trip in a 356
by Rose Gohlke
photo provided by author
My husband Mark and I just returned from a 1700 mile road
trip in our 1964 356. Before this, the furthest we’d gone in it was
about 100 miles on one of the tours with the club. This time we
went to Durango, CO for a wedding, taking the scenic route the
whole way. It was quite an adventure!
I was thankful for the new full-sized spare that we had to use
the first night. (My husband had ordered the tire and had to wait
a week to receive it because of the special size that is not popular
anymore.) He had never used the original jack before and it took
a while to figure out how to get the car back on the ground. I
was so happy that we were able to get a
replacement spare the next morning at
the tire store next to our hotel that just
happened to have the exact same tire!
It was a beautiful surprise to find
ourselves in a winter wonderland on
May 9 in northern New Mexico and I
was appreciative of the working
heater. And on the way back through
Texas I was thankful for the wing
window air-conditioning! Mark and Rose stop for a scenic, snowy shot in their ‘64 356.
Patriot Paws in Action!
by Alan Nusbaum

It’s always difficult to know how
a certain event or experience will
impact your life. For my son Sam
and me, the Maverick Region PCA
Patriot Paws visit in March became
much more than a one-time event.
Not really knowing what to expect
when the event announcement was
made, Sam and I signed up. We love
dogs and we love Porsches!
What we saw that day was truly
amazing and inspiring. Before we
left their facility, we were really
excited about what we had seen,
and both agreed that the Patriot
Paws mission aligned with “why
we do what we do” at Raytheon,
where my three children and I work.
Raytheon is a technology and
innovation leader in the aerospace
and defense industry, and one of
the larger employers in North
Texas. Our work helps protect
and support the men and women
in our U.S. military. Many of our
employees are veterans, and after
describing what we had seen, our
veteran employee resource group
shared in our excitement and was
a discussion with Lori, a Q&A
session, a video about their prison
training program, and of course,
Pierce showed off his skills!
At the end of the session, I
announced a $20,000 donation
to Patriot Paws
Service Dogs for
the training of a
Our goal that
day had been to
was a very good first step of what we
intend to be a long-term relationship.
It all stemmed from our Maverick
Region PCA visit in March! Thanks
again to Don Sebert and all those
that organized that great day in
On a final note: Lori
announced that as a part
of our donation, we too
could name a service
dog. The audience voted
for a name from a list of
Raytheon products. The
winning name was . . .
The mission of Patriot Paws is to “train and
provide service dogs of the highest quality
at no cost to disabled American veterans”
in order to “help restore their physical and
on board to support Patriot Paws.
At our McKinney facility on
May 16 we hosted Lori Stevens,
the founder and executive director;
Kristina Longoria, an intern
trainer; and Pierce, a service dog in
training at Patriot Paws. It turned
out be a very special day indeed!
We had a great employee turnout
for the program, which included

of the Patriot
why it’s so
important, how it
and what we can
do to help. We
think this event

I began attending Mavs & Mochas events.
Everyone has always been so warm and
inviting, so I quickly felt very much a part
of the group.

Drivers’ Education Series: Austin Schnell Fest
by Craig Janssen, Chief Driving Coach
photos provided by Renee Hayden
The owners of more than 200
cars converged on the Circuit of The
America (COTA) race track in Austin
for the long weekend of June 7-9 to
spend three days developing their
driving skills. Known as the Austin
Schnell Fest, these High Performance
Driving Education (HPDE) events are
a partnership between the Maverick
Region PCA, Lone Star Region PCA,
Hill Country Region PCA, and the
Lone Star BMW club. The next
Austin Schnell Fest will be held this
fall in September.
It was great fun as we met and
made new friends and got to drive our
cars in the way they were intended to
perform, all while doing it on a race
track designed for safety.
And it was hot. Like almost record
temperatures for June in Texas hot.
We drank lots of water and sought
refuge between driving sessions in
the plentiful air-conditioned spaces at
COTA. It’s really a fantastic facility.
Stories of gifted driving
and wonderful saves
abounded over beer and
pizza at the end of each
day. In reality, we were all
humbled as we realized
how much there is to learn
to be a good driver, and
how much performance
there is to be explored in
our Porsche cars.
An amazing weekend with
incredible cars and interesting
people! We hope you will join us
for a future HPDE. Please check
back next month for more pictures
from this event.
See you at the track!

Remembering Myra Sutton
by Carey Spreen, as told by Jerry Sutton
photos provided by Jerry Sutton and Fran Ussery
On April 14, 2019, Myra Broussard Sutton passed away,
leaving behind husband Jerry, daughter Aubrey Sutton Skinner
and Aubrey’s husband Michael Skinner, and granddaughter
Sutton Lee Skinner and grandson Sullivan Lloyd Skinner.
Celebrating Myra’s birthday at the Salt Lake City Parade
Jerry Sutton joined Maverick Region PCA in May 1970. He
met Lafayette, Louisiana-born-and-raised Myra Broussard at
a New Year’s Eve party on December 31, 1976, held by a
Methodist Sunday School group. To those who knew them
at the time, that fact could have been considered unexpected,
given that Myra was a “Roamin’ Catholic” and Jerry was
a “Whiskey-palian.” Perhaps those self-styled descriptions
were what brought them together! Jerry added Myra as his
affiliate PCA member upon his next membership renewal in
the spring of 1977.
Myra had come to Dallas after graduating from the
University of Southwestern Louisiana with a Baccalaureate
degree in Music in 1971, getting her Master’s degree at SMU
in 1972. Myra was not what one would call a car person
at that time; when she left Louisiana, her
mother gave her the family car: a 1970
Plymouth Belvedere. As it turned out,
though, that car had a 440 Mopar engine,
complete with six-pack, although at the
time, she neither knew nor cared.
In the summer of 1977, after being
shown the light regarding German
automotive quality, Myra decided that
she needed a new car. She visited Forest
Lane Porsche+Audi, where the salesman
tried to convince her that an Audi Fox
was a fine-driving car, but she disagreed.
She also tried driving a Porsche 924,
which had just been introduced in the US,
but it didn’t quite fit her tall frame. She
ultimately decided on a 1977 Mercedes
240D with a 4-speed manual, which is
parked in their driveway to this day.
At roughly the same time, Jerry decided
to sell his Chevy Nova (which he had
purchased after his 1970 914-6 was
totaled in an accident the previous year) and bought a new
BMW 320i, which (spoiler alert!) turned out to be a poor
substitute for a Porsche.
Anyway, Jerry and Myra attended various Maverick
Region events, one of which was an autocross held at
Greater Southwest Airport, where Jerry assisted with timing
and scoring. As it turned out, Myra became interested in the
sport, and soon heard about a gymkhana (sort of a gimmick
autocross) being put on by the Mercedes-Benz club, also at
Greater Southwest Airport. She promptly entered the event
in her 240D, where she beat most of the other competitors.
Thus began her longstanding enthusiasm for autocrossing,
both with the M-B Club and the Porsche Club.
Myra and Jerry were married in February of 1979, and
continued to be regulars at PCA autocrosses, with Myra in
her 240D and Jerry in his 320i, and later in a 1973 914 2.0.
In early 1982, Myra began getting sick in the morning, and
after seeing her doctor, learned that she was pregnant. Jerry
hung pink and blue ribbons on the garage door to celebrate
the good news.
Later that year, they were
helping with timing and scoring
at one of Maverick Region’s
Time Trial events, which were
held in those days at Oak Hill
Raceway near Henderson, TX.
While at the event, Myra had
the occasion to sit in an early
911, and took an immediate
liking to it.
As luck would have it, one of
the competitors at the event, Bill
Lusk, from Longhorn Region in
San Antonio, had a 1973-1/2
911T that he was looking to sell.
In June of 1982, Jerry and Myra
drove the 320i to Bill’s home
in San Antonio, bought the
911T, and drove it home, with
Myra in the air-conditioned
BMW and Jerry in the Porsche.
They got back to Dallas in time
to attend a Maverick dinner
meeting and showed off their
To their delight, their daughter
Aubrey was born that August.
At another Maverick dinner
meeting later that year, Teri Davis presented a slide show
about the 1982 Porsche Parade, which had taken place in
Reno, NV that summer. Myra immediately asked Jerry,
“What’s a ‘Parade’?” The answer eventually led to the
Suttons (all three of them) attending the 1983 Parade at Lake
of the Ozarks, MO. Fortuitously, Jerry’s parents were living
in Joplin, MO at the time, which made it an easy decision for
the new family to attend the Parade, visiting Jerry’s parents
on the way up and back. However, as anyone who has taken
an extended trip in a 911 knows, there’s not a lot of room
for luggage, especially with an infant on board, so creative
packing is the key. (See page

Myra was a “Roamin’ Catholic” and Jerry was a enjoying every run. Little
did they know that this
would begin an unbroken
36-year tradition of Parade
attendance. Over the years,
Myra and Jerry always looked
forward to seeing old PCA
friends and making new ones.
They competed in three of
the four Parade competitions
(TSD Rally, Autocross,
and Technical Quiz) and
continued to autocross and
rally every year after the
mid-1990s. Myra was also a
member of the PCA National
Membership Committee for
several years, and served as
Myra and Jerry at the Keystone Colorado Parade with the 911T the chairperson in the early
1990s. Jerry and Myra also
were the co-recipients of Maverick Region’s Selcer Award in
1986, and PCA recognized all three Suttons as Family of the
Year in 1995.
Myra’s first Porsche
Parade autocross class win
(but certainly not her last)
was fittingly at the D/FW
Parade in 1987. After that
Parade, Maverick Region
member extraordinaire Linda
Bambina, who was on the

Myra and Jerry in a dance competition
Parade Committee that year, organized several dance lessons
for a few couples who were also on the Parade Committee,
including Myra and Jerry. As the lessons went on, most of the
rest of the couples dropped out, but the Suttons continued,
enjoying it immensely. In fact, they joined a club for dance
couples and remained active, attending and competing in
several formal dance contests each year until just recently.
Another of Myra’s passions was for dogs of the breed
known as the American Eskimo. In about 2004, she began
attending AKC dog shows, and a couple of years later
she was showing her purebred American Eskimo and
winning, including Best of Show trophies. She enjoyed
showing her dogs (including “Fluff” and “Sassy Cajun”)
for many years afterwards.
After the trip home from the 2007 Parade, Myra
became extremely exhausted. By that time, they already
knew that she suffered from a heart condition known
as Marfan syndrome, one of the symptoms of which is
mitral valve leakage. At that time she underwent surgery
to have her mitral valve repaired. About a year later
she was diagnosed with Liposarcoma, which, if caught
early, can be successfully treated. She underwent four
major surgeries since that time, in addition to radiation
and chemotherapy treatments, but the disease eventually
returned each time.
Nevertheless, for the last ten years or so, they have always
arrived early at each Parade, driving their Cayenne (with
manual transmission!) and have volunteered at Check-In,
during which all Parade entrants confirm that they have
registered for various events. Myra and Jerry typically
handed out the Parade Goodie Bags, so they got to meet just
about everyone registered for each Parade. In case you’re
wondering, Jerry plans to attend the Boca Raton Parade this
year to once again take on the role of Concours judge.
We’ll miss Myra’s ever-present smile whenever and
wherever Maverick Region folks gather, and we hope that
this story has helped you to know her better!

Maverick Marktpreis: 964 Carrera 2by Peter Wen
A new flat-six engine. Coil spring suspension. Power
steering. Air conditioning. Automatic electric rear
spoiler. This standard equipment list reads like it belongs
to a late model Porsche, right? Well, actually, it’s from
a 30-year-old 911, aka the 964. When the 964 was
introduced in 1989, it marked the end of production on
the original 911 platform. With airbags and anti-lock
brakes, the 911 had finally entered the modern age.
According to Porsche, the 964 contained 85% new parts
compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. Torsion
bar suspension was replaced with high performance coil
springs and shock absorbers. There were many firsts
offered in a 964, including all-wheel drive and automatic
transmission. With its improved aerodynamics and the
new 3.6L 247-bhp flat-six engine, the 964 can spring
0-60 in a very respectable 5.2 seconds. It was available
in the Coupé, Targa, and Cabriolet body designs.
With less than 37,000 produced, there are fewer 964
911s than the second-gen G-body series that before it
and the 993-gen that came after it. Limited editions such
as the ’92-’93 America Roadster, ’93-’94 Speedster, and
the ’93 RS America are highly valued collectibles.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by author
I must be honest: I almost missed
the opportunity to meet this couple.
I have said hello to them more than
once, usually at Mayo Performance,
admiring one of their 914s and
moving on. I think it was at a Mavs
& Mochas that Linda Bambina, yes
that Linda, came rushing up and
gave me a hug and said “you have
got to talk to this couple that own a
few 914s.” She went on about all the
fun they have had, and
the stories they could tell
. . . all about or involving
So here is the
next in my series of
“conversations” I would
like to share with you:
Betty and Clay Perrine,
members since 2002,
Owners 1974 914, 1973 914,
and 1970 914/6 (Factory Six)
Bill Kruder: So where are
you two from?
Clay Perrine: I was born
here then moved to Youngstown,
Ohio. My dad was an engineer with
GM. Then we moved back when I
was 16 to Arlington and went to
high school, graduating from L. D.
Bell High School in Hurst in 1979.
Betty Perrine: I was born in New
Orleans, but we moved around a
lot. My dad was an insurance exec
moving us from Mississippi, Texas,
New Jersey, Kentucky, and Canada.
We moved back to Texas (Plano)
when I was 12. I went to what is
now Plano Senior High.
BK: How did you two meet?
CP: We met in 1985 at an SCCA
Autocross at Fair Park in Dallas. I
was out there with my ‘79 924.
BP: Yes, it was at an Autocross. I
had my ‘74 914 out there. I was
taping the numbers on my car and
this guy came over to check the
car out. I was hoping he would go
away actually (laughing), as I was
really nervous about the day.
CP: It’s true - I gave her my number.
BP: And yes, I called him (smiling).
CP: We dated for about three years,
kind of long distance, as I lived
in Bedford and Betty was living
in Plano. It was over a 40-mile
commute, and let me tell you, in the
mid ‘80s the roads were not what
Okteenerfest 2014, Igor and Frody on Tail of the Dragon
they are today, so it was a haul;
SH121 was a two-lane road.
BK: So how did the Autocross go?
CP: She beat me by about two
seconds, and she still beats me
BK: Clay, I heard you were pretty
quick in a straight line in non-
Porsches in your youth?
CP: True. Not many know I had my
NHRA (drag racing) license when I
was 18 and I drove professionally
for several years.
BK: Where did your interest in cars
BP: Both our dads were car guys;
certainly Clay’s more than mine.
BK: So Betty, how did you get into
this whole Porsche world?
BP: When I was a kid I read this
book called “The Red Car.” It was
about a sixteen-year-old boy who
finds a 1948 red MG TC roadster
that is wrecked and decides he
needs to bring it back to life. Guess
that kind of stuck with me so I went
looking for an MG.
BK: So you started with a MG?
BP: Well no, I had found one, but
when I got there it was gone. The
next place I tried, a guy
showed me this orange
914 he had. Well my
first impression was
“heck no, I don’t even
like orange cars” and
I didn’t even really
know much about
914s. So he tells me to
sit in and take it out.
Well I did, and made
a right turn out of the
lot; I knew right then
I had to have it! One
right turn and 34 years
later, I still love it.
BK: Clay, how did you get started?
CP: Certainly, it was by chance. I
grew up around old classic Chevys;
matter of fact I drove a 1931 Chevy
to my high school prom. One day I
was at a friend’s, and in his parking
lot there was 924. I was kind of
looking for a car and thought it
would be cool to own a Porsche.
This was, I think, in 1985.
BK: I understand you name your cars?
BP: It’s true! Not only do we name
them but they have a theme.
CP: We always loved the movie
“Young Frankenstein,” or as
Gene Wilder would always say,
“Fronkonsteen,” so we named them:
the ‘74 is Froderick or Frody, the ‘73
is Igor (pronounced EYE-gor), and
our ‘95 BMW is Inga.
BP: The exception is our ’70, which
is Elwood, because he was named
before he became ours.
BK: I have heard that you have a couple stories that involve
bringing the 914 community together to make someone’s day
a bit brighter?
CP: True enough; we believe in paying it forward or treating
someone like how you would like to be treated. When we
were starting out, people helped us out, and now it’s our turn;
we have bins and shelves of 914 parts that we may never use.
BP: So back in ‘95-’96, Clay was actively on Rennlist; when it
started it was more of just sending emails. This guy “Mike”
emailed, saying he once had a white 914 and missed it dearly
but was not in a position to buy one again.
CP: Well as luck would have it, we found a white ‘75 for $300.
Let’s just say it needed work, but actually was a pretty sound
car. So we bought the car and started to email on Rennlist
what parts we needed, and people started sending parts to us.
BP: Clay had the idea that we should save the return address
stickers and attach them under the hood so that “Mike”
could see how many people were involved in this six-month
CP: We had kept “Mike’s” wife in the loop of what we were
doing, so when we wrapped up the project, we loaded the ‘75
on a trailer to Tennessee.
BK: And the other?
CP: We always call this one the story of “Buttercup.”
BP: Thru 914world.com a woman had posted that she
had a 914 that was in pieces; it was her brother’s, who
had recently passed away.
CP: Aftering hearing the story, a bunch of us 914 guys
got together, donated parts, and we all flew or drove to
Kansas and over a weekend we reassembled and had
the car roadworthy once again.
BK: Tell me about the ‘74, what is known to us as, the
CP: Ahh yes, that would be the day I was driving, and
Betty was the passenger. We were driving on 360 in
Arlington when she looked back and saw that the car
was on fire!
BP: We managed to pull over safely; the Fire Department
extinguished the car before it was completely destroyed.
CP: We had it towed away and it sat in storage for seven
years before we ever got around to bringing it back to life.
BK: And for the record this is the car they drove to meet
me for this conversation! Truly a classic, patina and all.
So . . . as I always say, what if? I could have missed this
couple, but thanks to Linda’s nudge, we captured their
story. And how fitting - it’s a story of 914 ownership as
we celebrate its 50th anniversary. I will say this is a
story of driving friendships.

It’s New Car Time: Part 1
by Robert Turner
It’s new car time in the Turner household. Yes! To be
frank, I’m always car shopping. It’s kind of a hobby, you
know – of the vocational kind. Meaning that if the right
combination of timing, available budget, and spousal
approval all happen to coincide, then a car purchase is
eminent. Take this most recent round. It started a little
over a year ago. My race car was on the chopping block.
First there was a brush with the Armco crash barrier at
a COTA race track (Circuit of the Americas; FYI, the
Austin TX track that hosts the US Formula 1 Grand
Prix). Then there was the motor meltdown at Hallett’s
great regional track in OK. I had the car body refreshed
and found a new racing motor. But after that expense,
my long-suffering wife instructed me to cut my losses
and retire from track events. OK. Sold the race car, sold
the trailer and most of the racing equipment. On my
birthday, no less. As the race car disappeared down the
road, heading to its new home in south Florida, my wife
turned to me and said, “This is the best birthday ever!”
Wait, our birthdays are three months apart! Oh,
right. She meant it was the best birthday she’d ever
celebrated with me, the former race car/track event
aficionado. She did take me out for a nice birthday
dinner. I remember consuming several decent bourbons
to drown the sorrow of being out of the race car/track
event business. But really, after seventeen years, it was
time to cut my losses and move on. Then, about the
third bourbon I said,
“Maybe I should add up all I’ve spent
on track cars over the years.” My lovely
wife put her hand on my arm and said,
“Maybe you shouldn’t.”
“OK,” I agreed through the bourbon buzz.
But I get ahead of myself. In anticipation of selling the
race car, I managed to score a very nice 2002 Boxster S
in my favorite Porsche color: Speed Yellow. This was my
second Speed Yellow Boxster S. The first one? Another
story. The new one had low miles and rare options:
M030 sports suspension, factory Speedhumps and
factory-painted center console in Speed Yellow. It was
a keeper. But anyone who really knows me understands
that no car is ever a keeper. It’s potentially always on
the chopping block – waiting to get kicked to the curb
in favor of something newer or better.
I did briefly think this one was different. It was
more-or-less perfect. Rare options combined with low
mileage and amazing paint and bodywork meant that
this car (which we dubbed Lemonhead or LMNHED
on the PCA license plate), was destined for concours
and touring duty. It placed third in a regional concours
and was an amazing companion when we drove to
PCA Palooza. Yep, LMNHED was gonna hang around
the Turner household for a long time.
The purchase happened during the Christmas
holiday season when I was homebound for several
weeks. My usual work mode involves lots of business
travel, sometimes four to six weeks in a row. Very
small joke: when people ask me where I’m based, I
point to the sky and say, “On an American Airlines
flight flying overhead right now!” My wife knows
I’m dangerous when not traveling. It means I have
more time in the evening to spend on, you guessed
it – car shopping!
And so it happened. I frequently use an app to search
Craigslist nationwide. I use it to look for something
uncommon – like a Speed Yellow Boxster S. Which is
how I found LMNHED. I reached out to the owner,
who lived in Phoenix, maybe an hour after he’d posted
it. He was surprised to receive a response so quickly.
The photos were not very good, so I asked him for
some specific shots to help me make sure this really
was a rare car in great condition. I asked for shots of
the wheels, the sticker under the hood, certain interior
shots, and both the front and back of the title.
I looked at the photos when they came in, as well
as CarFax and the factory build sheet. The car was a
gem. I called him back and asked if he’d take a lower
price, but he was firm. Hey, nothing ventured, nothing
gained. I told him I’d FedEx a check for half the agreed
price to hold the car and I’d bring the balance when I
flew into Phoenix to pick it up. I asked him to take the
ad down from Craigslist. When I picked the car up, he
told me he should have charged more. In the couple of
hours the ad was still active, he got maybe six or seven
calls. Yep, he probably could have asked for more and
got it. But he was a man of his word. I picked the car
up in Phoenix, pointed it east and drove home.
I’ve had the car for a year now and am home from
the road again. Believe it or not, I’m looking for cars.
Some things never change.

35 Years Doing What We Love.
Surprise!: A Summer Gimmick/Poker Rally
by Jay Lynch
The objective of a rally is to follow a course from point
to point, usually on public roads, to the precise detail
specified in the rules – an opportunity for Driver and
Navigator to share the motoring experience. Rallies can
be competitive (time-speed-distance), dictating a certain
time schedule for checkpoints along the way, or Gimmick,
which are not timed, may include a theme, and may
require other skills such as solving a puzzle or looking for
obscure reference points. As with any Rally the challenge
is to discover and enjoy the intended country drive. For
the July 27th Rally starting at Grapevine Porsche, your
Rallymeisters have added a series of 5 check points where
participants will draw playing cards to create a poker hand.
At the finish, where food and beverages are available, 1st,
2nd, and 3rd place awards will be given based upon the
team’s ability to complete the route, answer questions
correctly and identify objects. Plus a special award will be
given for the winning poker hand.
The Rally Co-Chairs are Don Sebert and George
Luxbacher. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration opens July 1st.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Tangent alert. If you came here for a pithy rebuke of
electric cars, or a semi-relatable story about shade tree
auto mechanics, I have some sad news for you. If instead,
you are reading this because you are the type that reads
magazines cover to cover and you do the honorable thing
and read the musings printed here in spite of my attempts
at above, thank you in advance.
In light of the joker that was named Mav of the Month,
I feel the need to applaud those that really help keep this
publication in your mailboxes. I am incredibly grateful for
our board members and volunteers. I compelled to tell you
about a few of them and ask for your help.
First and foremost, Carey Spreen keeps me honest and
does the proof reading, grammar and editing of the stories.
Without his help, you’d get your copy of Slipstream on
the 29th of the month. A former editor himself, he is an
invaluable resource that I could not do without. I cannot
say thank you enough Carey.
You’ll most likely recognize Bill Kruder from planning,
running or sometimes just enjoying our many great events.
He’s everywhere, usually with a cigar and a big floppy hat.
But he’s also a monthly contributor taking time each month
to get to know our members and tell their story. If you’ve ever
spoken to him, you’ll know why he’s tailor made for this type
of thing. Thanks Bill!
If you enjoy Maverick Marktpreis, please let Peter Wen
know about it. I know I always look forward to seeing what
model he’s highlighting for the coming month and keeping my
collector mind racing. Peter, my wife thanks you too.
David Tierney is our ad designer and he is responsible for
the wonderful club ads that you see each month in Slipstream
and on the web keeping us all informed about the upcoming
events with style. Thanks David!
We’ve got so many great photographers and contributors
that I almost never run out of things to bring you each month.
Almost. Now for the telethon moment. If you’ve taken a drive,
trip or ill-fated stab at refreshing your ride and think others
might enjoy hearing about it, I’ve got a tip for you. They would.
Or if you’ve been shooting photos at an event or just like taking
pictures in your driveway and are particularly proud of some
of them, sent them in. I know I would love to hear about a
garage story gone right for a change. Enjoy the drive.
