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

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.

Frank Briggs and Co. marking a personal milestone in Porsche passion.

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

photo provided by author

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

from my

organization

to Patriot Paws

Service Dogs for

the training of a

service dog.

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

Rockwall.

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 . . .

Maverick!

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

emotional independence.”

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

create a better

understanding

of the Patriot

Paws mission:

why it’s so

important, how it

is accomplished,

and what we can

do to help. We

think this event

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

16 July


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

new acquisition.

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

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

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!

We’ll give

you an

assist on

your future

goals.

the most out of retirement.

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

owning 914s.

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

(laughing).

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

come from?

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.

20 July


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

restoration project.

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

“incident”?

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.

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 rally@mavpca.org

Registration opens July 1st.

Most memorable Maverick or PCA event

My first Porsche Parade.

Best thing about Porsche ownership

As a teenager in Chicago, I fell in love with Porsches. It was a Guard Red 911 Targa, that’s the one.

I have owned my 911 Carrera Targa for over 30 years. It still gets thumbs up every drive.

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.
