The Porsche Parade was quite an event this year for
the Maverick Region. As you may have heard, our region
received five national awards: Region of the Year, Greatest
Actual Membership Growth, Best Website, Best Newsletter
in class, and Best Newsletter Cover.
This national recognition is a direct result of the
enthusiasm and dedication of our 3000-plus primary and
associate members and volunteers. This is only the second
time in the history of our region that we have been recognized
as Region of the Year. The membership award is also a big
honor; this award is given to the region with the largest
membership increase in all of North America in 2018.
I also want to congratulate Bill Orr for his great work on
our website, resulting in the National Website Award. This

The quality of Slipstream only gets better every year, and
this is reflected in both the First Place in Class VI (regions
over 1,650 members) and the Best Newsletter Cover award.
Congratulations to Kurt Scaggs and Jim Hirsch! Putting the

MAV OF THE MONTH:
Deborah has been the Maverick Region Treasurer for the last two years. She is a great
example of a member that has brought her deep career experience into a role that has a
positive impact on the Maverick Region. Deborah worked to better identify our expenses
and revenue, and took the accounting system online to make it more user friendly and
available for oversight. Due to a move to Colorado, Deborah had to resign as the Region
Treasurer, but worked very hard to make a seamless and conscientious transition to our
interim Treasurer. Thank you, Deborah, for all of your work to make the Maverick
Region more efficient, and enjoy your new home in beautiful Colorado!

Rust Belt Road Trip
by Jim Hirsch
photos provided by author
“I want you to attend the Indy
500 with us this year.” When Mike
O’Hare uttered those words back
in October of 2018 the wheels were
literally set in motion for this latest
chapter in our series of long road
trips that began with my retirement
in December of 2013.
day road trip. This time
we would be driving
Sharon’s new Mazda
CX-5 instead of the
981 Boxster S to have
a car with more than
two seats, so we could
offer to drive groups of
In the midst of a conversation Mike and I were having
about Indy Car racing last fall, I happened to mention
that even though I lived in the Upper Midwest for
43 years, I had never made it over to Indianapolis to
see the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”
For those of you who know Mike
and his generosity, you probably
expected that he would issue an
invitation to attend the race with
him that he has attended dozens of
times over many years. For me, the
invitation came out of the blue, as I
had intended to be just another TV
viewer of the race again this year.
So, I talked with Sharon about
Mike’s offer, and her first words
were “ballpark trip.” You see,
Sharon’s most recent bucket list is
attending baseball games in each
of the 30 MLB ballparks. We were
already up to 17 ballparks visited,
and she quickly mapped out the fact
that we could add four more to the
list on this road trip to Indy if we
simply extended our visit further
east and north through the Rust
Belt. Fortunately for me, she also
agrees to visit automotive interests
at each stop along the way.
Let’s see -- one racetrack and
four ballparks sounded like the best
deal I was going to be able to get, so
the stage was set, and we were more
than ready to take to the roads on
May 23 for the beginning of a 22-
people at some of our
If you recall, the
weather throughout the
South and Midwest had
been pretty much nonstop
rain for much of
May. In fact, on May 22,
parts of Hwy 69 in Oklahoma were
closed due to flooding, right along
our preferred route. Fortunately,
the road was open again the next
morning, and we headed out to our
first stop of Rolla, MO accompanied
by water close to the shoulder of
many roads we traveled.
We were headed to Indy next, but
can never resist a stop along any part
of Route 66, so a quick detour to
Cuba, MO to visit their famous murals
was a must delay. We’d be arriving
in Indianapolis by late afternoon
and getting ready to see the big race.
Mike’s sister lives in Indianapolis and
is a big part of their family tradition
of attending this race each year. She
and her husband were gracious hosts
throughout the entire race weekend
and made us feel welcome to be back
in the Midwest again.
Saturday of race weekend saw
Mike, his son Ian, and me up early
to visit the track before the big
crowds arrived for the actual race
on Sunday. There is no way to
adequately describe the scale of the
Indianapolis Speedway. Nor what
it feels like to be part of 310,000
enthusiastic and knowledgeable
race fans. Nor how an entire
neighborhood, up to a mile and
more away from the track, opens
up their yards to fans to be able to
park and walk to the race. This was
a once in a lifetime experience for
us, thanks to Mike!
Next up: 12 days of travel around
the Rust Belt to see four ballparks
(and games), along with a variety
of automotive points of interest.
Our next stop was Cincinnati,
the original home of professional
aseball. One common theme
among all four cities we ended up
visiting was their local initiatives
to revitalize their downtown areas.
Locating ballparks within the cities
themselves provided focal points
for new residences, restaurants, and
retail. We stayed downtown in each
city and explored what they had to
offer over three days in each stay.
For the auto enthusiast,
Cincinnati offered the American
Sign Museum as our choice. Even if
you have never collected a neon sign
from an old dealership or even a
retail store, you’re sure to find signs
here that you saw in your childhood,
or if you’re a bit younger, have seen
in historical articles!
From Cincinnati, we headed next
to Pittsburgh. PNC Park turned
out to be our favorite ballpark
of the trip. Views of the ballpark
from the city, as well as views from
the ballpark over the river were
equally awesome, and the park itself
feels just right for hosting baseball
games. We took some time to visit
the Carnegie Museums while we
there (among many other things)
and enjoyed a variety of displays
that had ties to auto manufacturers.
Heading north to Cleveland for
our next stop included a stop for
hiking in the Cuyahoga National
Forest. It’s a nice break to stretch
your legs during these road trips!
Cleveland offered a selection of
interesting restaurants and retail
stores in their East 4th Street
destination. For our automotive
fix, we visited the Crawford Auto
Aviation Collection. This eclectic
collection includes almost 200
historic vehicles. We ended up
seeing three of the GM EV1 electric
vehicles on this road trip, including
one in this collection.
The final stop of the ballpark
portion of the road trip was Detroit.
Yes, there are many options for auto
enthusiasts to visit while in Detroit
and we had to make some hard
choices. The one place that deserves
a day-long (or more) visit is The
Henry Ford: Museum, Greenfield
Village, and Rouge Factory. In a
scale similar to what we experienced
at the Indianapolis Speedway, The
Henry Ford complex is utterly
massive and a challenge to visit each
display and not miss something.
The “exploded” Model T certainly
caught my eye in terms of the
number of components used for this
early production line process.
The trip back towards Texas
included some of the most interesting
driving of our travel. Along the way
to visit my sister in Iowa City, we
had to stop at the World’s Largest
Truck Stop in Walcott, IA. Yep,
it makes Buc-ee’s look like small
potatoes, from the full-size semi
parked inside to the multi-level
shopping and restaurant experience
– all under a single roof. The most
notable view while driving through
Illinois and Iowa, however, was the
very visible fact that no corn had
been planted. The heavy rains had
either kept farmers from being able
to work in their fields or had washed
away the early plantings that had
gotten into the ground. Not a single
stalk of corn was visible anywhere.
We even planned a detour on
the way back to Texas to spend
some time in and around Eureka
Springs. Those of you who travel
on the backroads and have been to
the PCA (Porsche) Palooza know
how great the roads are north of
Eureka Springs in Missouri as well
as east, south, and west of ES while
in Arkansas. We took the time to
drive those over a few days in the
“ZoomZoom” Mazda CX-5. No,
it’s not the same as having the top
down and in sport mode in the
Boxster S but it’s a still a fun drive
on roads we know well, such as the
Pig Trail. The final day, day 22, saw
an easy drive back to Texas.
While this may have been a
relatively small number of miles
traveled compared with our typical
road trips in the Porsche, the number
of days on the road, along with the
wide variety of stops and sights
along the way, made this travel
through the Rust Belt another great
road trip memory.
Summer Poker Road Rallye Recap
by Carey Spreen
First things first: you may be wondering what a
Poker Rally is. Think of a mobile poker game, where
the players (a driver and navigator team) are all driving
a specified route instead of sitting at a table. The dealers
are located somewhere along the route at three locations
unknown to the players. As the players find each dealer
location, they draw a playing card and then give it right
back, noting what the card was (for example, the two
photos by Tom Martin
time at one-minute intervals. The only down side to this
is that if you are car number 60, you don’t get to start
until about an hour after the first car has started. So if
car numbers are given out as competitors arrive, which
is typical for Maverick Region rallies, it pays to arrive
early! Fortunately, teams that had higher car numbers
were at least able to browse the latest offerings in the
Porsche Grapevine showroom while they waited!
of diamonds). The players also draw cards at the start
and end points of the route, with each player ending up
with a five-card hand. The winner, of course, has the
best poker hand.
But using mere poker hands to determine a winner
leaves too much to chance and not enough to skill,
so to make things more interesting, why not throw in
some questions that can only be answered from signs
and landmarks along the route? That was the idea that
Rallymeisters Jay Lynch, Karen and Warren Horgan,
Ed Martelle, and Jennifer Gerobode came up with for
Maverick Region’s latest gimmick rally.
The route this time began at Porsche Grapevine
and ended at Eagles Canyon Raceway, about 15
minutes northeast of Decatur. Upon arrival at Porsche
Grapevine, we all signed the insurance waiver, picked
up the route instructions, and drew our first playing
card. Since rallies are competitive events (but not races,
because speed is not a factor), releasing all competitors
at once might encourage rally teams to follow each
other instead of following the route instructions. The
traditional way to avoid this is to release one car at a
Anyway, with the General Instructions, the route
instructions, our wristbands indicating that we had
paid for the buffet lunch at the destination, and our first
card drawn, we made our way to the start point, zeroed
the trip odometer, and headed for parts unknown.
That zeroing of the odometer was important because
of two reasons: (1) the route instructions contained an
odometer check that allowed each team to determine
how close their odometer readings were to those of
the Rallymeister, as some of the instructions contained
mileages; and (2) if there were tie scores at the end of
the event, the elapsed mileage closest to that of the
Rallymeister determined the tiebreaker.
Embedded within the route instructions were
questions that referenced signs or landmarks along the
route. Most questions were pretty cryptic and could not
have been answered without actually driving the route
and spotting the sign or landmark to which the questions
referred. The questions were only valid until the next
route instruction, so if you didn’t figure a question out,
you either continued on without answering, or doubled
back to look for the answer again. The only penalty in
this case is that your odometer accumulates those extra
miles driven, so it also pays to note the extra miles you
put on while searching, and then subtract them from
your total at the end!
The route took us through two-lane roads west of
the Metroplex that we had never seen, with the scenery
varying from multi-million-dollar homes to horse
ranches to blink-and-you-miss-them towns.
After about 70 miles, the instructions delivered us to
Eagles Canyon Raceway, where we had the opportunity
to get in line for a couple of parade laps on the portion
of the track that was almost complete. We signed
another insurance waiver and added another wristband
to our arms, and then we were off on the track.
To wrap up, Jay Lynch presented the awards to
1st Place: Nick and Shannon Frost
2nd Place: Wayne and Lauren Hutton
3rd Place: Paul and Lisa Barham
Best poker hand: Bob Peipert and Kellie Houghton,
with a Jacks over Queens Full House
Eagles Canyon Raceway has undergone extensive renovation under its new owner Livio Galanti and
his team. The pavement is very smooth and wide, and when it’s done, the track will be 2/10-mile
longer than its original 2.5-mile configuration. Can’t wait to try it out at our upcoming Drivers’
Education events this fall!
After the parade laps, we got in line for the lunch
buffet and found a place to sit in the drivers’ lounge.
Livio welcomed us and gave a brief overview of the
track construction progress.
Overall, it was a fun event, and the mix of
experienced rallyists and newcomers to rallying
enjoyed a scenic drive, an interesting and Porscherelated
destination, and got to use some brain power
along the way. Thanks to Jay, Karen, Warren, Ed,
Jennifer, and of course the team of volunteers that they
assembled, for a fun event!

Primary reason for joining PCA
The community and the cars. I’ve met a
number of members at different events
and they seem like a family.
Porsche Cayman 2018 (I call him Klaus)
I’m really excited about the new Taycan.
Best thing about Porsche ownership
I feel like I’m part of a family. No matter
where I’m at it seems like the Porsche
owners gravitate towards each other –
especially in parking lots for some reason
- based on a sheer love of the car.
I’m a huge soccer fan, also enjoy traveling,
horses, and music. I just got a dog which
takes up a lot of time but so worthwhile.

Garages & Gearheads July Recap: Garages of Texas
by Bill Middleton
photos provided by Author
Being semi-officially a member of the “retired old
curmudgeons club,” and a lifelong gearhead, I can remember
many different forms of shelter I’ve used for working on my
various vehicles. Some of those memories are fond ones, like
having a fully finished and conditioned garage with shop space
in which I fully rebuilt both engine and transmission in my
1976 Datsun 280Z - and others less so, such as resetting loose
ignition points in January, at night, outdoors, in Michigan, in
the dark, by flashlight, in my first car, a 1961 Mercury Comet,
so I could drive to college.
all things – a balcony? Oh, and let’s not forget plenty of wall
space – two stories tall on both sides – for all those posters,
memorabilia items, and pieces of taxidermy that either won’t
fit in the house – or your spouse banned to the attic.
Welcome to the world of purpose-built, architect-designed,
professionally constructed garage spaces – and the brainstorm
of Jack Griffin and Fred Gans.
Now that my jaw is off the floor and reseated in my head,
it’s time to start really taking in the scope and concept of what
this is – a true “man cave” on more steroids than the entire
Enter today’s event, and cue up Handel’s Hallelujah chorus
– but don’t drop the needle just yet (for those who remember
phonographs – for those that don’t, ask someone with white
hair) just have it cued right over the deadband on the record
– and drive into Garages of Texas off Storey Road.
At first one sees what appears to be just a set of large two-story
gray storage buildings, each space fitted with a garage door and
walk-in entry. OK, so far so good. We got here a little early, but
the location is pretty clearly the spot – primarily from the whole
lineup of P-cars all glistening in the sun along the first building.
Once parked, the first stop was pretty obvious: follow the aroma
of fresh coffee and donuts wafting from the reception space!
Now fortified with caffeine and sugar, time to begin what I
came here for: taking photos. I go back outside, start shooting,
wandering around the building corner, following others back
toward the lineup of Porsches that were seen from the road.
Ah – an open bay door, and everyone seems to be headed
in. I take a couple more shots down the row of cars, then turn
into the door, and – OMG!!! (DJ, drop the needle on Handel’s
masterwork please) “Hallelujah!! Hallelujah!! Hallelujah,
If this is a “garage,” there must have been some sort of
transdimensional vortex at the entry, as this surely bears no
relation to my understanding of “garage” – being of rough
dirty concrete floors, no heat or air, dimly lit, a workbench
of old delaminating particle board, and the occasional mouse
for company. No – this has brilliant lighting, mirror finished
floors, genuine millwork cabinetry, a real bathroom, and – of
NFL uses in a season, fully orchestrated around one purpose:
serving the needs and desires of the individual who will use it
as a place to keep their precious toys, work on them, admire
them, share them with friends, have a private office there
amongst his or her treasures – whatever the desire, it’s here.
As I walk around I can see others with similar reactions
– first the jaw agape stares, then the starry-eyed-kid-at-
Christmas look of “I WANT one!!!!”
After a few minutes, we’re told that another space in the
facility is open for viewing, so we head around the other
side – and slam! We go from European sports cars and wood
cabinets to American muscle cars, motorcycles, and life-size
cutouts of Kiss, with the occasional samurai swords on the
walls. It’s like cramming together a Route 66 diner, metal
rock, high school auto shop, and Detroit iron all in one crazy,
colorful place. The owner is gracious, very friendly, highly
conversational, and clearly in heaven in HIS space surrounded
by HIS stuff – how cool is that???
Thoroughly blown away, it’s time to walk the cars on
display outside in the sun and get pics – but clearly, the stars
of this coffee meet are not the cars, but these amazing places
to put them – or should I say, residences where they will rest
in blissful auto heaven until their owners call for them??
After more photos, and wandering about conversing with
friends, it’s time to leave – we’ve got other goings on today in
the area, and time marches on as they say – but this place has
certainly left a lasting impression.
Christmas IS coming, right??

Maverick Marktpreis: GT3
by Peter Wen
How do you make a grown man giggle like a teenage
girl at a school dance? Put him in the driver’s seat of a
GT3, of course! One stab at the go-fast pedal and the
screaming exhaust note of the Flat-Six engine at 8,000
rpm will transform anyone back to the carefree days
of their youth. GT3 is that magic potion, the fountain
Porsche unlocked the magic 20 years ago with the
introduction of the 996-generation GT3. The U.S. market
did not receive one until 2004 with the introduction of
the second-generation 996. The recipe was simple: more
power, more downforce, less weight. Rear seats, spare
tire, sound deadening materials, as well as all other
non-essential parts, were removed. Essential parts were
upgraded to better “stuff” compared to the pedestrian,
non-GT 911. The GT3 was also fitted with an oversized
“taco” wing. It was a street car with a racer’s soul.
Porsche has produced the GT3 for every 911
generation since 996. Contrary to popular belief, GT3s
were not limited production runs. There are plenty fine
examples out there waiting to be experienced. They
have held their value very well over the years. Often,
GT3 is the most expensive model of their respective 911
generation, even more than their Turbo stablemates!

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder

So, this story goes way back to
1996. We had just purchased our
‘82 SC and joined the club. Well like
any “used” car, stuff needs repair,
and I heard about this shop with the
strange name of IXXI Enterprises in
Dallas with this incredible mechanic
named Dusty. I proceeded to take my
car there for service for many years.
I was usually greeted at the counter
by this guy that kind of scared me as
he was so serious, and I’m just this
guy with his first Porsche feeling like
I should maybe be driving a Jetta.
Well as time went on, I came to
depend on him as my personal
expert always willing to walk
me thru what need to be fixed
now and what could wait. Fastforward
to about two years ago:
I was at Mayo and who do I run
into but the serious guy behind
So here is the next in my
series of “conversations” I
would like to share with you:
Barry and Joan Gibbs,
members since 1969 & 1975
Owners, 2011 997.2 Carrera S
meeting Mr. Stanley one day when I
was out on the sales floor. From there
I went on to work for JC Penney when
they had a Dallas Buying Office here
long before they moved to Plano.
BK: Barry where did you go college?
BG: Well I was supposed to go to the
Air Force Academy - Senator Tower
got me an appointment. But I couldn’t
pass the eye exam to be a pilot.
JG: Looking back, this was near
the height of the Vietnam war, so
it probably saved his life (smiling).
homebuilder, as they were starting
a finance arm of the business. But
admittedly I ended up in the auto
parts and repair business.
BK: And how did that happen?
BG: I had a friend who had a
machine shop and we developed
“oil return tubes” that would allow
you to replace them without taking
everything apart. Being a Porsche
guy this really intrigued me, so we
started selling these out of the house.
People would call and leave me a
message on the “phone mate”
and I would fill their orders.
This lasted a couple years, then
we expanded with a catalog of
parts that we would mail out.
Well as was often the case,
people would often ask me if
there was someone who could
do the work. About this time,
we had taken a SBA loan and
had a bought a warehouse over
on Northaven and near Denton
Drive, so I started installing the
parts. Shortly thereafter I hired
Dusty Rhodes from Forest Lane
Porsche+Audi. He worked for
me for over 20 years.
Bill Kruder: So where are you
Barry Gibbs: I’m from right here, the
little town of Fruitdale near I-45
and Loop 12. It’s now part of the
city of Dallas. About the time I went
off to college my parents moved
to Desoto. I had really moved out
already so never lived there but for
a summer home.
Joan Gibbs: Oh I’m a Texan, born in
Sherman and raised in Fort Worth.
I went all through the FWISD and
stayed right there and went to TCU
BK: And what did you get your degree in?
JG: I received mine in Merchandising;
I went on to work for Neiman Marcus
as part of their executive training
program. I had the honor of even
Joan and Barry Gibbs
BG: So, getting the news that I
couldn’t fly, I needed a school to go to
and quick. I signed up at Texas Tech
in Lubbock. I went up there without
ever seeing the campus - probably
a good thing back then (laughing).
Guess it wasn’t all that bad as I stayed
there to get my MBA in Finance.
BK: Interesting as I know both of you
ended up doing pretty different things
than what you went to school for.
JG: Well we had our son Bryan and I
was a stay-home mom for some time.
I did go back and get my teacher’s
certificate and started a 21-year
BG: I did stay in Finance for
a bit working for Centex, the
BK: So was this the start of
BG: It was about 1975. Then in
the early ‘80s, during the S&L
scandal, we bought three 60-foot
lots in Dallas on Cindy Lane, which
we built the building on. We ran a
pretty good business out of there.
Then about five years ago, I decided
to retire and sold to Dave Nuccetelli.
BK: Ok let’s talk about how you two met.
JG: That was in 1972. I was dating
one of Barry’s friends as it turned
out, and we were all at Oktoberfest
at Forest Lane Porsche+Audi. Well,
we met that day and became friends.
BG: Yep and I told him if you don’t
marry her, someone else will. So a few
years of friendship; I think this was
1975. Two club members, Richard
and Nancy Corbeille, were from
New Orleans and they asked if we
would like to meet them there during Thanksgiving and
JG: And we did - the chaplain from Tulane married us at
BK: So let’s talk first cars?
JG: That’s and easy one; a black ‘64 Corvair. I’ve always
had something about quirky cars (laughing).
BG:My first was a ‘56 Ford; I bought it the day I turned
16. Didn’t have it long - I traded it for a ‘64 Ford Fairlane.
BK: I hear there is quite the story on your first Porsche?
BG: That was a ‘69 911T, burgundy over black; I think it
was the lowest horsepower 911 that Porsche ever built.
I was in school, still working on my Master’s, and I had
gone to the dealer in Lubbock and ordered the car with
the help of a friend who worked in the bank. He got me
a 180-day loan; apparently he figured by the time it came
due he would be gone (laughing). We ordered the car,
and about this time there was a dock strike. I think the
car stopped in every port imaginable. I was out running
around one Saturday and I see this transport go by with
VWs and ONE burgundy Porsche; I turned around and
followed that transport to the dealer. They actually let me
back it off the truck!

but she was the FIRST WOMAN to be president in our
So there you have it: some 23 years later we meet again,
this time not about fixing my car but about what has
made our PCA journey so much fun. We call it Driving
And Richard Cross, you missed a great slide show (you
know what I’m talking about.)
BK: And what about that loan?
BG: Well sure enough, the friend is gone and a bank examiner
looks at the notes and they called me and said you need to
show us how you are going to pay this loan. I asked if the
180 days was up and he said no; I replied “I will see you
when it is.” As things turned out, I ended up with a Teacher’s
Assistant job making all of $200 a month, but I was able
to secure that payment.
BK: Now let’s talk about the Club. I understand you both
have been pretty active in the Club?
BG: We were in the early years. We attended four Parades
around the country trying to participate in just about all
the events. I was President of the Maverick Region in 1973
and again in 1978. Keep in mind the club had fewer than
200 members back then. (We now have over 3000.)
JG: I was Secretary in 1976 and 1978, and then in 1983 I

Remembering Charlie Davis
by Carey Spreen and some of Charlie’s friends
On June 7, 2019, 50-year Maverick Region member
Charlie Davis passed away at age 80 due to complications
related to the genetic disease Alpha 1 Antitrypsin
Deficiency. Charlie was a mainstay of the Maverick
Region for decades, having held the offices of Region
Vice President (1972, and Co-VP with wife Teri in
1981), Region President
(1975 and 2000),
Region Secretary (2007-
2008), and Slipstream
Co-Editor (with Don
Charlie was also the
inaugural recipient of
the Richard F. Selcer
Memorial Award in
1976, winning it again
for good measure with
Teri in 1981. Charlie
Charlie with Teri as she won the
1985 Newsletter contest
held the post of Zone 5
Representative from 1985
through 1988. He was also
on the Parade Competition Rules (PCR) Committee for
several years, holding the PCR Committee Chairmanship
from 1982 through 1985. Later in his PCA career he
became the Tenured Historian for Maverick Region.
He was renowned for his photography skills, and was a
member of the Parade Photography staff for many years,
putting on photography classes for Maverick Region as
well. Another of Charlie’s PCA accomplishments was to
come up with the first computer-based autocross timing
system for the 1987 Porsche Parade.
But statistics are of course only part of Charlie’s
legacy. He was often a bigger-than-life character in
the club, with strong ideas and opinions that didn’t
always follow the mainstream, but if you knew him,
you also knew where you stood with him. He was
an engineer by trade, and had a
wealth of knowledge of Porsches,
Porsche history, and PCA history.
Charlie was also an accomplished
autocrosser and time trial driver,
understood the nuances of Time-
Speed-Distance rallies, and was an
experienced Concours d’Elegance
judge as well. Plus he knew his way
around a Technical Quiz! Charlie
was a particular fan of the Porsche
914, and chaired the 914 Special
Winning the inaugural
Selcer Award 1976
Interest Group (SIG) for a number
photos provided by Teri Davis
Here are some remembrances of Charlie from a few
Mavericks who knew him well.
Charlie had done hundreds and hundreds of fantastic
extremely-close-up pictures of every wildflower he
could find around his property in Parker County in his
I commissioned him to create something LARGE and
TOTALLY UNIQUE for some of those pictures so that
I could hang it in a prominent place in my TreeHouse
property in East Texas. But figuring out which pictures
to use, and how these pictures would be put into one or
more frames, took the two of us MONTHS of talking.
Plus it took me hours to go through the existing contact
sheets and finished photos to CHOOSE the best ones!
Eventually I settled on 35 best of the best, and then
the real fun began. Deciding HOW they would be put
into one frame (Charlie said I would go nuts constantly
straightening separate framed pictures -- so true) was a
chore, since it turned out that the black backgrounds
were slightly different colors (!?) from each other
according to fussy-pants Mr. Davis. So a massive
“contact sheet” of elegant flowers (with their names
replacing the Kodak logo) was the magnificent result. I
had him sign it and include the “1 of 1” designation for
the piece of art, which seemed appropriate since Charlie
was 1 of 1, too.
Charlie was so multi-faceted and so deeply involved
for so long, there is no way to fully reflect his impact on
PCA at the Maverick Region level, or even the National
level, without a book.
A couple of small things: I met Charlie at a Warbonnet
Tech Session in Tulsa before I was a Maverick. He and
Ed Mayo are the only two speakers I remember or ever
heard much more about! When I told my son Randall
about Charlie’s death, his first recollection was about
Charlie teaching him how to drive more smoothly on
the autocross course. Of course this meant my son was
soon beating me, because I never got over my dirt-track
roots. Charlie did a marvelous job with photography
and probably would have gained renown with Porsche
Panorama, except that Dr. (Leonard) Turner was
everywhere, back in the days before Pano became a
major commercial publication. Charlie’s ability to make
people a part of Porsche-centric pictures, and the huge
amount of time he gave to driver training and club
administration, are certainly indicative of the idea that
PCA is about the people and not just the cars.
I also remember the days when Charlie was creating
an autocross timing system that was used for the Porsche
Parade, and may have been the basis of similar systems
around the country. I do not know if he was creating it
to have it perfected before the first DFW Parade in 1987
(very farsighted) or just because it was needed and he had
the technical knowhow. I also do not know how much
his work was shared around the country. But I do have
an idea of the amount of time he must have put into it.
There is so much more that could be said. We old
folks may not be known and seen by many current
members, but Charlie and Teri were at the top of a list
of a half dozen or so that have sort of carried this club
for a long time. When I came here in 1979 there were
already only a few of the “original” cadre still active.
Few can match what Charlie and Teri did, and in so
doing, they supported each other. What a team!
I joined PCA in 1967 while living in Cleveland, Ohio.
I moved here in 1972 and started attending Maverick
Region meetings and functions. Right away it was obvious
who the leaders of the region were, Charlie Davis being
one of them. Charlie was also very active nationally, was
on the PCR (Parade Competition Rules) Committee,
and was in fact one of the main writers of the autocross
rules at that time, to the point of everyone identifying the
autocross rule structure as the “Charlie Charts.” I was
certainly in awe of him then, and so enjoyed being able to
say I knew the “famous” author personally!
Charlie was one of the early pioneers who brought the
autocross timing world kicking and screaming into the
age of computer timing, both here locally, and for Parade
timing. It was NOT an easy birthing! I remember many
autocrosses that were accompanied by screaming and
cursing from the timing trailer - but remember, this was
before store-bought timing programs. He was writing the
program, and was under pressure to get it up and running
in time for the 1987 DFW Parade.
There was an interesting confrontation at that
Parade autocross involving a VERY serious and known
curmudgeon autocrosser from California named John
Williamson. It seems that John had posted a time that
was pretty much unobtainable for his class. Charlie was
of course doing the “new computer timing” and informed
John that that time was a computer error and wouldn’t be
counted. John, being a fierce competitor, argued that the
time was correct and it should stand! Charlie argued that
it couldn’t be correct, but he would allow John one more
run, and if he could get within a half second of that time
then it would be allowed. John took his run . . . didn’t get
close! But then he told Charlie that that had been the most
fair he had ever been treated! Let’s just say that Charlie
was known for thinking “out of the box.”
Charlie had chosen me to build the engine in his 1972
911S, and after completing the engine, we took it to his
house to install it back in the car. After bolting everything
up it came time to start it . . . no luck. Needless to say,
this greatly distressed me! After some diagnosis we found
the problem: during his fastidious cleaning and painting the
engine bay, we found the ground stud that he forgotten to
mask off. Cleaned off the paint and it fired right up!
Now to most people who know Charlie, he’s the epitome
of the staid, humorless, engineer type. But they weren’t with
the Maverick Region in Jefferson, Texas for a “Mystery”
weekend, a “whodunit” enactment, with many in costume
to bolster their assigned role. So there we all are meeting
for dinner, and the final act of the weekend, when all of
our eyes turn to a rather tall skinny female sauntering in
wearing a short dress, full hose, make-up, and a daring top.
It takes us all a second to figure out why this floozy looks
familiar - it was Charlie in full drag!!!! And he was enjoying
it!! So much for the staid, humorless, engineer type!
Charlie was a well-rounded PCA member if there ever
was one; this brief article barely scratches the surface. His
presence will be missed for a long time to come! You can

Most memorable Maverick or PCA event
My wife and I both love the AX and TT events even though we haven’t participated in 10+ years.
Best thing about Porsche ownership
Of course the cars themselves. They are fantastic and amazing driving machines. It has also had
an impact on our family as our youngest son developed a Porsche interest early on. It’s been a
good connection for he and I and a lot of our discussions and activities together revolve around
Porsche and car activities in general. But equal to that is the fantastic people we have come into
contact with and met along the way.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Jay Leno has broken my heart. In an interview with
CNBC promoting his show about mostly gasoline powered
cars recently, he was quoted as saying “I predict that a
child born today probably has as much chance of driving
in a gas car as people today have been driving a car with
a stick shift.” Ouch. To be fair, despite his vast collection,
Jay is not an expert. However he is an electric car owner,
so maybe we should hear him out.
Hybrid gas/electric car sales have never really taken
off. After 20 years of hybrid car sales, market saturation
is around 2.5%. More than half of those sales in the
U.S. has been the Toyota Prius. I understand the case
for the Prius, but if that is what our future automotive
landscape looks like, I’m skipping my next colonoscopy.
Hope is not lost though, with the Porsche Taycan debut
just weeks away (at the time of this writing) it certainly
looks like performance car automakers have taken the
electric powertrain seriously. That’s a good thing, right?
I’ve had more and more and more conversations with
car lovers and “regulars” about electric cars recently. I’ve
even mulled the idea myself. Because let’s face it, it doesn’t
matter how fun your car is, when you’re sitting in traffic
it’s a drag. But then I think of what happens when the
traffic opens up. Would I want to trade the wahhh, blap,
wahhh for whirrrrr? Think of all of the silent tunnels and
underpasses. (Come on, you know you’ve done it at least
once.) Would I ever want to go out and just drive again?
Look, I know they are fast and clean and don’t require
maintenance. They’ll save millions of poppy-headed
three eyed newts I’m sure, but I’m just not ready yet. So I
propose a new sort of carbon neutral equation. For each
Taycan sold, Porsche would donate a weekend gas-burner
to a worthy enthusiast. Just a thought, Porsche. Call me.
Jay said that there was “almost no reason to own a
gasoline powered car”. Says the man with over 200 of
them. He’s probably right though. Electric car sales are
picking up. More and more manufacturers are getting into
the game. They probably are the future and my son will
most likely drive one. GASP. I might even succumb to the
pressure one day too, who knows. In the meantime, if Jay
needs to pare down his collection to make way for some
extra batteries...I know a guy. Enjoy the drive!
