SPROCKETS: What Do You Think of the Taycan?
by David Robertson, Region President
It’s hard to believe that it is already October! We have
seen a record number of events this year including Drivers’
Education events, Tours, Rallies, Autocrosses, Tech Sessions,
Mavs & Mochas, Lunches, Happy Hours, and charity and
social events. Throughout the next few months there is
much more to come. There is something going on just about
every weekend, so take a look at the calendar and come out
to enjoy. There is really something for everyone!
None of these events would be possible without our
volunteers. Our volunteers come in many forms, from the
chairpersons organizing the events themselves to those who
show up and pitch in where needed. Our club simply would
not exist without the many volunteers who give their time
and energy to make sure everything goes smoothly. When
you attend one of these events or even read this magazine,
please say thank you to the volunteers who get it all done
behind the scenes.
In upcoming events I would like to hear from
everyone about what they think of the new Porsche
Taycan. I have seen prototypes but can’t wait to see
the real thing. This is a huge step for Porsche that
I don’t think we can even compare to any major
change that has come before, such as the 928 front
engine or the first water-cooled 911. I would argue
it can’t even be compared to the hybrid models of
the past few years. Are we witnessing the future of
the sports car?
From what I have read, the new 911 (992) is designed to
allow for an electric motor as well. My biggest pleasure in
being a member of the Maverick Region is speaking with all
of you about these topics. Come out and join us; I promise
that you will meet an expert on just about any question you
have, or at least someone who sounds convincing!
MAV OF THE MONTH:
As the DE Chief Driving Coach, Craig devours any book, video, or article that
can help him drive faster and teach others to do the same. He is an Engineer by trade
and is very analytical in his approach to making sure that the DE program is safe,
fun and welcoming to all participants. Behind the scenes Craig also works countless
hours to organize the operations of these events as only someone with a true passion
for driving and sharing his knowledge with others can do.
As a kid Craig participated in motocross, off road motorcycle enduros, threewheeler
flat track racing, and surf racing a Hobie, but after a trip to Skip Barber
Racing school in 2003 he says that the real game was on!
Craig currently enjoys his Macan S when he’s not on the track. Thank you, Craig,
for your passion and dedication for making the Maverick DE program a great part
of the Maverick Region!

Getting to Know the Ladies of the PCA
by Joann Talty
photos by Michael Durovick
Reaching out to some of the
Maverick ladies for this feature
opened my eyes, not only to the
female car owners in the group, but
to volunteers who’ve given countless
hours and have been club members
for a very long time.
Fourteen women shared fun stories, proud
moments, or great memories with me. Nearly
every woman in this piece is in this club for the
friendships, and most of us are eager to learn more
about our cars and what we can do with them.
While some women became Porsche
owners through a significant other
and park his and hers in their garages,
I learned others fell in love with the
brand early on. I was surprised to find
that four of these ladies currently own
more than one Porsche, some have a
long history of Porsche ownership,
and one woman’s household happens
to hold 12 (admittedly owned by her
husband, but still quite impressive.)
We ladies like naming our vehicles,
too, with “Baby” and “Beast” used
more than once.
Whichever models sit in our
garages, I hope all of the female owners
here agree with me when I say it’s good
to be us! Ladies and gentlemen, let me
tell you about a few of the Ladies of
the Maverick Region PCA.
Social Chair for monthly happy
hours, Claudia Reynolds, drives a
2014 Rhodium Silver metallic Boxster
S named “Bonita” (aka the Little
Devil Car when
she displays her
666.) She claims
joining the PCA
this past March
is one of the best
ever made. Claudia grew up drag
racing in American muscle cars, but
now enjoys her German sports car
at the DE events, PCA rallies, and
Sports Car Club of America (SCCA)
rallies. Claudia shared a favorite
Porsche moment from high school.
Her best friend drove an orange 914
with holes in the floor. Every time her
friend turned left the horn sounded. A
GT3RS is on her wish list and maybe
a radar detector for those tickets she
Jennifer Parma joined the PCA
in 2018. She purchased “Indie,” her
2007 Midnight Blue Boxster, on a
whim. Both the aggressive body style
and the fact that it is a convertible
drew her in, but she admits once she
drove it, she was hooked. Jennifer
appreciates viewing and learning
about the cars at various events and
hopes to be more involved with club
operations. Next up, perhaps? Look
for her at the track.
You may have met Olga Taylor
in recent years, volunteering at signup
tables with a friendly smile as she
disperses helpful instructions. At age
11, her Dad’s friend gave her a ride
home in his 911 and she was drawn
in by the style, sound, and interior
smell. In 1979, she purchased her
first Porsche: a black 1974 914 1.8L.
She spent two years with the PCA
in Oregon during the 1980s and has
been a Maverick since 2017. She owns
“Baby,” a 1980 Nutmeg Metallic 911
SC Targa she purchased from the
Hermosa Beach dealership owned
by race car driver, car collector, and
racing team owner Vasek Polak in
1984. Her most recent acquisition is
“Buddy,”a black 2009 911 Carrera.
Olga enjoys both the helpful and
friendly people of the PCA, noting
the generous and loving technical
Carolle Liu loves COCO, her
white 2005 Boxster, for its perfect
balance on an autocross track. A club
member for three years, she drives
her first Porsche top-down as often as
possible. You might catch her loading
groceries into her bonnet. We know
not to offer Carolle help if we see her,
but for the frequent offers of assistance
she receives, she’s been known to ask
a few guys to return her shopping cart
for her. Despite not hitting a cone all
season, she was awarded with the
“Cone Killer” award at a PCA party.
Besides Mavs & Mochas and ER
Autocross events, Carolle too, hopes
to hit the track for a DE event.
A former Boxster owner, Beckie
Gomer currently drives “Pepper,” a
white 2014 Cayenne, a birthday gift
from her husband, Tom. Together,
they have owned five
Porsches, but she
credits meeting other
women in the club as
the reason she wanted
her own. A member of
the club since 2013, she
values the friendships
she’s made and the
other models. Mavs &
Mochas, tours, and happy
hours are some of her
Our next member takes
her vehicle off-roading and
overlanding. In October
2017, she led a group along
the trails at Northwest
OHV Park in Bridgeport,
maneuvering over large boulders
and through crevices to show
drivers what their Porsches can
do. More recently, she’s planning
an overland route near Corsicana,
concluding at Angelita Vineyard and
Winery. Six-year Maverick Sue Crimm
just sold her red 1987 924S, drives a
2009 Meteor Grey Cayenne, and is
looking for a Lava Orange Cayman.
Sue enjoys autocross, tours, rallies,
and going to Parade.
If you see a 2016 Carmine Red 911
Carrera GTS Cabriolet about town,
on the tours, or on the track driving
with the White group,
her name is “Rebecca,”
named after a redheaded
owner is seven-year
Ebeling, who has loved
Porsches since her
teens. She’s owned a
2008 Cayman S and a
2013 911 Carrera S,
loving the speed, the
sound, and unique styling. Several
times a year, she and her friends
plan travels in their 911s featuring
beautiful scenery, great food, and
the curviest routes they can find.
Has Kristyn Starr been your coach
yet at a DE event? She’s been a club
member since 2012 and owns her
dream car: a 2006 Seal Grey Carrera
S named “Baby.” While high school
friends hung posters of heart-throb
boy bands in their rooms, Kristyn
hung a heart-throb car in hers. Encouraged by both parents
to “buy the car” when she began looking, she went for it,
figuring she’d get it out of her system after a few years and
move on. “There is no moving on,” says Kristyn. In a 2013
DE drivers’ meeting, she won the Toyo Tires Rookie of the
Year Award. She found this special since she learned to drive
a manual in her Porsche. How many people get to do that?
Our current swap meet chair, Robyn Howard, has been a
Maverick member for 15 years. After her husband purchased
a 911, she wanted one too. She’s owned a 1987 Guards Red
924S and a 2003 Midnight Metallic Boxster. She currently
owns “My Baby,” a 1986 Guards Red 944; “Molly,” a
black 2002 Boxster S; and
her “Beast,” a red 2001 996.
Robyn plans to drive in a
DE event someday when she
isn’t working them. She has
been a corner, tower, and grid
worker at many events and is
currently occupying the black
flag post at our DEs.
Twenty-two year member
and multiple-award winner
Wendy Shoffit has held
countless positions with our
club and has participated in all events but Concours. She
has attended 19 Parades, auto-crossed, time-trialed, and
instructed at the autocross schools. She is the current Club
Race registrar and has done that for 18 years. Wendy has
also served as the club Secretary, Slipstream Editor, Social
Chair, registrar for DEs and autocross/time trials, and was
the PCA National Newsletter chair for five years. A former
Boxster and Cayenne owner, she now shuffles between
“Ares,” her white 2016 Cayman GT4, and Artemis, the
white 2016 Macan Turbo along with weekends in her 911
racecar. When asked what else she’d like to try or drive,
club racing and a Taycan just might be in Wendy’s future.
Fran Ussery has been a Maverick since 1983 and has held
various positions within the club including Region President,
Slipstream Editor, and Slipstream Publisher. She also served
on the National
Rules committee for
12 years. She used
to own a white 1966
911 and a red 1986
but currently juggles
a silver 1973 914
2.0,and “Jezabel,” her
Speed Yellow 2000
Boxster S. Loving the
top-down freedom of
a cabriolet, Fran shared a favorite Porsche moment with me
from the fall of 2000 when she took a week-long Colorado
road trip in her Boxster. Besides photographing her new car
with beautiful mountains and golden Aspens, her bucket list
included driving only state or county roads numbered with
three digits or more, visiting small towns, eating at local
diners, meeting someone new at each stop, drinking coffee
atop a mountain, and executing road curves at twice the
Lastly, I reached out to
Linda Bambina, Teri Davis,
and Jan Michel. Longtime
Mavericks must surely know
them since the three have
been with the club since the
‘70s and ‘80s. They’ve
driven competitively, held
multiple offices, and won
numerous awards. These
three are the pioneer women
of our group, along with
Fran, who got involved,
provided a woman’s voice to the group, and made life-long
friendships. If you’d like to be more involved with the
Mavericks, there are a variety of opportunities. Pull any one
of us aside, and we’ll talk you into it.

There are sayings such as “It takes a village,” “It was a

these hold true when it comes to putting on all of the events
we have yearly as a Maverick Region.
On Saturday, August 24, we held our second annual

year with special invitation
to our Club Volunteers and
Advertising Partners as a
way of giving thanks for
supporting the Maverick
Region. This year, the event
was sponsored by Neiman
Marcus Willow Bend in

In Memoriam: Warren Bischoff
by Tom Martin, as told by Brenda Bischoff
The Maverick Region mourns the loss of one of its dear
members, Warren Bischoff. Warren passed away unexpectedly of
natural causes earlier this year at his home in Highland Village.
He is survived by his wife Brenda, daughter Lauren, and brother
Scott and his family.
Those who knew Warren remember him as a very sociable
fellow; always greeting fellow Mavericks with a big hug and a
smile at Monthly Socials. His was a commanding presence; a
handsome, larger than life figure. If life were simply an episode
of the old TV show Bonanza, then Warren would be Ben
Cartwright, the patriarch of the family.
A true renaissance man, Warren’s love affair with life manifested
itself through his passion for cars, airplanes, history, art, books,
film, travel, music, comedy, games and life’s simple pleasures.
Warren harbored a long-time admiration for everything
Porsche, fueled by his fascination with motor racing, and the
heroes who piloted their Porsches to victory.
Upon enlisting in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam conflict,
Warren served as a helicopter mechanic while stationed in
Korea. Stateside after his two year stint, he began his career with
American Airlines, where he achieved the lofty status of master
aircraft mechanic. Brenda and Warren married in 1975 and settled
in Chicago, before relocating to the DFW Metroplex 29 years ago.
In 2017, Warren joined an elite group of talented, seasoned
individuals when he was presented with the Charles Taylor Master
Mechanic Award, presented by
the FAA only to those aircraft
master mechanics who have
successfully served for 50 years.
Being a car guy, Warren’s
experience as a master
mechanic served him well,
especially in the area of car
restoration. He restored two
Porsches, as well as some good old American iron from the
Golden Age, and also a Ford Mustang that he lovingly restored
with his daughter Lauren.
When Lauren was in high school, the two embarked on a father/
daughter project to restore a 1966 Ford Mustang. The experience
was a bonding one, and needless to say, the already beautiful Lauren
attracted the attention of many of her male classmates when the
project was completed and parked in the school lot.
Brenda and Warren loved to travel together; trips to the
Continent were followed by pilgrimages to Porsche Parade and
Rennsport, where Warren reveled in the sights and sounds of
Porsche’s racing machines. One year, he managed to wrangle the
autographs of ALL the Porsche racing drivers present.
As a gentleman, a husband and a father, and also a member
of the Maverick Region, Warren will be sorely missed by all who
were blessed to know him.
Maverick Drivers’ Education Series: Fall Events
by Renee Hayden, Region DE Chair
The fall season of High Performance
Drivers’ Education (HPDE) events
kicks off the weekend of September
14-15 at Eagles Canyon Raceway
in Decatur, TX. It’s our first trip to
Eagles Canyon since the ownership of
the track changed, and the track has
undergone extensive rebuilding. The
totally new asphalt is nothing short
of amazing. The pavement at Eagles
Canyon is as smooth and fast as the
asphalt at Circuit of the Americas
when it was new. The sight lines and
safety are much improved because
the hills that made for so many blind
turns have been moved back and the
track widened. If you haven’t been to
Eagles Canyon in a while, you will
recognize almost all of the track, but
there are many changes that you’ve
just got to see - and more importantly
If you missed signing up for the
September event, we missed you
too. The good news is that we have
another event at Eagles Canyon the
weekend of October 19-20. You
will find information and a link to
registration at http://mav.pca.org/
Events/DE/. Registration is open
NOW. Don’t miss out!
The final HPDE event of the
season will find us at MotorSport
Ranch in Cresson, TX the weekend
of November 9-10. Registration
for the November event will
open on October 9.
Maverick Region PCA HPDE
events are open to everyone age 18
and above, driving any car. You bring
your car and your enthusiasm to have
fun, be safe, learn, and make friends.
We provide certified PCA coaches
in your car, and present training in
classroom sessions. Our events are
extremely popular, an outstanding
value, and sell out quickly.
In addition to all the above, for
our advanced run groups (Yellow
and White), we now offer a new
advanced coaching program, called
Coach for the Day, tailored to the
specific interests of the advanced
participant. This new program
provides the option of selecting one
of our Advanced Coaches to work
with you for the entire weekend or a
portion of the weekend. Prior to the
event, you work with your selected
Advanced Coach to develop a
list of skills and goals you want
to work on during the weekend.
This program will help you make
significant progress in your driving.
Best of all, this program is free!

It would make a great movie: When Car Worlds
Collide (or, how a bunch of Porsche people ended up

Cruising Instagram at midnight is a wonderful thing,
there’s no telling what’s gonna pop up, but a mid-July
post from Heath Murray, owner of Murray Kustom
Rods in Fort Worth, caught my eye:

Maverick Marktpreis: Cayman 987
by Peter Wen
“The thing about the Cayman is - gosh, I hope
they don’t hate me for saying this - I think it’s
just about better than any 911. The Cayman is
one of the best-handling cars I’ve ever driven,”
said Randy Pobst in MotorTrend magazine.
The Cayman won the magazine’s
inaugural Best Driver’s Car in 2009 by
besting the likes of Audi R8, Corvette
ZR-1, CTS-V, and MX-5 Miata.
Yeah, the Cayman is that good!
First launched in 2006, the
Cayman is a coupé derived from
two models are virtually
identical except for the
fixed top. Cayman’s
hard top, along with an
extra crossbeam behind
the seats, made it twice as stiff and
10 pounds lighter compared to the
Boxster. With its supercar-like midengine
placement, perfect balance
was achieved. While Porsche made
sure the Cayman can never truly
challenge the flagship 911, its
executives freely admit that the midengine
layout of the Cayman is the
dynamically superior concept.
Upon introduction, the Cayman
won “Best in Show” at the
prestigious 2005 Frankfurt
International Motor Show. Awards
and accolades soon followed
throughout 987’s seven-year
production run. Today, clean, lowmileage
examples can be found for
less than $30,000. Just like Evander
Holyfield, pound for pound, the
Cayman is the Real Deal!
Excellence’s magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide offered these Cayman price ranges:
’06-’08 S $20k-$30k
’09-’12 S $33k-$40k
’12 R $55k-$65k
Fun fact: The name Cayman came from the caiman, a member of
the alligator family. To celebrate its launch, Porsche adopted four
caimans at Stuttgart's Wilhelma Zoo!

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by author
Well, talk about a chance meeting!
A few weeks ago I was working on
putting a group of cars together
for the Third Annual Park Place
Luxury & Supercar Showcase. The
one elusive car was a 924 - I know,
right? For some reason, rarely do we
have any show up at our monthly
Mavs & Mochas. So, I reached out
to our Membership Chair Jim Hirsch
and asked him to pull the file on 924
owners. Jim sends me a handful, but
says there is this Guards Red 924
Turbo that would be nice, as you don’t
find that many. So I send an
email to the owner and tell him
what we need and to call me.
Well within five minutes I get
a call back and this guy is over
the moon that we would want
his car. We spoke for about
10 minutes, during which he
said he would be out at the
upcoming Mavs & Mochas at
Highland Park Village. Sure
enough, that morning, along
with nearly 200 other Porsches
comes in the lone 924.
So here is the next in my
series of “conversations” I
would like to share with you:
George Snowflack, enthusiast since 2005,
Owner, ‘76 914 2.0, 82 924 Turbo, ‘88 924S,
and 2019 911T
Bill Kruder: So where are you two from?
George Snowflack: I’m a New Jersey
guy; I grew up in Lake Hopatcong
in Morris County not far from
Morristown, about 60 minutes
northwest of Manhattan.
BK: And where did you go to college?
GS: Wagner College in Staten Island,
about 60 minutes southeast of Lake
Hopatcong; I graduated in 2005 with
a degree in International Business and
BK: Did you stay near home after
GS: Oh no, that wasn’t necessarily the
plan, but I couldn’t have moved much
further from home. I took a job in
San Francisco and got involved with
start-up software companies.
BK: So how did you end up here?
GS: After spending about five years in
SF, my company presented me with
an opportunity in Dallas, so I made
the move and landed in the Midway
Hollow neighborhood around
Northwest Highway and Midway.
George and Beth Snowflack
BK: I understand you are married?
How did you meet?
GS: Yes, married to Beth for three
years now. It’s kind of funny. I was
hosting a customer dinner at Bob’s
Steakhouse. Beth caught my eye from
across the room - she just had this
gorgeous smile - so I walked over by
her (I had some “liquid” courage)
and introduced myself to
her and her mom who were
enjoying an after-dinner
drink. As it turned out, she
had just moved to Dallas
the day before! She was
opening up a new retail
store at Shops @ Legacy. As
they say the rest is history.
We now have two kids:
Ella, who is 19 months, and
Ava, who is two weeks old.
BK: Let’s talk cars now. What was
your first car?
GS: It was red 1989 Toyota Supra
followed by a VW Scirocco and a GTI.
BK: Where does your car passion
GS: My entire family but mostly my
dad; he always had this love of all
things cars and motorcycles. As a kid
he would take me to the New York
International Auto Show at Javits
Center. He really wasn’t a German
car guy but just loved to work
on and restore things. Nothing
crazy; his projects were all about
being kept original, reliable, and
functional. Except the El Camino
(laughter); we spent a lot of time
working on my 87 El Camino:
black with a 454 and a 3-speed.
The thing has about 500 hp. It’s
BK: Ok let’s talk Porsches now.
What was your first one?
GS: That would be my ‘76 914
2.0; I bought it in 2005. When
I was living in SF, my neighbor
owned it; He had bought it brand
new, and the car was solid. This was
just another project I volunteered
my dad to help me with (laughing). I
kept it all original except the addition
of Koni coilovers and some sticky
tires. We’d drive it up and down the
California coast on Hwy 1; actually
my best memory in that car was our scuba trip. We loaded
up the frunk with our scuba tanks and flippers and made a
bunch of dives through the kelp beds of Monterey Bay.
BK: When did you acquire the 924s?
GS: Actually not that long ago. I bought the Turbo in 2017
and the S in 2018. The cars are so much fun in a similar way
that my 914 is fun, but they also share a lot of DNA with the
Scirocco that I drove as a kid. That has to be one of the things
that attracted me to the 924s.
BK: Tell me about the 2019. Did you buy it local?
GS: Man, I love this new 911 T that I ordered from Porsche
of Ocala, which isn’t far from Tampa. I could have shipped
it to Dallas, but what fun is that, right?! I asked my dad if
he’d be interested in the 1,200-mile drive to Dallas and he
agreed without hesitation. We planned out the perfect breakin
drive, about 1,200 miles and 16 hours of driving with one
overnight stay in Gulf Shores, AL. What’s so cool about the
car is that it’s rather plain to the eye, and powered by the base
Carrera 3.0 engine, but Porsche did something special with
the T. They put it on a diet (the lightest 991 by about 60 lbs)
by removing the rear seats and all of the sound deadening
material throughout the car, and by stealing parts that are
only available in the higher-end GT car lineup: carbon fiber
buckets, lightweight glass, ceramic breaks, and a close-ratio
7-speed manual transmission only available for this car.
BK: So where do you keep this collection of cars?
GS: I bought a garage at Garages of Texas - the Lakeview location
near Love Field. I keep the cars on the first floor and converted
the mezzanine into my office. We’ve hosted a few Garages and
Gearheads events there. Look for the 924 and come say hello.
Well there you have it: another what-if. Don’t miss out on
those around you. Driving Friendships is what it really is

Prolific Parade at Boca Raton
by Wendy Shoffit
James and I have now been to 19 Porsche Parades.
We started going in 2000 to Sacramento, CA, and
immediately fell in love with it. We have only missed
one since (Portland 2006) when our schedules just
wouldn’t allow it. Our daughter Jasmine started going
with us a year after our first one, and has now attended
18 – and she’s only 22! There have been some fantastic
locations and some that weren’t quite as well-liked.
This year was at the Boca Raton Resort & Club (a
Waldorf Astoria Resort) in southern Florida. Talk about
beautiful! This place was amazing. The rooms were less
expensive than normal thanks to the group rates PCA
National negotiates. Everything else was not cheap, but
it’s what was mostly expected. I still opted out of the
$15 Toblerone from the mini bar in the room!
This was a great Parade for Maverick Region. At
the Concours Banquet we were awarded Region of
the Year for 2018! This is an amazing honor to be
considered the best region out of 145 regions across
the US and Canada. We had a good sized group in
attendance to accept the honor.

and Wendy accepting the Membership Growth award
Later in the week we received another big award for
the Region with the largest actual membership growth.
We increased our membership last year by 179 members.
No other region was even close.
The awards didn’t stop there. Jim Hirsch and Kurt
Scaggs won first place in Class VI in the Newsletter
Contest for Slipstream as well as Best Newsletter Cover!
Not to be outdone, Bill Orr won BEST Overall Website! Is
it any wonder why we are the top region??? Fantastic job!

Parade isn’t just about national awards. There are four
major competitive events (Concours, Rally, Autocross,
and Tech Quiz) and several other supporting ones. While
this year there were no Mavericks in the Concours, we
performed well in the Autocross. Fran Ussery won second
place in the S05 class in her Boxster S. Mark Steele took
first in S11 in his 911 C4S. Ed Mayo and Julia Underwood
both took first place in their P06 (men’s and women’s)
classes in Ed’s ’72 911S. Pam Stubbs took first place in the
Novice Class. Lastly, I also won first place in the P17 class
in my Macan Turbo. It was a hot event, but a fun course.
Not many Mavericks entered the TSD Rally, but Fran
and Carl Ussery placed fifth in the Unequipped Class. The
Briggs family was strong in the Art Show, with Heather
winning first place in classic color photography and Reagan
taking first place in the Young Artist category. Brayden
Paes took second place in Young Artist. Jasmine Shoffit
won second place in Computer Generated Art. Bruce
Hollander won second place in Sculpture. Lastly, the Briggs
in the the RC
first in the age
8-9 group in
took first in on
and off in his age

Parade has much
more to offer

the Everglades, an
off-road SUV tour,
Top: Mavericks stick together, even in Florida
Bottom: James showing off his Pink Pig Club
Race shirt in the special “Pig Pen” area
on a Riverboat, a visit to the Collier Collection, and many more. There’s just
something for everyone. Kids are never bored at Parade with activities every day.
They’re entertained with craft days, mini-concours and “anycross” competitions,
RC cars, and the like.
The Goodie Store is also strong during this week with Parade, PCA, and
Porsche merchandise. You want to buy it?
They’ve got it! The hospitality area is always a
nice cool place to sit and socialize while enjoying
complimentary snacks. Vendors are around with
goodies to give out and advice/information for
those looking for it. Knowledge seekers need
look no further than the Tech Tactics, an all-day
educational seminar series towards the end of the
week. Fitness buffs can compete in the 5K Run/
Walk or Golf tournament.
Add to this the FIVE available banquet dinners
with fabulous food and door prizes, plus a
Volunteer Worker Party (for those who work two
or more shifts) where they give away multiple sets
of tires - what more could you possibly want in a
week’s vacation? Hopefully you will join us next
year in Palm Springs, CA, June 21-27, 2020, or
the following year in French Lick, IN, July 11-17,
2021. Congratulations again to the Region and
all the Award Winners. This was a year for the
record books for sure.

How I came to love Porsches will either tell you how
old or how young I am. Remember those Scholastic Book
Fairs that were held in your elementary school libraries?
When I was in the first grade, my father bought me a
book, simply titled Super Cars.
That book contained pages of
sports cars with their 0-60
times, engine specifications,
power output, and general
information. On the cover of
this book was none other than
the 993 Turbo.
I would spend hours
reading this book over and
over again. The one car I fell
in love with however, was the
911. I would draw it over
and over again and fantasize about driving one. When
one passed on the road, I would shout out to all the
passengers that there was a 911 in our proximity. I told
myself that one my life goals would be to own a 911.
This dream lived on even in my young adult years. In

class I would sometimes get on my laptop and browse
build threads on Rennlist and Pelican and just appreciate
the Porsche community, while also thinking about what
I would do differently if such a machine would ever
come into my possession.
Over time, the line that
separated dream from reality
started to fade, and I began
The Search. Although it
was the 993 that captured
my heart, after years of
researching more about 911s,
I knew a 3.2 Carrera was the
one I truly wanted (maybe a
993 will be in my garage in
the future!). After local test
drives of both 915s and G50s,
two failed PPIs on prospective 911s, and eight months
of unhealthy obsessive searching (I had a process of
several websites and search queries that I would run
every day, multiple times a day), I found a 1989 3.2
in Illinois. I put a deposit down, booked a one-way to
Peoria with my girlfriend, and drove 800 miles home
in my dream car. I’m sure all the other Porsche owners
reading this will understand this, but the drive home
was surreal. Maybe it’s the honeymoon phase, but I
still catch myself just sitting in my garage sometimes
looking at it.
This isn’t a “Never Meet Your Hero” story. The 911
has lived up to every expectation plus more. When
I turn the key and hear the engine, smell the old
leather, and feel how responsive the car is, I feel like
that same six-year-old kid 20 years ago – only this
time I’m not fantasizing.
Hopefully, this won’t be my last Porsche, but I’m
beyond happy to own this, and even happier to be a
part of such an awesome community. In this era of
technological advancement and the industry’s
embarkment into electric vehicles with auto revmatching
and other driver aides, I’ll be cruising in my
air-cooled Porsche – with manual steering, that aircooled
sound that can’t be replicated by a battery, and
a driver connection that embodies what Porsche meant
when they said “There is no substitute.”

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
This month instead of debating electric cars or
lamenting my skills as a mechanic,
we’ll hear from a new voice. I’m going
to introduce “Porsche” the puppy
at Patriot PAWS that the Maverick
Region has sponsored with the help of
your donations. Patriot PAWS as many
of you know is an organization that
devotes their time and attention to
serving American Veterans by training
and providing high quality service dogs
at no cost. These dogs help our vets to
restore their physical and emotional
independence. Here is the letter that
we received from Porsche; she’s quite
well spoken for a six month old.
Hi. It’s me Porsche. I am almost 6
months old and boy have I learned a lot
since coming to Patriot PAWS. I am now
with a DFW Puppy Raiser named Tammie who is taking me to
all kinds of great places. We went for a demonstration at a law
firm and also went to play. Two entirely different experiences,
but I learned a lot from both. Cues I have
learned in the last month include “Loose
Leash Walk”, “Eye Contact”, “Go Now”
and “Load Up”.
My favorite toy is a ball, any kind
of ball. As an only pup, I have learned
that I can play all by myself when I
need to. For example, I can roll the ball
and fetch it too. I have learned a new
cue called “Leave It”. That is when I
am supposed to ignore things that I
would like to pick up, but shouldn’t.
And when I do it right, I get a yummy
treat, so it’s worth the restraint.
My Puppy Raiser says I am a sweet
pup with great focus and I work hard
and love to please.
So, in closing, I want to thank you for
supporting Patriot PAWS and making all of this possible.
