Always soulful. Never static.
The new Taycan has arrived at Park Place. It’s the first all-electric Porsche ever
produced—and a high-performance sports car through and through. With two
permanent-magnet synchronous motors generating up to 750 hp and acceleration
faster than a skydiver in free fall. Plus, an 800-volt battery that can be partially recharged
to add up to 62 miles of range in just over five minutes. And this uncompromising
Porsche comes equipped with a uniquely personal dealership experience.
That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

What a way to start off 2020 . . . as Region Secretary!
If you had asked me a year ago what my club involvement
would look like now, my response would have been that it
surely would not have been a board position!
I purchased my ‘07 Midnight Blue Boxster I call “Indie”
a couple of years ago on a whim - literally. I saw, I drove,
I bought . . . all on the same day. I had never owned a
Porsche before, or knew anything about them for that
matter. I was scrolling through a Facebook page where a
friend of a friend listed it for sale. I scrolled past it, then
back to it several times, falling in love with the beautiful
lines with each view. I took the car out for a test drive and
knew I had to have that beauty in my garage.
It wasn’t until about a year later that I discovered there
was a local Porsche club that held events. My first event
I attended was the Porsche Promenade at Brookhaven
Country Club in 2018. I had such a great time that day .
. . I was hooked! I began attending Mavs & Mochas on a
regular basis while forming friendships along the way.
I made it official and joined PCA a few months later,
and in March 2019 I attended the Tour and All Member
Party. It was my first organized drive and I had a blast! The
Maverick Region received multiple awards that morning,
one of which was the Membership Growth Award for
2018. I looked around the room at some already familiar
faces and some new ones, too, and felt very proud to be
a part of such a wonderful and dedicated organization. I
Board Botschaft: Jumping In with Both Feet
by Jennifer Parma, Region Secretary
MAV OF THE MONTH:
am looking forward to the 2020 All Member Party again
this year on March 22. In 2019, our region’s membership
increased by nearly 180 new members, so there will be
something to celebrate! Mark your calendars: registration
for this event opens February 1. Please encourage any new
member you may know to attend.
So. Now I’m on the Executive Board for the Maverick
Region. In just a little over a year from my very first event;
you can say I have jumped in with both feet. I am proud to
be serving with others on the board who have experience,
dedication and the love of Porsches and the people who
drive them. And remember, if you need anything - anything
at all - just ask the President. ;)
Scott has been a member with the PCA for close to five years. Often, when you
see him at one of our many events or a Porsche Pop-Up, you’ll notice he’s always
dressed to match the beautiful color of his Carmon Red 996 GT3. Scott is always
willing to help out when ever needed. Most recently he has provided his ideas and
skills to help simplify the voting for our People’s Choice Car Shows. Scott already
has more ideas about how to bring information and voting to our fingertips with
digital apps on our smartphones. Scott is full of knowledge and willing to share
when it comes to turning wrenches on our Porsches. Scott is just one example of how
our club stays “Fueled by Volunteers.” Please join me in Congratulating Scott as our
Maverick of the Month.

You’re Invited: 2020 All Member Party
By Debi Kruder, Region Social Chair
Over 350 Mavericks drove at least 40 miles for last
year’s “Alle Mitglieder,” our annual All Member social,
to get to what proved to be well worth the drive for
an amazing All Member Morning: two events for over
3000 members! That event last year boasted the largest
annual social event in Maverick history, with a record
number of participants. With a turnout like that how
could we not do a repeat?
That’s right Mavs . . . our All Member Morning is
Sunday, March 22, thanks to our sponsor Autobahn,
and it will not disappoint!
The morning kicks off with the first driving tour of
the year, consisting of 45 miles of pure country bliss.
Enjoy the cattle ranches and horse farms among the
roar of more than 100 engines while traveling through
the towns of Van Alstyne, Weston, Celina, Pilot Point,
Tioga, and finally arriving to our destination Gunter,

Porsche flags will line the drive and our Maverick
volunteers will greet you to assist in parking. As you
walk around the circle drive you will see the gorgeous
fountain and enter the barn door, immediately smelling
a most delicious country breakfast bar, including eggs,
smoked applewood bacon, sausage patties, breakfast
potatoes, and fresh seasonal fruit.
What was last year’s crowd favorite? The Southern
Biscuit Bar, and we’ve made sure to double our order of
the warm biscuits, buttermilk fried chicken, and all the
toppings! Mingle, eat, and enjoy the Bubbly Bar and
Bloody Marys as we welcome our new members too!
Nearly a third in attendance last year were new members,
and it’s the perfect place to meet and get connected with
club opportunities. Our Maverick officers and chair
representatives will be on site to showcase the 2020
events we are so excited about. Rumor has it our new
President, Bill Kruder, will also be introducing a new
Maverick award Crest Club that’s sure to make the All
Member Morning extra special too!
TX. The tour begins at 10 am, departing Van Alystne
on the beloved FM 455, with a registration fee of $5
And what waits in Gunter, TX? Well, the 2020 All
Member Brunch begins at 11 am at One Preston Event
Center Carriage House, Chapel, and Victorian Estate. The
property will leave you speechless. It’s a gorgeous space with
vaulted ceilings, large windows, and barn doors overlooking
acres of lush landscaping with great patios and the largest
number of Porsches you are sure to see in one place!

A Brief History of The MineralRing
by Carey Spreen, related to him by Bob Manskey
The year 2019 marked the end of an era for the Maverick
Region Time Trial and Autocross series. As of January 1,
2020, the large concrete pad next to Mineral Wells Airport,
affectionately known as The MineralRing, was closed to
motorsports use. Anyone who participated in our Time
Trial or Autocross series as far back as 1987 certainly has
memories of the facility.
The beginnings of site came about in September 1956,
when nearby Fort Wolters was returned to the US Army
(after its use during World War II as
an Air Force base) to house the United
States Army Primary Helicopter
School. This school was to consist
of three heliports: the main heliport
at Fort Wolters, just east of Mineral
Wells, and eventually two more, built
later as the base expanded.
In 1957, there were only 12
helicopters in the training fleet. In
1965, that number was increased to
400, then to 775 a year later, and finally
to 1,058 in 1967. To accommodate
this increase, Downing AHP was
built in 1966, and contained spaces
for about 300 helicopters, along with
a 64,000 square foot maintenance
hangar, briefing rooms, fire station,
administrative offices, and control
tower. The facility totaled 97 acres,
which the Army leased from the City
of Mineral Wells for the princely sum
of one dollar per year. The base was
deactivated in 1973, after which it
sat, dormant and unused, next to the airport.
Jump ahead to 1986, when Maverick Region was
looking for a new venue for its Time Trial series. From 1984
through 1986, we had used the now-defunct Green Valley
Raceway, formerly located in Smithfield/North Richland
Hills, as our Time Trial track. When we were advised of its
impending closure, we went on the hunt for a replacement.
As luck would have it, Maverick Region member and
Time Trialer Bob Manskey lived in Mineral Wells and knew
about the unused Downing AHP facility. Bob contacted the
city manager and shortly came to a handshake agreement
that allowed Bob (and Maverick Region) free use of the site.
For the first four years (1987 – 1990), Maverick Region
had exclusive use of the grounds, which hosted our Time
Trial series, as well as the occasional autocross. The
moniker “MineralRing” was soon coined, although the
name of the person who came up with it is lost to history.
Early on, the Mineral Wells Volunteer Fire Department
began selling concessions at the venue, and they soon were
able to purchase their first jaws-of-life using the proceeds.
Maverick Region laid out three to four “permanent”
time trial courses, which we rotated through during each
year for variety. Because the site is just one big slab of
concrete, the courses were marked with traffic cones,
whose locations were painted on the concrete to make
each course repeatable. Interestingly, only PCA used
these time trial courses; when it was opened up to other
clubs, they set up their own short
When the city manager retired
in 1990, his replacement wanted
to make the use of the facility a
business deal, so, beginning in 1991,
Bob leased the site for $1750 per
year, opening it up to any car club
in the area that wanted to use it.
This included PCA, SCCA, Equipe
Rapide, a couple of Corvette clubs,
the Honda S2000 club , and the
BMW club. Maintaining the site
mainly consisted of making portable
toilets available and keeping the
facility clean. Local hotels and
restaurants saw a significant uptick
in business; at one point, the Mineral
Wells Chamber of Commerce
estimated that the MineralRing
brought in almost $1 million per
year. Maverick Region also hosted

the site, with proceeds benefiting the
Hope Shelter, now known as the Huffaker-Hughes Hope
House, which is based in Mineral Wells.
For years the site was available seven days a week. Some
well-known names occasionally rented the facility for
weekday testing were Johnny Rutherford, Andy Pilgrim,
and Trans Am racer Lou Gigliotti (who is currently
building the LG Motorsports track in Collin County).
In addition, vintage racecar owners brought such cars
as a Cosworth-powered John Wyer Gulf Mirage, a Ford
GT40 (which Bob got to drive), and a race-prepared 427
Shelby Cobra to the site. When George W. Bush owned
the Texas Rangers baseball team, he held a few “customer
appreciation” days at the MineralRing.
There were only a couple of rules that Bob had
to enforce: no wheel-to-wheel racing (time trials and
autocross are of course against-the-clock, not wheel-towheel
events), and no motorcycles. The mainstream car
clubs did things by the book: they insured their events,
did tech inspections, and generally ran safe events. In
contrast, there were the “drift clubs,” which had little to
no organization, no one responsible, and no safety-related
rules, which was a show-stopper for Bob. Early on, Bob
had allowed one motorcycle group to use the facility;
one rider fell, breaking an arm, and when they left, they
didn’t pay for the rental. That set the tone for the “no
motorcycle” rule: from that point on, only four-wheeled
vehicles were allowed. Incidentally, that broken arm was
the only injury ever sustained there during a driving event.
Over the years, the city tried to take back portions
of the site, claiming that they had requests from local
businesses to pay for the use of the area. Over the years,
the original site shrank, forcing the reconfiguration of
the fencing, but the car clubs still kept coming, so Bob
kept renting. Around 2011, the city restricted use of
the site to just weekends, plus the occasional Friday on
Finally, in 2019, the city gave Bob the fateful news
that they would be terminating the lease and taking back
the site to build additional hangars. With no recourse,
Bob had no choice but to relinquish control of the site,
contacting all of the car clubs that had asked for 2020
dates to let them know that the site would no longer be
available as of January 1, 2020.
Farewell MineralRing, and thank you Bob Manskey
for keeping it available to us for the last 32 years!
Contact me to learn how you can get
the most out of retirement.

Tech Session Recap: Werks 11
by Rob Adams
photos provided by Author
It doesn’t take much to persuade a gaggle of Mavericks
to gather for a road trip, and that certainly proved to be true
in mid-November, when over a dozen members attended a
After a robust tech and Q&A session, the members of
both regions traveled a few minutes further south to Salado,
where we were hosted by the Stagecoach Inn. Famous for
remote tech session at Werks 11 in Temple, TX. At about
10 am, the sleepy streets of downtown Temple erupted with
the raspy exhaust of Porsches arriving from all directions,
including PCA members from the Hill Country Region.
Michael Baynton and Charlie Sparks coordinated the
adventure to attend a workshop conducted by Army veteran
Julian Avent and his Werks 11 crew.
If you don’t already know about Werks 11,
Julian started repairing, restoring, and custombuilding
Porsches shortly after he got out of the
armed services several years ago.
He chose Temple for its charm and cost of living, but later
realized it was perfectly located between the major metro
areas of Dallas, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, all of
which feature a large number of Porsche owners.
A stroll through the shop excites any gearhead’s senses,
and especially Porsche owners. From a collection of
racing 914s to 912s to air-cooled 911s, there’s eye candy
everywhere. My favorite toy was the slate grey “outlaw” he
built for a client that is personalized to the highest degree.
And not surprisingly, Werks 11 does almost all of the work
in-house. If you haven’t seen their craftsmanship, be sure to
view the videos at Werks11.com.
But it wasn’t just a showroom tour. The tech session
was very informative, providing an education of what to
watch out for when buying an older Porsche, with plenty of
examples in the shop. Julian also talked about some of the
more common modifications that Porsche owners request,
and what factors to consider when upgrading your air- or
being the oldest restaurant in Texas, it provides some of
Temple’s finest cuisine.
What a great day for a road trip to a truly fascinating
In other words...
I had the chance to take the trip down to Temple
with the group and thoroughly enjoyed the drive, the
conversation, the Q&A and the back lot. While we were
looking at the rusted shell of a donor car, something
caught my eye. Something VERY 80’s. As a kid I loved
the factory cars, but something about the shear excess
of the tuner cars held my fascination. Well, here in the
back with all of the other unloved ‘projects’ sat what
appears to be a Rinspeed R69, pictured below. Rinspeed
isn’t exactly reserved and this car is no exception.
Remember that these things sold for $79,000, in 1985!
Based on a 911 turbo, the interior was a thing to behold.
I don’t know what their plans are for the car, but if
you’ve ever wanted a Testarossa AND and an aircooled
911, give Julian a call, I’m sure you can work out a deal.

Porsche Tire Scrubbing
by John Hamilton
photos provided by Paul Moseley
Have you noticed that your Porsche’s front end makes a “chunk – chunk – chunk” noise especially now in colder
weather? Especially while turning when backing up or going forward slowly. Happy to report: this is perfectly normal
in a Porsche (whew!).
Here are the causes:
1. Cold tires. When tires are cold they are less-flexible and therefore more prone to make that noise as they try to
navigate a turn while driving slowly.
2. Wide tires are more prone to the scrubbing effect. Since the inside and outside of the tires have a different radius
while turning, the tire tries to compromise by jumping to make up the difference.
3. Under-inflated tires. While properly inflated tires will still
scrub when cold, they are less apt to scrub if inflated to the
4. Front-end design. Porsche front steering is ingeniously designed
to reduce the turning radius by not only turning the wheels, but
by also angling the wheels as is done on farm tractors, road
maintainers and road levelers. The benefit is a smaller turning
radius at all times (not only when the tires are cold).
That’s it! Now you know the answer to what’s been bothering you.
And you don’t have to pay for getting anything “fixed” on you Porsche.

Maverick Marktpreis: 964 RS America
by Peter Wen
The RS badge has always had a special meaning
for Porschephiles. It stands for “Rennsport,” which
is “racing” in German. The term RS is a huge part of
Porsche’s racing heritage. To commemorate the 20th
anniversary of the iconic 1973 Carrera RS, Porsche
gifted us the RS America (RSA) in 1993.
With only 701 examples produced between 1993
and 1994, this special edition was only available in
North America. Based on the Carrera 2 coupe, the RSA
was all about light weight (and performance). It went
on a strict diet and shed 77 lbs. It offered a minimalist
interior with no power steering, no door pulls, no radio
and no A/C. Only four options were offered: electric
sunroof, Limited Slip Differential, radio/cassette stereo,
and A/C. The rear seats were removed for the 1993
model year but returned in 1994. With so many parts
removed, Porsche actually priced the RSA $10,000
below a fully equipped Carrera 2. That was the last
time Porsche Marketing made that mistake!
Today, RSA is a bona fide Porsche collectible. It is
worth two and a half to three times the cost of a mere

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by author
Well this one was fun! Not often
you get to meet three for the price
of one. The first time we met was
kind of early in the Mavs & Mochas
days when we would get 50-75 cars
and we could fit into a venue the
likes of Snider Plaza in University
Park. It also was a rare appearance
of our daughter Carson attending.
As it turned out, we struck up the
conversation that she was attending
MSU, and next thing you know it
was a connection. As time went on, it
was more often than not that, if you
saw this dad out, his posse of two was
close behind. You may even know
the boys even if you don’t know dad.
The boys are always helping us out,
directing traffic at a M&M, writing
for the magazine, or checking you in
at the Founders Day party.
So here is the next in my series of
“conversations” I would like to share
with you . . .
Landon, Corbin, and Brady Stogner:
Members since 2016,
Owner, Black 2010 997.2 Cab
Bill Kruder: So I know you are not
originally from here; where again?
Landon Stogner: I’m a Texan born and
raised in Wichita Falls; it’s about two
hours northwest of Dallas. Actually
I’m a third generation Wichita Fallian;
never strayed t0o far, having attended
grammar school through college in
basically the same city. Matter of fact
I graduated from the same high school,
Rider H.S., as my dad and aunt (his
sister). My mom graduated from the
crosstown rival (Wichita Falls High).
BK: So you went to Midwestern State
University? Our two girls are graduates.
LS: I did! I started at Vernon College
then transferred to MSU. I started out
thinking I wanted to be a business
major until I took a basic computer
class and I couldn’t get enough. I
quickly changed my focus and went
into Computer Info Systems.
BK: So what brought you to DFW?
LS: That’s where the jobs seem to be.
I was hired by AT&T in the Wireless
Division and was with them for
two years. Then the industry seem
be imploding, with so many being
condensed or gobbled up. As it turned
out, I was caught up in a reduction in
force and was out of work for about six
months. Well, I say out of work, but I
ended up getting a job doing field work;
that is, I was the guy that had to climb
Landon with his boys, Corbin and Brady
ladders and did the home and small/
medium business installs.
BK: So this led you to your Verizon
LS: It did. About six months after losing
my AT&T job I was hired by Verizon
Wireless and 18 years later I’m still there.
BK: And what is that you do again?
LS: Well I’m on the technical side of the
business. I work on the transport design
for what connects between the cell
tower and the data switching center.
BK: Ok Dad - sit back. I need talk to
these two young guys. Corbin you first,
how old are you?
Corbin Stogner: I’m 13 and in 8th grade.
Brady Stogner: I’m 11 and in 6th grade.
BK: What’s your favorite subject?
CS: That would be history.
BS: I like English. We read and research
subjects then have to write recaps.
BK: So Corbin I understand you are
interested in theater?
CS: I am. I started when I was in about
3rd grade; there is this program called
“Little Bit of Broadway” for kids in
grades 3-5. I think that helped me get
the lead roles in our school’s UIL One-
Act Competition play.
BK: Corbin, I hear you are pretty
involved at school too?
CS: I guess so. I’m the 8th grade sports
manager for our school and I assist
each of the coaches. I also work as a
student aid in the school library.
BK: So Brady I hear you play sports?
BS: Yes, I play spring soccer and fall
football through the Flower Mound
Sports Association. Next year I can
start playing on the school teams. You
have to be in 7th grade to do that.
BK: Ok, we know what your dad’s
favorite car is. How about you two?
CS: It would have to be a Mustang or
a Tesla model X; my ultimate car is
the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon.
BS: Mine is a Mustang Bullitt.
BK: So dad, what was your first car?
LS: Ha! It was a 1986 Ford Ranger pickup
my dad found in the newspaper. It
had no paint on the hood and it was
just nasty on the inside. That didn’t
deter me though. Overtime I kind of
restored it and when I was done I sold
it for more than we paid.
BK: So you have a knack for cars.
Where’s that come from?
LS: Well both my dad and grandfather
were pretty hands-on with cars and
I was there lending a hand, holding
the shop light and passing wrenches,
helping change the oil, what ever they
needed help with.
BK: So Landon, why a Porsche?
LS: It goes back to when I was nine
years old. I remember saving up and
bought an ‘88 911 slant-nose model to
build. Then there was the movie Risky
Business with the infamous 928 and
U-boat commander that forever stuck
with me. My dream was the 993 Turbo
which happened to line up with me
becoming driving age. I still have the
framed poster hanging on my wall in
my home office.
BK: And what made you buy the cab?
LS: Well I wasn’t looking for cab. I had
done some research and knew I wanted
a 997 based on my budget. I looked
at two or three others before finding
this one thru Carlink. They had this
California car I inquired about online,
and once they discovered I was local
they said to come over and see it. I got
there and they basically tossed me the
keys and said to take it out and let them
know what I thought. So I did, top
down, wind in my hair (laughing), and
I was hooked on a cab. It took us two
to three days to agree on the price but
that’s history. There were 70k miles on
the car and it recently has become my
daily driver so now I’m pushing 116k
miles with no issues.
BK: Back to the boys. Dad, if you had
to describe their personalities in a word
using only coffee or cars, who’s what?
LS: That’s pretty easy! Corbin is Coffee
and Brady is Cars (and with smiles
across the table the boys concur he
passed the test.)
BK: So Corbin I hear you have big plans?
CS: Well kind of. I want to go to SMU
and get two degrees, one being math.
After college I want to go to culinary
school and open my own business. It
would be a bakery that would be open
in the mornings and then reopen later
for lunch and dinner.
BK: Brady what would you say would
be your favorite Maverick moment?
BS: I think that would be when Debi
(our Social Chair) asked me to write
something on last years All Member
Party. Now that was pretty cool!
BK: and Corbin?
CS: That would be the M&M at
the Frisco Rail Yard. The three of
us along with Robert Kendrick
helped direct traffic. It also when
I really got to know Mike O’Hare
BK: So Brady, I hear you are a bit of
BS: It’s true. I have over 200 Hot
Wheels. It’s a bit of everything but my
favorite is the yellow 996 cab.
So I know what you are thinking. I’m
going to say as I do every month as I
write the interview: what if . . . ? What
if I had not met Landon and the boys?
What if I had not had the chance to get
to know Landon and recommend him
to be our current Volunteer Chair?
So yes, I will say it again. If and when
you meet someone new, someone old,
don’t miss out on “Driving

ROUND TRIP TRANSPORT
My First Porsche
by Jerry DeFeo
(From the editor: This article was first
published in the February 2000 issue of
Slipstream Tom Martin brought to my
attention as a great blast from the past.
Tom provided additional editing to the
It was the fall of 1966 in
Miami, Florida. I was 20 years old,
attending junior college, trying to
keep out of trouble with my Mom,
and raising $91.20 a month to pay
for my ‘65 Pontiac GTO, equipped
with three deuces and a four-speed.
I had noticed a few Porsches here
and there, but in 1966, no street
Porsche could stay with my GTO.
Of course, that referred to quarter
mile runs with my circle of friends.
One of the neatest Porsches I saw
was a ‘63 356B Super 90 convertible
that Skip Ryder (yes, daddy owned
Ryder Trucks) had rolled while
he was still in high school. Well, I
had a job that summer at the body
shop where he had it repaired. Not
only did I get to work on it, I got
to take it out for the test drive. Boy
did I catch hell when I got back 30
minutes later. They did not buy my
reason that I needed to make sure
it handled OK at high speeds. After
all, it had been rolled! But it handled
like a go-kart with a four-speed,
and I was hooked. The shop also
had a ‘63 Jaguar XKE convertible
I had to final test drive about two
Anyway, a friend told me about
a red Porsche he had seen one
morning on the used car lot at a
North Miami Ford dealership.
I went up there and a salesman
showed it to me saying that they just
took it in on trade, and apologized
for not having it cleaned up yet. It
was a faded bright red color and
had a so-so black interior. It also
had some rust (this was Miami
by the sea, you know, salt water
in the air) and in fact every time
one opened the driver’s door, the
bottom three inches of the door
would catch on the body and slide
outside the fender towards the
front wheel. But I had worked for
a body shop - that was when you
could get a reasonable paint job for
$50 - and besides, I had all the time
in the world. The salesman at the
dealership asked if I was 21 (you
had to be 21 to buy a car in Florida
back then), to which I promptly
lied and said “yes”! He was really a
nice guy and was so anxious to sell
a car that day; he offered it to me
for $650 and even said he would
give me a 30-day 50/50 warranty
if anything went wrong. Well the
clutch was already slipping just a
shade so I took the deal. I put down
$5 (yes - FIVE dollars) to hold the
car until I could go get the money
and return. I had some of it and had
to borrow $300 from a friend’s dad
(that is another story).
I returned to the dealer with
the cash and took it to a known
Porsche mechanic in South Miami.
He and I had met before when
I raced against a ’66 427 Cobra
that he had prepared, and beat it
with my ‘65 GTO (also another
story). Anyway, he said that the
car needed a new pressure plate,
clutch disc, throw-out bearing, all
the brake cylinders rebuilt (I did
not know that any cars had two
brake cylinders per wheel), tuneup,
shift linkage bushings, wheel
bearings repacked, and an oil and
filter change. The total: some $355.
(That kind of looks pretty good
today, huh? What do you think, Ed
Mayo?) Well, the Used Car Sales
Manager at the Ford dealer was
not a happy camper. They gave the
original owner $600 as a tradein,
sold me the car for $650, and
then wrote a check to the garage
I selected (since they had no idea
how to work on it) for some $178
so as to honor the 50/50 warranty.
I think they lost! But at 20 years old
I had a great running ‘61 Porsche
356B Normal with a great clutch
and brakes, with about 1/4 of the
driver’s door sliding along the body
every time I got in the car.
I then took the car to my
favorite body shop where they let
me use their tools to remove all the
chrome, bumpers, and interior. I
even got a glass shop to remove and
replace the front and rear glass for
$15 so as to get a better paint job.
I painted it a super bright Porsche
red, or so I thought. That thing
was so ORANGE it would make
any UT alumni proud. To fix the
door, other rust, and paint (I did
the prep work), it cost about $45.
That and some other miscellaneous
goodies, the $15 for glass R&R,
plus the $178 I paid towards the
mechanical, plus the $650, brought
the total investment up to about
$900. Let’s see now, a five-year-old
Porsche (in decent shape) for $900.
Those were the days!
I was still drag racing my ‘65
GTO on the weekends, turning in
the high 13s on street tires through
the mufflers. And I could always
win my “B” Pure Stock class every
Sunday. Well, I should have learned
early on that when you do well,
somebody always wants to bring
you down or insinuate that you
were cheating. But no one would
just come out and accuse me, nor
put up the $65 protest/tear-down
fee, so there was a strip protest (I
tear down for free to prove I was
not cheating). I said I would tear
down for the $65 that everyone else
got, but not for free. They banned
the GTO from West Palm Beach
Raceway! But not before I won the
‘65 and ‘66 Florida State Pure Stock
Championships with a best time of
13.72 seconds at 105.6 mph. And
that was on street tires and through
the stock mufflers.
I couldn’t run the GTO anymore, so what class did
a ‘61 Porsche 356B Normal Porsche run in? Well, first
they said it was a sports car (two seater), but I had seats
for four, so they had to assign me to the class of “0”
Pure Stock, the lowest class. Remember I only had 60
DIN, or about 70 SAE, horsepower in a 1950 lb. car,
which translated to about 28 pounds per horsepower.
My race prep was simple. Show up at the track with
about ½ tank of gas, and pump the tires up to 50 psi.
My racing strategy was even simpler. Be friendly to
everyone, say nice things about their cars, come off the
line at 5000 rpm, and never “red light.” The fact that
I got a 4.5-second head start on the GTOs, 442s, Gran
Sports, etc. was devastating to a lot of the competitors.
Many would red light just sitting there watching me go
down the strip.
This is a good time to add that it was not my driving
ability or any super mechanical tuning skills that won
every week with the little orange Porsche. The fact that
the little car could run at least 0.5 second closer to the
“0” Stock national record than a GTO could to the
“B” Stock record made this car a winner so long as I
did not mess up. It was this neat little car! One that ran
fantastically, time after time, and was never designed to
be a drag racer, needing only the extensive race prep of
airing up the tires to 50 psi. Those were the days!

Dear Tire Guy
Yes! DE season is back upon us
once again and we’re ready for
an exciting 2020.
So for new PCA members, new DE drivers or even
experienced track turners here’s a couple of tips.
1) Tire pressure is one of the most important aspects of
tuning your car for the track. Finding this ideal pressure
for a track typically involves some trial and error: setting
the cold tire pressure based on past experience and then
making small adjustments based on driver feedback.
If you’re just starting out you’ll be just fine maintaining the
OE cold pressure specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
As you move through the next few DE's then it may be
time to start playing with those pressures, altering them
by 1 or 2 psi as you learn the lines.
2) You need the right tires. Race conditions put tires
under FAR more duress than normal road driving, so you
want to make sure you have something with aggressive
grip to keep you firmly planted on the track. If your DE
car is also a commuter you will want something that’s also
road legal and comfortable, something like the Michelin
Pilot Sport 4S. If you want a dedicated aggressive race
set you could look at something like the Michelin Cup 2,
Toyo 888R, or the Nitto NT-01.
We’re looking forward to seeing all the familiar PCA
faces, and getting to meet the new members as well.
If you need tires, you know who to call! (Our number is
right at the bottom, hint hint) Until next month Drive On!

Mavs & Mochas: Southlake Town Center
by Pat Carmichael
photos provided by Jay Miller & Bill Middelton
Oh what a beautiful morning - oh what a beautiful town
square. We’re here in the heart of Southlake on a sunny
Saturday. It really is unique that a suburb created, from
scratch, a town square offering a wonderful place to meet
friends, eat all kinds of food, and shop till you drop. A
place that is more than a place to gather, but also a chance
to look back at an earlier time with trees, walks, fountains,
and Recreation official approached . . . .
To make a long story short, even though we have done
this at the Southlake Square for several years, from here on
out we’re going to have to get a permit. That just requires
a couple weeks advanced registration, pay a fee, sing the
Southlake official song, or something like that. So we just
had to pack up the table, put away the tent, and enjoy the
ponds, and a band gazebo (maybe next year we invite the
high school band to play). Oh, and 140+ Porsche Mavs &
Mochas participants all scurrying to the Starbucks.
The weather cooperated with a really mildly cool day,
although it was sunny and bright. It all started peacefully
enough as the guys were setting up the little pop-up tent
with the table and placing flags. Then a Southlake Parks
rest of the day with each other. Which we did.
The cars were awesome. All variety of models and years,
as well as most of the color spectrum, was represented.
The good thing about the Southlake gathering is it gives
the Tarrant county people a chance to pop over. It was so
good to see some of the westerners there.
All in all another great M&M . . . see y’all next time!

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Disclaimer: I get really geeky this month about some
questionable cars from the past. If the names aren’t familiar,
google them. Seriously, it’s worth it.
In the Tech Session article on page 12, I write about an
old 911 modified by Rinspeed that was sitting out back
watching the world go by. It reminded me of being a kid and
all of the crazy, over-the-top cars that were being made from
911’s in the 80’s and 90’s. The made for Miami Vice cars
from Strosek, Gemballa (I loved the Gemballa Avalanche),
Koenig and more serious cars from DP and RUF were the
things of dreams in those days. It wasn’t just 911’s that were
defiled, many a BMW and Mercedes recieved gull-wing
doors, extra gills and monochromatic paint jobs or ultrawide
fenders. Funny that back then a white interior with
red piping was the way to go, and today black on black
with black everything seems to be the statement. Anyway,
times have changed and we’ve matured. Even RWB looks
restrained when you look at what was being done back
then. But the urge has never really completely passed with
us has it? Take a walk around any of our events and you’ll
see cars customized to the owners’ individual and yes,
sometimes unique tastes. That’s what I love about Porsches.
Most of them aren’t so dear that you expect a letter from the
factory if you change something. And it’s just fun to tinker
and make them yours. In a responsible ‘can be returned to
stock’ kind of way of course.
These days in the world of air-cooled cars, we talk about
Singer and Gunthewerks among others but the story is the
same, a great platform being refined to meet the specific
desires and goals of its owner, whatever that may be.
Speaking of goals, this month is the quarterly can food
drive edition of Mavs&Mochas. Jimmy G, our Charity
Chair, hosts a canned food drive 4 times a year at Mavs &
Mochas to benefit the North Texas Food Bank. Mavericks
have always been generous to this charity and last year
donated over 1000 lbs. of food. Let’s beat that in 2020.
This is a chance to pay it forward and advance NTFB’s
10-year plan to provide access to 92 million nutritious
meals annually by 2025. By donating items like: canned
tuna and chicken, peanut butter, boxed meals, canned
fruit and veggies, canned soup, and rice and beans, we
can help North Texas families feel more secure about their
So pick up some canned food and meet us at RAC.
Don’t forget to...Enjoy the Drive.
