Taycan. Rhymes with icon.

Park Place presents a classic in the making: the new Taycan. 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

iconic Porsche comes equipped with a legendary dealership experience.

That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

I’ve mentioned before that one of the great things

about this club is that we have such a variety of events

for our members, intended to appeal to a wide range of

interests. And there’s also something for a wide range

of Porsches as well. Beyond our official club events and

offerings, there are numerous national and local groups

dedicated to specific Porsche models, such as 356, 914,

924, 928, 944, 968, 993, 986, 987, 996, 997, etc. The

knowledge and assistance of these groups can greatly

enhance the ownership experience of a Porsche that may

be 40+ years old.

About two years ago, I decided I wanted to buy a 928.

I had owned a number of different Porsches over the years

(911, 924, 944, Boxsters, Cayenne), but not a 928 at that

point. I had always admired the design of the 928, but

had never driven one. I knew a Maverick member who

owned a 928, so I let him know I was considering buying

one. I was promptly invited to the local monthly 928

breakfast, where I got plenty of input to start me on my

928 search. As I started looking at potential cars to buy,

local 928 owners were there as a sounding board and to

offer specific advice on what to look for on a 928.

Shortly after buying my first 928, I was running some

errands, came out to start it up . . . nothing. Turning the

ignition key yielded no results, although the car had power

for the radio, windows, etc. So, here I am, sitting in a liquor

store parking lot, in 95 degree weather, with a 37-year-old

Porsche that won’t start. I could have just called Hagerty

roadside assistance and had the car towed, but I was only

a mile from home and didn’t want to give up that easily.

I decided to post a question on the local 928 group

Facebook page, asking for advice. Within just a few

minutes, I had several helpful suggestions. First, check

the ground strap and battery cables. All fine there. Next,

does the horn work? I thought that was kind of odd, but

I checked the horn, and it did work. Then I was told to

2 April

Board Botschaft: Get Specific

by Chris Flaugh, Region Treasurer

MAV OF THE MONTH:

Matt Wilson

unplug the starter relay, unplug the horn relay and plug it

into the starter relay position. I had no idea where these

relays were located, or even where the relay panel was.

About a minute later, a copy of the relay panel diagram was

sent to me, showing exactly where the relays in question

were. So, I swapped the relays, the car started right up,

and I drove home. I own two 928s now, and that’s the only

time either of them have left me stranded.

So, the point of my story is, if you have an older

Porsche, find your people - those who know and love that

same model - it can make a huge difference in how much

you enjoy your car!

Matt has been with the PCA for a little over 10 years now. He is affectionately known as a

member of the Westside, as he’s a resident of Fort Worth. Matt knows that Porsches are meant

to be driven, so crisscrossing the Metroplex for events is no issue for him. Whether he’s driving

his 981 Cayman S or his 997 Turbo, Matt is always there early to help us set up for so many of

our club events. Matt has always been our go-to guy when selecting locations on the west side

of the Metroplex to meet, so it was a wonderful welcome to have Matt step into the Chair

position for our Coffee Meets. There was a high bar already set, as Mavs & Mochas is one of

our most popular monthly events. Matt has taken the wheel and is steering us to another

successful year. We look forward to the upcoming locations he has picked out. Matt doesn’t

stop there; he shifts gear to make sure we continue the “shop talk” at Motoring Mavs at Mayo’s

and Garages & Gearheads. This is yet another shining example for our club staying Fueled By

Volunteers. Please join me in congratulating Matt as our Maverick of the Month.

February Tech Session: The Phoenix Insurance

by Mike O’Hare, Tech Sessions Co-Chair

photos by Michael Baynton

Who would really want to

attend an insurance seminar on

a beautiful Saturday morning?

How about 35 passionate

Porsche owners looking to save,

or gain peace of mind on a

coverage plan that best meets

their individual needs! Well,

that’s exactly what happened on

Saturday February 22, when

Justin Husman and Jason Olson

from The Phoenix Insurance

Company hosted this very

informative Tech Session. The

duo fielded all types of questions

regarding options of coverage,

claims, deductibles, and

premiums. At the end, Phoenix’s

message was simple: find a

coverage plan tailored to meet

your own specific needs, as we

are all different!

Special thanks to Dave Perry•Miller Real

Estate for hosting this insightful tech session.

2020 Maverick Concours Weekend

by Scott Kellogg, Region Concours Chair

In our continuing effort to bring judged car shows

back to the Maverick Region, we will be hosting three

car show events in 2020, to include one Concours and

two People’s Choice events.

This year, we are excited to host a Concours

weekend! Mark your calendar for the May 30-

31 as we bring our Concours to a whole new

level, and invite our friends from Zone 5 too.

Many thanks to our sponsors, Tactical Fleet, Stuarts,

Fifth Gear, Autoscope, Tim Schutz - Allie Beth Allman,

Billie Go Plumbing, Phoenix Insurance, The Lift Doctor,

Innovative Automotive, Schofner Films, and Corsa

Werks, for partnering with us on this event.

The event kicks off with a reception for all registered

participants on the night of May 30 at 6:00 pm. This

will be hosted at Mena’s Grill in Flower Mound and

will include a fajita bar with two drink coupons. The

Concours the following day, May 31, will be at the

beautiful Silver Lake Marina Park in Grapevine. Roll-in

will begin at 7:00 am and the show will officially open at

9:11 am. Once your vehicle is parked in the designated

class area, goodie bags will be distributed at the awards

area. Each registered participant receives a vehicle card to

be placed on the driver’s side dash, a show T-Shirt, and a

show poster, as well as other assorted goodies.

Online registration will open May 1st and available

on the Maverick Region PCA website and social media.

Registration fee for the driver and driver’s vehicle is $50

and includes the Saturday night reception dinner and

drinks, t-shirt, poster, and goodie bag. Registration fee

for passengers is $25 and includes the reception only.

Show shirts may also be purchased following the event

on the Maverick Region website.

We are really excited this year, as there will be a total

of 13 classes, as follows:

• 356

• 911 ‘64-‘73

• 911 ‘74-‘88

• 911 ‘89-‘98

• 911 ‘99-‘12

• Boxster/Cayman

• Panamera/Cayenne/Macan

• GT all years

• Outlaw*

• Race/Competition*

*These classes will require 5 vehicles

The 2020 Maverick Region Concours will be a Show

and Shine event, and is technically a top-down clean

car show. Judges will look at the car’s interior, exterior,

engine and trunk. Judging will be based on cleanliness

and condition only for this show.

Awards will be given to Best in Class for each class,

Best in Show, and President’s Choice.

I am very excited about this new year and the show

events we have planned! I look forward to seeing you all

there for a fun and entertaining weekend on May 30.

that text message from my uncle two years

ago asking if I wanted my aunt’s Cayenne. I’m

be with a group of people who own and love

Porsches will keep me motivated to work hard

enough to buy one on my own in the future.

The Bluebonnet Tour: Preview

by Sam Bryant, Tours Co-Chair

photos provided by Jay Lynch

Our first tour of the 2020 season takes place on

Sunday, April 26. It is the very popular Bluebonnet

Tour that takes place in and around Ennis, Texas. Ennis

was designated by the 1997 State

Legislature as the home of the

“Official Texas Bluebonnet Trail”

and was designated the “Official

Bluebonnet City Of Texas.”

Ennis showcases over 40 miles of

Bluebonnet trails. These trails are

the oldest such trails known in the

state, and tens of thousands make

the short trek to Ennis to view this

wonderful wildflower show.

The Bluebonnet tour starts in Red Oak at the Red Oak

Middle School, 154 Louise Ritter Blvd, Red Oak, Texas 75154,

which is south of Dallas on Interstate 35 in Ellis County. The

destination is 210 South Interstate 45, Ennis, Texas 75119.

The Maverick Executive Board is working closely

with PCA National to monitor the Coronavirus

situation. We are CANCELING ALL INDOOR

EVENTS THROUGH THE END OF APRIL, so the

tour will not stop at the destination.

We have two classes on our tours. Choose Vintage class

for a more relaxed scenic tour, or Modern Class for the same

tour that we have provided in the past. Whichever class you

choose, it is your decision no matter

what type of Porsche you drive.

After you register, and three days

before the tour, we will send you all

the information needed to attend.

We hand out packets the day of the

tour with all the information as well.

The Drivers’ Briefing will begin at

10 am, so please arrive early so that

you are signed in on time. Most tour

attendees arrive early to meet new

friends and socialize with familiar faces. Arriving early

also helps our volunteers get everyone signed in on time

so the tour will be on schedule. No special equipment is

needed. Our Group Leaders will be familiar with the route

and will guide each group of Porsches to the destination.

Volunteers needed. Do you want to lead the pack? We

are in need of your help! You can help by signing in

attendees. Or better yet, would you like to be a Group

Leader? Please contact us at email: tours@mavpca.org

Taycan Introduction at Park Place Dallas

by Tom Stout

photo provided by Paul Moseley

There was quite a “buzz” at

Park Place Porsche in Dallas on

Saturday, February 15. Scores of

Maverick PCA members were

treated to an exclusive unveiling

of the new Taycan. Park Place GM

Patrick Huston gave an enthusiastic

and informative briefing on the

new wheels, and along with his

staff, answered questions from the

coffee and donuts crowd.

Members were given the

opportunity to sit in the seats,

fire up the lights, and watch the

new sleek blue coupe quietly

glide off the showroom floor. One

lucky participant even got the

opportunity to take it for a spirited

Hippity Hop For Hope!: Help Hope Happen

by Bill Middleton

In conjunction with the April

11 Mavs & Mochas, and the

Easter Hop Gimmick Rally on

the same date, Maverick Region

Charities will be holding their first

donation drive!

Huffaker-Hughes Hope House provides much

more than emergency shelter to battered and

abused women and children of North Texas.

Counseling and legal services as well as clothing

and a food bank are among the services your

generous donations help to support.

To best utilize donated

resources, both Hope Charities

and the Maverick Region have

obtained association with

some large hospitality vendors,

who provide all the typical

amenities that are consumed

by the hospitality industry such

as bedding goods, bathroom

goods, personal amenities such

as soaps, shampoo, toothpaste/

toothbrushes, etc.,

and any number of

other goods. Other

items always in

need are gently used

clothing – mainly

for women and kids

– in most any sizes.

Also needed on a

near constant basis

are disposable diapers in just about

any size – but infants and toddlers

preferred. Walmart gift cards are

also very much appreciated, as

it gives the clients at the shelter

the opportunity to pick up small

personal items to help their stay be

a little bit more comfy.

If you would like to “Help Hope

Happen,” please consider bringing

a donation to the April Mavs &

Mochas in the form of plain old

folding cash, gently used clothing,

a pack of disposable diapers, or

Walmart gift cards.

Thanks SO much for

participating in the Maverick

Regions events, and for donating

to “Help Hope Happen”!!!!

If you would like further

information regarding the Maverick

Region charitable organizations,

events to support those agencies, or

to inquire about volunteering,

please contact Jim Gallegos at

charity@mavpca.org.

Autocross Series: Event 1, Lone Star Park, February 23

by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

Early season Autocross events can bring some

interesting weather and this one did not disappoint.

Cold, windy, and even some drizzly rain greeted the

four different run groups which totaled 134 drivers. The

Porsche Team (15 drivers) worked the first session and

drove their six runs in session three, with light drizzle

that did not seem to change conditions very much.

The new 2020 Porsche class breakdowns

seem to be working well. See http://mav.pca.org/

Events/Autocross/2020_MAVPCA_AX_Classes_

Charts_1_10_2020.pdf for car class details. The 15

Porsche drivers in attendance for this event fit into

four classes. We had two Porsche SUVs in Class P0.

Their times were close to each other, but Igor Tulandin

P0 - 'PCA Zero'

(Cayenne GTS) was able to outrun Gagik Farmanyan

(Macan S) by just under a second. Interestingly, Igor

was quicker than seven of the Porsche sportscars, or

nine of them if you look at the Performance Index

(PAX) standings.

Class P1 started out a lot like the prior few years,

with the Ed Mayo 1972 911S and the Schnoerr’s 1974

914 2.0 going after each other and driving times down

each run. Mark, Ed, and Sigrid ended up covered by

just 0.513 seconds and finishing in that order.

Class P2 saw Carey Spreen in his Boxster S just

ahead of two Turbo 996 entries driven by Jeff Hermann

and Holli Coulman, with just 0.456 seconds from 1st

to 3rd place.

Class P3 saw Owen Coulman take

his 996 GT3 to the win over Dawn

Marie Gray in her newly acquired

Cayman S, and Jeff Duncan in his

newly-acquired Boxster S.

For this event, the entrants

completed 780 timed runs, averaging

111 timed runs per hour. The next

events are both at Burleson High

School: May 17 and May 24 (there

are no events in April). Novice

instruction and coaching are provided

at every event. Entries are accepted

on-line (including a pre-registration

discount) or just walk up at the event.

Maverick Marktpreis: 991.1

by Peter Wen

Can 2020 be the Year of Water-Cooled 911s? The

editors at Total 911 magazine certainly think so. In

their “Cars to Buy in 2020” article in issue 189/Mar

‘20, seven out of ten cars featured were water-cooled.

Specifically, they called out 991.1 Carrera/S to be of

“outstanding value for the money.”

The 991.1 was produced from 2012-2016. It was

the last non-turbo 911 generation, and the generation

that blurred the lines between sports car and grand

touring car. Data clearly shows that, compared to the

997 generation, the next generation 991.1 is a better

performance car. The 991.1 is more powerful, more

technologically advanced, has better fuel economy, and

weighs less - all while being a bigger car! It offers a

quieter and more upscale cabin with loads of creature

comforts. It’s a car you can daily-drive and take on long

trips without hesitation.

Since the 991 is the most populous 911 generation,

finding the right one does not present too great a challenge.

My brief search yielded several fine examples that have

depreciated 40~60% from the original MSRP. Truly a

great bargain for a modern, high-performance 911.

991.1 - ’12-‘16 '17-'18 ($k) '18-'19 ($k) '19-'20 ($k)

Base $60-$85 $60-$85 $55-$80

Cabriolet $65-$90 $65-$90 $60-$80

S $70-$100 $65-$95 $65-$90

S Cabriolet $75-$105 $70-$100 $65-$90

Source: Excellence magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide

$RED indicates drop in value from previous year

Fun fact: The 991 was the first 911 generation equipped

with electric power steering (which replaced the

feedback-rich hydraulic steering). Purists such as Richard

Hammond bemoans that “as a result of the change, the

911 is now George Clooney without the twinkle, Cindy

Crawford without the mole”.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

by Bill Kruder

photos provided by author

So every month when I’m sitting

down to visit with someone I am

continually amazed at the people

I get to meet and what they share.

This month I decided to pick some

one that you all “know” well. You

know his work in the club as he

designs all our club and event ads.

For the longest time when he took

this job from Kurt Scaggs, our

Editor, I didn’t even know who he

was. I would email what I needed

and he would with in 24-48 hours

send something back to me. Finally

after months we meet face to face

at a board meeting. Still having no

idea what he drove mind you. As the

months turned into a couple years

now I have gotten to know both

him and his wife and I can tell you

they are what our club is all about.

So here is the next in my series

of “conversations” I would like to

share with you . . .

David Tierney, member since 2016

Owner 1999 911 996 cab

Bill Kruder: So where are you two

from?

David Tierney: I was born and raised

in Elizabeth, 45 minutes from

Pittsburgh, PA, didn’t leave that

area until I graduated college.

BK: And where was that?

DT: I went to California University

known as Cal U. It’s a small school

with about 7K students, and no it’s

not in that California (laughing).

It’s in California, PA which is

only about an hour southeast

of Pittsburgh. I commuted and

worked through college living with

roommates in houses with wheels.

BK: Sounds like a story, but tell me

first what was your degree in?

DT: It’s in Advertising and

Commercial Design.

BK: How did you decide on that?

DT: I always liked to draw and my

uncle had an advertising agency in

Houston. I thought I’d take 5 years

to get a 4-year college degree, move

to Houston and work for him. The

beaches of Florida and quality time

with my brother took me south

instead. All these years later I never

made it to Houston but I did get

the chance to work with him on

freelance projects.

BK: So let’s go back to leaving

Pennsylvania, when and where?

David and Susan Tierney

DT: After graduating, I packed up

everything in my 1974 Ford stepbed

truck and journeyed to Ft.

Lauderdale, Florida to work and

live with my younger brother. For

the next year and half, we were

longshoreman loading cargo ships

at Port Everglades.

BK: Then what?

DT: The next chapter in my life…

the military. Why not, Bill Murray

made it look fun. I had neighbors

in the National Guard and they

talked me into joining the 743rd

Maintenance Unit. It was in Ft.

Lauderdale how bad could it be. So

that’s what I did and needless to say

my civilian career took me west.

BK: So how you did you end up

in Dallas?

DT: I started working for Blockbuster

corporate in Florida that moved to

Dallas, and then my advertising

career moved me L.A., Kansas, and

back to Dallas in 2014. During that

time, I was designing graphics for

Nickelodeon and Viacom Retail

Group then on to some ad agency

work.

BK: And now?

DT: I’m the Creative Director for

Panini America. No, we don’t do

sandwiches (smiling). We are the

world’s largest maker of trading

cards much like Topps, but we do

all the sports worldwide.

BK: I know you are married, how

did you and Susan meet?

DT: It was on my first move to Dallas

in 1998. I was in lower Greenville

celebrating a friend’s birthday.

Well Susan walks over to me and

says, “didn’t we go to the same

high school” and I replied “no, not

unless you’re from Pittsburgh.”

We shared numbers and after the

“how many days to make the first

call” debate with friends, Well I

didn’t have to … Susan called me.

We were inseparable and dated for

about two years and we married

in 2000. We have a son, Shawn

who’s turning 17, a junior in high

school and he would make any

parent proud.

20 April


BK: You mentioned

something about cancer?

DT: Yep, not many people

know I’m a survivor

of Squamous Cell

Carcinoma. It happened

in 2015. I had three

surgeries, chemo, and

radiation, but happy to

say we’ve beaten it this

round and all is good.

BK: Ok first car?

DT: 1974 Chevy Malibu,

my Dad paid $200. I

worked on it everyday during high

school, then I “accidentally” lost it.

Sadly.

BK: First Porsche?

DT: Well heck it’s our 99 911. I

always loved them but figured I

couldn’t afford one until Susan

found this one.

BK: What was you first attraction to

Porsche?

DT: “Who’s the U-boat commander?”

Risky Business! That was the movie

that introduced me to Porsche. That

car was just sensational looking.

BK: So why the 996 cab?

DT: I had been driving a BMW 128

and it was totaled. The insurance

company gave us two weeks with

a rental to find a new car.

Susan started looking and

we found this one from

a private party who was

selling it to pay for his

daughter’s college. We

test drove it, had the car

checked out, and loved it.

BK: So tell me a fun fact

no one knows about you?

DT: Easy! I was an extra

in the movie “Just Cause”

with Sean Connery. They

had me as a hotel bellman.

But my brush with fame

was off camera. Sean Connery

was standing at the concierge desk

between takes and dropped his pen

and I happened to be there and

picked it up and handed it back

(grinning).

And there you have it…Driving

Maverick HPDE Track Days Program: What is it?

by Craig Janssen, Chief Driving Coach

“Floor it!” Mike was riding in my passenger seat as

my driving coach. We were exiting Big Bend corner at

MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, and a long straight was

ahead of us.

Whew. Am I allowed to floor it? We’re doing 70 mph

already! Will I be able to stop at the end of the straight

and make it through the right-hand corner in front of me?

No need to worry; Mike had it handled and guided me

calmly. We made it around the right-hand corner easily

and safely. The hook was set. It was 2004 and I went on

to spend the next 15 years attending, teaching, and now

serving on the leadership team of the Maverick PCA HPDE

Track Days program. My driving skills have improved

exponentially and perhaps even more importantly, I’ve

made fantastic friends along the way and have had an

incredible amount of fun. What started as an exploration

of what a HPDE was became a long love affair with driving

on a racetrack and helping others to learn to do the same.

With over 3,000 members in the DFW area, Maverick

PCA is a large club with a fabulous rage of activities for

members to engage in. I’ve found that many are interested

in our HPDE Track Day program or at least have heard of

it, but don’t really know what it is, how it works and what

to do to get engaged. Here is the insider story.

HPDE is the acronym for High Performance Drivers’

Education. The focus of our Maverick PCA HPDE Track

Days program is to give club members an opportunity

to drive on a racetrack in their street cars, develop their

driving skills and to do this in a safe and awesomely

fun way. We run the Maverick PCA HPDE Track Days

weekend events 4-6 times a year in the DFW area, and our

sister PCA clubs in Houston and Austin run an additional

4-6 events a year.

The vast majority of new attendees to our HPDE

Track Days events have no prior driving experience

on a racetrack and so we have designed the

program to ensure a very easy onramp to the world

of HPDEs. When you sign up, we chat to you about

your driving background and depending on your

level of experience, place you in one of four groups,

ranging from beginner to advanced.

Each group attends classroom training relevant to their

level of experience. For beginner and intermediate drivers,

we always place a highly experienced PCA approved coach

in the right seat to help you improve your driving and help

to keep you safe.

The most frequent question we are asked is “is this

like racing?” The short answer is absolutely not! This is a

driving education program with strict rules of safety and

behavior on the track. Passing among participants in all

but the advanced group, is limited to well-defined “passing

zones” on straight parts of the track, and then only with

approval from the car in front via hand signals. You only

drive as fast as you are comfortable driving or as fast as

your driving coach feels is safe. There is no pressure to be

the fastest on track and there is no “winning.” Our HPDE

Track Days program is entirely about helping you to learn

to be a better driver, having fun, and making new friends.

There is no level of prior experience required to attend

our Track Day events, although a desire to learn new

driving skills is essential, as is a desire to have a lot of fun.

And perhaps a willingness to be humbled as you learn how

much you don’t know! While many of our participants

drive Porsches ranging from Macans to GT3s, we welcome

all types of cars and you will also see Miatas, Corvettes,

and Mustangs.

We are passionate about what we do at Maverick

HPDE Track Days and get a HUGE kick out of introducing

people to the track and helping them to become better

drivers. Our HPDE Track Days programs are tremendous

fun, but don’t take that from me. Listen to what some of

our HPDE Track Day attendees say about the program:

“I was a bit intimidated to sign up as I had never been to a track and

couldn’t sleep the night before due to anticipation. However, upon

reaching the track I began to realize there were a lot of people just

like me... NEW. My instructor Peter made all of that go away and it

was THE most exhilarating, challenging, incredibly awesome thing

I have ever done. The two days are worth your time and money. I

marked my calendar for the next registration so I wouldn’t miss

the March event. Sign up and - even if it’s not for you - at the

end of the weekend you will be a better driver of your Porsche.”

- Matt

“It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life”!

- Max

“I can’t say enough about my instructor Toby. He was

excellent, a great teacher and coach”

- Joe

You can find out more information about our HPDE

Track Days program at http://mav.pca.org/Events/

HPDE/. If I can answer any questions, please reach out

to me at cdi@mavpca.org or to Renee and Keith at de@

mavpca.org.

Feel free to drop by any of our events to come look at

the cars, watch us drive, and ask questions. You don’t

need to register if you are not driving on track; just show

up, come find us and say hi.

Winter Doldrums

by Robert Turner

LMNHED (aka) my Racing Yellow 981 Cayman

S must think it’s Groundhog Day. It sits in the garage

gathering dust; different day, same routine. Wake up,

sit there. Mid-day, sit there some more. Sundown? Still

sitting there! Only difference is the amount of ambient

light in the garage. Day after day the bright yellow

Porsche sits in contrast against the stark (newly painted)

white wall. Rinse and repeat. The only variation is the

overall temp in the garage. This is winter in Texas after

all; it could be 70° one day and 22° with freezing rain

three days later.

I do have a routine: if the car goes three weeks

without getting started, I put a battery tender on

it. Oh, there’s the occasional break – for instance,

Mavs & Mochas on the second Saturday of every

month, rain or shine, hot or really cold. I must admit

LMNHED is a fair-weather Mavs & Mochas attendee

– we’ll do cold, but no rain (and it goes without saying

no snow) – which so far has not been a threat. If, by

some weird twist of North Texas weather fate, we ever

have snow, I will for sure bring the Cayenne Diesel

out; that car is built for crappy weather! So, on the

odd sunny Saturday during the winter we head out

to commiserate with other Porsche owners. It is a

great event with a great vibe with great cars and their

owners. You get the picture.

I keep thinking that spring is imminent. After all,

on this year’s actual Groundhog Day, the infamous

Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow. That means

that spring is right around the corner, right!? LMNHED

is counting on it. (Remember the “gathering dust”

part I mentioned earlier.) What LMHNED counts on

is a day above 60°, a little bit of sun, and an afternoon

with no plans; well with the exception of maybe

drinking a malted beverage – or two – and the CAR

WASH. Trust me, LMNNED doesn’t need it, but I love

washing cars. It’s one of my favorite things to do.

I have a wash routine. Griot’s car wash, a special

wash mitt from Chemical Guys, and a stack of Chemical

Guys’ soft and plush purple microfiber towels. Every

surface is wiped free of water, and then the details:

wiping every tiny edge. Free of water, LMNHED

drives the whole 20 feet back into the garage. Then I

clean the barrel and outside surface of every wheel. It is

during that process I find something. (Hey! You knew

there had to be a reason for this column, right?) I felt

the grooves of the super sticky Michelin Super Sport

S4 rear tires. They had a build date of late 2017, but

were already down to the wear bars. Crap! Actually, I

love buying tires. So, a visit to my local Discount Tire

is imminent.

So, I’m really looking forward to spring. The season

of renewal, everything green again. Well, excluding

the yellow pollen, but LMNHED hides it well. As if it

ever gets that dirty.

My wife and I are planning a spring trip to the

Texas Hill Country, a chance to celebrate spring, drive

the Three Sisters (Ranch Roads 335, 336, and 337),

my 60th (OUCH) and our 30th anniversary. (YEAH,

my wife said I better say that). But mostly we’ll enjoy

each other’s company during the best time of the year.

The tires? Time to break them in!

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

At the risk of stating the obvious, these are strange

times we’re living in today. It’s an election year and that

always ramps up the strange, but we’ve got a lot of stories

vying for our attention and fear and outrage. Well, this

will not be one of them.

I usually have a pretty good idea what I’m going to

share with you before I sit in front of the keyboard and

start pecking away. Tonight is not one of those times, so

let’s go on a trip together. Where you might ask? No clue,

we’re just going to see where this road leads.

Have you ever done that? Gotten in your car with no

particular place to go but a worm in your brain that you

need to entertain? Or forget? I certainly have. Growing

up outside of New Orleans we weren’t blessed with the

topography of the Hill Country, but we did have roads

passing through acres of tall pine trees that let the light

filter through just so. Two lane roads with ditches on

either side that demanded concentration if taken at speed.

These were the perfect places to put your worries on the

back burner and become Hans Stuck or Derek Bell. I

believe I’ve mentioned in the past that I’ve always had

an appreciation for Porsche. I just haven’t always had a

Porsche, so these roads were carved in my trusty japanese

companion, a 1985 Honda Accord hatchback. And if you

squinted in just the right light... it was still a 1985 Honda

Accord. But it was mine and that’s all that mattered.

I still feel that way, except now I realize what I’d been

missing and didn’t even know it. It wasn’t the power or

control that comes in vehicles from our favorite marque.

(my Honda had neither by the way) Rather, it was the

chance to share it with like minded folks after the drive.

That’s my favorite part of the club, and has become one

of my favorite parts of the drives too. In these days of

weirdness and division, we can get together around

something that each of us in the club can agree on. But the

cars merely get us together. They aren’t the focus at the

weekly coffee meet up I attend, they are just the catalyst.

That and the caffeine I guess.

PCA’s slogan is “It’s not just the cars, it’s the people”.

Never has that been more true for me. I hope it’s true for

you too. These things are great, but they don’t call to

check on you. They are very patient, non-judgemental

listeners if you’re so inclined, but that might be sharing

too much. Think about calling a buddy and finding a

good road or just chat about cars, it will clear your head.

Whatever you do, stay connected and enjoy the drive.
