Let’s see - it’s been three months since I last wrote
a message, or I should say “Botschaft.” Last we spoke
I had just taken over as President, I had presided over
my first Board meeting, and was just trying to sort out
what exactly I was suppose to do. Well with the help
of our Past President, David Robertson, and many of
our chair people we managed, and it appeared we were
off to another great Maverick year. Then it seems, with
a tap of the brakes, then a full slam, things came to
a halt as COVID-19 began to run over our lives and
schedules. We began watching the national and local
news more than driving our cars, and had to make the
difficult decisions on what to cancel and postpone. We
are all disappointed that we can’t be out enjoying our
friendships over coffee, at the track, on a rally, or driving
on a tour, but it’s for the well being of our members that
we have tried to stay in front of this spreading virus and
keep everyone driving friendships safely.
This being said I do want to thank several people for
their efforts in scrambling to cancel or postpone some
of our events:
Bill Orr for making clear communications regarding
cancellations and postponements to the club look
Kurt Scaggs for making all the 11th hour Slipstream changes;
Debi Kruder and Sam Bryant for their efforts in
moving our 400+ All Member Party and Tour with all
its moving pieces to August 16;
Renee Hayden, Keith Olcha, and Craig Janssen for
moving not one but two HPDE events;
And Scott Kellogg for his efforts in moving our first
ever Porsche Concours Weekend to this fall, September
26 and 27.
Needless to say nearly every chairperson involved with
our monthly events jumped in and we thank you all.
Well enough of the disappointing news! What has
been fun is to see how active so many of us have been
Board Botschaft: Flashback Friday
by Bill Kruder, Region President
Finally, I want to thank and give recognition to our
numerous advertisers in Slipstream. The Maverick Region
has the privilege of partnerships with a wide variety of local
businesses, many of which are still open. We encourage
you to consult our magazine to find the best in class in our
Metroplex when you or your vehicle has a need.
on social media. Nearly every day someone has started
a theme like “Big Wing Wednesday“ or “Flashback
Friday.” We have had a couple virtual car shows; some
have shared their version of a Happy Hour or in some
cases pictures of past events remembering the good ole
Maverick days. Last but not least, Debi and I figured
out how to use FaceTime Live (well kind of) in lieu of
the April board meeting. I think our production was a
tad like Wayne’s World.
Well rest assured, as they say, this too will pass,
and when it does, we will be back, with little or no
hesitation, creating fresh ideas, adding
back your familiar favorites, and I’m sure
a lot of “impromptus,” as I’m certain our
cars miss the gatherings as much as we do!
Your club thanks you for your patience
through these challenging times and we
look forward to seeing you all soon.
Meanwhile, we wish you and your family
to be safe at home enjoying your driveway!
Hey, that would make for some more fun
Facebook images too.

MAV OF THE MONTH:
Michael has been a PCA member close to seven years now. He has always
been on the top of the list of volunteers helping out ANYTIME our club
events have a need. You may be familiar with Michael’s work as a Co-Chair
for our Club’s Tech Sessions. Michael will be the first to tell you that it takes
an entire “pit crew” when it comes to putting on a successful Tech Session.
Now that is true, but we want to give credit when it’s due, and that surely is
the case here. Michael has found so many great technical topics during these
sessions, whether it’s under the hood for maintenance and performance, or
protecting our beauties with ceramics, films, and yes, even insurance policies.
The club’s advertising host and selected venues just add to the record turn
outs. Michael has even gone as far as coordinating joint Tech Sessions with
our PCA friends from the Hill Country Region at a Porsche-only shop
specializing in repair, maintenance, and full restoration in Temple, TX. We
can’t wait until the next session pops up on our calendars. If you needed any
more examples of how our club stays Fueled By Volunteers, this it. Please join
me in congratulating Michael as our Maverick of the Month.

ZONE 5 REP
by Brian King
In 1986, I attended a very memorable car show at the
State Fair of Texas in Dallas. As my father walked around,
enamored with the various cars and trucks, I made him
stop at the Porsche display. My eyes got bigger as I looked
upon those beautiful cars. There was this odd shaped 928
with a strange rear end. I saw a sleek 911 that screamed
“coolness.” My father reminded me about their practicality
and reliability. Still, I would not leave the showcase that
day without those brochures so I could frame them on my
bedroom wall. I made sure to get two of each, one set to
proudly display and one to review daily for years to come.
The wall of my bedroom in the late ‘80s and ‘90s held
a special place in my heart. Those cutouts of the ‘86 911
and 928 faded to framed pictures of a 1982 911 930 Ruf
“Slant Nose” and a 1980 930 Martini Turbo. My other
friends had pictures of Sonny Crockett’s white Testarossa
or the black Daytona. When those guys would ask why I
did not adhere to their way of thinking, I would always
say, “I am just a Porsche guy.”
In 2005, I met Nikki, my best friend and the love of
my life. We were married in 2008 and we had a little boy
named Colton. The dream of owning the once cool sports
car faded as I focused on family, furthering my education
and working hard to give them a remarkable life. It is
funny how time changes your perspective of what is truly
important. We found out that you sacrifice so much more
than dreams when you become a parent.
Before I knew it, almost a decade had passed us by.
It was 2017 and we were slowly creeping up on our 10-
year anniversary. During that time, Nikki gave up her
lucrative career as a master hair colorist to take on the
role of dedicated mother, wife, and volunteer at Colton’s
elementary school. We live in the closest house to the front
door of his school. Most of Nikki’s time was spent at the
school giving her time to the teachers. She believed in the
investment of others. If ten minutes of her time helped out
those incredible educators, it was time well spent.
At that time, I was driving a Lexus GX and my beautiful
wife had a Lexus sports car as well. We had become a “Lexus
family.” In December of 2018, my wife’s lease car was
coming due and she told me that she wanted a convertible
911, something fun and something stunning. She wanted
to break out of her shell and essentially be the woman
that she had always been, a diva at heart, and something
so much more than the “domestic goddess” that she was
for our family. “A Porsche!!” I started talking about that
cool “slant nose” once again, but I knew that she needed
something newer and would not be happy with a “classic.”
We started to test drive all Porsche cars that were
suitable. We drove the Panamera first: “too much of a
mommy car for me,” she exclaimed. “It is fast, but her
photos provided by author
butt is too big,” she said with her typical cheeky charisma.
The Porsche Cayenne brought the same response. Happily
we moved on to the coupes. We drove the Spyder next. I
really wanted her to say “yes” to this car as I was living
a vicarious moment. She loved it, but she did not like
the fact she had to put the top down by herself and there
was no room for a third person. I rolled my eyes, but
was honestly impressed with her driving skills. She kept
that thing at 5,000 rpm with no problem and handled the
manual like a backup driver for the F1. There was such
vigor in her driving; I loved it. She joked, “I am going to
jail for sure if we buy this one, babe!”
We moved on to a Carrera 4S Cabriolet. That was
the one. She could put the top down with the flick of her
could ride in the
back, and we
had plenty of
room. It made
us both tingle
when we drove
it. We decided
we would wait
till the end of
2018 to get
it. We already
and could not
wait to turn her
current car in so
we could put a
sparkle in the
eyes of all three of us.
There is an old adage: “Never take anything for
granted and to count your blessings.” Well it is true.
Much to my dismay, Nikki passed away on March 7 of
2018, leaving me with a great hole in my heart. She had a
double aneurysm at only 31, unexpected and completely
shocking to our family. Heartache. Pain. Sorrow. Tears.
All of those words do not describe what I felt that first
year. I lost my soul mate, the one girl that was my life,
my partner in everything, my one true love. Each day was
met with insurmountable agony, whether it be physical or
emotional. I did not think I was going to make it through.
Despite the fact that my spirit was crushed, Colton kept
me going. Without him, I would still be wandering around
in that fog that consumes you when you experience that
kind of loss.
One year later, I snapped out of it so that I could once
again face reality. Colton reminded me about “mom’s”
car as we had just returned her lease car. “You promised
her a Porsche and I think it will make us both happy” he
stated with her same playful look . I decided to shake the
depression off, fulfill our dream, and her desire as well.
For the two of us, this would be a new adventure, one
that Nikki could look upon us and smile about.
For spring break in 2019, we rented a Carrera S
Cabriolet and drove to NASA, and then on to Galveston.
I was instantly hooked. That 911 was amazing! We
had the top down, cruising at 90 mph, but that car was
begging to get up and go. That was the ride that changed
our minds about where we were heading in our new life
together. We were hand in hand that day and he said,
“Can we do this forever daddy?” The tears started to
roll, but I knew we had to make this permanent.
Although I loved the Carrera, I started to look for a 981
Boxster. The rear trunk made more sense for us. I really
wanted the flat 6 in either platinum or GT silver. We searched
of Nikki. He had a look of exhilaration. It made me realize
that we made the right decision. I told him that he had to
give her a name. He said, “We should call her ‘Kiki’ after
mommy. And so it shall be. Our little silver spirited German
Fräulein shall be named “Kiki” to remind us of “our girl.”
We completely revamped our garage to make it something
more fitting to hold our dream car. We decided that Colton
would build the big Lego cars and proudly display them
to the world in Plexiglass, showing his masterpieces. On
weekends, we hand wash “Kiki,” but we do it together as
a team. We “take pride in our ride” just like my father
taught me when I was his age. We still talk about Nikki,
battling back and forth about how fast she would have
driven “Kiki.” He would say, “She would have floored it
dad and you would have been paying for a lot of tickets!”
I love to drive with him. We put the top down and enjoy
the wind blowing in our hair. We listen to her playlists
and think about how much she meant to us. Occasionally,
across the United States and finally found one in Florida.
I have learned the difficulty of purchasing a Porsche in a
specific color with the exact specifications you desire. It is
almost impossible, but when you find it, it’s all worthwhile.
The day it arrived, my mother-in-law, Cindi, and I
watched it being driven off of that transport truck. Cindi
has not only been one of my biggest supporters in life, but
truly a best friend to experience the joys and pains of life
together. Although we were doing back flips, we both had
small tears in our eyes. We knew that this was a fulfilment
of dreams for both Nikki and myself even though Cindi
and I were minus one of our musketeers. When I drove the
car away for the first time, I found that I was reaching for
the passenger seat, longing for Nikki’s hand once again.
As I pulled up to Colton’s school, it was memorable to
see a little boy run around that car five times screaming like
he won the lottery. Colton and I did the happy dance as we
got “our girl’s” dream car. The joy in his eyes reminded me
we will hear that song that creates the need to hit the
5,000 rpm. The random tear in my eye makes our family’s
dream worth the idea of living for the moment. “Kiki”
never lets us down! The thrill in my son’s eyes reminds me
that Nikki is in that Boxster with us.
The best part of owning a Porsche, besides enjoying it
with Colton, is the friendship and fellowship of PCA. I
have come across some of the most amazing individuals
on this journey and I am very thankful to be part of this
camaraderie. I never thought that owning a Porsche
meant I would be able to be part of a remarkable family
of friends and such a phenomenal group. We are very
grateful to be part of your world!
I drive a Porsche because it reminds me of Nikki, a life
worth honoring. It gives me a little piece of joy, an
appreciation of today and a hope for tomorrow. I consider
myself to be very fortunate. “Live life at 5,000 rpm!” –

The PCA Playground
by Brady Stogner, Region PCA Juniors Liaison
photo provided by author
Welcome to another edition of The PCA Playground;
sadly, like many other places here lately, there hasn’t been
much playing going on. Our fun has been interrupted by
this COVID-19 issue. I know it’s safer for everyone to
stay at home, but I really miss going to all of the club’s
events. I can’t wait for things to get back to normal.
Not only has this gotten in the way of our Porsche
fun, but it has also disrupted schools. This has been the
longest Spring Break I can remember. Unable to go back
to school and not seeing my friends and teachers has been
different. There’s even a possibility of not getting to go
back at all this school year. I’m now in my second week
of home-school and it can be hard for a middle school
student. Mainly because it is hard to stay focused and
pay attention to what assignments I need to be doing.
Thankfully with the technology we have I’m able to do
school online with emails, videos, chat rooms, and web
conferences. It makes me feel like my dad when he works
from home, but instead all I want to do is play video
games and watch movies.
To add onto this craziness, I can’t go out to eat or go
anywhere in public because of SOCIAL DISTANCING.
The only person I would want to stay six feet away from
is my brother . . . sometimes. I hope things can return to
normal soon because it’s sad to hear that people are losing
their jobs and some stores may go out of business.
but I can’t
around the neighborhood block on my bicycle. I will
continue to do my part and pray that everyone stays safe
and healthy. I know we will all be having fun and laughing
together again before we know it. This hasn’t been a fun
time for kids and grown-ups, but let’s keep our chins up
and next time we will have fun things to talk about. Until
then, I’ll see you on the playground.

I’m a sucker for old things, collections, humor and Porsche. What do you know, Slipstream has been around a
while, published every month, and occasionally has articles on the topic of Porsche. Lucky for me UNT has done the
hard part for me and I didn’t have to go through dusty boxes in my attic. I’ve picked out some of my favorite snapshots
of Slipstream, it’s contributors and advertisers for you. I hope you enjoy.

Xtitch Auto: A Local Shop for Convertible Top Repair
by David Tierney
As member of PCA, I am excited to own my first Porsche, a
1999 911 Cabriolet, and every day is a great day to drive. I want
to share my experience with Xtitch Auto Interiors.
It was Monday August 26, the hottest day in 2019, with
a temperature of 103 degrees. At the end of my work day, I
walked to my car and noticed that my rear window had peeled
away from the canvas top. The old canvas couldn’t survive the
My next reaction was to get it fixed. My first choice was
to call Mayo Performance in Euless; they do great work and
installed my lifetime IMS bearing, worry-free and guaranteed.
They recommended Enrique from Xtitch Auto Interiors in
Euless, which specializes in interior/audio upgrades and
modifications, and can restore the interior of your favorite daily
driver, personalize your new car, or build a show-quality, oneof-a-kind
My first phone conversation with Enrique
was professional and knowledgeable. He
met me at his shop and I learned a lot about
my Porsche. I found out that my glass rear
window canvas top was not the original - the
top had been replaced by the previous owner.
Enrique walked me through all the various
types of canvas tops, colors, and glass or plastic
windows. I decided to go with the inset glass
rear window, and matched the factory color.
Because the old top was not the original, I also had to replace
the interior headliner to fit my new top. Overall, everything
turned out better than expected. It was well worth the price,
which included a lifetime guarantee on the glass window. In my
research, some places charged almost as much as I paid, just for
the glass rear window top alone. I highly recommend Xtitch Auto
(www.xtitchcustoms.com) for any interior or canvas top repair
or replacement. Their work is professional and flawless.
Low 60-degree temperatures but overcast and
extremely windy conditions greeted everyone at Lone
Star Park in Grand Prairie, TX on Sunday, March 8.
There were 15 Porsche drivers out of a total of 115
entries, with an average of 115 timed runs per hour.
This event was run in a Pro-Solo format, using a
and 60-foot split
times. With this
system, once a
car is staged,
two white lights
on the top of the
tree are turned on
by the position
of the front tires.
The timer starts
and three yellow
lights count down
to the green
light. Most quick
drivers begin the
the third yellow
light and never
even see the green
light, but if you
leave too early a
red light comes
on and your time
does not count. If
you leave too late,
you just added
time onto your
actual time on

Autocross Series: Event 2, Lone Star Park
by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
Dawn Marie Gray in her new Cayman S getting back in the game
how well you launched and put the power down as you
start each timed run. Just enough revs, accurate clutch
release, and just a tiny bit of wheel spin is best. Some
launch-control PDK type cars bring other new variables
to the mix to make all that magic happen exactly on
demand. A perfect reaction time is 0.500 seconds. It
takes that long to roll out of both the staging lights. Any
quicker means a false start, but any time longer is called
“sleeping at the light.”

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 Turbo S
by Peter Wen
Face Melting. Urban Dictionary defines it as “The
condition in which, due to an extreme exposure to an event
of epic Awesomeness . . . , one loses all perception of space
and time including . . . a brief lapse in physical awareness.”
Face Melting is the perfect metaphor for the euphoria you get
when you are behind the wheel of a 911 Turbo S. With its
opulent interior, brutal acceleration, and astronomical price,
Turbo S is the ultimate 911.
In Porsche nomenclature, Turbo is reserved for the top-ofthe-line
halo cars. It has the best of everything Porsche has
to offer. Turbo S takes that to the next level. With higher
performance, exclusive details, and very limited production
years, Turbo S is indeed a special car for discriminating buyers.
Turbo S was introduced in 1997 to wide critical acclaim.
With only 345 examples produced (and 180 going to the US),
it was a collectible from day one. The 996 and 997 versions
are both highly sought after as well for their performance,
styling, and value. These two generations propelled the 911
into the supercar arena. They blurred the line between
performance and grand touring cars. The 996 gen has
increased in value over the past couple of years. The 991 gen
Turbo S represents the best bargain today. Some of these
“newish” legit supercars can be had for 40% off the original
MSRP and still be covered under Porsche warranties!

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by author
With COVID-19 affecting our daily
lives, I decided it best to share this
month my favorite CC&C. So much
has happened since it was written. As a
matter of fact, I would venture to say that
about 800-1,000 of our members are new
since it was originally published. Sadly,
we lost our friend Bob just over a year
ago. He was 84. My first “conversation”
with Bob was in September 2016. I had
never met him but when I decided to start
the monthly piece, then called Kruder’s
Cars & Conversation, I looked in our
records for the oldest club member and
Bob popped up. Bob joined PCA in 1960;
he was the member with the longest
uninterrupted membership, starting in
the Rocky Mountain Region. Needless
to say I had no idea who this man was.
I called him and suggested we meet for
coffee. Well the gentleman that
he was said “of course” but the
humble man warned me . . . he
didn’t understand why I would
want to meet him. Let’s just say it
was a friendship that was meant
to be, and fair to say it was one
that I wished would have lasted
a lot longer. Since our first
meeting on that hot July day we
would meet for coffee every few
months following, and that bond
kept growing. As time went on I
got to know his son Drew, who
confirmed not only was his dad
humble but his dad was also the
sweetest man you would ever know. Not
just to his family but also to his friends,
employees, and customers a like.
Matter of fact, Debi and I were lucky
enough to purchase his last personal
Porsche, the 1964 356C. Then, the
following year we decided to purchase a
914. One day, Robert Kendrick, who was
helping in the search, found a 1971 on
EBay, and after sorting thru all the pics
Robert said, “You won’t believe this!”
The 914 was from Hagestad Porsche Audi
in Denver! With that alone, I said, that
car is mine. We bid that day and won. So
as fate would have it, we now have two
So here it is what in was the first of a
series of “interviews” that I would like
to share with you . . .
Bob Hagestad, owner 1964 356C,
member since 1960
Bill Kruder: Bob, you have been a
member of PCA longer than almost
anyone in Maverick Region. What year
did you join PCA and why?
Bob Hagestad: Well, really I kind of
joined by accident. My dad had a VW
dealership in Cheyenne, Wyoming and
he wanted to open another. However,
VW said that they would let him have
another but it had to be in Denver. Then
as an extra incentive they said, “We will
give you a Porsche dealership also.”
Bob and his 1964 Porsche 356.
Needless to say, we moved. Once we
opened our mechanic said, “We need
to race one of these.” And we did! We
took one off the showroom floor and
took the SCCA driving school, which
I guess at the same time signed us up
BK: So this was 1960 then?
BH: Yes, think in the fall. Funny thing
was once we had taken the car off the
showroom floor we simply returned it
when we were finished, like nothing
had happened. Not sure I could get
away with that today.
BK: Wow! And to think PCA was only
around for five years at that point, and
Maverick Region wouldn’t even be
founded until 1962.
BH: Well like I said, we joined because
we had just acquired the dealership and
thought it might be fun to do a little
racing. Of course I had no idea back then
I would have moved here years later.
BK: So you come from a car-guy family then?
BH: I do. I didn’t mention that before my
dad started selling VWs, he had a Lincoln-
Mercury dealership. I actually worked
as a salesman for him. I think that was
1957, but I was terrible. Think he told me
I needed to find another profession.
BK: Well how did that work out for you?
BH: Funny how things work out, but
about 1968-69, VW and Porsche came
back and said “We want you to separate
VW from Porsche.” And to do
that they would add in Audi so
we could have a Porsche+Audi
store. Apparently my dad
hadn’t given up on me yet, so
he worked out a deal in which
he would sell VWs if I would
take the other “slower selling”
cars. So that’s what we did. We
opened up a new dealership.
BK: So how did you end up in
BH: About 1987, VW asked
if I would help establish a
dealership here. I didn’t want to move,
so for about three to four years I would
go back and forth. Then about 1991-92,
I took over Metro VW in Irving and was
an active partner ‘til I retired in 2011.
The Hagested Volkswagen dealership.
BK: Now tell me what was your first Porsche?
BH: Really don’t have just one “first” because we would drive
which ever we felt like off the showroom floor; kind of brings a
smile to my face to think about that.
BK: What do you own now?
BH: I have a 1964 Dolphin Gray 356C.
BK: Is this one off the showroom floor?
BH: Oh no, I bought this one in 1984 from a couple in Denver
who had gone to Europe, bought the car in Paris, and drove it on
vacation over there. They then brought it back and enjoyed it for
another 19 years. They put 80,000 miles on it.
BK: How many miles does it have on it now?
BH: I’ve only put another 9000 miles on it since 1984.
BK: What an incredible journey you have been on, with some
of the best cars in the world.
BH: Not bad I guess. But you don’t want to hear about my racing?
BK: So you continued to race? Not just club races?
BH: Oh, that was only the beginning. We bought the 904; I think
only two were here in the States. We raced it in ‘64 at the 250-
mile Daytona Continental, in which we finished fifth. This was
really the start of my professional racing, actually getting paid.
BK: We’ve talked about an RSR – how did that come about?
BH: In 71 several of us went to Monte Carlo and stopped at
the Porsche factory to look at a new car they were trying to
sell; they had to sell fifty before they could race them. As it
turned out it was the ‘72 RSR. I think I managed to get them
to sell it to me for about $18k.
BK: And how did that work out?
BH: I brought it home and wrecked it in a practice run. So
Peter Gregg had another car as a spare but it was painted in
his livery so he sold it to me.
BK: Peter Gregg like in Brumos?
BH: That would be the guy alright. Trouble was, we couldn’t
race in his livery, so we bought what is like floral kitchen contact
paper and covered up his scheme. That was at Elkhart Lake.
BK: How long did you race the RSR?
BH: We raced the RSRs from about ‘73-‘77. I had some pretty
good drivers driving for me and with me.
BK: Anyone we would know?
BH: Let’s see: Skip Barber, Jerry Jolly, John Paul, and Hurley
Haywood. I might be forgetting someone, but these guys were good.
BK: Something tells me there is more . . .
BH: Yep! Then about ‘76-‘77 (I can’t remember for sure), we
bought our 934 turbo. Think we paid about $50k back then
for it, which was a lot, trust me. Hurley Haywood drove for
me in all the one-hour races and I co-drove with him in the
endurance races; we had some pretty good success in it.
BK: And there’s the 935 too?
BH: Well it was really a 934 that was converted to a 935,
which they referred to as a 934.5 in those years. That was in
‘78 when we started at the 24 Hours of Daytona but DNFd.
But then we came back at Sebring and led the race until we
lost our brakes, but managed to come in second.
Wow, and to think that I was only coming over to talk about
some guy’s “tub” car!

Mechanical Musings: Why Do Brakes Cost So Much?
by Ed Mullenix
Porsche’s brakes are notoriously
expensive. The brake system
performance has to match the
engine and suspension performance.
We are talking a basic 997 Carrera
with conventional brakes, not
the carbon-fiber discs and yellow
calipers, which are ozone-layer
expensive, but they are racetechnology
derived and will shove
you against the seat belt when you
mash on the middle pedal.
The material used on
conventional brake pads is a ceramic
compound, sometimes with copper
particles that somewhat resemble
cement, included to dissipate heat.
The brake system is an “energy
convertor” converting mechanical
energy, vehicle speed, and inertia
into heat energy when you apply the
brakes. The engine is also an energy
convertor converting chemical
energy (combustion of fuel) into
mechanical energy to propel the car.
There are several aftermarket
suppliers of Porsche-suitable brake
components, from your local
Porsche dealer (which is probably
the most expensive option) to places
like AutoZone or NAPA. Also an
option are wholesale suppliers to
the repair industry, which include
the original equipment supplier
brands and several other lower-cost
brands. My personal choice is the
OEM brand (Jurid, ATE, Brembo,
or Pagid). The type of car determines
which brand is available for that
application. I will NOT use brake
pads from places like AutoZone.
Included is a photo of an economy
brand brake pad that sheared in
two. The fact that the brake disc
had a pronounced lip on the outside
edge kept the sheared section of pad
from being ejected out of the caliper
and possible accident when the
pedal would have gone completely
to the floor.
Another controversy is brake disc
or rotor replacement. The
cast iron discs will erode
away material just as the
pads do. Typically, around
45k miles, the front discs
will have sufficient erosion
to produce a pronounced
lip at the outside edge of
the disc and develop a
contoured surface. This
interferes with the new
pad, which has
a perfectly flat
surface. A new
pad installed with
a seriously worn
disc will allow
only the inside
and outside edges
of the pad to
contact the disc,
Eventually, in 200
miles or so, the
pad will conform
to the old disc but
the results could
be disastrous if
you had to panicstop
pad had seated to
It is my
that the dealer
will try to
convince their customers to replace
the discs every time they replace
the pads. This is partly because
of liability exposure and partly
to pay the light bill. I try to be
judicial about replacing discs. A
slight lip and a minor contouring
is acceptable because the discs are
crazy expensive and the new pads
will seat in just a few miles. If you
live in Park Cities, where there is a
stop light or stop sign every other
block, it is not uncommon to need
front pads every 15k miles. The rear
pads seem to last a little longer.
Porsche has pad wear sensors on
each corner. If the pad wear message
or light comes on, usually there is
sufficient material for you to drive
another 500 miles or so, allowing
you time to schedule a visit to your

Cool Garages: What to do when you aren’t driving
forward by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Have you ever, say, been browsing the multi-milliondollar-home
listings for fun and been taken aback by the
troubling lack of priorities evident in the house to garage
ratio? Asking for a friend. I realize that cars might not
play as vital a role in some lives as it might in others, but
if you’re going to devote $40M to a home it should have
more than a four car garage right? Can you really call it
a batcave if it doesn’t have parking? You can see it over
and over. 10,000 square feet and not even a place to sit
down in the garage and admire your pride(s) and joy(s).
Fortunately not everyone is suspectable to this oversight
in good judgement. Following is a look inside the
garages of some of our members that clearly have their
priorities straight. Enjoy, take notes and at least sweep
the leaves out of your other living room.
Below: Robert Kendrick has an eclectic collection and plenty of room.
Above: Jack Griffin has some impressive hardware...and seating!
Above: Jim Mango has them packed in to the rafters. What an amazing
collection of automotive icons.
Above: Club President Bill Kruder has all the toys. No really, he has all
the toys, so if your scalextric is missing, check with him first.
You might notice the same posters popping up
in multiple garages. Come to some of our big
events and collect your own.
Below: Landon Stogner (black 997) and Mark Palmer (red Cayman and
993) have different ideas in garage decorating, but they are both pretty
successful in my opinion.
Above: Bob Aines couldn’t find the dealership of his dreams, so he built
one but they aren’t for sale.
Below: Jason Oliver has quite the collection of Maverick Memorabilia

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
It’s possible that we’ve all just shared the most similar
month that we ever will. Of course while some drank beer
and others of us drank scotch, at least one kind hearted
member posted regular videos giving us new ideas on
mixing up something new. Teri,
your Old Fashioned is still the
best I’ve ever had. And isn’t that
what it’s all about?
Social media has been abuzz
(I’ve always wanted to use that
word) with folks checking in,
finding humor in our current
reality and generally supporting
each other. Peter Wen even
showed us how to make flawless
ice cubes. Are you sensing a
theme here? If you haven’t
checked out the Maverick social media accounts, give
them a look. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram until your
heart is content. mav.pca.org/contacts/socialmedia Lots
of good stuff out there to help with the daydreams.
Where was I? Let’s see, news, news. Let’s start with
Porsche news. Doug Demuro reviewed the 992 Turbo
S Cab and liked it. He also reviewed the oddly named
2020 Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe and apparently
liked that too. The standout for me was the lightweight
sport package that saves 70 lbs on a 5600 lb vehicle that
I would spec only for the pepita
seat inserts. What else...the
spring member only raffle is a
chance to win a 2020 Taycan 4s
if that’s your thing. Good luck!
In other news, we all stayed
home...a lot. How have you
been keeping yourself and your
family occupied and engaged? I
know my family took a drive to
Ennis to visit some bluebonnets.
I think many of you might have
done the same. I know I’ve been
taking my car “to the store” over and over and it seems to
be working out well so far. I know that I’ll have caught up
on all of my youtube subscriptions before this is all over
too. Silver linings I guess. I’m sure we’ll all be so much
smarter and well read by the time this is all over right?
Stay safe, stay sane and please enjoy the drive.
Services Hits 500
by Mike Mahoney, Advertising Chair
In this age of constant
change, consistency and
loyalty are rare. There
was a time when working
for the same employer for
30+ years was normal. It
was also not unusual for
companies to last 30+ years.
Well we in the Maverick
Region are in some rarified
air. We have an advertiser
who not only has been
in business for 42 years,
but has also advertised in
Slipstream the entire time
they’ve been open. That’s
a lot of issues! Since 1978
Louden Motorcar Services
has been advertising in
Slipstream. So this month
we are celebrating not only
their 500th issue but also
their 500th consecutive
issue! That’s right! They
have never missed an issue
since 1978. Now that’s
consistency and loyalty!
We are so appreciative
of the support from Steve
Louden and his company
and his loyalty to our club.
Our Slipstream newsletter
has evolved into a bonafide
magazine that I look
forward to reading every
month. We thank Steve
and his company Louden
Motorcar Service, for all of
their support and another

Constant SLIPSTREAM Advertiser Since 1978
