Taycan. Rhymes with icon.
With life getting back in motion, now is the perfect time to discover a classic in the
making: Taycan. It’s the first all-electric Porsche sports car, 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 at Park Place, this new Porsche icon comes with a total
commitment to sanitation, safety and comfort every time you visit the dealership.
That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

Well it’s been a few months since I last sat down to write
my Board Botschaft. Think we can sum up the first half of the
year as like trying to do the Texas Two Step to the tune of a
Waltz . . . let’s just say it hasn’t been easy.
By now I’m sure you are as tired as I am of trying to follow
along with “Is the event on still? Has it been moved? Is it safe
to even go?”
What I’d like you to know first and foremost is, as a board
member and as the President, we put great thought into the
decisions that have to be made. For instance, we do our best
to follow the state, county, and city guidelines, and they often
vary around the metroplex. Once we feel like we can comply,
we ask ourselves “can we keep our members safe?” Then
lastly, we ask “does it look and feel right?” This sometimes is
the most important. We can follow all the guidelines possible,
but if someone – anyone - perceives it to be irresponsible or
frivolous, we end up on the losing side.
So yes, we have had many a disappointment this year with
our 400+ attendee All Member Party being postponed not once
but twice (now March 21, 2021). Our Volunteer & Sponsorship
Appreciation get together has yet to happen. Not to mention
DEs and Mavs & Mochas that have been cancelled or moved.
But as Mavericks, we don’t stop our members and
volunteers from figuring out how to get together safely. We
had many a first with both a virtual tech session and a virtual
Mavs & Mochas. We have conducted our board meetings
virtually, and coming up, we will have the next couple
monthly Happy Hours virtually.
Now how about those Pop Ups! We don’t lack for those
on any given weekend starting on Friday (Flower Mound),
Saturday (Keller and other locations) and Sundays (Frisco)
most of which can all be found on our social media pages.
So what does the future of our club activities look like you
ask? That would be a big “we don’t know.” What we do know
is we will continue to plan events that meet what we think is
safe as mentioned above. Again some of the events may feel a bit

MAV OF THE MONTH:
different. An example is our Tours. They are smaller in registered
attendees by design; historically over 100-120 attendees, not
the current 50-60 to be safe. Our Rallies too are designed to be
paperless and contactless with attendees limited to 15-20 cars
but with more “episodes” as Ginger now calls them.
Lastly, I would like to again thank all the volunteers who
plan the events only to have me change them. To you members
thank you for your patience as we navigate thru all this. We
appreciate you more than ever!
Until I see you out again soon, know your safety is our
primary concern, and keep in mind not everyone has the same
comfort level during these unprecedented times, so be safe
and be kind.
Pat has been with PCA close to 12 years. Sometimes the smallest ideas can have the biggest impact
on our social activities. Pat is like many of us in that he enjoys a cup of coffee and conversations.
Here recently our larger club coffee events have been halted, but why should that stop everything
as long as it can be done so safely?
Pat has been a big part of keeping our friendly “Porsche Pop-Ups” going strong. Most weeks you
can find a social media event posting from Pat letting our fellow Mavs know that you might just
see a bunch of Porsches popping up at a local coffee shop on a Saturday or Sunday morning. At
times during the cooler months, you might see that he has selected a local breakfast diner. It’s kind
of like Porsches Pop-Up & Pancakes (or sticky buns, for the Crossroads Diner fans).
Pat is a frequent attendee of the Mavs & Mochas events. He has contributed to Slipstream many
times by providing a recap article detailing the event and giving us the stats on the number of
Porsches that attended. Pat is just one of many individuals who keeps our coffee gatherings going so that we have something
to look forward to each week. This small gesture is what Driving Friendships is all about and is a wonderful reminder of
how our club stays Fueled By Volunteers. Please join me in Congratulating Pat as our Maverick of the Month.

Who represents this exclusive group? Our
MRPCA active members who have held membership
in the PCA for a minimum of 20 years and held an
elected Executive Board position (President, Vice
President, Secretary or Treasurer).
This select group made our club what it is
today! I am just lucky enough as President to be
its current caretaker, doing my best to model what
these people did for some 58 years, and ensure I
continue it moving forward and stronger than ever.
The sign of any great organization or business is
With that being said, I reached out to several of
our Crest Club inductees and asked them to share a
moment during there leadership period. Take note of
the membership numbers and how we have grown.

“If you meet the criteria for the Crest Club and your name is not listed, please contact President@mrpca.org so we can be sure to recognize you.
Barry Gibbs, President 1973; Members: 175
Fran Ussery, President 1984; Members: 395
1973 was a long time ago and my memory that
far back is a little fuzzy. I think that was the first year
that we had a weekend trip to Point Venture on Lake
Travis. Lots of driving in the Hill Country, dinner
Saturday night, and autocross on Sunday morning. I
think Maverick Region had that event two years. Don’t
remember why there were only two.
The thing that sticks in my mind is how few of
the really active members are still around. Some have
moved, sold their cars, or just got old and are no longer
with us. Charlie Davis was my nemesis for many years.
His ’69 S was just faster than my lowly ’69 T, but we
had a lot of fun. And, I actually won a few times! There
were many more: the Corbeilles, the Rickets, the
Cowans, Dr. George, and on and on.
John Halla, President 1977; Members: 172
Attending the 1977 Porsche Parade in San
Diego, I was surprised to learn upon arriving
that there was to be a reception, for Region
Presidents only, where the Guest of Honor was to
be Ferry Porsche himself and his wife Dorothea.
The trip out was memorable, as I rode shotgun
with Charlie Davis in his 2.8-liter 1972 911S,
“Voodoo.” He allowed me to drive some legs,
too. After a couple of days on the road, I will
always remember him opening the sunroof for
the first time, and gulping in that wonderful fresh
72˚F San Diego air. Anyway, the reception went
as planned, and I was able to get some face time with
Dr. Porsche himself, and a few words with Dorothea.
“Ferry” was relaxed, and very easy to talk to. A nice
couple, whose names aren’t known now, agreed to snap
a photo of Dr. Porsche and myself. After the picture
arrived in the mail, I framed it. It’s been on the wall
ever since. One could say it was a “dream-come-true,”
except I wouldn’t have even known to dream such a
dream. Later during that year, for the 1977 Time Trial
season at Oak Hill Raceway, I grabbed a 1st place in
the 2.2-2.4 911T and 911E class.
Joan Gibbs, President 1983; Members: 337
I was the first girl President with a three year old,
Bryan, and of course Barry! So what else did I have to
do but be President of the club? There were so many
volunteers that year - probably afraid, and rightly so,
that I didn’t know what I was doing! I appreciated all
the help and loved the friendships. The ‘69 911T had
moved to Houston, then came the 914 2.4-liter zoomzoom
car, and I drove the ’78 911 SC daily. Bryan’s
friends loved the carpooling in my yellow Porsche.
I was not the first female President and had big shoes
to fill following Joan Gibbs. But 1984 was a jam-packed
year. Maverick Region set new attendance records
and introduced new types of events. My goal was to
encourage more involvement by families and especially
the ladies of the club. We had skating parties, a fashion
show luncheon, and developed events that brought out
the whole family. Because I loved autocross, encouraging
more women to participate was my special interest, and
I was proud of the growth of competitive female drivers
and leaders in the club, and the fun family events.
Linda Bambina, Secretary 1985 and VP 1991; Members: 564
VP: These were the years when
the Vice President was in charge of
monthly dinner/program meetings
at local restaurants/hotels. We did
a select menu with a fixed price
and the trick was to find a place on
a Saturday night that would let us
dominate a space from 6:30-9:30!
Once the program was a Talent Show
with Ed and Jan doing a lip sync and
Alan playing four chords on his new
banjo! I dressed up as Dolly Parton
(“Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”)
singing and dancing with crazy
Secretary: These were the years
that the club literally gathered at Ussery Printing to
collate pages, staple, trim edges, apply labels, and then
sort the Slipstream into zip codes so we could then drive
those yucky canvas bags over to the FW Post Office
Distribution Center by the night’s deadline! We did
this EVERY month for YEARS and called the event a
Linda Bambina. I’m told this is her
usual Sunday morning attire.
Alan Bambina, President 1986-87; Members: 337
The year, 1987. I
was serving my second
year as President
primarily because the
board didn’t want to
have an election and a
change of staff with the
PCA Parade looming
ahead. On top of all
the regular duties of
the office, Linda and
I were registrars for
the Parade and had an
additional computer (one of the region’s first) in our
home office. I even had a second phone line installed
just for the registrations. We’d teach school all day,
come home, and enter data all evening.
The rewards for all this work was the first day of the
Parade at check in, seeing all my old friends from all
over the country gritching about the heat in Texas, but
happy to be here. Then again at the Concours Banquet,
seated on the dais alongside all the folks who put this
event together. What an honor.
Jan Michel (Mayo), Treasurer 1987 and 1995; Members: 527
Well, how do you find one pivotal moment in 40
years of Maverick PCA? Partial history: I joined
Maverick Region in 1980 (around 300 members); I
was Treasurer multiple years as well as for Parade ’87,
Secretary a couple different times, Slipstream Editor
several years, Zone 5 Rep 1997-2002, Parade Chair
2004, then National Award Chair 2007-2010. Pick an
outstanding moment?? Being Parade Chair 2004 was a
fun time. I had an incredible set of people all doing their
jobs! I just sat back and watched.
Ed Mayo, President 1991-92; Members: 564
I noted in one of my last columns that at least I never got the
club involved in a middle eastern war . . . quite proud of that!
On an interesting note, I did award the “Selcer” trophy
to Julia Underwood for her great job as editor. When you
see Julia, ask her why her column was labeled “itor.”
Autocross rules and events were a big part of region
life at that time. We often had 50 entries at our autocross
and time trial events and that’s JUST Porsches! During
this time we also had autocross schools.
There was usually a large contingent of Mavericks
going to out-of-region events in Santa Fe, Whiskey Bay
Region (Louisiana), Corpus Christi, Austin, San Antonio
and where ever Parade was. I think swap meets were also
popular events back then.
And who can ever forget Linda Bambina’s “costume concours?”
Brian Scudder, President 1998-99; Members: 774
I feel honored to be in the Crest Club. I did not do that
much, in fact I think I was falling asleep at a “Bored”
Meeting and the next thing I knew I was running
unopposed for President. Then I tried to hold Maverick
Region together for the next two years. I have been
thinking of writing a book on my two years as President,
and VP, and Secretary, and Club Race Chairman.
One of the most memorable times was receiving the
Region of the Year Trophy at the 1998 Porsche Parade
in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Maverick Region
has always been a strong region with its size of area,
membership diversity, depth of events, and can-do
attitude. Winning the trophy the second time shows
that the region has continued to grow and remain
strong. I rediscovered a gift that was given to me at
Founders Day, an album with notes written on paper
cutout hands thanking me for my service as president.
This means a lot - thank you.
Alan Lage, Secretary 2000; Members: 905
Highlights of my time as
Maverick Region Secretary .
. . the start of the region DE
program and instructor clinic at
the then new MotorSport Ranch
race track in Cresson . . . 6 am
Saturday morning drives to the
Mineral Wells Airport where, as
Time Trial coordinator, I was in
charge of setup, teardown, etc. of our official Maverick
Region’s track, the Mineral Ring . . . and of course our
lively discussion board meetings at Brian Scudder’s
house, which included free beer and pizza. There may
have been some lively Porsche driving competitions
leaving those meetings!
James Shoffit, President 2001-02 and 2007-08; Members: 954
I joined the club in ‘97
to autocross the 1990 911
I had just bought.
Brian Scudder was the
President of the Maverick
Region my first year in
the club. Charlie Davis
was President next and
he was instrumental in
my decision to run for
James and Wendy Shoffit. I’m told this is not their usual attire.
Keith Olcha, President 2003-2004; Members: 1006
A highlight of being President was lobbying PCA
National to take over the 2004 Porsche Parade from
another region that was having issues. We had a great
team of Parade-knowledgeable volunteers who worked
tirelessly and made it a success. It was exciting being
part of some of the committees and visiting prospective
venues. We rented the entire Texas Motor Speedway to
have the autocross in their giant parking lot and held a
club race inside on the racetrack as well as activities in
the infield. Streets were blocked off and the Concours
was held in downtown Fort Worth. It was magical!
Wendy Shoffit, Secretary 2014-18; Members: 893-1374
During my four-year tenure as Secretary from
2014-2017 I served under three different presidents
(John Hamilton, Jim Falgout, and David Robertson).
Membership at that time seemed to start really going
up after our 50th club
of this was attendance
at the New/All
Member Party that
had a new venue and
every year from 2014
when we had over
250 new, old, and
Wendy and Jasmine Shoffit with an
apparently carnivorous 996. We are
approaching Halloween after all.
were in the ~100
range)! Organized by
Tracy Robertson, we
learned how to really
get people excited
about the club that
we all know and love.

Mavs & Mochas: Orange Cones Edition
by Pat Carmichael
photos provided by Landon Stogner & Scott Sheetz
Porsche, orange cone, Porsche, orange cone,
Porsche, repeat - the little orange cones marshaling a
reminder to space apart; to stay socially distancing!! It
was an appreciated theme that repeated for 160+ cars
covering pretty much the entire parking lot in front of
Weir’s Furniture. A great socially-distanced turnout on
a beautiful Saturday morning!!
The PCA Mavericks under the Park Place tent and in
the shadow of a brand new Porsche Macan were moved
to be a charitable group as well, collecting almost $1,200
for breast cancer (awesomeness!!) AND donating 725
pounds of food along with $250 in cash (to be matched
by the PCA Mavericks club!!!) donations to the Good
Samaritan North Texas
Food Bank in Garland.
In fact there was so
much food donated we
had to enlist the help
of the On Site Tires
truck; these guys are
and participants in
Mavs & Mochas, and
volunteered to help deliver to the food bank! Way to
Did I mention it was a great morning? It was a great
sunny morning. Good to see good friends and family
along with just being out and about. Bumping fists,
elbows, or just waving and trying to recognize everyone
behind their masks - it was good to just be seen and, what
it’s all about, seeing all the Porsche cars lined up between
the little orange cones!! See y’all next month!!
Thank you very much for greeting me into your special organization of so many special, professional, and
caring people in the PCA/Mavericks. So many members came by the Light Ivory 1965 356C coupe today.
I only answered questions, so professional that they waited until another Mav to come up and ask me more.
When this happens so extemporaneously for almost 1.5 hours, you know it was a great day! Members came up and I asked them what they drove
to the event. Most had late model +6 figure machines, but to say the 356’s were maybe their favorites through the years. Being a novice here,
I can only say that today was one of my best encounters of the Porsche Kind…… Guess we are all out of this world, or should be.
Contact me to learn how you can
get the most out of retirement.

Driver Profile: Reid Cloud, White 2015 Cayman S
by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
Mark Schnoerr: Reid, you really smoked
the class and were first quick in the
Performance Index of all the Porsches
at the first Autocross you attended with
us. Can you tell us a little about you,
your driving background and how you
prepared your 2015 Cayman S?
Top: Reid getting his autocross game face on
Bottom: His 2015 Cayman S being put to good use
Reid Cloud: “I am a 26 year old
DFW native who graduated from
the University of North Texas with
a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
I’ve had a passion for the automotive
world for as long as I can remember
thanks to my dad who always had a
project he was working on while I was
growing up. My favorite was his 1937
Ford Fordor that was restored from
the ground up.
My autocross experience is actually
fairly limited compared to most people
out there with us every week. I got my
first taste of autocross when I was a
member of UNT’s Formula SAE team
from 2014-2016. It was always a blast
to drive the FSAE car and I could
never get enough of that experience.
After I graduated, I fell off the wagon
and didn’t do much in the way of
autocrossing for the next three years.
After I got hired and had been
working for a couple of years
at Peterbilt Motors, one of
my buddies who I knew from
SAE invited another friend
and myself out to an SCCA
autocross event. I can’t recall
why, but I would always have
plans or other obligations
almost every time he asked.
After about three months, I
finally was able to go to my
first non-SAE autocross with
my Cayman in the summer
of 2019. After I experienced
that first event, I couldn’t get
and started going
to as many as I
could until the
end of the season.
I got a couple of
events into the
start of the current
2020 season when
shut down and I
just started back
up with the SCCA
event in July and
PCA/ER in the
beginning of August.
So my total experience with autocrossing
a full size vehicle is somewhere around
nine months to a year.
My car is a 2015 Cayman S and its
setup is pretty basic as I have it classed
in SCCA A-Street or P3 in ER. All I’ve
really done to the car is an alignment
and wheels/tires which ended up being
around -1.5 degrees in the front/rear

Maverick Marktpreis: 997.1
by Peter Wen
I’ve met a lot of people through my
work and over my life. Inevitably, as
soon as they find out I am a Porsche
owner, their eyes light up and they share
their dreams of owning one someday.
With a modest budget, my advice to
them is always the same: check out the
Generation 997.1 911s. They are good
buys, or dare I say, good investments.
Price Surprise! The 997.1 is already
at the bottom of its depreciation curve.
Over the last three years, pricing has
flatlined. The Carrera S has actually
increased in value, up from the 2019
level. Very encouraging news for this
Performance The 997.1 is a bona
fide sports car for the new millennium.
Equipped with the Sport Chrono Package
and the Sports Exhaust, even a base
Carrera can pull 0-60 mph in the mid-4
seconds! Can’t-miss options, such as the
Porsche Active Suspension Management
(PASM) and Porsche Carbon-Ceramic
Brakes (PCCB) catapult the 997.1 to
world class sports car status.
Look & Feel The Goldilocks of
modern Porsches, it’s neither too big nor
too small. Its feedback-rich hydraulic
power steering feels just right. Better
yet, it still looks like a classic 911. This
generation has aged gracefully. Beautiful.
Gen 997.1 is a good buy. It’s an
investment you can enjoy now and
trade up to your dream P-cars later. If
your budget allows, I highly recommend
the Gen 997.2 examples as well. We
reviewed them in the January, 2020
issue of Slipstream.

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder

Let’s see - how did we meet? Oh
that’s right, over coffee (laughing)
where else? Our first encounter
was in 2015 at an early Mavs &
Mochas; think it was Pearl Cup in
Richardson. As I recall we showed
up early as usual, to find the center,
including Pearl Cup, with no
power. Ok, so now what do we do?
Well, he drives up, and I was telling
each arrival “go down the street
to Starbucks and get your coffee
and come back!” So he leaves and
about 20 minutes later he’s back
not with his coffee but a 96 oz.
coffee traveler for us to share until
the power came back on. Well for
those of you that know him, coffee
is his passion, (ok, so are IPA’s)!
Matter of fact, for the last couple
years he has created the FloMo pack
that meets every Friday, and I mean
every Friday, at Novel Roasters
in Flower Mound. So if you find
yourself wanting some fellowship
over coffee, don’t miss out.
So here is the next in my series
of “conversations” I would like to
share with you . . .
Bill Bradley, enthusiast since 1962
Owner 2006 997 Cab
Bill Kruder: Let’s start off with the
usual. Where the heck are you from?
Bill Bradley: Well that’s kind of
interesting actually, as I was born in
White Plains, NY, which is about 30-
40 miles north of Manhattan more or
less, up I-95. We lived there till my dad
took a job at Princeton University in
New Jersey, as the Business Manager
at the Institute for Advanced Study.
When I was 13 my dad passed away
so we moved back to White Plains
to live with my grandmother. I then
lived there till I graduated high school
in 1958. Interesting note though, my
mom remarried and moved back to
Princeton so I always considered both
BK: How long have you lived in
BB: We moved to Keller in I think
about 1969, then to Lewisville to
be close to Judy’s office. We then
moved to Flower Mound, or FloMo
as we call it, about 6-7 years ago.
Top: Bill and Judy Bradley
Bottom: Pup with a view
BB: I know you had a long Penney
Co career so you will appreciate
this bit of trivia. When I was in
high school 1954-58 I worked as an
orderly at a rehab center in White
Plains. Well one of the patients there
was Caroline Autenrieth Penney,
the third wife of JC. Apparently she
had a riding accident fracturing her
cervical vertebrae resulting in longterm
BK: How about College?
BB: Well that too is interesting; shall
we say I was not the best student
(laughing). I started at Bard College
- it’s on the Hudson north of West
Point. So that lasted about a year. I
took a break, then I attended Drew
University, which is about 40-50
minutes outside Manhattan in
Madison, New Jersey. To make a
long story short I finally went back
to school and graduated from East
Tennessee, Johnson City, Tennessee
with a B.A in Philosophy in 1966.
BK: Now we have talked before
that you spent time in the military?
BB: I did. I had joined the Army
Reserves during one of my breaks
in college. By doing so when I
graduated from college, not only
did I get my degree but I now
was a commissioned officer, a
2nd Lieutenant. I did two tours in
Vietnam; the first was in 1968 right
when the Tet Offensive ended. The
second tour started after they had
sent me stateside. They sent me
to Ft Hood, the one place I said I
did not want to go. I was there six
months and asked to be sent back
to Vietnam, as I wanted to be in the
field. All in all I was active duty for
BK: During those four years you
did a lot and have been decorated
BB: That I did. I was awarded
the coveted Combat Infantryman
Badge along with the Distinguished
Flying Cross both awarded for
gallantry in action.
BK: Now tell me about how you and
Judy met (to avoid confusion: Judy
is Bill’s wife and Lucille is his car)?
BB: Coming out of the service I found myself at Ft Sill
in Lawton, OK. Shortly thereafter I was at a pool party
at my apartment and there she was. We were both going
to grad school at University of Oklahoma. We dated for
about a year before we got married in 1973, 48 years ago.
BK: So what field of work did you do with your
BB: What most do, something else (laughing). I was
in the hydraulic component business as a Regional
Manager that dealt with distributors of our product to
the factory. M.P. Filtri in Milan, Italy was my employer,
which allowed Judy and me to travel the world.
followed by a 1970 914/6 (bought this car brand new),
and let’s just say it was not the greatest when you live
in OK with no air conditioning. Only had about four
months before I bought a Vette with AC (laughing).
BK: Let’s fast forward to “Lucille.” How did this
BB: Well I had a company car, a Volvo S60 Turbo; mind
you this was no slouch of a car. But not many know
that Volvo of Dallas has this exotic car business and
I had heard they had this very nice Porsche in their
inventory. I went over to look and traded their Volvo
BK: Ok let’s talk cars now. What was your first car?
BB: That was in 1961. It was a 1936 Ford five-window
coupe. I paid $750 for it and that car was near perfect.
That was followed by a SIMCA (French auto maker) that
was a four speed on the column of all things. What was
unique about it was it had a gasoline heater in the car.
BK: Now I know you have been a Porsche enthusiast
for 58 years. What was your first?
BB: The first was in 1962 between my college years. I
was 21 and bought a 1960 356 in Ruby Red. This was
BK: Tell me about these dogs you post on FB?
BB: Judy and I bought our first Irish Setter years ago up
in Norman. We have bred them for shows since the mid
‘70s; Judy is an AKC judge for the breed. We currently
have three, and all are AKC champions.
BK: Tell me one thing that not many know about you?
BB: Hmmm . . . that I don’t listen to country music
(laughing). Actually my grandmother was a Juilliardtrained
concert pianist. Well, having lived with her as a
kid, I was always around classical music and it stuck. I
also have a love of the opera and am lucky enough to
have attended an opera at the famed Teatro alla Scala
in Milan. Truly it might be the world’s most famous
opening in 1778.
And there you have it: Driving Friendships with one of
those last Renaissance men.

Read. Between the Lines.

And now for something completely different! Every
month we feature several articles that relate to driving our
cars—tours, track/AX events, coffee get-togethers, you
name it. It’s all about the journey or the destination. But
today we are going to discuss a seemingly trivial aspect
Nice alignment, good color, I give it a 9.5
of our shared automotive passion: “fancy” parking. Call
it pretentious, overly complicated, or just a convenient
canvas for professional and amateur picture snappers
alike—what’s the big deal with everyone having to back
their Porsches into parking spots when we gather for
events? Why can’t we just park like normal people?
It’s a great question, and one that had been begging
for this little missive for quite some time. There have
been lots of offline discussions on how to best dissect this
delicate topic, so let’s tackle it with equal parts humor and
There are actually several important reasons why backin
parking (or reverse parking) is advantageous. Let’s get
the obvious out of the way right up front—it just plain
looks cool when all of the Porsches are lined up in a neat
little row, deep spoilers and voluptuous fenders preening
perfectly side by side as if lined up for the ultimate horse
race. Precision is built into every Porsche, and it just seems
fitting to pay respect to that ethos when we gather to
celebrate our German show ponies. And if you think that’s
hyperbole, take a peek at Porsche marketing literature and
images through the decades. You’d be forgiven for thinking
that Ferry Porsche himself aligned the cars with ruler and
Aesthetics aside, there are several practical and safetyrelated
benefits to our little parking lot ballet. Since we
often share our parking lots with non-Porsche folks,
parking “just so” sends a subtle message to others that
something amazing might be going on that they are not a
part of. This can often help dissuade them from
maneuvering their galactic Buick Enclave XXL
into a tight spot between a new 992 Turbo and
a svelte ’85 Carrera. It’s akin to the herd of
buffalo lining up to face the lion’s threat headon.
Like nature, it doesn’t always work, but it’s
a simple defensive mechanism we can utilize to
protect our flanks. And by doing our part to
park consistently and neatly centered between
the lines, we give each other breathing room to
avoid door dings or worse.
For our events, it’s also more convenient
for ingress and egress. We tend to arrive
at different times, so it’s easy to back into a
suitable spot when traffic and crowds are
smaller. And since most of our PCA events end
at a specific time, it’s so much easier for large
crowds to disperse quickly and safely when we
are all facing in the same direction and have
better visual awareness.
Most importantly, it’s been shown in many
studies that back-in parking is much safer for
vehicles and pedestrians alike. Reversing into a defined space
is much less risky than backing your Porsche into a parking
lot lane filled with distracted pedestrians, departing Mavs
and other vehicles eager to get to the next 50%-off sale
at Restoration Hardware. Many cities and municipalities
actually mandate reverse parking, citing reduced traffic
congestion and accidents caused by distracted drivers.
Simply put, having a wide field of vision is more important
when you’re pulling out of a parking space than it is when
pulling in. And another bonus: should you ever have a dead
battery, it’s so much easier to get a jump if your engine/
battery is accessible by a good Samaritan or tow service.
So, let’s talk Parking 101. To be blunt, this “reversing in”
maneuver is second nature to some and a cause of anxiety
and agita for others-–especially with judging eyes all around.
It’s Porsche performance anxiety of the worst kind! Reading
between the lines (See what I did there?), here are a few tips
to help ease the fear of a parking faux pas:
1. Remember that most Porsches of recent vintage have
“dipping” side mirrors to help with visibility when you
back in. Select either left or right mirror and it should dip
down to give a better view of the ground once you put
your car in Reverse. Assuming that your parking neighbor
did a reasonable job of
staying in his/her spot,
you should have 12-24”
of space inside each line
for your spot. Just keep
that line parallel to your
path and slowly back in.
2. Check your work! If you
don’t have at least 12”
between your Michelins
and the white stripe,
you’re probably not
leaving enough room
for your neighbor. And Ooops!
remember that one wonky
parking job can cause a domino effect of uneven cars.
Boom, there goes your shot of making a Slipstream cover.
3. At our events, a great rule of thumb is to back in until
your side mirrors line up with the mirrors of your
Porsche neighbor. That almost always ensures good
alignment and pretty photo ops.
4. Psst--If you arrive early enough, many times you can do
the drive-through move with the spot behind and avoid
the issue altogether. That’s only sorta cheating…
5. Practice! Grab 4 Gatorade bottles, bright microfiber towels,
or other visible (but expendable!) items and go find a big,
unused parking lot early on a weekend morning. Mark off
your spot and practice lining up your car evenly between
the lines, then slowly back in until you are fully in the spot
and centered between the lines. Pro tip: decide which of
your three mirrors you are going to use as your primary
alignment device, and only use the other two for minor
corrections. Parking lot lines are arrow straight—get your
alignment right and very little steering wheel adjustment
is needed for parking perfection. I guarantee that a few
focused minutes will make you a reversing pro. In possibly
less time than it took to read this article. Also, YouTube is
your friend here!
6. As a last resort, ask for help. If you are still lacking
confidence in your parking prowess, ask one of the Mav
volunteers to assist you. We can help direct you, and even
take over and park your Porsche like the professionals we
are. No charge for this service, and no tipping required!

helpful insights from our amazing partners and advertisers.

Christian Community Action Canned Food Drive
by Jimmy Gallegos, Region Charity Chair
photo provided by author
PCA Mavericks participated in another successful
drive-through canned food event benefitting Christian
Community Center (CCA) in Lewisville. It was another
hot Texas summer day, but it did not keep people away
from making the Porsche drive to Lewisville to donate
801 pounds of canned food and $500.00 in cash! The
Maverick Region matched the cash amount and CCA
received $1000.00 cash to help those in need.
“We were to spread His love, not by word, but
by our lives and by a caring ministry dedicated to
easing the pain and suffering of the least blessed in
this world. We listened. We heard. We obeyed. And
a ministry was born.” – Tom Duffy, Founder, CCA
CCA had 25,000 visits to the Food Pantry in 2019
and served over 1,500 households and over 5,000
individuals through programs and assistance.
This has been a successful model, which is now
managed by Mr. Gilbert Montez, CEO of CCA. Trent
Smith, CCA Director of Strategic Services, helped us
coordinate a date and planned a drive-through tent to
hand off canned food and cash donations. Mr. Montez
has managed to keep several people involved with the
North Texas Food Bank affiliate, reaching hundreds of
people who are in need especially during the Pandemic
of 2020. Their successful efforts continue 365 days a
year and they are always looking for volunteers.
At the drive-through, Mav drivers were greeted by
Mr. Montez and Ms. Bobbie Mitchell, Denton County
Commissioner, and by Phyllis Gallegos, frantically
waving a Porsche flag. Ms. Mitchell initiated a weekly call
to coordinate area agencies and check their food supply.
They can assist each other to ensure they are meeting the
needs of the communities and help other agencies when
needed. Communities helping communities!
If you’d like to volunteer at a canned food donation
event in the future or organize an unofficial pop up drive
to the next drive-through, please contact me at charity@
mavpca.org. We want to be sure that all Mavericks have
the opportunity to give back in this time of extreme need.
Many thanks to Mr. Montez, CCA staff and
volunteers and Ms. Bobbie Mitchell. My wife Phyllis and
I were grateful to be put in a position to help Christian
Community Action Center. Stay tuned for another
Canned Food Drive-Through in the future as the need
continues to grow.
Mavs helping others!

74 914 2.0 with working dealer installed AC. I kick myself for every Porsche

Most memorable Maverick or PCA event
I’ve done several tours, which is a favorite of mine. The drives are fun but the lunch,
beverages and people are my favorite part of the club!
Best thing about Porsche ownership
The engineering, the design, the driving experience and their sheer beauty make me happy.
I go to my garage for no reason, always take a look back, talk about them non-stop and I have a
shameful number of Porsche pics in my phone. I’m in love with these cars.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Let me begin by saying that I will not be discussing,
mentioning or referring to any of the words du jour. The
ones mostly beginning with the letter “C”. I am fatigued
beyond all good sense about that discussion. That is all.
Instead, I’ll be focusing on an exchange had at our weekly
local Porsche kaffeeklatsch. It began innocently enough as
most do, but it quickly turned contentious. (Yes that was a
“C” word, I’ll try to do better.) The topic you ask? Shoes.
How does one have a discussion about shoes go wrong you
ask? Let me try to explain.
First some background; topics at our Friday gettogethers
vary widely, but one theme seems to reappear
quite often. Of course. And because of this, every so often
there is talk of looking for an addition to the menagerie.
The stockpile? The stash. Whatever, you get my point. The
question that usually follows, “so what are you going to
get rid of?” (Another disclaimer which I probably should
have mentioned sooner; our group is predominantly
married men and as such some of our pursuits fall under
specific guidelines.) We absolutely owe our wives a debt of
gratitude as most of us are not as practical as perhaps we
should be when Porsches are involved. Am I good? I’m sure
our women enthusiasts deal with the same thing.
So back to the story, we were having a discussion about
one or two of us in the group looking to acquire a new or
new to them Porsche. Someone asks what will be leaving
to make room for the new addition and then I opened my
mouth and started a fire. I asked “does she have to throw
out a pair of shoes when she buys a new pair?” Guys, this
is a stupid argument and I suggest that you never consider
using it. Thinking men that we are, we quickly realized that
shoes do not go for the same money as Porsches, but they do
run in the same range as a lot of the things we like to put on
our Porsches. So we pressed on. Could this be the argument
we’re looking for? Exhibit A. Wheels? Manolo Blahnik
Exhibit B. Exhaust? Jimmy Choo. (I know, I almost made
it, but it’s a proper name so I think that’s a technicality) I
have more, but I think I’ve made my point. And before you
argue that you wear those things to look nice for us, so do
we. We want to deliver you to the opera in an automobile
befitting your elegant visage. We want you to be the envy
of the men and the women we see on our way to dinner.
The grocery store? The track? Are you buying any of this? I
definitely should have kept my mouth shut.
Well guys, I gave it my best shot. If you need me, I’ll be
on the couch. Enjoy her new shoes and enjoy the drive.
