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

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

just that.

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.

-Bill Kruder, Region President

“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

Maverick friends!

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

Slipstream Party!

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

7


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

President.

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!

8 September


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

anniversary. Evidence

of this was attendance

at the New/All

Member Party that

had a new venue and

record attendance

every year from 2014

when we had over

250 new, old, and

potential members

Wendy and Jasmine Shoffit with an

apparently carnivorous 996. We are

approaching Halloween after all.

(previous events

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

Slipstream advertisers

and participants in

Mavs & Mochas, and

volunteered to help deliver to the food bank! Way to

go guys!!

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.

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

over how

much fun

it was.

After a

couple

of SCCA

events I

learned

about the

different

groups in

the DFW

region

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

everything was

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

and about 1/8” toe out in the front and

0 toe in the rear. I believe the wheels

are OZ Alleggerita, with 245/40 and

275/40 Nexen NFera SUR 4G 200

tread wear tires. My ideal setup would

include a set of 255 and 285 width tires

and the X73 suspension package. As it

sits now, the car is awesome to drive

and loves being driven to the limit.

I am signed up for the event on 8/23

and I can’t wait to see the course you

have made for us.

Mark: So there really is nothing to it!

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

young generation.

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

photos provided by author

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

my home.

20 September

BK: How long have you lived in

DFW now?

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

care.

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

four years.

BK: During those four years you

did a lot and have been decorated

several times.

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

philosophy degree?

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

happen?

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

for “Lucille.”

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.

UPCOMING MAVERICK REGION EVENTS


Read. Between the Lines.

by Michael Baynton, Tech Session Co-Chair

photos provided by author

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

educational content.

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

plumb bobs.

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

24 September


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.

Be kind—realign!

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!

As your loyal servant as Tech Session co-chair, I miss

our monthly tech sessions that bring you informative and

helpful insights from our amazing partners and advertisers.

I can’t wait until these Covid times are in our rear-view

mirrors. Until then, I hope this little primer on parking hit

the spot.

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!

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.
