Board Botschaft: How Much Territory does Maverick Region Cover?
by Carey Spreen, Region VP
At the recent meet-up with some of our Wichita Falls
members (page 6), the question of how far Maverick Region
extends came up a couple of times. I realized that many of
our members may not be familiar with the physical extent
of Maverick Region, and also might not know who our
neighboring PCA regions are.
First things first: PCA is divided up into 14 zones containing
145 regions across Canada and the US, including Alaska and
Hawaii. Maverick Region is in Zone 5, which includes the
eastern 2/3 of Texas and all of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and
Louisiana. (West Texas and the Panhandle are in Zone 9.) There
are 12 regions in Zone 5: Ark-La-Tex, Cimarron, Coastal Bend,
Hill Country, Lone Star, Longhorn, Mardi Gras, Maverick,
Ozark, War Bonnet, Whiskey Bay, and White River. All PCA
region boundaries follow county lines, so any particular county
falls entirely into a single region.
consists of much
more than just the
Tarrant, Collin, and
Denton) – in fact, it
covers a total of 48
counties. The region
stretches a bit over
300 miles east to
west, and about 200
miles north to south.
Our northern frontier is the Oklahoma border, from Red River
County (county seat Clarksville) in the northeast to Wilbarger
County (Vernon) in the northwest. The western border continues
down to Eastland County (Eastland), with the southwesternmost
county being Comanche County (Comanche).
Our southern frontier then follows a crooked line eastward
through Somervell (Glen Rose), Johnson (Cleburne), Ellis
(Waxahachie), and Navarro (Corsicana) Counties, with the
southernmost edge in Freestone County (Fairfield). The southern
border also includes Anderson County (Palestine), with the
southeastern-most corner being Cherokee County (Rusk).
MAV OF THE MONTH:
The eastern limit of Maverick Region includes Smith (Tyler),
Upshur (Gilmer), and Morris (Daingerfield) Counties, and back
to Red River County.
So what PCA regions border Maverick Region? Our northern
neighbors are Cimarron Region, based in Tulsa, and War Bonnet
Region, based in Oklahoma City. To the west lie Zone 9 and West
Texas Region (Lubbock and Midland/Odessa). We share our
southwestern border with Hill Country Region (Austin), while to
the southeast is Houston-based Lone Star Region. Directly to the
east is Ark-La-Tex Region (Texarkana and Shreveport), which
encompasses counties from East Texas, southwestern Arkansas,
and northern Louisiana all the way to the Mississippi River.
You can find out more about PCA’s zones and regions by
visiting https://www.pca.org/region-directory. Meanwhile,
watch for future meet-ups with more Mavericks on the outskirts
of our region – we want to get to know you better!
This month Ed celebrates 45 years as a PCA member, and has been involved with many activities
over that time. In most recent years, Ed started volunteering to be a drive leader for the PCA Driving
Tours program. He was the first to come up with the idea for our Vintage Group for lesser-powered
Porsches or for those just wanting an easier-paced route.
Over the past two plus years Ed has clocked over 1,500 miles (or smiles as I like to call them) in
his 1984 944 leading groups on so many of our Club’s great tours. It was Ed’s idea for the colored
laminated placards to display on the leader’s cars to help the attendees identify each group leader. This
replaced the paper folders that always seem to look too weathered after each tour. This proved to be
a needed improvement as the placards are still being used today.
Be on the lookout for our last tour of the year coming up in November - you might just see Ed
“Driving Friendships” as he leads a group of roadworthy Mavs along a fun route. Thanks to individuals
like Ed, this is how our club stays Fueled By Volunteers. Please join me in Congratulating Ed as our Maverick of the Month.

the cancellation or

October 3, a date to
remember, was the
day we pulled off the
Let me set the stage
for you. It started with a crazy idea that we should
try to reach our members in some far reaching DFW
communities. With a little research we picked Wichita
Falls as one of those areas. It became our first in this
new experiment called “Mavs Mittagessen!”
Doug Jacobson took on the task with the help of
Tom Spitzer from WF to make this meet up happen. It
wasn’t easy – as a matter of fact, due to COVID, it took
us three tries to get it on the calendar.
So the guys persisted and we picked the first Saturday
in October. What a perfect day we picked.
The day started out sunny and a cool 59 degrees
as we did our pre-meet up in Denton where 18 cars
showed up to make the 90-minute drive. We took off
at 8:20 am with a parade of cars headed north. Ninety
minutes later we arrived at Duck Coffee to be greeted
by 12 local cars. We believe that is most likely a Wichita
Falls record of Porsches in a single location.
With some 40 members meeting together for the first time
the fun began with - what else – COFFEE, and hanging out
with our CARS. After about an hour we walked about two
blocks to Highlander Public House with a patio waiting for
us with some of the best food imaginable.
After a great lunch and even better conversation,
we headed back over to our cars to say our goodbyes,
and long goodbyes they were. We made sure to give
our new friends lots of Porsche goodies including car
decals, a Maverick glass, and our infamous matchbox
Porsches for our littlest Mavs.

There was a marked urgency in the raspy voice at the
other end of the phone line.
“Better get down here pronto, Hammer. You’ll want to
see this. City Garage.” A resounding click echoed through
the phone receiver.
It was Sgt. McNulty, an old pal waitin’ out his pension.
His speech was more clipped than his usual “tough cop”
cadence. It was one that I learned to ignore, even jokingly
mock, on occasion. But this time the tone was different. My
nose started to twitch; whatever he wanted me to see must be
serious, real serious. I slid the phone back onto its cradle. It
was almost midnight and I was just downing my umpteenth
bourbon and water, most of them light on the water.
Slipping on my jacket and fedora, I summoned an Uber to
pick me up and take me over to City Garage. I really didn’t
know what an “Uber” was, but some semi-famous techie
client owed me big time and gave me a “smartphone” loaded
with an “app” that did it all for me. He said the “Uber” would
take me anywhere I needed to go. So who am I to argue?
Turns out the Uber driver was just some down-on-hisluck
Joe in a late model Volvo, but he got me to the garage
in an efficient, Nordic manner. I slipped him a deuce as a tip;
he looked at it like it was funny money or some sort of bogus
I limped over to the ominous gray sliding warehouse
doors of the building. They loomed large ahead of me, like
the lid of a casket with a body that no one wanted to claim.
To the uninformed, City Garage is the unofficial morgue of
the twisted wrecks of highway metal that litter the roadways
each and every day. Their transient residents are the rusted,
shot up, mangled, and burnt out hulks of roadway misfortune
one sees during the early morning hours of any weekend.
Once inside the garage, the rancid smell of roadway death
filled my nostrils. It was unmistakable: the kind of dank, oily
smell you never forget, especially if you’ve eaten at any of the
supposed “Italian” restaurants in Dallas.
Then I saw something even a tough mug like me would
never forget. There were a dozen official “suits with badges”
crowded around a spent carcass laid bare across the center of
the garage, its putrid green entrails strewn across the polished
concrete floor. The rubber skin was torn open, apparently
very violently. It was obvious where the “green” came from.
Staring down on the exposed bowels, I wondered what
kind of twisted, sick individual could allow something like
this to happen. The idea hung over me forebodingly, like
one of those thought balloons that appear over a Dick Tracy
Sickened, I threw McNulty an icy stare.
“You got an ID on what we’re looking at here?”
“Sure thing, Hammer. It’s a Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, size
305/30-ZR20. The date code on the sidewall indicates a
November 2018 manufacture date. Judging by the wear
pattern, it most likely came from a rear engine car. The lab
figures it’s from a late model Porsche, either a 911 Turbo
or a GT3.”
“So what does all this have to do with me?”
“You rub shoulders with all the Porsche freaks in the area.
Any idea who could have done this?”
It’s true that I had an inside line on some of the city’s more
prominent Porsche owners, but I’m no stool pigeon - no
matter how high and expensive the stool is. And after seeing
what I saw, I figured I’d handle it my own way, Hammer style.
“Come on Hammer, don’t play cute with me; you’ve been
around the horn a few times. You know damn well that some
government ABC agency mandated a policy that forced auto
manufacturers to eliminate spare tires in order to save weight
and meet certain fuel economy requirements.”
McNulty sounded more like a politician at this point, but
he was right . . . dead right.
“You know what they do, don’t you, Hammer? They
purposely don’t include a spare tire in the trunk of the car.
They just throw in a dinky air compressor, and an overglorified
can of fix-a-flat that’s supposed to cure all your
tire ills. And frankly, Hammer, that just doesn’t cut the
mustard these days.”
“Are you done McNulty? Am I free to go? If I hear
anything, you’ll be the first to know.”
“Sure, Hammer. Get outta here. Blow.”
I walked outside into the cold early morning air, just
wanting to clear my lungs. It didn’t have to be this way.
There were plenty of alternative solutions besides a fancy
can of fix-a-flat. Donuts, space saver spares; anything was
better than the green goop.
I pulled at my Lucky Strike with a hearty drag, sucking all
the smoke into my waiting lungs. I exhaled slowly, savoring
the feel of the escaping smoke.
Morning was just dawning when I walked out of the
garage. Slivers of sunlight started to peek out from across
the horizon. Before I could summon another Uber driver, I
spotted a cherry red ’65 Mustang fastback across the street.
Its left rear tire was flatter than an armadillo on a Saturday
morning FM road. The owner was a cute little brunette with
legs that went in all the right directions. Ever the gentleman, I
scurried over to offer some assistance.
In the Mustang’s trunk, there was a full size spare tire with
a fresh, authentic Firestone Wide Oval G70 redline bias ply
tire - and a bumper jack to boot. How old school can you get?
Turns out she was an old school girl, and I’m an old school
guy. I changed her tire, and she kindly offered me breakfast . . .
at her place. We ate around noon. Right then, life was good.

LMNHED’s Mavs & Mochas Adventure
by LMNHED (981 Cayman S in Racing Yellow) and its owner, Rob Turner
photos provided by Paul Moseley
LMNHED had been looking forward to this Mavs &
Mochas for months - chance to hang out with many of its
yellow Porsche brethren. Today’s M&M featured yellow
Porsches in all their eye-popping, “pull me over officer”
glory. It flashed its lights, “Come on, let’s go!” followed by a
quick ride from Denton to The Colony and Turbo Coffee and
Pizza. It’s a great place for a Porsche gathering; it has Turbo
in the name after all. Before all was said and done, seventeen
yellow Porsches showed up. But the devil is in the details:
the car I want!’” The 914 just smiled, “Ah, it good to be
cool again.” “You were never uncool!” LMNHED said,
“People are rediscovering just how special you are.”
LMNHED’s friend is a Speed Yellow 997 4S. It’s funny
- the two cars started planning this version of M&M more
than a year ago at a Cars and Canolis. OK, they had some
help from some human Porsche owners (Matt Wilson and
Derrick Tate) who do a great job running M&M. But they
looked pretty happy; well, more like conspirators really.
Contact me to learn how you can
get the most out of retirement.

Left to right: Seventeen yellow Porsche’s is a lot of yellow. Dave Spencer, Pixie Mosley and Ashlee Adams. It’s not just anyone that call pull focus from
an RS but our own Jack Griffin is up to the task. It is a little easier when you brought the car in question but sometimes, it takes just the right pants.
Speed Yellow, Racing Yellow, Light Yellow, and Sunflower
Yellow, although Speed Yellow had the upper hand with a
majority of the Yellow attendees sporting that color.
“Pull me in, next to the 914, across from the 911 RS.”
LMNHED told its driver. Good company indeed. The 914
belongs to Scott and Katie Scheetz, their third Porsche.
It is a ’73 with it original 1.7 L motor replaced with a
newer 2.0. Of course, Jack Griffin brought a show stopper
- would you expect less? He drove a friend’s Light Yellow
(yes that is actually the color’s name) ’73 911 RS Touring
unicorn - one of only a handful. Wow, that is a nice friend!
There was a Speed Yellow 968 Cab (another unicorn)
and a Racing Yellow Macan GTS with red interior; the
owner said it was likely 1 of 1 – crazy! LMNHED was
happy; it was nice to see them out in the wild. The 914
and LMNHED were talking in hushed tones when the
914 heard its owner Katie Scheetz say, “It’s so much fun
to watch people react to the yellow cars! Yellow is such
a happy color on a car and it seems to bring a smile to
everyone’s face. The best part was seeing several young
children walk up to the 914, point at it, and say, ‘That’s
For a lot of people, the thought is a yellow Porsche is
a yellow Porsche, but when you get that many together
it is easy to see the subtle (and sometime not so subtle)
differences. Speed Yellow has a lot of orange in it, and when
viewed next to a yellow like Racing Yellow, you realize
how different they are. In the case of Racing Yellow, it is so
bright - almost a Skittle color - and you can see there is a
little bit of green in its hue.
The last yellow car to show up: a brand-new Racing
Yellow 718 GT4. All the other yellow Porsches had an
intake of breath – whoa! “Hey, good to be here.” It said.
There was a subtle flashing of lights all around. “Nice rear
wing! Are those PCCB’s? Did your owner stay with the
sports seat or go all in with the GT2 seats?” You know, the
usual questions Porsches ask each other.
LMNHED was happy, and turning on PSE, it told the
remaining Porsches it had been a good event as its driver
pressed the go-pedal. It shouted goodbye as it hit the redline,
slamming into the next gear and announcing the piling on
of speed as it started its trip home.
See you all next month at the next M&M.
Off-Road Racing a Cayenne GTS: Locally
by Igor Tulandin

Autocross Series: Rescheduled Event 3, Lone Star Park
by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
photos by Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images
Sometimes called “autocross on
dirt,” RallyCross is a timed solo
competition held on loose surfaces
such as grass, dirt, mud, but without
the jumps typically associated with
Rally on TV.
We have already seen the
Cayenne and Macan capability
at our Autocross events. One of
these drivers (yours truly) heard
about RallyCross and
decided to give off-road
competition a try.
It was a typical Sunday
morning as I pulled
up to the starting line
at my first RallyCross
event, held in Ardmore,
Oklahoma on September
20, by a new up-andcoming
Texas RallyCross. I have
spent the last two years
honing my car control
skills at PCA autocross
events, so I figured it was
time for a new challenge
with my 2013 Porsche
The starter gives me
the green light, I mash
the throttle, and I’m off,
with an ever-growing
rooster tail and billowing
dust cloud behind me.
As the tires claw for
traction on the uneven
terrain, Porsche Traction
Management (PTM) does
a stellar job shuffling
power around to the tires with the
most traction, even in sport mode
with PSM off. Approaching the first
corner, I was able to apply what I had
learned from the countless hours of
studying rally driving technique the
previous night. LIFT, TURN, WAIT
and LIFT, TURN, BRAKE are the
ways to initiate weight transfer and
rotation in Rally driving, but also the
same method taught at the Porsche
Ice Experience held in Finland.
This was my chance to finally
learn and get comfortable with left
foot braking as well. The key is to
initiate rotation on corner entry and
make any adjustments via throttle
instead of steering. By minimizing
the steering angle, the AWD system
becomes more rear-biased, thus
allowing continued slides around
the corners. The course continued,
meandering side to side with everchanging
conditions ranging from
grass, dirt, mud, and even some
elevation changes. This is where
Porsche PASM and air suspension
really shined by independently
adjusting each shock within
milliseconds. By the end of the first
run I was hooked, and continued to
improve my times run after run as I
made my way up the leaderboard.
The adrenaline rush was like no
other and at the end of the day I was
already looking at attending another
two-day event hosted by Lone Star
RallyCross the following weekend
in Bridgeport, Texas.
That week my anticipation and
excitement grew until I arrived in
Bridgeport September 26-27 and
unloading their rally
spec cars off their
trailers while I
pulled up in a stock
SUV on street tires.
This was the big
leagues of rallycross
and some nationallyranked
after meeting the
who were very
some of the nicest
folks you can meet.
The course was
muddy and slippery
in the morning but
transitioned to dry
and fast in the
ruts and mounds of
loose dirt along the
edges. My times
continued to drop as
my speed increased and my driver
inputs became more natural and
subconscious. In the end, my
decision to attend paid off with two
podium finishes: 3rd Place on
Saturday and a 1st place finish on
Sunday in stock 4WD class against a
sea of Subarus. The Cayenne didn’t
just survive, it won, and showed the
crowd that Porsche’s longstanding
Rally heritage lives on.
We had a total of 101 drivers
(getting in 606 timed runs) at Event
3 (rescheduled from April due to
the pandemic), 12 of whom drove
Porsches, and five of those were
ladies! The course designer made a
difficult track for this event, and a lot
of pylons were knocked down all day.
Each down or out cone costs a twosecond
penalty, so that hitting even
one cone costs a lot of time.
In the four-door Class P0, the
Macan S driven by Gajik Farmanyan
took it to Igor Tulanden in his

Maverick Marktpreis: 993
by Peter Wen
Hissssss . . . you hear that? That’s the sound of the Porsche
bubble deflating. No, the bubble didn’t burst, but it sure
is losing altitude and is coming back down to Earth. This
month we review the 993, the last air-cooled generation 911
and the poster child of the Porsche bubble.
The final air-cooled 911 generation, Type 993, was
produced from ’95 to ’98. It was loved by the public and
journalists alike upon introduction. With its classic Porsche
good looks and modern performance, it is one of the best and
most desirable 911 generations.
Average valuation for an “Excellent” condition 993 coupe
reached an astonishing $80,000 in 2016. Since then, it has
declined 22%, to roughly 2014 levels. Today, Hagerty values
a “Good” condition 993 Coupe at around $44,500.

At Hagerty, our love for cars and their owners drives our
business forward, allowing us to offer you better
classic car insurance coverage for less.
So there’s a pretty good chance
you know this guy already. Maybe
you have never met in person, but
if you read Slipstream, he is often a
guest contributor. Frankly, that’s how
we “met,” and it wasn’t till some
time later in 2017 I finally put a face
together with the writer at - what
else -but a Mavs & Mochas.
Generally, if he’s there you
will know his racing yellow
Cayman S aka LMNHED and
definitely will walk away with
a box of his favorite candy.
So here is the next in my
series of “conversations” I
would like to share with you
. . .
Rob Turner, Member since 2001
2014 Cayman S and
2013 Cayenne Diesel
Bill Kruder: Let’s start off with
the usual. Where are you from?
Rob Turner: Well that’s a good
question (laughing) and that
could take up most of this
interview. So I was born in
Lexington, Kentucky and from
there, let’s say I moved a lot.
My parents divorced and that kind
of started the moving. So here goes
the list: St. Louis, New York City,
Queens-Flushing Meadows, Long
Beach (no not that one but the one
on Long Island made famous in the
40’s and 50’s when the Mob lived
there. Remember the scene in The
Godfather when Sonny was shot at
a toll booth? Historically that would
have happened in Long Beach),
Paris (yes that one was the real one),
Austin for my Freshman-Sophomore
high school years, and my Junior-
Senior years were back to Lexington,
Kentucky and then Milan, Italy.
BK: You weren’t kidding when you
said you moved a lot.
Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
RT: I know, right? I actually counted
up the schools I attended for K thru
12 and it’s FOURTEEN (smiling).
BK: So college?
RT: I returned from Italy to attend
UT, getting my BS in Business
Rob and Kim Turner
BK: I know there is a story of your
bridge year between HS and college?
RT: With me there is always a story
(laughing), but yes there is. I had the
chance to go live with mom and stepdad,
who at this time were living in
Milan, so I went for a year. I always
had musical talent, figuring I could
play an instrument and sing, so when
I got to Milan I met a band that
was looking for a bass player and a
singer. Well, as luck would have it,
I aced the audition, so I joined the
band, called Better Than Nothing,
and we proceeded to tour around
Italy. It was great fun until one day I
got a call to appear before an Italian
magistrate. He asked me if I was
working in Italy and I said no. Then
photos provided by author
he held up a poster for a show at a
club with a photo of the band on it.
He asked if that was me in the photo.
I asked him how many weeks I had
till I got booted out. He said two – I
booked a flight home.
BK: So how did you end up in Dallas?
RT: Well in the mid-80s all
the jobs seem to be up in the
Dallas/Fort Worth, area plus
my mom had divorced and
moved there, so I guess you
could say it was the job market
that prompted the move. It
was about 1986; I moved into
the east Dallas area near Swiss
Ave, called the Munger Place
BK: How did you meet Kim?
RT: I had started my own
business - this was 1987 -
and was waiting tables in
the evening to make ends
meet. A fellow waiter said his
girlfriend knew someone that
needed a date to her company
Christmas party. So I figured
what the heck, and she set us
up on a blind date. So we met
at 311 Lombardi (where I was
waiting tables) in the West End, and
when the date was over I knew I was
going to marry her.
BK: Hmmm, did she know that?
RT: Well maybe not right away but
after that first date we just kept
talking and seeing each other, so
I think she finally got the idea. We
married three years later in 1990,
and we now have two sons: Nick, 28,
and Dylan, 26.
BK: Let’s switch gears and talk cars
now. What was your first new car?
RT: It was a 1986 Acura Integra RS -
it was such a great looking car back
in the day.
BK: And what was your first Porsche?
RT: Talk about another story! It was a red ‘72 914
with a 1.7-liter engine. So in 1983, while still in
college, I was importing gray market cars from
Germany. Basically I was the middleman between
the seller in Germany and the buyer here. So I
decided to buy myself a car and find this 914 through
a third party. It was dusk; the sun was fading, just
shafts of light sprinkled with dust entering through
a high window into a large warehouse full of cars
in Karlsruhe, Germany. I saw a low red 914 sitting
in a corner, hugging the shadows, just begging me
to buy it. Well, weeks later, the car shows up at the
port and I get a call to pick it up. I go and see this
rusted-out 914 sitting there and think, what the
heck! Where’s my car, I mean the one I saw? Well
let’s just say I should have listened to my contact
in Germany who warned me about this particular
third party. I did drive and own it for three years
BK: Now I know you have had, shall we say, several
Porsches over the years?
RT: As a matter of fact we have owned 14 over the years.
Our first together was in 1990. Kim and I bought a black
on black ‘87 944S. Next we bought a ‘76 930, then an ‘86
944 Turbo (track car), ‘99 Boxster, ‘93 968, ‘01 Boxster S
7777 WARREN PARKWAY STE 325, FRISCO, TX
(our first yellow car – infamously totaled at Boxtoberfest),
‘06 Cayman S, ‘04 Cayenne, ‘86 944 Turbo (another
track car), another ‘01 Boxster S (I call it the red one),
‘02 Boxster S (Lemonhead 1), and lastly our Cayman S
(Lemonhead 2) and Kim’s Cayenne Diesel.
BK: So as a hobby you picked up writing. You have a series
of action adventure books called “The Driver (a Marc
Lange Novel).” How did that come about?
RT: Ha, another story! In 2010 I nearly died. I had been
skiing outside Denver (in Winter Park) and on the last run
of the day, hit some ice, crossed my skis, and went down
hard. I had heard a pop as I tumbled, and sure enough it
was my knee/leg. Once I got cleared to leave I immediately
flew home. So a few days later I was watching TV late -
everyone else had gone to bed - when suddenly I couldn’t
breathe. Lucky for me, my son Nick heard me calling for
help before I had passed out. He found me unresponsive
and shook me violently and I came around. I got to the
hospital to find out I had pulmonary embolisms. A tiny
one can kill you; I had three. Had Nick not
found me I would have died. Well, after seven
days in ICU I came home and started to write
“The Driver.” At the right is a link to the book.
BK: Wow, that’s quite a story! Ok, so on a lighter note:
what’s the deal with Lemonheads (for those who don’t
know, they are a sour hard candy)?
RT: Well I love me some Lemonheads, and back then I was
traveling a lot; you know some people chew gum, some
smoke, but me? Man I can eat some Lemonheads, and I
sort of became addicted. Then like so many things it just
kind of became my theme and that’s how the last two cars
became LMNHED, because of their color.
Thank you Rob for Driving Friendships for nearly 20

Love (and PCA) Is In the Air
by Vanessa and Clark Randall
Engine Transplant: In Good Hands
by Mike O’hare
photo provided by author
Vanessa Fernandes and Clark Randall are Mav PCA members
whose relationship has blossomed through participation in our
club. It all started on a blind date back in 2016. We met for
dinner at the House of Blues in the Dallas West End. Clark saw
that the only parking available was valet, and, in typical fashion,
he looked for a better deal (he is a financial planner after all!).
The parking attendant told him that he could park in an adjacent
lot. So, after finding just the right spot at the end of the row
for his black 911 Cabriolet (so there was only a 50% chance
of getting dinged by a stray door), he went in the restaurant to
see his mystery date. We had a great evening of food, music,
and conversation before leaving and walking to the parking lot
together. As it turned out, Vanessa had parked in the same lot.
She told him that she got lucky, as a woman was just leaving as
she arrived, and offered her spot that still had time left on the
meter. What? Time left on the meter? I didn’t know that this was
a paid lot, remarked Clark. As he walked up to his beautiful
911 with newly painted custom wheels, he found not one, but
TWO big yellow metal boots on his wheels – one on the front
wheel and one on the rear. I didn’t know this was a PAID lot, he
remarked. As he frantically scanned the surroundings, he saw
the pay meter on the other end of the lot. This was also where
the parking enforcement sign indicating the boot warning and
company phone number was located. Vanessa offered to wait
while the attendant came from another location to unlock the
boots, but Clark told her to go on home (he REALLY wanted to
vent after she left). At the time, he did not know that his Porsche
was the most impressive part of the evening to Vanessa.
They started dating on a regular basis, taking fall drives in
the Porsche around Dallas and especially around White Rock
Lake. On one particular drive, when they were driving with the
top down and perhaps exceeding the speed limit by just a skosh,
Vanessa blurted out, “I love this car . . . I might even marry
you!” After having only dated for a couple of months, this gave
Clark the confidence he needed to ask her if she wanted to go on
a trip together. He had recently joined the Maverick Region and
heard about the Porsche Palooza event in Arkansas. She agreed
to go. We were both excited and nervous at the same time; this
would be a considerable challenge to our young relationship,
since traveling together tends to reveal one’s true personality and
traits. But it could also be a fantastic time. It turned out to be
a little of both. Since long time Mav members Larry and Cathy
Hampton were going (friends and financial planning clients of
Clark’s for over 30 years), they would at least have someone to
help keep the conversations going during any awkward pauses.
Our first Palooza ended up being a fantastic trip. At the
time, we didn’t know that the group of Porschephiles we drove
with would become such good friends, or that Palooza would
essentially become our anniversary trip each and every year.
Beyond the special place that Palooza has in our hearts, the
people in the Mav PCA chapter have become an integral part
of our lives. We worked on the Mav board together helping
with the monthly Happy Hours, we regularly go on tours and
rallies together, and visit with friends at Mavs & Mochas and at
club parties. One of the most important things that Mav PCA
has done for our relationship is it has helped us create our own
friendships together. While we each brought our own friends
into our relationship, the friends we make through Mav PCA
are made together.
After four years of dating, we were married in January of this
year. While the Coronavirus has put a damper of many of our
usual social events, we have managed to be able to stay involved
in PCA events since many of them are, by nature, socially
distanced in separate cars. We were sad to hear that our Palooza
anniversary trip was cancelled this year and are anxious to go
again in 2021. But we’ve made up for it with our own mini Hot
Springs trip with our dear friends, Phyllis and Jimmy Gallegos.
Vanessa has said that the next chapter in our Porsche
relationship is for her to get her own Porsche – perhaps a Macan
(she is frustrated that Clark’s 911 is a manual and she can’t drive
it). Clark is not so sure about that. He’s got his eye on a Targa
for himself. Either way, we will continue to grow in our young
marriage as Mav PCA Porschephiles
We all know that gut wrenching
feeling, (like you’ve just been punched
in the stomach by a welterweight
boxer) when one of the red warning
lights illuminates on your cars control
panel. At least that’s the feeling I
experienced when my 991.1 GT3 lit
up a crimson warning that read, “
reduced engine performance – possible
to drive on”. “Possible…. to drive on”
– yeah right – well that’s exactly what
I did, directly to Porsche Grapevine.
As fear, anger, and uncertainty
raged through my body, I tried to
reassure myself that my warranty had
to be the golden ticket. As I pulled
into Porsche Grapevine, I was greeted
by Service Manager Ryan Breshears
who reassured me my GT3 would be
evaluated with TLC (tender loving
care). After some diagnostic testing
and spirited test drives the prognosis
was determined. A critical engine
flaw………… critical as in serious,
no good, just plain bad.
To NO amazement, Ryan and
team Grapevine jumped right into
action engaging Porsche North
America to assess the details behind
the engine flaw and the activation of
my warranty. After a short waiting
period the resolution was established
– Porsche was going to replace my
engine with a brand new one!
Like an anxious parent, Ryan
kept me fully apprised of the
“transplant” from the engine removal
process (see pic) along with allowing
me the privilege to unveil the brand
new replacement (see pic)! What
could have been a disastrous
experience actually turned out to be a
very professional, courteous and
satisfying one. A special thank you to
Denette, Ryan and Juan from Porsche
Grapevine’s Service Department.

DIY: You Mustn’t Resist the Resistors

On a Saturday back in July, I was sitting in some
middle-of-the-day Frisco traffic after a long
drive, and I noticed that the needle on the
oil temperature gauge was getting a little
too close to that red danger zone. I figured
the air-cooled engine wasn’t coping well
with Texas’ extreme summer heat and I
would have to relegate myself to 7:00 am
Thankfully, I was wrong. The problem
was not ill-planning in Germany, and
how could it be? Germans are known
to be meticulous people!
It turns out that the resistor that controls
the low-speed setting for the oil cooler fan was broken,
so it wouldn’t kick on to help things cool off until the oil
was much hotter. The resistors (there’s another with the
exact same part number that controls the AC condenser)
are known to fail around 70,000 miles due to the extreme
heat cycles they go through, and my odometer is well past
that number. It is recommended that you
change both at the same time because AC
leaks can occur if the AC condenser resistor
is not working. You can test to see if yours
are working properly by jumping their
respective relays. Both resistors are located
deep in the front fenders, behind the front
bumper cover and headlights; these areas
have high air flow to help the resistors from
burning themselves up.
Half of the oil cooler fan resistor greeted
me as I was removing some trim from the
passenger-side fender to get to it. It was
actually in much better shape than most of
the other ones I have seen. It’s a very tight
squeeze so you will either have to remove a
lot of things, have small hands, or have a kidassistant.
Some people simply unplug the broken resistors
and piggyback new ones, placing them in areas that are easier
to access. You should only have to replace these once in a
lifetime so I do not see the harm in doing it by the book, and
it keeps them in those high air flow areas.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
Well here we are again. Just you and me and the myriad
of things that we could talk about. It’s a little early to wax
nostalgic about the passing of another year, but I’ll be plenty
happy to see this one go. I might even find a pair of those
stupid glasses everyone seems to wear on New Year’s Eve in
an attempt to see the future just a little earlier. But there is
still a little bit of 2020 we need to get through to get there.
Why don’t we get through it together with some friends?
Why don’t we all meet at one of the upcoming Founders Day
events? Debi and the crew have done a great job organizing
a day that has something for everyone. I mean when do
you get to do donuts in the parking lot at the Plano Police
station? You’re right, we’re Porsche People, we don’t do
donuts. So gauche... but remind me to tell you about that
one time in high school later. So maybe we’ll bring donuts
to the Plano Police station if we don’t eat them all at Mavs
& Mochas before we head up.
Speaking of Mavs & Mochas, it’s Turbo time. If you
have a 911 turbo, this is the one you’ve been waiting for.
The Nordstrom parking lot will be full of whirling turbines
to ogle and enjoy. There will still be time to update your
Christmas list after all. It’s also a good possibility that club
president Bill Kruder won’t make it home from Christmas
tree shopping before the event, so you might get a chance to
see ye ole’ 356 in Holiday trim. It’s a great photo, so bring
your battery operated sweater with the bells on it. I know
there is some controversy surrounding the whole “Ugly
Holiday Sweater” title and we don’t need anything else to
argue about so let’s agree to just call them festive okay?
The event really gets rolling in Grapevine. Scott and
the gang will have a chance to show off your polishing
skills. This is a People’s Choice event, which means we
get to decide who wins. What fun. And all the while, we’ll
have our choice of tasty things to nosh. I’ll meet you at
the bar though. I’m looking forward to seeing what crazy
concoctions Monkey Shoulder brings this year.
But alas, the fun can’t last forever, so we’ll need to
get back to what is left of 2020. My hope is that soon,
we’ll be able to let the memory of what an N95 mask is
fade from our minds and resume our regularly scheduled
programming. I hear NASCAR is heading to COTA in
2021, so the pandemonium will continue. I will need to see
that live though. Let’s plan a trip. Let’s plan lots of trips.
What a weird year, should we even talk about the Browns?
Doesn’t it seem like that is kind of an alternate universe kind
of thing? Oh well till next time, enjoy the drive.
