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.

Maverick Region

consists of much

more than just the

four “Metroplex”

counties (Dallas,

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:

Ed Martelle

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.

How many times

these past seven

months have we

been disappointed,

blaming COVID for

the cancellation or

postponement of a

club event or outing?

Well Saturday,

October 3, a date to

remember, was the

day we pulled off the

unthinkable.

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.

Something tells me Wichita Falls just got a whole

lot closer.

My Kingdom for a Horse

by Hammer

Your mind’s been racing.

Catch up.

Decades of dreaming, fulfilled instantaneously. The iconic 911 Carrera. Legendary

handling, immediate power, and decades of motorsport heritage. It is the full

measure of a sports car. Found only in a Porsche. Porsche. There is no substitute.

The 911 Carrera.

©2018 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of traffic laws at all times.

Porsche Plano

5924 W Plano Pkwy.

Plano, TX 75093

(214) 579-1911

porscheplano.com

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

lottery ticket.

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

character’s head.

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.

– Shout outs to all you Slipstream fans of the noir genre. Thanks!

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.

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

club, North

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

Cayenne GTS.

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

saw competitors

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

with experienced

and some nationallyranked

drivers. My

apprehension

quickly subsided

after meeting the

fellow competitors

who were very

welcoming and

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

afternoon, filled

with ever-growing

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

Cayenne GTS by putting down clean

runs for the win. Ed Mayo took the

win in his 911S over Mark Schnoerr

in the family 914. In this class, there

is a close three-way race for the

season championships with Sigrid

Schnoerr in the lead going into the

last three events. Doug Edney finally

added some real autocross tires to

his 996 and put in some fantastic

times to win Class P2. Reid Cloud

and Wendy Shoffit battled in Class

P3 with their Cayman S and Cayman

GT4, respectively. Reid came out on

top and was also first quick Porsche

again. Scott and Dawn Marie Gray

drove the family prepared Cayman S

to finish one-two in Class P5. Robin

Howard drove her 911 race car to the

win in Class P6. Porsche

performance index top

three were Reid, Ed, and

Mark this time.

By the time you read this,

Events 8 and 9 will have

taken place, but you can

still make it to the seasonending

Event 10, happening

on November 8 at Lone

Star Park in Grand Prairie.

Registration policy is preregistration

only: $45, or

$35 if you join Equipe

Rapide Sports Car Club for

only $20 per year. See the

rest of the dates elsewhere

in Slipstream.

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.

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

Administration.

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

Historic District.

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

(laughing).

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

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

years!

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.

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

Sunday drives.

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.

You can test your

knowledge (or Google

search ability) of all things

Porsche by participating

in the monthly trivia

contest posted online at

http://mav.pca.org/trivia.

Answers are due by the

last day of each month.

The winner of the trivia

contest receives a $25 gift certificate from our sponsor, Zims Autotechnik.

In the case of ties, a random drawing determines the winner.

Here are the questions from the September 2020 Trivia, dealing with

miscellaneous trivial Porsche items. The winner this month was Tom Martin,

getting all 5 of 5 correct. No one else tied with Tom, but we must give Honorable

Mention to Rich Hoffer, who was the only person to get 4 of 5 correct.

1. The 968 CS (Club Sport) was not known for its straight line

speed or 0-60 times, but on a track with many weight-saving

items, it could hold its own. While it lacked the normal deleted

items, such as back seat, radio,

sunroof, center console, etc,

which saved about 200 lbs,

which of the following was

NOT available on the 968CS?

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.
