Board Botschaft: Third Coast 2020

by Chris Flaugh, Region Treasurer

What the heck is Third Coast? That’s exactly what I

wondered when I first heard about this annual gathering

of Porsche 928 owners. There are 928 gatherings on the

East Coast and West Coast, so why not have another one

somewhere in between? And, since this event is hosted

by north Texas-based 928 parts supplier 928sRus, it

made sense for it to be in Texas. This year was the 20th

anniversary of Third Coast.

As in previous years, the November 6-8, 2020 event was

held in Marble Falls, Texas. About 200 miles from the DFW

area, attendees also came from as far away as South Dakota

and Indiana. While not everyone drove their 928 to the

event, there were over 20 928s in attendance, representing

a wide range of years, colors and conditions……quite a

sight to see all these sharks in the hotel parking lot. Social

distancing protocols and masks were the rule for the

weekend, along with smaller group sizes when dining at

local restaurants.

On Saturday, attendees had a couple of road trip options

to exercise their 928s, including COTA to watch some

vintage racing,

and/or some

local wineries

and distilleries.

Followed by

the traditional

Saturday night

gathering in

the parking lot

amongst the


adult beverages

and cigars

may have been

enjoyed outdoors, in a socially distant manner, of course.

I made the 500 mile round trip in my 1980 928, with no


Paul Moseley

mishaps, other than a failed muffler which dropped to the

ground after I parked the car in the garage at home. Did I

mention that this car still has its built-in BEL radar detector

that the original owner had installed in 1983? It still lights up,

but I’m not sure how effective it is….a newer Escort Passport

was also plugged in for backup. Thanks to 928sRus for

hosting this event. If you own a 928, you probably already

know 928sRus and Roger Tyson. If you don’t, you should.

Additional sponsors of this event included current Slipstream

advertiser OCD’tailers. It was a great weekend for 928

driving, responsibly connecting with old friends, and meeting

some new ones. Until next year……stay safe out there!

Paul has been with PCA a little over eight years, and brings a talent to our club from his flashy

career as a professional photographer. Over the years Paul has captured some really great moments

thought the lens of his camera. Paul’s experience with taking photos at live action sporting events such

as NASCAR has made it a great asset to have him attend our HPDE Track Days with camera in hand.

Paul understands the beauty of a Porsche, and seeing him snap photos as the cars pass with each

lap makes them all look like checkered flag champions. We have all seen someone at just about every

one of our events with a camera or smartphone snapping pictures of all of our wonderful cars and the

people. Paul is no different; in fact he enjoys sharing his knowledge and technique when it comes to

getting the perfect shot.

Each month here in Slipstream, the photos used come from us, the club members. Many of the great

photos are spotted on our social media sites. Recently we decided, as a club, how great it would be if we

could share all of these great photos in one place, rather than having them scattered around the internet. Paul has stepped into a new

role with the club as our Photography Chair. You may have seen some of his great photo contest ideas he has posted on our social

sites, and he is working hard behind the scenes to come up with a digital way for us all to share our photos. Having them in one

place makes it a snap when we need a photo for an event poster or to go along with an article. Paul is helping us get the exposure

we need by keeping our club Fueled By Volunteers. Please join me in congratulating Paul as our Maverick of the Month.

Maverick Club Racing: Returns to Eagles Canyon Raceway

by David Hodges and David McBee (Region Club Race Co-Chairs)

photos provided by John Sandusky

Eagles Canyon Raceway was the site for our 2020

Maverick Region PCA Club Race. The weekend of October

17-18 had over 100 PCA club racers and HPDE drivers

attacking the 15 turns of the fabulously refurbished ECR

2.7-mile racetrack.

There were a few races within the race, as we hosted

the 944 Texas Shoot Out Championship, the Spec Boxster

(SPB) Eagles Canyon Cup, and 944 Eagles Canyon Cup.

The first Eagles Canyon Cup Trophy winner in SPB was

Livio Galanti.

Many thanks to our sponsors:

Life Time Roofing of America

Fifth Gear Automotive

We could not have hosted the

race without their support.

with Mitchell finishing second, José third, and Pat fourth.

That is Club Racing at its best! Well done guys!

Mitchell won both the 944 Texas Shootout

Championship and the 944 Eagles Canyon Cup trophy.

We would also like to thank all the volunteers: working on

grid, in the pace cars, helping with hospitality, registration,

and at tech. A big thank you also goes to Wendy Shoffit

for running registration for the 20th year. WOW! Thank

you, times 20. Cliff Blackshear did not attend the event due

to the COVID-19 concern, but this would have been his

20th year working our Club

Race. Again, thank you

times 20, and hope we see

you at ECR next year. We

could not host these events

without the hard work of

our volunteers.

COVID-19 delayed

much of the 2020 PCA Club

Race schedule and caused

us to reduce the fun social

gatherings of a traditional

Club Race weekend.

Hopefully, we will make up

for this by hosting an epic

Saturday evening party at

ECR in 2021!

Please save the days of

October 16-17, 2021, for

next year’s Maverick Region

PCA Club Race at ECR.

Words just cannot

describe a Club Race

weekend, which to me

is about the beauty of

the cars, attacking each

corner on track during

a race, and hanging out

with great friends in the

paddock. We will let the

pictures tell the stories.

If you have any

suggestions about how to

improve the 2021 Club

Race, please shoot us an

email at cr@mavpca.org.

One great story about the camaraderie of Porsche

Club racing shines through in the 944 class during

Sprint 2. Pat Heptig had a few mechanical issues in

Sprint 1, but the 944 gang sourced parts and Steve

Coomes wrenched on the car until the last minute

before the start of Sprint 2. Since Pat DNF’d Sprint

1, he was starting last in class. José Ayala and

Mitchell Butaud both also chose to go to the back

of the class to race against Pat. Jeff Wiggins took the

win, but the backmarkers worked through the field,

More than 50 women entering their journey with

breast cancer will receive hope and encouragement in a

gift box thanks to so many Mavericks coming together

with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).

Charity Chair Jimmy Gallegos, Phyllis Gallegos, and

Julia Cleath worked with NBCF founder Janelle Hail

and her son Kevin Hail, COO, to put on the wellattended

Mavs & Mochas on October 11 in Frisco.

The event featured Eric Flattery with a truck

from Melissa Black, live music by Eleise Trenda, and

giveaways from the NBCF and their staff. Attendance

topped 110 people, including ten of our masked Lady

donations of $1,135, and $500 from the club.

Member Moment: Jon Drake

I was destined to own a Porsche when my first car

purchased in high school was a 1973 VW Beetle –

essentially a 1969 Porsche 912 with a different body

and smaller engine with a two-barrel carburetor.

In my early years, I owned numerous sports cars,

preferring DE events to really push the limits. It

seemed I was always comparing my times and

performance to Porsches on track. When my cars

would run hot, or their brakes would fade, the

Porsches kept on going and going.

I finally had enough, sold my Corvette C6 Z06, and

bought the Guards Red 2004 GT3. It took about 10

seconds in the driver’s seat to realize I had finally

reached heaven, and I have never looked back. The

GT3, essentially stock, does everything I tried to do

in all my other cars through countless modifications.

It is so reliable that I can run it hard at the track and

then drive home afterward. I love the fact that it is

THE last Porsche model with zero electronic driver

assists, save for anti-lock brakes. I love to actually

drive the car, be better than other drivers with my

heel-toe shifting, and feel on the edge of control

through my seat, controlling everything through

steering, throttle, and brake.

I was perfectly happy with just one Porsche until I

found myself following a wide-body 993 Carrera

4S on a road trip to Eureka Springs. Even my wife

commented on how aggressive and good that

wide-body looked. By the end of the trip I was so

obsessed with the look that I was determined to find

a perfect representation of that particular model.

After a year of looking at 964 Carrera 4s and 993

wide-bodies, I finally found THE ONE. It is a 1998

Carrera S, all of which are wide-bodies. It is THE VERY

LAST run of the air-cooled era. I was particularly

excited as I viewed it as having book-end models:

the last air-cooled 993 and the first water-cooled

996 GT3.

The similarities are many. Neither one has electronic

driver assists, save for anti-lock brakes. Both have

yellow calipers, color-coordinat ed seat belts, white

gauges, GT3 sport seats with external-color-painted

seat backs, and GT3 steering wheels. My 993 has the

Turbo II Aero Package, and I converted the bumpers

to Euro-spec by removing those ugly bumperettes.

The GT3 has a nice aggressive rear wing.

The 993 drives totally differently from the GT3. The

handling and feel is more cart-like than the GT3.

It obviously is much slower, but the driver feels

more engaged. The GT3 was a beast of a machine

in its day. I am constantly blown away by how much

had changed from the 993 models to the 996, and

especially the GT3. I can’t begin to describe the thrill

in feel and sound of the Mezger engine revving up

to 7500 rpm before shifting!!! The only things they

have in common are that the engine is in the rear,

and both models have managed to maintain almost

perfect 360-degree visibility in the cockpit. Yet,

while I am driving either one, I am thinking “This

one is my favorite!”

If I buy another, it might be a Type 356 for my

wife, who absolutely loves the Karmann Ghia body

style. Personally, I would tend to lean today to

the new Targa, as that body style has always been

my favorite. Who knows? One thing though: I

simply cannot envision ever getting rid of my two

Photography Contest: Round 1

by Paul Moseley, Region Photography Chair

photos provided by Michael Preston

The October 17th Mavs at Mayo Performance gathering “shifted gears” (See how I did that? Clever.), and hosted our

first, and certainly not last, Photography Contest. Our gracious hosts offered a very generous prize to the winner, a Porsche

oil and filter change (a $250.00 value!).

The photographers were to enter a three-photo “portfolio”, a photo inside, a photo outside and a photo of people. The

judges, Chris and Brian Amond (with Mayo Performance), club President Bill Kruder, past Slipstream editor Jim Hirsch and

current editor Kurt Scaggs chose Michael Preston’s entry as the winner.

Mavs judge’s comments.

“I had picked Michael Preston as the clear winner almost right away. The best “people” shot, creative shop angle and nice

solo shot outside. He’s got a keen eye!” - Jim Hirsch

“Every one of the submissions had great pictures but, to me, three (Preston, Durovick and Linenschmidt) did the best job

of capturing the atmosphere of the event and the spirit of the contest.” - Brian Amond

Keep a eye on the Mav Region website and social media postings for more photo contests!

The Modeling Gig

by Mike O’Hare, Region Tech Sessions Co-Chair

I never considered myself anywhere

close to a GQ Model. However, when

I received the call from “my buddy”

asking me if I wanted to partake in a

men’s clothing line catalog photo shoot I

was beyond shocked! Then “my buddy”

explained further: “No Mike, not you! –

your GT3! An agency wants to use your

Porsche as a prop for the models.” My

GT3 . . . a modeling gig – a paid modeling

gig - my car making money for me . . . I

thought, how cool is that. Where do I sign?

Well it was all set; my car was going to

be in the backdrop for J. Hilburn’s men’s

fall fashion catalogue. After signing a

contract and one epic detailing I was on my way to downtown Dallas for the shoot. Upon arrival I was greeted by the

production manager, wardrobe staff, client director, and prop associates who kindly instructed me where to place the car

for the shoot. All the “Hollywood” amenities were available for my use, including an air-conditioned motorhome, hot and

cold beverages, snacks, and first-hand looks at some serious threads. I was amazed at the amount of time and work that

goes into a shoot like this. After six hours of filming, my GT3 was done for the day and ready to return to its boring life of

metropolitan street drives. A special thanks to “my buddy,”played by Michael Baynton.

6th Annual Halloween Porsche Gimmick Rally

by Mark Danielson

photos provided by Tom Heuerman

It’s rare when a Halloween event

actually falls on All Hallows Eve, but

since anything seems possible in 2020,

this really should have come as no

surprise. Earlier, the full moon raced

Unlike other rallies, Ginger and

Tom Heuerman designed this event to

be one-hundred percent electronic. In

theory, their many hours of preparing

the route and questions this way meant

up to their phone’s voice commands

for instructions. Unfortunately, the

Heuermans didn’t count on devilish

gargoyles sabotaging some phones,

ours being amongst them. Before even

and shortly after getting back on track, we pulled over to

double-check our position. While stopped, a fellow rally

Porsche pulled alongside to check on us. After explaining

our dilemma and that my wife and I had just swapped

phones, they nobly offered to lead the way and we quickly

pulled back on the road right in front of a Sheriff’s patrol

car. Almost immediately after, my wife’s phone gave a voice

command to turn right so we did. Although this move

ditched the cop, it also meant we lost our rally guide. (Second

sigh.) Quickly realizing this voice command erroneously

directed us off the route, we decided to go with Plan C and

switched our phones back, knowing that I would have to

constantly scroll the phone to keep it from going blank.

On a positive note, the cop that had been following us had

pulled someone else over and was now out of the game.

Feeling confident we were back on the correct route, we

began searching for the windmills, cemeteries, street signs,

and other things our ghoulish hosts had selected for us.

Though it seemed odd no other Porsches were sighted, we

still felt confident because we were definitely seeing objects

listed in the rally. Of course, confronting a half-dozen

weekend bicyclists riding line-abreast should be expected

on a two-lane road, but they soon moved into a single file so

we could pass. Soon after, a motorcycle policeman coming

from the opposite direction began waving us to the side to

make way for an oversized load convoy. After complying, he

The Rally had quite the motley crew, from Ginger’s flying squirrel to Adam Tibbits and Patrick Bukowitz as lunch complete with condiments the

event was not dull. Carey Spreen channeled his inner Patrick McGoohan as Number Six from the 60’s show “The Prisoner”. Mark and Lyne Danielson

threatened to take the event over and pillage and plunder, but were eventually talked out of it with a first place treasure.

to drop before the sun rose, and the

brilliant red clouds deemed the sun

the winner, warming the chilly air

with its presence. By 9 am, polished

Porsches began streaming into the

White Settlement Community Center’s

parking lot with costumed drivers and

navigators inside.

14 December

the answers could be instantly tallied,

and they were confident everyone’s

phones would navigate them to the

Red River Station BBQ in Saint Jo

near the Oklahoma border.

The first car headed out shortly

after ten, its driver confident in making

the first left turn. After that, it was all

leaving the parking lot, my phone

showed the third turn on the route

to be our first. And while the route

was in blue, it didn’t have any “zone”

information, making it impossible to

answer any zone-related questions.

(Heavy sigh.) Less than two miles

into the route, we overshot a turn,

gave a friendly wave, though his gaze seemed unsure about

seeing a pirate and his wench inside. Once the convoy had

passed, our Porsche returned to the blacktop and rapidly

closed in on its destination.

By the time we arrived at the Saint Jo Square, all but

a few Porsches were in. With the remaining cars showing

up within minutes of our arrival, it was good to learn we

weren’t the only ones who had problems with the electronic

route. But since the point of any rally is to have fun and

drive a different part of the country, no one seemed upset.

I must say that when it comes to cooking, the Red River

Station BBQ knows what they’re doing. Their brisket was

some of the best I’ve had, and my wife equally enjoyed her

turkey. The restaurant’s outdoor setting provided plenty of

room for everyone to spread out and let the uninvited flies

enjoy the leftovers.

Of course, in every competitive event there must be

winners, and for the first time there was a sudden death

runoff for Third Place. Some talked while others eagerly

watched Carey Spreen and Charles Povana duke it out

with a quiz on the evolution of Halloween. As it were,

Carey narrowly edged out Charles to take the coveted

award. In Second Place were Raul and Lisa Pena, while

the proud Champions of the 6th Annual Halloween

Porsche Gimmick Rally went to none other than Human

Taco Patrick Bukowitz and his Hot Dog navigator, Adam

Tibbits -- the very people who offered to lead us across the

finish line. Well done, guys!

But what Halloween rally can go without costume

awards? Receiving the Second Place award crowned

Balloon Clown Carey Spreen and his navigator Sue Crimm

double winners. As for First Place, well, shiver me timbers,

that award went to none other than Pirate Mark and his

lass, Lyne Danielson. That’s right, we may not have won

the rally, but we still came home with gold treasure. ☺

Whether it be rallies, Sunday drives, laps around a

track, or a solo drive, there is never a bad time to

unleash a Porsche.

President Andy Cost designed a fitting second to last

2020 season Course for Autocross Event 9. He set up

three passes over the large hill at the Lone Star Park

site with off-camber turns, large sweeper, a fast slalom,

decreasing radius turns and flat out straights.

Three Porsche SUV’s, including rookie James St. Peter

fought it out in Class P0. Igor carried the torch this time

in his Cayenne GTS over the two Macans. Class P1 was

an air cooled 914 2.0 and 911 Carrera class with two

drivers in each of the cars. See the results nearby. Carey

Maverick Marktpreis: Top 10 Appreciating Porsches

by Peter Wen, Region Merchandise Chair

Our Slipstream advertiser, Hagerty, recently hosted a

seminar for the Maverick Region members. They shared

Hagerty’s unique insights on the Porsche collector car

market. According to Hagerty, the following are the Top

10 appreciating Porsche models over the past five years.

Interestingly, while the air-cooled 911s are adequately

represented, the top of the chart belongs to the frontengine,

inline-four 968! In fact, five out of the top six

spots are Porsches with either 4- or 8-cylinder engines.

Take note, Flat-Six fans!

It is great to see these transaxle and mid-engine

Porsches getting noticed by the collector car market. It’s

even better that many of these are still affordable.

Thank you to Brad Phillips and Nolan Eberl-Coe from

Hagerty for sharing such valuable and educational

insights with us. Happy Holidays!

18 December


This month marks the 50th

interview I have done with random

members. Like most interviews, it’s

all about making connections just

by showing up. Many of you know

about this FloMo (Flower Mound)

group that meets every Friday at

about 8:30 am at Novel Coffee. So

over the last two to three years I have

gotten over there occasionally to visit

with 12-15 gathered. Well, as always,

I introduce myself, and I start talking

to this guy that does nothing but

smile and laugh; he just could not be

friendlier. As

months pass

I notice that

each time

I’m there he

is driving


cool, from

his 930 to a

‘67 VW bus.

And as luck

would have

it, I would

see more

of him at

several club

activities always with that big

smile . . . thinking we all would

smile wide too if we had a 930.

So here is the next in my series of

“conversations” I would like to share

with you:

Chris Fernandes, Enthusiast since 1978

1983 930,1996 993 C4 and 1976 911

Bill Kruder: So you have been a

member since 2018 but you have

been an enthusiast for 42 years. How

did this get started?

Chris Fernandes: Well when I was 16

my uncle was a service member with

team DATSUN (Nissan), the Rally

team in Kenya, and Porsche just

happened to have their facility next

door. When I had a chance to visit

him and their shop, he would take

me next door. Porsche was using the

Martini livery and I would see these

very cool cars. The one that caught

my attention was my favorite driver,

a Swede, Bjorn Waldegard, who

drove the Porsche Carrera RSR.

BK: This was in Kenya?

CF: I know right (laughing)? That’s

where I grew up; I was born in

Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. My

parents are Portuguese. My dad was

born in Zanzibar and my mom in

Chris and Kris sporting the jackets that ‘sparked’ it all!

Tanzania. What many may not know

is that Kenya was actually colonized

by Portugal before the British took it

over, so there is large population of

Portuguese there.

BK: So when did you come

to the states?

CF: That was in 1983. I

had graduated high school

and had a scholarship to

the University of Central

Oklahoma in Edmund.

BK: What did you study?

CF: I received my

undergraduate in

Computer Science and

then went on to get my

Masters in the same.

BK: So how did you end up here then?

CF: A job (laughing). There wasn’t

much there for me, so DFW was

the place to go. So in 1991 I started

working for Pier 1 Imports in Fort

Worth, writing code for them.

BK: And today what do you do?

CF: About seven years ago I became a

contractor for a New York insurance

company where I manage and

develop code for the “cloud” piece

of their business.

BK: So how

did you and

Kris meet?

CF: We met

in a club in

1990 after

a Super

Bowl party.

A friend


us. Frankly

it was kind

of funny



when we

met I had this leather bomber

jacket on just like she did. So

when she walks up to me, she notices

my jacket and the first thing she does

is grab my jacket and say, “Where did

you get that jacket?” She then tells

me she works for Dillard’s, where

Chris tells me his father was asking him not to lean on the car, a ‘62

beetle. He was apparently quite particular about it.

they had some bomber jackets stolen,

and wanted to know how I got it. She

thought I stole it (laughing)! So my

initial feeling was “this girl is kind of

pushy - not so sure about this.” She,

on the other hand, knew

right then I was the one.

So we dated a couple

months, and then one

day she broke it off,

telling me that when I

decide I’m ready, to let

her know. Well that was

1990, and we married

in 1991. I figured it out

I guess (smiling). We

have been married 29

years now.

BK: Now that’s a story!


CF: We have two. Katy,

our daughter, is 25 and

she helped me restore

our ‘73 Karmann Ghia.

Not long ago, she moved back

home, as she got a job promotion.

Katy apparently must like us, as she








bought a house but decided to rent it

out and stay with us (laughing). Then

we have our son CJ, who is 18 now.

He saved up all his money and just

bought himself a 2020 WRX.

Katy, Kris, CJ and Chris Fernandes with the Flo Mo famous Hippy Bus

BK: Ok, let’s talk cars. What was

your first?

CF: The first car I drove was my

mom’s VW Beetle,

which she taught

me how to drive

when I was 12

(laughing). But my

first to own was

a truck actually.

It was a Datsun

1200 pickup that

outfitted as an offroad

rally truck.

In Kenya, rally

stuff is a huge


BK: So first Porsche?

CF: That was in

2008. It was a

silver 2004 996

C4S. I told a

friend to buy it,

and when he was

tired of it I would

buy it. We had

that car for about

four years, until in

2012 we bought

the 930.

BK: So I’ve heard there is a story

behind buying the 930?

CF: Oh yes (laughing)! We had a

neighbor who had this ‘74 rotting

outside and I stopped by one day,

admittedly maybe

looking a little ragged

(smiling), but I knock

on the door and this

guy answers and he’s

kind of mean, basically

telling me to get lost. So

some time goes by, and

I drive over again, this

time in my 996. This

time he actually invites

me in for coffee. I think

the ponytail I had

scared him the first time

(laughing). Anyway he

tells me he has another

in the garage. We go

back and there’s the 930 covered

in dust and boxes. Well that was

the car I dreamed of as kid - I had the

poster and all - and I wanted that one.

It took me nearly five years of bugging

the guy for him to finally sell it to me.

BK: Not many know - ok the FloMo

guys do - but you have this thing for

VW buses?

CF: Well, who doesn’t (smiling), but

yes I guess you could say that. We have

three right now. We have the Hippie

bus, it’s a 67, that I do drive around.

I just put a rack on it and bought a

surfboard while in Florida. Let’s just

say the other two are projects.

BK: Ok one last thing: rumor

has it you have this alter ego

involving music?

CF: Ha! Well I guess you could say

that, but yes, as a hobby you might

say I’m a DJ. It started out when I

was 15 and I just stayed with it. It’s

paid for a lot of car parts (laughing).

You might have recently met Chris

too, just showing up at the Founders

Day Family Affair where he was

spinning some great tunes for us

Mavericks! Thank you Chris for

Driving Friendships!

A Draining Experience: Tech Session at Porsche Grapevine

by Michael Baynton, Region Tech Session Co-Chair

photos provided by Author

Rest assured, I’m referring to 2020 in general, not

our most recent tech session! However, we did get to

the bottom of things and discussed various draining

issues that can befall our Porsches.

It was a gorgeous morning to make the drive to

Porsche Grapevine, a beautiful and

expansive facility conveniently located

near DFW Airport. Our generous hosts

provided coffee, kolaches, and other

breakfast goodies as our attendees

assembled in the perfectly clean

workshop. Covid-related precautions

(waivers, temperature checks, masks,

hand sanitizer, limited attendance)

in place, we gathered safely to learn

about the various water drains that are

engineered into our Porsche vehicles.

Lest you think this is a convertible-only

issue, our main demo vehicle was a

Cayenne. Lifting the hood and removing several plastic

panels revealed the areas where leaves, debris, and dirt

can gather to slowly block the built-in drain passages.

Frequent cleaning using a vacuum or other means to

keep these areas free of detritus is highly recommended.

Lastly, we were able to observe how leaves and dirt

can clog the condenser and radiators on a Boxster.

Front bumper and wheel well coverings conveniently

removed, it was plain to see how easy those openings

on the nose of our sports cars can accumulate incoming

debris. Left unchecked, this clogging can lead to

overheating—especially in our hot Texas summers.

As is usually the case, inexpensive preventative

maintenance can forestall a more expensive repair

further down that (dirty) road.

Our next “patient” was a Porsche 911 Cabriolet,

and our knowledgeable technician repeated the same

process of reviewing drain passages under the frunk

and around the folding roof. Having a roof that goes

up and down at the owner’s whim naturally invites even

more opportunities for leaves to gather in inconvenient

locations. Failure to inspect and clean all drain passages

can lead to leaks and even flooding on the inside of

your vehicle if rain or car wash water doesn’t have a

clear run-off path.

A huge thank you to Porsche Grapevine, Liz Shafton,

Denette Allen, and the team of technicians who ably led

the demonstrations! We greatly appreciate their

hospitality and willingness to provide our members

with a great dealership experience. And for those

members who were unable to attend in person, we

covered the event with a Facebook Live session. As we

look toward 2021 and an uncertain Covid environment,

we will continue to look for innovative ways to present

tech topics to you, our members.

Covid Relief Tour Recap

by Robert Turner

Covid be damned. Well at least

for a few short hours on a sunny

and hot north Texas summer

afternoon. Fifty-five cars trekked

Now it was time to hit the road and press the

loud pedal to the floor, unleashing thousands

of Porsche horsepower on the unsuspecting

backroads of West Texas.

out to Weatherford to queue up

for the Covid Relief Tour 2020.

Tour masters Ted Martin and Sam

Bryant laid in a course on some

excellent back roads that swept

through Dennis, Lipan, Bluff Dale,

and Paluxy, ending up on the square

in downtown Granbury. There were

many first-timers on the tour; there

were even first-timer PCA members

attending their very first event – ever.

We met Maggie and Javier,

attending their first-ever event in

their first Porsche, a 987 Cayman.

Javier told me it was always his

dream to have a Porsche, and now

that they do, they want to drive

it in events like the Covid Tour,

giving it the “beans,” feeling that

rush of acceleration. They recently

joined the PCA and were thrilled

to be a part of this event, telling

me how excited they were to hear

about all the programs and events

that the Maverick Region tees up

on a regular basis. We spoke to

Mav President Bill Kruder and his

wife Debi. They admitted they had

never been this far west, all the

way out past Weatherford, “As we

passed through to the west side of

Ft Worth I turned to Debi and said

‘Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in

Kansas anymore.’”

Our group was greeted by Mike

Scott from the Granbury Chamber

of Commerce. He told us how

excited the Chamber was to have the

Porsche folks descend on their lovely

town. And as an added bonus, the

parking around the courthouse was

designated “Porsche Parking Only.”

Oh yes, the usual challenge in finding

a parking spot in

downtown Granbury

was suddenly and

completely mitigated.

Now it was time to

hit the road and press

the loud pedal to

the floor, unleashing

thousands of Porsche horsepower

on the unsuspecting backroads of

West Texas.

Ft. Worth really is the gateway

to the west, and by the time you get

to Weatherford, you can begin to

see mesas off in the distance, and

trees start to thin out, replaced by

mesquite and more than a few cacti

growing just behind the ever-present

barbed wire fencing

lining the sinuous

stretch of blacktop.

Indeed, we were

outside the DFW

bubble and just

starting to see the

transition to the

western plains. It

is beautiful country

and the road less

driven rewards

your patience

with some wicked

cambered corners

that allow a welldriven

Porsche to

take a set and rocket out of a tight

corner. Just ask the car behind mine,

as I decided “brakes be damned!”

and entered each corner to see just

how fast I could take it. LMNHED

approved of the pace.

Granbury itself is a gem;

interspaced along Lake Granbury,

the lake is never more than just a

few hundred yards away. The square

looks to have survived Covid better

than other small towns we have

photo provided by Louie Devega

visited, with most of the shops and

restaurants remaining open, albeit

with policies in place to combat the

spread of the virus. As promised,

the square had parking set up for

our Porsches and we were greeted

by other members of the Granbury

Chamber of Commerce. We all

milled about a bit, along with curious

onlookers, taking in the collection

of Porsches, then suddenly everyone

disappeared, heading off in search

of lunch or shopping. Granbury

had to be happy that we decided to

make it our final destination of the

Covid Relief Tour 2020.

These tours really provide an

outlet. It allows us to be Covid-close

to other PCA members, our Porsche

family, but allows just enough pedal

pushing fun to reward time spent in

pursuit of discovery, open roads,

and friendship. It’s like Chris Flaugh

said: “It’s been so long since we’ve

had one of these tours - I love these

drives. They are some of my favorite

events that the Mav Region puts

on.” Indeed. And you should too.

Sign up for the next tour and the

next rally and the next Concours!

It’s great when we can gather (social

distancing practiced) and share our

passion with other Porsche owners.

See ya on the next tour!

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

The future is coming, whether we like it or not.

For the second time this year I’ve put an electric car

on the cover. But it’s not just an electric car, it’s an

electric Porsche. And from what I hear it bends time.

As I write this, Porsche has released an amazing

display of past concepts that have never before been

seen by the class of “the public” that I am categorized.

I kind of love some of them. In some we can see the

present future through the eyes of the designers in

Stuttgart from as far back as 2005. And in others,

hopefully, we glimpse the future.

Described as “mild to wild” these are what design

geeks like me dream of. An electric minivan, the

Renndienst, I’m embarrassed to say is one of my

favorites. It might be that while honing my emergency

cornering skills in the family Grand Caravan (sorry

Mom) I imagined it was a prototype Porsche under

the skin. Don’t act like I’m the only one that indulged

in that fantasy. Driving a Porsche minivan would be

the exact opposite of what I do each time I turn the

key now. Instead of pulling the younger me forward to

drive my current joy, I would be pushing my current

self back in time to correct the storyline.

If minivans aren’t your thing, you might like the

Vision Spyder, because it’s perfect. Inspired by the

1954 500-1500RS Spyder, it gets it all right in my

opinion. I certainly hope we see some of these design

cues in the years to come.

The great news is that you too can own one of

these yourself. Sort of. The release is a teaser for a

new book “Porsche Unseen” which is only published

in German at the moment, so I’ll have to read it like

my son “reads” his Spanish books. Pictures only.

I’m getting used to the idea of owning an electric

car. Hopefully a very fast one. I don’t think it’s going

to take me back to that parking lot from my youth, at

least I hope it won’t. But I imagine that it will escort

me kicking and screaming into the future. Hopefully

with a smile in my eyes to match the one on my face.

It is the season of reflection and renewal. While

2020 hasn’t been what I was hoping for, good things

have indeed happened despite our best efforts.

Hopefully we can focus on them as we move

forward. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah,

Kwanzaa, Boxing Day or Omisoka. I’ll see you out

there: Enjoy the Drive.
