MARCH 2021

Take your electric performance

further with a lower charge.

Presenting the new Taycan, starting at just $79,900.* But despite its lower price tag, this

rear-wheel drive version of the all-electric Taycan still packs a punch. It’s a true Porsche

sports car, boasting up to 402 hp, accelerating from 0–60 mph in 5.1 seconds and

producing charge power of up to 300 kW. And at Park Place, this attainable, no-compromise

Porsche comes with personal service and a total dedication to your well-being.

That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.


I totally get it.

Board Botschaft: Your Opportunity to Sample the Porsche Parade

by Carey Spreen, Region VP

You may have noticed that I write a lot about the

Porsche Parade, PCA’s annual week-long convention that

celebrates all things Porsche and PCA. Those of you who

have not attended a Parade may be wondering what the

big deal is, while those of you who have participated in one

already know. So at the risk of revisiting this subject, I’m

going to try to convince you to at least consider going to

the Porsche Parade this year, in part because it’s only 850

miles away from the DFW area in 2021.

The Parade is a week-long (Sunday through Saturday)

gathering that happens in a different part of North America

each year, in a three-year west-central-east rotation. French

Lick, Indiana, which is where this year’s edition will be held,

is considered “central,” and it will be the closest Parade

until the 2024 event (the location of which has not yet been

announced); the 2022 (east) location will be Pocono Manor,

PA, and the 2023 (west) location is set for Palm Springs,

CA, both of which are multi-day drives each way.

Each Parade consists of competitive events, social

events, tours, banquets, seminars, and kid-oriented stuff

all week long, so it’s definitely a family affair (and petfriendly

to boot). Please don’t let the word “competitive”

make you uneasy; you don’t have to sign up for anything

you don’t want to do. A lot of folks go for the tours or

the banquets or the social events or just because they’ve

never been to that part of the country before. Plus, you

don’t have to stay all week if your schedule doesn’t allow

it. Also, don’t worry about not knowing anyone there – a

good-sized contingent of Mavericks attend each year, and

you to make a room reservation at one of the headquarters

hotels. Phase 2, which opens on April 7, is when you get

into the details of who is coming with you, and which

events (if any) you want to participate in.

You also do not have to stay at the HQ hotels, although

it’s hard to beat the convenience; there are several affordable

hotel chains in the area if you don’t mind driving a short

we’re happy to show you the ropes and help you figure

out what’s happening. Especially this year, since the 2015

Parade was also in French Lick, and many of us attended

that time as well. There will likely be a caravan or two

heading up there from DFW, so you can travel in the

company of other Mavericks if you like.

By the time you read this, Phase 1 of registration has

already taken place, opening on Feb 10, although it’s not

too late to register, as Registration remains open until June

13. Phase 1 just makes you an official entrant and allows

distance to get to the events, many of which are held at (or

at least begin at) one of the HQ hotels.

The entry fee is $230, which includes both an entrant

and co-entrant. Competitive events, tours, and banquets

are all à la carte fees (typically $20 to $50 per person for

events, and about $70 for most banquets).

I hope that I have at least piqued your interest in the

premiere annual PCA event. If so, you can check out the

details by visiting https://www.porscheparade.org/. We

hope to see you there!

Maverick of the Month

Selected by Landon Stogner, Region Volunteer Chair

Michael Durovick

sponsored by Autobahn Porsche

Michael has been with the PCA close to four years now. If you don’t know

who he is, I’m pretty sure you are familiar with his work. Over those four years

Michael has put his photography talents to work helping out at many of our car

shows and special events. If you attended our Mavs & Mochas event a few years

back at Highland Park Village, you may have had a photo taken of you in your

Porsche in front of the historic Village Theater. Another time may have been at

Lakeside Market in Plano as part of a People’s Choice Car Show. These were

two events where Michael stayed put in one spot for hours, capturing the perfect

angle of the many Porsches that arrived. Michael was the one behind the lens of

our two feature articles here in Slipstream spotlighting the Women of PCA.

The most recent one was our Oct. 2020 feature bringing awareness to the

National Breast Cancer Foundation. Michael put in many hours planning out

just how to position all of the Ladies and their Porsches to fit in single shot.

Michael had also picked a perfect background so each woman could have

an individual shot with her car. Go back and take a look if you missed it. It

was one of the many cover photos that Michael has contributed to Slipstream

over the years. It’s thanks to Michael’s passion and dedication that our club

stays Fueled By Volunteers. Please join me in congratulating Michael as our

Maverick of the Month.

This is the only photo I was able to find. I guess it’s the old saying of being behind the lens, not in front.

We are committed and passionate about the care of your Porsche and use only Genuine Classic Parts.

Whether you own a classic, new or preowned vehicle, Porsche Grapevine, An Avondale Dealership looks forward

to providing you an Elevated Experience along your ownership journey.

February Mavs & Mochas: Polar Vortex Cometh

by Bill Kruder, Region President

photos provided by Chris Low, Jimmy Gallegos, Jim Mango and Landon Stogner

“Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall

keep the postman from his appointed rounds.”

This is the postman’s oath, and one might say our

Maverick motto, when it comes to Mavs & Mochas.

Some 25 cars and nearly 40 hearty members

braved the 20-degree temperatures Saturday

morning, all for the sake of having coffee with

friends at the Frisco Fresh Market on Main just

east of DNT.

Let’s talk about the cars that showed up. We

had one air-cooled, our ‘96 993, a 2020 Cayenne

Coupe, a Cayenne GTS, three Macans, a 928, and

water-cooled 911s filled out the rest.

Credit goes to Matt Wilson and Ajai Cadambi,

who get the award for the furthest drive this

morning at 65 miles, and Julia and Greg Cleath

for the shortest: three blocks!

And yes, this was our Q1 North Texas Food

Bank food drive headed up by Jimmy Gallegos

collecting in excess of 264 pounds of food.

So if you missed this one, we look forward to

seeing you March 13 at Turbo Coffee in the

Colony. Remember the postman’s oath . . . we will

be there!

Do It Yourself: X73 Suspension Install

by Matt Wilson, Coffee Meets Co-chair

photos by Matt Wilson

I recently got the urge to tackle another project on

one of my P-cars..it had been several months since I

dropped the engine out of my 997 turbo to pin the

coolant pipes, but that is an article for another day.

full X73 kit which includes front and rear struts and

swaybars, plus mounting hardware.

Today I decided to install the Porsche sport

suspension (X73 option) on my 981 Cayman S. There

are lots of suspension options available for these cars,

but I was really wanting to use Porsche parts and it

effectively turns the car into an X73-

optioned car from the factory, with

a slightly lower ride height (20mm)

and slightly stiffer shocks. I’d like to

take this car to the track soon so I

figured this was a great complement

to that plan.

I purchased the kit (P/N 981-

044-400-05 for a PDK car) from

my friendly Porsche parts guy at my

dealer who matched the cheapest

online price I could find. Less than

$1,600 all in; not bad in the land of

genuine Porsche parts, and it came

with all of the one-time-use nuts and

bolts needed for the install.

I have a BendPak scissor lift in the garage, so it

certainly makes projects like this easier. I parked the car

on the lift and raised it just high enough so as to have

easy access while sitting on a stool. The job is fairly

straightforward, and involves swapping out the front

and rear struts, and the front and rear swaybars. There

are really no “special” tools needed that most DIY

folks wouldn’t find in their toolboxes, EXCEPT for the

bolts on the rear axle; those were M9 triple square bits

which I had to order up from my favorite online tool

vendor. Otherwise it’s mostly short and deep metric

sockets (10mm,16mm,18mm,19mm,21mm), T55

torx, 3/8” and ½” ratchets, plus various extensions

including some swivels. I did use an impact wrench

for a lot of the larger nuts (>16mm) but is not really

necessary. Finally, you will need a good set of torque

wrenches (I have both 3/8” and ½”) for when you go

to put things back together.

For the fronts, after removing the wheels, I removed

the brake caliper and disconnected the speed sensor and

brake wear connectors and hung the caliper out of the

way. After that, it’s just a process of undoing the various

bolts for the tie rod, diagonal arm, lower control arm

(LCA) from the front subframe, swaybar drop link,

and front strut to the wheel carrier. Once all of this

is removed you can remove the whole assembly (wheel

carrier/rotor/lower control arm) and set it aside in a safe

place. Now you need to open the frunk and remove the

three 13mm nuts the hold the strut in place and slowly

remove the strut/spring assembly from the car.

The process is repeated for the other sidde to have

both full struts/wheel assemblies removed. Now it’s

time to swap the sway bar, which requires removing

a bunch of nuts/bolts to lower the front subframe to

allow the swaybar to come out toward the front of the

After removal of the front strut and wheel carrier/brake assembly. Note the

caliper is hanging out of the way and the swaybar has not been removed yet.

car. You first have to remove the front under tray panel,

and then loosen the 4 subframe nuts/bolts toward the

rear, followed by the 6 in the front along with removing

the 2 power steering rack bolts. Once all this is all

loosened you can slowly lower the subframe to allow

the swaybar to slip out toward the front of the car.

Next month we’ll cover putting the front back

together and tackling the rear.

Autocross Series: 2021 Autocross Classifications

by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

photos by Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images

Each year, we review, and

update if needed, the MAVPCA

autocross classes. Since many of

our participants also run some

of the other 40 autocross events

in North Texas, we try to keep

our preparation and groupings

consistent with the Sports

Car Club of America (SCCA)

groupings and Performance Index

(PAX), the handicapping system

that is updated annually based on

results from all over the country.

This makes it possible to compare

results across all classes.

For 2021, we still have our

own Porsche Classes, built

into the SCCA model used by

our autocross partner, Equipe

Rapide Sports Car Club (https://

autocross.com). This year there

are a few changes to be more inclusive and encourage

participation by our members. The first seven classes

Owen Coulman leaning into a corner in his GT3

have a minimum of a 200 treadwear rating street tire

restriction, and must be street legal.

PV is the Vintage Porsche class

for all street-legal 356 and 912

Porsches. We know they are out

there, and some come to watch

or ride along at these events. We

would love to see you exercising

your cars with us.

P1 has been changed to make a place

for all the front-engine transaxle

cars to come back to autocross. We

know there are a lot of 924, 944,

968, and 928 owners out there, so

we wanted to make a place for you

to play with us.

P4 is for 2010-2021 911 Turbo,

2015-2021 Boxster Spyder and

GTS, 2015-2021 Cayman GT4

and GTS, 2013-2021 991/992 S

and GTS. These are very capable

autocross cars.

PH is the Heritage Classic Street

class, parallel to the SCCA HCS

class. All street legal 914 and all

911 to 1973 and 2.4 liters, both

with up to 7-inch wide wheels fit

here. We get good participation

in this group regularly.

P0 is unchanged and is for all

our four-door models: Macan,

Cayenne, Panamera, and Taycan.

We have had good participation

from the Macan and Cayenne

drivers and would like to see

some of the big sedans this year.

P2 is for the 1974-1994 911,

1995-2012 non-S 911, 2005-

2009 911 Turbo, 1997-2004 986

Boxster/Boxster S, 2005-2021

987/981/718 non-S/GTS Boxster

and Cayman. It’s a competitive

power vs handling group.

P3 is for the 2005-2021 Boxster S

and Cayman S, 2011-2012 Boxster

Spyder and Cayman R, 2004-2012

GT3, 2012-2021 991/992 (not

including S or GTS), and 2005-2012

911 S, GTS, and 911 Speedster.

These guys are fun to watch!

P5 is for highly modified or nototherwise-classified

(NOC) street

legal cars, and tire treadwear

ratings are not restricted. This

picks up the 2013-2021 911

Speedster, 911 R, GT3, GT3 RS,

GT2, GT2 RS, Carrera GT, 918

Spyder, etc. We don’t see them

often but wanted to be sure they

had a place to play with us.

P6 is for all race cars or non-street

legal Porsches. We get some club

race cars and Spec Boxster race

cars that fit here.

Maverick Marktpreis: 928

by Peter Wen, Region Merchandise Chair

“WANTED: Porsche 928 for attempted murder

of 911.” What a headline that would have been? Of

course that’s not exactly how it happened. Back in the

70s, Porsche was headed in a different direction. They

needed a modern car to replace the aging 911 and to

keep up with emission regulations. They wanted a new

flagship vehicle with the best possible combination of

a sports coupé and a luxury sedan. The result was the

928, a grand tourer with a water-cooled V8 engine,

Porsche’s first production V8 powered model and the

only coupé powered by a front-mounted V8 engine.

The 928 was loaded with technological advances and

luxurious features. It won the coveted 1978 European

Car of the Year award upon introduction. It was priced

far above the 911 SC ($110k vs $75k in today’s dollars).

Just 57,998 928’s were built during the model’s 19-year

production run (25k of which came to the US).

Excellence magazine considered the S4 to be “Best

Value”. Only about 3,000 GTS were produced, with

just 482 examples coming to the U.S.

including a shell car without engine and transmission for the

So those of you who have been

reading these interviews the past

four years know how this goes.

For those of you who are new: I

enjoy meeting people. Each month

I write up my next interview and

sometimes it’s someone I met

yesterday, or like this one, over

three years ago. We met at an

All Member Party in 2017, of

course admiring the half dozen

356s that had participated,

including the soon-to-be-ours

‘64 C (Bob Hagestad’s car).

Well, I met him there with

his own beautiful ‘64 C, and

we struck up a conversation

about the cars. Fast forward

about a year later: we buy the

Hagestad and join the Tub

Club, and who is President

but the guy with the very

cool white ‘64 356 C! As the

months went by we would talk

at Mayo’s or the occasional

Mavs & Mochas. Finally, I

said “we would like you to

attend our Maverick board

meetings so that we keep our

two clubs in sync.”

So here is the next in my

series of “conversations”

I would like to share

with you . . . .

George Maffey, Member since 1983

1964 356 C, 1997 Boxster,

and 2014 Cayman S

Bill Kruder: So you know the drill

I’m sure. We start with “where are

you from?”

George Maffey: Well, I was born in

Philly, grew up in Baltimore, then

we made many stops including

Detroit, North Carolina, Southern

California, and Northern California,

landing in Denton in 1993.

BK: Whoa, that’s a lot of places!

How did you end up in Denton?

GM: When I graduated college I

20 March

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

by Bill Kruder, Region President

went to work for Peterbilt Motors

Company in Newark, CA, which

is adjacent to Fremont, located on

the San Francisco/Oakland East

Bay. Then in 1993 they moved the

headquarters to Denton and that’s

where we stayed; same house even.

George and grandson Luke taking a trip on the BMW

BK: So where did you go to school?

GM: I was living in SoCal and when

it came time to pick a college. I

wanted a very small school so I

enrolled at Santa Clara University,

about 5-7 minutes from San Jose

International Airport. I graduated in

1980 with a mechanical engineering

degree and ended up with the only

job I ever had, retiring almost 38

years later.

BK: How did you and Angie meet?

GM: We both worked at Peterbilt,

in those days everyone worked in

one giant office space; it was like

an ocean of desks. I would see her

photos provided by George Maffey

from time to time, and think I even

helped her with car trouble a time

or two. Then one day a friend of

Angie’s came over to my desk and

with a very stern look on her face

said “Just when are you going to

ask that girl out?” Heck, it was kind

of threatening- like (laughing). So,

that was 1982. We dated for

about two years, then married

in 1984.

BK: And I understand you have

three kids?

GM: We do. Sarah is 34 and

lives in OKC; Lauren is 29 and

lives in Tulsa; and George is 26,

living in Sanger.

BK: Let’s talk cars now. What

was your first car?

GM: Here I was, 15-16 years

old, scouring the LA Times

for a car. Ahhh, what a great

car I found: it was a 1967 VW

Karmann Ghia with a 356

1600 Super engine in it.

BK: So you have always been a

car guy then from an early age?

GM: Safe to say I think it’s in

my genes. When I was born,

our family car was a 1953

356 1500 Super cab; my dad built

a platform in the back so that he

could mount my car seat (laughing).

Then in grade school we had a red

‘63 cab. My dad liked to buy cars,

fix them up, drive them 2-3 years,

then sell them for the next project.

BK: And what was your first Porsche?

GM: In 1983 I bought a 1974

914 2-liter “Creamsicle” Limited

Edition; I think only 1,000 were

made. We had that until Sarah

arrived in 1986. It was my

daily driver, making the commute

from Santa Clara to Newark for

three years.

BK: What came next?

GM: Only about a year went by

without a Porsche. In 1987 we

bought the ‘64 356. This time I

was scouring the San Francisco

Angie Maffey with their 1964 356

Chronicle. My dad was visiting

and we found one in Pleasanton.

As we drove up my dad said, “buy

it!” (laughing). Let’s say it needed








some TLC, so I

drove it as a work

in progress; as a

matter of fact it

was off the road

for about


years. I

did most

of the


and some

guys from



to paint

it for me,

and what

you see

today is

that car.

BK: I hear there is a

story with your Boxster


GM: Oh yes! This one was

not planned at all. We

bought it about two years

ago. One day I was out and

about with a Porsche T-shirt on,

and an older woman saw me, telling

me that her husband had passed

away and had a ‘97 in the garage;

she wished it

were running.

Well some time

went on, and

we talked again

about the car,

and at that point

she was thinking

of just getting

rid of it now. I

was like “hold

on a second - let

me take a look

at it.” So I went

to see it. It had

been sitting for

eight years, never

being run. We

talked more and

I bought it from

1972 Not-a-Porsche BMW R50/5

her. We got it home and sorted

things out, finally getting it started,

to find out it had only 13.4K miles

on it (smiling). Needless to say we

finished getting it road-ready and

today it runs like a champ.

BK: Tell me about you and the Tub Club?

GM: I joined the Tub Club in the late

90s, occasionally attending a few

events over the years. Then in 2018

they were looking for a new president.

I had just retired, and as they say, the

rest is history I have been president

going on four years now.

BK: Not unusual when I hear a Porsche

owner has another passion besides

their cars; I hear you have one?

GM: I do. Out of college I bought

a Moto Morini Italian motorcycle.

I would love to ride it up in the

Santa Cruz Mountains. Well, I

never entirely let go of that love of

European bikes. So about 10 years

ago I bought a ‘72 BMW R50/5

followed by a ‘66 R50/2.

Paul Mosley, you might just have a

new friend . . . driving friendships

one BMW bike at a time.

Inspired: Richard Pietruska

by Scott Kellogg, Region Concours Chair

photo by Richard Pietruska

Years ago when I was in college,

I had a great instructor Richard

Pietruska. He was one of the

coolest teachers at the school, at

least to those of us in the Industrial

Design program. He has had many

favorites as well,” said Pietruska. “I

was inspired to create this piece by a

story in the November 2017 issue of

Porsche Panorama. It explained how

Porsche’s 917 delivered the German

carmaker its first overall win at the

motion of the automobile, while

simplifying the basic design lines of

some of the most exotic vehicles of

the past and present.

His work has been featured in

various magazines, including Road

well know automotive designers go

through his classroom. He would

always have a great way of helping

everyone turn out some amazing

designs and art.

As well as being a great teacher

and designer in his own right, he also

does fine art, which we are sharing

here today. If the art of motion can

be captured in a sculpture, Richard

has done it in a remarkable way.

For this particular piece,

PORSCHE 917K – Spirit of Le

Mans, Richard creates a beautiful

speed form capturing the grace and

elegance of the 917K in motion.

“This is one of the most iconic racing

Porsches in history, and one of my

24 Hours of Le Mans during 1970

and then repeated in 1971. The car

also played a leading role in Steve

McQueen’s racing epic film, Le

Mans, promoting racing to a much

broader worldwide audience.”

The fiberglass sculpture is 6’ long

by 22’ wide and features the iconic

Gulf racing colors. The piece is

highly stylized and curved, showing

both speed and motion.

His use of various media –

from paint to tapestries – focuses

on automotive sculpture, using

techniques ranging from bronze

casting to cast resin and fiberglass,

stainless steel and plastics. His

sculptures exhibit the dynamic fluid

& Track, Automobile Magazine,

The Robb Report, Pilota, Octane

Magazine and Garage Magazine.

He is also one of the few automotive

sculptors to have been chosen to

do the artwork for the Meadow

Brook Concours d’Elegance poster.

In addition, Pietruska has designed

awards and trophies for many

automotive events, including the

Car of the Year Award for

Automobile Magazine, the

Cranbrook Concours d’Elegance, the

Petersen Museum and the Newport

Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Taycan Turbo S: It’s a Dream, But It’s No Electric Sheep

by Michael Durovick

Our Maverick of the Month this month is more than just a great photographer with great taste in cars, it turns out he’s a great

interviewer too. Michael recently did a shoot with Wendy and James Shoffit’s Taycan Turbo S and sat down with Wendy to

talk about what it’s like to drive Stuttgart’s latest wundercar and entry into the all electric hyper-sedan.

MD: What were the first few weeks of ownership like

for you?

WS: To be honest, we had some hiccups with some of

the electronics and getting everything set up on the car.

We had great service from Porsche Plano to help make

everything right and we’ve been enjoying it thoroughly

WS: So far it has met all expectations engineering wise…

it’s just stupid fast! There’s no other way to describe

it. It’s amazing to get a 4 door car with 750 HP that

feels as luxurious as it does that can go that quickly and

handle that well. It’s absolute sensory overload from

beginning to end.

MD: If you had to do it all over again, is there anything

you would do differently with regards to options, color,

or interior?

WS: In short, not really. James ordered just about every

feature it had from the white wheels to the glacier blue

headlights to the very cool passenger display. I’m sure

eventually there will be a hack to display Netflix on

there! He’s a big fan of white cars and it really suits him.

MD: Now that the car has a few miles on the odometer,

how does the car make you feel?

WS: It feels… electric! It’s exciting to drive a car that has

generated so much buzz. We had that with the 2015

Cayman GT4 back then, but this is even more exciting

than that. It draws attention for sure and everyone

wants to know just *how* fast it goes.

Thanks to both Michael and the Shoffits for a look at

their new toy. Michael, as usual you made beautiful

design, well beautiful. -Ed

Michael Durovick: Hello Wendy. For those who don’t

know you, please let us know a little about yourself

regarding your time with the Maverick Region or

Porsche in general.

Wendy Shoffit: James and I have been members of

Maverick Region since December 1997. We have held

multiple positions locally and nationally in PCA and

have always wanted to be as involved as we can. We

have made more friendships than we can count with the

wonderful people in the club all over the country (and

some internationally)!

MD: I understand you have quite a bit of track

experience/skills and are DE instructor. Can you tell us

a little about that?

WS: James always knew he wanted to drive a Porsche

on track… I was a little slower to get on board. Since

1998 we have autocrossed, time trialed, rallied, toured,

and participated in Drivers’ Education when available.

James Club Raced for years all across the country. I’ve

always been on the administrative side of things, as DE

registrar (off and on) and CR registrar for about 20

years. James was a DE instructor, but I’ve never tackled

that particular job. I have enjoyed autocrossing most

and competing for some lovely trophies.

MD: What made you decide to pull the trigger and

purchase a Taycan Turbo S?

WS: That was all James! He had been watching the

evolution of the Mission E/Taycan for the past few

years and just knew he had to have it. Anyone who

knows James knows he has to go big or go home! I’m

often figuratively and literally along for the ride, but

you won’t catch me complaining!

ever since. There’s a pretty steep learning curve, though,

with the charging and multitudes of setups involved.

Fortunately we are pretty technically savvy and are

figuring things out as we go.

MD: How does the Taycan handle on the track?

WS: We haven’t tried it out yet, but will soonerishly.

It’s a very heavy car, but with the instant power to the

wheels, it absolutely LAUNCHES! The handling is

amazing on the street and I can only imagine it will not

disappoint on the track. We also plan to try autocrossing

it sometime just for the fun of it!

MD: I know you haven’t had the car long, but for the

time you have, what is your overall impression of

this model?

January Maverick Happy Hour and Social

by Clark Randall

photo provided by Debi Kruder

Our most recent PCA Maverick Happy Hour and Social was

a great success! Many of your fellow club members and friends

joined together via Zoom to see each other, catch up, and share

some much-needed pandemic laughter.

Our sponsor, Clark Randall, CFP® owner of Financial

Enlightenment, a retirement income planning firm, offered a

complementary investment portfolio risk analysis, valued at

$350, to the first Maverick to correctly answer one of two trivia

questions. Our winners were Maverick members Gregory Wilson

and Simon Dirngerger. Gregory knew that Tesla was the largest

company ever to be added to the Standard and Poors 500 index,

while Simon correctly answered that the Biden Administration

has promised not to raise income taxes on anyone making less

than $400,000 per year.

Lisa Ward joined the winners when she received a bottle of

Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon by sharing the best example of

how she spent her money in 2020 – by purchasing a new home.

After the games, we settled in to learn how mixologist, Frank

Zack, creates his amazing tasty cocktails. Many of us followed

along at home, which made all of us winners.

Join us on the third Thursday of every month at 6:30 pm for

Maverick Happy Hour and Social. Check out the details of

upcoming socials at MavPCA.org.

You can test your

knowledge (or Google

search ability) of all

things Porsche by

participating in the

monthly trivia contest

posted online at http://


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 for the January 2021 Trivia, this

month dealing with miscellaneous trivial Porsche items from

the past and present. The winner this month was Wendy

Shoffit, getting all 5 of 5 correct. Honorable Mention goes

to Tom Martin, also getting all 5 correct. In case of a tie, the

winner is chosen by a drawing.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

As I sit at my desk, it’s 8° outside and my mind can’t

quite wrap itself around the idea that it will be 60° in

five days. But that’s Texas for you, it’s always changing.

Hopefully you’ve been able to stop by slipstreampca.org -

our new online home. That will be a change too, but we’ll

still meet here every other month and compare stories.

With spring on the way, hopefully some of those

stories will be about the Maverick events we’ve

attended rather than the new mask we just bought.

If you perused the coming events page, you’ll see a

very welcome sight. Instead of “canceled” you’ll see

“rescheduled”, and many of those rescheduled events

are just around the corner. I’m sure there will be some

changes at those events too, we’re not quite out of the

woods yet, but any time I get to spend with my Porsche

buddies is a welcome diversion from a reality that has

become an almost constant exercise in patience.

There are some really great times upcoming and

I’ve included them a little early because we need some

sunshine. Scott Kellogg will finally be able to host the

Maverick Concours weekend. This is one you don’t

want to miss, the warm up at the Founders Day was

a great first act. Fajitas, drinks and shiny Porsches are

just the kind of things I’d like to be enjoying right now,

believe me. Another favorite you won’t want to miss is

the Bluebonnet Tour out in Ennis (page 22). Although

the club was forced to cancel the organized drive last

year, my family made the trip anyway and saw some

familiar faces. But it just wasn’t the same without you.

I’m looking forward to do it for real this year. We all

need some new bluebonnet photos, right? Last but

most definitely not least is the not to be missed Alle

Mitglieder or All Member Party. The day starts with

the All Member tour (registration required) which

leaves from 455 in Van Alstyne and travels through the

towns of Weston, Celina, Pilot Point, Tioga, arriving at

our destination of Gunter, TX. Stick around and enjoy

brunch at One Preston Event Center Carriage House,

Chapel, and Victorian Estate. New members are our

special guests with FREE registration discount codes

available. Autocross is back, Club Racing is kicking off,

thinking of all of these events are warming me up just

thinking about them.

So it’ll be a bit before we talk again, but I’ll see you

right back here in May. Until then, keep smiling and

Enjoy the drive!
