EDITOR A n g e l a


ow! I can’t believe that it has already been one year since I took over the editor duties from Denise and Chuck Brasile. How time flies! There are still more functions of the publishing software (Adobe InDesign) that I need to learn and the same goes for Adobe Photoshop. It is important to me to continue learning and improving the Going Places newsletter.

I want to acknowledge some of our loyal, long-time members celebrating AZPCA anniversaries for July/August: 39 Years Chester and Jennifer Harper, Jr. 35 Years Stephen and Teddy Lange Donald and Ines Munson 26 Years Dr. Terry and Elaine Maxon 25 Years Bruce Barth Earle Hoyt

This month’s July/August issue has some great articles; Targa in Tribute, Meet A Member and 2017 Festival of Speed, just to name a few. Don’t miss out on any of the summer events, drives, breakfasts and monthly meetings. I’m a big Diamondbacks fan, so Mark and I are already signed up for the for Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Chicago Cubs game at Chase Field on Saturday, August 12th. The seats are great! The trip to Durango, Colorado in August is a perfect time to escape the valley heat. We will be going on that one too! The winner of the Writer’s Drawing for the June issue of Going Places is Chas Wirken for “Experiencing the Porsche Experience Center - Los Angeles”. Chas will receive a $24.00 credit on Motorsportreg, which is good for one year to use on any AZPCA activity. I am always looking for interesting articles, so if you have one, please send it on.

DURANGO TRIP August 20 - 23, 2017 News flash -- August is hot in the Valley of the Sun! Let’s get outta town and head for the mountains -- the Rocky Mountains, that is! The beautiful region around Durango offers lots to do, including one of the most beautiful drives you will ever experience, in the San Juan Mountains in Southern Colorado. If you have not ridden the narrow gauge railway from Durango to Silverton, it is a must-do. Or tour Mesa Verde National Park, the largest archaeological preserve in the U.S., featuring the largest cliff dwelling in North America. There are lots of other things to do in Durango, so whatever your pleasure, you will be able to enjoy it on this trip. Our headquarter’s hotel is the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Durango, where they have extended a special group rate to our club. Located on the Animas river, the DoubleTree is within walking distance of the Durango & Silverton Railway Station and all the restaurants, shops, and historic charm to be found in downtown Durango. SUNDAY Drive to Durango Social gathering at the DoubleTree MONDAY Durango-Silverton RR -or- Mesa Verde National Park -or- explore the the many attractions and activities in and around Durango Social gathering at DoubleTree TUESDAY Spectacular Drive over “Million Dollar Highway” Lunch in Telluride Social gathering at DoubleTree Group Dinner WEDNESDAY Return to the Valley

Sign up for this trip by going to the AZ.PCA.ORG website and using the link on the Event page using the link on the, which will take you to MotorsportReg. Make your reservations at the DoubleTree Hotel Durango by July 26th. You will need a room for August 20-21-22 (checkout on Aug. 23). Use PCG for the group code, but check AAA, Senior, and other rates, as those rates may save you a few dollars more than our group rate. Our group rates start at $194/night + taxes & fees for a room with city view; $204 for a river view room. If you prefer to make your room reservations by phone you may call 970-259-6580. Tell them you are with the Porsche Club, but again, ask about the AAA, Senior, or other rates if you qualify; one of those may get you a better rate. If you wish to ride the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to Silverton make your reservations early: Make your train reservation for Monday, August 21st. I recommend the train/bus itinerary, but you can take the train both ways; that is up to you! If you have questions, please contact Rook Younger at

2017 California Festival of Speed by Bill Phillips


recently attended my first California Festival of Speed. Although I only participated in a small amount of the offerings, I thought I would share my experience for the curious among our Going Places readers. My interests primarily revolve around the old cars and track events, and this event satisfies both. I had thought Fontana was closer - and that it would be cooler - nevertheless, I am very glad I attended, although just for one day. It was the 911 Timeline that really caught my attention this year. The Zone 8 folks solicit 911’s from each and every year since the model’s inception in 1965. It’s not a Concours, and there’s no judging: more like a “Shine & Show,” and right up my alley. I offered to cover the 1985 slot, and was asked to submit my offering, complete with photographs. The car was accepted, and the event added to my calendar. The Timeline was a Saturday only affair, and I prepared for a long day of vintage Porsche immersion. In the weeks before the event, I received several emails regarding the Timeline, including a request that I prepare a presentation explaining the significance of my particular car, and why it is special. This undertaking made a lot of sense to me, and I immediately set out assembling information, photos and articles cataloging the reasons my car would be among the most relevant and intriguing of all the 52 cars displayed. If I do say so myself, the presentation was quite impressive! I traveled to Fontana on Friday, and endured abundant heat and traffic. My “super special” vintage 911 has no cruise or air-conditioning! In planning my travel, it came to my attention that a group of AZPCA track rats were

attending, and I looked forward to some intensive technical discussions, despite my track car remaining in Phoenix. Unfortunately, this didn’t occur according to plan; Friday afternoon LA area traffic was having none of it. Fortunately, I was prepared for this, and simply took my time getting settled in that evening. On Saturday morning, I appeared bright and early ready for the long-awaited festivities. I got registered; positioned the car; and began introducing myself to many of the other Timeline participants. As you might imagine, they came in all stripes and colors. I had a young man from the local area in an Iris Blue Targa on one side, and a grandfather/ grandson combo on the other. The banter that ensued was quite enjoyable, speaking only for myself. It took a couple hours for the line to fill out and, during this interval, temperatures rem ai n ed m i l d t o moderate. After the verbal jousting died down, I began exploring the adjacent garage area where all of the track participants were busily preparing for the time trials. I strolled up and down the Timeline several times and took great pleasure in examining the cars, reading about their stories and speaking with a number of the owners. I also took the opportunity to get to know a couple of my Timeline neighbors pretty well. A retired dentist from San Diego and the young man with the Iris Blue Targa had to endure a lot of contact, but seemed to hold up fairly well. As someone who has owned and worshiped impact bumper 911’s for decades, it was enjoyable to be able to explain the attributes of their cars in way too much detail.

Later in the day, Rook Younger and I had a leisurely stroll down the long row of vendors that were set up between the Timeline and the front straightaway of the racetrack.

We also observed numerous different sessions of time trials that were being conducted throughout the day. To my surprise, I found that watching the time trials was equally enjoyable to the time spent hanging out around the Timeline. A track like this, incorporating an infield road course to go along with some serious straightaways and high banking, is an unusual experience for me. At first, I struggled to understand the allure. By the end of the day, it all made sense. Although probably not for me and my underpowered, “momentum” car, I can certainly understand the attraction of long straightaways and serious banking IF you are piloting a car eager to attain speeds in excess of 140 mph!

I packed it up about 4 PM as I wanted to be back in Phoenix well before bedtime. This was not without some internal conflict as an endurance race was commencing at 4:30. Oh well, there’s always next year.

Targa In Tribute by David Conwill Courtesy of Hemmings Motor News


ollector cars can transport their owners in more ways than just the physical, point-A-to-point-B travel that any vehicle will do. For some, they are time machines, allowing the owner to live or re-live a particular era: the Roaring Twenties, the Dust Bowl Thirties, the Fabulous Fifties, and so on. The right sporty car can transport its owner from the humdrum Interstate to the Autobahn, the mountains of Sicily or the swanky streets of any number of tropical resort cities. For others, the right car with the right history can transport them back into their own past. It may provide a connection with one's adventurous youth or family and friends now passed on. This is the story of that kind of transportation. This Gemini Blue 1972 Porsche 911 T Targa is not an originalowner car in the strictest sense. But it has only been purchased once and was never subsequently sold or given away. Nor, in all likelihood, will it ever come on the open market, if the family and friends of its late owner have anything to say about it. Linda is the current caretaker of the car her late husband, Lloyd, dubbed the Blue Knight. Lloyd purchased his Porsche new in the summer of 1972 at Kendon Porsche Audi in Wilmington, California. Even at the young age of 27, Lloyd was no stranger to Porsches--the '72 was his fourth!

Model Year 1972 was the first for a fresh generation of 911's. Perhaps the most obvious improvement was an enlargement of engine displacement, the second in as many years. The additional displacement came, thanks to an increased stroke, to a nominal 2.4 liters--though actual displacement was 2,341 cc. The change was not made in pursuit of raw power but rather to produce a tractable street engine that would still meet then-current U.S. emissions regulations. Those same emissions rules meant that the basic T variation was in its only year with Bosch mechanical fuel injection. A year earlier and it was carbureted, a year later and Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection was installed. The mechanical injection was shared with the E and S--the T still wore Zenith carburetors in other markets. Even the entrylevel T produced 140 horsepower--38 more than the 1969 Porsche 912 Lloyd had traded in. And it’s worth noting that Car and Driver wrung the same performance from the 911T they tested as they had from a 1970 911S, so the T was no slouch. Also for 1972, Porsche attempted to address some of the 911’s more egregious handling quirks. This was done primarily by improving the balance of the car through relocation of the oil tank to just ahead of the right rear wheel.

This redistribution of weight ahead of the rear axle helped tame oversteer, but did result in some filling-station mishaps, due to the similarity of the oil-fill and fuel-fill doors, though the latter was located on the left front fender. We don’t know if there were any issues of this sort with the Blue Knight, but it was enough He obviously found something he liked in the air-cooled, rear- that, by 1973, the oil tank had been moved back to its old position, engine formula, starting with a Volkswagen Beetle at age 20 and making the 1972 911 unique. progressing soon thereafter to his first Porsche at age 22. His mother supported the purchase, telling him, "If you like it, want Driving ease was also improved for 1972, with the “915” fiveit, then buy it--or else you'll never be happy." With the caveat that speed manual transmission developed for the 908 race car being young Lloyd would be responsible for paying for the cars himself. introduced with a conventional H-type shift pattern replacing earlier cars’ dog-leg shifter. The base four-speed manual transmission and "This one," Linda tells us, "was the favorite... the one he kept, Sportomatic semi-auto were also still available, but given Lloyd’s treasured and had no interest in selling ever." Evidently, speed obvious enthusiasm for driving, it’s no surprise he opted for the and power were what he craved, and he'd finally found that with ultimate shift-it-yourself gearbox. the 911. | 20 |

Though Porsches would continue to get softer and more luxuryoriented in subsequent years, comfort was also not neglected. The Blue Knight is the perennially popular Targa model: a compromise body style that permits the open-air motoring experience of a cabriolet with a modicum of the additional chassis stiffening and rollover safety found in a coupe. The black-leather interior is both durable and visually appealing. Toss in the iconic Fuchs alloy wheels and you have the very embodiment of the classic 911--likely one reason it has endured untouched all these years. From the start, the Blue Knight was the star player in a 1970s California dream, conveying its owner on scenic and fast drives up the coast and to the cabin at Big Bear. Lloyd's mother enjoyed hearing the Porsche's distinctive exhaust note coming up the mountain, "so you can't sneak in," she used to tell her son.

Audra recalls, "I remember how exciting it was to ride in and how it felt like a special occasion. Dad had a look of pride when he drove it." It was 1989 when Linda came into the Porsche's life. Linda and Lloyd met while playing tennis. She recalls fondly going to tennis matches together "in Porsche style." Linda also recollects how well suited the Porsche was to golf outings. "Golf clubs can indeed fit quite well in the back seat of the 911," she observes. But most profoundly, Linda recalls with unconcealed pleasure a drive many years ago in the Payson, Arizona, area. "We enjoyed a beautiful, scenic drive on a crisp, fall day with the leaves changing colors and little traffic on the road."

When Lloyd relocated to Phoenix, the Porsche went, too, and the fun continued. Friends were often invited to form a caravan on visits to Big Bear. Record times were achieved on such trips, thanks to binoculars in the lead and tail cars that permitted high-speed runs without inconvenient run-ins with Johnny Law.

Though Lloyd passed away in 2007, Linda avows an intention to keep the Porsche "always and forever" as a car to enjoy and preserve for drives around town, Arizona Porsche Club meeting outings and "simply to hear the distinctive sound of the Porsche engine."

Lloyd's sporting lifestyle extended beyond cars. Living in the Valley of the Sun, the owner often exhibited his tennis talents, arriving in style at matches behind the wheel of the 911. One memorable trip inspired a close friend and tennis partner's Porsche purchase, thanks to an undulating road and Lloyd's willingness to share driving duties.

That sound alone, to say nothing of the pure lines and distinctive smells, can easily transport friends and family back to happy days with Lloyd.

As happens to most, family life soon became a factor. Fortuitously, the Blue Knight was never sold off in the name of practicality. In the 1980s, the Porsche was granted "second car" status with the arrival of daughters Kristen and Audra. As a further testament to Lloyd's affection, the Porsche never left the road--doing duty for errands and as transportation to swim lessons and school. Both girls recall fondly the distinctive aroma of the Porsche's leather interior and the exciting experience of going to the first day of school in the 911.

"I used to think [the back seats] were the coolest," says Kristen, "as they folded up and down and it was like a mini hiding place. No one else's parents had back seats like those!"

Congratulations to James for capturing the TTOD / TTOM Course 1 Morning Run - autocrossing for the first time in something other than a 914! And congratulations to Brian for taking TTOD / TTOA Course 2 Afternoon Run. Thanks to everyone who came out early, helped set-up, and then put away everything at the end of the day! Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Best Regards, Rick and Kim W Ͳy ηϴ Ɖƌŝů Ϯϵ͕ ϮϬϭϳ Z/s Z

Social Media Spotlight – Focus on Pinterest! by Jan Mackulak, Social Media Chair “Pinterest is a visual discovery tool/app that you can use to find ideas for all your projects and interests!”


t my next live demo, during a monthly dinner meeting, I’m going to show you around the club’s Pinterest page.

You can get a preview by accessing it via your computer at or from your smartphone by downloading the Pinterest app and setting up an account. I guarantee once you start using this app, you’ll be glad you did. I have a personal Pinterest account under the user name “Mack944” if you want to see what interests I have besides Porsches (my Porsche board is called “Vroom, Vroom”). But on to the club’s page... *We have 327 “Pins”, 75 “Followers”, we “Follow” 81, and have 44 Boards! What does that mean? Let’s Break it Down…. A “pin” is a visual bookmark (like sticking a post-it note on a grease board or tacking a note to a scrap board) A “board” has “like-items” where you save your pins (a collection of similar photos, videos, and webpages) You “Follow” people or boards or interests Your “News feed” updates when you go online Your “profile” becomes a snapshot of you

| 26 |

Looking for “Roads with lots of curves”? Do you like playing “Name Those Porsche Colors”? Do you have “Beautiful Drives” with your own ideas from Arizona and neighboring states? Love trying to figure out “Vanity Plate” meanings? Well you can find all these “boards” and others out on AZPCA…give it a look! The most recent board I created just happened the other day. I was watching a movie on TV, and it had a cool Porsche car scene in it. So I wondered, ”How many movies have Porsches in them?” Thus the creation of the latest board “Movies With Porsches”. What one movie comes to mind first? For me I Googled “Risky Business Porsche” and soon I found a few great Porsche “YouTube” scenes from that classic movie with Tom Cruise. That movie kicked off Tom’s career AND made every kid want to own a Porsche someday. Ahhhh. That 928 was never sexier. Then I Googled “Porsche Scene Movies” and found a bunch more “YouTube” movie clips. I’ve loaded a bunch up to this board so go look and enjoy. Besides Tom’s iconic movie, one of my favorite movies is Weird Science. Yes, there is a Porsche in that movie too, go to Pinterest and see! As always, search on “AZPCA” in your computer or cell phone’s browser to find most of our social media venues, type in the underlined url address, launch the app, or just do it the easiest way by finding all 7 social media buttons at !

ou know that Porsche designed the “V-Rod” engine for Harley Davidson in the early 2000s, right? Right?

Let me quote from the Porsche Engineering Services website: “Against the backdrop of a collaboration stretching back to the 1970s, the Porsche engineers constructed a water-cooled 1,131 cc motor based on a racing engine that delighted HarleyDavidson’s demanding clientele both for its performance as well as its imposing sound.” Did it sell? I have no idea. I’m not into Harleys. But I’m sure the work made money for Porsche. And I found the mention of “a collaboration stretching back to the 1970s” to be intriguing. I was curious about what it all means. What other products, that we would offhand never associate with our favorite marque, have been sun-kissed by the golden glow of Weissach engineering? So I delved deeper into the Porsche website, and came across this language: “Porsche Engineering’s development expertise goes well beyond the automotive sector. From the concept of individual components to the planning and execution of complete vehicle developments…. Whether the development is automotive, the styling of forklift cabins, development of the electronics and control of the ‘Sea bob’ water sports device, or even the development of outdoor barbecues….” Now, here’s the best part. The website goes on to say “And yet there is always a bit of Porsche in every development.” Like what? Well, it seems like, unless a manufacturer reveals and tries to capitalize on the input that the elves in Weissach have provided, like Harley did some 15 years ago, it’s tough to tell. Forklift cabins? Outdoor barbecues? Uh, where is the Porsche mystique in an outdoor barbecue? Any outdoor barbecue? Unless the thing is motorized, features radar-based curb avoidance, and offers features like manumatic heating controls, too-hot-to-touch perimeter warning, carbon fiber monocoque cooking area construction and plug-in heating element self diagnostics. All optional, at a premium price over MSRP. Then you know you’re dealing with a barbecue that Porsche has waved its magic wand over. And applied all their intellectual property and marketing know-how from the automotive sector.

What else? Hey, if they can work with a “Sea bob” water sports device … uh, just what is a “Sea bob?” I looked it up. It looks like a giant kickboard that’s motorized - you hold on tight and it just pulls you along, through its own propulsion system. Over the water or under-water. No. Again, no visible sign of the people who brought us the 917, the 918, the 919. Since the ‘70s, yada, yada, yada. Now, if the thing was inflatable and white-water ready, maybe. Think autonomous guidance through Class VI rapids. Selfdeploying paddles with fingertip up-down control. Hybrid rapids-cooled propulsion. Highly bolstered, water-resistant, self-drying sport seats. Water-proofing with neoprene hides would be extra — the first tip that it was a product of Porsche engineering (and marketing.) The styling of a forklift cabin? What? I can’t recall ever actually looking in on a forklift cabin. But I know I’d know one that Porsche has worked on. The giveaway might be the heads-up display for warehouse situational awareness. The park-distance control for heavy lifting. The push-button infotainment system, replete with Apple CarPlay. Or the highly bolstered, water-resistant, self-drying sport seats. Think engineering transference across product lines and categories. That’s one way you become the most profitable automotive manufacturer on the planet. Now, here’s what I’d really like to see. A battery-powered Segway personal transporter that can corner at 1.5 g, hit 60 mph in under three seconds and deliver a range of 300 miles. Why? To lap the Nordschleife of the Nurburgring in under seven minutes, of course. And do it all day, before needing a charge. And, oh by the way, that tasty tidbit would keep some excitement going before the e-Tron gets here, and provide a “have a nice day” nod to Elon Musk. Are you listening, Porsche? Come on, sing the body electric! Maybe they’ll do these things, and maybe not. We may never know. Unless that client manufacturer decides to lift up the kimono and provide us with the goods on how Porsche’s fabled engineering expertise has shined brightly on their product designs. Although you should be able to find some signs, if you know where to look.

BOOK REVIEWS FOR PORSCHEPHILES by Bruce Herrington, Orange Coast Region


by Jurgen Lewandowski, published in 2016 by Delius Klasing Verlag, Bielefeld, Germany.


he outstanding photographs and 'European' layout are bound to make this book a classic. Originally published at $110, the quality of the presentation makes that price seem reasonable. Now available on-line at a considerable discount, any 912 enthusiast would be well advised to snap up a copy while they are still available. With many references to and even quotations from (even many illustrations of) internal Porsche memos and minutes of meetings, this book is almost as much about corporate management history and politics, as it is about the cars. The genesis of the 901/911 and the 6-cylinder engine, the political infighting involved, and the development of a more inexpensive alternative, are dealt with in almost tedious detail in the first few chapters. It is made clear in this discussion that the 912 was an after thought, and not a welcome one at that. This despite the fact that it is shown that a great deal of the development/testing of the 911 car was conducted using 4 cylinder engines. Though it presents a very complete story of the creation and development of the 912 and the 912 E, and the many complications and conflicts in its development and marketing, this is not a reference book – there are no charts and only one table (of serial numbers, which the text indicates is of questionable reliability) - not even an index is provided. Gems of wisdom are there, such as when and why the 911 dash was made 3 dial for the 912 and then changed to 5 dial.

| 28 |

These gems are hard to find unless one reads the entire text. 50 YEARS PORSCHE 912 is an interesting, arguably fascinating, story. But be advised that the first half of the book is devoted to the only 8 year period from 1957, the initial conception of a replacement for the 356, to commencement of 912 production in 1965. The 912: Year by Year chapter provides a very detailed description of the changes made as the model evolved. Other chapters in the latter half of the book detail the complexities and multiple 'false starts' for the 912 E program. There is a review of the USA-only 912 E by a German journalist, and a commentary on the restoration of a 912 prototype, by Rick Becker, 912/912 E Advocate for PCA. Of particular interest to this reviewer is the documentation of the thought processes leading to the 912 E which are totally devoid of any hint of the conventional explanation: 'to use up leftover 914 engines'. The final photo spreads of this well illustrated book show very Germanic backgrounds for four 912s with California license plates, and their drivers. Who are these lucky guys? 50 YEARS PORSCHE 912 is a hardcover book with 178, 9 x 10-1/2 inch heavyweight, glossy pages, with many color photos of 912s and their features.
