ur efforts to recruit volunteers has shown success. We have recruited a new Membership Meeting Coordinator, Jim Bultema and a new Sponsorship Chair, Mark Manente. We still need a volunteer to lead our Phoenix Flight event in November. Also, we are looking for a new Safety Chair Please consider stepping up for these positions. With nearly 1800 members in the region, we should be able to find someone! In addition, I am looking for a couple of gaming nerds with either Forza or Grand Turismo experience to help me set up a digital autocross event on computers this coming summer. Please contact me if you can help. Hopefully, we have gotten through the worst of our winter weather. We continue to have a great schedule of events. The Aman’s Wickenburg drive was a great success; however, the restaurant ran out of a few desserts! We were promised they would do better next year. We are in the middle of our autocross and DE season so please join us to learn the limits of your car in a safe and fun environment. There are more tours coming, including our second off-road tour for Cayennes and Macans (members with other 4WD cars are welcome, too). Our New Members’ meeting should be another great event this year. If you are unfamiliar with the kinds of events we run, or just want to learn more before you sign up, this is a great opportunity to learn about tours, autocross, and drivers education. Finally, with our new member meeting coordinator, we are planning to have speakers and items of interest at our monthly meetings to try to increase our attendance. We seem to see the same familiar faces at these events despite nearly 100 new members joining the region in the past year. We are also planning to send out a survey to the members to learn your preference and what we can do better. ‘Nuff said. Drive safely!

Attention AZPCA Members! Please let our sponsors know you are a member of the Arizona Porsche club and that you appreciate their support.

ell spring is almost here! Baseball spring training is in full swing (no pun intended) and the flowers are starting to bloom along the highways from the recent rain we had in the valley.

Some of our upcoming events have already sold out! Check our web calendar and sign up for our region events before it’s too late. You snooze you lose! If you haven’t noticed, Kevin has made some design changes and the website looks awesome. I’m sure he will be in the running again to win another PCA National Award. This month the award winner for the Writer’s Monthly Award for Going Places is Kevin Gilchrist for “Garage Floor Project.” He will receive a $30. credit on Motorsportreg, which is good for one year to use on any AZPCA activity. We have a lot of members in our region and still need help to fill the Phoenix Flight Chair position. Please consider volunteering! Hope to see you at an upcoming event. Update: The mystery photographer that took the January newletter cover photo is Barb Crowley from the Southern Arizona Region. Oh darn, I won’t be able to use this cover photo for the PCA Newsletter contest.

REGION ANNOUNCEMENTS

Off-Road Tour II Over Four Peaks Sunday, April 5, 2020

Join us in your Cayenne or Macan (or other 4-wheel drive vehicle) for a longer off road tour than our first off-road event, in 2020. The route will have about 2.5 - 3 hours of off-road driving which will include several stops for pictures and enjoying the view with friends and family. We will also have a catered barbeque lunch along the way. The cost is $7.50 per person. The tour’s plan is to enjoy a half day of off-road driving along a route that consists of varying terrain of mostly single car-width dirt and rock trails with some wider sand wash areas. The trails are very scenic and will mostly require very low speeds to manage due to the tight turns, uneven surfaces, steep grades, and slippery rocks or deep dirt/sand. This will be a beginner’s tour like our first but much longer to learn how to take your Cayenne or Macan (or other four-wheel-drive vehicle) off road safely and to show you what it is capable of. You can expect your vehicle to get dusty and possibly a little muddy depending on trail and weather conditions, but the intention of this drive is to experience your Porsche SUV off the pavement, without anything getting damaged. This event will give you the comfort through direct experience in your vehicle to manage its off-road technologic functions, and safely and more predictably drive off-pavement trails, which the Cayenne and Macan do with impressive ease. If all goes favorably, at the end of the trail drive, a healthy car wash should be all that is needed to return your Porsche SUV to its garage queen status and remove any evidence of its off-roading adventures, with only your pictures and memory of the experience remaining! The off-road portion will end at Roosevelt Lake and will return on the Beeline Highway to Fountain Hills. Street tires will be fine but it is best if they have good tread. I recommend lowering your tire pressure at the beginning of the tour for a better and more comfortable ride. If you have equipment concerns about your Cayenne or Macan, please contact event organizer Steve Sapareto to discuss.

Meet A Member

T

he AZPCA is made up of a wonderful group of members. As Going Places Editor, I would like to introduce featured member, Doug Edwards.

1. When did you join PCA?

I joined in December 2019.

2. What Porsche(s) do you have? I own a 2003, 911 GT2

3. Where are you from?

Born and raised in New York moved to Scottsdale in 1973 with my family.

4. Family?

Married for 27 years and have two daughters. I also have 5 siblings, who all live in the Phoenix area. Between the 6 of us our family has grown to 30 members. My wife and I just hosted Christmas and we were cooking for three days.

5. Work background or trade?

I am a partner with my brother and President of the Edwards Design Group. A high-end custom design/ builder. We recently completed the design/build of the historic “Castle Hot Springs Resort.”

6. What makes your car special?

The car has been kept in impeccable condition since it came off the assembly line. There were only 233 of them made worldwide in 2003 and only 90 were imported to the US. It satisfies my esthetic need for beauty, it’s very fast and super fun to drive. I pamper her and keep her safe in my garage for the most part. I really enjoy just looking at her as much as taking her out for an occasional spin.

7. Next upgrade?

Keeping it stock aside from wheels.

| 16 |

8. Have you personalized your car? The wheels and side mirrors only.

9. Favorite memory with a car?

Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway through North Carolina with my brother.

10. Why did you buy your Porsche?

I’ve always loved cars, my Mom says my first word was CAR, before Mom or Dad, LOL. I bought my first car with a motor manual when I was 15 and learned how to work on them through trial and error. In my teens and with bloody knuckles, I owned a 56’ VW and put a Porsche Super 90 engine in it and a 1962 MGA Mk II and put an MGB engine in it, I owned several VW vans, VW beach buggies (I lived on the beach,) etc. Currently, I own a 1972 BMW 2002Tii, which I bought 36 years ago. I recently restored it to its original condition. I always wanted a Porsche GT2 ever since they came out. It’s a rare and beautiful piece of machinery that shouldn’t go down in value, at least that’s how I justified it to my wife.

11. High school nickname? My nickname was Dougie.

12. Top 3 dream cars you would own? 1.BMW Z8 Alpina 2.Porsche Carrera GT 3.Porsche GT2 RS

Arizona Region Racer Three-Peats as West Coast Series Champion

C

has Wirken of the Arizona Region won a third consecutive PCA Club Racing West Coast Series GTD class championship in 2019 piloting his 2016 Cayman GT-4 Clubsport. Chas scored points in races at Auto Club Speedway, Buttonwillow, Laguna Seca and Sonoma. PCA Club Racing trophies were presented at the Zone 8 banquet in Long Beach on January 18th. Unfortunately, Chas did not repeat his 2018 national championship as his point total was only good enough for fifth place nationally in 2019. The 2020 West Coast Series season begins in March at Buttonwillow, followed a month later by the California Festival of Speed at Auto Club Speedway in nearby Fontana, California, before returning to Laguna Seca in May.

Meet A Member

T

he AZPCA is made up of a wonderful group of members. As Going Places Editor, I would like to introduce featured member, Nathan Goldberg.

1. When did you join PCA?

I joined PCA a couple of months ago.

2. What Porsche(s) do you have? I have a 1986 Porsche 928s

3. Where are you from?

I’m originally from Iowa but I’ve lived in Phoenix since 1984, so I consider myself an “almost native.” I spent 4 years in Tucson at The University of Arizona where I studied Economics and Marketing. I received my MBA in Business Administration from Arizona State in 2005.

4. Family?

I’ve got a great family. My entire immediate family live in Phoenix and Scottsdale so I’m very fortunate to have a lot of family in the area. I also have an amazing wife (Susan) and three boys who are 3 and my twins turn 2 in February 2020.

5. Work background or trade?

I work with my father, who started a printing, promotional products, branded apparel, office supply and office furniture business in 1984. I’ve been working with him full time since I graduated from college in 2000, though I used to come to work with him as a child and spent most summers and breaks from school working with him.

6. What makes your car special?

My grandmother actually bought the car brand new from Scottsdale Porsche in November of 1985. My grandmother drove it daily until my uncle bought it from her in 2000. About 6 months ago, he messaged some of my cousins and me and said he was thinking about selling the car. When I told my wife about the opportunity, she said to me, “You have to buy that car.” It’s really meant a lot to myself and my cousins growing up. I remember the first time I saw the car. Grandma showed me how the headlights flip up and I was in love. I had the poster that said, “justification for a higher education” in my room. The poster had a house on the cliff overlooking the ocean with a huge garage. One of the cars in the garage was a 928. I also loved that the car was in Weird Science and Risky Business.

8. Have you personalized your car?

Not really. As I mentioned, I like to keep it stock. There were some mechanical upgrades that my mechanic, who is a 928 expert, recommended, so I did all of those to try to preserve the car as much as possible.

9. Favorite memory with a car?

When I turned 16, grandma would fly us to South Bend, Indiana and pick us up in the Porsche. She would then hand us the keys and let us take a nice long drive in it, all the while, egging us on to go faster and faster. Grandma loved to speed and always managed to get out of her speeding tickets. Something I don’t have nearly as much success doing.

10. Why did you buy your Porsche?

I thought it was important to keep the car in the family. My 7 first cousins and I all have incredibly fond memories about the car. I’ve been a car lover since I was born. Growing up, my friends’ rooms had pictures of girls or sports teams, while I had pictures of cars...lots and lots of cars.

11. High school nickname? Goldy

12. Top 3 dream cars you would own?

This might be the toughest question to answer. Of course I would love a 959, and my current child situation (3 kids, 3 years and under) affects this decision, but I would like a 911 Targa (manual), probably a Dodge Durango SRT and maybe an Audi RS6 Avant or maybe a Ferrari Portofino. There are so many cool cars out there...I just need to grow the business a bit more so I can add to my collection.

7. Next upgrade?

I like to keep the car as stock as possible. I’m going to tint the windows and probably replace the tape deck since the tape deck that is in there now isn’t original anyways and it would be nice to have bluetooth in the car. G O I N G P L A C E S 83.2020

Garage Floor Project by Kevin Gilchrist

W

e have a very tired garage floor that is really almost unfit for our Cayman to roll up onto. The floor has spent 25 years with lots of tires, jacks, stands, dirt bikes and jet skis on carts, all pounding it. Even kids skidding bikes, rear wheels locked in a squealing curve, with skateboards and scooters treading across as well. Over time the concrete was actually pitting away under each of the car tires. And a few cracks have made their way across the floor. Which was poured when we bought the house new, but it was before pre-tension concrete techniques with tension wires in the cement to eliminate cracking. I had looked into epoxy finishes which seem popular and sold in DIY kits and from vendors. But with the patching required of our beat up garage floor I did not feel that we would really end up with a nice finish over the top of it. That is when I seemed to notice more and more at events we have attended, interlocking floor tiles under car displays, along team trucks in the pits at racetracks and so on. Lots of cool combinations of colors that seemed like you could design your own pretty easy and have a really nice looking floor.

Before!

Of the main players that sell the products, there are solid tiles and grid like tiles. In doing some reading and research, it seemed that the grid style has some advantages of cleaning and expansion in our Arizona heat. The grid tiles actually have channels underneath so you can blow or wash debris out the front of the garage. And you can pull out tiles in any location if you need to get under them. So we decided to look into going towards a solution from Swisstrax called Ribtrax, a grid like tile to spruce up our garage floor. The vendors website had a design tool to play with colors, so we laid the shape of our three car garage floor out and started playing. After quite a few tries my wife came up with a really cool design that really brought out a combo of colored stripes and checkerboard, using somewhat grey colors in between to not show as much dirt or markings as a white tile might. They really have so many colors available you can design from mild to wild without a difference in the price. We worked out our order with a very helpful rep over email, he put together the design and came up with exactly how many tiles of each color and edges we would need. All coming out to a quote of $3.96 a square foot. And due to a sale at the time there was free shipping and edges. Soon we had 11 big boxes show up at the door from a FedEx truck, stacked and ready for me to lay the tiles down.

Measuring and cutting the edges. | 22 |

Work in progress.


I spent a little time patching the garage floor’s holes and cracks with a cement vinyl patch that I picked up at a home improvement store. Just mixing with water and spreading, it dried really solid and firm enough to cover up the imperfections. After figuring out the pattern from printing our design and organizing the boxes by color, I was easily able to layout and snap the tiles together in about 4 hours, which I thought was really impressive for a three car garage. They have loops on two sides and pegs on the other two and you just line them up and snap them together on the floor. Assembly line style across the garage in rows. And they also provide transition edges to drive up on to the floor for each garage door opening, which also snaps with loops and pegs.

The end result produces a floor that just came out amazing and our garage does not even look like the same garage. Our Cayman is now proudly standing out in its own victory lane, with stripes and checkerboard patterns running underneath the length of it. It has really brought our garage back to life, much better then it ever was. I am now really proud to show it off to everyone, it looks fantastic, is quiet to walk on and really covered up all the imperfections, as before I wanted to keep the doors closed and hide everything because of the floor. I am super happy with the end result and ease of doing this project myself. As well as I am not advertising for Swisstrax, but if you want to contact them for information, the person I dealt with was Kyle Avise at kyle.avise@swisstrax.com.

Even with the effciency of laying the main interlocking tiles down, I did spend the whole next day cutting all the edges of the side and back walls of our garage. It may have gone quicker but I really took my time measuring twice and marking and cutting once, to avoid errors. I cut the tiles on a table saw with a 60 tooth fine blade and they really sliced like butter, but if you cut too slow the plastic would melt on the edges of the tiles and you would spend a lot of time cleaning up the cut edge. It was fairly easy, just more time consuming being careful.

Finished results!

Porsche Scenic Drive: Salt River, Saguaro Lake to Fountain Hills by James Bultema photos by Jan Mackulak and Rook Younger

O

ur Arizona Region of the Porsche Club of America is one of the more active clubs going. Just try and sign up for an event close to the actual ride date and you will almost certainly find it’s full. Why? Because they are so darn fun! On Saturday, February 1st, it was full again, as 70 Porsche enthusiasts driving in 33 cars, gathered at the Salt River Fields parking lot. Although, it was a bit chilly (for us Arizonians) it was at a reasonable meet time of 9:30 a.m. By the way, if you ever get lost finding the parking lot, give it a minute and you are guaranteed to see a pack of Porsches heading in the right direction. Many would agree that one of the highlights of these scenic rides is the meet-up. It’s always such an invigorating time as so many Porsches gather together all neatly lined up in rows to separate out the two groups. It gives everyone a chance to check out the other rides and visit with friends. As our always entertaining Rook Younger gathered everyone for the drivers meeting, he had several new members introduce themselves and just as important their car. Rook next introduced a special guest, Lori Schutz. Lori, as some of you will recall, was our guest speaker at the 60th anniversary social. She is the daughter of Peter Schutz, who was the CEO of Porsche AG in the 1980s. Peter was instrumental in turning around Porsche and is credited with saving the 911. She has so many heart-warming stories of her father and the larger family of Porsche owners. Rook handed out the detailed driving instructions that are so accurate, one turn that is listed as occurring in 223 feet. Now that is what I call precise! After the briefing, we did the modern version of “saddle-up,” fired up the engines and were off. As we made our way through the hills bordering the East Valley, passing by Usery Mountain Regional Park, one couldn’t help but appreciate what a spectacular part of the country we live in. With beautiful homes doting the countryside, and the spiraling branched Saguaro cactus’, it is enough to get you to slow down, if just for a minute. As the 33 cars wrapped around the hills, we were onto Bush Highway, where views of the majestic cliffs flanking the Salt River were gorgeous.

| 26 |

All lined up and ready to go!


Soon the group was pulling into the parking area of Saguaro Lake, Water Users Recreation Site for the often-welcomed pit stop. With just enough time to tell a few good stories, hit the head, group one was leading the way to our final destination at the well-known Arrivederci Cucina Italiana restaurant overlooking Fountain Lake. With umbrellas dotting the outside patio like mushrooms, the driving group met up with additional club members, who were waiting to have lunch with their friends on the drive. Once again, lunch was delicious, and the conversation just as yummy. For this author and his wife, we happened to sit with a father and son (19 years old) team who have traveled the world driving Porsches and enjoying the car culture wherever they went. They have just moved here from Northern California and what they said about Scottsdale was most interesting. According to both, they said there was nowhere in the world that could match our area for its car culture and sheer number of exquisite cars. You should have seen the smile on their faces telling this story—they love it here. We are lucky! See you on the next ride.

Wickenburg Sunday Drive by Ken Shahoian photos by Chuck Brasile

Sunday, February 9th marked the date for another Arizona Region day tour--a Sunday Drive to Rancho de los Caballeros in Wickenburg, hosted by Jack and Loretta Aman. We discussed how many years the tour has been happening, and figured it had to be over 25 years. With Jack and Loretta at the helm for all, but about the first. A true fixture of the region. Karen and I have been able to join in for several years now when visiting the valley for a week or so during the winter. Per custom, we gathered at the Coffee Plantation in Scottsdale, a full range of Porsches arriving in varied colors. Always a spectacular sight. We were visiting with what I suppose I’ll call the “Arizona Winter Trip Porsche” of the 911s from my fleet—a Ruf modified 996 Turbo in basic black. So nothing anyone would be checking out on the color chart over at PCA’s Rennbow site.

Such a beautiful day for a drive!

As we were timing the drive to arrive in Wickenburg for lunch, we had leisure time to drink plenty of coffee, eat breakfast, and socialize with fellow members. Several new members were in attendance, as well as what’s typical for winter in Arizona—seasonal visitors and vacationers joining in on the Porsche fun. I think every one of us from out of town was driving a Porsche. Jack began the meeting, going over the usual instructions. When Rook Younger queried the group at the driver’s meeting for a volunteer to pen a write-up for Going Places, I volunteered as I joked I could practically cut and paste mine from last year. Sellout crowd? Check. Full range of Porsches? Check. Great weather? Check. Delicious food when we got to Rancho de los Caballeros? Check. So around 50 Porsches were divided into two groups, Jack and Rook leading the way. And off we went. As there’s pretty much only one way to get to Wickenburg, we shot up to Scottsdale Road to Carefree Highway, then west for a few miles. North on 7th Street/New River Road eventually looped us back around to SR 74, then up US 60 to the resort. An easy 85 miles that took about two hours. Including leaving the parking lot, I counted eight intersection turns for the trip.

| 28 |

At the ranch.


We arrived at Rancho de los Caballeros around noon. Also a few local members who, living local, chose to bypass the drive and met us there. The resort staff was ready, the buffet line opened, and nearly 100 hungry members made many trips through. The highlight was the carving station, this year ham. Before you got to that, there was a full salad bar and a second station with everything from soups, vegetables, and potatoes. Even beef for fajitas. And then there was dessert, a full assortment of pies and fresh baked cookies and goodies, as well as an ice cream station with a DIY topping bar. Before we knew it, a couple of hours had passed, everyone was more than full, and off we departed toward home. Until next year! Lunchtime at Rancho de los Caballeros.

Great turnout as always for this Sunday drive!

I Don’t Know If It’s Cloudy or Bright by Danielle Badler

O

r is it gray, as in the gray market. I thought that whole market segment had been painted black, years ago. Oh sure, I remember the raft of 911s that were entering the country in the ‘80s. I prided myself with being able to identify these infidels by their rear bumpers. Remember? On the gray market cars, the area between the bumper spacers was much wider than on the U.S. market cars. So you could imagine my surprise when I got to talking with my friend Ilan Brown, who filled me in on the rays of sunshine that still radiate down on those rare individuals who want to virtually eliminate the chance of seeing themselves coming the other way, when they’re behind the wheel. I owe it all to the beauty of dog ownership. What? No, really. My usual canine route leads me a few blocks from my humble abode, past a line of store front/offices. And there’s one storefront sign that kept piquing my interest for months. It says “Cult Cars.” Finally, one fine summer day, Mr. Cult Cars, Ilan, was sitting in his doorway with his Rottweiler, Omen, and the both of us, my dog Lily and me, couldn’t help but stop and say hello. Turns out Ilan’s “day” business is residential real estate. He’s been at it for 12 years. But his passion, if you can call it that, is importing “cult” cars that are 25 years old or older. “I’ve been through the scammers, the tire kickers, the Craig’s List surfers. I don’t do it that way,” Ilan says. So what do you do? “My website and Cars and Coffee, mainly. I bring my cars, and schedule test drives. For $50, which will be applied to a sale.” Does this work? “I sold a BMW 850i last fall. An Eagle Talon recently. An X5M,” Ilan says. But I thought the gray market went the way of the Dodo Bird, as the manufacturers minimized or eliminated the difference in performance between U.S. and “rest of world” cars. “Not so,” Ilan states. Yes, during the ‘80s it was madness. The dollar was 50% higher than the Deutschmark. And the market took off. Some 1,500 gray market cars were imported into the U.S. in 1980. That figure ballooned to 60,000 cars in ’85. But that same figure translated into a huge dent for OEM importers and dealers. The Mercedes dealer network, it was reported, was losing some $300 million in sales per year. Mercedes, Ilan says, responded by spearheading passage of the “25-Year Rule.” The way it works is that any car that was made more recently than 25 years ago must meet U.S. safety standards and crash test requirements. OEM dealers supported the move wholeheartedly, in the interest of safety for consumers, they said. But a major motivation was to keep dealers solvent. You couldn’t say the same thing about gray-market dealers. Following passage of the rule, in 1990, the market shrank to some 300 cars, mostly Ferraris.

| 32 |

Then came the “Show and Display” rule, limiting usage to 2,500 miles/year or fewer. That one I remember. Especially for the 959 that Bill Gates allegedly imported … but couldn’t drive. But it’s the 25-Year Rule in which Ilan plays. And, so? Even with the virtual elimination of performance differences between the U.S. and the rest of the world, a lot of interesting cars never made it over. Some never left Europe. Until now. Ilan says he currently has two cars for sale. An Escort RS Cosworth and an Audi RS2. Do you remember the Cosworth? No? Neither did I. A quick search led me to the immortal words “homologation special version” of the Escort, meaning it’s a street version of the Euro rally car. And the Audi? The car that cemented the manufacturer’s reputation for building performance automobiles. This was the first-ever RS Avant (Audi-speak for wagon) and it was jointly developed by Audi and Porsche. “It’s got the Porsche crest on the center caps. 993 side mirrors. The Porsche logo on the intake manifold. A 2.2 liter 20V inline 5. Mine has a K24 turbo. Makes about 450 hp.” The stock version had 311 hp. Hmmm. How’d you find them? Ilan says the search is part of the fun. A trip to Europe that he can write off. Dealing with dealers who you know are wondering , just who this crazy American really is. Ilan found both cars about 20 miles from each other. In Belgium. He lined up a shipping broker to handle all the importation paperwork. But, before shipment, came an important step, inspection. “They were what they appeared to be,” Ilan says. Which, because of stringent rules for service and maintenance in most European countries, is common. “I wouldn’t buy a car sight unseen,” he notes. Although the report on the Audi came back in Dutch. Ilan had to find a translator. And why two cars? “Two fit in a typical container for shipping.” “I’m trying to establish the brand, and build credibility,” says Ilan. Customers go on his website, and see he’s the real thing. “I don’t have consignment cars right now, but that’s where I’d like to head,” he states. “No warehousing. Just finding and brokering interesting cars.” Does the business work in reverse? “Not as well,” says Ilan. “Our duty is two and a half percent. The other way, it’s a 20+ percent duty.” So, I had an idea. One day, on my canine route, I brought over back issues of the British car magazine Octane and the pub Sports Car Market. “Knock yourself out,” I said. “Between these two mags, you can find just about anything ever made that has wheels.” Ilan grabbed them. “Thank you!” he said. I chuckled. I knew what he was going to do for the next few hours.


BOOK REVIEWS FOR PORSCHEPHILES by Bruce Herrington, Orange Coast Region

101 Projects for Your Porsche 911

T

his is a reprint of the first book in Wayne Dempsey’s outstanding series of ‘101 Projects’ books, and when it was written it did cover all 911s. Now it needs the amended title. Pages 5-239 are exact copies of the 2001 edition, though on this reviewer’s copies the ‘new’ book has more vivid colors. The companion book, 101 Projects for Your Porsche 911 1998-2008, makes clear what vehicles it covers.

There is also a graphic indicator of the degree of difficulty for each project covered. Projects range in complexity from “Jacking Up Your Car” and “Changing Engine Oil”, to “Setting Timing, Dwell and Idle Speed” and “Broken Stud Removal”. Between those two extremes are 96 other projects covering a wide gamut. Aftermarket ‘tweaks’ are not ignored: Project 39 is “Installing a Short Shift Kit; Project 84 is “Installation of a Chin Spoiler”, etc.

For the enthusiast working on his own cars, Dempsey’s books can serve as, and to some degree improve upon, the factory workshop manuals. Though precise and accurate, they are written for the home hobbiest not the professional mechanic. As such they deal with the ‘how’ to do things, not just the ‘what’ to do. Like all in the series, this book is very well illustrated, and somewhat unique in the use of different colored arrows to differentiate between aspects of the work being illustrated. It is very well indexed, the author being very much aware of the problem with books that index Brake Rotors under D for ‘Disk, Brake’, so all of Dempsey’s books index topics by all their common names/nicknames.

The purchase of this book is not an expense, it is an investment; an investment with a very high rate of return. You can almost get your money back in the first oil change or air conditioner recharge you do yourself. It is the goal of the book to get more people out working on their 911s. As the author says: “it’s too much fun not to”!

101 Projects for Your Porsche 911 uses a distinct how-to format. Step-by-step instructions and high resolution color pictures, tell you how to perform the job and what costly or time consuming mistakes to avoid. Arranged in 11 color coded sections, each focusing on a particular system (Engine, Fuel, Brakes, Electrical, etc.), the book is not meant to be read from cover to cover, but to provide guidance on whatever project suits the need or mood of the owner at any given time. It is feasible to just flip through the book and undertake whatever project seems interesting.

This book is written to be an inspiration to the do-it-yourselfer, as well as a guidebook, and is a ‘must-have’ for owners of air cooled 911s. Even if you don’t intend to do your own work, you may find that it inspires you do a project after all, boosting both your ego and your pride in ownership. If you resist the inspiration to do-ityourself, it is still worthwhile read up on the work to be done to better understand the estimate presented by a ‘professional’ shop. 101 Projects for Your Porsche 911 is softbound and contains 240 8-1/4x10-1/2 inch glossy pages, and is available for $29.59 (an absolute bargain compared to any other ‘shop manual’), from your favorite bookseller (ask for it), or from http://QuartoKnows.com where the applicable years are indicated in the listing. 101 Projects for Your Porsche 911 [Air Cooled] by Wayne Dempsey, published 2019 by Motorbooks. Minneapolis, MN

Each project description starts with a table summarizing the nature of the project – “Time required, Tools, Applicable Years, Parts, etc. G O I N G P L A C E S 83.2020
