THE PRESIDENT’S COLUMN ROD HERSBERGER Reading Matt Stone's review of his visit to the Porsche Museum last month brought back memories

of our visit to Zuffenhausen in 2018. This was Porsche’s 70th anniversary year, as well as my own. We started the day with an easy, straightforward train ride from the Stuttgart Bahnhoff to a stop right at the Porsche Center. Before visiting the Museum, we took our pre-arranged tour of the factory. After the cars are painted and so forth, they go to the assembly line where everything is installed and fitted. Every part is pre-mated to an exact car and delivered to the line by robots: no rummaging around a parts bin for the odd bit! After the assembly line, we saw where the engines are assembled and where the interiors are made. All the beautiful leathers made me want to spec some new furniture. I asked our tour leader if the average employee could afford a Porsche and he said "yes." I don’t need to rehash Matt’s coverage of the Museum. As fellow Porsche owners, I hope you have a chance to visit. Not surprisingly, there is another museum in Stuttgart that glorifies The Silver Star. Much like the Guggenheim in

New York, the Mercedes Museum is circular, starting at the top. Beginning with a replica of Karl Benz’s first car, you follow the development of not only the brand but broader German engineering and design through the years. On a visit to Italy the following year, we made the pilgrimage to Modena. There are two museums here. The one in Maranello near the factory has more of a focus on Ferrari race cars. The Museo Enzo is at the site of the original Scuderia and features road cars. One last stop for cars on this trip took us to the Alfa Romeo Museum outside Milan. This one is not easy to get to, but worth the effort. It is very modern, almost futuristic, in its approach to presenting the Alfa history. As you likely know, Signore Ferrari ran the Alfa racing program for many years prior to launching his own brand. As another year winds down, I thank you for supporting the club and its leadership. In addition to this beautiful magazine, we try to bring you a variety of events that offer plenty of opportunity for participation.

Board of Directors Meetings SBR’s Board of Directors meets on the second Wednesday of every odd-numbered month beginning at 6:30 p.m. At this time, the meetings are held online via Zoom. Member attendance and participation are encouraged. Contact SBR president Rod Hersberger (rodhersberger@gmail.com) to receive the Zoom link for each meeting. Board meeting minutes are posted on the SBR website: www.pcasb.org/#club_news.

Note Regarding Elections As all Board members are finishing up their first year of two-year terms, there will be no election needed this year. The next nomination process will start mid 2023.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK DENNIS POWER I’d like to call your attention to the various ways

members, as well as the public, can get a glimpse of what the Santa Barbara Region does, the activities we have, the people who take part, and the cars. You really should visit these web sites, especially if there is an event you didn’t attend, but wished you did. And, these portals are wonderful ways to introduce a potential member to what SBR is all about, all from the convenience of a computer screen. Perhaps the most important source is our website, accessible via www.pcasb.org. This is managed by Randy Fishwick. You’ll find almost everything here, including links to our online presence elsewhere and an electronic copy of current and past editions of this magazine. It’s truly amazing. There is a list of club events with links for flyers and related information, access to the Goodie Store, articles, notes on organizations receiving charitable contributions, links to sponsors, board minutes, and bylaws. There is the latest President’s Column, a calendar of upcoming events, and membership information, such as how to join and the cost, how to get a name tag, and how to contact board members. It’s easy to navigate and Randy keeps everything up to date.

For visual treats, turn directly to Flickr (www.flickr. com/photos/pcasbr), Instagram (www.instagram.com/ pcasantabarbara), and Facebook (www.facebook.com/ pcasbr). These sites are beautifully managed by Sal Reyes. We have some excellent photographers in our club and they are active at our cars & coffees, tours and drives, and social events. The club has been extremely active this fall and will continue to be through the end of the year. In September, we held a detail clinic and three-day drive in the High Sierras, three events in October, and one coming each in November and December, along with cars & coffees each month. The Concours de’Elegance, especially, resulted in an abundance of visual images. Our web page and social media sites are where to go to enjoy these visual treats. I encourage you to check them out often. And don’t forget to give a pat on the back to Randy, Sal, and our photographers for the great work they do. One final note is to call your attention to the ballot on page 35. Each year, members vote to select their choices for Man and Woman of the Year. We'll announce the winners at the Annual Holiday Brunch on December 11.

The Mullin Automotive experience By Mike Sagraves

Peter W. Mullin has had a lifelong romance with automobiles. His automotive museum evokes the pre-war salons of the Grand Palais in Paris, showcasing the finest and most renowned vehicles from the most esteemed French designers, engineers, and coachbuilders.

S

aturday August 20, 43 club members attended our Mullin Automotive Museum event. We started the day at the Aloha Steakhouse in Ventura where we enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast, a great cup of freshly brewed coffee, and visiting with other club members. A special guest joining us was PCA Zone 8 Representative Lori DeCristo who spoke to the group and shared some information about our zone's geography and upcoming zone events. After that, it was time to eat! Following breakfast, members loaded into their Porsches and headed to the Mullin Automotive Museum, only about a 20-minute drive from the restaurant. Our reserved session at the Mullin was from 10:00 a.m. till noon. It was very evident everyone was excitedly awaiting their opportunity to enter this gem of an automotive collection right in our backyard: Oxnard, California. The Mullin Automotive Museum exclusively features French-made vehicles from the 1920s, 1930s, up to the 1960s. Featured brands are Bugatti, Delahaye, Citroen, Talbot-Lago, Renault, and Peugeot, among others. Many of our members started their tour in the Mullin Theater by watching a movie that told the history of both the automobiles and their creators. Clearly, Bugatti is the star of the show.

Many of the vehicles on display look as if they have just rolled off the assembly line, or in these cases the shops where they were handmade. The later restorations are nothing short of amazing. What is also amazing is you can get very close to these rare cars for an inspection; no barriers kept you at a distance. Motorsports fans could also view several Le Mans winning French race cars. If all the incredible cars weren't enough, there were many artifacts, works of art, and furnishings, dating back to the beginning of when these cars were manufactured. Even if you weren't a “car person” there was plenty to take in during our visit. In closing, I think everyone enjoyed the day and left the Mullin Museum with a greater knowledge and appreciation for these amazing French vehicles. I did overhear several members saying "I'd love to drive that one!" or "I'll take that one home with me!”. Better have a truckload of money!! Mike Sagraves joined PCA in 2019. He drives a 2017 911 Carrera in Guards Red.

PRE-CONCOURS DETAIL CLINIC

A

By Tara Konrath

n overcast day greeted the participants for the detail clinic held last September 10. We were all watching for a chance of rain. Nineteen participants in 11 Porsches, including several first-time participants and some members from Los Angeles Region, gathered at the beautiful grounds of Lavaggio in Agoura Hills to learn about all things concours. We welcomed everyone back after a three-year hiatus and thanked Lavaggio for hosting us today and for 10 previous clinics. Dustin Troyan, Marketing Director, gave a brief overview of the outstanding services offered by Lavaggio. Amir Hami volunteered to have his 2010 911 997 Cabriolet used by Gabe Gutierrez for the demonstration on preserving paint. A rain shower moved the demonstration inside while Dustin explained the difference of the newer paints and different wax techniques, showcasing again how Lavaggio provides its special touch to the “Art of Auto Detailing,” as they like to say. As our appetite for detailing and prepping cars grew, we headed upstairs and discovered that a wonderful lunch was waiting for us, all provided by Lavaggio’s bistro. The afternoon session kicked off with a great interactive conversation about what to expect from a concours, including the new divisions and areas that can be judged on a car. I shared different tips and tricks that have been successful: the different brushes, Q-tips, and towels that you can never have enough of when prepping, including the various uses for chopsticks and the proper way to care for your microfiber towels. Our appreciation goes out to all the participants and the wonderful staff at Lavaggio for making this an educational and pleasurable occasion. We left looking forward to seeing all at the 44th Concours d’Elegance at Santa Barbara City College, which you can read all about in the following article. Tara Konrath is cochair of concours for SBR, is a qualified concours judge, and has been involved with these events for many years. She joined PCA in 2012 and drives a 1987 928 S4 in Arctic Silver.

updated on the schedule and thanking our sponsor, vendors, volunteers, and supporters, without whom we would not be able to put on the concours. Our event sponsor, Porsche Santa Barbara, brought out an eye-catching 2022 Porsche 911 Targa 4S Coupe and a like-new 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S Sedan for us all to admire. It was great to have Rene and Nicole Verbrugge and the crew from the dealership at the show.


We also had youth judging with PCA Juniors! Five young adults participated in judging three selected cars: a 1956 Porsche Speedster, a 1987 Porsche 928 S4, and a 2016 Porsche 911 GTS. PCA generously donated hats, T-shirts, lanyards, and awards for PCA Junior judging. The youths enjoyed learning more about concours judging and even presented first, second, and third place ribbons to the cars they helped evaluate. Tara Konrath’s 928 was the winner! This year, we had a number of vendors participating, including The Community Hot Rod Project, Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara, Wheel Concepts, Robert Watt–Village Properties, and Robert Watt Photography. Desmond Warren of DSR Audio graciously provided the sound system and music, and thanks go to John and Virginia Barrison for bringing out logo wear from the Goodie Store.

In addition to browsing vendor displays, attendees had time to bid on items in a silent auction to raise money for local charities. Special thanks go to Porsche of Santa Barbara, Griot’s Garage, Lafond Winery, Santa Barbara Winery, Whole Foods, and Robert Watt Photography for their generous donations to the auction. Lighthouse Coffee contributed the morning java. We raised $770 for local charities. Thanks are due to all those who bid on items and made the silent auction fun and competitive. And, owing to our region’s ongoing fundraising efforts, we were able to present a check that day to The Unity Shoppe of Santa Barbara in the amount of $2,500. It was an outstanding day of competition and camaraderie. We heard from many that it was so great to see each other again in the company of such fine looking cars. We’ll see you next year for the 45th Concours d’Elegance! Robert Watt has been a member of PCA since 2009. He drives an award-winning, 2008 Cayman in Speed Yellow. 18

HIGH SIERRA GRAND TOUR Story by Doreen Pankow Photos by Bill Hallier

A

group of 15 excited members started a driving adventure from Golden Valley Road in Santa Clarita, looking forward to three days of driving our Porsches through the High Sierras. Many of us had not traversed the roads outside of Lee Vining and Bridgeport before; we were looking forward to seeing some beautiful scenery and driving some challenging roads. We headed north on CA-14 and after two hours connected with Hwy 395 N, stopping for lunch at Aaron Schat’s Roadhouse in Bishop. We were now in the High Sierras and the cloud formations in the sky were spectacular as we continued our drive northbound. The clouds were massive; all shapes and sizes, and some sat right on top of the various mountain ranges. At about 300 miles, many of us stopped for fuel as we turned onto CA-120 toward Tioga Pass. We

20

DER AUSPUFF November/December 2022

drove about nine miles to Lake Ellery, which is before the entrance to Yosemite Park. It had started raining lightly so we only stopped long enough to view the lake at several spots before turning around and heading back to the 395 to complete our journey to the Walker River Lodge in Bridgeport. That evening we enjoyed dinner together at the Bridgeport Inn. On Tuesday morning, Jeff Parker led the group as we continued north on the 395. The fun began as we turned west onto Hwy 89 towards Markleeville and Monitor Pass which crests at an elevation of 8,314 ft. With its breathtaking scenery and light traffic, this route offers some of the best motorcycle riding and sports car driving in the Sierra Nevada range. We continued on our drive to Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway, which reaches an elevation of 8,730 ft.


John Ebbetts, a fur trader turned guide for California Gold Rush Forty-niners, claimed to have led a string of pack mules easterly over the Sierras in the vicinity of the pass back in April 1851. Today, Ebbetts Pass is one of the least traveled passes in the Sierra Nevada. There is a 23-mile stretch between Lake Alpine and Centerville Flat that is narrower than two lanes and lacks a dividing line. It has very steep sections and many hairpin corners. The eastern slope is particularly difficult, as many of the hairpin corners are blind, and steepen suddenly at the apex, making it necessary to shift to first gear in most vehicles. We arrived in the town of Murphys in time for lunch at The Watering Hole and a much-needed stretching of our legs, not to mention our arms and hands that had been gripping either the steering wheel or the armrest. After lunch, the group drove to Jamestown and enjoyed an interesting tour of the museum at Railtown 1897 State Historic Park near Jamestown. History comes to life here with vintage steam trains, a working roundhouse, and the timeless Sierra Railway Shops.

DER AUSPUFF 21


From Angels Camp we continued west through the town of Sonora towards Sonora Pass for a challenging 82mile drive with lots of 10-mph hairpin curves over a descent of 3,000 ft. from the crest. Sonora Pass is the second-highest pass in California at 9,264 ft., just 321 feet lower than Tioga Pass. It’s considered a scenic, mountain recreation thoroughfare, but the highway over the pass is extremely steep, exceeding 8% for most of the traverse, and up to 26% grades in some locations. Finally, with Leavitt Meadows to our right we knew we were through the challenging parts. We arrived back at the Lodge late in the afternoon. There was a lot of entertaining conversation over dinner discussing the day’s excursions. Wednesday morning, participants left the Lodge at various times in smaller groups as some members were continuing northbound to Lake Tahoe to enjoy a couple of extra days while the rest headed back home via various routes. We all want to thank Lionel Neff for organizing this fabulous driving tour of the Sierras, with incredible scenic views of beautiful forests, lakes, and meadows. It always refreshes our souls to spend time in the great outdoors. Footnote: There were several car problems encountered on this trip, including my 993, but we are truly blessed with members who are caring and supportive of each other when any of us encounter problems. I would like to thank Jeff Parker, Bob Clarke, and Dennis Power for all their helpful mechanical advice and moral support and, in my case, for making sure that I got home safely. It’s truly a pleasure to be part of our wonderful Porsche club! Doreen Pankow has been a member of PCA since 1997.

PORSCHES & PLANES By Ron Mulick

DER AUSPUFF November/December 2022


T

he event started with an excellent, buffet breakfast at Aloha Steakhouse in Ventura. However 86 attendees with their 53 Porsches were chomping at the bit to get on the road to the Santa Paula Airport. Were we going to fly somewhere? Nope. The first Sunday of every month, the Santa Paula Airport opens its gates to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. so visitors can view their museum and the many hangers sporting antique aircraft, rare cars, antiques collections, and other items. Santa Barbara Region selected October 2 to visit, to view the treasurers on display and to show off our own treasures to the visiting public. Once we arrived at the airport, we parked our cars on the taxiways and lined up next to one another, with hangars on each side of the rows. The public now had more than just aircraft and collectables to look at this Sunday, browsing around the Porsches ranging from early 911s to a 918 Spyder, not to mention Boxsters and Macans. Meanwhile, attendees were given a map of the airport with a written description of who’s who at the airport, plus a history of past hanger owners such as Charles Lindbergh, Cliff Robertson, Steve McQueen, Leonard Nimoy, and Gene Hackman. There was also a docent with a golf cart to take around people who preferred to ride instead of walk.

In one of the large hangars, the Santa Paula Aviation Museum has set up displays on the airfield’s history, along with aviation artifacts. Hanger 102 is owned by a past airship (blimp) pilot who has flown just about every type of airship and has many stories about his adventures, some in inclement weather. Across the taxiway is a model aircraft museum, full of scale models of just about every aircraft ever made. Hanger 101 is centered around outreach to the community. Volunteers offer free airplane rides to youth 8 to 18 years old in an effort to promote future pilots. They also have a section titled “International Organization of Women Pilots” that promotes aviation aspirations for women. The list goes on and on; each hanger has a story. But there was more. We had two vintage aircraft owners roll their planes out so that we could park our cars next to their aircraft and take pictures. One was a bright red Stearman biplane with a radial engine, owned by the airport manager. The second aircraft was a Dickenson Howard DGA 21, built and owned by Bruce Dickenson. This is a one-of-a-kind, radial engine aircraft that Bruce built based on Howard plans and parts. Bruce’s grandfather was instru-

mental in founding and building the airport back in 1930. He and another local farmer raised $19,000 to grade out the runway and build the first hangers. The airport is also home to CP Aviation, one of the most highly regarded pilot schools in southern California. The “Young Eagles” (a group of aspiring aviators and their parents) helped us park our cars and escorted us through the busy tarmac to the planes for pictures. Meanwhile, Steve Bucknum, whose godfather is Steve McQueen, had photo albums of his dad and Steve McQueen from back in the day. McQueen owned a hangar at the airport and Steve Bucknam’s dad was McQueen’s racing partner and best friend. Thanks to the Young Eagles and the Santa Paula Airport, we all had a unique and very informative morning. And, among the praise that followed, one participant wrote, “What a great group of people we have in our club. Our standards are pretty high, and Ron made us proud.” Ron Mulick has been a member of PCA since 2020. He drives a 1997 Cabriolet in Black.


Participants in the Santa Paula Airport drive contributed $10 each as a gift to the Aviation Museum of Santa Paula. SBR President Rod Hersberger presented the donation check to Kevin Nida, representing the Museum. They were joined by a group of Young Eagles who are part of the airport's program to teach young people to fly. Photo by museum board member David Vanoni.

Story and photos by Dennis Power

C

onveniently timed for a Friday at the height of Monterey Car Week, PCA’s Werks Reunion was a winner this year. Not only could one mingle with passionate Porsche people from all over the country, but Porsche Cars North America itself took the event seriously along with dealers from throughout the region. That, and the fact that there were a number of other events during the week, such as high-end auctions and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, down to less formal gatherings of aficionados, made it a great experience. We went to Legends of the Autobahn on Thursday, August 18, which held a concours for Mercedes, Audi, and BMW. You didn’t even have to go to all these events: just grab a glass of wine at a corner café in downtown Monterey and watch the cars go by.

28

DER AUSPUFF November/December 2022

As for Werks Reunion, it was reported that 747 judged and corral-parked cars were registered for the event held on Friday, August 19. The Porsches began arriving at the Monterey Pines Golf Course early. The day started with overcast skies, but by noon that gave way to sunshine. The featured model this year was the 996. Owning a 2003 996.2 Carrera 4S, I was rewarded by being able to park at the front of the group, which itself was at the front of the corral-parking area. Several thousand spectators came and went during the day. All told, about 8,000 car enthusiasts walked the fairways while taking in the corrals, the judged cars, and the special displays, including a popular group of 22 restored Porsches made up of competitors in the Porsche Classic Factory Restoration Challenge.


The first car we noted was a familiar, Signal Orange, 1974 911 T and himself, SBR’s recent Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, Joe Schneider. The day was starting well. One of my early goals, besides grabbing a cup of coffee and morning bun at a vendor’s truck, was the center stage area where some special cars were on display. What I wanted to see close up was the new 996 Classic Club Coupe. With its Sport Classic Gray paint, ducktail decklid, double-bubble roof, and handsome set of Fuchs wheels it did not disappoint. And the Club Blau graphic accents and pepita woven leather trim on the seats and door panels are pretty snazzy, too. Building a one-off model like this with a 996 has never been done before and it had the full might of Porsche Classic and Porsche Exclusive Manuaktur behind it. While my 996 doesn't have the performance or look as cool as this, it feels good to know we are in great company. A bit of a novelty was the Hoonipigasus Porsche. (def. Honnigan: A person who operates a motor vehicle in an aggressive and unorthodox manner, consisting of, but not limited to, drifting, burnouts, doughnuts as well as acts of automotive aeronautics.) This is Ken Block's insane 1,400HP AWD race car built for Pikes Peak in 2022. Unfortunately, this year the car dropped a valve, causing major engine failure, and it missed the qualifying run.

Leslie and I spent the entire day wandering the corrals and the judging area, chatting with those whose cars caught our eyes and taking more photos than could ever be used here. In the judged cars we noticed a familiar 2008 Cayman in Speed Yellow with a red, second-place ribbon on it. The shiny beauty belongs to our region’s own Lisa and Robert Watt. They were here to enter the car in the Werks competition and attend the Rolex Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca. Adding to SBR’s take during the afternoon awards ceremony, Joe Schneider won a set of Michelin Tires for being the longest-standing member of PCA in attendance. The next Werks Reunion Monterey will be August 18, 2023. Book your room early! Dennis Power has been a member of PCA since 2004. He is editor of Der Auspuff and drives a 2003 Carrera 4S in Arctic Silver Metallic.
