Letter from the President Letter from the Editor

HAPPY SPRING! IT’S OFFICIALLY on the calendar! Please save the date of Sunday, September 15, 2019 for the 58th Annual Concours d’Elegance at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica! We are delighted to be taking the event back to the Museum and look forward to seeing you all there!

NOT SCAMP WALKERS We would be delighted to welcome additional volunteers for a variety of roles from Tour Masters to social planners, to help with our digital platforms. Get more involved with the Club! Email us at volunteers@la.pca.org for more information.

SPRING IN LA. Time to stop getting by on getting by and the perfect time to get out and drive. As I write this, I am about to head out to Ollo for the April Member’s breakfast. After breakfast there is a drive to raise money for a great charitable cause, “Drive Toward A Cure.” I hope many of you had the chance to attend.

Speaking of new activities, on March 7 we hosted the Club’s first all-women’s track day at Buttonwillow raceway and boy, did we have fun! In true PCA spirit, multiple regions came together to help put and it was a great event! The participants were all smiles, the instructors had a great time and it was certainly a great kick off to what we hope will be more track events! Read more about it in this issue.

As has become tradition, on February 2 the Board of Directors and Appointments got together at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica to hold the third annual Board Summit. It was a perfect setting for us to get together and reflect on the Club’s past year, set the stage for 2019 and plan out the activities and endeavors in which we will engage throughout year – it’s going to be a busy one!

LA to be part of the event, and she contributed a nice article summarizing it. Thanks Mariana. I want to thank Stanislav Kaplan, PCA LA member, for an amazing collection of photographs from the Accelerating Change event and the Paradise Cove breakfast event. The cover shot is just one of many of the spectacular pictures he is capable of taking. His shots are seen throughout the issue.

One of my favorite songs is Jerry Jeff Walker’s Getting By, partially because the lyrics depict a character with no passion.

“OK buckaroos, Scamp Walker time again. I’m trying to slide one by you once more. Don’t matter how you do it. Just do it like you know it. I’ve been down that road once or twice before. Just gettin’ by on gettin’ bys my stock in trade. Living it day to day…”

Safe travels and we look forward to seeing you at our events!

Thankfully, PCA is not filled with a bunch of Scamp Walkers. It may have a bunch of buckaroos, but they are passionate buckaroos. This issue of Porscherama features a couple of them.

MARIANA SMALL PRESIDENT, PCA LA

Next, there is Alex Liorente, a PCA First Settlers Region member, who sent in a wonderful story about his experience at the Porsche Museum when it was celebrating its 10th anniversary. I thank him for reaching out to us. This issue has an inspiring article about Accelerating Change, a women’s only track day, which by all measures was a fabulous success.

A 356 KINDER GUY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, and especially Los Angeles, has been a mecca for unique folks since the studios moved in back in the early 1900s. It has also been a mecca for Porsches since the 1950s. PCA Los Angeles member, David Kinder, fits both categories. He grew up in post-war Los Angeles, was involved with the early days of body building in Venice Beach and Gold’s Gym, and rode bicycles to work before Breaking Away made bike racing popular in America. He has owned a couple of Porsches, both 356s. I am lucky, as I see David monthly at an informal Porsche breakfast and I get to call him a friend, though sometimes I refer to him in a complimentary way as a freak of nature.

Story by Harry Kraushaar Photographs by David Kinder 6

PORSCHERAMA /SPRING ‘19

David Kinder is 82 years old. Yet he looks and acts much younger. He has a physique that many fifty-year old men would envy. He is sharp and fun to communicate with. He loves cars and motorcycles. He can regale you with stories of racing on Mulholland Highway in the 60s on his Triumph, hanging out at the Rock Store when it still sold gas, riding once in a pack with Steve McQueen, and, most importantly, about his experiences in his 1956 356 Coupe. David bought the car in Anaheim at a Dunkel’s swap meet the day after the Toy

and Lit show in 2003. He had decided to rekindle his romance with an early Porsche, nearly thirty years after he sold his first one, a 1958 356 Coupe. David had been searching for a 356 for some time, reviewing listings in Hemmings and other publications, visiting the Long Beach Veteran Stadium car swap meet, and the Pomona swap meet that was dedicated to Corvettes, Volkswagens and Porsches. As the weeks passed, he began noticing that fewer and fewer 356s were being offered for sale. He was determined to buy another 356. Prior to going to the Dunkel’s event, he went to the bank and withdrew $10,000 in cash, the most they would give him in one tranche. As he and his wife, Sandy, walked around the meet, he spotted the car he was about to buy. It was an aquamarine coupe with red interior and no bumpers. It had 60,000 miles on the odometer and a for sale sign in the front window. The owner wanted $10,900. David waved his wad of cash at the owner and said, “I only have $10,000.” The owner agreed to the deal, signed over the title, and handed it and the Kardex, showing that the engine and transmission were original, to David. That was the extent of David’s due diligence. He started the car and drove it home, while Sandy followed in their other car. While he doesn’t advise others to buy the car in such a capricious manner, after owning the 356 for 16 years, he says, “That was one great buy!” It sure was. In the time he has owned it, has only had to have the valves adjusted,

nightclub with two women. The way he describes them, “They were each five-nine and about 160 well proportioned pounds.” For some reason, David thought all three could fit into the 356, as they took that car on road trips.

have the oil changed and have the master cylinder and wheel cylinders, tires and brakes replaced. He has also made come cosmetic changes to the car, having it repainted black and re-upholstering it in black. True to his Southern California roots, David initially took the car to Earl Scheib Paint and Body to get an estimate for painting the 356. While he was there, he thought to himself, “I just cannot do this to this car.” Instead, he took it to a custom paint shop where the car was stripped to the bare metal before being lovingly repainted, a process that took over a year. When it came to replace the upholstery, he opted to go to an upholstery guru in San Diego, not wanting to repeat the experience he had when he re-upholstered his first 356. Every now and then he wonders, “Did I commit a sin by altering the color and upholstery from the Kardex?”

David bought his first 356 in 1963. It was parked on a side street near Fountain and La Cienega and had a for sale sign attached to the inside of the window. David recalls seeing the car for the first time, “It was not dead sharp. The paint was faded, and the inside had upholstery that looked like a flood went through it.” Neither of those issues deterred David, and he bought the car, using his father to co-sign for the loan. By 1965, David was living what could have been best described as the precursor for the show, Three’s Company, as he shared a house just south of the Whiskey A Go-Go

The road trip in the 356 that David likes to talk about is the time that they went to Tijuana to hang out and have the car re-upholstered. As David tells it, “One of the girls, either Diane or Helen, was in the front seat and the other was crammed into the jump seat in the back.” Despite the inconvenience, they arrived in Tijuana, located an upholstery shop, left the car overnight based on the promise that it would be re-upholstered by the morning. Even though this was the mid-60s, David had grown up with cars, especially hotrods, in the 50s. He says that when asked what kind of interior he wanted he said, “Tuck and Roll!” And as he puts it, “Of course, I had no idea if that was appropriate for a 356 interior!” David and the women left the car and walked to a dingy hotel. David says, “The three of us slept on a small double bed. The room was dimly lit, with a small, single light bulb hanging from a long cord from the ceiling. I felt I was living in one of the scenes from Orson Welles’ film, Touch of Evil.” As it turned out, the choice of the upholstery shop may have been less appropriate than the Tuck and Roll for which David opted. David laughs when he says, “We were cold on the ride back, and we turned on the heater. Pretty soon we noticed

that no heat was coming out of the side vents. The upholstery shop had unknowingly covered them with material. I had to use a screwdriver to cut the fabric off in order to get the heat into the car!” Apparently, David had the only 356 with a Cut and Roll interior. David drove that car for a couple of years, before he bought a new, 1967 Mustang GT Fastback with a 390 engine, 4 speed transmission, and mag wheels. It was the car he drove to San Francisco in 1967 with a girlfriend to check out Haight Asbury during the Summer of Love. As he had two cars, he lent the 356 to another girlfriend who lived in Bel Aire and had a Ferrari GTB. The woman drove it for a while and when she returned it, she said, “I liked driving the 356 better than driving my Ferrari.” A bit later, he loaned the 356 to another friend. This time, the car came back with a blown engine. David sold it for $500. David has really fond memories of that car, which is why he purchased his current 356. He drives his current 356 to many PCA and other events. He still enjoys driving the twisties. His car is gorgeous and always superbly maintained. A few of us get a chuckle when he gets out of his car at club events. He maneuvers himself from the drives seat to the passenger seat before getting out. A steering wheel lock which conflicts with the driver’s door, came with the car and he still faithfully uses it, causing him to get out the passenger door. All, in all pretty impressive for an 82 year old.

and pressed the purchase button. Shockingly, it was only 44K points TOTAL and $90 in taxes. I was going to the museum… But first, I needed a place to stay...I checked Marriott and "Le Meridien" displayed with a room for $80 per night, including parking and breakfast. OH MY! I booked three nights. Lastly, I needed a car. I logged into Hertz, noting that a brand new Ford Fiesta ST with navigation, which included 1,000 KM per day, was available for $8 per day. I booked it in a heartbeat.

ADVENTURE AT THE MUSEUM

I was feeling so lucky that I thought about buying a lottery ticket.

Story by Alex Liorente (with an assist by Harry Kraushaar)

S OM E T I M E S you just have to show up. I have been a Porsche owner for almost 50 years and a PCA member for about 48 of those years. I have attended many Porsche events, including the 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans, where I was at Winners’ Stand, and, more recently, Rennsport, cojudging the Historics class in the Concours. I am proud of what I have done and thrilled about the events I have attended. Nothing, though, has ever come close to the experience I had attending the 10th anniversary of the Porsche Museum.

8

PORSCHERAMA /SPRING ‘19

Sometimes fate plays a big part. Other times you just have to be lucky. The stars aligned perfectly for this adventure, making it a flawless trip. I was a very lucky man. On the last Tuesday in January, while having breakfast, I received an Instagram from the “new” Porsche Museum announcing its 10th anniversary celebration. My first reaction was disbelief that it was 10 years old, and I had never been there. That my only reaction at the time. I thought about it later in the day, reflecting that it might be

nice to visit the museum, but I did not dwell on it further. On Wednesday morning I received another Instagram detailing all the activities for the celebration. Now I was intrigued, thinking maybe I should go. I checked out the available flights. I checked prices and all of a sudden Delta showed one for 44K points, which was crazy low, as I had flown to Rennsport in the fall for 80K points. I figured it was either a mistake or it was 44K points for a one-way ticket to Germany. Nevertheless, I logged in, selected the flights,

I departed my airport (PHF), which is five minutes from my house, Thursday at 2PM and arrived at Stuttgart at 8 AM Friday morning. After I landed, I drove to Porsche, a 22KM trip which took 30 minutes. Then I walked into the museum at 10.30AM where the VIP hostess advised me that my factory tour would start at 1.30PM and last about three hours, leaving me three hours to hang out in the practically empty museum, which I spent watching the workers set it up for the festivities, taking the self-guided tour, perusing the exhibits and taking pictures. When my factory tour began, I could not believe it, but my good fortune continued. The workers on the 992 assembly line were in their early stages of training. As a result, the cars were essentially being built by hand. To top it off, every car going down the line was a different color, making me feel

like I was in a Skittles factory. After the factory tour I walked a few blocks to Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur where I tried to get access to check on a friend’s Gold Exclusive Turbo S Cabriolet (1 of 100) but was nicely denied, although after begging the guard for a while he held the door open long enough for me to get a peek inside that "Temple of Magic"... Wow....991.2 cars in every color and build stage imaginable. I went back to the museum, where they were staging a few seldom seen models for the big event Saturday and Sunday. Then I hit the Goodie


Store and headed to my hotel, a 15 minute drive. On Saturday museum was packed. The museum staff wanted to gear the exhibits and many of the activities to kids. It had invited all residents of Stuttgart to visit the museum for free. By 9AM, when the museum opened it felt like a middle school playground at recess, in other words organized chaos. The museum staff, as well as other Porsche employees, had set up play stations every 50 feet. The stations were all geared for children of every age, with activities ranging from coloring, face painting, and puzzles to building a Lego 911, which was located underneath the upside down 962 exhibit. There were photo booths, caricature artists and, my favorite, the ten black bags in which you had to reach in and feel the item and identify them, though this activity was really for the “old kids,” as the items included a 356 spark plug, a center wheel nut, a tow hook, and, most challenging, an item that felt like a bar of soap but was actually a piece of balsa wood used in the clay design of the 992. It was all so very cool. By noon the place was really crowded so I crossed the street and went window shopping at the Porsche Zentrum for a while, hoping the crowds would thin out. That never happened, even though I stayed until the museum closed at 6PM, just taking it all in. Though I was not aware of it as I left for dinner Saturday night, I was about to receive a

10

PORSCHERAMA /SPRING ‘19

magnificent gift. I am friends with Tanja Stadnic, a world renown Porsche acrylic stylist and painter. She was in Stuttgart to present a painting of a Red 992 to retiring 911 designer, August Achleitner, as red is his favorite color. Tanja and I met for dinner Saturday night. At dinner she presented me with a painting of the Porsche Crest on a red background, which was the color of my first 911 that I bought in 1974. To say that I was humbled and in total shock would be an understatement of criminal proportions. On Sunday I went back to the museum for the 9.30AM opening and the two hour behind the doors tour. In the afternoon I took the two hour architectural tour of the museum, all the while noting that the museum was

twice as crowded as it was on Saturday, though in typical German fashion, it was very well controlled and organized, despite the fact that the larger of the two escalator broke down. When I booked my trip, I had no serious expectations. I just thought it would be fun to see the museum. I had no idea just how spectacular it would be, reminding me yet again that sometimes you just have to show up to have a great time.


ACCELERATING CHANGE:

WOMEN’S TRACK DAY By Mariana Small Photographs by Stanislav Kaplan

“THIS WAS the best day ever!” “I’m having so much fun!” “This is the reason why I became an instructor.” These are just some of the reactions you could hear from participants and instructors at the Accelerating Change: Women’s Track Day held at Buttonwillow Raceway on March 07, kicking-off to the International Women’s Day celebrations. Aura Kawaski, participant and PCA LA member, summed it up from the driver’s perspective, “What an amazing day I had!! The fun I had can’t even be described with words. I was literary BURSTING with joy!!! The people involved were SO organized in very tiny detail, it was impressive! Loved that it was all women. Hope it happens again!! “ PORSCHERAMA /SPRING ‘19

Ed Won, former president of the Diablo region and a volunteer who was instrumental in making the event happen, summed it up from the volunteer perspective, “Volunteering at the Accelerating Change event reminds me of why I love the track experience. Seeing the smiles as the ladies exit the cars beaming from the sense of accomplishment and jumping with excitement. Running Black Flag was a bit boring as the ladies were the most well behaved participants I have

seen. It was such a pleasure. I hope to volunteer again soon.” This fun-filled day was a revival of the Los Angeles’ region involvement in track days as well as the goal of getting more women to participate in these types of programs.

IT’S A PARADISE Story by Harry Kraushaar. Photographs by Stanislav Kaplan.

I T ’ S A PA R A D I S E . There is no other explanation for it. We have member breakfast’s every month. Most are drop in. No reservations required. The places are great. They vary in location from the West Side to Malibu. They are well attended, and they are fun. Several times per year we hold our breakfast at someplace a little more special. Places like the Porsche Experience Center in Carson and the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills. These breakfasts require reservations. The places are great. And the events are usually filled to

16

PORSCHERAMA /SPRING ‘19

Maybe it is the food. Maybe it is the parking lot filled with Porsches and not much else. Whatever it is, members flock to this breakfast. This year was no exception. The day of the breakfast dawned sunny, a somewhat unique event this winter. It was a beautiful day to cruise PCH up to Paradise Cove. It was nice for the chit chat before breakfast. It was comfortable in the restaurant. And it was perfect for driving the twisties through the canyons after we ate.

PCA-LA’s Sina Saeidi created a great driving route for a spirited drive in and around the Malibu hills before ending a few miles down PCH at Ollo, also in Malibu, and one of our valued breakfast locations, where there was a post drive discussion. In the end it turned out to be just another norm Paradise Cove breakfast. A great time was had by all. Hopefully, we can get more space from the restaurant next year, so even more of us can enjoy it.

capacity. But it takes time to fill them up. Once per year we hold our breakfast at Paradise Cove in Malibu. This breakfast requires a reservation. It sells out in a hurry, like within a day. The member interest in this event is staggering. We had over 100 members there. It is hard to get a read on why it is so popular. Sort of like trying to discern just what makes Tito’s Tacos or Tommy’s or Pinks so popular. Maybe it is the beachside location. Maybe it is the time of year. Maybe it is the drive in Malibu after breakfast. PORSCHERAMA /SPRING ‘19

Automotive repair, such as many other professions has changed drastically over the last 15 years. It has gone from a completely mechanical hands-on diagnosis and repair to an almost hands off research based process. Too many automotive repair facilities will erase the fault code(s) basically to “just turn the warning light off”, at the customer’s request. In almost all situations this is the wrong approach to a proper overall repair. By turning off the warning light, i.e. erasing the fault codes, they are removing the history, the valuable data and detailed information that can be utilized

for properly diagnosing the vehicle. Fault codes should never be erased unless the issue or fault is repaired. From 1996 on, all vehicles sold in the USA have what is known as OBD-II (On Board Diagnostics II). OBD-II is the gatekeeper of the engine management system which oversees all operating parameters that effect engine tailpipe emissions including monitoring the evaporative emissions system i.e. fuel tank vapor containment and processing. OBD-II constantly monitors the tailpipe emissions via the oxygen (emissions) sensors in the exhaust stream.

If the tailpipe emissions reach or exceed a predetermined threshold, the low emission standards are in jeopardy. If this happens the computer will set a fault code and illuminate the check engine warning light (CEL). Many other systems on the car also monitor their own operation. Some examples are the MRS (multiple restraint system or air bags), TPMS (tire pressure monitoring sensors) etcetera. The same diagnosis procedures need to be followed regardless of the system in question.

Here is my approach to the modern Porsche diagnosis:

3

Print out the fault codes and relevant data.

4) Check the factory technical service bulletins for any recommended repair possibilities or upgrades. (This includes reprogramming, recoding and software upgrades which is especially true on later cars produced from 1996 on).

5) The computer data, factory information and the vehicle’s symptoms plus the technician’s experience and training will provide the direction to the proper diagnosis.

6) Once the repair is performed the process is not yet completed.

Now the repair must be confirmed by utilizing the factory diagnostic tool so the technician can identify that the problem(s) are no longer present. Only at this point can it be considered that the repairs are completed. ALEX LIORENTE
