Mike Brodigan, President
y friend, Wayne, is pretty
anal about keeping his car
clean. He will spend days
making sure everything sparkles! Too
bad Wayne is not a Porsche guy. I think
he could give some of you concours guys
a go of it. Then there is my brother-in-law,
Dan. Dan keeps his truck "Colorado clean." That means his
truck gets the $3.00 wash at the gas station twice a year, and
in between washes, he drives his truck through the puddles
to knock off the big chunks of dirt. He uses a leaf blower to
clean the inside. I fall somewhere in the middle and that's
not good enough for a Porsche guy.
With the help of my buddy, Hans Hoffman, and RUF
Auto Centre, everything changes. Hans and I were talking
about how my poor 1999 Boxster seldom gets a good wash
job and has never been detailed. We came up with a plan.
Hans is going to have his team detail my car so I can enter
it in our first concours event of the year, and I am going to
write a check to cover it. Here's the catch: Hans has to tell
us what it took to get my car concours ready, and I write
the check to The Huffaker Hughes Hope House. Everybody
wins but poor Hans, but it might be kind of fun and it helps
our favorite charity. If my car gets an award, I will double
the size of the check.
I want to thank Bryan Bell for covering for me last
month. We went on a pretty cool vacation. We flew to
Buenos Aires, and cruised around the south tip of South
America, ending in Santiago, Chile. One stop was The
Falkland Islands, where we went on a pub-crawl and hit 6
out of Port Stanley's 7 pubs. We had so much fun we hit a
couple of them a second time. Another unique stop was a
Anuncucca, six out of seve!
day in Antarctica. Boy, talk about desolate! But beautiful.
My wife, Judy, has one more continent to make all seven. I
think we are going to Australia soon.
Slipstream will get a new feature soon. We haven't
worked out the details yet, but the plan is to recognize a
special member each month. You all know lots of them. They
are the members who are always going above and beyond to
make their community, church, charity, or our club special.
So give one of us a shout and tell us about that special person.
There are four beautiful women I would like to say a
special thank you to. Jan Mayo, Lisa Steele, Wendy Shoffit
and Tracey Gross. If you have been to even a couple May
activities you probably know them all. They have been a
godsend to me and have been doing awesome things for our
club for years. They really exemplify "it's not just the cars,
it's the people."
See ya soon, Mike. 0
