So, you run a race school and need to break in 20 new 2019 C7 ZR1 Corvettes before you let your students use them. What are you going to do? Well, Ron Fellow had just this problem last year. The solution was easy, find at least 20 people to drive the cars from Detroit, MI to the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School in Pahrump, NV (approximately 2300 miles). The lucky drivers did the trip in 3 days and gave them the opportunity to break the brand-new ZR1s in before they hit the race track.
The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motor Resort runs a school designed specifically for C7 Corvette owners. The classes teach basic dynamic car control, proper cornering techniques and other performance driving skills, and is one of the best places for Corvette fans to learn how to properly drive their car around a race track and under different weather conditions. The school is endorsed by GM and they even offer huge discounts to the initial purchaser of a C7 Corvette.
Ron Fellows’ sons Sam and Patrick joined in on the road trip and put together a video documenting the trip, embedded below.
1981 DeLorean DMC12. Stainless exterior w/Gray interior, 2.9L V6, 5-spd. manual transaxle. This “Garage Find” is a one owner car purchased new here in So. CA. by a very good collector client of ours. It’s managed to accumulate just over 300 miles since new!.
What Mike likes about this car: “I love the fact that GM answered the cry for nostalgia. Bringing back the profile of a great era. What Chevy produced in the 60’s is still a rolling art form. These New Camaro’s are everything they are cracked up to be. This being the ultimate throwback to 1969 where the all aluminum block and head engines ruled the drag strips. We will agree to sell this car to any buyer as long as they can grab the $100 bill off the dash during one of my acceleration runs!! Ok. You can buy it regardless.”
This 313 original mile example came to us from a very good collector client of ours right here in So. CA.! He purchased it new in ’12 and put it in his vast 150 plus car collection! We were able to pry it from him along with a few other cars (including a ’17 ZL-1!). It still smells new inside and even has some of the plastic on the seats!
So, what if you were in the market for a ’12 ZL-1? A “new” ZR-1. Well, we think this example is about as close as you might get to one.
Ashen Gray Metallic with Black interior and 6-speed manual transmission!
6.2-liter/580hp, supercharged V8 and loaded with options!
