Debbie Garrison

Ruth Danielsen lost her sister on May 31 st . She was only 68 and passed away only 2

months after finding out she had melanoma.

Vickie Garrison lost her Mom to colon cancer this month. She had been ill for some time

and had been under Hospice Care but last few weeks have been very difficult and she got

worse very quickly. Our condolences to both Ruth and Dick and to Vickie and Skip.

Fred Parks is having surgery this Wed. June 20 th on his left hand. Our Well Wishes and

prayers go out to him.

Marcie Jarvis fell and injured her hand as she disjointed her finger and it took 6 hours at

the hospital to re-align her fingers. This after 2 weeks ago spending 5 days in the hospital

with a kidney infection. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Skip and Leigh Ann’s youngest grandson Cruz fell the first week of school and broke two

bones in his hand and had to have pins put in. The last week of school the pins were

removed but now he has an infection. So, he’ll have to wait a little longer to go

swimming.

Charlotte’s Brother-in-law Bob, Rosemary’s husband had open heart surgery on May 21 st .

He had his aortic valve replaced and did well. Two days ago, he had to return to the

hospital to have fluid removed from his lungs. They removed 900 ccs of fluid and while he

was there they discovered a blood clot. He’s back on the road to recovery now. Charlotte

and sisters Joanne and Rosemary stayed in a hotel near the hospital and my guess is they

very bad or they had a very good time because Charlotte said they can’t go back there

ever again!

Charlie and Kim Fosnaugh’s 7-year-old lab blew out her knee on May 30 th . Her surgery

takes a specialist and he won’t be able to be here to do the surgery until July 16 th . She

had the same surgery on her other knee just a couple of years ago; until then she is on

bed rest and meds to keep her calm.


Joyce sent me a note that their family enjoyed having Ed home for Father’s Day dinner.

Jill pushed him in his wheelchair the 2 1/2 blocks from the care facility to home and back

after a great meal with the family. Their Grandson Kevin did some major garage cleaning

for him. He enjoyed watching all the activity and having a great meal with the rest of the

family.

Pat and Patrick had a nice visit with Jim and Lynne Agar and John and Jo Johnson when

they were in St George, Ut last month. They had a great time on their tour of the parks

there. Met some interesting people from all over the U.S. plus a couple from Australia.

On their way home, they swung down to Desert Hot Springs to visit Patrick’s uncle and

aunt before returning home.

Diane Tjerrild told us about the excitement at her office recently. Ivanka Trump visited

her office on her recent fundraising junket in Fresno.

Keith and I had a great time RVing at the coast with Laninghams, Nulls, Hendersons,

Henefents, Sue Buwalda and her hubby John & the other Garrisons. We relaxed, had

great dinners & sat an around a fire every night; thank you Keith, and Glenn for hauling

the wood and of course, our Fire Master Chuck! It was cold and we wore sweatshirts but

when it was sunny it was beautiful. Keith took a tumble over some exposed roots of a

tree and almost fell in the fire and was saved by Glenn and Herbert. The same fire that

Glenn almost fell in the night before. Anyway, we patched up Keith and Freida reported

the incident to a Ranger that just happened to be going by and within 10 minutes another

Ranger came to take a report. By the next morning the firepit was moved and the root

area repaired.

Great News about my friend Janet Massicci who has played dominoes with the girls. She

had surgery last Thursday for a brain tumor and the biopsy came back with no cancer.

She is recovering at home and doing great and thanks all the Domino Girls for their

prayers.

Ruth Danielsen has a new ride! A yellow trike with black wheels! Her next wish is to get it

pinstriped.

Thanks for sharing all your Sunshine and Clouds,

Your Sunshine Girl, Debbie G.

PS Members-If any of you know anyone is looking for a furry forever friend or knows

someone who is, I have again been blessed with a litter of kittens. White, black and white

or gray tabby with white, they’re very cute!


Mark Reuss tore the nose off a ZR1!

Mark Reuss, General Motors head of global product development, caused a half-hour delay at the

beginning of the 2018 Detroit Grand Prix on June 3. In a new statement, the high-ranking exec

apologizes for the incident: “I want to thank you all for your well wishes today. I am ok. I have driven

this course many, many times. I have paced this race in the wet, cold, hot, and calm. On Z06’s,

Grand Sports, and other things. It is never a casual thing for me, but an honor to be asked. Today I

let down my friends, my family, Indy Car, our city and my company. Sorry does not describe it. I want

to thank our engineers for providing me the safety I know is the best in the world."

GM Exec Crashes Corvette ZR1 On Parade Lap of Detroit Indy Car Race

Reuss was driving a new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 during the parade lap of the race when he lost

control of the 755-horsepower (563-kilowatt) coupe. Reuss was exiting Turn 2 of the Belle Isle track

when the rear end stepped out after going over a small hill. The car spun, and the front end collided

with the wall. The 'Vette sustained serious damage, including tearing off the front fascia and leaving

debris on the circuit. Neither Reuss nor the passenger were injured. Immediately after the

crash, Reuss sat in the car for several moments. We suspect he was experiencing a mix of confusion

over what just happened and embarrassment of making such a public driving error. The Detroit

Grand Prix occurs within sight of GM's corporate headquarters at the Renaissance Center, and the

automaker's employees often attend the race.

In case you missed it, the video below caught some great views of of the action.

2019 CHEVROLET CORVETTE ZR1

FIRST TEST: OUT WITH A BANG!

Did Chevrolet save the best for last? Chris Walton Words, Jade Nelson MT Photo June 30, 2018

This is it. The zenith. The top dog. The 755-horsepower ne plus ultra Chevrolet Corvette C7. The

most powerful and likely the last variant of the front-engine Corvette. While waiting for the arrival of

the mid-engine C8 somewhere in the not-distant future, 2019 model year, there are now 28 iterations

of the seventh-generation Corvette (C7), including coupe/convertible versions of Stingray, Grand

Sport, Z06, and now the ZR1. Is this as good as it gets? Is the ZR1 the greatest Corvette ever?

LT5 VS LT4

Let’s start with what makes the ZR1 the ZR1, namely its mighty LT5 motor. If you like comparisons,

this C7 ZR1’s supercharged V-8 makes more than double the horsepower of the V-8 in the 1990 C4

ZR1 and 117 more horsepower than the C6 ZR1. Based on the venerable LT4 found in the Corvette

Z06, Camaro ZL1, and Cadillac CTS-V, the 6.2-liter LT5 features a new 95mm throttle body, both

port- and direct-injection fuel delivery, an upgraded crankshaft, a new oiling system, and a new Eaton

supercharger. At 2.6 liters, the supercharger is 52 percent larger than the LT4’s, yet cruising at 80

mph, it draws only 1 horsepower while providing virtually no boost. On the other hand, it needs 110

horsepower to spin its roots-type helix rotors up to 15,860 rpm to make peak boost pressure of 13.96

psi near redline. The LT5’s intercooler has roughly double the heat exchange capacity of the LT4’s,

and there are four new heat exchangers (13 “radiators” in total) tucked hither and thither. Combining

all of this with the new “halo” hood, the ZR1 boasts 41 percent more air flow than the Z06, which is

notoriously prone to power-sapping engine-protection mode due to excess heat. Rest assured,

Corvette “Jake” fans, the two ZR1s we had showed no problems with heat during our instrumented

testing (eight consecutive quarter-mile passes followed by a dozen laps of our figure-eight course).

Nor did either lose power with hot laps (two sets of three each) at Willow Springs Raceway, where

we’ve previously documented issues.


LIGHTING THE CANDLE

Bolted to that all-American pushrod motor (which prefers to gulp fuel we can’t pump in 91-octane

California) is an optional eight-speed automatic transmission ($1,725). In Track mode, enter the

Performance Traction Management (PTM) program, select Sport 1, press the brake pedal to the

floorboard, whack the throttle similarly, wait for the revs to stabilize (at about 1,400 rpm), then release

the brakes. Doing this will produce a wisp of wheel spin that will be monitored/managed all the way

through first gear. The best launch-control results made 0–60 times of 3.2 to 3.3 seconds and steady

quarter miles of 11.2 to 11.4 seconds at 130 mph—and anybody could do that, repeatedly. The

launch control is that good. On the other hand, turning all the electronic aids off and using the “driver’s

best effort” to manage wheel spin ekes out a couple tenths here and few mph there. Surprisingly, it’s

easy to launch, considering the engine produces 715 lb-ft of Michelin-melting torque. The throttle

response is unexpectedly linear, the tires so talkative that finding the just-right progression between

runaway wheel spin and ultimate acceleration only takes a couple attempts to learn. Make no

mistake, it can get out of hand quickly, but there’s a friendly cooperation inherent to this car that’s

lacking in, say, a 707-hp, 650-lb-ft Hellcat that simply cannot put its power to the ground. The ZR1

is remarkable in this way. Our best efforts resulted in a 0–60 time of 3.0 seconds on the way to a

10.8-second 133.1-mph quarter mile. Probably owing to our 91- not 93-octane fuel, we were slightly

behind GM’s claims of a 2.9-second 0–60 time and 10.6-second/134-mph quarter mile. Our best

results came from the ZR1 with its optional ZTK Track Performance package ($2,995), which

replaces Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP (run-flats) with grippier Pilot Sport Cup 2 ZP tires. The ZTK

package also adds stiffer suspension tuning and greater aerodynamic downforce courtesy a flat

undercarriage, a front splitter with endplates, and the adjustable “high” wing. That aero pack offers

60 percent more downforce than the comparable Z06/Z07 Stage 3 setup. Chevy says it nets 950

pounds at top speed (212 mph). They also say Vmax testing on the autobahn drained all the fuel

tank in 15 minutes. Because of the ZTK’s added downforce/drag, we had anticipated the “low-wing”

car to perform better in a straight line, but instead it came down to initial tire grip. The high-wing car

simply dug in better, maintained grip throughout first gear, and that’s all she wrote.


IT GOES AROUND CORNERS, TOO

The two quickest Corvettes to lap our figure-eight course (Grand Sport and Z06/Z07) tied at 22.3

seconds. Our editors often say the 2017 Grand Sport was the best-balanced Corvette ever, with the

grip of the Z06/Z07 but an ability to put its power to use that the Z06/Z07 lacks. Its impressive lap

proves this. We expected a similar lap time from the ZR1 duo. However, in a case of bringing a pair

of howitzers to a knife fight, they only managed to circle our racetrack in a bottle in 22.7 and 22.9

seconds. Why? It’s simply too difficult to use all of the power in a parking lot, and there’s twitchiness

to it that previous Corvettes didn’t suffer. A mere week after the infamous and unfortunate Detroit

Grand Prix pace car wreck, test driver Kim Reynolds said: “Brakes are killer—you can drop the

hammer at virtually the last second. Turn-in feels like lateral suction, but after that there’s a bit more

understeer than I’d like. Midcorner grip is great, then exiting, the tail walks (using third gear). It steps

out in a digital way—just pops out a notch very quickly, and you have to respond very modestly to it

to avoid a “tank slapper.” Tremendous power—wow wow wow.” So besides this tendency to “walk

the tail,” there wasn’t as much lateral grip on the skidpad portion, either. Where the Z06/Z07

sustained 1.17 g and the Grand Sport 1.18 g, the ZR1 pair managed 1.07 g and 1.11 g. It’s not much

difference, but it all adds up.


LIKE A PRO

What the ZR1 was built to do was set records at real racetracks. Luckily, we’ve got “the fastest track

in the West” at our disposal, and a tame race car driver, too. Randy Pobst has set and reset the lap

record for production cars at Willow Springs, so he knows his way around. Having recently set a

production car lap record in a 2019 Corvette ZR1 at Road Atlanta, he knows his Corvettes, too. Did

the ZR1 set another record at the “Big” track? Sadly no, but it did outpace the last Z06 he drove there

by a significant 1.3 seconds. In order, the top five spots currently belong to a 2018 Porsche 911 GT2

RS (1:21.08), 2018 McLaren 720S (1:21.75), 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Performante (1:22.53),

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder (1:23.54), and 2017 Ford GT (1:23.69). In sixth place by a mere 0.01

second, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with the ZTK package made a 1:23.70 lap.

With Chevrolet on hand to support the effort and three sets of tires sacrificed in the process, it was

the best that car could do that day. The “low-wing” car was just 1.15 seconds behind, its 1:24.85

earning 11th place overall. When asked to compare the ZR1 to the Z06, Pobst said, “The ride is

more compliant, especially in the most aggressive mode. Brakes are still strong—as always, world

class. The [ZTK] wing does add high-speed stability. Even the ZR1 without the aero package is

better-balanced [than the Z06/Z07] in high-speed corners.” However, he followed up with, “While the

car has a big bump in power [over the Z06], it’s still twitchy trying to accelerate in the lower gears.

And that’s the ’Vette’s great downfall.” When asked about how the ZR1 handled the duress of making

three or four hot laps in succession, Pobst said, “Happily, greatly improved cooling keeps both intake

temps—as a result of the larger supercharger and intercoolers—and engine coolant and oil temps

to more survivable numbers. I saw stable readings under 220 for water and under 275 for oil. Still

rather high, but much better than the pegged readings of the poor Z06.”


BACK TO REALITY

Around town, the ZR1 draws a crowd when parked, unsolicited questions from grocery store

employees retrieving shopping carts, and even more thumbs-up reactions on the road. It is as overthe-top

as they come, as it should be. On the road, the non-ZTK-equipped ZR1 rides as smoothly as

every other C7 Corvette I’ve ever driven. The ZTK is harsher, like the RS versions of the Porsche

911 GT2/GT3 are. The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 has variously succeeded and failed in setting

performance records, however. It is indeed the quickest to 60 mph and fastest quarter-miler Corvette

we’ve ever tested on the dragstrip, edging out a Z06/Z07, also with an eight-speed automatic. It

stopped from 60 mph 2 feet shorter than the previous best Corvettes did (a handful of Grand Sports

and Z06s). It lapped Willow Springs faster than any previous Corvette, yet it failed to set an outright

record there, on our skidpad, or to top our figure-eight list. It is true the ZR1 is an awesome

achievement, costing a whole trunkload less money than those above (and many below) it on the

Willow Springs lap times list. At the end of the C7-era, this is indeed as good as it gets for a frontengine

Corvette. Unless there’s a factory “lightweight” version coming or a track-only special, there

aren’t any more tricks up the sleeves of Corvette engineers. Besides, they’re all working on the midengine

replacement. Indeed, Corvette fans, this is as good as it gets, warts and all, which means it’s

the perfect farewell for the C7.

These are all still live links you may click on for more information!

Often referred to as the world’s largest moving automotive event, the National Corvette Caravan is a

celebration of America’s Sports Car, culminating in Bowling Green, Kentucky for the anniversary

celebration of the National Corvette Museum. Hosted only once every five years. The 6th National

Corvette Caravan is slated for August 28-31, 2019. Regional caravans will form and join other

caravans as they travel across the United States to meet in Bowling Green, Kentucky for four days of

festivities at the National Corvette Museum. An event such as this requires years of planning and

coordinating. All help is appreciated! The Museum is located at I-65, exit 28 in South Central Kentucky

and is open daily, 8-5 Central Time.

CLICK HERE for a schedule of activities for this year’s 24 th

Anniversary of the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.

You can look at this as an example of what may be

available for us at next year’s 25 th Anniversary and the

6 th Annual Corvette Caravan to Bowling Green Ky.

This is not the time to register for our trip in 2019, that

will be later this year.

Stay tuned for more information!

Well we did it!!!! The president’s mystery tour was a great success, I think everyone

had a great time. We had great food and places to go. Couldn’t have happened

without our committee, 1 st My Dear Connie, Mike & Lynne Henenfent, Dick & Ruth

worth it. This is such a great club! This is only Part I. Next Month look for Part II.
