All Enthusiast Evening……… April 25, 2007

Posted by wilsonniblett in Enthusiastic Commentary.


If you didn’t make it out to the Wilson Niblett Performanse hosted Ron Fellows Evening…you missed a great time!

It is no secret that we at Wilson Niblett are so passionately involved in this Corvette hobby because we are core enthusiasts.  We enjoy sharing our love of Corvettes with as many other enthusiasts as possible.  Last night was no exception.

As the Largest Corvette Dealer in Canada we had received 5 of the 33 Ron Fellows Edition Z06 Corvettes in our allotment.  We were looking for a way to celebrate these fantastic cars that pay tribute to Canada’s own Ron Fellows , and all that he has done for the Corvette marque.  We invited Ron to come and speak to his fellow enthusiasts in our new showroom.

Word spread quickly that the Most Popular Corvette Team Driver would be here to share his thoughts and experiences with his legions of fans and they didn’t let him down.  They showed up in the hundreds.  We cleared the parking area and by shortly after 7:00PM it was filled with enthusiast’s Corvettes.  They came in with all manner of items, including Corvette engine parts, with the hopes of having Ron Fellows autograph them.  Even many of the General Motors of Canada dignitaries showed up including the Corvette & Cadillac Brand Manager.

One of the new Ron Fellows Edition Z06 buyers was picking up his vehicle and Ron delivered the keys, autographed his documentation, signed his fuel rail cover and then drove the car out of the showroom.  There was a lot of excitement about that moment.

We felt that this evening should be about honouring Ron Fellows for all his success in Corvette Racing and all that he has done for Corvette.  Gordon C. Wilson, the President of the Wilson Niblett Motors Group presented Ron a plaque from all the Wilson Niblett Team to commemorate his achievements.

After his talk to all the enthusiasts there was  a lively question and answer period.  Then Ron offered to sign autographs for his fans.  Folks were lined up around the showroom patiently awaiting there turn.  As the night wore on people started to fire up their Corvettes and leave for the night.

When we were closing up the dealership and walking across the parking lot at the end of the evening there was only one Corvette left.  We thanked Ron again and watched as he pulled his Silver Z06 out into the night, with the exhaust note barking as he slipped down the road out of sight.  He had stayed and happily signed every item that his fans had requested.  I don’t know who was having more fun…the enthusiasts or Ron!

He is a true Corvette Enthusiast……….

Thank You Ron Fellows.
