  • Zora words spoken to me every Summer from 1978-1989 not forgotten. Mike Furman

    ~Even though Zora Duntov was born in Belgium his parents were Russian and his thick Russian accent proved out every time we spoke.
    I was fortunate to work for the Malcolm Konner Auto Group in Paramus, NJ from 1978-1989 and every Summer the Konner family would host
    Zora and Elfie Duntov at their home in Ridgewood, NJ. It was during those car show weeks that I got to speak to Zora just like it was any
    normal conversation on the back porch. His thick accent was rich in tone and his words were always to the point. Even back then he would
    say that "all the "Press" articles on the Mid Engine Sold Magazines not Corvettes" I can remember it like it was yesterday as it seemed
    to always be the Elephant in the room. One funny story...Gary Konner recently told me...back in the late 80's he made a seating mistake at a Dinner at his home
    by putting Larry Shinoda next to Zora Duntov at the family dinner table...boy that didn't go well as Zora still was mad that Shinoda left Chevrolet (20+ years earlier) for
    that other named brand!
    I had many Zora, Shinoda etc signed items lost because of Hurricane Sandy October 2012 but managed to save a few items and have rebuilt my collection...but
    my memories of those Summers from so long ago can never be taken from me. I wonder what Mr Duntov would think now that we are oh so close to seeing a Mid Engine Corvette
    for 2020? ...and what would he think of the internet and this Mid Engine Corvette Forum?

    What fun history for us to live second hard — while you literally lived it. Oh, to have known Zora. You are fortunate person! Thank you Mike.

      Mike - very cool that you got to meet Zora. We owe that cat a lot with our love for Corvettes.

      I hope they name the ME after him.

          I personally know over ten people on this forum who are on Mike’s ME list. I have been on it since Feb. 1, 2015.

              He's attained the well-earned mark of the best in Corvette sales. It's easy to think, "man what a great job he's got", but he put a lot of time in getting to this point. And we are beneficiaries of it.

              Now, if he could just email me a pic of a silver ME with tinted/comp grey wheels. . . . . . LOL.

                Click image for larger version  Name:	FF98203E-0D55-4E60-8292-0D308BFF1FEE.jpeg Views:	2 Size:	775.4 KB ID:	2027 Mike is “The Man,” and you are so right that he works so hard, works so many hours to help us all.

                I do have, thanks to fvs, a series of different renderings of the ME, all picture identically from the front quarter, in 13 different colors. Tonight or tomorrow night I will put up all of them in a new thread, so every member could “try them on.” Of course, as per our thread on maybe up to twelve colors next yer, and with typically two new replacement colors per years, even with my putting up all of them that I have, might be changes for the 2020 MY. And also not just colors but the hood itself, and other things. As FVS says, “I am sure that my renderings will not be as good as what GM is going to reveal.”

                Until I get that thread up, here is the closest body color to what you are wanting.
