Casey Fluhr – Golfin’ in The Heat

caserona-11

Today I sat down with Casey Fluhr, another one of those smiling faces I always see while walking around Runde Chevrolet. In return for all of the warm “good morning’s” and “how-ya-doin’s” he passed my way, I am now sharing him with the world on a relatively new technology I refer to as the World Wide Web.

We might as well get right down to it — What do you do here?
Service consultant … when you bring a vehicle in, we will check you in and ask you what’s wrong with your vehicle.  I write repair orders and talk to mechanics about the vehicle problems.

How long have you worked here?
I’ve been here almost 16 years.   I started out washing cars here as a high school job and then worked my way up to where I am now.

Are you from the area?
Yea, I grew up in East Dubuque and now I live in Hazel Green, WI where I live in a townhouse.

What’s your best experience at Runde’s to-date?
There were some pretty strange things that happened, but I think the best experience is getting to meet the different people throughout the years and building relationships. It seems like almost everywhere I go I see someone that I know.

What kind of past-times do you enjoy?
I like golf.  Also I like to go to Iowa Hawkeye and Green Bay Packer games every year.

Married?
Nope, single.

Any pets?
Nope.

Just yourself, huh?
Yep. Just lookin’ for the right woman.

Do you have a favorite hangout spot in the Tri-State area?
I’d say The Three Mile House or Timmerman’s. They both have great food and a nice environment.

Do you go out with your family a lot?
I have a sister in Madison and my parents live in Dubuque near Thunder Hills. But mostly it’s me and my friends going out.

If you were a vehicle what vehicle would you be and why?
I’d say a Chevy Suburban because they are great for travel and tailgating at football games. Maybe a Corvette for fun.

Brewers or Cubs?
Cubs.

Dogs or Cats?
Dogs.

What’s one invention you can’t live without?
I’d have to say the telephone.

What’s your most memorable experience in a car or truck?
When I was 17 and only working here for a couple of weeks, they had me take down a Corvette to the auction in Mt. Vernon. It was really cool especially for me to drive a Corvette at 17 years old.

Bet you told all of your friends, huh?
Oh yeah.

Do you watch movies?
Yea, my favorite movie is probably Top Gun. I’m a big Tom Cruise fan, I like his movies.

Not for looks… I assume?
Oh no no no.

What’s the last movie you saw in the theatres?
Oh man, I can’t remember…. oh yeah, Step Brothers – it was pretty good.

Like Will Ferrell?
Yea, he’s pretty funny.

 

Do you consider the glass half empty or half-full?
Half-full 

Look forward to drinkin’ the other half?
Oh yeah.

If you were to win the lottery what would you do with the money?
I’d retire, have a home in Arizona, play more golf, and just travel around the world. I’d also take care of my family and friends.

You like to travel?
Oh yeah. I go to Arizona every winter for a week to play golf. I like to go to football games, as well.

What kind of music do you like?
A little bit of everything.

What’s in your CD player right now?
Well it’s a mix. A little bit of everything right now.

What’s your favorite car?
I’d have to say the Chevy Corvette.

There you have it ladies: a nice, sincere guy that’s single. You can line up at our East Dubuque service door if you want to meet him. Thanks Casey!
