Loyal Janesville Customer Leonard Holub Picked Up His Seventh Truck From Runde Auto Group

Leonard Holub

Leonard Holub, of Janesville, WI, drove away in his seventh truck from Runde Chevrolet today!

His latest truck is a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 4WD LTZ Dbl Cab.

“It’s a great vehicle,” he said. “It’s gets good mileage, it’s dependable, and I love the styling.”

Leonard does a lot of long distance driving to and from various farms he owns in other cities.

“I’d rather drive this than a car — it is as comfortable or more than many cars today,” he said.

Leonard drives two hours to buy his trucks at Runde Auto Group. His salesperson is Dave Frazier.

“He’s treated me very fairly,” Leonard said. “He’s honest and has treated me well.”

In his free time, Leonard is the president and treasurer of the Blackhawk Toms Turkey Federation in Janesville. The conservation group is a chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.

“The NWTF brought wild turkeys back here again,” he said. “They were extinct and in the ’70s, they brought them back to this area.”

The group has their annual banquet on April 6 at the UAW Local 95 Union Hall in Janesville. Doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner is at 6:30 p.m. Click here for more information about the event.

You can be sure Leonard will be there with his new Silverado!

Happy motoring, Leonard!

Two Vehicles in One Day for Loyal Runde Customers

Mike and Anita P

Mike and Anita P., of Lena, IL, said they weren’t sure if they were crazy when they left Runde Chevrolet on Tuesday.

“We’ve never bought two vehicles on the same day,” Mike said.

Anita drove off the lot in a red 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab and Mike drove away in a black 2018 Chevrolet Cruze. Their salesperson was Dave Frazier.

“He’s the reason we’re here,” Anita said.

Mike agreed, “He’s just a good guy. We don’t really call anybody else but Dave.”

Mike, Anita, and their family members have bought many vehicles from Runde’s. For Mike and Anita, it’s been mostly trucks.

“It’s been 18 years since we had a car,” Anita said. “We’ve had trucks for a while.”

They still have a 1999 Tahoe that they don’t plan on ever getting rid of. It has more than 180,000 miles.

“Chevys are good trucks,” Mike said. “The original reason I stopped here (in 2005) was they had more new trucks in one place than I had ever seen.”

The couple owns Beach’s Supper Club in Lena, and also have a wide variety of side jobs and activities that keep them busy.

“It’s not very often we aren’t working,” Mike said.

The Cruze was a perfect fit for one of Mike’s side jobs because he puts on a lot of miles, so he wanted great gas mileage. The truck will be Anita’s daily driver since she makes longer trips and feels safer in a truck.

We’d like to thank Mike and Anita for choosing Runde Auto Group. Please join us in wishing them many miles of happy motoring!

Proud Parents of a Marine Pick Up their Son’s Car at Runde’s

Dave and Lisa Scharnhorst1

Alex Scharnhorst is in the Middle East, but that didn’t stop him from getting a vehicle from Runde Auto Group!

His parents, Dave and Lisa Scharnhorst, stopped into Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque today to pick up their son’s new 2015 Chevy Sonic.

“He got it, we are just kind of the proxies,” Lisa said, explaining that their 20-year-old son is overseas with the military so they are picking up his vehicle for when he comes home in December.

Lisa brought along “Flat Alex,” a stick with a photo of her son on each side. Alex, who followed in his parents’ military footsteps, is a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps.

“He’s been without a car for a few years, with training and everything,” Dave said.

“He was very good,” Dave said. “He struck a good balance between not being too pushy or aggressive but following up. The process here at Runde’s has been very positive.”

They said Dave Frazier was able to find a Sonic with a sunroof and the other options Alex wanted.

“It’s been hard because it’s not so easy for him to just pick up the phone,” Lisa said. “We’ve been emailing back and forth about the options he wants.”

Alex liked the size of the Sonic since it was similar to a Dodge Neon he used to own.

“It’s small but not so small that you feel squished,” Dave said. “It surprisingly has more room than you’d think.”

Thank you for your service, Alex, and enjoy your new Sonic!
