We got a great new Corvette owner story from Corvette sales specialist Mike Furman at Criswell Corvette. Mike shared with us a note he received from Air Force Colonel Gordy “Fuze” Dexter, a combat pilot with 200 missions under his belt who has also won Top Gun 17 times. Mike was able to put Gordy into a Cyber Gray 2013 Corvette 427 and let’s just say the Colonel is impressed!
According to Mike, Gordy Dexter called him out of the blue in November to special order a 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible. Here is his note to Mike after he drove his new Corvette home through Washington DC traffic:
“I wanted to say THANK YOU for the great care and fun time of picking up the 427. The car just looks stunning. It looks better than my best imagination. The drive home was in some nasty traffic but by the time I got home, I was used to the car. I tried out the car in both tour and sport mode and it was extremely fun.
Thank you for the video and pictures. Lori was impressed and she liked the video. She is sending it to family members too. I also appreciate the car polish, thank you very much Mike. I will use it weekend after next and take pictures. The car is a brute, I love it. The sound brought back memories of my old Chevelle 396 that had 450 hp. This is going to be my best Corvette experience. Lori and I tooled around last night together after I got home. She was impressed too. She said the car was manly. I said “hell yes woman”. That is why it is America’s Sports Car.
The ride home was busy in heavy stop and go traffic. It is 56 miles from my house to your dealership. After the traffic cleared I had some good fun driving the car. Lots of people were staring and wondering what American monster I was driving. This car is just stunning. I got home today and went into the garage to check out the prized car. Boy it sure puts a smile on my face. The engine is just amazing. I love hearing it roar after 3500 RPMs. Even Lori liked the sound. Normally she is not into speed and acceleration but I was working on her to appreciate good ole American power. This car rocks!!!!! Mike this was the best buying experience I have ever had. Thanks Bro!!”
Talk to you again soon.
Gordy “Fuze” Dexter…..Fuze is my Fighter Pilot Callsign. We don’t get to pick our C/S, it is voted-on and assigned by the Squadron members.
For a guy that’s use to driving something really fast, you can really feel his excitement and pride when he describes his new 427 Convertible. Remember that feeling of going out to the garage and just staring your new Corvette? For those that don’t own a Corvette, let’s just say it’s a pretty cool feeling. Congratulations “Fuze” and thanks once again for your service!
