Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for Week of July 5th


Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top Corvette seller.

In this week’s dispatch, Mike gets to check out Donald Trump’s new $500,000 limo which was on the same Plycon auto transport as the Stingray going to one of his customers. A previous customer trades a black 2015 base Stingray for a Shark Gray 2015 Z51 Stingray coupe with some additional options, and another customer gets a first look at his new Corvette while its traveling down the production line in Bowling Green.

Brian W of Elk Grove, California factory ordered his 2015 Stingray and little did he realize the cool story that would go along with the experience. Brian had his Stingray built and even ordered the Photo Album from the Corvette Museum to have as a great keepsake. His Arctic White Stingray arrives at Criswell and we Fed Ex the paperwork back and forth…next on the agenda is for Plycon Trucking to pick it up in their enclosed trailer to ship West. So a few nights ago the Plycon truck pulls up and the Driver said he had to pull off Donald Trump’s new Rolls Royce stretch Limo (MSRP of $507,000!) before putting the new Stingray on the truck. Now I have used Plycon Trucking for over 6 years approx 10+ times per month and have seen some really amazing cargo…but this is the first time I’ve heard of a Rolls Royce being removed to fit a new Corvette!! I am sure the logical explanation is that Trump’s place was the next stop so it would be first off… Either way enjoy the pictures.

~ Rick J of Arnold, MD is one of the coolest guys I know. Earlier in the model year he purchased a new Black ’15 Stingray Cpe…along the way he felt the itch to upgrade many features but before he did he wanted to explore the cost difference to trade up to a Z51 with some of the goodies he was thinking about. He originally started this process with his Father in mind and the more he looked over the numbers the more he thought it could work for him. I had just got in a ’15 Shark Gray Z51 cpe with Black wheels, Black mirrors and spoiler along with Black badging….So this past week he made the switch and is thrilled that he did.
