Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for July 16th


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

In this week’s dispatch, Mike talks a little about the friendships he has made over the 40 years of selling Corvettes. It was a good week for Corvette deliveries as we see several local deliveries at Criswell and Mike also shows what these customers were trading in. As always, a great collection of throwbacks, barn finds and vintage pics are featured.

Check out even more photos and videos of his deliveries on his facebook page, CorvetteFurman.

~I had this conversation the other day with John from Oregon, basically I stated that the friends that I have met thru the Corvette hobby has meant more to me then any of the 18 Corvettes that I have owned. Life takes twists and turns and you can go for a ride in your Corvette to clear the mind as I often do but the Corvette people that I have met along the way keeps my glass full and thankful for it. I don’t go a week without random acts of kindness being sent my way…Jeff H. of NY picked up a new Corvette Convt from me a few weeks ago and he mailed me a gift box of Snyders Pretzels so large it may be enough for a Year. Many customers still ask about my son, July 29th marks 5 years since he was hit by a speeding car. Our lives were changed forever but he is forging ahead each and every day. His strength and our friends along with the Corvette community has helped me handle the 2nd worst phone call a parent could ever receive.

~Moving on, I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer heat. Travel safe and enjoy the Pictures and stories. *Someone said the other day they thought I had a "Google memory" for Corvette stuff…thought that was pretty funny…but you do something that you love for nearly 40 years now and Corvette stuff becomes ingrained in you.

~Vicky and Terri of Annapolis, Md called me this week and said it’s time to trade the 4,300 mile ’13 427 Convt that they had bought from me. They have now bought 3 Corvettes and 1 Colorado from me since 2012. I arrived Saturday at 6:45am like most Saturdays as I knew they would be early …they had it narrowed down between two Z06’s. They chose wisely before we even opened up at 9am having themselves arrived at 7:30am. A few weeks ago I gave them a sight unseen value for their 427 Convt and Saturday they drove away in their new 2017 Z06 Cpe in Black with Two tone Red/black microfiber insert seats with microfiber steering wheel, Red seat belts, Auto trans, spectra gray wheels with silver groove, Nav/PDR, 2LZ Pkg and much more!! This Corvette pops. It will share garage space with their C3 and 25th Anniversary 2012 Callaway Corvette. Here in their own words is the text I received from them last night…"We just got home, LOVE the C7 Z06!!! Everything you said about it was right on target. Very impressive to drive. Thank you for making the experience so easy and special" Vicky and Terri …knowing these two gals I am sure they took the long way home!!

~James R. Of Commack, NY factory ordered his 2nd Red Corvette from me in late May and I gave him a sight unseen trade value on his 12,000 mile 2014 Corvette Z51. This week he and his buddy Eddie drove 260 miles down to Maryland to pick up his new 2018 Corvette Grand Sport Cpe, Jim’s 8th Corvette!! His new 2018 Grand Sport has Auto trans, 1LT Pkg, CF Badge Pkg, Black wheels, red calipers which go great with the Torch Red paint! Next it’s Eddie’s turn to trade his Z51 for a Grand Sport.

~Carl F. Of Earlysville, Virginia called me 7 weeks ago to factory order a 2018 Z06 Cpe and trade in his Laguna Blue 2016 Stingray Z51 Cpe. Carl has followed me on the Forums and chose to order an 18 Z06 in Admiral Blue with Black Comp seats with microfiber inserts, body color dual roof Pkg, Auto trans, Z06 Appearance Pkg, chrome wheels, Red seat belts, red stitching and 3LZ Pkg. This Corvette is stunning and Carl can’t wait to experience his new Z06 and the extra 190HP! I sense some spirited driving in his future.

  1. Enjoy the posts by Mike Furman. The sales, news and lifestyles of Corvette owners is wonderful.
    One of the pictures shown recently of the St Louis body shop was great and keeper for me.
    Chevrolet Motor Car division of GM Co need salesman like Mike Furman and Rick Conti selling Corvette. Most salesman do not have a clue about the Chevrolet Corvette.
    I have seen many Corvette’s assembled at Bowling Green Kentucky and watched this fabulous Corvette go to world class quality over the years.
    Currently owning number six.
