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 Delivery Dispatch, Mike takes a break from his daily routine of delivering new Corvettes to attend Corvettes at Carlisle. Mike took many photos with his customers, Corvette team members and long-time friends and many are shared below. There’s also a great section showing many of the Corvettes on display. As always, enjoy another great selection of throwbacks, barn finds and vintage Corvette photos.
Check out even more photos and videos of his deliveries on his facebook page, CorvetteFurman.
~Another Corvettes at Carlisle Show is in the books. Yes it’s still on today but I was on site from Wednesday afternoon thru Saturday 3:30pm. I couldn’t have possibly had more fun, met more Corvette enthusiasts or had better weather! The absolute best part for me were the many dozens of folks who went out of their way to come and thank me for all that I do for the Corvette hobby. I was blown away at the gratitude that was awarded me for these delivery posts, stories and throwback pics that I share each Sunday morning. It’s become a right of passage sort of speak sitting down at the computer on Sunday mornings at 5:30am (after I feed and walk the dog) and compiling my weekly pics and putting a story or two together. So enjoy todays pics from the Carlisle Event I just attended along with 100,000 thousand other people, and if you’ve never been…get there…it’s well worth it. I’m fortunate I only live 90 miles South of the Carlisle Fairgrounds but I met folks from as far away as Australia so clearly it was on their radar to attend the Worlds largest Corvette Event.
