You never know what you might find on Craigslist.

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.
Mike entertains us this week with a number of new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s delivered to customers. One of the deliveries was for a 2016 Corvette Z06 with the Admiral Blue exterior.

It’s the last Friday of May and that means it’s time to celebrate Black Friday! Here’s a Corvette photo gallery featuring 46 black Corvettes!
The Mecum Auctions travelling road show stopped in Indianapolis, Indiana last weekend for Dana Mecum’s 29th annual Original Spring Classic.

Total sales were just under $49,000,000 and that number will probably top $50M once all the Bid Goes On activity wraps up.
