Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for Week of August 16th

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 hits the road and takes in a Corvette show as well as reuniting with his old wrestling coach for a golf outing. Then it was back to work where he delivers new Corvette Stingrays, Z06s and a couple of other vehicles not wearing the crossed flags.

[Hot or NOT] Is Painting Your Michelin’s a Cool Mod for Corvette Owners?


Corvettes and white letter tires go hand and hand. Like many classic Corvette owners, my 1966 Corvette Sting Ray is wearing a set of white letter BF Goodrich Radial T/As. I think it gives it that ‘period’ look which is a bit racier in my opinion than going with a traditional white wall tire.

So when we found this Corvette Z06 with the painted Michelin’s, I feel like I get the look that the owner was trying to convey.

Last week at the GM Heritage Center, Detroit resident George Talley got the first look at his restored 1979 Corvette after General Motors graciously went to work on the car for the veteran in advance of this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

The Corvette will be part of Chevrolet’s display at the Woodward Dream Cruise, which is officially billed as the world’s largest automotive event.

Corvettes on Woodward was held Wednesday in Detroit and featured around 500 Corvettes who gather off of Detroit’s Woodward Avenue before making the “Drive to End Hunger” to drop off food donations at the the Open Hands Food Pantry in Royal Oak. The event is organized by our friend Larry Courtney who did another outstanding job in putting this event together.

Thanks to our friends at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering we have a fantastic photo gallery of the Corvettes who were in attendance.

Back when I was in high school, we had an FFA teacher (that’s Future Farmers of America for you city folks) who made the same lame joke every year during the annual awards ceremony when presenting his outstanding student. He’d always say something to the effect of “there aren’t any students out standing in my field!”

That joke immediately crossed my mind when I saw this “outstanding” Black Corvette Stingray which somehow ended up in a soybean field in Missouri.

We featured the exploits of Krider Racing and their Corvette ‘Z06Life’ earlier this year when it competed and won the opening round of the 2015 Optima Batteries Ultimate Street Car Invitational.

The team has been involved in a number of racing events this year from hitting 180 mph at the Mojave Mile to a podium finish at the 25 Hours of ThunderHill, and now you can add Northern California’s Hoopa Hillclimb to the list.

Original Low Mile 1969 Corvette L88 to be Offered in Monterey

This unrestored 1969 Corvette L88 coupe will make you think it’s the ’60s again!

How many 46-year-old cars do you know that have just 2,576 miles showing on the odometer, and furthermore how many do you know that have the legendary 427/430 L88 engine lurking under their hood?

But that’s the story behind this impressive time-capsule of a Corvette that will be auctioned off at the Rick Cole Monterey Auction Aug. 13-15 at the Marriott Hotel near Fisherman’s Wharf.

Ever since the sinkhole swallowed eight Corvettes in February 2014, we’ve been following the progress of the National Corvette Museum’s efforts to retrieve the lost cars and then restore the Skydome back to normal. While the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the Skydome is planned for the 21st Anniversary Celebration next month, the Museum has recently opened up the area to the public.

So it’s only fitting that following the team’s 8th class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the racing team and drivers gathered in Detroit to celebrate with Corvette Team members who design, engineer and build our Corvettes.
