Our friend Mike Furman at Criswell Corvette gave us some info on a great fundraiser to help fight cancer, but he also wanted to tell us why this time it’s personal. Read on to find out how you can help the fight against cancer through The Patty Pollatos Fund and maybe win a new 2014 Corvette Stingray in the process.

Long time national Corvette seller Mike Furman not only sells a lot of Corvettes (he’s currently over 3,100 and counting in his lifetime), but he has owned a lot of Corvettes personally as well. He recently sold his low mile 1992 Quasar Blue C4 to make room for another blue Corvette – a 2014 Corvette Stingray.
This will be Mike’s 14th Corvette that he has personally owned and as he told us, you can expect to see it – and him – on the road soon!

During the National Corvette Museum’s Bash last month, we had the opportunity to speak to Mike Furman of Criswell Corvette. Mike has sold an astounding 3,100 Corvettes over his professional sales career and we liken him to be a modern day Bob Wingate. Mike is one of the star sales reps on the Corvette Forum and proves time and again that he will go the extra mile to ensure that your Corvette buying experience is as positive as it can be.

When Chevrolet first announced there would be a special Premiere Edition of the Corvette Stingray Coupe back in June 2013, no one was certain whether or not they would also be offering the special limited edition Stingray as a Convertible. But that didn’t stop interested parties from contacting dealers and saying “I want it”. Sure enough, once the Stingray Convertibles started production, Chevrolet announced that 550 Convertible Premiere Editions in Lime Rock Green would be produced.
Criswell Corvette’s Mike Furman got that call from Bob D. in Annapolis, MD about putting a deposit down on a Stingray Convertible Premiere Edition just after the Coupe was announced and this week he was able to take the Lime Rock Green Corvette Stingray home.

Congratulations to our friend and CorvetteBlogger sponsor Mike Furman of Criswell Corvette who earlier this month delivered his 3,000th Corvette to a customer. Mike’s first Corvette sale goes all the way back to July 26, 1978 when he sold a 1978 Corvette to Cassius De la Victoria. Some 426 months later, Mike delivered his 3,000th Corvette to a customer from Potomac, MD.

Mike Furman of Criswell Corvette sent us a very cool video showing the arrival of the 2014 Corvette Stingrays to his dealership in Gaithersburg, MD. His first two cars received are a Black Stingray and a Lime Rock Green Stingray. In another post on the forum, we read that the black Corvette Stingray is already on its way to a customer on the west coast who will take delivery at a Chevy dealership in Oregon.

Chevrolet wants its dealers to know the new 2014 Corvette Stingray inside and out so they created the Stingray Dealer Sales Academy, a three day mini-camp for Corvette sellers to experience the 2014 Corvette Stingray in the classroom and on the track.
The Stingray Academy is being held out at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, NV. Corvette sales professional Mike Furman @ Criswell Corvette in Gaithersburg, MD attended the school earlier this week and he provides us with pictures and his review of the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Mike Furman is one lucky guy.
Many kids at the age of 17 have no idea what they want to do with their lives. But Mike knew what he was going to do.
On July 26, 1978 he sold his first Corvette. A mere 420 months or 12,775 days have gone by since then and now he’s one of the top Corvette sellers in the Country. By the end of the year, Mike will have completed his 3,000th Corvette sale!
