Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for Week of June 7th


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.

In this week’s dispatch, Mike takes a Ferrari on trade-in for a Corvette Z06 and a Corvette birthday party is thrown. One of Mike’s customer’s gives his own dispatch – from Spring Mountain! And finally, Mike gives a salute to the Corvette Racing team who is traveling to France for next weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.

This past week was a short week for me as I was out of the office for a few days…which means this coming week will be heavy on deliveries.

~Rick and his wife of Gaithersburg, MD are big advocates for RT 66 and they decided to sell their C5 and order a new Stingray Cpe. Arctic White with Adrenaline Red interior and 7spd manual was just the ticket. His wife threw him a Corvette birthday party a few days before he took delivery on Thursday. His new Stingray came in Wednesday and I was off Thursday thru Sunday but I knew Rick was itching to ride so I scheduled his delivery early Thursday and took off from there.

~Perry L of Richmond, VA heard of me on the Forums and after he placed his order for a Stingray he found out that his first cousin is a friend of mine. Small world. Perry ordered Daytona Sunrise Orange with 3LT Brownstone interior, 8spd paddle shift Auto trans, CF Badge pkg,Black wheels, ZF1 pkg and much more. He drove the long way home and enjoyed every second of driving his very first Corvette.

~Carl S of Greenbelt, MD was referred in to me by his Corvette Club and he came in and traded his beloved 2012 GS Centennial edition for a new Shark Gray 7spd Stingray cpe. Carl couldn’t believe how much he liked the Stingray so quickly. He took it right off the showroom floor to his home. I text pics to his wife of the two side by side.

~My Stingray Corvette Customer Chris M wrote me the following after he took my advice for attending Spring Mountain Race Track since Chevrolet is paying 60% of the cost when you purchase a new Stingray or Z06. Here are his words/pics.

"Hi Mike, just a quick note to let you know I went to the Corvette performance driving program at Spring Mountain this week upon your recommendation. Just as you suggested it would be, I found it a fun, challenging, and informative program and learned a lot about the car that I had not discovered on my own during the past year of driving the Stingray. As you know, I am a competitive athlete and competitive shooter, and I saw a lot of parallels between performance shooting and performance driving. Once you have mastered the fundamentals, it is all about being smooth. The emphasis on momentum management and balancing the car was really useful — I could really feel the difference when applying the skills as taught, and there were several concepts new to me, such as throttle steering. They have a fine group of instructors out there, and the infrastructure is really impressive. Anyway, thanks again for steering me in a positive direction. " – With appreciation, Chris M.

~My nod to Lemans since this is the week of the Big Race. I was fortunate enough to win twice a National Chevrolet Corvette sales contest that GM had back in 2011 and 2012. I spent time with Doug Fehan and his two teams of Corvette drivers, Mark Reuss, Ron Fellow’s and all the other luminaries from Chevrolet. Lemans is THE Race in Europe and I highly recommend you put this event on your Bucket list. Below is a picture from the Team Corvette Pits at Lemans.
