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.
This was a big week for Mike as he officially delivered his 4,000th Corvette. Mike says it was a milestone and not a goal, and we look forward to the many thousands of more Corvettes that he will deliver over the years. We’ll have more on this milestone delivery later this week! In addition to number 4,000, Mike shares the delivery photos of several Corvettes leading up that delivery, as well as a great collection of vintage and throwback photos sure to keep you scrolling.
Make sure to visit Mike’s facebook page for even more photos and videos of his new Corvette deliveries: CorvetteFurman.
~4,000 is more like a milestone than a goal. The thousands of friends that I have met along the way have been just as rewarding and more. My guess is that my 5,000th Corvette sold will come around mid 2022…did I say mid? as in mid-engine? Car and Driver this month has the supposed Mid Engine Corvette featured and all that does is sell magazines, not cars. After 40 years selling GM vehicles all I can tell you that you should wait until GM announces the vehicle.
~April 24th-27th I will be at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. The Corvette Bash is well worth attending so look me up and say hi. I’m sure our conversation will be about… Corvettes!
~You tube video from Fridays 4,000th delivery… well worth your 5 minutes and 17 seconds.
~Mike H. Of Boonsboro, MD is lucky #4,000 and Richard aka Mr. 3,000 even showed up for picture opportunities! Mike’s new 2018 GS Convt is a 2LT Pkg with Auto trans and the brushed alum wheels. The only Sebring Orange GS Convt with these wheels produced for the 2018 model year! Mike has bought 3 Corvettes from me since 2009 and this time he traded in his 2013 60th Anniv Convt. I brought my 67 Corvette to work for the very first time for the festivities.
Thanks to Adam’s Polishes for the special one of a kind gift bag!

And his wife of Lancaster, NY last visited Criswell 5/22/13 when his Corvette Club of Buffalo took a road trip and I hosted them for a tour and handed out 20 goodie bags to one and all. 8 weeks ago they ordered their 6th Corvette! Their very first was a brand new 1962! Their new 2019 Grand Sport is Torch Red with Red interior, Auto trans, 2LT Pkg and much more.
