Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays, Grand Sports, Z06s and ZR1s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top individual Corvette seller.
In this week’s post, Mike shares the deliveries of several out of town customers. A new Elkhart Lake Blue Corvette was sold to a customer in California who flew to the east coast to pick up their car and are driving it cross country back home. Sounds like a great road trip!! A Florida customer had his new Grand Sport shipped directly to his door in Miami as did a customer in Oklahoma who took delivery of a new Elkhart Lake Blue Z06. Mike also has a great collection of vintage and throwback photos so get scrolling and swiping now!

~I’m not sure what triggered it but I must have received 25 emails this week asking pretty much the same question…What’s the most Corvettes that I have delivered in a month? The answer is *61 that I got credited with in the month of October 2013…but with a * just like Roger Maris…as my General Sales Manager at the time took 5 of my Corvette deliveries that were getting delivered on Oct 1st and reported them to Chevrolet for Sept 30th to pump up September’s numbers…or else it would have been 66. I recently found my monthly delivery notes which confirmed what I had remembered… 486 in a year.
~Now on to some really exciting news…Todd of Spring Mountain and I have been talking about doing a Furman customer ZR1 Corvette driving experience and this past Friday morning we chose the dates of March 11th/12th 2019. So I get to meet up with 12 of my ZR1 customers and experience the ZR1 driving school at Ron Fellows Spring Mountain Race Track in Pahrump, Nevada. I’ve been there three times in the last year but this will be my first time with a ZR1 class of my clients. I believe the session sold out on Friday. So stay tuned for March as I will have some great pictures and I will try to put in to words how great this Corvette event truly is.
~LONG Distance award goes to Gary and Diane T. of Morgan Hill, California…they could have ordered their new 2019 GS Z07 Corvette over the phone but this is Gary’s Dream "first"Corvette so he and his wife made an appt months ago to fly in and see what Elkhart Lake Blue looks like in person…they flew in Friday, ordered their new Corvette Saturday and are now in route flying back to California today. Two of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet and I’m certainly glad they visited me from 2,850 miles away!
~Len B. Of Aventura, Florida heard of me thru the internet so he placed his Factory order with me 7 weeks ago. We did all paperwork thru Fed Ex and his new 2019 Race Yellow Corvette Grand Sport Convt Has been enclosed shipped South to his Miami home. I spoke with him yesterday and he is over the moon happy with his new Corvette. Equipment list includes: Kalahari micro fiber seat insert interior, yellow calipers, 7 Spd manual trans, 2LT Pkg, and Kalahari top.
~John M. Of Miami, Oklahoma gave me a call 7 weeks ago as he had heard about me thru various Corvette channels. John placed his factory order for an Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic 2019 Z06 Cpe with Jet Black interior. Equipment list includes: Visible CF hood insert, VIsible CF ground effects, chrome badge Pkg, CF Instrument panel, yellow calipers, 7 spd manual transmission, 10 spoke Blade Pearl Wheels, Nav/PDR, Z06 cargo mat, 2LZ Pkg and the exposed carbon fiber rear spoiler option code 5V5.
All the paperwork was completed via Fed Ex and Plycar Trucking shipped it to John’s home in Oklahoma. Received and email yesterday and John was gushing at how great his new Corvette looks with the options he chose.
~Gene And Janet F. Of Monteagle, Tennessee called me two weeks ago and picked out of stock this Admiral Blue 2019 Corvette Stingray Convt. This is Gene’s 3rd Corvette. Back in 2007 he watched his C6 get built(see pic). This 19 Stingray Convt has two tone Gray/Black interior with black top, Auto transmission, Performance exhaust, 2LT Pkg, Z51 spoiler and the ultra cool Motorsports Polished aluminum wheels. Gene and Janet flew in Monday eve and stayed outside Baltimore with their daughter and drove home, 650 happy miles. We all had fun on delivery day.
Gene watched his C6 get built.
Gene made the model below when he was a youngster…and now he owns his full size Blue Corvette Convt!
~Steven P. Of Leesburg, Virginia last ordered a White 2015 Corvette from me and this time Steve placed his order for a 2019 Silver Z06 Convt! Wednesday afternoon his new Corvette arrived and Thursday at 11am he was at Criswell and ready to drive it home across the Potomac River. Steve ordered his Silver Z06 with Adrenaline Red interior, Black top, dual black racing stripes, Black Wheels, Auto transmission, CF painted mirrors and much more. In 3 years I sense there will be a C8 Factory order!
~Paul C. Of West Lafayette, Indiana had read about me on the various Forums and really wanted to meet with me in person and see my inventory at Criswell. 8 weeks ago he got in his vehicle and drove 650 miles to Maryland and we walked our 100+ Corvette inventory and in the end we spec’d out together his 2019 Corvette Grand Sport Cpe order for Corvette Museum delivery in Bowling Green, Kentucky…which occurred Friday!! Paul chose Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic with Spice Red interior which I think looks Dynamite! Equipment list: Visible Carbon fiber hood insert, Visible carbon fiber roof panel, 7 spd manual transmission, chrome wheels, CF painted mirrors, Z07 Performance Pkg and 3LT Pkg. This Corvette is a Show all in itself.

~Some others that left the yard…Rich and Amy C. Of Hagerstown, MD have been buying Corvettes and trucks from me since 2005. Just a few months ago they took delivery of a new Orange Grand Sport Cpe…which started the wheels in motion for an Orange JEep Wrangler. So Amy picked out the options and the order was placed. This past week they traded in their 2017 Tahoe and drove home their new 2018 Wrangler unlimited Sahara.
~Mark G. Of NorthEast, Maryland was referred to me by a Corvette customer in Delaware. Mark called me up 7 weeks ago to place his Factory order for a 2019 ZL1 Camaro Cpe with close 650HP! Red Hot paint with Black interior and red accents. 10 spd Auto transmission and Navigation were the options Mark chose. Marks first new car was a 1985 Camaro IROC Z! Check out the pics.
