~I hear the misc. stories about C7 sales and I shake my head…I’ve been as busy the last few months as I have ever been during the entire run of C7 sales. The 7th generation is a World Class Sports Car and for those of you that don’t know it probably have never taken a test drive. I implore you to drive one and then decide as you will come to the same conclusion that I have…and I’ve driven them all. I delivered 39 last month and I was off a week as I was fortunate enough to be at the Corvette Bash down in Bowling Green, KY. The tour of the Plant was eye-opening and the paint facility was incredible. What will the next Generation bring to the table? Engineering and Design changes are the norm as all great things either evolve or go by the wayside. The Corvette is here to stay and GM has made some major commitments…buckle up your seatbelt as we are all in for one heckuva ride.
~Brian C. of Latham, New York (up by Albany) had been on my ZR1 list for a long time so when his number came up he was thrilled. Back in 2014 he ordered a Yellow with Red interior corvette for museum Delivery so we had never met. His new ZR1 had to be ordered out of the Criswell CHEVROLET store in Thurmont as I filled their ZR1 allocations as well as the Gaithersburg store. Our Thurmont store is just a few miles below Gettysburg, PA. Thursday Brian took a short 1-hour flight and landed at 7am at BWI (Baltimore) and then took an Uber to Thurmont. I live 50 miles South of Thurmont so I left my house at 7am and arrived at 8am to check and make sure it was all cleaned and filled with gas for his 365-mile drive home. Thursday we met for the first time in 5 years that he has been my customer and we had a good time talking Corvettes…of course. Brian chose Race Yellow Tintcoat with Spice Red Interior. Equipment list: 7 Spd manual transmission, 3ZR Pkg, D30 color combo override, Red Calipers, Carbon Flash Wheels, Carbon flash painted mirrors and much more.
~So I had a really tough customer lined up after driving 50 miles South from our Thurmont Chevrolet store on Thursday…myself. I took a page out of Doug Fehan’s book and I Factory ordered a 2019 Stingray Corvette Cpe with 7 Spd manual transmission 6 weeks ago. It arrived last Tuesday when I was flying down to the Corvette Museum in KY to surprise my museum delivery customers from NC. So I had to wait until Thursday of this week to trade in my 2015 Impala and take delivery of what will be my every day Car…not just a car as the Corvette is one great ride. No sooner did I drive off the lot a thunderous rainstorm had me testing the Weather mode and my driving capabilities. Here is the Equipment list on my 19th Corvette that I have owned in the 41 years that I have been selling Corvettes. Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic with code 198 Black Interior which includes sueded inserts and microfiber on dash, console and door panels and gloss exposed carbon fiber instrument panel, Custom blue stitching, Competition Seats, CF badge Pkg, Performance exhaust, Polished Aluminum Motorsports Wheels, wheel locks, splash guards, 3LT Pkg and Red Seat Belts.
My 19 Corvettes broken down in numbers:
~9 of the 18 have been Blue. 2 Black, 1 White, 5 Red, 1 Orange,1 Yellow.
~15 of the 19 have been stick shift manual transmissions.
~8 of the 19 have been Convt’s.
19 total Corvettes that I have owned.
~Stacey T. splits his time between Katy, Texas and Minnesota. He owned a 2019 Grand Sport and the more he thought about it he chose the ZR1 allocation was the right way for him to take advantage of his Corvette enthusiasm…which runs deep! Last month when I was at Spring Mtn’s Track in Nevada he made a point to stop by to see me as he was there for his Corvette GS Owner’s school. So we had dinner together at The Clubhouse. Stacey Factory ordered his Long Beach Red/Kalahari ZR1 to be drop shipped at his local Chevrolet dealer in Katy, TX for Courtesy delivery. Equipment list: 7 Spd manual trans, chrome badges, chrome wheels and 3ZR Pkg.
