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.
Mike has a busy summer as he confirms he’ll be at the official reveal of the C8 Corvette on 7.18.19! Can’t wait to see his photos from that event! He also has another customer class at Spring Mountain coming up so make your plans to attend if you can! Here’s another great round of new Corvette deliveries including a Yellow Stingray Convertible with a manual transmission going to an 80-year-old woman who has a thing for manual Yellow convertibles! Mike also has a great selection of throwback and vintage photos for those who love to scroll! He reads your comments, so please tell him which is your favorite(s).

~It’s a given that July will be a busy month for me but in reality, every day is busy… As you can tell from my weekly delivery posts. I will be attending the next Generation reveal in Southern California July 18th/19th and then I fly across the State border July 20th-23rd to Pahrump, Nevada to share the Corvette owners school with 20 Corvette customers at Spring Mountain Race Track. Still, a few seats available so call Melinda or Donna at Spring Mountain (1 800 391 6891) to reserve your spot. We will have a blast and I will be fresh off attending the C8 reveal extravaganza. This is my 5th Corvette Generation change that I have sold Corvettes thru.
Thanks, Chesapeake Car Wash Staff
~Bertha “Bebe” M. of Lewes, Delaware has now owned 6 Corvettes..the last three were Yellow, Convt’s, all stick shifts and bought from me. Her 2011 Convt had 89,000 miles and was due for an overhaul so she called me to order herself a new 2019 Corvette Convt. In Racing Yellow with Black top and Black Interior. Bebe can handle a stick shift quite easily, not bad for 80 yrs young!! The front and rear cameras will be nice to have compared to her 2011 Vette. Besides the 7 spd manual transmission she ordered, Navigation/PDR and 2LT Pkg. It arrived just in time for her to drive to New England this week for her Granddaughter’s Graduation. Let’s hear it for Bebe!!!!
“This is my second vehicle purchase from Mike Furman within the past year. Of course, Mike is known as a rockstar in the world of Corvettes, but let me assure you, Mike is an amazing salesman, and an even better human being. Last June, I factory ordered a 2019 Corvette Grand Sport from Mike. It was my first Corvette purchase, but certainly will not be my last. That process was the smoothest car buying experience I’ve ever had. To that end, when I was considering leasing a new F-150 last month, I reached out to Mike and found out that Criswell doesn’t sell new Fords. My previous experience with Mike was so positive, I switched my focus back to Criswell brands. After driving past 4-5 Chevy dealerships to take my Grand Sport in for an oil change, I stopped by Mike’s desk just to say hey. I started talking about pickup trucks, and he encouraged me to see if there was anything I liked on the lot. I saw exactly what I wanted in a 2019 Silverado TrailBoss! Fast forward a few weeks to yesterday, and yet again, another great car buying experience with Mike. This guy really knows his craft. I drive past lots of dealerships to take my business to Mike and plan to continue to do so for the indefinite future. Kudos Mike!”
"Thank you for everything. We had a blast on the drive home and are thrilled with the new addition to our family.
I wish you and yours all the best."
"Other than transaction satisfaction, how was the rest of the experience? Were you kept "in the loop" regarding your factory order build status and codes? Did Mike let you know when your Corvette was built? Or, did you know when your Corvette was built and on its way to Criswell, or wherever you took delivery? Or was it more that you told Mike what you wanted and the next thing you know, you had your Corvette?"
So then several readers chimed in and I truly appreciate all the support especially what this customer wrote. He spent a lot of time and it didn’t go unnoticed.
"Let me tell you a few things, first I’ll answer your questions: If you want to be hand-held, he’ll hand hold you, If you want purchasing advice, he’ll give you advice. If you just want to order a car and be told when to pick it up, that’s your option as well.The entire experience of buying from Mike is the easiest car purchasing experience you will have. I’ve bought 3 Corvettes and a Tahoe from Mike, and with every purchase, he kept me in the loop on what was going on, and I didn’t even ask him to. He was incredibly flexible on delivery dates for me as well, as I had to drive down 220 miles each way to MD from NY/NJ to trade in my car(s) and pick up the new one. I’m a pain in the ass NY’er when it comes to making significant purchases like this, and the first vette I bought from Mike I took up a lot of his time that he happily spent with me to make the experience smooth, but it established mutual trust and the next 3 cars I bought from him were even easier.
Anyone can call you to tell you that "your car status changed from x to y today wahoooo!!" That’s easy. What Mike brings to the table is over 40+ years of experience, stellar reputation, and contacts within GM/Chevrolet at his disposal. For example, my ’17 GS developed paint problems between the fascia and front fendersa couple of months after I took delivery. I took it into my local Chevy dealership to get it fixed and they only offered to "touch it up". I called Mike to see if he could help and in under 24 hours he had spoken with one of his very senior contacts at the BG plant (!), opened a high priority service case with Chevy and had a brand new factory painted fascia on it’s way to my local dealer’s body shop for me. And when that one showed up damage from shipping, he had another one sent. I didn’t have to beg or make a big deal out of it, I simply called Mike and asked if he could help. And he took it from there. The service manager at my local place commented to me after the new fascia was installed " You must have some serious contacts within GM". He was shocked when I said nope, all of this was orchestrated by the guy I bought the car from. So if you want someone who will take the journey with you, but more importantly be there for post-sale support, you buy from Mike Furman."
