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.
It was another busy week for Mike as he counts the number of new deals made in the last seven days. We see a Tommy Milner Drivers Series Grand Sport delivered to a customer and a Black ZR1 gets an R8C Museum Delivery. One customer upgrades from a ’17 Z06 Convertible 8-speed auto to a ’19 Z06 Convertible with a 7-speed manual while a couple other White C7s are also delivered. For vintage car fans, check out the huge gallery of throwback and vintage Corvette photos that will keep you scrolling to your heart’s delight. Leave a message and let us know your favorite!

~Corvette Summer is officially in full swing. This past Thursday the 23rd was interesting…I wrote 4 C8 deals, 4 C7 Factory orders, delivered 1 Corvette on sight, 1 Corvette delivery at the Museum and 1 Corvette delivery via courtesy delivery in California. Now you know why I don’t answer the house phone at home! July 26th starts my 42nd year selling and enjoying Corvettes. *My Corvette dedicated web site shares a ton of info along with several "How To" videos. Share it with your fellow Corvette enthusiasts…you never know when it could be of some help. www.corvettefurman.com
~Below are some great pics of the Corvette that started my love of Corvettes and got me into Corvette sales. When and if I ever have a big garage I’d like to have a 1978 Indy Pace Car tucked away for nostalgic reasons.
~A few years back on an early Sunday morning I was crossing the Potomac on the General Jubal A Early Ferry in my 2016 Z06. Along comes an elderly fellow with his 1930 Ford that he bought in 1959 for $95! This car was all original and he truly does drive it to Church on Sundays!
~Some delivery pics and stories from this past week.
~Duane P. of Sebastopol, California sure knows how to order his very first Corvette. He called me up a few months ago and ordered a 2019 Grand Sport Cpe Tommy Milner Driver Series which is Elkhart Lake Blue and he received car #9! I had it drop shipped for Courtesy delivery to his local Chevrolet dealer in Davis, California. Equipment list: Auto transmission, 2LT Pkg, and the Tommy Milner C7R Driver’s Series Pkg which includes black wheels with red stripe, Jake logo center caps, Red calipers, silver dual length stripe, GS Heritage Pkg, Red fender stripes, and red seat belts. The word at the Corvette Plant is that the 4 drivers are in competition with each other to see which driver cars get produced more! Stay tuned. Congrats Duane on a stunning first Corvette.
~Evan R. of Cincinnati, Ohio got on my ZR1 list a long time ago and his patience paid off. We put together his Black 2019 Corvette ZR1 order 2 months ago and this past week he took delivery at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Equipment list: 7 Spd manual tr, 3ZR Pkg, Black Interior with Competition Seats, Red calipers, Satin Graphite Wheels, R8C Museum Delivery, ZTK Track Performance Pkg, and Red calipers. This 755 hp Corvette is a stunner!
~Carman P. of Bryceville, Florida called me 6 weeks ago as he follows my delivery posts. I gave him a sight unseen trade value for his 2017 Z06 Convt with 1,500 miles predicting it would have 2,300 miles by the time he arrived to pick up his 2019 Z06 Convt….only change is the 17 was an Auto trans and the new 19 has a 7spd manual transmission. Carman and his son Joe drove up the 750 miles to complete the deal and exchange Corvettes. Carman Factory ordered his new Arctic White Z06 Convt with: Navigation/PDR, 2LZ Pkg and the Black microfiber insert interior Pkg.
~Rick C. of Midland, Georgia called me up this week as he picked out a Torch Red Grand Sport off of my Corvette dedicated web site. We completed the deal in minutes and made an appt for him and his wife Robin to fly up from Georgia this week to take delivery. They arrived on time and had them in and out under 90 minutes. Ricks goal was to own a Corvette as it’s been his 42 year dream. Back in 1977 he bought a Firebird instead of the more expensive Corvette. Rick still owns that 77 Firebird and now he owns his very first Corvette. Equipment list: Two-tone Gray/Black Interior, Auto transmission, Red calipers, machine faced wheels, Navigation/PDR and 2LT Pkg. Fun was had by all!
~John and Terri S. of Magnolia, Delaware are frequent Patrons at the Corvettes of Carlisle Event every August. That’s where we first met. So when John wanted to purchase Corvette #7, his very first new Corvette…he looked at my corvette dedicated website and found his new Arctic White 2019 Z06. I gave him a sight unseen trade value for his 13,000 mile 2015 Z06 over the phone and the deal was made. Equipment list: 7 Spd manual, Black Interior, 2LZ Pkg, Navigation/PDR and much more.
~Manual A. of Rantoul, Illinois contacted me 8 weeks ago about placing a factory order for a Long Beach Red Z06 Convt. With Spice Red interior and Spice Red top. This past week he and his wife had the Red Carpet rolled out for them at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Manual is a super nice guy and he ordered a stunning combo. I enjoyed putting his order together! Equipment list: auto transmission, CF hood stinger stripe, chrome wheels, 3LZ PKG and much more!
~Bill N. of Plano, Texas found me on the various Corvette sites and called me 8 weeks ago to place his special order for a Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic 2019 Stingray Convt. With two-tone gray interior and Spice Red top.
Yesterday was delivery day at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY as he chose option code R8C. Equipment list includes 7 spd manual trans, magnetic select ride, performance exhaust, chrome wheels, two-tone seats,
