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 is back from Corvettes at Carlisle and shares some great moments from the event that included 14 different 2020 Corvettes in attendance. Despite the hoopla of the next-generation Corvette, the C7 Corvettes are still in demand as we see Mike deliver some fantastic 2019’s to his customers. As always, a great collection of throwbacks and vintage Corvette photos is just a scroll away. Mike reads the comments so mention your favorite pics below!

~Just like that…the Corvettes at Carlisle Event is here and gone. I am fortunate that Carlisle, PA is only 90 miles North of Criswell as I get to attend the greatest Corvette Event in the world each year. I’ve been attending many Carlisle events since 1978 and each year gets better and better. The C8, 2020 Corvette mid-engine was clearly the star of this year’s event as well it should be. All Corvette events have one common theme even greater than the cars that show up…people. Long-lasting friendships are formed and that bond picks up seamlessly from event to event. I posted video’s and many pictures on my Corvette Furman Facebook page so check them out when you have time.
~25th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum Caravan is this week. I will be at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY on Wednesday between 11am-4pm and look forward to spending time with everyone.
**My very first Corvette Black Book was gifted to me by Gary Konner. It got destroyed in Hurrican Sandy back in 2012. This week my friend Jim B of PA gave me a box of old literature and in it was the 1978 Black Book just like I had lost so many years ago.
Below are some C8 pics and friends from the Carlisle event.
Some 2019 Corvette deliveries before I left the office on Tuesday…
~Michael O. of Naples, Florida called me 8 weeks ago to place his special order for a Torch Red 2019 Grand Sport coupe to be delivered thru the R8C National Corvette Museum program. This past Saturday Michael had the red carpet rolled out for his delivery. Equipment list: 7 spd manual transmission, Black Competition seats with microfiber inserts, body-color exterior vents, red calipers, performance air intake, navigation/ PDR, Z07 ultimate performance pkg and more!
~Charles B. of Beverly Hills, California is shown here with the courtesy delivering dealer in Huntington Beach, California. I drop shipped his new Long Beach Red 2019 Grand Sport Convt. that he factory ordered. I’m sure Charles will drop the top and shift the 7spd manual of his Corvette early and often!
~Greg B. of Pine, Colorado followed in his Fathers footsteps as his Dad bought a 2015 Corvette from me. Last week Greg looked at my inventory online and saw I had just the right Black Grand Sport being built and shipped. Greg flew in this weekend to visit his mother and came to Criswell Monday morning to sign up. Plycar trucking will take it from here and ship it to his home in Colorado. Equipment list: Red seats, 1LT pkg, CF badge pkg, 7 Spd manual trans, red calipers, and black wheels.
~Don B. of Jamesville, NY bought his 5th Corvette from me two years ago and this past week he picked up #6. Don had factory ordered his new Arctic White 2019 Stingray cpe 7 weeks ago after I gave him a sight-unseen trade-in value for his 2017 Convt Corvette. Don drove down 360 miles last night and stayed close by and arrived bright and early. Don gifted me a book on NCAA College Wrestling history as he knows I wrestled Division 1 for Univ of Maryland many decades ago. Equipment list: 7 spd manual transmission, red calipers, Red seats, performance exhaust, and 2LT pkg.
~Scott and Diana T. of Laurel, M called me up the other day as they were seeking a 2019 Grand Sport. I gave them a sight-unseen trade value on their low mileage 2017 Stingray and the deal was made. They came in this past week to pick up a very rare Admiral Blue Grand Sport with the two-tone gray and black microfiber insert interior. This is Scott’s 6th Corvette! Equipment list: Auto transmission, navigation/PDR and 2LT pkg.
