Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for oct 6th


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 his third visit of the year to Spring Mountain’s Ron Fellows Performance Driving School and we were surprised to hear one the participants was a figure from Mike’s past. It’s another short week for the Corvette seller but he does provide a few deliveries that include a Shadow Gray Grand Sport and a Torch Red Z06. He’ll be out next week for a well-deserved break so enjoy the collection of throwbacks and vintage Corvette photos assembled for today’s post. Do you have a favorite picture from this week? Mike reads the comments so mention your favorite pics below!

~I just returned yesterday late afternoon from Ron Fellows Spring Mtn Race Track that I attended for the third time this year with a full class of my Corvette customers. What a blast as always. Enjoy the pics below. C8 Convt and C8R were revealed, certainly exciting. The strike ends would be even better news.

*I’m on Vacation October 9th-14th. No delivery post next Sunday.

~Gary Konner and I hadn’t seen each other in 30 years! Gary was my boss at Malcolm Konner Auto back in the ’80s. Gary has been following me on my Corvette Furman Facebook Page for the last 5 years and he touched base a few years ago. This week he and his son Malcolm decided to attend (For Malcolm’s upcoming 30th birthday) my Corvette Furman Owners School at Ron Fellows Spring Mountain Race Track in Pahrump, NV. I last saw Gary’s son Malcolm when he was 6mos old. Happy 30 birthday Malcolm…December 15th.

Below pic is from Winter 1986. A fellow salesman challenged me to a wrestling match so Gary and the whole dealership came to the local high school to watch. (The match lasted three seconds as I threw him and he broke a rib)

~My third Corvette Furman owners school at Spring Mountain Race track this year is in the books. This is my 5th year hosting groups of my customers at Ron Fellows Spring Mtn Race Track in Pahrump, Nevada. Everyone had a blast and FUN was had by all that attended…even the instructors! The weather in Pahrump, Nevada was absolutely perfect. Rick Malone, Richie Hearn and the rest of the staff did a phenomenal job instructing students of all capabilities. Thank you to all 20 of my Corvette clients and spouses that took time out of their busy lives to check off this bucket list item with my Corvette Furman driving class this week.

~I was walking through our Service Lane the last week and I stopped in my tracks when I saw this 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette Convt.

~*One of my all-time favorite delivery stories came to mind. Back in the Winter of 2002/2003 a 50 ish yr old woman walked into the Chevrolet dealership I was running and she had a request with a story/twist. Her 30th wedding anniversary was coming up and her husband was turning 50…For the last 25 years, they had been eating Saturday night dinner at the same restaurant and served by the same waitress. Every single Saturday night after dinner the waitress would ask him if he needed anything else before handing him the check…and her husband always had the same response..” yea, keys to a brand new Corvette, please! ” So the wife knew the 50th Anniversary Corvette Convt was incredibly difficult to get but she had heard I was pretty good with acquiring/ selling Corvettes, neither of them had ever owned a Corvette. So the deal was made and I had to buy/ dealer exchange one from a Chevrolet dealer in South Dakota! She made the purchase and at the end of the day on a Saturday she parked it behind their favorite local restaurant. Like clockwork, the waitress comes over at the end of the evening and he asks for the ”bill and keys to his brand new Corvette!” So the waitress hands him the Corvette keys and the wife said” Happy Anniversary and Birthday!” I really wish I had been there to witness the husband’s jaw hit the proverbial ground!
Truly one of my all-time favorite delivery experiences!!

~I was only in the office a day and a half last week before I left but here are a few deliveries that I can post.

~Joe and Nancy F. of Sherrills Ford, North Carolina and I go back 50 years! Joe and his family moved to my hometown, Montvale, NJ when I was a kid. Joe owned his own gas station and repair shop and I started as a 17-year-old bringing my Musclecars to him as he was a great mechanic. Fast forward to two years ago Joe and I ran into each other at Corvettes of Carlisle. We hadn’t seen each other since 1988. Recently Joe called me up looking for a new Corvette and he had seen a Shadow Gray 2019 Grand Sport Convt. in my inventory. So we made a deal and completed the Fed Ex process and Plycar trucking enclosed shipped it to his North Carolina home. Equipment list: Auto transmission, 2LT pkg, Gray interior, Gray top, Chrome wheels, red calipers, Navigation /PDR and much more!

~David G. of The Colony, Texas contacted me last week as he had seen a Torch Red 2019 Z06 in my inventory that was just right for him. He called and we made a deal in no time flat. I got a quote from Plycar Trucking to ship enclosed trailer from Criswell to his Texas home. We completed the paperwork/payment process via Fed Ex and now it’s ready to be shipped. Equipment list: Auto transmission, 10 spoke blade pearl wheels, Navigation /PDR, 2LZ pkg and red seat belts.

  1. Wish I had gone to Criswell to buy my new 2018 Torch Red 3LZ Z06 instead of the absolute worst dealership Ourisman Chevrolet of Rockville……
    They chipped the paint on new car prep (before and after pictures) along with air bubble pockets under the leather wrapped dash (had to have replaced at another dealership, under warranty) and still trying to get them to contact Sirius XM to give me my “free” service for 1 year with the purcase of a 2LZ/3LZ Z06…..which Sirius is charging me for because Ourisman manager refuses to contact Sirius and says my salesman (who has since moved to another dealership) is responsible for correcting the problem.
    I should have NEVER left the lot with the car but it was the only one I could find in a 4 state area.
    Absolutely the worst dealership to sell Corvettes and Chevrolet would be wise to remove their privilege to do so…….
    I actually have video of them almost wrecking my car leaving the showroom….. the dealership employee actually missed the door frame on drivers side backing out of showroom….he stopped just in time to hand fold the drivers mirror in before knocking it off on the door frame….he had over 6 feet on the passenger side to clear the door frames…….
    Then when I took the car to another Ourisman dealership closer to my house they refused to repair the paint chips and said “I have to take it back to where I purchased the car to have it repaired” even though it’s the same company.
    They gave me some lame excuse about “ownership group” etc.
    I’m sure the factory workers who built a fantastic car when mine rolled off the assembly line and GM executives should be seriously concerned that this is how one of their largest mid Atlantic dealers sells and mistreats their loyal customers.

  2. Mike, Put me down for the Malcolm Konner Commemorative Special Edition Corvette from 1986 as my favorite photo in this batch! Keep up the good work! Steve Reese
