~Since 2020 is a Leap Year my "Guess" is that Feb 29th is when the C8’s will start rolling away from the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, KY. It seems that everyone wants me to "Guess" as to when their allocation will come up or when their C8 will be built so I may as well throw a "guess " out there as to when the first C8 truckloads exit Bowling Green and on to the highways of America. I can’t impress everyone enough that this process has literally just begun, and that the C8 is so well worth the wait. Now comes the rumor mill on all things considered "Future Corvette", higher horsepower as I call it as there is no telling what it will be called… a Z06, ZR1 or Zora for that matter. Speaking of Zora Duntov, I spent some time with him between the Summers of 1978 and 1990 at all the Malcolm Konner Corvette shows and his stock response was "Rumors sell magazines, not cars!"

~Great news out of Bowling Green this week…Public Corvette Plant Tours to resume Spring 2020. I was fortunate enough to take a tour of the Corvette plant in April 2019 and the new paint facility and the process is state of the art amazing!

Great quote from Dec 2019 Car and Driver…"Make no mistake. If you want to haul ass down a writhing piece of asphalt, this car (C8) will do it at astounding velocities" R Ceppos.

~Get ready for the C8 to be on every car magazine cover!

~Meanwhile, The final C7 was built this past Thursday, Nov 14th, 2019. I still have two C7 Corvette truckloads headed to Criswell and then that will be it. Another Corvette generation of cars completed. The C8 will be the 5th generation change that I have sold Corvettes thru and yes I sold C3’s…although the "C" or generation reference didn’t start until 1996 when the 4th Generation was being completed and the Corvette big wigs announced that the 1997 Corvette or 5th Generation will be on the lots in 1997.**The last car (a Black 2019 Z06 donated by GM) was auctioned off by Barrett Jackson last June in support of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The foundation helps pay off mortgages for the families of first responders that were killed in the line of duty and builds "mortgage-free, accessible smart homes" for injured service members. The winning bid was $2.7 million.

But the 2nd to the last car? That Corvette will call the National Corvette Museum home. The car is the last Stingray to be built and was purchased by Museum Lifetime Member and supporter Ivan Schrodt. Ivan will take delivery of the Corvette next Wednesday, November 20 at 2pm CT, and will then hand the keys over to the Museum in a ceremony on Corvette Boulevard.

The Bowling Green plant will now be shut down for retooling. C8 production is scheduled to begin February 3rd, 2020

~I was able to capture some deliveries this week in between the 100 emails and 50 phone calls that I receive per day.

~Tim T. of Glen Burnie, Maryland heard of me through The Youtuber Streetspeed 717 as Mike had bought his Corvettes from me in the past and I even got him a ride in the Callaway Aerowagen and my 67 Corvette. Tim made a Noon appt with me yesterday and he narrowed it down to a few different Corvettes. The winning combo is this stunning Sebring Orange Metallic 2019 Stingray Corvette Z51 coupe and he traded in his 2019 BMW M240iX. This is Tim’s very first Corvette and it will be his everyday driver. Equipment list: 7spd manual transmission, Satin black full-length dual stripes, cf badge pkg, black motorsports aluminum wheels, cf painted spoiler and mirrors, navigation/PDR and 2Lt pkg. Beautiful day for a Corvette ride!

~~Jim A. of Silver Spring, Maryland was referred to me by two different people within a week and the 2nd time was the charm as he felt it was meant to be. A couple of weeks ago he was out to dinner with several couples and he mentioned he was thinking about buying a new Corvette. One of the couples chimed in and said: ”well you need to contact Mike Furman at Criswell!” A few days passed and he had forgotten my name, he was in the service lane at the Lexus dealer in Annapolis, MD and his sales rep asked if he wanted to trade in his 2017 Lexus for a new Lexus? Jim said, no I want to buy a new Corvette! So she said,” well then you need to call Mike Furman at Criswell!” Jim said it was meant to be if two strangers 70 miles apart refer my name to see about a Corvette! Jim made an appointment and picked out a new Arctic White 2019 Stingray Corvette with Auto transmission and Performance Exhaust. Back in the day, Jim owned a new 1970, 1971 and a 1984 Corvette! Jim drove away today with a Perma grin!

~Email from Jim A. _"Good morning Mike, I just want to thank you for the pics and video of yesterday’s delivery of my new Vette. You captured the story of Jim Warren and Barbara recommending I contact you for my purchase perfectly. The end of the video was wonderful, giving Criswell recognition and the American flag! Plus you were great to work with through the entire process!! Yesterday was an exciting day for me!" Thanks much, Jim A. of Silver Spring, MD
