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.
What an eventful week this was for the C8 Corvette! On Monday, the 2020 Corvette was awarded the title of North American Car of the Year, and on Saturday, the first retail 2020 Corvette sold for $3 million at Barrett-Jackson to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick. Meanwhile, the order books opened up on the new 2020 Corvette Stingray convertible this week. Back at Criswell’s sales lot, Mike Furman has been busy closing out the C7 model year with the deliveries of several new 2019 Corvettes. As always, he has a great collection of throwbacks including a few of Elfi Duntov back in the day. And if you keep scrolling, you might come across a certain CorvetteBlogger trying to grow the hobby one new convert at a time. Hit the comments form below when you reach the end and tell Mike which is your favorite photo for the week.

~Last night’s exciting auction at BJ saw the rights to order and build C8 vin#001 and it sold for a cool 3 million which went to charity. Lots of C8 action this week as the 2020 Corvette won the North American Car of the Year Award…just like the 2014 Corvette. Tremendous accomplishment for the Chevrolet Corvette team. Congrats! Exciting times are near as production start-up for the C8 begins in just 15 days. The C7 was the 2nd shortest run of all the generations.
The breakdown of generations using the "C" started with the C5, 5th Generation… C1- 1953-1962, C2- 1963-1967, C3- 1968-1982, C4-1984-1996, C5- 1997-2004, C6-2005-2013, C7-2014-2019 and the C8 starts with the 2020 model year. I’ve owned 19 Corvettes and the only Generation I have not owned is the C3…yet.
~Spotlight on Silver in today’s delivery post.
~~Merritt and Anong L. of Sebastian, Florida called me last week to put down a deposit on a 2021 Corvette…then they called back for a sight-unseen trade value on their 2013 Mercedes SUV. Merritt purchased a Blade Silver 2019 Corvette Grand Sport to hold him over until the 2021 Corvette allocation comes out. They drove up 1,000 miles from their home in Florida to Criswell Chevrolet and took delivery of Merritt’s 2nd Corvette, he had owned a 1982 Corvette brand new. 2019 GS Equipment list: Auto transmission, 2LT pkg, black wheels and Navigation/PDR. I received several emails already and they are thrilled with their new Corvette.
