Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvettes to his customers who come from all across the country to work with the nation’s top individual Corvette seller.
Truckload after truckload is delivering the new mid-engine 2020 Corvettes to Criswell Chevrolet and Mike Furman documents many of those deliveries. In this week’s round-up, we see some great color combinations and equipment pairings and witnessing the look of happiness from customers as they check out their new C8s is as addictive as the section of vintage and throwback photos! Mike reads the comments so let him know your favorites just as the late Frank Class used to do every week.

~The true sign of the success of a new generation Corvette is when you receive calls before the customer even gets home singing the praises and hearing the excitement in their voice. It happened with the 2014 and similar results with the 2020…times about 10! For those of you that have had the pleasure to drive the 8th Generation Corvette…you know what I mean. Yesterday I spoke with Alvin, a friend/customer of mine from Naples, Fl…actually he is a New Yorker transplanted down to Naples. He and his family are car aficionado’s, his Father’s collection sold at Christie’s Auction. Anyway, Alvin received his Torch Red C8 from me and had nothing but glowing reports from head to toe. Alvin’s first new Corvette was in 1962 and he has owned dozens since then among many many others. Below is a picture of Alvin teaching his Grandson how to care for his new Corvette.
This is one Corvette you won’t have to teach the younger generation to appreciate, everyone already does.
~Alvin W. of Naples, Florida has bought many Corvettes from me over the last decade and he was excited to receive his new mid-engine Torch Red 2020 Corvette. The adrenaline red interior really pops on Alvin’s new Z51 coupe! Last week we completed the Fed Ex pkgs and Wednesday Plycar trucking dropped off his new Corvette.
~Kris W. of Weston, Oregon is looking forward to his new Shadow Gray Metallic 2020 Corvette Z51 arriving at his home in the Pacific Northwest. Kris can’t wait to put the mid-engine Corvette to the test through the Mountain roads. This Corvette was picked up Monday and headed 2,800 miles West after we completed the Paperwork process via Fed Ex last week.
~Robert N. of Lewistown, Pennsylvania factory ordered a Sebring Orange 2020 Corvette Stingray Coupe with the Natural dipped interior and transparent roof. He has a truck picking it up Sunday to bring him his new Corvette. Equipment list: 3LT pkg, machine faced spectra gray wheels, silver center caps, and Orange seat belts.
~Aaron H. And his wife Mary of Saint Louis, Missouri has ordered Corvettes from me before so he felt comfortable doing a courtesy delivery to his local Chevrolet dealer again. This time he spec’d out his 2020 Corvette Z51 with almost every option! Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic with Tension/Twilight Blue interior, 3LT pkg, transparent top, yellow calipers, Spectra gray wheels, cf painted mirrors and much more. In Aaron’s own words…
Hope all is well!
You did it again! Just like with my C7 in September of 2013, you had me a Vette on the first truckload to St Louis from BG to my courtesy delivery who did an AMAZING job AGAIN helping out on the process! All I can say about the car if someone agrees with me that the C5 and C7 were revolutionary steps forward for Corvette, is that unless they introduce one that flys itself, you will never see such a tremendous leap forward in the architecture and mechanics that the C8 had made. I really hope other clients take the time to look into the 2 Tone Blue interior and/or Ceramic Matrix Gray paint. Can’t describe how brilliant they look in different lights until seen in person. I can’t believe its been a little over 5 years since I sent you a deposit for the rumored “Zora” supercar they were allegedly working on. At the time you opined it could be in the $90-150k range…turns out Tadge and Co. figured out a way to mass-produce THE American supercar for $80k. Once again you made the whole process as easy as possible, I felt the trade-in was fair for both parties and even though you are the busiest Vette pimp in the land, communication was excellent. When I read these oft-repeated horror stories of people so lost in the process of a new rollout and the dealers who are about as, or more clueless. I am really grateful we were able to do business.
Best of Luck.”

~Seth P. of Parkland, Florida received his new Torch Red with two-tone red interior 2020 Corvette this week via courtesy delivery from a Chevrolet dealer within an hour of his home. His Corvette is stunning head to toe! Check out the two-tone Red/Black interior with the Torch Red paint!
~Todd and Melanie B. of Clover, South Carolina placed their order for a loaded 2020 Corvette Z51 coupe and took delivery at the Corvette Museum this past week. Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic with Tension Blue and Twilight Blue interior is a stunning combo. This past week I delivered a 2019 Corvette GS to a fellow Corvette club member from their North Carolina Corvette club.
~Stan S of Newbury Park, California had his new Torch Red 2020 Corvette Z51 factory ordered to arrive at Criswell so that our mechanics could do the pre-delivery inspection. Plycar trucking will pick it up Monday and deliver it the 3,000 miles cross country to his home in California. Stan is a repeat customer and has done the same thing before.
~Phil M. of Naples, Florida hopped on a plane Saturday morning with his son so he could come to Criswell Chevrolet in Gaithersburg, MD to take delivery of his new Arctic White/Adrenaline Red 2020 Corvette Z51 coupe. They were both looking forward to the 1,200 Mile Road trip home!
~Ken M. of Marietta, Ohio contacted me a few years ago as he knew of my reputation through the internet. I had Ken’s new Torch Red 2020 Corvette Z51 drop-shipped into his local Chevrolet dealer in Marietta, Ohio for a courtesy delivery. Ken ordered a coupe with 3LT pkg, visible carbon-fiber roof, front lift with adjustable height, magnetic ride, red calipers, Sterling silver trident wheels, Cf painted mirrors/spoiler and engine appearance pkg. Ken’s own words…”I love it. It is amazing!”
~Dan J. of Casselberry, Florida left his deposit for a new mid-engine almost 5 years ago hence the reason his new Torch Red 2020 Z51 was such an early build. I had it drop-shipped for courtesy delivery to his local Chevrolet dealer in Avon Park, Florida. Equipment list: 3LT pkg, front lift adjustable height, CF cluster surround, red calipers, CF black wheels, engine appearance pkg, red seat belts, and black interior.
~John D. of Bear, Delaware was one happy camper when I called him with the news that his new Ceramic Matrix Gray 2020 Corvette had arrived! The cool gray interior looks awesome on John’s new Z51! John traded in a Black C7 Z06 this morning and called me halfway home to Delaware to tell me how great the 8th generation Corvette is!
~Doug H. of Buena Vista, Colorado factory ordered a 2020 Corvette Z51 Coupe in Arctic White with Jet Black Interior, magnetic ride control, front lift adjustable height and 2LT pkg. Plycar trucking will come on Monday to deliver it to Doug’s Home in Colorado.
~Cheyne P. of Spicewood, Texas has bought several Corvettes from me and this week he took delivery at the Corvette Museum! Cheyne ordered a Black 2020 Corvette Z51 with yellow calipers and yellow seat belts! Very sharp combo.
~Florida businessman ordered Shadow Gray with Cool Gray interior and this looks great along with the red seat belts and red calipers.
~Chris G. of Denver, North Carolina has a deposit with me for a 2021 Corvette but he wanted something to bide his time for a bit. The 0% financing offer (on remaining 2019’s) was just the ticket so he picked out a Shadow Gray 2019 Grand Sport from my inventory and made an appointment this past week. Chris hopped a quick flight up and was in and out under an hour and headed the 450 miles home to North Carolina with a Perma smile. Chris used to drive Vipers and now he is a Corvette man! He sold his 2017 Corvette before this purchase.
