[PICS] Chevy Salesperson Goes to New Heights to Deliver Nearly Identical 2020 Corvettes to Two Friends


Now that the 2020 Corvettes are shipping to dealers and the NCM, we’ve shared some of the really cool deliveries of the new mid-engine sports car from new owners, excited YouTubers, and of course, the Chevy salespeope who get to hand over the keys in what has become a ritualized experience that signifies the official transfer of ownership.

Over the weekend, we heard of a cool tale of two friends picking up their near-identical new 2020 Corvettes at Jeff Schmitt Chevrolet in Ohio last week. For Chevy salesperson Josh Palmer, it would be a Corvette delivery he would remember forever.

Here is Josh with the full story:

I’ll start with a little of the backstory…

In the early stages of the C7 ZR1 production, Jeff Schmitt Chevrolet East in Beavercreek, Ohio received a few additional allocations.

I immediately thought of a post in the forum from Scott, based in Cincinnati, Ohio who was in search of one. I reached out to Scott and learned he’d already made a purchase for a ZR1. He did, however, have a friend, Louis, who was in the market for a ZR1 and made the introduction.

Louis was great to work with and spec’d out a stunning 2019 Corvette ZR1 finished in Arctic White with Jet Black Interior, 3ZR Equipment Package, ZTK Track Performance Package, Competition Seats with Chrome wheels. It was an amazing machine. As a fellow Corvette enthusiast, I had a hard time seeing that one go!

In addition to the introduction, Scott also requested to be put on the C8 list. He ended up being first on the list! We spec’d out a beautiful Arctic White, Adrenaline Red Interior, 2LT, Z51, Magnetic Ride, GT2 Seats, Black Mirrors, Black High Wing Spoiler and Trident Wheels.

As all of you can fully appreciate, Louis also placed an order for a C8, Louis spec’d his Corvette with the Z51 Performance Package, Magnetic Ride, Carbon Fiber Roof, Engine Appearance Package, 2LT Equipment Package, GT2 Seats, Two-Tone Natural and Black Interior and the Trident Wheels! These guys have excellent taste in cars!

Prior to production of the C8 in Bowling Green, Scott informed me that he was having a procedure on his shoulder that would prevent him from being able to fully enjoy his 2019 Corvette Grand Sport (7-speed manual). Although difficult, he ultimately felt the right move was to go ahead and trade it in early.

Since his C8 had not yet been built, Scott would be dropping a car off without a way to get home. I mentioned I would be happy to assist with the drop-off. I planned to ask a coworker to ride with me to pick it up, no problem. Little did I know, that would be the moment things got interesting…

As scheduled, Scott showed up to the dealership on time and smiling. However, he didn’t show up in the car as most expected. He showed up in this…

Did I mention he was the PILOT? After landing, Scott came in, signed the necessary documents and handed over the title to his 2019 Grand Sport. He and I then took off (which now has an entirely new meaning to me after this day) and FLEW back to his home to pick up the car.

Could this day be any better for a car-guy? As I am sure you can guess, it wasn’t over…

After one of the most memorable and amazing experiences of my life, the day ended with me driving back a barely used (1,500 Miles) Grand Sport back to Jeff Schmitt in Beavercreek, OH. How’s that for a day in the life of a car salesman!?

There are not words to describe how amazing this incredibly rare and unforgettable this experience was.. Scott really is a 10 of a guy. I could keep going with my appreciation of this experience but, I will wrap it up by saying, Thank you, Scott, for making a smaller errand a LOT more fun!

The best part in working with Scott was hearing his excitement once we knew the Corvette was on the truck and headed to the dealership. Though the helicopter ride is a very close second!

Scott, Thank You! May you enjoy it in great health!
