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.
It’s another great week for new Corvette owners as these great photos from Mike’s weekly delivery post shows. As you know, Mike was off last week as he hosted a full class of new C8 Corvette owners out at Spring Mountain. On his return, we are playing catch-up as he shares well over 100 images of new Corvette deliveries! As always, Mike includes a section on throwback and vintage photos so let him know your favorites in the comments below.
Visit Mike’s facebook page for even more photos and videos of his new Corvette deliveries: CorvetteFurman.
~The most common theme after taking delivery of a C8 is for the customer to call me and say I was right about the new Corvette. That is does everything I had said and more. I also hear similar words when I host a group of 20 Corvette customers out at Spring Mountain Race track in Pahrump, Nevada…which happened last week. We all arrived and the trip was over before we knew it…that’s when you know the experience at Ron Fellow’s school was terrific. 80% of my customers are from out of state and I never get to meet them unless they travel to an event at the Museum or Carlisle etc…hence the reason for me hosting these schools so we can all have fun together in a safe environment with great instructors in C8’s prepped and ready to go!

I even got to experience a 50th Anniversary 2019 GT 40 Carbon Edition…so cool.
~Some deliveries from this past week…
~Chris P. of Kings Park, NY has ordered a dozen or more Corvettes and countless other vehicles from me over the last decade+ but his new 2020 Corvette Z51 Convertible has him super excited. Yesterday Chris sent down on one of his Plycar Trucking vehicles with Callaway #1, 2014 Corvette Convt, and picked up his new Corvette. The paperwork/payment process was completed via Fed Ex. Chris ordered every option available including all exposed weave carbon fiber parts and he bought the high wing spoiler over the parts counter for our Corvette service team to install! The Black paint with Silver stripes and Morello red interior is striking!
~Jack S. of the Eastern Shore, Maryland has ordered 4 other Corvettes from me and has even referred many folks my way for Chevy trucks and Honda’s and Thursday was delivery day of his Rapid Blue 2020 Corvette Z51 Convertible. I don’t normally drive a Corvette 100 miles for delivery but I had done it once before for Jack and the weather turned out perfect to do it again. Jack had a wonderful lunch set up overlooking the Chesapeake Bay in his backyard and as I pulled up he had the Orange design pkg ZR1 out front that I had sold to him last year. I appreciate Jacks’s business and friendship very much! Jack even had a Black Mercedes Limo ready to take me the 100 miles back to Criswell Chevrolet and Jeff the driver and I talked most of the way home. Equipment list: 3LT pkg, Tension Blue/ Twilight blue interior, sterling silver full-length stripes, CF top and Nacelles, front lift, magnetic ride, CF instrument panel, sterling silver trident wheels, tan seat belts, and through our parts dept we added CF ground effects pkg and high wing spoiler.
My view on the way back to Criswell Chevrolet.
~Neil K. of Chevy Chase, Maryland didn’t have to go far to start a deal folder for the 2020 Corvette…Neil has been the head of marketing for Criswell for well over 20 years. Neil just received his Zeus Bronze metallic painted hardtop convertible and to his credit, it will be his everyday car. Kudos! Neil chose the Natural dipped interior and Performance Pewter wheels along with the body color exterior accents which makes the Corvette a knockout! Equipment list: 3LT pkg, front lift, magnetic ride, Z51 pkg, and much more. Neil is absolutely thrilled with his new drop-top Corvette.
~Bev and George H. of Lansdale, Pennsylvania special ordered this stunning Rapid Blue 2020 Corvette Z51 Hardtop Convertible with the Tension Blue/twilight blue interior and it pops. George was unable to attend this week so Bev enlisted two incredible guys to enclose truck the new Corvette the 4 hours back to their home. Equipment list: 3LT pkg, CF Painted top and Nacelles, front lift, CF Instrument panel, magnetic ride, edge red calipers, spectra gray wheels, CF red hash stripe, cf painted mirrors, and much more. I can’t wait to hear their response to the 5th Corvette that they have owned! C4, C5, C6, C7, and now C8.
~Mary D. of Lewistown, Pennsylvania factory ordered a terrific new 2020 Corvette hardtop Convt in Arctic White with two-tone Natural interior. The paperwork/payment process is done and the enclosed trailer shipped it to Mary’s driveway. Equipment list: 2LT pkg, GT2 seats, CF roof and Nacelles, sterling trident wheels, Yellow calipers, silver fender hash stripes. Great Corvette in every way!
~Gregg S. of Boca Raton, FL splits time in Long Island out in the Hamptons but for his new Corvette, he traveled to Bowling Green, KY for the museum delivery experience. Gregg ordered a Blade Silver Corvette Z51 coupe with Morello dipped interior. Equipment list: 3LT pkg, front lift, magnetic ride, edge red calipers, cf painted wheels, and much more. Super nice guy now has a super cool Corvette!
~Dom and Kristen R. of Springfield, Pennsylvania placed a Corvette factory order to be a family affair delivery at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Last week was delivery day for the Family and the experience was incredible. Dom ordered an Elkhart Lake Blue 2020 Corvette Z51 Convertible with Adrenaline Red interior. Equipment list: CF painted Nacelles and body-color roof, 3LT pkg, front lift, magnetic ride, bright red calipers, CF painted wheels, Torch Red seat belts, and much more.
~Jason Z. of Magnolia, Texas factory ordered his new Sebring Orange 2020 Corvette Coupe and I had it drop shipped to his local Chevrolet dealer in Katy, Texas…ironically his was one of two Corvettes picked up the same day at the same dealer… first time like that since October of 2013 when I had 4 picked up on the same day from a Chevrolet dealer in Oregon. Jason ordered one slick Corvette with 2LT pkg, GT2 seats, Orange seat belts, black interior, and more.
~Harold” Chubby” B. of Middleburg, Kentucky has most likely owned more Corvettes than any other Kentucky resident. Steve H. has referred a dozen+ customers my way and Chubby is the latest…sort of. You see Chubby gifted his new Elkhart Lake Blue 2020 Corvette Z51 hardtop convertible to his grandson Spencer! Spencer is an all State athlete and Chubby’s son and daughter in law picked up the Corvette from Steve’s house where it was stored since Steve picked it up at the local Chevrolet dealer in Nicholasville, Kentucky as I had it drop-shipped for courtesy delivery last week. Lots of photos back in time to view. Equipment list: 2LT pkg, two-tone sky cool gray and black interior, GT2 seats, chrome badges, bright red calipers, tension blue seat belts, and much more. Say congrats to Spencer(still in shock) and I’m sure he will be the one with the Perma grin for a very long time. Well done Chubby and thank you, Steve, for all your help and the referral.
Spencer now and back a few years.
Chubby’s son and daughter in law.
hubby and some of his Corvettes from back in the day.
~Bob D. of Redondo Beach, California factory ordered his Crystal red/Kalahari 2014 Convt from me and took delivery at the Corvette Museum…this time Bob ordered a Blade Silver/Natural dipped 2020 Hardtop convertible to come to Criswell Chevrolet in Maryland and be enclosed shipped to his Las Vegas, Nevada home. This Corvette is stunning in pictures and even better in person! The paperwork/payment process is completed via Fed Ex and yesterday Plycar trucking picked it up and will ship it via enclosed trailer to Nevada.Equipment list: 3LT pkg, Sterling silver full-length stripes, front lift, magnetic ride, bright red calipers, Z51 pkg, and much more.
~George and Mary N. of Nellysford, Virginia factory ordered a loaded Blade Silver / Morello red dipped 2020 Corvette convertible to replace his 2014 Limerock green/brownstone convertible. Last week they drove up 155 miles to make the switch. Just like the Supertramp song, they are taking the long way home! Equipment list: 3LT pkg, CF painted Nacelles and top, chrome badges, front lift, magnetic ride, sterling silver trident wheels, Z51 pkg, and much more. Two of the nicest folks and they will drive and enjoy their new Corvette so look for them on the road.
