~Pure joy as it should be…witnessing folks taking delivery of a new or used Corvette is always fun. Don’t believe me? Stop by anytime and witness any of my daily deliveries. People from all over the USA fly in drive home or take off-site delivery such as a Corvette Museum delivery or courtesy delivery…this week I had approx 15 off-site deliveries and the only sad part is that means I don’t get to meet/greet them first hand. I try to share the enthusiasm through pictures and videos so other fellow Corvette enthusiasts can see different color combos etc. Take a look sometime……follow on Instagram: corvette.furman and Facebook: Corvette Furman
~We lost a great American this week, Brigadier Gen. Chuck Yeager…he also drove the 1986 Corvette Pace Car at the Indy 500…so that makes him a Corvette guy too.
>>The truest measure of performance…is consistency.<<

Rich has been buying Corvettes for 40+ years…so I am sure there is a C8 in his future.
