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 Bash week at the National Corvette Museum and if you are planning on attending, make sure you introduce yourself to Mike who will be attending the show. This week’s Delivery post shares some of the great Corvette people he has met over the years, both from GM as well as some well-known personalities from their respective fields. Mike’s delivery post this week features a fabulous round-up of new 2021 Corvettes in multiple colors and configurations. Red Mist sure is a pretty color, and very popular as you will see. Mike also has a nice collection of vintage and throwback photos so make sure you scroll to the end and then leave a comment on which photo was your favorite for the week.

~Kevin G. of Spring, Texas just received his new C8 via Plycar trucking…in his own words”David from Plycar delivered the new Torch Red C8 on Tuesday.
Car looks beautiful.
Your Team did a fabulous job with it.
Well worth the wait.
Unfortunately it’s been raining on and off since then.
So, I haven’t been able to get any great pictures.
But, give me a few weeks, and I’ll be taking this beauty for a ride.
And then, I’ll get you even better pictures.
Thank you for all that you did to facilitate putting this all together.
Thank you again.”

~This past Tuesday after all my onsite deliveries I hopped in my Corvette and drove across the state 55 miles to the corvette Club of Annapolis meeting. Tom Morris, the owner of The Chesapeake Car Wash in Annapolis invited me as his guest. Tom recently bought a C7 Z06 along with a Silverado from me and his fiance bought an Equinox from me a few months ago. 75 club members attended the meeting tonight and many of my Corvette customers were in attendance. I had a fantastic time. Tom also does Play by play support for the Washington Capitals and he had to do the Caps game remotely from his office this evening. Check out Tom’s Stanley Cup Championship ring!
