[RIDES] LANZ06 Receives a Surprise 2021 Corvette Stingray Convertible

There is no Sunday delivery post with Mike Furman today as he is out on a well-deserved vacation this week. Instead, we are offering up another special Corvette delivery that we learned about earlier this week on the Corvette Forum.

Corvette Forum member LANZ06 shared the story his new 201 Corvette Stingray Convertible and the circumstances that made this delivery very special:

So, long story short. 2 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed as being VERY sick. All I talked about was getting a C8 before it’s too late. I am already here longer than I am supposed to be. Well, last weekend my Uncle and Aunt invite me and my wife up to Maine for the weekend. We wake up on Saturday and go look at a house he just purchased on the ocean. They open up the garage, and there it is. A 2021 HTC, Shadow Gray Metallic with the Natural Dipped interior. It is the car I have dreamed about. He has a 2020 Bronze HTC. So I say OMG you got the 2021 too?! And they say” NO YOU GOT THE 2021″! What great family I have! I love this thing! I will post some pics when i take a few good ones if the weather ever gets nice here! I did not post this for any sympathy! I posted it to say what a great family I have and I thought it was a cool story to share.

Needless to say, other CF members replied with their congratulations on his new Corvette, and offered kudos to his family members for making such a memorable gift possible. The story also puts into perspective what’s really important in life…family, friends, and the will to carry on when presented with life-altering news.

Thanks to LANZ06 for sharing his story and allow us to share it with our readers.

  1. Great story. I have a similar story except my prognosis is a lot better. I have had a vette on order since September 2019. Life was good even though my order was pushed to the 2021 model and now it has been pushed to the 2022 model year. Life went on as usual till November 2021. I was diagnosed with melanoma and had surgery to remove it. They removed the lymph nodes on my right side and found cancer cells. I am currently undergoing immunotherapy that will conclude December 20th and, hopefully, that will be it. In the meantime, April 19th l suffered a heart attack but thankfully, through the quick response of the fire department paramedics l only spent 4 days in the hospital. I am in good health and still waiting for word on delivery of my vette, hopefully by Christmas.

  2. Wonderful story! You are blessed indeed. I hope you have a miraculous recovery and enjoy your family and the car for a long time.
