~Next week, October 1st-6th I will be at Spring Mountain Race Track in Pahrump, Nevada hosting 3 (54 clients) Corvette driving school classes. 18 of my customers from all over the globe in a class and their guests. Make sure you put the Ron Fellows Spring Mountain Driving School on your bucket list if you’ve never attended. It’s a blast.
If you are one of the fortunate that will be out at these classes…I host a Pizza dinner party the night before the first class. Ask about it when you register at the main gate house. We will sit around the campfire and enjoy the Nevada sky.
Last Sunday…~ I departed Gaithersburg, MD at 6am and crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge at Sunrise (7am) and drove 2 1/2 hours to Norm’s house in Milford, Delaware for Norm’s famous Wax and Chats! Lots of chatting and no waxing. Breakfast and lunch and hospitality galore from the First State Corvette Club. Great bunch for sure! Enjoyed every moment and the weather could not have been any better! Couple folks flew their plane down from Cape Cod and one gentleman drove in from Michigan.
~On any given day you are able to view our Criswell Corvette Service lane in Gaithersburg, Maryland occupied by Corvettes…as these pictures show yesterday’s king of the hill, a 1967 427/435 Convertible with 2019’s King of the Hill, ZR1! A mere 52 years apart sharing the same space. Cooler than the other side of the pillow. Word is that may be Cal Ripken’s 2019 ZR1, and I know that is a local business owners 1967 427/435 Convt.
~C8 Deliveries this past week.
~Mitch and Rosemary W. of Rivervale, New Jersey took delivery at Criswell today of their very first Corvette…but get ready for the six degrees of Mike Furman. Mitch hales from Tenafly, NJ originally so I asked him if he knew a certain wrestling referee that used to coach at Tenafly? Of course he knew him and I showed him a picture of me from 1977/78 of that gentleman and me as he reffed many of my matches throughout the 70’s. So I start speaking with Rosemary and she is from Park Ridge, NJ…the very next town to where I grew up. She mentioned her maiden name and I said any relation to Bob? That’s her brother! She calls him and he didn’t remember me but then his wife in the background said she remembers me from when I grew up in Montvale. But wait it gets better, her Father taught me how to umpire when I was 14 and I played a ton of baseball/ fast pitch softball against her siblings and of course her Father did much of the umpiring. Oh and Rosemary grew up around the corner from James Gandolfini(Tony Soprano) and I played a ton of basketball with him during the 70’s too. Well back to Mitch’s new Silver Flare with Adrenaline red interior 2021 Corvette coupe…stunning from head to toe! Yesterday Mitch asked me was there anything he needed to bring besides the check? I said bagels from my home town and they brought me a nice care pkg! We had a ton of fun this morning as you can imagine. Now I have to go home and freeze the bagels! Mitch’s Father had a 1963 Corvette brand new and it got stolen in NYC so often that he finally sold it. Check out the last picture in honor of Dr Wolffe.
Me and the referee I spoke of that Mitch knew (Circa 1977), Spike Israel from Mitch’s hometown of Tenafly, NJ. Spike coached all of Mitch’s brothers. Spike was one of the best referee’s in the world. He often ref’d Div 1 College matches along with International matches like USA vs USSR.
Rosemary’s neighbor and old friend we grew up with.
And of course Dr Wolffe and his 63 Corvette Convt, Mitch’s father.

So two deliveries at the same time on top of all my Corvette deliveries etc. Hard to find a nicer family and today was double the the new car pleasure. GM survey from Jim:
”Mike Furman is the best salesman on the planet. We pass several Chevy dealers to get to Mike and Criswell simply because car purchases are so pleasant. Mike is knowledgeable, patient and appreciative of our business. Best of all, he’s honest and meets all of our needs”. JD
