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.
This week’s Delivery Dispatch is loaded with new C8 Corvette deliveries, and several have some interesting color combos to check out. But first, Mike gives us the first look at the luggage set that comes with the 70th Anniversary models. As always, stay until the end, and you are rewarded with a huge collection of vintage and throwback photos. Let us know your favorites in the comments section!
~ The 70th Anniversary Corvette for 2023 comes with a set of two very well-made 70th travel bags. I took pictures and a video so that you could view them close up. The complete 70th pkg includes: Torch Red Seat belts, Sueded microfiber steering wheel, edge red calipers, 20 spoke carbon flash painted forged aluminum wheels with red stripe, Travel bags, rear fascia and roof storage protector, carbon flash metallic outside mirrors, 70th Anniversary center caps.
~Choose from Pearl White paint (like mine, vin 00007) or Carbon Flash black metallic paint. You can’t go wrong either way. I chose not to have the dual racing stripes and ordered the top and nacelles in carbon flash black. I also ordered Competition seats which reverse the interior color as compared to the GT2 seats.
~ C8 Corvette Deliveries for the Week
~Jeff J. of Scottsdale, Arizona factory ordered his new Hypersonic Gray 2023 Corvette coupe with Natural interior from me and I had it drop shipped for courtesy delivery at his local Phoenix Chevrolet dealership. Jeff took delivery yesterday and Kenny the Fleet mgr handled the delivery. Jeff moved to my Montvale, NJ neighborhood in 1967, he was 5 and I was 7. We became quick best friends. As life moves along Jeff moved to AZ in the early 90’s. The last time we met up was Summer of 2005 when I was testing the new Z06’s at Bob Bondurant’s race track before introduction that Fall of 2005. Many of my AZ Corvette customers visit Jeff’s bagel shop and he finally relented and got in line for a new C8 Corvette. We spoke last night and he was thrilled to replace his BMW with his new Stingray. Congrats my friend on your new car, it truly is a world class sports car.
~Mike M. of Mill Creek, Washington factory ordered from me a Red Mist 2023 Corvette Z51 coupe with Natural/Black two tone interior. I had it drop shipped to his local Chevrolet dealership in Monroe, Washington. This is one fully optioned Corvette that will be enjoyed thoroughly.
~Ken F. of Gaithersburg, Maryland has followed me on the internet and also Tony of Tony’s Corvette shop referred Ken my way so when it came time to order he knew exactly what he was seeking. Today was family day here at Criswell and Ken even had his C6 here that I sold originally to the guy that Ken bought it from years ago. Ken drove home in his new Amplify Orange 2023 Corvette Z51 coupe with Natural interior and high wing spoiler! The transparent top came off quick as his daughter showed him how to properly store it in the trunk. Congrats to the whole family and Ken, enjoy the heck out of your new Corvette…it’s world class in every way just like you
~Joe L. of Wayne, New Jersey ordered his 19 GS from me and today he took delivery of his new Arctic White 2023 Corvette Z51 coupe with Adrenaline Red seats. Joe took the train down to Maryland and is riding home in style with his new C8 mid engine Corvette. He must know I like Starbucks ?? as he left me a gift card! Thanks Joe! He knew the C8 very well and was in and out of the dealership in 20 minutes which included the paperwork/payment process in the business office!
~Lance W. of Yorba Linda, California ordered from me a Torch Red 2023 Corvette Z51 Convt with Black interior and Custom red stitching. The carbon flash dual racing stripes really pop.

~Kenny J. of Bethesda, Maryland has bought several Corvettes and family vehicles from me and today he drove away in his new Red Mist 2023 Corvette Z51 convertible with Natural dipped interior. Great combo especially with the Edge red calipers and Gloss Black forged aluminum wheels. Ken had a perma grin throughout todays delivery process. Can’t say I blame him as this is one beauty of a sports car.
