Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for July 3rd



Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for July 3rd

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.

Mike left town earlier this week for a few days of vacation over the holiday weekend but don’t fret as we still have a delivery dispatch to share today. In addition to the new C8 Corvette deliveries, Mike also put together a great collection of throwback and vintage pics for your enjoyment. Check them out and then let us know which were your favorites by leaving a comment below.

~Last year’s 4Th of July golf partner is the same today, Chuck V. Heads up the paint facility at The Corvette Plant in Bowling Green, and we both vacation in Ocean City, Maryland each year. This year he surprised me by being a pre-production 2023 Z06/Z07 in Elkhart Lake Blue…just so happens he brought the color I’m choosing for my Z06. I surprised him with a game-used Baltimore Ravens jersey as he is a big fan. I’m sure he will have it framed in his office real soon. Now on to Golf!

~I’m all packed and ready for vacation. I come back on the 8th to take delivery of my new ‘23 70th Anniversary Convertible and then on the 9th I will be in Haymarket, Virginia for the Vettes for Vets show. July 11th is when I will return to My Chevrolet office at Criswell of Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Corvette Deliveries with Mike Furman

~A couple new C8 deliveries before I left town

~James and Andrea M. of Middletown, Delaware were referred to me by everyone’s Corvette friends, John and Mary Nist. Today is the 70th anniversary of the first Corvette being produced and coincides with Jim and Andrea’s very first Corvette purchase. They will split driving supposedly equal but my bet is Andrea will be behind the wheel more often of their new Torch Red 2023 Corvette Z51 Convertible with Natural interior and the new 20 spoke Gloss black wheels. Andrea brought the showroom staff homemade Cinnamon buns!

~Keith N. of Olive Branch, Mississippi called me to buy his very first new car that he has ever owned as he always took care of his family first. I had his Arctic White 2023 Corvette Convertible drop-shipped for courtesy delivery at his local Chevrolet dealership in Collierville, Tennessee and he took delivery last Friday. He called me with sheer delight in his voice after his initial ride in his new world-class sports car. Keith chose Adrenaline red for his interior and 2LT pkg along with low wing spoiler and some other goodies! Congrats Keith!

~I traded in my Red 2021 Blazer RS today for a new 2022 Black Blazer RS. Onward and upward after 9,800 perfect miles.


Cool story about Tony Kepper’s mother and her Corvette…

~”Mother was 27 years old and had just passed the Mississippi bar association to become the first female attorney in Hattiesburg Mississippi. She bought herself this Corvette from the local Chevrolet dealer. She said it was kind of funny because people weren’t sure what it was made of…they we’re asking the dealer if they could touch the car…they were afraid that it would crack like an egg as it was the first one in our town and no one knew what it really was. But my mother said that crowds of people were circling the car afraid to touch it!. She said the list price was $3,300. After about a month she went back to the dealer. He saw her looking at the car and ask her what she would pay for it! She said $2,800 and was able to purchase the car. I asked her was the car very fast she said no she said it was very basic as it had an automatic transmission six-cylinder motor with three carburetors and it was the slowest car on the road but it was fun to drive. It did not have rollup windows it had plastic side curtains and when it rained it leaked. But it was an Eye catcher and people loved looking at the car everywhere she went.”
