We also see some long distance deliveries which Mike can make happen through selected Courtesy deliveries and shipping the car directly from the dealership to your door. Mike also puts together a great collection of throwback and vintage photos for your review so let him know your favorites in the comments below.
~Apropos with the NFL season opener coming up this week that I share Johnny Unitas on top of a first generation Corvette.
~Rich P. of Sewell, NJ decided to come down to Criswell of Gaithersburg, MD in person to spec out his new Corvette as his allocation is coming up. He brought me two real Philadelphia cheesesteaks, one from Pat’s and one from Geno’s. Fun was had by all including his buddy Jake who disappeared like he was in the witness protection program as soon as I took a picture.
~Nice email I received from Saturday’s customer…”Good morning Mike;
Hope you had a great weekend. Wanted to reach out with a great feeling of appreciation for your wisdom, guidance, and counsel. It was a long process, but well worth the wait my friend. I am grateful for your insight and well timed nuggets and suggestions. I sent a note to Jeff and thanked him for introducing me to you. At this stage of our lives material objects are not the means to happiness, simply a tool to create joy for the moments we have in the journey through life. However, as part of the process, I discovered the friendship with you and the genuineness associated with you, and to me that is a much more important aspect of the process.
Have a great week and stay well my friend.”
Ali A. Of Virginia
~Todays email went to My boss…
“I felt compelled to send this note of gratitude to both Criswell Chevrolet & especially Mike Furman. Your dealership should be commended for offering new Corvettes to customers at the MSRP price. Your Corvette buying customers appreciate your honesty & forthright approach to business. With regards to Mike, where do I start. In all of my years of car buying from dealerships, I have never encountered the likes of Mike! He is informative, knowledgeable & professional all while reaching the customer
on a personal level. As a resident of New Jersey, I could have made my purchase closer to home, but I’m thoroughly satisfied that I made the right choice in dealing with Criswell Chevrolet & Mike Furman.”
~Mel M. of Miami, Florida was like an 8 year old on Christmas morning waiting for his new Red Mist 2023 Corvette convertible to be delivered via Plycar Trucking from Criswell Chevrolet of Gaithersburg, MD to his Miami, FL home. Mel ordered the 70th anniversary door badges and nose badge and installed them pronto!
Email to my boss:
“I wish to express my gratitude for the excellent service and the fine treatment provided by your dealership and Mike Furman in particular. I live 1/2 mile from another major Corvette dealer, but I choose to do business with CRISWELL because of Mike. His professional approach dealing with customers is exemplary, and uncommon in today’s car industry. He is honest, diligent, and knows his stuff like no other. His word is his bond, and he reflects very highly on your dealership. I look forward to buying cars from CRISWELL in the future, and I will continue to refer my friends and business associates to Mike for their needs. The highest form of compliment is expressed in a few words: job well done. Thanks again for everything.”
~Nicholas C. of Tucson, Arizona factory ordered his new Hypersonic gray 2023 Corvette coupe from me and I had it drop shipped for courtesy delivery at his local Chevrolet dealership in Phoenix, AZ. Nicholas chose Adrenaline Red interior, 1LT pkg, CF full length stripes, bright red calipers, performance exhaust, and much more!
~Rich C. of Hagerstown, Maryland has been buying Corvettes, work trucks and family vehicles including Jeeps from me for the last 20 years and he bought his first Corvette at Criswell Chevrolet 42 years ago!

Equipment list: 2LT pkg, high wing spoiler, GT2 buckets, CF full length stripes, body color accents, magnetic ride, Sterling silver trident wheels, and much more.
~Jay W. of Mission Viejo, California factory ordered his Red Mist 2023 Corvette Z51 convertible from me and I had it drop shipped for courtesy delivery at his local Chevrolet dealership in Costa Mesa, CA.

~A Thank you note from the customers wife…”Thank You Corvette Furman.”
Good morning, Mike:
David’s baby made it home to Naples, FL. Brett, the driver with Plycar, was terrific. He kept David informed and delivered it in perfect condition. Very exciting to watch it come off the truck. A young man we know who is building his auto photography business in Naples asked to take photos of the car and we wanted to share some of them with you. While taking these photos in our neighborhood, two kids came up to the car and just stared. David invited them to sit in the car and then they went to town taking photos of each other. It was so funny to watch. This car brings smiles to young and old! Our sincere thanks to you for all that you did to help make David’s dream come true. We were in great hands with you and it was well worth the wait!”
David and Jackie S. Naples, FL
p.s. Thank you for the peanut brittle – yes, it’s almost gone!
~ Kathleen and Troy L. of Forest Grove, Oregon decided to fly across the country when their allocation came up so they could visit me and spec out their new Corvette. Two of the nicest folks that I was really glad to meet in person. They had me drop ship it to their local Chevrolet dealership in Hillsboro, Oregon. Check out their stunning Red Mist 2023 Corvette Z51 Convertible with the following equipment list: 2LT, GT2 buckets, front lift, magnetic ride, edge red calipers, black exhaust tips, Gloss black wheels, CF painted mirrors and Z51 pkg. I am sure they will thoroughly enjoy their new drop top Convertible.
~Fitzgerald W. of Washington, DC factory ordered from me a Ceramic Matrix Gray 2023 Corvette Z51 Convertible with two tone Red/Black interior. He was thrilled to take delivery and was chomping at the bit to take his world class sports car for its maidan voyage.
~9/11/22~Corvette Barn find and throwback pics honoring my old customer Frank Class. RIP. He thoroughly enjoyed all my Corvette pics that I would post every week!
