Looking good. Congrats to Greg.

Love that 60th Anniversary package.

Perhaps, I'm a little bit biased.

And that is why I don't walk into showrooms.

Looked like he was driving away without his wife. Must have been a good trade-in.

Default My 2013 GS 60th Vert

Yep, it all started as a routine service visit on my 2011 1LT DD Coupe and now I have this 2013 Arctic White with Pearl Diamond Stripe GS 60th Vert in my garage.

What I liked most about this deal was the honest and straight forward manner Mike worked the numbers and closed the deal. No haggling, no pressure, no gimmicks. The only pressure I got was from my wife to hurry up and make it happen.

Equally appreciated is how he handed off the vehicle, taking time to acquaint me with the laundry list of 4LT options my 1LT Coupe lacked.

This is one awesome car, and she's right, I do deserve it. LOL!

Great new Vette! Congrats.
I'll have to make a note to stay away from there. I can be talked into things I should probably not do.

How is that Mr. Furman has gained so much acclaim on this site? Clearly this fellow has closed more deals than he can remember. My question is how is that so many people out there deal Vettes but this gentleman is so well documented in doing so? I honestly ask this question just to see what people say...and for that I thank you. Congratulations to the owner of that new white gem...I'm impressed.

35 consecutive years of selling the Corvette brand, honesty, integrity, passion for Corvette and a satisfied customer, developed relationships at the National Corvette Museum (and, subsequently, an Ambassador thereof) and factory at Bowling Green......To say nothing of developing phone and email relationships of people he knows may never be a customer for a Corvette sale.


Check out Mike's personal profile on Corvette Forum......it is a who's who of ownership of many Corvettes over the past decades. He has the history to back up the sale and over 2,700 sales to back up the history.

How is it? Goes like this: every business, every profession, has its stars. And stars are not born---they make themselves that way. Nor do they tell you how great they are. They listen, learn, let customers come to their decisions (even if it takes years, people remember how they were first treated, and they do go back to where someone took the time with them). And finally, they let others do the talking.

All that Mike states are the facts that he can talk about---his enjoyment of selling these cars, and his length of time in the biz. Frankly, that's not much different than the best in any biz including the sale of cars.

What I'm most impressed with is, I haven't seen one post that said, "he pressured me." Or, "he said this was a one time deal only good for one hour." Quite the opposite is said: "it was an enjoyable experience," "it went so quickly and smoothly," "I learned everything I needed to know." Comments like that only get said about the best and we've been lucky to hear/read it on this Forum.

In every line I've been in, I can name two or three people who are the stars, the best for all the right reasons. I'd bet all of us can. Mike happens to be one of those in his line of work. And that's why he's talked about by others.

What AORoads said is exactly my experience with Mike. Let's not forget his other brother Mike and Jackie in Finance and Dina in Service, combined they make a great sales, finance and service team.

Off to drive Nanook (Inupiat/Inuit for polar bear).

Congrats on a beauty!

I agree with JC6, that tone on tone soft top is outstanding and very unique. I also love how the stripes come down into the waterfall. I wish my 427 had that feature.

By the way, it looks like someone is going to get a very nice '11 as well!

When you read the Forum there are complaints about dealers not knowing the product or not keeping their word. I sleep well knowing my next Corvette, on order now, will be taken care of and be correct because of a great dealership and the BEST sales person in the business Mike Furman.

Congtaluations Greg on the new toy, it was nice meeting you & your wife the other day when I was picking up the black car. Yes, the grin on both of your faces was pretty big .

In response to the question on why Mike stands out, re-read the posts from AORoads & vette4lyn, can't say it any better than they have done. Pretty much says it all. No pressure, passion for doing what he does, great customer service skills, and just a pleasure to deal with.

Joe T.

First and foremost congratulations to the new owners of that beautiful 60th GS!

As for Mike, well in simple terms he's just a good guy. Not to leave out that he is a true "car guy", what he does (as do I in the same business) is loves his job and it shows very clearly in his enthusiasm, sincerity and helpfulness. I did not buy my Vette from Mike simply b/c it was local to me but if I had to order one going forward he would be the guy.
