Default My 3,000th Corvette delivery/ Limerock Green Z51 Convt joins his 74 Jaguar

July 26th 1978 I sold Cassius De la Victoria of Westwood, NJ his Corvette...and nearly 426 months later Richard from Potomac, MD took delivery of his 2014 Stingray Z51 3LT Convt in Limerock Green Metallic with Kalahari top and interior. In between I delivered 2,998 other Corvettes...any way you do the Math that's a ton of Corvettes! 3,000 is a huge milestone and Richard didn't know it until he walked in at 10am this morning. Our Marketing Mgr arranged for pictures and video to be taken and Richard was a good sport being involved. Richard drove home and parked his new Stingray next to his 1974 Jaguar E type that he recently restored...it was his Fathers car.
Enjoy the pictures....
***and this Friday~ the TV Show from Bravo Network- "Newlyweds" will be here at Criswell Chevrolet filming one of the Newlyweds buying a new Corvette from me. They requested me somehow and I just signed 10 pages of Network release forms this morning. I will let everyone know when this show gets aired on TV.
Several years back the movie "Borat" was filmed here, maybe this will be my 15 seconds of fame...haha. Stay tuned!

See the 3000th delivery video at this link:











































While I will always be a Corvette guy, I just wanted folks to know I can give you the same professional, honest customer service on a Callaway Suburban or Tahoe, Viper, SRT, Maserati, GTR or any of the new and used vehicles in the Criswell Automotive family. I am happy to assist with anything we sell. http://criswellcorvette.com/mike_furman.aspx

3,000! That really is a huge number for selling Corvettes. And I really like that color combo. Richard's a good sport, no doubt about it but his taste is excellent. Something tells me he likes dark green.

Series 2 Jag, very nice looking resto.

What is it, The Dating Game? no, no The Newlyweds.

Congratulations Mike, 3000 Vettes must be a world record. The second 3000 will be a lot easier.

Congratulations Mike on number 3000! Great story and pictures. I think he made a great choice with the Lime Rock Green.

2nd 3000? Hadn't thought about that...let's do one at a time and smell the roses while we are all on the right side of the turf.

Congratulations Mike. In all my dealings with you' your enthusiasm for this brand has shone through and I have no doubt this has helped you reach this huge milestone.

Also, that E-type in British racing green is a beauty. But then, I'm biased
