Default Is Orange the new Black? Delivery post 2/11/18 Pic heavy~Mike Furman at Criswell*****

~The first truckload of Sebring Orange Tint coat has certainly created a stir in the Corvette world. I sent out a mass email to my Corvette customers and those that live in close proximity to Criswell came for a first hand look. Yesterday(Saturday) I wrote 8 Factory orders and delivered 4 others...of the 8 Corvette orders 5 are Sebring Orange. I also spoke with 3-4 customers on the phone that will be ordering and 2 of those will be ordered in Sebring Orange as well. Now clearly it's a brand new color and enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for a new Orange to choose from so I am sure it will still be a 5+/-%. Which means 5% or less of the total Corvette production will be painted Sebring Orange. In comparison Black,
Torch Red and White are all in the 16-18% range of total production. Speaking of new colors...expect Watkins Glen Gray to be replaced by a new Gray in May....and a new Blue sometime in the Fall to be released.
*2019 Corvette production began last week...I sell and deliver Nationwide...next week I have 5 new Corvettes being drop shipped to California, Utah, Florida, Oregon and Ohio along with a few Museum deliveries being scheduled. Call my desk direct line 301-212-4420 or email [email protected] and I will show you how seamless I can make the whole process.

~2019 ZR1's spotted in the Michigan snow...GM execs testing in real world situation. Retail production ZR1's begin in March and most likely be released in April. This will be a slow roll out much like watching Molasses pour.





I am sure these two have snow tires!



*Spotlight on one delivery...(The first two Sebring Orange Corvette deliveries I had were both Convt's and both in 15 degree weather...go figure.)

~Clay (Foosh) and his wife Lee Anne of Lothian, MD came by Thursday and for them...Orange is the new Black. Clay and I have known each other in the Corvette Forums of the World for at least a dozen years. Couple months ago Clay placed his factory order for a 2018 Z51 Convt in Sebring Orange and I gave him a sight unseen value on his 2014 Corvette Convt. Confirmed by GM...Only two Sebring Orange Z51 convt’s were produced for the 2018 model year and this is the only 7 Spd manual!Clay factory ordered a Z51 Convt with 7 Spd manual trans, magnetic ride control, Black wheels and 2LT Pkg!

In Clay's own words from his forum post..."With all the new car delivery excitement, I am remiss in stating what is I'm sure obvious to many here, but maybe not to many others. Ordering, buying, and taking delivery of a car from Mike Furman is a fantastic experience.

Not only does he know the product to an extraordinary degree, he makes it fun. I've purchased probably 60 vehicles over the years, and this was the most fun ever. My wife even had a blast, although I think she now has a crush on Mr. Furman. I knew something was up when she had taken one of the Furman posters that was in the trunk, and put it up on the garage refrigerator." Clay "Foosh"



























7 Sebring Orange arrived on one truckload...more to follow.













~Others that left the yard this week.



Evan is an Airline pilot and he was referred to me by another pilot (friend of mine) so he drove his Ford F150 down from Nashua, NH to trade it in on a new 2018 Equinox.













~The Frank Class Corvette Barn Find and Throwback section...post up which picture is your favorite.











































Original picture from 1963 showing a split window Corvette on the showroom floor.



Cool ad picture from '67.































































































































































*Have a great week!!

Thanks Mike for another week of great stories and pictures.

Congrats. to all the new owners, Corvettes and other models.

Really cool facts related to Foosh's Z51 convertible, really a great total package combination he now is driving!

Favorite photo would be the C1............... the start of the Corvette, that is the common bond to all here.

The 2019 MY is the 4th year that GM has offered Admiral Blue on the Corvette. That is a long time for any single blue flavor.

Thanks for another great thread, Mike! And congrats to Foosh for his new convertible too. And I'm with RKJ-I loved that picture of the red C1 too.

Good morning Mike. It looks like a very good week for sales.

Congratulations to Foosh on his new Vette.

Since I am a third generation Sooner grad, and our two main rivals' colors are orange, I could not buy a Sebring Orange vette. But it does look great on the Vettes.

As usual there were some great throwback photos. I liked this one of this brave young man coming back from Vietnam.

Default Konner C4

Agreed, had to go with the Malcolm Konner Special Edition C4. With Mike’s persistence and perseverance, Konner could soon be inducted into the NCM Hall of Fame.

A small detail, but the black C7 vert, next to the 2018 Foosh Sebring Orange vert on the launch pad at Criswell, has a gray top. That has to be a rare color combination as well.

That is Foosh's 2014 C7 Convt that he traded in and it has a black top.

Default Black top

Yup, took a second look and it is now obviously a black top.

I was focused on the photo you took from the top of the launch pad in front of your office looking down on both of the foosh C7’s. The sun was hitting the black vert at such an angle that it made it appear gray.

Interesting pic of the tread design on the Michelin tire, as well as the all weather testing of the 2019 ZR1’s in the snow.

No apparent “melting” of those Corvettes going on in harsh weather conditions!
