~Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic production began Oct 1st and this past Tuesday I received our first Corvette sporting that color.
Saturday I took it up to clean up for preparation to ship out as it's going to a customer in Oklahoma. I'm
anxious to see it clean and in the Sun. Heck the customer is probably anxious to have it in his driveway. As I have stated before I
sell 80% of my sales to out of state customers. Elkhart Lake Blue is as close to Laguna Blue as you can get and ironically we had three Laguna Blue Corvettes
in for oil changes that same day so I snapped a pic to compare. One of the many advantages at working at a large Corvette dealer
is viewing first hand the old and the new generation Corvettes on an every day basis....which gets me in trouble as I am sure my 19th Corvette is headed to my own driveway within the year.
Are you looking for your next Corvette? Call my desk direct line 301-212-4420 or email me at [email protected] Check out my Corvette dedicated web site www.corvettefurman.com
(On vacation October 17-22)








~Big Corvette Show in Ocean City, MD this past Friday/Saturday and the Free State Corvette Club always does a great job.
They raise money for Spina Bifida each year...to the tune of close to $60,000! So give them a hand everyone.





Rick and his son looking for his next Corvette.




~Chuck S. Of Sewell, New Jersey called me up last week asking for a sight unseen trade value on his 2015 Velocity Yellow Z51 Cpe with 12,000 miles. Chuck picked from stock a 2019 Racing Yellow Grand Sport Cpe with 3LT Pkg.
This is Chuckís 4th Corvette and itís equipped with: Yellow stitching, Yellow calipers, CF hood stripe, CF badge Pkg, Auto trans, Black Wheels, Black mirrors and much more!
Saturday he made the 140 mile drive down and was here less than an hour and headed home to New Jersey.






~Christine J. And her son Tom took the 240 mile drive down from Cliffside Park, New Jersey as they picked out this new 2019 Grand Sport Cpe from stock. Tuesday I gave them a sight unseen trade value on their 2018 GMC Sierra crew cab and Thursday they drove home their new 2019 Arctic White Grand Sport with Adrenaline Red interior. Equipment list includes : Auto trans, Red seat belts, Black Wheels, Red calipers, Black mirrors, CF Instrument panel, Navigation/PDR and 2LT Pkg. Their new Corvette will share time at their home in Chandler, AZ as well as New Jersey.






~David and Karen J. Of Denver, North Carolina called me to special order a new 2019 Z06 Convt in Long Beach Red with Kalahari interior. This is their 5th Corvette.
Equipment list includes: Visible carbon fiber hood, auto transmission, 2LZ Pkg and Red seatbelts. They drove up 425 miles this week and stayed overnight and headed back home in their brand new Corvette.






~Sandy K. Of Warren, New Jersey called me up 7 weeks ago to place his Factory order for a 2019 Shadow Gray/ Red Grand Sport Cpe. I gave him a sight unseen trade value for his 2,000 mile 2017 WGG Grand Sport Cpe
and the deal was done. After the order was placed we actually met late August in Carlisle. This New 19 GS in Shadow Gray with Adrenaline Red interior really pops! 2LT Pkg, Red calipers and Auto trans rounds out
the equipment list. A quick 215 miles down in the am and returned home even quicker. Sandy loves the Grand Sport ride!

Good morning Mike.

Another nice week of sales.

Congratulations to the new owners. The new blue one going to Oklahoma makes at least two Vettes you have sold in Oklahoma this year.

Have a great week.

Thanks for sharing all of the Vette photos. This one is my favorite from the photos this week.

Your are right Mike. I can't wait to get it home in Oklahoma. The color is fantastic. Should really look good with the carbon fiber components. Will be talking to you on Monday. Thanks for everything to make the whole experience the best car purchase ever.

Great shot of that red Split Window. The SWC has to be the most photogenic Corvette ever; especially pics from the rear. Great thread as usual. Thanks Mike.

Another fantastic post so many greats pics and commentary. I especially liked the pics of the Big Corvette Show in Ocean City

Chuck S. Of Sewell Corvette...IMO the blackout option (black badging, black mirrors, black wheels) looks the best on yellow Vettes. That is saying something since Iím an old school guy.....chrome.
