Default 11/25/18 Elkhart Lake Blue ZR1 delivery and many others~Mike Furman at Criswell *****

~I can only hope that everyone had a Thanksgiving weekend that involved safe travels. I'm not a big fan of traffic (who is) but driving during
the Holidays is something that I stopped doing decades ago. I stayed busy at work answering countless Mid Engine emails along with
C7 questions and factory orders. Have a question? Email [email protected] Want to talk about your next Corvette?
Call my desk direct line 301-212-4420. It's that simple.




~First Elkhart Lake Blue ZR1 Delivery Nationwide? Could be as Bill C. Of Great Mills, Maryland placed his Factory order with me so that he could get the color that closely matched his 2015 Laguna Blue Z06 that he bought from me a few years ago. He actually put his deposit down for the unknown at that time ZR1 3 years ago!! Bill will also be attending the March 11/12 ZR1 Corvette Furman Driving school in Nevada just like when he took the Z06 Driving school with me. Bill ordered his Elkhart Lake Blue ZR1 with Gray Comp Seats with the microfiber inserts, 3ZR Pkg, Chrome Wheels, Chrome badges, Auto trans, ZTK Performance Pkg and Performance Air Intake. This is one must see stunning Corvette. In Bill's own words..."Again, thanks so much! Car drives like a dream, the auto transmission, shifts are very “crisp”. Hope you and your family had a happy Thanksgiving."


















Bill even brought me a nice bottle of wine!


~Robert and Melissa of Elizabeth, PA(Pittsburgh area) called me 5 weeks ago and arranged an appt. to come visit me and see my inventory of 110+ New Corvettes. They test drove a few Corvettes and decided to place their order for a Long Beach Red 2019 CHEVROLET Grand Sport Corvette Cpe. Their new Corvette arrived in 5 weeks! Friday they were in and out in under 45 minutes and headed the 200 miles home before traffic gets heavy. Equipment list: body color roof and transparent top, CF hood stinger, CF painted mirrors, Auto trans, Black Wheels and 2LT Pkg. Their 12 yr old son Zach got to ride home in the passenger seat!
In Bob's own words..."Thank you Mike "Corvette Furman"! What an incredible experience from beginning to end! First class all the way!"









~Dustin W. Of Duarte, California contacted me 10 weeks ago to factory order his dream Corvette. We arranged for his Corvette to be drop shipped in nearby Chino, California and last week he took Courtesy delivery of his Elkhart Lake Blue 2019 Grand Sport Cpe. Equipment list: CF painted ground effects Pkg, CF badge Pkg, 7 spd manual trans, Black Wheels, 2LT Pkg and Navigation/PDR. Great new color that is being ordered a lot lately. This is a great combo with the Black Wheels and ground effects! In Dustin's own words..."Thank you for your excellent customer service and professionalism."



~Others that left the yard...

Shadow Gray ZR1 Convt.



Off to Idaho...Loaded 2019 Watkins Glen Gray Z06 Cpe.






~The Frank Class Corvette Barn find and throwback section...post up which is your favorite.




















































































Have a great week!

The new Elkhart Lake Blue is stunning. Shadow Grey is sharp too.
My choice for the throw back picture this week.

Thank you Mike for another wonderful Sunday delivery thread! I really like the backstories of new Corvette deliveries. You continue to sell and sell more C7’s.

Also enjoyed all the pictures of the “older” Corvettes. So much fun to relive those memories. I agree with Thunder22, that this is a super special one.




Thank you Mike!

Thanks for another great week Mike. Congratulations to all of the new owners.
I really like the new blue.
Was the new Suburban / Tahoe that you delivered this week a special package?

Hello Mike,

Some great looking Vettes left the yard this week. I always like seeing Vettes that people buy.

Happy Holidays.

I will go with this one this week.

My favorite pic has to be the green 1972 coupe. Runner-up is the dusty 1978 (?) "Official Pace Car" Corvette coupe.

As for the new ELB color, I like it a lot. Maybe I should have waited two more years to order my 'Vette. Nah; I am still happy with my Torch Red 2017 Stingray.

Have a great day, Mr. Furman!!

Thanks Mike for another week of pictures and stories!

Congrats. to all the new owners, Corvettes and other models too! Pretty cool that the SUV was a Callaway equipped model too.

The new Elkhart Blue and Shadow Gray colors really go well with the C7 generation body style...…………. both are great choices for anyone.

Favorite photo would be the blue 427 convertible.

I believe the show sign says it all...original owner still owns it. Bought in South Amboy, NJ...Briggs Chevrolet July 1972.

The thing that gets me is that it was never registered!
