~This week (last week of Jan) is when I usually set up my schedule for the Corvette Events that I want to attend thru out the year. So much going on in the Corvette World that I need to choose wisely.
I am sure there will be several Corvette events that will come up that will be added to my schedule below...also when GM announces the next generation Corvette could determine other events. Stay tuned.
-March 9-13 I will be doing the ZR1 driving class with 12 of my ZR1 customers out at Spring Mountain Race Track in Pahrump, Nevada.
-April 23-26 Corvette Bash in Bowling Green, KY. National Corvette Museum
-July mid month...possibly back out to Spring Mountain Race Track Pahrump, Nevada
-August 21-24 Corvettes at Carlisle in Carlisle, PA
-Sept 29-Oct 2 Spring Mountain Corvette driving school with 20 of my Corvette customers. Pahrump, Nevada
From last Saturday to this Saturday I wrote 36 deals...so I stay busy even during the Winter months. I have a dozen or so off site deliveries this week so I will post them up as I get pictures.
*Elkhart Lake Blue was very popular this week!!

Sean F. Of Leesburg, Virginia has ordered many Corvettes from me over the last 5 years and this past Monday in 10 degree weather he picked up his Elkhart Lake Blue 2019 Grand Sport Cpe. Sean ordered 7 spd manual trans,
blade silver full length dual racing stripes, Black interior,1LT Pkg and Navigation/PDR. Look for Sean on some tracks up and down the East Coast! I called Sean in the am that his GS had just arrived and he was at Criswell
by 1pm for delivery!

Greg B. Of Georgetown, Indiana decided to drive the 650 miles from his home to Criswell in Maryland one December Saturday to see me about placing his Corvette Factory order. Greg took Corvette Museum
Delivery yesterday of his brand new Elkhart Lake Blue 2019 Corvette Grand Sport Cpe. Equipment list: Jet Black Interior, Auto trans, chrome wheels, 2LT Pkg and much more. He wrote me this morning that he had a blast
at the Corvette Museum and got home safely!

I had this picture taken when Greg arrived at Criswell after his 650 mile ride to visit me and place his order.

~Tyler F. Of Chapin, South Carolina called me last week as he looked at my inventory on my corvette dedicated website(CorvetteFurman.com) for the Grand Sport he wanted to own. Tyler chose an Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic ‘19 GS Corvette Cpe
with Black Interior. We Fed Ex’d back and forth the Paperwork and this week Plycar Trucking will enclose trailer it down to Tyler’s home in South Carolina.
Equipment list: 7 spd manual trans, CF badge Pkg, Black Wheels, CF painted mirrors, Navigation/PDR, GS Heritage Pkg and 2LT Pkg.

~Chris H. of Des Moines, Iowa bought a new Corvette from me back in 2016 and last week he picked out of stock a Crush Orange ‘19 Camaro ZL1 Cpe to be shipped to his new home as of next Friday,
Melbourne, Florida!! His new stick shift ZL1 Camaro will be the perfect Sports Car for the clean flat pavement in Florida. Crush Orange is a new color for 2019 on the Camaro.

Others that left the yard...

The Frank Class Corvette Barn Find/Throwback section...post up which is your favorite.

No one believed that I had Gasoline in my blood until they saw this Halloween picture!

Have a great week!

Thank you Mike for another wonderful Sunday morning thread. Great sales week you had! GM has got to love you for selling the amount of C7’s you keep heading to happy customers.

Really enjoyed the new delivery backstories and the pictures of older Corvettes. Here is a true 1-of-1. Thank you very much Mike!

THANK YOU Mike for the great pictures and stories this week!

Congrats. for writing those deals this past week, many entire dealerships would be thrilled with that amount, so it really shows the fruits of your efforts and commitment to the Corvette community. Something you should be very proud of, to have earned the trust of so many over the course of time.

Congrats. to all the new owners too, a really great looking collection headed to their respective owners homes.

A couple of photos stood out this week, although all of them were superb!

How could anyone not appreciate this C2...……………………

and for the C7R's at Daytona...………………….

Have a great week ahead...………………

Wow, I just LOVE looking at these nostalgic photos!

Since the '63 Split Window endeared me to Corvette, I love seeing all those pictures. But this is a truly iconic photo....
