Mike, have you delivered any gray C7 verts with Red top and interior?? I would think that combo would be fantastic.

Way too many great shots this week to pick a favorite so I'll just settle for the picture of you standing next to your friend with those two gorgeous ZR1s in the background. Awesome. Thanks for another great thread Mike. They never disappoint.

Thanks Mike for another wonderful Corvette delivery thread. Glad you are continuing to sell more C7s at an amazing pace, e..g, four new complete Corvette truckloads being delivered to you in just one week.

These are my favorites this week.

Thank you.

Always love seeing these weekly posts by @Mike [email protected] of deliveries! Seeing all the new deliveries makes me wish I hadn't just bought a used Z51 and would have gotten a GS from him. Hmm, wonder what trade in value would be?

I had the exact same Farrah poster in my room during my teen years.....as did most every one of my friends. I had another one of her too, but I think it had a blue background behind it. A few years later, Morgan Fairchild ended up on my wall. Of course, Farrah passed on - and I have no idea how Morgan Fairchild is doing these days. I figure she must be pushing 70 by now.

I think ever boy my age had that iconic poster of Farrah in his bedroom. And, now I see she drove a 4 speed car. That makes it even better.

BTW, I can attest to the fact that picking up your new Corvette in Mike's office is a great experience. I'm quite sure you get as much personal attention from Mike as you get at the Museum. My wife couldn't believe it when I said we were buying from Mike, and driving up to get the car. Now, she tells people that ask she sees another trip to Criswell's in our future. Can you say "C8"?

Regarding the pictures this week, there are so many good ones in there. The tuxedo C1 on the golf course is probably the best. First runner-up is likely the green C3 (1972?) shown from the upper left front. Second runner-up is shot of the the two blue Corvettes (a C3 and a C2) parked in the driveway next to a house. Honorable mention goes to the two bright yellow Corvettes parked side by side, a C1 and a C7. So many beautiful pictures this week. Kudos to Frank also!!

The Ted Bundy VW photo was interesting too. It must have been the mid-1970s because of the white 1974 Dodge Monaco patrol car in front of it. There is also a 1973 Dodge Polara police car behind it.

Thanks, Mr. Furman, for another batch of great pictures!

P.S. The saddest ones are the very old & neglected C1 and the wrecked yellow 'Vette on the highway.

I think the Farrah Corvette is a mixed bag. It is cool that she actually owned it, but it is just a tad on the tacky or gaudy side for me. Still, I sure would never have turned down a ride in it - even if I was just 12 years old in 1977.

I forgot about Morgan Fairchild, but yes she and Blondi were also pretty popular on the walls in the late 70s

My favorite would be the picture of LBJ's daughter Lucy's vette at the White House, while she and the first lady are at LBJ's sides.
More about this vette, and another pic at this link.
