Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for March 13th

Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvettes to his customers who come from all across the country to work with the nation’s top individual Corvette seller.

It was a fun week for Mike as well as his customers who are seen in the photos below picking up their new dream Corvettes at the Maryland dealership, the National Corvette Museum, and even in the driveways of their own homes. Also this week, Mike catches up with a former NBA star and fellow Terrapin graduate and he shares photos of a really, really cool gift he got for helping out a customer. Finally, Mike has put together a fun collection of throwbacks and vintage photos so scroll to the end and then leave a comment telling us your favorite for the week!

~I received an incredible gift Friday in the mail from Doug Fehan. Check out his Race suit from the 2016 season. Doug and I first met at the 2011 24 hrs of Lemans race. Last Spring we enjoyed a round of Golf together in Bowling Green, KY with Kirk Bennion and a Corvette friend/customer of mine Ken Gray. Doug appreciates all that I do for the National Corvette Museum hence todays pkg! “Doug Fehan led Corvette Racing to 14 team championships, 13 manufacturers and drivers championships and 113 race wins in more than two decades as the team’s program director.” Doug is currently the Brand Ambassador and does a fantastic job. See you in April Doug, at the Corvette Bash in Bowling Green, KY April 27-29. Help Support the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY!

~April 4th/5th …Only 4 seats left of 54 for Corvette Furman’s Spring edition of the Corvette Owners School! Call Brooke x225 or Donna x232 to reserve your seat at Ron Fellows Performance Driving School in Pahrump, Nevada. I will be there all week April 2nd-8th but only 4 of 54 seats (3 different classes) remain so call asap 1-800-391-6891. If you’ve purchased a new C8 Corvette within the last year then GM pays 60% of your bill so the cost to you is only $1,000!! That includes two days of track time/class work with 7 professional instructors, luxury condo on site and food. Incredible deal…incredible place. I will have 3 more classes the first week of October too…so stay tuned.

~Buck Williams played Basketball at Univ of Maryland when I wrestled for the Univ of Maryland Terps. He gets his truck serviced at Criswell Chevrolet so we took a quick picture and talked about the old days in the ACC. He also played ball with an old high school friend of mine, John Bilney. Buck is still close with John and got a good laugh remembering the past. In the NBA… “Forward Buck Williams played 17 seasons for 3 teams. His career averages were 12.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 1,307 regular season games. Williams was selected to play in 3 All-Star Games.”

C8 deliveries this week throughout the USA.

~James and Jana A. of Clinton TWP, Michigan found me on the internet when they bought their Shadow gray 2019 GS Convt and traded in their shark gray 2015 Z51 Convt. This time they factory ordered a Red Mist 2022 Corvette convertible and took delivery this past week at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. As luck would have it their new Corvette was built while they were vacationing in South Carolina so we fed ex’d the paperwork to their vacation spot in South Carolina and registered the Corvette in Michigan while they took delivery in Kentucky of the Corvette they bought from me in Maryland! Some people don’t understand the importance of experience to pull this type of transaction off but Jim and Jana do and they will also join me in October out at Spring Mountain race track for the Corvette Furman driving school just like they did a few years ago. Equipment list: 3LT, CF painted Nacelles/roof, front lift, CF instrument cluster, magnetic ride, edge red calipers, spectra gray wheels, low rear spoiler, black interior with red stitching and much more. Two of the finest folks you could ever meet and I’m glad I will see them three more times this year. Corvette Bash in late April at the Museum in KY, Also at the Carlisle, PA event and in Nevada in October. Ask Jim the story if you ever run into him about how he ran into my Maryland golf friends down in Florida!!! Hilarious coincidence.

Note from Jana:

“Thank you, Mike … you’re the best! We really appreciate all your help (and accommodating our travel schedule!). Our little red Corvette is truly a dream car! Looking forward to seeing you soon!!”

Note from Jim:

“Mike you are absolutely the best. Thanks for all you did for us. The car is stunning and true dream to drive. I look forward to seeing you at Ron Fellows…and hopefully at the Bash in April. Clocked out my break-in about 5 miles from home! Take care, all the best from Jana and me.”

Note from Kevin, their son:

“Mike, as you’re known to us in the family – the smile on my dad’s face tells the whole story. It’s been the talk of the year, from the original order to the days creeping along before final delivery. As the loyalty goes round, it starts with the level of service your team has passionately offered and successfully executed through the series of interactions. If the day comes when it’s my turn, there’s only be one dealer in my phone to get the call.

Thank you for this spectacular opportunity and being such an impact in my parents’ Corvette journey. Cheers!!”

“Attached are two pictures of my car when I picked it up. It is even better than I thought. This is going to be fun.

Probably even smoother!”
Best always,
John H. Of Freeland, WA
And then his GM survey/review. “I had the great pleasure to work with Mike Furman on my corvette build and order. He was absolutely excellent. Kept me informed of the progress of my order, facilitated its delivery and was always prompt responding to my questions. When working with a dealer that is 3,000 miles away, it is reassuring to have someone like Mike to work with. I would highly recommend Mike Furman and Criswell Chevrolet to anyone considering purchasing a new vehicle.“
