The last couple of weeks went by like a blink. I decided to share some delivery pictures and a funny story or two. I will be attending Corvettes of Carlisle in Carlisle, PA next Friday and Saturday the 22nd and 23rd of August. If you have never attended...it's a must do bucket list item. I have been attending every year since 1978. The Fairgrounds are 90+(still growing) acres of pure Corvettes, Corvette parts and Corvette people.

In no particular order of deliveries and days...

~This Gentleman forgot his checkbook and sent his wife back home to retrieve it...We told him it was no problem to mail it but he wanted to complete the transaction...so he stood guard of his new Torch Red and Kalahari Convt.



~Young gal called up from South Carolina and couldn't wait to get her hands on this new Stingray cpe in Yellow with Red interior, 1LT and just what she wanted. She had an open trailer pick it up the other day.







~Saturday the 9th... the Gaithersburg Corvette Club held their annual Corvette show Sponsored by Criswell Chevrolet at our dealership. Approx 80 Corvettes attended the Fun Show. I was in NY City attending my Nephew's wedding on Friday Eve and rushed back Saturday leaving the Bronx at 5am with my wife and daughter and I was at work before 10am.



~Monday the 11th I drove up to Neptune, NJ (2 miles from the Jersey Shore) to play Golf in the National College Wrestling Hall of Fame Golf Outing. Left at 5am Monday morning...drove 4 hrs...ate lunch and played in the Tourney...after the banquet drove 4 hrs home...long day but was awarded a nice memento. My College and International Wrestling days are long over but it's nice to get together with all the old Wrestlers, Coaches and Ref's.





~Ray and his wife from Berlin, MD factory ordered this Silver and Red beauty with 3LT...They were thrilled seeing it for the first time as they loved the color combo chosen.



~Can you say Birthday present? James from Shelby Twp, Michigan called me a couple weeks ago and was excited to see that I had a Limerock Green Z51 Convt with all the equipment he wanted. Plycon delivered it to his doorstep and I don't think he needed a phone to relay his excitement. The perfect birthday gift as he puts it.









~Kurt from Homewood, Illinois honed in on our inventory and pulled the trigger on this Cyber Gray with Gray Top and gray interior Z51 Convt with Auto trans, Nav, CF Instrument panel, Mag ride, Chrome wheels, 2LT and much more. One call and he knew it was the right Stingray for him and Plycon shipped to his driveway.







~This Arctic White Convt Z51 didn't last long in stock. One call from the PA Gentleman and he was riding in his car!



~Another Arctic White with Red got picked up by a MD resident and he could not have been happier. Perma Grin the whole way home.





~Paul from Davidsonville, MD factory ordered his Limerock Green Cpe just the way he wanted. He went to a Porsche and BMW dealership first and got turned off by the sales reps and when he landed at my desk we took one test drive and the rest was history. As I write this he is taking a Summer Road trip from Maryland to Maine and back.









~If anyone wanted to see what 2009 Jetstream Blue looks like next to 2014 Laguna Blue..here is a good picture. Much different in person.



~Michael and his wife from New Oxford, PA factory ordered their loaded Crystal Red with Adrenaline Red cpe. Both were blown away at how gorgeous this Stingray looked like in person. They traded in two C5's, a 2001 Z06 in Black and a 2004 Lemans Blue Corvette.











:flag:~If you live in a 500 mile radius of Prescott Arizona you may want to think about attending their Annual Corvette Show held in the town of Prescott. See flyer below. :woohoo:



~The Summer of Corvette is almost over but the excitement of the Stingray continues. ..as it should...especially with the all new Z06 expected to be released January of 2015.

Don't forget the Corvette wave!:thumbs:

Love it Mike, especially the stories. Love all of the cars, but the Gray metallic with the gray top especially caught my eye, as I had not seen that combo. Really liked it. The guy with the checkbook also hit my funny bone. We had a check book experience too when we purchased ours. The wife wasn't used to writing a check that large, heck we barely even write checks anymore with automatic withdrawal. Anyway it took her three checks to get it correct and she even had our dealer double check it to make sure it was correct. The next day the dealer called me at work and told me she only signed it "Sally", no last name! Well we had a chuckle over it and after work we went back up to the dealership and added the last name to the check. :)

I agree!

Great job Mike. Now all we need to do is get that Velocity Yellow Z06 on the way and I'll be complete. :)
You are a bit biased....Yellow Z06 is slated to be at the Prescott Corvette show. Sept 27th.

That is correct. I wrote Four Stingray orders that day.

Mike, great stories and pictures. it must be cool to watch people see their new C7 masterpiece for the first time, the neighbors thought I was crazy running around mine when it was off loaded in front of my house.
