  • The 18* Corvettes that I have owned over the last 40 years...Mike Furman

    ~I am always asked what was my favorite car that I have owned?...well thats like saying which kid is your favorite? But I will list out in model year order
    the list of 18 Corvettes that I have owned over the years along with color combo and transmission.

    1959 Convt Tuxedo Black/Red int Black top Stick shift
    1961 Convt Tuxedo Black/Red int Black top Stick shift
    1967 Convt Marina Blue/ Blue int Black top Stick shift
    1967 Cpe Marina Blue/White int Stick shift...>>>"CURRENTLY Own"<<<
    1988 Cpe Medium Blue/ Blue int Auto "Owned by Zora Duntov's private Secretary of 25 years" Plenum was signed by Zora!
    1988 Cpe 35th Anniv White/White int #131 Auto
    1992 Cpe Bright Red/ Black int Stick Shift
    1992 Convt Quasar Blue/ White int white top Auto
    1993 Convt Torch Red/ White int White top Auto
    1999 Convt Magnetic Red/ Black int Black top Stick
    2005 Cpe Precision Red/Black int Stick
    2005 Convt Millenium Yellow/Black int Black top Stick
    2006 Cpe Z06 Lemans Blue/Ebony with Titanium Gray int Stick

    2015 Cpe Z06 Laguna Blue/ Dk Gray int Stick
    2016 Cpe Z06 Laguna Blue/ Twilight Blue int Stick

    ~14 of the 18 were Manual Transmissions...and 9 of the 18 were Convt's! Both of those stats I did not know until today when I made this list.<<<
    8 of the 18 were Blue and 5 were Red.

    *18* ...I am sure there are many more Corvettes to own in my lifetime.

    I have been selling Corvette's as a Corvette Hobbyist since 3 weeks before my 18th birthday in 1978! So I have 40 yrs of Corvette experience.
    The Indy 500 Pace Car Corvette is what got my interest up in Corvettes...yet the 3rd Generation Corvette is the only Generation that I have never owned!

      Good read. Some great Corvettes on that list. LMB C6 Z06 - - there aren't very many of those. Your current Z and its blue - man what a great color. They need to bring that back.

        I agree, that Blue interior on the C7 is really cool. I heard rumors that Brownstone may make a comeback someday.

        There are so many good colors, it creates a dilemma. My current car is a 2010 Velocity Yellow. After I bought it I saw a stunning blue C6 Z06 for sale that almost made me change my mind. Yesterday I was looking at a red C7 thinking what a nice color it was. Decisions........
        2020 C8 Corvette
        Shadow Grey Metallic on Black
        2LT, Z51 + MRC
        Spectra Grey Tridents
        Carbon flash mirrors and spoiler

        I'm a Rat and so is my car! (a reference to the Chinese astrological calendar).

          Now you know how I feel...every day I go into work...my office overlooks 140 Corvettes in stock and the inbound truck deliveries come three times weekly...teasing me every moment with different colors etc.

            My first was Le Mans Blue, 2nd black, 3rd Shark Grey, 4th Long Beach Red. I missed out on 3 colors that I really liked - Admiral Blue, Watkins Glen Grey and Velocity Yellow (which I think is closer to the Corvette Racing Yellow than the the actual color called Corvette Racing Yellow).
