For a lot of car enthusiasts there tends to be a certain brand or make that “is their life.” We know many fans of Mopar, Ferrari fanatics and plenty of Porschephiles, but in most cases those cars actually have very little to do with a person’s life or well being, beyond fascination.
That doesn’t hold true to Mike Furman. When he says Corvettes are his life, he means it. From the age of 17 when he started working at Malcom Konner Auto Group in New Jersey, Mike has made his living putting Corvettes in other people’s garages. If you ever wanted to get into Corvette sales, Konner was the place. From the early ‘60s until the family sold the dealership in 1991, Konner was the world’s largest Corvette dealer.
