2007 Corvette Z06 Victory Red on Black

| Customer Testimonials | Oct 28, 2014

Woodinville, Wa.
2007 Corvette Z06 “Victory Red on Black”

I’m 33 years old and have now owned 38 different cars, my new 2007 Z06 being lucky number 38. Of this array of vehicles, 3 have actually been Corvette Z06s… I typically go through cars every 6 months to 1 year. The point of me explaining this is that I’ve purchased, sold and traded many cars (and on a fairly regular basis) and I have to say that Joe is truly the most forthcoming and easy going person I’ve ever dealt with in a dealership, period – Both of which are qualities that are very hard to come by in this industry. Furthermore, the guy knows his Corvettes and knows how to acquire the best examples of these amazing cars available. I’m as meticulous as they come and even I think the cars he finds are incredibly clean. That being said, if the guy tells you the car’s in great condition, you can rest assured that it’s the truth! Bottom line, if you’re looking for a Corvette of any kind, save yourself some time and a lot of frustration, and just give this guy a call – You won’t be disappointed!

Once again, thank you Joe for being such a good friend to all your Corvette buddies and taking such good care of us. The 2015 Stingray was something Mike had always dreamed of. Thanks for making that happen (thanks for my own key too). You truly care and treat all of us like long time friends.

2003 Chevy Corvette Coupe “Anniversary Red on Shale”

Once again, I purchased another Corvette from Joe Harvey at Speedway Chevrolet. Not that I blow through Corvettes, but they come and go in my life and I’ve loved each one of them. All purchased from Joe. This time, I wasn’t really looking, but Joe suggested I look at this rare 2003 50th Anniversary model and 24 hours later, it’s in my garage. What a fantastic experience. Joe provided all the right guidance and made the exploration and purchase experience a real joy. I can’t stress enough to all you Corvette fans, you really need to contact Joe, even if you are only remotely interested. Joe won’t finesse you into just any Corvette – - he actually will respect your timeframe and personal interests, yet still guide you to the right Corvette fit. Thanks Joe, for yet another great experience. I love this Vette!

2009 Corvette Coupe “Black on Black”

If you are looking to own a corvette, Joe Harvey is the one to talk to. From the first time I contacted Joe, he was extremely helpful and no pressure from the start. A few months lapsed in between when I first contacted him and when I finally decided to purchase. When it was time to get my corvette, I called him, and in fact he remembered me. I was indeed pleased and kinda shocked. Upon arriving at the dealership, he was very accommodating. We started to discuss what year, color, and options I was looking for. Once we settled on exactly what I was looking for, we started the financing and after a while got everything I was looking for out of that. I signed papers and went home with a smile and a content feeling. Everyone should meet Joe, he is great at finding you the exact corvette your heart desires. So once again Joe thank you very much for the corvette I know own. – Joseph

2005 Corvette Roadster Velocity Yellow on Black

2005 Corvette Roadster “Velocity Yellow on Black”

I am a retired high school teacher whose dream has always been to own a Corvette. I finally talked my wife into agreeing with the idea, and I spent months searching for the right car when I found a yellow 2005 convertible advertised on Craig’s List by Joe Harvey who works for Speedway Chevrolet in Monroe, Washington. Included in the primary picture of the car were about a dozen additional pictures showing both the interior and the exterior of the car. Generally when someone includes that many pictures, they have nothing to hide, and indeed the car is as pristine as the photos indicated, and it is everything and more than Joe described it to be. Joe and I exchanged several phone calls and e-mails before I actually traveled to Monroe to see the Corvette for myself. Joe met me with a smile and a firm handshake, took a considerable amount of time to show me every detail of the car, and it is everything he advertised it to be. One of the things I really liked about dealing with Joe was the fact that he let me take the car out for the initial test drive by myself, something I have never had a car salesman let me do. Driving alone, I could concentrate on the car, listen for anything that might not sound right, focus on how the car handled and drove, all without a salesman interrupting me with a sales pitch. Joe then cordially took my wife out for her first ride in a convertible.

Joe handled the negotiations process for the price of the car very professionally without any uncomfortable pressure to buy, always with respect for my wife and me, and always cordial. I have worked as a professional negotiator, and Joe was the most considerate “adversary” that I have faced. I have dealt with car salesmen in the past who would tell me what a huge mistake I was making if I did not take their deal, but we met with none of that from Joe, and, in fact, the deal we made was actually about $50 less than I finally offered.

I was very impressed with Joe through the whole process. He was honest about everything; the car was everything and more than he said it was; and since the deal was closed, he has responded to any questions I have sent to him by e-mail immediately. Since this was my first Corvette, I had and have a lot to learn, and Joe has always been available to help me out with any questions I have had about the car and where to buy any Corvette specialty parts that I want to add to the car. Many car salesmen, once the deal is done and you have driven away, won’t even bother returning any messages, but Joe does not forget the people who buy from him. If I am ever in the market for a new Chevrolet, which I soon may be to replace my trade-in, I would not hesitate to give Joe a call and arrange to deal with him.

As an afterthought, as part of the deal on the car, I bought a paint and interior protective treatment as I always do when I buy a new car…they are well worth the money in my experience…, and so I had to deal with Speedway Chevrolet’s service department. They, also, gave me first rate treatment, supplying me with an overnight “loaner” while the work was being done on my car. My whole experience with Speedway Chevrolet, I must say, was very positive.

Buckley, Wa.
2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe “Crystal Red on Black”

Laurie and I feel we are becoming part of the family here at Speedway Chevrolet and Joe is our Godfather. He can make you an offer “you just can’t refuse“ !! Back in May of 2010 we were looking to trade our 1979 corvette for a newer model and I really had my eye on the 2010 Grand Sport. There were cars out there, but I wanted a Crystal Red one. No one could seem to find the gem I was looking for. One turned up at another dealership and Joe went the extra mile to make this deal come through for me. We were so grateful to Joe and everyone there at the dealership. When the new body style came out in 2014, I was totally impressed with the car and Laurie and I decided we had to try and get one. We looked around and could not find the car that was right for us. We decided to order one, but we needed to trade in our Grand Sport that only had 891 miles on it and no one we talked to could give us the deal we knew was right for us. I gave Joe a call and again “a deal we could not refuse”. We always know we can put our trust in Joe.

Thank you Joe ( The Godfather of Corvettes )

2007 Corvette Coupe Monterey Red on Black

| Customer Testimonials | Aug 19, 2014

2007 Corvette Coupe “Monterey Red on Black”

In my opinion, the C-6  is the most impressive Corvette that has ever been produced (possibly excluding the 2014). The problem was that our driveway is not Corvette friendly and when I tried to put one in the garage it really scraped the bottom badly. The C-5 didn’t have that problem so I just thought we would have to live without my favorite Corvette. Our C-5 was the 2004 Commemorative addition which we bought from Joe and Speedway. I loved the 04 and it gave us great service, but my heart was always wanting a C-6.Well Joe and Speedway Chevrolet came through again.  We are now the proud owner of a 2007 Monterey Red (also my favorite color) and it didn’t scrape coming up the driveway.  With the help of Joe, we figured out that the suspension in the 07 was just a little higher than previous C-6′s that I had tried. As much as I will miss my blue 04, I really am happier with the new Corvette and think it is beautiful  to look at and drive. One thing I want to say here is that this is the third Corvette I have purchased from Joe and Speedway. In my opinion Joe is the “go to” guy when it comes to Corvettes.  He is not only knowledgeable but makes sure that the Corvettes he has on the lot are the finest he can find.  The one we purchased looks as good as a brand new one on the showroom floor. In conclusion, Joe made the whole purchasing process a pleasant and a fun experience and YES… we are still great friends.
