2010 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe Crystal Red on Black

2010 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe “Crystal Red on Black”

My love affair with the Corvette began before I was born. My Dad bought a new 1968 Vette and shortly after met and married my Mom. With baby on the way, yours truly, the car was sold for a, wait for it, VW Square Back. My own Vette experience would wait almost 40 years until 2008. I had just started dating this amazing girl when I purchased a used, one owner 2003 Anniversary Red coupe with low miles. A year later I married that girl and the Vette even made it into some of our wedding pictures.

After six wonderful years with the car the time seemed right to search for a follow up. In fact, timing was the key to it all. In less than 24 hours the next chapter as a Corvette owner had been written.

Interested in the 2010 Grand Sport, and checking around online at pricing and a local dealer, my wife suggested looping in her Dad on a Friday night. He had purchased his current Corvette from Joe Harvey at Speedway Chevrolet in Monroe and gave him a quick call. Joe told him a 2010 Grand Sport was due on site the next day. I called Joe later that night to confirm. The most interesting nugget, Joe noted the car had less than 1,000 miles on it. The next morning we drove to Monroe to check it out.

Arriving on site, we met Joe and he showed us the Grand Sport. WOW! The car was beautiful. I will never forget the speedometer reading, 891 miles. It still had that new car smell. It took a second to sink in, were we really sitting in this low mile 2010 Vette in 2014? Indeed we were. The test drive was fantastic. We drove home that night in our new car.

The experience with Joe was outstanding. Straight forward, knowledgeable, and dare I say honest for a car salesman. He is all of those things. Joe does know his Corvettes and exceeds his customer’s expectations. Joe is the man!

Hi Joe, We have purchased 5 Corvettes and this has been the cleanest used Corvette that I have purchased. Your knowledge far exceeds anyone we have worked with. You made us feel comfortable as we did not feel pressured and Karen enjoyed her hug at the end. Duane said where’s my hug? Ha ha!

Thanks again for an enjoyable experience.

 

2005 Corvette Roadster Victory Red on Black

2005 Corvette Roadster “Victory Red on Black”

Yes, Joe really does know Corvettes. But more than that, he cares about his customers and pays attention to their interests. Joe told me that he had an outstanding C6 convertible coming in that he thought would just fit my interest. I had been content with my black C5 convertible and had no thoughts of trading.
But the Victory Red C6 is really an outstanding car, and is more in line with my current interest and usage. So I bought the C6. It was fairly priced and as always no pressure about buying.
If you are considering a Corvette, do yourself a favor and talk with Joe.
Joe has certainly earned my trust, after buying those two Corvettes from him.

 

2009 Corvette Coupe Black on Black

2009 Corvette Coupe “Black on Black”

I was hesitant to buy from a dealer: I generally work with private sellers. But a friend of mine had a neighbor who had experience working with Joe, and said good things about him. He also said Speedway generally buys/sells Vettes that are a unique, have a story, and have been checked out. When I met Joe, he wasn’t pushy at all. Seemed generally interested in helping me find what I wanted, and though I had done my homework before showing up to view one of his cars, he was knowledgeable and helped me learn a few things I didn’t know. When it came to a test drive, he was remarkably trusting of me: never asked for some of the things other dealers do, handed me the keys, and said “have fun.” (I loved how easy he made it for me to just get in the car and go for a test drive.) When I came back, he didn’t push or “go for the close.” He just talked with me, answered all my questions (and there were many), and let me make my own decision about whether to buy or not.
I had a very positive sales experience with Joe, and as a result, I bought a car from him. For anyone considering the purchase of a Vette, I think Joe’s a great guy to visit with.

 

2003 50th Anniversary Corvette Roadster Anniversary Red on Shale

2003 Corvette Roadster “Anniversary Red on Shale”

I had been searching for a 50th anniversary red convertible 6 speed when I found my car at joeknowcorvettes.com I contacted Joe immediately and he emailed me back quickly with additional information and photos. It wasn’t convenient to view the car since I live 500 miles away in BC, but I felt reasonably confident buying the car sight-unseen. Joe did an excellent job of describing the car and “painted” me a clear picture of what I could expect.

Joe’s communication and service was excellent. He handled all the paperwork required to import the car into Canada and organized its delivery to my door in an enclosed trailer. The driver by the way, a fellow Corvette owner was prompt, courteous, and careful with our new car.

The entire process was a smooth and professional one, I would recommend Joe’s Corvettes to anyone in the market.

Thanks so much, John and Lynn Soriat

PS: This photo was taken in our driveway right after the car arrived. It’s probably the first and last time it will see snow.

2005 Corvette Coupe “Black on Black”

Joe Harvey is the man! I first met Joe when I swung in to check out a C6 that I had been dreaming about on line for about a month. When I arrived there was somebody there buying the car of my dreams… Joe called me that evening and said he had found the perfect car for me… I was a little skeptical after seeing some of the miss represented cars at some of the other car dealers… I talked my wife into another trek out see another car and we were both blown away by the car, it was exactly as Joe described! Joe knows corvettes! He worked up a very fair deal, processed all the paperwork and sent me home smiling ear to ear. Joe is a straight shooter and I will recommend him to all my friends! Thank you Speedway Chevrolet and Joe Harvey!

2006 Chevy Corvette Coupe “Victory on Black”

Hi, everyone, I wanna say Thank You to SPEEDWAY CHEVROLET and Joe Harvey’s staff. We purchased our Corvette from Joe Knows Corvettes. Feeling high pressure sales men was not the case at Speedway Chevrolet. We were encouraged to really test the car on the highway and city along with stop and go driving as well and we were also invited to show the car to my Mom who lives in Monroe. I’ve been dreaming of this car forever and Speedway went above and beyond to make us feel like family. As I pulled in from the test drive the car actually sold itself too me. With a smile on my face and my dream car on my mind I bought the car on the spot. The more I drive my car the more I LOVE IT. Shoot, even my friends bought a Corvette from Joe too!! Thank You SPEEDWAY CHEVROLET and JOE KNOWS CORVETTES because I’m driving and owning my dream car. I will surely recommend my friends to you JOE KNOWS CORVETTES!!!

Thank you truly Tear & Dave (TEAM FREAK MEGA MUDRACER)

2011 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport Crystal Red on Black

2011 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport “Crystal Red on Black”

I had decided not to trade Vette for a couple of reasons, one (1) wasn’t sure I wanted to go to the expense of upgrading to a new car and (2) I really loved my 03 Anniversary Convertible. But I decided to see Joe and look at the 2011 Grand Sport he had in stock anyway.

I found working with Joe was knowledgeable, easy and informal. I walked away (actually drove the Grand Sport) with a smile on my face knowing that I did the right thing. There was no pressure and I would recommend any of my friends visit Joe, even if they were just window shopping. Thanks Joe for a pleasurable experience.

2005 Corvette Coupe “Magnetic Red on Black”

I went to Speedway Chevrolet looking to test drive a new Camaro because I am a huge Camero fan seeing as I own a 1968 Camaro. I test drove the ZL1 and the car performed excellent but it just didn’t handle the way I liked and it wasn’t very comfortable. That is when Joe Harvey suggested that I test drive the Corvette and it was everything that I was looking for, it handles great and is so comfortable to drive. Joe was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions without pressuring me to buy anything, he just let the car sell itself. Overall my experience was wonderful. Joe and everyone at Speedway Chevrolet were so nice and walked me through every step of the car buying process. Its been a week now since I bought my Corvette and I am even more in love with it now then the day I drove it off the lot. Thank you so much to Joe and everyone that was involved in my car buying process it was amazing.

2007 Corvette Coupe Machine Silver on Black

Kenny Day
Covington, Wa.
2007 Corvette Coupe “Machine Silver on Black”

“From the start Joe came across as someone that was interested in my needs and not simply trying to sell me something. He’s clearly a Corvette expert and was able to answer all my questions vs. the guessing and fumbling around for an answer I found at other dealerships.

The sales experience was equally positive. He kept the commitments he made verbally on the phone and got us on our way very quickly.

I drove a long way and passed numerous other Chevy dealers to make the purchase from Joe and wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.”
