2012 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe “Carlisle Blue on Black & Gray”

Joe, We just wanted to take a minute and send you a quick note. Marty and I hate to shop for cars and the main reason is the high pressure salesmen. Joe, you made both of us feel like family members which really set us at ease. We were looking for a specific car and found it online at another dealership in South Carolina. I contacted you and the first words out of your mouth were ” I will look into it and see if I can make a deal for you.” Well in two weeks we now have a 2012 Carlisle Blue Metallic Grand Sport Coupe in our garage. By your efforts you made the process painless. Your dealing with the few issues that came up and getting us that car at a fair price. We could not be happier. As a member of the Board of Directors of the Corvette Marque Club of Seattle I also wanted to thank you and Speedway Chevrolet for your sponsorship of the club.

2008 Corvette Z51 Coupe “Atomic Orange on Black”

Joe Knows Corvettes?  Yes, he does.    Joe timed my scheduled arrival with the washed and ready Corvette parked at the front door for us to look at.    We drove four hours each way to purchase this 2008 from Joe and Speedway Chevrolet.  He and his team had responded to my phone calls and website inquiries earlier in the week, answering questions about what I was hoping to be my first Corvette.  Joe was responsive, knowledgeable, low-key, and helpful with an uncommonly large “fleet” of pristine pre-owned Corvettes from which to choose.  All in all, a smooth, enlightening, and low pressure transaction, getting us a great car for a fair price and getting us back on the road to enjoy the drive home.

Check with Joe at Speedway Chevrolet.  He should be able to provide a smooth deal on a great car, from start to finish.

2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe Shark Grey on Black

2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe “Shark Grey on Black”

We bought our 2015 Stingray Coupe on June 7, 2015 after an exhausting search of dealers in 5 states. One telephone call to Joe convinced us that Speedway would be the right place to buy our new Vette. The price of the new car was very good, my trade value was accurate and fair, and the entire process quick and pleasant. Our time at the Dealership was less than one way driving time from our home in Eastern Washington. We left for home in a new Corvette, a new friend in Joe Harvey, and a good feeling for the entire buying experience. If you are looking for a Corvette-new or previously owned-you owe it to yourself to check the inventory at Speedway. It is absolutely true that “Joe Knows Corvettes”! Thank you, Joe.

1992 Corvette Coupe Bright Red on Black

1992 Corvette Coupe “Bright Red on Black”

My boyfriend Mark and I went out browsing at Corvettes one afternoon. Couldn’t find too many out there. We were told to go up to Speedway Chevrolet in Monroe that they might have a few. Couldn’t believe the inventory of Corvettes that they had on their lot. Mark has owned many corvettes in his life. He spotted a red 1992 Coupe on the lot that he insisted use to be his many years prior. It was still in showroom condition. After reading the car fax and VIN# and finding the manual still in the vehicle with his name written inside of it, it was obvious it was his old car. What are the odds?? He had purchased it brand new in 1992 and traded it in back in 2007 only to regret it. He purchased it again from Joe and is thrilled with having it back again. I also purchased a beautiful 2004 Roadster from Joe and couldn’t be happier. I want to thank Joe Harvey for making both Mark and my purchasing experience effortless. Joe’s knowledge about Corvettes and his patience was helpful in our decision making. Can’t wait to put the top down and get out in the sun and Mark can’t wait to enter his flawless 1992 in upcoming car shows. Please go see Joe when buying a Corvette, you won’t regret it.

2004 Corvette Coupe Commemorative Edition “Lemans Blue on Shale”

Once again, I found myself contacting Joe about yet another Corvette. Yes, I’ve owned quite a few and all purchased from Joe. Although it might sound like I buy and sell corvettes, each sale was forced due to family challenges or other factors outside my control. Once I righted the ship, I was back for another one! When I told Joe I was back in the hunt, it was a matter of hours before he found what I wanted and gave me a call. He knew exactly what would be the right fit and he secured the perfect Vette for me. He also took into account my financial parameters and guided me in the right direction of favorable financing. Let me tell you, there is no better person on the planet who knows Corvettes like Joe and no one better in facilitating the right car for you. Yes, we’ve bought other Chevrolet’s from him! All these testimonials go beyond a mere thank you and endorsement for Joe. They are heart-felt confirmations of appreciation for a guy who sincerely cares and gets just as much satisfaction watching you drive off the lot in your dream car as you do from behind the wheel. Thanks again Joe for all you have done for me and my family!

2007 Corvette Coupe Machine Silver on Black

| Customer Testimonials | May 23, 2015

Lance & Erika Clements
Aberdeen, Wa.
2007 Corvette Coupe “Machine Silver on Black”

My name is Lance D Clements Sr. and I want to tell you about my experience buying my BEAUTIFUL corvette from Joe Harvey.

While this was my 2nd ‘Vette, it was my 1st from a dealership, having bought my 1st from a private party. I had actually been referred to Joe by a friend of mine who, himself, had bought HIS 4th or 5th vette (and some of his previous ones) from Joe just recently.

My friend knew that I don’t have a lot of patients when it comes most car dealerships nor the high pressure salesmen who work at them. While I know and understand that their paychecks, in many cases, depend on getting you to not only buy the most expensive car they can get you qualified for, but also getting you to agree to buy a lot of expensive “extras” that you really didn’t want and probably don’t really need, either, I still don’t like the fact that most try and pressure you into getting them anyway.

However, that was NOT the case with Joe.

I had called and spoke with him ahead of time and after having reviewed some of the ‘vettes I was interested in, on line. While I saw MANY that I could easily see myself in, my attention, and interest, eventually settled on a beautiful white corvette with a push button retractable top. Joe told me all about it in a very easy and gentle manner with NO attempts at trying to sell me ON the car which I both loved AND appreciated.

My belief is that, if the salesman has to sell you ON the car, then, likely, its NOT the car for you. My friend had told me that, with Joe, there would be NO high pressure sales tactics or anything and he was absolutely right and correct..there wasn’t ANY.

My phone conversation with Joe was pleasant and enjoyable. We set an appointment for my wife and I to come up and see that white corvette and hung up.

I was excited about the upcoming trip to go see “my” new corvette and had already pretty much sold myself on it even before we set off ON the trip. Joe said he would give me as good a trade in allowance as possible on my older vette if I didn’t want to take the time and effort to try and sell it privately. I also appreciated this, as well, as I am a very busy man and really DON’T have the time required to do this.

So, the day arrives and off we go. I already had a letter of credit from the local bank that I do business with which to buy the vette and a good credit rating, so I was set.

When we arrived, Joe met us with a warm smile and friendly reception. He already had the vette out and ready for us to test drive. So, we gave him the keys to my old vette to look over for trade in consideration, he gave us the keys to test drive the newer one and away we went on our test drive. It was JUST THAT simple and easy.

My wife almost instantly fell in love with it (and, gasp!!! She doesn’t usually LIKE vettes, though I DO !!!) and reluctantly, finally, “allowed” me behind the wheel of what was SUPPOSED to be “my” vette, ANYWAY. We returned to the dealership to do the required paperwork, but, just before we entered the building I said to my wife that I wanted to take one last look around to be SURE that this was THE vette that I REALLY wanted.

And, I’m glad I did.

Because, sitting across the lot was THE vette that I KNEW the moment I laid eyes on it, was going to be mine.

It was a gorgeous silver outside and solid black leather inside. The ONLY thing I saw that disappointed me was that it had a solid color, removable top whereas I REALLY preferred and wanted/liked glass/clear tops like my old vette. Well, Joe came to the rescue. He said he just happened to have a glass top that would fit “my” new vette perfectly if I wanted (which, obviously, I did) and he said he would make me a deal on it, too.

He gave me the price for the top and it was SO reasonable that I HAD to take it. Because Joe and I had, both, been left thinking I was going to buy that white vette, the silver one wasn’t exactly “all prettied up” for me, but I didn’t care. I saw thru the slight dirt and such and eagerly jumped in to take IT for a test drive.

It was LOVE at first sight AND touch. Almost immediately I started receiving compliments about how “my” vette looked “awesome” from complete and total strangers as we drove around or even just stopped at a stop sign. I now knew for sure that THIS was THE vette for me. I drove back to the dealership and told Joe that I had changed my mind and that THIS was now the vette I REALLY wanted.

Without ANY problems, Joe set about making it happen immediately. 1st, Joe told me what he could get me fory old vette as a trade in and, since it met all of MY conditions, I thought it very fair and agreeable.
Then 2ndly, I gave Joe my letter of credit. Now, because I have such good credit, not only did my bank give me the amount of money I asked for with which to buy the vette ofy choice, but they ALSO were able to give me an excellent APR (Annual Percentage Rating) or loan rate.

However, and to my incredible surprise, after looking over my letter of credit and the loan rate offered toe by my bank, Joe asked me if I would give him the chance to beat it, if he could. Thinking that he wouldn’t be able to do this, since, like I said, my bank had already given me such excellent terms that it didn’t seem possible TO be able to beat their offer, I said “sure”.

Well, incredibly, on top of everything else, Joe DID, somehow, manage to beat my bank’s offer and took off almost another entire percentage point off my already crazy low interest rate!!! He got me a rate UNDER 4 and just barely over 3%!!!

My time there was doing paperwork and such was SO short that it likely set some kind of personal record for my wife and I being able to find a car, do the paperwork and leave WITH the new car. I have discovered over the years that, often, the reasons for the incredibly long times for getting you out a dealerships doors has to do with the belief that the longer they can keep you AT the dealership, the more likely it is that, one way or another, they are going to be able to get even MORE $$ out of, or from, you.

This is/was NOT the case with Joe.

He wanted to keep us there, both no longer than WE wanted to be there AND then we HAD to be there. Joe was quick, efficient and all the while remained friendly and pleasant. I was also stunned (and pleasantly surprised) to find that his asking price for his vettes are not only reasonable, but that they were barely over the Kelly Blue Book values. In other words, he keeps his profit margins RAZOR thin already. This was GREAT to discover because it means that there’s really no need to try and get him to drop his prices because he ALREADY intentionally HAS them just as low as he can and still be able to make at least a SMALL profit (after all, he DOES need to make SOME $$ with which to pay his guys and himself, right??)

I PROMISE you, Joe will NOT gouge you, nor is he looking to, either. He will give you a MORE than reasonable price on a Gorgeous vette of YOUR choice. AND, he will NOT subject you to ANY high pressure sales tactics. You will leave there happy, at ease and, if your like me, looking forward to going back some day in the future to buy ANOTHER vette from Joe.

I found Joe to be honest, friendly, pleasant, interested ONLY in making sure YOUR happy with both your buying experience AND whatever car you eventually decide is the one for YOU and doing everything he can to see that you get THE BEST deal possible.

What more could I ask for??

Joe, my wife and I STILL Thank you for a WONDERFUL car buying experience and we look forward to seeing you again in the future and buying ANOTHER vette. We will, ALSO, happily refer any, and every, body that we hear of who wants to buy themselves, or are even THINKING OF buying, a corvette.

Joe, your AWESOME!!!

2011 Corvette Grand Sport Roadster Torch Red on Black

2011 Corvette Grand Sport Roadster “Torch Red on Black”

It started with a simple email to Joe – ‘I’m looking for a red GS convertible’. There were none in the Pacific Northwest that met my wish list. We both searched for potential candidates through the usual routes – auto classifieds and Corvette forum listings. Joe patiently guided me towards the better cars and even had several investigated for me. Then late at night he contacted me; “Can you call me at 11 tomorrow? I have a GS – I really think it’s the one for you.” This beauty was traded by the original owner on a brand new Stingray. It’s a 2011, 4LT, manual, NPP and only 11,000 miles, but it was located 2,200 miles away. It was going to be auctioned at 11:30 that morning. He asked his contacts near the auction facility to check the car out – and they returned great reports. Trusting Joe’s instinct, I told him to go for it and he won the bid! Joe did everything: Bidding at auction, finalizing payment, arranging transport. All I had to do was drive to Monroe to collect the car. This GS is in like-new condition. It’s perfect in every way, and is everything I’d dreamed of having in a GS vert. Joe is the only one I trust to purchase a car sight-unseen from. This is the third Corvette and fourth vehicle my husband and I have purchased from Joe. Despite having one of the largest Corvette dealers in the Pacific Northwest located just five miles from our house, we travel 250 miles to work with Joe on our car purchases. If you think you can find, evaluate, purchase and transport a Corvette by yourself, trust me you can’t. I would never have been aware of this GS had it not been for Joe. Thanks to him I have the GS Corvette convertible of my dreams, and zero stress in purchasing it. Joe is always honest and fair and he works with you to find the perfect car – no matter where it is located. Joe really does know Corvettes, and he always goes the extra mile for his customers.

Thanks again Joe for the amazing GS. At the first stop on the way home a young man parked next to us, and asking what year it was, commented “that is one beautiful car!”. I think we have a definite winner.

2004 Corvette Roadster Magnetic Red on Black

2004 Corvette Roadster “Magnetic Red on Black”

So I have been thinking about trading in the Charger RT, for a while, for a Camaro, Challenger or 300 but with more horsepower and less miles. But none of the dealerships we’d been too had used ones, that weren’t in the cartoon colors. Then they put you in a new one with half the bells and whistles telling you why its the way to go. None of them felt as good as my Charger. So we stopped at Speedway Chevrolet in Monroe, just to see if they had anything in another lot somewhere. As we headed inside, I just thought Id look at the Corvettes, I mean why not, that why they are there. I went over to this one as it reminded me of one I had a while back. It turned out, it was less money than anything I was looking at so far, with low miles. All it took was driving it out of the parking lot and I was in love! Marshall reminded me, that I had said, I would never own a Corvette again. Joe, our salesman, reminding me of all the reason why I did love it. It was the fastest experience I have ever had buying a car in my life. A full tank of gas and two Corvette hats later, we were on our way! Joe was an exceptional salesman, that listened to us to get us the deal that worked perfect in record time. This was our second purchase at Speedway Chevrolet, I know we will be back.

Thanks Joe, we love our 2004 Roadster!

HI Joe,

It was a real pleasure working with you as well as Chase as I was searching for my Corvette. I had been looking for a couple of months and had come to the conclusion that I would need to purchase my car out of state due to the lack of selection and frustrating lack of Corvette knowledge. It’s a sad fact that many dealers don’t know the first thing about Corvettes and couldn’t tell you the difference between a 3LT and BLT sandwich. Coming to Speedway and working with you as well as Chase, I immediately realized I was at the right place with both a great selection of low mileage clean cars and strong product knowledge to answer all of my questions. The purchase process was quick and easy and I was on the road in my first Vette in no time.

Thanks again for making my purchase a pleasurable experience!

Best regards,

Hi Joe,

We just wanted to thank you for making the purchase of our 2012 Grand Sport such an easy and stress free experience. You were always available to take our calls and answer our questions. It was nice to finally find a car salesman that did NOT give us the High Pressure sales pitch. You found us the exact car we wanted and even went the extra mile by finding us new rims and chrome badges for it. You were highly recommended to us by a colleague and we will absolutely “pay it forward” and recommend anyone who wants to purchase a corvette to come and see you. We are sure that they will receive the same excellent service that we did. Thank you again for making this car purchasing experience such a pleasant one.
