They come from miles around…lines of colorful Corvettes, all generations represented, traveling from every one of the continental United States, from Canada, and even from a few other countries, to gather at the Home of the Corvette. 2014 will bring the 5th National Corvette Caravan, and will mark the 20th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum.
The 5th National Corvette Caravan will take place the last week of August, 2014. State and/or regional caravans will form, and then join other caravans, as thousands of Vettes travel together across the United States to gather in Bowling Green, Kentucky for four days of fun and festivities at the National Corvette Museum.
Leading the spectacle will be Paul Mariano of Huntersville, N.C. (seen at the right), a 20-year Museum member, who is not only a Lifetime Member of the Museum, but also a Founding Member. "A national caravan such as this requires years of planning and coordinating, and the Museum is fortunate to have a volunteer like Paul to take on this monumental task," stated National Corvette Museum Executive Director, Wendell Strode.
Also, if you are a caravan captain,and would like a post on your state and/or region, please email me the particulars at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you tell your story.
This map shows the various caravan starting point areas. Sometimes a single state, like New Jersey. Sometimes less than a state, like most of Michigan. Sometimes multiple states, like New Mexico and Arizona.
