Captain Sue Militello

Hello, my name is Sue Militello and along with my husband Sam we’ve been Corvette enthusiasts for 30 years.

We live in Deerfield Beach FL. We participate in 6-8 shows per year. We have met many great people and have made lots of new friends. This will be our 3rd caravan and we are very excited for 2019. Our captain for 2014, Carrie Sue Deleon, was a great mentor to me and I was proud to be her East Coast Local Leader. The caravan to Bowling Green KY is an awesome experience and one not to miss. We own 3 corvettes now, a 2000 convertible, a 2007 coupe and a 2013 Grand Sport – so which one do we choose for caravan?? The line of corvettes on highway is an awesome sight. I am looking forward to leading it. Our adventure will begin in Daytona Beach on Sunday August 25th 2019. Stay tuned to the Captain’s Page on nationalcorvettecaravan.com/fl for future updates. Also visit us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/2019FLcorvettecaravan/.

Please also welcome my Co-Captains Harry and Joeann Hite harryfjojo@aol.com and my local leaders Alicia and John Marzuk amarzuk@aol.com and Nick and Lois Fedorovich nickfedorovich@gmail.com. And, for the West Coast of Florida, Rick and Sherry Wheeler srrcwheeler@msn.com. These friends are very supportive and want to make the 2019 the best one ever!

Advertising is very important to our Caravan.

Please help us keep costs to a minimum. If you know of a local business in your area that would benefit from advertising in our Corvette Caravan Route Book, on this website, or on a banner, please email me below. Your local Corvette Clubs are also welcomed to advertise or you may also place a personal Ad in our Route Book. What better way for a business to reach this large and passionate group of consumers – The Corvette Enthusiast than by advertising with us?

Banners are popular and a great way for a business or club to show their support for the caravan. Banners are 3′ x 10′ on canvas with brass grommets for displaying. They can be printed with the business or club logo and signed by participants. Contact me for information on pricing.
