My name is Ricky Moore and I’m the Georgia Captain. I was a car dealer for forty years but am now retired. My wife Linda, teaches autistic children and is a Skincare Esthetician.
We are both car enthusiasts. I had my first Corvette at eighteen and have had one on and off ever since. We have a ’58 and ’98 Corvette.
We enjoy going to the Corvette Expo in Pidgeon Forge every year.
We are looking forward to going with the 2019 Caravan with a friend who just bought her corvette.
The 50th Anniversary Caravan in June 2003 was our first. We also went in 2009 and 2014. We enjoyed each one.
I realize we’re getting a late start but I would like feedback from other participants, especially from south Georgia, being they have the farthest distance to travel.
