A short Bio about myself: I am a current resident of Strongsville, Ohio 42 years of age married with 4 children, 3 dogs and one guinea pig. I began the Corvette obsession through my father who had always wanted one. In 1988 his dream came true and we went and picked up his 1984 Gold C4 Corvette with only 15K miles. He loved that car and I began to study everything about them. In 1991 I was afforded the opportunity with one of the guys I worked with whose father had a 1991 Torch Red ZR1. I was so excited to see it and sit in it but it was nothing compared to getting a ride. After that I knew I would one day have a Corvette ZR1. That day finally came on August 23rd, 2018 when my wife and I took her 2016 Corvette Stingray up to Michigan and picked up my 1994 Dark Red Metallic ZR1. Since then I have been on a mission to live the Corvette lifestyle. My wife and I along with my Father are looking forward to the Caravan and many of the other events throughout the year.
We are kicking off the Ohio leg of the 2019 Corvette Caravan at Serpentini in Strongsville on the morning of August 27th (Tuesday) at 8AM sharp. Breakfast will be provided by our host and Credential check-in will take place for those of you starting there. I have a block of rooms available at the Holiday Inn next to the Dealership (Frank Gabor Group Sales Manager IHG | Holiday Inn Strongsville 15471 Royalton Road Strongsville, Ohio 44136 Tel: 440.783.3015) for those wishing to come up the night before (Monday August 26th). From there were are motoring down I-71 South to the Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus, Oh for tours and lunch (Veterans are free everyone else will be $30). From there we will head to Florence, KY mile marker #177 to which is a rest area along i-75 to pick up additional cars (arrive approx. 3pm).
