It’s the middle of May and that means its time for the annual Corvette Beach Caravan and Car Show. For the last 33 years, Dorthan, Alabama’s Circle City Corvette club caravans down to Panama City Beach, Florida for a weekend of Corvette fun and camaraderie. Special guests for this year’s show will include the 2014 Corvette Stingray, Corvette exterior designer Kirk Bennion and NCM director Wendell Strode.
The fun starts this Thursday night in Dorthan with a kick off party at the Clarion Inn & Suites. On Friday, over 100 Corvettes are expected to caravan to the Wyndham Bay Point Beach Resort in Panama City Beach.
Participants can do the caravan and car show or if you’re already in the Florida panhandle or surrounding area, you can join the Circle City Corvette club for the car show and seminars on Saturday, May 18th.
The special guests for this year’s show is the 2014 Corvette Stingray and the C7’s Exterior Design Manager Kirk Bennion. Joining the party from Bowling Green is Eric Millette, Body Systems Manager and Steve Grilli, Quality Manager at the Corvette Assembly Plant. The three GM’ers will be hosting several Corvette seminars on Saturday.
Wendell Strode, the Corvette Museum’s Executive Director will be bringing the Corvette Museum’s rolling store to the show and there’s a possibility that other distinguished guests may be there as well.
One of the highlights of the event is the Saturday evening Corvette memorabilia auction to benefit the NCM. Here are some of items our friend Charley has been collecting for the 2013 auction.
