Membership of the Classic Corvette Club in the UK has risen to its highest number since the club was started back in 1979.
Increasing numbers of imports coupled to reduced domestic fuel costs, a great service/ spares network and not to mention Chevrolet still producing the Corvette in sizeable numbers, has all contributed to the continuing appeal of the Corvette. From the original 1953 C1 to the latest C7 variant, all are welcome in the club.
With the latest news regarding membership, club Chairman Rich Rogers said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming new members all the time and we try our very best to get everyone involved in all things Corvette”.
Owning your first Corvette, like any classic car can be a daunting prospect and the club has worked hard over the last few years to ensure that any (would-be) owner can access information and support readily. Rich Rogers continued: “We wanted to ensure that there is long-term support from the club for the novice enthusiast through to the expert restorer and in doing so are now attracting members from all over Europe.”
The club now has a very active website and forum along with regular meets led by Area Reps all around the UK, all supported by the bi-monthly club magazine, ‘Vette News’. You don’t even need to own a Corvette to be part of the family, just a passion for this American icon.
