Corvette Club Enthusiasm: Growing Stronger Over The Years

Posted by Bryan on 7/11/2013 to About Corvettes
For many Americans, there endures a lingering fascination with one sports car--the Chevrolet Corvette. Since automakers launched the Corvette in the late 1950s, people still long to acquire and collect the sports car. Moreover, they take even more delight in gathering with other devotees in annual social events to admire these American auto icons.

By the 1960s, the Corvette was firmly entrenched as cult Americana as it made bold appearances in television shows such as "77 Sunset Strip" and "Route 66"; moreover, they also became the focus of many songs popular at that time. Auto sales shot up and so did the nationís number of Corvette club gatherings.

A typical Corvette club mentality consists of not only wanting to own the flashy sports car, but also wanting everyone else to take note of the prized possession. It is pride taken to the max and the faithful have dutifully continued the tradition. Today, this enduring enthusiasm with the Corvette has spawned multiple clubs internationally, as well as nationally.

Across America, there primarily exists organizations such as the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) and the National Corvette Restorers Society. However, these two largest Corvette organizations are not the only ones in existence; there are other clubs holding events throughout the nation. Beside clubs, there is a National Corvette Museum in Kentucky that helps promote the mystique of the car for eager visitors.

Basically, Corvette clubs enjoy a non-profit status and they are extremely community-minded. Typically, these cult gatherings host popular events such as banquets, brunches, cruise ship adventures, and sports car races. But it doesn't stop there: they also are among the largest contributors to charitable institutions such as hospitals and hospice centers. Their worthy and generous sponsorship of various scholarship funds is also well-known and of special merit.

After more than 50 years of being Americaís sports car sweetheart, the Corvette remains an indisputable icon. Its popularity and the enthusiasm for it has not abated and the image it conjures up is one of affluence, independence and being so desirably cool.
