Welcome to the Queen City Corvette Club website
Queen City Corvette Club was organized in 1968 and we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary, August 12th. 2018. We are the largest and most active Corvette club in North Carolina with over 362 members. Our members range in age from the mid 20’s all the way up to our senior members, who are 80 years young. A range of Corvettes are represented, from vintage C1 models to the most current C7 model 2017 Corvette.
The primary goal of our club is ownership, driving, and sharing our Corvettes with others, while establishing close friendships with people who share a passion for Corvettes. Our activities include car shows, overnight and day road trips, parades, poker runs, car care days, cruise-ins and high- performance driving events. Our overnight road trips have included various destinations like: National Corvette Museum, Corvettes at Myrtle Beach, Shelton Vineyard Wine Tour, IMSA Racing at Daytona and Virginia International Raceway (VIR) and many more day trips. We participated in the 5th National Corvette Museum Caravan in 2014, with our own member, Paul Mariano, as the 2014 National Chairman of the Caravan. The caravan marked the 20th anniversary of the opening of the museum, and drew thousands of Corvette owners from across the US and several foreign countries.
The club’s “social activities” include BBQ’s, ice cream socials, picnics, and of course our famous Monday and Wednesday night dinner gatherings. These dinners give us an opportunity to gather at various restaurants throughout the greater Charlotte area, and allow us to get to know fellow members, and especially new members better. It also gives us an excuse to shine our cars and show them off! Our Wednesday group meets weekly and our Monday “Up Yonder” group meets on the last Monday of each month in the Lake Norman area.
Queen City Corvette Club provides an opportunity for members to exchange knowledge and information on how to maintain and enjoy their Corvette’s. It is called “Car Care Day”. We gather at different member’s homes to work on our Corvette’s and do small repairs like changing oil, installing new brakes pads, small electrical repairs and installing new accessories.
Queen City Corvette Club is a social non-profit club and is very active in the charity arena. We put on an annual car show with the help of our primary sponsor City Chevrolet, to raise funds that are donated to local and national charities. The past several years we supported through our charity fund, Matthews Free Medical Clinic, USO of Charlotte, the National Corvette Museum, Pilgrim’s Inn, Lotta Foundation, and Kids First of the Carolina’s. We also have supported the Corvette Angels, the 145th National Guard Children and the Matthews Help Center Children, at Christmas time.
The QCCC Club also meets the second Saturday of each month at locations in the greater Charlotte area. Look on our website calendar for details and location information. Our meetings usually begin at 6:00 p.m. and are usually preceded by a social hour starting at 5:00 pm. If you are interested in becoming a Member, go to the MEMBERSHIP page for information.
