Club History

This page will be updated as we continue to compile the data.

The Kanawha Valley Corvette Club was started in July 1965 with the formation of the Kanawha Valley Corvette Association, Inc., with the goals of:

1. To promote safety in highway and competitive driving.
2. To promote interest in all models of Corvettes.
3. To organize, sponsor, and officiate competitive events relative to this type of automobile.
4. To collect and disseminate technical information for the mutual benefit of the Membership of the Corporation.

These goals were taken directly from our copy of the original incorporation documents.

We feel today, more than ever, these goals have been met and exceeded in everyway. Our membership now numbers 100+ from West Virginia and surrounding states. We sponsor various events that benefit the local communities and organizations. From attending local town parades, providing cars for “Gold Star Mothers” in Armed Forces day parades, to participating in car shows that draw crowds by the thousands. Hurricane, St. Albans, Nitro and Spencer holiday and special day parades have all included our club members. South Charleston’s Summerfest Car Show, the Capital Golden Oldies/Corvette Show, the Charleston Blvd. Rod Run & Doo Wop when it was active and in the recent past, supporting a small volunteer fire department in Reedsville Ohio, are just a few of the many events our active members attend and routinely promote.

In 1974 the club joined the National Council of Corvette Clubs, another organization that works for the benefit of Corvette owners.

Most of our club members are members of the National Corvette Museum. This is another organization that works closely with Chevrolet in promoting the Corvette, America’s Sportscar.

We are proud of our rich heritage and look forward to many years of enjoying one of America’s most successful icons.
