How did it start for you?
The NGCA is comprised of men and women who admire, enjoy, and love Corvettes. Something in their lives influenced them to the point where they made the decision to buy their own copy of America's Sports Car. Was it because they saw one in their neighborhood as a child? An old TV show? Did a relative give them a ride in one as they were growing up? Did a friend in college have one? A co-worker?
Offered here are some member's accounts describing how the love affair with Chevrolet's Corvette started for some of our members. Read through our stories and see if they sound familiar to you. Since you are now visiting our Club's website, I imagine you have an interest in them too. So, how did it start for you?
