This weekend was the 2012 Corvette Day at Larz Anderson Auto Museum. This particular event “Corvette Day” was organized by the New England Chapter of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS). The NCRS was formed as a non-profit hobby group which now has grown to over 15,000+ families dedicated to the restoration, preservation, history and enjoyment of Corvettes made from 1953 onwards.
If you are looking to find anything and I really do mean ANYTHING about Corvette’s the NCRS is the mecca for Corvette fans, it can tell you things like “numbers matching”. Do you know what these numbers mean? Are they truthful?
As you can imagine this was a very well attended show with some fantastic cars from original owned and purchased C1 Corvettes up to the latest and fastest C6’s of today with their supercharged engines.
The first Corvette designed by Harley Earl was a convertible and introduced at the GM Motorama back in 1953 as a concept show car. The cars name is attributed to Myron Scott after a small, maneuverable warship called a corvette. Originally the cars were built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, however the current range of Corvette’s including the famed ZR1 are currently built in Bowling Green, Kentucky very close to the National Corvette Museum.
