NCRS Membership Benefits
The Corvette Restorer Magazine
Old Cars Weekly has honored The Corvette Restorer with 15 Golden Quill awards. Members use the magazine's 96 pages to learn and share historical, restoration, and technical material. No ads ever. Best of all, you can benefit from over 36 years of amassed knowledge because members can get copies of any article that we've ever printed.
The Driveline Newsletter
The Driveline is also used to keep members updated on NCRS Chapter events, Regional
meets, the National Convention and other hobby news. As a special members-only service,
the NCRS sells Corvette books and literature at far below retail prices through the Driveline.

The NCRS has compiled and is constantly updating highly detailed judging standards and rules for each basic model division from 1953 through 1996. The guidelines in these NCRS Judging Manuals are recognized throughout the hobby as THE STANDARD in determining originality.
The judging system is designed to educate each owner about their car as well as providing recognition for excellence in the areas of restoration, performance, or preservation. It is not a "cleanliness contest" like other events, nor do you compete against your friends' Corvettes. Judging is not done by some secret group of "experts".
You can learn to judge, or you can have your Corvette evaluated by other NCRS members. Over 3,000 members are currently recognized for their judging expertise. Last year, these members judged over 900 Corvettes at NCRS events nationwide.
The NCRS sponsors one National Convention, eight Regional Meets, and dozens of chapter meets every year. These family oriented events occur year round across the country.They feature NCRS Concourse Judging, displays of rare Corvettes, social gatherings, Corvette road tours, parts and literature swaps, technical sessions, plant tours, seminars, special guest speakers, and much more.
Our meets have featured such Corvette notables as Zora Arkus-Duntov and his wife Elfie, Larry Shinoda, Dave McLellan, Noland Adams, Dr. Dick Thompson, Dick Guldstrand, Bob Clift, Reeves Callaway, and many others.
NCRS members benefit from mountains of technical information that they can rely on. When you join the NCRS, you access the combined knowledge of previous members. Everything imaginable is covered from the most technical "how to" restoration article to general information about insurance and storage. As an example: there are more than 300 separate Corvette Restorer articles available that cover only Midyear (1963-67) Corvettes! Look and See!
A group of 14 Technical Advisors, who are recognized as the authorities in their fields, are also just a letter (or E-Mail) away. Basically, whatever problem you might run into has been solved in past years by other NCRS members. Why reinvent the wheel?
In the words of Richard Prince writing in Vette Magazine:
You should be a part of this organization. Join today! Both you and your car will find it a worthy and enjoyable experience.
