The Mahoning Valley Corvettes celebrated its 50th year by having a group photo taken at the Youngstown Air Force Reserve Station in Vienna, Ohio with the 910th Airlift Wing, Colonel Reinhard Schmidt, Air Wing Commander. The photos were taken on the “flight line” on August 18, 2012 in front of one of the C-130 Cargo planes based there.
On September 7, 1961 six Corvette owners met at a home in Vienna, Ohio to discuss the possibilities of forming a club. A club was formed and named the Mahoning Valley Corvettes. The club was incorporated under the state laws of Ohio on January 1, 1962 with five charter members. The Mahoning Valley Corvettes held its first official meeting on January 6, 1962 at the Youngstown Municipal Airport in Vienna, Ohio.
Formed September 7, 1961, and joining the NCCC in 1969 with the purported purpose of “encouraging interest in Corvettes, and to promote driving safety and good driving habits.”
The MVCC is a very active club, hosting great social events such as cruises and a weekly car show at the Boardman Quaker Steak and Lube. Our premier event is our NCCC sanctioned car show, which is held at Greenwood Chevrolet in Austintown, Ohio, in July. Most of the proceeds go to various needy families in the Mahoning Valley.
