Lone Star Corvette Club

Just bought a new Corvette?  Or just love them? You have come to the right place!  The Lone Star Corvette Club is dedicated to the Corvette lifestyle and the people that own them.  Our Club slogan says it all:

 

Good Friends… Great Cars!

 

Founded in 1982, the Club now has over 1,000 members – each with his/her own story to tell of how they found that perfect “Vette.”  Based in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex, it offers just about any activity an owner of “America’s Sports Car” could want: Road Trips, Day Trips, Open Road Racing, Drag Racing, Autocross, NCRS (National Corvette Restorers Society), Car Shows, Displays and Parades, the Lone Star Corvette Classic, Club Meetings, and most of all, fun times with good friends.

The Club takes at least one significant road trip each year, usually in conjunction with a Corvette event.  To get an even better feel about what this Club is all about, click on the “Newsletter” button and read the latest issue of our award winning, online, newsletter.

Blake’s Snow Shack

 

We went cruising for snow cones at Blake's Snow Shack, Sanger, Texas.

 

Blake is the youngest business owner in Sanger and the only business owner in Texas with Down’s Syndrome, and he makes a mean snow cone!

September 23 – 24, 2016

 

WCCA

 

Please save the date for the 31st Annual North Texas Corvette Roundup September 23 – 24, 2016 in Wichita Falls, Texas.

 

For 30 years, from 1981 to 2011, the North Texas Corvette Roundup grew to become a signature annual event hosted by the Wichita County Corvette Association. During this two day event, participants enjoyed a variety of fun activities including a Corvette show and awards banquet. During the last four years, so many of you – our friends and our biggest supporters – have approached our members and asked us to bring back North Texas’ premier Corvette event – the North Texas Corvette Roundup.

 

 

It’s our pleasure to announce – We’re back!  You kept asking and we heard you!

Once again Lone Star Corvette Club has been selected to volunteer for the Mecum Auction in Dallas on November 2-5. This is always a popular event for the Club, and one that provides a significant contribution to our Club Members. Over the years, through our volunteer efforts we have raised several thousand dollars while working hard to make the Mecum Auction successful.


This year there will be over a thousand cars going across the auction block. If you have volunteered in the past, you know that means a variety of stick shifts, clutches, brakes, starters and steering wheels! If you haven't volunteered to work the Mecum Auction, please consider it. Click the button below to sign up.
