It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Today’s selection is group shot featuring the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) visiting the Corvette assembly plant in St. Louis on June 24, 1961.
The National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) was founded in 1959 to promote interest in Corvette ownership, operation and knowledge about Corvettes across the country. Today, they are one of the largest national groups which represents over 270 individual Corvette clubs and thousands of active members across the country.
Our Throwback Thursday picture shows one of the ways that Corvette owners back in the early sixties learned more about how America’s favorite sports car was made – by traveling to the Corvette Assembly Plant in St. Louis to watch the production of Corvettes on the factory line.
Sort of like the clubs of today that make the trek to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant to see how the new 2014 Corvette Stingrays are built.
