[PICS] The NCRS Gallery at Corvettes at Carlisle


Each year at Corvettes at Carlisle, the Delaware Valley Chapter of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) hand selects around 20 cars to represent each of their judging awards. The selected cars are then displayed in the NCRS Gallery throughout the Carlisle weekend in order to showcase what the NCRS is all about.

For 2016 the NCRS Gallery moved back on to the main fairgrounds into a brand new $70,000 tent right next to Building R out in the Fun Field. Previously the gallery had spent the last 10 or so years outside the show grounds in the building just outside of gate 1. That old location made for light foot traffic and limited exposure due to its remote location. Given the new location, foot traffic through the gallery was considerably higher than it’s been in past years. It was refreshing to see the great NCRS awarded cars getting the exposure that they deserved. Everyone we spoke to had nothing but positive feedback on the new location. Several folks even mentioned that it was their first time seeing the gallery as a result of its return the Fun Field.

The NCRS evaluates cars based on historical accuracy. That is, how closely do they resemble a new Corvette as delivered to its original owner? Cars can be restored back to factory fresh or left in original unrestored condition. The key is replicating or preserving what the Corvette plant did back in the day. Once the dust settles and scores are tabulated, cars scoring 94% or higher receive the coveted Top Flight Award. Upward from there, cars can achieve Performance Verification, Duntov, Star/Bowtie, and several other awards depending on how far owners decide to go. You can read more about the NCRS, its scoring system and various awards on the NCRS website. Currently the NCRS judges 1953-1999 Corvettes.

The NCRS Gallery picks 1 car from each of their judging classes and awards to showcase each year at Carlisle. This year’s collection featured cars from each of Corvette’s first 6 generations. They ranged from a Polo White 1955 representing the 1953-1955 judging class all the way to a Velocity Yellow 2012 Grand Sport representing the Sportsman award. The presentation of the cars is clean. There are no extra signs or awards outside of the gallery sign boards. All cars are roped off and the hoods are closed.

Throughout the weekend members of the Delaware Valley Chapter and the owners of the invited display cars were on hand to answer questions about the NCRS, the judging process, and the cars themselves. Several tables in the tent contained various versions of the NCRS judging guides for visitors to peruse as well as membership applications for those interested in joining. They also hosted raffle to raise money for the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Fund.

On Sunday morning each owner receives a personalized plaque commemorating their selection into the NCRS gallery. The awards are presented by Carlisle organizers Lance Miller, Bill Miller, Judy Miller, and Bill Miller III as well as gallery organizers Frank Stech and Elaine Raisner. Each also autographed most all of the plaques after they were handed out.

Congratulations to all of the owners below whose cars were selected for this year’s NCRS Gallery.
