We are located in and around Raleigh, North Carolina. Generally speaking Central North Carolina, referred to as "the Piedmont", thus our name. The only requirement for membership is an active interest in the ole Chevys. It is not necessary to own one to be a member although most members do, and some have many old cars and belong to a variety of car clubs. The club was founded in 1974, incorporated as a non profit corporation in 1985, and has averaged over the years 40-50 member families. Our membership today is approximately 90 families.
The club usually meets every month, on the fourth Monday, at 7 PM in the Raleigh, NC Jaycee Center on Wade Avenue. At times we have a social outing rather than a business meeting. We travel to Car Shows, parades, other community events, have club outings and cruises, and sponsor an annual Car Show with most of the proceeds donated to a local charity. In addition we periodically have members and others present " Tech Sessions” where members can learn from those more experienced in working on the cars.
Members vary in age from about 18 to 70. Members come from all walks of life including truck drivers, pilots, engineers, computer programmers, small business owners, salesmen and women, auto industry professionals, landscaping, office professionals, business executives, you name it!. Some of our members are women who also own these wonderful old Chevys. We have one 18 year old who drove her 57 Chevy daily to High School. She is now in college and still driving the 57.
