Carolinas Chapter of the NcrS

Home of the 2019 NCRS National Convention


our chapter


The Carolinas Chapter, formed in 1996, is part of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) and is dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and enjoyment of Corvettes 1953 - 2002. The Carolinas Chapter brings a part of the National NCRS to the local area where you can become involved in activities within the Carolinas. 

We invite you to join us at one of our road tours, technical sessions, judging schools, or judging events.  Check out our Events page for all future events! Our focus is primarily Corvettes, but good cars bring good friends together.  Won't you come and join us?

We cover the Carolinas with members from the coast to the mountains.  

The Carolinas Chapter is proud to be a Top Flight® Chapter.
