The Central Pennsylvania Corvette Club was founded in 1971 by a small group of Corvette enthusiasts who wished to improve upon the array of Corvette Clubs by forming a club in the Greater Harrisburg area. The mission of the club is to encourage the use and enjoyment of your Corvette. Trips, events and social activities for club members are planned throughout the year. Regulated competition events are organized. These events could be Road Rallyes, Autocrosses or Concours. Other activities are scheduled which include picnics, car cruises, and other outings.
The club currently has 92 members and represents one of the larger clubs in the East Region.
Club members reside primarily in Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, and York counties, but there are no boundaries.
