26th and Final Winter Open Day 2018

Invitation to our final and 26th Annual Winter Open Day. From 10am till 3pm on Monday January 1st 2018. Come and join us for coffee, tea, cakes, mince pies etc. Please bring your Corvette and start 2018 the Corvette way! Tom is retiring in April or sooner and the Old Chapel is being re-developed. We hope that the parts business will be sold and continue locally by Aimee who has been our Parts Manager for the past 5 years. We will be stopping car sales completely and we hope that Matt will continue working on Corvettes independently, probably from our workshop in Snodland.

1984 Corvette C4 Launch GM Drivetrain Display 1983 NCRS Judging

We held an NCRSUK Judging School at Claremont Corvette on the 19th March to study the Drivetrain in detail and compare this pre-production display to the NCRS judging manual. Interesting that the original 1984-only recessed-logo Goodyear tyres are dated 25th and 26th week of 1982, the alternator brace a no number prototype, and the alternator probably a later substitution. Most interesting discovery was the engine casting date of November 1982. So mine is almost certainly not the Riverside Long Lead Drivetrain, because it’s cylinder block was cast while that event was happening. Instead it must be another drivetrain built later for the European launch, supported by its leaded fuel exhaust system with no catalytic converter or o2 sensor.

Our 63 Roadster

We are building up/ restoring this very nice 63 convertible Black with Red interior 327 manual. Will be for sale in a few months. A really great buy for someone…….

Corvette win Le Mans 2015

We are celebrating a great victory by the C7R #64 Corvette racer in the 2015 Le Mans 24 hour endurance race. Corvette won the hotly contested GTE- Pro class against very close competition from Ferrari and Aston Martin. Tom was there in his 1964 Corvette and visited the pit on Friday afternoon to get these pictures and meet the rest of the #64 crew.
