Big Changes At Claremont Corvette

Big changes at Claremont Corvette in April 2018! After forty years owning, driving, buying, selling, fixing and restoring Corvettes, Tom is retiring in 2018.
Claremont’s long-term chief technician Matt Davison is taking over the Snodland workshop and trading as CCM Vettes Ltd from April.
Our vast inventory of new and used Corvette parts, collected by Tom over forty years , will be sold in our online-only shop at and dispatched by mail or courier from a new location run by parts manager Aimee Mills.
Tom will be spending more time enjoying his passion for driving C2 and C4 Corvettes, revising and republishing his many Corvette books in the Original series and attending club events.

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.
