About Us



The Cornhusker Corvette Club (CCC) was founded in 1960, which makes us the oldest corvette club in our region. When you join CCC, you also join the National Club, NCCC, which currently has over 18,000 members.

Our club offers a wide array of fun for the corvette owner and enthusiast! Those include social activities, auto-cross, drivers education, rallies, drag races, tours, car shows, parades and more.

We have several late and early model "experts" in our club who are always delighted to help other members with their "projects". Attendance at our monthly meetings usually exceeds 80 people, which affords you an opportunity not only to socialize, but to share tech tips as well.

We enjoy at least one social each month. Our 385+ plus members cover the gamut in age, hobbies, and professions, and they are all eager to meet YOU! Gals enjoy CCC also, and in many cases, finish higher in the standings than their spouses.


Membership wise, we are the largest NCCC club in the region, and we have been THE LARGEST NCCC CLUB IN THE NATION several years! If you are competitive, we are also the club for you. CCC has been #1 in the West region for 19 of the last 20 years. WE EARNED THE #1 CLUB IN THE NATION TITLE IN 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2009, 2008, 1999, 1989 & 1978!!!

Our 3 time Award winning, monthly newsletter, Husker News 'N Views, contains tech tips, Corvette inspired stories, and numerous pictures of current events. Members eagerly await its arrival each month!


In 2009 CCC proudly accepted the prestigious NCCC-Duntov Performance Award. It was previously awarded only three times. The award is presented to a NCCC club that demonstrates a high level of participation in National Council, with Membership, Competition & Charity being the main focus.

Non-competitively, CCC attends several car shows and parades and undertakes at least one dynamite cruise each year. In 2003, several of our club members caravan to Nashville, TN for the 50th Anniversary of the Corvette. Included in the trip was a stop at the National Corvette Museum and the factory that produces the Corvette.


CCC supports the NCCC National charity, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, as well as other local charities and adopts several families at Christmas time.

Informational and Learning Seminars are held throughout the year for CCC members.  You will make hundreds of new friends locally, regionally and nationally while you enjoy America's favorite sports car, the

Early Days of Cornhusker Corvette Club
The Way We Were
                                                               By Allen H. Sohl

The year was 1960.  A young Massachusetts senator named John F. Kennedy was running for President of the United States. Americans were hearing about trouble in a far-off place called Vietnam.  The Edsel was down to its last gasp.  And in Omaha, Cornhusker Corvette Club was born.  Two young airmen stationed at Offutt Air Force Base, Gerald (“Jerry”) Sievers and Earl Lee, wanted to share their love for the Corvette with other owners. 

Earl Lee was CCC’s first club president, and Jerry’s wife, Joyce, was the first secretary.  Judging by Joyce’s detailed notes, the new club got off to a fast start.  F. Jerome Given, the founder of the famous Tangier Shrine Corvette Patrol, handled the incorporation papers.

It was a time when all Corvettes were roadsters with solid rear axles.  Some were equipped with the legendary Chevrolet 283 cid V8 with dual 4-barrel carburetors, or even fuel injection.  Club activities included cruises, car shows, and “hare and hound” rallyes.  There were other competition events, too.  They were generally held in or near Omaha, and some resembled games more than racing as we know it today.  In one parking lot event, a blindfolded driver had to negotiate a course by following verbal instructions from an onboard navigator. There was one member, however, who favored speed events -- he was actor Peter Fonda, who was enrolled at Omaha University (now UNO).



Jerry Sievers has produced the following short video that gives us
a glimpse of these bygone days.

Less is known about CCC during the latter part of the sixties. 
Peter Fonda moved to New York City to pursue his acting career. 
Jerry Sievers and Earl Lee were transferred overseas sometime
before the 1961 auto show at the Civic Auditorium.  


Club members voted early on to join NCCC, but for some reason this didn’t happen until 1970.

Club Social Activities

Meet & Greets

The CCC Social Committee usually plans at least one Meet and Greet every month.  We  meet at one of the local restrauants and socialize with new and veteran members. Some of the restrauants are contributors   to  our club and we like to suppoort them.

It is common to have 40 to 50 members show up for the Meet & Greets - especially when the weather is nice and we can drive our Corvettes.

Parades

The Cornhusker Corvette Club participates in several parades each year.  Some are annual events like the St. Patrick's Day parade in Downtown Omaha and the Veteran's Day Parade in Downtown Bellevue.  OF course, they are followed by a Meet & Greet because we just love getting together to have fun.
