The original 15 members that formed the club invited 11 other Corvette enthusiasts to join, for a total of 26 charter members.
“Our membership has a common interest and bond – we have been drawn together by a dream: the Chevrolet Corvette. Corvettes of Buffalo is a social, technical and community-oriented club. Our sense of community has led to our club membership more than doubling, during the last 10 years, as we now have over 80 members,” a spokesperson said, on the site.
Corvettes of Buffalo is a member of the National Council of Corvette Clubs, representing the Northeast region. Members of clubs affiliated with the NCCC are able to join in on club activities, as well.
