A HISTORY OF CORVETTES OF BAKERSFIELD
Corvettes of Bakersfield was established in November 1967 as Associated Corvettes, a Bakersfield Corvette club and a voting member of the Western States Corvette Council. In 1969 Associated Corvettes brought to Bakersfield and hosted one of the largest Corvette Conventions in the Western States. The Corvette Council’s pre-convention, with Corvettes coming from as far away as Mississippi, put Bakersfield on the Corvette map.
With a name change in the early 1970’s the club became known as Corvettes of Bakersfield. This was a better fitting name to promote and enhance the image of Kern County and the City of Bakersfield to the rest of the Corvette Clubs, their families and our Kern County Sponsors and Charities.
Today Corvettes of Bakersfield, Inc. has over 100 members and meets monthly. Through club member donations, car shows, runs, and BBQ’s, Corvettes of Bakersfield supports several local charities. In 1992, Corvettes of Bakersfield hosted the First Annual Gambler’s Classic Car Show in Lake Havasu, Nevada. Today, Corvettes of Bakersfield is working on our 22nd Gamblers Classic to be held in Laughlin Nevada in May of 2022. With over 700 Corvettes attending in previous shows, the Gambler’s Classic has become the largest anticipated Corvette Show in the Western States.
All proceeds collected from the car show are brought back to Kern County for our local charities. To date, Corvettes of Bakersfield has donated close to $300,000 to charities in and around Bakersfield. Some of these charities, to name a few, have been Alpha Canine Sanctuary, Arthritis Association Aquatic Center, Avon Walk for Life, Bakersfield College Scholarships, Bethany Homeless Services, Calif. Highway Patrol Widows and Orphans Fund, Calif. Living Museum, Car Quest Cancer Kids Christmas Fund, Crippled Children’s Society, Groynedd Merc Academy, Hoffman Hospice, Homemaker Care Program, Jameson Children’s Center, Kern County Search & Rescue, The SPCA, Love Inc., Muscular Dystrophy Association, Special Olympics, The Friendship House and Three Way Chevrolet’s Charity Golf Tournament. Corvettes of Bakersfield has also donated to several other local charities on an as needed basis when asked.
Corvettes of Bakersfield, Inc. would like to thank all of its members, sponsors, friends and volunteers for all the support, love and time donated to our cause.
