National Corvette Restoration Society


Formed in 1974, the National Corvette Restorers Society is a non-profit hobby group of 15,800+ families dedicated to the restoration, preservation, history and enjoyment of Corvettes made from the model years 1953 through 1996.


Formed in 1991 and has adopted the National Corvette Restorers Society Mission Statement. The New York Chapter also is dedicated to helping all NCRS members in their restoration efforts. 

The  Western NY NCRS Chapter is an active chapter that conducts numerous technical seminars, annual Judging Meet and Social Events. Many of our members attend National and Regional events. These members provide  valuable information about judging standards and restoration techniques to all members.            

The Crossed Flags newsletter is the media center for our Western New York Chapter and will help keep you informed on all Chapter activities; past, present and future.
