The East Texas Corvette Association has been in existence for 30 years. It started in a small town in East Texas known to many as the “Rose Capital of the World”, Yes, we’re from Tyler, Texas. A lot of great things like cattle, oil, agriculture, refinery as well as people like the “Buffalo Soldiers”, Sandy Duncan & Earl Campbell have come from this lustrous town. So, it was quite fitting to have an association like ours to join the ranks.

We now have nineteen (19) members in our association. We strive to help others when we can, so we donate school supplies for students and we have helped sponsor toy drives at Christmas. We lend a helping hand at Thanksgiving by helping a local church (County Line Baptist Church) serve food to needy families or people. We help other non-profit organizations as well as other vehicle clubs that we can.
We participate in community activities such as parades (Juneteenth and Texas College) and driving the homecoming court for a local high school (John Tyler High School). We have our Valentine’s Dance in February and our annual in October. We are a member of the International Council of Corvette Clubs (ICCC) and we foster our association on doing right by others.
