Okaw Valley Classic Chevy Club

The Okaw Valley Classic Chevy (OVCC) club was formed in 1981 as a family oriented group dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of the TriFive (1955, 1956, and 1957) Chevrolet.  We publish a monthly newsletter, conduct workshops and cruises, attend car shows, host holiday celebrations, and jointly host an annual bi-club picnic with our sister club (the Fabulous Fifties).  We also conduct one of the largest annual swap meets in the region, allowing us to support many national and local charities.  Since formation, our membership has grown from five families to fifty-seven families in both Illinois and Missouri.

Guests are welcome at the monthly business meetings, 7:30 pm, the last Tuesday of every month.  At this time club membership requires ownership of a TriFive Chevrolet, whether running or not.  Original, modified, or full custom, street or race, builder or finished, doesn't matter ... everyone is welcome!  If you would like more information about OVCC activities or membership, click here.  You can check out a few of the OVCC members rides here.
