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 and is incorporated in the state of Illinois as a non-profit institution.  The Okaw Valley Classics is very active, publishing a monthly newsletter, conducting workshops and cruises, attending car shows, hosting holiday celebrations, and jointly hosting an annual bi-club picnic with a sister club.  The OVCC also conducts one of the largest annual swap meets in the region, allowing it to support many national and local charities.  Since formation, the OVCC 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 ... they're all welcome!  If you would like more information about Okaw Valley Classics activities or membership, click here.  You can check out some of the OVCC members rides here.
