CORVETTES OF MN
The first and original Corvette Club of MN. Est 1960
Welcome to Corvettes of MN
Here are a few quick links to finding more fun with your Corvette and finding new friends that share your passion.
COM was formed in 1960 by a small group of Corvette owners and enthusiasts. From the beginning, the only requirement for membership has been an enthusiastic interest in Corvettes.
COM offers a number of fun events and also shares events with other Corvette clubs in the state and region. Please do join us and be a part of this fun car culture we call Corvettes of MN!
Participate in Minnesota’s first Corvette Club at whatever level you desire. Depending on your interests, be an officer, a worker at events, plan events, or participate as an entrant. Our club puts on autocross events, a road rally, and participates with other GM clubs in an annual swap meet and car show at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds.
COM was established in 1960 and was the first Corvette Club in MN. Early events included rallies, autocrosses and ice racing.
These are a brief description of our activities, with links to further info on each event. To see when our events take place, go to the Events Page for event registration and dates.
One of the most exciting and easy ways for you to enjoy time behind the wheel of your car is at one of our autocross events. An autocross is a timed event; running against the clock you compete by going from start to the finish line in the shortest amount of time on a flat paved surface (such as a very large parking lot).
COM has sponsored a Fall Cruise for many years, and we try to do a spring or summer Cruise as well. A Cruise is similar to our Rallyes, but does not include any competitive events. We typically begin at a parking lot or McDonald’s, and usually our cruises do not include any entry fee, or at most a small donation to a charity. After signing the standard Waiver form, entrants receive a set of Route Instructions, again designed to keep everyone on course. Our Cruise events are open to any vehicles, but most of the cars will be Corvettes.
Over the years, Corvettes of Minnesota has put on a variety of rallyes including “Hare and Hound”, Time-Speed-Distance (TSD), “Picture”, “Monte Carlo”, and other types of creative events. Currently the Rallyes that have proven most in line with our members interests are what are described as “Chance” or “Gimmick” rallyes.
Corvettes of Minnesota is a co-sponsor and active participant in the annual General Motors Car Clubs Association (GMCCA) car show. This large show is held the first weekend of June each year at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. In addition, many COM members show their prize Corvettes at other car shows and concours events held throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
During each year, COM has several Social Events. We generally start the year with our Annual Awards Party, where we recognize Board members from the previous year, and the upcoming year. We’ve also on occasion hold picnics, either as part of a summer rally, or in celebration of a club anniversary. Many of our Cruise or Rally events also include a Social aspect, with events starting at a venue with food and tables available, and ending at another food and beverage venue.
First Wednesday of each month; Feb. thru Dec., at:
8605 Lyndale Ave S,
Bloomington, MN 55420
Each of our monthly meetings from February through December, are an opportunity to gather for some social time and a meal prior to our business meeting.
