The SJCC is a social organization formed for the purpose of gaining information on, exchanging ideas about, hosting or sponsoring Corvette-oriented activities and events for, and mutual enjoyment of America's Sports Car, The Chevrolet Corvette!

SJCC turned 50 years old in July 2007. The first official club meeting was held in 1957. Back in those days, the membership consisted of a very small group meeting at a restaurant - somewhere around 20 members. SJCC was even into the space program during this period and performed some testing for NASA (to our advantage, of course). Members Zoltan Petrany, John McVeigh and Vincent Collins contacted some NASA people and came up with an idea of an ice-cooled suit (looked like long johns) for the SCCA racers to use. It had a circulating water system that pumped cold water through it with a system to monitor the racer's vital signs. This turned out to be one of the forerunners of some of the clothes used by the astronauts today. By the late 1960s, the Club activity calendar was filled with rallyes, Econo-runs and invitations to participate in other car club's autocrosses.

Today, the Club's Calendar of Events lists many events, ranging from car shows to drag racing, and from autocrosses to parades. There are also rallyes, cruises, road trips and parties. Each year a number of club events help support local and national charities such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, Houston SPCA, Houston Humane Society and the Houston 100 Club.

Each member receives a monthly newsletter, The Grand Sport , telling you where we've been, where we're going, and the fun we're having along the way! Stay tuned to this website for recent event updates.

Club meetings are the first Friday of each month at 8pm excluding July and December. Click on Calendar of Events for club meeting location and information. A casual dinner at a local establishment follows the meeting for all who wish to attend.
