In 1974, my friends, Doug Moorhead and Danny Howell, set out on an adventure. They were starting a club for 1955-1957 “all models” Chevrolets. The only other club of this type was the National Nomad Club. Membership in the newly formed Classic Chevy Club was $10/year. In December of 1974, the first copy of the monthly magazine was mailed to the club’s 300+ members. This first issue consisted of eight black and white pages. By the second issue, plans and promotions were well underway for the first Classic Chevy Convention.
