Who is the Maryland Chevelle Club?
The Maryland Chevelle Club (MCC) is a nonprofit organization, established in 1988. We are dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of all 1964-1972 Chevelles, whether they are stock, modified, or customized.
Do I have to own a Chevelle to Join?
No, you don't have to own a Chevelle to join. We have many members that just love the Chevelle and read or learn more about them. But be forewarned… reading about these great cars may give you the "Chevelle" fever. We cannot be held responsible for what you may just end up purchasing!
Do I have to live in Maryland to Join?
No, you do not have to live in Maryland to join. While many of our members are based in Maryland, we are very proud to have members from Washington DC, Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Georgia, New Mexico, Ohio, New York, and Oklahoma.
Where in Maryland is the Club?
As you can see from the question above, we are all over to say the least. The club address is the address of the president of the club. The current president lives in Bowie, MD.
What does it cost to join the Club?
It costs a mere $25 a year ($45 overseas) to be a member of the club. Payable via check, MO, or now PayPal.
How do I Join the Club?
Joining is very easy. Just fill out an application, mail it in with your dues and you're a member. You DO NOT have to be voted in like some clubs.
Where does the Club meet?
Club Meetings are held each month at various locations around the State, typically at members' homes. Some meetings have been held at other locations such as restaurants, bowling alleys, the beach, and places of employment. Meetings are usually on a Saturday or Sunday on the first weekend of the month.
Do I have to come to the Club meetings?
While it would be great if all of our members came to the meetings, the answer is NO. It is not mandatory for you to come to any of the meetings.
Does the Club publish a Newsletter?
You Bet!! Our Newsletter MCCNews features: (1) tech articles for restorations, performance improvements, detailing, production information and pending laws or bills that affect our hobby; (2) a comprehensive Calendar of Events ; (3) Club News; (4) FREE Classified Advertisements and (5) when available, a feature article on a member's Chevelle or El Camino. In fact, we were just awarded the Golden Quill award for the MCCNews by Old Cars News. MCCNews is published monthly with the exception of our 3 Bi-monthly issues (NOV/DEC, JAN/FEB, MAR/APR). That makes it 9 months out of the year!
Are the classified ads really free?
Yes, it's true. MCC Members may advertise in this section AT NO COST. Ads will run for Two (2) months. DEADLINE for classifieds is the 10th of the month. Include an E-mail address in the ad and it will also go on our website at NO cost.
