Corvette Owners Club of San Diego

Corvette Owners Club of San Diego

COCSD was founded in 1956 and incorporated in 1959. We have about 200 members, mostly from the San Diego area, but all across the U.S.

COCSD hosts events such as fun runs, parties and kart racing. We participate in parades and homecomings at the request of many organizations in and around San Diego.

We support the San Diego Center for the Blind and Vision Impaired by hosting the Main Street America car show each year. COCSD usually holds a toy drive in December for needy children in the area.

Our History

Around April of 1956, Al Carroll, by then a true Corvette enthusiast, was convinced other people were just as excited about America’s true sports car. With the assistance of then ACME Chevrolet to serve as our first sponsor and provide a meeting place, efforts began to obtain members.  COCSD was founded.  By late 1956 officers had been elected.

Early in 1957, our membership was about 52.  Our club was known and we were receiving inquiries from around the country from people interested in forming a Corvette club in their area.

In 1958, over the kitchen table of members Ray and Marie Taylor (COCSD Member #2), a final draft of by-laws was completed and plans were made to incorporate.  COCSD was incorporated in California as a non-profit corporation on February 27, 1959 as corporation number 369837.

This official logo of COCSD was adopted in 1958 and remains unchanged today – a proud heritage.

Since our founding in 1956, COCSD has been a continuously active club.  We are the oldest continuously active Corvette clubs in the world to: “We believe that COCSD is the oldest continuously active Corvette Club in existence”.  We are very fortunate that many of our long time members saved correspondence, newsletters and photos which are part of our historical archive.  Our historical file correspondence includes letters as old as April 14, 1957, responding to letters of March 1957.  Our rich and documented history serves our members of today and preserves the Corvette heritage for those members who will continue COCSD in the future.
