What does it mean to be part of the Corvette community?

Car clubs are communities of automotive enthusiasts who share a common interest in automobiles in general or in a specific type, such as the classic sports car, the Corvette. Some car clubs are broken down by an appreciation for a particular model year group such as the C3 Corvette. The third generation Corvette, known as the Shark model, ran from 1968 to 1982.
