10 Wonderful Years And Counting !

The Official C5/C6 Registry celebrated it's tenth anniversary in 2007 and this year, is the 10th year of the Birthday Bash.

Check out the "previous bash coverage" link on the left and relive the last ten years of one of the most popular Corvette events ever... and you'll wonder... "how did it all start ?"

Back in 1998 C5 Registry directors Dan Adovasio and Jake Drennon got thinking  ....  Labor day 1997 they had founded a car club,  and dedicated to the remarkable new C5 Corvette.  Now, in 1998, the best Corvette ever would be a year old and what better way to celebrate this fantastic new automobile than to have a  "Birthday Party".

Welcome Members  to the April  2005 Bash!

A phone call was made to the National Corvette Museum, the place where Dan and Jake started the Registry at the Labor day celebration in '97. After some negotiation, and planning, the party was on! Scheduled for the last weekend of March,1998, at the Mecca for Corvette enthusiasts, the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The Official C5 Registry is now the Official C5-C6 Registry, and the "Bash" is now 10 years old. The C5-C6 Registry has experienced phenomenal growth over it's 11 year history, and the C5-C6 Registry Bash and become the largest regular event at the NCM.

For our members who for one reason or another can't make the journey to Bowling Green, and for the non members who are missing the fun and enthusiasm of these C5-C6 Registry annual events, we've posted our event activities  on the web each of the past nine years, and this year is no exception. Click here to re-live the first Birthday Bash in photos, then return to follow us through the events  of  the 2008 celebration.

The web, electronic cameras and internet technologies have changed.  The fabulous C5 has evolved into the awesome C6 and the ZR1 is back in a whole new package, but those of us in the Registry "Still Play With Cars", and we still have one heck of a lot of fun!
