So why are you here? Perhaps you have a newer Corvette and are just curious about the first generation solid axle Corvettes (1953-1962) and the Solid Axle Corvette Club (SACC). Perhaps you own or want to acquire a first generation  Corvette. It doesn't matter why you're here, but we're glad you are.

 

Michigan SACC is one of eight chapters of the national Solid Axle Corvette Club focused on the preservation and pleasure of owning and driving the C-1 Corvette; those manufactured and sold by General Motors from 1953 through 1962.

 

Welcome to C-1 heaven; we want you to enjoy your visit..Stay as long as you like. Hope to see you soon on the road.

Despite offering a powerful V-8 engine for the first time in 1955, Corvette sales dropped to only 700 units and the model was nearly cancelled.
