Midyear Sting Rays
A Chrome Bumper Corvette Club
1953 thru 1973 Corvettes Only
1963 to 1967 Corvettes Only
The Sacramento, California based Midyear Sting Rays association is a group of 1953 thru 1973 Corvette enthusiasts interested in getting together with like-minded collectors without having many rules or meetings. This informal arrangement that has occasional social car displays and scenic outings via Central Valley and Gold Country back roads, also strives to help others in their restoration process. As an unincorporated association, the group could best be described as a group of friends having some fun with their beautiful Corvettes.
If you would like to participate in an outing, click on the Event Calendar to see what is scheduled, give us a call to RSVP and then just show up. You do not have to join anything, attend meetings or pay dues. All Midyear Corvettes enthusiasts are welcome.
The Chrome Bumper Corvettes were built from 1953 through 1976 and are the first, second and early third generation of the Corvette. They are a milestone in American sports car development with its distinctive fiberglass styling and racing inspired engineering innovations. They were also the fastest production cars (especially with the awesome 427 cubic inch option) available to the general public in the pre-muscle car era of the mid 1960's.
Today these beautiful sports cars still stand out as a tribute to the speed and design achievements of General Motors and are arguably one of the most collectible of any of the Chevrolet Corvettes produced in the last fifty years.
