ABOUT US

 

Vintage Certification program has evolved due to the lack of recognition for unrestored cars. The Corvette hobby had two organizations NCRS & Bloomington Gold which recognized the need and had programs, however there was a void for other unrestored makes and models at shows. Case in point, in 1996 while at the ICC Nationals I entered my unrestored 19k mile 1967 RS/SS L78 Camaro into the show. Well, just like all other events my unrestored car was judged and classified with the restored class, since no unrestored class existed. Well as luck would have it, Brett Merryman who I had previously corresponded with actually judged my car (he happens to be the original owner of a stunning unrestored 1967 Camaro). Like me he was disappointed in the current judging programs and wanted to develop an unrestored class. Brett set the ground work and now 15 years later this program has grown from its roots of certifying first generations Camaros, to now embracing virtually all marques and models, with specific teams of judges specializing in each marque and model. 

 

Although our program has grown from humble beginnings, every event is truly a first, because our team is committed to raising the bar and discovering the pedigree and DNA of these time capsules.

Vintage Certification

*** Update I was able to track my 1967 RS/SS L78 Camaro after 16 years and repurchased  on 12/15/17. This was the car for me that piqued my interest and my motivation in the Vintage Certification program.
