  • If you're considering going down the track of a restoration you will find members in the club have a wealth of knowledge, many having completed full restorations on their cars.   Ask around, we are keen to share information we have gleaned through our own trial and error (and botch-ups) during a rebuild.
  • Existing members are encouraged to send in their stories for publication here, as well as their photos to share with others.  Please check the events page for scheduled outings, and we welcome you to let us know if you have an activity you think would be of interest to other members.

Whilst The Auckland Corvette Club does not in any way guarantee the following people/companies. The people/companies listed below have been used by club members and these members have found their service & workmanship satisfactory. 

Mechanical Parts: Fast Corvette is an American company which deals solely with mechanical parts. i.e. suspension/brakes/steering etc for corvettes. Both John McKinnon and Graham McDonald have used them for parts and have found they know what they are talking about and are excellent to deal with.

Mechanic: Wayne Frost @ EFI-Tech Ltd Ph: 415-5559. Car Computer Repairs. Diagnostic Information. Fuel Injection. Trustable guy who does a good job. Has secure alarmed premises in Albany if you are worried about leaving your car. Recommended by Paul Sweatman.

Corvette Parts & Servicing: Colin & Robyn Schischka own and operate Covette Parts NZ in Tauranga. They are extremely helpful and make it so easy to use them I don't know why you would use anyone else. Contact them through their website on the links page.  Recommended by KK.

 Paintwork: Murray Clemmens has had his corvette completely repainted by John Lisle at Cascade Auto Refinishers Ph (09) 5764345. Murray advises he is very happy with end result.

Seat Belts: I have found a company in Australia that can either refurbish or rewebb your original belts in the original color. You can contact Darryn Ashwell 09 8324 828 or 021 2381721 for costings.

Photography:  Auckland Corvette Club engaged Scott Photography to document the 2010 Nationals in Hamilton.  CD’s of the event may be purchased using the order form.  Private photography is available by contacting Scott direct: scott.eyre.photo@gmail.com ph.027 2530935

Gauges Rebuilding: Dave MacInnes had an issue with his speedometer on his 68 Vette and had trouble finding someone to help.  He found a guy in Florida: Bill Harrison from Harrison Speedometers (just Google it) - he specialises in rebuilding Vette gauges including speedometers. Dave highly recommends him - he went the extra mile and was great to work with.
