Area 1 Director's Welcome Message

Jim Karras, Area 1, VCCA Director The Vintage Chevrolet Club of America (“VCCA”) has 12 areas covering the continental United States as well as representation for Canada and an International area representative. Area 1 of the VCCA covers Arizona, Southern California and Southern Nevada and has five local regions. The five regions of Area 1 are: In addition to the 12 geographic areas, the VCCA also has established provisions for non-geographic chapters. The vision for these chapters is to provide a vehicle wherein VCCA members who own or appreciate specific models or types of Chevrolets can form groups within the VCCA for purposes of facilitating the preservation and restoration of the specific type of Chevrolets the group has an interest in. Examples of such chapters could include a Tri-Five Chapter, 490 Chapter, Four Cylinder Chapter, Early Six Cylinder Chapter, Chevelle Chapter, Solid-Axle Corvette Chapter, etc.

Non-geographic chapters may also be formed on the basis of a specific model; groups can also be formed as non-geographic chapters for other Chevrolet related common interest so long as the purpose of the non-geographic chapter is related to the mission of the VCCA which is being dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Chevrolets. An example of such a group is the newly formed VCCA Chat Group. This group formed to exchange ideas and have fellowship about the VCCA though the VCCA’s internet forum Chevy Chatter. This is just another example of how a non-geographic chapter is the perfect vehicle for groups with a specific common interest related to Chevrolets to come together within the VCCA.

Presently, the VCCA has two non-geographic chapters: The term of my office is from January 1, 2011 thru December 31, 2013. As the Area 1 Director and the Non-Geographic Chapter Representative, I represent the interests of the members and regions in Area 1 of the VCCA and the VCCA Non-Geographic Chapters throughout the world on the VCCA board of directors. As your representative on the board of directors, I am available to hear your concerns and comments about issues and topics affecting the VCCA and how the VCCA can better serve the needs of its members and regions.

My goal for this web site is to provide information to both VCCA members located in Area 1, members of a Non-Geographic Chapter, and all other interested visitors to this site about the VCCA and my role as the Area 1 Director and Non-Geographic Chapter Representative. If I can be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me e-mail. My contact info is available on the Contact Info page.

Thank you for your interest and I hope to hear from you soon!
