As for the trivia related to how this publication was named, this topic was discussed during our last Club Meeting on Feb. 8th. From the NCCC website, "[...Back in the early days when Chevy was still involved in racing programs, and just as the Corvette was beginning to mature as a sports car (meaning mid-to-late '50s), the factory race teams all had their Corvettes painted white with two, wide, blue stripes running from the grille, back over the hood and deck to the back end of the car. These stripes were referred to in racing jargon of the day as "bars"...thus the name.]" Now you know something that is a good trivia question to spring on an unsuspecting, friendly Corvette aficionado!!!
