1933 – 2017

It is with great sadness to report the passing of Noland Adams lifetime Corvette aficionado and author.  We had the pleasure of Noland attending as our special guest Flight 2000. He will be sadly missed by the Corvette community. He leaves behind a legacy that can never be filled. He will be sadly missed.


Sad news indeed, a great guy. So pleased I got to meet him back in 2000.

What sad news. I asked after him on the Solid Axle club stand at the Florida meet last week and was told that he was not in good health.
A sad loss to the C1 community.
Rest in peace Noland.

It is sad to here of the passing of Nolan, as with anyone and unfortunately we never got to meet. The corvette community will miss his vast input. One does have to realise as well, that this is the new reality for the Ncrs. The age profile is like us all – Older. We will all pass before our cars.   Neal & Rachel 

So sad to hear of the passing of the legend who was Noland Adams. Such a great loss to the Corvette community. He will be sadly missed by all enthusiasts of the hobby. Condolences to his family at this difficult time. At the NCRS UK Chapter Flight event in 2000, I had the honour of meeting Noland, who sat behind the wheel of my 66′ Corvette with Trevor Rogers, our Chairman, taking pictures – Happy memories!!  May you rest in peace Noland and a big ‘thank you’ for the contribution you have made to the research and restoration of early Corvettes particularly the C1 and C2 models.
RIP Noland Adams.
Richard Harris. Hon Sec.

I was saddened to hear the news that Noland Adams had recently passed away. I had met with Noland at Bloomington Gold and also at Flight judging here in the U.K. He played an integral part in the research of my 1964 Grady Davis Coupe, without him I would have never tracked down the original bill of sale and documentation from Yenko Chevrolet.

He will be greatly missed by all in the Corvette hobby.
