is a third generation Corvette driver. Darrell’s Grandfather owned
a 1966 Corvette
when Darrell was in high school, and his dad was an early member of
Metro Corvette Club, which
was one of the first African American Corvette Clubs in Atlanta.
Just as Darrell’s roots in Corvette
culture run deep, the same can be said of his dedication to his
Corvette Club. As Vice-President of
Notorious Vettes Atlanta, (NVA), Darrell is very excited about his
position, and the direction in which
the club is headed. With NVA, growth is rapid. With NVA, there is
a sense of family that goes beyond
the surface and translates into great times with other Corvette
clubs. Further, Darrell will tell you that
it is his personal joy to invite younger Corvette enthusiast to NVA.
He believes it is imperative that the
pride and traditions associated with the Corvette culture, be passed
down, and that the Corvette way
of life continue to thrive and flourish in Atlanta. With that,
Darrell is often seen soliciting members and
encouraging the growth of existing NVA members. Darrell’s current
Corvette collection includes a C5,
a Grand Sport, and, most recently, he blessed his wife with her very
own torch red,
convertible C5 for their first anniversary. What a man!
When not traveling with NVA, Darrell
takes pride in serving his community. He is a member of
Nabbar Temple’s Past Potentates Council and serves as Deacon and
Bible Study Teacher at Zion
Missionary Baptist Church of Roswell, Georgia. In 2010, Darrell he
was appointed to the Georgia
State Board of Barbers by the honorable Governor, Sonny Purdue.
With this assignment, he oversees
the barbering system of the northern district of the state, under
the direction of current Governor,
Nathan Deal. Other accolades include the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference and National
Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
recognitions for Business Man of the Year,
Hero of the Year, and Best Professional Ethics.
Recently, the City of Marietta deemed June 6th of
every year as Darrell Bullock’s Day!
At home, Darrell is quiet and most
reserved. He enjoys the simple things in life, and is devoted to
his wife, Valerie, their children, Brandon and Dara and the newest
edition, their grandson, Christian.
