Pictures from the 2012 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP) and international car show...
For those that don't about the PVGP, it is the only vintage car race in the United States that is still run on city streets. It is also accompanied by an amazing international car show comprised of modern and classic cars. Most of the charity raised goes to help the fight against Autism. You will see everything from 1930's Rolls Royce's to brand new Lexus LFA's and Lamborghini Aventadors. We went on Saturday and walked a good portion of the show, but not all of it. I believe it took about 3 and a half hours! You can easily spend 2 days looking at all the cars. The race course winds through Shenley Park to the side of the show, so you can walk for a while, then stop to check out the races. If you are a BMWCCA member, you get free Spaten all day with the registration of your car in the car show. There are also lunches, refreshments, etc available for purchase. I understand Wayne Carini (Chasing Classic Cars; F40 motorsports) was there this year racing an original Lemans car, but I did not get an opportunity to investigate more. I saw a couple of pictures of his car from earlier in the week.
I had the opportunity to park the X5 and M3 in the BMWCCA car corral this year and take some pictures of the event. There are over 200, but I still missed a huge number of cool cars. I hope you enjoy them!
