For all of you that didn’t make it to the PVGP this year, this is for you. Fun was had by all, and even though Saturday had a rough start, I heard there were a surprising amount of cars at the car show. And the race, as always, was the best part!

As I cruise down the streets of Pittsburgh in my beat-up Mazda, I see more and more cars I’d like to own in the future, especially this time of year. Why, you ask? Because it’s the 2nd week of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix!

Ever since I was little, I remember going to car shows with my Uncle on my Mother’s side in the Midwest. He also had a 1968 Ford Mustang in my late Great-Grandma’s garage for upwards of 20 years. In 2003, he decided to fix it up, with completion in 2005, and now he brings it to car shows, winning awards and getting accolades all around the tri-state area of Minneapolis, MN. We used to go to car show after car show just checking out all of the old muscle cars, and some nicer European ones every once a while, too. The engines revving and the smell of the gas, burnt tires, and motor oil still get me excited to this day. But, these car shows have nothing on the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix.
