2017 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix

It was another fantastic year at Pittsburgh's Schenley Park, home of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, and for the 35th year in a row, it did not dissapoint. People came from all over to participate in the Concours d'Elegance, and to watch the races which run through the park. I'm told that this year's event raised some $450,000 for the Autism Society of Pittsburgh, as well as the Allegheny Valley School.

Highlights for me included a pre-production Ford GT hidden "off to the side" in a small wooded area of the Concours, as well as a first look at the motorcycle collection. I also took the opportunity to have some fun with a new fisheye lens.

On a sad note, I learned that Steve Webber, longtime media director and the guy that got me involved with this event to begin with, passed away this past year. He was a great guy and will be missed.
