Car Show Committee & Car Clubs

Car clubs are the driving force behind our car shows. Each year nearly 2,500 show cars appear on the Bob O’Connor Golf Course at Schenley Park and hundreds more at our Race Week Car Shows and the vast majority of them are represented by local car clubs. There are over 40 car clubs working with us and participating in the shows.

According to Car Show Chairman Bob Speer “the clubs make it all possible. In reality, the Grand Prix owns no show cars and has only a small group of volunteers to manage the overall shows. Donations from car clubs and individual entry fees account for a significant portion of our annual charitable donation.”

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has become the destination for national car club conventions, hosting the BMW Oktoberfest in 2018 and this year with the Shelby Convention and the Alfa Romeo Owners Club.

If you or your car club would like to get involved please email Bob Speer

Car Club Sponsors

These are clubs that go above and beyond by staging large shows and sponsoring tents at Schenley Park. Car Club Sponsors make contributions is excess of the entry fees and some even work with their national organizations to bring in thousands of dollars in extra donations for our charities.
