The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is excited to announce that Corvette will remain as our 2021 Marque of the Year! Corvette has been a staple at our Race Week car shows and more recently on the track at the PVGP Historics at Pitt Race. Below is the schedule of events for this coming July where Corvette owners of all years are encouraged to participate and put their Corvette in the show – all years are welcome.  Many thanks to the Western PA Chevy Dealers for their support – we are looking forward to seeing the new C8 Corvette in Pittsburgh next year. The Corvette was named by MotorTrend magazine as the 2020 Car of the Year!

Charity Event
Our mission is to produce a world-class vintage automotive event in order to raise funds to help provide residential care, treatment and support for autistic and intellectually/developmentally disabled individuals in the Pittsburgh region. Because of the generous support and contributions from our sponsors, and the dedication of our volunteers, we have been fortunate enough to donate more than $5 million since 1983.
