Rock N Rad at Hartwood Acres

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is a sponsor of Rock N Rad on Sunday August 29 at Hartwood Acres. Come on out and join the fun, bring your car!
The popularity of 1980s and 1990s cars has been growing and growing.   There are some totally gnarly vehicles made in those years and this event is to pay some homage to this radical iconic era.   If you’ve got an 80’s or 90’s era car you can join the show.  It’s at Hartwood Acres on Sunday afternoon, August 29, 2021 from 11:00 am to 7:30 pm. A celebration of all that is righteous..Rad Cars, Food Truck Grindage, and Phat music!
The best part is that the Spin Doctors will be the featured band at the evening concert! The Spin Doctors are an American rock band from New York City,  best known for their early 1990s hits, Two Princes and Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong which peaked on the Billboard charts!

What is Rock N Rad?

Several auto aficionados where chatting that no one is really featuring rad era cars in the car show rich Western PA area and were overheard

“There’s rad shows starting to happen all around the country but they don’t feature music and other cool 80’s &  90’s stuff”
“We should have a show…with music!”
Followed by a unanimous “Cool, I’m in!”
​That’s the story.
