Wednesday, July 17, 2019 6:00 – 9:00 PM
The Tune-Up is on rain or shine. If you don’t want to bring your registered show car please bring whatever car you can and we will find a spot for you. See you tonight!
Our Tune-Up Party returns to Heinz Field in 2019. The stadium will be surrounded by cars of all kinds and the party flows from the Champions Club out onto the plaza overlooking the point and downtown Pittsburgh. It is the city’s most unique car show and party.
Year of the Snake
There will also be some special cars this year including our Marque of the Year Shelbys and Mustangs and Spotlight cars from Alfa Romeo. The national Shelby and Alfa Clubs are holding their annual conventions with us this year as part of the “Year of the Snake” so we expect to see some special and exciting examples of each.
The best part is that any attendees can bring their own cars to be a part of the show. The Car Showcase will be on the plaza in front of the stadium, facing the river and the point, all along Art Rooney Avenue.
There will also be some new cars on display from our sponsor partners at Ford, Lexus, BMW, MINI, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Bentley and Subaru.
Bring your car, your friends and family and join the party at this summer!
