Last weekend I attended the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix.  It is held on the 300 acre grounds of Schenley Park - with racing running on the curvy and heavily-wooded park roads and the huge vintage and modern car exhibitions held on the large rolling hills of the park - each marque nationality on its own field.   I attend many races, vintage races, car exhibitions, councours, car enthusiast events etc - but this was the largest single gathering I have personally seen.  I think the gate is about 200,000 people over the ten day event.  I counted roughly 80 Ferraris in the Italian field.

As a continuation in the series of car enthusiast event photo essays - here are some photos from the event.  This thread will be or the vintage race cars - I will start a seperate thread for the exhibitions (Italian, German, British etc).  If you have questions or need an ID for any specific car - post it in a reply and I'll look it up in the program book.
