All shows held throughout the U.S. and Canada – AutoRama, World of Wheels, Cavalcade of Customs – are sanctioned by the International Show Car Association (ISCA,) and exhibitors' vehicles are assigned categories and professionally judged based on ISCA rules. Points are awarded on the 'A' rating based on the size of each show. Cash and awards are distributed to various category and special award winners at each event.
This event was held in Pittsburgh PA at the David Lawrence Convention Center. The David L. Lawrence Convention Center is a significant symbol of the 'new' Pittsburgh Region. As Pittsburgh continues to revolutionize into a regional destination place, this landmark building has become the cornerstone of the transformation. On the cutting edge of design, this innovative structure connects the urban city to the waterfront overlooking the Allegheny River.
