Downtown Pittsburgh Grand Prix Car Display July 2006
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix 'set up shop' on Wednesday afternoon in three prominent downtown Pittsburgh locations prompting many workers to take an extended lunch to 'check-out' the vehicles. Many of the vehicles that were in attendance will be participating, in some fashion, at this year's PVGP. The vehicles assembled at three locations in Pittsburgh, the PPG Place, US Steel Building, and the entrance to Point State Park. The goal was to raise awareness for the weekend's activities and to give on-lookers an opportunity to enjoy the cars and talk with the owners.
The locations chosen are some of the most beautiful and strategic locations in all of Pittsburgh. The entrance to Point State Park is also the site where the French built Fort Duquesne back in 1754. It is also the location where Pittsburgh's Allegheny and Monongahela rivers intersect to form the Ohio River.
The other two locations, PPG Place and the US Steel Building, provided some of the nicest real-estate around, with open courtyards and scenic skyscrapers.About Pittsburgh
