Pitt Birds Picnic at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix July 15-16, 2017
What a perfect weekend for the Pitt Birds picnic! Sunshine, low humidity, and temperatures in the 80’s enhanced our perfect weekend. There were over seventy-five in attendance and thirty-five Thunderbirds on display. Members also viewed the other displays on the golf course. There were over 2,500 show cars. Ford Motor Co. had the new Ford GT at its display. Other manufacturers exhibited new and upcoming models at their displays. We viewed vintage grand prix races on Saturday and Sunday.
The Tuesday Cruise at the Waterfront was a rainy evening but we still had seven members and five Thunderbirds in attendance. The Wednesday Downtown Parade and Plaza Display started in the rain but cleared up in the late morning and the Wednesday evening Tune-up on the Clemente Bridge was perfect. Proceeds from the PVGP event benefit the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School.
