The 350-mile driving route passes through picturesque mountains, Amish farm communities, state and national forests, and fantastic two-lane roads that wind through canopies of brilliant fall foliage. Lunch en-route at the Emporium Country Club and complete the day with a catered dinner and Porsche car show at Narcisi Winery.
ARPCA will host a summer driving event (rally) to replace the Schenley Park weekend in late July. More details to follow….
Excerpts from the – Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association:
After consulting with our committees, sponsors and city officials the PVGP has decided to cancel its July 17-26, 2020 Race Week.
Most major automotive events throughout the summer have already been canceled due to COVID-19. The PVGP waited as long as possible before making a decision, hoping the situation in Pennsylvania would improve. This is a difficult decision, but I am encouraged by the patience and enthusiasm of our volunteers.
Wednesday, August 5th, 6:45 to 9:00 PM
We are organizing a “Drive-By” past Fred Yagulli’s house to show him support while he battles against a health concern.

2020 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix – by Ed Rice
Sorry folks – I cannot do it. I simply cannot have a summer go by without having some sort of Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix activity! I know this year’s event was effectively cancelled due to the Corona virus, but there are still some things we can do to celebrate what is our Club’s single biggest social and charitable event each year.
On Sunday, July 26th, we would have been parking on the lawn for Day 2 of the PVGP at Schenley Park. This year, that day is going to be a quiet, uneventful Sunday morning. Many will go to services or enjoy breakfast out on the back deck and listen to the birds.
I on the other hand, plan to drive down to Schenley Park, and do an informal “parade lap” or two around the road course. Read more
