PVGP – Another Special Year Planned for 2016

  • Last month at the Red CARpet Premiere of the Pittsburgh International Auto Show, PVGP presented the 2015  donation check to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School for $400,000 – a new record!  Congrats to PVGP and all of you for making it happen!  You’re helping change the lives of so many in ways you could never possibly imagine.
  • As you know, PVGP Chair Ed helped sell the Joplin 356 for a record $1.7M in December due to his endless promotional efforts of this car which he was able to get for the PVGP last year.  Not one to rest on his laurels, he’s making the final touches on ARPCA PVGP 2016 Party, but safe to say it will be another special year. Watch the Rundschau and web for full details.
  • For this year’s PVGP event, we are offering a truly unique opportunity for Club members to have your own Porsche included in a limited edition panoramic print created by renowned artist Linda Barnicott. The print is a beautiful rendition of our Porsche corral at Schenley Park, and showcases a portion of the track with vintage race cars, and other iconic Pittsburgh scenes. This is your opportunity to have your own car drawn in the picture on the lawn, and enjoy the memory of the PVGP long after the show is over! This project is the premier fundraising initiative to meet the club’s fundraising goal for the PVGP. Please review the pen and ink rendering below. Cars shown in this sketch are for illustrative purposes only. The final print will be a full color 16″ by 20″ signed and numbered lithograph. Participants who choose to make a donation will be able to reserve a location in the print and have their car accurately recreated in the scene. For a larger donation, you can have your car featured in the front rows! You can also have more than one car included. All donors will receive a signed and numbered print. However, the top seven donors will receive an artist-enhanced color archival giclée print worth considerably more. The original work of art will be available for silent auction at the ARPCA tent during this year’s Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (a value of $6,400). If you are interested in becoming a part of this worthwhile and unparalleled opportunity, please contact John Malobicky at (724) 224-3782 or e-mail  Space is limited, so respond at your earliest opportunity. Photographs of your Porsche must be submitted within the next few weeks to guarantee artwork is available for this summer’s PVGP.
