The Glenmoor Gathering Reunion 2015

Not that long ago, there was a tremendous event held in Ohio that featured some of the finest automobiles in the world. This celebration was The Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Automobiles and it entertained thousands for 18 years. Each one of those years was a great one celebrating everything from the rarest cars ever made to a wonderfully impractical Russian boat. It was sad to see it all end after the 2012 season as it had become a favorite stop on the ever growing concourse schedule for many. I’ve missed that show quite a bit, so when I was told there was going to be a “Reunion” this year, it made my day and was a no brainer as far as getting out there to attend.

The location on the grounds of the Glenmoor Country Club always suited the original show very well and I looked forward to visiting again. The weather was perfection and the turnout impressive with a wide array of motoring greats on hand for the viewing. At that moment, it was probably the only place on earth where you could look at a 1954 Gullwing Mercedes one moment and then step down the field a bit and find yourself standing in front of a 1988 Yugo GVX. Quite a range in what was on hand for those in attendance and certainly something for everyone.

I hope there will be more events like this in the future. It’s a great way to celebrate the show that once was as well as catch up with old friends and make new ones. Enjoy the accompanying photos and please follow this link to find the full gallery of images from the day. Keep your eyes and ears open for a future event, too as you won’t want to miss it! Enjoy!

2015 PVGP Blacktie and Tailpipes Gala Recap

The Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala – It’s the place to be seen and an event that ushers in the first race weekend of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix with a high degree of speed, beauty and style. And why? Quite simply, you just can’t usher in a huge automotive event like this without an elegant gathering that champions charity and the automobile. Every year, the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix does it in style with the Blacktie & Tailpipes Gala.

This year the South Hills Country Club hosted the event and did another beautiful job of it. The PVGP celebrated there in 2013 and the club did such a superb job hosting, it just made sense to go back and do it all again. It’s a great venue and the turnout was again, superb as you can see by the attached photos.

The cars – and one big 1960 Peterbilt – arriving at the event were showcased and focused upon as much as the well-dressed guests they transported. It was the whole package and the evening was filled with wonderful food, people, conversation, and charity. A combination that always works and did again this year.
