A Spectacular Grand Prix Car Show at the Terminal in the Strip District
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix and the Terminal in the Strip will host a distinct car show in front of the Terminal Building on Smallman Street between 16th and 18th Streets. This promises to be a special display of race and exotic cars, including PVGP race cars and will include the 2023 Corvette Z06 Sweepstakes car that the PVGP is giving away in September.
According to Albert Heiles, PVGP volunteer and director of the new show “this will be a showing of the best the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has to offer. There will be race cars that will compete in Schenley Park, exclusive show cars and some exquisite Ferraris – our 2023 Marque of the Year.”
The PVGP has invited the best cars to represent our event from the track and the showfield. Sorry – there are no spots available but please come down to see the show and shop and eat in the strip.

THE STRIP HISTORIC DISTRICT
While the Strip Historic District initially developed in the mid-nineteenth century as an industrial center with numerous iron mills, foundries and factories, its street patterns and architecture reflects the neighborhood’s history as the epicenter of the regional produce industry and the hub for specialty food products. The Strip District Terminal opened in 1929 as the Pennsylvania Railroad Fruit Auction & Sales Building to serve the tri-state area as a produce distribution hub. Iconic in length and design, the terminal functioned as the economic heart of the Strip District for more than 40 years.
ABOUT THE TERMINAL
Located in Pittsburgh’s bustling Strip District neighborhood, the iconic Terminal was formerly the central hub for the regional wholesale produce industry. Chicago-based developer, McCaffery, in partnership with the Urban Redevelopment Authority and the City of Pittsburgh, has restored the historic building’s energy and vitality. Offering approximately 160,000-square-feet of new retail and restaurant experiences, improved pedestrian access, and a hub for community events, the expansive structure is, once again, a commercial, people-centric destination.
